The St. Patrick's night jamboree,  under the auspices of Creston Valley  Post Canadian Legion attracted a crowd  that filled the Parish Hall to overflowing,  and both as to entertainment and  financial return was a great success.  The programme was opened with a  series of six tableaux. Two of these  were patriotic and featured A. W.  Sinclair representing Scotland, and Miss  Ada Lewis, appropriately costumed, as  Briliania. The next two7 were hospital  scenes. One by the Veterans featuring  Miss Marion Carr as nurse, who was  shown caring for ar* injured soldier, Ted  Gardiner, with two vets, 'on guard in  the persons of H. A Powell and L*.  Ta/lor. With this tableau went a  sketch of the .objects of the Legion read  by president W. V. Jackson. The other  dtpicted a scene from Creston public  hospital again showing Miss Carr, with  her patient Louise Hare.  The final   two  were  fraternal,    and  were       exceptionally        attractive.   A  glimpse  of   the   aims   of   the   Pythian  Sisters was gived in a sketch read by  Mrs. R.   M.   Hassard   followed   by the  tableau in which Mrs. McWilliams, Miss  Olga Hagen, Mrs. A. E. French, Mrs. E.  Cartwright   and 'Mrs.   R.  M.   Telford  took part.   How Pythianism came into  being was read by  W. V.   Jackson  and  was followed immediately  by a strong .  scene in which were presented W- G.   close ?s the evening  Hendy, R. Maxwell. Vic.

For the most  part  the numbers were musical.   D. Taylor  opened with a solo, and was followed, by  an Irish number by  Harold Langston  W.     McL.     Cooper proved  himself a  capable     lnpersonatbr,      his     Chinese  number    making   a   great    hit.    Miss  Ethel VanAc-keran, again distinguished  herself    with   her   song, "Frahkie and  Johnny,"   which   was   nicely   rendered.  Mrs    Kolthammer    and   Miss  Frances  Knott favored   with   a   pleasing   duett  Mrs. G. Vigne was another of the vocalists, whose Irish   number   was   popular.  For the children's benefit there were pie  eating and cracker eating contests which  were won by Bob  Clarkson  and Phyllis  Lowther.   John Finlay was well received  in a couple of cornet solos,  and another  popular number was the piano duett by  Miss Edith Palfrey man and  Mrs. J. E.  Johnston.   The   latter also contributed  an elocutionary number that was much  applauded.   Mr.     and     Mrs.     Harold  Langston were popular with  their vocal  number, "Just an Echo*in  the Valley,"'  H. A. Powell had a real Irish number  in  "Fathtr   O'Flynn."   The accompanists  of the evening were Miss Gwen  Wilson  Quite a number from here Were at  Creston on Friday night for the Legion's  St. Patrick's jamboree, and John Finlay,  A, W.^Sinclair, arid D.

Quite a number of  visitors were present, Creston, Erickson,  Sirdar and Boswell all being represented.  The March meeting of Wynndel  Women's Institute was held on Thursday   last.    Mrs.   Robinson,   president,  presided.   Minutes and financial statement were read and adopted;   There was  a discussion as to whether money raised  in future should bo set aside for the new  hospital building fund or sent to the  Creston Hospital Women's Auxiliary,  It was decided to ask the auxiliary ii  hospital needs wore urgent. $10.45 was  reported made at the last hospital  bridge.

"At; a special general "meetihg of the  Crestoh Co-operative 7Fruit Exchange,  held Saturday, history making- changes  were made in local fruit-circles.  -'.' From a very lengthy and comprehensive . report read by President Jas.  Compton, no doubt can be left in the  minds of the growers as to the intentions  of the directors of the Exchange to get  down to brass tacks and handle the  packing and selling of the Crestoh  tonnage on an economy basis which  should produce startlins results for the  growers.  This report went carefully into every  phase of the costs and efficiency of the  present system of handling and selling*  The following recommendations were  made and received a unanimous vote of  approva1:  The cancellation of tho contract with  the Associated Growers of B.C., Limited,  it being pointed out by the directors that  Creston can put her apples on the  prairie markets as far east as Swift  Current, Sask., more cheaply than any  district in the apple growing industry,  Creston's geographical position giving  her this advantage, seems logical to  expect the trade to follow the same  tactics, they have since business has been  business and to buy where^they can buy  the cheapest. This being tho case it is  reasonable to expect that Creston will  enjoy just as much support under the  new plan as under the. wing of the  Associated, and that a big saving can bo  effected in selling costs.  Tho report also advocotcd n closer  hook up of the management of tho  Exchange and proposed to accomplish  this by rolling all tho depurtmentu into  one and making ono man responsible for  oconomy and eflficieny all round.  The failure of the Exchange this year  to take advantage of opportunities of  BflHng opplCfiffor export at firm prices  has received a groat deal of local critic  Ism and this situation waa cleared up' by  oxpluntfUona. It wa* pointed out that  the export deal is handled by Vcmon  olHco oxcluHively, tho local buIgs manager  having no jurisdiction ovor this deal.  The growera were reminded of tho very  prorniBing outlooh for export early in tho  scatioii.

She returned on  Saturday.  Miss Hasrel White left for her home in  Fernie on Saturday.  Work at the airport east of here is  progressing splendidly. An area^ taking  in the whole length of the field, which is  over half a mile long and 500 feet wide,  has been stumped and only a etrip of  about 300 feet wide remains. The  number of men in camp is keeping up to  the usual average of the past two  months. Brigadier Matthews, C.M.G.,  D S.O., commanding military district  No. 13, under which the airports at  Salmo, Kitchener and Yahk, are  administered, paid a visit to the Kitchener airport on Wednesday.  A very successful dance was held in  the new mess hall on St Patrick's night.  March 17th. Over 100 guests attended  and dancing was kept up until 5 a.m.  The hall was tastefully decorated in  green and white, with an abundance Of  flags. At midnight the guests enjoyed a  sumptuous sit-down supper* tables being  in St Patrick colors. Great credit is due  Geo.

The fact has been noted in this column on previous occasions that during-the past two or three years everybody has been discussing the monetary  situation prevailing in the world today, and expressing opinions U3id offering  solutions in regard thereto even though they lacked the most elementary  knowledge of the subject. People informed and uninformed, from, the most  outstanding economists and financiers to the most indifferent student or casual newspaper reader, have discussed banking-, currency, credits, the gold  standard, Inflation, deflation, international exchange, and a host of allied  subjects, with the same freedom and frequently with the same assurance  with which they are in the habit of discussing the weather.  This, of course, people have a right to do, but the net result has "been  Five  Complete Sets  ' :&>iiirW:'^"  o  "alios  theories, the outcome of which is that large numbers of people are not thinking straight on this important subject, while the majority of the population  are hopelessly bewildered and confused, and do not know whose or what  opinions to accept as sound and a safe guide to action.  Nor is this to be wondered at, because even some of the most generally  accepted theories.���������theories advanced by world famous economists,���������have  been proven incorrect %vhen put to the test of actual experience. This was |  demonstrated in most startling fashion in the United States in the last few  days of February and the first days of March. Events across the line moved  with great rapidity, and the outcome was to upset previously held views in  some important particulars.  Great Britain went off the gold standard in order to check the draining  away of its gold reserves and to stop the export of gold from the country.  It frankly and officially announced it had gone off the gold standard. The  United States had accumulated more than a third of all the gold in the world,  yet it, too, reached the point where it was necessary to stop all gold export,  just as Canada had stopped it. But, unlike "Great Britain, both Canada and j  the United States insisted they were still on the gold standard. So, people |  are asking, what is a gold standard? Just what does it mean?" j  But the most surprising development of all came in the United States, j  The Government authorized the issue of some billions of dollars of new paper  money which was not backed by gold at all, yet the Government insisted tho  country was still on the gold standard. The issue of this new currency was  out-and-out inflation, nevertheless the Government announced it was "sound  money," not-withstanding that it had no gold backing, because it was supported by real assets.  Now, according to formerly generally accepted financial opinion, the  issue -of such new currency unbacked by gold would have the effect of depreciating the value  of  the  country's  currency.

The discount on the Canadian dollar  in the United States was increased, and the premium on the United States  dollar in Canada became larger.

But the United States proceeds to inflate to the  tune of billions of dollars, the Government declares it. is "sound money," and  a*~4.0aj*l,C*v*     vt������  ties  Lt^vaXlj^     CXI    a,Ox WA������������,-������-%    X/������  they actually increase in value.  If this is the effect in the United States, why should an exactly opposite  effect be the result in Canada if a similar policy was indulged in ? It will be  interesting to hear the explanations of cur Canadian financiers and economists.  It has been widely contended that inflation should be indulged in by  Canada to an extent sufficient to bring the Canadian dollar to a parity with  the British pound and thereby promote a larger exchange of trade between  the two countries and secure to the primary producer in Canada a better  price in Canadian dollars for the products he sold in Great Britain. But, it  was likewise argued, another effect would be to increase the already heavy  premium Canada is now obliged to pay on all its commitments in the United  States.- .    .      ���������    ���������������  But, as already noted, inflation in the United States has not worked  tills way, but in exactly the opposite way. It has not brought the United  States dollar near the British pound, but farther away from it. It has not decreased the premium which Canada has to pay in New York, but Increased  it. If inflation worked the same way In Canada it would not prove an advantage to the primary-producers, who have been urging inflation, but impose  a further loss upon them; it would not add to the burden of our governments  and business Interests having large commitments to meet in New York, and  who have therefore opposed inflation, but it would assist them.  It is all far more complicated and confusing than a jig-saw puzzle because  the pieces do not fit together at all, while in the popular puzzles of today  the pieces can be made to fit.  staff of experts, as well as represen- [ ary  sixteen  to  twenty  inches - have t the hotel's standard equipment.

In the past, as recently as_a year  ago last summer, unavailing efforts  have been made to reach just such  an agreement on international con-  trot of wheat production. A factor  preventing definite results was the  inability of the American government to control the domestic output.

"What bridge is that,'* he asked, but the
farmer did not reply, for approaching
them appeared a slight, elderly, but very
wiry looking man who, coming within
hail, gave them good day.
The farmer, halted his team and
addressing the wiry one said, "How's she
coming, Bill?" "Slow," returned the
other. "I've been held up for piling and
don't know yet when I am  going to get
true," rejoined the
farmer, "and anyway you have enough
old plank back there to keep your expert
examiners busy for a long, long time yet.
"Tell me, Bill," he went on. "why didn't
yon get your piling over here. There is
all the piling you can use; good stuff can
be secured for several cents per foot less
than you are paying for it. Is that one
ol the ways of saving the department's
money? To buy piling, haul it 20 miles
and get a poor grade of jpnaterial, when
you could have beaten the price you are
paying.selecting your own stuff, hauled it
two miles, and been sure of deliveries.
And that isn't all; from what my eyes
told me you are using sticks back there
that are nothing but deadwood. Nature
went out of them years ago, and I'll bet
that if you rapped them too hard
with the hammer you would split them
from, crown to foot in spite of the heavy
driving ring you put on thern."
"Well," said the wiry one, "you
who orders the piling, and you
where it comes from, and that being the
case there is nothing for you or" I to
wonder at. Anyway, I get my orders
and I try to carry them out with the
material that is supplied to me, be it
good or bad. And if a bridge falls down
a few years after it is built why, maybe
they wiil give me the job to. build it up
again."
"Yes," said the farmer, "It looks like
a lifelong job for you, but when the
bridges fall down it sometimes

have to u=e them. Anyway, when do
you expect to have the bridge ready for
traffic again?" "About haying time,"
came the answer. "And this one?"
enquired the farmer, pointing ahead.
"Can't tell," said the wiry gone, "maybe
in time for haying and maybe not."
And tc this the farmer's only reply was
embodied in one word, "Rotten," said
he, then chiropped to his team, leaving
the wiiy one standing in the middle of
the road   gazing   at  the   back   of   the

with the greatest welcome given, a Chevrolet since 1929. Then,
up stepped the leader with another entirely new line of cars,, the
Standard Six. Down Went the Chevrolet base-price to the lowest
figure in history for a full-size, six-cylinder closed car. And the
guvyfljol-iit; f\f ^ufclic interest fbisHc^. brighter thsus ever on Chevrolet^
Now ��� for the first time ��� there aire two Chevrolet Sixes ���
the Standard and the Master. Body-styles for everybody. Prices
for several different groups of buyers.. But only one standard of
quality-���the very'same high standard that has made CHEVROLET the greatest name in low-priced motoring.
Both Standard and Master lines offer Air-Streamed Bodies by
Fisher'���safety glass windshields���and that newest General Motors
sensation: Fisher No-Draft Ventilation. In the Standard Six,
you can enjoy all these advantages at the lowest operating cost of
any full-size car on the road.

For awhile neither of the men riding
behind fhe team broke the silence.
Then, as the road swung again to the
west, the ��� farmer halted his horses and
addressing himself to the stranger, said:

won't take you long because the facts

in these parts; when they haven't the
price to. visit the beauty parlor."
The stranger proceeded back over the
road they had just turned from to get a
closeup of this second structure, and for
reasons best known to himself seemed
determined to gather in all the details of
its construction, faults and previous
repair. Then, seemingly satisfied with his
scruitiny he turned to the rig where,
hoisting himself aboard, announced his
readiness to continue the journey.
"Did you get any pointers?", asked the
farmer. "Yes," the other replied,
"plenty. The bridge is washed out at
both ends or, rathar, the earth road leading to it is; also it has happened before,
and also if I don't miss my guess it is going to happen again." "Stranger," said
the farmer, "the way you can add two

"8orvoH tho Pima"
and two together and make the sum of
four is a credit to your early training, as
you say it has happened before, and it is
going so happen again, in fact as long as
that caput mortum."
"What's   that,"\? said   the   stranger.
talkirig to myself... Caput mortum is
what the Romans would have called him'
and they would have named him rightly;
he is just that. -"Hear, hear," said the
stranger, "from what I have seen I stand
ready to second the motion."   .
"Well, quit standing up when we are
traveling," suggested the farmer, you are
likely to tumble out and get damaged.
Then I should have to haul you back to
town again, and I think you quite
realize how much of you there would be
left for those doctors to fight over.
Why, if I had to haul you in lying helpless in the bottom of, tnis rig over these
roads you'd arrive in a mush; in fact
you'd be another caput mortum, and one
of them is enough one too many in fact,
and if it stays put much longer the
whole of this road is going to be washed
out. He hasn't the sense to take any
precautions to protect from the yearly
damage."
"What measures of protection would
you suggest," asked the stranger. The
farmer thought for aimoment and then
said: "When the pile-driver is on the
job to pound in the sticks to carry the
new bents that are how required they
could, with little added expense, drive a
few piles along the bank; face them with
plank, and thus divert the current of the
river into mid-channel. It will have to
be done sometime or the whole of this
river will tear its way through the road
out onto these wheat lands, and that will
mean a lot more farmers in the poor-
house.
"Yes," agreed the stranger, "that
solution occurred to me." "it
would come to anybody," came the re-
joiner, "if their brains were not addled
by bad beer, for instance. But here we
are, another bridge built in 1916 and
still going rotten!'. It seemed the farmer
spoke words oE truth for as the horsea
came upon the structure the whole works
swayed, trembled ar|d buckled to an
alarming extent.   I fact the motion be-

came so violent that the farmer stopped
his. team to allow the bridge to become
steady again.
During the halt the farmer called his
companion's 7 attention to several
features. ML6ok -: at that,'?* her said,
pointing to where the rough hewn
timber which formed the floor- of . the
bridge had been almost burnt through,
"that hrppehed about 12 years ago.

because they arn't there; they haven't
been there for many a year. Look at
those bull rails; jump out and size them

The. stranger alighted and proceeded
to test the strength of the timbers with
his foot and as he kicked the logs they
crumbled. "And that," said the farmer,
"is the motorists protection from going
into the drink, if he should allow his car
to leave the centre of the bridge;   Come
aboard and let's get going; the sight of
this makes me sad." The stranger

Would Enable People To See Works  Of Famous Artists  Sir Philip Bassoon Is chairman of  the British National Gallery, and it  is interesting to learn that he has  expressed himself in favour of sending collections of famous paintings  to other parts of the world, particularly the British Empire. Little  enough ia known in Canada about  British artists, ancient or modern, and  it. would be & splendid thing if a  touring collection were sent - here.  Everybody knows about Sir Luke  Fildes* "The Doctor," which hangs in  almost every doctor's office, but he-  yond a few- of the most popular  works British artists are mere names.  The National Galloy contains  A.  ���������220c,4-aot*I.c  4AC  Italian and Dutch painters, and presumably any travelling exhibit would  also include some of them.  Parliament would have to pass a  special Act, as once a picture is hung  in the National Gallery it is not supposed to be moved. In the present  state of what Joseph. Chamberlain  called "thinking Imperially" there  should be little opposition to such a  proposal, even although the insurance  would have to be enormous.  Any peripatetic exhibition should  undoubtedly include, if it can be arranged, a -selection from,    the:   Tate  of the works of British painters who  are, or were living, at,the time their  works were selected. It is there that  "The Doctor" hangs, and some of the  more splendid canvasses which British people throughout the world  would be thrilled to'see.  Having regard to the fact that  foreign countries have sent art exhibits of fabulous value to London in  recent years the British government  should not be slow to act.���������St. Thomas Times-Journal.  .

The name of the airplane  "Silver Dart," which was piloted by  J. A. D. McCurdy, who now is president of the Montreal Aircraft Industries, is printed in large type. The  distance then flown was one-half a  mile with no mishaps reported in  landing.  Associated with Mr, McCurdy in  the construction of the gasoline motor-powered "Silver Dart" "were Dr.'  Alexander Graham Bell, F. W. Baldwin, grandson of Hon. Robert Baldwin, Premier of Canada before Confederation; Glen R. Curjis, Ian C.  Morgan, president; International Airmail Society, said in his review of  the circumstances under which the  flight was undertaken. Mr. McCurdy  is a graduate in englnering of the  University of Toronto in 1906.  Added interest to the event woisfc,  the fact that Mr. McCurdy, a Bad*-  deck man, had drawn the plans, so  that tlie machine which made, the  first flight in Canada primarily was  a Canadian product. In honor of the  occasion, the Baddeck Town Council  presented an engraved testimonial of  esteem to Dr. Bell and Mr. McCurdy,  including these in thoir historicial  records.
