Hold Preserving  Fruits 2 Weeks  All preserving fruit that can be held  for another two weeks should be kept  in the Valley for at least that time.  This is the word K. B. Staples, manager oiCreston Fruit Growers Union,  brings back from attendance at a conference at Calgary at the week-end of  the fruit wholesalers of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which attracted a very representative attendance. This wilj apply to crabapples in  particular, as well as other varieties  of fruit in  at   least some measure.  The reason for withoiding of every  possible crate of fruit of this sort is  the prevailing sugar shortage, which  is just now beginning to show signs of  a change for the better, and with the  chance of sugar supply being back  fairly well to norrnol by the end of the  month.  In practically every prairie town  right now���������and for the "ast six weeks  ���������S11E-|11' roulfl nnt. Inn.    l-.rv..r.lx*- :��������� l..~, ,  quantities than two pounds to any one  buyer. Due to this cause aloue wholesalers state that the demand for black  and red currants, gooseberries and  other -jelly fruits ceased to exist almost. Even the native wild fruit  that grows at some prairie centres  have gone unpicked on account of no  supply of sugar. In more than a few  cases wholesalers had to dump as gar-  barge supplies of currants that could  not be given away to retailers"* and  Mr. Staples encountered one firm that  had to get rid of a shipment of apricots that ran to almost $1000 in this  manner.  Mr. Staples reports that the wholesalers look forward with confidence to  . a good demand for apples at good  prices, Creston apples marketed  last year gave tip top satisfaction $p  all concerned. He was i**arti-cu5*^p:  #L-atineu to hwV������?;^-^/* direct "from the  manager of the Poi-t-ilge la "Prairie  (Man.)

Smith  the well-known cannery man of Hamilton, Ont., who inspected these same  Wagners at the request of the Dominion fruit inspector at that point pronounced them equal to the best he  had ever seen and sampled in his long  and varied connection with Canada's  fruit industry.  half acre of strawberries he set out  this year on the plot across the ranch  entrance is about the most likely  strawberry planting in the Valley  this   year.  Messrs. Baines, Constable, Pease  and Reed & Mather commenced operations this week clearing the right of  way for a flume to provide irrigation  from Lizzard Creek for their ranches.  W. T. Simister is getting ready to  go into poultry on a considerable scale  He is putting a 48 x 12 foot vaddition  tb the poultry house at present.  While playing about the ranch on  Tuesday, Gwen, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Webster,  had the misfortune to sustain a fall  which resulted in a broken arm.  Medical attention was promptly available and the injured member is coming along nicely,      .   '   . s  Wm. Kinnear of Vancouver, who  owns the property between the Pease  and Constable ranches, was a visitor  here this week looking over his property which he contemplates clearing  and locating upon shortly.

Although arranged on short notice  the meeting at Canyon City school-  house on Thursday night last, to discuss water supply���������both for domestic  and irrigation purposes���������attracted an  attendance of over forty, and the outcome was the organization of the Can"  yon Water Users Association, to proceed, with the work of investigation  and to report back as to supply available, and the probable cost of putting  in a suitable system.  John Woods president of the United  Farmers of Canyon City, occupied the  chair, with A. D. Pochin assisting as  secretary. The speaker of the eyening was W. J. B. Biker of Nelson, the  Water Bights branch engineer in the  Kootenays. His\talk was mainly on  the benefits of such an'organization,  and the work that*would have to be  done in connection with perfecting  organization in complianee with the  law in that regard. /  After hearing his clear-cut statement of case, after which the meeting  resolved itself into a sort of question-  asking session, it was decided to go  ahead and organize, and Mr. Wood  and Mr. Pochin *������ere chosen president  and secretary respectively of the association. Mr. Biker remained over until next day when Association Creek  was**staks*3 as per regulations for water'supply, and Mr. Biker completed  the,field woi-k.necsssary to enable him  to .very shortly submit a report on the  feasibility and cost of a pipe line.  The area th-jjit proposes to utilize the  water is situated between Grover  Keifer's and Albert Wesling's on both  sides' of .the road. Twenty-seven ranchers signed up as members of the association, bnt it is doubtful if there is  enough water to giye even a domestic  supaly to-morH^A5^'S������ 75 per cent, of  those who want 'to get in on'it.  It is stated that about " 1000 feet of  pipe would be required, approximately, to bring the water to the starting  point of the distributing pipe line.  wrtght of Hamilton, Ont., were yisit-  ors this week with Mr. and Mrs. E,  Cartwright.; having motored through  from the prairie, The men are.brothers, the latter being very recently  home after almost four years service  in the great war.

The. music was bv Carl  Wigen and Ryder Andestad.  The Wynndel Box Factory this  week imported a car of pine lumber,  which will be used in the manufacture  of boxes this season. This is the first  time'that outside lumber has ba.d to  be brought here for that purpose.  Mrs. R. Uri and Miss Bonga.Hagen  left on Friday for Burton City, where  they are yisiting friends for a few  days.  The Samstad' boys have gone to  Kitchener, where they are working in  the Paulson camp.

Fruit Market, Lethbi-idge, Alta., was a business  visitor here this week. He handled  considerable of the local strawberry  crop this year, and states that the  berries equalled the best on the market in every way.  Wvnndel's shipping of strawberries  this year is just under 8000 crates,  which went east, and another twenty  tons which the Nelson jam factory  got, or a total for the year of at least  10,000 crates.  Paul Hagen has just let thc contract  for slashing and,stumping three acres  more of his ranch land here.  bard of Trade  Has Many Letters  Twenty members were out for the  August meeting of Creston Board of  Trade on Tuesday night, which was  in charge, of President Constable.  There was a heavy budget of correspondence dealing with matters that  had been brought up at previous sessions, and on which action had been  taken by those written to.  Pressure   brought   to   bear on   the  water comptroller at   Victoria has resulted in a resumption of   the   Arrow.  Creek irrigation   survey,   which   the  board is assured will be   completed hr  every detail while Engineer  Hodsdon  is  here this  trip.     The request ihat-  all statistical pamphlets issued by the  agriculture   department  should show  Creston as a distinct   district,   rather  than having its identity lost by being  enumerated as belonging to Kootenay  Lake or East" Kootenay,   will be heeded, according   to   Hon.   Mr.  Barrow,  who assures that   henceforth   Ci-eston  Valley will be   constituted a   district  by itself.  The minister of works wrote  informing that the   government   has  acquired the' abandoned   K. \ . right  of way but that it is not the intention  this year toMuake it into a trunk road  to connect up Creston with Idaho-, via  Porthiil. . ,.  '  In reply to C.P.R.   Supt.   Mahax-g's  letter informing that   he has.provided  a portable auto unloading jjlatfopi-ia-for  motor cars at Creston, the   board will  inform   that   the   contraption   is far  from   satisfactory   in   that   it is   too  heavy, requiring ahnost-half a.-dozen  men to set it up for use.  The suggestion will.be offered that he build   a permanent platform say four feet clear ..of  the siding to be  equipped   with.Ai.lift-  over apron,   which   can be   padlocked  when.not in_nse> Mr. Maharg will also  be; fnformed'that the  present practice,  of strewing the lot   opposite the station with poles preyents the keeping up  appearance around the depot and vard  and he will be   requested To   arrange  for a pole loading yard at   some'other  site on the light of way.  "When financesaccumulatesufficieni-  tly the board will purchase a town flag  which will be stored at a convenient  point and will be Hown'on all holidays  and special occasions. The election of  C.

For   the     Reclamation, committee  Chairman   Constable   reported that a  wire had   been   received   from   John  Keen,   M.P.P.,   who   was' in   Ottawa  last week at the   Liberal   convention,  and while at the federal capital he and  Hon. Dr. King, minister of works, had  interviewed the Dominion minister of  the interior as to what Ottawa wasdo-  ing toward getting on   with drainage  activities.   It would   appear ttiat   the  resolution pa**.**c*d at Victoria last session was not sulVlcient  to    induce   the  Dominion officials   to bestir   themselves,   but after  the   conference   with  Messrs. King and Keen assurance was  given that thev   would    at   once take  the matter up with   Washington, and  proceed with   the   finish-up-work thi.*.*  st a son if practie.ib.e.  \Vhili> -if  ti>..    -v..'-*    J;-..--'   --'I*"!*:   *..:.

So the days fled past, and Ruggles,  ���������working hard, had but a single cloud  ���������Upon his fair horizon.    This was due  to    his    learning    that    the    Vienna  branch was almost ready to open its  doors  for trade, while he had as yet  received no omcial directions to hold  himself in readiness for a change of  place.    Hc wrote again to the European   general  .manager,   recalling   his  former   application,     and   received  a  rather  brief   reply,  which     contained  no  more  than   thc  information     that  his     letter   had  been     received     and  would   be   duly   considered.     Still,   it  - was   courteous   in   tone,   and   Ruggles,  of getting shod was always a serious  one to Darthea and her aunt, because,  though     they  bought    shoes  but  seldom,   they  bought   good  ones,  which  cost  upwards     of twenty-five    francs  the pair.       Shoes and    gloves    were  about  the  only  items   of  their wardrobes     which  they     were unable     to  make  for  themselves,  but  gloves  are  not dear in Paris and can bc made to  last  for  a  long  time.     Thc  kid docs  not wear out, and as it stretches and  the seams tear it can be trimmed and  restilchcd.    Clothes can bc made and  hats arc-  easily managed by a person  of     observation     and  natural     taste.  Darthea could walk demurely up the  Champs .   Ely sees,     get     a     passing  glimpse  of a   creation,     which  might  havc cost three hundred francs,  then  go   home  and  concoct   something   of  thc   same   sort  which  looked     much  prettier (on her head) for about five.  But     there  is   really  nothing  very  much   to   do   about   shoes   except   to  buy  them,  and  this   expenditure     on  Darthca's      part,     representing     the  0 equivalent of a week's  food for     the  IpJVTft     ^1 ll 0(P***-*^ j pair of  them, it was a matter to be  v? J.B.     iV^iEt'-Lp'CO i approached with great care and cou-  i sideration. Darthea during her sojourn in Paris had been in the habit \  of buying her shoes at the big department store, "Mcrrie England,"  which was nearly opposite thc branch  store of the Walkeasy Shoe Company  on   the  Boulevard  des   Capucines.  Wherefore, accompanied by Miss  Challand, who was much more insistent than her niece on the question  of fit and finish, and therefore commanded a more painstaking attention,  Darthea set out to buy her pair of  shoes. Thc weather had been stormy  for several days, which rendered the  purchase more peremptory, so they  caught a bus,-descended at the Place  de l'Opera, and walked up thc Boulevard to  "Mcrrie   England."  "I'm sure you'd do much better at  the Walkeasy shop across the street,  my dear," said Miss Challand. "Their  shoes may cost a little more, but you  would get quite thc worth of it in  wear and comfort."  Ruggles   would   havc   felt  like   em-  a  born  optimist, told  himselL-thal  he   bracing ],er could hc havc hcard thjs.  was   sure   to   got   his   promotion   very]      ������������������pOSi---jlv/* Darthea answered, "biU  ���������shortly. i j   ]ultc   those     pug-nosed    American  For  Rugglcs was possessed of that j shoes,   aunty.

Historic Reman landmarks viewed from  the air gave the eye an entirely different aspect of their beauty and  form.

Adelaide,    South    Australia. ��������� On  the seashore of South Australia    lies  unused, and until lately    almost    unknown, a very large quantity of valuable fiber.   It is calculated    that    thc  whole deposit contains 4,500,000 tons  dry weight.   All this  conies from the  growth in the shallow sea waters   of  that   region   of   Posidonia   Australis.  This is not what is usually known as  a seaweed, but is entirely of thc nature of a flowering land plant, except  for ils  habits of growing   submerged  in   sea  water.     Its value  conies  from  the fact that when   its    long,    straw-  shaped  leaves   wither,    they    remain  round the stem as tufts or string-like  lineads.   After ;i time, a dense, m.iltcpl  bed of liber forms on thc sea bottom,  and the whole colony gets higher and  higher in  the  water  as  this  bed  gels  thicker.  In some places the matted beds are  seven feet thick and several square  miles in extent, so that a fine potential industry is foreseen by the South  Australian l io\ ii nineiil.

Hc says that a few drops of a drug  called freezone, applied directly upon  a tender, aching corn, instantly relieves soreness, and soon the entire  corn, root and  all,  lifts right out.  This drug is a sticky ether compound, but dries at once and simply  shrivels up the corn without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tissue.  it is claimed that a quarter of an  ounce of freezone obtained at any  drug store will cost very little, but  is sufficient to remove every hard or  soft corn or callus from one's feet.

But they seldom  recognize the fact that thin blood is  the cause of their indigestion, but  it    is.  ��������� Thin blood is onc of thc most common causes of stomach trouble; it  affects the digestion very quickly.  The glands that furnish the digestive  fluids arc diminished in their activity, the stomach muscles are weakened and there is a loss of nerve force.  In this state of hoalth nothing will  more quickly restore the appetite,  digestion and normal nutrition than  good, rich, red blood.

C. F. Hayks, Editor and Owner'  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, AUG. 16  ������������%&**& Mfoiiui Hay  Editor Review :  Sib.���������After reading in your paper  "Stockmen will control haying," it  looks like they control haying to their  own interest. Those that have large  herds have the privilege to cut hay all  they want, and th'e man that has a  eovv or two has no equal, rights to cut  hay. **;Mostly those who have one cow  is the man with a family to support,  and the cow is kept for the benefit of  the little children. Depriving the man  from hay is robbing the children of  milk, as well as their health. The  small users last winter depended on  getting hay at the Union, and there  was no hay till late in "the spring, and  the nian had to buy hay from the Indians to keep .their stock from starving. It seems to nie that the stockmen could give the small users the  same privileges as themselves, by giving them their hay rights all together,  and let them co-operate in making  hay for their own use. Most any man  could spend a few days haying if he  bnt knew where to haymake when he  wanted it. Fair Play.  $1000 to Building  The matter of financing: the new  main building to house the 1919  and succeeding fall fairs of the  Creston Valley Agricultural Association was materially expedited hy  the gift $1000 from the Creston  Farmers' Institute, which was  authorized at a largely attended  meeting of the Institute at the And  itorium, Saturday night, the gift  being made by a unanimous vote of  all present.  The gathering was presided over  hy the Institute president, W. V.  .Jackson, who briefly explained the  reason for calling the meeting, and  while on his feet also expressed  himself clearly in favor of making  a donation of at least $800. Now  that the trading department of Institute work is being so well taken  care of by the Creston Fruit Growers Unioii iii--. Jackson thought it  was folly -to let the ������1250 the In  stitute had on    hand   remain    idle.  The fall  fair was   something decidedly in the interest of the Whole  oommunity.    Last year it had been  well demonstrated that    the Valley  could pn-t on a worth    while exhibition, nmd last year    had also demonstrated   the    need    of    the    new  building.

It would seem that if any dissatisfaction exists in the arrangement  for 1919 hay harvest it exists largely  with those who in the past have  been able to buy what hay they  needed from the Indians or the local haymakers. For a time it looked as if this source of supply would  be cut off possibly, and with outside hay both scarce'and expensive,  naturally there was some .apprehension about the winter's supply  rf feed.  In this connection the air was.  cleared on a statement from Guy  Constable, the stockbreeders association secretary, who in a review of  the matter stated that since Indian inspector Ditchburn and other  officials had been here since early  last week, and the Si washes needs  in the matter of hay had been very  thoroughly looked into, along with  the hay area available, a division  of the flats had been agreed upon  that gave the whites added areas  to cut on, and in view of this concession arid the generally healthy  appearance of the crop at pi*esent,  it now seemed reasonably certain  that there would be a considerable  tonnage available for the fellow  with one or two cows and also the  r.ineher who preferred to buy rather than put up hay for himself, and  if all possible the association would  put up one, two or three hundred  tons of feed, which wonld be sold  at just a sufficient margin on cost  to recoup the association its oper-  atmg expenses.  Although President Jackson had  a gathering of not less than a hui.-  dred mem hers the meeting was decidedly liarmoniout throughout, the  most gratifying feature, perhaps,  b-'ing the vote of $1000 which  went through without a dissenting  voice or vote, it might be said.   $ 5 00  iUIrtlC'li.SOJSf���������  ���������Cartwright, G..~  r!up.ftTr.,;~u-.

Grand Forks was unable to secure a citizen to take the job of  poundkeeper so the- work has been  thrust open the chief of police by  the council.

CRESTON,    ~\%    fit*  **%-  i of road in that Province.   A Government survey    of    the    Province,   has  established thc fact that there is little  stone  available  for   crushing    to    bc  used as macadam;  suitable  sand and  gravel   deposits   are   few   and  far   removed in   most  cases  from  where   it  would  bc  required in  road   construction.    On the other hand, Saskatchewan    has    now    ovcr 52,000 licensed  automobiles,  and thc number   is    increasing  every week, fully two-thirds  of which are owned by farmers.    The  Provincial  revenue   from  license  fees  totals from $750,000    to    onc million  doUars a year.    The situation in  Saskatchewan  is  proportionately  true  of  the other Western Provinces.  The automobile is no longer a lux-  The Iron Road In  The Wilderness  &. ��������� ry 4J.V1 ������������p-  and i  Canada, and  especially that  greater  and   new   Canada    comprised   -within  the  three   Prairie   Provinces     of     the  West, have   numerous    problems    to  work out in order    to    promote    the  development  of  our great natural  resources,   encourage  immigration  permanent  settlement    on     the    land,  ensure the prosperity and comfort of  the people, and attract visitors   from  all parts of the world.   To solve these  many problems will  require patience,  courage  and  capacity on  the part   of  Governments,  municipalities and people, as well as  large annual  expenditures of money.  It is important, therefore,    that    all  works inaugurated should, as    far    as  possible, bc of a permanent character,  well  planned,   scientifically   constructed, and  their upkeep    and    efficiency  maintained.   In  tins  article   it   is  not  the intention  to deal with more  than  one    of    these    many and  diversified  problems.   Some    people    may    think  thc creation  of good roads is not the  most  pressing  of  Western   problems.  but  few, if any, will deny its importance.  During thc past half century Canada has been busy building railways.  ���������an  enormous and burdensome  task  ury but a necessity, but  its value   to  the  farming  community  of  the West  depends largely on good  roads.    Thc  old-style  dirt  road will    not    suffice.  After a rain they are useless and the  automobile is tied up.'  In winter they  frequently  become  impassable."     Permanent roads would be. available rain  or shine,    while in winter,    with    our  comparatively light fall  of   fine,    dry  snow, the roads generally    would   be i  swept clean by the winds. !  Then there is the saving of time,  gasoline consumption, wear and tear-  which comes with good roads. The  problem of getting to market for supplies and repairs, and from the farm  to market with produce, is essentially  a farmer's problem. In many cases  bis   success  in   solving  it    determines  Example   of   Eastern   Conservatism  as Invaded  by   Occidental Ideas.  In laying thc last tic in its railway  link  connecting  Jerusalem  and  Sue?,  thc   British   Government    admittedly  has, of course, not exhausted the. possibilities  of obtaining speedy passage  over"this  historic  wilderness.     When  an aeroplane undertakes to soar from  Mecca to  the  isthmus,  as  will  inevitably soon be the case, the reckoning  in  days may well be    reduced    to    a  matter of hours;    yet    even the time  now    required ��������� approximately    five  days���������is shorter than was ever hoped  for in the days when   caravans alone  plied thc desert  fastnesses   of   Sinai.  There  is  another  example  of eastern  conservatism  as  invaded by  occidental  ideas���������a land  of  natural  barriers,  difficult to surmount in .the-twentieth  century as in thc time of Moses, has  awaited the latter-day Aryan and his  tamed  steed,  Steam,   before   yielding  to  the  demands  of  progress.  yiSjIS.l.saeiessieSaiasBisafliaS-jBssSBefS'.ip^  tr     i     m aa  1      f* **m4r ^)*iA   &GS, ������I0 _      ,Sx-J  BABY'S GREAT DANGER  DURING HOT WEATHER  he  -.mount of his year's    profits.

A cash payment on account to  be made to the farmer at the time  he sells his wheat.  3. Thc wheat crop of Canada to  be sold by the board at the prevailing  world prices, and the surplus proceeds, after expenses are deducted,  to be distributed to the original sellers of the wheat in proportion to  grade and quantity.  4. No speculation on exchanges of  profiteering by handlers of the wheat  crop of 1919 to thc disadvantage of  either producer or consumer.  5.

A complete system of record, under the provisions of the Canada  Grain act and the regulations made  thereunder will be kept which will  enable the board to determine with  accuracy and pay with certainty the  exact proportion of thc surplus due  to each original seller. The board will  sell wheat to thc millers and sell the  flour milled therefrom for export  while for the domestic consumption  thc sales will be made as usual and  the price will be restricted to a fixed  maximum of reasonable profit, allowing within that maximum competition  among  thc  millers  themselves.  The. grain exchanges will not give  facilities for thc buying and selling  of futures in wheat during the crop  season of 1919. The board will utilize, so far as available and necessary  .the existing facilities for the purchase, transport and handling of  wheat with a view- to distributing  as little as possible the existing and  ultimate methods of trade.  Thc government has been actuated  in its decision by thc desire to secure  for thc Canadian farmer the best  possible world price for his product  and at the same time, to ensure to  the home consumer that his flour  shall not cost more than is necessary  Considerable Damage Done to Buildings and Wire  Service by  Wind.

Washington. ��������� Thc peace treaty  with Germany was discussed by President Wilson with four more Republican senators, all of them understood to be unwilling to accept the  League of Nations in its present  form.  .Both the senate and thc committee  had recessed over today .and many  senators went over for the first time,  the official text of thc treaty with  France, submitted for ratification by  President Wilson. Although most of  them reserved judgment, it became  apparent that the treaty's ratification  would be bitterly contested.  Two objections about which debate  is expected to centre are that the  treaty departs from the tradition of  no entangling alliances, and that it  violates the constitutional provision  that congress alone can declare w-ar.  Those who base their opposition on1  thc latter ground declare that by  promise to go to the. aid of France  immediately in case of an tmprovok-  ed attack on her from Germany, all  future congresses wouid be deprived  of their power to decide for war or  peace whenever the treaty terms  were invoked.  Paris. ��������� It is expected-in French  circles that the discussion of the Ger-  jmait peace treaty will open August  10 in the chamber of deputies and  will continue for three or four days.  There will then be a three or four-  day discussion  in  thc senate.  As Japan is supposed to have a  copy of the treaty by this time, and  the emperofs ratification is expected  at an early date, French officials are  of the opinion that the treaty will  become effective when the l-Tench  ratify it, about August 20. England  has already ratified thc treaty, and  thc signatures of only three great  powers are necessary to make it  effective.

An additional cash payment by way  of advance will be made by the board  to the farmers for each bushel sold,  based on the price of No. 1 northern  at Fort William. At thc conclusion  of the season's sales, after the deduction of necessary expenses, the  total excess realized ovcr and above  the first payment made to the farmers will be divided among the orig-  oncc a substantial cash price for his  wheat, and ultimately the fullest  possible rcttirn of the balance of  price realized by thc season's sales.  Thc establishment of this board  does not interfere with the work of  the board of grain supervisors in  respect to that portion of the crop  of 1918 delivered by August 15. Their  powers and functions arc continued  in full force so far as that crop is  concerned. The new board will  have sole authority to deal with the  crop of 1919. and with that portion  of hc crop of 1918, which will bc undelivered by August 15.

Thc address conferring the freedom of the city described General  Foch as a heroic general, a model  for future generations of soldiers,  and paid tribute to his brilliant part  in the war, his stern sense of duty,  patriotism and supreme knowledge  of the science of war.  Acknowledging the freedom of thc  city and the. sword of honor, Marshal  Foch, speaking in French, paid a  great tribute to' thc valor of the  British soldiers," the skill of thc British generals, especially General Haig,  and also thc wonderful work of the  industrial classes of Britain in providing thc allies with abundant guns  and munitions.  Dealing with thc great German offensive of 1918, he remarked that thc  British armies, though very exhausted, fought as brilliant a rearguard  action as had ever been fought.  (Cheers.)

Hope That the Way May Be  Made  Pleasant for Them.  Sofia, Bulgaria. ��������� An atmosphere  of uneasiness and uncertainty is discernible here with regard to the outcome of the mission in Paris of the  Bulgarian peace delegates. Bulgaria's  claims to the Dobrudja and her aspirations as to Macedonia arc still  to the fore in discussion of thc peace  terms, and despite the hints of  possible territorial losses, which have  caused concern and brought out  some bitter comment, there appears  to be a general hope that justice, as  it is viewed here, will be done Bulgaria in this respect, and that the  questions at issue will be determined independently of her participation in thc war on the* side opposed  to the allies.  Prominent spokesmen among thc  Bulgarians having given expression  of strong desires to see peace brought  about through the visit of thc mission to Paris, together with the hope,  as one of them said, that the terms  would bc "something that wc can  swallow." In these expressions both  Great Britain and thc United States  arc alluded to as friendly, but thc  belief in this friendship is varied with  Ice** certainty than previously. Utterances indicating dislike of tlie  French arc freely heard in the. capital,  which may bc explained as due lo the  presence, of French colonial troops  there.

Thc State troops established a bar-  r*:d zone about three miles square,  embracing most of the colored residential district on the southsidc.

The district exte.n'Ic-'i  roughly from 122nd Street to 55th  Street, north and, south, and from  Michigan boulevard to Wen worth,  avenue, east and west. This happened  when riots in the colored district itself had somewhat subsided, when  there was an alarm spread of disturbances outside. New York Central  railroad officials reported all their  trains  being fired  oh.  Adjutant General Dickson, after an  early evening trip through tlie threatened district, declared the situation  was ominous, and his view was shared by the mayor's secretary, who accompanied him.

And in order to show still more tangible concern in the new main building the Institute members also deeid  ed to hold an afternoon fete, the entire proceeds of which will be applied  to the binding fund. Tha event will  most likely be an afternoon and evening affair, similar to those in vogue  for Bed Cross benefit up till this year,  with all the features and side lines of  making money. The date was not decided upon, but it will be before the  end os the month, and the committee  on refreshments in connection with it  was named to include Mesdames G.  Cartwright, Lidgate, Craigie and  Hayes.  During proceedings those present  put the finishing touches on the third  quilt for the new Nelson hospital, and  also manufactured 30 blocks to go into the fourth of these.
