Tbe cause  of t-he blaze seems to have been* backfire under the boiler blowing open the  doofand the flames catching a pile of  cedar shavings which were being used  as fuel.   While the 60x30 structure  was completely destroyed it is hoped  the engine, planer -and  boiler are not  as badly damaged as they might seem.  The planer had run less than a day,  having put through  but two ears of  lumber since starting  the day before.  The loss of the planer will  halt operations at the sawmill which had just  been resumed after an overhaul.  G. A. Hunt has started operations  putting the finishing touches on the  cut off of the road at Goat Riyer Crossing, and with good weather will be  through in two weeks.

Rapid construction work was  done under the direction of C.Lsipoint,  the structure, which has a 200-foot  span, going up in less than two weeks.  They are now at work on another  bridge on a back channel west of town  which will also expedite operations.  ASQmWQUY  By OGLE VEE  Alias Pare Fool Man  Wyffsndfei  ing, by resolution, may. decide.

Mr. Adlard assured that by  the end of May at the* latest a complete report on the undertaking might  reasonably be looked for.  The question of Valley roajls was discussed at some length aud the outcome  was the instructing of the secretary to  notify the works department that the  U.F. ia not satisfied with the present  roads nor the management of them.  Mrs. M. Hagen and Mrs. E. Uri were  Creston visitors on Sunday.  Mrs. and Miss Butterfield drove to  the Payne ranch at Creston on Sunday  to see Mrs. J. C.

It is likely the amount  collected will be evenly diyided and  given to the man and lady from Canyon taking the most prizes at this  year's fail-.  The first stage in the erection of the  Canyon-soldiers' memorial was completed last week, when the United  Farmers had a bee at which the two  red oak trees were planted and Mr.  "Wearmouth given the contract of  erecting a guard around the trees as  well as a six-sided picket fence around  the guard. The. latter is of picket  construction and looks decidedly neat.  The brass tablets to be placed at the  foot of each tree will be along and  placed in a few weeks.

Ganyon City  Dr. Henderson of Creston was on  official visit at the school on Thursday  last, when he vaccinated all the pupils  that are in attendance at the seat of  learning.  The Chambers boys haye taken the  contract and started work at slashing  and burning at the W. O. Cleave  ranch. Mr. Cleave has gone to work  in the sawmill.  Mr. Ross, who arrived from the Old  Country a few days ago on a visit to  his daughter, Mrs. G. Davies, has just  been officially appointed piper for Lhe  Canyon district. Citizens generally  agree that he is equal to the best they  overheard when itconies to handling  the bug pipes.  W. G. Weiirniouth has just completed the building of an entirely new  t-rtylo drag saw machine. Ilia machine  ia one-ni.'in ontttt. that operateH auto-  maticallv, the log coining along to  place, the saw dropping where wanted  and the sawn-olf block being carried  oil' by automatic duyiccu. As a labor  saver it is certainly a wonder nnd doeH  great work. Ilu is making arrangements to secure a patent for it and  have it placed on the market.  VV. W.

The painting gang, in charge of  Bert Yerbury commenced operations  a few days ago, and despite the variable weather their work has already  brightened, up the appearance of  Lister considerably.  A second carload of brick was Unloaded the latter "part of the week, and.  considerable of it is being used for  bricking- in the boiler at the sawmill,  while any balance will be needed for  chimney construction.  The Canyon City Lumber Co, caterpillar engine is now operating on Section seven on the stump pulling job,  and making good headway at it. The  firm supply a couple of. men to handle  the machine.  The feature last Saturday night was  the meeting at the schoolhouse, ot  which it was decided to disband the  Social and Amusement Association  and turn that effort to the just organized ladies' auxiliary of the G.W.V.A.  At the close of the meeting a dance  was held with supper at midnight.  To-morrow night the bachelors are  giving what it is hoped will be the  lirst of a series of dances at the school-  house, with dancing announced to  start promptly at eight. The dance  is an inyitation alf air, and good music  will be provided, ���������>���������** well as nn excellent Biippor.  The April, meeting of Creston Board  of Trade, on Tuesday, 13th, was graced  with an attendance of seventeen mem -  bers, and business coyerihg a wide  range of . subjects was disposed of,  President Constable at the helm.  After M. J. Boyd of the Hardware  & Furniture Supply Co., Ltd., and A.  B. French of the Exchange billiard  parlors had been elected to membership, a batch of correspondence that  had accumulated since February  (there being no meeting in March due  to the flu ban) was waded into, the  same including a request to join up  with an East Kootenay publicity  scheme in which it was proposed to  employ a publicity expert at $250. a  month an expenses. Creston's assessment in this'connection to run about  $600 a year. The letter was ordered f yled.  Mrs. Maiiandaine headed a deputation from the Women's Institute that  waited  on   the board re getting on  with the investigation as to the possibility of erecting and maintaining a  hospital   in   Creston.    She  presented  some figures from Windermere, where  a hospital similar to the one suggested  for Creston was in operation, which  indicated that one of similar size and  design     would    cost   approximately  $7000, with an annual upkeep charge  of some $3000. with the only prospect  of government assistance in the way  of maintenance being on tbe basis of  patients   treated.     The   delegation's  suggestion was that the board name a  committee to act in conjunction with  representatives   from   the   Women's  Institute  and  the 'United   Farmers,  _ j   *.*���������*_���������         *a-*   j-j -*������ft_     .s '  ttnu   iruiS    n'oa   cuiu-pii-cu    wixxt, j.������x-GS3"L'S.

A communication from the Windermere district hoard of trade mentioning that it was proposed to have a  conference of East Kootenay boards  at that point in June looking to the  creation of an associated board of  trade for the Kootenay country east  of Kootenay^ Lake, was fayorably received, and -it rW-aa,decided to send .at  who'."will''^report"back hfefore any decision is come to as. to the Creston  board joining up with the new organization.

Maharg at Cranbrook it wits decided  to go a little higher this trip and write  Vice-President Coleman at Winnipeg  in this connection as well as some  other matters that Mr. Maharg seems  reluctant to meet the board to diuenss.  A press despatch that a matter of  not less than a thousand British army  officers are being brought to B.C. for  the purpose of bcttling in the Windermere country was brought to the  board's attention, and while it was  felt this* was probably n purely C.P.U,  effort to (ill up that part of the Columbia Valley and therefore difficult to  place the advantages of Creston before  these newcomers, it was decided to  eomunicate with It. F. Green. M.P.,  to do what he could with whatever department at Ottawa that m ght know  something of the movement--- of these  newcomers.

"I'm so glad to see you," said she.  "Do sit down and tell me all about  yourself." She half-closed her eyes,  and, with her head slightly aslant,  pave him a brief but solicitous examination. "Do you know, you're not  looking quite as robust as I'd hoped  to see you. I believe you're thinner  ���������and you seem lots older than when  I saw you last."  Ruggles laughed. "Can you blame  me?" he asked. "Four lively girls and  three chaperones to watch is enough  to take the fat off anybody, i guess."  "1 should think it might be," Ruth  agreed. "I'm crazy to meet them.  Mr. Falconer has been in London for  a few days, and he gave rae a good  deal of your news. So they're all engaged?"  "1 should say they were!" Ruggles  sighed. "I need a bell and blinders  to go around my house, in spite of  Miss Challand and Miss Elliot and  Darthea and Sarah. Those girls take  more watching than a Bulgarian advance column. Not that there's any  harm in them," he added hastily, "but  they're such a pack of kids���������that is,  all but  Roxana."  "You know, you're a celebrity," said  Ruth. "Have you seen the last 'Tattler'?"  "N'o," said Ruggles, "and I don't  want to. I've seen enough si!ly stuff  in the papers���������.���������.nd pictures, too. Only  last week 1 took a fresh guy's camera  awa> from him and threw it in the  wati-.r." Hc did not add that on the  vehement protest of the owner of the  ca-r.e-a he had pitched him into the  wash after his apparatus, to the inter. *c delight of the beach. Ruggles  in  the-  character of  he told you. He said that I was engaged to Cecil Townsend! Well, I'm  not���������nor ever was, nor ever will be!  Just because we rode together a few  ��������� times and he was���������well���������rather attentive, as all nice Englishmen are apt to  he to American girls like myself, some  foolish woman who writes for the society papers under the name of 'Faith,'  'Hope,' or 'Charity,' -��������� jolly good  names for them, too���������started an absurd rumor that we were engaged, or  about to be. It was all nonsense. I  wouldn't marry the Honorable Cecil  Townsend ii he were���������well���������if for my  sake he were to become a shoe clerk  in one of our stores���������say the Vienna  branch.'' She smiled maliciously at  the panting Ruggles. "If I ever marry, I'll marry some man who sees  things the way I do, and who doesn't  try to hide the act that the family fortune came from 'tryde.' My father's  in 'tryde*���������and my brother's in 'tryde,'  and I'm darn proud of it! I'm a  daughter of 'tryde,' and I don't take  any odds froni anybody! Do you get  me?"  "I sure do," said Ruggles reverently. It seemed to him that a nightingale was singing in his heart.  "Well, then," said Ruth; "put all  that Mr. Falconer told you out of your  head. He's an old dear, but he's English, and that means he's an old stupid." She glanced at her little pendant watch. "It's nearly four, and the  tide is high at four. Let's go for a  swim."  "That for me!" said Ruggles, with  such a clarion enthusiasm that Ruth  laughed.  "You seem very keen about it," said  she.  at the mere suggestion  "Oh, it's nice to be able to get in  on something in the way of sport,"  said Ruggles, wondering if Ruth really thought that it was her suggestion  of going to bathe that had so enlivened him. "Swimming and golf are  about all I can manage now, and it's  not much fun to whack a ball a couple  of hundred yards and then go limning  after it."  "But you can ride and drive a car  and sail,"--said Ruth.  Miss Eva P.

About four years ago I was  taken Jtcmhly bad with my  heart, nerves and fainting spells, and  was uC'wTi in ucii ior about six  months. 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  receive  li.������.*������1.-������      Svr  iiLl.v.       trx  -.fit  from them.

He and Ruth were constantly  together,  on   the beach  or the golf-  links,    bathing,  or running over  the  road in a  light  racing-car that  Ruggles had purchased.

Where  boys and girls clubs are in existence  club fairs are held in connection with  the school exhibition.  Last year over two hundred exhibitions by schools were held and this  year already shows a substantial advance over the number of centres organized in 1919; thc Education Department set their objective for 1920 as  250 school exhibition centres.  It is the policy of the department  of education to send at least one judge  or speaker to each of the school exhibitions held, and, with very few exceptions, judges and speakers were  provided for the exhibitions last year.  These added very greatly to the interest and the value of these gatherings.  In addition to this outside help, the  school inspectors in whose territory  the exhibition is held invariably attends, and it is largely due to their  efforts that the movement has attained its present success.

Alberta   Parmer   Receives   Contract  From U. S. Seed House  As a result of a visit of the representative of a large United States seed  company to Brooks and the surrounding district for the purpose of investigating the possibilities of growing  seed peas on the .irrigated lands of  Southern Alberta, a contract has been  placed with Henry Davis to grow fifty  acres of peas on his farm at Rosemary, Alberta, this year.  The representative of thc seed house  was very well pleased with the soil  and water conditions throughout thc  district. He visited many farmers in  thc neighborhood of Brooks, Duchess and Rosemary. If planted by  farmers who understand irrigation, he  is of the opinion that good paying  crops of peas should bc grown on the  irrigated  farms there.  Mr. Davis, with whom the contract  for thc planting of fifty acres of peas  has been made, came to Alberta from  Rigby, Idaho, where hc had had some  experience with the growing of seed  peas. Hc knows how and when to  use water to get thc best results with  this crop. Hia experiment will be  watched with great interest, and if it  turns out aa successfully as there is  reason to anticipate it will, the prow-  ing of seed peas should become general in thc district.  In the irrigated areas ot iualio considerable areas of land arc devoted to  thc growth of eced peas, which has  proved a very profitable crop, and the |  ���������handling oi thc seca i.������ an iiuiioi uuil  iiidustry.

There has been a heavy fall  of snow, which has gone off gradually,  furnishing moisture to the  soil.

Will Morning  Are 11,000 Phones in Farm Homes in  Alberta  According to the deputy minister of  railways and telephones of the provincial government, there are 11,000 telephones in farm homes in Alberta.  it is the aim of the government to  place an automatic phone in the home  of every subscriber. The government  has adopted the policy of extending  the systcm as soon as possible to districts where the service does not now  exist.  In pursuance of this policy an ambitious plan of development is being  followed this year. Miles of construction work is being undertaken for  which the government has ordered  250,000 telephone poles, onc and a  half million pounds of copper wire,  and about four million pounds of iron  wire.  During the past year ovcr two million long distance calls were handled  by thc system.  matism and many other troubles are  persistent because of weak, watery  blood and it is at this time when all  nature takes on new life that the blood  most seriously needs attention. Among those who have proved the value  of Dr. Williams Pink Pil's is Mr. Archie D. Carmichael, Tarbot, N.S., who  says:���������"For a number of years I was  bothered with pimples whiclr. would  break out on my face and body._ The  trouble was always worse in the  spring, and although I tried different  treatments, it was without much success. In the spring of two years ago  the trouble was worse than usual, and  although I was taking medicine it did  not help me until I finally decided to  try Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Under  this treatment the pimples disappeared, and there has^sincu been absolutely no return of the trouble."  Dr. Williams Pink Pills can be obtained from 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.

Average Apple Crops  The front-page story in our issue of April 9th by Dean Clement  r.st  ~ixrx  -a  r*  OJ.       Irli-C      JLJ.   VxJ.  University, on apple  production costs and, average apple production for the-province,  lias evoked a very wide discussion  of the latter phase of the article,  and it would seem that the all too  general impression prevails that  the dean was entirely too modest  in stating the average yields to be  expected���������had he increased the  figures up to 100 per cent he  would have been still too low to  suit many of the local ranchers.  In assisting to arrive at a really  definite conclusion in the premises some figures on the production situation in Creston Valley  may be useful. In the summer of  1916, Jos. Heath made a very  thorough survey of the orchards  in this section, and his report to  the government at that time was  to the effect that there were in  round numbers 100,000 apple  trees alone in this section.  At that time, too, Mr. Heath  states, 54 per cent, of the trees  were five years old or under five,  .txxixr,      +t������r������+      AJ-x     -no-n      *r������r*4Ti+        ntra-itA     T\<tt_  CCA-IVI. tllUl-U A-t-f |/*Ji VV** XI m *V   VJ. V XJX-d  tween the ages of five and ten  years. This was three years ago,  so that as at 1919 it will not be  amiss to assume that the average  age of the whole apple planting in  the Valley was at least seven  years.  Adverting to Dean Clement's  figures we find that trees seven  years old should average just over  four boxes to the tree, and on that  basis the Valley last year should  have shipped not less than 400,-  000 boxes. To the fellow who  says Mr. Clement's^ figures are  low it will come as" a surprise,  possibly, to learn that the whole  of Creston Valley last year produced less than 80,000 boxes���������or  about three-quarters of a box. to  the tree.  Nobody will question the accuracy of Mr. Heath's work, and the  crop figures for last year are  equally reliable. Instead of censure for understating the case it  would look as if" the dean were  leaving himself open to the charge  of passing out gross misinformation in an opposite direction���������at  least so far as Creston Vaiiey is  concerned.    'Nuf sed.  Municipal Suggestions  And while we are acting in an  advisory capacity to committees  might we suggest to the gentlemen from the United Farmers  and Board of Trade, who are delving into the matter of municipal  organization for the Creston Valley, or a goodly portion of it. the  possible wisdom of recommending  that in case preliminary munici-  pilization proceedings are gone  on with that it be on the distinct  understanding that if a rural  municipality is formed that the  election of councillors shall be  on the ward system plan.  That is that provision be made  that each locality shall elect at  least one representative to the  municipal council. In other words  Wynndel, Erickson, Canyon City,  Lister ami Creston shall each have  one member of council to look after their respective sections' interests.

The necessary petition has been  forwarded the department asking  that Inspector Calvert investigate  the matter and report thereon.  Severally the citizens interested  are unanimous that a school must  be provided, and are more than  willing to do their full share in  any way to secure the boon.

For 1920 it is manifest that the authorities are not  going to mail out forms, and it  is equally apparent that they are  going to be quite thorough in collecting these dues ��������� the country  needs the money, and no favorites  are going to be played. The best  policy to pursue is tp get the  forms from the postmaster, go  through them carefully and if  then satisfied you are not liable  do not bother sending in your  returns.

By the more intensive  loading of cars there will be a reduction in the cars to be hauled, which  means a greater number of cars for  distribution to the various shippers  throughout tho country.  Two or three years ago the public  was asked to co-operate with the railways  in an en*(leavor to prevent car  shortage  by  the   heavier  loading  of  cars   and   shippers    everywhere    responded to this appeal with the result  that in the year 1918 the average load  per car on the Canadian Pacific was  6.54, thc highest in tho history of the  Company,  but during  the  past  year  the  results have  not been as  satisfactory.

It j  affects the credit of our people, stops  railway development, cripples business  and imposes heavy burdens upon municipalities and governments. Something better than the provision of temporary relief to the direct sufferers  must be found;  Those who are perhaps best qualified to judge, believe the only solution is to be found in a radical change  in farming methods in these districts,  and the substitution of other crops,  in part at least, for the all grain crops  ���������which have, for the most part, been  attempted in the past. It is asserted  that even in these drought afflicted  areas, a few farmers have been able  to succeed, where the majority have  failed, by reason of the fact that they  followed other methods.  in the years of drought, there was  not  only   failure of  grain  crops,  but  also of grass, with   the    result    that  there was neither food for man  nor  feed for stock.    On  the other hand,  jsome farmers were successful even in  ��������� these   years   of   lack   of   moisture   in  'raising green corn and other kinds of  ifeed for stock when even the grasses  failed.    What  they  succeeded in   doing, their neighbors could also do.  It is suggested, therefore, and wisely it would seem, that steps shouid be  taken to bring the actual experience  of these men, and the methods followed by them, to the knowledge of  the people generally in the districts  referred to, not by books or pamphlets, but by these men telling the  story of their experiences and success  to groups of farmers throughout these  space would permit cf even a mere areas,  recapitulation of these varied and It is also being urged that the corn-  complex problems, not to speak of anlbined knowledge of the agricultural  intelligent consideration of even a few | experts   of   the   country^  should   be  oi them.

Others, again,  would lay emphasis upon the assimilation of the foreign-born into a broad  and true Canadian citizenship. Better  schools and a more general education  for all classes would be advocated.

It was pointed out that the acreage under  flax  has been   more  than  doubled  since the  start  of  the war,  and the quality of the Canadian seed  and fiber demonstrated   not   only    in  Ireland, but all over  the world.    In  view of this it is proposed to encourage   the   establishment    of    spinning  mills in Canada on a large scale; also  to bring experienced   weavers to Canada  from   Ireland   and  start   the   industry  on  a sound basis.

Hi*  statement has been daily waited and  was followed with interest by all sides  of the house.  He gave in detail the financial result of the year's operations, outlined  the needs,, of the road in the future;  stated their program for the coming  year. It discussed the vital question  of thc suggested increase in freight  rates.  The year's work showed an operating deficit on government roads of  $14,000,000, namely; Canadian Northern, $6,500,000; I.C.R. and Transcontinental.. $7f500.000. To this there ba������  been added $19,000,000 for fixed charges or a total deficit for the year (including fixed charges) of $33,000,009.  In comparison the operating deficl-l  of the roads in 1918 (the Canadian  Northern was then in private hands)  was $2,134,000.  Revenue, too, had advanced nearly  $12,000,000.

There were 92 miles still to be laid.  The total expenditures of the railway  at the end of the last fiscal year was  $13,890,387 and on the terminals $6,-  344,490.  The estimated cost of completing  the track-laying into Port Nelson  was $1,750,000, but to complete thc  railway would require $4,000,000.  had increased from $84,000,000 to  practically $108,000,000. The advance  in operating expenses were largely due  to increases in wages granted under  the McAdoo award.  In all this, however, Dr. Reid did  not take the Grand Trunk Pacific (oi  which the governnipn? is ������������ po?**-?-  sion as receiver) into account. The  Grand Trunk Pacific, Dr. Reid intimated, would be the subject of another  statement later, but he indicated a total loss to the road last year of $14,������  rtnn rtrtn    ���������     d-** -.. _,      d-\. ..������..;���������_      1^.^  viuu.vuu, as iuiiuws; vpciranug SOSS,  $5,500,000; fixed charges, $S,5G0,CG0.  Thus deficit on all lines for th������  year, including the G.T.P., including  both capital charges and operating  loss, totalled $47,000,000.  From deficits Dr. Reid passed to  suggest increases in freight rate*. It  is in this regard, probably that hia  whole statement will awaken tha  widest public interest. There waa th**.  point to be considered, he said, that  any increase of rates on government  lines would apply equally well to thQ  Canadian Pacific Railway. Should  therefore, Dr. Reid asked, freight  ratcs^bc generally increased for ths  particular purpose of enabling th*  Canadian National railway system to  meet operating expenses and fixed  charges? An increase of say 25 per  cent, in rates would mean an additional charge on the public of $88,000,000,  approximately.

McCullough,  the   well-known  Nelson   water   rights   ongineer,   was  here     this   week     making    a    survey of the pipe line of the Erickson  Water Users' Community, which   is  nutting in an irrigation system  with  Sullivan Creek for supply.

Cooper of the Kootenay garage,  Cranbrook, was a business visitor ^here  at the end of the week. He reports a  great demand for the tourist booklet  "Seeing the Canadian Rockies," in  which Creston board of trade is interested, as it among other matters sketches tbe road from Crowsnest to Creston, with a writeup of all the towns  along the route. 10,000 booklets haye  been issued and al������*eady there are enquiries for.at least 2000 of them.        ���������������������������..������������������*.  R. L. T. Galbriath of Fort Steel, the  well-known Kootenay Indian agent,  was here at the end of the week, along  with Father "Lambot, making preliminary arrangements for the election of  a new chief to succeed Dominic Luke,  who was carried off iu the flu epidemic  in March. It is expected the voting  will take place quite late in the sum-  iner, with the prospect of three candidates making the running in Dominic,  White Louie and Andrew David.  Those unable to account for the  sprightly step and exhuberant spit-it  displayed by Mayor Little the last few  days are reminded that the most  likely cause is to be found in the fact  that Creston celebrated her twenty-  eighth birthdoy on Saturday, and as  the mayor happens to be one of the  original two first citizens it was but  natural that ofncbil dignity may have  heen a bit lacking. In the early nineties folks thought.the mayor was craxy  in predicting that the Crow line would  be built. The mayor now stakes his  reputation as a reader of the future by  ir&x News.  w-f        s  mm       -I -  ~r or a jvsonsnzv  !
