Since it was found the tenders originally submitted for the construction of the  new building were so far in excess of the  $15,500 available/ tbe plans have been  redraftedand the two lowest tenderers,  one of whom is Al. Hendren of Creston, .  were asked to submit new bids on the  revised plans, but the second tenders,  while lower, are still .too high. The original bid of $18,320 was reduced to $17,666,  and the other first bid of $17,985, was  cut to $16,485.  When these figures reached the board  they wired the department, asking that  Victoria make up the difference between  the $15,500 available, and either one of  the revised tenders. The Victoria reply  wast at-no such consideration would be  shown but suggested that some' further  revision of the revised plans be made to  get the cost down to the sum the trustees have voted to spend. Tuesday morning the beard wired Victoria that they  were agreeable to this and urging that all  possible speed be made to get in the third  set of bids so that actual construction  would not be, unnecessarily delayed.'  At the re gular meeting of the board on  Monday night, along with the new school  building matters, the' trustees had before them the resignations of Miss M.  Smith and O. Sostad of the high school  teaching" staff, and also the resignation of  Adam Robertson, vice-principal of the  public school.

Editor and Owner  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, JUNE 21  HOME   BREW  Village property owners who  can possibly make it should have  in mind paying their 1935 taxes  on or before the end of the month.  By doing ?o they will save a 10  per cent, penalty which is added  proved their product, or whether  the ever-pressing need for economy has wrought the change, it  is certainly fine to observe the effort that is being made to help  home industry. In the commerj  cial ma keting of butter's companion product, eggs, great advances have been made in protecting the purchasing public in the  matter of quality. If local firms  can give the same assurance in  connect on with the butter they  handle there should be no trouble  finding a ready sale right here in  Creston for every pound of quality dairy product manufactured.  We take it this is the intention of  the stores in question and it is to  be honed those supplying the butter will see to it that the high  standard is maintained.

In the old days  when substantial cheques came in  from liquor profits twice a year  financing thevillage was comparatively simple insofar as always  having quite a substantial credit  balance, but with thelirmor ^v-  enVie  ^hdrawn and    the  town  i J1 e"deavoring to finance on the  old reliable 12-mili tax rate early  payment of taxes is the more essential. And speaking of muni-  CIP i VUes- owners of police dogs  should not be forgetting the new  levy on this species of canine,  which goes to $10 at the first of  July.  the additional revenue made av  ailable for expenditure would help  some in bringing prosperity back.  Growers' Meeting  While their was quite a fair turnout  for the growers meeting on Saturday  night at MurrelPs hall, it was noted that  the great majority of those present were  from what is known as the in  dependent group, one interested party  informing that only a couple of orchard  ists from the other selling agencies being  present. A. F. Rudd of Wynndel was  chairman and the minutes were taken by  P. R. Truscott. The gathering was for  the purpose of discussing matters with  W. Keirn, the Boswell-Creston district  delegate to the Tree Fruit Board annual  meeting at Kelowna this week. Resolutions adop'ed by the meeting instruc-  Construction of the new packing and  shipping warehouse of Creston Products,  Limited, is?expected to be under way  early next week oh the site acquired by  the firm on Canyon road on the east  boundary of ths village���������almost opposite the Orchard Service station.  The building will be 65 s 40 feet,.and  will be erected on a lot 50 x 100 feet.  The directors bf the company have arranged construcrion so that there will be  entrance along the east side, as well as  at the end, and care is being taken to  arrange the interior layout so as to be  able to handle the incoming and outgoing  product to the best advantage. Construction material is being shipped in  from Fernie and is the entirelumber con*:  tent of the former McDonald warehouse  in that city.  A meeting of those identified with the  Independent Shippers, out of which has  come Creston Products, Limited, was  held in the Murrell Hall on Thursday  night, with F.H. Jackson in the chair,  and at which final reports of the Shippers' committees were presented and this  was followed by an open discussion of  the general policy and plan of operating  the new company.,  There are still a few details to complete in connection with the complete incorporation: of Greston Products, Limited,  and as soon as everything is in order the  chairman of the meeting was empowered  to call a meeting, of the shareholders of  the recently: organized company at which  the president, vice-president, secretary-  treasurer and manager will be elected.  When Creston Products. Limited, was  first broached it was planned to confine  operations to tree frui ts for this season,  at least, but it is doubtful if this policy  can be adhered to.. More than a few, of  the shareholders have soft fruits to move,  but with no warehouse as yet available  the handling of the strawberry offering has been entrusted to Ron.

Jack lowered his  voice. "Catch onto the old dame in  the  fireman's  shirt."  Nancy smiled, eyes following her  brothers. A white-haired woman  had just emerged from the station.  -She wore a broad-brimmed black felt  hat much like a man's, while her  long black cape being unfastened,  revealed  a middy blouse of flaming  ordered: "Roast beef sandwiches,  coffee, lemon meringue pie for three,  please;- and take your time."  Struck dumb by this breezy individual, Jack stifled a smile and  gave his sister a disconcerting nudge.  Their escort had flung her cape on a  nearby hook, and was a noticeable  figure in her broad felt - hat and  scarlet middy. People looked at her,  mildly amused; but there was nobility in her weatherbeaten countenance, and her smile was winning.  Lunch was quickly served, and  there being no privacy at the counter, was consumed in silence save for  a few questions regarding their  journey. As the train pulled away  from the station, both boy and. girl  turned to watch it, feeling a subtle,  regretful twinge, as if some good  friend were deserting them; and as  Nance resumed her mO'al their companion asked: "Sorry to see the  train depart without you?'*  "I suppose I am." replied the girl,  and added at this unexpected insight  of her mood: "You see, it makes me  feel as if the last bridge behind us  was burning. Everything's so different from Massachusetts; and not  knowing Cousin Columbine at all I'm  silly enough to be a little nervous."  The woman smiled one of her nice  smiles.  "You needn't be. I don't think  you'll find Columbine 1-Jelson hard to  live with."  "Have you known her long?"  asked Jack, hoping to secure a bit  of light on the character of their unseen relative.  "All my life. She was born at  Pine Ridge seventy-odd years ago in  a covered wagon."  "I know," said Nance. "It's one  of our family stories, that, and how  she happened to be named."  "Is it indeed!" The woman tipped  their waitress and glanced up quickly.    "Oh, there you are, Mark!"  The lunch room was almost empty  now, and as she slipped from the  high stool Nance saw a tall young  fellow in a. sombrero -which . he   re-  BABY'S  OWN  SOAP  Enjoyed 1st ftpm tfanno*  thru i*/ CorKK-fisn*.  ents.

Her feet   were   clad   in   stout,  black,  laced boots,  aboye  which an I moved as he  caught  sight of  their  inch or two of cotton, stocking met*  -a dark cloth skirt. An eccentric  figure, taken as-a whole. "And yet,"  Nance whispered as she passed them  hurriedly, "she has an air about her.  See -what I mean. Jack?"  "Yeah," he admitted, "but I bet  she's a crank of some sort, just the  same. You know, what they call a  ������������������a character.    You'd think���������"  Jack paused. The eccentric lady  had turned and was approaching  rapidly. "I'm looking for two young  people by the name of Nelson," she  said cripsly. "Have I found them?"  The question was as unique as the  woman; but in that moment her  somewhat mannish countenance was  lighted by a contagious smile. Jack  actually grinned, while Nance responded quickly: "It looks as if you  had! Did Cousin Columbine send  you to meet us?"  A quick nod answered her.  "I dare say you're hungry as two  bears,   and   so   am I.    Come in and  eat.     These   Eastern   trains   always  arrive at meal times."  Still talking, she led them toward  the station restaurant and motioned  to  seats at the counter.  ''No use in paying a dollar for a  dinner when you can get a hot roast  beef sandwich for fifty cents. Do  you like roast beef? In my opinion  there's nothing better. Do you want  coffee ? They say it's bad for people but I'vo drunk it every day for  more than fifty years and am still  able to get about." She smiled at  the waitress, and not giving the  young people   a   chance   to   answer,  HEALTH MEANS CHARM  AND HAPPINESS  Sparkling eye*  ana smilinn; lips  speak of health  und vitality.

Jack stole an amused glance at  .Nancy���������a glance she had no trouble  in interpreting. It said as plainly as  if he'd spoken: "Enter the forbidden  "boy friend! Take care, Sis!" It was  Jack's glance, not the sudden arrival  of this unexpected youth which made  her color rise, and, suddenly, the girl  was furious with her brother.  "This is Mark Adam, who is to  drive us up," explained the lady.  "Mark, these young folks are Nancy  and Jack Nelson. Where are-your  trunk checks, Jack? I presume  you've both brought luggage. And  Where's Matthew, Mark?"  The young man smiled, showing  strong, white teeth and a crinkle of  humor around the eyes.  "Glad to- know you." He stretched out a welcoming hand. "Matt's  outside on the truck���������too bashful to  come in and meet the���������er lady.  That's it" (as Jack produced the  checks). "You'll find the car parked  back of the station. I'll be there as  soon as I help Matt with the baggage."  "Mark's a good boy," observed  their new acquaintance as the driver  strode away. "He and his "brother  came down to the creamery to-day  (they run. a dairy ranch), so I roped  them in to drive us and get your  trunks. There isn't a better driver  In Pino Ridgo than Mark Adam,  Nancy, so you've no call to feel nervous going up tho pass. Hero we  are." They had left tlie station and  woro crossing a broad parking space.  "You're to rido with Mark, Jack.  You boys must get acquainted, and  I want a chance to get acquainted  with your slater."  Jack grinned as ho helped them to  their places. Ho longod to ask If  their antiquated cousin had given  thoso -Instructions in order to koop  Nance and "that good-looker" as fair  apart as possible. Knowing that  something of this sort was ln his  mind, Nancy throw htm a warning  glance, and said, as sho sat down beside tlio occontrlc lady whom sho was  beginning to like '"m-mewwly* "It's  queer, but I fool acquainted with you  already; and do you realize wo don't  ovon know your namo?"

Jack paused, one foot on  the running boards and stared at her;  while Nancy gasped: "But���������but you  can't be! Why Cousin Columbine's  a feeble old lady over seventy!"  "Over seventy, I'll admit," alleged  their companion, her eyes twinkling,  "but not so feeble as she led you to  believe. Stop staring at me, Jack.

Stop at the Cash and  Carry for a box of canned stuff,  Mark; and then head for home or  Matthew will get there first and not  know where to put the luggage."  "Can't Aurora tell him.?"  They had turned into a street that  faced the mountain, from which  Nancy could hardly take her eyes.  "Not  Aurora   Tubbs," Cousin Columbine was saying.    "She's so flustered at the idea of having-company  that like as not she'd have him  put  thos������ trunks in the bathroom.    We  have a bathroom, Nancy,   which  no  doubt  you'll   be    relieved   to   hear.  There's only one other in the village,  and that's in. a summer cottage belonging to a rich oil man from Oklahoma.   I went to the extravagance in  1914, just before the great war started over in Europe.    I remember the  date because  I was  christening tho  tub when the news came, and Aurora  (her sister married a German. Otto  Weismuller up at Cripple Creek and  as good a fellow as ever lived), came  rushing upstairs with the paper. She  actually pounded   on   the door, and  shouted:      'Miss    Columbine!      Miss  Columbine I    Don't bother   to   wash.  Tho Germans have started fighting.  Do you suppose our Otto will have  to go?" Aurora's apt to get flustered in an emergency, but I never saw  her so worked up."  This brought a laugh; and Mark  said dryly: "I didn't know we'd ever  had a christening in Pine Ridge, Miss  Columbine. Too bad that party was  interrupted by a war!"  "It wasn't," retorted the old lady.  "I called back: 'Keep still, Aurora.  This is the flrst tub bath I've had  since my mother washed me in a tin  dish pan with only a covered wagon  for privacy, and I wouldn't cut it  short if the whole Germany army  was on the lawn.' I could tell she  was mad by the way she thumped  downstairs, but she got over it "before I put on my clothes. Here  comes Matthew now. Slow down.  I'm going to stop him."  She signalled wildly, and a truck  drew up beside them, though it  seemed to Nancy that both vehicle and  the driver did so with reluctance.  The latter started to remove his hat,  found he had none on, and blushed  furiously. The truck emitted a sort  of groan.  "If you reach home first, Matthew,  just sit and wait till we get there,"  ordered Miss Columbine. '"You can  tell Aurora I said to give you a slice  of chocolate cake. And this is as  good a time as any to make you acquainted with my cousins, Nancy and  Jack Nelson. Don't drive recklessly  up the pass and lose those trunks  over the edge, will you? I dare say  they're valuable, and I don't trust  your driving as I do Mark's."  "Yes'm," responded Matthew nervously. "Pleased to meet you. I'll  be careful, Miss Columbine." j  He reached for his hat again,  found it still naissing, blushed redder,  and started the truck with such a  jolt that empty milk cans careened  drunkenly in the rear. Such confusion amused his brother, and a quiet  laugh escaped from Nancy. She said:  "He's really bashful, isn't he?"  "Born that way," responded Cousin  Columbine.  "And so. good looking!" observed  Nance.  They had stopped at a traffic signal, and their driver turned his head  a little to say over his shoulder:  "The family beauty."  A BARBER WHO HAD  RHEUMATISM  Tells How He Carried On  A barber who had been "a martyr  to rheumatism" writes:���������  "I have been a martyr to rheumatism for some ten years. For five  years I was so affected that it was  with the greatest difficulty I was  able to carry on my business. I may  say I am a barber by trade. After  having tried A numerous remedies, I  was finally advised to try Kruschen.  I am pleased to say that after having used Kruschen for some twelve  months, X am now freer from aches  and pains than I have been for some  ten years. In fact I consider I am  rid of rheumatism, thanks to Kruschen Salts."���������-W. M.  Two of the ingredients of Kruschen Salts are the most effectual  solvents of uric acid known _to medical science. They swiftly dull tho  sharp edges of the painful crystals,  then convert them into a harmless  solution. Other ingredients of these  Salts have a stimulating effect upon  the kidneys, and assist them to expel  the dissolved uratic needles through  the natural channel.  little Helps Fcr This Week  mmaoi-y  ������3-0������**~������  and Jack laughed outright; but  Cousin Columbine remarked severely: "If you expect me, or anybody in  Pine Ridge to contradict, you, young  man, you'll be disappointed. In. my  day it wasn't considered modest to  fish for compliments. The green  light's on, boy. Why don't you get  along?"  "Too crushed to move," he told  her, and proceeded to start the engine as quietly as its age allowed.  "I'll park somewhere on a side  street, Miss Columbine. There's no  space in front of the Cash and Carry;  but I'll walk over and get your box.  It's only half a block."  Eager to stretch his legs, Jack  offered assistance; and as thc boys  strode off the old lady remarked  critically: "Jack's thin, isn't he?  Grown too fast, most likely, and  been cooped up in school. A year in  the open will do wonders for him."  Nance thought, with sudden consternation: "A year! Does sho expect us to stay that long?" but managed to answer: "That's why Mother  let him come.

A look over the district reveals the  fact that 100 acres of strawberries are  now in bearing at Wynndel. The  British Sovereign is the most popular  variety, with VanSans a close second.  Raspberries, although only accounting  for twenty acres will keep the berry  pickers until at least the end of July. It  is unfortunate that the 24 below * zero  touch late in January damaged the canes  and the outlook,-in consequence, is for  only a 50 per cent, of normal crop.
