At present, out of  seven teen, modern battleships, Britain  is keeping six in the Mediterranean,  out of sixteen new light cruisers six  are in the Mediterranean and two destroyer flotillas out of nine are also  there. "*  Inequality That Is Wicked  betwet-n  i hi  wages of the xuan who produces food and of  wall is so wicked that it ranks as  It is  the  fundamental trouble in  "The difEe.rene.  the. mail who builds a hou.se or plasters a  one  of ihe  world's  greatest  inequalities.  thf nation loday."  Tlie words quoted are from a Vnii-fd States farm journal in thc course of  iin article on the present, depressed state of agriculture in the Western States,  especially in the larger wheal growing States.  The Cleveland Trust Company in its "Business Bulletin" declares that the  basic fact is thai; the prices of.' farm products and of manufactured goods are  seriously out o������ line. Iu this "Business Bulletin" there is presented a chart  illustrating the above concrete and indisputable fact.  Taking the pre-war year "J&.18 as representing a standard or normal level  of 100 it is shown that the price received by the farmer for his products rose  during the war and until 1 y20 when it reached as high as 240 and then declined until iu iHi"''. the figure stands at "120, or only 20 points above, the prewar level.  During this same period the price paid b5' the farmer for necessities rose  from :100 In 10'i:"i to 215 in 1020, but the decline since has only been to "160 "in  l!)2c!. In other words, while the price received by the farmer for his products has dropped 120 points-Since 1920, tlie price the farmer pays for necessities has only dropped 55 points. The result is that instead of the purchasing power oi thc farmer's dollar being 100 us it. was in 19.1.3, or 112 as it was  in 1920, it is now only 80. Tliat is to say, prices thtT farmer must pay for  necessities have .not deflated, proportionately with the prices of what the farmer has to sell. .  ruder the circumstances at is not altogether surprising that several hundred wheat growers in the State of "Washington recently petitioned the Presi-  den to ask Congress to bus" their farms at oiice, pay thoir debts, "'and allow  M- co remain on the land and pay us wages, so that wo-, may "have some of the  -torn forts of ilfe and all ot" the necessities."  '  Tlie figures quoted relate to the United States, bur. conditions in "West-  ��������� *in Canada are niuc'i rhe same. At all events they point a moral for this  ' otmtry. It in just as true ia Canada as it is in tho United States that the  disparity iu wages of the man who produces food and of the railway employee who transports it to market, or the man who builds a house, plasters  a wall, or does a job of plumbing is '���������"Wicked."  The writer *.,i this column believes in co-operation between Kasfem and  West''tii Canada, between farmer and manufacturer, between the farm, pro-  d'ic.*r ui food ;'.!i*.: the artisan consumer of it. The writer believes that the  inif-r^sis or fanuda. east and west, are not antagonistic; on tho contrary he  belie*."- they are uiie and mutual.

THE    REVIEW,    CRESTON,    B.    C.  Power Of Turkish Empire  Has Been TM[iich Reduced.  As Result Of Late W^ar  e*  Turkey as a republiCi with its capi-,  tat at Angora, not at Constantinople,  will take its place as a distinctly Asiatic, not a European, power.     Over five  hundred years have passed since the  Turk crossed the-Bosphorus and carried his conquering arms to the gates  of Vienna, avhich. withstood -a furious  siege for eighteen days, baffling Suleyv  man the Magnificent, who abandoned  the enterprise in disgust.    That mark**  ed the highvrator mark of-the Moslem  advance, though the Turkish dream of'  a great European empire    took    some  time to dissipate.      In 1*882- Kara Mustafa again invaded Austria at the head  of-100,000 men and again laid siege to  Vienna,  only  to meet  total  defeat  at  the hands -pt; "Duke Charles of Lorraine,  and   John "Sobieski, *King7 of  Poland.  Then it was that the Turk lost his grip  on*-  Hungary, ' and    in    later    years  Rumania escaped, from liis  thraldom.  Iii 1879 the^Russq-Turkish war depriv-  ���������nd him of Bulgaria  ancl Itumelia,  establishing also the    independence    of  Serbia and.'Monten^g^ro*-'and-5 the Austrian protectorate    over    Herzegovina.  All those latter on ee Turkish possessions   are   now   included   in   the   new  state of Jugo-Slavia.  The Balkan wars of .19:12-19:0*-strip  ped the Turk Of still moro of his Euro-  peaii territory.    The Albanians obtained  their  indopetidence',     the ���������   Balkan  allies  stripped him'of Mac-edb'-hia and  Noyi Bazar, and Greece and Bulgaria  secured the whole of Thrace.      When  the Turk took stock oi! what was left  <b him inJSuropc, he found it consisted only   of Constantinople and about  200 square miles ofthe tip ofthe Balkan peninsula.      By (lie Sevres treaty  after tlie Great War    he    was    given  only the northern shore of the Turkish Straits,  Constantinople was withdrawn  from   liis   rule,  and- his  power  over    the     Bosphorus     and   the  Dardanelles    practically    nullified.      The  "Lausanne treaty restored to him Eastern    Thrace    and    Adrianople,    these,  with the shores of tho straits, remaln-  ingfthe sole remnants of his once far  extended   European   territory.       Even  more significant is the loss iu popula-  liori.      Before the World War, Turkey  liad :: about    20.000,000    people.       The  Turk now estimates    liis    number    at  S.00,0,000, but it is doubtful if a correct  census     would    show    5.000,000,     for  Greeks   and   Bulgarians    were   driven  from Asia Minor and from Thrace, and  the Armenians, sire  but   a   fraction of  their   former   figure.       Thus.   for. the  lirst" time in centuries.    Turkey'  is������������������' a  homogeneous     state,    and  time  alone  eah show  whether  the Turk   has profited by his vicissitudes.      At any rale,  bo'.will be much  more easily handled  and has far less power of mischief.  NORMAN  E. TRIMPER,  Settlers   From   Esthonia  WESTERN  EDITORS  Former Russian Admiral Looking Over  Western   Lands  for   Purpose  of  Colonization  Rear-Admiral John Pitka( retired)  of the Esthonian navy, formerly of the  Imperial Russian navy, . .is visiting  Canada in connection with the immigration of a number of Esthonian farmers. Todays he called at, the Department of Immigration and Colonization to discuss the coming, as soon  as possible, of 100 farmers, who have-  capital, with their famines from Es-  ihonia.  The principal purpose of Admiral  Piika's visit is to get information as  to what part of the -Dominion ho  considers it would be best for these  families to settle in.* If they''....are  satisfied with conditions in this country, it would mean that many more  families    would     follow. Esthonia,  which is one of the new Baltic stales  formed during the war out of part of  the old Russian empire, is chiefly an  tigricultural country.  Admiral Pitka has a farm near  Reval, the capital of Esthonia. He  intends to spend six weeks looking  over settlement prospects in Western  Canada.

Canada's export trade in 1922 on a per  capita basis, stood at $100.63, with  only New Zealand and Australia showing a higher percentage. The higher  per capita trade of the United King-  ��������� dom during the same period was  $69.36 and in the United States $34.39.  In 1913 Canada ranked seventh among  the nations in per capita export trade  with only $57.95.

Tho  Times says in this connection: "The  people of* Canada are rightly proud  of their romantic history, in which  are blended the courage and enterprise of two great nations. They  assuredly will be grateful for the  gift, which is not only a priceless  record of the brave days that have  gone, but a living inspiration to generations yet to come."

Eight billions of dollars was the public debt of Europe In 1816.      In 1913,  a  year   before   the  war,  it* had risen  to 2S billions.      During 97 years���������1816  to 1913���������the wars of Europe cost I8V2  million    dollars.      The    cost    of    the'  Great War was  200 billions, or more j  than six times the cost of all the wars !  of the previous 120 years.      The whole j  world during 120 years spent less for I  war than did the British Empire alone  during the Great War.  In the Nineteenth Century, which  may be extended a few years to take  in the Napoleonic wars from 1792 to  1815, the total loss of life was 4,500,-  00. During the Great War it was 1.2,- j  991.000. Lamentable, isn't it, that j  humanity cannot free iiself Trom. such  damnable folly?���������The Ottawa Journal.  ���������"As an all-year port, and an all-the-  world port, Vancouver has tremendous possibilities," said Alexander  Johnston, Deputy Minister of Marine  and Fisheries, on his return to Ottawa from a three weeks' visit of inspection of departmental*works on the  Pacific coast. "You can see vessels  in that harbor from almost every  country in the world, and many o������  them are coming ballast to "take away  Canada's products, principally grain.  The Panama Canal has been a big  factor in increasing tlie trade in and  out of Vancouver, and will continue  to do so at a surprising rate."  As a port from which Canada's  grain can be shipped, Mr. Johnston  also sees a great future. At present  the grain handling facilities ore limited. One elevator now in operation  has a capacity of '1,250,000 bushels,  and when the addition to this is completed this fall, that capacity will be  doubled. Next year* will see the completion of the Government elevator,  which will add 1,500,000 bushels to the  grain handling-capacity.  "It mustrbe remembered in this connection,3' added Mr. Johnston, "that  Vancouver is a 12-months port, and  this grain movement need experience  no interruption throughout the year.  With a reduction in freight rates, as  ordered recently by the Dominion  Railway Board, the movement of grain  through the Pacific port, which is really the logical outlet for the product  of at least ther western half of the  prairie provinces, must grow to large  proportions. ��������� Then, niay be expected the speedy expansion of a comparatively new industry in Vancouver,  that of milling."

According to a return brought  down in the legislature nt Victoria  last week Creston is spending more on  amusements this year than in 1*922.  Abcoading to the return $408 was collected for all 1922, whilst up till the  end of October of this year the intake  has been $418. The summer Chautau  qua accounts for at least 25 percent,  of these amounts.  At the annual meeting of Creston  Masonic Lodge on 'Wednesday night  A. B. Norris was elected master for  the ensuing year, wihh W. R. Long  and C n. Garland re-elected senior  and junior wardens respectively. The  installation of officers takes place on  Thursday night, December 27th, to  which session visiting brethern will be  most cordially welcomed.  Judge Forin of Nelson was here for  a sitting of the County Court an Tuesday afternoon, at which the case of  Bayle vs. Andestad was down for  hearing. The former is claiming damages for injury done his car in a collision with Andestad early thi-e sum-  mer. Owing to some irregularities in  the serving of the papers the case had  to be adjourned until February.  Stores will be closed Wednesday afternoon next.  The mild and moist weather that  has prevailed the past week is responsible for the robins return to Kuskanook and numerous finds of-pussy  willows in bloom. Probably the biggest joke the weatherman has perpetrated in a long time was on Saturday  morning when a full grown toad was  seen disporting himself on the walk  across the fawn at the C. O. Rodgers  residence.     Tne tailless jumping am-  phibiean had, apparently, been coaxiid  out from winter quarters under the  verandah and appeared to be quite  comfortable in Creston's December  climate in his summer attire.  A. R. Spencer has   just  completed  the installation of a radio outfit in the  -warehouse of Creston Fruit Growers'  Union, Limited.    The aerial, Or i-eceiv  ing wire, is stretched along the inside  of the roof of the warehouse, and although the equipment is not a pretentious one he reports   listening   is*   on  speeches    and   musical    programmes  from broadcast stations aa   far   south  as South Carolina points.: Mr.  Spencer installed the outfit himself and all j  interested in   the radio are  invited to  call and inspect the equipment.    S. A.  Speers is another to'-join up  with the  radio fraternity, and is.  installing   an  outfit with outside 'aerial at his residence this week.

Yahk was good for $40.  The Ledge very much regrets the  habit at Greenwood of holding Saturday night dances at country points.  After being established in Greenwood for twenty years the branch of  the Bank of Montreal is  being closed.  Kaslo council cannot see its way  clear to spend about $900 to give electric power to the new box factory just  starting in that town.  The fall fair directors at Nakusp are  trying to secure a little extra revenue  by operating a skating- rink in their  main building this winter.  The Kootenaian claims that Kaslo  this year shipped more than 28 tons of  cherries. Mirror Lake,. Kaslp's fruit  suburb, shipped eight tons,.  At Cranbrook the school trustees  have just adopted a resolution asking  the pupils not   to   make   presents   to  teachers, other than flowers.  Vernon -hospital will..borrow $5000  to carry on with until early in the year  when a drive will be put on to raise  that amount and retire the loan.  The Greenwood district war memorial was unveiled on Sunday. Bon fires  were lighted to make   it   comfortable  for those attending the ceremony.  At Greenwood trouble is being experienced to secure someone to take  on the contract of carrying the mails  to and from the railway depot and  postoffice.  Mayor W. F. Cameron of Gran-  brook announces that he'wjll not seek  re-election in January. A.- J. Raiment, Joe Jackson and J. P. Fink are  possible successors.

At Penticton the W.C.T.U. is -publicly protesting against the moral lnx-  ity shown at a recent dance given by  the Riles lodge in that town. Too  much whiskey uppears to havo been  the chief fault.

With any sort of luck we should be  able to meet next year's payment without drawing on our bank balance."  Two weeks later we set out for oiir'  new home.  It is doubtful If** I shall ever again  spend two such busy weeks. The  least of our worries was the sub-letting of our cottage. Then came the  deciding as to what furniture we could  take with us. Murray, more practical  than Mr. Herrington, had measured  the house, and I knew the size and  shape of the rooms, and the location'  of doors and windows.

"You and Margaret Anno have been  so awfully good to me," he said, and j  if  he  had  not  been  so  big  I  should |  have said there were tears not far off.

In the end  the Robertsons offered to keep the  things I would not sell���������a lovely old  walnut davenport, an oval table, an  old-fashioned bureau and "chest of  drawers,", and my electric lamp and  iron, and toaster. It was only when  I began to pack that I realized how  much I had accumulated in the few  years I had been housekeeping.  Wo moved out of our cottage on the  15th of August, spent the night at  Maudie's, and left for Herrington's  Hope the next morning, Teddy coming  with us for his two weeks* holiday.  Since August of 1914 I have hated  trains  and  railway  stations,   haunted  as they are by the sad partings and  sometimes sadder reunions of the bitter years of the war.      The morning  of our departure for Spruce Creek was  bright   and   sunnj',  the   children   and  Teddy were in picnic mood, and Murray,    though    tired     and very  quiet,  seemed reasonably content.      As  for  me, I felt as if the world had come to  an end, we might be bound for Heaven ,but for the moment no place seemed quite so desirable as Winnipeg.    Ih  spite of the early hour we had a large  crowd to see us off,    the   Robertsons,  Maudie and her mother and B. F., Mrs.  Stevenson,    and    several    of the men  from the office.    Of course it was Mrs.  Stevenson who reminded  -me   of   the  day when Murray and I had gone East.  "Who'd have thought then that you  would be  starting out as you are today?" she asked with a sigh.  That woman always has a tonic effect on me, stirs all the fighting spirit  I have.  Our train was a "three times a  week, mixed." We found seats across  tho. aisle from two nuns who were going to St. "Laurent, and whose sweet,  fates mado me ashamed of myself. If  they could look- like that when they  had neither Murray nor the twins, I  told myself, I should be positive] y  hilarious.  Our efforts to talk io each other  wore not very successful, their 'JSnglisk  and my French being equally lacking  both in qualify and quantity. But,  tln-y made me understand that they  admired the children, while I was able  to tell them that we were moving to a  farm because Murray had been ill.  Tho prettiest Sister nodded lier head  sympathetically.  "Ho a ver' brave soldier?" she asked  ���������but. I cannot write it as she said if.  "And in my country he fight? The  good C;od He surely bless the Canadians."  And then she told me in mixed  French and English tliat.her home  was near Mons, ancl I think what she  meant, me to understand was that all  the mi;n of her family had been killed  ���������fxcept her old father, and that he liad  lived Ion;? enough to wolcome the  army thai; freed the city from the  Boche.  "When I see the little button," she  finished, "i ihink of our old men and  women and tho little children, and I  p.*ay one prayer for the brave Canadian."  Murray, wonld havo been covered  with confusion had he heard her. But  hr- nnd Toddy were not with us at Ilie  linn-, ihey having found a man they  l-trow In iho next coach, nn appraiser  for a Land Coniptiny���������and, as Teddy  explained to mo. thoy had "pumped  him for sill hr> wns worth" about the  ili-'ii*]oi 1.0 which we wore going.  our 1 rain was not an express and  v.'e wero not. duo to reach Spruce  Creek until five o'clock tn the allter-  ftoon, .And al Utat wo were two hours  late, <;o li wiiH Mil er seven when, tired  i-iinl stiff and hungry, we found our-  ���������y.*������-h <*.*j at our destination.

There   were   two   stores  in   Spruce  Creek, one large and one small.     The  larger did an    old-fashioned    trading  business  and  the   owner  ol' it,  David  Wilson, was part owner of the creamery.      We met him tho next morning  and   I put  him  down  as  shrewd and  honest, but not very kindly.      He had  a nngcr in everything in tiie district  and   everyone   respected   and   trusted  him, though few seemed really to like  him.      He sold everything from farm  machinery to gramophone needles and  talcum  powder, and  in return would  accept   cash   or   produce���������butter and  eggs, poultry, meat, hides or cordwood.  t had heard Motfibr speak of men in  Winnipeg who had laid    the    foundations of their wealth in the same way  in the early days, and so I found Mr.  Wilson an interesting type, though I  hoped that we should never be in his  debt.      Mrs. Wilson, I found when I  mot her somo time later, was a quiet,  hard-working woman who lived plainly,    dressed    plainly, and deferred to  her husband in everything.     They had  no children.  "R1PST*EIN*S CASH EMPORIUM,"  which might havo been lifted bodily  from North Main Street, was the second general store. The school, a  small sawmill, the bank and a Chinese restaurant, completed the business section.  As to residences, the Wilsons had a  largo house next to the store, and tho  teacher and the bank manager lived  with them. Tho Ripstelns, Papa and  Mama, and three Hebrew cherubs, liv  ed in rooms above their store. The  blacksmith with his wife and family  had a cottage near the station, and  the Wrights, who owned the mill, a  well-filled house near the outskirts of  thc village���������the Wright family numbered eight. The station agent and  his wife and the section foreman and  his wife and family wrere provided for  in the usual way���������the Krlstiansens  too had seven or eight children. The  telegraph operator, a young Scotchman, who was everything in the bank  but manager, Wilson's clerks and two  men from the mill were permanent  residents at the hotel, where there was  usually a floating population of three  or four "drummers," insurance agents,  and the. like.  The "Boiling House" had begun as a  "stopping place" when Spruce Creek j  was the end ot fhe line, but now it is  a well-kept and quite home-like two-  storey building, known for miles  around. Mr. and Mrs. Boiling are  nlso of thc typo predestined to success, but much more popular than the  Wilsons. lt is said of them that they  never turned an honest hard-working  man away because he could not pay.  OC their four children the two eldest  boys are farming a few miles west of  Spruce Creek, the one daughter, Ethel,  is in Winnipeg going to school, and  the "baby" Jack, Is at; homo.  OC course I did not. get all this dn-  formation during my first evening in  Spruce Creek. What I have just,  written is the accumulation of many  months. That evening I saw little  but a crude and ugly village inhabited  by strangers. But Murray was interested in all that we saw, and as we  walked back to the hotel the kindly  twilight blurred the harsh lines of the  little town, and cast over it tho wonderful and mi paint able violet glamour  of a Northern nightfall.  the Kristiansen's picket fence, and  trying to carry on a conversation with  three or four tow-headed and stolid  young Swedes.

The" "mistake that people make is in not realizing that both of these have the same  cause at the root, namely poor blood.  Either   bloodlcssness or   some   other  trouble of the nerves will be found to  be the reason for   almost   every    ailment.     If you aro pale, suffering from  headaches, or breathlessnesa, with palpitation of the heart,    poor   appetite  and  weak digestion, the cause is  almost always poor blood.     If you have  nervous headaches, neuralgia, sciatica  and other nerve pains, the cause is exhausted nerves.    But run-down nerves  are also a result of poor blood, so that  tfie two chief causes of illness are one  and the same.  If your health la poor; if you are  pale, nervous or dyspeptic, you should  give Dr. Williams' Pink Pllla a fair  trial.

Hall, of  the  University of  Pennsylvania Museum.    Dr. Hall, "who  has   returned  from   Europe,   said   the  race was only a step above the animal.  "They lived in a Palaeolithic or Old  Stone Age and used crude, unpolished  flint implements," he said.      "The relics I found were in a clay bank at the  foot of a  hill.       They probably had  been washed down from    an    escaiqv  ment, where there probably had been  a settlement."  In addition to tbe human bones. Dr.  Hall said that he also unearthed the  bones of animals, evidently killed by  the prehistoric man. Ho said tho  human bones resembled those of the  Neanderthal type.
