§ of Real Protection
THE quality of any good paint depends on the quality of its basic constituent, White Lead. This is the element that assures durability, spreading capacity and economy, and gives to paint its ability to protect and
preserve. That Brandram's Genuine B.B. White Lead has maintained world
leadership through ten generations of practical painters is proof of its unusual merit.
BRANDRAM'S GENUINE
B.B. WHITE LEAD
is unrivalled for covering-capacity and durability.—the finest and whitest yon can
uie, either for white paint or as a white base for tinted painto. This it the white
lead used in B-H Paint and other B-H products.
If you have not yet become acquainted with Brandram's Genuine B.B. White Lead,
try it on yonr very next painting job. You will always uie it, if you once give it
a trial.

A Friendly Note Of Warning
When n man occupying lhe Importanl nnd high olflce of Lleuiemint-Gov-
ernor oi n Province 1'oela ii fncumbeni on htm to lift his voice In public protest agalnsl the Ht-ltish altitude of people in Eastern Canada regarding matters of vital concern to th^prosperlty and development of the Provinces of
Western Canada, ii is time for those same Eastern people and Interests to
awaken lo ihe facl that they are playing a nationally dangerous game.
Lieutenaut-GoverUfpr Brett, of Alberta. Is not a man to speak hastily or
without giving due consideration lo the effect any statement from a man in
his position may have. Ho is a highly trained professional man, absolutely
impartial, strictly non-partizan in -a poliiieal sense, and Intensely loyal to
Canadian ideals and institutions. Vei on the occasion of a recent visit to
Ontario he was, to use his own words, "goaded'to exasperation" over the
attitude assumed by Eastern people towards the Wesl and fta needs and problems to such an extent that he made known his mind in a newspaper inter1
ilew in the course of which lie asked the very pertinent question: "If a barrier was ptftced al Fori William, what would happen to all lhe Eastern industries"
Answering Ids own question, Dr. Brett declared they would be ruined.
Vet Eastern interests go on blindly, and with a self-suflieiency amounting
to smugness, declaring to the world and convincing themsely.es thai ihey owe
nothing io the West; that on the contrary, it is the East Chat has made and
developed the West, and that his section of the Dominion is heavily in debt
to them.
When a man In Dr. Brett's position even so much as hints in a published
interview at the possible effects of cutting the Dominion in two at the head of
the lakes, and follows lhat up by calling upon the people of the west to realize the absolute importance of "continuing io hammer away until they,have a
real voice in their own affairs," it Is, we repeat, time for the East* to give heed
io Ihe slate ol feeling Ihey are themselves engendering in this Western
country.
We do not believe there is more than a mere handful of people in Camilla
who would like to see Ihe Dominion divided inlo two separate and distinct
British commonwealths, east and west. At lhe same time there are unquestionably thousands who believe that economically Western Canada would be
much better off, and decidedly more prosperous, if it was relieved from the
handicaps imposed upon it through Eastern selfishness and self-Interest.
The West demands the completion of I lie Hudson Bay railway. Every
poliiieal party In Canada has approved its construction and pledged themselves to it. Yet the financial, transportation and commercial interests of
Monlreal, Toronto, Quebec anil the. Maritime Province seaports have Derm
successful in denying I his much needed outlet to the Wesl.
The West stands badly in need of branch lines of railway without which
tens of thousands of settlers are struggling to eke out an existence. Theso
branch lines are likewise essential as feeders to the great transcontinental
lines of our National railways, but Eastern interests opposed to Government,
ownership have thus far succeeded in blocking construction.
The East declares It cannot survive unless its manufacturing industries
are bolstered up by high tariff protection imposed on the whole Dominion.
The West has learned from bitter experience that it cannot develop and prosper under such a handicap. II the East Insists upon an*must have this
arttttclal stimulus, let them have it, but give to the West, which can stand
on iis own feel and does not require artificial supports, freedom in regard
10 Its own fiscal policies and needs,
The Western Provinces can only obtain "a real voice In their own affairs" by secession, by out-voting the East In Ihe House of Commons, or by
convincing the East as to the justice and necessity of admitting the West to a
larger measure of authority in determining questions vitally and primarily
affecting the West.
Secession should, and will be. seriously considered only as a lasl despvr-
ale remedy.
The ablllt) io otlt-vole lhe Eastern Provinces can only come with enormously Increased population, which increase is being delayed because of the
handicaps imposed on lhe Wesl.
The sane, sensible, patriotic solution |8 lor Hie East to abandon Ihelr
present attitude of regarding the West, as, one paper puis H, a child in need
of a governess, and Ira nit ly admitting ihe right of Western people to a deter*
mining voice in matters absolutely vital lo their own welfare and progress.
Thai unity essential lo Canada's all-round development and prosperity
as a nation can never be realized unless the East abandons its present selfish
and nrroganj overlordshlp, li is ihe Eastern attitude that, provides fuel for
lhe spirit of bitterness which it would be Idle to dmy does exist in the West.
11 Easl and Wesl are to grow together, ihe one aiding and assisting the oilier,
there must be a radical change ol allilude easl of the Great Lakes.

SPRING IMPURITIES
DUE TO POOR BLOOD
A Tonic Medicine a Necessity at This
Season
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are an all-
year-round Ionic for lhe blood and
nerves. But they are especially valuable in Ihe spring when the system is
loaded with impurities as a result of
(he indoor life of lhe winter months.
There is no other season when the
blood is so much in need of purifying
ami enriching, and every dose of these
pills helps to enrich tiie blood. In
the spring one feels weak and tired—
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills give strength.
In the spring Hie appetite Is often
poor—Dr. Williams' Pink Pills develop the appetite, (one the stomach
and aid weak digestion. II is in Ihe
spring lhat poisons In the blood find
an outlet in disfiguring pimples, eruptions and boils—Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills clear the skin because they go
to the root of the trouble in tlie blood.
In the sluing anaemia, rheumatism,
Indigestion, neuralgia and many other
troubles are most persistent because
of poor, weak blood, and it is at this
time when :.U nature takes on new
life lhat the blood most seriously
needs attention, Some people dose
themselves with purguilves, but these
only further weaken themselves. A
purgative merely gallops vthrough the
system, emptying Uie bowels, bul does
not help the blood. On lhe other
hand, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills enrich
the blood which reaches every organ
ill Ihe boili. bringing new strength
and vigor lo weak, easily llml men,
women ami children. Try Dr, Williams' Pink Pills llils spring—Ihey
will noi disappoint you.

Western Prairie Provinces
Have Created Huge Market
For Eastern Canada s Industries
In Canada the development of natural resources and the advance of
manufacture are closely related, Tho
rapid settlement of Hie prairie provinces, nnd the invasion of the pulpwood forests—lho iwo mosl prominent
features of Canadian development
during the present century—have been
outstanding, but til the same tlmo not

growth which hits', and ls, laking place
111 Ihe pulp and paper-making industries.
A wealth of llgtires mlghl he marshalled lo Illustrate the growth of
manufacturing within the past twenty
years or so. For instance, ihe total
value of goods manufactured in Canada, as reported In 1920, was moro
lhan eight times as greal its tlie census returns show for 1900, Such statistics lllelely suggest lhe (Ktent of
progress. Owing to the variations
In census methods, the rise in prices
and so on, they give a rather exaggerated measure of growth. Taking the
other extreme—the most conservative
lest—the number of persons reported
as being engaged in manufacturing
pursuits doubled in lhe twenty-year
period.
The exact extent of growth, how-
-ever, is not the only consideration, ll
is equally Important to nolo.that, the

geographically ami otherwise, it is
true that both Montreal and Toronto-
Canada's gteut industrial centres—reported more capital invested in manufacturing tn 1920 tluin was shown for
Ihe whole country lu 1800, but tlu
smaller cities hare not been eclipsed.
Twenty years ago only four cities in
the Dominion were credited with n
manufacturing output of n/valua ex-
 ding  ten million  dollars whereas.
Iii Hie la!"st returns, over fifty cities
equalled thai figure, about thirty
doubled and nineteen trebled 11.
Not only geoginphtculy bul in iho
nature of enterprise as well has Canadian manufaclurlng growth been widely distributed. No one or two classes
of Industry have entirely outstripped
the others, Tin: industries producing
textile and metal ami chemical guods,
as well us those finishing vegetable,
animal and wood products, have shown
excellent progress. , For Instance the
Industries manufacturing vegetable
products such as Hour, ..ugar and tobacco, look Ill's! place in 1920 in point
of gross value ot output, hut lhe "iron
und steel" Industries led In number of
persons employed, while tile "wood
and impel" group surpassed all others
with respect lo file net value added to
lhe raw materials by manufacturing
processes.
The variety of factors, that have impelled explain the breadth and balance
that have marked the growth of manufacture.
First, the settlement of the prairies
gave a powerful impetus to countless
Industries—producing a huge supply
of raw materials for Hour mills, packing plants anil other, industries finishing farm products, and at lhe same
time creating a large new market for
the machinery, textile, rubber, leather,
furniture and other factories of Eastern Canada. The influence of this
prairie market l"is radiated In every
direction. The purchasing power of
the western sales territory is studied
willi the keenest eye by the manufacturers of almost anything from plows
to pianos.
Secondly, the rise ot manufacturing
in the Dominion owes much to the
wonderful advances made since Hie
opening of tlie century in the use of
electric power. The advances along
these lines have enabled Canada to
realize upon her unexcelled water-
power resources, and hydro'-clectrlc
power has proved a unique asset. Since
1900 the total wnterpower harnessed
has increased Horn about 150,000 to
nearly 3,000,000 horsepower, serving a
variety of uses that touch practically
Hie whole Hold of manufacturing industry. Not only is the investment
in electric light and power enterprises
in Canada greater than in any< oilier
branch of manufacture but, further,
every large extension of walerp
development has brought In its train
a series of subsidiary Industries.
Adding to the opening of the west
and the Dominion's happy position
wllh regard to hydraulic resources,
two other factors of primary importance have contributed to the advance
In manufacture. One Is (lie Influence
of American industries in establishing
branch factories In the Dominion. The
growing value of the Canadian market,
the advanlage of location for trade
with other pnrts of tho British Empire, the availability of raw materials,
and so on, have diawn hundreds of industries of American parentage. Such
subsidiary concerns, backed by the
capital, experience and directing force
of sirnng parent companies, have given the ranks of Canadian manufacturing Industry many of lis most valuable recruits.
Again, the war with Its multiple do-
mnnds tested the resourcefulness of
Canadian initiative as never before,
und revealed an Unexpected capacity
for complex and specialised manufacture. Some of lhe new Industries
then created have not been able to
survive under pence lime trade conditions, but Hie net result has been a
permanent gain of no small Importance in the diversifying of Canadian
mill and factory output.

All Canada Watches the Crop
Western prosperity has become a
barometer for business throughout
the Dominion. Tlie whoat crop Is of
vital concern to business from Hall-
lax to Vancouver. No other item of
Canadian production, says Ihe Intelligence Service, Is winched wllh lhe
same degree of national interest thai

western crops front the time Ihey are

All    popular    songs are composed
and some are decomposed.
The phenomenal increase in lhe volume of immigration now reaching our
shores presents a subjeel of immense
Importanci to the thinking people ol
Canada.
Immigration Is generally recognized
as one of 'our'social problems," bul
noi everyonn 1'iiillzes thai, hy Immigration, Canada is building up a new
nalional Hie. In a normal family,
each child may be n garded as a
"prpblom.."; bul when ihe family is increased also by adoption, an entirely
new group of "problems" is Introduced Inlo the family circle. The immigrant Is an adopted citizen, and brings
wllh hinv among his "effects" a trunk
full of new nalional responsibilities.
Social workers are, perhaps, a little inclined lo view immigration by its
failures rather than by iis triumphs.
The individual of British or Anglo-
Saxon slock, who "makes good," i.s
promptly and easily absorbed Inlo the
fabric of Canadian life; contributes to
the taxes; casts an Intelligent, 'vote;
and requires—no "specialized" treatment. Tlie social workers are hardly aware of his arrival. The. immigrant who drifts into their purview is
likely to be the ono who lias some
physical or intellectual handicap, possibly only that of a foreign language
which places him at a disadvantage in
competition with those who can speak
and read English, but more oil en lhe
failure of the Immigrant lo "make
good" ls connecled with some physical defect, Ihrough which lie becomes
a public charge or an unit in tlie statistics of correctional or remedial Institutions. Unfortunately, ihere are
no statistics of the Immigrants who
succeed and become "our leading citizens," so lhat the record of immigration, as found In Ihe reports of social
work, is apl to be somewhal pessimistic in lis outlook.
It Is therefore peculiarly interesting
to find In the proceedings of the convention of the Social Service Council
of Canada just published, a suggestion
for the welfare of the immigrant
W'htCh involves tne selling up of new,
specialized machinery for Canadian-
foation, but: simply A more profitable
use of our existing system of education.
Tlie suggestion is so simple that, at.
first sight, It may appear unimportant;
merely a recommendation that. Hie
Federal Government should make provision for ascertaining, as far ns possible, the educational standing of Immigrants and should turn over this
information to the provincial governments, In order lhat it may be mnde
available for use by the Departments
of Education and Health In each province.
When the final destination happens
to be a city or town with a highly
organized system of education and
public health, lhe problem of assimilation ls likely to be dealt with by
those more or less expert wllh il, but
our Immigration policy Is aimed nt
peopling the remoter districts of the
country where lhe local representation
of the systems of health and education 's often not so competent to deal
Willi the reception of tlie foreign im
migrant, in such conditions much
might be done were lhe provincial
authorities informed of the arrival oi
a group of Immigrants who were not
likely lo III quickly and naluralt) into
existing local circumstances. Information as to educational standing
might reveal the presence. In such a
group .of a teacher who mlghl he, in a
very real sense, the "key man" io
open ihe way to assimilation.
No  douhl.   Ihere   will   he   opposition
lo such a proposal. "Immigration is
a federal mailer," is a slatemenl frequently made ami partially IrUe, hut
since the British, Norlh America Act
explicit)- defines lhe scope of provincial Immigration, this statement
should not preclude co-operation between the federal and provincial governments.
"There is no such Information provided in the ships' manifests witli regard lo Immigrants" is an objection
which is only lo be reckoned as final
by those (and they are not. few) who
appear to think that the manifests
now contain "all things necessary to
the salvation" of the imniigrnnl, and
that there is something sacrillgious in
suggesting that they be changed.
Tho possession of such Intormatlon
by lhe provincial governments would
not only bring the immigrant lo the
notice of tho departments of health
and education, as represented by the
public health nurse and teacher, but.
also within the sphere of lhe churches
and oilier voluntary social agencies
wllh which, lo an Increasing extent,
the more alert, governmental departments are co-operating.
Recent explorations In lhe heart of
Australia have resulted In the discovery of a hitherto unknown freshwater
lake witli a circumference, in the
rainy season, of twenty miles. The
surface was described by the explorers as "a moving mass of ducks."

is the month] ]of flowers and hope, |
nnd  It  seems  this  Is analaffous  to  the
quately express the depths of the all*
encompassing lovo of a mother. A
man may break every law of man, he
may become as a pariah among his
follows ; but, if he have a mother
living, he has one refuge to which ho
can always go, sure of] a loving welcome, it may ,be that, through years
of disappointment, hla conduct hot
graven lines of sorspw on that beloved face, lacerated a thouand times
that trusting, hopeful heart, but un
worthy as he may have become, even
such a man as this can return to
Mother with the certainty that she
will have for him the same tender
solicitation and love that marked her
care In his infancy.
If I were damned of body and soul,
A mother's love would make me whole.
If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
A mother's tears would reach down
to me.
Possibly it la one of the tragedies
of the world that the praises of Mother are too often Unheralded and unsung. The outstanding qualities of
motherhood are self-denial and self-
effacement. You will not find the
great mothers of the world among the
harridans who disgrace womanhood
and motherhood by shrill platform
demands for women's rights. You
will not find them among the garrulous class of women who harangue
for -birth control, and,j childless themselves, elect to dictate to more fortunate women the proper way to rear
children, The great mothers of the
world,, thank God, are the mothers
that we all remember, gentle and lov-
isg and kind. The mothers who kissed
our childish hurts, who smoothed out
for us the fancied troubles of Impatient youth, and sent us! out into the
world equipped to succeed, if we
would only apply the patient and
loving training that had been ocre
every   step   of   the   way.       ,
Tito thought of Mother cannot long
leave any man or woman, and noj particular Mother's Day is necessary to
keep green in our memories all that
Mother has meant for us. It's just
the thought of a graceful tribute, that
on this one certain day in May tlie
whole country In unison should pay
particular  homage  to Mother.
It's mighty fine on this day to weal
a rod flower t'lpresslve of the warm
love of living mothers, and a white
one in loving memory of the purity
and goodness of the mothers who
have passed on ; but it seems to me
that the real tribute should go further than this, and that the greatest
possible tribute anyone can Pay to
Mother Is to try each day with all
his or her might to somewhat approximate the kind of -man or woman
Mother hoped and Prayed and labored
so hard for usi to become.
KY MOTHER,
Oh, Mother mine, so dean to me,
May tho stars be kind that shine on
thee •'
May   He   keep   you   safe,   who   reigns

May  Hq guard  you safe by His holy

love  for  me,
And   that  love   Is  more   than  all  else
to mo ;
In   the   midst   Of   sin,   in    tho    weary

That love shall be my guiding light.

n-a.i referred to Coun. Gamble who
has already vastly Improved the
road.
Mr. James Best came forward with
a request for the repair of the Haney
road to facilitate the path to righteousness via St. Andrew's church,
and found he had been forestalled
by his hopeful, sen. Councillor Walter
Best's grading und gravelling the
road. Mr. Best senior smiled be-
nlgnantly and Invited the "chip of
the old block" lo dinner.
A petition from the residents easl
j of Webster's Corners for the extension of the rural mall delivery one
mile was ordered to be forwarded to
the Postmaster Genera] at Ottawa.
and a copy sent to Mr, Elgin Munro,
M.P., both with the council's endorsement. Councillor Gamble explained
that Iho petition would have been
presented before, bul the petitioners
thought Ihey were already included
in the route. Now that the delivery
Is dally their Inclusion was morn Important even If ;i necessitated closing the branch post office.
Mr. W. H. George wrote that tho
council take advantage of the government dredge being In the neigh-
hood to level the road on the town
line road east of his property, about
100 yards, where It deflected the
water from the Lillooet river over
the centre ot hi:, farm. It would also
save the road from washouts In 'lood
time. He also suggested the council
open the dredge cut on the road allowance and put the water where It
belonged as it was about four feet
higher when the water was normal.
He said It was now ten years since
the Maple Ridge council began to
"monkey" with this road In order
to destroy his farm and it was about
time to fix tt.
Coun. Best remarked they were
not in the Dyking construction line
at present.
The council discussed the situation,
as complying with Mr. George's request meant damage apparently to a
neighbor's property, Mr. Reddicllffe's
and bringing that gentleman's wrath
upon their heads.
Finally the clerk was instructed
to reply in regard to continuing the
dyke to the Townllne road that if
Mr. George and Mr. Reddlcllffe came
to terms as to what was required the
council would consider the proposition  on a  proportionate basis.
The Department of Public Works
through Mr. E. R. Taylor, confirmed
the arrangement with the council to
take over the control of the secondary highway In the municipality.
They also asked for the $1500 contribution of the council and authority to Mr. Taylor to regulate the
extraordinary traffic on the road.
The council agreed to each request.
Authority from the Forestry department was handed to Councillors
Gamble, Owen and Blois to issue fire
permits in each of their respective
wards, 3, 4 and 5.
Messrs. Kilam and Beck forwarded
a cheque for $336.30 payment of the
purchase~of tax sale lands by their
client, Mrs. Catherine Martin, with
a request that it be assessed in the
circumstances as improved land.
The Union of B. C. Municipalities
Informed the council of the annual
convention at Penticton; that a
scheme for the broadening of the
basis of taxation would be submitted by the Associated Property Owners; invited resolutions and payment
of the council's subscription of $20.
The council Instructed that the coh-j
ventlon aid them In their fight for
telephone extension.
Mr. J. West appealed In regard to
the Lillooet river dredging scheme
which meant the protection and
practically reclamation of some 1600
acres. He was interesting tho provincial government In the matter and
thought they were favorable to the
scheme. He was also given to understand that the operations of the B. C.
E. R. Company would eliminate future floods to a great extent.
The Reeve was also impressod
with the favorable view of Dr.
Sutherland, minister of public works,
In regard to the removal of jams and
logs In the river and straightening
Its course. He had made no promise
but he thought the fact that, the vicinity was well populated nnd settled
would have Its proper effect. The
vast Improvement effected on the Coquitlam river by the clearing of the
Jams and deepening and straightening that river's course was cited as a
precedent.
Mr, West will continue his efforts
to bring the project to fruition.
Mr. Vernoa Edge discussed with
the council the subject of raising the
Wilson rond and widening it during
the presence of the dredge in Ihe
locality. The South Lillooel periodically washed the gravel from the
road, made holes In It nnd generally
tore II up. He estimated roughly Ihe
cost at from $2110 to $.'1110 and suggested It bc defrayed proportionally
hy the council, and himself.
Tho council decided lo lnspoct the
road and surroundings, which they
did, und In a subsequent discussion
agreod to mako a special appropriation to Councillor Best of $200 for
the work of raising und widening
the Wilson road for a length of some
1000 reel.
Another Inspection wus made of
tho conlrnct. work on tho Week's
road washout. As a result they wore
Instructed to widen and grade the
road additionally, to the satisfaction
of Councillor Best. The contract
price or $7li0 to which Mr. J. nest,
Pitt Meadows and Maple Rldgo contribute a third each, would then bo
paid.
Messrs. Matchett, Scott and Mus-
salem. appeared ns a deputation lo
again urge In the extension ot the
McKechnle road and connection with
the Ahornelhy nnd Lougheed Camp.
The sound arguments In favor nf
this project do not reqnlro repetition nor their acceptance by the
council. Tho difficulty is tho money
■—there's the rub".
The Reeve said the Important
part was to get tho money before
thoy started.
Councillor Gambia thought the
work could be commenced now on
a preliminary scale.
Councillor Best would be willing
to give $100 out of his appropriation. The road would be a benefit
to settlers delivering produce at the
camp.
Coun. Gamble—"And also facilitate settlers getting to work there."
There was about 2 1-2 miles to construct, he thought, but was not sure
exactly, the distance from McKechnle corner to the camp.
Coun. Best—The engineer estimated tbe cost at $2300 approximately but ot that Abernethy and
Lougheed would contribute in work
some $1200 for the cut on the hill
and he thought they would not stick
at that.     .
The Reeve discoursed on the value
of the road ns a means of opening
up the district. -There was only a
trail  existing at present.
Further deliberation will be hold
later.
Mr. S. Genge reported the evidence ready and; adequate for the
action against the B.C.E.R. company
for a breach of their agreement
There was no doubt the agreement
for which the franchise was granted
had not been lived up to by the
company.
A committee consisting of tho
Reeve, Councillors Best and Blois
were appointed to accelerate the
bringing on of the action and presenting the case to counsel.
A letter from Mr. M. BMl wo?
read courteously requesting thai
$100 be spent on his road. Thc
clerk was instructed to reply that
$30 had been appropriated for the
road and that if funds permitted an
additional appropriation later would
be made.
On the motion of Councillor Owen
Mr. Vernon Edge will be Instructed
to survey a road into Mr. FIngland's
property, off Webster road. The
right of way would be donated by
an arrangement with Mr. Flngiand
and Mr. Bell.
Oiling the roads was discussed as
was done lagt year and prices will be
obtained fof the stuff from the oil
companies.
Bylaws concerning the revenue
and percentage added if the taxes
were not paid in tbe time set forth
were finally passed.

With renewed l.optj they resumed
their advance. Settling iuio a steady
caniNi', miles ol' prulrie were passed
in silence. Alter three hours of
steady travelling, Ahey came to ihe
stretch oi" broken prairie, where Ihe
outlaws bad slopped for rest and refreshments. Here they also stopped
to water and food their horses and
give them a short rest. Thej* estimated that u two hours ride? would
bring them to the vicinity of the
Souris River.
Their next two hours ride proved
uneventful. When, according to
their calculations, they were wilbin
about two miles of Ihe valley, to escape detection, they decided to make
a detour and approach the river some
distance to the oast of the point towards which lhe trail of the bandits
led. Wiih this object In view, they
turned lo their left nnd followed a
slighl depression in the land, evidently
a waler run, or coulee, which they
judged would lead to the valley to Ihe
south. In this they were not mistaken, lor, as they proceeded, It became
deeper wiih more or less scrub willows growing along the bottom of ii.
' This offered more or less cover for
Ihem as they continued to approach
the valley.
By following lhe windings of ihe coulee, which deepened the further Ihey
advanced, Ihey at last emerged from
its mouth as it cut into lhe high banks
of the Souris Valley. Down the sides
of the valley they carefully worked
their way till Ihey gained the level
ground beneath. Here, in a sheltered nook, protected from view by lhe

surrounding I lees and underbrush,
they held a consultation to formulate
their plans of procedure from this
point. They concluded that the camp
of lhe outlaws must be at least two
j miles to ihe west of their present
I position. They accordingly decided
j to work their way carefully in that
! direction, hugging the hillside as
j closely as possible, and, at the same
i lime, keep under the cover afforded
j by the underbrush and trees that grew
j on the bottom flats. Acting according to these plans, they proceeded ou
their way, keeping, at lhe same lime,
a sharp lookout lo avoid discovery.
They felt certain thai I be outlaws
would have sentinels posted against
surprise and attack.
Finally they came lo a spot Ihal was
well protected from view on all sides.
Considering it. a safe and well secluded spot, they decided to leave their
horses, to" "permit them lo carry on
further observations without their
encumberance. Leaving them tethered lo graze, they took their firearms
and cautiously advanced. Keeping
well under cover, Ihey made their
way slowly along. Finally they came
across the trail by which the bandits
bad descended lhe side of the valley.
Realizing that Ihey must be now fairly close up to their camp, they decided lo proceed no farther in that direction. Ronald proposed lo his companion that he take a safe position,
concealed in the underbrush, and keep
a sharp lookout for any movement
lhat might take place. He, himself,
would climb ihe bill and take observations wiih his field glasses from Ihe
higher ground with a view fo gelling
the exact location of the camp.
Leaving his rifle with Mr. Fraser,
Ronald ventured on alone. After cautiously ascending the hill, he worked
his way up io a point where he almost
had a clear view of the valley through
his field glasses. As far as he could
see from his position there was no
sign of man nor beast within his
range of vision. A curve in the valley, about a half a mile lo the west of
him hid from view a section of it
lying beyond. He, accordingly, decided lo work bis way along the brow
of the hill to the projeciing point of
lhe curve from where, he ibought, he
could get a broader view along lhe
length of lhe valley in bolh directions.
As much open ground lay between
him and lhe potnl he wished to reach,
he decided lo make a detour along the
prairie, In order to reach it, from ihe
rear by creeping along in ihe grass in
the most exposed places. This meant
a tedious undei hiking and a dangerous one, ihal would lake some lime to
achieve. lie, however, decided to
lake ihe chance, even al Ihe risk of
exposing himself io lhe danger of discovery. It took him nearly an hour
lo accomplish bis purpose, bjii eventually BUCCQi tied in safely reaching lhe
desired position. In a short lime be
had examined all lhe section of the
valley visible Irom Ihal point of vantage, Si ill he could see no sign of
[lie camp.
While he commanded a good view
of lhe valley, ye! there .was a seelion
close beiienih his poinl of observation that he was unable lo flee owing
io a shelving jiroJGcllon of the bank
aboul fifty feel below him. To enable him lo gel a belter and closer In
view of lhe ground at the base of Ihe
hill, he made his way down lhe sleep
dec]Ino to Llils shelving bank, which
he was able to do successful**' und"i'
cover of buffalo wllows lhat grew in
the slighl depressions on tbe hillside.
Ills efforts wore rewarded by discovering ihe camp, ami), at lhe same
lime obtaining n good view of the recess In lho embi.nknunt in which ll
was located. It lay not more lhan
four hundred yarns beneath and to
ihe wesl of him. As be examined
the ground ihrough his field glasses,
he could see a IHUilber of horses concealed i'l Hie b''LBh. He also had a
clear view of lhe open space Within
llils enclosure, where the lenl was located. He couhi distinguish three
men, two reclining on tin1 grafts, and
lhe ihlrd lei«nMv saunierlng about.
To lhe right was tin; tent, but, apparently there was no one in lis vicinity.
Well satisfied with his Investigations
so far, hi' decided to remain where he
was io await further developments,
The two men, who wen' ml using, he
accounted for by assuming Ihal ihey
would naturally be posted as sentinels.
But, so fai, he could sec no sign of the
missing girl. He was, however, well
satisfied thai she was iher\ and, acting ou ibat conviction he kepi his attention livened m Ihu lent and
grounds.
Me remained stationed in this position lor aboul Iwo hours, when he was
finally rewarded bv seeing Ihe object
ol his search coining out of the tenl.
She siood for a few moments al lhe
entrance, evident h regarding and
Watching Iter raptors. Then she
Bt rolled aboul and look a circle around
to lhe rear of the tent. Finally silling down and reclining on the grass
she remained in this position for some
lime. Later she arose, aud sauntering about the tent, she finally came
back from the rear and re-entered It.
Cheered nnd encouraged by Ihe
sight   of her,   lie continued   to  closely
watch her every movement. wiih
his glasses focused on her and her
surroundings, he took In lhe smallest
details. The young woman who hail
fascinated his imagination, and the
vision of whom had never left him
since be accidenlly met her ou the
hail lhe previous evening, was within
a few hundred yards of him, so far
safe, bill yel held caplive by a villainous gang of outlaws. As he sat
and watched her, he chafed under lho
self-restraint, imposed by his conviction, that an attempt at rescue In Ihe
open would prove futile. In his momentary eagerness he deplored Ihe
oversight of leaving his trusty rifle
behind, even ihough his heller judg
men! discountenanced the nollon he.
entertained of being able to pick the
outlaws off one by one, and thus res
cue her from their clutches. But
seiting aside all rash schemes or an
advance in the open, which would only
expose him 'to unavoidable dangers,
he coniinued his observations of the
movements in the camp. His better
judgment counseled him to wait, till
the darkness of iate night would enable them to achieve their purpose by
strategy. Under the cover thus afforded them their chances against Ihe
odds of numbers would be equalled,
As twilight was deepening and lhe
shadows of evening enveloped the
valley, he saw the two missing men
return to camp. They approached
and spoke textile man whom, from his
action, lie had taken to be the leader.
Apparently acting on Hie information
given, he motioned" to tlie other men
lo approach. Acting on his evident
instruction they watered and tethered their horses on the more open
ground. When ibis was done, he dis-
l inguished them In 1 he gloaming
making their beds for the night's
camping. As this preparation had
an important bearing on his own plans
for the nigh!, he, in Ihe semi-darkness,
tried io take in all lhe details. He
noted lhe location of their beds with
respect to the tenl, and all the movements of Ihe leader till -he settled
down reclining in front of if.
Convinced that no immediate danger threatened the girl, and satisfied
lhat he carried in his head Ihe plan
of the encampment, ha decided to return to Ids companion. Under cover
of the darkness be carefully worked
his way back lo ihe lop of the hill,
upon gaining which he made rapid
progress, and was soon able to join
his comrade, who was by now impatiently awailing his return.
Without wailing to exchange views,
they walked buck in silence to the
place where they had left Ihelr horses,
a few hours before. On reaching
Ihem ihey sat down to discuss the
situation, and to lay their plans for
action. Ronald gave in detail the
location and position of Ihe camp as
he had seen it. He pointed out the
position of the men, the tent, the man
on guard in front of it, and Ihe horses
grazing in lhe vicinity. Mr. Fraser,
Who had carried on some independent
investigations of his own, discovered
that the trail Ihe bandits followed
along lhe foot or the hill, from the
point they descended into the valley,
could be easily followed in Ihe dark.
They then decided that, along about
Ihe hour of midnight, they would work
their way along the irail to the edge
of the camping ground and, if all were
quiet, Mr. Frasi r would lake up a
position oul of sight, and be prepared

The Boy Scout Ideal
League of Nations Put Their Seal of
Approval on Movement
A   friend   who   Is
closely     conversant
with I lie methods of
the   League   of  Nn-
jsT/ tlons sent me lately
3:i»        'lis   congrafulalltfhs
"■""- on Ihe fact that the
league bad passed a
resolution Inviting
the governments of
all the member nations to facilitate, as
an interchange of
visits between the Boy Scouts, the
Girl Guides and students of the various countries, lie considered this a
particularly high tribute to our work
and to its ideals, more especially as
"students" had only been included in
the .recommendation as an afterthought.
The resolution was primarily framed on the deserts of the Scout movement. He said lhat the league realized the value or our training because
in its own work it is occasionally
liable itself to feel the want of Scout
upbringing among its own members.
Why? Because no country as far as
he knew had as yet included in its
school curriculum the one quality,
which above all others was most needed among mankind today, and which
alone lhe Scout and Guide movement
has taken up as the aim of its training, namely, in self-denial, service for
others.
Everywhere men are still being
trained in a school where self-interest
is taught as the motive, where efficiency for success in their career is
the first aim, where the higher quality
of submission of self to the. interests
of others Is omitted. It ls in this narrow upbringing lhat Ihe average man's
outlook on tbe world is at present
formed, hence rivalry, fear and
islrust between man*and man, class
and class, creed and creed, nallon and
nation; cult or self is the root of all
vll. Should his innate better sense
prevail, so lhat here and there an individual rises in spile of ll to be a
patriot, bis vision In very many cases
is sllll strenuously limited lo Ihe individual Interests of his own country.
Overstrong nalional patriotism is still
Inclined lo bind him lo a wider field,
that of world patriotism.
The Seoul's training Is In service,

Wearing  Military  Uniforms
Unauthorized    Persons    Who    Wear
Military   Clothing   Will   Be
Prosecuted
Prosecutions have been Instituted
by the Department of Nalional Defence against unauthorized persons
wearing military uniforms and clothing. During the past four years
Ihere has been an annual loss of the
department amounting to tens of thousands of dollars, due to military uniforms and clothing^lssued to Ihe personnel of the non-permanent active
militia being worn by them In lieu
ot civilian clothing. Although such
olsses are borne largely by the do
pertinent, officers commanding units
must bear a portion or Ihe cost of the
missing articles.
If these losses continue to occur It
will be necessary to lake some drastic action under the provisions of Ihe
criminal code In order to protect the
treasury and relieve commanding officers of this undue financial'hardship,
according to officials of the Department of* National Defence.
The unauthorized wearing of parts
of uniforms has become widespread,
due largel yto the quantities of surplus English military clothing being
sold by dealers in Canada. A recent
warning Issued by the department in
this /matter has brofght numerous
complaints from all parts of the coun
try. It Is pointed out by officials that
contrary to the current impression
there has been no extension of the
provisions of Ihe criminal code, and
the department merely draws attention of the public to laws that have
been In existence lor a number or
years.

Annual Production of Seventy
Million Dollars Worth of Unique Material.
A prominent lumber Importer
standing on the floor of the London
Timber Exchange—the greatest
wood buying centre in the world
said: "There are no substitutes for
the timber of British Columbia."
The present magnitude and vast
possibilities of the great lumber industry of British Columbia should be
a matter of pride and interest to
each and every one of its citizens.
It should be acclaimed by them as
no less priceless an asset than this
province's wonderful climate and unrivalled scenery, indeed even in these
two possessions British Columbia's
forest glory is an all Important adjunct.
The status of an industry Is determined by the supply of the raw material, the capital invested Iii its
manufacture and the value ot^the
product to the public.
Demand is for 80% Soft Wood.
This province has today between
$150,000,000 and $200,000,000 hard
cash actually sunk in the conversion
of one of earth's most unique natural
resources into world wide necessities o (the highest grade.
The truly fortunate position ot
British Columbia as a forest area ls
ter realized when two comparatively
unknown facts are brought forward
and emphasized.
Firstly: That less than one-third
of the world's lumber supply ls soft
wood and, secondly, that the demand
for soft wood Is four times as great
as that for hardwood.
Between a fifth and a quarter of
the whole area of British Columbia
ls forest land, to be more precise 60
million out of 226 million acres. This
huge territory contains half the soft
wood in the Dominion, one-third of
the British Empire's total supply and
about one-ninth of all the soft wood
on the surface of the globe.
It must be borne In mind that the
species indegenous to British Columbia are not the smaller, and common
conifers of Europe and Eastern Canada, but woods of outstanding properties such as the Imperishable Red
cedar, the unique aeroplane spruce
and that king of all soft woods,
Douglas fir. All of these trees represent the most desirable qualities
that soft wood can possess.
Continuous Supply Assured.
We are assured on the authority
of our forest authorities that the
annual growth of our timber exceeds the cut, and with proper care
it is safe to assert that a continuous
supply of our forest products will be
available to our posterity. What
Sweden has done for a thousand
years lu maintaining her timber
lands British Columbia can do also.
So much for the raw matreial and
Its valuable properties. The enormous Investment referred to above
maintains no less than 3,600 firms,
large and small, directly engaged in
the manufacture and distribution of
forest products of the annual value of
$70,000,000. These concerns are
numbered as under:
442 Sawmills, box mills, cash and
door plants, etc.
95 Shingle mills.
G Pulp and paper mills.
3640 Logging camps (including post
und tie).
208 Lumber    wholesale exporters,
dealers and timber brokers.
13 Forest products    manufacturing firms.
205 Wood yards.
A total of 3600 firms handling British Columbia forest products exclusively.
These figures show where tho Brl
tlsh Columbia logging nnd lumber
industry stands today and with tbe
encouragement of fresh capital and
a policy of preservation of our timber resources the future years should
see an expansion of great extent
tending to the population Increasing and wealth ot the citizens of British Columbia.

BASEBALL LEAGUE FORMED
EMPIRE   DAT   PLAITS
At a meeting of the Agassis Baseball Association a four-team league
was foiined within the Valley. It was
thought by having a local league more
young players would have a chance to
display the brand of ball they were
capable of, and, with, the coaching of
tho more experienced baseball players,
Agassiz would be able to develop more
teams such as that of 1920, which was
aB good as any amateur organization
In the  Province.
Tho league comprises teams from
Hatrlson Hot Springs, the Central oi
Town Team, the East End Team and
the High School learn, The following delegates from each team have
been instructed to meet Mr, Geo. Ogllvle, manager of the league, to arrange the schedule of games for the
coming season : Mr. H. Graham, Mr.
J. Gillis, Mr. K. Alexander nnd Andy
Pollock.
Keen interest Is being1 taken by the
different .managers In getting as
strong teams as possible, and the
public Is assumed of a hard-fought
struggle  for league  honors.
Tho officers elected were : Hon.
