A couple of water experts have been  busy at the Goat River canyon the  fore part of the week, making quite a  thorough survey of the water flow  aud general lay^rtf the river in that  neighborhood. They are presumed to  represent a syndicate with ample  backing to utilizes tlie water for irrigation   as  well   as   electrice   energy.  Thursday morning of last week was  the coldest of the year, the mercury  getting down to 14 below zero, With  no snow on the ground much anxiety  was felt as to how many more touches  of the sort some of the water mains  would stand without'freezing.

Logging operations are being carried  on at the river, just below Fred Brow-  ell's. Two fonr-hore teams are at work.  Much annoyance is caused by the  water situation here.

The funeral takes  place this (Thursday) afternoon to  Creston cemetry. Deceased, who was  25 years of age was.a son of Mrs. A. L.  Matthews, new resident at Birchbank,  and who. with Mr. Matthews was  here for the furif-ral. "Hh had; been a  resident at Alice Siding for the last  eight years, coming from Calgary  with his mother to take up ranching  there. "Jacky," as he was familiarly  known, was of a genial^and obliging  disposition, and popular with bis employers as well as all who knew him.  His demise is keenly regretted by all.  t^fHIPH  On Saturday evening last the residents of Lister and thpir several  friends enjoyed a'dance held in the  schoolhouse, to splendid music kindly  supplied by Mrs. Lister, Mrs! Crandall  and Mr. Dobbin, all three behog great  musicians so that excellent time was  kept for all the pleasing variety of  dances induiged in. Dancing was  kept up to the early hours and was  thoroughly enjoyed by all present.  A word of thanks is due to the ladies  of the committee in charge of the entertainment for their kindness in  serving light refreshments whieh were  greatly appreciated.  A Sunday-school 'has beers started  here, the children turning out in large  numbers, another pleasing fact is that  there is no scarcity of teachers, as  quite a number of the residents haye  yolunteered their services.  Church service was held here on  Sunday, the 18th December, for the  first time since we have had a hall  suitable for that purpose, and the opportunity was taken advantage of by  quite a number, a pleasing fact being  that the men were in the majority.  The service was conducted by Rev.  Mr. Hamilton, Methodist minister of  this district, who gave an able and  helpful address. After the Service a  permanent committee was appointed  to look after the future services, etc.  Mrs. .Tory- Mrs. Sinclair, Mr. Clark,  Mr. Millington and Mr. Soane agreeing  to act. and with such a strong committee working together it will be only  a matter of time before we have a  good church building in which to  hold  regular services.

Crcrar, former minister of agriculture and prospective leader of the new  farmers' party, recently delivered at  s. number of places in the West have  a greater value and importance at  this particular time than usually attaches to speeches from the political  platform, and they are fully deserving of the attention which has been  devoted to them, not only by the  press, but the public generally.  The avowed object of this series  of. addresses by Mr. Crerar was to i  outline to the people of thc cities of  ihe West thc main principles of the  New National Policy promulgated by  the Canadian Council of Agriculture,  the policies in support of which the  farmers are uniting irrespective of  former party affiliations and to invite the support of all classes, in city  as well as country, who believe in  the principles and policies enunciated  in that Platform.  It is altogether probable that Mr.  Crerar's series of meetings was also  prompted by the fact that in the  Cochrane by-election in Alberta Mr.  Wood, the U.F.A.  ince, took the ground that the farmers' political movement was a distinctly "class" movement, and that  he advocated other groups and classes organizing along similar "class"  lines. This is in direct opposition to  the policy of the Canadian Council of  Agriculture and the leaders of the  farmers' movement in Saskatchewan  and Manitoba. The Grain Growers'  Guide made haste to repudiate the  views advocated by Mr. Wood, and  Mr. Crerar in all his speeches, was at  great pains to impress upon his hearers the fact that the promoters of thc  New National Policy, so far from encouraging a "class" movement, were  openly and strongly opposed to such  n course.  Apart, however, from their primary object in explaining the New National Policy to the people of urban  centres throughout the West, the  ���������peeches of Mr. Crcrar served a truly  national   service  in  that   hc  gave  tit-  present world unrest    and upheaval  for people in all walks of life to break  away from the true and tried methods I  and leaders of the past and turn to  something new.    Changed conditions  from what have prevailed in the past  are admittedly necessary.    This is recognized on all sides, but the danger  j lies  in  the  apparent willingness     of  jmany people    to thoughtlessly seize  - upon  anything  new,  arm  o������  running  As Mr.  Crerar declar-  f his speech,  this is a time above all others for all  people   to  be   reasonable,   and  to  be  guided by reason and not impulse.  The danger against which Mr.  Crerar warns peopie to be on. guard  probably has found its greatest and  most tragic expression in the ranks  of organized labor, where large  croU"12 of men showed a wil-  lingness to desert their former leaders, and their great international  craft unions, and follow ultra-socialistic, even anarchistic, leaders and  their will-o'-the-wisp nostrum of the  One Big Union. Here in the West  organized labor came very close to  destroying itself. It largely alienated  the support of all reasonable men and  women, and has created a division in  its own ranks which it will take a  long time to overcome.  If Canada is tc grow great and  prosper there must be neither distinctly "class" nor "sectional" groupings in this Dominion. "Classes" and  "groups" as such may very properly  carry on educational propaganda with  a view to convincing the people as a  whole that they are right, and, when  they succeed in so convincing them,  their views will find concrete expres  sion in.the laws of the land. But the  attempt to pass "class" legislation can  only end in disaster, hinder the development and prosperity of the Dominion, and lead to turmoil, trouble and  possibly open strife.  The crying need of Canada .is  greater unity among all classes, races,  creeds and sections���������not further riv-  ision into "groups." Out of the common sacrifices of the Great War there  should develop a broad and strong  Canadian national spirit. Patriotic  Canadians everywhere should set  their faces sternly against the creation ox further class distinctions, and  j Prize Shorthorn  1  an English chemist began to manufacture BEECHAM'S PILLS.

If Canadian wheat is  permitted by the Dominion Government to enter the United States by  the carload, it is hardly to be expected that the high prices now prevailing for hard spring wheat wiii continue, but undoubtedly the Canadian  wheat board will be abie to realize  a substantial profit on every bushel  sold on thc United States market.

This demand,  in  the opinion of  Mr.  Stewart,   was  very   limited,  and  any  large quantity of this grade of wheat  appearing on the markets would have  the    effect    of immediately    sending  prices downward, perhaps to the level  of the United States government's  guarantee of   $2.26.  At the present time the wheat situation is obscure. The opinion generally held is that the wheat board is  behind with its European contracts,  and that for the present. no wheat  will be available for sale in thc United States.  While the board is bound to sell  the wheat that they have taken from  the    Canadian    farmers    where    the  highest prices can be obtained, the,to adviccg received hcre by Superin-  contracts already entered into with;tcndcnt Caball> of thc Chihuahua di_  European   countries  will   have  to  be,^.^  q������    Ujc National    raihvays in  pro{ectcd* Mexico.

In this new ruling  Creston Vaiiey has little to lose  and very much to gain. Nothing  to lose in that during the past year  owners, desirous of selling could  readily have(disposed of their holdings   to   prairie   buyers   at   prices  fully   as  attractive as  the soldier  settlement board   offers, while  our  gain is in the  direction of having  more of our unimproved areas taken  up aud developed.    And this, after  all, has  some  advantages  for the  newcomer in that he does not inherit other people's mistakes; with  the  district proven   out as  to the  best varieties to plant; with a market well-defined as to the most profitable sorts^to x?roducs; aud a resident  horticulturist always  on the  job to  supervise operations gener  ally, the man genuinely anxious to  become a profitable producer could  hardly be beeter off.    Incidentally  this new line of action should give  a  considerable   boost   to the  land  settlement  plan   of the   provincial  land^settlement   board   at  Lister.  Assurdly the   scheme   as  planned  and is being worked out under the  direct^supervision of Col. Lister at  the area here, gives the soldier farmer the right start in an ideal section of B.C. on excellent land, at a  cost and under such practical direction that the right sort of man can  jt he Nets) terry  T> ..-��������� -S-.. t .

Twiggs, B.S.A.  to   assume  the  duties  of  resident  agriculturist and field horticulturist  for the Creston Vaiiey is by far the  most    important   appointment   as  effecting these parts that the present government has made.    While  Mr. Twiggs   comes  as   an   entire  stranger   THE REVIEW   believes it  voices the opinion of most of those  interested   in    stating   that  every  confidence   prevails   that  the  best  possible man to be had has been selected.    Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister  of agriculture, is   undoubtedly  ��������� seized   of   the   importance  of   this  section both from the agricultural  as   well   as   the   fruit    producing  standpoints, and   despite  considerable  pressure has postponed naming a man for this district until the  right man   came  along.    That he  has  seen  fit to name   Mr. Twiggs  convinces   that he will   prove   the  right man in the right place.    With  the  development  at Lister, which  will be manifest this spring and for  the next two or. three seasons, it is  essential   that   someone who  combines a working knowledge of both  agriculture   And    fruit   should    be  placed here, but just how long this  dual purpose advisor will suffice is  another queston.    In the past there  lias been some agitation for the establishing of a small sized  experimental farm here, and were funds  available   uddouhtedly    the   enterprise   would (ill ji   useful   purpose.  At this juncture, however, the field  man   is   all    er,f,entia.l    and   if   Mr.  Twiggs displays the ability we have  f*vf������i-y l-evi^on to Iv-lifve lie- is possessed of he> should find his work con  genial, and the community measurably profit thereby.  as becoming under-sized for the  traffic offering, the proposed new  ferry has the advantage of being  power-driven, which should not  only provide quicker transportation  but will also enable the ferry to be  kept in operation later in the season;  in fact it should then be possible to  have it running every working day  in the year except in the occasional  severe winters���������and even then it  should be possible to keep the channel open until the bridge has form-  edjsufficiently to permit of vehicular  traffic. The installation of the  new ferry will undoubtedly settle  the removal question finally. Aud  that removal is seriously contemplated is evidenced iu the fact that  needed improvements to the ferry  approa6hes have been postponed���������  apparently pending the investigation of the new site. If our  friends at West Creston are genuinely in earnest on the ferry removal question they should be getting  busy immediately. Undoubtedly  the works department intends to  give the removal matter practical  cor sideration, but no harm can  come of reminding them that hope  deferred too long is bad for all  parties concerned.

The main business feature was the discussion on the matter  of sewing hot drinks at the public  school.   This scheme is working at the  high school, tne girl students taking  charge, but at the public school the  matter of help as we'll as the providing of quarters in which all the students taking their lunch can gather ������t  noon to be seryed with hot fluids, has  militated against starting the serving  of hot drinks.    The matter was turned  over to the directors with full power  to incurr reasonable expense  to get  the scheme working.   Two more quilts  were turned in finished at this meeting, making the year's total of quilts  built a matter of half a dozen of them.  One of these was raffled at the dance  at the Peekin that night and netted  the   institute    treasury   S12.40.    Announcement was made at this session  that the annual meeting will be held  on January 9th, and all were reminded that according to constitution only  those members whose dues are paid  for 1920 will be allowea-a yote at the  election of officers.    The musical features were piane) solos  by Medames  Crompton auu Garland, violin selections by Mrs. Lister, while Miss^Collin-  son and Mrs. D. S. MacKenzie favored  with, local selections.   The only literary number was by Miss Muriel Knott  who gayp  a 'well-chosen  selection  in  pleasing - fashion.   The tea hostesses  were     Mesdames    Mallandaine     and  Speers, and this feature enlarged the  institute treasury a matter of $4.20.  Mrx.tArxnr  y,txx.7j v,  are   busy  putting in a supply.

This kind of rough  talk will be heard less here in town if  people troubled with corns will follow  the simple advice of this Cincinnati  authority ...who claims that a few drops  of a drug called freezone when applied  to a tender, aching corn stops soreness at once, and soon the corn dries  up and lifts right out without pain.  He says freezone is an ether compound which dries immediately and  never inflames or even^ irritates the  surrounding tissue or skin. A quarter  of an ounce of freezone will cost very  little at any drug store, but is sufficient to remove every hard or s:oft  corn or callus from one's feet.
