The fine weather that prevailed the  greater part of the week is bringing  trees along ih great shape. It would  look as if the Kelsey ranch would be  the early strawberry shipper again  this year. Some of the plants there  were in bloom early last week.  Yery genuine sympathy goes out to  Mr. and Mrs. Albert   Stewart   in   tbe  loss of their infant daughtecpn Thursday last.

Mr. and Mrs. Hodge and part of the  family arrived from Macleod, Alta.,  on Friday, and are now getting settled  on the John Huscroft ranch, which  they have on a year's lease.

Mr. Keen wa^ feeling particularly  cheerful. So far as the Kaslo consfcit-  utency is concerned the powers that be  provided adequately for most of its  requirements. As to Kootenay Flats  Reclamation, Mr. Kean informed .The  Review that we ought to be hearing  something any day now. The recommendations in this connection by the  the ptovincial government to the federal authorities was foi-warued Ottawa early in April, and a few days after its despatch Hon W. Sloan, minister of mines, and Hon J. D. MacLean,  provincial secretary, left for Ottawa,  and Reclamation was one of the topics they were deputep to discuss with  the responsible minister at Ottawa.  The visitor assured that every provision had been made for the completion of the Arrow Creek irrigation survey. Engineer Biker will have a couple of assistants this season, and as  soon as they finish : up a bit of the  same sort of work at Grand Forks the  force will be down here to complete  all the work on the local survey, and  a report as to cost, etc., of the svstem  will be submitted without delay.

Residents across the Kootenay River are at present compelled* to make  the trip to town from ferry on foot.  The ferry cable is broken and so far a  new one to replace it has not arrived.  The break occurred last Friday, and  the mishap comes at a bad time, as  with the water rising on the flats the  West Creston people are naturally  anxious to get home sufficient supplies  to last until travelling is again available after the floods.  ** Creston Great War Veterans had a  largely attended meeting on Saturday, when permanent organization  was effected, and the following officers  chosen for the ensuing term: President, J.

With jam factories offering that price  for berries on the vine it would look  as if berry prices for 1919 would at  least, equal those of last year.  TENDERS WANTED  Alta Bliss rendered  a splendid Easter  programme at the I.O.O.F. Hall, Port-  hill, on April 20th.

The large audience that  gathered to  hear what the iittie folks had to tell���������  in their readings and songs���������about the  resurrection of Christ speaks for itself  how  highly Porthiil appreciated the  Easter service.

As a preliminary to a better understanding, it is essential ihat the people of all provinces shall be placed  on a plane of perfect equality, and  that cannot be until thc East agrees  to thc transfer of their natural resources to the Western provinces.  Until that is done confederation is  lop-sided and still incomplete. There  can be no real confederation except  where all the confederated units  stand in equality the one to the other. So long as any one is forced into  a position of inferiority, there will be  discontent and thc elements of disunion.  In matters of fiscal and economic  policy, a spirit of compromise must  prevail where sectional interests come  into conflict. Neither East nor West  must seek, nor expect, to impose its  views and will wholly and absolutely  on the other. In other words, the  manufacturing East should not insist  on denying to the agrarian We*,t a  larger freedom of trade, wider i-,ar-"  kets, and the development of Wtstern outlets in connection **vitii the  disposal of the preducts of the West.  To do so is selfish, a dog in the  manger policy, because such policies,  while highly beneficial to the West,  do not do injury to thc manufacturing industries of jhe East. On the  other hand, given freedom in the  marketing of its own products, the  West must not insist on policies  which would place in jeopardy the  continuance and prosperity of Eastern industry.  The development and prosperity of  one section of the Dominion has a  direct and beneficial effect on the  other section. While both East and  West might get along without thc  other; both will benefit more largely  by the development and prosperity of  the other. - Therefore, each should do  what lies in its power to encourage  aisd assist the other, and both must  deny themselves something for the  benefit of the other; that is, there  must be mutual sacrifice and co-operation for the common good of all.

Hayes, Editor and Owner*  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, MAY   2  A Timely Suggestion  The following, from one of our  numerous Erickson subscribers, we  pass along for what it is worth.  And we use that expression advisedly���������and for reasons which shall  appear presently. Says our cor-  responent:  Why not print a strong letter in The Review re a clean  up and painting up day in and  around Creston. It certainly  does look bad around back  premises and outbuildings:  such rubbish heaps. I don't  see the sense of advertising  Creston in the hope of getting'  people to locate here when the  town looks so un cared for and  neglected generally. I know  that strangers have little else  to  do   here   but view the un  sightly back premites, as there  is no moving picture, show,  even, in which to pass the time  between trains, or after a person's shopping is done. Why  not make use of the Wednesday afternoons and thus put  that otherwise useless holiday  to some good use. Cleanliness  is next to godliness.  With the present influx of possible new residents too much attention cannot be paid to the matter of  keeping the town in its best bib  and tucker..

A Right but Poor Start  Now, as to why we pass this  tidy-up suggestion on without elaboration, be it said that a couple of  weeks ago we started a campaign  on behalf of a cemetery clean up,  more especially by the ladies, and  as a result, of our effort a some sized  delegation of them made their appearance at the graveyard on"*Wed-  nesday of last week fully prepared  to do their bit but no one was  about to supply the needed working  sort  on any sized scale.    And the  best the men in charge say is that  if   they had  ever  dreamed of   the  ladies coming they certainlgr would  have   had  all   things  ready.    But  all's well that ends weii.    A goodly  number of both the men and women have now realized their obligation in   keeping in good order the  precincts of those departed this life  in faith   and fear, and if they will  co-operate   and    co-ordinate   their  effort another season���������and throughout  the  year���������the local cemetery  will shortly become one of the few  beauty spots of the town.  need be no emphasis as to "the  lower the higher"���������as to cut and  cost.  at  Now for Even Better Work  ran and Shorts  l  I     The supply of Bran and Shorts is dependent upon the  *\ *.m^ msr. fx mr���������mm       4*. pvuj-*4w  >*J s**^       m p*^ m~i    I ***% pm .������  "sX'OOF'D 'xiVSaXss i'i j?

About three  years ago the Board of Trade tried  out  its  first  box   social, and   notwithstanding considerable boosting  and a dance-as a special attraction  the total financial intake was certainly   not  more   than   $65.    This  year, with whist   as   an added attraction,   but   certainly   no   more  people in the Valley to look to for  boxes,   a   similar   affair   recorded  gross intake of just under $275.00  which figures do not include another $50   corralled via the raffle of a  pair of geese.    While, undoubtedly,  added   prosperity   helped   some  in  making the affair a success, the increased   casn   reserve was  not the  biggest  factor  in   producing  such  excellent  results.    In   three  years  the Board of Trade  has not  only  increased   both   the   quantity   and  quality   of  its  membership, but it  has   accomplished   things that the  rank   and   tile  of  our citizens  all  quite thoroughly appreciate.

With the added  funds secured at the latest social  and backed up with the confidence  and appreciation such a large and  liberal attendance indicates, the  board can tackle future operations  with renewed vigor and with that  satisfaction that always attends  any effort that has the substantial  backing of the community. As the  Easter Monday affair was to enlarge the publicity fund it will reassure all to know that it will be  disbursed by a committee made up  of Messrs. Bennett, Henderson and  Hayes. If there isn't throe of a  kind that, would beat any two pair  at getting the maximum of benefit  at. the minimum of expenditure  then this i.sn't the garden of the  Kootenays.  Kaslo  is another town that had  Easter Monday night dcings���������also  for hospital benefit���������where "bright  the  lights  shone  o'e"** fair women  and  brave  men," as   Shakespeare  has  it���������and   nothing   personal intended as to the men being accounted "brave" or the ladies ''fair" for  other than genuinely native attainment  or endowment.    The Kootenaian tells us that the ''hop" was a  great  success,   and  doubtless  uses  that word with feeling, as it is aiso  recorded    that    about    75   couple  "trod the light fancastic."    While  Bro. Power makes no referenee to  the monetary feature of any of the  costumes,   still   that aspect  of the  event was in   a degree noteworthy  for  the  Kootenaian   cannot  resist  the observation that a touch of the  before the war esprit de corps was  noted-in    the   sprinkling  of  claw  hs-nune!' coR-t-? ft-nd ������_������pen fnoe vests  among the leading citizens, and the  show  of  immaculate   biled   shirts  that adorned the manly .bosoms of  the   plebeian   throng.       With    the  proceeds of tiie advertising of two  tax sales even tne Kootenaian editor  was there minus his habitual dutch  laundered   neckwear  and  "dicky,"  and   was  at  once an   outstanding  figure, if  not   the  foremost of the  native  sons in attendance.    There  wasn't  a   celluloid   collar   in   the  crowd, and if anyone eat with his  knife at suppertime none were uncharitable enough to remark upon  it   at   the   time.

The rice is stored for a time in bins  carefully protected from rain or moisture. The. ���������"elevator*' process, in this  case, conies before the threshing, for  the gathering of the rice is usually  thc work ot thc men while the rest  of thc process devolves upon the  squaw.  The "threshing" is perhaps the  most curious process of all. A slow  fire is built of parallel logs, ou both  sides of which large pans���������tin "wash  in fact���������are placed upon thc  coals.     In   each  of  these   a   hail*  Wild Rice Gathered    by    Indians   of  Winnipeg River  In the autumn of 1812, four or five  men of thc first  band of Selkirk set-  tiers sowed with winter wheat a little  plot  of land in  what  is  now     Point  Douglas,  in   thc  city     of    Winnipeg.  The   story  of  grain  growing  in     ihe  west from  that humble effort���������a failure, by thc way���������to the triumphs of  Ked   Fife,  Marquis    and    Red Bobs,  would bc as fascinating a talc of agricultural development as it would be  possible to find; but the wheat of the  Red River settlement was    not    the  first cereal food harvested by man in  the great west.  Nowhere in tlie temperate zone,  perhaps had the hand of nature provided more bounteously a supply of  staple food for tlie- wants of man.  Upon the plains were innumerable  herds of buffalo; old Sheriff Ross in  that cla-"-"ic of pioneer days "Thc Red  ku'er .Settlement," describes the  slaughter of 2,500 of them in a single  hum. Tire "titameg" or whiteiish  -v,armed in the waters of the Red  river and Lake Winnipeg. No fewer  than  1-1,tiUO  whiteiish were  taken     by  j boilers  j hot  bushel or less of the unthreshed rice  is stirred incessantly by squaws seated before the fire "Indian fashion."  The steam rises in little clouds, and  the encampment is frequently filled  with thc aroma of the fragrant half-  parched rice. When quite dry aud  just beginning to "brown" the grain  is removed from thc pans for the  third stage of the process.  This consists of "threshing" aud  winnowing by a very curious method.  A cavity in the ground, perhaps 18  inches deep and slightly less in diameter, is lined with hard clay, which  becomes iu process of use almost as  hard as pottery. The edge of the  hole is neatly lined with woven grass  in order to prevent sand or earth  from falling in. A peck or so of the  browned rice is placed in the cavity,  and one of thc men���������donning, it is to  be hoped, a pair of clean moccasins  for the purpose���������treads out the rice  while, the squaws winnow the chaff  away with fans of birch bark.  .ii'-.  settler-,  upon   the retreat  to Jack  river yfti-r   th<-  disastrous    a ft ray      of  veil  i >���������  i:  Long Drinking of   Mild   Intoxicants  Will Saturate a Man  This condition is not brought about  in a vast majority of cases by the  use of whiskey. "Saturation" is generally a matter of time. Drinkers of  whiskey, who drink freely during  short periods, are frequently found  not to be saturated. Experts are of  thc opinion that long drinking of  mild intoxicants will saturate a man  though he docs not consume a large  quantity of alcohol at any one time.  This feature of the problem seems  to have escaped thc attention of advocates of ihe use of light wine and  beer. It ought to bc considered carefully by those men at Ottawa, the  provincial capitals and elsewhere, who  urge that wine and beer be not included in a prohibitory law. Many  writers in the newspapers, while  pretending to stand for temperance,  argue in favor of the milder drinks.  One from southern California, where  thc light wine theory is held so insistently, takes issue with the idea  that light wines are harmeless, and  expresses himself as follows: "Surely  you must have observed what alcohol  does to the moral and ethical nature  of man; how it kills out all decent  principle and decent thought. If you  haven't so observed, live critically iu  a booze community like Napa or Sonoma county, in California, where each  generation shows the cumulative effect of alcohol in the matter of human  degeneration."  Where mild intoxicants abound,  saturation is easy. "Used freely its  effects cannot be hidden for many  years. In some families a single generation will -reveal these. In every  light wine community these effects  will be observed. France and Italy  have been blighted and cursed by  them. And so it is with beer in Germany. German scientists of high  repute do not deny this. Thc German  character has been affected by beer.  The atrocities of the great war have  been attributed in large measure to  alcoholic saturation through beer  drinking.  Alcohol is the poison that causes  drunkenness and thc lightest wines  and beers contain enough alcohol to  make them dangerous.���������J. H. Hazle-  wood, Department of  Social  Service.

Thc  growth of the industry in this manlier has no doubt been assisted by thc  encouragement of the government iu  bringing about a practical systcm of  grading the wool. The enormous pro-  tits which farmers are making with  sheep has also been an incentive to  this industry.  The. following experience as related  hy a Saskatchewan farmer i.s by    no  Stride Toward Early Peace Has Been  Taken  New York. ��������� The Associated Press  issued the following summary of the  international situation:  A sharp forward stride toward an  early peace has been taken. The council, of four in Paris has formally invited Germany lo. send delegates to  Versailles April 25, there to hear the  verdict of the entente allies and associated powers and thc sentence thcy  have imposed upon her for having set  thc world aflame.  Thc general opinion in Paris seems  to be that Germany may endeavor to  haggle over the terms and try to secure a diminution in their severity,  but that within a relatively short  time thc delegates will bow to the inevitable and sign the compact. Advices from London are to the effect  that the terms of thc peace treaty will  uot bc made public until thcy have  been  delivered to Gcrmanv,  lowing statement:  "I could not carry on a cattle business without Shorthorns. Not saying  anything deprecatory of other breeds,  the Shorthorn suits our purpose, and  we are running a herd on the open  range. Thcy make us 200 pounds!  more beef than would be possible  with other cattle." He also states  that what thc Avestcrn cattle industry  needs is bigger cattle, which insures  more beef to thc animal, there being  no difference between fixed charges on  a. 1000-lb. steer and a 1200-lb. steer.  Mr. Cross uses both Shorthorn and  Hereford blood, claiming that he gets  the best results from cattle which  carry about two-thirds Shorthorn and  one-third Hereford blood.  B.  J.  Erwin, Douglas,  Wyo.,  marketed his  two   year    old   range-bred'  I Omaha, about 200 lbs. more than the  average steers not carrying Shorthorn  blood.  Wherever the Shorthorn goes we  can trace ils influence for good. Bigs  growthy, sappy stccrs are characteristic results from using Shorthosa  bulls on the range, as elsewhere.
