The worst -fire Creston has had fn  years occurred on Thursday afternoon  last, just after the Review hud gone  to press, and which completely destroyed the residence of Albert Davies,  next door to the English Church, the  building being burned to the ground  along with the entire contents of tbe  upper story.  The cause of tbe blaze is unknown  but it originated upstairs and had got  such headway before being noticed  that when the alarm was given and  thi? vcSnatser See ������gh������ers had arrived  the heat was ao intense that it was  impossible to get ~%xp the stairs any  distance at all, and as-only a domestic  supply of water is available at that  end of the town, about all that could  be done was to get out the effects  downstairs, most all of whieh were  carried out-nefore the fire reached the  ground floor.  The English Church, which is with -  in ten feet of tbe kitchen on the  Davies home, had a narrow escape,  and had there heen any wind blowing  that afternoon it would have been  impossible to save the church and  most likely the Perish Hall would  have gone as well. Flying embers set  fire to the Barner heme in tbe rear a  couple of time but these, incipeint  blazes were prottiptly extinguished.

Hurrying Santry ahead of him, Wade,swung  open, the door and they-* looked out  cautiously. Ko ono was in sight, and  a couple of minutes later the two men  were mounted and on their way out of  town.  "By the great horned toad!" Santry  exulted, as they left the lights oi*  Crawling Water "behind them. "It  sure feels good to be out of that there  boardtn'-house. It wasn't our fault,  Gordon, and say,  stiootin" ��������� .    .    ."  "'I know all about  finterposed. ."The  They're waiting for us at the big pine.  But your arrest, that's what I want to  hear about."  "Well, it was ihis-a-way," ihe old  man explained. "They sneaked-up on  the house in the dark and got the drop  ou us. Right here I rise to remark  Ihat never* no more will I separate  snyeslf from niy six-shooter. More'u  one good man has got hisself ��������� killed  just because his gun wasn't where it  ������tighter be  when he  needed it.    ���������������. Of  about  this   here  that, Bill," Wade  hoys     told     me.  Wade's warning,;.to keep.sLiU was  lost on the wind, for Santry stuck his  spurs into his horse's flanks and  charged along the trail like an old  time knight. With a grim smile his  emplover put on speed and followed  him.  CHAPTER IX.  The  Battle at the  Ranch  When Wade and Santry approached-  the big* pine, the waiting men came  out from, its shadow and rode forward,  with the borrowed rifles across .their  saddle horns.  "Ail right, boys?" the randier asked,  taking Trowbridge's new riiie, a beautiful weapon, which Lawson handed to  him.  "All right, sir," answered. Tim Sullivan, adding the "sir" in extenuation  of his befuddled condition the night  before, while each man gave Santry a  silent handshake to welcome him  home.  Grimly, silently, then, save i'or the  dashing of their horses* hoofs against  the loose stones, and an occasional  muttered imprecation as a rider lurched in his saddle, the seven, men rode  rapidly toward the mountains. In  numbers, their party was about evenly matched with the enemy, and Wade  meant that the advantage of surprise,  if possible, should rest with Mm in  order to .. offset such advantage as  Moran might find in the shelter of tlie  house. 13ut, however, that might be,  each man" realized that the die had  been cast and that the fight, once begun, would go to a finish. '-. -  "I only hope," Santry remarked, as  a steep grade forced them..to-lessen  their speed, "E can get my two hands  on (hat cussed tin-horn, Moran. Him  and me has a misunderstandin' to set-  , tie, for sure." .  i     ."You leave him to me, Bill."  course,  we put up the best scrap Ave t spoke vindictively.      "He's my  could, but -we didn't have no chance  Gordon. The first thing I knew,  while I was tussliri' with one feller,  somebody fetched rne a rap on the  ' head with, a' pistol-butt, an* I went  down for the count. Any of the boys  shot up?"  Wade described the appearance ot  the ranch house on the previous night,  and Sanr.i-y swore right manfully. i  "What's on the cards now," be de- j  Wade  meat."  manded.      "How much longer ru-e we  goin.' to stand for    ..."  "���������"so longer," Wade declared crisply.  "That's why the boys are wailing for  us-at the pine. We're going to run  Moran and his gang off the ranch as  soon as  we  we're   going  to  run  them  out  of  the  country."  "Whoop-e-e-e-e-e" The old plainsman's yell of exultation split the slight  llkti the yelp of a coyote, and hc  brought hSs hand down on Wade's  back with a force which made the latter wince. "By the great horned  toad, that's talMn'! That.'a the finest  news I've heard since my old mammy  i-:ald to ���������"lie pardon, 'Call him Bill, for  short.'      Whoop-c-e-c-e-e*"  BEFORE MY    ^  1 Was. Greatly Ben_fited by  Well, since you ask it, I'll try, boy.  But there's goin' to be some lightin*  sure as taxes, and when I get to light-  in', I'm liable to go plumb, hog wild.  Say, I hope you don't get into no  trouble over this, here jail business o*  mine. That 'ud make me feei bad,  Gordon."  "We'll    not    worry about that now,  Bill."  "That's right. Don't worry till you  j have to, and then shoot instead. That's  ( been my motto all my born days,, and  I it ain't such dura bad philosophy at  j 1haU I wonder"���������the' old 'man  j chuckled to himself���������"I wonder if tho  S her ruff et up most of that there ga  can get there, and then j Defore i$at iet him loose?"  I self down on his stoinach behind a  bowlder to Sanlry's left and was  shooting methodically at the door of  the house, directly in front of him. He  knew that door. lt was built oi' inch  lumber and was so located that a bullet, after passing through it, . would;  rakeilthe interior of the cabin, from end;  to7encl. -7The;:only .way the inmates;  could keep out of the Tine of his fire-  was by-hugging the ":walls on '"either.'  side, where they would, be partially  exposed; to the leaden hail which Santry and the punchers were, directing  at the windows. '.  There was a gj-im, baleful look on  the young man's usualLy pleasant face,  and his eyes held- a pitiless gleam. He-  was shooting straight, shooting to kill,  and taking ,a'fierce delight in the act.  The blood lust was upon him, that  primal, instinctive desire for combat  in a righteous cause that lies;.hidden'  at the very bottom ol" every, strong  man's nature". And there came to his  mind no possible question of the righteous nature of his cause. He was  figthing tris regain possession of his  own home^ from the marauders who  had invaded it. His enemies hgkl  crowded him to the wall, and now  they were paying the penalty. Wade  worked the lever of his Winchester as  though he had no other business in  life. A streak of yellow mingled with  a bloody trickle from a bullet scratch  on his check gave his set features a  fairly ferocious  expression.  Santry, glancing toward him,  chuckled again, but without mirth.  "The boy's woke up at hist," he-Eisut-  tered to himself. "They've drove  him to it, durn 'em. I knew aimi._i.ty  veTl that this law an' order stunt  couldn't last forever.      Wow!"  The latter exclamation was caused  by a bullet which ricocheted from a  rock near his head, driving a quantity  of fine particles into his face.  "Whoop-e-e-e-e-e!" he howled a  moment later. "We got 'em goin*.  It's a cinch they can't stand this pace  for more'n ��������� week."  Indeed, it was a marvel that tlie defenders kept on fighting as long as  they did. Already the dooi\ beneath  Wade's machine-like shooting, had  been completely riddled; the windows  were almost bare of glass; and great  splinters of wood had been torn from  the log walls by the heavy rifle bullets  on their way through to tlie interior.  Soon the door sagged and crashed inward, and into the gaping hole thus  made Wade continued to empty his  rifle.  .At last, the fire of those within  slackened and temporarily ceased. I>i'd  this mean surrender? Wade asked  himself and ordered his men to stop  shooting and await developments. For  some moments all was still, and the  advisability"of rushing the house was  being discussed when all at once the  fire of the defenders began again. This  time, however, there was something-*  very odd about it. There was?, a loud  banging of " exploding cartridges, hut  only a few shots whistled around the  heads of the cattlemen. Nevertheless, Wade told his men to resume  shooting, and once more settled down  to liis own task.  "What'n hell they tryin' to do?"  Santry demanded. "Sounds like a  Fourth o' July barbecue to me."  "I don't' know," Wade answered,  charging. the magazine of bis rifle,  "but whatever it is they'll have to  stop mighty soon."  amBuk  ���������_  A  M  sBsS*  ���������zf$%Zg^$$^^  &  -"*������  st  Z^>A  ���������m  Then gradually, but iione the less  certainly,- the fire from within slacx-  ened until all was still. This seemed  more like a Visitation of death, and  again Wade ordered' "his men to stop  shooting. They obeyed orders and  lay still, keenly watching the liou.se.  "Do you surrender?". Wade shouted ;  but there was no reply.  Santry sprang to his feet.  "By the great horned toa<J.''* he  cried. "I'm a-goin' in there I Any  body that wants to come along is welcome."  Not a man in the party would be  dared in that, way, so, taking advantage of such cover as offered, they advanced' upon the cabin, stealthily at  first and then:* more rapidly, as they  met with no resistance���������no,-sign whatever of life. A final rush carried  them through the doorway into the  house, where they expected to find a  shambles.  Wade struck a light, ant| faced  about with a start as a low groan  came, from a corner of the back room.  A man lay at'full length on the floor.  UqA ', harpd 'l. * atid 7 foot; and gagged. It  was Ed Nelson,.one of'tlie* Double _r-  i-r>������r' hands who had been. st2r**n*'isscl  and captured by" the posse, and a little farther away !n the shadow against  the wall his two companions lay in a  Hke condition. W'ihjiis kvtif"* Wade .  was cutting: tlisia. loose, and glancing  about in. a puazled search for the  wounded men lie expected to find ������a  the house, when Santry 3houted something from the kitchen.

"There's a durned old hoot owl,"  growled Santry. "I never like to  hear them tilings���������they most always  mean bad luck."  He rode 1o the head of the little column, nnd the rest of the way to tho  ranch was passed in ominous silence.  When ihey finally arrived nt the edge  of the clearing and cautiously dismounted, everyfe-hing seemed from the  exterior, at least,_ns it should bc.

Whilst here and there, doubtless,  the usual complaints will be heard  about the guarantee feature of the  attraction, and sorrow and sighs  for the money that such an undertaking takes out of town, the Re-  possible  is as essential !to human wellbeing  as work; in fact the observant assure us that the maximum of  efficiency fh manual and mental  effort cannot be obtained without  the higher forms of relaxation, and  what better than Chautauqua's  afternoon and evening programmes  will be available in Crestoii this  season?* ;'.. ir'   ....  Asa bracer for the strenuous  summer and fall activities Chau -  tauqua offers a. six-day holiday at  home that: will give you pleasure  and profit at a price that has never  been duplicated.  There is an old and oft times true  saying, that mishaps of   this  kind! view urges the   strongest  travel  in    threes.       On    the   next'support  for   the' present Chautau-  occasion providence may   not treat  qua.  the town so kindly, and possibly it We know of no finer bit of corn-  will need still more drastic action munity work that can be engaged  on the part of the   firey element to  in in a  community   such   as   ours  wake citizens up tr the fact that is  does not pay���������some of us, at any  rate���������to go it cheap in the matter  of fire protection, at all events.  No blame can be laid at the door  of the waterworks company. They  do not undertake to supply anything more than a domestic service  at that end of the town,- and poor  as we sometimes hear this domestic  supply is, it must have been fairly  efficient on the day of the fire to so  effectively protect the nearby  wooden structures.  The only way the desired protec  tion in this regard, as well as other  desirable improvements, can be had  is by* municipilization���������village for  preference���������and it is to be hoped  tliat some move in this direction  will not be too long delayed.  than the annual bringing to Creston of some of the best things in  music and lectures that the country  has to offer, and it is only by Lhe  guarantee principle insisted upon  by the Chautauqua management  that such big attractions can possibly be brought to such small  centres,as this.  We fujly appreciate the fact at  this particular time the average  citizen is none too opulent, but at  that we as fully believe that with  the practice of a very limited  amount Ol sacFiiice most aU adults  who appreciate this class of entertainment will be able to realize the  price of season tickets for themselves and one or two members of  the family.  Healthy and inspiring relaxation  Board of Trade Does Well  And, speaking of community  effort, remincjs us that a good word  is due President Bennett and the  executive of Creston Board of  =Trade in connection with the  luncheon tendered Premier Oliver  a couple of weeks ago.  A modern philosopher has said  that 'A good dinner lubricates  business." arid certainly at this  particular- noonday spread .more  effective work was accomplished  than has previously been the case  where public men have been approached in the formal deputation  fashion.  All shades of political opinion  were represented at the gathering,  and possibly the finest touch was  the brief but graceful introduction  given the premier to the diners by  Col. Fred Lister, the local opposition member.   .  The representations made Mr.  Oliver by the three speakers of the  afternoon were creditable in every  respect. Appreciation was grace  iu lly ex pressed for favors ai ready  received and in the same fine spirit  attention was called to larger  matters with which the cabinet as  a whole -would have to deal with in  most every case.  In dealing with the   specific  re  quests made him the premier was  quite frank in giving expression to  his views* whilst in discussing  other matters that be deemed wise  to dwell upon certainly not even  the most rabid partizan in the  gathering could accuse Mr. Oliver  of. taking advantage.'."���������of a non-par-  tizau occasion to do ft little boosting  for his own* particular administration.   '"���������-���������-������������������...'���������  Another pleasing feature to the  affair was the splend idly jrepresent-  atiye turnout o������ business men and  farmers, whilst the only complaint  lodged was by the ladies who were  forced to take about a fifteen min  ute address from the visitor.at the  Presbyterian Ladies' Aid tea, during, which time he Created such a  favorable impression that nothinj*?  short of a fiill af ternoo-n meeting  will suffice on the occasion of liis  Jiext visit.  The Oliver luncheon was quite a  red letter day in the line of comin unity .entertainment for distinguished visitors, and now the good  work has sta r ted all wi j i ��������� hope th e  board of trade will in future make  these affairs features of the board's  operations.

Canyonp8 Community Spirit  And to round out this chapter  on community effort mention must  be made of the efforts of the Canyon City local of the United Farmers. As the pioneer farmers organization in Creston "Valley the members of the Canyon local have  certainly a record of commumty  accomplishments that they may  weli be proud of.  In five years of existence tlie lo=s  cal has been the centre of Canyon's  social life and in great variety it  has provided a high standard of  entertainment that has merited the  unstinted appreciation of all classes  in that section of the Valley���������combined with a reasonable profit taking that has been invested to splendid advantage.        .-jl---  Just now the Canyonites have as  an objective the erection of a com.  munity hall for- which a site has  been located, and with the ladies  organized as an auxiliary in this  good work within a few months  the Review looks forward with  some confidence to work heing tinder way on the erection of this  much needed public building, and  our confidence in this regard, we  feel sure, will not he found mis  placed if the ladies get after the  new hall in the same whole hearted  fashion they carried to completion  the substantial addition that has  jubb been made to the Canyon  church.  And to show that some of the  men have an equally admirable  record of performance we mention  the fact that as head of the social  committee ib took T. R. Mawson  just a little less than three yom-H to  gather in about $500 Wherewith to  pay for the piano that ie available,  free of debt for fche pro aperitive  new hall.  And as still further conclusive  evidence that the Canyon com rn unity workers get somewhere ij. tUuaild  be stated that within a week of the  delegation presenting to tho  jpremieir the caso i'or a new road  with a better grade into Calgary  HeiRhtFi, the district engineer aiud  general road'superintendent appear  on tho ground to make tho nsoes-  aary surveys so that the work can  be gone on with almost at once.  By confining their efforts to tho  essential material things, and by  happily combining Lhe lighter side  of life with the more serious nUuira,  Oan von looal of tho United Farmers hns developed tlie brim eom-  mnnity spirit and looked after the  wellbeing of that distriot in a  fashion that should inspire a great-  ���������or atni-Jviity wlong similar iiinos in  tlie other U.F. locale.  iviawson ESrotisars  _���������, BMi������f*mBfceB������������  Men's Half Soles, $1.25  Women's Half Soles, $1.00  Guaranteed for 6 months.

Another vast estate, bordering on the  New Forest, owned by the Tragett  family, lias just been sold because of  the high"taxation.
