Selliiig Record  ifignres contained in the Creston  Fruit Growers Union advertisement  this week furnish inteM-Bting reading.  Southern Albertfe a������t*l part of Saskatchewan are facing: one of the worst  crop failures in , the' history of these  districts. ���������?l-������stG-s:h*^':Had practically  the same weather io:^bntend with as  these proyinees and in fact has even  less rainfall. Under the same conditions that have come so neap spelling  ruin for tbe praJrie fanner the local  selling agency has Ij-sen able to show a  big increase in shipments over last  ���������year and alsc over all other seasons.  No doubt part of this inci-ease is due  tc the satisfaction tbe Union has been  giving during the past two seasons  and to the energy of the present man*  agement in going after new business,  but after making all due allowance for  these factors the fact remains that the  Valley has stood the test of what  would appear to be disastrous weath  er conditions of drought and exceptional heat, and has come out with the  right side. That it has done so should  be most encouraging to every rancher  and every prospective rancher in the_J  district, **After standing, up under this,  year's drought it would seem almost  certain that The Creston Valley is in-.  sured against crop failure on any season and it is equally certain that given  fayorable conditions there is no limit  to the possibilities of crop production.  One cannot read the figures referred  to above without being Impressed with  the fact that the valley is most fortunate in having such an efficient selling {  agency; one that &~m~7?~s,i~^,.J^^pp'  is at least severity en-ployed*   'The ������"���������"������������������ j tfmi  ection of small cottages on the cleared  tracts has  already  commenced,  and  the men with families  are  expecting  their wives and children along.

They will either be at Creston or  at Hykerts, with chances mostly in  favor of Creston, but it may be a  couple of months before the matter is  decf-'led.  The Valley received its long waited  drenching of rain via the thunder  storm route on Friday night, while  Sunday night was also showery in  spots.

Work is again under way on the  survey of the Arrow Creek-Creston  Valley irrigation. system, the  assistant water rights engineer from  Nelson arriving last Friday, and got  busy with the necessary help immediately. As a route for about eight miles  of ditch or pipe line has to be definitely located and all the construction details connected therewith figured out  it will take some time to complete the  field work, after which.' tbe offiiee  work must bs done. However it now  looks as if a full report on the project  can be ioofced for by the end of the  year.

At this distance it  looks safe to state   that   the   1919*  ���������"���������p**-  strawberry crop* will bring close to  $55,000.  Tbe rains of Saturday and Monday are haying a tendency to slightly prolong raspberry shipping*  though only the very late varieties  are benefiting by the arrival of ike  long-overdue moisture.

In both black and red currants a considerable gain is likewise  ���������noticed. Due in a measure to the  shortage of sugar limiting the de  mand, and other market difficulties  tbe prices on these lines while they  will be readily profit producing, at  the same time they will not bring  the attractive figures some bad  hoped for.  As to apples the Yellow  Teansparents will be available in a  few days now. The crop of these is  small and, generally speaking, the  apples also seem to be below normal size, though there is a chance  that these latter rains wiii fill them  out. In 1916 a r -.irvey of the Valley  j sliowed about 350 trees of Trans-  parents, since which top grafting  has reduced the number, so that it  will be seen that these are not  muoh of a factor in apple production.  The   Valley   will   tako  et with new potatoes this year.

In a  number of cases where slops were being taken to name boards of conciliation, there are good prospects of  settlements being arrived at by negotiations.  a's Time  m  lesnisg  Canadians have joyously and enthusiastically celebrated the signing  of thc Peace treaty. Canada's unprecedented army of some hundreds  of thousands of men is all but completely demobilized, and the "vast majority of the soldiers are again at  work in civilian occupations. One by  onc, all the war lime orders-in-coun-  cit, regulations ami prohibitions are  passing away, and tlie Dominion is  again rapidly being placed on a Peace  basis. The acutcness of thc sorrows  caused by the war is being assuaged  by that greatest of all healers, time,  and the feelings of racial bitterness  and even hatred which are aroused  by war are fading.  The titanic struggle is already a  matter of history, but while memory  lasts people will remember thc horrors and stress of the past five terrible ycars, and all future generations  will be more or less affected by the  experience through which mankind  was called upon to pass. But while  remembering these things, it is well  that as a people we should keep even  more vividly in our memories the recollection of the heights of loyal devotion to country to which people attained, the self-sacrifices they so freely and gladly made, the patriotic services they so splendidly rendered.  During thc war the people of Canada  rose to undreamed of heights of  greatness and achieved a national  splendor of which any people might  well be proud. In a word, Canada  found its soul���������something which in  the more materialistic days of old  thi"*   country  seemed to lack.  In the past five trying years Canadians achieved confidence in themselves; tl*.ey learned to do by doing.  They  discovered  latent   native  abilif*y  Li.  i fi,        y cp\i.. y a t y      .lj    y.Lj  things and do them well. In the  stress and tumult of war they learned many u---**pui;>. not least of which  was the discovery that for well-nigh  fifty yea*'-, the Canadian people had  busied u'.i-ium-h. i s. and cjuarrcucc,  and di-p'idi'-d, over many petty matters  a-.xl animosities of a long  Canadians called their  a -.Kition, but it was not,  .-���������r.'.lu I"' v. hile its people  .:>.-. al vision, a national otit-  i:-..i:y n.'.ii'.in.'il aspirations.  ry .'.;.- -���������;'. :;o;;t a real In ���������  '.'.-.-���������  ���������:������������������;������������������:��������� '���������: -   --".pplied what  d'-a.  1 Joan J  lac I  I   ideas  id    past.  union  i"  hie  .4]'  iit-O,  ii'i-t  and, lacking  ini].'.lent   in  people,     \\ ho  big and n.asti-r-  : ���������.-���������nam   so      in  .:.;.',.    pa 1: ich   1,,.*'.

Criticism was stilled, even"  though it might be fully justified.  The chronic fault-finder found Iriru-  sclf decidedly unpopular, Our people  pulled together for the common go 1J  and the triumph of the common  cause, instead 'of pulling against onc  another. The danger is that in the  relaxation from war effort, and in the  pleasant and less crucial days of  peace, wc fall back into old habits.  Is it too much to hope and expect  that the newer and better patriotism  born of war will remain with us to  flourish and develop thrqu-g-hout the  gladsome  days  of  peace?  Canadian patriotism stood the test  of war, but the real test of the patriotism of the people of this Dominion will come in the years of  peace upon which we have now entered. It will be a sterner test, lacking, as it will, the incentive of a great  struggle to win, a glorious victory to  achieve. It will call for infinite patience and hard work. Yet, after all,  the prize to be won is something  finer, better, more lasting than the  prize  of victorious  war.  The winning of the war, to which  the people of Canada were willing to  bend all their energies, and in the  accomplishment of which no sacrifice  was too great and no service too arduous, guaranteed to us and our children their independence and liberties  and the blessings of Christian civilization.  But the possession of these priceless things will be of little value to  us unless we use them as wc ought.  Rather will their possession prove  our own condemnation if wc do not  worthily employ them to make Canada truly great and a benefactor among the nations. We enjoy independence to develop our country for  weal or for woe, to create and firmly  establish a nation renowned for reform and advancement, for" thc elimination of social ills, for the splendor  of its education; we enjoy thc widest  liberty to do good, not license to do  evil.  With the dawning of this new era  of peace, Canadians should practice  self-control and continued self-denial.  Thcy should find the same gratification in rendering service to the nation  now as in the days of war. Thcy  should be patient and earnest in instituting reforms, but impatient with  all wrongs. In a word, Canada needs,  and needs badly, thc war spirit of  the   country     and   its   people   carried  into  all the  activities of  the.  ycars  of  1  P1' a 1" e.  THE CAUSE OF BACKACHE  Only in Rare Cases Does Backache  Mean Kidney Trouble  Every  muscle     in  the body  needs  constantly a supply of rich, red blood  in proportion    to  the work    it does.  The muscles of the back are under a  heavy strain'and have but little rest.  When    the blood    is  thin  they lack  nourishment, and the result is a sensation of pain in those muscles. Some  people think pain in the back means  kidney trouble, but the best medical  ciutuOfities   agfee   tuat   LracKaciiS  sci-  dom or never has anything to do with  the kidneys.    Organic kidney disease  may    have progressed    to    a critical  point   without   developing  a   pain   in  the back.    This being the case, pain  in   the  back   should  always   lead  thc  sufferer  to  look to  the  condition  of  his blood.    It will be found in most  cases  that  thc use  of Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills to build up the blood will  stop the sensation of pain in the ill-  nourished muscles of the back.    How  much better it is to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for the blood than to give  way    to unreasonable    alarm    about  your kidneys.      If jrou suspect your  kidneys,  any  doctor   can  make   tests  in ten minutes that will set your fears  at rest,  or tell you the  worst.    But  in any event to be perfectly healthy  you must keep the blood in good condition, and for  this purpose no other  medicine    can    equal Dr.    Williams'  Pink Pills.  You can # get these pills through  any dealer in medicine, or by mail at  50 cents a box, or six boxes for $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co.,  Brockville,  Ont.  Opportunities In  tm%..  The Sheep Business  Western Canada Offers Ideal Conditions for Sheep Raisers  There never was a-better chance  for the development of the sheep industry than there is in Western Canada today. Mutton and wool are  both in great demand and will continue so while the livestock shortage  iu Europe prevails. This shortage is  not likely to be relieved for many  ycars. In the meantime the farmer  with a few sheep will be able to make  good profits, which, if he is a beginner, will go ..a long way towards  helping him to get firmly established. Farmers who have followed  sheep-raising in many lands before  settling in Western Canada claim  thcy know of no couritry where sheep  thrive so well as here.

A  Mild  Pill for Delicate  Women.  ���������The most delicate woman can undergo a course of Parmeiee's Vegetable Pills without fear of unpleasant  consequences. Their action, while  wholly effective, is mild and agreeable. No violent pains or purgings  follow their use, as thousands of women who have used them can testify. They are, therefore strongly  recommended to women, who are  more prone to disorders' of the digestive organs than men.  Pigeon Races  Winging through the air at an average speed of nearly 45 miles an  hour, sixty racing pigeons flew from  Scott, Saskatchewan, to Edmonton,  a distance of 225 miles, recently. The  race was one of the weekly series  put on by members of the Edmonton  Homing Association. Out of the 60  birds released at Scott at nine in  the morning, seven had reached Edmonton, within a few minutes of each  other, about half-past two o'clock in  the afternoon. The first pigeon to  reach its home loft was one owned by  William Ruff.  The ease with which corns and  warts can be removed by Hollo way's  Corn Cure is the strongest recommendation.

The point raised by Sir A. B.  Aylesworth that thc war time ordcrs-  in-council, notwithstanding their  own provisions, will not be operative after expiry of thc War Measures Act is generally conceded. A  similar opinion was given by a committee of legal experts in Greal  Britain with regard to ordcrs-in-  council passed under the Defence of  the Realm Act.  It is pointed out    that    under    thc  treaty with  Germany     peace  cannot  be proclaimed until  after  ratification  by  Germany and    by    three of    the  principal    allied and associated powers.    The principal allied and associated powers arc-defined in thc treaty  as   U.S.,      British   Empire,      France,  Italy and Japan.    Ratification of the  treaty with     Germany alone     is  not  regarded  as   being   sufficient   to   end  thc war and thc War Measures Act.  There will be also need  to bc ratification of peace with Austria.    Peace  with Germany would    be    merely    a  partial  peace.

Local Raspberries  In the Alice Siding section more especially growers have had trouble this  year with cane blight on the rasp-  berry bnshes. The McMurtrie ranch  yvani quite saverely hit in this respect.  In endeavoring to get at the root of  the trouble Mr. McMurtrie took the  ���������matter np with the horticultural authorities both at Victoria and Ottawa,  and we feel sure that the letters below which were exchanged will be  of quite general interest locally.  Ih reply to a letter describing the  trouble as fully and ifet^li*if4^*i^'*a% a  man on the spot can do so by correspondence. J. W. Eastham, the provincial plant pathologist, writes as follows:  The form which winter injury takes  will depend considerably on the nature of the conditions, as a number of  different factors enter into what we  commonly call "winter-injury." Much  of what we put down as this in the  Lower Mainland is really more due to  water-logging of the soil caused by the  hardpan coming to the surface and  foi ming pockets, the roots being water-logged are aimpiv drowned out. Our  wet season being of course the winter  one, we are liable to put this down under the general heading of winte-in-  jury. The injury, however, is much increased by low temperatures at this  time. Bushes in ihis condition are  much more liable to suffer even in a  comparatively mild winter.  I have seen a good many cases  where the canes have leafed out and  borne fruit and then died as the fruit  was developing, the fact being that  the roots were not killed outright but  injured to such a degree that they  could not supply the sap necessary for  the development of tho fruit, and the  ���������whole cane died under the strain.  Cane-blight is n fungus disease and  when once established in a plantation  .affects the young canes each season,  being carried over on to these and  showing its most destructive   results  GUAR^A-GAmST firs:.  One Reason"Why: Dry Creeks, Poor������c;fops^  when the crop is developing. There is  ���������little that can be done except thorough pruning out of the old canes  and destruction of them as soon as the  fruit has been picked. Cut them down  below the level of the ground if possible as the fungus can continue growing on the old' stubs; also gather up  and burn any fragments of canes lying about as they can harbour the -disease. As long as you keep the canes  right otherwise, it does not seem that  it will prove a limiting factor in raspberry culture.  I have not experience with regard  to the King variety, but I know there  is quite a difference in susceptibility  even amongst other  varieties.  When attention was called to the  trouble the Dominion authorities at  Ottawa turned the matter oyer to the  botany division of the experimental  fsrm work near that city, *asd fo!!o*i**"=  Soasnoebi"  ing is the  letter  the  head   of that  uepaitmeut writes on the subject:  The disease which you describe as  occuring on. your raspbearies looks  yery mueh like cane blight. The -disease principally affects the fruiting  canes, which all of a sudden wilt frcsis  the top downwards and dry up.' New-  canes are frequently killed as-'tHey- are  produced. The infection is carried on  the stumps of cut-off canes where it  spreads into the parts below ground,  communicating the disease ta the  young canes. Nearly all varieties,are  susceptibiev li^is said tisat Columbiana  is mbre resistant than any in New  York Stalfe."'        -'���������������������������" "'/',...  The District Horticulturist aid Vised  yoh quite correctly as to the immediate destruction of the infected canes.  Likewise all dead fragments should be  carefully renioyed and burned.  How your. 'infection originated is  difficult to tell from your information.  The disease is generally disseminated  through infected nursery stock. Once  established- it   spreads  from   plant to  .^W.     ISiy^B is ho krio ������ n cm.-  curejfor i-~.  pocTtets, so in spite of a pretty good  syttem of tiie drainage, many roots  are kept too wet and then kill out or  die in the spring; others that are weak*  ened are finished off by the cane-blight  which then appears to anyone who  has not examined the other conditions  as being the right cause. This was m  own impression from specimens sent  in until I had an opportunity of further study of the other conditions.

Hunt the plant espert at  the coast writes as below :  There is a certain amount of cane-  blight on the raspberry canes. In fact,  we have quite a little of this blight in  the nioistor sections of the country. I  am inclined to think, however, that  the disease itself is not the most important cause of the loss in plantations  ���������where it occurs. I have recently been  making a rather careful investication  of some plantations in the Fraser Valley where cane blight was apparently  becoming an exceedingly serious factor in the culture of this crop. I havo  found, however, that its worst effects  are produced on plants that have been  weakened through poor under drain-  ago and stagnate water combined  with winter injury.

CHAPTER III.  On returning to his room that evening, Rugglcs spent a good half-hour  in serious and steady contemplation  of his favorite portrait of Ruth Downing���������a half-page reproduction of a  photograph that he had clipped from  "Town and Country," and which represented that charming girl in the  act of serving in a tennis tournament.  "1 guess she was sort of disappointed in mc," mused Ruggles to  himself. "She thinks I'm just an unambitious little mutt that's satisfied  to go on for the rest of my life down  on my knees with a choc-horn and a  button-hook, fitting shoes. Well, I'll  show her!"  Thereupon hc produced some  sh-cls of the store's official correspondence paper kindly furnished him  by the pV'ctty stenographer (who  cherished secretly a tender sentiment  for the clcan-a*'. young American)  and proceeded to compose an exccl-  ler.t businesslike letter to the Europe;*.;, general manager, stating his  p.i.alit'i. cations.  so that if at any time in the immediate future he had occasion to be  displeased with Ruggles, he could  always send an unofficial letter slating that subsequent events had led  him to believe that Ruggles was  scarcely the man to fill the important  position of local manager to thc best  interests of the company.  Before the end of the week Ruggles received a courteous reply from  thc European general manager saying that his application had been duly  received, approved and forwarded  with the proper endorsement to the  home office. He was pleased, also,  to commend Ruggles's -ambition, and  trusted that his ycars of faithful service might soon meet with their due  reward, as the retail stores in Great  Britain, France and Italy had proved  so successful that there was every  prospect of establishing others in  Austria and Switzerland within the  coming year.  After reading this letter Ruggles's  face shone with such a radiant light  that thc customers he waited on were  loath to leave the store, and to one  busy man running in to replace a  broken shoe-lacing he sold t*vyo pairs  of shoes, a pair of pumps, a dozen  pairs of socks, two tins of polish, and  a pair of down-east garters. Ruggles' zeal was irresistible. He felt  that his beloved company had proved  its title to good faith with a loyal  employee and the recognition of earnest effort on thc part of two generations of the Ruggles family. To  Rugglcs, in liis exalted state, its precepts seemed almost Biblical. "Well  done, thou good and faithful servant,"  read the message in the letter. "Thou  hast been faithful over a few things;  I will make thee ruler ovcr many  things."  The truth of the matter was that  the Walkeasy Shoe Company of America, like other big industrial enterprises which have reached a high  mark in the world of trade, owed  much of its -success to that essential  factor of.all successful organizations,  the faculty of putting the right man  in thc right place. Whether it be the  administration of church or state, empire or democracy, district or borough, community or family, this fundamental principle of cohesion is necessary to success.

You reckless men aud women Avho  arc pestered with corns and who have  at least once a week invited an awful  death from lockjaw or blood poison  are now told by a Cincinnati authority to use a drug called freezone,  which, thc moment a few drops are  applied to any corn, thc soreness is  relieved and soon the entire corn,  root and .all, lifts out with thc lingers.  It is a sticky ether compound which  dries the moment it is applied and  simply shrivels thc corn without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tissue or skin. It is claimed that a quarter of an ounce of  freezone will cost very little at any  of the drug stores, but is sufficient  to rid one's feet of every hard or spit  corn or  callus.  You are further warned that cutting at a corn is a suicidal habit.  them both extremely, wondered if  perhaps he ought not to state frank-  ly_his own position in life. Had uic  opportunity offered, he might have  done so, with perhaps thc infornia-"  tion that thc company owed its present great success to the mechaiiical  inventions of his father, but that, owing to this parent's lack of business  ability, he, Ruggles, had been obliged to begin with a subordinate position and to work his way up. But  as neither lady showed thc slightest  curiosity in regard to his personal  affairs���������they fearing that possibly he  might be "in trade" and preferring to  accept him on his obvious merits���������  Ruggles held his peace.  For since     his  meeting with  Ruth  Downing,     ambition     had seized  his  soul, to shake it as the swift current  of thc Marne shakes a reed.  (To  Be  Continued.)

When my little girl was 2%  years old she had a very bad attack of  bowel complaint. Nothing prescrib-.  ed by the doctor seemed to do her  any good.

Lorenz, however, proved an excel-',into a bottle containing three ounces  lent teacher, and Rugglcs made ra  pid progress. Thc conversations of  the two were alternately in English  and German, with French to fall back  upon when either was at a loss. In  thc course of this association Rugglcs  confided to Lorenz his iriotive for  mastering the German tongue as  quickly as possible, at which the Austrian asked a-few pertinent questions  in regard to Rugglcs's reasons for  being so sure that he stood in the  direct line of promotion. On hearing  thc situation explained with the buoyant optimism, characteristic of his  comrade, Lorenz became gloomily  distrait for several minutes. Following this period of distraction, he returned to his English with increased  application.

Th<e  system adopted in thc Khaki College  rj4s that of free tutorial classes.  Instead of drifting into occupations for the moment more lucrative,  these returned men who left their  studies to shoulder a rifle arc being  induced to resume their interrupted  studies at a critical period in their  lives, and are thus-rsavejd to thc professions, preventing an incalculable  loss to thc province.

A cash donation of $4.55 from the Women's Institute is also acknowleded.  Rev. T. McCord and family, who  have been holidaying at Kootenay  Bay with friends from Ned-cm the  past two-weeks, expect to return the  end of the week. Services will be held  at the usual hours of" worship in the  Presbyterian   church   next Sunday.  A Lindley of the B.C. Fruit Market  Lethbridge, Alta., arrived on Tuesday  on his usual midsummer business trip  to the Valley. While the prairie crops  are poor in many places ho is still confident that with the, export market  available apple prices will at least  equal those of 1918.  The weather report for July shows  that month' the hottest in spots for  some years back. There were three  days almost in a row when 06 in the  shade was recorded, and others when  the mercury travelled up close to SO.  The total 'rainfall for the month was  under half an   inch.  Bert Arrowsmith arrived back on  Saturday, after about eighteen months in khaki, looking pretty much the  same as ever. Bill Arrowsmith and  Hilton Yonng, who were on police  duty in England when Bert left, constitute about lhe onlv ones of the local recruits still overseas.  Land owners in lhe Valley will be  interested in knowing that the provincial government proposes having a  .sale of land.1' in arrearn fi r taxes this  yetn���������early in October. Lands in arrears for taxes up to 1017 are to be sold  Last year's sale only accounted for the  arrears at the end   of 1015.  they are not going to show last year's  size. The crop of them, however, is  limited, the 1916 horticultural, suryey  showing less than 350 trees of them  in the whole "Valley.  The Creston Board of Trade will  meet in August session on Tuesday  night. A good turnout is. asked in view  of much important business, including arrangements to handle the visit  of the Nelson board members who will  be here on fair day���������to see the exhibition, the Valley and get first information on Kootenay Flats Reclamation.  The ^ season's strawberry shipping  figures have now been compiled, and  these indicate,that-at least 13.000 crates went out to prairie points, while another 2300 crates of them were shipped  to the jam factory at Nelson. The  strawberry-crop alone should bring  about $55,000 into the Valley, Wynndel, of course, getting the lion's share  of it.  Dr. Rae, the. Bonners Ferry dentist,  was a motor visitor to Creston the  latter part of the week. He states that  the Boundary county, Idaho, is starting in at once to spend $192,000 on  road improvements and is counting  on this part of B.C.. to do something  in the same direction, so as* to enable  tourists to make their trip into Canada via Bonners Ferry,' Porthiil and  on to Creston.  The building committee of the fall  fair directors have chosen a stie for  exhibition -main building, at a point  on the other side of the present grand  stand, and some necessary grading to  permit of its erection Is being done  this week. It will'have to be, put up  inside the . quarter-mile track, but  otherwise the location lends itself admirably to the other- features of the  fair grounds layout.  A special meeting of Creston Farmers' Institute is called for to-morrow  night at 8.30 at the Auditorium, when  the matter of making a donation to  the agricultural association to help  finance the main building will be the  feature nf the gathering. The matter  of this season's haying on the flats  will also be discussed. When the Institute sold its trading department  to the Fruit Growers Union it had a  cash surplus of over $1000.  W��������� E. Ditchburn of Victoria. Chief  inspector of Indian agencies in B.C.,  has been here the past few days, along  with W. J*. Smith of the proyincial  department*, of lands, taking a hand  in defining Indian hay and pasturage  areas on the flats, and along with R.  L. T. Galbraith of Fort Steele, who is  in charge of the local band.^ have  at last laid down definite instructions  in the matter, and have deputed Indian constable Fred Ryckman to  camp on the job and see that the reds  live up to the bargain entered into.  The August   meeting of the Creston  Valley Auto   Association on Wednesday night had a considerable   grist of  correspondence  to  dispose   of, along  with the report of  W.   B. Embree on  the recent highways  association convention at Lethbridge last month. At  this gathering  the   definite assurance  was given that   the   transcontinental  auto highway wiii   be   built   through  the Grows Nest Pass, but as yet there  is nothing definite   as  to  when work  will start on  those parts of the present roads comprising   the route to put  them in first class shape for  such traffic.   A   roads committee composed of  S.   A.   Speers, J.   F.   Rose   and Geo.  Johnson was named to interview.road  foreman,   J.   D.
