Creston board of school trustees* report as presented to the ratepayers is as  follows:  Your board held 16 meetings during  the year, 10 regular and s.x special meetings. It also handled two police court  cases and several investigations to enforce the school act on parents who  failed to send their children to school.  For the most part such cases were  settled satisfactorily.  The board had considerable trouble  during the past winter owing to absence  of children from school on account of  lack of clothing, shoes and school books.  All of these cases were looked into and  finally adjusted with the aid of the relief  committee, who provided clothing and  shoes. The board provided ��������� books at a  cost of $20. The board wishes to thank  the relief committee for this assistance.  Some provision should be made for  handling this work during the coming  winter, es indicatioi s p>int to a reoccurrence of the conjiiians.  Inquiry has been mate, regarding the  insurance carried on school property.  The board is carrying $20,000 on the  buildings and contents.  A delegate was sent to the trustees'  convention at Chilliwaek last August.  It also had a representative at the Union  of B. C. Municipalities' convention at  Nelson, thus keeping in touch with  educational legislation for the benefit of  this school-  Some comment has been leveled at the  board because the. school did   not com-  V-_������--__ !_>������..��������� ,-f..11 -_-_.___*__.: -gaol-__���������%__.. ..������r._i.l____-fc ������^t-:4-l*_v  ....

Inrelftyrwe wish to state that ,as  the exhibit had no educational value to  the pupils it was not pushed. We  understand a new plan is being adopted  which we hope to support.  The beard has for the past year given  more attention and be. p to school sports  and a school field day In this we are  doing a good work in developing a  better idea of sport and sportsmanship  than has existed in the past, and feel  that the community is getting good  value for the forty or fifty dollars spent  by,tbe board on this effort and our  thanks are due the teaching staff for the  time and trouble that its members are  putting into this class of work.  We would also like to bring to your  attention the advancement being made  in our school along' literary lineB a d  point to the successful evening's enter-  tamment put on by the school in the  parish hall last winter. .  At the annual meeting last year your  board was instructed to -give consideration to music when engaging a new  teacher. This waa done but as the  school has no instrument, or separate  room in which to practice, not much  progress has been made. Miss Smith  has given Borne attention to this by the  use of t o parish hall.  The board has during the year opened  up a new class room at a cost of $466;  also a new laboratory with an up to-date  laboratory table to accommodate 12  students at a time, at a est of $441.  This year we will have to equip it with  chemicals and chemical appliances to  bring it up-to-date to meet the ever  increasing needs iu this line of education. The cost of this equipment and  material is in the neighborhood of $850.  This year tho board ha_ to provide  space and equipment for a fourth year  junior mntriculation class, at somo cost,  but will not have to provide an extra  teacher for this class us it can be  handled by the present high nchool  staff.  Regarding outside pupils for the  corning term wo expect to be able to  talco them in, but poanibly not beyond  that, unloas somo provision is mndo Top  moro accommodation for tho high  tH-hool.

Molnar stopped at the home of a  countryman in that vicinity while on his  way through. After eating a heavy  meal he went swimming, got into deep  water, where he was seized with cramps.  He sank before aid could be summoned.  No inquest was held. The funeral was on  Monday.   tfm. -_������������_.*��������� _n_ll  jLfira w cut  By.  _n__r_. ���������������> ���������������&������_.

Fruit Movement  Running Heavy  Returns to  Raspberry  Should Compare Favorably  With Those of Former Years  Advance Reports Indicate.  With the raspberry harvest nearing a  conclusion and cherries moving but in  full volume, soft and small fruit shipments from this section are moving at a  lively clip.  Reports indicate that shippers of raspberries will as a whole do fair'y well this  ear. Prices on this fruit are reported  as holding up very well, there being no  heavy drop in quotations. As an  average local growers will gross $2 per  crate, which differs little if any from the  average of preceding years.  Solid   cars of   cherries are going.Tfor  ward from Wynndel almost every other  day or so.   With the rasps about completed, mixed   cars   of   that   fruit   and  cherries are no longer in order.  It was unofficially reported on Tuesday that the cherry price i& stiffening on  thc prairie, and shippers here are in line  for some .better return, the glut on the  prairie market from Okanagan points  steadily subsiding."   The end of the Bing  '. Tuesday's eastbound ������4rain was the  heaviest going through this season .so  far.' It carried five express cars witH  three refrigerators, some ol the fruit going through coming from Nelson, West  Arm and Kootenay lake points.  Approximately. 500 put in an  appearance at the first Boswell regatta,  held at Boswell, on tne main lake, last  Wednesday. Visitors came from over a  wide extent of: territory, numerous  points from Calgary 6n the east to Trail  on the west being'represented.  | Notwithstanding lack of previous  Growers exPsrience in handling so ambitious an  efiort, the various committees in charge  were fully successful.

We expect an en  rollment of about 308 or 310 at school  opening as none of the students will pass  out this term on account of four years  for junior matriculation. While this  increase in attendance has taken place  the cost per pupil has been coming  down.  Our school grounds need leveling to  make more playing space available as  the school has outgrown the present  space. The board walk around the  school will have to be replaced before  school reopens so as   to avoid accidents.  The board wishes to bring to your  attention the necessity of doing something to deaden the sound between the  basement and upper class rooms. ThiB  will have to be done by reflOoring and  placing dead ners in the two, south class  rooms over the basement. Cost is estimated at about $180.

There,  may be some complaint about poor fruit  prices this season, it is true; this gives  Crestonites something to sigh oyer.  There is an excuse for cancellation of the  sighs with chuckles at recollection of the  fact that population is probably increasing here at a faster ratio than at most  any other point in Western Canada and  that building operations are expansive in  about the same proportion.  There is a very steady influx of new  homeseekers; a few are looking for  something in the shape of a 10-acre fully  improved suburban farm for 'a dollar  down and a dollar forever. But there  are some with substantial incomes looking for homes in B. C's garden of. Eden.  Here they find them, or if not built, they.  isiake then*- ���������>���������"''���������-  Representative of general activity in  this connection is the subdivision operations of JYG.Conneil, formerly of Ghin-f:  ook, Aiberta Mr. Conneli Ttri.-ded a  hotel property at Chinook to Capt.  Peters for approximately 100 acres of  ground between here and; Erickson and  lying contiguous to the south road.  Within the past couple of months he has  disposed of six blocks. Three sales were  made to local residents, two to parties  from Saskatchewan and one to a California party. General business conditions  considered, this is not a bad record at all.  The area was partly improved and a  contract has been given local residents  for cleaning up of the unimproved portion.  Three new houses are under construction on the subdivision. For his own use  and with a view to permanent residence  here, Mr. Conneli is having erected a  fully modern five-room home. Two  other houses, it is anticipated, will be  erected this fall. Several additional  prospective purchasers for blocks in this  tract are in sight. Most of these are  from the prairies.  This is only one instance of the way  things are going ahead in Creston and  vicinity. Mr. Conneli expresses himself  as immensely pleased with possibilities  hare. "Creston is without a doubt  the garden spot of interior British Columbia," he states. "Its strateicg location with regard to markets for its high  quality fruits and vegetables is an important factor; its scenic attractions  are Important to prairie residents seeking  semi-retirement or who wish to follow  horticulture as a purely commercial proposition. Its education aWucilitics arc an  added attraction and last but by no  means least, its climate hns an appeal to  folk- from tho prairies comparable to tho  luro California's climate has for  residents of tho Iowa corn belt."  Miss June E. Wigen, a pupil of the  Wynndel public school, was successful  inwinning the Governor General's .bronze  medal for district No. 9 in this'year's  high school entrance examinations.  Miss Wigen is credited with 518 marks,  and ranks third in the medal contest  and in the province. The highest on the  list is Eliazbeth A. Stewart, Lonsdale  school, North Vancouver, with 541, who  wins ^the Lieutenant-Governor's gold  medal. Second place is taken by Miss  Eva L. Dimock, Smithers, with 521  marks.  The Wynndel student's s owing is al  the more remarkable in that she is only  12 years old   and   has   been   attending  school five years.  Other successful pupils at Wynndel  are: Hilda Hagen; 433, James G. Wood,  361.  Entrance results in Creston Centre  schools:  Alice Siding���������P. Edward Argyle, 439;  Charles C.

Within the province a total ,4267  students were promoted on the recommendation of these committees, while  2935 pupils, including recommended  pupils who entered the competition for  the Governor General's medal, wrote the  departmental examinations. Of tfiese  1037 were successful.  Sometime Friday night or early on  Saturday morningfctho Creston Drug &  Boole store was broken into.

One man with  all tha good Intention in the world cannot produce then-; one generation cannot make them; it takes the accumulated care and devotion and growth, of  centuries to bring them to their velvet beauty."  And if this is true of the justly famed lawns of England, is it not equally true in every walk and achievement of life; even of life itself? The world  has progressed upward through the centuries. Man bas grown and developed  from tbe caveman era and the aborigine forest dwelLer to his present degree  of intelligence and civilization. It has taken many centuries, thousands of  generations; yet man has not yet stopped growing, developing, progressing.  Looking back through the pages of history we can trace the onward  march of civilization. It has had its setbacks; at certain periods in the  world's history it almost seemed that all the gains of the preceding years and  centuries was lost: but the light was never wholly extinguished, and out of  these dark ages there came a greater, stronger tight.  Man ������s an ambitious animal. He is also an Impatient one, and it is well  that he should be so. He is never content with things as tbey are, but is ever  striving for samethting better. But .ofttimes he allows his impatience to get]  the better of his judgment. Like a child he wants to walk before he has  gained the strength and experience to even creep, and the result is a tumble. And if he falls hard enough he learns a lesson he does not easily forget.  He profits by it. moves a i>it more slowly and warily, and thus makes real  and lasting progress.  But just as no child  learns through  the experiences of another child,  so each generation has to make its own mistakes, learn its own lessons, bitter and painful though they may be.    But unlike a ch.ld, men and women  of one generation with their developed intelligence, can and should profit by  the mistakes of earlier generations. There is aiways some justification for a  person who makes a mistake once, but there is no excuse for him if he repeats  it.        And by now man should at least bave learned the lesson that there is  no short cut to perfection; rather he should be thoroughly convinced of tbe  fact that, "like the Lawns of England," perfection   can ~ only   be   attained  through years of effort, by the accumulated care and devotion of each succeeding generation, and not by one generation impatiently declaring that all  that has gone before was wrong and proceeding to tear down what has been  built up and to replace it with some untried thing of their own devising.  Yet this is one of the gravest dangers that confronts the world today,  and if we are not careful and on guard, and place a check upon our impatience, and resist the temptation to forget and disregard the lessons of the  past, and to adopt new and untried theories, we may, instead of making pro-  press, be retrograding, revert.ng to some of the evils of the dark ages, and  endangering the light which has been growing stronger and brighter.  This danger confronts us in these times because something has slipped,  some difficulties have arisen which for the moment seem to defy solution, and  In our gropings many of us are inclined to lay the blame on the whole complicated machine of our present-day civilization and be prepared to smash it  altogether rather than patiently seek out the one or two cogs which are not  meshing properly and thus has thrown the machine out of gear.  For example, our present system of government is the result of the accumulated care, devotion, and ripe experience of the greatest minds throughout  the centuries of the past. It has been developed through one great crisis  after another. It has been shaped and moulded as the result of many experiments, with the weak and faulty finally discarded, and the strong and  true tested throughout the years retained and developed. Impatient mind.,  today, and self-seekers who pander to the current feelings of impatience, discontent and insistence upon the application of some immediate and sovereign  remedy for all our ills, are either blinded themselves or seek to blind others  to tbe infallible truth that all permanent progress, all lasting reforms, are  slow of growth. The mushroom grows to maturity in a night, and passes aa  quickly, but the oak tree which resists the storms for hundreds of years is  slow of growth. But what man of intelligence would exchange an oak for a  mushroom ?  There was a period n the world's history when all land was owned by  the Crown, the government of that day. Private individuals were not allowed  to own an acre of it, they were serfs or. at the best, tenants. With the  growth of civilization and fuller recognition of the rights of man, the right  of ownership of property was extended to all. Yet because many of these  individual owners are today in difficulty, the demand has been raised that all  land be again nationalized, and all people revert from being land owners In  their own right to tenants of the state. Such advocates are advocates of a  policy of despair; they lack vision and initiative; they confess their inability  to correct existing faults by a procesc of- reform and, throwing up their  hands, would go back hundreds of years to a system under which man was a  chattle rather than a free bom citizen.  And what these blind leaders of the blind advocate in regard to land thev  urge in connection with the whole economic structure of our modern civilization. Instead of looking forward, they look backward; Instead of vsloniiiR-  progress and a better state, improving from year to year and from generation to generation, they would sweep away the work and experience of centuries to return to a more primitive state. They have failed to learn the lesson of the 'Lawns of England," and because a few weeds or daiuleWonB have  grown up in the grass, they would plow up the whole lawn, return totbe  virgin soil, ancl begin all over again. " ,t-lura lo ms  The true course for the world ls to eradicate the weeds, but preserve tho  lawn, either re-seeding the spots requiring such treatment, or converting  them into still more beautiful bed* of flowers, adding vorlotv and S������ntS  beauty to the lawn Itself. b var,0ly an������ greater  nlni3nfiri"n������^^a������nt dlsco,J foment ������* Hnpatlor.ee. lot us remember the  sell only what Ireland could not  supply and were .also faced with a  high tariff, which the Free State was  not.

De Valera's break with England  may have bean a fine gesture at the  Sassenach, but in making it he lost  the customer who took 90 per cent.  of what Ireland had to sell.

US. losing British Trade  Through New Tariffs and Suspension  Of Gold Standard  London, England.���������The United  States has lost more than half of its  Immense trade with Great Britain  since this country adopted a tariff  policy six months ago, has been disclosed.   ' '.'"'. -::;-:~-  When the national government  came into power last fall, Britain was  the biggest customer of the United  States next to Canada, buying $50,-  j 000.000 worth of American ^oods  every month. Today that monthly  business has fallen to $21,000,000.  JBusiness men in the United States  can blame world conditions for much  of their vanished trade. But it is Britain's new tariffs, aided by the suspension of the gold standard, which have  struck the severest blow.  Combined, these two factors now  make the average United States product subject to a virtual duty of 50  per cent. Until recently, when the  anti-dumping measures were replaced,  the duty was virtually 80 per cent,  on some of the chief exports from the  United States.  So far the United States has had  no grounds for making representations, since there is no evidence yet  of discrimination.  Few United States manufacturers  have found it worth while to establish1 branch factories in Britain so as  to escape the tariff. The outlay, they  say, is too great for the advantages  to be derived.  Grains and cotton alone of the bigger United States exports are holding  their own.  HEADS MEDICAL COUNCIL  -Or. John L.

Dictatorship For Prussia  Martial  Law Has Been Declared  In  Berlin  Berlin, Germany.���������Tne federal government set up a dictatorship over the  entire state of Prussia, declaring martial law .in Berlin and the province of  Brandenburg and sweeping out of office every member of the Prussian  state cabinet.  -��������� This drastic action precipitated the  worst constitt������tio__aI conflict -since the.  founding of the Reich in 1&71.  The Prussian ��������� authorities, declaring  the dictatorship -to be contrary to law,  refused to yield to the demands of the  federal government except by force.  In many cases force was used. .  Berlin was under heavy guard tonight, and machine guns were mounted in the court in front of the federal  chancellory. Every precaution was being taken to prevent disorders.  Under on emergency decree issued  by President T'aul von Hindenburg,  Chancellor Franz von Papen became  federal commissioner administering  the state of Prussia. He named Lord  Mayor Franz Bracht of Essen as  deputy commissioner. One of Bracht's  first acts was to attempt to take over  (he state ministry of interior, and he  encountered plenty of trouble.  That ministry has for years been  under Dr. Karl Severing, sworn foe  of the present federal regime and of  Its move to sweep away the state  government. When Severing refused  to hand over the ministry a .police  captain threatened J;o drag Dr. Severing out. So Dr. Severing yielded his  post, He was not arrested.

Five 'ministers and 11 under-secre-  taries were displaced in the shake-up.  Mussolini retained for himself two of  the vacated portfolios.  '^ These constituted"the first changes  in the cabinet since September, 1929.  The shake-up was regarded as another "rotation" to bring new blood  into the government without any  change of policy.  The* five ministers who resigned  were Grandi; Alfred Rocco, minister  of justice; Antonio Mosconi, minister  of finance; Prof. Balbino Guiliano,  minister of education, and Guiseppe  Bottai, minister of corporations.

"The British Empire Is showing the  way' to the world in the attempt to  lead the world out of its trouble.,"  he said. "The Empire Conference can  go a long way in improving conditions but further steps must be taken.  Besides Its own work, however, the  conference can lay down a groundwork for extensive later developments."  Commenting on the forecasts that  an empire wheat quota would not be  one of the results of the Ottawa conference, Dr. Anderson said the Saskatchewan Government's position was  that the quota plan should be fully investigated. He realized the obstacles  in the way of an empire quota���������including the fact that Canada exports  double the wheat the empire can consume���������but he thought a subsequent  world conference might bring about  more equable distribution and a  strengthening of the price fabric.  came a statement that S.

Similarly,   an improved  market for  Canadian lumber through restrictions on dumping of the Russian  product into Great Britain means  an indirect improvement in lumbering along the Crow,   with the  result that there is a further betterment in the next door market  for local fruit.

There is an abundance of help available for the soft fruit harvest this .eapon,  with a large number of outsiders arriving  from all points hoping for a chance to  work. There has been some reduction  in the amount paid for picking. Last  season the pay per crate for strawberry  picking was 36 cents; this season it is  30c. Strawberry packing was 15c per  crate in 1931; the current figure is I2J^c.  There is more of a variation in the case  of raspberries, the scale varying in a  number of instances or localities. Fifty  cents per crate this season as against 60  last is probably about the way it figures  out on an average.

And this knowledge and experience is entirely apart from that needed in the actual defensive play of the  cards.  The defensive bidder Ss in the position of a general in a battle in which  the forces are not evenly matched and  the bidder knows this fact and knows  that his forces are inferior to the  forces of the adversaries. And it  therefore becomes necessary for the  defensive bidder to make use of  camouflage, subterfuge, and any other  strategetical weapons that come to  hand. And this must be done with the  two objectives of deceiving and intimidating the opposition, and at the  same time, not deceiving the partner.  _. ���������_. _. \. "*~V     ~    "ZIl*.

It must always be remembered that  many hands .are so distributionally  strong that they may be ussd to over-  .cail;;.������v^Ywiie_i.Tthe hand contains no  honor tricks. With this type of hand  however, the writer believes that the  overcall should not be made Immediately, but should be delayed until the  second round of bidding. Then when it  is bid, the first poas has shown to the  partner that the hand doea lack honor  tricks. And in case of high bidding by  the adversaries the danger of a premature double by the partner of the  overcaller is averted.

U.    1052  strong high  card  hand,   knows  that  any bid he makes is made with only a  slight chance that he will be allowed  to play the hand. What, then, is the  object of the overcall of an opening  bid, when  the overcaller is weak in  high card strength? Primarily there  are three objects:���������1st.   To give what  information   he    can    regarding,   his  hand to his partner, while the bidding  is at low contracts.      2nd.    Any. bid  made immediately after the opening  bid tends to disturb the smooth working of the usual. response system between the opening    bidder  .and    his  partner.  To  use  a colloqualism,   the  immediate overcall throws a "monkey  wrench"  into  the  machinery  of the  j partnership language of the adversar-  ��������� ies.     3rd.   To suggest to thc opening  bidder and his partner that the hand  of the overcaller is strong under the  hope that this thought will so intimidate them that they stop the conract-  ing short of game. These then,  are  three principal reasons for the defensive overcall.  The danger of the weak overcall  .lies in the fact that the partner of  the overcaller may be trickless, and  the defensive bidder finds himself in  the position of having to take a substantial penalty. In other words, the  weak overcaller is gambling and  therefore the gamble he takes must  be safeguarded by sufficient high  cards, so that even if the overcaller'a  partner haa a "bust" hand, thc resulting penalty will not be too large.  The overcaller must always know  whether ho is vulnerable or not. If  vulnerable the overcall must not be  made unless thc hand of the overcaller has between four and five taking tricks in the bid made, When not  vulnerable tlie overcallLng hand may  bo bid a trick or two weaker.  What then are the requirements for  an overcall?

"Th������ supply of manna has been  variously explained; but though natural phenomena may indicate the direction in which aid was vouchsafed,  they are inadequate, in their ordinary  exhibition, to account for the whole  facts recorded. One theory, which has  met with favor from many, is that  manna was simply the sugary exudation from the twigs of the tamarisk  tree, which from, the earliest years  has been called 'man,' or 'mana,' by  the Arabs. It is used by them as a  relish, and is not abundant. Another  idea has been advanced���������that of its  having been derived from the manna  rains known in various countries.

A look of concern spread itself over  Jean's face. .  "I think we ought tq.jjfet the car  out again and go and see if anything  has happened/' she said decisively.  "They may have had a spill. Were  they cotmingr by motor?"  "No. Judy drove down to Newton  Abbott in the dog-cart, and the Hol-  fords proposed hiring some sort of  conveyance from a livery stables."      '  "Well, I expect they've had a smash  of *some kind. I'm sure we ought to  go and find out! Was Judy driving  that excitable chestnut of yours?"  He shook his head.  "No���������a. perfectly well-conducted  pony, as meek as Moses. We'll give  them a quarter of an hour more. If  they don't show up by then, I'll run  the car out and we'll investigate."  The minutes crawled by on leaden  feet. Jean felt restless: and uneasy  and more than a trifle astonished that  Burke should manifest so little anx-  ieiy concerning l_i������ sister's whereabouts. Then, just before the quarter of an hour was up, there came  the shrill tinkle of a. bicycle bell, and  a boy cycled . up.. .to ���������the, ga������e,.,.and,  springing off his machine, advanced  up the cobbled path with a telegram  in Ms hand.    ':i;  Jean's face blanched, and she waited in taut suspense while Burke  ripped open ��������� th������ ominous orange-.  coloured envelope.  "What is it?" she asked nervously.  "Have they ���������is it bad news ?���������"  There was a pause before Burke  answered. Then he handed the flimsy  sheet to her, remarking shortly:  "They're hot coming."  Jean's eyes flew along the brief  message.1  "Returningr tomorrow. Am staying  the night with Holfords.   Judy."  Her face fell.  "How horribly disappointing!" Her  glance fluttered regretfully to the  faint disc of the moon showing like a  pallid ghost of itself in a sky still  luminous with the after.noon sunlight.  "I shan't see my moonlit Moor tonight after all!" she continued. "I  wonder what has happened to make  them change their plans?"  Burke volunteered no suggestion  but stood staring moodily at the  swiftly receding figure of the telegraph boy.  "Well," Jean braced herself to meet  the disappointment,. "there's nothing  for it but for you to run me back  home, Geoffrey, We ought to start at  once/"  "Very well. I'll go and get the car  out," he answered. *T suppose it's tho  only tiling to be done."  Ho moved off in thc direction of the  garage, Jean walking rather disconsolately beside him.  "I nm disappointed I" sho declared.  "I just hate the sight of a telegraph  ALMOST  FLAT ON  ued nn_Mf  Aclilng backl Will  it never stop? She's  nearly desperate.

"   .��������� .  As he spoke, Burkle vanished into  Uie semi-dusk of the ; garage^ and  presently Jean heard sounds suggestive of ineffectual attempts to start  the engine, accompanied by a muttered curse or two. A few minutes later  Burke reappeared, looking rather hot  and dusty and with a black smear  of oil across his cheek.  "You'd better go back to the bungalow," he said gruffly, "There's  something gone wrong with the'  works, and it will take me a few minutes to put matters right."  Jean nodded sympathetically arid  retreated towards the bouse, leaving  him to tinker with the car's,internals.  It was growing chilly���������the "cool of  the evening" manifests itself early up  on Dartmoor���������and she was not at all  sorry to find herself indoors. The wind  had dropped, but a curious, still sort  of coldness seemed to be permeating  the atmosphere, faintly moist, and,  as Jean stood at the window, gazing  out half abseistly, .she sunddenly noticed a delicate blur of mist veiling  the low-lying ground towards the  right of the bunga_6w. Her eyes hurriedly swept the wide expanse in front  of her. The valleys between the distant tors wre hardly visible. TheyJiad  become mere basins cupping Wan  lakes of wraithlike vapour which,  even as she watched them crept  higher, inch by inch, as though responding to some impulse of a rising  tide.  Jean had lived long-^ enough in  Devonshire by this time to know the  risks of being caught in a mist on  Dartmoor, and she sped out of the  room, intending to go to the garage  and warn Burke that he must hurry.  He met her on the threshold of the  bungalow, and she. turned back with  him into the room she had just quitted.  "Are you ready?" she asked eagerly. "There's a regular moor mist coming oh. The sooner we start the better/' ���������/���������' "��������� ������������������'���������.-_ ;-;��������������������������� -*r y-..:. .. . .-'..-  He looked at her oddly.

Jean stared at him, a vague apprehension of disagreeable possibilities  presenting itself to her mind. .Their  predicament would be an extremely  awkward one if the car remained recalcitrant!  "W n't budge?" she repeated. "But  you must make it budge,- Geoffrey.  We can't���������we can't stay here! What's  gone wrong with it?"  Burke launched out into a string  of technicalities which left Jean with  a confused feeling that the mechanism of a motor must be an invention  of the devil designed expressly for the  chastening of human nature, but from  which she succeeded in gathering the  bare skeleton fact that something had  gone radically wrong with the car's  running powers.  Her apprehensions quickened,  "Make the best of a bad job���������and  console each rt>therr" he suggested  lightly.  She frowned a little. It did not  seem to her quite the moment for  jesting.  "Don't be ridiculous, Geoffrey," she  said sharply./'We've got to get back  'somehow.' What can you do?"  "I can't do anything more than I'vo  done, riere we are and here we've got  to stay,"  "You know that's impossible," sho  said, in a quick, low voice.  He looked at her with a sudden  devil-may-care glint in his eyes.  "You never can tell before hand  whether things aro Impossible or not.  i know I usod to think that heaven  on earth was���������Impossible," he said  slowly. ''I'm not so sure now." Ho  drew a step nearer hor. "Would you  mind so dreadfully If wo had to stay  hero, little Miss Prunoa-and-PrlBms ?"

Her  eyes were very wide and dilated, but  back of the anger that blazed in them  lurked fear-^stark fear.  For a moment Burke was silent.  Then he spoke,^ with a quiet delfbeK  ateness that held something ominous,  inexorable; in its very calm.  '���������You're right," hesaid slowly.* "I've  opt been straight with you. But I'll  be frank with you how. The whole  thing���������asking yoii. to come up here  today, the moonlight expedition for  tonight���������everything���������was all fixed  up,. planned solely to get you here.  The car won't run for the simple reason that I've put it out of action. I  wasn't quite sure whether or no you  could drive a car, you see!"  "I can't," said jean. Her voice was  quite expressionless.  "No? So much Ithe better, then.  But I wasn't going to leave any weak  link in the chain by which I hold  yoii."  "By which you hold me?" she repeated dully. She felt stunned, incapable^ of ..protest, only able bo repeat;  parrot-like, the words he had just  used. >������  "Yes. Don't you understand the  position? It's clear enough, I should  think!" He laughed a little recklessly.  "Eitaier you promise to marry me, in  which case I'll take you home at once  ���������the car's not damaged beyond repair���������or you stay here, here at the  bungalow with me, until tomorrow  morning."  . J.-  With a sharp cry she retreated  from Mm, her face ash white.  "Ne:���������no! Not that!" The poignancy  of that caught-back cry wrenched  the words from his lips in hurrying,  vehement disclaimer. "You'll be perfectly safe���������as safe as though you  were my sister. Don't look like that.  . . .. Jean! Jean! Could you imagine  that I would hurt you���������you whom I  worship���������my littleTwhite love?" The  words rushed out in a torrent, hoarse  and shaken and passionately tender.  "Before God^bo! pToU'll: be utterly  safe, Jean, sweefest, belbyed���������-I swear  it!" His voice steadied"and deepened.  "Sacred as the .purest 4pve ? in the  whole world obuld hold you." He was  silent a moment; then, as the tension  in her face gradually relaxed, he went  on: "But the woHd won't know that-"  The note of tenderness was gone now,  swept away by .the resurgence of a  fierce relentlessness���������triumphant, implacable���������that meant winning at all  on: "But the world won't know that!"  he repeated. "After tonight, for your  own sake���������because a woman's reputation cannot stand the breath of  scandal, you'll be compelled to marry  me.    You'll have no choice."  Jean stood quite still, staring in  front of her. Once her lips moved, but  no sound came from them. Slowly  Laboriously almost, she was realizing  exactly what had happened, her mind  adjusting itself to the recognition of  the trap In which "She ,had been  caught. ','  Her dream had come true, after all  ���������rhorribly inconceivably true.  The heavy silence which had fallen  seemed suddenly filled with tlie  dream-Burkc's voice���������mocking and  exultant.  ". . . . . you'll be stamped with  the mark of the beast for ever.

CHAPTER XXVII.     _  Into the Mist  "Then that telegram���������that telegram from Judy���������I suppose that was  all part of the plan?.'V ;  Jean folt the futility of the question oven while she asked It. The answer waa so inevitable.  "Yes"���������briefly. "I knew that Judy  meant staying thc night with her  friends before she went away. Sho  sent the wire���������because I asked her  to."  "Judy did, that?"

She looked at him quickly, recalling  the scattered details of that afternoon  ���������Burke*3 gibes at what he believed  to,, be her fear of gossiping" tongues  and her own answer to his taunts:  "No woman can afford to ignore scandal.". And then,. foltowlqg upon that,  his sudden, curious absorption in his  own thoughts.  The remembrance of it all was like  a torchlight flashed, into a dark place,  illuminating what had been hidden  and inscrutable.   She spoke swiftly.  "And it was then���������that afternoon  ���������you thought of this ?"  He bent his head.  "Yes,5" he acknowledged.  Jean was- silent. It was all clear  now-���������penetratingly so.  "And the Holfords? Are there any  such people?" she asked/directly..  She scarcely knew what prompted  her to put so purposeless and unimportant a question. Actually, she felt  no interest at all in the answer. It  could not make the least ..difference  to her present circumstances.  Perhaps it was a little the feeling  that this, trumpery process of question and answer served to postpone  the inevitable moment when she must  face the situation in which she found  herself���������face it in its simple crude-  ness, denuded of unessential why and  wherefores.  ''Oh, yes, the,-Holfords are . quite  real," answered Burke. "And so is the  plan for an expedition to one of the  tors? by moonlight. Only it will be carried- out tomorrow Yhight instead of  tonight .Tonight is for the settlement  between you and me."  The strained expression of utter,  shocked incredulity was gradually  leaving Jean's face. The' unreal was  becoming real, and she knew now  what she was up against; the hard,  reckless quality of Burke's voice left  her no illusions.  "Geoffrey/' she said quietly, "you  won't really do this thing ?"  If she had hoped to move him by a  simple, straightforward appeal to the  best that might be in him, she failed  completely. For the moment, all that  was good in him, anything chivalrous  which the helplessness her womanhood might have Invoked, was in  abeyance. He was mere primitive  man, who had succeeded In carrying  off the woman he meant to mate and  was prepared to hold her at all costs.  "I told you I would compel you,"  he said doggedly. "That I would let  nothing in the world stand between  you and me. And I meant every word  I said. You've no way out now���������except -marriage with me,"  The imperious decision of his tone  roused hcr fighting spirit.  "Do you imagine," she broke out  scornfully, "that���������after this���������I would  ever marry you? . . . . I wouldn't  marry you if you were the last man  on earth! IM die sooner!"

Creston, compared  with    the   average   community,  might almost be termed  prosperous.     Cash receipts for fruit this  season will not   be   quite     comparable with what they were in  better years;  there  will  at least  be    some    return.    Nearly     all  residents   of    this   part  of   the  Kootenay Valley are able  to engage in a certain measure of farm  diversification,    so   that a   cash  | crop return,  while   desirable,   is  not essential  to  maintenance of  the   physicial   status   quo    in   a  world    of    material      existence.  Nearly    everybody  is  busy  and  busy people,   at least   have less  time for vain regrets.    This  condition    is  much   better than  in  the   large   metropolitan centers,  where a  considerable  proportion  of    the    population   is  perforce  obliged   to   twiddle  thumbs  and  wonder just what the government  is going to do about it.  0    0    0  The Bonners Ferry Herald reports interest being taken by  residents of that vicinity in  certain ancient river sands said to  contain gold, platinum, and sundry other rare or precious metals.  The story is that a metallurgical  plant is under construction on the  coast designed for extraction of  rare metals irrecoverable by  ordinary smelting practice. The  boys should watch out. There is  a tribe of so-called assayers  and self-styled metallurgists engaged in a highly profitable  rackett in that connection.  They claim ability to extract  platinum and other metals of the  f'um"  The other day a well dressed  and obviously extremely self-confident young man stalked into the  Review office and opened up with:  "We are doing a little preliminary  and advance advertising, and-���������"  "Certainly," was the beaming  reply, "The Review is always  always open to take ads. that do  not conflict with the business of  local merchants.

Give  some of^their ilk a piece of grindstone or broken chin aware and  they will delight you with a high  gold assay. While it has never  been tried, they could no doubt  get a sensationally high gold  assay out of the teeth of a Conservative politician.  0    0    0  Creston is fortunate in possessing such a thoroughly up=to-date  store as the Imperial  Groceteria,  and   Mr.   Speers is to  be commended     for   his   enterprise  in  establishing   it.    Designed  along  thoroughly     modern     lines,     it  provides   service    for   cash customers with a minimum of. waste  motion.    A lowered overhead and  no bad accounts, plus cash and  carry makes   it  possible  to give  buyers the advantage of lowered  prices.    The plant   is   in  all  respects the equal, except perhaps  i in size, of the self-serving stores  of     more     metropolitan     communities anywhere.    It  will  discourage the entrance into Creston  of   one    or    more   chain   store  outfits whose only interest in a  community is whatever they can  take  out   of   it.     Chain   store  magnates think  rather  carefully  about going into   a  town   when  tliey know local  competition in  their own   particular specialized  line of merchandising has to be  faced.  ooo  The   tourist season is on full  blast, but most of the tourists,  alas, do not leave so many shekels  in our midst.   Those going through  by auto are not so numerous as  formerely;  when they stop they  spend   less.   Even   thirsty   ones  from the land  of the eighteenth  amendment are conspicuous   by  their    scarcity.     One branch of  tourist traffic has increased.    You  guessed    it!   freight   passengers.  Anywhere from a half dozen to  two dozen on each freight.   Just  as many going east as west.   They  strike a balance   of trade, as it  were.   Some are of   the  professional hobo class, who  would be  "on the road" good or bad times.  But there are more who have no  choice in the matter.    One wonders what objective is attained in  this   aimless   wondering around,  since work of any kind is just as  much a rarity at one point as another.   Creston is a favorite stop-  ing place, inasmuch as the fast  eastbound train hits here about  noon ahd during the brief interval  of switching its passengers  climb  down from their perches on the  freight car hurricane decks and  each selecting a house close to the  right-of-way boldly advances and  asks for a   handout,   A   few re-,  main over and  register  at "the  Jungle" down by the Rodgers mill  and try their luck at finding something to da picking fruit.   Poor  devils!   One wonders what is going to become of them when Old  Man Winter rollsjxvunci again.  remains of the purveyor of the  great compendium of American literary crap were gently laid to rest  beneath the ash heap at the rear  of the editorial mansion. May  his soul R.I.P..  ,'We put off raising the Belling 'price as  long as possible," a Creston dealer  stated, "but we could not Btay in business iff we merely.passed out gas to consumers at tlie figure it costs us laid  down here. Our coat Here is higher fthaaT  at the coast, from which practically all  that consumed locally is procured, but it  appears that fffeight charges absorb too  much. For some reason, as yet unexplained, gas from the Vancouver refineries is sent all the way around the  main line to Golden, their down the  Kootenay Central to Cranbrook, thence  to Creston. More direct delivery via  the Kettle V alley should be possible."  U. S. Military Headstone  on Creston Indian's Grave  The price of gasoline, on' all grade  went up ia Cre3ton and vicinity recently. Under the new schedule the going price for gas is now*40 cents as compared with 32 in Vancouver, and 26 for  the American gallon at Bonners Ferry.  Local residents have been retraining  from voicing any complaint, knowing  full well the futility cf such action, as  the raise is general in all' parts of the  province. Strong objections are being  made at the coast, and there is talk in  some quarters of a concerted boycott.  A unique reminder of the  world war  tragedy is noted iri the recent placing by  the American Legion of a suitable memorial on a grave in Creston Indian  cemetery, at the Mission, the memorial  being erected to Louis F. Stone. He was  a Creston Indian. The inscription reads::  "Erected to the Everlasting Memory of  Louis F. Stone, son of Mary Sophie."  Louis enlisted in   the A. E. F. at Port  Hill; went overseas   and   was killed   or  died in France.   His  remains  were  returned  to the Mission for burial among  his own people.  Through the efforts of Boundary Post  No. 55, American Legion, a stan ard II.  S. inemorial for A. E. F. soldiers was secured. This was suitably and impressively dedicated just prior to Bonners,  Sandpoints and Coeur d'Alene American Legions* 4th of July reunion with  loci! Canadian Legion organizations.  The gesture is appreciated here as one  that further cements the traditional  international friendship so conspicuous  in the Valley.  ___  ETD������CU  LOCAL  gnu  __���������    SB     H     ^Q_.  4  4  <  I  4  4  4  I  RPPC  B__������ _____  S���������--  __  _    OO.OEy'   __,  -       1~ \JF IV^  ^/H__.
