The most important feature of the  conclave was the naming of Saturday,  October 2nd, as the date for this year's  fair. This is the usual time for the  exhibition, coming two days after the  Nelson show, which will expedite  matters in getting a good supply of  goyernment judges, possibly iu all departments���������incidentally this is also  the date of the full moon, which will  mean something in getting the out of  town crowd home.

An effort will also be  made to secure a couple of lady judges  from the department staff of ajudicat-  ors.  The secretary will also write the department re this year's graat. In 1919  a matter of $250 was allotted Creston,  but this year, a new system has been  introduced in this connection, government aid being on the basis of the previous year's prize list and the amount  of money actually paid exhibitors.  Guy Constable is still acting as secretary but O. B. Garland, who some  time ago tentatively agreed to take on  the .seerietarial work, will be again  consulted with a view to having him  take over the w<>rk, failing which the  xx X.m ti. - 'jtx������~ c v** ii*-*���������*,.. .-^.^v r^^v '���������'^'u.^c voKjJ^"^^>^i*"������������������  n'lake another appointment. ..  The prize list committee reported  that as a result of their campaign for  special prizes in cash and goods, as  well the promise of at least seven new  cups, it was prepared to assure that  the 1920 list of awards would be considerably more attractive than in 1919  in every way, and that they wore  drafting their list to take care of at  least a-distribution of $600 in prizes,  which does not include the value of  the several cups. The trophies were  being distributed in the livestock,  poultry, fruit and yegetable elasses,  while in the -other departments very  attractive cash offerings were being  made. The list this year will be issued  at the end of July, and will be mailed  direct to prospective exhibitoi-9.  The grounds committee reported on  a number of prospective improvements, including a shed for the poultry exhibit, and if possible also sheds  for some of "the livestock. It is announced that the next meeting will be  a general one at which all members  are urged to attend, and at which all  the committees for the year will be  struck, as well as naming the ladies  arid gentlemen who will have charge  of the different sections on fair dayt  As there is still a small debt on the  new main building and some extra  revenue will be required for the poultry tihed and any other sti-ucturcr- that  may have to bo erected, it is likely the  agricultural association will appropriate fair night for the purpose of  giving a dance to help secure the  needed revenue.  ranches.

Cool weather the past weekjaas  taken the flood water off the flats considerably, and unless an excessively  hot wave happens along soon it is not  likely this year's overflow will hinder  traffic at all.

Evans of Revelstoke, who passed away at an early  hour on Monday morning, following a  short illness that-^pnly took the turn  for the worst a few hours before the  end came.   Deceased, who will  be remembered as Laura Edmondson, was  in her twenty-third year, had been a  Creston girl since 1905,when she arriyed with her parenfe, until May of last  year,  when she was wedded to Mr,  Evans, since when^ they have  resided  at Revelstoke.

On  the basis of the returns made  in the  statement of Secretary  Constable to  the gathering it would appear that on  the ayerage 2200 pounds of flats' hay  is required to put each head of stock  through  the winter that obtains   in  Creston Valley.   In  other words  the  total cut of hay on the flats last year  was 2510 tons, which was required for  2131 head of stock if the statements of  those applying for hay can be relied  upon���������and as the association went to  some trouble to check tip the quantity  cf stock in the district tbe figures can  be taken as quite accurately stating  the situation.  President J. W. Dow  occupied the  chair at the annual meeting, which  was favored with the attendance   of  T. P. MacKenzie of Victoria, provincial grazing commissioner.     Briefly put  the treasurer's statement showed that  during the year a matter of almost  $20,000 was handled, and that after  taking care of every expenditure during the year there is a surplus of $133.  Of this amount it was decided to vote  $25 for the purchase of a cup for the  agricultural association, which will be  known as the Stockbreeders' Cup, and  will be awarded for the best beef type  animal at the fai-**���������the cup to be won  twice in  succession before  becoming  the permanent property of any winner.   The -meeting decided to change  i**^&asscc*ui-vions year so ss to have Jfe  close the first of May rather than at  the end of December as   heretofore,  fixing, the date of the annual meeting  for the second week in May.  At the conclusion of this feature of  the proceedings Mr. MacKenzie  was  called on for au address, in the course  of which he stated that the regulations that had been drafted to govern  the Valley association  had  been  approved by the  department and were  now part of the B.C. Grazing Regulations.    He took opportunity to compliment the organization on the excellence of their operating rules, remarking that they were exceptionally useful to the department in that they covered both grazing and hay cutting���������a  situation that existed  nowhere eise in  the province at present, but doubtless  would be met with at other points later on.     Mr.  MacKenzie was equally  eulogistic in  his remarks on the conduct of the association, stating that he  had less trouble to contend with here  than at any other place.  With the exception of two or three  dissenting the, 1910 officers and advisory board was given an enthusiastic  re-election.   They are:  President���������J. W. Dow.  Vice-President���������C.

It was tip to Secretary Constable to  acknowledge the confidence that had  heen so uiuuistakahly expressed in the  handling of affairs last year, which h<-  did in felicitous terms, remarking that  as it had been the first season in the  association's history it had of necessity been quite and intense and complex situation to handle, getting ap-  jilioi**'* ������>f thi' j'*! t hiM-in;' wbeo be observed that for tbis year the saiiing  would be quite smooth if all tlu- nielli-  hors loyally co-operated with the officers and directors.

To change the subject he began to
talk about the company. Ruggles had
also a deeper motive in this topic, and
decided to take this opportunity of
making a proposition which he had
been seriously considering for some
time. With this object in view, he
said to Mr. Downing, as they stepped
out on the quay:

Mr. Downing relighted his cigar
for the  third or fourth  time.
"I suppose," said hc, "your first
step would be to fire the managers of
the Paris and Vienna shops."
"Why?" Ruggles demanded. "I
don't see any good in that. Durand
has made good in Paris, and they tell
me that Lorenz is beginning to make

you about."
Mr. Downing looked rather surprised, but readily assented, whereupon
Ruggles asked Dick Downing if he
would kindly take Miss Challand back
with him. The matter being thus arranged, the party was divided, and before getting into the limousine after
Mr. Downing, Ruggles said to his
"Drive slowly, Henri. We are in
no hurry."
He was rather silent as the big car
glided through the city and started to
climb the long hill. Mr. Downing
leaned back in his seat, lighted a cigar, and waited for Ruggles to begin.
But it was not until they were on the
open road that Ruggles came out of
his apparent abstraction. He looked
at his companion and smiled.
"I've got such a lot to say," he
explained naively, "that I'm trying to
get it sort of framed up before I start.
First off, I guess I'd better tell you
something about myself. Then you'll
understand better what conies afterwards."
Mr. Downing nodded,. "That's always a good plan," he said.
So, with no preamble of any sort,
Ruggles proceeded to describe the

"But thcy handed you the double

"What earthly difference does that
make?" Ruggles demanded heatedly.
"So long as they can sell thc goods,
they're the men for the jobs."
"How about the Euroepan general
manager?" asked Mr. Downing.
' "Why, he's all right, I guess," Rugglcs answered. "Where I made my
mistake was in not going to see him
myself, like Lorenz did. I took too
much for granted. I was mad clean

any girl have assented to whatever
hc might have said and passively endured his caresses? Would not any
girl have welcomed, in her dread of
approaching dissolution, the grasp ot
strong arms and the comforting assurance that she was not to slip alone
into the chill depths below?
Ruggles grew hot with shame at the
recollection of his wild words and actions. It seemed to him that he had
played the part of a coward rather than a aero, and that to attempt
to profit by it now would be the performance of a cad. No, it could not
be done. His emotions of the night
before had been the result of shock
and fatigue and the reaction from past
danger. If ever he were to have Ruth
hc must win her fairly by faithfulness
and industry, and not through a.series
of blind accidents. Even now it was
possible that she might remember
enough of what had occurred to hz
dreading the fulfilment of her faltered pledge.
"She needn't worry," muttered Ruggles to himself. "Unless she gives
me sonic reason I'll never remind her
of it."

His resolution had rougl t back dignity and self-possession. Scarcely

na branch, his disappointment, and
what it had led to. He spared neither himself nor others. He narrated
the facts precisely as they had occurred.
Once or twice during this part of
the tale Mr. Downing was on the
point of interrupting, but he held his
peace.    His cigar went out.
Ruggles then passed to his service
in the Balkans with the Red Cross.
He described briefly his defence of
Hamid Pasha, laying no stress upon
tit-.       --r. *l rx ��� S-..M- r mi 0 .1.
itis Vtiior, uu*. as zrom -.uc 5<.art, confining himself briefly to the facts and
leaving the details to the imagination.
Mr. Downing was not lacking in imagination.     Every promoter of  ever}*-
bigf successful  enterprise is  endowed
with this quality in its soundest sen St..
Ruggles told of his convalescence and
the last days of Hamid Pasha, when
they sat upon the terrace of the palace reading Swinburne and discussing
life immortal.       Mr. Downing raisiid
his bushy eyebrows, and the glances
which  he  threw' at Ruggles were no
longer merely curious.    That magnetism  which  was  thc  boy's  birthright
and had  its  source in absolute honesty of thought and word and deed,
making  it  impossible for  him   to  be
aught  than  purely natural, found  its
full effect upon a man who owed the
whole of his  success  to a keen  and
correct estimate of men and motives.
Ruggles was quite unconscious of this
divine gift.   Had hc been conscious of
it hc would not havc possessed it long.
But others were conscious of it.    Customers had felt it; Pembroke had felt
it;   Mr.   Falconer had  felt it;   Hamid
Pasha had felt it; Miss Elliot had felt
it; and now Mr. Downing was feeling
it.    Ol all the people of whom he had
come in intimate contact the two who
had foil it least   were   Darthea    and
Miss Challand;  Darthea, because she
was herself too self-centred, and Miss
Chal and, because she was hide-bound
with  insular prejudice.
Rugglcs   then   told   of  the   fortune
left, him by  Hamid Pasha and its entailed   respe.it.sibilitics.    Mr.  Downing
relighted his cigar and then let it go
ont:  again.     Ruggles   described    how,
after ccrt-iin difficulties, he had managed   to   fulfill   his   sacred   obligation,
and  get  the  girls  safely betrothed to
���''-'''���'���mc* ,-.:-,iiinable husbands-elect.    Mr. Down-

Low Priced Land in Western Canada
Is Attracting American
Sentiment in the United States,
which for a long period was apathetic
and even adverse, so-far as Manitoba
and other western. Canadian farm
lands were concerned, has undergone
a complete change in favor of the j
purchasing of tracts on this side of
thc border. This is the report that
was brought back from Chicago, 111.,
by L. Ascnault, president of the Ar-
senault agencies, limited, who has just
returned from ia southren business
Much of thc credit for this change
in public opinion is due to De Witt
Foster, superintendent of resources
for thc Canadian National Railways,
Mr. Arsenault said. Mr. Foster has
done great campaign work in various
states and has succeeded in convincing landseekers that land can bc purchased in western Canada for $25 per
acre equal to that for which they are
obliged to pay $400 per acre in thcir
own states.
This advertising of Western Canadian lands has interested men in Illinois,  Indiana,  Iowa,  Texas,  Minne-

British Interests Securing Pulp Wood
Limits Here
G. R. Hall Caine, son of Hall Caine
the "noveTTst," was recently "in OttawaT
In   the  course   of  an   interview     Mr.
Caine said that he   was    negotiating
for the purchase of pulp wood limits
and pulp, the company hc represents
being prepared to   spend    $40,000,000
in thc .enterprise.    Mr. Caine, who is
himself a- director of several English
paper mill companies, and a pulp and
power company in Canada, is representing seven of thc largest newspaper
publishers in  England   whose   object
in securing pulp wood limits is to insure for their paper a continuous supply of newsprint.      Negotiations are
under way for thc  purchase of  1,000
square   miles   of   limits.     Incidentally
Mr. Caine expressed thc opinion that
there would be a great influx of English capital to Canada in thc next few
ycars.    Thc eyes of English business
men were turning toward Canada at
thc present moment as never before.
More   men   would   marry   only
love if thcy couhl afford it.

It should be constantly borne in mind  that pale, bloodless girls need plenty  of  nourishment,  plenty  of sleep  and  regular open-air exercise.    But a lack  of appetite, and tired,   aching    limbs  tend to hinder progress.   To save the  weak, thin-bloo.ded sufferer she must  have new, rich, red blood and nothing  meets a case of this kind so well as  Dr. Williams Pink Pills.    These pills  not only enrich and increase the blood  supply-, they help the appetite and aid  digestion, relieve the weary back and  limbs, thus promptly restoring health  and strength and transforming anae-  mie   girls  and  women   into   cheerful,  happy people.   Among the thousands  who have obtained new   health    and  strength through the use of Dr. Williams Pink Pills is Miss Violet Booth,  Gienarm, Ont., who says: ��������� "For a  long time I was in a badly run-down  condition.    I was pale, breathless at  the   least  exertion, and  could  hardly  do any housework   without    stopping  to rest.   I often had severe headaches,  and my appetite was poor and fickle,  and  I would get up in  the ^ morning  without  feeling   the  least  bit   rested.  I had tried several medicines, but did  not   get benefit  from   anything  until  I began the use of Dr. Williams Pink  PHls.    When I had taken two boxes  I could see an improvement, and after  using  six  boxes   I   found  my  health  fully restored.    I feel altogether different  since   I  used  the  pills   that   I  strongly advise them for all weak, run  down  people."  If you are weak or ailing in anj*-  way, avail yourself at once of the  splendid home treatment which Dr.  Williams Pink Pills so easily afford,  and you will be among those who rejoice in regained health.

It  has been so successful during" the last  winter that it may be said to merit  the term "cold-proof." The owner  is Mr. H. Gauvin, a refrigerator engineer.  Thc housc was built of cement and  care was taken that there should be  no means whereby the warm air in  the house might travel up the walls,  and escape through a crack or down  thc inner surface of the outer wall,  and so lose its heat. To this end the  walls were so built as to eliminate air  pockets of appreciable size. The housc  had a concrete basement, and here  again the builder look care that the  cold air would uot leak into thc  house.  It must not be thought that the  house was hermetically scaled, for it  baa A3 windows to the nine rooms.  But there are only two entrances, one  in the front and one in the roar. During the winter the house was heated  throughout by electricity, without undue expense.  Farm Women's Institutes  The Alberta farm womens1 institutes are now the second largest in thc  Dominion, with a membership ol  more than 13,000. During thc ycat  1919, 32 branches were organized in  the province making a total of 265.  Activities include classes in cooking,  sewing, socialogy, child welfare and  thc undertaking of relief work.

Next to the good feed, if not of  equal rank with it, in creating the  '"It's always fair weather when  good fellows get together" spirit,  there is nothing like sociability  in the way of any sort of entertainment that will mix people together and get them better acquainted with each other.

West Creston has just got off  to a new start by developing the  social side of life and so far the  Shingles For Sale  OK is forthcoming there is every  likelihood of the "West Creston  and Corn Creek section having a  school quite advantageously located for all concerned.  This is the first of a series of  questions that will have to be adjusted on the give and take basis  and it will be a fine thing for that  district if the existing co-operative spirit can be maintained, as  there is every reason to believe it  will be, certainly if a widely  spread out community ean agree  as to a school site most anything  else should be easy to amicably  a^jurt.  With the long pull and the  strong pull and pulling altogether  and no stock taken in any tales  interested outsiders may have to  peddle, the country beyond the  Kootenay River can reasonably  speedily come into its own. A  house divided against itself cannot stand, neither need a community of warring elements ever expect to make the grade.  adherents of these denominations  the sanity of the party originating the idea of three manufactories of the -staff of life would be  the subject of a far more unkindly type of comment than is meted  out the local weather prophets,  and justly so. And yet his mentality could hardly be inferior to  those who would seem to consider  it good policy to encourage the  upkeep of three dispensaries of  the bread of life in the make of  which, in the last analysis, there  is but the one ingredient of doing  unto others as we would be done  by.

Many Auto  Troubles  A timely and, we believe, well-  deserved compliment is paid the  Creston board of trade by Win.  Searle in his letter on the local  church situation when he queries,  "Is the influence of the church of  God of less account than a live  board of trade?"   While The Ee-  tri/v-crr   xxmiil/.

I/IAWII  even a few, if any, in the Valley  would be inclined to give any organization the preeminence over  the church, at the same time it  would be unfair to have the impression Mr. Searle's letter might  convey get abroad that locally  the churches and the board of  trade were being conducted equally advantageously and that it  might seem that the latter. was  making the best showing.  What the board of trade is accomplishing hereabouts the church  in its sphere can readily discount  many hundred per cent if it will  but  adopt the principle  of  concentrating  all  its  effort  in  one  organization i'n place of the three  existing (and we use the preceding   term   advisedly)   denominations.    Three boards of trade   in  Creston    would    be    futile    and  equally burdensome were it possible  to perpetuate them.  With but one Protestant church  it would be quite possible to have  one fairly good choir and a musical feature to worship that it is  now out of the question. It would  bc equally possible to have a  young people's organization that  is now impossible, but none the  loss urgent.

The Edmonton Journal: "The example given by British Columbia  should have a beneficial effect elsewhere."  The Financial Post:    "The first annual statement of public accounts of  any   Canadian   Government���������Federajl  or Provincial���������to be issued with revenue  and  expenditure  of    each    Department of the Government segregated under one heading, and with corresponding tables showing actual'and'  estimated  revenue  aad  expenditures  in each item side by side was tabled  in   the British   Columbia  Legislature  last week.    This business���������like form  of  presenting the public  accounts  is  the culmination of a series of important improvements in Government auditing that have characterized the accounts   and   estimates   of   the   coast  Province during the past two or three  years."  The Monetary Times: "The accounts for the year have been prepared so that the cost of each unit  of service may be known and^compar-  ed from year to year. The cost of  each Department, and of each subdivision of the department is shown,  including salaries, maintenance of  buildings, and all miscellaneous expenses."  Canadian Finance: "The Public  Accounts of British Columbia recently tabled in the Legislature ave  further striking proof of the many  improvements in Governmental accounting which have resulted in placing expert accountants in charge of  such matters. Tho accounts reforrod  to enable any interested porson to ascertain immediately, not only the cost  of operating, and the revenue derived from each department of the Government, hut also from oach division  or dOiiurlmont in that branch.

To me this is  the better plan  than canyassing for funds for the salary of 6*ne nunrsfei who would be as one  drop, of watjer in the ocean.    In this  considerable   "district, and  with    the  population *   constantly      increasing,  nothing. short of a   hospital with   a  xnatergity ward will fill the bill���������to  say nothing of being cheaper in the  long run.    Why go to  Cranbrook or  Nelson for hospital   treatment when  we can have one in our own town. To  go away and have your * husband and  children  come to see you  on yisiting  days; or in the case of a young person  -being in hospital, it costs some money  for the mother to stay at a hotel while  the   child  is   undergoing   treatment.  But, here yon  are right at home, and  within call if needed.   With a hospital  operating as* I haye  tried to outline it  would be a case of equal pay for equal  treatment���������sotiiethiug entirely impossible with a district nurse who at best  could only take care of one case at a  time, while the  many would be doing  the paying with no chance "of utilizing  her services. G.K.  The Telephone Trouble  Editor, Review .  Sir,���������The patience of the monthly  subscribers to our local telephone system has nearly run to the end of its  endurance. The party responsible fortius public irritating condition can  only be traced to the management, o"r,  to be more precise, the controlling  head of this public utility.  I sincerely regret   being forced  to  xt-'~ l - : :��������� t-*ii_ J  Lruis (icisuueu c&prcsaeuu   in fjuuuc, auu  especially so when it concerns one of  my old and esteemed friends; but when  a person's shortcomings in a special  line of endeavor (although he be a  friend) takes the form of putting the  brakes on the community wheel of  progress, then the true friend is only  he who has the courage to show him  the error of his way, and save him  from the future wrath of his assumed  friends.  The plea that our telephone system  does not pay is not the fault of the  public nor the system, but entirely  traceable to the management. You  can no more expect a liberal flow from  the public purse on starvation rations  of public service than you can expect ���������.  a liberal flow of milk from a healthy  cow fed oh sawdust instead of bran  and shorts.  The glaring shortcoming of the controlling manager of the local telephone  system is his inability to distinguish  between competent and incompetent  seryice of his lineman. Personally I  do not know this gentleman, but I  only have to take down the receiver to  hear the sloven, selfish and haughty  indifference to public seryice, lasting  days, and sometimes prolonging into  weeks, by this selfsame indiyidual. An  electric public shock directed to the  management of this public utility will  restore it to public service, which in  these strenuous times can ill afford to  lose the full-capacity service of any  useful citizens. The moral and financial loss to our community life by a  continuation of the past and present  incompetent seryice cannot be computed on paper.  While I am at it let me take a rap at  the local board of trade. This, I un-  derstandj is an organic body constituted of our leading citizens, whereby  one can note the pulsations of public  life in the community. Without niin-  iinizing its accomplishments and usefulness in the past I note there is a  tendency to outside show without a  corresponding attention to inside conditions and health, and it avails little  the outside attention we show if the  inside body is decaying.  Take, for instance, our public roads  ���������tho arteries of community life.    If  the general condition of our roads has  escaped the attention of this body of  public men it is indeed dull and unresponsive to public feeling. I talked  with a stranger yesterday. He came  in his ���������car from Vancouyer to Duck  Creek, via Grand Forks and Spokane,  and returned by the same route. This  man confessed to me with a blush  (sensing he might hurt my local pride)  that in all his ttav������ Uing he never traversed a single piece of road in all that  in such horrible and intolerable condition as the roads from the intersection  of the boundary line to his turning  point at'Duck Creek.  I sense the indignation of Creston  board of trade on  being   accused of  having any responsibility for  bumpy  and   well "nigh    untrayelable   public  roads.    In this,  with  my highly res  pected board of trade I venture to take  issue, although I admit that tbe function of looking after  the public roads  in a non-municipal community is the'  sworn and honorable obligation of the  responsible elected  government.    But  when this self-same government���������our  own elected body���������turns out "to bc indifferent, if  not incapable, to perform  the trust bestowed upon it, and disregard the safety of citizens by permitting public bridges  to  become death  traps for both  man  and beast, then I  consider it tbe duty of a public body,  such  as  a board  of trade,  to assist,  guide and warn  such government of  its shortcomings.    But so far I have  not heard a protest emanate from this  local  board of   ours that anything is  lacking  in  the governnirnt proposals  in   the   community.      And   I   repeat  again, that if the board of trade cannot hear, or sae the true conditions, I  would not say it is dull, but  I would  say that it is a political imbecile.  Are yon, Messrs. --uoumiunity Farmers, as indifferent to serviceable public roads in our district as are, appar  ently, our guiding citizens and ruling  government ? If not, arise from your  two thousand years lethargy and take  the leading position; assert your supremacy in our next election, such as  the univerral law of nature has in  store for vou,   not for  the purpose of  iritKiug cue Sump ljs    uui* nn;������i.i x-uii-uiayu-  ary government officials, but for the  purpose'of converting these otherwise  cull materials into useful by-products  for public seryice. They are unfit as  farmers, but very useful* when we control, and can place them where" best  fitted, O. J. WIGEN.  The Cranbroofe Courier hears that  the B. C.

Around about this time of the year  it is customary for the housewife to  indulge in her annual spring house-  cleaning. It has become the usual  procedure, too, for the provincial and  municipal fire prevention and health  authorities to declare "Clean-up" days  or weeks. The object is, of course,  to focus public attention upon the importance of organized community as  well as individual effort being devoted to the task of collecting and destroying the refuse and rubbish which  aiways accumulates around the house  atid other buildings during the severe  winter months.  It is important that this work be  attended to for many reason. First,  there is the question of health to be  considered. The accumulation of  dirt, filth and waste material of various kinds develop from such accumulations, but flies, the greatest of all  carriers of disease, find their chief  breeding places in filth and rubbish.  A general spring clean-up is one of  the best health measures that can be  taken  in  any  home  or  community.  The removal of the dust and dirt  resulting from the sealing up of houses and offices during the cold winter  months is also a protective measure  from moths and insects whose destructive activities are loo well known  to even require mention.  A general spring clean-up is important also from the standpoint of fire  protection. Many people who exercise care in regard to thc ���������:���������"*��������� cumulation of filth and rubbish which might  ing out lawns and gardens, and general home and civic betterment.  Although such organized co-operative effort is not possible in the rural  portions of thc West, it is none the  less important that the same work  should be earned out on every farmstead, and the united efforts of all  members of the family and thc hired  help directed to a general farm cleanup, not only around the home but all  the outbuilding. The removal of accumulated rubbish will not only improve the appearance of the place, but  it may easily be the direct cause of  preventing sickness and loss by fire.  Canada's fire loss annually is simply stupendous; it is the highest per  capita of any country in the world.  It amounts, on an average, to over  $25,00,000 a year, or at the rate of  $68,000 a day. According to statistics compiled by the National Board  of Fire Underwriters, 62 percent of  all fires start from preventable causes,  while fires of unknown origin are, it  is believed, also largely from preventable causes. This heavy fire loss  forces insurance companies to charge  extremely heavy premiums for fire  insurance, thus those innocent people  who take all possible precautions are  made to- suffer loss because, of the  carelessness of others.  Addressing a recent meeting* of the  Canadian National Safety League, one  speaker declared that experience has  shown that cleanliness about any institution would do more to prevent  fires than any other one thing. The  "rubbish habit," he declared, was a  source of constant danger.  Safety First: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; it is  better to be sure than sorry���������all of  these old adages and scores of others  of like import apply to the question of  a general spring clean-tip and thc removal of rubbish and waste of every  description. Better still, of course, is  never to allow it to accumulate, but  under certain conditions this is not  wholly possible during the winter.  There should, however, in their own  individual and even selfish interests  be a general response by all people  to the proclamations issued by ih.8.  provincial governments of the West  for "C!ean-up" week. It is not necessary to wait vmtil that date, but  individual and community houseclean-  ing should not be deferred beA-ond it.  vtsmmrmismB&&  With  EGYPTIAN LINIMENT  For Sale by all Dealers  Douglas &  Company,  Napanee.

I doctored with two different doctors and seemed to get better,  although the fainting spells would  not leave me. I would take such terrible falls, wherever I was, that it  was not safe to leave me at home at  any time. At last I decided to resort to proprietary medicines and  took several different kinds, but  seemed to receive but little benefit  from them. One day noticing the  advertisement of Miiburn's Heart  and Nerve Pills I decided to try  them, and before I had taken more  than two boxes I could see they were  helping me. I have taken about ten  boxes, and am almost cured of those  terrible spells.

The official statement of the board  reads as follows:  The Canadian wheat board feels  that some idea should be given as to  the probable value of the participation  certificates issued by the board.

Representation  Other Dominions May Ask For Privilege of Individual Ambassador  Montreal.���������A London cable to the  Montreal star says: "If Canada is permitted to establish an individual diplomatic representative in Washington,  three other great British colonies may  bc expected to ask for the same priv  ilege.    This is thc personal opinion of  thc farmers, and it is indeed difficult  several members of the foreign office  to estimate closely the quantity remaining in their hands to be marketed before the new crop. Other factors enter into the situation^ such as  the values prevailing when and as the  wheat is marketed, as well as the  quantity required for domestic use before the new crop, a late harvest making a difference of several million  bushels.  iNotvvmiiJiaiiuing uus, lUt* uuaiu estimates that it should bc able to pay  at least 40 cents per bushel against  the wheat represented by the participation certificates.

The dominions referred to are  New Zealand, South Africa and Australia.

Business Interests Throughout Country Send Resolutions to  Government  Ottawa.���������Communications from the  business interests throughout thc  country have been received by the  government favoring the bill to establish a permanent board for thc purchase of governmental and other supplies. Resolutions in approval have  been received from the boards of  trade of Vancouver, Calgary, Moose  Jaw, Medicine Hat, Saskatoon and  Winnipeg, the associated boards of  trade of British Columbia and the  Canadian Manufacturers' Association.  The point generally taken in thc question is that the establishment of such  a board would mean greater economy  in - the purchase of supplies and give  every man engaged in thc business a  fair chance to compete.  ^'~>m~y~-0    ~  B*^'W-&  ^sm*H%dy   w  &a9S-x  fart or  ���������"$���������3"^  ,-^JL_  Forced to Economize  -o  Ontario Liquor Laws  Is  Wilson Is Criticized  Registration in  ut i.   -rs^-ii  A.U   Av-cjj*ae.ci   jui  Dry Province  Winnipeg.  ���������  Registration   for  theJsc^at^intoratifi^ation ~of the "Treaty"  No Excuse at All For Prolongation,  d-L **���������    -***������T-.    -        rrr*      AT rx        .  .   -    \ji war, oays ������3*=nator  Knox  Washington.��������� Opening the debate  on his resolution to declare the state  of war with Germany and Austria at  an end, Senator Knox, Republican, of  Pennsylvania, declared in the senate  that President Wilson was arbitrarily  maintaining that the U.S. technically  was   at  war  in   order   to'coerce   the  coming provincial general election, it  is officially announced, will begin in  Winnipeg at 143 polling divisions on  May 10 and extend over the next two  days.

Continuance of the wheat board is  still looked for, in view of thc fact  that F.uropcans governments have  practically decided to stand together.  of Versailles.  "There was no excuse whatsoever  for greatly prolonging the war beyond  the signature of thc armistice," Senator Knox said, "and the only explanation for so doing was the deliberate  aim to retain all those autocratic compulsory powers, with which the executive had "been endowed for the prosecution of the war, in order that they  might be used for other purposes."  Declaring that hc entertained only  sympathy for thc president in his illness and "sympathy for the country  which must suffer under him because  of it," Senator Knox said it was an  unwelcome task to judge onc who has  fallen in public esteem."

The maximum penalty that  may be imposed under the act is increased, however, from $1,000 to $2,-  000. Either a fine or imprisonment  may be imposed at thc magistrates'  discretion.  The board of license commissioners is given a greater measure of control over the number of prescriptions  issued by physicians by being empowered to refuse to honor prescriptions  issued too promiscuously. The allowance of liquor to dentists for medicinal purposes is increased from six  ounces to one quart.

Best Medicine He  Has Ever Taken  FATHER TELLS OF SON'S HELP  FROM DODD'S MEDICINES  He Recommends Everybody Who  Has Shaking or Pain in the Heart  To Use Dodd's Dyspepsia Tablets  and Dodd's Kidney Pills.  Birmingham,    Sask.,    May   10th. ���������  Copenhagen.��������� Danish troops have  occupied Northern Schlcswig, the people of which on February 10 last, in  a plebiscite provided for in the peace  treaty, voted by a large majority for  a return of this part of the territory  to Danish nationalitj'.  The Germans had been in control  there since 1866. Enthusiastic scenes  accompanied the arrival of the Dane9  at Sonderburg. There the entire population, among them a number of aged  persons, who still remembered the  rain of German shells on the town 56  years ago, and about 50 veterans of  the war of 1864 were out to cheer  them.  A force of Danes also arrived in  Haderslef (Hadersleven) and were  welcomed by a crowd estimated to  aggregate 20,000. Danish and French  troops marched through beflagged  streets to the barracks, where, amid  great rejoicing, the German colors  were hauled down and the Danish  flag was hoisted. At Tondern, British troops were drawn up to receive  the Danes.  Admiral Sheppard, commander of  the allied occupation forces, will officially transfer the military authority  to the Danish commander at Sonderburg. ,  /C-^.:r.l\ "TV  L xJIJSCLxLLJ.      -  -  G-U.U. o x-t-trxLuizy   j. ins ano  Dodd's Dyspepsia Tablets are the  best medicines my son has ever taken."
