Lister's Assistance Appreciated.  After some bard and pereistent work  at Victoria and witb B. C. government  officials by Col. Lister, M.P.P.. the sum  of $10,000 has been appropriated for  immediate improvement of the stretch, of  highway between Atbara and Sirdar.  according to information brought from  Victoria by C. O. Rodgers.  Thjs particular section of the ,"Ited  .Trail,*. though short,, is one.of the worst  bits of road between the Alberta line and  Frasere'a landing. It is: exceedingly  narrow, crooked and bumpy. To local  motorists it offers no particular difficulty  by reason of their being familiar with the  negotiation of mountain roads; however  to them, it offers considerable excuse for  profanity, particularly when they happen  to meet a. driver from the prairies.  Most of these are in a state of nervous  prostration when traversing such a  stretch as that and consequently  frequently create difficulties and even  dangers in passing.  In   connection   with,  the  decision to  make   an.   appropriation   for   such  improvement,     it  is    stated   that   by  a  particuliarly    fortuitous    circumstance,  Col. Lister and  a certain high govern  ment official happened to drive over that  mile or so of road the day  of the Boswell regatta.   In their brief journey they  met ao less than 1& cars.   The   cabinet  member  is said to   have   sweated   profusely.

That sparks from the diesel eng3ne of  CreBton Power & tight'Co', are creative  of a serious fire hafcard is maintained by  R.

On the 18th he examined the roof of the  liquor store and found that a large hole  had beon burned into the shingles;  sparks were noted flying that evening.  He thereupon filed complaint at the  company's office, but states that  apparently nothing waa done about it.  This week ho forwarded a communication to the company by registered mail  requesting attention to the matter. In  this he states: " . . .��������� now I < want to  know whether you have any intention of  eliminating this hazard and dangerous  condition.

With the return of C. O. Rodgers,  president of . Creston Reclamation  Company, to Creston a few days ago,  details become available regarding the  deal formally entered into by the provincial government wifch the local  corporation. :" '  Mr. Rodgers in company witb Frank  Staples and Col. Lister, M.P.P.. were at  Victoria in connection with final arrangement of the deal, involving 8000 acres  of provincial government land to be  dyked in the area known as Creston  Flats, the ground to be reclaimed extending from the town of Creston northward to Wynndel.  "The government has made practically every concession that the company  has contended for during the past few  years," Mr. Rodgers stated. "The  matter has been under consideration  at various times, but it is only within  the past year that things have really  been advanced to a stage where there  appeared a reascnable prospect of early  attainment of the main objective.  "This was aa agreement between t*������e  company and the provincial government j  whereby the latter would transfer to the  former 8000 acres of ground in the  Flats, in consideration of the company  undertaking to adequately dyke-...the  area and reclaim it from the spring  overflows of the Kootenay river and so  i make it available for agricultural  purposes.  ���������^Urider the provisions of an Order-in*  Council a? passed at Victoria last week,  questionably, the most important advance ������������������". in ; the reclamation plan ;sp: far  made and. definitely advances the .project to a.stage, where there is every  reasonable expectation of its being  undertaken and pushed through to a  successful conclusion.  "The terms were accepted by myself  and Mr. Staples on behalf of the  company, the two of us being duly  authorized to act as a committee for the  corporation. Title is not vested in the  cpmpany at this time and will not be so  vested until the required dykes of a  certain standard have been entirely  completed and have proven their ability  to withstand spring high water conditions for the ensuing season.  "Too much cedit cannot be given  Col. Lister, M.P.P. for the assistance  given in this connection. He has not  only proved a tower of strength in  assisting with the final closing of  arrangements, but has very consistently  helped in every way possible at various  times during preliminary stages of negotiations. During our atay at the  capital he was on the job every minute,  and  secured  for ua   without   difficuly  19?2 Fall Fair  To Smash Record  Exceedingly   Generous  ^-sponse Makes  Donor  __������*?9|j.o__-.t_; j.������jluj&cs Good JE^bse  List Possible���������Date Set jEW  Wednesday, October Fifth.  FIRST CLASS  AIRFIELD,  GOLF  COURSE,  RACE TRACK AND NEW EXHIBITION  GROUND POSSIBILITIES  Aside from economic importance to Creston and this section, realization of plans of the reclamation company provide tentatively for placing  this city on the map as a tourist and recreation center, in addition to giving  jt the finest airfield in interior B. C, according to President Rodgers.  These tentative plans provide setting aside of a sufficient acreage to be  turned over to the municipality for exhibiton grounds, with a half-mile  racetrack. Both s :ould prove great assets to the community; the golf  course alone, witbuts exceptionally beautiful surrouudings, should attract  thousands of golf enthusiasts every summer.  With ideal acreage for airfield purposes, Creston has an opportunity to  become the aviatldn center of the interior.  Another important matter is that the south dyke will be built of suffir  cient width to provide a high class and wide year-round hiehwav to the  West Creston ferry.  Shareholders are unanimously favorable to reservation of 1000 acres, to  be made available at cost to bona fide residents of this section, it is stated.  entre    to    offices    of   various   cabinet  ministers.  "In   this.  should     be    _ _  minister   of   education,   for assistance ] of mapping. Some $5000 has already been  con nee oi on     great    credit  given   Joshua Hinchcliffe,  Voluminous engineers' plans and data  have been prepared. Work in this connection included sinking of 170 different  test pits: many surveys and a ������_reat deal  given. About a year ago I piloted Mr.  Hinchliffe over the project and he was so  strongly impressed with its possibilities  that he has been a persistent booster for  it at Victoria ever since, notwithstanding  the fact that it dict^not come immediately within the purview of his department. y.TY-'  "Premier  T-a+.li ____-������.  ��������� w__^w.-.,  .'���������1    _l    *  Tolmie  __a_������  was  _a - mo_l m i  also very sym  __e  #-**_5n  VmmA\M0  expended in this connection.  The dyke will run almost due west  from Creston to the Kootenay river and  then follow that stream along the mean-  derings of its east bank to a point near  Wynndel. 220,300 yards of dirt will  have to be moved. Plans provide that  the top of the dyke at all points is to be  a minimum two feet above the 1916-high  water mark���������the highest on  record es-  . Creston's next big annual event is the  Fall Fair, scheduled to be held this year  on Wednesday. October 5. The  exhibition will open at 10 a.m.������ with no  letup in the proceedings thereafter for  the rest of the day. A dance in the  evening will bring it to a close.  The prize list this year will be unusually complete. Eight divisions are  included. - These consist of: Fruits,  Garden and Field Produce, Farm Produce, Floral, Domestic Science, Needlework, School Fair, and Livestock.  Most of the school fair part of the  prize list was printed and distributed  last April.    -������  All committees are working most  diligently towards getting things in  shape and with a view to making the  fair one of the most successful events of  its kind ever held here.  Exhibits from Wynndel, Lister, etc.,  will ba transported and placed free of  charge if number of entries warrant.  A feature of the prize list this year  will be the cover design, especially  drawn in pen and ink by D. Bradley.  It is most artistic, with a breadth of  treatment and technique only found in  the work of the best commercial artists.   ._..���������.   , .Y^T%p3.^4ro,?^  ^rtheseT^ree^d^oi^Kfeter resulted lithe entire cabinet being* fully alive to  the ecOnqmicJmportance of theT project  to this regioii and the province generally,  so. that the sessions.at Victoria,were  merely held Jf or the ironing of a few de-  details "  The next stage to be advanced, Mr.  Rodgers stated, was with regard to  reaching an understanding with the  Indian department at Ottawa as to the  dyking of the Indian lands, comprising  some 2000 acres, and which must be included in the project in order to make  the whole practicable.  In regard to this, splendid service is  being rendered by Wm. K. Esling, M.P.  for Kootenay West, tvho has been  awakening Ottawa to the value of the  scheme. Correspondence received from  Mr. Esling a few days ago indicates that  no difficulty may be anticipated now in  reaching a satisfactory arrangement with  the Indian department.  The company does not" seek any of  the Indian lands involved, only asking  that the Indian department finance the  dyking of that area in conformity with  the rest of the plan.  ___.._  ,_������e.r_t iKs*-   nf 1 ������Q,*__<-V__������ ������_������.������(    ������-V.���������  fiood."   t.; :.y��������� ,-T,.'yV:;.!S~"^Y ":*"."

It is too/early yet to say just when  work can be commenced, The Indian  department's formal consent has to be  obtained; details of financing remain to  be threshed out.  It is also a little early to make any  definite statement with regard to plans  for  the   reclaimed   area.   Various  and  sundry ideas have been advanced.   The  most important part is that   after all,  from    an agricultural    standpoint, the  element  of   speculative   experiment  is  eliminated.    The   success   achieved  in  wheat growing   on  the reclaimed area-  west of the river between  West Creston  and   the   Boundary   line   has   proven  possibilities   and supplementing this is  the  tremendous development   resulting  from reclamation of Valley lands on the  Idaho side, and where not only wheat,  but seed peas and other big money crops  have been so  prolific in yield aa to make  that area one cf the moat prosperous  agricultural    sections    of    the    Pacific  Northwest.

Oh Yeah I  Cranbrook Courier: The village  council at Creaton devoted nearly, a  whole evening tost week discussing tho  advinability of a bylaw regulating  weights and monsuraa. Several cases of  short weight and uhort meuauro were  cited. One was tho case of ft widow who  bought wood from tho dealor, but was  BUBplcious of tho measurement. Tho  wood had boon thrown in a pile, and  whon otacked It foil considerably short of  tho amount of wood provided for as n  Btandprd rick.. The same applied to hay  and coal, and one councilman believed  thnt it       ������.ny ci.boh nn littlo as 1200  pounds of hay was delivered for a ton.  Here in Cranbrook we know such a thing  could not happen, for in the first place  there is a bylaw preventing it, and in the  second place all of our dealers are honest  men anyhow!

Interesting and highly useful experimental work with wheat, corn, sunflowers  and peas is being conducted at the  Kelsey ranch, Erickson. Plans provide  for making strong entries at the projected Word's Grain Show, scheduled to  be held at Regina in July of next year.  Entries have to be made a very considerable time in advance and the entry  fee is high, ranging from $5 to $10 per  exhibit. Mr. and Mrs. Kelsey state that  in view of the outlay required, and  possibilities of valuable publicity to the  district resulting in the case of prizes  being captured in competition with exhibitors from all parts of the Dominion,  any donations towards the end sought  will be greatly appreciated.  One sheaf of Reward wheat from the  Kelsey's is at the Vancouver Exhibition.  Should tbis entry capture top honors  there it is intended to send it to the  show at Regina.  Because of the possibilities of highly  profitable seed pea production here and  on the Flats after reclamation, much interest attaches to what is being done  with that vegetable at the Kelsey place.  Out of the crop this season somo 28 or  80 pounds of peas have been handpicked,  carefully counted and weighed. The  seed from which this selection was  secured came from Trelle, at Wombley,  Sask.  Flint und Dent.classes of corn  also been given much attention,  for these variotics was secured  prize winning growers at tho  Chicago seed show. Another selection  has been made of sunflower Beed, twenty  pounds of the Mammoth vurioty having been produced.  Asido from merit on numerous technical points, great care lias to bo  exercised in selection and.grading*  Peas, for instance, to have any chance  at all, must not only be handpicked, but  counted out so that .thoro Is just exactly  so many to recognized units of weight.  .

Within recent  months, for example, there has been the international conference on disarmament held at Geneva, the Lausanne conference on war debts and reparations,  the Imperial Economic Conference at Ottawa on preferential trade within  the British Empire, and very shortly a world economic conference is to assemble at London, England. Are they worth while, and have they really  accomplished anything-, people are asking.  Tbere are, of course, certain types of peoplg who belittle all attempts  to remedy evils and achieve reforms by way of negotiation and compromise.  They predict failure for each conference in advance of its meeting, perhaps,  in many cases, the wish being father ta the prediction, because they hold  to the view that the existing financial and economic system of the world  cannot be remedied, but must be torn up iraot ajid branch, completely  destroyed, ancl replaced by an entirely different system founded on new  principles. Others, less radical, have seemingly lost confidence in the ability  or willingness of t_ae nations to abandon their extremely selfish, nationalistic  policies and programmes and work together for the comnaoa good of all.  While progress has been slow, and many of these conferences disappointing in the tangible results accomplished, it would be a great mistake to regard  them as failures- For example, while.the world still has a long way to travel  along the road of total disarmament, it is travelling ia that direction, as witness the real advance made in the limitation in the number, size, and power of  naval craft to be __*a___ta__ie<lby the leading maritime nations. Disarmament  can only be brought -about by a restoration of confidence and trust among  peoples; it ia a matter of education and each conference held is.a mighty  factor In enlightening people's mind and stirring their consciences. Each  such conference helps each nation to more fully understand and appreciate  the viewpoint of other nations. And this is an essential first step to definite'  action.  Complete failure* was predicted in. advance for the Lausanne conference  oa war debts and reparations. Of course it did not achieve everything that  was boped of It. No conference ever does, probably never will. -But the  Lausanne conference did. as is now almost universally admitted, accomplish  a great deal and take a long step forward towards the goal of a reasonable  settlement of this most vexing problem which has "been an outstanding  obstacle to the world's restoration to financial and economic bealth.  Failure was likewise predicted for tbe Imperial Economic Conference at  Ottawa.     Whatever its accomplishments,���������and these will not be fully known  until the details of the agreements signed are laid before the respective parliaments of the Empire,���������the conference did not end in failure. It failed of  course to reach all the decisions that many people desired, and, on the other  hand, it failed in the eyes of others because it reached decisions to do things  not acceptable  to  them.    Where  so  many  conflicting interests  haa to T>e  reconciled, and, failing complete agreement, compromises reached, it follows  tbat what ia regarded as failure by one Interest or group is acclaimed as  success by the  opposing group,  and vice versa.       Success  or failure are,  therefore, comparative terms.     The main thing is that.each component part  of the Empire now understands the position, problems and economic difficulties of all other parts a3 never before, and each has displayed a willingness  to go as far as possible in solving those problems and overcoming those  difficulties.     That Is all gain, and full of promise for the future. The confer-  once really sounds the death-knell of extremist trade restrictiontat policies  and unlocks the door of freer and wider Empire trade.      This must inevitably lead to freer and wider world trade.  Finally, those who are critical and skeptical of the value of these conferences will do well to remember that in olden days nations did not trouble  very much to confer about their difficulties and strive to find a way out  compatible with tho dignity and interests of all; rather they were glad to  find even the smallest excuse V> wage war on each other. The world is turning away from, that barbarism, and conferences are the medium, slow and  tedious perhaps, but In the final result more beneficial and lasting, replacing  war. True, international conferences cost money, fairly large sums sometimes but a mere,bagatelle to the tremendous cost of war.  More Divorces In West  Increase Is Shown In tho Four  - Western Provinces  Divorce -;___ decreasing in Quebec,  Ontario, &bva Scotia, Prince Edward  Island and-the Yukon, but in New  Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan,  Aiberta, ^British Columbia and tbe  North West-Territories.it is Increasing according, to figures taken at the  census",by the Dominion Bureau of  Statistics. There are In ail Canada  7,441 divorced parsons as compared  with 7,401 ten years before. They  numbered 4,400 In 1012, and only 661  In 1901.  The striking feature of the divorce  situation in Canada ia that in the old  provinces with an older Canadian  population, more homogeneous and  with more of its population province-  born, divorce has decreased. But in  the newer provinces where there has  been a larger percentage of incoming  population divorce has Increased. The  most notable example of this 13 British Columbia where the proportion of  those born outside that province Is  the greatest in Canada, the greatest  increase In divorce has taken place.  The increase ia British Columb: a is  622 in a decade, or from 1,030 to 1652.  That Increase Is greater than the total increase in Canada which was  only 40. Alberta coming second in  the category of non-province born, increased 312, or from 102 to 1.014.  Manitoba, which has a greater urban  population than Saskatchewan increased from 506 to 603, Saskatchewan from 570 to 667.  The increases in the four western  provinces was 1,178, while the decreases in the eastern provinces  amounting to 1,138. Some of the dif-  f^r^ncs .Qjp course would be due *"o  difference in divorce legislation.  An Oasis  Of Beaisly  New Park In  the  Cypress ' Hills Of  Saskatchewan  The motrlst on the south road out  of Maple' Creek, Saskatchewan,  climbs 1,800 feet to the newly created Cypress Hills Provincial Park, an  area of eighteen square' mines of pine  covered hills that lies twenty miles  south of the town. Here have been established by the government a forest reserve and game sanctuary., The  streams are clear and cool, well suited  to the rainbow and Loch. Leycn trout  fry placed in them some years ago.  As a result of the wars between the  Crees, Assinlboines and Blackfeet,  this area, became a "No Stan's Land,"  ,was little hunted and became a haven for wild life, and to this day it has  been a favoured spot. The traveller  Is hardly aware of approaching the  park, until suddenly topping the crest  of hills there breaks into view a beautiful scene of forest and stream. It is  truly an oasis of beauty, located in  the Cypress range of broken hills,  scarred with deep ravines, fantastic  crags and rounded elevations.  Dams placed- in Belanger and Lone  Pine creeks, tributaries of the  Frenchman. River, whicb loses Itself  across the Montana Border, have created two charming lakes,. 4,000 feet  above sea level, known as Loch Lomond and Lock Leven, having a  water area of approximately 200  acres. Ia addition bo rustic bridges  that punctuate the woodland paths in  the new park, there -will fee found accommodation for the vacationist that  includes splendid camp sites, a sixteen room sleeping building, and a  nearby kitchen house.

Groat Risk Of Accidents When __.ri.vor  Is Drowsy  ^ Regulations now demand that drivers of motor trucks shall remain on  duty for only a certain period of time,  so that there may be less risk of them  falling: asleep at the wheel and bringing injury to themselves or others on  the road. This is a sensible provision,  the full force of which Is' revealed  in the number of [ highway accidents  directly traceable to fatigue on the  part of drivers, and if it were possible for operators of private motor  vehicles voluntarily to adopt the same  rules, there is no doubt whatever that  there would be a marked lessening'  in the number of traffic accidents.  Safe operation of motor vehicles necessitates unceasing vigilance on Tthe  part <of driver. It cannot be carried  out without great risk, especially  on .much-travelled Toads, if the driver even nods at the wheel. And if ho  is so overcome -with fatigue that - he  falls asleep, the consequences may be  (and very often are) most disastrous.  Is-  Finding  Fav6r  In a_ .

Problems of reorganization and consolidation of lines, construction and institution of "improved  practices had required more men of  , executive type.

HAYES, Editor and Ownfer  CRESTON, B.C.,   FRIDAY, SEPT. 2  CRESTON  A    CONVENTION  CENTRE  The reputation Creston is gaining for hospitality and the inclination of so many to come here  justifies anticipation of this city  figuring as a convention centre in  the not far distant future.  Its location midway between  Alberta and the Boundary district  is stratagic in this connection-  It has unusual scenic attractions  in addition. But it lacks a suitable  convention hall or other place for  large gatherings of Rotary clubs,  the Kiwanis, Eagles, Elks or  Shriners; also there is a lamentable shortage of requisite hotel  accommodation. What we have  in that line is insufficient to even  take care of a Kootenay convention of the Grand Army of the  Republic.  However, .provided reclamation, canyon power development  or other dam (or dyke) affairs  come to pass and are realized in  accordance with expectations, it  is possible that these wants will in  due time be provided; indeed, it  is not stretching imagination too  much to visualize the time when  Creston will be in a position to  challenge Nelson's claim to interior metropolitanism, while  such points as Yahk, Cranbrook  and Moyie will in the ordinary  course of events come to rank as  suburban adjuncts of this  community.  trains with tramps.  Education in skilled trades will  scarcely improve the situation,  since our competitive system  forces the uses of mechanical re-  bots to an increasing degree.  The problem is a serious one  and deserves more attention than  it has been receiving.  Opportunity  comes  by telephone  When a job is available the  telephone   usually   brings the  word.  An opening occurs and the  employer reaches for the telephone. Unfortunately, the  man he has in mind for the  position is without a telephone,  so the job goes to another man  who has one.  Opportunity used   to   knock;  QUI BONO?  Roughly, from 25% to 33% of  money raised by taxation, excepting Dominion levies, is spent  for educational purposes.  There is now a tendency manifest to curtail such expenditure.  Taxpayers are on the verge of  going on strike. Many are oh in-  j voluntary strike. They would  like to be able to pay their tax  bills but can't.  One wonders if, after all, in  addition to being damned by too  much legislation, the general  public is likewise suffering to the  same extent from too much  education.  If there was some place to 'put  all of the products of schools and  universities, the situation would  not be so bad. As it is such product now finds itself in a blind  alley. Educated girls block  chances of educated boys "for  white collar jobs; the boys have  no outlet for themselves in an  age when robots have displaced  every kind of skilled labor to an  almost unimaginable degree.  Hence, there is a rapid augmentation of the criminal class, and  the highways have become clogged with   hitchikers and   freight  EXPORTING CHERRIES  That Creston and other Kootenay cherry/growing sections have  possibilities of escaping entire dependence on the prairies as a  market for cherries is indicated  by the success achieved this  season in exporting a quantity  of this premier Kootenay fruit to  London, England.  The shipment went cold storage  across the continent and the Atlantic, landing ih Covent Garden  14 ��������� days after picking. "When  they were taken out of cold storage they were as fresh as if  they had just been picked," the  news reports state.  The entire lot was disposed of  to eager buyers within a short  time, it is stated; it is also learned the Kootenay product was  markedly superior to the usual  run of cheriy offerings on London  markets.

Visits were -made   to  friends and relatives, and a large number  of   acquaintances   renewed   at -various  points.   "Creston  is in   every way far  superior to prairie towns of the same or  even     considerably    larger  size,"   Mr.  Conneli  stated.    "There    is    relatively | ^m  more doing   here and   a   much   greater J- -  spirit of optimism in''.evidence;, notwithstanding this I am quite sure that  Creston people and those of other  points in  the Valley are not fully appreciative of  this.   One has to go to less fortunate  areas to realize It.   I could not help but  notice a general downcast spirit  outside,  and it seemed little use to try and cheer  people up with observations about there  having been as bad or tough times as we  are having now  and that they eventually  passed away.   There is going to  be a big influx into this locality from  the prairies in the near future.   Everyone seemed to be  asking about British  Columbia.   What    Creston    needs    is  plenty^   of   publicity.   There   is money  available for investment here if the right  people are contacted."  R. J.

Their route one way lay along  the coast and one  way   by   the   inland  highways.* They found the -road system  wonderful;,   did   not   find  the  tourist  traffic very heavy, though large numbers  of hitch-hifters  were   in evidence.   Los  Angeles waB reached, in time for the tail-  end of the Olympics, so that.it was im-  poBB.ble to^see very tnucfr of that.   The  Mexican line was crossed/ at T3a Jauna  and a short stay made., in that ��������� Interesting" and picturesque locality.

The relief settlement plan  Is for unemployed families resident  in the provinces, who are in receipt of  ^direct relief, and are qualified and  physically fit to undertake life on the  farm.

The underlying principle of the plan Is to help  '- people to help themselves by enabling  families to contribute to their own  maintenance and eventually become  self-supporting. Public moneys that  would otherwise he spent in the form  of direct relief to maintain families in  comparative idleness will be expended toward assisting qualified families  to get a modest start on the land.  wfrrnTr  pi mm  Recognition Deserved  A "Long Service" prize was presented to an old woman of Bologna,  3taly, named Francesco.

Two years ago, the original buildings were augmented by a new modern structure of cut stone and brick,  containing assembly hall, dining-  rpom, class-rooms and gymnasium, all  with ample accomodation for 190 pupils. University matriculation is an  objective, but to meet the needs of  those who wish to devote themselves  caors particularly to the study of literature, history, music and art, a  course is offered leading to the River-  bend Diploma, given upon completion  of Grade m.  Miss Foster, who is a graduate of  McGill and Oxford, is assisted by Miss  Laura Cull, as head of the junior  "school, and the more recent acquisitions to the teaching staff include Miss  Marian Macdougali, science; Miss  Mary Chestnut, Classics; Miss  Beatrice Wilson, director of religious  education; Miss Barbara May Erith,  English; and Miss Gwen M. Bowman,  physical education.  Miss' Macdougall, a graduate of  Dalhousie University, comes to the  Winnipeg school ,as a qualified teacher of the science required for senior  high school work, specializing in  University and the Ontario.College of  chemistry.    Miss Chestnut, Manitoba  Education, has taught successfully in  Manitoba high schools. Misa Wilson,  in addition to her course at University College, Toronto, has studied at  Emmanuel College and the United  Church Training School, and has taken the regular normal school training  course with subsequent success as a  teacher. Miss Erith comes from London University with honors in English. She holds a London teacher's diploma and has had experience in English and American girls' schools.  Thoroughly qualified to .teach corrective gymnastic, dancing and  swimming, as well as apparatus work,  Miss Bowman Is a graduate of the  Margaret Eaton School of Physical  Education, Toronto, and has had previous experience in a girls' school...  Due to the fact that the Winnipeg  city schools are this year discontinuing the teaching of Grade XH., increased emphasis -. has been placed  upon this grade at Riverbend. The  members of the teaching staff are all  fully qualified, and are specialists in  the subjects taught.  The school's representative Board  of Governors includes James A. Richardson. L.L.D..

Explanations and Comments  The Evils Of Intemperance, verses  10-12:���������"Woe unto them that rise up  early in the morntag that. they may  follow strong <3r_nkl". exclaims the  prophet Isaiah. "Woe to them that  continue drinking late into the night  till wine inSame them," excites  them to madness. Compare thte apt  Indian phrase, firewater.  "In every vice there is a stage be-,  yond which, humanly speaking- recovery is impossible. A time conies  when the jaws of the trap snap together, and the victim is caught. In  intemperance this point is reached imperceptibly, and the victim ia ignorant long after others see his danger.  His captivity ls made known to all,  and to himself; when he needs to rise  up early to follow strong drink." ���������  Expository Times.  The. instruments which had been  dedicated to the worship of Jehovah  ���������the harp and the lute, the tabret  and the pipe���������as well aa wine were in  their feasts. "The harp consisted of  a sound-box at the hase, with wooden  side-arms, and a crossbar connected  by the strings with the box below.  The lute was a guitar. The tabret was  a small hand-drum; unlike the modern drum, the parchment was probably rigidly fixed, and thus incapable  of being tightened or loosened so as  to regulate the pitch. The pipe seems  to have been the" wind Instrument ts  most common use. It may have been  a simple flute, a mere tube with holes,  played by blowing either into one end  or into a hole in the side. It is possible that it was a reed instrument  with a double and vibrating tongue,  or with a single tongue."���������Hastings  Dictionary.  'Pleasure-loving people forget  God, His counsels, His work. Their  love of drink and dissipation blinds  their eyes, dulls their ears, so that  they have no quiet moment to recollect their Maker. These verses are exactly true nowadays of many. They  never have time to reflect, they enslave themselves to drink and a passion for amusement, till duty, charity,  compassion, divine truth, have all  faded out of their minds."���������Edwar������3  King.  Demand For Flaxseed  The Canadian Department of Agriculture reports a good demand in Ireland for Canadian pedigreed flaxseed  for sowing purposes. The demand of  the Irish linen industry for Canadian  fibre flaxseed is attributed to the  quality, germination and purity of the  seed assured by the system "of government inspection which is in effect.

The great majority of us have survived hundreds  of thunderstorms just by taking car������  that lightning did not fall on us from  above. It -wouldn't have saved many  persons had the newly discovered  facts been household lore a century  ago. In the same breath the scientists  announce that negative lightning is  the deadly variety; positive lightning  won't do any worse than melt the filling in one's teeth..How to tell whether an approaching bolt is negajtive or  positive is not included in the information.���������Newark Evening N ews.  - Egg Powder Plant  An egg powder plant which will  consume 180,000 eggs a day h.as been  opened at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Facing her, as she reached the top-  moat step was a. glass door, giving entrance to Claire's own particular  sanctum, which usually, in summer,  stood wide open to admit,, the soft,  warm '���������_-.__*--and the fragrant���������. scents  breathed out from a border of old-  fashioned flowers, sweet and prim  and quaint, which encircled the base  of the house.  "But today the door-was shut and  forbidding-looking, and Jean experienced a sudden sense of misgiving.  Supposing Claire chanced to be out  just when she had arrived brimming  over with the hundred little feminine  confidences that Were to have formed  part of the "heart-to-heart" talk. It  would be too aggravating!  ��������� Her- eager glance flew " ahead,  searching the room's interior, clearly  vusiDie inroug-i tne wioe gtass pauci  of the door. Then, with a startled  cry, she halted, her hand clapped  against her lips to stifle the Involuntary exclamation of dismay and terror that had leapt to them.  The afternoon ~sunsh".ne slanted, in  upon a picture of grotesque horror���������  a nightmare   conception ��������� that   could  only have sprung from the macabre  . Imagination of a madman.  Iu. the miudie of the room Claire  sat bound to a.high-backed chair, sp-  cured by cords which cut cruelly  across her slender body.-Her face had  assumed > a curious ashen shade, and  her eyes were fixed in a numbed look  of fascinated terror. upbn tlie tail!,  angular ; figure of her husnahd, which  pranced in front of her jerkily, like a"  marionette, while he threatened' ber  with a revolver, his thin lips, smiling  cruelly, drawn back from his' teeth  like those of a snarling animal.  He was addressing her in queer  high-pitched tones that had something inhuman about them���������the echoing, empty sound of a voice no longer  controlled by a reasoning brain. ;  "And you heedju't worry that Mir.  Brennan will be overwhelmed with  grief at your early demise. He won't  ���������te-he-he-"���������he gave a foolish, cackling laugh���������"he won't have time to  miss yoti much! I'll attend to that-^-r  I'll attend to that! There'll be a second bullet for your dear friend, Mr.  Brennan."  ... ���������. Crack! The sharp report of  a. revolver shattered tho summer silence as Jean* sprang forward and  wrenched at the handle of the door.  But it refused to yield. It had -been  locked upon1- tho inside* ���������  Then, as~th& smoke, cleared away,-  she saw that Clairo was unhurt. Sir  Adrian had deliberately fired above  her head and was now rocking his  long, lean body to and fro In a paroxysm df horrible, noiseless mirth. Evidently he purposed to amuse himself  by Inflicting the torture of suspense  upon his victim before ho actually  murdered her, for Latimer had beon  at one time an oxpert, rovolvpr shof,  and, oven drug-rlddcn as he. had since  become, he could not well liave missed  tho helpless target by accident.  Claire's head had fallen bo������k, but  no merciful oblivion of .unconsciousness had come io her relief. Her  mouth was a little open and the  breath came in short, quick gasps between her lips. Her face looked like a  mask, set sn a blank stupor of hor-  ror.  ,.  T5ie sound, of, the ,shot - brought  Blaise" aixd Niclc racing to Jean's side.  One '"glance ' through" the glass' door  sufficed them'.  "God in"heaven! He's gone mad!"  Nick's voice was quick with fear for  the woman he loved.  "Get Tucker here at once!"  Blaise's' swift command, flung at  ber as he and Nick leapt forward,  sent Jean flying along the terrace as  fast as feet winged with unutterable  terror could carry her. As she ran,  she heard the crash of splintering  glass as the' two men she had left behind smashed in the panel of the locked door, and, almost simultaneously.  Sir Adrian's pistol harked again ���������  another shot, and then a third in  quick succession.  The sound seemed bo wring every  nerve in her body. Blaise . . . had  that madman shot him?  With sobbing breath she rushed  blindly on into the house and met the  butler, running too,. white -faced and  horror-stricken.  "My God, miss!���������Sir Adrian's murdering her ladyship���������and the room  door's locked."  The man almost babbled out the  words in his extremity of fear.  "The terrace door . . .

For the moment she was  physically unable to run another yard.  But  her  mma   was  working   with  abnormal clarity and swiftness. This  was her doing���������hers. If she had not  dissuaded Nick that day when he had  proposed taking    Claire    away   with  him, all this would never have happened .   i   .   - Claire would have been.  saf e���������saf e!   But  she   had   interfered,  clinging to her  belief  that   no   real  good ever came by doing wrrong* yjad  now her creed had failed her utterly:  Nick's resistance of temptation was  culminating in a ghastly tragedy that  might have been avoided. To Jean it  seemed in that   moment   as   if-   her  world were falling in ruins about her.  Sick with apprehension she almost  reeled   out  again   into   the   mocking  summer sunlight, and, running as fast  as  the   convulsive   throbbing  of  her  heart would let her, regained the far  end of the terrace and peered through  the door that led into Claire's room.  1 Its great   panes    were    shattered.  Jagged teeth'   and   spikes   of:   glass  stuck ' out: from  the wooden  framework, while here and there, dependent from them, were hits of cloth torn  from  the  men's  coats  as  they  had  scrambled through.    ������������������' *  Within the room Jean could discerns, confused hurly-burly of swaying, writhing figures���������Blaise - and  Nick and the ��������� butler struggling to  overpower Sir Adrian, who was-flght-  ing them with all the cunning and the  amazing strength tof madness- From  beyond came the clamour of * people  batterlngi,_uselesaly , t_fc*1&e;rdoo._tf;/ the  shrill, excited voices' of the frightened servants who had collected In the  hall outside  the  room.  For a few breathless seconds Jean  was     In     doubt���������wondered    wildly  Whether Sir Adrian would succeed In  breaking: away    from    his    captors.  'Then, she saw Niels's foot ahoot'^ut  suddenly  like   the  piston-rod  of  an  engine, and Sir Adrian staggered and  cdmo erashihg down oh to his knees.  The  other ' two" closed - In upon him'  swiftly, and a minute later he was lying: prone on Ida back With the. three  mou folding him down by -^naln: force.  With difficulty avoiding   the   protruding pieces of glass, Jean stopped  into the room. Her first thought waa  for  Claire,  who   now hung  helplcsa  and unconscious   against  the  bonds  that held.hor, But   Blaise    very  speedily directed her attention to  something of more urgent importance for tho moment.  "Unlock that door," ho called to  her. "Quick!" Ho was still partting  from the exertion oC tho rocent struggle, "Get a rope of oomo Bort!"

"Get some cord, one of you," commanded Jean authoritatively^ "Anything will do if it's strong."  Two or three of the servants broke  away from the main body and ran  frantically in search of the required  cord, glad to be of use, and very  soon Sir Adrian, bound a3 humanely  as his struggles rendered possible,  was borne to his room and laid upon  his bed.  -'Ring   up    the;  doctor,"    ordered  Blaise,  as he assisted in the rather  difficult process    of    conveying    Sir  Adrian upstairs.    "Tell him to come  to Chamwood as quickly as he can  get here."  And  another eager _ little:  detachment of domestics flew off to  carry   out   his   bidding.   The   under-  foot'-oss's "*oi_  the race for the  telephone, by a good half -yard, and, in a  voices which fairly twittered with the  agitating and amazing news he had to  impart,   transmitted  the  message to  the doctor's parlour-maid at the other  end of the wire,   adding a few picturesque and stimulating details concerning the struggle which had just  taken place���������and-which,  apparently,  he   had. perceived   with   the   eye   of  f ������__-_.      4."1_.������-".-i������n.  _"V_ ���������._-."������ ������n.������.       4*Vi_  rr_r.ri__-_  r>*_.\>.������_.w*  no v. o.1 a  Of  the locked door, as^ .  Meanwhile Niclfe'tod Jean had turn-,  ed, their attentions towards releasing,  Claire;who, as the last of her bonds  was cut, topjpled "forward in a dead  faint into the former's arms.  A second procession wended its  way upstairs, Nick bearing the slight,  unconscious figure in. his arms while  Jean and a 'kindly-faced housemaid  followed.  ''Her ladyship's maid is out, miss,"  volunteered the girl. "But perhaps I  can help?"  Jean smiled at her, the frank,  friendly smile that always won for  her the eager, willing service of man  and maid alike.  "I'm sure you can," she said gently.  "As soon as we can bring her ladyship round, you shall help me undress  her and put her to bed."  In a few minutes Claire recovered  consciousness, but she was horribly  shaken and distraught, crying iand  clinging to Jean or to the housemaid  ���������who was almost crying, too, out of  sympathy���������like a., child frightened by  'the dark.

It was an intense relief to Jean  when Lady Anne arrived and quietly  and efficiently took command of affairs. And there was sore need for  her unruffled poise and capability  throughout the night that followed.  Claire, nervous and utterly unstrung, slept but little, waking constantly with a cry of terror as in  imagination she relived the ordeal of  the afternoon, while in the big bedroom across the landing, where her  husband lay, the grim shadow of  death, itself was drawing momentarily  closer.  By the time the doctor had arrived  in answer to the summons sent, there  seemed small need for the strong  cords with which Sir Adrian's limbs  were bound. The wild fury of the  afternoon's struggle had thoroughly  exhausted him, and he lay, propped  up with pillows, apparently in a state  of stupor, breathing very feebly.  "Heart," the doctor told Tormarin  after he had made a swift examination. "I've known for months that Sir  Adrian might go but at any moment.  His heart was already impaired, and,  of course, he's drugged for years. He  may recover a little, but if, as I think  is highly probable, there's any recurrence of the brain disturbance���������why,  he'll not live -put a second paraoxysm.  The heart won't stand it."  Tormarin endeavoured to look appropriately shppked. But the doctor  was a man and an honest one, and not  even nro^essiQisa'' eH������u<������M'e nrAvfhtArl  his adding, with a jerk of his head in  the direction of Claire's bedroom:  "It would be a merciful deliverance l  for that poor woman. There's a strain  of madness in the Latimers, you  know. And"���������with a shrug���������"naturally Sir Adrian's habits have accentuated it in his own case."  But the doctor was mistaken in  calculations. Sir Adrian's constitution  was stronger than he estimated. As  Nick had once bitterly commented to  Jean, the man was like a piece of  steel wire, and two dreadful outbreaks of maniacal fury had to be  endured before the wire began " to  weaken. !  During the course of the flrst paroxysm it was all the four men could  do to restrain him from leaping from  the bed and rushing out of the room,  since, during the period of quiescence  which had preceded the doctor's arrival, a mistaken feeling of humanity  had dictated the loosening of the  cords: which bound him..  He fought and screamed, uttering  the most horrible Imprecations, and  his evil intent towards the woman  who was his wife was unmistakable.  With hor husband free to work his  wlll, Claire's life would not have  been worth a moment's purchase.  In the period of coma that succeeded this outbreak Sir Adrian was again  secured, as mercifully as possible,  from any possibility of doing his wife  a mischief, and the second paroxysm  which convulsed the. bound and shackled madman was Very terrible to wit-"  neffls.  Like Its predecessor, this attack was  fallowed t>y it stupor, during which  Sir Adrian appeared more dead than  allvo.

A fortnight had come and gone.

Fortified by Imperial  preference,   the  plan is to produce in Canada British Empire pictures for Empire distribution.  Let us beware!  The scheme smells suspiciously like an  effort, o* some Manhattan Sig Noses to  make a piece of change for themselves.  We can look for formation of corporations, a big press ballyhoo, then offering  of stocks, bonds or other securities to the  Canadian investing public.  All the prestige of big names in the  movie world will be used; Canadians  will be urged to participate financially  in these enterprises as a patriotic duty������  to assist in preservation of British ideals  and to keep Canadian theatregoers' money home instead of contributing it to the  maintenance of the gay night life c f  naughty Hollywood. Much ado will be  made aboot the financial advantages  derivable by reason of Empire preference  and quotas.  Then a swarm of high pressure stock  salesmen will cross the line and reap a  harvest.  ������_.  m  _U_SK^___k__M_______M0kawBBM  t_^^-_j^_fc_|lh_������^*k-(___l__________--������_____k_____sV  *  >  MAIflMO  lfgf%l\li^l__  YUUK U������������N PiUftLtS   f  EVERY HOUSEWIFE prides herself on  '*-* the quality and variety of pickles she  makes each season.

Greston Valley Co-Operative Assn.  About the time the dust settles it will  be discovered that most of the money  raised emigrated to N'Yawk, .where it  was gathered into the bank accounts of  the Big Noses; the effort to produce  motion pictures in the Dominion for  Empire consumption will ignominously  fizzle out; while the Canadian investing  public will be left holding the Back and  reflecting on "the transitory nature of all  earthly hopes.  000  During the past few years ye guest  editor has heard reports at various times  of a certain persistent prize winning  station garden located at some point to  him unknown, along the far flung tracks  of the Canadian Pacific. It was a  pleasant surprise to find out a few days  ago that our immediate neighbor, Erickson, is distinguished by reason of this  particular display of flori cultural  beauty. The person responsible for this,  and by reason therefore entitled to have  his name registered as one of the leading  citizens of this fair valley, is Tom  Bundy, who mans the Union Depot at  Erickson, with credit to himself and  great satisfaction to the big .railway.  His success with the station garden  proves him an adept in wielding shears,  lawn mower or sUch other paraphernalia  as may be required in work of that kind  It is said that a thing of beauty is a joy  forever, but from the effort apparent to  its proper maintenance, one is justified in  presuming the Erickson garden to be the  creator of no end of work. As an  example of landscaping art, it has to be  seen to be appreciated. It is not merely  a lot of "different flowers growing in great  profusion hither and yon, Mr. Bundy  has succeeded in arranging the various  beds with an eye to harmony so that the  glaring inconsistencies of color sometimes  noted in the work of well meaning but  less successful flower gardeners is lacking. Framed amid a naturally pictur-  sque setting, the Erickson garden places  that community on the map. Ye  guest editor rises to nominate Mr Bundy  recently at the home of Mr. and. Mrs.  P. W. Molander here.  Mrs. N. P. Molander, Beatrice  Molander, ' Mrs. 33. Driffil, Dick  Molander and Ole Bjdrkes were Bonners  Ferry visitors Wednesday of last week.

Mrs. Nellie Langlois and family were  Cranbrook visitors Friday.  The C.P.R. extra gang arrived Friday  and are repairing the section house and  water tank.  A crew of men arrived frcm Creston,  Lister and Canyon a few days ago and  are constructing a new bridge over  Russell creek in town.

Not the least interesting  is Rykerts,  at  the boundary line, and  whose  history   antedates   that   of   the  Kootenays.   Then there is also the old  log   hospital   near  Kitchener,   credited  with being the locale of Ralph Connor's.  novel   "The     Doctor,"   The  historical  assoiations   in connection with these and  others will grow increasingly valuable as  time goes on, because there is a glamor  added by passage o! time to the events  of    pioneer      days    which     they    do  not possess under close'perspective.  6 o o  The passage of time brings all things  to an end; and so inevitably, the end of  the deserved vacation of the beloved  regular incumbent of this editorial  pastorate is at hand. The stay here of  the pinch hitting incumbent comes tb a  conclusion and he must perforce move  on to other vinyards.  This two months" visit to Creston has  been very greatly enjoyed. Thanks is  expressed fcr the kindly forbearance  shown with occasional obvious but inadvertent editorial sins of omission and  commission; these are almost unavoidable where strange names and initials,  and unfamiliar conditions peculiar to  any particular locality of necessity have  to be dealt with.  Almost without exception everyone  contacted in and around Creston has  proved uniformly kind, courteous, considerate and hospitable. Words are in  adequate to express the appreciation  felt.  This kindly community will not be  forgotten; its adyantages far outweigh a  few minor disadvantages. Provided  certain things come to pass, and of  which thero is now reasonable assurance,  Creston may well in due time cut a  j much more important figure than at  present. Its location, and resources entitle it to eventual attainment of  possibly second or third place among the  cities of Kootenay, East and West.  In conclusion, the shades of the poot  Goldsmith will doubtless forgive a littlo  parody an a fow lines from "The  Traveller": '  " Where'er I go, whatever realms I see,  My heart untraveiled fondly turns to  thee, ;  To Creaton turns with ceaseless pain,  And     drags    nt    each ,, remove     a  lengtH'ning chain."
