R. B. Cribb, with JT. W. Craig  taking down the minutes.  Financially 1929 was quite satisfactory.  Contributions to the minister's salary  had been the largest on record, and the  same also holds true of the givings to the  Maintenance and "Missionary fund, while  some reduction had been made on the  church debt, which now stands at a little  over $1200. There is a considerable demand for the church hall with rentals for  the year running close to $100.

Mrs. Truscott submitted the report of  the Ladies' Aid which had a ..cash intake  of $641 last year, and of this cloce to  $200 had been spent in wiring the church  and basement for electric light. $150  bad been donated to reduce the church  dept.

In fruit the outgo proved larger than was  anticipated due to the very dry season.  For the first time oh record Creston was  last year shipping cherries in carload  lots. There was a shrinkage in the shipments of strawberries as compared with  1������28; and during tlsOfyear four carloads  of potatoes were' imported. All points  In the Valley still continue to import  large quantities of hiy. grain and mill-  feeds. 4  Amongst the yearns development features the president referred to the start  on the East Creston" irrigation District,  the putting in of a domestic water system  at Lister, the cropping of 800 acres of  wheat on the old Reclamation Farm and  the shipping of nine carloads of wisest.  when it was considered too optimistic to  predict Valley shipments of 20,000 boxes  of apples, and yet the 1929 presidential  address indicated that considerably more  than 120,000 boxes had been shipped in  a short crop year.

Would Reclaim  25,000 Acres  Messrs. Amon arid Constable at  Victoria to Discuss Project of  Reclaiming Balance of Flats  Area Estimated at 23,000 Acres  [Victoria Colonist]  The Kootenay. Flat, on the  Kootenay River, near Creston,  under the energetic policy followed by the company which has  been reclaiming that area, has  made a good showing. Already  6,800 acres of land have been  brought under cultivation, divided  into farms varying from about  five hundred to about seven cr  eight hundred acres.  Mr. Howard Amon and Mr.  Guy Constable, who are representing the syndicate, are hi the  city now for the purpose of consulting with the Government with  respect to future bperationsln the  matter. { :  The policy of this syndicate has  been to make the reclamation  with the option of purchase of the  land following the completion . of  work. The reselling of the areas  so reclaimed is earried out by the  organization without any assistance from the Government*  The   land  is   of   rich   bottom.  i^������s'-&-*'frTj*������^k������������lv-"?.-^ "��������� *3"������*-  v -^^ '*'-' *^ *  ^^^^ i"'* "V,^  .

There are 23,000 acres more requiring to be similarly treated,  and with this the representatives  of the syndicate are ready to proceed if the arrangements can be  entered into with the local Government for acquiring the area.  These areas have been taken by  large farmers who have had practical knowledge of tne industry,  and are bringing on the land large  investment. They are for the  most part from the other side of  the line.  In. spite of the fact that it was  late last year before the reclamation was carried out, so that the  cultivation of the lands could be  proceeded with, the crop of wheat  yielded from thirty-six bushels up.  The syndicate of owners brought  the first combine into the province, cutting the wheat and threshing it at one operation as it moved  along. They brought in tractors  in numbers and thus handled the  breaking of the land and the other  farming operations on a large  scale.  It is pointed out by Mr. Amon  and Mr. Constable that the farmers in the Kootenay Flat received  from their wheat $1.40 a bushel,  being graded No, 1 hard.  In addition to the growing of"  the grain the future of this valley  in the matter of shipping is absolutely assured. The Midland Pacific Elevator Company has given  an understanding that it will erect  an elevator by the river for every  1,600 acres of . land brought  under cultivation for the growing  of wheat. The river is navigable  for car-carry in p; ferries, which  would pass along, taking the grain  from the elcvatora by tho dimple  act of spouting it into the cars.  In turn these cars would be transferred to the C.P.R. liinoat Root*  enay Lake. a  TUT!

Ministers  75������  *Ffetfli ir^ssa tise g������������^������-sast  A N*5w Hope For Tkevs\v oriel  The five-power naval conference is iz* session in London, England,, aa  thte art do ������s written. It ia a nioinentous gathering, fraught witts great  possibilities for the grood of ail raankind. Assembled around the conference  table are leading statesmen of Great Brita n. United States, Prance, Italy  and Japan, the five greatest naval powers in the world. The British, delegation also includes representatives of the self-governing Dominions and  India.  The problem confronting these eminent statesmen is to find some bsa's  of agreement whereby a stop can be put to further competitive building of  ships for warlike purposes, and, if possible, to provide for a substantial  reduction in the number of ex sting ships by scrapping some now in commission and providing that there shall not be replacement of others when  they become old and obsolete.  So ���������worded, the average swan would be sncVssed to say that it should not  be a very difficult matter to reach an agreement, but the problem is by no  means so simple as it seems to the layman. One country places greater  reliance on huge battleships than does another country, others desire many  fast cruisers of mode, ate feonnage, others feel their necessities call for  larger cruisers, some want a great number of submar nes, while others are  prepared to outlaw them altogether. Great Britain is ready to abolish both  submarines and the huge battleships, and rely on cruisers of moderate ton-  sage. The United States is agreeable to the outlawing of the submarine, "but  BtilE feels tne necessity of the big ship. France is opposed to abolishing submarines.     And so it goes. v  And there is sometnuag to be said for each contention. Great Britain  has colonies and coaling stations, oil and supply depots all over th.e wotld.  The moderately .sized cruiser will, therefore, fit into tier requirements -for  wfescs cf "hex great sbipp rtg and ecsceree. But other countries, lacking  such re-fuel'ng and supply depots, feel the need of larger ships, carrying  greater quantities of fuel and supplies, so as not to be forced back to home  ports too frequently. France is convinced that the submarine is her great  arm of naval defence inasmuch as she cannot hope to compete with Britain  and the Un ted States in the building and maintenance of large battleships  and cruisers.  However, the conference is a hopeful sign of the desire, of the nations  to lessen the burden of armaments and consequently to decrease the possibility of war. One thing is certain, and that is that the people in all countries are extremely anxious that the"r leaders should succeed in reaching  some 'unanimous conclusions. They are the ones who nave to bear the burden of taxation imposed for-these huge a_ma������nents; it is their, sons "who are  withdrawn from productive employment to man the navies, and undergo intensive training for possible future slaughter.  The most hopeful feature of the present conference is that it has been  preceded by conferences between the nations at vhicb efforts "have been  made to find common ground, to iron out old differences, to allay old  suspicions. The conference" may not achieve all that might be hoped for  and desired, but if it marks a further advance on the work of the Wash'ng-  ton Conference of some years ago, much will be gained, and the way be  paved for further reductions and understandings in another few years.  Thus step by step will progress be made.  An example of this willingness to consider and appreciate the other  fellow's viewpoint and position, instead of Ignoring or m'srepresenting  them, is found in a recent issue of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin. It  states some home truths for its United States readers. To quote 8n part:  "The salt water, I believe, is freest of all, in peace, within that jurisdiction���������the British���������where it was formerly (in centuries past) least free.  Britan accords the peaceful world, so far as her writs run, complete  maritime freedom and equality, evess within her own ports and coastal  waters. Her port charges are the same to others as to British. Foreign  ships may take part in her coastwise trade.  "Her broad theory is that maritime comssierce, under whatever flag it  may move, holds out some hope of profit to the greatest contemporaneous  seafaring peoples. No other nation is of like m'nd���������not the Italian, not the  French, not tho Japanese, not tho American. Our coastwise trade, for  example, is reserved rigidly for vessels of American reg stry, and none  other may ply between our home ports and those of our overseas territories."  Recognition of th's broad liberty accorded to tlso shipping $_ all nations  by Britain, as contrasted w th the narrower policy adhered to by all other  great naval powers, thus openly presented to tho readers of a great United  States paper, is an indication of that better and more cordial feeling towards Britain now eo evident in the neighboring repuol c. It la because such  better fee'tags do exist, and aro gnawing stronger, that hopes for tho  succeso of tho prescsst naval conforenco aro bo high.  Oldest Is Hoa. W. B.

Or Are You Subject To the Many  Ills Of This Trying Season?  The rigors of winter sap the vitality of even the strongest. Laclc of  exercise, overheated rooms and a restricted diet will gradually impoverish the blood arid Impair the health.  That is why you are susceptible to  colds���������why you find such difficulty in  throwing thens off.  To be proof against cold, flu or  other winter ailments the "body must  be nourished by rich, red, health-giving blood. A tonic medicine must be  taken to build up this rich, red blood.  Such a tonic is Dr. Williams'' Pink  Pills���������thousands recommend them as  a. remarkable blood-builder and winter tonic.  Concerning them Mrs. Jackson  Jenkins, Owen Sound, Ont.< writes:  "After a severe attack of-flu I found  myself very much run-down. I waa  advised to, try I>r. Williams' Pink  Pills and they fully restored my  health and strength. I can heartily  recommend these Pills to anyone  Whose blood is in an impoverished  condition."

Good Speakers Nervous  Would Get Out Of Addressing Crowds  If It Were Possible  Right Hon. Jan- Christian Smuts,  war hero and leading stateman, during a memorable address in Toronto,  said: "I have never learned in a long  political life to shake off a certain  nervous trep'dation when .I have to  face my fellow-men in mass formation. And I am not sure that the  political mass formation is not more  terrifying than the military formation." No doubt many other public  men could tell of similar feelings. The  Hon. William. Paterson, one of the  best known campaign speakers in  Canada, told a friend with whom he  was discussing his political career,  that despite his lengthy experience in  addressing public gatherings, if at  any meeting just before he arose,  somebody had opened a door behind  him he would have bolted through the  portal.

Winnipeg, Man.' ~ The Canadian  wheatSpoors, policy off. bedding wheat  for higher prices has helped to create  the eeriious unemployment situation  as it exists in Canada, Mayor Ralph ���������*'  K. Webb, of Winnipeg,'stated recently. His comment made at the western  conference on unemployment f rom  the pros ding chair, drew pronounced  opposition from several delegates.  "T have not attacked the wheat  pool In any shape or form," contended Mr. Webb in answer to  criticism of his stand. '3 am commenting only on the" pool's present  policy which the pool h.as a perfect  right to practice. I hope it proves  to be right.  "Hundreds of thousands of men  have been la'd off by the railways  as a result of the pool's holding  policy," estimated the Winnipeg  mayor in his first resume of the unemployment situation. He mentioned that the facts that the 1928 crop  was not yet paid for, and payments  on the 1929 crop were yet to come,  as-additional stems tending' to cause  unemployment.

Strong protest against Mayor  Webb's statements came from Ben  Lewis, of Stonewall, Man., a director of the United Farmers of Manitoba. "Theso co-operative organizations came into existence through  necessity/'' stated Mr. Lewis. "The  farmers refused to produce grain at  a loss, and insisted on a living wage.

Organization of joint stock companies  snore than 150 years ago as a means of  raising, capital for business enterprises  created a necessity for a market for  stocks. Tiie first exchange wa s organized  in London in 1773. It steadily evolved  through cumbersome methods to an  efficient system. This experience stands  behind trading systems now practiced  .Si. e&Cumxkges si������_e *Lu3_dOa_, New Tori.,  Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.  Every method is practiced to Insure  fairness to investors and prevent unethical manipulation of prices. The  system of trading is recognized as fair  and equitable throughout the world.  The Vancouver Exchange operatesunder  a Charter passed and approved foy the  Provincial Parliament on April 25,1907.  ANGE f  A market place for the buying and selling of stocks, the Vancouver Stock  Exchange is essential to commerce. If  foreign capital is to flow freely in develop*  ing "Western Canadian resources, the  prestige of this Institution must bo  maintained. The Exchange brings buyer  and seller in contact with each other,  sets a recognized current price for listed  stocks and is a barometer of the success  of individual enterprises.  An Exchange is a disinterested party In  transactions between selling and buying  interests of the public. Fluctuations  take their course in accordance with  buying and selling orders* When the  public gives buying support to certaisa  stocks, prices rise. When support is  withdrawn, prices fall. Predictions as  to possible values is a matter fine eSSest  alone   can   decide   for   himself.  And as a piece of business machinery,  the Stock Exchange attracts capital to  mining undertakings or industrial  enterprises which otherwise might never  come into being.

Doctor  beloved  Edward Howe,. Wtckfield's  and ^ venerable physician,  stopped his car* before, the ������Ed Davis  house, wh le a girl who. was vigorously polishing the sidelights by the wide  front door turned from her perch on  a low stepladder and waved a greeting. The doctor glanced at his watch,  and deciding that there was time for  a moment's relaxation, got slowly out,  threw a smile to Grandma Davis who  was at the window, assd sat down on  the porch below the girl.  "Th's big house xhal.es you a sight  of work', Charmiari Davis."  Charmian turned, dropped her polishing cloth and took a seat oh the  "stepladder-. ��������� .   .. .:������������������  "I suppose it does; but somehow X  ���������-Jo-at mind���������it's sjach a beautiful  -house. I like to remember that my  father and grandfather, were born  Itere, whereVI:.waa born myself; Th'S  .old house seems-���������well-���������perhaps you'll  laugh at me, "Doctor, but the house  seems just *as much a part of me as  <lo my ancestors."  But the doctor didn't laugh. He  looked up at the shin'ng, brass knocker on the door, put there three generations before by Luther Davis���������ta  the beautiful fanlight above fit, and at  the small-paned: windows of long ago.  Then his glance strayed from the  century-old elm at one coi'ner; of the  house to the sn ammo th syringa bush  (the pride of the village as well as oaf  Grandma Davis), at the other, and  he understood and sympathized with  the girl's' loyalty to Use home of her  forefathers.' ' . 0  Charmlan was right. It was a  beautiful old house. It stood a fair  *od from- the street, thougli it was  built in- the days when, most vVicl.-  ileld dwcTings were set flush with  the sidewalk; Charmlan'-) great-  great-grandfather had ^explained  (when cur'ous neighbors commonted^  on this fact), that ho was unwilling  to sacrlfloo the young elm tree but  mast of his questioners suspected that  the underlying rearms for this unusual proceeding wan booau.se groat-  grimt-grandma Davis "hate<3 dust."  This, at leust, was the story that  liod come dowtt to Charm lass, who declared that if lsor groatrgreat-grand-  mother could have foretold tho 'dust  of tho present day with automobiles  Charmlan smiled. The shop, which  was once. the honored parlorj ot the  old iBavis house, was "aa irmovatfon  against ��������� which Grandma had '.bitterly''.  rebelled when it was first suggested  by Charmtan's widowed mother. At  that time Charmlan was but a little  maid of six, yet she remembered  vividly the battle that took place before Grandma Davis" eap'tulated to  her daughter-in-law's irrefutable argument that it was more honorable  for a Davis to run a shop in the best  room than to go into debt.  She remembered also the day when  the fine imported carpet was removed,  and the contents of the highboy taken  ���������"up attic" in order to make room for  the rolls of calico���������the spools of silk  and! cotton���������the pins and needles���������  bright worsteds and other fasc'nating  od&s and ends which were to be paid  for "by installment," whatever that  was.  Wickfield was in sore need of a  dry goods store, for Henry Oldham,  who- had run the general store for  forty years, rarely replenished his  stock, and one had to drive clear to  Eastboro in order to match a skein  of yarn!     -'- ��������� .    -  Hence the neighbors, after a moment's shocked surprise, welcomed  the thought of buying their fancy  goods of Charmian's mother; and as  grandma, grew- olders -the little .shop,  against which she had fought so valiantly, became her greatest source of  .entertainment.  Charm'an was fifteen when ber  mother died, but she managed to finish high school, to go to, the State  Normal at Eastboro, and keep house  for Grandma; while the old lady sat  contentedly in the front window and  waited on occasional customers, unless, as was usually the case, they  waited on themselves. Indeed the  Davis house -would hardly have seemed natural without Grandma's face  peering from behind that twenty-  four-paned window. Once, stepping in  upon an errand, Ezra Bascomb had  offered to put a. whole pane of glass  in the lower sash, so she could see the  passing better.-  "I could do it easy enough some  holiday,"* Ho urgedf but the old lady'  shook her head.  "It's real kind of you, Ezra," she  ''SlM-fl-     '  JsJb^s* youYl uke]  * j,u .������        THE TASTE  hiijit-il ��������� ���������Vl'ili  sai-d   gratefully,   "but  ray  husband'.

Seems as if one pane  of .glass   wouldn't   exactly   su't   it,  though I've no doubt Charmian would  tod it easier to clean. Charmian's terribly particular about windows.   * She  says a soiled window can just spoil a  si'ce, sunny morning; and I dunno but  what she's right. Once when she was  a Hi-tie g'rl she gave me a wiper for  my spectacles. It said on it: "The world  will never "look quite right unless you  keep your glasses bright," and I presume the same thing applies to windows. No, Ezra, I'm just as obliged to  you, but X guess we'll stick to Grandpa , Davis's* old ' windows,    Charmlan  th'nfcs the world and all of them."  "Well," responded Ezra, good-naturedly, "there's no accounting for  taste. Now the first thing Emmy  wanted when wo was married, was  fiot? me to yank those small-paned  windows out o" the old bouse, and put  tn new ones. She's kept at mo ever  since, and at last I've done it; and I  will say, Grandma, that they look  handsome. But that city feller, who's  living down at Irving Plummor's, acted liko I'd broke all ten commandments when I suggested changln'  tlso windows along w th tho other Improvements he's put in. No, thore's no  accounting for taste, He bought tlso  place assd furnishings as thoy stood,  and h������'������ g!vo Hetty Plumm**e's gtvld-  on oak OKtensiori table, tho one also  sent clear to Portland for, to his hired  man, and he's ubIss' ais old mahogany  drop-leaf that Grandma Plummor  hep" hor proaei;ves������oss in the collar,I"  '' "Do,tell!"

"aorryl I clean forgot what I was  here for, Emmy wants a spool o'sllk  to snatch this sample. She's mriliin'  hwr now wttbit to wear to tho straw-  'Isferry festival,"  "Lot'w uoo," aald Grandma oag-orly,  wtrotchlhg out a hand for tho sample.  "That's real pretty. Emmy always did  look best-in blue, even when she was  a baby. You open the top drawer,  Ezra, and find a spool to match."  "Emmy said," hesitated Ezra, like a  well-trained husband, "that I was to  let Charmiais p'ck it out. iShe says X  ain't got an, eye for color."  Grandma chuckled.  "And I suppose she won't trust me,  either. I donno as I blame' her. My  eyes are getting old along with tha  rest of me. Charmian's up attic. You  whistle at the back stairs and she'll  come down. There! she's coming now.  "Dear'e," she called, "you come right  Jaere. Emmy Bascomb wants * you  should pick out a spool o' silk to  match her waist. Seems to me I remember the blues are getting sort of  low."  Yes, the little shop had been Grandma's unfailing. source of entertainment for many years. Even when  with the invasion .of automobiles,  Eastboro became snore accessible, the  neighbors did what shopp ng they  could at Grajttdma's, not only to help  he?" put,'-but .to make an excuse for  running Sn to chat during the long  days when CharaaHan was away at  school. If, nineteen years before,  "Wickfield had been shocked at the  thought- of a shop in l_awyer Davis's  best room, it bad long since become  as accustomed to it as had Grandma  herself; though at times the old lady  wondered, with an. inner chuckle,  what her husband's father was thinking as he viewed, the change from, his  mansion in the Eternal City.  For Roger Davis had been a lawyer  ���������a man of education. His office, a  small, one-story building, still stood  across the drive thi-.t led to the big  barn. He had been what in. those days  was called "a scholar and a gentleman," but, ali^oughthe ^ent his son  to college; ���������* ���������Grandpa X>avis/^ after a  year of reading- law.iiss>*bis father's  office, had "gone back to the land"*;  <anU;b'e!ng_'mo^.of'a;.4reamer than a  ^worker,'.&������'. left ���������'.i"he ���������������������������'old' -place "rather  worse off than when he fell heir to it.

Grandma was vcs*y proud of Grandpa's poems. Once one of them was  printed In the Eastboro "Telegraph,"  and the min'ster read it from the pulpit. That was a proud day for Grandma Davis. She still-kept a clipping of  the poem between the pages of her  B'ble, and read it every night after  she said her prayers. To hor loyal  heart it was a legacy more beautiful  than gold or precious stones.  And now, though che and Charmian  were left alono in ^he big house, it  never occurred to them to leave it. Tb  Grandma it was "home." To the girl  it was not only home, but something  that gave her a sense of satisfying  pr'cle. For was It not something to be  proud of, to live in a house built by  ones great-great- grandfather?
