CRESTON, B.C.,  . MARCH 21, 1930  J.XO.   *>  Predict 210,000  Bus. Wheat Crop  Operators on Reclamation Farm  Confident 30 Bushels to Acre  ���������Buy 4 Tons Marquis Seed  Wheat���������Build Two Elevators  With an early start and up-to date  equipment to operate with, all that as required is norma! weather, and a 200,000  bushel wheat crop will be harvested on  the old Reclamation Farm this season.  This is the considered opinion of the  group of experienced Washington and  Oregon farmers who arrived in Creston  last week to work approximately 7000  acres of the farm, which they have.purchased from Kootenay Valley Power_&  __evelo^eB^Compamyr LfanitecT*"  This rejpr^ente an average yield of  30 bushels per acre and the expectation  is based on yields, obtained in 1S29 by  Messrs. Bishop and Holben, who had 800  acres seeded on breaking, whereas this  year about 2000 acres will be land previ  ously under crop or fall ploughed, and  the rest of the acreage given all the cultivation necessary to assure . maximum  yields. This expectation is o k'd by the  elevator people who have on-the-spot information oh last year's crop, as well as  some of the newcomers who looked over  the area last season.  These farmers have brought with them  considerable equipment, including-half a  dozen caterpillar tractors and ploughs.  One of these "cats" is of the 30 h.p. type,  belonging to H. Christensen, and with it  is a combined plough, disc and seeder,  enabling him to do the cultivating and  planting all at one operation. In addition  *��������� to the implements brought-^th^'the-ari'  , .they..basse on ordc-fllabout "^6^000 ^orth  of additional equipment to be shipped by  the International Harvester Company  from their Canadian plant at Hamilton,  Ontario, and with this machinery" will  come two representatives of the firm to  set it up and get it in operation, with one  remaining throughout the season.  The Midlank & Pacific Grain Corporation of Calgary, Alberta, who handled  the crop produced on the farm in 1929,  are shipping the Creston farmers 8300  ^bushels of seed wheat and holding in  ^reserve another 700 bushels to be available if required. It is double-cleaned  Marquis.  The well laid plans of the new farm  operators is again evidenced in the fact  that the necessary papers have been  1 prepared seeking incorporation of the  area into what will be known as Crest-  wood Drainage, and Dyking District,  thuB giving the new owners municipal  control of their acreage. Another move  in t eir progressive development policy  is the executing of an agreement with the  Midland _is Pacific Grain Corporation to  establish two elevators at points on the  Kootenay River which have already  been located and approved by both  parties concerned. And in this connection it Is satisfactory to note that both  the Canadian Pacific nnd Great Northern  Railways are negoti ating for the transportation of the 1930 crop, which will  run to nt least 90 carloads..  To assure ample protection against  possible high water in the river the Koot-  ,enay Valley Power & Development Company, Limited, are at once putting to  wark their dredge and at least ono dragline to put the whole of th dyke on tho  farm up to standard height of 25 feet.  For the most part the old dyke will neod  only fills at the low spots which can bo  done with teams nnd scrapers, but at the  twin bridges and at Boundary Creek  considerable new dyke will be built, particularly at the latter point where tho  stream will have to be, dyked on both  sidoa The plans also include tho placing  of a pumping plant in the vicinity of the  twin bridges,  Tho people of tho district havo every  loa'Hon to look forward confident of thcr  success or the under uking. No ono  questions' the fortuity of the aroa. Tho  mm who aro to develop It are farmers of  much experience and well equipped in  every detail, and tln������ company handling  tho land** aro selling on the crop payment  plan which ia a sufficient guarantee that  thoy will operate their drodgo and dragline three shifts in order to make the  urea flaf<������ wgalnBt flooding.   Aa to interior  drainage much of this was done in  1929  and worked satisfactory.-  Anorher feature to the operations that  appeals to our friends from Oregon and  Washington is that due to bet-er market-'  ing organization, and grading, the Canadian wheat price i~ invariably higher  than the price across the line. In 1929  the spread as between the two countries  was better than 25 cents a bushel.  The farmers who have already arrived  and the acreage they will each handle is  as follows: H. Christensen,������Genessee,  Oregon, 700 aetes; M. Holben, Genessee,  Ore., 800; X.. Bishop, Pullman, Wash.,  500; J. L. Rogers, <Pendelton. Oregon,  600; Dudley Rogers, Pendelton, Oregon,  600; Mr. Panburn, Oregon, 350; Wra-  Piper. Helix, Ore., 500 p Mr. Garretson,  Wyoming, 500; Lloyd L. Starks, Helix,  pre., 400; Mr. Mcintosh, Moscow, Ida.,  500: Chas. Kirk, Athena, Ore., 500.  Still another satisfactory angle to the  jiewVarrners is that they are hand picked  New 0waters Get  ��������� *  Local Light Plant  ���������or "all Scotch together" might be the  better way to express it. The success  achieved by Messrs. i tolben and Bishop  last season proved infectious with Mesr  srs. Rogers and Kirk,who visited Creston  last su_nircer,"and who proceeded to interest other congenial neighbors, and the  latter in turn did some missionary-work  with other likely friends unt3! the company was recruited to handle the acreage available. Along with bfing agriculturists of repute they are also men who  have taken a lively interest in public  affairs, Mr. Garretson being a member  of the Wyoming state legislature.  msser  Mrs. B.

So confident are  the directors in connection with securing  water power that they are .now making  arrangements for supplies and equipment  for distributing the hydro power to serve  all the Valley from Sirdar through to and  including the Lister Area.  Mr. Amon and his associates formally  acquired the telephone end of the business in December, 1928, disposing of it to  the B.C. Telephone Company about nine  months ago, and about a year ago were  given a light and power franchise by the  village, with a guarantee of light by Sept  ember 1st, 1929, with necessary extensions given to validate the later delivery.

In addition to this light is  supplied for about 36 street lights scattered throughout the village. With  requests for light coming in from outside  the village the company is preparing to  extend its service both east and west of  town, as the present plant will develop  sufficient power to accommodate a considerable increase in consumption.

B.  Twigg, the local assistant provincial horticulturist. The meeting was in charge  of the president, Mrs. J. E. Hayden.  The correspondence included a letter  from the National Parks Association, of  which the institute is a member, asking  them to at once write the department of  the interior protesting against giving licenses to lumbermen or power companies  to develop the water powers or cut the  standing timber in any of the Dominion  park areas.  The management of Vancouver exhib-  ion wrote asking the Institute to make  a district display in needlework or any  other line at the 1930 fair at the terminal  city, and there was a letter from the  Nelson Institute advising that they were  operating an exchange and inviting Cres.  ton members to send along anything they  had to sell, which would be handled on a  10 per cent, commission .basis.  The letter from the   Board   of Trade  asking the Institute to make the erection  of a hospital   at Creston their objective  for   1930  was enthusiastically  received  and a letter will be sent the board advising that the Institute will co-operate 100  per cent, in every way possible.  '-���������Mjr^^Twigg's address had mostly to xlo  with flowers and amongst other things  favored the.pianting of perennials,  due  the .fact th at with   the deeper planting  required these would do better in a district where the moisture supply was limited.   He advocated a generous use of  sand in getting local soils in shape where  they would give best results from a none  too abundant water supply.  Mrs. Mallandaine was named convenor  of the committee on legislation, and Mrs.  Sherrington will have charge of the  child welfare committee. The tea "hostesses were Mrs. C. W. Allan, Mra. W.  H.

Evidently    Ezra    read  the Law. sentence  by sentence, and  briefly   expounded   it,   and then  the  Levites   made   the   explanation  clear  to the people.

William George Barker, V.C.,' TJ.S.CV,  Ml.C., one of Canada's greatest wartime -pilots, was killed when a new  commercial biplane he had taken "up  for a flip" crashed to earth.  Scarcely 10 minutes after he took  off from the Rockliffe aerodrome in  *he two-sftta-terr, a IFairchlld 'plane,  brought here for iaspeqtion by gov*  eminentofficials of the Department of  National Defence, civil aviation  branch, the body of the gallant bird-  .���������man. lay in the shore slush of the  Ottawa River, almost every bone  shattered. The 'plane was a tangled  wreckage;  An. official board of inquiry, composed of three members of the civil  aviation branch, has been set up to  investigate the accident and attempt  to determine its cause. To some  among the -many persons who were  ^rjitnesslhg from the ground the colonel's la^t: flight. It appeared the engine' stalled as he pulled the- machine  1 into a���������:steep cttmb. ^ ~[-r--  'Colonel-i.Barker was 'flying:, at-an  altitude of 200 feet when the engine  gaxe off a tremendous roar as the  pilot" pulled the throttle wide open  and swooped upward.  After a climb to 150 feet,* the 'plane  faltered, hung suspended momentarily  and then like a wounded bird plunged  headlong to earth.  Life was extinct when horror-  stricken eye witnesses    reached    the  *v_6Ci������SUgc. The    3_L&_������   .    *vt������0     CSS"L_  through scores and scores of hectic  war combats with his life; although  twice wounded, had apparently been  killed instantly.  "While Col. Barker was president  .ef the Fairchild Aviation Corporation of Canada, manufacturers of  -She 'plane In which he met-death, he  was not putting'the glisteningr new.  aaachine through its test paces when  the tragedy occurred.  I>. Campbell Shaw, Fairchild test  pilot, was here for the demonstration. He said that while Col. Barker  had been flying recently, he did not  wish him to go up. One of Jthe Col-  c-iel's arms was almost useless owing  to his war injuries.  The machine was in perfect shape  and the controls responded readily,  Wd Shaw, who! flew the /plane.herefrom Montreal. Previously Capt.  Shaw had flown tho. 'plane from New  York City to Montreal' and a half  hour before the Fairchild Corporation  president took the two-seater aloft,  Capt. Shaw had put it through the  paces of varied aerobatics.  It was the first time Col. Barker  had sat at the controls of a machine  of the type and other Fairchild officials suggested he might have miscalculated the power of the engino to  drive the machine in a climb.  The war record of the dead aviator,  which included the shooting down of  62 enemy 'planes and possibly others  unlisted officially, was exceeded only  among Canadian fliers by Col. W. C.  Bishop, another Victoria Cross winner.  He is survived by'his widow, formerly Mlsa A Smith, of Toronto, and  tholr seven-year-old daughter, Antoinette.

Briand was frankly gloomy.  "I have, finished my role," he said.  "And tomorrow the whole thing-will  be handed over to the delegations." ���������  Meanwhile, in spite of ofuciai optimism the decisive.point of. the conference has now been reached and it  centres almost- entirely round  France's insistence that her figures  cannot be seriously reduced. In  this connection, Mr. MacDonald has  great faith in M. Briand's power to  effect a compromise which will al-.  low reductionsT'but M. Briand, it is  recognized, will not dare to. do anything likely to be rejected by the  French chambers.

DISCUSS THE CO  OFUVESTCCr  RODUCTION  I. Ottawa.-���������Investigation of the cost  of producing livestock in Canada and  the cause of wide price fluctuations  were recommended by: the conference  of deputy ministers of agricultural  departments, officers of co-operative  agencies and producers here.

The stock raisers difficulties were aired, and a general discussion took  place, participated in by most of those  present. The greatest handicap to the  livestock industry at the present time  was the lack of confidence ia marketing!'methods, ������t was pointed out, and  improvement of these must take placet  before any betterment tould w_is������*_.   .' '  The; apparent disregard of the middleman for the interests of the primary producers was the ca_se of cess-  sidefable dissatisfaction among the  farmers, declared W. A. MacKay, of  the Canadian Livestock Co-operative.  It was clear, however, that in some  respects the producer had been careless of inefficiency, but this, ha  thought, could be overcome by a campaign of education in which ail interests could effectively co-operate. He������  suggested standardization of products, strict grading and an aggressive marketing policy. At the same  time it was urged that the same standards, applying to Canadian products  he made to apply equally to imported  products.  Recognition and support of oo-  op-erative marketing was urged. But  the matter of who should take the  lead in developing' co-operative or*  ganizations found a division ot  opinion, among those present F.'D..  Auld, deputy minister of agriculture  for Saskatchewan, urged an appropriation by the Federal Government for e:?cpenditure by the provincial governments. The latter  were more in touch with the producer and in most provinces worked effectively with him. The Alberta attitude was to aid operation,  he said, but to keep hands off organization, nnd this was true also  of Manitoba, Mr. Auld said.  The request of the Hvestock cooperative for demonstration packing  plants developed considerable discussion, but failed to get support  beyond the reminder that there is  nt present no impediment to private organizations attempting such  work.

Main  Line Construction.���������In Dairy  Business Nelson and Creston.  Creston has lost a well known  and quite oldtirne resident in the  death of Frederick Knight Hurry,  who passed away at St. Eugene  hospital, Cronbrook, late on Tuesday evening, to which institution  he had been taken almost three  weeks previously suffering from a  badly broken leg, which he sustained in a runaway mishap on  February 27th.  Deceased, who was in his 68th  year, was a native of Prince Edward Island, and came to  British  Columbia in 1884:,. finding employment as a cook in main line construction camps, with the  finishing of the line in 1885 finding him  in   the   restaurant   business    at  Donald.    The following  year  he  shifted south and landed  in Nelson where he conducted  a very  successful dairy business prior  to  going across the  line to make his  home for a few years,   and  where  he  was later married   at  Daisy,  Washington.    In   1905 he again  became a resident of Nelson, where  he remained until 1907,  when he  removed to Creston and engaged  in the dairy busininess on an  extensive scale his business including  shipments of milk and cream to  Nelson,     and    necessitated    the  erection of   the   quite   extensive  dairy plant on the ranch which is  now the property of A.  Aomfort.  In 1916, when his eldest son, Fred,  went overseas, the late Mr. Hurry  took   charge   of   the    Kootenay  Kiver Ferry, where he remained  until about- 1922,  when  he   purchased the late Dan English  and  G. M.   Benney   farms   at   West  Creston, where he engaged  quite  successfully   in   general   farming  until the time of his death.  He is survived by a family of  eight children; five daughters,  Mrs. Bell of Strathmore, Alberta;  Mrs. Baston of Hong Kong,  China; Mrs. E. Stirling, Acme,  Alberta; Mrs. Abrahamson, of  Kimberley, and Mrs. Bestwick at  home; and three sons, Fred of  Victoria, Phil." of Spokane, and  Arthur at home.  During his long residence here  the late Mr. Hurry took a part in  public affairs, serving on Creston  school board for a number of  years, and at one time a director  of the former Farmers' Institute  as well as the Stockbreeders' Association. Industry and plain  speaking were two of the outstanding characteristics of deceased  -whose pasiing will be mourned  alike by the family and many  friends.  The remains will arrive from  Cranbrook this (Thursday) afternoon, and will be taken to the  Presbyterian ������hurch where the  funeral service will be held, and  interment in Creston cemetery.

Explanations and Comments  Faith Tested nnd Triumphant, 15.  21-28.���������To escape the hostility of the  Pharisees and of Herod, and to secure  rest for Himself and His disciples,  Jesus left Galilee and went northward  Into the neighborhood of Tyre and  Sidon. From that region a Canaan-  itish woman came to Him. Mark  (7.26) calls her a Syrophoehlciah, a  Phoenician of Syria. Both terms,  Canaan and Phoenicia, werer-some-  t'mes used to denote the coast lands  of Palestine. People from Tyre and  Sidon had seen His miracles in Galilee  (Mark 3.7, 8), and f-oia them she  may have heard of Jesus power. Addressing Him as "O Lord, thou Son of  David," she besought H~n_ to cure hex  daughter who was tormented with a  demon.  "Did she think to commend herself  by this mode of address? Was it the  least bit insincere? Did it amount to  something like an attempt to sail  under false colors? For she was using  a title which meant nothing to her;  taking up - ground in her appeal to  Him to which she really had no right.  If this was so, it'may'partly account  for our Lo-d's seeming harshness in  so dealing with her that she might be  led to rest her suit upon a truer  ground. Those words of His that follow would bring home to her her mistake in addressing Him aa the Son of  David."���������F. G. Choiniondeley.  Prostrating herself at Jesus* feet,  the woman'cried, "Lord, help me!" It  was her daughter who needed help,  but she identifies herself with her  child, as is the way with mothers. The  cure of her daughter would help the  mother more than anything else, for  she loved her child more than she  loved herself.' "It is not fitting to  take the bread from the children (the  Jews), and cast St to the dogs (the  Gentiles), said Jesus.  "O, yes it is," she eagerly replied,  ���������"for even the dogs eat the crumbs  which fall from their master's table,  and I, a Gentile,-may rightfully have  what will be no loss to the children,  the Jews." "She catches Him In His  own. words," observes I__iihe_v Then  came the longed for -words of help,  coupled with words of praise..  "O woman, great Is thy faith; be it  as you wish." And her daughter was  healed from that hour."  "Not Him crucified and slain,  Not in agonies and pain,  Not with bleeding hands and feel,  Did the Monk his Master see;  But Him in the village street,  Halt and lame and blind He healed  In the house or harvest-field,  When He walked in Galilee."  ���������Longfellow.
