Highways were much in the limelight  at the August- session of the village commissioners Monday night at  which  all  councillors were present, and the chairman, F. H. Jackson, presiding.  The subject came to the fore in the:  corespondedca in which the department  of public works apologized for the admittedly poor condition of the North and  South highway bat said improvement  was out of the question while the Winlaw firm continued operating their saw- ;  mill three miles east^of town.  In reply to a request from the commissioners that the department rip up .  and repair the hard surfaee road on Canyon street from the postoffice to the  Presbyterian Church, the council was  informed that there was no appropriation  for this work, which is estimated to cost  $300-���������of which the village pays 25 per  cent.���������and that nothing could be done  this season. The clerk will again write  the district engineer asking for reconsid-'  eration and urging immedicte -action before more of the hard surface road machinery is shipped from here.  A letter was read from Nelson council  stating that the city had found calciuirdi  chloride most effective1 in abating the  dust nuisance, and Creston will buy a  ton of it f rom Nelsen f or immediate use  in the business section. It is a material  that is spread by shovel, about two  pounds to the square yard, which disolves  and disappears over night.  The inspector of numiripaiities inform-  estthe council that all C.P.R. right of  way, with the exception of the station*  said, possibly the section house, were  liable to taxation, and this was confirmed  by the provincial assessor at Nelson.  The latter will be written to seeking a  copy of the assessments on the properties interested, and when it arrives the  village will make a similar levy.  Chairman F. H. Jackson reported  fully on his trip to Victoria on water  maters. He had been able to have but  a very brief interview with the minister  of lands, who had requested that the  whole situation be presented him by  letter. This has been done -and a copy  of the letter was read for the approval of  the other commissioners.  There were three bids for the work of  replanking and otherwise repairing Park  Road bridge. W. Morrow put in a tender at $750 for the work complete, which  was accepted. J. Strobii asked $995 with  some extras for caps and footing, while  Hendren & Son bid $1180 for the work  with extra charge for caps and footing.  Mr. Morrow will be asked to have the  work completed in advance of the fall  fair, September 26th, or otherwise to de-  fere starting until after the exhibition.  Property owners on Wilson Avenue  complain of a nuisance caused by the  plugging up of the water pipe from the  station residence which finds an outlet  further along the street. A letter Is to  be sent to W. B. Martin, local agent,  asking that the matter be remedied immediately.  Accounts for the month totalling $203  were ordered paid and it was agreed that  the annual installment of $500 and interest on the purchase of the fail fair groundB  should be mads at once. This males a  total of $1000 paid on a purchase price  of $2500.  In connection with tho electric light  Chairman Jackson aaid that II. S. Amon,  who held the 20-year franchise, was expecting to close o deal with the Canadian  Utilities Company of Calgary to assume  thia obligation. It is now stated that  Boundary Creek has befin abandoned an  a Rourco of power m.pp!y, but that a  Delscl engine will ba utilized until such  time as power from the Goat River  Canyon ia available. Tho chairman is of  tho opinion that Mr. Amon will make  good on his agreement, but also insists  that unleaa there ia considerable activity  in tho matter of getting tho light, no extension on the agreement would be given.

CRESTON,   B.    a  Dq f&-0t ft������ tempteA *gr fia&jpriee  Culpatle  Negligence  It is becoming, to an ever increasing extent, one of the responsibilities  of governmental authorities to protect people against themselves, not only  for their own sake, but for the sake of others whom, in one way or  another, the first named endanger. One of the latest developments in this  direction is joint action by the Dominion, Provincial and municipal  authorities to lessen the possibility of accidents at level railway crossing's.  Such crossings are always dangerous, but with the advent of the motor car,  and the speed mania of reckless drivers, the death and accident toll has  mounted alarmingly.  In nearly one thousand accident cases reported to the Board of Railway  Commissioners during the past year, there was danger of loss of life or  damage to property because of negligence at highwaj^-railway level  crossings. Of these accidents S69 were reported on the lines of the  Canadian. National system, and railway officials have carefully classified  these. It was found that more than forty per cent, of the accidents were  caused by some form of downright negligence on the part of the motorist.  Of the huge total of accidents, no less than 325 were cases where  vehicles broke or damaged crossing gates which had been lowered; 23 where  drivers ignored" signals and drove right through gates; 36 cases where  drivers passed right ahead under gates which were in process of "being  raised or lowered; seven cases of driving on to crossings opposite gate  ���������which had heen lowered; five cases where drivers under the inixuenee of  liquor crashed into gates; while three accidents were due to pedestrians  climbing' over or under gates.  In other words, all these accidents were the result of a wilful  ���������disregard of the means of protection provided toy the railways. Sut in their  insane desire for speed motorists were responsible for a large number of  accidents which were the outcome of what is classified as "inexplicable  neglig*ence." Some of the almost incredible performances of careless and  reckless drivers are listed as follows:  Fourty-four motorists drove into the sides of moving trains.  Thirty-eight drove into the sides of standing trains.  One driver parked on the railway lines .while he had a sleep.  One tried to drive between two railway cars while switching. He was  unsuccessful.  Twelve parked on or too near the railway tracks.  Seven went for  a drive along  the  railway tracks���������they  met  express  trains.  One driver left his car on the tracks to search for something he had  dropped on the road. When Tie returned there was nothing left of the car.  One driver stopped on the railway tracks to adjust his load.  Eleven found too late that their brakes needed relining.  This amazing record shows    that    not    only   are    many    accidents    ac  crossings due to sheer negligence and in no way excusable, but they also  serve to Indicate the nature of the problem of "educating" drivers of motor  cars guilty  of  such  insane  conduct.       Warning signs  and even physical  barriers such  as crossing gates are  no sure guarantee against accidents  due to such carelessness.  There appears to be but two methods of putting an end to such  accidents. One is to do away with-level highway-crossings altogther by  carrying highways either over, or -under the railway tracks, This is a highly  expensive business, and is not possible in a country of such immense  distances as Canada, It can be cbone at crossings in all urban, centres and  at points where traffic is exceptionally heavy, and to this task the' Federal  Government through the Board of Railway Commissioners, working in  co-operation with Provincial Governments and municipal authorities, has  decided to bend its energies, the cost of obliterating these level crossings  being distributed among these several governmental bodies.  The second course is to licence all drivers of motor cars and to make  it an offence for anyone to drive a car unless he or she has such a licence,  and to immediately cancel the licence of any person found guilty of  negligence, carelessness, and recklessness in handling a car. Such persons  - are a danger not only to themselves, but to the public at large, and in the  public interest should be denied thc right to drive such a potential engine  of destruction on the public highways as the modern powerful nu)tor car.  Hew Midget Auto  T     i  ii    ii i    m '  Will   Be   Sold trough  Mail   Order  Houses For $200  The JS&w York Times says negotiations are. under way for the large  scale production of the new "baby"  auto which would be sold through  the mail order houses for $200.  The ear is the invention of James  13. Martin, of Garden City, N.Y.  The feature .of the car ia that it  has no axles in the usual sense of the  word, each wheel being independently mounted In the reinforced body.  Rubber "'aviator cord" is used in the  suspension of each wheel instead of  a spring.  The hew car has a wheel base of  sixty inches, compared with 102%  inch wheel base of the smallest car  now being produced in the United  States. Mr. Martin 'said his invention  will, do 50 miles on a gallon of gasoline.  Ho declared he planned to have it  shipped in a weather proof packing  case with a hinged door which may  be us.ed as a garage.

And often,  unfortunately, but little sympathy iai  shown   for   the   sufferer,   from   the  mistaken notion that the nerves can  be controlled.     Men and women with  nerves out of gear often become irritable ahd are blamed for ill temper,  when  it is  not their  fault.       Their  poor health is the cause.      The tired,  over-busy wife   and   mother,   -whose  household cares? have worn her thin,  the    breadwinner . whose    anxieties  haye worried him until he  is really  ill,   are   among   the   nerve   sufferers  who become run-down. Their nerves,  like all bodily organs, need rich, red  blood.   In all such cases the best and  simplest treatment is a course of Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills, which enriches  the blood and builds up the nervous  system and brings good health  and  cheerfulness.      Mrs. M. Cross, Richmond, Que.,  tells how this medicine  ended her    nervous    troubles.       She  says:���������"I  have  suffered    from    nervousness   and  dizzy   spells,   and   the  hundred: and  one things    which    in  such a condition make life a misery.  The first thing I found to help me  was Dr. Williams' "Fink Pills.    Under  the use of this medicine I found my  nerves grew steadier ,the dizzy spells  grew less frequent,  and    I    became  brighter and more cheerful.    I took  the  pills   for   some   time   and   found  that  they enrich the blood, build up  the nerves  and  are  a  fine  medicine  for both old and young."  You can get these pills through  any medicine dealer or by mail at  50c. a box from The Dr. Williams'  Medicine  Co., Brockville, Ont.

A Remedy For Earache.-^-To have  the earache Is to endure torture,.  The ear is a delicate organ ahd few  care tb deal with it, considering it'  work for a doctor. Dr. Thomas'  Eclectric Oil offers a simple remedy.  A few drops upon a piece of lint or  medicated cotton and- placed in the  ear will do much in relieving pain.

At  Winnipeg last week, on the occasion of the 48th biennial synod of  Rupert's Land, one Canon Heeney  was quite plain spoken on money  matters, informing the august  assemblage that the Church of  England in those parts "was  allowing the clergyman to go  badly dressed, their wives and  children poorly clothed and half-  starved, in order that the laymen  may be fed with the gospel of  Jesus Christ." Now we know  why the minister's son���������and but a  handful of other people's sons all  across Canada���������do not take kindly to entering holy orders.  view of the large crop, it is doubtful if anything that could have  been done this season would have  saved the berry growers of British  Columbia from low prices. It is  reasonable to assume, however,  that they'would have been some  better off had they been given the  steadying influence of the committee of direction which functioned  last season but failed to accomplish much owing to adverse weather conditions. A control committee would have cut out consignments which blew the prairie  market up in short order this season. It. is a safe bet that next  season the majority of berry producers will be willing to re-establish orderly marketing."

Waiters were hurriedly piling chairs  on tables, scrub-women appeared^  with buckets and mops, lights were  dimmed.  In a: tiny dressls."* roomy '' at thfj  back of the building, Gface, the cigarette girl, had taken the tray from  her shoulder, balanced her accounts  for the evening and slipped into simple and inexpensive blue serge dress.  Generally Grace had a good natural color, hut this morning the f pale  sunlight, slanting through her dressing roam windowT ^revealed her face  as dead white. So she put on more  rouge than usual, to accentuate the  brave front she felt she must assume.  Yet as she pulled her tight-fittng  little blue yelbur.hat down over her  dark hair and slipped into her coat,  these words were beating in her  brain: -  '   "He's' In  love wih  Mk>liy���������-and he  ���������means toy marry her!"   -  Over and' over again the words  sounded,;; like * ,a; dirge. And they  seemed to .take on rhythm, the  rhythm -of ''Always," the love bdllad  Al had sung to Molly. -     ,  Grace heard footsteps in the hallway and turned to confront Blackie  Joe. There was good old stout  Blackie, gazing at her "with kindly  eyes. Finally he said:  'l' "Hbw do you feel, Uttle one?"  "Oh���������so-so."  She couldn't say she felt splendid;  she didn't have the strength to say  it,, iand she knew Blackie wouidiTt  believe it.

I know  how iron feel toward Al;" don't you  think I've been watching you and  sympathizing with you? But you're  beating your head against a stone  wall."  "I know it."

So long."  ?So long.';' Blackie looked after  the saggihgflittl0 figure that, waa  usually so lithey- and'y vibrant ���������: with  vitality. He shook his head sadly.  Grace, passing through the serpentine corridors,- heard"y. voices-r���������the  voices of Al and Molly.. They were  talking in Molly's dressing room. She  did not mean to iisten, yet she  stopped as slie heard Al say enthusiastically :... ;;^.;y yjyff-:  I     '*We  can'ty; lose,  Molly.       Marcus  will- sign :us up tomorrow and we'll  move over to the bright lights and  the big money: Then we'll get married. That will be the happiest day  of ymy life, darling!"  "Yes," came Molly's -eager voice,  "���������we'll; get married and we'll go to  the very top. Al, I've always known  you had it in you. When I heard you  sing tonight"I was sitre!"  The faint flicker of an unbelieving  smile crossed Grace's face, but she  made no sound. Then  came Molly's  voice again:.   . .. ~y'  "We'll leave this dirty hole cold���������  right away���������^tomorrow."  At = this, Al paused. Then he  remonstrated.  , ?"So soon, MOlly ? That wouldn't  be fair ' to Blackiej. He's done a lot  fori you and me. It's true I thought  off quitting tonight, but that was because I believed you didn't love rae.  And I couldn't stand the thought of  staying. Now itii different; let's give  Blackie some notice, be square with  him. the way he's been with us. After  allj he's had faith in both of us."  "Oh, all right," agreed Molly  grudgingly, -'but I hater-this tough  place."  Suddenly Grace ran in the other  direction,' through the corridors,  across the deserted cabaret room,  down the dark, shabby steps to the  sunlit street. Her' heart was thumping madly and she wanted to get aa  far as possible from their voices. Her  woman's intuition made her fgar for  .Al's future with Molly; something in  the girl's insensitive attitude and  words horrified her.  She hurried' along the narrow  streets toward, her lodging house in  the Village, several blocks away. Heir  thoughts were full of Al and her  love for him; she realized that if  she didn't reach home quickly she  ���������������vould burst out crying-on* the street.  When she stood in her bleak,  shabby, lodging house bedroom, and  confronted her reflection in a mirror,  she cried passionately:  "That girl's no good! She'll never  make him happy! And, oh, I love  him so! I would have worked so hard  to help him!'  (To Be Continued.)
