Array 1125 Acres Have  100,933 Trees  1 per cent, -was  The very heayy show of bloom on  the Valley appie tree--, and the healthy  way the earlier varieties* of tree fruits  are "setting" this season, leads to considerable speculation as to how extensive the final harvest will be.  While onr old friend, the June drop,  has still to be reckoned vyith, along  with some other ' factors that invariably expedite thinning operations,  unless these unfavorable elements are  yery much to the fore 1919 has all the  earmarks right now of giving the Valley the half-million dollar crop that  some of the optimists predict.  To come to some intelligent conclusion in the matter the fruit tree census  'taken by Jos. Heath in the summer of  1016 should be of considerable assistance. At that time Mr. Heath found  the Valley had 90,307 apple trees of  numerous varieties, as well as 10,626  trees.of other kinds of fruit.  On Mr. Heath's retrrns to the horti.  cultural department we find that 1919  sees *54 per cent, of those trees eight  years old or under. 45 per cent, be-  ���������tween eight and thirteen years, and  one per cent, oyer thirteen.  In 1918 the apple trees gave an average yield of a little better than two-  thirds of a bos per tree on a showing,  of bloom that certainly did not look a6  favorable as this year's blossom. With  a.other year added t'o the life of all of  them, and a considerable area of new  o chard that will cdme into bearing  this year for the first time, one does  hot need to be an optimist toforsee an  apple crop of at least 100,000 boxes,  given normal conditions throughout  the season. The Heath report, which  has been -supplied the Creston Board  of Trade its corittensed forni by the"  provincial department of agriculture,  is as follows":  "Mr. Heath recorded 1*86 fruit growers in his survey of the Creston District, which includes Wynndel. Erickson, Canyon City and Sirdar. The  table below gives the number of the  different kinds of fruit trees in the district, as well as the number of a great  many of the varieties of apples and  percentage of each in the district:  Total    Per cent.  Trees of total  Wagner. 29.803 29.6  Wealthy 12,340 13.0  Mcintosh Red  9,452 ..    10.4  Jonathan  7,333 8.1  Northern Spy  5,676 6.3  Delicious  4,373 4.8  Spitzenberg  3.502 3.9  Rome Beauty  3,150 3.4  Ontario  1,801 2.0  King  1,743 1.9  Cox Orange  1,600 1.8  Grimes Golden  1,600 1.8  Graveustoin  1,383 1.6  Winesap     905  Winter Banana ..    082  Baldwin    ..:."   028  Duchess .v.**     055  [the ages 5 and 10.  over 10 years old."  What with the removal of "fillers,"  thinning out of poor varieties, and the  "working over" of many hundreds of  trees in the aggregate, these figures  are not "now correct as to varieties,  nor are there 90,307 trees to crop from,  neither will the new plantings of the  last five years make good the deficit in  this respect, as very little nursery  stock of the tree sort has been put in  tlie ground since 1914. "This year  shows considerable improvement in  this respect, the import of trees being  the heaviest for several seasons back.  However, until the price of pov,'der  takes a considerable tumble new  orchard areas of any extent can hardly  be looked for.  Local and jrersont  1   p^WI. -  MiiiWst. Siding  Rev. J.

Hayes wa;s the Creston board  of trade representative at the banquet  at Nelson to C.PiR. .President-Beatty  on Saturday night, being one of the  speakers of the evening���������to the toast  to Tho Press. The affair attracted a  large and representative attendance,  about 150 sitting down to the spread,  which was under Associated Board's  of Trade auspices.,  W. Barraclough of Fernie was a  week-end guest with his parents here,  returning on Monday.  Guy Constable is spending a few  days this week on his annual fishing  trip at points along Kootenay Lake.  After making' some improvements  in the way of enlarging the house j brook earl  W. H. Farrell On Monday moved his  family from Crestod and will spend  the next few months . on the Andy  Miller ranch.  Pte. Frank Simister arrived home  on Monday, having spent a couple of  days with his sister at Sirdar enroiate.  He has a couple of years overseas service to his cc-edit, but looks and feels  none the worse for the rather busy  few months he put in beating Fritz.  He will probably return to the prairie  after a holiday here with his parents,  Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Simister.  C. O. Rodgers and R. S. Bevan were  at Cronbrook on Friday night for a  conference of East Kootenay board of  trade representatives called for the  purpose of having a preliminary discussion of matters that effect this part  of B.C. and formulatigg a policy to  lay before a boards of trade convention whieh will likely be held at Cran-  bought a ten-acre tract here arrived  with his family and effects the latter  part of the week, and is -occupying a  cabin that was on the premises.  Word as to the government's buy of  8000 acres of the Company's land is expected ai*.y day now, with all convinced that the purchase is a good one.  With development work under way  on it, and construction started on the  new bridge Canyon City will be the  livliest point in the Valley.  The examination results of the 1919  session of the B.C. University at Vancouver, whieh appeared a few days  ago, show Miss May McLean, who had  charge of the Canyon City school a  couple of years ago passing well up in  Hnaltests in the second year in arts.  She topped the class in psychology,  and was well quite prominent in history, logic, Latin and English * litera-  ure. We understand Miss McLean has  taken a school on the prairie for the  summer, and will return to the university in the fall.  ���������Br* a  SLrect  *  Soldiers Memoria  J.    t*l   V UUCr  Things were exciting for a time at  Kootenay River ferry on Friday  morning last. While making the trip  across the ferry became stalled due to  some complications in the overhead  cable, and in order to land Angus  Curry, who was aboard with a team,  as well as the ferryman, the cable had  to be cut to allow the scow to drift  ashore to get the horses: off. It was afterwards  towed hack to its old moor-  ..   - "V.*-.  ings by team, and   resumed   business  as usual.  Mr.  *..���������.

The latest buyer ot a motor car is  Campbell Blair, who last woek purchased S. A. Speers' Ford and is already becoming quite expert in handling it.

Mrs. Sam Scott and children got  away on Saturday on a trip to Eng  land, on a visit to the old home and  her husband, who is in poor health in  a British military hospifal. She will  be away about three months, and all  are hoping she and Sam will be back  eyen sooner, with the latter feeling  his old-time self.  Field tom.-itoes are- reported in blossom on the Kelsey ranch. This place  also reports strawberries well formed  and expects to be shipping these by  the middle of June.  Shipments of tomatoes may show a  slight falling off at Erickson this season due to the fact that the Staples  brothers haye dissolved the partnership that has existed since they came  into the Valley. They haye been  heavy shippers of tomatoes and other  truck. It is not tho intention of either  partner to farm extensiyely this year.  As forecasted some weeks ago the  Creston Valley memorial to those  fallen in the great war will take the  form of a monument, which will be  erected on a suitable site at Creston.  This was the decision of the citizens  meeting in Mercantile Hall on Wednesday night, which was presided over by R. B. Staples, chairman of the  canvassing and plebiscite organization  com xs it-tee.  J.   W.   Hamilton,    the  committee  treasurei*,   submitted    the    financial  statement  showing how  those  subscribing had voted.   According to the  canvassers returns * 235  people   were  approachen, and of these 153 expressed  a preference  for a monument, 65 preferred a^butlding, and 17 were neutral  in the matter. In the matter of money  guaranteed the statement showed the  monument faction guaranteeing $1124  while  the    guaranteeing    from   the  building forces footed   up to $538.    In  connection with the giving a number-  made   their  donation conditional on  either a monument, or  *s 'building* being erected, and   if those  committed  themselves   so   rigidly to  a   building  and nothing else  decide to   stick   to  their pledge there will be a little oyer  $1500 wherewith to procead   with the  work, though   this  is sure to be augmented bv subscriptions   from a cum-  ~m~*  ber who declined to commit   themsel  ves to any amount at all uutii the de-  oisiors vjn.s f;  S.S ii:iiCil<ru &3 ti*J   Hit-it W'Utit  litlii  memorial is to be.  Having adopted the financial   statement, -passed a vote  of  thanks to the  canvassing committee, adopted a formal motion to proceed with the erection of the monument,   and re-elected  Mt*,. Hamilton the permaoeht treasurer, the meeting"Was'adjourned, and ������*"  organized under  Mr.* Staples'  chair-/  man ship to select a  committee to get  on with the erection of the memorial.  A committea of sis was  favored   and  the following   were   selected:   Robt.  Stark, C. G. Bennett, A.   R. Swanson,  W.   H.   Crawford Lieut. R. Sinclair-  Smith and J. W. Hamilton.  In view of  the   scanty  attendance  the two meetings   haye  attracted  it  was decided   to   giye   the   half-dozen  gentlemen named full power to  select  the design of the monument.,   the stle  and arrange all other details and haye  the work   completed at   the   earliest  possible  date.   However the   gentlemen are very anxious to   receiye suggestions from   nil   and - sundry as to  what would bc appropriate both as to  design and location for the monumental pillar, and it is hoped all so inclined  will pass along their ideas at tho earliest possible moment.  Until the style of monument is  finally decided upon, and the cost of  amiie complete is available the matter  of a location for it would be premature, but judging by the cost o{* a similar undertakings elsewhere it would  look as if some considerable added revenue will be needed if a site for the  monument is to be put-chased nnd  put in shape to provide an esthetic-  setting for the memorial, including  room for the field guns the bo*>r<! of  trade is pressing the War Trophies  The country fair feature   of   Christ j iioard at,   Ottawa   t-o   send   here   for  Made $110 at Fair  Church Ladies' Guild entertainment  on May 24th was a decided success,  there being a large turnout of buyers  all afternoon at the Parish Hall, nnd  with the exception of the tail end of a  geiK-rons-  supply   of   rhubarb   and   a  memorial decorative purposes.

Farm Life in Canada

j a market for nil hc can produce.   The

worry is rather to get sufficient help
to enable him to produce all that hc
would like to produce.
While uo man can live unto himself
alone, the fanner is more independent
of his fcllowmcn than any other class.
Hc is more dependent on his own effort's than others, and can regulate the
operations of his business to suit his
needs aud circumstances better than
can the city business man or city
It would be foolish to attempt to
minimize-the difficulties with which
the farmer has to contend, or to discount the problems he has to solve,
but thc fact remains that, admitting
and recognizing these, hc is still able
to live a happier and more independent life than is the city toiler. He is
to a far greater extent master of his
own life and destinies.
And  after  all,  to  feel  independent,
to know that the measure of your success, in  life  is -largely    in  your  own
hands, that you are y-our own boss, is
one of the supreme  satisfactions     in
life.    The boy or youth on thc farm
who sometimes feels" that farm work
is drudgery, that he is leading a narrow existence, and who is tempted by
the  lure  of  the   city  with  its  bright
lights, its crowds, and surface gaiety,
would do well to reflect that on the
farm he is his own  master, while in
thc city lie would become someone's
servant.    On  the farm he is a man;
in the city he would be but one of the
crowd.    In tiie city the bright lights,
the laughter, the passing amusements,
are all on the surface, and beneath and
back of them there is much loneliness
and heartache and far more monotony
and drudgery than on the farm.    For
every success in thc city of which thc
world  hears,    there  are  one hundred
failures of which no notice is taken.

The whole world is in a state of
Unrest, and society is being shaken lo
Its very foundations. Conditions are
changing, and uncertainty exists in almost every walk of life. Turmoil and
strife are everywhere in evidence
throughout industry,' our political institutions are undergoing the greatest
strain yet placed upon them, in the
world of finance there is doubt and
anxiety, and throughout the whole social fabric there���is much questioning
and groping as to what is best to be
This discontent and unrest is, however, much more apparent in large
centres of population all over the
world, in the cities and large towns,
than it is in thc rural communities.
While there is, of course, some doubt
and uncertainly as to the general effect which these disturbed world conditions may have on the profits of
agriculture, there is peace and contentment on thc farms of Canada in
comparison to the state of feeling in
the cities and towu-s.

It Is Rooted in thc Blood and Must
Be Treated Through the
The pain of rheumatism is something that yotrcannot rub out. Every
sufferer from rheumatism has been
advised io rub this liniment or that
on the affected part, but after all the
rubbing lhc pain remained. Rubbing
did not cure it and can't cure it.
Thin blood and    rheumatism come
together    and    if  they are    properly
treated they will  go  together.  Rheumatism is rooted in the blood, in poor,
watery blood.    Sometimes cold, damp
weather starts    the aches  and pains,
but it is the condition of    the    blood
that is at fault, ami only by correcting  this,  and  making  the  blood  rich
and red can tbe rheumatic poison be
driven out.    This is exactly  what    is
done in trr%treatmcnt of rheumatism
with Dr. Williams Pink Pills.    Acute
and  muscular  rheumatism show     improvement as thc thin blood is    built
up, and when the blood has been restored   to   its- normal   condition, the
rheumatism is driven out and does not
return    as long <st-s the    blood is kept
rich  and  red.       There  is  no  part  of
Canada in which some rheumatic sufferer has not been cured by Dr. Williams' PinltPills, and they do not hesitate to express their thanks for what
this medicine has done for them.    A.s
an  example,   Miss  Annie  S.  Dedrick,
R.R. No. 2, St. Thomas, Ont., says:���
"Dr. Williams  Pink Pills cured mc of
rheumatism after a great many other
remedies had failed.    The pain in my
arms and shoulders was so great  that
I  could scarcely  sleep.       I  could  not
raise my arms to comb my hair, and
could  not  dress  myself  without  help.
In  this* condition  1  read of a  cure of
rheumatism through the    use    of    Dr.
Williams I'ink  Pills    and   decided    to
try  them.     I  got  half a dozen  boxes

Arranging for Wool Crop
Co-operative   Scheme   of   Marketing
Will Again Be Undertaken
Sheep owners of Manitoba and Saskatchewan have already been notified
by thc governments of the respective
provinces      that      the      co-operative
scheme of marketiivg will again bc undertaken this year.    For the past few-
years farmers in  these  two provinces
have sent their avooI to a government
centre for grading and marketing.    In
Alberta the wool is handled by wool
growers' associations, of which there
arc four or rive in thc province.    Thc
industry has grown enormously since
a proper system of grading and marketing  was  introduced,  and  it  is   expected that there will again be a large
increase in     thc    number of growers
participating, as we'll as in thc quantity of wool handled in all three provinces.

Papa!

A>-new tone is observable  in the German press; for example thc  Liepzigcr Volkszeitung in explaining  the enormous indemnity figure, says:  "It must be remembered that great  tracts of French territory have been  rendered useless for many years. The  devastated regions arc twice thc size  of Saxony. Moreover, Germany took  considerable quantities of stocks and  bonds from thc occupied territories.  In the export warehouses stocks -of  manufactured goods were taken to  Germany, together "with the cargoes  from the ships at Antwerp and the  different river boats. Finally, even the  kitchens and bedrooms of the inhabitants in the occupied territories were  entered. There is not a place -where  a German non-commissioned officer  armed with a requisition slip lias not  presented himself. The confiscated  merchandise was resold in other countries with enormous profit.  "Better still, systematic devastations were operated in thc leading industries on a great scale. First the  warehouses were emptied, then parts  of the machinery were confiscated,  and even thc old iron were resold.  Factories, looms, foundries, machine  shops all fell into tlie hands of the  devastation commission. It was  thought thus to get rid of competition for many years or during the long  period which France and Belgium  would need to reconstitute their industries and restore thc devastated  lands. Germany hoped to be able  immediately after the war to/ofTcr her  products  to   thc  world."  The  German  people  seem   to  have  been kept in ignorance hitherto of thc  "acts committed" by the  German  armies.

The German musicians in  particular seem to be resentful ovcr  thc order as a measure which prevented them from earning their daily  bread, while thc Taeglischc Rundschau and thc Berlin Tagcblatt admit  that the mourning was far from being  completely effective.

As to wfiat the settlement board  intends to do with the    tracts that  will be made available  to the   soldiers their policy is very clear, and  there, is no denying that   tlie plans  evolved   in   this respect   are   both  sound and   generous.    As   regards  the 40-acre tracts   that   tlie   board  proposes to retain in its   possession  for the time being  it   is   earnestly  hoped that a a similar   comprehensive development policy   will at an  early   date   become   effective.    In  other words   The   Review trusts  that the board is planning,   if need  be, to proceed    with   the   development of the   un taken   areas ,to at  least a similar state as to   productive  capacity, if not to a more   advanced degree.  This year, particularly, with its  .gr-eately increased influx of land  buyers, the demand is solely for at  least parially improved places; properties where a man go on the land  and produce something tiie first  year. The call for this class of pro-  perty is not due to the fact entirely  that the buyer is limited as to  capital, but rather to the fact that  he does not care to tackle land  clearing with its arduous labor and  micertaintity as to ultimate cost of  such effort. Invariably he has the  money wherewith to buy an improved place, and the fact that  there are none available here at the  price he is willing to pay has sent  more than a score of would-be land  owners to points further west.  The Land   Settlement   Board is  vested   with   wide powers both   in  acquiring   and     developing    lands  and it is   hoped    that   when    the  transaction is  closed    and the area  taken over that very aerie us at ten-  ti m will be given    to the    clearing  up and making ready  for   cultiva  rion as much of tlie    tract    as    the  board.s financial reeonrees will permit.  \Y" take it. th*- board's policy  i- *..* ���������_*������������������* nieti on their lands at the  '.������������������lrii'-s* possible moment and thus  -"Mr*: to y;r;i sunn*-return on the cap-  i'al invested.

However, some straws which  The Review takes to indicate the  direction the wind is" blowing, are  furnished in a statement which Mr.  Nelems, chairman of the board,  gave out at Victoria on Thursday  last, 3--S reported i.n the Daily Colonist. One very pertinent paragraph in the Colonist's story reacfi^  to this effect:  "The chairman .of the Land  Settlement Board visited Golden,  whence he drove to Creston, Nelson and other points, in company  with Director Ward, in charge of  that particular section. At Creston he inspected ai0,000-acre area,  our prosperity,    and   we are in ���������he  business for dividends."  In adittion to showing    capacity  Irs,-*, <-l>~-  .~~-.j..:     i-~  xxr.

It consists of most  excellent land and is favorably situated."  ���������'An advance statement of that  nature can bear only one interpretation, and that is that the board  strongly favors purchasing here,  and under existing economic ccn-  ditions we think there is little to  fear as to the purchase not being  made, particularly when one recalls  the favorable impression Hon E. D.  Barrow, minister of agriculture,  gathered of the Valley during his  brief visit here last August.  In connection with the buying of  this 8000 acres readers should not  overlook the fact that the government: at Victoria very shortly comes  into possession of several hundred  acres of crown lands of excellent  quality that are now held under  timber license. With the purchase  area settled and well developed it  becomes at once apparent that  these lands of their own now known  as timber limits" will-   considerably  _j ���������__ i j 4.��������� it--*..

Any few dollars the board may  pay the Canyon City Lumber Co.  in excess of the board's original  valuation will be returned to the  board's offers may fold when it  comes to place aformentioned  crown lands on the market. And  it might not be amiss to observe  that due to the fact that these at-  present timber license areas adjoin  a well developed community they  will sell readily to resident land-  owners, who about that time will  be ready to increase their holdings.

While from various standpoints  ���������July 1st has much to recommend it  r  as a day to celebrate, sight must  not be lost of the fact that it has a  particularly inopportune feature in  that it comes in the midst of the  very busy strawberry picking  season.  For the whites possibly the taking of the day off would not be attended with any serious effects to  the berry crop, but with the Si.  washes the matter is entirely different. Their concern for the best interests of the berry grower is a decidedly, minus quantity, and to take  in the doings of this sort would  necessitate their losing at least  three days���������one to get ready, one  for the day itself, and the third to  recover from the after effects.  Seeing, too, that the holiday talis  on a Tuesday, and the reds are inclined to take Sunday seriously  even in a berry season, it is just  possible that the Dominion Day doings might tempt them to make it  a fonr-day layoff in order to do  their devotions, or whatever they  need the Sabbath for.  Besides averting some disaster  to strawberry harvesting, the withholding of tlie affair has other advantages. A date early in August  will lind more money in circulation  especially amongst the younger  generation, as well as .hiding the  citizens generally in a better humor to make tho day thc all-round  success thc veterans deserve.

Finding that they were not pursued,  they slackened their pace.  ''Are you doing a bicycle tour?" asked thc girl, glancing at the waterproof  bundle on the handlebars.  "No.    Just a little spin for thc day. 1  I'm in business in Paris.    Been th-  for   thc   last   three   years.     My   name-*  is Rugglcs."  "Mine is Darthea Wcstbrooke," she  answered, and Rugglcs thought the  name precisely fitted her. "I live in  Paris, too, with my aunt, Miss Cha.1-  land. We're stopping for a few days  at this little village on ahead. I'm  studying art, and I wanted to make  some sketches of thc river. Wc come  out here quite often in tlie summer.  Here's aunty, now."  Ruggles had. already seen approaching them a woman with a tall and rather angular figure, who walked with  a swinging, masculine stride, the speed  of which increased as she discovered  her niece strolling along in company  with an entirely strange young man.  She bore down upon thc couple like  an osprcy on a brace of young and  downy ducks, and Ruggles observed j  that her features were high and, at  that particular moment, severe.  "Suppose you thought I was never  coming, my dear," said Miss's 'Challand,  \ and stared questioningly at Ruggles.  and four saleswomen upstairs sn t..e  ladies'. Of the male clerks, two \vere  Americans, two French, one English,  one German,' and one Spaniard.      Of  the    Americans,    one    was    Ruggles.  They Were   trim,   well-dressed,   efficient  young  men, and  all  on  excellent  terms with one another, though    fre-J  cmently  of but  slight  esteem  in     the;  eyes  of  the  manager,   who was  a fat  and  fussy  Frenchman   with  an  undue \  ! sense   of   his   own   importance   and   a  tongue which could be bitingly insulting to those over whom he held the  power   of  bread  and   cheese.     In   the  whole establishment there was but  one employee whom hc did not dislike and who did not return the sentiment with art interest which compounded with almost every, passing  day. From' a business standpoint,\  however, he was a good manager and  kept the store up to the highest of  commercial levels.  The middle.of thc forenoon following his adventure on the Marne found  Ruggles in the shop trying on a pair  of shoes. He was not trying them on  his own trim feet, but upon those of  a listless young American tourist who  was leaning back iu thc chair- with a  cigarette hanging from his lips, his  hat on the back of his head, and a  bored, petulant look in his watcry  eyes.  Down on his knees before this  peevish youth, who was of about his  own age, knelt Ruggles, shoehorn in  hand  and  the_ vortex   of  a  veritable  $rrAGSTAFFE*S  Real  Seville  Orange  Marmalade  AU Orange and Sugar���������  No camouflage.

"Arc they coming?" she asked  breathlessly.  "I don't believe so," he answered.  "I guess thc ducking cooled 'em off.  We'd better keep on, though."  "Do you think thcy could have  drowned?*' she asked. "The river was  deep right under tlie bank."  "Oh, they're all right." he answered. "I looked oyer and saw them  hanging ou to thc bushes. One of  them started to climb up, and I  swiped him over the head with the  easel. I am sorry, but your pictvue  fell into  the river.*'  "Never mind thc picture. Let's  hurry on. I say, it was plucky of you!  Such horrid beasts!'-' She gave a  little shiver. "I fancy it would have  been all up with me if you hadn't  come along just then."  "Oh, they may have been just trying to bluff you into giving up your  purs*-*," said Ruggles, though he had  hi> doubts on this score.  He took the bicycle by the. handlebar.**, and they started to walk on rapidly, with occasional backward glances.    The  girl  had   recovered herself,  pale, was cn-  a tn'  -.irely  .

"This is Mr. Ruggles, aunty," said  Darthea*; and added to Rugglcs, "My  aunt, Miss  Challand."  Miss  Challand    returned  Rugglcs's  best  professional     bow with a brief  nod, and the austerity of her face did  not soften.    Darthea quickly smoothed thc situation.    In a few brief words  she described what had just occurred,  and, having thc artistic temperament,  she  may  possibly  have    exaggerated  the heroism of her rescue, quite omitting the precipitate retreat of the rescuer.      Ruggles,    listening    modestly,  was impressed by the fact that perhaps he was more of a hero than hc  had realised.    Whether true or not, it  was certainly gratifying to hear Dar-  thea's glowing    version of thc affair,  while, the gradual softening that overspread  Miss   Challand's   austere, features  was if anything even more flattering.    Then,   much  to  his  surprise,  hc discovered    that  thc    aquamarine  eyes of thc spinster were filling with  tears, and that her sallow skin held a  warm flush.    At the conclusion of thc  brief narrative, she took a stride forward and gave him a grip of thc hand  that might have made him wince, had  he been of the wincing sort.  "Good for you!" said Miss Challand  huskily. "Mercy, what an escape! All  my fault for letting the child go oft  alone. We ought to inform thc gendarmes immediately." .,,^  "Oh, I don't think I'd do that if I  were you," said Rugglcs. "They'd  haul 'cm up before the jugc de la paix,  and we'd have to hang around and  give evidence, and then they'd lei 'cm  off with a warning. I guess they've  had  their lesson."

This suicidal habit  may cause lockjaw and women are  warned  to  stop it.  A few drops of a drug called freezone applied directly upon a sore corn  gives quick relief and soon the entire  corn, root and all, lifts out without  pain. Ask the drug store man for a  quarter of an ounce of freezone,  which costs very little but is sufficient  to remove every hard or soft corn or  callus from one's feet.  This drug is an ether compouad  and dries in a moment and simply,  shrivels up the corn without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding  tissue or skin.

Indicate Healthy Business Conditions  In JPrairie Provinces  In the bank clearing returns* for  April of Western Canada cities are  signs of greater business activity,  which will no doubt be more accentuated during the next few months.  Compared with April last year, the  increase at' Calgary was over half a  million dollars���������$6,594,744, as against  $6,081,990 a year ago.  At Edmonton, Alberta, there was a  jump from $14,761,201 to $16,826,237,  a gain of more than two million dollars. Such increases are typical of  the -returns at the other cities  throughout the three provinces, and  not being confined to one or two  places, are indicative of the healthy  business conditions generally prevailing.
