Provided Creston votes "wet'* on a  beer parlor plebiscite which  the village  council wil 7 sponsor at the earliest possible date, "Creston is guaranteed a ?new  ^821,000 fully modern and commodious  hotel, to be built at the corner of Canyon  Street and Creston Avenue. John Shean  of    Lumbertcn   is  the   backer.; of the  hotel project and he has posted a bond  of $500 to build the hotel, provided the  council takes the vote and is favorable  This was the  outstanding feature of  the August session of the village council  Monday   night at which Reeve F. H.  Jackson   presided   and Councillors   A.  Comfort and Chas. Murrell were present.  The hotel agreement was tentatively entered into at a special meeting of the  council on July 29th, and was confirmed  at the regular? me ting this week.   At  this special   meeting   a resolution was  drafted and submitted at* the meeting of  the Kootenay 7 Municipalities' Association at Nelson' last week- by the reeve,  who reported it had been approved  with  some minor changes in the phraseology.  The resolution asked that the   Liquor  Act he changed so that the municipalities and not the Liouor Control Board  would have authority to say how many  licenses should be issued in any municipally governed district.  In connection with the proposed hotel  Chas. Moore, architect, and J G. Bell,  who    is acting    for Mr.   Shean,  were  present to urge all possible speed so that  construction could get under way while  the weather was good.    Mr.  Bell sub  mitted the plans which showed a two-  story-and-basement structure of pleasing  design.   It will have 92 feet frontage on  Canyon and 72 feet on Creston  Avenue.  It will have 20 bedrooms, most of jthem  with baths.    There,will be a diningroom;  testaurant, barber shop j ? rotunda biT the  -main floor, with attract! veT entrance and  front verandah. . The ��������� basement will, be  largely for sample rooms.    It will be of  brick or stucco, and the cost will not be  less than $21,000.    Messrs.   Moore and  tfeii were pressed to fully complete every  thing that has to havejj-te approval  of  .  the authorities at Victoria and to submit it for Liquor Control Board o.k.. so  that no time will be  lost in  authorizing  the plebiscite when  the petition  arrives.  On July 23rd the council had  another  special session at which Mr. Oswald, deputy provincial fire marshall was present,  and fire protection matters were gone into.   Mr. Oswald had asked for a map of  the waterworks system.   Following.up  this matter letters had   been written to  the villages of Mission and Smithers to  find out how they handled the fir ��������� protection situation, and a motion was passed authorizing a conference with Goat  Mountain Waterworks Company to discuss hydrant installation  and mainten-  . ��������� ance. ������������������  There was a non-commital. letter from  the deputy postmaster general at Ottawa  as to just where Creston's new poatoffice  was at. It gave a ratherfaint impression  that the plans were being rushed and  tenders would be called shortly .The  "rush" feature to the plans, however,  was not substantiated in a letter from the  architect, J. Carrie, of Nelson. The  council want him, on his next visit to  Creston, to give an estimate on the possible cost of rebuilding Park pavilion to  better accomodate indoor sportR, dances,  etc. The best Mr. Carrie could advise  whs that he would be here possibly in a  ���������   month..":?- .' .

A definite and very businesslike attempt to curb the pp ing floods of Goat  River along the,K?y.. highway just south  of the village is now under way with the  construction of a brand new bridge over  the main river channel, and the replacing  of the 200-foot King truss structure, a  short distance south with a fill. A dredge  will also be employed to more definitely  define the main channel for some distance both up anddown stream at the  new bridge.     ?    Y  Work on the new structure is nicely  under way, in charge of Paul McMaster,  bridge foreman, of the public works department, who has a crew of about 20  men on' the job,?some o- whom are in  camp at the" bridge site, with A. E.  French in-charge?df the cookhouse.  The new bridgeTwill be a Howe truss  structure and will have one span  of 180  feet.   It will have two approaches of 25  feet each, the one on the north end sloping up gradually from the highway, but  on the south side there will.be about 200  feet of fill to replace the old  br'dge  at  that   point.   The? bridge   still   further  south will not be ^replaced as the only  time it suffers ia when  the  overflow is  very serious? 'During the past hig^ water season no flood-damage threatened it.  The Howe truss structure will be of  wood and  will, require 110,000 feet of  heavy   lumber   and  timbers."   Tnis  is  being supplied by CO. Rodgers who is  bringing  in  about 65,000 feet of creo-  soted timber for thp understructure. The  30-foot piling to be used is alsocreosoted.  A one-ton   pile driver  with  gas engine  power is being used putting down the  piling.    A temporary^ bridge on   the upstream side has been completed to take  care of the traffic during construction of  the span. S^' "       -  About" $12,000 will.be spent on the  bridge' and river control work, the latter  estimated at .about $3000." Control work  will extend about 900 feet on both sides  of the new bridge and is counted upon to  keep the Goat in the one channel once  the dredging is completed. With this  job under way, along with hard, surface  road work and the erection of the elevator and four-room school employ ent is  being provided for almost" every available workman.

U\. -rap" yE&zRMr* ^  njoy  Best Tea  Nature Upsets Man's Plans  Harvest time ln Western Canada has again arrived and for tbe next  few weeks great activity, from, early morning: till late at night, will be the  rule right across tliese western plains. Following several years of short  crops, and in many sections complete failure of crops due to drouth, and  consequently lack of resources on the part of tens of thousands of farmers  to seed and harvest a crop this year, governments and municipalities, banks,  mortgage, loan and implement companies made provision whereby farmers  were supplied with feed, fodder, seed, gas and oil, machinery repairs, hinder  twine, and other essentials to the seeding and harvesting of a crop. Each  individual farmer may not have received all that he desired, but, speaking  broadly, the needs of the situation were fairly well met.  Taking the country as a whole, and excepting certain more or less restricted areas, copious rains have fallen throughout the growing season,  following a somewhat late seeding. "Up to a few weeks ago prospects for  at least a normal, if not above normal crop, were bright. Grasshoppers and  cut worms which -were at first threatened, seemed to have been brought  under control, weather conditions prevailing being a main factor to that  end. Prospects for a fairly large and satisfactory crop were excellent, and  estimates of as high as 350,000,000 to 400,000,000 bushels of wheat were  commonly made.  But last month the bright picture became clouded as rust made its  appearance in the wheat fields, coming in from the southeast and spreading  rapidly "westward and northward. Governments, financial concerns, economic planners, farmers, every human agency is powerless against this development of Nature. For years technical agricultural experts, chemists  and scientists employed by Governments have been seeking a means to offset the ravages of rust and to develop a strain of wheat that will be rust-  resistant. But Nature this year has defied all their efforts, and it is now  self-evident that Western farmers will sustain heavy losses through the  effect of rusted crops.  Estimates of the loss through rust already run as high as 100,000,000  bushels of wheat; some estimates are even higher, and, of course, the actual  loss will not be known until the harvest is completed. On many farms, even  in some municipalities, no wheat will be harvested.  '"** There is no desire to be alarmist in reviewing this situation. Notwithstanding the inroads by rust upon what a few weeks ago was, one of the  most promising crops in many years, the general agricultural situation is  decidedly better than for some years past. Grass again covers great areas  of the "West which recently presented a desert-like appearance. Feed and  fodder formerly lacking is now available. Garden crops are generally reported to be good. But the big cash crop of the West, -wheat, will be  smaller and of decidedly less value than was hoped for and expected a few  weeks ago.  The whole country must face this unfortunate fact and meet it to the  best of its ability. No human agency can be held responsible for the losses  sustained. It was beyond Governments, corporations, and individuals alike  to prevent. All will be included in the losses sustained���������Governments  through loss of revenues and the necessity of providing assistance where it  was not anticipated it would be necessary; railways through loss of traffic  and therefore loss of revenues; railway, elevator, machine .company and  other employees, including farm laborers, through less employment; financial concerns to whom money for advances made is owing but which cannot be p#ald as fully as was anticipated; farmers more especially because  the returns for their year's labor are swept away or very largely reduced.  In a word, no existing political, financial, economic, or social system is responsible for the heavy losses the country is sustaining. Nature and conditions developed under its inscrutable- laws are the sole causei  But Nature is not always unkind.   In the long run it always strikes a  fair balance   Its laws operate not for one year, but throughout eycle*rof  years.   Man must not only recognize this truth, but govern himself accordingly.   There is no good end to be served by becoming despondent and discouraged.   There is only one courageous thing to do, and that is to face the  situation and the problems presented.    Losses to-day will be compensated  for by gains to-morrow.   That is a law of Nature.   Therefore, the future  should be faced with courage and determination.   Life is a battle and must  be fought.   Man could not exist on "flowery beds of ease."   If he is to succeed and reach the topmost rungs of the ladder of life, he must exert himself and climb, battling against all obstructions in his way, eradicating- the,  weeds that cling and clog his steps, removing weaknesses and strengthening  the ladder.   Climbing he will become stronger; crottching at the foot of tho  ladder, waiting for somebody to carry him up, he will become flabby and  weak and eventually succumb.    Courage and   determination,   which   will  bring confidence, is essential to success in any walk of life.    And In the  long run Nature will not bar the way, rather it will be found helpful and  co-operating.  Trykg For New Record  aW    " "i   "*- b������8������b������^*b������  Speed Of 800 M.P.H.

Of Jubilee  The river Thames, so far as it runs  through the metropolitan district of  London, Is divided into a series of  sections called "reaches." There is  Chelsea Reach, Blackwall Reach,  Greenwich. Reach, Gallions Reach  and so on, but one section appeared  to have escaped being named, a deficiency which has just been rectified  In honor of the King's silver Jubilee.  This is the stretch between the Pool  of London, so familiar in pictures,  just west of the Tower Bridge, and  Lambeth Reach, which terminates on  the Houses of Parliament side of  Westminster Bridge. Th������ Port of  London Authority has decided to call  it "The King's Reach."  Once upon a time the Thames was  more used as the King's Highway  than the road itself "between Westminster and the Tower of London,  the royal residence, St. James Palace  being at one end while His Majesty  often had business at the Tower-  sometimes very dirty business at  that. So that "The King's Reach" is  an appropriate name for this important waterway. It includes London Bridge, Southwark Bridge,  Blackfriars Bridge, Waterloo Bridge  to Westminster, and on the shoreline are such noted places as Billingsgate "Fish Market, Cannon street  railway station, St. Paul's Cathedral,  Victoria Embankment, including  Cleopatra's Needle, Somerset House,  where wills are filed and all the  births, deaths and marriages in England are registered, Charing Cross  and Scotland Yard.  So if $011 should happen to be in  Old London and lean over the parapet somewhere between the Houses  of Parliament and the Tower looking  at what John Burns calls "liquid  history," that part is "The King's  Reach."���������St. Thomas Times-Journal.

Gave Address On Slang  Professor   Of   English    Says   It   Is  Language On Trial  At  the   spring  meeting  of  Yorkshire Dialect Society held at Wilber-  force House, J. H. Gratton, Professor  of English language and philology in  Liverpool University gave an address  on slang, cant, and jargon. He said  It was impossible to acquire a thorough "knowledge of English withcut  being familiar with slang and vulgarisms.    Slang was language on trial,  but no word or expression had any  real meaning outside its context and  the situation  ln  which   it  occurred.  Cant was originally the secret language of the, under-world, and he defined jargon as language unintelligible out of Its proper sphere.    Consideration would show tlio absurdity  of  condemning  slang unheard.    Attempts had boen made to classify it  according to occupations,    What wo  really  wanted was moro knowledge  about tho passing of sectional slang  into general fllang.

VVYYt  Winnipeg.���������Canadians in search of  overseas trade opportunities would  do well to search out South Africa,  according to D. de Waal Meyer,  South African trade commissioner  to Canada.  In 1933, Mr. Meyer said, Canada  sold the Union of South Africa goods  to the value of $5,700,000. In 1934,  sales mounted to $12,600,000, topping  by $500,000 the previous "high",  reached in the boom year of 1929.  "Canada's sales to my country  have gone beyond the good times  level," the trade commissioner said.  "That is because South Africa's pur^  chasing. power has increased enormously. Not only has the value of  South Africa's Canadian purchases  increased, but the percentage of our  purchases.of Canadian goods also has  advanced. Thus, in 1933, 2.5 per cent,  of our total purchases came from  Canada. In 1934, the -percentage  had mounted to 3.6 per cent.  "Xt is worth while for Canadians  to give special attention to South  Africa. That is one of the most  buoyant countries in the world because of its prosperity," he added.  The Increase of Canada's trade  with South Africa was attributed by  Mr. Meyer in part to the Ottawa  agreements, and in part to the visit  to that country of Canadian delegations, such as one that attended an  educational conference in South  Africa, and another of British Columbia lumber interests.  On the reverse side of the picture  is the fact that Canada's trade balance is four to one in her favor, Mr.  Meyer said, South Africa selling to'  Canada in 1934 goods to the value  only of $3,600,000, of which corn and  sugar made up about 85 per cent.

At present there are between 15  and 18 children of school age in the  territory, and there ss no school of  any kind. V,  A public meeting was held in the  area on July 27 at which recommendations were drafted r and forwarded to Hon. J. W. Estey, minister  .of education.  Stumbling block to the establishment of a school is the fact that  there is no assessable property in  the area, and thus there could be no  taxes raised for school purposes.  This may be overcome by the department making a grant to the district to be used for school purposes.  No decision has been reached by  the department.

Stories To Be Investigated  -���������MMaaMaaBB^M*--  ���������/  ?  Search    Started     For     Mysterious  Tropical Valleys In British  Columbia  Indian stories from the North that  tropical valleys, filled with luxurious  vegetation, exist to northern British  Columbia, green oases in the midst  of snow-capped mountains, will bo  investigated by Dr. Charles Camseil,  Deputy Minister of Mines. He left  Ottawa for the West to begin a 10,-  000-xnlle exploration trip designed  primarily to gather information on  one of the last remaining blank spots  on maps of northwestern Canada.  For years tales have reached Ottawa  that tropical valleys exist in an unmapped area along the Yukon-  Northwest Territory boundary. Several have been found, fed by hot  springs, with tropical plants growing  in profusion. There have been tales  of prehistoric animals surviving in  the valleys, but they have remained  tales.  As early as 1898, during the Klondike gold rush, Dr. Camseil camped  In one of the hot spring valleys further south, and more recently Dr.  and Mrs, N. J. Henry of Philadelphia found one, perhaps the same  one. But the valleys remain mysteries, their extent, whether they are  free from snow during the long winters and their flora and biology. Indians have referred to the valleys for  years, but have steered clear of them  through superstition.  Dr. Camseil will explore the area  from the air ia a plane piloted by  C. H*. "Punch" Dicklns, a veteran  Northern flier. He will be accompanied by A. J>. McLean, superintendent of Airways, Department of  National Defence, and W. H. Sutherland, photographer. The blind spot  contains 25,000 square miles through  which white men never have travelled.  Giant Cobras Aid Science  Veneer. To .' Be   "Used - In  Serum As  Substitute For Narcotics  Two cubic centimetres of venoih,  enough poison -to -kill 140 men, have  been extracted from an eleven-foot  king cobra in a squash racquets  court of the Staten Island Club, 287  St. Mark's Place, St. George. Four  strong znen, headed by Carol Stryker,  director of the Staten Island Zoological Society, the owners of the  reptile, were required to perform the  operation.  Elaborate precautions were taken  lest the snake bite some one. Mr.  Stryker and his assistants were  equipped with twelve peculiar-looking tatruments to control the reptile's movements. There were forked  sticks, nooses, hoods, and hooks. A  slxteen-guage shotgun, both barrels  loaded, was placed against the wall  of the court.  After the venom had been extracted it was turned over to Dr.  Samuel M. Peck, chief, of the der-  matological staff of Mount Sinai  Hospital, Fifth Avenue and 100th  street. New York. Dr. Peck, for the  last few years, has been perfecting  a serum compounded from cobra  venom which is expected ot replace  narcotics for alleviating severe pain.  Dr. Peck said that his experiments  had been hampered considerably by  lack of sufficient venom, and that the  liquid extracted would be sufficient  for 1,500 treatments. It requires almost three weeks to transform the  venom into a usable serum. HO said  that large quantities of the venom  would be needed for laboratory tests  before the active principle, or the  ingredient which determines the  therapeutic value of the serum,  could be established.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON  AUGUST 18  MARTHA   (A HOME-JIAKEE)  ., Golden text: Jesus loved Martha  and her sister, and Lazarus. John  11:6. ">.....  Lesson: Luke 10:38-42; John 11:  1-44.  Devotional reading: Psalm 116:1-8*  Explanations And Comments  The Ministry of Martha in the  Home, Luke 10:38-42. During his  public ministry Jesus was homeless.  "The foxes have holes and the birds  of the air have nests," he once said;  "but the Son of man hath not where  to lay his head." There was one  house, however, where he was a frequent and much loved Guest. There  he was sure of a welcome, and when  sore bested he often sought it for  rest -Mid sympathetic understanding.  Two sisters arid a brother composed  the household, but the house seems  to have been Martha's, for verse 38  of our text says that "a certain  woman named Martha received him  into her house."  Martha was probably preparing tbo  elaborate a meal for her Lord, one of  too many dishes. Moffatt has suggested for Jesus' words, "but one dish  is needful." She was greatly  troubled, and complained to Jesus  that her sister was not helping in  the work. Tenderly Jesus repeated  her name, "Martha, Martha," rind  gently chided her; "thou art anxious  and troubled about many things; but  one thing is needful"; and then commended Mary for having chosen the  good part in sitting at his feet and  listening to his words. He did not  wish his visit to turn Martha into a  drudge. He desired a simple meal  that would allow her, too, to minister to his spirit's need for sympathetic listening to his words.  When Martha Chose the Good  Part. The next time we hear of  Jesus' going to the Bethany home is  after the death of Lazarus. When  Lazarus fell sick Martha had sent  ���������word to Jesus, believing that if he  only knew of their need his love  would bring him to them. When  the sisters learned of his approach, Mary sat still in the house  with the friends who had come to  console  them,  but  Martha hastened  "Lord,   if   thou  ' SALTS  ,(3y Gordon H.

For  example,  if  sodium,  hydroxide   is   treated   with    hydrochloric acid, sodium chloride or common salt and water are formed.    A.  chemical reaction   of   this   kind   is  known as neutralization, because the-  product   (salt)   does  not  have   any  effect  upon  indicators  such  as   litmus.   In other words, a water solution of common salt  is  neutral   toward  Indicators.   Hundreds of salts,  may be prepared by treating various-  bases with acid*?.

She took his words  to mean a far distant, future resurrection���������"I know that he shall rise  in the resurrection at the last day,"  she said, and. seems to have found  little comfort in that bellief, for it  was belief, not faith, that she expressed. Belief is a matter of the  intellect; faith a matter of the heart  and life.  Martha's two mistakes were that  she was looking too far ahead and  too far afield. She was looking far  into the future; and Jesus comforted  her by speaking of the present. "She  was thinking of what concerned the  indiscriminate mass of men, the  world's millions everywhere, instead  of looking at what was close at hand  and concerned herself. Looking only  at the general resurrection of all the  dead, she missed the very meaning of  her Master's words, 'Thy brother  shall rise again'."  Very comforting are the words  that Jesus then spoke to her: "I am  the resurrection and the life": over  the eternal life within the living who  believe on me, death shall have no  dominion. "Believest thou this ?" Jesus  questioned, and Martha replied, "Yea,  Lord; I have believed that thou art  the Christ, the Son of God even he  that' cometh into the world."

SYNOPSIS  Nancy Nelson is a sub-deh, a gay,  "irresponsible girl of nineteen, with no  -care beyond  the  choice of her cos-  "turne for her coming'-out party. Suddenly, in the market crash, her in-  ���������dulgent father loses all he had, and  his -family is faced with the necessity of a   simpler method of living.  At this juncture a letter is received  from an eccentric relative In Colorado, who offers the girl a home on  what seems to be impossible conditions. ^  After much consideration Cousin  Columbine's offer Is accepted, and.  Nancy and Jack arrive at Pine Ridge.  They are met-at- the railway station  by Columbine Nelson, who in turn  Introduces Mark and Matthew  Adams, two neighbors of Aunt Columbine, and the party set out for  Pine Ridge, which village causes dismay to both Nancy and Jack because  of its dilapidated appearance and  general look of poverty. Nancy and  Jack are shown to the rooms they  are to occupy, and both the young  people consider the furniture and  decorations hateful and, contrasting  the. present quarters with,their luxurious home in Boston, wonder if  they can endure the change for any  length _ pf time. Aunt- -Columbine  tells why she wrote the letter to  them, 7 and relates some of her early  experiences at Pine Ridge of hostile  Indians arid forest fires, of her  father's built for gold, and of her  mother's splendid spirit, but fraii  "body, which could not n.^dure the  strain of pioneer life. . ?'.777''?!\  . Nancy set out one afternoon to  climb to the top of a hill so as to  obtain a view of the surrounding  landscape and misses the path Aurora  Tubbs had told her to follow. A truck  comes along the road, driven by Matthew Adams, and she asks him which  way to go. They ascend the hill,  look around, and then go on to  Cousin Columbine's. There Mark  Adam tells Nancy that his brother  Luke has broken his leg, and that  Jack Nelson has been hired to help  out while Luke's leg gets better.

Nancy wondered how it  would seem to be fifty-six���������shuddered���������and then realized that Dad  didn't seem old at all, and often acted younger than she did! This was a  cheering thought, and the girl kicked  off her quilt and ran to close the  windows. :.-.  j.(,,,-  At any rate, it was a glorious day,  and all that snow had vanished,  sinking into the ground and leaving  everything quite dry again.

She  was going to the Springs with Mrs.  Adam (whom she had not yet met),  to purchase the sport hose as well  as some ten cent "jqkes" for Christmas: something to make laughter at  the dinner table, though Cousin Columbine assured that there would be  laughter at the Adam dinner table,  jokes or no jokes.
