Cook, who left  here about the middle of November  to spend a couple of months with  friends At Toronto and other Ontario points, write that eastern  Canada has been having a mild but  wet December, while Mr, Cook's  observations on the winter agricultural fair in that oity the latter  part of November will he ai great  interest. In this connection he  writes?  "We took in'the Royal Winter  JTair, whioh was wonderful; great  crowds, every    day.   The   fruit  -section  was   very large, .British  Columbia showing np well in the  classes   _eh������    showed    in,     the  Northern      Spy    -��������� class     being  especially fine, witb  British Columbia winning the five and ten  box   lots   in    this * class,   which  seemed to be quite a  setback to  Ontario growers as this is their  pet apple.      Most   of  the  B.C.  fruit was shown by the Associat-  Growers.     The  B.C.  color and  pack  showed np to splendid advantage in competition with On  t&rio fruit.    There were no pears  shown in   boxes.    Tlie only display of these was on plates, and  all of these very  inferior ,to the  pears sent by -Robert Stark to  the British   Empire Exhibition.  We feel quite certain  that Creston could have carried  off some  red libbins had she shown, and it  strikes ma that Toronto is .one  place that Creston  could exhibit  to good advantajseto the Valley."  4~~>~.~h.,l. .-" *...   ������a*-'yS*****M**EsJ*g-������Ma'J!*^^ ^  Mr. Cook, who took along -wifch  hint a supply of An jott and'Cornice  pears and Delicious apples, took  full advantage of the big Toronto  fair to make a window display at  that time in a fruit store on Queen  street, with a prominent placard  telling that thexlisplay was of fruit  grown at Oreston, B.C. and judging  by the photos we have seen of the  window certainly it was a credit in  every way to Oreston and bound to  attract no end of attention at that  particular time.  dition to the opening selection, O Canada.

Tuohey is able to be back at  work again, after being under the  doctor's care for a. few days the early  part of last week.  . Rumors that have been current  [since early in the month to the effect  that ft. B. Staples had accepted a position at Ijewiaton. Edano, were definite  ly confirmed on Friday last by himself  on his return -from a visit to that  points  Mr. Staples will be employed by the  firm of White Bros. & Criim who* in  addition to being in the frait selling  business, also operate an extensive  fruit ranch'of some 1200 acres at that  when the children of the Presbyterian (  Church had their usual year-end entertainment with Christmas, tree. The  feature of the evening was the cantata,  "Santa Claus Doings4* in which it was  possible to utilize all the available talent of the Sabbath School, tbe senior  pupils taking the leading parts in very  creditable fashion, white tne four  choruses which interspersed the piece  were particularly well tendered.

Sirdar visitors to Creston for the  "Monday last minute shopping state  that the town was busier that afternoon than txn any previous day within  their recollection.  Quite a number of the bridge crew  are spending the holiday away from  Sirdar. Jack Terrace went to Lethbridge on Monday, and Bob Quinn is  holidaying at Cranbrook.  Jas. S. Witstsn has' just completed  the erection of a comfortable workshop at his quarry here and is now in  a position to operate twelve months in  tbe year. He states that he has plenty  of work to keep him busy all winter  and that if the spring rush is up toes,  pectations he will probably have to  hire some eatra help.  well balanced as to pears, plmns,  peaches atid apples, ������nd which crop  account for much of the tonnage  handled by the firm, which totalled  almost 4d0 cars for the 1923 season.  The fruit farm is an irrigated property  and markets a brand that has won  high favor in the markets in which it  is sold.  Mr. Staples  will   be going to I_ewis-  ton to take up his new work early in  March, according to present arrangements, but it will be satisfactory to all  to know that he has no intention  of  disposing of his ouite large orchard  and  other property interests in Creston Valley.    After his recent visit to  Washington and Idaho points, as well  as an intimate knowledge of the Associated Growere marketing this year at  the other B.C. centres* prices obtained  by   Valley orchardists  are   consider-  The children of Sirdar had their  nnual Christmas tree and entertainment in the -schoolhouse on Friday  i x hi* with a very large turnout of  both youngsters and grownups.

The annual sohool concert on Friday  night attracted theuttendando oC most  lit tbe residents���������young and old alike  ���������and a programme of some twenty  numbers, nicely divided as to recitations and other sulec tions, waa presented, the children having been  trained for the event by Misn Br&nder  and Mrs. Jory, the latter presiding at  the piano, Recitations went given by  Lucy���������Lye, George Mitchell, Maud  Brpnder.

The  scholars presented two choruses in ad-  A tomato cannary capable of  turning ont 20,000 caseB (480,000  tins) of the canned paodnot and  this annual output oontaaoted  for five yeara by a firm of highest  financial standing, should prove  about the lieat Christmas���������New  Year announcement that has  ever come to the Creaton Valley.  The cannery is a straight tomato proposition and was submit  ted to Creston Board of Trade at  the end of tho week���������all that is  required locally is the providing  of sufficient capital to put in the  plant, whioh the Review undeife*.  stands will not be more than  $5000.00.  To provide the output of 20,000  cases will require the cropping to  tomatoes of approximately 100  acrea but ������w far as the limited  enquiry we have been able to  make goes, this it ia reasonably  sure to secure due to the fact  that potatoes arc no longer a  paying proposition, and land that  in the past has been cultivated to  spuds oan now more advantage  cm-sly be lined for tomatoes.  The establishment of the cannery will not only assure growers  the season's price for all grades  of tomatoes but should mean nn  increased demand for tho highest  grade tomato������ up to as many as  16.000 crates each season* Creaton Valley tomato sales havo> ouf  fered in the pa at due to the faot  that we have never been* able bo  supply  the trade  with   straight  carloads of number one stuff.  Invariably any oar lots that have  gone out have taken four or five  days to accumulate with the inevitable result that by the time  the Bret-delivered tomatoes of  any oar went on Bale they had  very seriously deteriorated.  With the pick of the select product of 100 acres always available the shipping of oars of the  htgheat class tomatoes can he  taken care of on a few hours  notice���������and if the prioe or demand for selects ������b not good the  cannery is available to handle  them.  With ample irrigation over  most of the Canyon City and  Brickson districts tomato production should have a strong  appeal at those points. Now  that Southeren Aibertn is growing more than enough potatoes  fco supply what was formerly  Creston's speoial maaket one  rancher tells us that in the Canyon-Brickson area this season  more than 100 acres went un-  cropped due to the owners hav<  feng no reasonably profitable product in sight to plant the land to.  The desire to have the cannery  in Creaton Valley is almost entirely due to the faot that the  looal tomato has superior oau-  I ning qualities. Climatic condit  ions here render it more "dry1*  and when canned it contains  more tomato and less water than  the product of any other B.C.  tJUatrict.    Neartie-fts  to market of  the canned product is also a factor, but it is really the better  quality of the Valley product  that has produced the cannery  offer.  In addition to guaranteeing to  purchase the cannery output for  a five-year term, the purchasers  are also prepared to suppy the  tins if desired."  Plans have not heen submitted  as to just how the stock in the  cannery will he allotted, but we  understand that the idea is not  to have too many shareholders  in the company.  With the sale of a five-year  output absolutely guaranteed,  along with the supply of tins, the  financial undeatakiugs of the  cannery owners will be limited  and -with reasonably efficient  management the concern should  be a very satisfactory dividend  payor. However the undertaking ia a purely local one and it is  expected that Creston Valley  capital will be available to finance 3t.  From "Bgptirca &\*"at!able prodnc-  tioe at other points the expectation in that 100 aores planted to  tomatoes should pro-wide a tonnage equal to 60,000 of the present 4 -basket orates, all of which  will he required by the cannery,  I and Sflave a surpltta of possibly  I   15,000 crates  of select  stuff to  supply   an   wxpooi/ecl    utmmitu   ������h  that dimensions provided carload  aliippting Is dona  ^oui.meetl^  *;5ai^*gi^  ^"dil^'-lftSimi^ii-e.- wh������< takes asjier-*  motto, "The; world   for Christ,'*  and as a token  of   out* .appreciation and esteem of your untiring interest and  labor  shown in  all your connection   with the society of which you  are.president,  we wish you to accept from your  friends and co workers this life  membership and pin.  Mrs. Dow very briefly but appropriately thanked the Aid members for such an appreciated token  of their appreciation, this being the  first occasion a W.M.S. life membership had been conferred in Creston. After the presentation refreshments were served, followed  by some musical numbers, the occasion proving one of the most enjoyable as well as memorable in tbe  Aid's history.  Methodist SmS.

I know that Teddy was dying to
drive, but; Murray won Id .not make the
exchange. However, hy keening the
reins tight he had no further trouhle
and, as the poet says, the-day wore on.
It -was very hot, so hot -that when
wo went from thc open into a rough
bush road the shade was welcome indeed. Wo passed small fields of almost ripened grain, and clearings
where a log housr* or a few outbuildings showed that someone was making
a home.
For tho first part of*.ouy.. journey the

lead one to expect.       The living-room
was a good size, long in proportion to
its width.     The bedroom was smaller,
but it would hold all the i'urnibare we
had brought for it, and. the room that
Mr. Herrington had used  as a storeroom, was almost as large as the living-room, /ind would do nicely for the
! children. * All .the windows were well

looking north and    the    others    east.
Thc  floors  were of good  sound  pine,
though they needed    paint,   and    the
ceilings wero of just the right height,
I     In the living-room there was a built-
[ in corner cupboard (painted ""baby car-

empty except for a row of hooks, but
1 one end of the store-room was fitted
; with shelves and clipboards.      It was
evident that Mr. Herrington had been

we went outside again. It was, we
agreed, too hot to light a fire in the
stove, so we built a camp-fire on the
shady side of the house, and had our
first meal picnic fashion.
Our-lunch finished, we resolved our- ,
selves into a committee offj-ways and
means. We had shelter, j^'ater and
fire at our-*: disposal, and fopd enough
to last at feast a week, though we had
none but Mr. Herrington's dishes to
eat it from. Teddy and Murray would
go back to Spruce Creek next morning to bring out the furniture that we
trusted would be waiting for them, and
in the meantime we would play Robin-
fson Crusoe.
' I was stiff and sore, and Murray
was tired, but Teddy, and the, twins
were all energy. Luckily one of the
trunks that came on the train with
us was the one in which I had packed
the winter bedding, so I took out a
pair of heavy army blankets and
spread them under a beautiful Balm
of Gilead, then persuader-Murray to
lie down and rest while I explored my
new kingdom with the children.
We had found.the spring before we.
hadi our lunch, and;now we followed
the course of the creek for a short distance up-stream, then came back and
visited the horses. Star and^Stockings,

the two fields of grain rippled in the
breeze, and next to the wheat field
was a strip of land where wood had
been cut and piled for drying, the
stumps unhealed-and ugly.

"There'll be some blasting to do."
"Is blasting what goes bang In cellars?" asked Rupert of the .retentive
"I think trees are nicer when they
are standing up," remarked Nicolas.
"But if you don't cut the trees you
can't have houses," teased Teddy.
"I can, too, can't I, Mother?" Nicolas appealed t-o rae. "I don't like
houses and things made of trees, I
like them of boards like our house at
home. Mother," in a whisper, "I'd
like to go back to Daddy."
So we went back to the house, to
find Murray sound asleep in spite of
ail his protestations.
"Leaving the twins on guard, Teddy
and I went into the house, which was
now bearably cool, and setup the two
cribs. While doing so we discovered
what we had missed before, a folding

The Value of Mustard
Use of Mustard as a Relish Dates Back
For Centuries
The use of mustard as a relish dates
back many hundreds of years. We
read that in "Norman times it was commonly used in. a mixture of honey,
wine and vinegar, and doubtless this
condiment served an excellent -purpose. For in those far-off days, 'people used tb eat a good deal more heavily and with less regard for their
health than we do today. Mustard is
recognized by medical authorities today to be an excellent'antidote for indigestion.
Mustard   should   ho. used   at   every
meal.      Not only does it bring out Iho
flavor of meats but it neutralises their
i richness.       It   makes   enjoyable   food

Hooper "appearing -in   the   Fargo  Daily Tribune, diversified farming has  heen   making;  rapid   strides   in   North  i Dakota within recent years.      The es-  j timated valuo of the 1928 wheat crop'  for North Jjalrota has been placed at  ������52,000,000, and the estimated value of  animal   products   used   on   farms   and  sold    during    the    year is $52,675,885.  Theso  figures Indicate that the value  of livestock products during the year  -will slightly exceed the total value of  the wheat crop.  How long will it be before the wheat  farmers   of   the   prairie  provinces   of  Western Canada awake to the necessity of changing their methods?    The  uncertainty of the single crop method  of farming has been proven oyer and  over   again   by  the   individual   experiences   of   fanners   who have   suffered  from hail, drought, frost, grasshoppers  and  the  many other  evils* that beset  the wheat grower.      What North Dakota hns  been able  to do,  Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and Alberta /ran do, and  probably   do   a   little   easier.       Mixed  -farming is the hope of the ultimate  prosperity ot the west, and the-sooner  the change is brought about the "better it will he for'"the future of farming on "these prairies.

Tkaiitsgiving Day Review  with little interference  beings. Bison Americanus has became again an article of commerce.  The reason was that there were too  many of him and even a benerjcierit  ���������sepvernment cannot sustain more buffalo than it has feed for.  At Wainwright on. the Canadian National Railways east of Edmonton, the  government buffalo park has heen the  meccn. of many tourists -who have stopped  off between trains  to go out and  look  over  the  largest remaining buffalo    herd.      The    visitors    generally  saw only an exhibition herd, but roaming   about   iu   an   enclosure   over   one  hundred square, miles in extent was a  far    greater    herd    which was unapproachable   by   any   but   the   herders  themselves.       For   from   716 head   of  animals,   the   initial  purchase   of   the  Canadian  Government in     1907.    the  herd lias increased,    until    this    year  there were  8,300 of the animals;   too  many  to be wintered, and it was decided to kill off 2,000 head.  The meat, hides and heads are all to  he marketed and thus buffalo steaks  and tongues will again be among/the  delicacies offered to Canadians and  Americans this fall.  ���������'There  is   a   tide   in   the   affairs  of  from   human   us are llkel*>" to forget 1914  The year  1905 also saw happenings of worldwide interest, including, payment by  Russia to England of an indemnity for  the North Sea "incident;" Tn 1806  both Pitt and Fox died; lti-15*saw  "Waterloo; 5n 1824 Byron died; and in  1S51 the Great Exhibition was held.

Germany, it is true, is in a condition of disorganization perilously close  t.o a state of chaos, but latest reports seem to indicate, the failure of the at-...  tempts made to break up the German republic into a group of separate states.  German money is worthless and German credit gone. Ten years ago one of  the great powers of the world, highly organized and* prosperous, Germany today is impotent. Puch is the price sh*e is paying for '.Der Tag and the attempt  to enslave mankind by world domination.'  Russia is recovering to sora������ extent, disorder and bloodshed aro disappearing and real efforts at. permanent, re-construction are in evidence now that,  the Soviet leaders hav*-)*** abandoned as hopeless their visionary plans of  extreme communism.  Austria, through The efforts of-* the League oi" Nations, is re-establishing:-;  herself and in the past two vs-acs has experienced a wonderful recovery.*  With, the war lords out of the way, and with the people anxiously striving to  develop their country in the arts of peaceful, industry, the future of Austria  i;; bright wiih promise.  "During the year war which ihreai-ened between Italy and Greece, and:  might easily have developed into another world conflagration, was happily  avoided. and while at first tho indications were thai, the League of Nations  had "Jos*, prestige Through its handling of this crisis, the final outcome has  been, to strengthen world opinion that the "League is an important and really  vital factor in controlling and directing international relations in tho world  today.

This Shakespearian  adage may bo applied to countries and  animals as well as to individuals. In  proof of this assertion there can be  cited the case of the Bison Americanus or, as it is commonly called, the  buffalo. The story of how this kingly figure of North American history  was saved from extinction by timely  action on the -part of the Canadian  Government forms an interesting paragraph in Canadian history.  Use Marks For Wallpaper  German Police Confiscate Tons  Paper Currency at Dutch  Frontier  Nearly three tons o������ paper marks  have been confiscated at the Dutch  frontier by German officials. The  currency belonged io dealers who have  been doing a big trade in exporting  notes to Holland for advertising purposes. The Butch .tradesmen buy  them in bulk io use as wallpaper and  also for insertion in cigarette packages, thus enabling the dealers to attract sales by advertising this package contains ,a one-million mark note.  Such a practice has been in rise for  a long time and the. police are now  trying to stop it.  "Why did you leave your last  place," asked the lady of the would-be  cook.

When the blood  is thin they lack nourishment and  rebel. The result is a sensation of  pain in these muscles.  Many  people  aro    frightened    into  believing that backaches   are   due   to  kidney  trouble, but the   best medical  authorities     agree    that  backache  is  very seldom due to kidney trouble.

Rather than . buy expensive coavs,  ready to freshen, farmers should consider the advantages of buying heifers  approaching their first calving.

"It is, true that during the first yetiv-  the heifer will not give as much milk  as a Cow;  but she should not be expected to do  so, as she involves but  one-quarter tho investment. ,   On the  other hand, the cow is just* as liable  as the heifer to develop a bad quarter or any other trouble; and, besides  this.^he may prove a short date milker,   and, therefore,    be    unprofitable.  This can be-avoided in the heifer, pro-  '.viding: "the owner takes proper care of  her and continues  to milk her- for a  long-term at her first lactation period.  Some of the dangers in buying  cows  are:- The cow that aborted; the irregular  breeder;   the' short  date   milker;  the   hard milker;   and  the  poor  producer.-  Good ,cows can be bought; but do  not forget that,there?are fifty or more  common cows for every good {cow. .

A man without temper is no  good. V 'v, -���������     '���������  Temper is a word worth study. It  comes from a root that''means to control and not let get away and run wild.  It means -to mix up in the right way  so that there will not be too much of  anything.  And so temper means to give a good  form to, by having just enough of what  makes that form.  And perhaps because heat is used  to mould things and helps in mixing,  temper sometimes" means heat; and  when that heat gets inside us it warms  us. And tha't inside heat is good. A  cold heart or mind will not do anything. 1  Temper is not bad.  We get a lot of good words from  temper; like temperament���������what your  character is like; and temperature���������  the amount of heat in the air; and  temperance���������the amount ofr-self-con-  tro! you "have.  Unfortunately, the heat gets often  too hot. And thenjwe are people of  bad temper. And if 3rou get too much  of that, it leads to very serious trouble.  I went once to the gallows with a  splendid-looking boy who did not mis  things right, and got so much temper  that he became a murderer!  Bad temper means lost control.

This province, which  stakes its hopes of prosperity rattier  in diversified farming than in grain  growing, has achieved feats in grain  production that will doubtless be set  down for alL time in the cereal production history of tho American continent.  There is no doubt but that this year  in  all respects Alberta  has -achieved  not only a record 3rield for the province but a remarkable one in agricultural annals, this not alone in the aggregate crop but in the acreage average and general uniformity.      Wheat  weighing over 60 pounds to the bushel  has been  reported from  all  parts of  the province, whilst there are frequent  occurrences of oats    weighing    more  ! than 40 pounds to the bushel and barley 50 pounds to the bushel.     The few-  following  cases,  taken from different  sections of Alberta, will give some indication of the phenomenal yield.

It takes two and a half days to  make the inland Journey of** 360  miles from Gothenburg to Stockholm.

When the present King George was  Duke of York, he came to Western  Canada, where I was*a young minister.  The people of Winnipeg gave him a  great reception. The streets were  lined, and flags and bunting made gay  the city.  It "was interesting to see the man  who was to become the head later of  the greatest empire in history. But  I must con Cess there was a part of the  procession that, interested me naore  than even the Prince did. '���������'__'  *-- -it Was ills -equerry:���������TIfe man. who  rode by his side oh horseback. It]  was a wonderful sight. He was on  the back of a magnificent black charger, with .glossy -flanks, and flowing  mane and tail, and arching nock and 1  prancing feet. Powerfully built, it,  seemed the ambition of^the horse to  hurl the driver from his back. Tlie  noise of the cheering and the bands  added to his restlessness. He curved  to this side and tliat; stood up on his  hind legs; tossed his head between his  feet; danced and careered around until you would wonder how anybody  could stay on his back.  But that rider was a great horsemait.  He sat there as though he were part  of the horse. With a firm hand .and  soothing voice, and a grip that kept  the bit solid in the mouth of his prancing charger, he danced up the street  a. splendid sight.  And I thought, what a fine illustration of si strong life he was.  The man who  can  sit on his fiery  i lemper, and hold it. in control.  The Bible says: "He that is slow to 1  anger is better than the mighty;  and  he that ruleth his spirit than he that  taketh a city."  1 sup_jo.se every boy here would envy  Foch as he swept-back the tide and  took irench alter trench until he  broke the Hindenburg line.
