The dance given a couple of  weeks ago for this purpose was quite  successful, the intake being $90, to  which will be added another $25,  which is on hand from a fund raised  for the children some weeks ago.  The final count of the yotes in the  Kaslo riding shows Col, Lister leading  by a majority of 35. The absentee vote  will be counted about Dec. 21st, the  outcomo of which will hardly change  the result, though it may reduce the  majority slightly.  LETTERS 111 THE EDITOR  Rod ani&zGuri GiesSs  Wynneiet  W, J, E. Biker, provincial water  rights engineer of Nelson, and his ass*  istant, Mr. Evans, arrived the latttr  part of the week to make a preliminary snryey of the proposed irrigation  system here, which will use Duck  Creek as a source of supply.  Polling day, on Wednesday last,  passed off quite peaceably, with the  electors preferring Col. Lister by  quite a substantial majority.  E. S. Butterfield who has been so-  jnurriing at Balfour the past week,  returned on Monday.  Rev. J. A. James, Presbyterian pastor at Creston, conducted service here  on Sunday afternoon, which was fairly well attended. He hopes to be able  to organize a Sunday school and have  service every Sunday in future.  The lady members of .the United  Farmers met on Friday last to form  their' auxiliary and elect officers, the  following being chosen to take charge  of the work this term; President. Mrs.  Rosendale; Vice-president, Miss Florence _ Bathie; Secretarv treasurer.  Miss D. But.tertield. They, have already in* hand 'arrangements for t-he  Christmas tr-eV atM0daj)ce. notice as  to the date of which will be given in  a few days.  Editor Review; *  Sib.���������Ih the years before the war a  number of sportsmen of Creston got  together and formed the Fish and  Game ProtectiveSeciety of which Mr.  Guy Constable wks president, and the  writer of this- letter secretary-treasurer. ...  After conversations with a number  of the local hungers and fishermen I  have deeidsd to'jvrite to you to suggest the formation of a club to be called the Creston "galley Rod and Gun  Club as a successor to the former organization which became moribund  after the outbreak of the war owing to  the departure overseas of many of its  members.  Such society or: club would appear to  be serviceable as- the game cons-eT-ya-  tion board is in;-the habit of writing  to the local rod and gun clubs, or  other such societies to ask for their  suggestions as td'the length and period of the open season for game, and  unless such society oi club makes its  influence felt local conditions are liable to be only partially undsrstood,  and seasons for shooting opened, closed and curtailed without reference to  those most concerned.  I would suggest thet trap shooting  should be one of tde subsidiary objects of ths club, as it would tend to  attract members and keep them together; and that, if found possible,  papers on subjects connected with  fishing, shooting and game and fish  conservation should at times be read  and discussed at meetings of the club.  Creston Valley is so favorably situated both in regard to the postibilities  of both fishing and shooting that a  rod and gun ciub should appeal to  many of the residents and the membership should embrace sportsmen  from all parts of the Valley. I would  therefore ask you to be good enough  to give the idea of the formation of  this proposed club some publicity, and  to announce that there will be a meeting of ell those interested in Speers'  Hall on Thursday, Dec. 16th, at 8.30  p in, prompt, to discuss it, to form the  elub, appoint officers and draw up and  adopt by-laws.  J, A. P, Crompton.  Sirdar  C.P.R. trains have been doing  tonsiderable destruction to livestock  here as well as at other points. Last  week T. Goodman lost a yearling heifer, making three head killed for him  this year, and some days ago Mr.  Cherbo lost several head of sheep.  R. Dennes returned the latter part  of the week from a business trip to  Nelson.  The roadmaking operations in this  section is providing an excellent  market for James Mannerino's beef  cattle. Of late he has been supplying  a beef carcass each week between the  three camps.  Announcement is now to hand that  the Kuskanook wharf will not be  gone on with this year. Cogie & Lock,  who have the cdntrract, will commence the local wharf as soon as they finish the same sort of a lob they are  now on at. Proctor.

Building operations still continue,  Jas, Turnley being busy at present on  a new house for A. S. Evans.  Ploughing, which was stopped during the cold wave about the middle of  November, was resumed for a couple  of weeks but the cold snap on Monday  morning again put a|halt to it.*  A. Wade, who is at present sojourning in the land of Uncle Sum, is here  for a few days, on a visit to his location in the Lister area.  The cold snap following right on  top of badly out up roads has necessi:  tated E. Thompson discarding the  motor truck service, and just now he  is utilizing a team and wagon.  The Ladies' Anxilliary of the G. W.  V. A. will have their Deciiiber meeting on Saturday afternoon at thc  schoolhouse.  The Literary, Musical and Debating  ���������Society meeting last week was of an  all-round nature, with President  Lewis in charge. There was a debate  on "Tho Greatest Problem of life," as  well as several musical and literary  selections.  Arrangements have been completed  as to the date and ^--ncral programme  I'or the children's C'luislinas party,  which will bo held at* the schoolhouse  on Wednesday evening, I ������������������<-. 22n������i.  the features of which will lie a conceit  ])l eeg.llllllli*.     a     Mippe'l*    feel      till'  Veiling-  U'ur tenure  MILLINERY, GLOVES, HOSIERY  Ladies' and Ghildrens' Wear  must go regardless of cost.

Dec. 17th, when it is hoped every  member will be in attendance.  Miss Corbett is busy at present  training the school children for a  Christmas concert to be given in the  school some time during the week of  Dec. 20-24th.  Engineer McCnllough of Nelson is  due to reach Canyon City this week  to get at the wot-k of surveying the  Canyon Water Users' Association irrigation system. The ranchers are  anxious to get a report as to the cost  so that arrangements can be made to  finance and get the system installed  first thing in the spring.  The United Farmers 'got in their  first car of hay this week, which is  being unloaded at Erickson.  Ca-yon Liberals are still quite confident of the election of John Keen.  Word is just to hand that hc has at  least 150 absentee votes" at the north  end of the riding besides quite a few  at this end, and as Col. Lister's majority is only 35 these shouid be ample to  wipe this off and give Mr. Keen quite  a good majority.  The concert in connection with the  meeting of the United Farmers oi-j  Friday night last was a fine all-round  success, with thc financial it.take close  to $80. The business features of the  U.K. meeting were uuickly disposed  of, and then with W. Searle in the  chair the concert commenced, the pre-  gramme including a reading hy Man-  ford Samuelson, a musical trio by  Andy Wickhoim, L.

He glanced  up and caught her gaze fastened upon  him, and he laughed happily as a boy.  "Isn't it wonderful, Willow?" he  called. "Look at that dam, straight  and true as a mason could lay it,  I've always felt that the beavers  should find a home in Hardwoods  Preserve, and now, sure enough,  they've found it."  Many a person carries around in  thcir system a cesspool compos-d of|  half-digested, putrid, decaying foodj  that thc overloaded stomach can't get|  rid of he-cause of constipation.

Coming to a sloping  glade, spreading a carpet of moss  green beneath the darker foliage of  the trees, he paused and glanced  about him. He knew that into his  heart was creeping a fateful and  dr"ad-"d unsurcness of himself, that  bitterness which a criminal, who has  paid, and wno. having sought a new  world in which to live stra'ght, feels.  "And, like as not, the ducks '11 find when he learns-that tlie minion of the  it  too,  and  jest   naturally   drift  over ( law lias tracked him down and wails  ��������� BY  ���������  ARCHIE P.

The eyes of Dalton and his hench-  mc-i spark! d. and their spirits rose  with the thoughts of money easily  earned.  "We'll   do  it!"   they   cried   together.  "Don't von  want us to  ,-rr.v    t t. r.  ?"  Dalton*  too,    Mr.   Timberley  reaching for his rifle.  "What girl?"  Dalton looked his surprise.

"They're  restless  things, ducks, particularly the teal."  "Yes, but when they find that there  isn't a grain of wheat or corn to be  found for their trouble, they'll drift  back to Duck Lake again, Willow."  "But the otters '11 come, Dorkin."  she warned. "They allers find thc  beavers. One old otter, . slid'n* in  her some dark night, wi'l kill ten  times his weight in baby beavers.  How arc you goin' to keep them killers, out?"  "Why,   I   guess  we'll  have   to  wait'  until they come and then figur* out a  wav.      No use borrowing trouble, eh.  girlie?"  Willow lifted thc dog's head against  her face and became silent. Dcrkin  | coming softly up behind her, stood  I looking down at the picture the two  j made. There was in his heart a  j strange yearning to gather the girl tin  j and crush her to him, to feci the  warm caress of her cheek, as Larry  ' was .feeling it, but the year- ing was  ! as quickly suppressed. Why. she  ! was nothing more than a slip of a  , girl, a little, wild, romping g\A���������or  \ was she? He b came suddenly  ' aware that she was no longer a little  | g'r*\.  And this morning she was so bcau-  1 tiful. so exquisitely warm and alive;  so alluring, and still so elusive, that  his pulses beat quickly as he watched  her, brown arms twined about the  dog's neck, strong, brown throat  gleaming beneath the low-cut doeskin  blouse, her who'e attitud- bespeaking  a poise which was thc heritage of her  forest.  "Willow,' tiie Wisp," hc said softly,  uncons-^iouply speaking ahmul.  She lifted her head qu'ckly and gazed up at him; but he did not meet her  eyes.  "I'm going on to the house, W'l-  low," he said abruptly. "You needn't  come  until   you're  ready."  He turned away and strode up the  trail. Haif-way to the Cabin he met  Danny Farnev who had just returned  from  Lookup with  tlie  m-'il.  Dorkin took thc 'ctt-rvs and papers  from the boy, answering the ques'ion  in his eyes with: "Willow is down  i yonder by the new braver dam,  Drmny, planning how she's going to  keen the otters from coming in and  making a clean-up of the babv beavers."  Danny turned away; then paus-d.  "There's some folks up at thc cabin,  Dorkin," he said���������"two people from  the   oitv.  and   Pa   Washburn."  Will Examine State  Bank of N.

McLean's construction reports  show that for the first 10 months of  1920 tbe total value of western construction amounts to $62,462,500,  compared with $24,036,400 during 1919  and $16,099,500 in 1918. Their estimate for 1920 building was $80,000.-  000. This year's total has not been  equalled since 1913.  Musical Sounds  Under Water  Experiments May Prove of Practical  Value in Navigation.  All the world has learned something of the hydrophone���������the instrument which enables the presence of  submarines to .be detected by the  vibrations they set up in the water.  Less is known about the wonderful  experiments carried out in connection  with this work, in the production of  sound under water. The method  ultimately adopted was to blow a jet  of condensing steam from a nozzle on  to a diaphragm under water. This  resulted in the production of a soft  musical note which could be heard by  means of a hydrophone up to a distance of eleven nautical miles. The  manner in which the sound is produced is closely akin to the "bringing" of  Tight Skirt Is Really Ancient.v  The modern sheath skirt is the re-  a kettle before it boils:  the repeated ' vival of a very  ancient  fashion.      A  collapsing of bubbles    of    steam    on  coming into contact with cold water  s.'ts up vibrations which, under certain conditions, are rapid enough to  give a musical note. These experiments are of great scientific interest  and' may well prove of practical value  in commercial navigation as well as  in naval operations.

Have Been Pretty Thoroughly Discredited After Many Tests.  We are inclined to accept with reserve the report that the French  Government has decided to test the  value of water-divining in its African  colonies and has appointed a number  of hazef-twig experts as members of  a scientific commission, consisting  otherwise of geologists and surveyors,  to hunt for new oases in the Sahara  desert. The divining rod has been  pretty thoroughly discredited by consistent non-performance in the coun-  ies during which superstitious belief  in its efficacy has prevailed. The  pioneers of the west, particularly  those who settled in the little watered sections, were familiar with it. If  the divining rod had had half the  power that used to be claimed for it,  the country would now be dotted  with flowing wells and rich mines.���������  Portland Oregonian.  statuette in the Louvre, Paris, shows  an   Egyptian  Queen of from 3.000 to  4 000 years ago in a gown cut low in   . ........    f      , .    *,, ���������������������������.���������. ,  J ,       . ,      , ��������� ,i   became eligible for his $1,000,000 but  the neck, with  sleeves stopping well      .,, ,  short of the elbow, and  with a skirt  Chas. Garland Prefers Manual Labor  to a Life of Luxury.  Charles Garland, second son of the  late James A .Garland, Boston multi-"'  millionaire, has declined to accept  $1,000,000, his share of his father's  estate, because he prefers manual  labor to a life of luxury. He is living with his wife and infant daughter  at Bay End Farm, his mother's  summer residence at Buzzard's Bay.  Mass. Hi's mother forfeited her  claim to the Garland millions by  marrying Frartcis dishing Green in  1912. Since then the big estate has  been held in trust for the three sons.  His brother, James A. Garland 3rd,  now 22 years old, accepts his share  of the estate. The third brother, a  student at Harvard, is inclined to believe he will follow Charles' example.  Charles is planning to become an auto  mechanic.  Charles Garland became of age last  June  and  by  the  terms  of  the   trust  that  fits even   more closely than the  tight skirts of to-day.

Old Folks' Coughs,  Catarrh, Bronchitis  Quickly Cured  This Tells of a Method That  Cures Without Using  Drugs  Elderly people take cold easily. Unlike young folks, they recover slowly.  That is why so many people past middle life die of pneumonia.  Cough Syrups seldom do ^huch  good because they upset digestion.  Any doctor knows that a much more  effective treatment is "CATARRHOZONE," which heals and soothes the  irritated surfaces of the throat.  In using Catarrhazone you do not  take medicine into the stomach���������you  simply breathe into the throat, nose  and lungs rich piney balsamic vapor,  so full of healing power that colds,  catarrh and bronchitis disappear almost instantly.  The germ-kiring; balsamic vapor  mixes with the* breath, descends  through the throat, down the bronchial tubes, and finally reaches the  deepest air cells in the lungs. All  parts arc soothed with rich, pure  medicinal essences, whereas with a  syrup the affected parts could not be  reached and harm would result  through benumbing the stomach with  drugs.  A Catarrhozone inhaler in your  pocket or purse enables you to stop  a cold with the first sneeze.

REVIEW  THE CRESTON REVIEW  Issued evoi-y Friday at Creston. B.C.  Subscription : $2.50a veai* in advance.  S8.00 to U.S. points.  V. F. Hayks, Editor and Owner.  CKKSTON,   B.C..   FRIDAY, DEC. 10  Vote Disappoints  With complete returns in the  Kaslo riding showing Col. Lister '���������  elected by a majority of a couple  of dozen, the more ardent Liberals are not yet conceding the j  seat to the Conservatives. The ab-1  sentee votes have not yet been  counted and as there are about a  hundred of them for the whole  constituency Mr. Keen's supporters are yet sanguine that Dec. 21  ���������the date this absentee vote will  be opened���������will see the former  member again elected.  Somewhat   the   same   situation  was in evidence at the last election when the final result could  not be declared until the soldier  vote was counted, but when these  ballots    were    checked  up it  is  doubtful if more than one riding  was affected ��������� the  outstanding  change being in Vancouver where  the soldier vote overcame an adverse  civilian   poll   and   elected  Hon. W. J. Bowser.  Even Mr. Keen himself is sanguine of the final count returning  him as a winner, and pending the  final outcome���������like a shrewd campaigner���������he is not discussing his  prospective defeat or victory at  any   length.    At  the   same   time  there is no   gainsaying  the   fact  that he is    disappointed    at   the  showing the Valley polls made in  his favor.    On the score of services rendered this end of his constituency he was certainly entitled to look for better treatment.  In commercial life it is sound  business to retain the services   of  an employee who has shown ability and willingness to do a   fair  day's work for a fair day's pay,  rather   than   take   chances   with  new  hands,  and  it is rather an  unfortunate state of affairs that  the same excellent policy should  not prevail in public life.   If this  sort of treatment is to become the  fashion what* hope is there for attracting men of ability to offer  their services as parliamentary re- j  presentatives. j  Aside from this feature of  the |  voting the contest  in   the- Kaslo'  constituency was all that could be j  desired.    There were no person-;  alities and   no   mud   slinging    of j  any sort, and amongst the rank i  and  file  of both  parties sunrise  on   the   morning   after   saw   the  same    good   personal   friendship  prevailing as was in existence the  day the date of the election was  announced.    The Review's admonition to keep cool was splendidly  observed, and be the final  result  either in favor of the colonel   or  the ex-speaker there is every indication that Valley citjzens without exception will have no less  merry a Christmas on account of  the recent election.  Gamnaign Falsities  If there is anything to the more  modern saying that "every knock  is a boost" certainly the Creston  Valley got considerable advantageous (?) publicity in the recent  provincial    election.    On    every  likely occasion Conservative orators from Hon. W. J. Bowser down  held  forth  on  the troubles  and  disabilities the soldier settlers at  Lister labor under, and the longer the campaign went the bolder  the opposition leader became, his  worst break coming a few days  before polling when at a Victoria  meeting Mr. Bowser is reported  to have produced a telegram from  Creston which stated that there  wasn't a satisfied soldier farmer  in the whole Lister area.  In view of the fact that the cap-  i ital returned Premier Oliver at  the head of the poll, and also ac-  ' cornmodated two other Liberal  i candidates with substantial maj-  ; critic***-:, it. would look as if Mr.  j Bowser's unfortunate utterance  ; did not get him anywhere, but  j Tlie Review cannot so lightly pass  ! up an editorial paragraph in the  I Fernie Free Press of Nov. 26th  i in the same connection, and which  i reads as follows:  i  i  j '' Oliver shouts: No straw to  j make bricks with, no money  j to build decent roads. He  threw away nearly $300,000  on worthless land at Fernie,  Kelowna   and   Creston,    and  then shouts no money. Why  there is not enough money in  the world to keep him and  his bunch of incompetents going."  The Review is quite prepared to  take the Free Press' word for  it  that worthless land was purchased at Fernie, though at the time  of the purchase we cannot recall  the Free Press making any protest at the proposed purchase, and  even at Kelowna it is possible   a  poor buy was made, but certainly  no government ever made a better investment in land than the  Oliver government in the purchase of the Lister area at $30 and  $35 an acre.  Other people have paid double  that price for land in the   same  neighborhood    and   are   making  good at farming it today.    Incidentally   it   might   be   remarked  that the soldier settler at Lister is'  buying this land with house on it,  five   acres   fenced,   cleared   and  ploughed, and a well dug,    at  a  price per acre that is considerably  less than the same sort of land in  a wild state three miles away is  selling at���������and the soldier farmers have a payroll job available  for any spare time they may have  off their own holdings.  If Mr.  Bowser really believes  "there isn't a satisfied settler at  Lister," or if the Free Press gets  any  satisfaction  out  of its    attempt to misinform the public as  to the excellence of the government's local land purchase,   the  pleasure   is   certainly   all   their*?.

Parliament   and   Legislature  The task of framing' a constitution for the Dominion of Canada was undertaken just at the time when the United States was engaged in 3 life and  death struggle between the States of the North and thc Southern Confe-der-  acy. The war of secession arose out of the issue of States' rights, individual States claiming and asserting their right to the exercise of certain autonomous rights and powers and charging interference and usurpation of those  ���������rights and powers by the Federal authority at Washington.  With the grim results of such a dispute over States' rights before them,  the fathers of the Canadian Confederation deliberately framed a constitution  with the underlying idea of creating a strong and powerful Federal authority, rather than the development of strong Provinces. Consequently, the  constitution of Canada is based on the reverse principle to that which was  -recognized in framing the constitution of the United States.  By the constitution of the- big American republic, all powers not expressly reserved to the Federal Government belong to and arc exercise d by  the respective States; in Canada, on the other hand, all powers not expressly conferred upon the Provinces nre reserved to the Federal Government. This marked difference in the underlying principle of the constitutions of the two countries frequently leads to misunderstanding of the powers and functions of Provincial Governments on the part of new settlers in  this country from across the border. As a result, requests and demands are  made upon Provincial Governments which it is not within their powers  and jurisdiction to grant.  It   is   manifestly   impossible   in    a brief article to attempt even a bare  enumeration   of   the   exclusive   powers   conferred   by    the    British North  America upon the Dominion Parliament, on the one hand, and Provincial j  Legislatures  on   thr* other  hand.       Suffice it  is  to say  that  matters of a|  national character, and those having to do with other countries, as well as  those   which    are    of an interprovincial nature, are reserved exclusively to I  Parliament.      Thes*e include trade and commerce, navigation and shipping,'  both sea coast and inland fisheries, postal services, military, naval and all.  matters   connected    with    national    defence, the criminal law, weights and  measures, banks, banking, currency and coinage, etc., etc.      The Dominion  Parliament has power to raise its revenues in practically any and every way  it chooses, and to levy taxation on all the people, both direct and indirect.  Provincial Legislatures, on the other hand, are restricted to the raising  of money by direct taxation within the Province, the imposition of license  fees, by borrowing on the sole credit of the Province, and through the management of such natural resources or local works and undertakings which  they may possess. In legislation, the Provinces havc jurisdiction over  municipal institutions, incorporation of companies with Provincial objects,  property and civil rights, the administration of justice, and generally all  matters of a merely local or private nature in  the  Province.  In regard to education, the Provinces havc control, subject, however,  to certain restrictions, and in the event of a Province not having respect for  these limitations on its authority, the Dominion Parliament has the right  to interfere and pass remedial legislation correcting an established grievance. This limitation, however, has only to do with the matter of separate  schools and the rights and privileges which by law are enjoyed by Roman  Catholic or Protestant minorities respectively. This restriction upon the  powers of Provinces in the matter of education,'and the dual control provided for in certain contingencies, has bcen the cause of moro bitterness,  friction and strife in Canada, and has been responsible for retarding its development and prosperity to a greater extent, than any onc other thing.  Nevertheless, it must be remembered that unless the compromise, which  this feature of our Constitution contains, had been arrived at, it vvould not  have beer; po-.-!':,!���������?��������� to achieve Confederation in 1867 and probably not at  ttny s-lib.-:; ?<������������������;*.; i-*-:;   ;.-..��������� r I ci.  ;.r'irt.-r.'.:nt and ihe Provincial Legislatures both possess  !*,  r  :.*.;ion  !o agriculture and immigration, but no Act  -.---���������;ic or be in conflict with a Dominion Act.  -���������*������������������ r v.hich legislative and legal differences of opinion  :'.-.-:   Du-ni-iior.  and  the  Provinces is as to ownership  ... e.v,.....s wit]-,in a Province.

The increase for the seven  months of the fiscal year ending October 31st, 1920, as compared with  the same period last year is $252,147,-  150. In the first seven months of  this fiscal year the total value of the  Canadian trde is $1,511,795,539 as  against 1,359,648,374 for the first seven months in  1919.  North Dakota  Banks Close Down  THE TREASURE  Easily Maintained Through the Use  of  Dr.  W.lliams' Pink Pihs.  There is not a nook or corner in  Canada, in thc cities, the towns, the  villages, on thc farm and in the  mines and lumber camps, where Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills have not been  used, and from one end of the country 10 the other they have brought  back to bread-winners, their wives  and families the splendid treasure of  new health and strength.  You have only to ask your neighbors, and they can tell you of seme  rheumatic or nerve-shattered man,  some suffering woman, ailing youtn  or anaemic girl who owes present  health and strength to Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills- For more than a quarter  of a century these pills have been  known not only in Canada, but  throughout all the world, as a reliable  tonic,   blood-making   medicine.  The wonderful success of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills 'is due to the fact  that thcy go right to the root of the  disease in the blood, and by making  thc vital fluid rich and red strcngihen  every organ and every nerve, thus  driving out disease and pain, and  making weak, despondent people  bright, active and strong.

Johnson, one of the best known and  most highly esteemed men in Lunenburg county, N.S., says:���������"1 am a  Provincial Land Surveyor, and am exposed for the greater part of the year  to very hard work travelling through  the forests by day and camping out  by night, and 1 find the only thing  that will keep me up to the mark is  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. When I  leave home for a trip in the woods 1  am as interested in having my supply  of pills as provisions, and on such occasions, I take them regularly. The  result is 1 am always fit. I never  take cold, and can digest a!l kinds of  food such as we have to put up with  hastily cooked in the woods. Having  proved the value of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, as a tonic and health builder, I am never without them, and I  lose no opportunity in recommending  them to weak people whom 1 meet."  Dr. _ Williams' Pink Pills should bc  kept in every home, and their occasional use wil! keep the blood pure  and ward off illness. You can get  these pills through any medicine dealer, or by mail at 5U cents a box or six  boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine -Co., Brockville, Ont.  Fifteen    Banks    Have    Now    Shut  Down    Due    to    Depleted  .^Resources.  Bismarck, N.D.���������Three more North  Dakota banks closed their doors late  today, due to depicted resources,  bringing the total of such closures reported here for the past 14 days to 15.  Those shutting down today were the  State Bank of Adrian, the State Bank  of Donnybrook, and the State Bank  of Glenburn, all in Renville ocunty.  Earlier in thc day it was announced that the State Bank of Mohall did  not open for business today. It was  the tenth bank closed.  The State Bank examiner, C. E.  Loftus, announced that no receivers  are being named for the closed banks,  but an officer-of each bank has b^een  named a special deputy examiner to  have charge of the institution. Loftus  said he expected many of. the banks  would reopen when thc financial  stringency was past.  Officials of the Bank of North Dakota arranged today to meet with a  committee of nine bankers, appointed at a conference yesterday of bankers and county officials held in Man-  dan. Bankers expect to give thc  Bank of North Dakota assurance  that county officials will not make  heavy demands on thc State bank  for funds when the law permitting  the withdrawal of public funds from  the bank becomes effective on December 21.

Manitoba May Evoke  Aid ot Supreme Court  (Copyrighted)  My last article ended with the death  of Wen-di-go, that notorious Bolshevik amongst train dogs.  The   -Pas    itself    has now become  well-known as about the centre of one  of the: biggest muskrat swamps in the  west, and rats mean minks, but for  fine fur such us martens, fisher, lynx  and bear, the bulk of these were secured at thc Mountain- (Pasquki  Hills) and here two bands of Indians  divided th-^ country into hunting  grounds. One. of lhe.se was headed  by O-sow-usk, who was on friendly  terms with thc Company (note that  when Company is written it always  means the Hudson's Bay Co.) and  most of whose followers were Christianized. The other band had for a  leader Ki-say-the-nish, and thcy were  all still Pagans, but mighty hunters  before thc Lord, like Nimrod of old.  They were on bad terms .with the  Company at that time and had a resident free-trader living with them  named" Daniel,  from   Red  River.  I tackled the Chief late one night,  after our usual chess game, "to let me  pass the spring out at thc .Mountain,  and held forth as a bait the prospect  of reconciliation with Ki-say-the-nish.  Finally 1 obtained h.s consult, but he  ���������insisted that I take an old and experienced voyager with me in whom he  placed great confidence, but whom I  did not care for���������one, Pierre Marcel-  lais, a French half-breed.  The plan was that vve were to leave  'The     Pas    about  the 20th  of  March  ���������with  two  trains  of  dogs  and  part  or  the outfit, the dogs to continue hauling as long as sleighing    was- good.  Then wc were  to  get two birch-bark  canoes  built   up   there  and   return   to  Thc  Pas about thc end of May when  the fur season ended.      In the meantime   1   had   to   work  doubly   hard  at  thosc district accounts.      My, but the  time dragged, but at last the day for  departure came and wc made a start,  camping  at   Birch    River   that   night.  Next day we reached O-sow-usk.camp  in good time.      Thc    old    man     was  benevolent   and   kind   and   felt   very  flattered  to  have  a  Company's   clerk  camped  beside   him.       H*>  sty-cd   mc  Noo-sis-im (or Grandsoii), fllij I called    hiin    .Moo-choom  (Grandfather).  We   had  a   leather     tepee     made     of  smoked   caribou   skins   from   Lac   du  Brocket.        Fresh   spruce   brush   was  constantly put down in thc tent for a  carpet.      Our trading goods were all  piled at  the back, but edible? had to  be staged h.ghcr  than     Hainan,    for  train dogs arc omniverous as well as  carnivorous._     Next day I sent  Pierre  and an Indian bov back for two more  Fortunately I had a long tail | thal  Coun  Procedings appear  to be  the only method left to secure control of provincial resources from the  Dominion  Government.

Thc first  geese were just arriving from the  south, and everyone was longing for  a taste of fresh game after the eternal j  fish diet, when 1 met with a nasty accident. I took my dogs and old  Moo-choom for company and visited  a camp some few miles away. The  winter trail cut straight across country, but ice on the rivers was now  bad and in fact gone out in some  cases, and one had to be careful and  make detours when necessary. At  onc of these place, s the dogs bolted  down the winter trail in spite of my  yelling "cha, cha;" at the top of my  voice.  line    trailing    of    buffalo    raw    hide,  which 1 at once grabbed.      About the  middle of the Man River the ice gave  way and thc elogs broke through.      1,  in   the  meantime,, was  keeping  along  the firmer ice on thc side and but for  a   hang.ng   tree   which   was  partly  in  the     water    we    might    have    come  through   all   right.       The   first   dogs  went  under,  but  the  steer  dog   (Mo-  kose, who was    always    in    trouble)  stuck his head up and the force of thc  current   pinned   him   there.       As   the  tree was rising and falling, it  looked  as  if  all  the  dogs  would  drown.       I  started    in    to    try and clean  up thc  mess,  the old  Indian  praying for  me  to    be    careful.       When   I   got  close  enough  to   Mo-kose  I  made a  smash  at his head with my fist.    ' He dodged  and   I   struck  the  collar irons  at   thc  back of his  neck    anel    drove    them  nearly through my hand.    This cleared  the dogs all  right and  away  they  went   down   stream.       Just   then   the  bottom   ice   I   was   standing  on   gave  way, and  I went down, and but for a  knot  in  the   tail-line it     would     have-  been all day for me, anel I would have  gone   under   the   ice.       By   this   time  the   dogs   hael   reached   firm   ice   and  struggled out, assisted by the  Indian,  anel their steaely vv; ight pull  el  mc to  safety.      My hand swelled badly (the  right one) and I  was ,n great distress  for  fear it  would    stop     my     goose-  shooting. Here    is     where     Moo-  choom came in, for when we got back-  to  camp  he   took   full  charge   of  the  treatment,   and   in   a   week   I   was   as  well as ever.      Daily a fine powder of  some precious root was applied to the  wound, while I had to drink freely of  a   decoction   of   thc   same.       Naturally the medicine man had to be compensated.

During the past few days no less  than fifteen banks have been closed  in the adjoining state ef N'orth Dakota.  The suspension of these institutions has created in the districts they  served an amount of trouble and  loss, which business men will readily appreciate.  It may be pointed out that if the  UniterJ States had thc "Canadian sys-  ti-m of banking, which is the British  system, developed to its greatest perfection in Scotland, these failures  would not have occurred.  Manitoba is not.as rich a territory  as North Dakota, it was settled at a  later time, it is supposed to have in  its rurai districts less accumulated  wealth, but in Manitoba there havc  been no bank failures, and there will  not be any. AU the institutions in  tbis area are functioning as usual.  The Ignited States is thc richest  nation in the world anel it has the  greatest gold reserve of any nation  in the world. In spite of these facts  all these banks are ^osed.  All human institutions have their  imp rfections and the Canadian  banking system, without doubt, bas  its imperfections. At thc present  time the- gooel point of thc system is  in "the limelight in a remarkable way.  If some of the managers of branch  lines in thc west would tcl' what  they know at the present time, they  would con firm what is written here  in an astonishing way.  At thc present moment at many  western branches deposits arc very  much .less than it was anticipated  they would be at this time, and loans  are very much higher. The difference  between ihe real position and the  position which was expected amounts  to hundreds- of thousands of dollars,  even  in  smaller offices.  If these; offices were dependent  banks, they vvould be compelled to  close, just as thc offices in North  Dakota have had to close.  Under thc conditions which exist  in Canadian banking, funds pour in  from offices in remote parts of thc  country, all demands arc met, re-  t|U,r incuts are supplied, funds arc  furnished, and the great economic  machine is kept   running smoothly,  In thc time of st ess and strain  there is obvious strength and stability in a great scries of offices across  a continent, all link d tp iu one  manag.nient, ..with resources available to any office in time ai need.  Unemployment Among  Veterans increasing  Situation  Is Becoming Very Ssrious  t      According to G.W.V.A.  Ottawa.���������Telegraphic reports received by the Dominion headquarters  of the G.W.V.A. indicate that unemployment among returned men is becoming serious. The worst reports  come from the west, Toronto and-  Montreal. In thc industrial centres  of the Maritime Provinces, apparently the situation is not so bad.  From Regina a report is to hand  that married men arc on the verge of  starvation^ and that thc association  funds arc low.  Edmonton reports that single men,  following harvesting and threshing,  are drifting in from all parts- of Alberta, looking for employment.  Vancouver reports the unemployment situation as very serious, as  docs Toronto.  In 'Winnipeg, according to G.W.V.A. advices, men with minor disabilities especially are finding great difficulty in securing work, as they are  not able to do heavy manual labor.  From Montreal comes.word that  the situation, although bad now, is  going to bc much worse, as a number of large companies arc being  forced to lay off men.  The situation is one which has already been taken up at a conference,  between G.W.V.A. officials and the  Prime Minister when, it is under-  stood, assurance was given that  everything possible would bc done by  the Government.  Loneion.���������Persons to ;!;c number  of 673 have been killed or wounded  in Ireland up to November 27 of the  'pres'.'nt year by anti-Government elements, according to a statement issued by the Home Office. The deaths  do not include 20 persons ki'led in  Londonderry and 62 in Belfast dur-~"  ing the." summer rioting, nor 15 cadets  killed in the Kilmichael ambuscade.  The statement says that 151 policemen havc been killed and 230 wounded, that -47 soldiers have met with  death and 103 wounded. Civilians to  the number of 41 have been killed and  10 wounded.  Sixty-seven court houses and 528  police barracks have been destroyed  aud of the latter 161 damaged. There  havc been S30 raids on mails and 45  raids on coastguard stations and  lighthouses. In addition to these,  there has been 2,961 raids made for  arms.  Another statement says the arrests  in Inland averaged considerably  over 100 weekly. During the last  three weeks of November, 406 persons were taken into custody for  political offenses, including 169 during the last week of the month.  Lcrndon Bank Robbery.  London, Ont.���������London experienced  its first bank robbery when armed  and masked bandits held up the South  London branch of thc Aierchants  Bank. The thieves secured $700 and  made their escape in a high-powered  motor car.  The manager and teller were  backvd against the wall. Th*- police  started in pursuit immediately* after  being notified of the robb.ry.  Date Not Yet Set For Conference.  Ottawa.���������The Prime Minister has  not, as yet, fixed a date for the conference between thc Dominion Government anel a d. legation representing the western provinces, with reference to the control of the natural resources of the west. A request has  been received at the Prime Minister's  office that a date be set for such a  conference anel the matter is now under consideration. It is understood  that all three prairie provinces will  bc represented on the delegation  which will come east to interview the  Government.  Baron Desborough Dead.
