Home Town
Thou shalt honour thy home
town with a neighborhood house.
Thou shalt meet thy neighbors
there on equal footing. Thou
shalt work with them there for the
common welfare. Thou shalt play
with them there with all thy heart
and- strength and mind. Thou
shalt know thy fellows better and
thy friendships shall multply.
Investigate Before
Your well-earned savings are
worth keeping and guarded against
a poor investment. Beware of
the rapid-fire stock salesman, and
his easy and oily promise of making you rich quick. Don't put your
savings into any stock or loan proposition without having it investigated. If . you are asked to buy
stock in a proposition you know
nothing about, we suggest that you
turn the name of the company and
salesman over to your banker, and
he,will look into it foryou. - Investigate, before you sign for an investment.
Trade at Home
The dollar that goes out of town
never comes back, and the money
spent at home is used to develop
the town and help make improvements. If home trading were discontinued entirely there would be
no towns in the country, and even
the occasional dollar taken outside
hampers the growth of the community.
There's just one kind of a man
or institution that cannot afford to
advertise the one that has not honest goods.   Advertising and "The

Smelter  Win from Elks in
Baseball Game
On Friday, July 27th, the Smelter
and Elks came together in a well contested game of/baseball. The Smelter
playing in their early season form
romped home with a 5-0 victory. The
Elks were badly handicapped by the1
absence of several of their players, and
were not able to put up as stubborn a
fight owing to the change in the outfield.
In the third inning Sinclair reached
first on an error,. and was forced out
at. second, Matheson being safe at
first; a two base hit by Fortin; a hit
by Brown and a sacrifice by J. Mer
Keown-scored three rims. Again in
fifth, the Smelter scored another run,
Fortin going to first on an error, and
was advanced round the bags by a
sacrifice and a hit. The final run was
scored in the seventh, when Brown
got to first on a hit and came home
when the next man up hit for one hit
The Elks were unable to register a
run although iu the/fourth two hits
were made in, succession and it looked,
as though they were due for some
runs. However, Roberton after
making the first hit of this inning was
caught out stealing at second before
Cy. Greenwell connected with the
apple for a safety. The Elks' were
able to collect only 3 hits off of Fortin
whilst the Gas-Eaters touched the
horse-hide for 7 safeties.   -■'• ,

Canada Faces the Future
With Confidence
CANADIANS have always been
noted for courage, optimism -
and faith in their country.
Canada was not built up by pessimists, nor will Canada continue to
develop if hei people allow themselves to become croakers and
grouchers. Canada
is fundamentally
an agricultural
country. We have
a soil and climate
which can grow
the world's finest
agricultural products.
Canadian farmer s who have
earned the capital
invested in their
farms out of profits
in farming are
numbered in thousands. These successful farmers
have paid off their
mortgages, stocked
their barns and
stables, bought their
machinery, made a
good liv ing and
brought up their families. It meant hard
work, but today they
are independent.
Money in Mixed Farming
In recent years, at different points
on the prairies, oats fed- to steers have
brought from 70c to $1.07 as against the
Fort William price of 42c per bushel,
while barley used for the same purpose
has brought as. high as 99c as against the
Fort William price of 57c per bushel.
Farmers marketing, their coarse grains
in this way lower' marketing cost, have
a sure market and make money on their
grain, while at the same time they market
their roughage, otherwise often wasted.
The cattle'embargo is now off. Steers
are worth more money and certain to
make good money for the Canadian
farmer from now on.
Money in Pigs
The Dbminion Experimental Farms
have proved by actual test that there
is a profit in feeding pigs. Last year at
the Central Farm, Ottawa, after faying
for feea, labor, interest and depreciation,
the net profit per pig was still $4.63.
Profits from Sheep
As money-makers, sheep are hard to
beat. In every Province .from Prince
Edward Island to British Columbia are
found many flocks returning generous
profits to their owners,
We Must Cut
Production Costs
Canada is meeting with the
keenest competition in the marketing of her products. To hold
her own and regain her place on
the world's market, she must reduce cost of production.
The only way to' do this is to
increase production per acre, per
cow or per other unit.
But improved quality, also, IS
essential to meet market demands.
The quantity and the quality
of the products and the cost of
production in competitive countries is beyond our control
Prices of agricultural products
are regulated by, world supply
and demand
Hence, decreasing production.
wiM not help the Canadian
Poultry Pays
Poultry makes
money for those who
adopt modern methods, whether East or
West. Little Prince
Edward Island markets co-operatively in
carlots, shipping annually upwards of one
million 'dozen eggs.
The British Columbia
Co-operative Poultry
Men's Exchange
markets in the same
way, thus saying
ruinous glut in their
local market.
There is a market
for good Canadian
horses, whether light
or draught,
Grow Seed
Canada's Northern
grown seed possesses
extra vitality. There
is a large market for
it to the south. Canada exports seed potatoes, but imports
other seeds. She has the opportunity
to grow seeds for herself and for export.
The Future
i Ten years from now the pessimists of
today will have been forgotten. Britain
has removed the embargo against our
cattle. She wants our beef and bacon,
our cheese, butter, eggs and apples, our"
wheat and flour. As the population of
the United States increases, she will
compete less and less against us on the
British market. Eventually, she will
herself be an importer of many other
food stuffs besides wheat from this
Canada has the men, the climate, the
land, the stock and the potential markets necessary for agricultural success.
Let us farm with all the industry and
science we can muster. Let's' get to work
and pay our debts. Canada is moving
forward with confidence in its future.
Let us keep going ahead.
