The ladies have had quite a successful  year of it, and great headway has  beed made in paying off the debt on  the piano.  The latest of the list of raffles is  that of a driving horse on which  tickets can be had at $1 apiece, the  funds realized are to go toward the  piano debt.  District Health  ~     Nurse at Work  Friends of .Roy Burness are living  high just at present, due to the fact  that he shot a couple of deer while out  hunting on Saturday���������one of which  went 130 pounds dressed. Bert Yer  bury is the only other resident to  hav-? secured ysnison previously.  Clarence Embree is busy on the  erection of a 'new house on the per-  ' tnanent lotation of ��������� W. Hurl. The  Hurl shack was transported to the  owner's new location via the caterpillar engine process.  At the meeting of the Literary. Debating and Dramatic Society on Wednesday night last President Barry  Brown tendered his resignation as  head of the organization in fayor of  Principgl Lewis, who has consented to  take full charge for the coming three  months.  ;^Fhe annual meeting of the Ladies'  'Auxiliary of the G.W.V.A. was held  on Saturday afternoon, when the following officers were elected for the ensuing term: President, Mrs. V. L.  Liddicoatt; Vice-President, Mra. F. A.  Butler;   Secretary-treasurer,  Mrs. A.  Mr. and Mrs, Joy who have been  visitors at the coast, returned home  the latter part of the week.  D. and E. S.

Mrs. Cockle was  hostess at  card  party and dance at the boarding house  on Saturday night, and all present  report a most enjoyable time.  Mr. and Mrs. Pitt Brooke left on  Friday on a v;sit to friends at Balfour  and Nelson,  Pat Dow was a "flving" visitor this  week. He passed ihrough on the  eastbound freight.  The newly-wed section of Wynndel  is being provided, by the government,  with a road, to facilitate their jour-  neyings up and  down   the mountain  Qlllo.  J. McGee of Lifter is due here on  Saturday night for a United Farmers  meeting at the school at 8:30. when he  will speak on behalf of the candidature of Col. Lister.

BEasm  Scarcely Credible  To be able to gel a Ladies' 14-kf. gold Wrist Watch on a  neat silk ribbon with a gold fastener, ana to know that in its  timekeeping it is the equal of man}) Watches four times its cost,  is to feel that $45 is very easy money.  Yet it is true���������our No. 83008/ is a marvel of watchmaking in the precision, adjustment,   appearance and dura-  --to*.  And it is "Guaranteed, of Course."  Goldsmiths  Silversmiths  Diamond  Merchants  VANCOUVER,  B.C.  Miss   McCluhan   of Edmonton  has  taken  up the work  of district nurse  for Creston  Valley.    Miss McCluhan  is a  post graduate  nurse with  three  years   experience in district nursing  and "is a regeste.red nurse in Albtrta  and B.C.   That, the district needs a  nurse goes without argument;  in fact  some people would go to the extent of  saying that fcirj,a district the size of  ours to be without competent nurses  amounts almost to   criminal   neglig-"  ence.    Miss   McCluhan   is capable of  making the work a success and'for the  time   being  wilt be supported largely  by  Bed  Cross and   Government aid*  This   aid will   be   forthcoming   only  during the time ,that  the work is in  the experimental stage, and it is just  as well for everyone to understand at  the outset that if Creston is lo haye a  permanent   nurse   lhe   district   itself  will   have  to   furnish   the   necessary  funds.    This  we  are quite capable of  doing and it seems quite certain that  aftfei Miss McCTuhan has been here for  a few   months the work will seem so  essential  that everyone will be eager  to  have  it continued   aud   willing  to  shoulder   the   financial   end    of   the  burden.  Until permanent quarters are secured Miss McCluhan will be at the home  of Mrs.- S, A. Speers and may be called  by messanger or- telephone at any  time. It- is desirable that all cases of  ulness requiring io*������ nurse's attention  should be reported aud such a report  may be sent in by anyone who has  knowledge of the case requiring attention.        -  For the present-transportation will  have to be arranged for out of town  calls but. in the very near future a car  w.ill,be furjiished--tw*-t-hj������ .nurse's-use,  making it nossifele for her to.attend  country cases promptly. Hours are  from 8.30 to 5; night calls will be responded to after 6 but only for con-  finment and emergency leases, and an  additional charge will be made for  night calls; calls will necessarily be  limited in time from twenty minutes  to one hour, according to the urgency  of the case, but where necassary more  than one will be made each day.  In a district like Creston, there is no  need for charity nursing, and a cha.ige  will be. made for all calls. This charge  will not be a fixed one -nnd in no case  will it exceed the ability of the home  to make the paynirnt. A maximum fee  of $1.00 has been set; children will  have free attention.  All fees paid to the nurse will be  turned in to the local Health Committee and these fees, together with  the voluntary contributions of the  district, will go towards paying the  nurse's salary and any x drugs, dressings, etc,, which  she  has to procure  .tion is not paying expenses the big  corporation loses no time in closing it  until such time as they are compelled  to reopen. Up till a month ago things  were going swimmingly but only last  week one of the officials were here  checking up things and it is safe to  say that if the volume of trade is not  increased it will not be. many weeks  till there will be no agent at Erickson.  Everyone appreciates the convenience  of having the station open, and certainly no agent could be more accommodating than Mr. Bundy. If all  who find Erickson sheir most convenient shipping centre will do every bit  of C.P.R. business they have there  there will he no occasion to worry;  unless they do turn all their l-ai'lway  trade Erickson way be warned in time  that the agent will be transferred to  some other point.

' Mr. Schonnert of Kitchener was  through here on Saturday on an apple  purchasing trip. He seems favorably,  impressed with Erickson as it was  only a few weeks since he made the  local rounds buying cattle.  Milt Beam is the first of the hunters  to land a. deer this season. He ���������n,*ot  quite a nice sample of venison in the  Kitchener country on Friday.

Clayton put a considerable  dint in the high cost of living on  Saturday when he had the good fortune to bring down a fine buck deer  which dressed 200 pounds. This is  about the finest sample of deer meat  taken in this section for years.  John Wood, w-ho has been in charge  of the Deschamps mill at Birch bank  for the past six months, got home the  latter part of the week for the winter.  The school trustees are nofc anticipating a winter out of the ordinary.  Their call for tenders for wood is only  for ten cords.  The United Farmers have decided  to develop the trading side of the organization, and are this week placing  an order for a carload of hay.  A^el Bergren, who has been "wonting at Biairmore all season, got back  last week, accompanied by his family.  Since leaying Axel has purchased a  Ford car, which he bronght with him.  They are occupying the Gilbert house  at present.  The United Farmers had their November meeting on Monday night and  at which it was decided to change the  night of meeting for the next few  months to the first and third Fridays.  At the next meeting the representative of tbe new Creston library, will be  here to explain matters in connection  with the library, and a musical and  literary programme will also be a  feature of the Dec. 3rd meeti ng.  muni  v.~    tt-Vam-Wm.  -ft    LllCllle*  A Dog Poisoner  Editoh Hkview:  SlU,���������Might another Erickison subscriber remark that Cananians  also consider a mav worse than a  coward who will keep a pail of scraps  at his back door to entice the neighbors' dogs to go there.

Mr. and Mrs. Thompson and two  children of Medicine Hat, Alta.. were  visitors with Mr. and Mrs. Henry  Hamilton last week. They are hoping to get work, in the Valley for the  winter, possibly at Kitcnener.  Annie Botterill is coming around  nicely after having had the bad luck  to hreak a. leg while playing around  the ranch about a week ago.  The C.P.R. auditor paid station  agent Bundy an official yisit last  week, checking up the volume of trade  to date. Things are very quiet around  the depot at present. If the station is  be kept open all the year round Erickson people will haye to see to it that  all their shipping, etc., is done through  here.

"But after going into the matter we.  have decided  to strike them  ont altogether and they are to be struck out  in all agreements with soldier settlers.  in all areag."

S3.00 to U.S. points.  C. F. Hayes, Editor aud Owner,  ORESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, NOV. 19  #m'  At this particular time when it"  is the duty of every citizen who  has the interests of the province at  heart to consider carefully the  effect of his ballot at the forthcoming election upon the destinies of  the province for the next four  yearSj it is well to remember that  in the last analysis the success or  failure of the administration by  any government must depend upon  the ability, integrity and administrative capacity of its individual  members.  The action of the Conservative  party in selecting Colonel Fred  Lister, C.M.G., D.S.O., M.C., as a  candidate to represent this riding  in the provincial legislature, is a  singularly happy one, as during  the whole of his career, except dur  ing the war when he was with  Canada's sons in France in the  service of our country, he has been  engaged in agriculture and lumbering, two of the main industries of  our riding, and should therefore,  have a better knowledge and grasp  of the needs and requirements of  the farmers and lumbermen in it. He  is also fully alive to the great importance and value of the mineral  wealth and.mining activities of the  district and to the necessity of  building roads and trails for the  purpose of opening up the country.  ���������: Colonel Lister needs no introduction to Kootenay residents, as he  has lived and worked in the Koote-  ssays since coming from the prairies, where he was engaged in farming, in 1907; and immediately upon  his return from France purchased  land   near Lister, which is named  after him, which he ie clearihg and  making his permanent home.  The active interest and unsparing effort which Colonel Lister has  shown in the interests of the returned 'soldiers and toward their  successful - re-establishment has  made him immensely popular not  only with the returned soldiers of  the riding, but also with all those  who have their interests at heart;  snd if he is elected to represent  this district the electors can feel  sure that their every interest will  have that thorough and careful  consideration and aggressive support which characterises Colonel  Lister's undertakings.  The appeal of John Keen, the  Liberal candidate, for re-election  can safely -be based on his own record of beneficial service rendered  his constituents, coupled with the  progressive legislation enacted by  the Oliver government in the interests of the province generally.  So far as Creston Valley goes wo  fair minded person can deny that  Mr. Keen haa been an exceptionally  useful representative along practically every line that this community  depends upon the provincial government for co-operative or direct  assistance.  ' In the matter of our roads the  Valley has fared equally as well as  any part of B.C. This year a quite  substantial start has heen made in  providing a permanent road on the  heavily-travelled highway from  town to Erickson, and this work  will be continued to a much larger  extent next year.  In providing for better means of  communication into Bast Kootenay  points and thus encouraging a  greater volume of tourist traffic a  ���������tremenduous improvement has been  made at Goat River crossing where  a hill with a 27 per cent, grade has  been entirely eliminated by. a cutoff  that reduces the grade to about 7  per cent. At Arrow Creek work  of similarly beneficial nature has  been undertaken.  To    connect    East    and    West  Kootenay work is now under way  on the Sirdar-Kuskanook road and  improvements to the road between  Wynndel and Sirdar are also included in the appropriation made  available for the highway to Kuskanook. Ca.nyor. City section is  now provided with its long desired  high level bridge/.the advantage of  which there is no need to recount  here.  With so much attention Jtd and  the bulk of the expenditure on new  roads the past two years, of necessity the existing highways have  not received quite the atteution  due them, but 1921 will see a policy inaugurated of putting the existing highways in the best possible  shape so far as appropriations will  permit.  In the very important matter of  irrigation Mr. Keen has been successful in having an exhaustive  survey made of Arrow Creek with  a view to utilizing it for a Valley  irrigation supply, and a preliminary investigation has been made of  Goat River for the same purpose.  Still more tangible evidence of his  usefulness is evidenced in the login  the Erickson Water Community  secured for irrigation, and - the  same worth while consideration  that seems assured for a similar  undertaking at Canyon City, as  well as the East Creston project.  On the drainage of Kootenay  flats the government, at Mr. Keen's  constant urging, has got the  scheme along . to the point where  Canadian and U.S. authorities .are  in communication endeavoring to  adjust all preliminary details so  that when both, countries decide to  jointly put engineers at work there  need be no delay in getting at the  actual work that will decide whether the scheme is practicable or not.  Still another matter that has  unmistakably demonstrated Mr.  Keen's usefulness is the opening up  in Creston Valley of one of the two  active soldier settlement areas in  B.C. Just what Camp Lister has  already meant to the prosperity of  this seption is too well known to  need any elaboration���������and in the  prospective colonization policy of  the Oliver governhient undoubtedly this area will receive- practical  consideration.  While Mr. Keen numbers himself  among the residents of Kaslo he  has over shown a decidedly active  personal interest in all matters  affecting Creston Valley. Certainly the Creston fall fay* has no  warmer and " practical supporter  than Mr. Keen, and in the work of  the United Farmers and Board of  Trade committee on municipiliza-  tion Mr. Keen has rendered valuable services.  Mr. Keen has been a resident of  the Kootenay for at least a quarter  of a century, and no other man is  in a better position to ��������� know its  needs or to make a practical and  sympathetic   effort   in   promoting  legislation helpful to the section of  the province in whicl: his personal  as well as legislative interests are  If the best recommend a successful business man can have is ability to deliver the goods, certainly  John Keen can look forward with  confidence to the electors - of Crest  on Valley doing the squrre thing  by him in the voting on December  1st.  Kaslo constituency is in a fortunate position in Connection with  the pending election, for no matter  whether Col. Lister or John Keen  is elected this riding will be well  represented.

They will give consideration to further necessary irrigating facilities hy means of assistance to hydro-electric projects.  14. They will introduce legislation and carry into effect the declared  wishes of the people as ex pressed in the recent referendum on liquor; at  the same time this Act must bc a fair and reasonable one to that the  Government will have absolute control of the traffic and that there will  be no abuse in the uses of liquor but same to be used only in moderation.  Heavy penalities will be included in the Act for all infractions ahd the  Act will be strictly enforced. They will also use every effort with the  Dominion Government, under whose jurisdiction the matter lies, to see  that legislation is passed at Ottawa which will stop the importation of  liquor into this Province by private parties so that all liquor purchased  and sold in British Columbia will be absolutely under Government control.  15. The Conservative Government will also hand over to the Municipalities a share of the profits derived from the sale of liquor in the Government stores so that the burden of taxation in Municipalitis may be reduced by this contribution from the Government.  10. The above are only a few of the reforms which will be instituted  by the Conservative Government should they bo elected on the 1st of  Dobember, as they stand pledged to adopt a constructive business-like  programme which will be administered by business men. looking forward  to a more successful period in tho next five years and with more results  than we have seen under the Oliyer Administration.
