Pargee left for his ranch in  Saskatchewan on Monday. J. Bellamy and family pulled out for Alberta  on Sunday.  Mrs. E. Butterfield and son, Ebward,  were week-end visitors at Proctor,  returning on Monday.  Mrs. E. B. Sutherland left for hsr  home in Vancouyer on Wednesday,  accompanied by her son', James.  They had been taking in the activities  of the berry season.  The big red berries are done again  for another season and we,are sorry to  report this year's yield on most  ranches was little better than half a  crop. Of the whole community John  Bathie and Joe Wigen have made the  best showing. Raspberries are now  inoying fast, and are realizing the best  prices in the history of the Co-Operative Association.  James Bnttertield of Balfour paid a  visit to his parents on Tuesday, returning the following day. He is  leaying Balfour for the coast at the  end of the week.  Quite a party took in the big show  at Creston on Monday night* and all  agreed it was the   best   show seen at  going down fast the swimmers have  to get out beyond the weeds.  Mr. Dewar, Mr. Williams, Sam  Moon and Ken. Dewar spent the  week-end on a fishing trip at Summit  Creek. Tney report very poor fishing  and the fish small.  Wally Johnson went to Kitchener  on Saturday on a fishing trip. We  hear he found the fishing none too  good, bnt ran into a real fine time at  the dance in that town on Saturday  ~x.rm-.t-  *ttft,*tu.  Most of the farmers now have their  berries cut down and burned, and  again being cultivated���������hoping for a  better crop next year.  Sirdar  wfesiron  in   severa**.  i**va  dance billed for Friday night in town  will also likely draw a crowd from  here.  Misses Wallace and Callaghan left  for their homes in Fernie on Monday,  and remarked they were glad to get  away on account of the mosquitoes.  Mr. and Mrs. Proctor of Battrum,  Sask., who have been guests of Mr.  and Mrs. Loasby the past three weeks,  left for home on Thursday. The mos-  quitoe invasion cut their visit short  by at least a week.  Mr, and Mrs. Jack Cameron were  Sunday visitors at Creston, making  the trip in their Ford.  Mrs. Dennes and young son were  visitors with Nelson friends a few  days last weeks  The report is current here that  Messrs. Cogle and Leake of Proctor  have the contract for the Kuskanook  wharf, and are to start work at once.  The work on the Sirdar-Kuskanook  road is also due to start about the  middle of August.  A couple of extra construction  crews were working out of here last  week. One was re-laying the steel in  the curves, while the other was putting in new poles and otherwise fixing  Harry Bathie and Ken Dewar played on the Creston baseball team  against Porthiil on Sunday, but even  with their assistance Creston was  unable to put over a win.  *���������������     t-  s^ X..       x r*     - ������- '--���������:-*. ikl������tpth<j telegraph lme,  now left, "and Wyntidet is mitsc mere-  settling down to its usual placidity for  another year.   /"'  Representatives of the A.

W. V. Jackson, ^chairman of the  prize list committee, submitted the  complete list of awards for the 1920  exhibition, which after- a very thorough discussion wsis adopted as submitted. A perusal of it shows it to  be positively the best in the fall fail's  history. In addition to the regular  premiums, which in several cases have  been made bigger than last year, there  is a fine lot of special prizes scattered  throughout the fifteen classes���������and  not one of them payable in books,  magazines or other goods that have  not proved attractiye as prizes in the  past two years. ������������������:���������' Ih addition to the  regular and special offerings no less  than eight silver cups are offered for  competition���������four in tha fruit department, two in the** cattle, and one each  in horses, poultry and vegetables.  The list* will .be turned into the nrinter  at once, and the book of awards should  be ready for distribution at ihe middle  of August. r  The grounds committee, consisting  of Messrs. G. Johnson, F.

Fitzgerald got rather badly  shaken up and internally injured on  Wednesday morning, while attempt-  ing to control a horse attached to a  ston<**boat carrying a barrel of water,  which shied at a passing automobile  in the neighborhood of the Truscott  corner. The injured man was brought  immediately to town where Dr* Henderson attended to him.  Elsewhere in this issue will be found  tbe regulations governing the new  lights wiih which autos and motor  cycles are to be equipped. Car owners  have been slow in complying with  these regulations but it is announced  that after August 15th the new regulations will be strictly enforced. Both  the Bev.'.n and Lidgate Bros, garages  can supply the new lights.  Provincial Police Vaehon on Saturday gathered in a couple of suspicious  characters in Joe Stearns and H.

Even in far away Egypt it is impossible to forget the Creston Valley.  T. M. Edmondson last week had a  letter from S. Chapman, who left here  a dozen years ago, and who is now  resident in the land of pyramids, in  which he states he is making ready to  return here, and saking for information on the development of the district since his departure about 1008.

Millington is the  third member of the board, and Mr.  Aspell the auditor.  Vine. Liddicoatt has been in charge  of the carpenter work on the new  30 x 20 foot addition to the school. It  is hoped to haye the--new room finished and equipped by the time school  opens in September.  Jack Head, who is one of the first to  tackle bee keeping, has just cleared  one of bis hives for the first time, and  reports taking 75 pouhds of honey,  which is certainly a good showing,  more especially for a beginner.  After running on a cut of lumber  for the shacks and some fencing, the  mill is now busv turning out the  better grades of stuff, which will be  used in the construction of the permanent houses.  The carpenters have just started  work on a comfortable Svo^rooBa  house which will be -occupied by Geo.  Jacks on his permanent location.  COMPANY  Messrs. Johnson*, Bevan, and  Allen i-bor  of   Mr. Schade, who, last   week  B. B. STAPLES, doing husi-  ness under the name of the  Staples Fruit Company, solicits  the handling of your fruit and  vegetable shipments on either  an "outright purchase" or on a  commission basis.  In making this bid for your  patronage we make no extravagant claims as to our ability to  get long prices, but wish to point  out that in the handling of  perishable crops experience and  hard work are essential if we  aro to get even average results.  We guarantee to give yon  value in selling effort for every  cent of commission we propose  to collect, and believe that we  havo a knowledge of markets  and economical methods of  handling fruit that will be invaluable to the district under  thc conditions which havo arisen  this season.

The skeeters are also  responsible for materially thinning  out the flock of tourists that had been  rusticating at Sirdar.  Fireman Crosby of the yard engine  was a visitor at Nelson a few days last  week.  Mrs. Jones of Kuskanook was here  on Wednesday, en route to Creston.  While g.irden truck is much earlier at  that point than here, she admits that  tree fruits at any rate Sirdar is a  couple of weeks in adyance of Kuskanook.  Sid McCabe was a week-end visitor  with Cranbrook friends���������bidding a  tender farewell to Supt. Maharg, who  is due to leave for the coast this week.  Miss Hazel Goodman, who has been  attending high school at Cranbrook  the past year, was succesdful in the  recent   examinations at  that centre.  H. J. Whiteside, who has heen  working at Idaho points the past year,  was a guest of his uncle, B. Whiteside,  at the hoarding house a few days  before returning to Michigan.  Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Loasby are leaving this week for roast points wliere  they will spend their usual summer  vacation this year.  and they will shortly be ip-jaking the  usual canvass of tbe ranchers and  business men in connection with the  fair. Word has been received from  the department at Victoria that this  year's grant will not be over $250, so  with the bigger and better prize list  along with the improvements to the  grounds the finance committee are  hoping for a generous response when  they make their rounds.  In connection with this year's fair it  is proposed to have a programme of  sports of yarious sorts and the newly-  organized athletic association will' be  asked to handle this feature of the  day. In the evening the association  will also give a dance, and have secured Mercantile Hall for that et-ening,  along with the services of the Creston  orchestra.  Ladies and gentlemen to supervise  the different classes at the exhibition  were named, and these are being communicated with to ascertain their willingness to act. An added feature to  the 11)20 fair will be the school district's display in which Lister, Canyon  City, Alice Siding, Wynndel and Cres  ton school boards have all donated the  necessary prize money, and a varied  and attractive showing is anticipated.  coim������ifctee*lj!������?Q[u-':re<i the  east half of the   same  "*"  ' *"-      L.Lji.'LA^j^jl-f'~~~r^0m':-0^r.rd^rt,.:  /-I.,   ���������ovum**  ��������� .."11-  i.irllk  market in;/; problem*-:.

He was accompanied on the trip by T. W. Bundy.  Although in quite precarious health  it is confidently hoped he will be successfully treated -and come bacu  shortly in his former good health.  A feature brand new to the work of  Creston Masonic Lodge was witnessed  on Wednesday night when Past  Grand Maetcr Schofield of Trail made  an omcial yisit for tde purpose of conducting the ceremonies in connection  with the installation of W. Bro. S. A.  Speers as D.D.G.M. for District No. 8.  In addition to thi-s work a third degree was also conferred, and at the  close there was the customary banquet  spread and toasts.

With thc organization of a local at  Lister on Friday night.Creston Valley  has now five branches of the United  Farmers of B.C., with a total membership of about 250.  With ii graduating class of half a  dozen at the high sehool, and with  but eight passing the Entrance, Creston high school will amply accommodate all the local pupils likely to  attend the higher neat of learning.  With an annual fee of $50 it is not  like-lv ihe attendance from other  schools will be heavy.

The late afternoon sunlight  was streaming through the uncovered  window, catcssing softly thc lined,  peaceful face of the old trapper who  lay asleep.  For a long time the Algonquin  stood looking down, his face showing  nothing of thc conflict in his hot  heart.    Thei- h**** c-rol.*-*?-.-���������   "The fires of the forest blacken and  char what they destroy; but. the souls  of the trees that vanish linger always  in the scented aisles of the forest  The frost that chills the flowers to  their long sleep lines their lips with  a smile of peace.

Dorkin watched hirn, and  then suddenly his mind reverted to  the box which had been stolen. Hc  opened his lips to speak. Then he  shook his head, as though reconsidering. Surely the Indian's heart was  hot enough already. He came forward at the motion of the Indian, aud  together they carried the dead man  out into the waning daylight.  Dannie had marked out the grave  beneath the big oak. Willow sat on  a log, her elbows on her knees, her  face in her hands. All about, in tree-  tops and shrub, the voices of thc  wild choristers trilled and warbled in  an ecstasy of life and freedom. Far  out above the shaggy tree-tops the  crimson streamers of dying day  gleamed, and drew, back, and wove a  tapestry of splendor above the hills.  The rainbow had melted behind the  gold in the west. The angels had put  up the bars behind Old Creation.  By the time the grave was ready,  the dead man committed to it with a  few words by Dorkin, and .the sweet-  smelling earth filled in, thc lights in  the west had died to a long splash  of mauve-lined drab and gold. Then  swiftly this light went out and with  it the wild chorus of the birds. Upon  the forest rested the spirit of the  Great Silence.  Suddenly upon the stillness the  voice of a violin stole like the voice  of a zephyr that has been imprisoned  in a pocket of the forest and strays  through the shadowed aisles when all  the twilight winds have folded thcir  wings. ~  Softly the strains rose until the  whole wild world seemed to wake to  thc song, which the violin was singing. Then the music died away, and  the world grew very still again. By  and by thc shadows deepened, and  tow above thc forest the big stars  came out faintly, glowing deeper as  the shadows deepened, until with the  fulness of the night they swam and  sang close down above the tree-tops.  From a near-by copse a whip-poor-  will whistled and night life awoke in  the deep forest. A fox barked from  a far upland and was answered by his  mate from another upland. From thc  marshlands of Dag woo Valley, the  frogs voiced their gladness. An owl  hooted from the hardwoods; from the  lake marshes came the soft quacks of  feeding ducks.  And through the scented dusk Dorkin led the boy anjd girl home with  him to the Retreat in ihe Hardwoods. "*���������  hc  in-  rin  from the city.  "We're nigh home now,"  formed them, twisting abou'  pleasantly at his passengers.  The girl laughed a silvery little  laugh, and threw back the wraps from  her throat.

Probably you are not aware how  little fish Canadian people use.  Great Britain is one of the greatest  fish consuming countries in the  world.

AUtnOrs or jwauonai Aninems  Sir Adolphe Routhier, who died on  Sunday night, won his place in the  Hall of Fame as thc author of "O  Canada." Alexander Muir, thc venerable author of "The Maple Leaf Forever," died in Toronto about a dozen  school teacher. Routhier was a Cath-  | msned jurist; Muir a much loved  school teacher. Ruthicr was a Catholic; Muir an Orangeman. Musically  "O Canada" is conceded to be the  finest song of thc two and its acceptance in Quebec is general. "The  Maple Leaf Forever" will doubtless  continue *to be played and sung for  many years to come.���������Ottawa Journal. ������-���������*-*-������"  S...

Every C.P.R. employee enlisting  for war service was told that "his  job would bc waiting for him when he  came back." Up to June authenticated statistics show that 11,018 C.P.R.  men joined thaforccs. Of these, 1,096  were killed in action or died of  wounds or sickness while with the  colors;. 2,084 were incapacitated by  wounds, leaving 7,838 presumably available for re-engagement in thc company's services. Some of these, however, re-enlisted with the permanent  forces; others chose to remain in  England or former other business  connections. -The remaining 6,914  arc all again working for the company*, fn addition to thus establishing its own man-power contribution  to the war requirements, the company  since the armistice wa3 signed ha*s  employment for 10,726 other return*  ed soldiers not previously on its payroll and now musters 17,640 war veterans���������enough to form a complete  army division of four brigades. All  lines of the Canadian National Railways sj'stem gave up 5,000 odd men,  about 50 percent of whom have been  re-established.  Making Good Progress  With  Cattle DIddIus!  i  A Thorough Pill.��������� To clear the  stomach and bowels of impurities and  irritants is necessary when their action is irregular. The" pills that will  do this work thoroughly are Par=  melee's Vegetable Pills, which are  mild in action but mighty in results.  They purge painlessly and -effectively, and work a permanent cure. T-hey  can be used without fear by the most  delicately constituted, as there are no  painful effects preceding their gentle  operation.  Hope to Eliminate Mange In Affected Areas  Shortly.  The first stage of the compulsory  dipping order for cattle in mange-  affected areas in southern Alberta  and southwestern Saskatchewan has  been completed, according to word  received by Dr. George Hilton, chief  veterinary inspector for the Dominion, who is supervising thc move by  which the federal department of agriculture hopes to practically eliminate mange within the next six or  'eight   weeks.  All cattle in the area designated  were ordered to be dipped and work  started on June 24, the total number  of vats used being 88. Within a few  days 12 more had been added. Dr.  Hargraves, of Medicine Hat, who is  assisting with the work, reports that  practically every stock owner had  .given the department their fullest  co-opeTation, Weather conditions  were perfect, Range-riders engaged  by the department covered the territory to see that stragglers were  brought in behind the general  round-ups.

The covenant of the League of  Nations places .upon all governments  which are signatories to that cov-  enant~the duty of establishing, on a  sure foundation, the noble work of  the Red Cross. Formerly ^active only  in time of war, it is now to continue  its work in time of peace, and in the  words of the League of Nations'  covenant, "to encourage and pro-*.  mote the establishment and co-operation of duly authorized voluntary  national Red Cross organizations,  having as purposes the improvement  of health, the prevention of disease  and the mitigation of suffering  throughout the world."  To Mr. Kerr is entrusted the task  of carrying out this program so far  as thc Province of Saskatchewan is  concerned.  NOURISHING FOOD  ND GOOD HOURS  Levelling Down Process  Carl Ackerman, a reliable press  correspondent, cables from England  that many factories arc closing down  there because of thc continued demand of thc workers for higher  wages, and the reduced purchasing  power of llic public. And of course  lhc more unemployment there is the  less will hc the purchasing power.

You  weaken this power when you let  your general health run down, your  blood gets thin and your nerves un-  ������teady.  You weaken it when you worry,  when you over-work, when you do  not get sufficient sleep, and when you  are under-nourished, either because  you do not eat the right kind of food  or because your digestion is out of  order.  You preserve your power to resist  disease when you keep good houre  and eat proper food at regular intervals. You further increase and  strengthen resistance to disease when  you build up your blood and nerves  by the occasional use of a tonic like  Dr. Williams Pink Pills, which are  free from opiates and harmful drugs  of any kind. The value of these pills  as a health builder is fully shown by  the experience of Mrs. \ZZZ. C.

Hayes, Editor and Owner,  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JULY 30  What may be termed tbe theoretical side of the District Nurse  question has been very clearly stated in the paper read by Mrs.  Downs to the "Women's Institute,  and whieh was reproduced in our  last issne.  Hardly anyone could have read  it and not be convinced that such  a nurse could render good service  in a quite widely scattered and  growing commuuity liks Creston  Valley even in normal times. Just  how much more valuable her services would be if the district is to  be visited with flu outbreaks (or  other epidemics) such as we had in  1918 and again this j'ear it would  be almost impossible to overestimate.  Concerning the practical���������or  financial���������side of tbis same District  Nurse proposition precise information is lacking, but after a careful  survey of local conditions generally  it has been figured that a guaran-  require that the government's $35  be held as a sort of emergency fund.  There is only one source from  which this <sp2G0 a month ean eome  and that is by voluntary contributions from the people in the area to  be served, which, we presume, will  be the Wynndel, Alice Siding,  Creston, Erickson, Canyon City  and Lister school districts.  As the nurse will be at the service of all it is not unreasonable to  expect that everyone should be  willing to contribute���������and the fellow with the family at least equally  generously as those not so blessed���������  to say nothing of the unmarried  adults in the community.  With Mrs. Downs' statement as  ter tain men ts of any sort to raise  money. ~A District Nurse is a  direct voluntary charge on the  community���������an obligation it is  neither feasible or .desirable to discharge by other than cash guarantees, paid at least quarterly.  to benefits to be derived from a  District Nurse, and this financial  statement of the ease, the committee in charge bespeaks your immediate and careful consideration of  tbe whole matter as it is desired to  at once ascertain if the needed  guarantee can be secured, and if so  to immediately proceed to secure  such nurse for Creston Valley.  & V&rong idem  i.  ~*j-vr\r\  tee or ^uu a  iiioiitxi   is easentitii ii  the work  is to be  carried on successfully.  $125 a month is required for the  nurse's salary.

Tele-  UQ^U m,-*Jl  "The question * of payment  rests with the committee appointed for that purpose. Usually the public individually  guarantees to pay so much  each per year. The different  organizations���������board of trade,  church guilds, women's institute���������pledge themselves to a  certain sum annually in recognition of the public service  rendered by the nursing oagan-  ization."  phone, light, heat  and   water  are      With   the  financial side   of   the  ������-v*1-Viqt������ ivi/**liar-icir-icaii������]������ae:    -wItmo   if*, ia  a.lar.

And, finally, there  will be transportation;, expenses  which, of course, will be in proportion to the territory it is proposed  to have the nurse cover.  The^only outside help that may  be looked for to partially meet this  expense bill is a grant from the  provincial department ��������� of health.  So far as our information goes this  donation will not exceed $35 a  month���������and will likely be less in a  district such as this.  Even with a $35 grant, when allowance is made for the inevitable  quota of ready-promising but slow  and non-paying guarantors, if due  cemsideration is given tlie foregoing  expense items it must be conceded  an objective of not less than $200 a  month is nejt a bit too ambitions.

Local  Farmers are working out a plan to secure an accurate estimate of the various crops in time to advise members  as to-,the crop situation not only in  British Columbia but throughout Can-  What has'all the earmarks of being  the most active and all-round successful local of   the   United Farmers of  British Columbia���������of the five now-in  esistehee in Creston Valley���������was organized ar Lister, at a largely attended  gathering of the soldier farmers on  Friday night.   Col. Lister was chosen  chairman of the session, with Norman  Stones '-as secretary, and the speaker  of the evening was J. M. Humphrey  of Al&lakwaV the provincial organizer.  In opening. Mr.-Humphrey corigrat-  ulatedthe soldiers on  haying located  in the Valley.    After a  tour of B.C.,  in which he had coyered almost 7000  miles of it. Mr. Humphrey had seen  n o fin er con ri try than Creston Valley  aspecially  if  water for   irrigation   \���������  made aynilabla.     He recognized the  first two or three years might be an  uphill fight, but his adyice was not to  "down tools" too hastily.    By pegging  away  industriously   failure   was   impossible here.  After sketching the early history of  the United Farmer movement in B.C.,  which had now attained a membership of over 4000, Mr. Humphrey discussed the larger co-operatiye ideas of  the organization., citing the Fraser  Valley Milk Producers' Association  which was the best organization of the  kind on the North American continent  and through which tbe farmers secured the highest possible price for their  milk products, while at the same time  the consumers got their milk cheaper  than  in  any part of Canada except  r\.X.x~....

The speaker pointed out that the average farmer does  not figure out the cost of production,  and that to tiis'ktibwledge at least two  farmers have contracted to deliver potatoes nest* fall at $25 per ton, while  the average cost of production will  run from $35 to" $40 per ton owing to  the high cost of seed and labor. It is  the intention of the U.F. to keep its  members informed on such things for  it is realized that the farmer must get  a living wage; and if he is prosperous  the merchant is prosperous���������for true  prosperity starts with the soil.  The speaker urged all the farmers to  become members of the great organization, to take part in the regular  monthly meetings, forget their little  differences and take a keener interest  in the public affairs of the district, the  province and the dominion, and through their united efforts make Canada  a truly great country.  ���������The Land  Settlement Board  came  under fire by the organizer, and it was  suggested that the only way farmers  could ever hope to get cheap money to  develop the farm lands of the province  would be by becoming strongly organized and  with the assistance of the  other organized farmers of Canada request the federal government to sell  farm Joan bonds the same as the United States government has been doing.  Mr. Humphrey condemned the government for allowing transcontinental  railways to   charge higher   rates in  B.C. than  in  other parts of Canada;  the higher cost of building, he stated,  was well paid for at   the beginning  and the increased cost of operation is  more than made  up by the wouderful  attractions of the  mountains drawing  tourists fronj  all oyer the world and  -  creating traffic for the eastern  lines.  I  There should  bs a uniform rate oyer-  Canada, and  the only way to get it ie  to become  strongly organized and  in  this case join hands with the boards of  trade of the cities so that B.C. can put  up a solid front in demanding what is  justly due.  The Canadian Council of Agriculture  was discussed at some length by Mr.  Humphrey and' it'was clearly shown  that, while certain interests endeavoring to keep the fruit growers out, that  if they wished to protect their particular interests it would be necessary for  thorn to have the strength of the U. F.  B.C. behind them.   .  The statements of certain public men  that the farmers movement meant  class legislation the speaker deplortd.  and suggested that if these same men  would look up statistics they would  Hnd that the lawyers of Canada, representing only one-fifth of- one per  cent, of the yoting population have 25  per cent, of the representatives in parliaments, while the farmers, representing over 56 per cent, of th������ yoting  population have less than 18 per cent,  of the representatives of parliament,  in spite of the large number of farmer  members in Ontario and the middle  west.  Touching upon the water question  Mr. Humphrey urged that all the  United Farmer locals in the Valley  should act unitedly in the matter of  irrigation, to secure one system that  would take care of the whole community. Referring to tho proposed  system at Canyon he feared that the  installation of a system that only took  care of but a minor portion of the  present population, and made no provision for newcomers would cause  moro discontent and other troubles  than the pilomotors anticipated.  Hits closing icwiiukb uoio to Lhc  effect that the United Farmers was a  movement that Canada would very  shortly stand in need of; it was the  only organization that could hinielU-  the present dangeroiJH labor situation  as well as tho menace of the financial  interests.  A. It. Swanson, a director of the  Canyon local, v.-a a called upon for a L-vv  remarks, and devoted bin energies to  pointing out the ni'ceHHiLy and advantages of irrigation.

The organization of the  branch at taster under such favorable  auspices pretty effectively answers  the claim sometimes made that the returned men ai-e not interested in the  United Farmers. Certainly at Lister  the soldier farmers anticipate the  organization being the one organization that can be of particular assistance to them in coping with practically all their problems.  There would appear to be some demand for Canadian wised up clergymen in England.    Rev. Mr. Laycock,  English church rector at Vernon, is  going to England to stay, next month.

Union "Government, which was  brought into being through the efforts  of Sir Robert Borden as a war administration late in 1917, having fulfilled its destiny, has passed away;  Sir Robert Borden has laid down the  responsibilities of thc premiership,  and these have been placed on thc  younger shoulders of Hon. Arthur  Meighen, who is not only tlie young-  OCf       TV tr* *x i-v������ 4 <x m~       r"/\ti Or-ln        **vm P\ *~       . ������ r-. -A l^-d*.       nl  ���������X,****!.      jey x  -V1U1V4 vuuaun       \~.\\.X        XlClU-y        L/tlC       Cmf  so thc first man from west of tho  Great Lakes to achieve that high office. His Government will be representative of the new political organization which supercedes the Conservative and Unionist parties in Federal  politics and which has been named  the National Liberal and Conservative Party. In addition io Sir Robert  Borden, Hon. N. W. Rowell and  Hon. Martin Burrell retire from the  Government; consequently the first  test of the strength of the new administration with the public will  come with the election of the new-  ministers to bc chosen.  A second change of moment was  the resignation of Sir Lomer Gouin  from the premiership of Quebec, an  office he. has he-Id for the past fifteen years, and a longer period than  any of his predecessors. Sir  Loiucr's retirement docs not mean  any marked change in thc Quebec  Government.

With te~n members  to be elected out of a list of 41 candidates nominated, and with 48,000  ballots cast, the new system was given the hardest test yet applied to it  in any English-speaking country, and  the successful outcome would seem  to point to its early adoption throughout Canada.  As indicating that there has been  little change in the war-time sentiment of people on thc questioi}. of  New Brunswick referendum is of interest. Two questions were submitted to thc electorate: (1) Whether  the prohibition laws should bc to-  tained, importation stopped, and a  bone-dry condition created, or (2)  whether the sale of wines and beer  should be permitted. By a vote of  three to two the people declared  against thc sale of wines and liquor,  and by a two-to-one vote emphatic-  all^r     rf-nfwA cxA      ill n:?*-*  preference     for  absolute prohibition of the traffic in  intoxicants for beverage purposes.  While the people of Canada have  thus been engaged in their own political affairs, in the United States the Republican and Democratic parties haves  adopted their platforms for the presidential elections next November and  named their candidates. A clear-cut  issue on thc Peace Treaty and  League of Nations is now presented  to the American people, and the  voters wiii tncmseives ticciac inc  issue, the Republicans bitterly con-  dcitinin^ *-hc acts -^-f Pi**������<?i'-fr>t-,. -\A7*jio.-.*.  at the Peace conference, and the  Democrats upholding the League of  Nations as necessary for the future  preservation of the peace of the  world. While not concerned in the  essentially domestic policies of the  United States, Canadians will follow  with keen interest the struggle for  and against acceptance by the United  States of a place in the League of  Nations and as a co-partner with the  other civilized peoples of the world  in maintaining the highest international ideals.  Minard's Liniment Relieves Distemper.  Horses in Saskatchewan  (Buffalo Express)  Saskatchewan is generally associated in the mind with cold weather  and wheat. It is surprising to learn,  therefore, that it leads the Canadian  provinces in horse population, there  being a total of 1,078,000.  Saw Possibilities  In Experiment  Liverpool Dockmastcr Evolved  Principle of Modern Lighthouse  Sometimes during the latter part  of the eighteenth century a scientific person of London made a wager  that he would read a newspaper by  the light of a "farthing dip" at a  distance of 30 feet. To do this the  scientist merely coated 4he inside of  a shallow box with sloping pieces  of looking glass so as to form a  concave lens, put his farthing dip into the box and readily deciphered  the small print at the stipulated distance. The experiment was witnessed by a Liverpool dockmaster. He  was a thinking man and saw great  possibilities In this learned jest. He  straightway adapted the principle to  lighthouse requirements and forthwith the modern reflected light with  its mile of range and greatly muti-  plicd life-saving powers sprang into  being.  it Hawk, Blow,  Sneeze, or Cough  T       ii f  x       L   _ *>  se   i/aiarriiozoiie  When germs attack the lining of  the nose, make you sneeze and gag���������  XtrVll^ri    I2.trr.f-    Qt*.    the"***    lT\f*r><--'*'    th*7*    ^**-*���������--*,*"*;���������  chial tubes���������how can you follow them  with a cough syrup?

Provincial Paper Mills Will Spend a  Million and a Half on  Undertaking.  Port Arthur will be the scene of  important developments in paper  manufacture when the plans are completed of thc Provincial Paper Mills,  Limited, Toronto, who have just  been incorporated. About $1,500,000  is estimated to bQ the amount to be  spent in Port Arthur. The plant,  which occupies 140 acres in the city  of Port Arthur, has turned out about  $2,000,000 of sulphite, which has been  sold in thc United States," chiefly in  Wisconsin and Minnesota...It is now  intended to complete the product into paper on this side, with a mill to  turn out forty tons a dayf With the  expenditure of $500,000 on thc mill,  absorbed by the new company, these  productions will be increased.  Worms in children, if they be not  attended to, cause convulsions, and  often death. Another Grave's worm  exterminator will protect the children from these distressing afflictions.  ::' ,1:  it.'1  : ��������� .1 , ri.

What is more, thc balance-sheet eif lhe* bank never includes  the site and the buildings as an asset,  though if these were in thc possession of any other company they  would probably be included as worth  anything up to 10,000,000 pounds.  Hut the bank's position ia so secure  ihat if i-ati affeiiel '0 neglect e*von  such a great asset.  To'Further Lignite Project  Additional Grant of $200,000 Made to  Saskatchewan.  Briquet ting  Plant.  To meet the increased cost of construction of the lignite briquetting  plant an additional appropriation o������  $200,000 has been made. This makes  the total vote for the plant $600,0p0.  Of the additional vote, $100,000 is  being provided by the federal government, the governments of Saskatchewan and Manitoba dividing the  other $100,000 between them. This is  the same ratio as the original vote.   '  The lignite uutilization board has  found it impossible to complete the  project on the original grant of $400,-  000. A recent estimate shows the total cost will be about $600,000, exclusive of housing. In order to compare  these prices with the original estimate of $400,000, the board snsde a  careful enquiry into the price of the  present contemplated plant had it  been erected in 1917, thc date at  which thc original research council  report was prepared. The result was  a total estimate of $390,000, which  shows that the present designs are  no more elaborate than were contemplated  originally.  The Hon. Arthur Meighen agreed  that the federal government would  contribute another $100,000 on condition that Manitoba and Saskatchewan would each contribute a further  s>o0,G00. The question has been taken  up by Mr. Meighen with the two  provm-cia* governments auu so far as  Saskatchewan is concerned, the additional appropriation will be met.

During hot months buy cornmeal,  graham flour, or cereals in smaller  quantities, then can in airtight glass  jars, for insects seek dark places  mostly to do their damage. If one is  afraid it has been visited by insects,  sift and place in a hot oven in shallow pans and heat almost to the  scorching point, then cool before  bottling, to insure it from gett-tng  musty. If cornmeal does scorch a  trifle it gives a pleasant paichcd  flavor to corn bread or mush.

But how can any woman  be healthy and happy when thc whole  nervous systcm is unstrung. The  trouble is they* pay more attention to  their social and household duties than  thcy do to their health. Ia it any  wonder then that they become irritable and nervous, have hot flushed,  faint nnd dizzy spells, smothering and  sinking spells, become weak and nervous, and everything in life becomes  d.uk   itiid   ^lytoiny.  Miiburn's Heart and Nerve Pills are  thc very remedy that nervous, tlred-  out,t weary women need to restore  them to the blessings of good health.  1\ii-.i. V. II.

Arthur Meighen,  Minister of the Interior, has undertaken the formation of a new administration, succeeding Sir Robert Borden, the retiring premier. Two retirements from the cabinet are announced, Hon. N. W. Rowell, president of thc Privy Council, who is retiring to private practice, and Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Customs, who  is to become librarian of parliament.  The two retirements, it is stated,  are not due to the change in leadership. Mr. Burrell has for some time  expressed a desire to return to private  life. Mr. Rowell's resignation is based on the point that a new party being created, and an administration  formed to represent that party.,  that he is entitled to ask "an  honorable discharge."  So far as the remaining members  of thc cabinet are concerned, it was  stated on high authority, they will  give their "undivided support" to the  new prime minister. In the formation of his cabinet, therefore, Mr.  Meighen will have but two retirements to meet���������Those of Mr. Rowell  and Mr. Burrell, with the addition of  that of Sir Robert, whose resignation  with leave the Martimc provinces  without a representative- in the cabinet. Mr. Meighen himself possibly  will assume the portfolio of president  of the privy council, relinquished by  Mr. Rowell, and in that event it is  likely that the department of the interior, over which he now presides,  will be merged with that of immigration and colonization. The vacancy  caused by the resignation of Mr. Burrell, it Is thought, is likely to be filled by the appointment either of R.  ��������� F. Green, member from Kootenay,  West, or of H. H. Stevens, Vancouver centre.  As a representative from Nova  Scotia, the name of F. B. McCurdy,  of Halifax, has been suggested.  Should either of these latter appointments be made, a by-election would  be necessary. Although all members  of the cabinet technically resign when  Sir Robert hands in his formal resigr  nation they will not require to be reelected on accepting office In thc new  administration.  Western residents of the city are  jubilant ovcr the fact that Hon. Mr.  Meighen will be thc first western  man to take over thc chief executive  office of Canada. While he is'a native of Ontario, Mr. Meighen has  spent practically the whole of his  life in thc West*.. He has represented  Portage la Prairie, Man., 'since 1908.  Mr. Meighen was also tiie man who  went with Sir Robert Borden to England in 1917 to attend the imperial  conference. He is a barrister by profession, having graduated from the  Toronto University in 1892; hc is also remembered as the man who fathered thc compulsory Military Service  Act and carried it through the house  in  1917.

Emphasizing Russia's economic  and transport difficulties and the absorption of her efforts in military activities, the report says: "Ringed from  the world by a blockade of all powerful nations, attacked by enemies from  within and without, and menaced by  fear     of     counter-revolutions,     from  within, is it wondered that a revolu-  a*  tionary government which has maintained any kind of order and discipline amongst its peoples, has rallied  to its support practically the whole  Russian   nation."

The individual amounts paid will  be the difference between a civil servant's former salary and that awarded him by the classification schedules.  It is possible that two checks will  be issued for each person, one covering the year from April 1, 1919, to  Ufcll.

Canadian Beef on U. S.

To this Dr. Simons replied: "I wish  to remind the honorable member that  there are parts of the British Empire  in which there are laws concerning  the keeping of arms by subjects which  the British empire is unable to force."  The allied demand is for immediate  destruction 12,000 cannon which the  allied commissioners in Germany unearthed, and 50,000 machine guns. The  allies hold that this is not sufficiently  rapid and express fear that the. machine guns will fall into the hands of  insurrectionists.  The military experts of both Germany and the allies began an explanation of the German plan immediately after adjournment of the conference. Immediately after the conference Premier Millerand declared  that it was most essential that the  treaty be completed and that Germany had found that accord existed.  The first evidence of this, the French  premier said, was when the allies declined to discuss disarmament in the  absence of representative German authorities. "Then when asked to fix a  date for disarmament,'* said M. Millerand, "they found the allies united  and consented to present a plan of  disarmament on a different date."  This made it possible for the conference, to go on."  The French premier added that he  had a good impression of the progress  of the conference.  About 45,000 checks will be sent  out from the auditor-general's department.

Brigadier-General R. E. H. Dyer, concerning Dyers action in ordering troops  to fire into a crowd of Indian's at  Amritzar, in thc Punjaub, upheld the  commander-in-chief in India for removing Dyer as commander in the  Punjaub and from holding any further  position in India, according to an announcement made by Winston Spencer Churchill, secretary for war, in the  house of commons. The council also  upheld the commander-in-chief in declining to grant Dyer further promotion and his reduction in pay one half.  "Dyer cannot be acquitted by any  judgment," observed Mr. Churchill.  Several hundred persons were killed when the troops fired on the Indians at Amritzar last April and many  hundreds were wounded.  Thc house of commons was greatly  excited over thc statement by Mr.  Churchill that thc army council had  agreed \\*ith the decision of the Indian  authorities, condemning General Dyer for firing on the meeting of native  at Amritzar and declaring that he  must not be  further  employed.

Mr. Law said: "The 48-hour week  would mean destruction -of the mercantile marine, which is the greatest  asset of the British Empire, and raise  thereon the black flag of discontent."  * A representative of the British seamen naively replied asserting that  shipowners had been the greatest exploiters and had gained millions during  thc   war.  "If you do not treat seamen as they  deserve, it is not: a question of the  black Hag, but of the red flag of  revolution," he declared. This was  applauded by  the seamen's delegates.
