Shaw  fail ini? to make his usual appearance.  The train from the east did not reach  here nntii almost 8 o'clock that evening.  Misses F. Lyne and Vivamie Moore  of Oreston were week-end visitors  with Miss F. Knott.  The ground around the school build-  in*? has recently been ploughed up and  part of it seeded to clover, while the  balance will he laid out in plcts and a  start made at school gardening this  year.  Mr. Storm who has just made the  purchase of a 20-acre tract here, has  taken a lease on the A. R. Swanson  ranch for two years and will take pos-  ession as soon as Mr. Swanson moves  out to Erickson again.  Engineer Ramsay, bridge superintendent Kilpatrick, and road superin-  tenpent Moore were here on Thursday and Friday last making the  final inspection of the new high   level  Ivi.iitrrxx xzitxv  -���������- "���������������3 '���������   There \yas a touch of frost here on  Monday morning, butjSfO.-far as can be  obser\*ed no damage ha*** resulted the  fruit blooms.  The location of the new high level  bridge is the chief topic of conversation here at present. From a reliable  source it is learned that the structure  is liable to go' in at a point about 100  feet higher up the river-than the old  one. Generally speaking it was hoped  the bridge would be put at a point  about 200 vavds further up stream  where a projecting rock furnishes an  ideal landing on the Erickson side and  also puts the bridge at a hiarher level  than the site the engineers have,seemingly, chosen. The people's site would  necessitate the building of but one  buttress for ao -a|*jf/i-o^v;"!*- wiriit* at tiie  engineers' site it will require the erection of two buttresses, though part of  the approach to* the wrecked bridge  can be utilized by the government if  the engineers' location is finally decided upon.  With the busy season opening up  there is a falling off in Bed Cross  Auxiliary attendance as is indicated  in the tea receipts. For April these  were $5.75 as compared with $8.05 for  the rnonlh of March.  , If the rush of   new   reside fits   with  families continues a little longer nothing short of a two-room school will accommodate the number of scholars entitled to schooling here.  ran ch  where this sort of power is handling a  washing machine, churn and grindstone at one and the same   operation.

Mr. and Mrs. Fox and children of  Macleod, Alta., spent a few days here  the latter part of the week, guests of  Mr. and Mrs. Fulmer. He came  through in his McLaughlin car, being  the first outside visitor to make the  trip in by a'uto tbis year. They shipped  tbe machine by freight to Nelson and  left for that city on Monday to continue their trip west.

They made  the trip as far as Kitchener by auto  where they got stalled, and made the  balance of the irip by train. The chief  was booming the 24th of May celebra  tion in that town and states it is going to be a real old time- affair, with  something worth while doing all day,  and will be too good to miss. Arrangements are under way to have a special  train from Creston for the affair.  The trustees are on the   lookout for  a new teacher for the primary   room.  Miss Ross, who has been in charge has  been forced to give up teaching owing  to ill health. During the flu   epidemic  last fall she   worked   as   a   volunteer  nurse at the emergency  hospital   and  at the Bunt home, only to fall a victim to the trouble later on, since when  she   has   never     enjoyed    her   usual  healt h.    It is hoped that a   prolonged  holiday will   ensure   an   effective   return to good health.

Many of these local merchants take  a gloomy view, and are somewhat inclined to blame lhc farmers for lack  of loyalty to those who, they claim,  have extended credit and carried them  over bad ycars, who buy their butter  and eggs, and are ever ready to render them small services, whereas the  city houses insist on cash in advance  and render no local service to them  whatever.  Thc future of the small town or  village is inseparable from the prosperity of their retail merchants. If  thc retail merchant goes, it will not  bo.   long   before   the   doctor,     lawyer,  thc discrepancy between city house  prices and those of the local merchant would largely disappear.  Thc iocal town or village should do  its part. It should identify itself  more with the lives cd tne iarmors  upon those whose trade its exists.

Bad biood is tiie cause  of headaches and backaches, lumbago  and rheuinatiMU, debility and indigestion, neuralgia, sciatica and other  nerve troubles. It is bad blood that  causes disfiguring skin diseases like  eczema and salt rheum vimoles and  eruptions. The severity of the trouble  indicates how impure the blood is, aud  it goes always from bad to worse unless steps are promptly taken to enrich and purify the. blood. There is  no use trying a different medicine for  each disease, lor they aii conic  through the one trouble���������bad blood.

In  fact  I  felt  so miserable that    life  held but little enjoyment.    I  was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  which  1 did, and the result was simply marvellous, and oan best be summed up by saj'hig that they made   me  feel like a new woman, and fully    restored my health.

Overtures  for tlie resumption of -relations have  not come thus far from either direction, but there are intimations from  Rome that overtures from Paris  would not bc unacceptable and would  receive  every attention.  The prevailing sentiment among  the delegates is against soliciting a  return of the Italian representatives  and it was at first believed that President Wilson shared this opinion.  Those nearest the' president, however, assert that if Italy is disposed  to relinquish- Fiume and accept the  compromise the president suggested,  he could doubtless, in the interest of  harmony, make such friendly suggestions as would permit the resumption  of negotiations by the Italians without any loss of dignity or self-esteem.  These personal susceptibilities are  felt to bc more of an obstacle at  present than thc territorial merits of  the case.  Rome. ��������� The Rome newspapers in  commenting on Premier Orlando's  speech before *"he "-"-arliarnen"* 3***."-^ p'l-'c  vote of confidence in his government  in that body, declare that now that  the Italian people and parliament  have voiced their solidarity with the  government, it rern"iins only for the  entente to revise its decision regarding the Adriatic. Thc view is taken  that President Wilson appealed to  the Italian people and uoav they have  given their answer and it is bound to  have its effect upon President Wilson's attitude.  The Corrierre dTlalia sees in thc  demonstration in the chamber of deputies an indication that it is the will  of Italy to help in bringing about  prompt peace and that she is ready  to make reasonable sacrifices to promote, it.

This is a  matter of conjecture, however, as  there is no precise information as"*-to  Germany's intentions.  Reports from Berlin are somewhat  contradictory concerning Germany's  purposes, as some reports indicate  that an early signing of thc treaty-  is probable, while others say that it  is doubtful whether the pact will be  signed at all. These reports, coming  from different sources, indicate a lack  of concerted attitude as to the treaty  and show there is disposition to  leave thc decision largely with the  German plenipotentiaries "who are  now at Versailles.

Looks Like Moving
Our old friend, the Kootenay
River ferry removal question,
seems now to be iii a fair way to
receive a, reasonably, quick solution.
The department appears quite convinced that a new scow should be
put in, t and have assured that
when that matter is finally decided upon the matter of removing the
conveyance to the proposed location at the Goat River bridge will
be very thoroughly gone into in all
This real, thorough investigation
is precisely what those favoring removal want. .While those opposing
the transfer are now arguing the
move should not be made due to
the fact that the banks are low at
the new sij*e, and that there are
swift currents and contrary whirlpools also, old timers recall the fact
that the first ferry that was ever
on the river was located at the
point opposite the Goat River
bridge���and that a service more
- satisfactory than now obtains, especially at high water periods, was
invariably had.
As to low banks those who certainly have navigated the river over long periods have no hesitation
in saying that the new   site   offers
else, should bring, out a   crowd   to
get a line   on   him   on   Saturday
night. At a time when the government feels that it is delivering  the
goods of tlie   right   sort,   and   in
good measure,   and   at   the   same
time there is a feeling to  the   con
trary effect, more especially amongst the returned soldiers, the gathering co-morrow night will, afford   a
splendid   opportunity   to   discover
what's what and it is to be   hoped
the turnout will be   in   proportion
to the importance oi the   occasion.

Enquiry of those who for various reasons should know the river should readily dispose of the low-
bank myth, while a little on-the-

easily fathom the equally-mythic-

free hand to make an impartial enquiry and The Review will gamble a last season's straw hat that
the move will be made.

Nothing is more exasperating

It's just a matter of fencing   tne
poultry in.    Do it now���while   the
stocks of netting are ample and the

Another little matter that should

cat owners. Possessors of pussies

to it that their purry creatures are
well fed for the next few weeks.
Just now the poultryman has
goodly flocks of ^ chickens in and
about his hennery and these prospective broilers make sumptuous

Despite reasonable care we know
of one party that last year lost not
less than a dozen and a half chicks
out of a hatch of thirty due to the
depradations of half-fed felines.
With firm and steadfast resolution
to fence the hens and feed the cats

line, accommodation does not seem
available, and then there is the expense of equipping and maintaining
such an effort���espeoialiy at the
present prices of cooking materials.
A fully qualified teacher in this
line, and for this work only, is a,
little too fancy for Creston as yet,
and one who. might com bh;e it with
other school effort would hardly do.
In this feature of training the
young idea the teacher would have
to measure up to the ideals and
standards of the mothers, and any
effort of the teacher to install new
fangled culinary ideas would probably get the trustees into all sorts
of domestic disputations.
The suggestion has been made
that if the dual purpose teacher
could be had possibly a few kitchen showers and an entertainment
or two would provide the wherewithal to equip the department,
and if the trustess, janitor and
married teaehers would agree to
buy the cooked product at somewhere near cost the financing
would not be difficult. But unless
the digestibility of the first few
weeks' output were guaranteed it
would be unfair to expect the
school staff or officials to thus become partners to the enterprise.
As the matter involves the expenditure of funds it will probably
come up at the annual meeting,
and The REVIEW hopes that it
will have very serious consideration on that occasion.

If a person were to say to the average young man of 25 years, "Young
fellow, do you know that if you save .
your nickels and dimes, it is within
your power to make 820,000,000?" he
would, be considered a little off. But
it has been done, and the late F. W.
Woolworth did it.
When Woolworth was a young man
he, at one time, earned only $8.50 a
week, kept, a wife and child and saved
$50, which added to $250 he borrowed,
bought his first stock of goods. In
time he started his 5, 10 and 15 cent
stores, and had about 1070 of them
when he died. He built the world's
greatest office building, putting $1-4,-
000,000 into it, and died reputedly
worth $7,000,000 or $8,000,000.
It is not p.;ss:b!e for every youth to
become a Woolworth, but if Canadian
young men and women save the 5 and
10 cent pieces and invest them in War
Saving Stamps and Thrift Stamps,
they will lay the foundation of their
own financial independence.

SL m \^~-\-  CANADA'S LINEN INDUSTRY  By'Mrs, Garland Foster  The needs of the war had the effect  of introducing new industries and reviving old ones. This-is particularly  noticeable in the linen industry. The  great demand for the best quality linen for aeroplane wings*, machine-gun  webbing, ambulance covers, etc., has  the effect of stimulating or rather reviving the almost expiring linen in-,  duslry in Canada.  The early settlers in Canada1 as naturally raised their own linen as the.V  raised their own wool for household  purposes.  In Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime proi'inbes every housewife of colonial days had her patch of flax from  which she produced table cloths, towels and other fine linens from year to  year.  As long as the old flax workers from  Europe or their direct descendants  were in Canada it was possible to run  'mills as well for the manufacture of  of linen and as early as 1784 flax fibre  was grown in Canada to   the   amount  ROBT.

Six years, before confederation Lower  Canada produced over a million yards  linen; Upper Canada 37,000. From this  till the war, what with a lack of skilled workers, lack of milling facilities,  and competition of European countries the amount of linen produced in  Canada had dwindled till just before  the war only a few thousand cwt. of  fibre for export was produced.  At that time two-thirds of the  world's flax supply for linen came  from Russia, the remainder from Ireland, Prance, Belgium and Germany.  The effect of the war was to centralize linen production in Ireland, while  the increased demand reduced the accumulated supply. Experiments with  other . materials conclusively prove  there is no substitute for linen, suitable to use for the arts or household  purposes.  In 19.15 the price of flax at Belfast  was $700.00 a ton, a price that made  profitable the selling of Canadian flax  straw in bales for manufacture in  Irish mills. The high price is likely to  obtain for some time as tht situation  is not unlike that of the food products  thc government having commandercd  the flax crop in Ireland during the  war has guaranteed the same price after the armistice. All this has had the  effect of not only stimulating but  .making impel ative increased production of flax and fibre. No matter what  tin* conditions of international trade,  the source of tho European supplv is  likely to be cut off until such tiiiies as  settled conditions are once more determined.  In 1017 a commission of Irish linen  manufacturers visited Canada with a  view to determining whether Canadian flux would be suitable for the  manufacture of the finer linen. Their  reports was to the effect that flax  grown in eastern provinces and in  western B.C. would be suitable for  finest quality linen.

Every  stage except scutching can be performed on the farm, and every stage  through which the fibre passes reduce-  es the freight and increases the value  of the product. Primitive methods are  still largely employed in preparation  of flax for fibre. In fact the primitive  method has the advantage over machine method in the selection and  grading of the fibre. Whether hand  or machine methods are employed the  processes are in effect the same.  The object of retting is to produce  certain chemical changes in the stem  of the flax so that the fibres surrounding it may be separated from the  woody stem or shove. Two methods  are employed for this purpose. In dew  retting, which depends upon weather  conditions for its success, the flax is  laid in layeas on a grass plot and subjected to the action of the moisture in.  the air. In water retting which is considered to produce more uniform fibre  the process is hurried by soaking in  water, either in tanks or ponds constructed for the purpose, the bundles  being weighted to prevent them coming to the top during the process of  fermentation.  To determine length of time flax  should remain under water requ'res  carefui judgement as the process takes  from five to twelve days to complete.  Small quantities of flax may be; treat-  ee in rain water but the larger the  quantity of water the lighter the color of the Sax. The rain water has tbe  advantage of being free from Iron, an  essential in flax retting. It is here  B.C, recommends itself as suitable  point for flax manufacture as the wat-  , er being largely snow water is conspicuously free from iron. As the proper  temperature of water retting must be  about 72 degrees F,   outdoor  retting  Things arc imp-raving at Nelson. In  1918 the Y.M.C.A. lost a matter of  $1200. This year the deficit will not  be more than $300 it is hoped.  Nelson enthusiasts will likely form a  golf club. They have designs on a 22-  acre site, and will form a $30,000 corn-  pan f to swing theproposition.-  Aithough Greenwood is one of the  quietest towns in all B.C. at the present time, the dealer there reports selling two Chevrolet cars last week.  New Denver has subscribed $270 and  this will be spent in buying some suitable gift for each of the men who  went to the war from that section.

Following-retting, the crop must be  drained and dried, for this purpose being spread out on the ground or laid  against a support���������the latter method  being called gating.  Breaking is preparatory to scutching which requires experienced workmen. In **braking"the flax is passed between gx-ooved rollers which break up  the woody portion from which the  fibre can be readily separated during  the process of scutching.  The machinery for scutching is by  no means complicated, though varying in mills in different countries. It  has the effect of beating out the fibres  when the coarse fibre or tow waste  may be removed.  Water power or electric motors  may be used to drive these machines.  Scutching completes the fibre process,  when the product is ready to be spun  into thread and woven into linen.  a house fit to live in that is not occupied at Revelstoke, and still the demand continues for rentable residences.  Engineer Biker estimates the ranchers at Grand Forks are losing at least  $70 per acre per annum though not  having an irrigation system in that  section.

To Germany
As a prelude to her attack on civilization, Germany did two things.' For
forty ycars she built up'a vast military machine at home, and for forty
years, through avcII planned and skillfully executed propaganda throughout the world, she taught the gospel
of her superior efficiency. This latter
to such an extent and so successfully

though  slangy  expression,     she    had
thc -world -'buffaloed."
This is not to say Germany was
not cfllcicnt, not superlatively organized, for she was. Not only -was the
theory of efficiency talked on every
occasion, but it was demonstrated in
her manufactured products and the
thoroughness of her immense export
trade. If a German manufacturer
couiu. not cGinpc-LC in any lorcign
port with any article made elsewhere,
his government promptly came to his

or some other form -of subsidv. The
natural result of all this was to create
and foster a world-wide conviction
that Germany was a supcrnatioii, head
and shoulders above all others, and
therefore impregnable. To resist
Germany when she set out to conquer was to invite and insure disaster. In short, the expectation was to
destroy in advance a world morale,
and thus reduce successful conquest
to its simplest terms.
This system was not without its results and effect. The German at
home, and with few exceptions
abroad, was absolutely grounded in
the conviction that the fatherland
was invincible. We can each recall
those Germans in. this country, including those who had been natural-
feed here for many years, and who
eventually took sides with thc United
States against Germany, who in 1914,
1915 and 191(5 were both indignant
and angry at any suggestion of German failure, or of responsibility for
starting lhc  war.
It  is   quite  true   that,  in  the     early
days  of  the struggle, victory perched
ou   Germ an  banners, and  the  tide  of
battle  flowed  one  way.     'J*his  appai*-,

years to accomplish, and in some re-
[spects .had gone even better.! -With
thc advent of the United States came
a tremendous impulse of inventive accomplishment which in scarcely more
than a year had conceived, and made
in vast quantities, weapons in comparison with which the .German type
was as a child's toy.
Many of these things arc still a secret in thc archives of our war college;
their details or even their existence
have not and should, not be made
public; but it is permissible to mention one, a gas shell, the use of
which will absolutely and almost instantly annihilate sny army into
whose ranks it is hurled.
Had the..,, armistice been delayed
only ti few days, there would not have
been left, alive a single soldier in all
the Metz fortifications. A few planes
hovering so far above its guns as to
be mere specks in thc sky; a few gas
bombs dropped among the forts and
a "few moments later, not a living soul
left to -challenge or surrender. Aud
this shell, thc result ot only a few
months' effort, makes the Genuai/
preparation of forty years as the snail
is to a hare.
These words  arc  not  written    for
the purpose of any self-laudation   of
what thc allies accomplished   chiefly
in thirty-six months, although deserved.    History will, emphasize this fact
far beyond what the most of us realize today.    Thc essential thing   we
should grasp  is, not  to permit   ourselves to accept in future as we have
in thc past, without question, what is
declared to    us    by    Germany,     for
there is every reason to believe that
a  country  which  found  its  deceptive
propaganda so profitable    in      years
gone by is not going to abandon its
formula when wc  once more     settle
down to peace conditions.    Wc  may,
with  equal advantage,    each  one  for
himself,  question  the    integrity    and
motive of    many    statements    which
arc made with  so    much    assurance,
aud which wc meekly accept without
any other proof and authority     than
that of the speaker's word.    If what
wc are urged  to  believe  is  so, it    is
capable of proof; if the evidence docs
not support the statement, we simply
delude ourselves.
Docs anyone imagine that, if the
German people who were alive on
that fateful August day, 191-1, could
have known what is known now, thcy
would have gone into  the war?

Only the smaller ships will be. left

It is possible some confiscated ships

our enlightened communities will insist on a niiuimum of cleanliness aud
decent living conditions. All children should have lhc same chance, and
whatever i.s necessary to secure this
should be thc concern of. all.
A large proportion of thc waking
hours of most growing*, children is
spent outside the home, where thcy
arc exposed to moral as well as physical contamination. It is manifestly
in the iuterest of all thc children and
homes that parents should take an
intelligent interest, in other children
than their own, and by united action,
raise thc standard of the whole physical and moral environment of childhood. Much could be done, if existing agencies were better supported.
There is need for very much more
.SA-inpathetio co-operation between
parents and thc public school. The
..same is undoubtedly true, of the
Sun da j* school. This institution is today the most effective one wc. have,
making for thc moral uplift of childhood, but with a more sympathetic
backing its possibilities for increased
efficiency along this line are almost
limitless. The public support of the
health authorities would also make
for the elimination of epidemics, pure
milk and water supply, and sanitation.     And   when   communities   learn
