While it  was lhe.desi.re of many of those present that the convention should be held  during the summer when the weather  is more suitable to excursions into the  surrounding country to show visitors  the opportunities afforded in the district, the main consideration was-to  secure a time wlien the farmers in the  "irrigation block" could attend, and  it' was' finally decided that the most  favorable time would be after the conclusion of harvest.  The convention this year will be a  strictly business meeting, and will not  only be addressed by prominent irrigation ists of Western Canada, but also  by men brought over from irrigation  districts in the United States, specialists in the cultivation of alfalfa, practical -in igation, live stock raising and  other phases of "farming. Tt is likely  that nn agricultural, exhibition of tlie  products of irrigated land will be held  simultaneously with the convention,  and every inducement will be oll'ered  farmers to .become exhibitors. Cash  prizes will be given.  At. a mass meeting to be held on  Saturday, i\lay 22nd, the local Board  of Control will be elected and a local  executive, chairman and secretary appointed. In the immediate irrigated  section of Bassano a considerable adre-  aci-eage.is now being sown in alfalfa.  .Throughout the Irrigation Block -last  year the total area under alfalfa was  1,017 acres, which had increased fimn  7(15 acres in 1013. According to indications the acreage to be sown this  year will bring the total up to 2.000.  SIR   RICHARD   GETS  ORDERS FOR PROVINCE  Victoria, B.

Clearing    operations    are,   general  throughout the Province,   much activity being shown in this   direction-by  pre-emptors, especially   in  Lhe Fraser  Valley, Vancouver Island, Vei linn and  Tete Jaime areas.      From Cranbrook  heavy rains are reported, which with  the-heavy growth of green vegetation  have greatly reduced the fire hazard.  In that district some eighteen hundred acres of logging   slash have been  disposed of this spring and more will  be dealt with.  Fires in the Vanvouver and Island  Districts were confined to old slash,  which is a constant source of danger  the Forest Service is uontinu.-illy  stiiving to remove.  The comparatively light snowfall in  the Northern [ntei-ior lnel winter and  the early Lhaw that lias brought on  unusually early tlie danger period,  which comes during tlie time between  the disappeianace of tlie snow and Lhe  giuwijh of the new vegetaion.

THE BLIND AVIATOR  With eyesight destroyed by a German shell, and carrying in his ma-'  ch.ine a lieutenant observer who was  moitally wounded, a French avi.itinn  pilot tells a thrilling stoiy of a reconnaissance in Flanders.  When over the German lines a well-  directed shell burst close to them!  "Then I saw nothing but blackness all  around me," says the pilot. ''Guided by  noises helow I turned 'in tlie direction  in- which I hoped to meet comrades.  But soon a fresh.'hail of bullets .warned nio that wi .'were  again  above   the  r t  (?ei niiiii lines.    Then I realized that f.  was   blind.  "'Are you all light, lieutenant?' I  shouted. 'Si-i-iously wounded, I fear,'  lie said. Then, seeing I was turning  my back on our lines, he said,' 'Make '  half a turn lo the left. More td'tbe  left still. That's riglH. Straie-ht ahead  now.' Three minutes later the voice r  of the observer called, 'That's it. Heie  we are. I see our men down there  wailing fur us-. Shut; oil' tho spark and  volplane gently, down;' and soon our  landing wheels grated on,-the ground,  at the same moment thai brave, lieutenant breathed his last."  .-^-v^vi  Greenwood Mines To Re-open.

People have found that ONE SPOONFUL of this simple buckthorn bark  and glycerine mixture relieves almost  ANY CASE of constipation, sour or  gassy stomach. It is so powerful that  it is used successfully in appendicitis.  ONE MINUTE after you take it the  gasses rumble and, pass out. It is perfectly safe to use and cannot gripe.  Many are starving to death, others  are committing-suicide to escape the  terrors of hunger, and thousands are  on Llie verge of starvation in the Province of Szeehuan, China, because of  fa mini-, according to mail advices to  the Slate Department received recen tly  l'roin E. Cai'Ieon Baker, United States  consul at Chung-King. The famine is  due to a protracted drouth, particularly in the region of Fuchow and  Chungchow. President Yuan Shi Kai  is said Lo have authorized an expenditure of $100,000 for the relief of the  sufferers.  "How did you get your clothes torn  and your face bruised?" asked the  boy's father.  "My condition," was Lhe cautious  reply, "is the result of a slide to  second ba.se."  "But'I thought you were umpiring  the game?"  "I was. I said the boy who slid  didn't make it."  The railway engineers have been  working acioss tlie river for a few  days.  Frank Bailey left for Aspen Grove  on Sunday where ho is interested in  various mineral claims.  Chief Engineer J. IT.

Bowerman is.getting lumber on  the ground to erect a residence on the  north side of Webster street west of  Scott  nvenue.  W. A. McLean returned from Suiu-  nierlaiid on Sunday night and reports  wonderful improvements in that part  of the district, no less than -10,000 fruit  trees having been planted there this  season, and an excellent class of settlers have come in.  Mr. Jell'rey sold his house and lot on  Ellis avenue, at present being used for  the school, to the local manager of the  Bank of B. N.

The Beixish victims aytll  be avenged ��������� what ok the  American ?  The Imperial murderers plead  "guilty" and justification.  They did it. They glory in it.  They sent fifteen hundred unarmed and inoffensive non-combatants to death, Avithout even  the pretence whic-L. served as an  excuse in Belgium���������that "someone" had fired on the soldiers of  tlie Kaiser. It is stated that  they butchered one hundred and  fifty babies, under two years of  age. It is doubtful whether  Herod spilled more baby blood  at Bethlehem.  It is impossible to exaggerate  the cruelty, the brtital cynicism,  the savage ferocity of the crime.  A great "liner" laden with men,  women and children of all nations,  carrying over two thousand souls and not one shotted  gun, bringing sorrowing mothers   to   the   bedsides   of   their  wounded    boys    and     anxious  wives   to   soothe   the   pain   of  their injured husbands, cradling  babies whom their fathers longed to  clasp  once  more before  they died,-���������this great "liner" is  deliberately marked "out for a  sudden stroke of death which  Berlin  knew in  advance must  murder   most   of  the   helpless  and harmless human beings on  board.  The warnings which the German Government now freely  admits were issued before the  sailing of the "Lusitania," do  not constitute���������as Berlin imagines���������a mitigation of tlie outrage, but an aggravation of its  malignity. These Avarnings  prove malice aforethought ���������  cool and callous planning���������deliberate devilry. German agents  appear to have watched the  grey-haired grandmothers, the  prattling - babes, the unarmed  civilians, the missioners of mercy, ascend to the decks of the  doomed "liner" with the feelings  of the hunter who sees his  quarry enter his cunningly-  baited trap. They knew that,  when their stealthy torpedoes  tore through the rippling sea,  the grandmothers and the babes-  in-arms would 1 *.-. the first and  the surest to strangle in the  ice-cold waters.  and torture.: It is an act which  challenges Christian civilization. If the-modem world-cannot punish and effectively prevent crimes of this character,  then we might as well tear the  New Testament out of our Bibles, and go humbly back to the  days when, conquerors carried  off their captives as slaves, when  cities were razed and their sites  sown with salt, when humanity  had never- known a Christ.  The three Great Powers of  the Triplice are exerting every  ounce of their strength to beat  back and finally disarm the  makers of this brand of war.  Our men are dying in the  trenches by the thousand to  render powerless the arm which  emerged, red with the blood of  civilian Belgium, to pour out  the lives of these civilian travellers into the sea. We���������Britain,  France, Russia, Belgium, Serbia  ���������are doing what we can to  chain the dragon. If we fall,  the fault will not be ours���������nor  will the devastating consequences be confined to our peoples.  From the first, some of us  have felt that the great and  clean-souled American people  should be with us. We felt that  they���������had they spoken from the  impulses of their hearts���������would  have sternly protested the violation of Belgium. We felt that  many another defiance of law  should have brought down upon  its perpetrators the indignation  of the American conscience. We  feel today that, had the United  States taken a firm stand from  the first; the "Lusitania" would  never have been stabbed to  death!  That crime, however, has presented the final test to American  nationality. Over one hundred  American citizens have been  wantonly murdered by German  officers, acting under Berlin  orders and defended by Berlin  official statements. Our neighbors have only read their histories to know what is the fate  of nations which cannot or will  not defend the lives of their  own people. The British Empire  has gone to war more than once  because one poor British subject  has been wronged. British expeditions have penetrated  mountains, fastnesses and overcome incredible difficulties to  rescue imperilled British citizens. That is one reason why  Ave love the British flag and regard our membership in the  British Empire as a possession  beyond price.  sinking was abound  to  drown  many American, citizens;  We do not'' know what, the  Americans Avill do in the case.  We believe, howevei-j that Ave  do know what the Brisish will  do. We know Avhat the British  have done. Avhen a far smaller  outrage has been inflicted upon  British men, women and children.-���������Montreal Star.

The dance held last Friday night by  the Hediey Orchestra was not so well  patronized as was anticipated, owing  partly to there being other appointments on the same evening. Those  who attended, however, appeared to  thoroughly enjoy themselves, as wis  evidenced by the fact thai the gathering did not break up until about 3 a.m.  The music was supplied by Lhe orchestra, interspersed by selections on the  player piano. ^1"  Mrs. S.

INNIS  Proprietor  A novel use of the aeroplane is under consideration by owners of Newfoundland sealing vessels,1 as a result  of the failure of lhe seal hunt this  year. It is proposed that two experienced aviators be engaged to visit the  east coast and tho Gulf of St. Lawrence respectively just before the  opening of the next season and locate  the herds. The information thus obtained would enable the fleet to sail  directly for- the scene of the hunt, instead of spending much time in searching for the animals.  The  excitement  of  the  lirst homestead rush to Western Canada, was recalled   a   few   days   ago   when   some  choice   locations   were   available   for  entry at Moose Jaw.    Over 200 land  seekers lined up in front of the Dominion  Lands  Office,  and  the crush was  so great  that   the elevator service in  the building had to   be suspended  for  the lime being and the applicants were  lined   up  and  matched   in   in   proper  order.     The  incident serves to  show  that tlie  popularity of Western Canada lands has  never diminished,   but  is now greater than ever. I  "Winning: Ills  Consent.

There is but one thing to do with old  love letters���������in fact, with all old lot-  tors, love or otherwise���������and that is to  burn them.  Letters are personal, the thoughts,  the wishes of the moment. Letters are  seldom of historical interest. If so, it  1s on easy matter to preserve those.  An old letter is seldom of interest  while life is granted to the writers, and  but a cause of misery after death has  clairaed cither. Should both writer and  tire one addressed be taken from tho  world the old letters are either carelessly paraded or left to mold in a corner of the attic.
