Crestoii Valley
A^to Associ-atioB
The best attendance ah organization
meeting of any sort has eyer been favored with was on hand Friday night
for the purpose of forming the Creston
Valley Auto Association. Not only
were, the car owners out in strength
but the enthusiasm manifested toward
the club formation Was equally encouraging.
C. O. Rodgers was called upon to
preside over the gathering, and after
briefly stating the case in favor of or*
ganizution the usual motion was put
to go ahead and get the club going and
carried unanimously, and W. B. Embree Was forthwith appointed secretary for the meeting, The election of
officers was the.first item of business,
and the following were chosen to handle the affairs of the association for
the ensuing year:
President���C. O. Rodgers.
Vice-Presidents���R. S. Bevan.
.Secy -Treas;���W. B. Embree. ���
Executive���R. J. Long,   J. F. Rose,
tS. G. Foreman, W. K. Crawford. Geo. ���%ucr.e(3soi
An annual membership fee of $5
was decided upon, and it was also
agreed that monthly meetings-should
be held���the first Wednesday in each
month. The secretary was asked to
get copies of the constitution and bylaws of neighboring clubs, and a committee will be named to draft a similar
set for the governance of the local
In an open discussion of what work
the club should undertake among other
things it was decided that signposts
should be placed along the main roads
telling travellers just wher.e they,are
heading for, how.far it is,.etc,':"--It'was

Rev. Mr. Mahood could not hold English Church service as per announcement on Monday night. The invading
hosts of mosquitoes were so large, persistent and hungry that it was deemed
unwise to un necessarily j expose the
home guard and sojourners even at a
religious service.

Tbc continued hot weather is shortening up the strawberry crop, and

crop this year.

The Valley is in the grip of its sometime end of June dry spell.    Since the
14th-there has not been eyen a passing
shower so essential to mature the early
season prospect of a heavy stra\vberry
crop.    In  the absence  of  these rains
the strawberries-.on light land and the
heavier soil that has been indifferently
���cultivated have started to fall off.    To
offset this to some extent it is fortunate that taking the Valley as a whole
there is more berry area under irrigation this year than ever before, and in
ths  fields  where  the  water   is  being
used the daily picking is well up to expectations.    While  it  is already evident  that the  early-June prospect of
as high as 18,000 crates will not materialize, yet it is as equally certain that
berry  shipments  -Jvill   at   least  equal
last   year.      Enquiry   at     the    Fruit
Growers Union   on Wednesday moru-
iug elicited the  fact   that up till Tuesday night (21 tb) they had shipped just
as many strawberries as had gone out
up to the end of June last year.
Next in importance to the quantity
of berries is the prospects fur prices.
While it, is equally certain last year's
prices will be equalled, and most likely
bettered some, yet, market reports
bold out no hope at present, for the
early-season expected average of $1 a
crate. Tbe Vancouver market, which
to some extent reflects quotations at
prairie points, right now quotes coast
and Vancouyer Island berries at $H.2o
and $.1.50 per crate, with carload lots
rolling pruiri-uvai-d for ut leiutt a week
imw. Just what margin in excess of
these figures will fetch in competition
on the same market in it debatable
point, but possibly 25 cents would be
about right. And these uro wholesale
llgures; not, the price to Ibe grower.

if* griohoberrieH, aud they are coming

are in good dcniuml nt, present. A
inodest .;ro|> esi.iinatn ou these would

Building Camps at
Canyon City
The  advance    guard of   the   corps
that will have charge of   Land Settlement   Board   operations   at   Canyon
City,   arrived * the   fore   part of   the
week, and   on   Wednesday   morning
were" busy    getting   the   cainps   and
other buildings necessary   to.accomm.
odate the men under construction.
The work here will be in charge of
Col. Lister comiii'iander of !"*****> iu2nd
Battalion, who is' just shortly back
from overseas. With him will be associated Lieut. Rice, B.C.L.S., who will
supervise the engineering work; Sergt
Coop, accountant and timekeeper;
and Messrs Liddicatt and Turnley who
will supervise building operations. It
is the intention to have a store in connection with the work, and this will
be in charge of D. C. McKinnell. These
gentlemen are.all here, as is also Col.
Latta, who is the Laud Settlement
Board's advisory counsel in the development and setting up of soldiers on
these settlement areas.
Part of the development ouiiit is already here, including a motortruck,
which was unloaded on Tuesday, and
more of it is under way, including ��-i
car of powder, and the store stock. As
soon as the buildings for the men are.
ready the first installment of the men
who are- to clear the land will be along.
These are hand picked former farmers
who have expressed a preference for
larm riit, iiiost oi Vvuoru will be remaining as residents on the land that is
being cleat ed. Messrs. Lister and Coop
have brought their families with
them, and are taking up their residence in Creston.
Local men who were overseas with
the 102nd speak in the highest terms
of Col. Lister for such an undertaking
and this is shared by Hpu,.Mr. Barrow,
minister of agriculture, who is quoted
by the Vancouver Daily Province as ���
'"Col. Lister, who has hiid practical
experience both in farming and logging, will be given charge of the clearing oper.ations for the new soldier
settlement in the Creston district." announced the minister, who expressed
satisfaction at being able so soon to
follow up the announcement of Col
Latta's appointment with the annoucc-
ment of Col Lister's acceptance of
Hon. Mr. Barrow said he had been
personally impressed with Col. Lister's
sound knowledge of farming, which
bad been obtained in bis native county or Lincolnshire. The administrative and executive (*.ialities which won
Col. Lister his way up from a lieutenancy are much valued by the land
settlement officials.

The formation on  Friday   night
or the Creston Valley   Auto Association provides this   district   with
an organization that the  community is peculiarily in need  of,   and a
look over the list   of   officers   and
consideration of the thirty or thirty-
five who make up the car-owning
fraternity in these parts warrants
in looking forward to   very   useful
service being rendered by this body.
If there is one thing   more   than
another that makes for the,content-
in en t of citizens generally,   as well
as in some measure assuring future
prosperity, in a section of   country
situated   as   is the Creston Valley
at the present   time,    surely   good
roads rank almost first.    Time was
when a fair good wagon road N was
put up with fairly good grace,   but
with the coming   into   so   general
use of motor ears, and the doubling
up   of   provincial    taxes���to   say
nothing of the special   license    the
. car owner is forced to   take   out���
no one can wonder at the incessant
demand for more  roads and better
roads, more particularly the latter.
While admitting the   justice   of
the demand for improved highways
it must not be  expected   that   the
miracle  of   providing   high   class
transportation facilities is going to
come over night no   matter   what
forces are brought to   bear   on the
authorities at Victoria. They haven't got the money to   do the   work
with. To illustrate just the   position the works department   finds itself in this regard it   will only be
necessary to cite the case of   Kaslo
riding,   where   EThginrer   Ramsay
asked for a vote or .$81,GOO for this
year's  effort, and of this   less than
#30,000 was voted.
Undoubtedly a special   effort of
the auto association will  be to   see
to it that good roads are provided,
and in such   an   undertaking   the
club can be of valuable assistance to
the works department minister and
the   riding     road    superintendent.
The latter has all the   earmarks of
being both a capable   and   accommodating official,  and   if the highway problem as it effects   this part
of the constituency is placed before
him from time to time by an organization of representative   and road-

.'act that funds arc-limited for work
of tlvis sort, labor is a bit indifferent and quite high in price, while*
-.riif- of the- other expense factors
in road construction    all    make    it
during the summer season; it would
do more good   than   putting on a
few men for ai few   days at a time.
It was figured that each man could
keep from fifteen   to    twenty niiles
of road in excellent repair. V-7e understand that this   is   the   sj'stem
followed in the state of Idaho, and
those who have occasion to use the
highway between here and Bonners
Ferry tell us that the roads are in
first-class shape always.
Another suggestion that has been
made in connection with road build
ing is that where new road   is   being out and circumstances will permit both sides of the new highway
should be planted    to a   variety of
clover that has   a    reputation    for
thriving on the quality of   soil encountered in roadmaking   operations, We fancy this would be particularly apprecirted in the new Arrow
Creek cut-off now under construction.   Every  year during the high
water season 'local cattle have to be

booze supply;-and   the  coming   of
hard times   to at least ease off th'e
gambling, or some other providen-
ial abating  of   the   present   evils,
would it not be  better for all concerned to fall in with the   idea   of
the ballad which has it that "They
all just did a^s they   ought to do, or
if not they   never   told."    A little
more publicity of the   sort Mr. Lee
and the   Herald are unnecessarily
peddling and the town will be running neck and neck with Fernie for
B.C.'s undesirable honors.

The old saying about God helping those who help themselves may
be alright as affecting itdividuals,
but when it comes to being the

the Herald absolutely refuses to
consider its efficacy, much less encourage and effort to apply the
remedy at Cranbrook.

of moral reform has, apparently,

On behalf of the citizens the Herald pleads guilty to the   charge   of

The Creston Valley isn't the only
point  in B.C.   where   high   prices
last year has tempted   growers   to
tackle the growing of   green   peppers for the firstf time.    Report has
it that there is a heavy planting of
these all through   the   Okanagan.
This is due to the exceptionally favorable   prices    that   obtained   for
these last year, but   opinion    is divided as to   whether   the   market
quotations will rule as high in 1919.
In 1918 there was an   embarge   on
such products,   and   this   coupled
with the fact   plantings   were   no
heavier than in 1617 made  market
conditions exceptionally   favorable,
This year there   is   no   guarantee
that the embargo will be maintained, and with   the   considerably increased area set out   to   this ~crop
some   disappointment   may    be in
store for those who   have   gone in
for them.
According to Senator Lachmund
head of the green-fruit department
of the  Pheasant   Northwest   Products Company, of Oregon,   hay or
grain crops as an income   producer
will have   nothing   on   the   berry
crop this year. In order to convince
berrymen that he knows   what he
is talking   about,   Senator   Lachmund comes forward with a statement that   berry   growers   should
make from .$500 to $600   per   acre
on their berries for   the   next   five
years at the prices which   his company is  now   offering.    The   company is ready to contract for 1,000
acres each   of   strawberries,   rasp
berries  and   loganberries   for   the
next live   years,   at   prices   which
should make an   earning   per acre
of the amounts already stated.

If there is one man in the  section who sleeps   well   at  this prrticular season of the year that  gentleman is Sam Fraser.     "While   at  other parts of the  year  Sam has   his  troubles in common with other ranchers, when ifc  comes   to   the   growing  season he bids dull care   begone,   and  the reason for his ease of mind at this  juncture is entirely due   to   the   fact  that his ranch property is blessed with  an irrigation system that  one   might  say is an improvement on   nature   itself.   The trouble   with   the   weather  man at times is that he don't   seem to I  distribute his product equitably; he is  too prone to make ifc a feast or a famine���������with the accent on the   latter as  regards a supply of  moisture   during  the months of June and July.  The water distribution   scheme   on  the Fraser  place, is   the   well-known  Skinner system.   This is an overhead  pipe line which provides a small water  outlet every three feet along the pipe,  said outlets having a carrying capacity  of 30 feet.    That is   the   water forced  out through   these tiny holes will distribute itself 30 feet in a straight line,  and with the pipes of  the   reversible  pattern, by simply   giving the  pipe a  half turn the stream of  water is hurled an equal distance   in  the  opposite  direction, and with   the   usual   wind  and air currents  that prevail there is  always a pretty   good   distribution in  between the three foot pipe line spaces  The system was   installed   lust year  when about 856 feet of the   pipe   line  was got into use, and just how   it - increased production  is   shown   in   the  output last  year  as   compared   with  1017. Mr-   Frasor's   shipping  records  out  cal growers pretty  oly along the Crow line, where the demand is heavy,^nd the crop on the  Fraser ranch was in the neighborhood of 10,000 pounds.  The water  is  applied  twice a   day  when required,   about 2500   gallons a  day being a day's use.     This is pumped by a 3 h.p.   gasoline   engine.    This  year the pipe line is being extended to  cover a fair-sized stretch of blackberry  bushes as well as a few rows of strawberry plants,   and  its  effect   on   the  blackberries will* be watched   with interest.    When tne.'writer   saw   fchesH  they    were      loaded     with     bloom,  and if the Skinner system brings them  along the same as it has   garden stuff  certainly a record for  blackberry production will be established.  "While the system has proven a gilt  edge investment ifc should not be imagined that it is an inexpensive outfit.  the   neighbor  hood of 30 cents a foot, to say nothing  of the fittings aud   erection costs,   as  well as the engine and rotary pump  needed to force the water up.    Any  mention of the Fraser place would be  incomplete without a reference to the  up to-date equipment otherwise   employed whi������*/h  among other things includes a Beeman garden tractor.   This  will handle a plow, disc or cultivator  equally well,  and certainly has   the  place looking as good as the best of  them, and on a much shorter working  day.   The o?s!y fault with the Beeman  is that it is not speedy enough  to at-  ���������      - - - i        rum      A   J  At Vernon the small boy has an  awful appetite for breaking windows.

Lost City Discovered  The Forgotten People That Once  Lived in New Mexico  A. lost city of 20,000 homes has been  found in a great canyon barely forty  miles from the city of Sante Fe, N-M.

Thus,  from French soldiers of thc air it is  learned that swallows have been observed to maintain an average altitude  of 700 yards, and wild ducks one of  1,800 yards, and that green plovers  have, been seen at a height of 2,150  yards. Incidentally it may be mentioned that the ducks were moving at  a speed of sixty-five and a half miles  an hour when flying upward and sixty-  nine miles an hour when flying hori-  zotally. Another aviator, when flying  at 9,500 feet, saw swallows high above  him. And another, who made his observations at a height of 6,000 feet  during a heavy bombardment, with  anti-aircraft shells bursting all about  hi in, says that hc saw 200 golden plovers, perhaps driven higher than usual  by thc fact that the vicinity was an  unpleasant belt to cross.

Net    Earnings    Greater    And    Total  Assets   Show   Very   Satisfactory  Gains���������Many New Branches  The annual report of the Merchants  Bank of Canada, just issued  for  the  year   ended  April   30th,   1919,   is   thc  most satisfactory in the history of this  bank.      Not  only  were net earnings  greater than in ihe previous year, but  deposits,   both   interest   bearing   and  non-interest   bearing,    current   loans,  quickly available assets and total assets   all   show  very   satisfactory     increases.    Net earnings increased from  $1,236,000 to $1, 383,569.    Total deposits in Canada now stand at ovcr $138,-  000,000, as compared with $113,000,000  for the previous year.    Quickly available assets stand at $62,750,000, a gain  of over $5,000,000 as compared    with  the previous year.      Current loans in  Canada amount to $95,874,000, a gain  of almost $20,000,000 ovcr the figures  for  the  previous  year and  furnish  a  striking illustration  of thc large part  the. Merchants Bank is playing in the  business needs of the country.    Total.  assets of $166,725,000, compared  with  $141,000,000 last year.  Other  evidence   of   progress     were  shown by the fact that since thc close  of  the  war  the   Merchants  Bank  has  opened  many new brandies and sub-  branches.    It is thus doing everything  possible, lo  provide adequate banking  facilities   to   thc   country,   and  at   the  same time absorb its officers now returning from  overseas-    Sir  IT.  Montagu Allen, the President of the bank,  in   his   address   reviewed   the   balance  sheet aud spoke of the death of Andrew   A.   Allan,   one   of   the   directors.  General manager D.  C.  Macarow  referred   to    the    satisfactory     business  which had been transacted during the  year, and the  promosing outlook for  the. coming year.    Altogether it was a  report which reflects the highc-d credit upon the management of tlie bank.  Further evidence of the shai eliolders'  confidence in the directors was shown  by their authorization oi an  increase  in the bank's capital from $10,000,000  to  $15,000,000.      This  increase,  is  to  provide   for   future   expansion.

It's strange how some men can be  so tight Avith their loose change-  KEEP CHILDREN HEALTHY  To keep children healthy the bowels must be kept regular and the stomach sweet. Nine-tenths of the ailments which afflict little ones are  caused by derangements of the boAvels  and stomach. No other medicine can  equal Baby's Own Tablets in guarding  either the baby or growing child from  thc ills that follow a disordered condition of the boAvels or stomach- Thcy  arc a mild but thorough laxative and  never fail to give results. Concerning  them Mrs. W. B. Coolledgc, Sarnia,  Out., says: "I have used Baby's Own  Tablets for over three 3*ears and have  found them thc best medicine I have  ever used for my children. I never  have any trouble giving them to my  little ones, and they have saved me  many a doctor's bill. My advice to  all mothers of little ones is to keep a  box of the Tablets in the house."  Thc Tablets are sold by all medicine  dealers or by mail at 25 cents a box  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co.,   Brockville,  Ont.  fn spite of the fact that it is her  funeral, Germany wants to sit on the  front seat of the hearse and talce the  reins out of the hands of the driver.-���������  New York Tribune.

When the blood gets thin and  Watery, when the nerves become  weak''and exhausted, when your  vitality is run down and you reel  weak and tired it is because  nourishment  is lacking-*.  You may be eating*: as usual but  your digestive system fails to obtain from the food you eat the elements from which new blood and  nerve force ia created."  Because Dr. Chase's Nerve Food  supplies this element to the blood  and nerves it is the most successful  of restoratives.  ���������While personal experience with a  medical treatment is the only absolute proof that it will benefit  you. still we are all similarly constituted and what will help one will  help another under similar conditions.  This is why it is so interesting to  read the .experience of other peopi������,  and many will find in this letter  their own conditions described.  Mrs. Thomas Williamson, Pictoa,  Ont.. writes: "For the last twenty  years I have had trouble with my  nerves. I suffered from sleeplessness, and, of course, my. system was  often in a run-down condition from  nervousness. At different times  when I would have severe attacks, I  was under the doctor's care, but  this only gave me temporary relief.  Twice I was to a sanitarium, in Toronto, where I secured some relief  at the time. This past summer I  Suffered from another nervous  breakdown, and it was then that I  commenced using "Dr. Chase's Nerve  Food. I took a treatment of this  medicine and can now get up In  the mornin-*** and do nay work, whieh  was something I could not do previously, because I used to get  strangely confused.

Amongst .lie fascinating problems  which make engineering science at  once a most exacting and a' most  fruitful study the characteristic behaviour of metals under varying conditions provides many curious cases.  For example, grey cast iron grows  appreciably in volume when exposed  to high temperature. This characteristic, which causes much trouble in  cast dies, valve seatings and other  parts, is believed to hc due to internal  oxidation caused by thc penetration  of hot gases into the metal. A remedy recently suggested in England is  to eliminate free graphite from the  surface of the metal, this being the  cause of its porosity. Successful results have heen .obtained by annealing  the pails for several days in iron rust  at a temperature of from 1,650 to 1,830  degrees fahrenlieit.

With an IDEAL Home Canner  and Steam Coaker cooking is a  joy because food is better cooked  without the work and worry of  cooking it.  You prove the principle this  way: Set vegetables and custard  side by side to cook in the Ideal,  and the custard will not take on  the odor or flavor of the onions.  The cooking is. dope"-by steam  pi-assure, and all the nutriment,  flavor and food value of the food  is cooked right into the food.  There is no evaporation. Foods  weigh the. same when cooked as  before.  The cheaper cuts of meat and  less expensive foods eire mrde as  tender and delicious as the more  expensive cuts of meat .and the  higher-priced foods cooked by  the ordinary method.  ip*f>or"s cannot scorch, diy uv.  over-cook, burn. Food may be  kept hot and deiicious for hours.  Foods may be cooked iu tbe  same utensils in which they are'  Ui be seryed.  By tbe salne principle all of  these splendid results are ascom-  plished, the trouble of cooking is  done jiAvay with- the cooking  foods do not have to be watched  basted. Turned stirred. You  simply prepare the food as you  have beeh accustomed to doing,  and place it in the Ideal. That  is all there is to cooking. The  Ideal will do the rest. It will see  to it that' everything is cooked  just right and never bother you  once; and it will call you if the  water needs replacing. There is  a whistle I'or that, purpose. It,  blows for 15 minutes before the  water is gone.
