CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1920  No. 14  Will Irrigate 210  Acres at Erickson  Labor supply and weather permitting, and unfoi-seen contingencies not  having to be coped with, at least 160  acres of-improved ranch property in  thp Erickspn section will be operating  under irrigation by midsummer or  thereabouts.  The local irrigation project has been  developing since last season and is  known as the Erickson Water Ufers'  Community. Those making up the  association are the well-known ranches of R. J. Long, Elvin and Geo, Cartwright, Frank and Roy Staples, Major  Mallandaine, Fraser & Son, F; Putnam, M. R, Palmer, Palmer brothers,  W. W. Hall and H. A. McKowrn.  In these properties is included an  area aggregating about 210 acres, of  which 160 are under cultivation; 100  acres taken up to orchard and the re-  mainin"' 60 acres readily -available for  small fruit production if desired.  The supply will be had from Sullivan  Creek, with the water diverted at a  point about half a mile due east of  Goat River Canyon. Orders were  placed some time ago for the wooden  pipe which will be used and this provides for an 8 inch,main just oyer 8000  feet. The Goat River will be crossed  at the canyon where a flume will be  erected, the surveyor recommending  that at this point the pipe line -be en-  8 In connection with this project .a  gratifying feature to the yenture is  that the Water User's Community  were successful in getting the regulation financial assistance from the provincial government. For some time  back irrigation has been talced of for  the "Valley and now that the lands department has become a loaning partner in the initial preject its seemingly  assured success "will make it much  easier to procure government assistance for future projects of the sort.

The defeat, however, has  not discouraged them anil they are  going back this Sunday for another  try at their luck.

A canvass for funds for a king's  birthday celebration had been  made with ���������splendid success, and it  was decided to'-continue the effort  and the money be used for the  Citizens' Day celebration.  Friday, June 25, has been set for  the 1920 big day, and the commitee  is meeting to-night to draw up a  programme of events, which will  include a big list of races and contests for the children as well as the  adults, a line of Indian sports,  baseball and football matches, besides several novelty features.  The plan is to have something  moving contincusly from at least  2 to 5 p.m., while in the evening  Manager Rodgers will put on a  special show of pictures at the  Peekin, and if the crowd warrants  Figures as to the cost of installing  the system vary, but so far as we can  learn it is not expected the cost will  be much higher than $125 an acre.  The work, we understand, will be  done by day labor with a ditching  machine.   A covet- of two feet is being  n**"*D"*"!2'*C"3,,.,   ������' --%.- c3n$<?:$*s-i.v&v-4\Ptl'ir.-iyivjA.  over whlc% ^tie pipe lih^ in  dicates that the excavating will not be  costly insofar as rock  work goes, as  there is less than a 200 foot stretch  where stone is likely to be troublesome in connection with construction.  Engineer   McCullough   of   Nelson,  who has made an exhaustive report  on the whole project, states that there  will be ample water for irrigating the  whole area even in the dry.est of seasons, while  in  the   average   year   of  rainfall   there   will  be wet goods in  abundance, all of which is most satisfactory in that provision can be made  for allowing other property owners in  that   section   to   take   advantage   of  irrigation should they desire to do ao.  While  there are those  doubtful of  the wisdom of any such investment in  irrigation  in  the Valley, and   others  who would seem to be over enthusiastic in the matter of increased production  in   consequence of an  abundant  water supply, those who have followed irrigation effort are convinced that  the venture will readily*pay for itself  in a section like Erickson.     The availability of the moisture will most certainly   make   Ericksrn   a   factor   in  strawberry production if the ranchers  wish to get back into this small fruit  ���������and not only in quantity but also in  the   quality of  tbe fruit.    The  raspberry output should also show un increase and with an even more decided  improvement   in   quality.     While* it  may not be generally conceded locally,  yet wo are informed it is none the less  a fact that in tho normal season the  Valley   raspberry   runs   considerably  more heavily to seeds than is the case  witVi the irrigated fruit of this class.  And tho same thing will apply to the  blackberry.  In tree fruits the authorities are  quite agreed that this regular supply  of water will giye us plums that will  invariably size up ho that they can be  packed, something that seldom happens at present, while there would  seem little room for doubt that tho  well regulated water supply will help  e!onsid({i|iibly in giving size to tho  cherries. As to apples opinion is  pretty general Unit the properly irrigated trees will product' a more uniformly sized fruit of better keeping  'quality than apples Irom trees that  ure subject to dry periodh followed by  wet spells which product*; an unhealthy  growth thaL delay normal-period  maturity.  While it would seem that every  vegetable crop should benelit by the  steady   moisture  supply, irrigation   is  I'XpceU'-l   l,e>   pie'Ve  i-pocially   lielielte'lal  to tomato culture-, iu that it will eliminate point rot which alwavs manifest  itself iu thy season**, an well as expediting ripening which is frequently held  up in dry weather pending the arrival  eif rain   tn iunii-.Miriile  maturity.

Telephone Users, Attention  Editor, Review:  Sib,���������Noticing an article in your  issue of May 28th on the telephone  trouble, I was startled by the reumrks  of O, J. Wigen. Does this gentleman  not know that the telephone or lines  are not immune from trouble, especially in a bush country. If they are  why do companies keep permanent  linemen ?  I would not say there is not cause  for complaint, but why not direct it to  the proper quarter and not make me  the goat. In reference to myself I  may say that I am employed as casual  labor, oy the uour auu not by the day,  week or month, and do as I am told,  not as I would, and I challenge you,  sir, to test my ability either in theory  or practice; a trade csm only be learned by the two combined, and not by  reading. If I am not competent to  hold the position of temporary lineman the management haye their remedy; this is not for you to decide.  I would not like to s-nggest that Mr.  vv igen wrote without sense or reason  by hearing so prolonged, sloven, selfish  and haughty indifference on his phone  from myself, therefore I take exception  to his statement, which is a fabrication.  I would say that Mr. Wigen (since  he does not know me) should judge by  his own personal experience and not  go by mere heresay.  While I am not defending the management, a more efficient seryice could  be maintained by the hearty co-operation of the public with the company  especially .iia>--the "^w*g^fc-'-p4^-y':.lfeie-!^  and not take down the receivers to  other subscribers' calls as this tends to  poor service.  In conclusion I might say that I  have held positions superior to a lineman's duties without complaint, and  coultl do so again should the occasion  ai-ise, J. "\ aness.  Tomato planting will be in full  swing this week. Monday witnessed  the passing of the full moon���������the unfailing sign that frost danger is past.  Some of those Who set plants out  early are repented to haye lost most  them.  Henry Hamilton was*** a Kitchener  visitor between the trains on Saturday.  Photographer Montgomery of Creston was in this section early in the  week, taking orchard views for board  of trade use in the next pamphlet they  issue.  Another omcial visitor this week  was horticulturist Twigg, who was  looking over some of the. orchards  that are threatened with trouble due  to the appearance of the bud moth.  Jos. Stinson has successfully demolished the residence tm the It. B.  Staples ranch, and is removing the  material to Mr. Stinson recently acquired ranch  near Get). Lead beater's,  Messrs. Handley and Kelsey are the  first citizens to try the 1020 fishing,  bnt after a couple of Sunday attempts  have given it up for the present.  Pain ti up operations are noted in the  Erickson district this year. At present the residence on the Downs'ranch  is being repainted, while at the Lewis  ranch H. Brownrigg has dolled up the  barn and packing shed in a C.P.ll.  section house shade tif rot..  Every detail in connection with the  Water Users Community has now  b.-en signed, sealed and delivered and  construction work will cnmmcncc  r'ghl. away. It will be by day labor,  with a ditching machine being used  on excavating the pipe line.  Subscribers are asked not  to allow non-subscribers to use  their phone. This applies to  stores, etc., as well as residences.  CRESTON LIGHT, POWER  & TELEPHONE Co., Ltd.

Gertie Jones, known to the craft as  "The Chatterbox," had got herself  hired in the home of Mrs. Harper just  to lift a diamond necklace, valued at  $40,000. Strange, very strange, that  Mrs. Harper should suddenly change  her mind about wearing the necklace  to a diince, and return to place it iu  the safe.  Then she tried to open the safe by  listening to the clicking of the tumbles  in the lock.  But Gertie vvjvs too fumbled fingered  and the safe remained safe. Seeing  her technique wjis woeful she telephoned the police telling them of her  interupting burglar at work.  Just as she has hung up the receiver; Jimmy Hartigjin steps jauntily  through the window.

Creston Valley  Allotted $53,500  The first reliable information as to  the activities of the public works department at this end of the Kaslo constituency was given out the latter  pjirt of the week when the Creston  Valley wjis fayored with the regular  visit of inspection by Hon. John Keen,  M.P.P. for Kaslo riding. Mr. Keen's  call was a busy one, spending most of  his time on motor trips to the several  points where works are under w-ay,  and to the points where new work is  to be undertaken,  If the work on the Goat River  Crossing road diversion, which has  just been nicely completed, is including as part of tne 1920-1921 appropriation the statement given the Review  provides for an expenditure of yarious  sorts of $60,500, and were the above-  mentioned work eliminated from the  calcuala.tion the current yesir estimates provide for an outlay in the territory from Kuskanook to Goatfell of  over $53,000.  The largest single item . is one of  $21,000- some of which will be spent on  roads and works improvements at  Leister, with the more considerable  part being used on permanent road  building, for which the complete  operating outfit came to hand on  Saturday. Mr. Keen stated that the  decision as to just where the good  roads operations would be undertaken  was entirely in the hands of Engineer  Ramsay, .whose instructions were to  spend the money on the most used  stretch of highway in the "Valley.  Seeing that Lister had been grouped  in the appropriation Mr. Keen felt cei-  tain the money is to be spent on highway construction that will facilitate getting in and out of Lister.  $15,000 has been set aside to take  of the construction of the new road  from Sirdar to Kuskanook, for which  tenders will be called for this month.  The federal government is asking for  bids for erection of a floating wharf  at Kuskanook, and the intention is to  have theprovinci.il road completed as  soon as the wharf is available.  ~:'':*$1G,(^"^^ the  new ferry on the. 'Kootenay River.  The' depsirtment's plan in this case is  to bring the ferry now in operation at  Nelson to this point, and put in a  brand new one ;it Nelson. The scow  that is being brought here is at least  50 per cent, bigger than the one now  in use, and is power operated. With  its installation and the rebuilding of  the approaches on either side it is confidently expected all ferry troubles  will be at an end before the snow flies  this year. The matter of location will  be thoroughly inyestigated and the  new ferry put in at the most advantageous site.  $7500 has been allocated for geueral  repairs to roads jind bridges, roads  being favored to the extent of $4000.  with $3500 for bridges. In bridges, of  course, is not included anything for  the high leyel bridge which'is nearing  completion. It wjis provided for in  last year's vote, though due to the  flood crippling operations and other  minor troubles it is likely the cost of  the new bridge will be" higher than  originally estimated.  Some figures that will prove interesting and which at the same time go  to show how effetually Mr. Keen looks  after his constituent's interests in  this regjird are indicated in the appropriations t>f the past three years,  which are as follows: Vote for 1018-  1011) was $7012. Por 1010 1020 the increase was to $35,58-1, while for 1020-  1021 the net vote is $53,500, Mr. Keen,  too, assured that for next year he is  confident of maintaining the excellent  yearly inei eased appropriations that,  have been iu evidence in the past.  He left here on Thursday to make  the trip into the extensive territory  included in his riding north of4������he  town of Kaslo. but will revisit Crestoii  Valley from time to time this season  to keep in touch with the expenditure  of this year's appropriation for these  parts.

Although it is yet early to hazard  a guess as to the extent of thc acreage to be seeded to wheat in Western  Canada this year, it is probably quite  safe to assume that the preliminary  government estimates of a considerable decrease in acreage arc correst.  The-late season has prevented much  spring plowing, which will result in  a decreased wheat acreage, but reports indicate that the seed is going  into the ground "jvell supplied with  moisture and under satisfactory conditions, which only requires suitable  weather to yield a bountiful crop. At  the same time a large decrease in the  wheat crop of the United States is  anticipated this year, there having  been a heavy falling off in the winter  wheat crop.  One result in the West will undoubtedly be a substantial increase in  the acreage sown to oats and other  coarse grains. This will have a beneficial effect, as the past few years have  revealed a lamentable shortage of feed  certificates   would  prove  of  real, and  grains which has had an adverse effect  :&MmmymmNmm.

People who have followed the operations  of thc Board were confident that these  substantial value, but they hardly expected a forty-cent per bushel value.  This sum, added to the initial payment on thc basis of $2.15 for No. I  Northern at Fort William, brings the  Canadian fixed price well above the  guaranteed minimum price in the U.  S., and it is believed by many that  in the final out-turn the average price  received b3r Canadian farmers will be  equal to the average received by the  United States farmers.  The announcement means that  when, final sctllcmcnt is made with  thc farmers for thcir 1919 wheat crop  a distribution of something like $75,-  000,000 will take place. The three  prairie provinces will, of course, receive the bulk of this large sum. It  will mean mvich to our farmers, will  give an added impetus to production  throughout the West, and provides a  strong argument for a continuance of  thc policy of national marketing of  wheat, at least so long as thc European importing countries maintain national buying and selling.

K.C.B., D.S.O., principal and  vice-chancellor of McGill university  In offering Sir Arthur Currie the  -principalship of McGill, the governors were influenced by the conviction  that the university needs at the present time, above all other things, a  I principal with exceptional powers of  ! organization anc*. administration s.ni  endowed with a tried capacity for inspiration and leadership. The sustained brilliancy of Sir Arthur Cur-  rie's record in the great war will always throw an added lustre upon the  most glorious annals of our country.  His achievement as general commander of thc Canadian army won  him a reputation unsurpassed, if not  unrivalled, by that of any general in  the British forces.

His war despatches were notable for  their clearness and descriptive excellence, while his messages to the Canadian army were characterized by -"*>  loftiness of tone and a noble simplicity of utterance which attracted the  admiration of all English-speaking  peoples. Thc qualities which made  him au incomparable organiser and a  leader at the front fit him preeminently for the headship of a great Canadian  university.

CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JUNE  4  A New Road Policy  Now that the municipality question is again indirectly before  the residents���������in that committees  of the United Farmers and Board  of Trade are investigating the  matter���������it will be in order to  point out that some new legislation as to highways which was put  through at the session of tlie legislature just closed would make  it look as if local self-government  will from now on be a much better investment than the present  government handled system.  Under the new order of things  the provincial authorities stand  prepared to extend generous aid  in making and maintaining good  roads in organized districts,, and  for the purpose have established  road classifications on the following lines: Primary, secondary  and local, and ha*ve very definitely defined the extent and upon  what terms their assistance will  be extended. Cost of construction and maintenance of primary  and secondary highways have  been apportioned as follows:  Primary, 75 per cent by the  Shingles For Sale  10,000 No. 1 at ������7.50 per M.  100,000 No. 3 at ������3.50 per M.  f.o.b.

WYNNDEL MERCANTILE  CO., Wynndel, B.C.  department and 25 per cent by  the municipalities; secondary,  equal share in construction cost  and, as to maintenance, 40 per  cent, by the department and 60  per cent, by the municipality.  In the case of local highways  the entire cost of construction  and maintenance shall be borne  by the municipality. In the case  of secondary roads running  through municipalities of less  than one thousand population  the department may contribute  as high as 75 per cent, for construction and maintenance. Con  trol of the construction and  maintenance of the primary-  highways will be in the hands  of the department, of secondary in the municipalities.  Fifteen days notice may be  given by the department to a  municipality that a secondary  highway is not kept in proper  condition, and if it is not put  into proper repair the department may step in and charge  the cost thereof to the municipality.  Assuming that under municipal  government tlie present tax rate  of one per cent is adhered to, and  added to whieh would be the provincial grants as outlined above,  with local supervision as to where  and how and by whom the greater  part of the work would be done,  any increased expenditure the  proposed organized area might  have to assume in the matter of  schools under municipal control  would be amply recouped in the  more generous terms on transportation facilities.  In April Trail had fifteen births, 4  weddings arid 6 deaths. In the reinforcements the girls had it by a margin of ten to five.  The feature of building activity at  Kaslo this year is on the hill where  owners are putting cement foundations under their residences.  At their first concert and dance to  raise funds to pay for the new $500  piano, Cranbrook high school scholars had a gross intake of $200.  The Free Press learns that at least  a dozen Fernie citizens will make the  trip to the Old Country this summer.  About 'Qleven of them are married  ladies.  Fernie had at least half a hundred  applicants for the position of city police, which  has  been awarded   S.   O.  Leawson of Macleod, Alta., at a stipend  of $200 a month.  Trail Methodist church now boasts  a membership of seventy-eight���������a gain  of seven over the year previous. From  all   sources   the   congregation   came  through with $2700.  Five Kaslo citizens were among  the forty candidates who rode the  goat at the big Knights of Columbus  initiation ceremony at Rossland a  couple of weeks ago.  The books just closed for the Methodist church at Revelstoke show the  past twelve months to have been thc  biggest .revenue producers in the history of the congregation.  Rev. H. Panabaker, Methodist pastor at Kimberley, who has resigned  to go back to Ontai-io, was presented  with a club bag by his congregation  before leaving on the trip east. -  The Bank of Hamilton is spending  $30,000 on a new building at Penticton, while -the Bank of Montreal is  also planning to spend $20,000 on a  new building before the end of the  year.

E. D. Barrow, minister of  agriculture, who is back in Victoria  today after a tour of inspection in the  interior.  One hundred^ returned men -with  their families, many of them already  living in their own houses on their  own allotments, are busy deyeloping  the area so that they will be in a position to take advantage of all the profits that will be offering as soon as  they are producing.  Strawberries, Hon-Mr. Barrow explained, picked today, and shipped  from the Creston station at noon will  be on the market early tomorrow  morning in Calgary and Lethbridge.  This proximity of the famous Creston  fruit area to the prairie markets giyes  the district an advantage oyer all  other fruit producing areas of the  West.  Direction at the settlement, Hon.  Mr. Barrow found, is also another reason for its success. Captain Kowberry  is now superintendent at Creston.  Hon. Mr. Barrow declared he found  Captahi Kowberry to be a practical  man who is making the most of the  Creston possibilities and the determination of the men themselves to succeed.  JUandon which clearing \voi*k was  started last summer is now being  plowed. It will not be sown in crop  this year, but is being prepared for  the planting of'fruit-trees. The old  settlement at Creston, which adjoins  the soldier colony, is one of the most  prosperous fruit districts in British  Columbia.  besides which the government has'  promised to help toward the keep of a  public health nurse, whereas we have  no guarantee that they will give anything toward the upkeep of a hospital  which might be empty for a great part  of fehe year.  "We are hoping that Creston will receive a yisit about the loth of June  from Mrs.V. S. MacLachlan, secretary  of B. C. Women's Institutes, who is a  great authority on public health matters, and if all, both men and women,  who are interested in the subiect (and  also those who are not interested, so  that they may become so) will come  and hear her speak, on a date to be  announced later, we feel sure they will  gain a great deal of information about  forming a public health centre.  This is not a matter to be taken up  by the women's institute alone, but  being a matter of public interest, and  for the benefit of the whole community, th-p public in general should help  to bear the burden, for only by co-operation can we secure success.  J. C. HAMILTON.  Secy. Women's Institute.  <���������*  to   the  'Tender  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR  Nurse vs. Hosoital  1  Editor Review:  Sir,���������Having read, a letter in your  last issue under the heading, Hospital  ys. Nurse, I should like to write a few  words in reply on behalf of Creston  Women's Institute, as it is the Institute that is taking up the matter of a  Public Health Nurse.  To begin with the heading itself is  misleading, for such a nurse would be  in no way against a hospital. Some  misunderstanding appears to have  arisen on this point amongst some of  the general public and a few of the  Institute members who were not present at the last meeting, when the matter was discussed.  It is not a matter of haying either a  hospital or a district nurse. To quote  part of a letter from Dr. H. E. Young,  proyincial officer of health, which has  been sent to all our different organizations: "This is a question entirely  apart from hospital work, but would  work in conjunction with the hospital  should you establish one in the future."  We have put off doing anything in  the matter of a nurse for some time  till we could see what was going to be  done about a hospital, so that we  shonld not appear to be interfering at  all with that scheme, but we did not  consider it advisable to delay the matter any longer owing to the conference to be held here in a few months'  time. Still, the fact of our haying a  hospital, if we can get one, would not  v e,r the nurse unnecessary any  more than, on the other hand, she  would tako the place of ono, though  she would, of coiirre, be- a great deal  better than nothing at all.  Tho nurso would reach some who  would have no need to go into a hospital iiT-.d yet would be greatly bene-  fitted by a little attention daily. She  would have an oilice in town and hours  when she could be consulted daily, and  she would also work in conjunction  with the doctor amongst the hcIiooI  children, following up his medical in-  Hpection by going to tho parents whore  necessary and giving thorn help und  advice, thus corning in contact with  the younger children who do not attend school.  Her duties are to visit tho sick, and  help them in thoir own homes, but who  dooH not undertake tho entire charge  of any ono case to tho neglect of  others; giying help to all who need it  ������h far jih possible.

Ruggles shook his head. There  was a flush on his cheeks and his eyes \  were yery bright. "No sir," said he, j  "I don't want anybody's job. What  I want is a new one all of'my own.  I want the general managership of  thc far east���������Asia and India and Australia. I want to see the Walkeasy  Shoe for sale In Colomo and Bombay and Calcutta and Singapore and  Sydney and Melbourne and Manila  and Hongkong and Yokohama. The  California people can look after Hon-  alulu���������and there must bc a fine field."  Mr. Downing tossed his cigar  through the window. There was a  flush on his own cheeks now.  "It's a big idea," said he, "but I  don't sec why not. Look here, can't  ���������you come to dine with us tonight?  And afterwards we can go over this  thing with my boy, Dick." He gave  Ruggle's a quizzical smile.8 "You  seem to have got the thing pretty well  worked out," said he.  "I've thought about it a lot," Rugglcs answered.^ ':It ain't so much the  money proposition, because goodness  knows I've* get more money than I  can ������pend, right now. "It's just the  idea   of   doing   something  big."  "Yes-," Mr. Downing assented, taking out a fresh cigar, ''after all, that's  P.-  -nan-  thing." "  per window.       Declining  Miss  dial  land's  invitation   to   enter,   Ruth   told  thc chauffeur to go to the hotel, where  j she sat for half an hour on  the  tcr-  ' race, impatiently awaiting her parent,  I and   saying   to   herself  highly  unflat-  j tering things about the speed of Rug*  ! gle's limousine.   When finally she saw  , it approaching, she saw Mr. Downing  alight and shake hands with Ruggles  and  heard  him   say:  "Tonight,   then  at eight."    From which she   gathered  that Ruggles was to dine with them.  As   her  father   entered,   Ruth  went  forward rather shyly to meet him.  "Hello, Toodles," said he, and he  caught her flushed face in his hands  and kissed her heartily, to the poignant envy *of one or two beflanneled  youths who were loitering about.  "Think we were never coming?" *  "What took you  so   long?"     Ruth-  asked.    "Tire down, or can't that big  box get ovcr thc road?"  "No. We took it easy 'o purpose.  Been having a long business talk. A  good man Ruggles. Got a clear, and  steady head on his shoulders. Should  not wonder if we managed to do some  big business together. He's got thc  right spirit ���������the sort of spirit I've  always tried to infuse our people with.  He impressed me a lot."  Ruth's heavy lashes half hid her  sapphire   -eyes.  "Didn't you talk about anything but  business?" she demanded.  "Well, no���������not  that I  remember���������  ' why?"  j "Oh ���������nothing." She turned her  j shoulder to him, then looked back re-  ; scntfully. "I only thought that as hc  \ saved me from drowning last night,  you  might have���������have"  Mr. Downing laughed. "Jealous,  ,hey?" said hc. His face grew suddenly grave. "My dear little daughter," said he, "Now that you're safe  I don't want to think about that any  more than I can help. It's too awful!  God!"  H'e turned away suddenly and  strode to the stairs.  Ruggels dined that night with thc  Downing's at the Hermitage. "No  shop" was talked during the meal, but  Dick drew Ruggles out on his Turkish  experiences, listening with the most  intense interest to his brief but graphic descriptions, which were, like all of  Ruggle's anecdotes, as impersonal as  one can conceive possible. That native modesty, which had been a drawback in active commercial life, was  now an unconscious asset in a social  one. It drew to Ruggles people who  he could never possibly havc known  had he been self-satisfied.  Mr. Downing spoke but seldom.  He confined himself to watching Ruggles and weighing* him; and despite  his first strongly favorable impressions, he ���������was surprised at his gradually growing conviction that he had  fallen far short in his estimate of his  A Famous Motor Boat  AutoStrop Razor  -sharpens itself  EEXPERIENCE shows  ���������* that only a sharp  blade can give a perfect  ���������shave, also that a blade  cannot remain sharp without stropping.

As an industrial power, Richard P. Downing had gained  the greatest part of his success by a  genius for the selection of the tight  men for the right places, and as hc  watched and listened hc began to  j think that there must havc been a  flaw in some part of his organisation  to have made possible the overlooking of Ruggles.  As  for  Ruth,   she  scarcely  opened  her lips.    Ruggles  observed this reticence  and   put  his   own   construction  unon it.    He decided that the thought  of  Roxana  still  weighed ou  thc girl's  mind.     That   probkrn,   thought   Rug-  pic's sadly to himself,    should    havc  i little hat  to , been settled between them before all  big  shoulders   these other  things had happened.    It-  was   there  like   a   broken   stitch ���������in  a shoe-sole or anything else:.    He did  not blame Ruth, nor  could he blame  himself.

So    Ruth    retired   early to stretch  herself in bed and ponder these problems, and after she had gone, the men  went into thc salon-couloir and talked  ) "shop."

Bully big  thought!  Ruggles finally said good night and  walked back to his villa in a peculiar  state of mind. It was, piu'haps, more  difficult for him to adjust himself to  this newly -sprung intimacy with the  Downings, father and son, than it had  been for him to think of himself as  a millionaire- with great, responsibilities or even as a suitor for the hand  of Ruth.

A Qlltll  and Ade  Red   Cross   League   Faced   With  A  -Gigantic Task in  Europe  Raymond B. Fosdick, formerly of  Buffalo, and for a time acting as the  undersecretary-general of the League  of Nations, and who returned from  Europe a few weeks ago, says in a  communication to the New York  Times:  "No one who has been abroad in  recent months, in contact with the situation in countries like Poland, Austria, Hungary, Germany, Czecho-  m Slovakia and Jugo-Slovakia, can escape thc belief that Europe is plunging to a catastrophe besides which  political questions such as boundaries  and indemnities arc insignificant. So  far from getting on their feet, these  countries are sinking in a quagmire  of non-production, stavation and disease, which only thc united efforts of  lhe rest of tlu- world can keep from  spreading."  It is Mr., Fosdick*s conviction that,  "Europe facts a catastrophe of appalling proportions, measurable in  anarchy and loss of life on a scale  hitherto undreamed of." This accords  in substance with thc statements recently made by Henry P. Davidson,  formerly chairman of the war council  of ibe American Red Cross and now  chairman of the. general'council of  llic Red Cross League, which embraces thc Red Crn.'-r, Societies of twenty-  seven  nations.

I  became bloodless, and so pale that  friends often said I looked consumptive. One..night I had to be taken  home from the office, and a doctor  was called in who told me I must not  go back for a time. Sometimes^ I  would faint, and to walk up the stairs  would leave me utterly breathless. As  I did not appear to be getting any better one of my girls friends, whose  mother had used Dr. Williams Pink  Pills with great benefit, advised me to  try these. I took the pills very faithfully for some time, with the result  that they restored me to good health,  and now when anyone tells me they  feel weak or rundown^ I a1 ways recommend Dr. Williams Pink Pills, as  I feel so thankful for the help they  gave me."  If you have any of the symptoms  described by Miss Johnston try building up the blood with Dr. Williams  Pink Pills. Eat nourishing food, exercise a little in thc open air dai'y  and watch the color return to cheeks  and lips. You can run no risk in  giving Dr. Williair-s Pink Pills a trial  as they cannot injure the most deli  cate system. 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.  Was Sure How ������he Duel Was Going  To End  Many good stories are being printed about Clemenceau just now in the  French newspapers.

Broad Toed Shoes To be Style  After a precedence of some years,  it appears that the pointed shoe is  about to be shelved. According to  the shoe dealers, and the latest numbers of Shoe journals and catalogues.  there are very few pointed shoes being shown, and next fall shoes with  broad toes will be the style. This  applies to women's shoes as well as  men's, and will, no doubt, be welcomed with satisfaction by the men who  have been forced to squeeze their  pedal extremeties into stream-line  bodied shoes, "which are built for  speed, but not for comfort, and for  looks and not for endurance.  t tt       ������  nows  This?

Butter is retailing  at 75 eents. a drop of fiye cents in the  last week. There is now a good supply of dairy butter and the creamery  article is not being imported to any  extent.  Mr, and Mrs. Attwood got back on  Tuesday from a ten-day stay with  Cranbrook friends. Along with Mi-,  and Mrs. Adams they made the trip  to Invermere for the East Kootenay  boards of trade conference at the  week-end.  Vital statistics for May show the  Valley population to have been enlarged by the arrival of four brand  new citizens���������all of them girls. There  were no marriages and no deaths.  For June, however, cupid promises a  better showing.  Creston has decided upon a Citizens  Day celebration on Friday, June 25th,  and the committee in charge of the  affair is meeting to-night to arrange  the sports and other attractions. The  best boliday of the sort eyer seen here  is being arranged for.  Local painters report 1920 the busiest  season in their line in the last half-  dozen years. Jas. Adlard, who has  -just finished the exteriors of the R,. B.  Staples and Jas. Cook residences is  now brightening up the house occupied by C. G. Bennett.  Tomato planting is due to get underway at high pressure this week. The  Juno full moon is now safely passed  and all those who refrain from setting  out plants until after the full moon  are busy confident that further frost  damage is not at all iikely.  A notable transfer of town property  was effected at the week-end when  Mrs. Ben Long disposed of her residence on Victoria Aye., to Mr. Tung-  stead of Millet, Alta.. at a price in the  neighborhood of $2500. The purchasers will get possession immediately.  The June meeting of Oreston Women's Institute is called for Friday  next. June 11th, at 3 o'clock, when Mrs.  M. B. Long will giye a talk on the  care of bulbs. Other business will be  in connection with the forthcoming  convention as well as the flower show.  Will tbe party who was seen removing the tire, inner tube and rim from  tho disabled Gray Dnrb car at the intersection of the Rodgers' and government roads on the evening of May  21th kindly return this property and  say-'.' trouble.    John Hobden, Creston.  During the past week C.P.R. crews  have been here generally improving  the ioiup;my\s property. The station  platform has been repliniked in spots  aud a new set of steps put in leading  up from Wilson Aye. The residence  or agent Swanson has also had considerable interior repainting.  Geo. Mead arrived from Natal on  .Saturday on a yisit, to liis mother, and  incidentally to recuperate from an accident he KUHtained a couple of weeks  ago while horse buck riding, the  animal tlmiu'ing him and aluui.si,  breaking one of his legs. He is now  milking good progress toward c:i m-  plele recovery.  i\  -'hip   nf   a  couple   of \i-eel<-s  IVeshvlei iaiui had services on  Creston Fruit Growers Union this  week receiyed au offer for their entire  stock of sugar at a price a few cents a  pound higher than they are selling it  at present. This would indicate an  expected shortage and makes immediate sugar- buying a decidedly worth  while investment.  Messrs. Constable and Hayes got  home on Sunday from their trip to  Invermere on hoa-d of trade business.  Residents in the Columbia Valley  state that this year's accumulation of  snow is the heaviest ever and giyen a  little steady warm weather the cannot  see how the worst floods in a dozen  years can possibly be avoided.  -"  Rev. G. H. Hamilton, local Methodist pastor, who w^is expected back  last Saturday to resume permanent  charge of his congregation, is apparently not in the good health he appeared to be while home the fore part  of May. Latest word is that arrangements are being made to send a man  here to take his vvork until late in the  fall.  Town property has been on the  moye the last few days, the latest sale  being the store property of Mrs. W.  K. Brown on Victoria Ave., opposite  the Methodist Church, which has  been purchased by Mrs. Bruce, who  will remodel and occupy it as a millinery store. At present Mr. Morrow is  residing in the premises. The price,  we hear, was about S1600.  The delegates to the board of trad*3  conference at Invermere last week did  some very effective boosting. On  Monday, W. R. Kimpton one of the  oldest and biggest ranchers nn the  Windermere side of the lake, arriyed  in Creston to look the Valley over  with a view to locating here. He has  lately given an option on his place and  is hoping to dispose of it.  The drugstore property on Wilson  Ave., which the Beattie Oatway Co.  will vacate about the middle of the  month, was purchased last week by  Mawson Brothers. The firm propose  to make some interior improvements  before moving into it about the middle  of July. Mawson Bros, also own the  vacant lot next to it which will expedite any further expansion in the  way of bigger premises.  new roads and repair work it is announced that almost $45,000 will be  spent on highways in Creston Valley  this ye.-:r, if labor is available.  F. G. Little, who had the distinction -  of owning the first motor car in the  Valley���������the Pioneer Ford, which be  bought in 1912���������is now entitled to  rank as tbe Pioneer Overland owner,  having this week taken delivery _of a  light four, the very latest in the Willys Overland manufuetnre. With the  mayor again in the auto owning class  nnd Hnghie McCreath handling a  Ford truck, Foster will have pretty  much of a monopoly on 1920 weather  guessing.  Hon. Jonn Keen, of Kaslo, M.P.P.  for this constituency, spent Wednesday and Thursday here looking over  the districts in which new roads and  bridges are contemplated for this year.  This was Mr. Keen's first visit since  undergoing almost six months hospital  treatment with a like number of operations last year. All are agreed  that he -never looked better in the  four years Creston has known him  intimately, and he certainly has lost  none of liis old time activity in getting about the country and generally  looking, after his constituent's interests.  The local mill of justice will be  rather busy on Indian grist this week.  Provincial police Vaehon having unless than four of the reds due for trial  on the arrival of R. L.
