Returned Soldiers' Colony
Creston, B, C, Board of Trade
is taking up with the National
Service Board of Canada, as well
as the provincial authorities, a
very comprehensive scheme of providing employment for returned
soldiers, which, if undertaken,
will, when completed, provide also
an ideal location under most favorable conditions for those of the
veterans who care to follow agriculture as an after-war vocation.
The proposition which iB unique
in its way, is to reclaim 25,000
acres from Hood waters of a big inland delta of richest alluvial deposit brought do wu by the Kootenay river and formed: at the
southern extremity of Kootenay
lake;?-:-.-;Returned soldiers would be
employed on the work, and allowingsuch of theni as can to follow
agriculture on the reclaimed tracts.
The fertility of this soil has been
proven, and it is in one of the older settled parts of B. C. interior.
If the above goes through it will
enable the B. C, Government to
put into practical effect the returned soldier farm colony scheme.

in tbe presence of a large number
of friends of the bride and groom,

champagne-colored crepe de chine,
with a large picture hat, and carried a lovely boquet of bridal roses.

The Doukhobor  accused of assaulting F. H. Wallsie. Danville,
was arrested at the colony farm,
Carson,   Saturday by the provincial police.    On Tuesday he had
his trial before Police Magistrate
Cochrane.   The evidence tended
to show that three Danville men
���F. H. Wallsie,  H. Haslin and
Mr. Keathley���had gone into the
field where the Doukhobor was
at work, near the Carson school-
house, to have some "fun" with
him,  and that   the   Douk  had
picked up a  rock and thrown it
at tha men.    The missile struck
Wallsie in the forehead, inflicting
quite a severe wound- The judge
ordered the Doukhobor released,
and   fined   Keathly  and   Haslin
each   $20   and   costs.     Wallsie,
who had been injured, he thought
I had been sufficiently punished for
I his  "fun."    The latter gentle-;
j man.   who  was brought  to  the
'Grand  Forks hospital after his
j encounter with the DoOk, had recovered sufficiently on  Tuesday
' to leave tor his homei���-Son.y

has bought 31 miner's certificates
in Kootenay, and built manv a

some consideration. Without such
men Kootenay wonld be a virgin

Western Float
In writing to a friend in Canada

quotation from Tennyeon, "Cannons to right of them, cannons to

them." The censor cut it out
thinking that the writer was giving
away the positions of our artillery.
It will not do the country merchants much good to tax the mail

fade away.

Robert Preston died in New

years. He came west in 18G4, and
had lived in New Westminster
since 1S79.
Magnesite Ore
The development of the magnesite industry in this section was
given an impetus by the breaking
out of the European war which
shut off importation of Austrian
and Hungarian magnesites and
greatly curtailed shipments from
Greece, says the Chewelah Independent. This forced the American market to use bome material
and to pay the freight rates which
in normal times it could not stand.
One of the big users of magnesite
is the American Refractories Company of Chicago and western magnesite is shipped to its plants in
the eastern states where it is manufactured into blocks for furnace
linings, and sintered for bottoms of
open-hearth steel furnaces.
Magnesite is also used as a plastic, large quantities being made into flooring, imitation marble and
stucco, its non-cracking qualities
and the hardness of the surface attained making it especially well
suited for the purpose. However,
this branch of the business is yet
in its infancy in the United States
and will grow to large proportions
when the public learns to appreciate its possibilities.
The first magnesite was brought
to this country from Greece in the
early eighties for use in our steel
plants. During 1885 about 500
tons were imported. The total for
each year gradually increased until in 1913 there were imported
175,000 tons of calcined product,
representing fully 375,000 tons
crude.
Beat Them To It
An official of the board of health
in a town not far from Boston,
notified a citizen that his licence
to keep a cow on his premises had

Hon. W. J. Hanna, Canadian
Food Controller, calculates that
food wasted in the garbage pails of
Cauada each year through carelessness and lack of kitchen economy
amounts to ��56,000,000 per year;
or about'$7 per head of population.
The End of It All
Need the Wheat
Canada and the United States
must cut down their normal wheat
consumption by 160,000,000 bushels to meet the needs of Great
Britain and the Allies. Hon, W.
J. Hanna, Canadian Food Controller, estimates that to feed Great
Britain, France, and the other
Alliep, and the men at the front,
will require 1,105,000,000 bushels
of wheat. This means at least
400,000,000 will have to be imported from Canada and the
United States. There will be
under normal consumption in these
two countries only 300,000,000
bushels snrplus for export, and eo
by special efforts of food conservation tbe people of United States
and Cauada will have to make up
a phortage of  160,000,000 bushels.
Raw eggs are very easily digested.    The   digestibility   of  cooked
eggs depends upon the  manner in
which   they   ara   cooked.      They
should be cooked at low temperature. .  Egg   albumen   begins   to
coagulate at 134CF., becomes jellylike at iGO'F.,  and,,   when heated
to the  boiling point,   212=F.   berimes a tough leathery  mass and
very indigestible.
A lawyer died in an American
provincial town, and his fellow-
lawyers wrote over his grave:
���'Here lies a lawyer and an honest man."
Not long after, the governor of
the province visited the town, and
among other places inspected the
cemetery. When he came to the
lawyer's grave he stopped, read the
inscription once or twice, aud
turning to the head inspector,
Baid:
"Look here, my friend. We
wink at a good many things in
this province, but I dp object to
your burying two men in one
grave."
Ah! the end of it all���
Of this life that we live;
Of the blows that we get
And the blows that we give;
Of the joys and the griefs
That to each of us fall-
Blind humanity dreams
Of the end of it all.
The lover-who yearns
For affection denied;
The prince in his hall
And the pauper outside;
The parents whose darling
Lies under .lie pall���
Each mournfully dreams
Of the end of it all.
Since God in His love
For his children denies
This glimpse of the end
To humanity's eyes,
Let each bravely answer
Life's manifest call
And rely on the Lord
For the end of it all.
