 ..���������.Wf"\  <..  /)������������������������-  :/  Kettle Valley Orchardist  17TH YEAR���������No   8  GRAND.FORKS   B. 0., FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  Unionist Government  Endorsed by Big Majority  With Exception of Quebec, the Government Makes Almost a Clean Sweep of  the Entire Country.  (v���������.  ��������� -The returns from'tha general election on Monday indicate that the Unionist-government will have a majority of  between fifty and sixty members. Even-the-most optimistic  supporters of the" Unionists were surprised at the results,  which may be much greater when the returns from the voting of the soldiers is reported, which, it is believed, will affect the .results in some close constituencies where Laurier  Liberals have been elected on the face of the returns by small  majorities, and elect Unionist candidates.  The results which were definite Tuesday night gave the  Unionists 138 and Liberals 91, a majority for the government  of 47, with a possibility of 60 majority when the election results are all.in.    ���������   '  The provinces east of the Ottawa river more than veri-  " tied the prediction of those who believed thas the Unionists  and Liberals would break.about even, but Ontario and the  ,west proved & surprise.; The opposition counted on at least  twenty _ seats 'from.. Ontario and got only.half that number.  ��������� Liberals;thought they, could" count on not less than fifteen  seats hi the west, but only two "supporters of Sir ��������� Wilfrid  JLaurier were elected.',. Two or three,.seats-.in- northern-. Alberta-may still.be in doubt because of the large number of  country polls still-to hear from, but there is little to indicate  the possibility of more than three or four oppositionists being-elected in western Canada. ��������� In Ontario 72 of the 82 constituencies have been won by the Unionists, and all the ministers have been elected by large majorities. The opposition  has been successful only in North Waterloo, Russell, South  .Renfrew, Prescott, South Perth, West Middlesex, Kent,  South Essex, North Essex,-and South Brace.  . Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his running mate, H. McGivern,  were defeated by close onto 1000 majority in the capital, but  the Liberal leader was returned in Quebec East by 6000.  Quebec did even worse for the Unionises than was expected, 62 out of 65 seats going in.the Liberal column. Three  suscessful Unionists in Quebec were Hon. C.J. Doherty,  minister of justice, who won a three-cornered fight in St.  Anne's division, Montreal; Hon. C. C. Ballantyne, minister  of marine and .fisheries, who was elected by a good majority  in St. Lawrence-St. George div:siou, and 8ir Herbert Ames,  who still holds St. Antoine division in the same city. Outside  of Montreal, no Unionist was elected.  In Quebec province alone did ministers of the crown  suffer defeat.1 Hon. P. E. Blondin, postmaster-general, who  is in England, failed to secure election in either the Laurler-  Outremont division of Montreal or his old constituency of  Champlain, while Hon. A. Sevigny, minister, of inland revenue, was equally-, unsuccessful in Westmount-St. Henry,  Montreal and Dorchester. In the latter constituency his successful opponent was Lucien Cannon. The defeat of these  two ministers leaves. the French-Canadians without representation in the government.  In the Maritime drovinces the Liberals have captured  18 of the 29 contested seat. Prince Edward Island elected  four Liberals and no Unionists; Nova Scotia nine Liberals  and five Unionists, while New Brunswick did better by the  government by electing six Unionists out of the eleven seats.  The two members to represent Halifax will be chosen later.  A striking feature of the election has been the size of  the majorities secured by the Unionist candidates in Ontario  and the west, and b^ the Liberals in Quebed. The record  majority was secured, in South Winnipeg by Allan, the  Unionist candidate, who beat his opponent by more than  13,000. The women's vote was doubtless largely responsible  for the abnormal majorities secured by Unionist candidates,  more   particularly  in   urban  constituencies.  in British Columbia  Everything indicates that  Unionist candidates have been  elected in twelve out of British Columbia's thirteen federal constituencies. The missing  pollsaro principally" those . of  outlying districts from which  the returns may not be received for some time, but it is  not proble that- there will be  any material changes in the  results so far returned.  W. W. B. Mclnnis, who resigned a county court judgeship to enter the contest as a  Liberal in two constituencies  ���������Comox-Alberni ��������� and Vancouver Center���������refused on  Tuesday night to admit his  defeat in the island seat, but  later returns show that the  Unionist" has been elected -by  over 500 majority  Col. Peck, ��������� Skeena, apparently the only Unionist candidate defeated, is overseas  with his battalion. His opponent, Ered Stork, is a 'Prince  Rupert merchant. Four of the  successful - candidates sat in  the . last parliament���������Hon.  Martin Burrell/H. H. Stevens,  R. F/Greeii and "K S. "Clements.  Harry Link letter was instantly killed in Bertois' camp  on Monday last t>y a falling  tree while.he at working peeling a cedar log. He was  was about sixty years of age,  and has been a resident of  of this community for a number of years. The body, badly  mangled, was brought to Mil-.  ler & Gardner's undertaking  parlors in this city on Tuesday, but interment has not yet  taken place.  Linkletter was alone when  tl\e accident happened, and  the details of it are therefore  unknown. As a high wind  was blowing at the time, it is  supposed, however, that the  tree fell without warning while  the man was engrossed in his  work.  At the meeting of the Grand  Forks Curling club last Friday evening the following directors were elected: J. I).  Campbell, C. A. S. Atwood,  H. W. Gregory, Geo. E. Mas-  sie and A. E. Savage. Eight  skips were chosen, and an ice  committee composed of Ben  Norris, R. L. Hodgson and  A. E. Melin was mimed. The  directors will meet at an early  xemption..of Farmers  Mr. Justice Duff (the Final Court of Appeal) Declares, it is Essential'that there shall be No  Diminution in Agricultural Production.  (Published by authority of Director of Public Information,  "    Ottawa.)  Hon. Mr. Justice Duff gave judgment on December  6th, in the first test case brought before him, as Central  Appeal Judge (the final court of appeal), for the exemption of a farmer. The appeal was made by W. H. Rown-  tree in respect of his son, W. J. Rowntree, from the  decision of Local Tribunal, Ontario, No. 421, which  refused a claim for exemption. ,The son was stated to  be an experienced farm hand, who had been working  on the farm continuously for the past seven years, and  ever since leaving school. He lives and works with his  father, who owns a farm of 150 acres near Weston,  Ontario. With the exception of a younger brother, he  is the only male help of the father on the farm. The  father is a man of advanced years,  la granting the man exemption "until.he ceases to  be employed in agricultural labor," Mr. Justice Duff  said:  . .-���������- "The.JVJilitary Service Act does not deal with the  subject of ihe exemption of persons engaged in the agricultural industry; and the question which it is my duty  to decide is whether ihe applicant being and having  been, as above mentioned, habitually and effectively engaged in agriculture and in labor essential to the carrying on of agricultural production, ought to be exempted  under the provisions of the Military Service Act.  "These two propositions are indisputable :  "(1) In order that the military power of the allies  may be adequately sustained, it is essential that in this  country and under the present conditions, there  should be no diminution in agricultural production.  "(2) The supp'Iy of competent labor available for  the purpose of agricultural production is not abundant,  but actually is deficient.  "The proper conclusion appears to be that the applicant, a competent person, who had been habitually  and effectively engaged in labor essential to such production, ought not to he withdrawn from it.  "It is perhaps unnecessary to say that such exemptions are not granted as. concessions on account of personal hardship, still less as a favor to a class. The sole  ground of them is that the national interest is the better  served by keeping these men at home. The supreme  necessity (upon the existence of which, as its preamble  shows, this policy of the Military Service Act is founded) that leads the State to take men by compulsion and  put them in the fighting line requires that men shall be  kept at home who are engaged in work essential to enable the State to maintain the full efficiency of the combatant forces, and whose places cannot be taken by  others not within the class called out."  n Ottawa, Dec. 8, 1917.  date for the puropose of chos-  ing a president.

Selections from Arabian Poetry
It is positively disgustingly cruel to spend
hours inventing a clever phrase, and afterwards, on picking up some classic, learn that
some fool had the impudence to use the same
words about 3000 B.C.
To Adversity
Hail^thou chastening friend   Adversity!   'Tis
The mental ore to temper and refine,
To cast in virtue's mould the yielding heart,
And.honor's polish to the mind impart.
Without thy wakening touch, thy plastic aid,
I'd lain the shapeless mass that nature  made;
But form'd, great artist, by thy magic hahd,
I gleam a sword to conquer and command.

Mrs. Perkins and the Food
"I-see," said Mrs.. Perkins, whose
meliorations appear in the Windsor
Magazine, "that Lord What's'i's-
ua'ine 'as been a-writing to the pa
pers to tell people to keep rabbits
and grow cabbages in their back
yards to keep up the food supply of
the nation.
''I only 'ope 'e'll do it 'imself,"
and I wish 'itn joy. I don't:want to
dash no 'opes, but I tried it myself
ir. a'umble way, you understand,
last summer.
'"I gave a pair of Perkins' boots
and fourpence for two small rabbits,
and that just left room in my gar
den for a dozen sprouting broccoli.
'"For the first three weeks I
thought the broccoli was going to
die of heart disease; but as soon as
they started to sit up and sprout the
rabbits broke out of their hutch and
ate every blessed one up, and expired next day of internal combustion.
."All,I got out of it was the rabbit
skins, which I will say make a
'andsome necklet."

Wood for aeroplane propeller blades must
be one hundred per cent perfect.   There  can
be none  of the  margin of imperfection that
lumber-grading  rules   commonly   recognize.
When the engines are running at the  rate  of
nearly two thousand revolutions a minute, the
pressure is  many thousand pounds to every
square inch of the blades. That pressure sometimes forces sap from blades that were supposed to be "bone-dry," and  sometimes even
splits th,em.    Ash, white  oak,   maple,  birch,
cherry, mahogany, spruce and  black  walnut
are all used for propeller blades.
The Inconsistent
When I sent you my  melons, you  cried  out
with scorn, - : :
They ought to be heavy and wrinkled  and^
When   I offer'd  myself, whom  those  graces
You flouted, and call'd me an ugly old fellow.
' The country is short of reel meat. Our soldiers and our allies require more than ever
before. The government advocates in every
household, every hotel and restaurant in this
country the substitution of poultry for  meat.
There is a hint for the home in the practice
established in one of the great training camps
of he American national army. When the
men ask for a second helping at any meal* the
food is served as requested, but if any of that
food remains uneaten the plate is carefully put
away, tagged with the name of the soldier
who left it, and the left over food is given him
as his first course at the next meai.
A Little Man With a Very Large Beard
How can thy chin that burden bear?
Is it all gravity to shock? '
Is it to make the people stare?
And be thyself a laughing stock?
When I behold thy little feet
After thy beard obsequious run,
I always fancy that I. meet
Some father followed by his son.
A man like th��e scarce e'er appcar'd���
A beard like thine���where shall we find it?
Surely thou cherishest thy beard
In hope to hide thyself behind it.

The 1917   copper  output of   the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelt,  ing & Power company will fall short  by over 5,000,000'pounds- in   com-  .parison with the   preceding   twelve  months,   owing   chiefly   to curtailment "at" the  original" property .at  Grand Forks.  When the   miners  of  the Crow's Nest Pas's Coal company  ���������wenton strike last spring' they   tied  up the smelter in this city   for   lack'  of fuel, and   since ' resumption   the  lilant has .never run at full capacity.  In addition to this condition,   lower  grade of ore encountered also played  . its part in leducing production.  ���������   Although   unable   to   establish a  record   in   production   the Granby  cmipany will have distributed to its  stockholders   a  record   amount   in  dividends,        the       disbursements  amounting to 810 a share,  as   compared with.������7 in the .1910   calendar  period.

Although it has spent more   than  S3,000,C00 in building up a mining  and smelting organization worthy of  the name, the Granby management,  in the fulfillment of  its  plans,   has  other large expenditures  ahead   for  the betterment of the properly as  a  whole   and   the   enlargement of its  scope of operations.

There has just been  issued   a   map  of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest   that  has  been mentioned in  dispaches since the. Canadian . forces  first landed in France. ���������  It  has   been  made cspecially.for the great Canadian   weekly, the   Family   Herald and  Weekly   Star   of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to   Candian ��������� enterprise.  It  Is a   marvel of  detail and yet not  crowded.    It   is   in   four colors  and  about 2������x3i'feet and  folded   into   a  very neat cover, about  5x10   inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the   regimental    badges   and   coat of  arms   of  nearly   every battalion that  left Canada, from -Halifax   to   Vancouver.    Every important  point  can  be recognized at once.

The publishers of The Family Herald   and   Weekly   Star   for   several  months back have been righting   hard  against   the   necessity   of   increasing  their subscription   rates, but  eventu  ally had to come to it like most   othei  papers.    The increase, however,  is   a  mere trifle���������twenty live cents   a year,  making    their   new   rate $1.25���������and  with the year's subscription they   will  include a copy of this great war   map  free of charge.' This is certainly a gen  erous offer, and   one   that   Canadians  will    appreciate.     Many   expected'a  much larger increase in the   subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are   surprised   at   the   small" extra  amount charged. ^  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should he still greater when this offer  becomes known.

Ask at any pharmacy for a quarter  ounce of frcezone, which will cost very  little, but is said to be sufficient to rid  one's feet of every hard or soft corn or  callus.  ."' You apply just a few drops on the  tender, aching corn and instantly the  soreness i3 relieved, and soon the corn  is so snriveled that it lifts out without pain. It is a sticky substance  ���������which dries when applied and never  inflames or even irritates the adjoining tissue.  This discovery will prevent thousands of deaths annually from lockjaw  and infection heretofore resulting from  the culcidal.habit of cutting corns.
