PROPOSITION FOR Puts Proposal Up to Govt, to Reclaim 25,000 Acres For Veterans The original and genuine treatment for chronic diseases of woman and nervoue oomplalnta. end for free copy of "Universal Guide to Health." MRS. WM. FRANCIS, o|o. Mn. H. B. Wllion, 1C2 lit ,�t. W., C��f�ry. Crcston, B.C., Aug. 15.-Tho board of trade Is taking up with tho national service board of Canada, as well as the provincial authorities, a very comprehensive scheme for providing employment for returned soldiers which, if undertaken, will, when completed, provide also an ideal location under most favorable conditions for those of tho veterans who care to follow agriculture as an after-war vocation. Briefly stated the proposition Is to reclaim 25,000 acres of land in Koot-enay River Valley, omploylng returned men on tho work and allowing such of them as care to attempt agriculture tracts of tho reclaimed land adjoining each other, so as to enable tho B. C. government to put into practical effect the returned soldier farm colony schemo. The schomo is one unique in its way, being the uncovering from flood waters of a big inland delta of richest alluvial deposit brought down by ,tho Kootenay River and formed at tho Bouthorn extremity of Kootenay Lake. Tho Kootenay river, with Its tributaries, draining the whole of tho western slopes of thu Rocky Mountains in B. C, and tho Selkirk Ranges, after a bold sweep southward running Into tho United States as far as Bonner's Forry, Idaho, from that point turns directly north again to B.C. and Kootenay Lake. At tho same time the Lar-do river and others run into tho lake at the other end and the combined vol umo of water passes out toward tho centre of the lake by a passage called the West Arm, like the downward stroke of a gigantic T, past Nolson and Bonnington Falls to join the Columbia River. Tho outlet of the West A�m is, how-evor, so restricted in size that it is unable to cope with the enormous vol urao of water which every spring rush os down from the melting anowa of this vast watershed, with the result that Kootenay Lake itself 1b formed, for the time bejng, into an inland sea, ralBlng its level during June and July at times 20 foot abovo Its normal height. When this takes place tho Kootenay River meets this flood-tldo at its entrance to tha lake, heavily la don with oarthy matter from tho moun tains, deposits them thore, a film of fertility which in the course of unknown geological time has become a bed a hundred foot lu depth of richest alluvial soil. The reclamation scheme has solely to do with the enlarging ot the lake's outlet. In 1913 5 Fibre Covered Suit Cases , With straps and leather handK-s. 21 in. Special...............#2,20 20 in.
