The junior basketball league, which  has been operating since October, has  now completed 60 per cen .of the games  scheduled, the greater number bf games  in which have been played at Park  pavilion, Creston. Teams entered come  from Canyon, which supplies both, a  oys and girls team; there is a girls'  team from Erickson. and Creston has a  girls' team nnd two boys' teams from the  High School. Creston public school also  has a boys' and girls' squad.  Up to the middle of January, when the  last games were played this month.  Canyon is leading in both divisions, the  boys having won five out of six games  and the girls with a sho sing of four out  of six. The Canyon hoopsters are being  trained by Principal Hunden ,o������ the  public school at that point.

Erickson is playing basketball for the  first time and the -girls' quintette, with a  little more experience, should give a good  accou "%' of themselves. These players  are handicapped in having to practice  and play their games at Creston, as  there is no building suitable for the sport  in Erickson The team is handled by  Principal Cobus of Erickson public  school.

Hay haulers found it .out of  the question to find the road on the  slough so bad was the snow drifted. A  real cold spell set in on Saturday with  the temperature reaching 26 below?Sunday morning. Snow on Monday anrj  Tu * sday has eased thing)? off, and th  thermometer has since gohe well above  zero. ��������� '?--7 ���������"  The decidedly cold weather that set in  on Saturday morning and the badly  drifted state of the highways are a  combination.that has called a halt in  dyke construction on ths Creston  Reclamation Company, Limited, area on  the flats. 13 below zero on Saturday  was a trifle too much for the drivers of  same time the public works department  conscripted the bulldozer to cope with  road opening operations in the area, between Wynndel and Kitchener, it being  the only machine powerful enough to  make headway in the well packed drifts  at many points on the roads.  At the end bf the week it was stattd  that 10 ^_ miles of the 13 miles of dyke  that has to be built is now fully completed, and with reasonably good weather  another six weeks will finish the whole  job- Of the uncompleted portion about  1000 feet at the Wynndel end is dragline  work���������the balance can be handled by  the big scrapers that have been doing  such fast work along the Kootenay River  bank.  At the middle of January the Duck  Creek diversion was successfully com  pleted. . A flume 150^ feet long, 12 feel  wide and 5 feet high carries the water  f-om the C P.R. right of way over the  old channel into its new course, passing  down, through the properties of Mrs.  Paul "Hagen, Carl Carlson and Matt.  Hagen, ending on some property the  Reclamation Company has purchased  from the estate of the late Chas. Faas.  The Du������*k Creek diversion is 16 feet  wide and 2600 feet long. The excavation work on this was done by the  dragline.

Oil -Company has recently unloaded - a *\car. of gasoline' in  drums which will be'stored at stragetic  points along the route of the dyke to  assure of no interruption jn operations  should the weather break up, as dyke  work must be proceeded with.  It is announced that more than 3000  acres of the d-^ked lands will be cropped  in 1935-    Much of the acreage will  be  sown to coarse grains.   Some experirn  entai work is expected to be tried' out in .  growing peas and soft wheat.  While operations at the south end were  somewhat slower than anticipated, due  to breaking in machine operators, much  of the time lost has been made up by the  scrapers which have put up dyke-along  the Kootenay River bank somewhat  faster .than was exppcted. and there-is no  doubt now but that the work will' he  completed almost at the date originally  estimated.  the  Sirdar  7 Chan. -Wilson is a  Nelson this week.  business visitor to  orr   here.  mhiStwQm*  Vernon Donnldsttn, ������Wbb Is nn appendicitis patient at Creston tyogpltal, continues to make a vory satisfafltovy recovery.

The skin when  stretched "measured eight feet froro,  tip to tip.  The animal was killed with a .22  calibre rifle, five shots being fired before the lion was stopped. The first  four shots merely glanced off the  beast's head, partly stunning It. It  had turned on Mr. Whitford and was  charging down on him when It was  dropped by a bullet in a vital spot  just behind the ear.  A three-year-old steer which was  killed in the vicinity the previous  night ia believed to have been  slaughtered by the lion.

Putting tke World Together Again  A new book recently issued under the title "Courage For To-day" begins  with a little story that has a lot of meaning in it. A man gave his small  son a very elaborate jig-saw puzzle. It had been made by tearing a map of  the world into little pieces. In a short time the child reported that the picture of he world was all put together. "How could you have done it so  fast?" asked the father in amazement. ''Oh, it was easy," answered the  child. "You see, there was a picture of a man on the other side. When 1  put him together, the world was put together, too."  Men, and parties, and governments are all trying to put this old world  together again. The number of plans and theories and policies advocated as  tlae only way in which this gigantic task can be accomplished are beyond  computation or classification. Speeches teem with suggestions of all kinds,  newspaper and magazine articles Sow in an uninterrupted stream from the  printing presses, books are piled upon books, all presenting the speaker's or  writer's idea of the particular thing that must be done. To-days brilliant  suggestion is completely destroyed by to-morrow's conribution until practically all of us are in a fog.  Men of prominence, leaders of their fellow men, change their views over  night and to-day are found denouncing that which they vigorously upheld  and championed yesterday; whole nations almost in the twinkling of an eye  abandon policies and forms of government which, for scores of years, even  centuries, have "been accepted as traditionally sound and wise. One group  declares that mankind must retrace its steps backward to the uibal communal state and so they declare for Communism. Another group says man  must be deprived of those personal liberties won by him through centuries  of struggle and must be regimented, controlled and ordered like privates in  an army and be made to surrender all hope or right to profit above a  standard form of living which may result from his individual initiative and  efforts, and this group declares for State Socialism. A third group holds  these other groups to be all wrong and adheres to the view that man is incapable of self-government, that democracy is an abject failure, and that  only a selected few are wise enough, strong enough, capable enough to  govern and that they should take full control into their hands, and retain it  by force if and when necessary, and impose their will and ideas upon all  others.   They declare for Fascism and dictatorship.  Each and all of these groups fail to recognize and learn the simple  lesson which the small boy with his jig-saw puzzle so quickly demonstrated,  namely, that if man himself is made ri-rht the world itself wil! be ri<*rhted.  Business in the hands of dishonest men" will be dishonest business, and its  mere transfer from private to governmental control, whether Democratic,  Communist, Socialist or Fascist, will not make business honest. There has  been as much, if not more, graft and corruption, and just as many mistakes  made, if, indeed, not more, under governments as there have been in public  business. Private business has corrupted and bedevilled governments, hut,  so too, have governments corrupted, bedevilled and destroyed private business and made huge and costly blunders. In fact, governments, supported,  even driven by their people, are more responsible for the present ills of the  world than is private business as now constituted.  And who Is responsible ? Many an honest business man has been forced  to adopt unethical, even dishonest practices, because his customers have demanded it of him. The same is time of high princlpalled men entrusted  with the duties and responsibilities of government. A government adopts a  policy in the general public interest, it imposes a tax for the necessary purposes of government, and the average man and woman cudgel their brains  to devise ways and means of evading the tax and escaping their responsibilities. One person smuggles to escape paying Customs duties, another  swears to a false affidavit to avoid paying a gasoline tax, still another  4'doctors" an income tax return, and so it goes.  Completely changing the system will not effect a cure; it is man himself who must change. It Is the human factor that is wrong, and until it is  made right there will continue to be dishonesty and wrongs no matter what  the system may be, and the larger the degree of power placed in the hands  of a few the greater tho wrongs will be because the greater the power the  greater the opportunity for evil, and because the possession of power always  leads to the grasping for moro power regardless of the methods whereby  it may be obtained.  Governments aro created to govern a country; not to usurp tho rights  and destroy tlie liberties of the people. People should control and direct  their governments; not tho government control and direct the people. It Is  the duty and responsibility of governments to check and control the dishonest and eliminate wrongs and abuses imposed by Individuals or groups  of individuals upon others. That is tho function of governments acting ln  the interests of all, but It Is not a proper government function to Interfere  with or usurp the rights of individuals in tlio proper ordering of their own  lives and in the carrying on of their legitimate occupations.  Tho inalienable rights of man aro lift), liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Life is more than monoy and business; liberty Is much moro than  a regimented mode of existence and a stated standard of living; the pursuit  ot happiness must bo left to tho individual otherwise ho cannot bo happy.  Cod conferred on man a mind and will of hla own, and man must work out  hia own salvation, and, aided by such institutions aa ho may himself doviso  and set up to assist him, through education and otherwise, rise to higher  things and nobler conceptions.  Politicians, financiers, economists, social workers,���������all must como to a  realization and acceptance of tho fact demonstrated by tho small boy's jigsaw puzzle, namely, that tho speediest way to put thia old world together  again ia to put man himself together as n "Divine Creator Intended him to bo.

Weird Happenings  Strange Phenomena Attracts Attention At Home Of Ontario Farmer  Weird and unearthly happenings at  the home of Joseph Qulnn, farmer,  residing in North Burgess township,  about 14 miles from Perth, Ont.,  have aroused the countryside for  miles around. Stones flying through  the windows, thrown apparently by  no human hand; irons used for pressing clothes walking downstairs of  their own volition; a teapot which  jumped off the stove into the wood-  box; pictures .itumbllng from the walls  without cause, and other mysterious  happenings, have focused the attention of the neighborhood.  So serious has the matter become  that Ontario provincial police visited  the home to investigate. Many persons in the neighborhood vouched for  the truth of the happenings.

CRESTON,  0.  .//^  SAAR TERRITORY  PASSES INTO THE  HANDS OF NAZI  Saarbruecken, Saar Basin Territory.���������Adolf Hitler's Saar opposition  crumbled completely and the Saar, in  effect, passed into Nazi hands.  The League of Nations government  was still in nominal authority, hut it  was evident the league commissioners, bowing to the will of the people  expressed in the plebiscite's 90 per  cent. pro-German vote, meant to  stand to one side.  As unconfirmed reports reached  this capital that five persons had  been killed and several wounded in  post-plebiscite fighting, the demoralized anti-Nazi Common Front moved  its headquarters across the border to  French soil.  Despatches from Forbach, France,  said several hundred Saar refugees  arrived on French soil. Four of them  reported they had been fired upon as  they started to turn back to the Saar.  French authorities were anicinating  many thousands of self-exiles, the  despatches said.  Bluecoat police, controlled by  Nazis, moved into the Socialist welfare centre from which the anti-  Nazi plebliscite campaign had been  directed, swept out several hundred  Hitler opponents refuged there and  occupied the building.

President Roosevelt Asks Senate To  Ratify American Adherence  Washington.���������In the . interests of  "world peace," President Roosevelt  asked the United States senate in a  special message to ratify American  adherence to the world court.  The brief presidential' message also  urged that ratification "be given in  such form as not to defeat or to delay the objective of adherence."  This was interpreted in senatorial  circles as representing opposition to  any new reservations.  Mr. Roosevelt asserted that for  years both Republicans and Democrats in party platforms had- favored  adherence.  "The sovereignty of the United  States," he said, "will be in no way  diminished or jeopardized by such  action. At this period in international relationships, when every act is of  moment to the future of world peace,  the United States has an opportunity once more to throw its/weight into  the scale in favor of peace."  ARMSEMBARGG  AGAINST BOLIVIA  Geneva.���������-For the first time in ft-9  history the League of Nations took  punitive action against a war-making  member.  Because Paraguay has failed to  accept the league's plan for peace in  the Cbaco, the league's Chaco advisory committee voted to reinforce the  arms embargo against Paraguay ar d  lift the embar***o against- Bolivia,  which has accepted the plan.  Bolivia henceforth will be free to  buy, and nations adhering to the  league's embargo will be free to sell,  armaments and munitions.  An unprecedented step, it creates  delicate problems for the United  States, inasmuch as the American  congress, in authorizing the embargo,  stipulated that It should be operated  against both the warring nations.  Paraguay is given a further chance-  to accept the peace plan, since the  .resolution specifies that Feb. 24 is the  date of expiration of the three montna  Paraguay has to decide finally concerning the detailed plan for ending  the war.

Tree Fruit Board figures released as at January 4th through  the Apple Cartel provide'in for ma-;  tive reading as to marketing.  The 1934 crop has been placed at  4,278,243 boxes, and sales to that  date were 39 per cent, to export  and 37 per cent, to domestic  markets. On the domestic market the preference has been for  Wagners on which 67 per cent  has been sold, along with 55 per  cent, of the Mcintosh Reds. 71  per cent, of the Jonathans have  gone overseas, along with 55 per  cent, of the Winesap and New-  towns, and 2o per cent, of the  Romes. These percentages have  to do with the total sales to that  date, which accounted for but 43  per cent, of the total of the latter  variety, in the matter of keeping qualities the Cartel figures  would indicate that the Wagener  is making the poorest showing.  The dump on that variety to  date has been 2.5 per cent., as  compared with 1.2 per cent of  Mcintosh, .7 per cent, of Jonathan anb Romes, and .5 on Wine-  sap and Newtown.  Investigations that have just  been completed by Roger F.  Borrett, chairman of the grades  committee   of   the    B.C.F.G.A.,  Cranbrook Courier: A general  tightening up of the whole liquor  situation must be faced by the  provincial government sooner or  later, particularly with regard to  the number of young people, both  male ^and. fem^lefwho: cannot  attend ;a dance without a fla k of  whiskey. The spectacle herc*  Christmas and New Year's wa-*  worse than in Cranbrook's wide-  open days. Prohibition did not  prohibit and government control  does not control. Many support-  ors of government control are  "fed up" with the present system  and may circulate a petition asking for a return to the old saloon  system, which gave the younger  people the gate. Operators of  beer "narlors arc* not anxious for  the trade cf young people and  a number have openly expressed  themselves on the question.  Thirty years ago, when Cran  brook was considered "wild and  woolley," no person would think  of going to a dance with a bottle  on their hip. whereas today we  have the spectacle of a young  man being considered a "sissy"  and old fogey because he went to  a dance to enjoy himself rather  than to have his brain muddled.  Unless there is a tightening up of  conditions locally the city council  will have to enforce more rigidly  regulations for the guidance of  dances and similar functions.  Editor Review:  Sir,���������In the January 11th issue  of your paper appeared a letter  advocating the construction of  what was termed an electric sewer*  It is obvious that the writer is  unacquainted with the facts concerning his theory or he would  not have made such sweeping  statements without basis.  The "few watts" mentioned  r y Mr. Edmondson as the pow������**r  of a toaster* are, as you know, a  few hundred, which is a trifle  differ* nt.  By definition in Webster's dictionary a sewer is "An artificial  conduit to carry off household  waste, p-uch as slops, waste water  from sinks, baths, etc., and the  excreta consisting of urine and  faeces." This proposed device is  not a sewer, because it would dispose only of bodily wastes���������not  tap water or similiar substances.  Also hydrogen sulphide driven  out of solution would rise up the  chimney by convection currents  and descend on the town to, sooner  or later, blanket it with its nbx-.  ious fumes.  Mr. Edmondson states that  "Quicker than it takes to burn  your toast the excrement is reduced to ashes." Taking the  time for this oxidation as I ^2  minutes the requir. d power would  be at least 10,000 watts, which  would necessitate the construction of special transformers of  high wattage on the power line of  West Kootenay Power & Light  Company. This is scarcely feasible.  The cost per operation would  be about four cents, therefore the  average family cost would be 16  cents per day, almost $5 per  month. Added to all this would  be the cost of heating the cement,  block with a volume of about  2500 cubic inches, which -would  double the cofet. Then,, including  the loss due to ' inefficiency the  cost per family per vear would be  $150, or $30,000 per year for the  village, which would easily pay  for an efficient sewer system in  two years.  Assuming that by an "electric  torch," generally acknowledged  to be an illuminating device, Mr.  Edmondson means an electric furnace, the cost for construction  alone would be considerable.  Added to all the������e disadvantages is the disagreeable task of removing the residue. Maybe, "The  man who settled our former  greivance" is prepared to invent  an automatic ash distributor.  The purpose of this letter is not  to maliciously criticize Mr. Ed-  mondson's inventive genius, nor  to advocate the present lamentable system of sewage disposal,  but to enlighten the worthy citizens of our fair town of the impracticability of Mr. Edmondson's  "electric sewer."

Editor Review:  Sir, ���������In the report of the growers meeting, published last issu**,  you made an error in printing  that a motion was passed asking  that Creston district have a member ON the Tree Fruit Board.  What was actually requested, was  a representative OF the board, in  this valley, as was stated in the  report I gave you. The growers  committee, and I think a majority,  if not all the Creston growers realize that for this district to actually have a member on the  board would be of little value and  would increase the expense and  inconvenience of the board's  operating.  May 1 also point out that the  meeting did not express itself aa  being against a connection with  the B.C.F.G.A., should it be revived in other districts. fPhis was  implied hy your heading.

Thursday sees much progress being  made in Creston and district at digging  out after the blizzard that prevailed  from shortly after noon on Thursday  last until almost noon on Satu day.  While the wind did not attain the veloc-  iity of the blow of the year previous, nor  was it anywhere near in the class of the  ail-time blow, of JL>;?eemfoer, Iyz4, this  year's storm was the more uncomfortable due the fact that there was much  light snow available and the wind made  .good use of the white mantle to fill up  highways and sidewalks to depths previously unrecorded. And to still further  aggravate matters daily snowfalls have  been in evidence almost every day since  the wind died down.  In town the sidewalks were piled so  high that they had to be dug out by hand,  while on some of the roads the snow was  packed so deep and tight that the bulldozer and 75 h.p. caterpillar used on  right of way clearing work on the dykes  had to be put to work to open up stretches of the road. All the available snow-  ploughs have been in action 24 hours  daiiy, and by the end of the week travel  conditions wiii be back to normal.  The snow has been so deep and drifted-  so badly that the busses have been withdrawn since last Thursday and the auto  truck freight service has also been crippled. In town the snow was so troublesome that at least one of the transfer  companies had to resort to team and  sleigh to make deliveries.  The wind was so  strong and  bitter  M.J.Boyd, skip; S.

The suit was invented by Commander Prieur of the French Navy.  The essential point about it ia that  the diver wears a breastplate which  Is really a steel bottle of compressed  air. The whole suit is easily handled  and can foe put on In SO seconds. The  diver can remain below the surface  for about 25 minutes. He is quite  free of the ropes or air tubes which  usually connected divers with a boat  overhead.

A trial railroad line has been constructed of  welded rails, each approximately 98  feet long and so connected that there  aro practically no joints. An express  train, without passengers, will be  driven over this line until a mileage  of about 62,500 is attained. These  tests are to last about three months  with 10 trips being made each day  at a speed of from 75 to 95 miles  an hour.

Guest, M.A.)  Electricity is one of man's most  useful servants and has added much  to our bodily comforts. Some years  ago scientists began to wonder as to  the nature of electricity. It is only  within the last thirty years that the  electron theory has been developed.  In 1891, a scientist, G. Johnstone  Stoney, suggested the name electron  for the natural unit of electricity. The  modern scientist believes that negative electricity consists of electrons  and it has been shown that it takes  1845 electrons to weigh as much as  one hydrogen atom. It is usually considered by scientists that matter is  granular and electrical in nature.  There is very convincing evidence to  prove that the hydrogen atom is  made up of one positive electron  called a proton and one negative  electron, which is usually called the  electron.  What is called an electric current  is now believed to be simply a flow  of electrons through a wire; and it is  considered that good conductors of  electricity such as gold, silver and  copper, have a good many electrons  loosely held. In the case of nonconductors, it seems that there are  few free electrons.  When a glass rod is rubbed with  silk, the negative charge taken on by  the silk is due to the fact that some  free electrons are rubbed off the  glass; while the glass, having lost  electrons,' takes on a positive charge.  In general, it is assumed that a neutral body takes on a positive charge  when it loses electrons, and a negative charge when it gains electrons.  Lightning can also be explained by  means of the electron theory. Electrons, or charged molecules of air,  serve as nuclei around which moisture of the air may condense. In  time the droplets grow in size until  they fall as rain-drops, and it appears that they carry down large  numbers bf stray electrons, the final  result being that a very great potential is developed, followed by the passage or a "bolt" between the cloud  and the earth.  Explanations And Comments  Peter*.-- Over-confides^������ In His Loy-  altv to His Lord, verses 27-31. Jesus  said to the d'sclnles, "You will aii be  disconcerted [Moffatt's translation!  for it Is written Ca free adaptation of  Zechariah 13:7], I will smite the shepherd and tho sheen shall be scattered  abroad." "The quotation ia intended  to alleviate the scandal of the disciples' conduct, by snowing that it  was foretold" (Dummelow). The  Shepherd was smitten, and the sheep  were scattered���������all the disciples fled.  Peter and John (Jn. 18:15) followed  afar off.  Confidently and boastfully Peter  exclaimed, "Although all shall be  offended, yet will set I." "Peter  sinned in three wavs at once," explains the ancient writer Euthvmius:  "(1) in contradicting the prophet and  the Christ, <2) in placing himself  above the rest, (3) in trusting in himself alone, and not In the help of  God."  "Verily I say unto thee, that thou1,  to-day, even this night," solemnly  Jesus told him, "before the cock crow  twice, shalt deny me thrice."  Peter's Denial of His Lord, verses  51-54, 66-72. After the agony in  Cethsemane, the betra7/al and arrest  of Jesus (verses 32-50), Peter followed him at a distance to the palace of the high priest. Peter was  warming himself by the Are which  glowed in an open charcoal brazier.

"I neither know nor understand  what thou sayest," Peter said, utter-  lv bewildered by the happenings of  the night.  Peter went out into the porch and  the cock crew. Turning to the men  near by, the maid said, "This is one  of them," and he denied it. A little  later, after Peter had been talking  and had betrayed by his speech that  he came, from Galilee (Mt. 26:27) his  companions declared, "Of a truth  thou art one of them; for thou art a  Ga"-V-:a.n."  Then Peter began to curse and to  swear. He invoked a curse upon  himself if what he were telling were  not true when he said, "I know not  this Man of whom ye speak."  UR.

The Lisbon earthquake, the last day of Pompeii, the  loss of the Titanic, these are instances of them. What happened this  night in 1879 Is yet another.  It is one of those stories which are  quickly told yet leave much to  the  imagination.   The necessary facts to  bring it to the mind, to conjure up  the horror of it, are few indeed.   We  need only to know that in 1878 the  first great bridge over the River Tay,  in Scotland, was built.   It was nearly  two miles long, had  84  spans,   and  was 90 feet high.    One of the wonders of the world at that time, It was  destined to stand but a few months.  As this night Jn 1879 thc sun went  down in a wreck of scattered clouds.  There was a high   wind   which   increased   In velocity till it blew  with  tremendous force,   sweeping   up   tho  river at incredible speed.  In the blackness of that terrible  night a train with Its human freight  rushed across tlio bridgo, but never  reached tho other end. In an instant  13 of tlio great spans wore lifted  bodily, swayed a moment ovor thc  black wateis of the river, and then  crashed with tho train and all who  wero in it.  Out of time Into eternity thoy  went. Tho world shuddered. So, at  that groat price, wac bought the  knowledge whereby a stronger bridgo  wan built.���������Ottawa Journal, Dec. 28,  (Editor's Note: Have you had youi  handwritnig analysed by this well-  known graphologist?

Edith rose to hefc feet with a quick  little exclamation.;  "I'm going with you," She said  quickly. "You don't want to take one  of the men of; course. Anyhow,  they're all out.   But I mean to go."  His eyes sought and found hers.  He knew instantly that no distrust  underlay her words. There was a  lightness in her eyes and a quick  smile on ,her lips that forbade any  thought of guile. His own quick  smile replied to hers:  "I'll sure take good care of you  if you care to come," he said*. 'Til  get your pony, Miss Edith."  In ten minutes he was back with  his big Isabella horse and her pony  and they clattered out of the enclosure, past the corrals and turned  into the open trail that led westward  toward the foothills. Crewe and  Carr sood watching them till their  figures were swallowed up by the  red dust.  "There's somethin' damn funny  about that man Stone," quoth Crewe.  "I'm satisfied he's as straight as they  make 'em but he's sure somthing different from what he give out."  "He hasn't given out anything,"  growled Carr. "All I get is a notion  of a husky fellow.

The  nephew of his old partner, himself  half-owner in the ranch, could do no  less than help.  He held conference after conference with Crewo, and Stono, because  of hla alleged intimacy with Gerald  Keene, was called into those meetings. Plan after plan waa disputed  by tho ilerce-oyed old cattle-man,  "I know Dustin's got his knife out  for me," he said. "I know hla gang  of thieves has beon stealin' mo deaf,  dumb an' blind but I got no proof."  "Stono has," said Crowe.

He got it from his desk and studied  it wordlessly for a full minute.  "Of course old Shammy-skin Kane's  a fool," he said. "He's been wonder-  in' foot-loose over the ranges for so  long that his brains are addled. They  get that way sometimes. But I dont  believe he's big fool enough to tie  himself up with Dustin unless he's  got a stranglehold on him. I'd like  to find the old fool and find out what  he thinks he's found. Let's see. . ."  And again he fell to studying the  book.  "���������One half to Dustin.   .   ."    Huh I  That means of course that Dustin's  been   grub-stakin' him.    Why  would  Dustin grub-stake him?    The answer  is that Dustin knows Shammy-skin's  on the trail of somethin" good.   .   .*"  Stone snatched the book.  "There's more   to   it   than   you've  guessed yet," he said curtly.    "Tho  man   gives   rather   plain   directions  here.   ...

Let's  see tho directions again.  ..." And  he read:  " 'Red Water canon seven to ono to  whlto birch. Up Stinking Water  three two to sunk can'."  ". . .By God, Frank! ..." Carr  sprang into life.

Edith, too, wondered a great deal  about her companion. He could ride.  She knew that he was not afraid of  any one or, as far as she saw, of anything, but that might be the result  of ignorance, but his lamentable  ignorance of all ranch matters was  almost laughable at times. She half-  turned in her saddle as his horse  nosed up alongside the girth of her  mount.

A look in her gray eyes might  have told him that those questions  were not altogether prompted by idle  curiosity.  "Sure. Go ahead," he said cheerfully.  "Where did you come from and  how did you happen to land on the  Hour-glass ? You know Mr. Keene  pretty well, don't you? You must  know him well for him to have given  you the letter that he did."  "He owns a big garage in Cato,"  ho said non-committally. "That's  whero I saw him last. I've known  him a good many years. When I  learned about tho ranch, I got him  to give me the letter but when I got  hore the Hour-glass happened to need  a man and I didn't need to use the  letter.'"  "Did you work for Mr. Keene at  the garage?"  "For a while, yes'm.   ..."  "Don't say  'Ma'am'    to   mo,"   sho  said sharply.  "Whafll I say then?"  "You    might    try    'Edith/"'    sho  laughed.    "Most of tho others do."  "All right M' . . . I me un Edith  ..."

Wading through creeks and muskeg, tormented by blackflies and mosquitoes and practically without food,  he arrived at Fort Garry, now Winnipeg, 29 days after leaving Thunder  Bay, at tho head of the lakes.  Ho travelled the "Dawson route,"  mado famous by Col, Wolseley's  journey to quell the Red river rebellion in 1870, and used only once after  Duggan's historic journey. He still  has tho ticket for which ho paid $10.  On it is Inscribed:  "Red river route, No. 241, department of public works, Canada. Depot: "Thunder Bay, L.S., June 17,  1874.  "Good to O. .T.

Creston had its annual blizzard commencing Thursday afternoon last and  continuing till almost Saturday noon.  The wind was not as strong as in the big  blow last winter, but lasted much longer.  The wind was so severe Friday morning  that it was necessary to close the school.  The coldest weather of the winter, and  one of the three coldest touches Creston  has ever known, was encountered on  Sunday morning when the mercury  went down to 23 below zero. It was 11  below Saturday a.m:, 13 below Monday,  two below on Tuesday, and 16 above  Wednesday.
