Word to  this effect had come indirectly from  Victoria a few weeks ago, bnt author  itative confirmation that the work  would be undertaken in 1919 was furnished on Sunday, when Hon. Dr. King,  minister, of works, was at Creston  and in response to the bridge question  promptly assured The Review "that  proyision has peen made for the cost  of this structure in the bridge appropriation this year, and the district engineer has been instructed to proceed  with construction of the high level  bridge at the earliest* possible moment."  Work \vill be continued on the new  road in the Arrow Creek section  which was started last faII but had to  go uncompleted due to the excessively  wet season. AH necessary repairs will  be made to the Valley roads and some  needed new work on a modest scale  will also be undertaken.  The building of the road between  Sirdar and Kuskanook, thus furnishing the through auto highway will be  gone oa withprovided it fs decided to  use the southern B.C. route via the  Crow's Nest for ,the aerost-Canad.'S,  highway. Surveyors are already out  looking over possib* ; routed'for this  Canadian hign way in other parts of  B.C., and the decision as to these will  have something to do with the final  '��������� and definite allocation of the road  route. Just at present it seems reasonably safe to assume that the road via  Creston Valley will ultimately be  chosen. J _  1918 pfosuses to be the busiest year  the provincial works.department   has  had fop.some time, the total   expenditures pmvided for in the iive   directions in -which the minister of works  has , supervision     mounting ^*ip    to  S89.754.500. Of this $1,650,000 wilfbe expended on railway   effort���������almost the  total amount heing required for the  extension of the Pacific Great Eastern.  $1,129,000 will %e spent on  surveys,  well drilling, etc.,   with one million of  this set aoart for the South Okanagan  deyelopment      scheme���������to      provide  about 23,000 acres of irrigated land for  saidier labor and settlement.   $1,600,-  000 is available ior land clearing  and  and devolopment which  includes   the  Simias country   reclamation   project.  For the maintenance of roads,   streets  and wharves $2,623,000 is set out. with  ' $93,000 appropriated   for   capital   expenditure on roads, bridges and wharves, and $46,000   capital   expenditure  ou ferries. The expenditm-e under Aid  to Mines vote is placed at $100,000. The  capital  expenditure for   maintenance  and repairs of buildings  is  figured   at  $320,000, nnd on bridges $310,000. There  is $200,000   assured  for  the Johnson  Street bridge in Victoria, and  for tho  returned soldier housing Bch*'nii,1   including . land     clearing    operations,  $1,650,000.  At a time when i*vei*y effort should  be made to ensure all possible eniyloy-  uient, in view of the returned soldier  problem, this budget showing provision for ahi'o.;l a SI0,000,01)') outlay it-  pretty good evidence that the works  department has realized its responsibility and Is ready to do its full share  in meeting any emergency in the way  of employment, as well as in other  directions.  mSmmmm-tm-dimi  mvm^x.v.^0 vm40  folks supplied the highest priced  bos at the social in town on Monday  night���������with Alice Siding nowhere in  sight.  Miss Mable Craigie is a visitor this  week with friends at Wardner.  y  y  The Fruit Growers Union is unloading a car of cement this*������ week, the  greater part of which will be used by  G. Cartwright for a new barn foundation.  Master Bob Dodds bad a birthday  party on Monday afternoon and eyening, when most of the little folks  were on hand for the games and supper, and report having a whale of a  good time, all of them.  G. Cartwright has been busy this  week moving the fence along the C.P.  R. track back to about fifteen feet  from the rails, thus giving him in the  neighborhood of an extra acre of land  to crop. Hitherto the C.P.R. has held  this strip for garden area'for the sec-*  tion men. although never used by  them at all. **-*  The Finance Committee, who had  charge of the Board of Trade box social takes this means of expressing the  board's a^^i'scla'tioii of the wnjlc  done by the many ladies and gentlemen who contributed towards the  success of the evening. The board are  specially indebted to the Creston Mercantile Co., who donated the hall free,  and to the Orchestra who donated the  major part of their .charge for the evening's playing.  In this connection we would like to  thank the general public for the manner in which they turned out and  assisted with their" enthusiasm and  money. The Board of Trade feel that  of greater,importance than the financial side of the affair is the fact that  such representative and hearty support goes to show that the work being done by the board for the benefit  of the district is appreciated by all.  H. Nicholson arrived on Friday  from Vancouver and has joined the  C-. P. Paulson staff of employees.  J. Frame of the Sash & Door Co.  spent the week-end at Nelson.  Mrs. E. MeGonegal was a week-end  visitor at Creston. the guest of Mrs.  F. Belanger. -  B. Smith left on Saturday to spend  the Easter week with his parents at  Cranbrook. ������  Billy Belanger was Creston's only  representative at the uauce given by  Mr. and Mrs. Johnson at the hotel on  Saturday night.  yO'.. Dandeno was a-visitor at Cran;*.  broolc op Saturday, returning on the  Sabbath.  Lapoiute was among the week-end  visitors at Creston.  J. Attwood and Ron. Lidgate of  Creston were visitors here between  trains on Sunday. "**'  H. A. McKowan of the Sash S~ Door  Co. spent the week-end witji his family at Cranbrook.  E. Benson arrived from Kimberley  on Tuesday, and will be employed at  the hotel for the present.  Dr. Rntledge of Cranbrook is paying Kitchener a few days' visit this  week.  T. Midford and E. Driffel were  week-end visitors at Creston the formal* remaining over the Easter Monday uiiiice.  Victor and Omer Geroux were  Kitchener's representatives nt the box  social given by the board of trade at  Creston on Monday night.  Local and Personal  Mr.  and Mrs. Angus Cameron    of  Sandon    arriyed  yesterday, and   n.v&-  guests of the iatter's parents, Mr. and  Mrs. T. Mawson.  *  Mrs. Geo. Young was hostess at the  Red Cross tea this week, when the  cash insake totalled $2.60. The only  other money to acknowledge as ��������� coming in is  $3.75 from the Women's In-  SuTtuijS.  Now that the early wild flowers are  available the soldiers' monument is  reoeiving attention in the way of floral decoration. A profusion of tiger  lillies were in evidence for Easter  Sunday  Ticket 230 was the   winner   of   the  and the buttonholes not less than si's  in number.  Fred Hurry and Bazil Keir arrived  from Vancouver on Saturday for a few  days' vacation with Creston friends.  They are both taMng "voeatioDal  training under military auspices in  that city, and will be returning next  week to complete their courses.  The newest newcomer to the Valley  is Mr. and Mrs. Stern and family, who  arrived on Tuesday from Spirit "Lake,  in the Alberta section of the Peace  River country. They haye taken rooms  oyer the Auditorium, pending the purchase of a ranch home in the Valley-  Owing to the canvass of the whole  Valley being incomplete the meeting  on Wednesday night to decide upon a  soldiers memorial had to be adjourned until later. From present appearances it would look as if the memorial  would have to take the form af a monument.  ������  Creston G.W.V.A., which   was   organized early in the year   but   which ^  at that time elected   only   temporary  officers, is meeting on Saturday night  for the election of permanent officials  Si-net       f-r\ir~0.T\--d--~.������-    ' ir\tr������jr������*������������������*5r������������������**S^-T.*r������'*-        ��������� ^.m-cxes^ atw.  -������**...w������    .   .������������������������������j/f\. wv       vi'kf^twiUA-ut-k-L'tt/il*        VAWWd  branch   now   has  a   membership   of  about 25. ���������_.

Besides affording the maximum   of  pleasure throughout, the event was a  splendid financial succest; when all the  accounts are paid the Board will have  a balance of $250 to carry on publicity  effort this year. Of course   the  factor^  that contributed largely to the money  making feature was the liberal supply  of baskets that were turned in by the  ladies for the purpose of auction.     Iti  the   neighborhood   of   sixty   baskets  were in evidence, everyone   of   which  had received considerable artistic   attention in the mH.kin0' u***..   Jiisfc  hev?  ahandsonae they were as a whole is bes  evidenced in the   fact   that   those   in  charge felt compelled   to  offer   three  prizes instead   of   ene,   as   originally  planned, for the most  artistic   boxes,  and the three judges, Messrs. Dewar,  Barber and Henderson, had   rather  a  delicate task   picking out  even   tbe  three best of the   galaxy   of  dandies.  However, their awards   were   quit*?"  popular, first prize going to Mrs. C. G.  Rodgers. whose basket   was a   purely  Easter idea tastefully   done,   even   io  including a couple of the time   honored baby chicks.    Miss Muriel Hobden  came second with a miniature airship  that was at once popular both   as   to  design   and   general   makeup,   while  Mrs. Geo.

As  the railway has a heavy construction  progiame for 1019 Mike will likely ba  away all season.  The Easter services in Creston  churches this y< ar were better attended than for almost half a dozen years  back. At Christ Church there were  about thirty at the communion feature of the morning services.  There was a fairly representative  turnout of.workers at cemetery clean  op operations on Wednesday afternoon, and the graveyard present"  slightly improved appearance as a [result of the co-operative effort.

It is expected the Creston Valley will be asked for $500���������about half  the 1018 assessment.  Another member of the Creston Forestry Draft got home on Friday in  Pte. John A.

It was  on April 27th, 1802, that F. G. Little  and J. W. Dow staked the first lots on  what i.s now the Creston townsite.  The mayor recalls with deep feeling  that in at lei.stone important ������������������especfc  Creston of to-dnv is precisely the sunto  as in 1802. It was a 'dry" town then  nnd is still dry���������or almost so.  a basket whose arrHOj'veinent of   Sags  and a   correetly   done   color  scheme  I tamed lately caught the eye.  "   "Taheprl^e  at the highest' "price was^-^csi1-- Jsy a v  syndicate' com posed-:: of Mi������ses: Jane  Long, Ruth Klingensmith and' Estella  McKelvey, lnnch for six comprising  its contents, and which i fetched $18.  A close second was Miss Zalla Johnson,'whose box went to $17. These  were the notable ones as to price, although there were a number that  went up toward $8, while the average  for the lot was over $3. The auctioneering was done by Fred Waylett,  who had the knack of getting the  good prices without any undue delay  on the part of the* bidders.  Four prises were provided at cards,  Mrs. H. B. Downs and Mrs. Pettigrew  making the  ladies'   high   scores, and  Mr. Barraclough and A.   R. Swanson  capturing the gentlemen's honors.  The box lunch was a time saver in  serving supper, and be it said that  these who failed to secure a box wore  well provided in the refreshment line  by their more fortunate friends. A  competent supply of waiters provided  the coffee, etc., and with lunch disposed of the floor was cleared and  dancing was indulged in until about ii  a.ii!., Roy Telfoi-d handling* the hop  feature, and Creston orchestra supplying excellent music. The earlier-  evening features were also considerably enlivened by several selections  by the orchestra.  The Board of Trade box social,  whist and dance on Monday night  was the most enjoyable function and  biggest money maker of the kind ever  put on here.

Including the door receipts and the raffle of the geese the  board expects to clean up $2T>0 on the  affair, which sum will be used for pub  licil.y effort this year.

Particularly docs the West feel bitter ovcr the treatment accorded it in  connection -with the customs tariff.  The West does not desire to destroy or even embarrass the manufacturing industries of the East, but it  I does feel that the East is taking an  "undue advantage of the tariff protec-  ] tion afforded their manufactures to  impose heavy burdens on Western  producers, and that, while accusing  the West of a desire to destroy Eastern industry, the East itself is quite  careless of the effect of the tariff on  all Western development and prosperity. While this feeling has existed for some time, it did not become  general in thc West until the East, at  the behest of thc manufacturers, defeated thc seciprocity agreement  which dealt principally with thc natural products of and markets for  the West and hardly, touched manufactures at all. Thc attitude of the  East on this question is regarded as  having  been, absolutely  selfish.  Finally, the West resents thc habitual attitude of mind in the East  which accuses .Western people with  lack of patriotism and open disloyalty  because they, as free Canadian citizens, iu a legitimate and constitutional manner, advocate and support certain policies which thc East do*cs not  *-*  11KC.

Threatened  With Paralysis  The present day Western viewpoint  in regard to matters which are the  subject of sharp differences of opinion  fcctwecu East and West, is the culmination of conflicting views on numerous issues covering a period of  years, nnd has not been arrived at  hastily. It has its foundation on a  cteep-rooted conviction that thc East  looks upon the West as thc home of  an inferior people, a lot of wild agitators who are ready and willing to  destroy Eastern industry to gain  their own ends, a conviction that thc  East acis on the.principle that thc  West should be humbly thankful for  anything the East may    see    fit    to  grant it.    This conviction has result-jof any permanent,  ed from past events, some of which j national policy  It may be well to refer to briefly.  As pointed out in a previous article, thc East holds the view that it  built tlie C.P.R. for the benefit of the  West, and that the East has borne  the  burden   of  thc   national   cost     of  group of politicians or another group  whenever any great national policy is  to be determined at the. polls, arid  the issue is thereby switched from  thc main track and the national development and welfare of all Canada  bedevilled. The East may enjoy this  style of administering Canada's affairs, but the West has come to recognize that it is the basic cause of  the slowness of Canada's growth in  population and national development  and largely responsible for the lack  well    considered  Severe   * rJervous  Numbness of Hands and Feet  Was Most Alarming, but Satisfactory Restorative  Treatment Was  Found  Port Haney, B.C., April IS.���������This  very interesting statement from Mrs.  Stinson in regard to her cure is  vouched for by her pastor, Rev.

Fortunately, Mrs. Stinson heard of  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food while yet  there was time to set up the building-  up process, and by the persistent use  of this food cure has obtained restoration.  Mrs. H. Stinson, Port Haney, B.C.,  -writes:  "I have been very sick with nervousness, and this trouble seemed to  settle in my head.

Tb!* follows the definite decision on  the terms of reparations for war damages, whereby $5,000,000,000 must be  paid within the next two years, and  iu inter-allied commission assess the  remaining damage for a period of  thirty years, beginning May, 1921.  Thus, two of tbc great obstacles  which stood in the path of the rapid  attainment of peace have been removed, and the period of extreme  tension over the inaction- and the  failure to secure tangible results is  succeeded by revived confidence over  the great advance towards a permanent settlement  The council of four has reached an  agreement on the Saar valley. The  the valley unchanged but accords to  agreement leaves sovereignty over  France free of duty sufficient coal for  tins Lorraine Iron industry and to  replace tlie production of the mires  destroyed in the Lens mining district, with the privilege to the Germans of restoring Lena mines and  thus relieving the Saar valley of that  charge.  This agreement remove* one' of  the most difficult obstacles to the  conclusion of peace.  While the tension has been greatly  reduced, it is not entirely removed,  ss much depends on the continuation  of progress with respect to the remaining obstacles, notably the Saar  valley, the Rhine frontier, the Adriatic issue and a number of lesser issues which are still short of final  agreement.  The agreement on responsibility  for the war issue continued to have  called for compromise between divided reports presented by the commission, of which Secretary Lansing  is chairman. There was a practical  agreement on the general responsibility "of the German emperor for bringing on the War, but division occurred  ae to whether it Avas feasible to bring  him to- justice before an international  tribunal.  ������r*f  A    I.

Must Agree to League Terms  Germany      Will     Become    Member  When Faithfulness is Assured  London. ��������� Thc difficulty of putting  the text of the covenant of the league  of nations in the peace treaty tha*  Germany is to sign, if Germany is  not a party to the covenant, wh ch  she, by her signature accepts, says  the Paris correspondent of the Westminster Gazette, has been cleared up  by a skilful piece of draughtsmanship. The covenant, as it will appear  in the treaty, is so worded that while  the existence and jurisdiction of the  league will be recognized by Germany, that country will not bc immediately received as a nicmocr. She  will, however, cxr-rcss her full -.ccord  Huns Cannot Pay For Food  Berlin.���������The shortage of coal, owing to strikes, is given officially as  the reason for Germany's inability to  continue payments for entente food  supplies now arriving, since coal was  chiefly relied upon as a mc*.ns to settle this indebtedness. The announcement adds that coal production continues to falter, preventing the  manufacture of articles wanted  abroad. "German economic life must  collapse before autumn, and the food  condition will bc worse than ever."  Why Can't I  Get To Sleep ?

The reason for the allies' retirement was the constantly., increasing  menace of the Bolsheviki soldiery  against the allied garrison, which waft  able to maintain its supplies with  greatest difficulty. Tire commander  thereupon decided to withdraw hift  troops, numbering approximately S0,*������  000. The troops retired to Rumania  and Constantinople.  The situation in Rumania and Poland is far from reassuring, even wlUs*'  these additional troops to help feral  a cordon against the spread of Bolshevism.

The Jugo-Siav press bureau here  announces that the Belgrade government has rejected a demand of the  allies intended to obtain the co-operation of a large Jugo-Slav army against  the Hungarian communist government. The refusal, it is added, was  made on the ground that the allies  have not yet recognized Jugo-Slavia.

We  notice   by  the  papers  that  places  like  Nelsou  and   Trail  are  to  be  sub-stations    in   West    Kootenay  where  -headquar.ters    will    be   at  Grand   Forks.    Creston's  locatiou  so near the international boundary  justifies the demand for the stationing of a detachment in the Valley,  particularly when features of their  effort are to apprehend draft evaders and smugglers.   Regular patrol  work   through    outlying   districts  receives   special  attention, for   tho  enforcement of Dominion laws.  Lucky is the householder ..who  has a local rancher from whe m to  secure a regular supply of butter  these days. Local butter is a  scarce commodity in Creston stores  A very important  meeting���������for  the   parents   more     especially���������of  CreBton   and   adjacent   district   is  called for Monday night in Speers'  Hall, when the matter of effecting  some sort of organization to further  the social life of the ypuiig people  wiii  be  discussed.     Various  ideas  have   been   set forth   as   to   what  would be in the best interests of the  younger generatiou, and it is hoped  that a free and frank discussion of  the whole question   may  lead   to  something  being done to. improve  matters  all^along the  line.     The  popular cry is for an institution of  some sort that will keep the boys  and girls off the street and provide  them   with   wholesome   entertain*--  ment and instruction of a practical  sort���������-'-'both in   judicious quantities.  Just what form, and   under what  auspices, this should be undertaken  should not be a hard matter to decide, if the parents will tackle it in  reai earnest in partnership with the  younger  generatioi).    The  success  or failure of the undertaking, however, lies largely in the enthusiasm  and the creamery article is scarcer  still, at times. And, according to  the experts, no immediate relief.-is  iii sight for the shortage is world  wide. The normal consumption of  butter in Canada is live million  pounds a month, and yet in the  cold storage plants there is only  about a third of that quantity, or  sufficient for ten days. With the  advent of good pasture the local  supply will improve, but popular-  priced butter need not be expected  unless an embargo is placed on the  export of it, which is not at present  contemplated.  The aphorism about "the nearer  the church the further from God"  isn't the only seeming anomalous  maxim that readhV conies to irrniu  these days. According to the  Labor Gazette an equally trite remark would be "The nearer the  herds the dearer the beefsteak." In  the cost of living ramifications the  Gazette has recently been comparing prices on sirloin steaks in the  different provinces of the Dominion  and finds that this toothsome  article of diet is cheapest in Prince  Edward BIsland' and dearest in  British Columbia, while second  highest priced in Albrrta where the  sirloins grow in greatest abund  ance. The figures gathered show  that Nelson householders fare tho  worst in the matter of high prices  on steaks of this sort, paying 43c. a  pound, while at Fernie tho butcher  quotes it at 42o. At New Westminster you get two pounds and a  little suot to fry it with at 75������.  Tlio average price for Prince Edward Island*, is 26c. The average  for B.C. is 41.7 cents per pound.     a  the parents display toward the  project. If those directly concerned are indifferent certainly those  who have no direct "oersonal interest in such aa institution cannot be  expected to carry on, and much  less successfully. The Review  confidently anticipates some action  being taken. We not only need it  for the young folks, but organization of some similar sort for the  grown-ups would be equally beneficial Individually we are not too  bad socially: collectively we oper-  aee pretty much on the theory of  esteeming everybody as being of  good report but watchin&b'hem like  onal horse traders. ���������  *protesoi\  Since the outbreak of war Rossland  claims to have raised almost $77,000  for the Canadian Patriotic Fund.  1 6 SHNJOPeiS OF  i   >mn    R t\*r    A BB(r"f������tltn������BfllP,*"VIT  Pre-emption now oonflned to surveyed  lands only.

Lee of Cranbrook, chairman  of the Methodist District of East Kootenay, accompanied by Rev. J. F, Shaw  who is temporarily in charge of   Ores-  ton Methodist church,   were   visitors  here on Wednesday for the final   business meeting of the year of the   local  congregation, over which Mr. Lee presided. Despite the flu epidemic, which  closed the church   for   three   months  and deprived it of its   regular   pastor,  the reports all showed a very satisfactory year,   the   revenue   being   more  than sufficient to pay ail  cm-rent   expenses in full and leave a tidy balance.  A notable feature w.is  the giving   to  missions which were the largest in the  conregation's history, and   for   which  credit is due Mrs.   F.   K. Smith, who  supervised this work. The meeting attracted a   representative   attendauce  and an aggressive   program   for   this  year's   operations    was   outlined,   to  assist in which conference - will be appealed to send Creston   the   strongest  possible   pastor   for   the   next   three  ������-BB@������  Mr. Bailey, who has been staying  with Mr. and Mrs. Webster for the  past few months, left on Friday for  Wilkie.

This buy  increases his orchard holdings by  about 4G00 trees, quite a few of which  are expected to show a fair crop this  year.

Success Has Impressed Public With
Advantages of Method
For the last four years  the practical  development  of  electric     cooking
been   confined
by war necessities to public kitchens
and the canteens in munition    works
and  other  industrial     establishments.
This  field  is,  however,   so   wide,    so j
important,  and so  exacting    in  itself
that  the  success  of  cooking by  dec-1
tricity   for  large   numbers   of   people i
has impressed ibe public deeply with j
the advantages of this  method. During   this   period,   moreover,     the   domestic  electric cooker  has  not    been
altogether   neglected.
Improvements in design have been
introduced by British makers, and
tbc new types now being put on the
market represent a distinct advance
upon even the high pre-war standard. It should not be forgotten that
the application of electricity to cooking was more scientifically studied in
Great Britain than anywhere else. It
was in Great Britain that the experiments were made which proved that
the electric- oven, when properly designed and used, reduced the shrinkage of meat in roasting aud so rendered the process much more economical and much more hygienic. Similar  experiments, in   other    kinds     of
cooking  have established   the     claim

-j I Lay the Foundation of Good Health Now by Building Up Your
iai��r.xi  ar-ri  Strpn^thenine- Your Nerves
The good old fashion of taking a tonic in the springtime, like
most of the customs of our grandparents, is based    tipon    sound
common sense and good medicinal practice.    No matter how mild
the winter it is a trying time, even in the most favored climates,
for those who  are not in rugged physical health.     Many    men,
women and children go through the winter on    reserve    strength
th<-*y have stored up during thc sunny, summer months, and grow
incrcasmglv'-nalc as the spring days approach.       A tonic for the
blood and nerves at this time will do much   for   such   people, by
putting color in the cheeks and banishing that tired   feeling    that
worries thousands at this season of the year.
You can not bc energetic if your blood is thin and weak, or if
vour nerves are frayed or shattered. You carfhot compete with
other**- if you do not get refreshing sleep at night, or if you are
losing weight. You need a tonic at this time to add to your efficiency now, as well as to save you from suffering later on. ^And^in
all the realm of medicine there is no safer or better tonic than Dv.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. These pills make new rich,
red blood, which circulates through every portion of the body,
strengthening jaded nerves and run-down organs, and bringing a
[celing of new strength and energy to weak, easily tired, despondent men, women and children.
