Land  Settlement Board, two members of  which were here on Friday and Saturday, looking for fairly large tracts of  land to buy for soldier settlement purposes.  The board members were Chairman  Nelems and C. R. Ward oi Cranbrook,  the director for the Kootenay district.  They arrived on IiVid*?.*"* afternoon and  were met by a delegation of the  Creston Board of Trade, and in company with Messrs. Bevan and Robt.

After submitting a list of areas that  the Boai-d considered might interest  the settlement board members, detailing their location and giving some  idea of the shape they were in, Chairman Neiems was called upon to address the gathet-ihg, which was quite  large and very representative.  Mr. Nelems very briefly outlined the  t he powers vested in the land settlement board but pointed out that at  the present time they were working  solely to obtain suitable sites for soldier settlements, with it view to getting the men on the land at the earliest  possible moment. He enumerated sey-  erai localities w'ere settlement districts has been estajblished, going into  some   detail     regarding   the   one   at  .     JTT _i -   V������pJt4l-liCUJl.V.  The modus operandi is after definitely locating a settlement area to ad-  " vise the soldiers who haye registered  -as wanting to go on the land as to the  location and nature of the area, and  to those who desire to se'ttte there to  advise the board.  When the applications are all in a  practical soldier-agriculturist is detailed to personally investigate the qualifications of theupplicants and to select the very best of them to the number it is desired to locate, giving the  preference to married men. Wh<in this  task is completed the men are sent to  their hew homes and put to woilt under settlement board supervision to  clear the land, and for this they are  paid the current rate of pay for this  class of labor. -10-acre farms are provided, and from five to ten acres cleared on each.  When all the 40-acre tracts have received their quota of clearing up the  whole tOaeres is sold to the soldier at  the price ol" '.he raw, land phis tin* actual cost of clearing, with $500 knocked off as a government bonus to the  soldiers. With this work completed  the soldier farmer is entitled to receive a loan up to ,$5000 for future operations and another $2500 for buildings and equipment. These latter  !o<mw are from tlu* fed'"���������������������������������������������������! government, and 25 years is allowed Lo repay  them and also to repay the land  settlement board for the land and  clearing expense.  Mr. Nelems was quite frank in stating that Mr. Ward hiid looked the  Vi'lli'" over previously ami was ravor-  ably impressed with this section and  the lion.

On request a committee consisting  of Robt. Stark. Jas. Adlard, A. R.  Swanson, W. H. Crawford and Geo.  Johnson were named to discuss the  whole soldier settlement subject as it  effects the "Valley, and they were in  conference with the v!Rif.o*������s ?mt?t nl=  most midnight.  On Saturday Messrs. Nelems and  Ward were autoed out to Canyon  City and spent the morning and up  till train iu the afternoon going., over  the greater part of the unsold area in  Block 812 with C. O. Rodgers. Their  personal inspection has all the remarks  of having convinced them of the desirability of the area for before leaving  they were not   backward   in   stating  *.i-p<p.f. t.f-i-'?' r......~- 'r-vp-^.'ciji'.'.'-.v-.

However, something  definite as to whether they will buy  here or not is" looked for within a  month. If the buy is made Mr. Nelems assured that the soldier- party  would be at work at clearing operations within sixty days of the purchase being arranged.  ��������� ���������. W'h*'-?

On Sunday Mr. Nelems was suddenly recalled from Nelson to Victoria, and Mr.  Ward was back here on Tuesday and  Wednesday going further into the  matter, but before leaying for Cranbrook yestex-day nil that could be  learned was nothing definite had been  accomplished in the way of final  agreement as to the price of the Canyon City tract and until such agreement has been reached the matter  cannot be referred to the minister of  agriculture whose o. k. is necessary  before the purchase ca*n be made. The  Review understands that a decision  one way or the other will be made  next week, and if the Canyon City  lands are acquired a detachment of  soldier farmers will be along before  .July. Failing the purchase at Canyon  City other available areas here may  be recommended.

Miss Mabel Craigie returned on Mon  day from Wardner, where she has  been visiting for the past month.  P. V. Staples has just had the telephone installed in his   residence here.  Jim Long commenced work last  week as provincial fire warden for this  part of the Kaslo riding, succeeding  Frank Putnam, who resigned at the  end of last season. Jim's appointment  is popular and is ts. good one as he t-ap.  handle that sort of work with the best  of them.

This stops, "the;  pump and means a saving of gsssftllne  and on pump upkeep over other types  which when pressure gets too high  keep on pumping liquid back into  the tank.  The union Sunday school opened on  Sunday last under most favorable circumstances so far as attendance goes,  41 scholars being out for the initial  session. The turnout was rather larger  than anticipated and finds the school  short of teachers. So far the following  have taken classes-; Mrs, Biraey, Mrs.  F. J. Klingensmith', Misses B. Fraser,  Jane Long and Ruth Kliugensmith,  with the former selected as superintendent. Tt is hoped several more will  Volunteer as teachers as eyen the present attendance is too large for five instructors* and more scholars are looked for. It is hoped the Canyon City  people will lend a helping hand, both  with pupils and   teaching   assistance.  Sixteen members were in attendance at the May meeting of Cres-  on Board * of Trade on Tuesday  night, which was in charge of Vice-  President Bevan. Three nejvv members were elected to the board, in  R. J. Long, Capt. Crompton and  R Walmsley.  A letter was read from R. F.  Green, M.P., holding out little hope  of getting the requested $10,000 for  a drill hall at Creston, but assuring  that he would give the matter his  close attention. He also advised  that request should be made to the  War Trophies Board at Ottawa for  the field guns and other souvenirs^  of the great war that Creston Val-...  1 A        t* II*?  ley may want ior sciaiers memorial decorative purposes.

Elaborate preparations were made  for thc historic, occasion of handiirg  thc peace terms to the Germans in  the Trianon hotel, both in and outside thc building.  Outside there was a small army of  gendarmes    who    formed  a    barrier  against thc approach of such persons  as  were  uot  entitled  to    enter   -the  room where  the    momentous    scene  was   to   be  enacted.      Inside    everything wa* in readiness for thc meeting between  the  allied and associated delegates with the German plenipotentiaries,     although      the      early  niorning hours had witnessed a rearrangement of the great hall, for orders had been    received    to    prepare  seats for 80 delegates, instead of for  58,  who  were   expected   to   comprise  thc maximum delegation. The French  functionaries  busied themselves  with  the   task  of  stretching out   tables  to  accommodate   the   extra   guests    and  laying  a  new   rug  to  fit  the  altered  dimensions.    The increase of the delegations  was  effected at thc  cost of  space which had been assigned to the  press.  Aside from the great men gathered in the hall, the most striking feature was a largo, antique rug of  bright, almost garish colors, which  was brought from the Chatea.i Versailles to cover the. open space in the  ��������� centre of lhc hollow rectangle of the  peace table. Although dating from  thc time of Louis XIV, the rug is in  51 perfect state of preservation. It is  known as a Savonniere, and il served  to brighten the entire room.

C.  nAmana-fct I iRirtu gumic-rnv  UAililUff-a LlllCil BJlUUdBill  Flax for fibre roust be grown   from  seeds specially grown for fibre purposes, as strains used for other   purposes  sacrifice length and   firmness   of fibre  to amount of oil   in   the   seed.      It is  quite possible to get a   crop   of   fibre  und a crop of seed from one plot,   but  as the plant? woduce better fibre when  pulled before quite x'ipe a large proportion of seed is unripe and   so   useless.  In Ireland for instance the 'production  of seed".ind fibre are carried on separately, whiie in Russia   both   are   produced on same acreage.   The fact that  Ireland Jiasflourished as a flaxr-produc-  ing country has   perhaps   too   firmly  rooted the idea  that   successful   fibre  flax growing depends   upon   a   moist  climate.  So far flax has been produced in  Canada chiefly from Russian seed and  of course such flax is not entirety suited to our conditions of climate, and  has done much to prejudice Canadian  farmers against  fibre   flax     growing.

In point of area Canada would seem  to be pre-eminently suited for the cultivation of fiax. To date practical experiments have proyen the suitability  of extreme east and w_est of the country and of the ''������&' Li^Wf en.ee valley,  thus in die a ting that the moisture in a  a river valley may be quite as satisfactory as sea moisture.  The  coast areas of B.C. have   produced flax of most excellent qualtiy; it  yet remains to be proved if similar fine  qualities can be produced   along   the  river valleys of the interior.   Perhaps  the most suitable area   for   this  purpose will be the   reclaimed   Kootenay  fiats. For though flax does not do well  on land that has been long under water, this would be no objection  on   the  fiats as most of   this   area,   has   only  been under water for a few   weeks   a  season. Here would be found not only  the soil content   suitable to fibre   flax  dv-vc*IouiJie*"i."ii but ixibO tue    median icui i-  conditions as well, as fibre flax requires some depth of soil   to   provide   anchorage for-   its   delicate   thread-like  routs which penetrate the soil to nearly the same distance as the stem   rises  above. Por this reason the   soil   must  be well drained and well   worked   pp.  An excess of humus   gives   excess   of  wood in the fibre and so   impairs   the  purity of the fibre.   On this account, it  is customary   to   use fertilizer on the  previous crop.    The smoothness of the  sui-race is so essential   that   that   the  Held   may  he   rolled   before   or   after  seeding, or both.

If flax is "-slanted be-  tween.rows of fr!*it, .trees , it.wip be  possible to reach.the weeds from either, .sule. ^   -  To harvest both seed and fibre it is  necessary to pick flax when tbe stems  have turned yellow for about half of  the length of the stem; though flax  pulled earlier is supposed to produce  finer, quality of fibre. Binders for harvesting fibre flax are now being perfected, but hand pulling has the advantage of allowing for sorting where  plants vary in length. The tips of the  roots must be kept even and the jspil  shaken off. The flax is tied iu bundles  about 8 inches in diameter with the  binding stalks.near.the top so that the  sheaves may be spread put at botyom  for drying rather th.an stooked. T[le,  seed-bolls should not be allowed to become e*ntangled. If ;it is desired to rett  the,flax at once.the, tops may .be cut'  off and the seed capsules spread out to  dry. There are various machines for  separating the seeds and rebinding  the flax.  Successful flax culture has the ad-  yantage.of lending itself to co-operative manufacturing and has the further advantage of very small undertakings being successful. Nor is iinen  manufacture the only object attained  in its culture.

Hayes, Editor and Owner*  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAYr^lAY 16  When the people of Canada last  year subscribed $695,000,000 to the  second Victory Loan they did a  great thing for themselves and the  Dominion. They enabled Canada to  make a splendid finish in the war,  they kept busy the wheels rf the  eonntry,s industry and made a first  class personal investment.  On May 1 these Victory Bondholders will draw their first interest, return on these bonds in the  four, of $18,000,000. Every province will share in this, from  Prince Edward Island with $85, -  000, up to Ontario with $8,600,000  And this is only one-half of what  these 1918 bonds will pay this year.  The 1,100,000 people who bought  the bonds did not inflict on themselves any hardship in doing so.  They did themselves a good turn,  for the bonds are quoted three or  four points above par. The money  is absolutely safe, and it is enabling  the bondholders to collect $36,000,-  000 this year.  Will this amount be permanently saved? It will, if those v? ho draw  it put, it into War Savings and  Thrift Stamps. A War Savings  Stamp is a Victory Bond iu miniature.  to library patrons this week.

Raspberry Cup  Changed for1919  (Kaslo Kootenaian)  Kaslo having got through -ihe  agonies of clean up day and having  emerged therefrom with flying colors, the community can afford to  sit back-as it were and witness the  efforts that, are being made down  in the djrection of Creston to rout  out the tin cans, and last year's  decayed vegetables and make things  generally presentable. Some of the  natives of Bro. Hayes' "Garden of  Eden" are getting quite het about  it, and are of the opinion that  something ought to be done to end  such a,/disgraceful state of affairs, as witness the following  effusion of a correspondent of the  Review :  . ���������* Why not print a strong letter in  The Review re a clean-up and paint-  up day in and around ureston. It  certainly do--s 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  unsightly back premises, as there is no  moving picture show, even, in which  to pass the time between trains, or  after a person's shopping is done.  VVhy not make use of the Wednesday  afternoons and thus.put that otherwise useless holiday to some good use.  Cleanliness is next'to godliness."  All of which indicates a terrible  condition indeed. There i.s a suggestion here for some enterprising iu  dividuals, provided Cro9tonites do'  noj, tako the gentle hint and clean  up their front aud back yards a  little bit. Some enterprising gent  i-oiild buy a couple of goats and  past lii-v t hem amidst the tin cans  and empty beer bottles of tho fruit  metropolis. (-hutts are said to thrive  on a diet of that sort,. Another  party could o,stii,blifi)i apicturo show  and run oil'two or throe reels be-  t.wot'ii the trains, which wonld ibn1*  make tho midday hour one grand  round of delirious excitement.

John Keen, M.P.P., scored a  decided success at his meeting with  the ratepayerX on Saturday uight to  reyiew the work of the past legislative session at Victoria. He had an  audience of about a hundred voters,  quite a few of whom were ladies, and  his non-partizan handling of the various matters on which lie touched was  a much-appreciated change from the  old-Lime meeting of this* sort. The  chair was occupied hy Capt. Crompton  who spoke briefly in introducing the  speaker, and at the close.  The fore part of Mr. Keen's address  was devoted to a recital of some of the  acts passed that were of special benefit  and interest to women, He emphasized the measure that aimed at giving  female employees in all classes of industry a fair day's pay and standard  hours. The act that prohibited the  employment of white girls as help in  Chinese restaurants and laundries.and  a bill that regulated the working, hours  in-Chinese wash houses, that was intended to eliminate the unfair conipe-  tion the white laundries are up against  in that the celestials worked two and  three shifts," and usually under very  unsanitary conditions. He briefly out  lined the simplified process of bringing  to justice-'husband'-- who desert their  wives; the new law that prevented  marriage of girls until' they had attained 21 years, except they had the  c msent of parents or guardian; and  the amended act that gave mothers an  equal paternal right with fathers in  all matters affecting their offspring.  Hitherto the father has been solely  and all powerful in this regard.  Speaking generally he dwelt at some  length on several beneficial amendments that had been made in the mining laws, more especially in the direct  tion of aiding the prospector and small  niineowner. Tlie appointment of dis-  t-ict mining engineers had been of  material assistance to the government  as well as those engaged iu the industry. The features of the new grazing  rogulation,**, which became eifective on  Friday last, were briefly touched on.  These provide a nominal charge on  stock running on provincial areas.  Copies of the act have been left with  secretary Lidgate of the Farmers' Institute and the speaker urged all interested to fantili-wi/.e themselves with  the new regulations. Mr. Keen was  at, some pains to direct attention to  the legislation that insists on wagons  being equipped with tyres np to six  inches in width for heavy hauling,  pointing out that the continued use of  the narrow tyre had boon responsible  for the heavy charges for road upkeep.  Getting' along to what had been  done for this end of the Kaslo riding  Mr. Keen stated that of .$81,000 that; it  whm estiinait-ii was needed for repairs  and new work of various sorts for the  whole ������������������.���������n'titiH-iuiy hut .".'JCTOO hud  been voted. He wiih pleased to announce, however, that in the grant for  bridges he had been able to secure nn  ample appropriation to .mVH the long  wanted high-level bridge over the (j oat  1 fiver at. Erieknon, and the hi Idy,*-  would   assuredly   be     completed    thi';  Official instructions have just  been received by local fruit selling  agencies of a change in the raspberry cup for the 1919 season.  What has been known as the Two-  Fifth cup and in use for the past  few seasons here is no longer a  legal package. It is replaced by a  hallock that is a half-inch shallower but is an inch wider and longer.  For strawberries the full pint of  other seasons will again be used.  By introducing the new raspberry container the whole of B.C.  now has a uniform cup. While the  new cup will hold slightly more  than the one formerly used, on account of its limited depth it will bc  necessary for growers to pack the  fruit at the edges to prevent slipping in handling and thus expose  the shallowness of the package���������  something that it was hard enough  to overcome with the old cup.

I am just drawing your attention to this as it-is of great importance that all B.C. berries going to the  market should be in uniform packages, and in placing your order for  supplies you will govern yourself  accordingly.  Yours very truly,  K. G. L. CLARKE  With the new cup will come a  new crate, whioh will he slightly  shrunken as to depth, but will be  about three inches wider and almost five inches longer. Those  who have looked the new hallock  over predict it will not be suitable  for the shipping of black currants,  and it,is likelv these will have to go  out in the full pint strawberry cup.

It is a heavily  tattooed design of a huge    crab-like  creature, which he afterwards told mc  is  called "Thc Spider of Death,"   or  the scorpion.  Tn some horrible frenzy of imagination this creature, which had been  pricked with blue, red and green  inks upon his forehead, has been  given three bodies. One lies over the  other, and each outline is clearly  visible. It shows first the shield of  Bulgaria, above that the military  drum of Germany, and, super-imposed upon these, ihe fez, the star and  the crescent of Turkey.

"Among the many women slaves  in this place there was a young  Arabian girl who had been stolen  and sold to the man who was our  master. She was unhappy to thc  verge of madness, and thc ho.ro ���������-  through which she went on many-  occasions nearly drove mc out of  I witnessed things done  to women that are past belief," and  I was helpless, a branded prisoner  with a price upon his head. 13y  methods that are too long* to tell you,  this Arabian and myself plotted and  planned together and succeeded in  escaping. Finally we managed to get  in touch with British troops.  "Let mc tell you that no imagination can do full justice to what I  have been through during thc time  of my imprisonment in Turkey.'5  Before he left I asked Mr. Rough-  ton if there, "were many cases of  branding such as his. and lie. told mc  that the particular brand of the  "Spider of Death" was not tisuai in  Turkey.

Health Can Only Be Restored  Through the Use of a Blood-  Making Tonic  Debility is a loss of vitality not  affecting any one part of the body  particularly, but the systcm generally. It is dangerous because it reduces  the body's resistance to disease.  When debility follows acute diseases,  convalescence is slow, and one's  strength does not return as it should.  An attack of influenza often results in  debility that persists for months.  Everybody recognizes that the remedy for debility is to build up the  blood, because the blood goes _ to  every part of the body, and any improvement in its condition is quickly  felt throughout the systcm.  Iu cases of simple anaemia, or debility following acute    diseases  such  as fevers or influenza, Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills will bc found valuable, because thcy rcallv build up the. blood  price by  x tie   x. | and strengthen 'the nerves.   Tlicre is  d,   Toronto, Ont.   no othcr metliciiie    as valuable     for  j growing    children,    and for men and  ���������women    whose    nervous    energy iias  ids docs']been overdrawn.     Thcy    arc worth a  fair   trial   in  every   case   where    thin  blood and weak  nerves  have  started  the trouble .   The value of Dr. William.**.' I'ink   Pills has been  proved in  the home of Mrs. John  Flam, Owen  Sound,    Avho    says:    "My    daughter  Mable     was    troubled    with  a    bad  rough;    she was pair., weak and  her  ; appetite was very poor, indeed 1 fcar-  [ed that she was going into a decline.  ' A  friend advised thc use of  Dr.   Williams'  I'ink   Piiis    and    after  taking  eight boxes   she    was again  enjoying  thc best of health. Again last autumn  Spanish influenza attacked our home,  and after the acute .symptoms    were  past, both myself and another daughter  were  left very much  run    down.  My  daughter  was  so  weak  that she  could not walk to school aud    would  tremble when she got upon her feet,  i was so weak niyseu ihai i eould nuii  do niv housework. Again  wc resorted  to Dr.  Williams' Pink Pill:*,    and    in  each  case wc  took five  boxes,  ulu-n  we were a.** well as ever wc had been.  I   never  enjoyed better health   than   I  am uow doing, and am able again  to  do my housework.
