 ���������.'pf*-"  Provincial "Library a|������w*  Vol.   XXIV.  CRESTON. B.C., FRlpAY,  NOVEMBER 18, 1932  Al  No. 35  Creston Honors  Armistice Bay  Remembrance Exercises Have  Pleasing International Aspect  ���������Splendid Address by (Rev.)  N. G. Smith���������Reunion Dinner  The international spirit waa very  bappily present in Creston's observance  of Armistice Day on Friday, the  exercises following along .traditional lines  of exercises at the monument, decoration of fallen comrades graves, reunion  dinner '; and dance. The day, while  chilly, was not otherwise disagreeable,  and the turnout of returned men as well  as citizens .was father larger than in past  years.  To a lively march by Creston brass  band, the veterans moved off from the  Shell Oil Company premises shortly before 11, in charge of Sergt. J.B.Holder  reaching the cenotaph in time for the  Cease Fire at 10.58, which was followed  by the two minutes silence, Bugler G.  H. Kelly then sounded Last Post, and  this was followed by the Reveille by  Bugler Millen. All the local organizations as well as a number of individual  citizens presented wreaths, the display  of flowers also being better than last  year.  Rev. Andrew Walker's invocation was.  impressive and the address by (Rev.) N.  G. Smith stressed the idea that the  services and silences of Armistice will be  in vain if the purpose of the great  struggle, which he designated as a war to  end all wars, is not enforced by nations  and individuals.  Following Mr. Smith's practical talk  came the presentation of the plaque  from Boundary Post American Legion,  Bonners Ferry_-IcLa|_o, and dpcicated to.  the* ._ttei__ory~ . 6F"~tbe"*-Cresfeon^ Valley'  mothers who lost sons in the great war.  This presentation was to have been a  feature of the international Legion reunion last June, but due the plaque not  being completed in"time formal presentation had to be deferred till^Airraistiee  Day. The presentation address was by  W. B. Scott of Bonners Ferry, who spoke  briefly but most appropriately, and the  was received on behall: of Creston Legion  by Mrs. Robert Saewart.  During the exercises "O Canada" and  one verse of "O God Our Help in Ages  Past"-were sung, the ceremony dosing  with God Save the King, after which the  veteraus paraded to Creston cemetery  where they decorated the graves of a  number of fallen comrades.  At 12.30 the reuniorwdinnerwas served  at the King George Hotel where about  50 returned' men sat down to an excellent banquet spread at which all the  good things of the season were served in  capital style under the direction of the  proprietor, Comrade B, Morabito, who  saw overseas .Service with the 49th  Battalion.  After ample justice had been done the  dinner, W. V. Jackson, president of the  local Legion post, cordially, welcomed all  the veterans, expressing special pleasure  at* having the company of quite a  number of the men wbo s rved overseas with Uncle Sam, a number of whom  were heard in short talks. The toast to  the King was heartily received.. "The  Army," was introduced by Hilton  Young and the response was by Col..  Mallandaine. "Our Guests/' was  proposed by R. J, Forbes, and rounds of  applause greeted the replies by Judge  Hunt of Stmdpoint, and Messrs. Arthur  Zimmerman, W. B. Scott and -E. B.  Campbell, all of Bonners Ferry,  Vocal solos by a number of local votf..  aa well as ������. great variety of army aongp  were much In evidence throughout tho  afternoon. In the ovoning the Armistice  dance ot Parle pavilion was well attended and was vory popular with all  present, Crestonian orchestra supplying  very fine music throughout the affair.  a.  1       Cmmy&a.

Rev. ,R.

On his trip here he was  accompanied by G. Sinclair of Creston.  Canyon Water Users had their annual  meeting at the hall on Saturday evening,  but due the very disagreeable weather  the turnout was smaller than usual. Jas.

CANADA  STARCH  CO..  Lln-I.ed,  STAIRS MADE  HER  GASP FOR BREATH  Can we do better this week, followng so  soon after the observance of  Remembrance Day,   than reproduce in  this  column  an  editorial  from  the  National Home Weekly, published, in Winnipeg? We think not. So here it is:  Gradually it is becoming clsar to the minds of most people that conditions  today are far more serious than they were during the years .of the War. For  then, men were buoyed up by hope.    They knew that in time their troubles . ..,.   ,,  would be over. But no one can tell when this present misfortune will end.! Q ^ ���������������-___  The mist of yesterday has  become  the  dense  black cloud  of  today.  With \ rClially    Kmt    EXCfiSS    rat  many, despair has sapped tho strength from courage. .   f      Although she has lost but 7 lbs. of  It will not be out of place, then, to recall the words and deeds that 5 hf-r ov^r-woie-hf. this woman finds that  during the War inspired hop*, and urged steadfastness. Of all the written! jibs, has made a remarkable differ-  messages there was perhaps nothing finer than the address of General Currie  to the Canadian army on th_ eve of the great advance in March, 1918. In it  he makes clear the seriousness of the struggle and the danger of defeat; he  indicates the successes already won, and states tho need of the moment.  Finally he speaks of the reward of victory. The message will be read again  with vivid recollections by those who were in the ranks in 1918. May all  who read it now for the first time feel that it is equally "appropriate today.  The problems to be solved, the forces to be overcome, are just as real andas  great, and the virtues of constancy, courage and self-sacrifice are just as  necessary.  SPECIAL ORDER. March 27th, 191S:���������"In an endeavour to reach an  immediate decision the enemy has gathered all his forces and struck a  mighty blow at the British Army. Overwhelmed by sheer weight of numbers  the British Divisions ia the line" between Scarpe and Oise have fallen back  fighting hard,   steady and undismayed.  "Measures have been taken successfully to meet this German onslaught.  The French have gathered a powerful army, commanded by a most able and  trusted leader, and this army is now moving to our help. Fresh British  Divisions are now being thrown in. The Canadians are soon to be engaged.  Our Motor Machine-Gun Brigade has already played a most gallant part and  once again covered itself with glory.  "Looking back with pride on the unbroken record of your glorious  achievements, asking- you to realize that today the fate of the British  Empire hangs in the balance. I place my trust in the Canadian Corps,  knowing that where Canadians are engaged there can be no giving way.  "Under the orders of yoxir devoted officers in the coming battle you will  advance or fall where you stand facing the enemy.  "To those who will fall I say. 'You will not die but step into  immortality. Your mothers will not lament your fate but will be proud to  have borne such sons. Your names will be revered forever and ever by your  grateful country, and God will take you unto Himself.'  "Canadians, in this fateful hour, I command you and I trust you to fight  as you have ever fought with all your strength, with all your determination,  with all your tranquil courage. On many a hard-fought field of battle you  have overcome this enemy. With God's help you shall achieve victory once  more."  The seriousness of conditions today may be observed in both national  and international affairs. At home trade is languishing, the army of the  unemployed is increasing, and "worst of all young people just entering manhood and womanhood are being deprived of the opportunity to earn a living  or to form life associations or to contribute to good citizenship. The result  is a growing feeling of discontent. Each individual is inclined to blame all  others for prevailing misfortunes.  Internationally the problem is even more acute. Debtor countries are  refusing to pay. because they feel that they have been unjustly treated, or  because they no longer have world-coin to meet the demand. Nor will tariff  barriers permit payment in the form of goods. To accentuate the mischief  nation is vying with nation in the production of armaments. As for overcrowed states there is no territory available for the surplus population. All  of these things make for the spread of those national hatreds which are one  of the causes of war. If quarreling is easily possible when people are  prosperous and inclined to be neighborly, it is almost certain to occur in  violent form when they lose confidence in each other, and when extreme  distress prevails.  The only way to avert disaster is the way of unselfishness and self-  sacrifice. It is true today as of old that regardless of race, color or creed  man is his brother's keeper. It is true now as two thousands years ago that  men shall find their lives in losing them. The victories of peace are as  glorious and as costly as the victories of war,  Driven by the higher motive it is easy for men to transform a world.  The channels of trade will be thrown open, waste areas will be populated,  armaments will be cast away, production and consumption will find a  balance. Within the state, opportunities for culture and comfort will be  measurably equal for all. The man at the machine will be of more value  than the machine's production, thc needs of the many shall be of more  account than the desires of the few, the rich shall not batten on the poor,  the laws of the land shall not favor the designs of the privileged class. But  each man, recognizing that his neighbor has rights equal to his own, shall  honor justice and practise righteousness. Thus in peace may they catch the  spirit of General Currte's message. In 1932 men may be as brave, as loyal  and as nobly self-sacrificing as they were In 1918. May they hear again the  words "Canadians, in this fateful hour, I command you, I trust you to fight  as vou havp ever fought with all your strength, with all your determination,  with all your tranquil courage. . . . w,<* rs~1- u",~ *��������� Dl"-11 -���������������������������-���������  victory once more."

Motherwell Says Agreement Injures Trade  Ottawa, Ont.^���������"If the 1930 Imperial  Conference was humbug, the last Imperial ,"Con_fereac������ was a double-eyed,  twice*2dfsline<l*Jq������intessence of humbug,*' declared Hon. W. R. Motherwell (Lib., Melville), in the House of  Commons. He continued debate on  second reading of the bill to ratify  the Canada-United Kingdom trade  agreement.  He was opposed to the agreement,  said the former minister of agriculture, for several reasons. He objected to the government's methods of  giving preferences by raising tariffs  against the rest of the world. Its effect would be fco injure Canada's  trade.  The agreement had been arrived at  under tlie "threat" of an Imposition  of tariffs by the United Kingdom on  November 15, said Mr. Motherwell.  ' Rt. Hon. Stanley Baldwin had given  Canadian wheat a preference with one  hand and taken it away with tho  other, when he Insisted that tlio  wheat be sold at world prices, Mr.  Motherwell said. The only way to  secure a preference was by way of a  quota.  He had looked for some remedial  action on the part of the British government in connection with the necessity of routing Canadian grain by  Canadian ports In order to obtain tlio  preference. He could not believe that  the government would knowingly interfere with ts, long-established trade  route, via Buffalo and New York.  It would cost twice as much to convey the wheat by way of Halifax and  Saint John, in the increased cost3 of  freight and storage. While he was  prepared to patronize Canadian ports,  he did not wish to do so at a price of  four ������or Ave cents extra In tlie way of  expenses.  Mr. Motherwell felt thai the government's first act at the conference  should liave been to Adjust the exchange situation.

"Since we've been without one I've felt like a heamit.  With John away and the children at school all day, I miss  those cherry telephone chats  more than ever. I'm so lonely.  It's hard to be otherwise if you  can't call up your friends or  relatives once in a while, or if  they can't call up you."  Mrs.   Grey    got rid of that  lonely feeling by having a telephone installed.  tomed to the sight, other fruit  was also noticed, but I want to  dwell chiefly on the Canadian  apples.  The Dominian Government  had one of the most imposing  stands for their display. It was  divided into four sections, representing Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and British  Columbia, and the apples were  splendid. Without prejudice,  one can say that the British  Golumbia apples were the most  attractive in appearance. For  example, the Delicious and Mcintosh of the east were equal in  size to those of British Golumbia,  but were a dull red in color, while  tbe B.C. ones were a bright color.  One lady asked me if we really  picked apples as large as those  shown���������she pointed especially to  Delicious���������and I could truthfully  say I had picked and eaten  similar ones in Canyon. This  satisfied her. She probably had  the idea .that many have, that  exhibition apples are grown at  experimental stations.

Murrell, jthe board's representative on the power committee that  visited Victoria the latter part of October in an effort to help Creston Power &  Light Company get speedy actiOB on  their application to develop Summit  Creek, reported in detail, and his report  was concurred,in by P. H. Jackson, who  represented the. village council. Tbe  report was accepted and Mr. Mmrrell  thanked for the very satisfactory results  abtained by the delegation.  A letter from a member unable to  attend called attention to the withdrawal of C.P.R. station service at Creston  depot on Sundays. The station is now  locked up from Saturday night until  Monday morning; not even comfortable  waiting room accommodation given, and  the report persists that the services of  the assistant is to be withdrawn. The  secretary will write the divisional  superintend,ent, Mr. Manson, at Nelson,  and Mr. dotterel-,, who is opesating  superintendent for all British Columbia,  asking'"'that the old order of Sunday  service be re-established and that the  assistant be not withdrawn.  While at Victoria Messrs. Jackso . and  Murrell followed up a board letter of  tbe liquor control board as to taking a  beer parlor plebiscite at Creston, on. the  very ^defiqite. , jjiaderstanding - that no  license would be issued except to a new  and fully modern hotel, of which Creston has some prospect. Mr. Jackson fe^  ported that the chairman had advised  them that aplebiscite on such terms  would be provided at Creston as soon as.  the petition carrying the signatures of  35 per cent, of the bona fide- voters at  Creston was received at Victoria. Mr.  Jackson was named chairman of the  plebiscite committee with full power to  select the other members oi the  committee.  With the prospect" of another re  distributation of the seats in the B.C.  legislature, the redistribution committee  of the board was asked to make another  effirt to have the-territory from Boswell  east included in the Cranbrook riding*  In the 1982 redistribution the whole  Creston riding was merged with Nelson.  In connection wi th Education Week,  Jas. Cherrington w������b named to act as  the board representative handling the  matter.

James F. Bryant,  who is in charge of the Saskatchewan Fruit Growing Campaign on the  Institutional Farms of the Province,  an excellent start has been made this  fall.  The plans which have been carefully thought out and considered in detail for the establishment of fruit orchards on the Saskatchewan Government Institutional Farms, and for the  promoting of fruit growing in Saskatchewan are now definitely being  undertaken and work has commenced  in connection with the trial nursery  and fruit breeding grounds at Regina.  and the orchards on the Institutional  Farms have been laid out and will be  surrounded with windbreaks either  ; this fall or early next spring.  Over eleven hundred grafted crab-  | apple trees, one, two, and three years  j old, of sixty named varieties, all on  Siberian Crab roots and northern  i grown, have been obtained and will be  ��������� either planted in the Government  ' Nurseries or distributed tothe Instl-  I tutional farms. Already at rsaUIe-Nsrci,  - an orchard plot 1,370 feet long and  376 feet wide has been laid out and  '������������������ planted with    caragana   windbreaks.  atr to  Y;i y-tG ly e;jhimTt^  yyr^yjfyo\r b <_��������� d y^'uiWcTr~^;Tjr  ir;xTy.;Y:_j_y-.:he r.equires-Ty..;'i",;;'-y  IMtiiiffiSi  :<:'yo������I"Ho fwegiani  ��������� '.:���������   ��������� /">.;_  tM1>;  Wa/:'  ���������xmi  '^..:i:.R;ic}r''in;Aw..,.

Some twenty-four hundred seedling  Siberian crabs have been obtained and  on these will be grafted wood of  named crabapples and standard apple  stock.  Some seventy-five standard apple  trees in six varieties have been obtained. These are .all varieties that  have proven satisfactory in Manitoba  and in parts of Saskatchewan where  they have been tried out by private  owners. All these trees are either budded or crown grafted on Siberian  crabapple roots and are perfectly  hardy. The majority of these apple  1 trees" will be planted in the Regina  i Nursery in order to get seeds for future planting and distribution.  About one hundred and eighty  j northern grown, one two, and three  j year old plum trees, of the best var-  | ieties produced to date in Western  | Canada, have been obtained and were  S planted this fall in the Government  I Nurseries at Regina, to supply bud'  taken, up with the Hon. Robert Weir,  Minister of Agriculture at Ottawa,  and Dr. E. S. Archibald, Director of  Dominion Experimental Farms,, and  both expressed their appreciation of  the importance of the work, and  promised their assistance and co-operation, which has been since given in  a wholehearted way by them and the  officials of their departments engaged  in fruit experimental work in Western Canada.  Mr. W. R. Leslie, Superintendent of  the Dominion Experimental work at  Morden, has been especially enthusiastic and helpful. Mr. Leslie has done  some of the finest work in Western  Canada in the matter of fruit growing. On my visit to the Morden farm  this summer to inspect the work, and  ascertain the best varieties suited to  the different localities in Saskatchewan in which our Institutional  Farms are located, Mr. Leslie spent a  full half day showing me over the  orchards. He is freely giving his advice as to the best varieties and is not  Morden in the spring, a goodly supply of grapfe cuttings which will include the following varieties:  Alpha, Beta, - Suelter, Hungarian,  Selected native grapes from Riding  Mountains, and Campbells Early.  Tne seeds from, eleven quarts of  sweet blue grapes grown this year  and ripened in George Watt's old garden in Regina, have been saved and  are being planted. These varieties  trained to the fan system which eliminates the trunk, have wintered well  in Manitoba and have produced abundant crops of large fleshy, early maturing: grapes. They will be grown on  all the Institutional farms, and pergolas will be erected where they can  be used for ornamental work instead  "of Virginia Creeper, and at the same  time when established will produce  excellent fruit - for jam, jelly and  grape juice.  We therefore feel that the Saskatchewan Government fruit growing  campaign is in full swing, and the  plum trees which will result from  nine bushels of plum pits and the  other fruit trees will keep grow.'ng  and supply fruit to the patients and  others after many of us are dead  and gone. Similar work will be done  each year as it is only by growing  and testing out thousands of seed-  lngs annually that new and important  varieties will be developed.  BVnit growing Is the largest field  for scientific and experimental horticulture that exists on the prairies.  This field has not been developed in  Saskatchewan up to date although  here and there private individuals  have done excellent work. In co-operation with the Experimental farms  and University, the Department of  Public Works, through the Institutional Farms, is going to use its best  endeavor to encourage the growth of  fruit on as many farm and home gardens as is possible in the province, in  order to make the homes more attractive and to assist in diversified  farming by making each home uniit  as self-supporting as possible. Saskatchewan-fruit, as a result of our  ^climate, sunshine and soil, is surpassed in flavor by no other fruit in  Canada.  With the introduction of tlie fruit  trees, there will be established a hive  or two of bees on each farm to pollinate the fruit.

The pits  are planted three inches deep about  one to two inches apart in rows three  feet apart so that they can cultivate  between the rows, and a mulch is being put over the rows in order to retain moisture and assist in germination. Of the plum pits retained for  the Regina Nursery, one.half has already been planted and the .other half  will bo stratified in wet soil ancl  planted in the spring. A record will be  kept of the best germination under  each method for future work.  The apple seeds and crabapple seed  will be kept in the Regina Nursery.

We have also received very valuable assistance from Mr. F. V. Hut-  ton of the Rosthern Experimental  Farm, from which our young fruit  trees have mostly come. Mr. William  Gibson, Superintendent of the Indian  Head Experimental Farm and R. Wilson, formerly of .Morden Station, but  now in charge of Horticulture at Indian Head, are also giving us strong  encouragement in our work and are  co-operating in supplying material  which will be sent in and distributed  to our orchards and planted in the  spring. They have sent in plum, apple  and crabapple seed this fall, and similar assistance in the matter of northern grown stock is being given by  Superintendent Mathews of Scott Experimental* station.  Professor Patterson who is Jn  charge of horticulture at the University of Saskatchewan, is a strong exponent of the Government fruit growing campaign. He has welcomed the  opportunity of having Ms selections  from controlled crosses, originated by  him at the University, tested out on  the Institutional farms in the different parts of the province. Professor  Patterson has given us plum seeds in  addition to those already mentioned  and Is supplying us with raspberry  plants.  About eighteen hundred raspberry  shrubs of thirty different varieties  and fifty-seven hundred cuttings of  black, red, and white currants of  twenty-four different varieties have  been obtained and are being heeled In  and will bo planted In the orchards In  the spring between the rows of fruit  trees. Gooseberry plants will be received from Morden farm and planted in thc spring in each orchard. We  have received up to date 1,320 sand  cherries for fruiting and experimental  work.

The remainder  of the party were grouped around her,  reclining in various attitudes of a  "dolce far niente" nature, while from  a little distance away, where the  horses were picketed in charge of a  groom, came the drowsy, rhythmic  .sound of the munching of corn, punctuated by an occasional stamp of an  impatient hoof.  "Yes, it's been good/' agreed Lady  Anne. "I shall never settle down  again properly as a dowager at the  Dower House!" And she laughed gleefully..  To her, it had been almost like a  return to the days of her youth, for  "her four children"���������as she called  them���������had insisted on her sharing in  all their active pursuits, and Lady  Anne, who in her girlhood and early  married life had been a first-class  horsewoman and a magnificent swim-  tner, had consented'"con amore."  Blaise pulled himself lazily up into  a sitting posture and glanced towards  the crimson glow of westering sun  Where it struck athwart the tall  trunks of the trees.  41 You'll none of you live to go badk  to England.

"'It's almost sun-  " pet, and after that it grows abominably chilly in this eastern paradise of  Jean's, Besides, I fancy it's going to  blow great guns before long,"  It was true. Already ia little chill  whisper of wind was shaking' the tops  iof tho trees, and before the party was  iCalrly mounted and away, the whisper  had changed to a shrill whistling, heralding the big gale which drove along  behind the innocent seeming breeze  which at flrst had barely rocked the  topmost branches.

U,   1008  fels, and the sun had dipped below  the horizon in a sullen splendour* of  purple and red before the shoulder  of the hill, upon the further side of  which the castle stood, came into  sight. Now and again the moon peered out between the racing, wind-driven clouds, clearly limning the bold  black curve of the hill against a background of lowering sky.  Jean and Blaise were riding  abreast, a little in advance of the rest,  engrossed by the difficulties of carrying on an animated conversation in a  high wind. As they swung round the  bend in the road which brought the  hill's great shoulder into view, Jean  threw "back her head and stared at the  sky above it with a puzzled frown on  her face.  "Why .... how queer!" she exclaimed. "The sun set nearly half an  hour ago and yet there's still quite a  brilliant red glow in the sky. Look,  Blaise���������just above, where Beirnfels  stands."  Blaise glanced up casually in the  direction indicated, then suddenly.  reined in his horse and half-rose in  the stirrups, staring at the red glow  deepening in the sky ahead.  "That's no sunset!" he exclaimed  sharply. "It's���������Great heavens, Jean!  Beirnfels is on fire!"  Even as he spoke a tongue of flame,  mocking the dull glow with its gleaming blaze, shot up like a thin red  knife into the sky and sank again.  A shout came from behind. The  others had seen it, also, and recognized its deadly import. The next moment the clatter of galloping hoofs  echoed along the road as the whole  j>arty urged their horses on towards  home as fast as they could cover the  ground.  Soon they struck off from the road,  taking a bridle path which slanted  through the woods clothing the base  of the hill, and aa they emerged on  to the broad plateau where Beirnfels  had stood sentinel through wind and  weather for so many years, the whole  extent of the catastrophe was revealed.  By this time the angry glow in thc  sky had turned dusk into day, while  from tho doors and windows of the  castle flro vomited forth as from a  furnace���������upward in long, stnous  tongues of flame, licking the blackened walls, downward in spangled  showers df sparks that drifted towards tho earth like flights of golden  butterflies.  Littlo groups of men and womon,  helpless aa ants to atay the fire, rushed futllely hither and thither with  hosepipe and engine, while on tho  smooth sward which fronted the castle lay piled enormous quantities of  housohold stuff, a medley of flno old  furniture, torn tapostry wrenched  from Its place against tho walls, pictures, mii'ifot's���������anything and everything that could be dragged out into  thp open by eager hands and willing  arms.

The household staff, practised to a  limited extent,���������a fire drill had been  held once a month in Peterson's time  ���������had done their best to cope with the  flames, but vainly. The. high wind  which had arisen had thwarted their  utmost efforts, and finally giving up  all hope of saving the; interior from  being gutted, they had confined themselves to rescuing such valuables as  could be easily removed.  There was the usual mystery as to  how the fire had originated, and several circulated amongst the chattering throng which hurried hither and  thither, momentarily augmented by  the peasants who, at sight of the castle in flames, had come trooping up  the hill from the village below.  The most likely story, and the one  to which Blaise inclined to give most  credence, was that the child of a woman who worked daily at the castle,  escaping from its mother's care and  launched on an independent voyage of  discovery through the rooms, had  knocked over a burning lamp. Then,  terrified at the immediate consequences,���������the sudden flaring of some ancient tapestry, dry as tinder with the  summer heat, near which the Lamp  had fallen���������he had bolted away, out  of the castle and so home, too scared  to tell anyone pf the accident.  , But, as Jean commented mournfully, what did it matter how it happened ? Except from the prosaic viewpoint of the fire insurance company,  who would probably desire to know  all kinds of details that it was impossible to supply!  For her, nothing mattered except  that Beirnfels, her home from childhood and the place where she and  Blaise had proposed to spend a great  part of their married life, was a furnace of flames. ���������    <��������� -��������� v .  It was a splendid but very terrible  sight. The great grim walls of the  castle stood four-square against the  sky, charred and blackened but defiantly impervious to the flames that  were licking covetously against the  solid stone which fashioned them.  Sentinel "to the very end, they reared  themselves unvanquished, guardians  still, though all that they had sheltered through their centuries of watch  and ward lay consumed, within their  very heart.  Jean, standing beside Blaise and  watching the upward-tossing flames  and the crimson banner of the lowering heavens, spoke suddenly:  "'And the sky   as   red   as   blood  Quick  RELIEF  from pain  A lot of things can cause a headache  or other pain, but there Is ono thing  that will always give you relief!

Blaise, the last of Keturah.  Stanley's prophecies has come true!"  An hour later help was forthcoming  from the distant town to which a messenger had been, dispatched post-haste  as soon as it was realized that the  household staff, even with the assistance from the village, was hopelessly  inadequate to cope with a fire of such  magnitude. But it was already too  late to accomplish very much in the  way of salvage. All that remained  possible was to quench that inferno of  fire as soon as might be and so, perhaps, save some of the outbuildings.  Hour after hour through the night,  human endeavour fought with the  flames���������subduing them again and  again only to find them kindling into  fresh life at the gusty bidding of the  wind, leaping redly from the lambent  heart of the conflagration, which  glowed and pulsed and heaved like  some living monster intent upon destruction.  it was not until dawn was "breaking, that, with the dying down of the  wind, the flickering crimson light  an hour later, when the- flre had been  faded finally from the sky; and a half  at last extinguished, the village folk,  gathered about the scene of the  catastrophe, had dispersed to their  homes.  Lady Anne, accompanied by Nick  and Claire, started for the inn of tlie  Green Dragon, whither the landlord  had hurried on ahead to prepare tern."  porary quarter., for tho now homeless  littlo company fi. om tlie castle. But  Jean and Blaise still lingered by tlie  deserted ruins loth to say farewell to  tho place that had meant so much to  thorn.  Beneath the misty azure of tlio  summer morning sky, fanned by little  vagrant zephyrs���������rearguard of the  hurricane which had passed���������stood all  that remained of Beirnfels���������blackened, naked walls, stark against that  tender blue, brooding above tho mass  of cooling- wreckage.  Jean's mouth quivered a littlo an  her glance took in tho scene of uttor  desolation,  "My House of Dream/i," who wills-  pcrotl brokenly.  She was flllont a few momonta, her  eyes embracing all that had onco beon  Bolrnfolu lu a gaze which hold both  farewell and retrospect. And something more���������some vision of the future. In^th* dawn-light pearling the  sky above she recognized the eternal  promise of Him Who "commanded the  light to shine out of darkness."  Her House of Dreams! The inner  meaning of the song had grown suddenly clear to her.  When she turned again to Blaise,  her expression was serene and tranquil. Touched with regret perhaps, but  bravely confident.  *T don't think it matters, Blaise,"  she said simply. "Beirnfels was only  a symbol, after all.
