Old-  shield, a ne w member of the United  States marine corps, can speak the  best English that Carlisle university  allbrds, it takes his native Sioux  tongue to express just svhat he thinks  of the kaiser:  Oldshield is a grandson of the  Sioux chief, Red Cloud, famous in the  days of Wounded Knee and Buffalo  Bill. He came from Manderson, S.D ,  ou the very edge of the Bad Lands,  and is bound for Berlin.  Oldshield is only 19 years old, and  has been in the marine corps a short  time, but has already been appointed  a squad leader, in line for further  promotion. He is attached to the 23d  company, marine barracks, at Paris  Point, S. C.  Among the German alien women  just registered in Spokane was one  born in a receiving vault in a cemetery in Chicago, the night of September 9, 1871, when the fire that  destroyed the greater potlion of the  city was raging.  "The fire broke out a few hours  before I was born," says Mrs. Bradford. "It invaded the region where  my parents were living, and my  mother, in the absence of my father,  who was at work, went to the cemetery, as Bhe imagined it offered the  greatest safety. On account of her  condition she carried with her a  feather mattress from her bed.  "Soon after she reached the cemetery   she  became  ill and was taken  by other refugees" and a sexton   into  the receiving vault, where she  gave  birth to' twins.���������,.My/mpther and-the  other   infant   died, but I  survived  and.-'was   cared for  by.the sexton,  who kept-me alive with water sweet-  'ened with'sugar for forty-eight ho'urt*  until my father came and found the  dead bodies of my mother  and   my  twin   sister,   thus   enabling   him  to  identify me.  "My father died a/few. years "later  and I; was reared by friends. After  1 grew to womanhood I married and  two sons were born to us. Both of  them now are fighting for, their  country in France. Several .years  ago I came to Spokane and married  the second time, my husband being  a German suhject, and now Ifind  myself, a native-born woman, the  mother of two soldiers, being com  pelled to register as an enemy of my  country." '  A Paris dispatch of the 27th ult.  says that Lieut. Schweiger, the man  who sank the Lusitania, has ben  captui-ed by a French patrol boat in  the Mediterranean, according to Le  Journal. A, large, submarine of  which he was second in command  had just torpedoed a British eteamer  between Malta and Sicily. The  German was waiting to see the ves  sel sink when the two*Frencb patrol  boats emerged from the fog and  sank the U-boal Of the crew of 75  only one officer and four men were  rescued by the patrol boats.  While being taken to Toulon tbe  officer appeared ill at ease. When  he thought no one was looking he  tiied to throw some papers over  board, but a sailor seized his arm.  He refused to auswer questions, but  an examination of the papers ex  plained his uneasiness.  Le Journal asks if tbe man who  committed the ."most vile, the most  barbarous and the most cowardly  act in the aunals of the war," is  merely to be sent to a prison camp.  A dispatch from Toulon last Friday which described the sinking of  a German submarine in the Mediterranean by patrol boats added that  the mate of the submarine attempted to commit.suicide when brought  on board a rescue ship. The man  appeared to be insane and was re  ported to have .declared that the.-jQ*.  boat had torpedoed  the  Lusitania.  propaganda, in our opinion, should  have been more advertised by tho  powers that be, previous to enforcing  restrictions as drastic as those we are  now confronted witn.  We think a general modification  of the restriction should be made  where it interferes with the sale aud  preserving of fruit, at least until  candy making and other dainties are  further restricted.  We have no doubt that conservation of sugar is necessary, but why  revoke the policy of encouraging the  use of fruit as a substitute for but-  terfats?���������Markets Bulletin.

Miss West, of Victoria, is visiting  The Su^ar Situation  Consumption of fruit is being retarded first by the high cost of the  necessaries of life, and secondly by  constantly changing sugar restrictions  There is no apparent scarcity of money  and the former condition could be  helped by a little well-placed advertising, but the latter in view of the  abundance of candy made and offered  for sale would stand a little more explaining by the food control board.  Until the meaning   of   recent   restrictions   is  better   understood, and  we confess that we are at  a   loss   to  understand   them,    wo   would advise  growers and shippers to   sell   several  blocks of their produce at the opening  pices, instead of holding too  long   for  an advace.    Prospects for good prices  never   wero   better,   but they should  not be spoiled by   holding   on.    The  best   market   is   the one that is constantly fed; besides sugar  restrictions  aud uneven   supply   can   reduce   the  brightest prospect to a panicky  state,  as   the   one   depends   largely on the  other.

Thefirst'step in  tbe campaign "was taken a few days  ago with the uppointment   of   W. J.  Sloan, a local newspaper man, as supervisor of the city war garden   bureau.    Mr. Sloan volunteered   early  this   year   to   aid  in the work and  orgauized it so  effectively   that   the  city's   war  garden production   this  year will be more than doubled and  will have in value to home  consumers in dollars and cents of   approximately ������750,000.   The records show  that 8515 community   war   gardens  were cultivated in that city this year.  Mr. Sloan    gave   up   the work in  July, but now   has   been   asked   to  take'mil charge of next yeai's   campaign.  It is planned  to  secure   the  cultivation of every avail ihle piece of  ground iu tbe city.  His fiist act will  be to secure the us������ ot   lOuU acres of  land    which   owners failed to plant  this year for the planting  of  wheat.  "Salt Lake wants no vacant    lots,  much less vacant ucres, that can   be  made   to   produce  a food crop next  year," Mr. Sloan says.  The city war garden bureau, with  the appointment of Mr. Sloau has  become permanent, according to the  city.commission, and even after tbe  pressing need for food subsides, it  will be continued in an effor. toward  tbe keeping of food prices reaeon-  able.  On Wednesday, September 4,  1918, in tbe presence of immediate  friends and relatives, a quiet but  pretty wedding was solemnized at  the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W.  A. Hansen,. Gilpin, when the Rev.  Philip C. Haymun united in marriage Gustav H. Frache and Miss  Agnes O'Niel, of Sherwood, Oregon.  The bride wore a beautiful crepe*"  the chine wedding dress, with veil,  and carried a colonial bouquet of  Ophilia roses and white carnations.  Miss M. Knight wa3 bridesmaid,  while the groom's brother, B.  Frache. acted as best man.  After a dainty wedding breakfast  had been served the happy couple  left amid showers of rice and old  shoes for Christina Lake to spend  tbeir honeymoon. The young couple  were the recipients of many beauii-  ful wedding presents. Mr. and Mrs.  Frache will make their future home  at the greenhouses in the west end  of tbis city.  News of the City  D.

Ben Hoy, the well  known   horti-  turist, was married in   Kelowna  re  cently to Miss Ruby Elliott.  Remarkable Weather  A story telling contest between  two old settlers stimulated their  memories to such an extent tbat  they recollected fogs that surpass  the mo3t picturesque descriptions of  those pa3t masters of the art of exaggeration���������the ancient mariners of  our coasts.  ''The worst fog I ever seen," said.,  tbe first old settlor, "was back in '74.  I remember 1 had to go to the henhouse that night, aud the fog was  so blame thick J had to pet the  three hired men to push me through  it."  "I remember that there '74 fog  well," said tbe second old settler,  "but it wa'n't uothin' to the 'G-'i  one. That was a fog! Solid! Why,  us boys sat on the fence behind the  distillery all that day makin' fog  balls and heavin' 'em at the people  that went by."

Wo may not be familiar with the law  on roads and streets in small towns, but we  do know that in large cities an alley is not  .considered a public thoroughfare. It is simply  placed there as a convenience for the people  living in the block, who practically own it,  and who havp'the right to prohibit it"from being used as su public highway. If this is a good  law in cities, it should be equally beneficial to  the .people of small towns. A more general observance of it might save many accidents in the future.  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1918  The bylaw providing for.a reconstruction of  tlie city council by reducing the-aldermanic  representation, which will be submitted to a  vote of the ratepayers next Thursday, the 12th  inst., should be defeated, because  It gives no reasonabls assurance that the  expenses of the city will be reduced.  It centralizes power and will leave some  districts of the city without representation in  tne council. Grand Forks covers a large territory, and all sections are entitled to a voice  in the city government.  It had its inception in the brain of a man  who ������is a .beneficiaryof the city to the extent  of nearly a thousand dollars a year, who, by  reducing the membership, sees an opportunity  securing a still firmer grasp on the council  and thus profiting to a greater degree than  heretofore.  It is ..liable to throw the city government into the hands of a very small clique,  the members of which may use there offices to  advance their own private interests.  It has the appearance of a political move,  the promoters of the movement being apparently anxious to feed an "official organ," which  may be useless to them in fui ure elections.  It cm give no .guarantee- that it will save  the city one cent. -That, question will rest entirely with future��������� councils.  It will leave a large number of ratepayers  without proper representation in  the council.  While discussing highways and accidents,  ]t may not be inopportune to draw the attention of the authorities to the fact that a public road has been cut across the southeastern  corner of the children's playground at the  Central school. There is no necessity for this'  short-cut. If automobilists. and drivers of  other vehicles have not got time to follow  the regular streets, they should. get faster  autos and faster horses. Some day an accident that could have been prevented may occur there if proper 'steps are not now taken  to prohibit public traffic from crossing the  grounds.  <r-  X.  Conserve Your Eyesight  No one can estimate the extent to which we must depend upon  our eyesight to win this war. It is important then that our eyes  be as nearly 100 per cent efficient as possible. This is an important consideration regardless of the work you are performing for  your country. If your eyes are not normal they will not stand  up under the strain, and neadache and other troubles will be the  result. We are specialists in Optical Work. Call and see us if  your eyes are in need of help.  A.D. MORRISON ���������25Lk������g?ta  =**-,  j  Every ratepayer desires to reduce the cost  of operating the city, but it is our firm conviction that the bylaw now before the municipal  electors will not accomplish this end. The  salary question has been pretty well digested  by the taxpayers, and we think they have  come to the conclusion to secure a council  next January the members of which will  pledge themselves to donate their services to  the city. In this event the number of the  aldermen will really be immaterial.    There  is  is no reason whv such a council could not be  ������    - -  seemed. The city clerk is capable of directing the work of the city, and the council need  only act as an advisory board. It should not  be difficult to find seven men in the city willing to act in this capacity without remuneration.  Cancer is of greater frequency at ages over  40 than tuberculosis, pneumonia, typhoid fever  or digestive diseases. At ages 'over 40 one  person in eleven dies of cancer. Yet cancer is  not a hopeless, incurable disease. If taken at  the beginning the majority of cases are curable. Practically all cases will end in death if  left alone. Cancer is at first "a local disease.  It is easily cured if promptly recognized and  at once removed by competent treatment. It  is-'practically always''incurable in its later  stages. Early diagnosis is therefore all-important.

Canadian soldiers returning from the front  report that the old-fashioned rifle and bayonet  is coming into favor again as the weapon  which must in the last analysis win the war.

Recently a case arose where Long Distance  was asked to get on the wire a party who  was cruising-in- yacht in .the..Gulf of  Georgia. It was not known (where he  was, but the message was extremely urgent. Without delaying the work of the  operator, or the number of places called,  it is enough to say that the party was  located and a message sent out by row-  boat that he was wanted on the telephone.

CANADIAN WINS  REPRIMAND AND  COMMISSION TOO  Charley Spencer, one of  the best  known   locomotive   engineers   run  ning on the Canadian   Pacific   rail-  , way, between Vancouver and North  Bend, before joining  the  colors on  he ou'.break of the war, is  credited  ,with    having, with   the   aid   of   his  '"fireman,   stolen   a    train   from the  German lints on the    French   front  and bringing it safely, to the  British  lines, with German soldiers   looking  on. unaware, until too late, of what  was happening,  'lhe trnin was loaded    wnlv ���������'large ������������������'calibre  shells   and  i th -r-   munitions.

The  adventure  was cmrb'd out whbout the'   knowledge o-   Spencer's   o[lifers, and, ae  cording to :hf st< ry.   tftjovoivncl a  severe   reprimand   for   doing   s-ueh  things   without     ord**r*-.    and    was  given a conimiosion,   *iiul   now   has  charge of a whole section ot   French  railway.  Potatoes  We have been asked to give information as to the prospect for selling  British Columbia potatoes on the prairie market between now and -digging  time, says 'In Markets Bulletin. We  'may say that Armstrong potatoes are  otti'iiig here at S2S per ton   at   pres  ent, and that in our opinion is poor  business. It has one redeeming feature, and that is that it permits the  A berta growers to let their spuds  stand in the ground, until' fully matured. In Edmonton this week a  Stony Plain grower tried to sell some  good spuds at a reasonable price but  could not get a look in owing to the  low priced British Columbia spuds.  If the crop was large as well as the  acreage we could understand our  growers stampeding this market, but  under the conditions as we understand them, it would be better to  stop shipping potatoes and vegetables,  other than those that the market, here  calls tfor, untii the local supply is  diminished to some degree.  We should cater to the early and  late potato trade  The cities of tne plains have all  good potato crops and some line vegetables Tlie general crop in Alberta  will not far exceed half a crop of  rather small potatoes, due largely to  early frost and drought. ��������� Taking all  the circumstances into review we  would say that potatoes will sell better later on and those that are kept  in British Columbia until Nouember  will bring a better price than those  marketed now.
