The Annual Flower Show
of the AgassizWomen's Institute was held at the Agricultural hall on Friday, July 11th
It was altogether a very successful affair, reflecting much
credit on both organizer and
exhibitor, also saying much
for the energy inspiring the
flower- lovers of the Valley,
who, in spite of their many
duties to home and family,
had found time to guard and
watch over their flowers and
bring their blooms to such per
fection. The well filled tables
would have done credit to a
much larger place and more
leisured class. The little horticultural show was prettily
staged and artistically arranged.
The flower of the Institutes
of Canada (the Sweet Pea)
was especially noticeable both
for variety and beauty. Messrs
H. and F. Sweatman's display
of annuals was particularly
imposing (carrying off first
prize) which together wiih
their many other exhibits in
the flower line won much admiration.
The exhibit from the Government Experimental Farm
was quite wonderful, a lovely
mass of blooms perfectly arranged. The members of the
Institute owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Hicks, the superintendent, and to Mr J. Fraser
and his assistants for their
united efforts producing such
results. Worthy of remark
among the minor exhibits was
an arrangement of ferns entered by Master Harold MacCallum, a most artistic design.
This was shown with the children's school work, which was
also a very creditable exhibit.
The decorated tables won a
good deal of favorable comment, and was closely contested, the first prize being a
water color picture entitled
"Evening" Mt. Cheam, by C.
Warburton Young, which was
won by Mrs. Horwell in a
cleverly thought out creation
in mauve flowers and Maiden
Hair ferns. The thanks of the
Institute are also due Mrs. J.
McPherson for.her demonstra1
tion in home economics and
child welfare, also to her
young son for his untiring efforts in explaining the same.
During the afternoon tea
was served in the Institute
rooms.
The prizes were presented
by Mrs. Ogilvie and the Pres.
Mrs. Fooks, together with Mrs
Jenkins (secretary) to whom
the success of the flower show
was mainly due, and who in a
short speech thanked all who
had assisted in this yearly
floral effort of the Institute,
especially mentioning the Gov
ernment Farm and Messrs. F.
and H. Sweatman for help
generously rendered.

CHAPTER 1.
Chance of Morpheus
From Uie "dig-In" ol the snow-bank
nihere lu' had spenl the blizzard nlghl
In comparative comfort, Constable La
Marr of Un' Royal Mounted looked out
ujinn a full-grown day. The sioriu
thai, had driven him to shelter had
pnssed, or ai least was laking "11 rest.
For once lu' hud overslept am! where
days, even in winter's youth, are but
seven hours long, the fault caused
him chagrin.
That a "Mountie" in close pursuit
of a murder suspeel should have made
such a slip was disconcerting even to
one so young as l.a Man', lie found
little consolation In the fad lhat when
he had enlisted in the Force he hail
not dreamed of an Arctic assignment,
bul hail expected one of those goyly
uniformed details in .Monlreal or Quebec.
His concern, il lhe news ever leaked out, was of the reaction upon his
immediate superior. Staff-Sergeant
Russell Seymour. But small chance
of that leakage unless he himself
weakened—or strengthened—nnd tested the adage that confession is good
tor the soul. Seymour, n grimly
handsome woif of the North in command of the detachment post at Armistice, was now iwo months absent on
an Irksome detail of snow patrol, one
that should nnvc lallen to the rookie
constable, except for his inexperience.
La Mnrr stamped oul of the snow-
hole that had sheltered him and restored circulation by vigorous gymnastics. Light as was his trail equipment, being without sled or dogs, he
had not suffered, having learned rapidly the first protective measures of the
Arctic "cop."
He was about to make a belated
breakfast from his emergency pack
when his glance chanced toward the
north and focused upon a furred figure headed down Ihe snow ruff on n
course that would bring him within
easy reach.
"Aye. not so bail!" he congratulated audibly. "I gel me man hy sleeping on his nail!"
lie chuckled as he watched the
snow-shoed Eskimo stumble dlrectl)
toward the trap thai was sel fur hint
by chance of .Morpheus.
Yel the young constable tool; no
chances.
A murder had been committed two
days before at Armistice, almosi within lhe shadow of I lie police post. Th"
crime seemed u pariicularly atrocious
one lo him from the fact that a white
man. a trailer's clerk, had been the
victim. Any Eskimo who would go
to such lengths was ellher desperate
or Insane. I.a Man- fell called upon

He had not n doubt that the native
approaching was his quarry, any morn
than he had of that quarry's guilt. He
wondered if the slogan of the Mounted applied In case one had to deal
witli au insane native. II would be
easy—and providentially safe—to wing
ihe oncomer, undoubtedly unaware of
the nearness of a Nemesis.
But the training at the Regina
school of police that a "Mountie" never fires Hist is slrlel and Impressive.
Constable Lu Mnrr could not take n
pot shot even wllh lhe Intent only to
wound the flounderer.
Nexi moment surprise caught him—
surprise that Avlc, ihe red-handed culprit, was lighting Ills way back to
camp. Bul wait, he'd have to revise
that thought for this particular murder had been done in a peculiar native
fashion that shed no blood. Anyhow, why should one so obvlouslj
guilty of killing n while man In n
bronze man's country be headed tor
ward tlie police post from which he
had made a clean gel-away?
No answer came to La Mnrr. He
merely wailed.
The Eskimo floundered on.
Tlie constable's concealment was
neat enough In a country where all Is
while. It was better even than hush
or shrub, for they were so rare as to
be open In suspicion. At Just Ihe
right second he lunged forward and
took the native entirely by surprise.
The two went over in a flurry of snow.
For a moment lhe Eskimo si niggled
fiercely,possibly thinking lhat llils
fur-clad asasilani was an Arctic wolf.
Bill his resistance censed on recognizing he was in human grip.
La Mnrr yanked his captive to his
feel and searched I'oi wen pons, finding
none. Then he remembered lhe rules
of the Ottawa "red book" and pronounced the statutory warning.
"Arrest you, Avlc, in the name of
lhe king; warn you that anything you
say may he used against you. D'ye
understand?"
As he asked (his last, which is not
a pari of lhe olilcial warning, he realized that Avie did not.
"Barking sun-dogs, why didn't the
good Lord provide one language lor
everybody?" he complained. "Anyway, there ain't much chance of my
understanding anything you may say
against yourself. I'll tell It nil over
to you when I get you to the post.
Now we'll mush!"
"Ugh—yes," grunted the Eskimo,
seemingly undisturbed.
The young constable was puzzled
by lhe prisoner's demeanor, lie stared at the man. whose stolid expression was heightened by thick lips and
high cheek-bones. Perhaps the na
live did nol know he was in the hands
of the police and on his way to pay
for lhe dreadful crime.
Raising his parkee, Ln Mnrr disclosed Hie scarlet tunic which he wore underneath. It was lhe color of authority In the far North; no Eskimo who
ever had seen it before could doubt it.
There was no gleam of intelligence
in the dark eyes Unit stared from behind narrow, reddened lids. There
dawned upon lhe constable a possibility. The Eskimo was snow blind under I lie curse of the Northland winter
which falls alike lo native and out-
lander, at limes. That would explain
his hack-tracking. Rather than wan-
di r ln circles over tlie white blanketed tundra until a miserable death came
to his rescue, he was hurrying back,
while a glimmer of sight yet remained, lo take his chances with Ihe mystery called "Law."
"Not a bad choice," thought La Mnrr
ns he siepped oul. ahead to brenk thc
trail lhat lhe night's blizzard lind covered.
After locking his prisoner in the
liny guard room, u part of the one-
story frame structure thai sheltered
ihe small detachment, the constable
started lor lhe post of Hie Arcilc
Trading Company a few hundred yards
away, lie wits young, Ln Marr, and

"You've gol n murderer, sum

slowness of speech so seldom accelerated ns lo be nn outstanding characteristic,     "But his name's not Avlc
nnd by no possibility could he have
been anything to do with the killing
of O'Mnlley."
"Then who the hell ," the constable began.
"This Is Olespe of the Lady Franklin band. For three weeks he's been
my prisoner. On lhe sled out thero
are lhe remains of the wife he killed
in un uttnek oNsenl-fed jealousy."
The chagrin of Conslnble Lu Marr
was written in gloom across u face
so lately aglow.
CHAPTER II.
The Eskimo Way
Grim, Indeed, had been Sergeant
Seymour's sledded return to his de-
tnchnient. For more than two hundred miles across the frozen tundra
he had driven his ghastly loud—the
murdered womun wrapped In deer
skills after the native custom, sew-
ed up In a tnrp nnd lashed to a komn-
tik, the Labrador sled lhat gives such
excellent service on cross-country
runs. All Ihis, thai lhe inquest which
tho Dominion requires, regardless ot
isolation, might be held in form ami
the case against Ihe uxoricide assured.
And out ahead, unarmed, nnd under
"open" arrest, lind mushed the murderer himself, breaking trail toward
his own doom. Often In the whirling
snow, Olespe had I n beyond his captor's sight. Bul never had he wavered from tho most feasible course lo
Armistice; always had he been busily
making camp when the dogs and their
official driver caught up nl. Hie appointed night-stop. No while man
could hnve been entrusted wllh such
"fatigue duty" under like circumstances. Three weeks of such opportunity for remorse musl have been loo
much.
But Seymour was mil thinking now
of this recent ordeal.
The case of Olespe, except for the
formalities of coroner's inquest, com-
milment and trial was settled. The
plight of his unhappy constable held
the pity of the sergeant, always considerate.
"I'm not blaming you, Charley," he
assured. "Until you've been up here
n few years, all Eskimos look right
much alike."
"Cnn't I stnrt nfter Ihe real Avlc nt
once," pleaded the constable. "I'll
make no second mistake."
Lu Marr wns ns enger ns a hound
held In leash nfter its nose hns rubbed
the scent. But he could not, just
then, bring himself to confess his
oversleeping.
Seymour did not answer nt once, but
set. nbout tnklng oft his heavy trail
clothes and getting into the uniform
of command. He was a Inrge built
mnn, but. lenn of the Inst ounce ot
superfluous flesh owing to the long
patrols that he never shirked.
The scarlet tunic beenme him.
Across the breast of It showed lines
of vnri-colored ribbons, for his service in France had been ns vulorous as
vigorous. He hud gone into the war
from his Yukon post and, almost
directly after the nrmistlce, buck Into
the Northwest Territories to establish
one of Ihe new stations of the Mounted ln the Eskimo country,
The green constable chafed under
the silence, but he did not make the
mistake of thinking It due to slow
thinking. Willi Seymour many had
erred in thnt direction to their sorrow. The sergennt certainly was
slow in speech but when he spoke he
said something. He might seem
tardy in action, but once started he
was as active as a polnr bear after a
seal.
"No hurry nbout taking after this
Avlc," he snld at lasl. "Likely he'll
not travel far this double-thermometer
weather," The reference was to a
jocular fable of the region that to get
lhe temperature one hnd to hitch two
Ihermometers together. "At worst
he cnn't get clear away—no one ever
does, except when old man Death
calches him flrsl. We'll hold our inquest, then I'll Issue a warrant."
"An detail me to servo It?" La
Mnrr's question hnd that breathless
Interrogation point of secret self-accusation.

A Marketing Expert
A. P. McLean, New General Manager
of Saskatchewan Co-operative
Creameries
The choosing of u new general man-
uger for the Saskatchewan Co-opera-
tlve Creameries, Ltd., Is n matter of
Importance to everyone interested in
co-opera live movements and marketings in Western Canada, and of very
special interest to all engaged In the
production of cream or the manufacture of creamery butter.
The Saskatchewan Co-oporativo
Crenmerles, Ltd., ls one of the largest
co-operative movements so far undertaken In Western Canada, and lis ultimate success or failure will have n
very marked re-action in the development of co-operntlve marketing, which
is felt by all who study farm problems with Impartial eyes, to be the
best hope of the farmers, not only of
Western Canada, but of the world.
The mnn v.iio has finally been selected to undertake the somewhat arduous task of managing this organization, which admittedly has not been
successful in its marketing undertakings in the past, ls A. P. McLean, who
has for the past ten years been a resident of Winnipeg, as manager for the
Cnnadian Packing Co., Ltd.. and who
has been ln the employ of that company for 29 years.
Mr. McLean has many qualifications
for his new position, but his present
employers and bis confreres ln the
trade all credit him with very special
abilities along marketing lines, which
will assuredly be a great asset ln his
new position.
AVhlle keeping closely ln touch with
marketing-Conditions, and possibly because of that close touch, he has Interested himself actively In those
schemes which have tended to give to
the three prairie provinces their present enviable position in the production
of high-class creamery blitler, namely
the grading of cream, the government
grading of butUr and the establishment of a uniform grade of butter for
the three western provinces.   •
With regard to the grading of cream,
Mr. McLean's stand has been that not
only ls It essential ln the production
of high-class export butter, but it is
the only means by which the producer, who is careful and particular about
his cream, giving time and thought to
producing the best, can receive tlie
just reward ot his efforts.
Mr. McLean ls also a strong believer ln the establishment of a top grade
of Canadian butter for export, a grade
thnt shall be the only one entitled to
bear the word "Canada" or "Cana-
dlnn," nnd of thc rigid Inspection of
butter, ch vse and eggs, so that the
word "Canada" or "Canadian" on
these products shall become as sure
an Indication of uniform excellence as

using Mllburn's Henrt and Nerve Pills.
When I came home from overseas,
ln 1920, my heart was very badly
affected by concussion, and my nerves
were a dreadful wreck. I was very
short winded, and could not possibly
sleep at night, ln fact, I was ln sucb
a condition I felt as If I did not wish
anyone to speak to me. I thought I
would try Mllburn's Heart and Nerve

I could enjoy a good night's rest as

The case of Mrs. Mary Tralnor. Perth,
Ont., shows the value of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills In cases of this kind. She
says:—"I hud not been feeling well
for some time und hud been gradually growing weaker. I found It very
hard to do my housework; hud severe
headaches nnd wns very pule. 1 took
doctor's medicine for some time, but
they did me no good. I wns growing
wealier and used to faint nnd take
dlzR- spells. In this condition I be

physician, R. V. Pierce, M. D., who
compounded them from health-giving
herbs and roots long used In sickness
by the Indians. Dr. Pierce's reputation ns a leading and honored citizen

That Montreal playgoers are literally packing their Orpheum Theatre at

to tho high standard of the entertainment offered and to tbe finished artistry of the famous Duffy stock players,
not the least popular of whom ls Donald Klrko.
Mr. Kirke ls not only a favorite on
the legitimate stage but ls a screen
player ot note, and it Is a further tribute to his consummate acting that,
even while tortured with stomach
trouble, nervousness and other Ills, he
kept "on with the play" day ln and
day out until lie found relief by taking
TANLAC.     As he says:
"My stomach had almost failed me
and I wonder now how I ever kept up
I ate so little. Nights I would toss
and turn for hours in nervousness;
piercing sick headaches made me suffer agony, and at times on the stage
I was so, nervous, weak and trembly
that I could hardly remember my
lines.
"I would have given a thousand dollars to get the relief Tanlac lias given
me for less than five dollars. My appetite was never better, I eat every
thing and have gained 12 pounds. I'm
never a bit weak or nervous, never
have a headache, and I feel fine and
dandy. I will gladly confirm these
facts by phone or letter."

Deep Waterway Project
Should Prove to be a Big Factor In
Development of the West
Word comes from Ottawa that the
report" of the Canadian commltteo appointed by the government to further
investigate the St. Lawrence-Great
Lakes deep waterway project, will bo
ready within a very few months. "The
government has followed a safe
course," says the Ottawa Citizen, "and
the premier has succeeded ln enlisting the services of some Canadians
of outstanding ability. Although
there ls already a very elaborate International commission's report unequivocally favorable to the Improvement that will permit ocean' tramp
vessels to sail through from the Atlantic to the head of the Great Lakes,
there has been practically no adverse
criticism of the government's action
in appointing a further investigating
body. It is affirmed in some quarters
that the St. Lawrence deepened
waterway will eventually prove to be
as Important as the C.P.R. In tho
commercial development of Canada.
One thing sure it will be by long odds
the greatest ecoromlc boon conceivable to the west, where It will enable
the farmers to save upwards of fifty
million dollars a year on transportation costs. It will cut out the exorbitant costs of rail shipments from
Georgian Bay ports and Buffalo to Hie
ports of Montreal and New York, and
give through water transportation to
Europe from Fort William nnd Port
Arthur. The financing of the project
will be taken care ot in its-entirety
through the development of hydroelectric energy, for which thero ls
such an urgent demand ln Ontario at
Hie present time. Canada, and especially Western Canada, will never
come lo u Hilly prosperous state of
growth and development until the enormous advantages of the deepened
waterway nre realized.—Swift Current

After spotting the B. C. Manufacturers five runs in the first

and held Hammond scoreless until
the fourth when Craig, Cross, nnd

In the Sixth Scott hit and stole 2nd.
Al. Mounger drove him in and Lewis
scored Mounger on a beautiful single to deep centre. In the remaining frames the baters were retired

Scott had a bad night at second,
booting three easy chances, but kept
up his good work with the hickory
Lewis and Cross also boosting their
averages. Norm. Goodall pulled a
couple of sensational catches, robbing Craig on one. Storme, ns Ump.

have a branch of thc B.C.E.Ry., for
—"whore's there's smoke there's

since hud such service, and it is

their energies.
An Electric tram line from New
Westminster to Mission City, would
domucli to enhance the settlements
on thc north side and accelerate
their advance. The big lumber, and

such a system    of    transportation.

Every  Britiih  Columbian'.  Duty  to

Lumber  Industry
SOCIAL AND PERSONAL
Every mnn nnd woman in British
Columbia should endeuvour to
realize what the Lumber Industries
mean to the community they live in
and should constitute themselves active boosters of B.C.Forest Products.
This is one of thc readiest ways in
which they can help the Industry that
has put this province on the map and
is busily engaged in keeping it there.
No merchandise, however unique,
can sell itself in these days of substitutes und keen competition. The
searching tnskof finding steady
markets for their products is perhaps
the most important the Lumbermen
of this Province are up against.
MARKET    EXPANSION
The maintenance of costly sales
forces and far-reaching market extcn
sion organizations is a very heavy
charge amounting to millions yearly
on the lumber and allied industries
of  British  Columbia.
New markets must be found and
old ones preserved. Agents at home
and abroad must be employed in
keeping open the channels along
which B. C. wood products are distributed to consumers in every part
of the world.
In exchange for these millions of
dollars spent in the marketing of our
forest products the people of British
Columbia receive what really amounts to their principal means of
support.
Every British Columbian should
therefore ask himself or herselfhow
best they can help out the industry
that means so much to tnem.

Many ol us have Imagined that
ours ls not a cathedral-building ago.
Twenty years ago most of us would
have said Hint never again would
a grout cathedral be built In the
British Isles. Yet twenty years ago,
to he exact, Liverpool started on her
project to build a cathedral, the first
portion of whii-ii will be dedicated mi
tlio 16th of July next In the pres-
i'U u of the King and Queen. And It
Is nn small buildliii; Liverpool Is
attempt Ing, but one which when OOm-
pli'ti'd will rank In size next lo St.
Peter's at Rome. Seville may equal
It. but It will bu bigger than Milan.
York Minister is our own biggest
oh ll roll ut presenl, bill. Liverpool
Cathedral will bo half us big again.
It will exceed St. Paul's by more
than Hint amount, It will bo moro
than double Westminster Abbey ln
oxtont and, compared with our two
modern cathedrals, it will ho flvo
times the slzo of Truro and three
times that of the Roman Catholic
Cathedral at Westminster. It Is,
therefore, an undertaking such ns
tlio Church of England hns not attempted slneo the Reformation and
lho  dissolution  of  the  monasteries.
That a modern seaport town—for
Liverpool, though It received a charter from King John, really dates as
a great port from the ond of tho
eighteenth century—should in such
recent years havo embarked on (his
great enterprise, with the faith that
it will bo finished, is evidence that
there has been a groat revival in
religious belief since the atheistic
eighties nnd the agnostic 'nineties
of last century. The cathedral project, too, has appealed to all classes
and to nearly all creeds. Large donations have been received from members of denominations outside the
Church ot England.
Though the element of size Is an
Important thing in a great building
like a cathedral, and ln the Middle
Ages we know there was great competition between towns and bishops
to build the bigger church, it is not,
of course, size which makes a
work of art. In our Gothic cathedrals In the past, what gave thein
life and significance was that though
all more or less alike, as one great
ship to another, and developing one
from the other, they were individually the work ot a vast number of
artist-craftsmen living In the town,
who put their best endeavors Into
the work they were doing for their
town's outstanding building. There
was no architect In our modern
sense, not only overlooking them
but providing them with full-sized
cartoons and drawings for everything
they did. All the various craftsmen
joined In malting the cathedral what
it was. but gradually, as the stone
construction got more and more
daring and consequently lighter, the
windows grew larger and larger until the artists in stained glass had
the greatest opportunities ot all
The church or cathedral became, as
has often been said, a jewelled stone
lantern, light nnd airy and open to
all, as it belonged to all, That was
not only a fine achievement but a
fine Ideal. In these days, however,
when the number ot artist craftsmen
has dwindled to vory small ilinien
slons, the architect has to take
everything into his own hands. He
has to design everything and to settle everything. The ideal he has to
interpret, too, is a different one. His
object today Is to make a refuge
from the town rather than .a meeting-place for everyone. His building
is to be a place of prayer within
the walls of which the world will be
shut out. He must use his art,
therefore, to produce a solemn, and
Inspiring atmosphere, and to do
this he must use his architectural
forms, his alphabet and grammar,
be they Gothic, Classical, or Byzantine, ln a new way. Only so can his
art be vital and expressive of our
own time, and only so, therefore, ul
tlmately  useful (o our development.
It is just iu this way thut Giles
Gilbert Scott has been so successful,
While using the old Gothic forms, he
has used them with a solidity,
strength, and Impresslveness that is
new to England, Although only lose
than a third nf his cathedral is built,
you feel, directly you push open tho
door in tlie temporary wall across
the building, lhat yon arc lu an Immense and Impressive structure.
Great piers rise up on all sides to
the vaulting without n break. There
are no detached columns anywhere,
but everywhere strength und rich
simplicity. At first, as you look towards tho nltar, you nee tin windows
except the vmt one over It. The
side windows are set back, as at the
new Westminster Cathedral, with
wing walls between them, loading to
tho great piers of the chancel. Thero
Is therefore not only a great play o!
light and shade but that sense of en.
closure, of tho world shut out, which
helps to mako the solemn atmosphere. Tho groat scale of tho partn
adds to this. An old cathedral would
have had eight to ten arches In the
chnncel nrcado, where Liverpool has
only three. Fo lofty Is thc building,
however, that these threo do not seem
of too wide a span. Tho result Is
thnt against such proportions the
human being feels his proper small-
noss. But at the eame time, so suave
arc tho lines, so beautiful is the
whole picture of vault, pier, window,
and nil tho rich furniture that goes
to make up the interior, that this
little human being does not feel lost
or ovorpowered as at St. Peter's at
Rome, but Instead feels lifted up
and his soul expanded, as should be
tho effect of all great architecture.
Extern/ally the cathedral stands
on a very romantic site. It is on a
hill on the cliff side of an old quarry,
which has ben used as a graveyard.
Here Liverpool's greatest citizens
are burled, and the towering cathedral will not overshadow their
tombs. On the other side, the site
falls away to the river, so that already all ships entering the port see
the vast mass of that portion of the
cathedral that has been built. This
ls only one wing, as It were.
There ls the nave to balance
the chancel and the other two
transepts to balance the two
yet to come. Most of all, there ls
yet to be the great central tower
binding the whole composition together. It will be noticed, therefore,
that this composition is a much
more symmetrical one than is usual
ln  a  Gothic  cathedral.   Here,

Prospects Are Brighter
A decided change has been effected In lhe l'eollngs of Western people
during lhe past lew weeks, with Ihe result that a new spirit of courage untl
hopefulness lias replaced discouragement and despondency In ninny homes
und even districts. This change Is noticeable ih the conversation of people,
ln the renewed interest they are laking, not only in their own affairs, but In
sll mailers ol public concern, und Is being reflected in a more confident nolo
among business men.
The cause for llils better lone is not far to seek, n is largely lo be
found In one development—the rising price of wheal, although there are
oilier contributing factors. On the date llils article ls written, No. One
Northern cash wheat is quoted at a fraction of a cent under $1.20 a bushel
on lhe Winnipeg market, us compared with less than a dollar only a few weeks
ago. The demand for wheal Is strong in Liverpool, Chicago antl Winnipeg,
and the confident prediction of well Informed grain men is thai the price trend
will continue upward, anil lhat the era of low prices has gone for ihis year at
least.
Tlie change lias been brought about by a realization thai Hie world production of wheat last year was very considerably over-estimated, coupled
wllh ti reduced acreage seeled to wheal this year, lo some slight extent In
Canada, to quite a considerable extent in lhe United Slates. The Argentine
crop last year fell millions of bushels below expectations; tin' winter wheat
crop of ihe United States shows a decrease of approximately one-seventh in
acreage, meaning fifty million or more less bushels, while the spring wheal
crop, exclusive of Dtirums, promises lo be short of actual home requirements.
Coupled wllh this world situation, and wllh Canada now ln (he very front
rank as one of lhe chief wheat exporting nations of the world, is lhe fact lh.it
spring seeding throughout Hie West was carried on under almost ideal con-
iliilons, while the nll-lmporlnnl Juno rains, with an absence of unseasonable
hot weather, has resulted In lhe wheat rooling well and developing a strong
growth.
The uncertainty which lias prevailed for some time regarding lhe pool
method of marketing lias been definitely ended by the success achieved in
securing lhe required acreage under contract in Saskatchewan lor pool purposes, thus guaranteeing lhat tlie pool method of marketing will be in effeel
this year throughout the three Prairie Provinces. While actual experience
alone will demonstrate the feasibility of the pool plan, ihe grain growers will
at least have the assurance Ihal their own Interests will be well looked alter,
and this makes for Increased confidence.
Another factor in the situation !•; iluit with the restoration of the Crow's
Nest Agreement rates in full force, further reductions In freight rates on coin-
modltles of vital Importance lo lhe farming community will be in effect.
Siill another factor Is the rapid development of the Western route for
grain shipments through tho port of Vancouver and lhe extensive Improvements being made lo that port, and the provision of larger elevator facilities
there to adequately handle this enormously increasing trade. The increase
in grain shipments from the prairies lo Vancouver last year was phenomenal,
and at one time lasl year 12 vessels were In port. The statement is made
that this year will show a still larger growth, and that commencing iu Sep-'
lember a Heel of not less than 2110 vessels will operate out of Vancouver, including many tramp bonis in addition lo tiie vessels making regular calls.
Whatever may he the situation in olher grain producing countries, lhe
1021 prospects are brighter for Western Canada than for some years pasi.
Last year tlie Wesl had no cause for complainl ou the score or Ihe size or
quality of its wheat crop; lhe whole trouble was the low price which left a
very small profit over costs of product Ion and marketing, and in many instances no profit at all. Given a fair average crop ihis year, and substantially better prices—both of which appear likely of realization—a marked improvement in Western conditions is assured.

Tourist Trade Valuable
Amount Spemt Last Year In Sweden
Waa $5,000,000
About $5,000,000 was spent in Sweden last year hy 50,000 tourists, according tu estimates compiled from
dala collected by Hie Swedish Tralllc
Association It has been possible lo
estimate from Hie business done by
hotels, steamship lines, railroads, the
larger places of amusement, etc., that
the number of foreign visitors In Sweden has risen from about 35,000 in
HUH to about 50,000 lu 1923.
The money brought into a country
by tourist trade Is usually spoken ol
vaguely as part of lho "Invisible trade
balance," bill experts in Sweden aro
now becomlug Interested in estimating these expenditures per capita.
Lieut. T. Segerslrale. director of the
Swedish Tralllc Association, has computed the average expenditure within
Sweden by tourists as nboul $100 lor
each person.

to slush and cold and frost bite from
the ley winds of winter. In the treat-
nieni of either an excellent preparation is Dr. Thomas' Eclectrlc Oil, as
it counteracts tho inflammation and
relieves the pain. The action of the
oil is prompt and its application is extremely simple.

A Huge Payroll
The pay-roll of the combined British

represents at least one-third of the

proves the means of support for at
least a quarter of Its total population.
There are ovor 3,600 firms exclusively engaged ln Ihe production, manufacture und handling of British Columbia wood products.

of nbout fifteen miles lhe white band
clays can be seen out-cropping in tlie
valleyside, this band of .white clay,
from 20 to 50 feet ln Ihlckness, forming a conspicuous feature of the landscape resembling in the distance great
snowbanks. Investigations of government experts indicate that the
quantity of raw material is practically unlimited. Some of the clays contain small concretions of iron oxide,
but these nro easily removed by washing, and an abundance of good clean
water can be had from the Frenchman
River for washing lhe clays. These
clays in the Cypress Mills have been
found to be less refractory than deposits located further west ln the

Canada Is singing nt the British Empire Exhibliion In London llils summer a mosl adequate and complete
representation ot Canadian life wiih
the object of picturing Canada, Canadian lite and Dominion expression for
lhe people ol olher lands.* In Its
thoroughness nnd comprehenslbillty it
is hoped to portray in figurative manner, In the fullesl possible way, the
many productive activiltes of the Dominion and their wide scope. In striving lo attain a concise representation
of Canadian life lhat will be a complete and adequate expression it has
extended its endeavors into novel
channels.
Canada In the pnsl, concerned primarily with settling her agricultural
hinds and rendering them productive,
with exploiting her wealth of natural
resources, witli securing the manpower to bring these things about, has
made her appeal a purely material
one. Her exhibits to the people of
other countries have consisted ot the
bountiful product of the wheat field,
of the forest and mine, of fishery and
fur-rich hinterland. Whilst the outstanding necessity was to bring lo
general attention this vast natural
wealth in order lhat it might b* utilized, this may have at times tended to
create the impression of the Dominion
as a mere storehouse of raw products,
where man might accumulate wealth
but only at the sacrifice of the amenities of life.
In the appeal Canada is making to
people of all countries, all classes and
all kinds to come and make their
homes in her domain, It has come to

Interviews a strong committee was
appointed and the whole mutter will
he thoroughly discussed at the first
annual camp which will be held in
the Yoho  Valley,  opposite  Takakaw
before Ihe opening of Ihe Alpine Club
of Canada camp.
The post of honorary president hns
been accepted by Dr. Charles D. Wnl-
coll, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, Washington, who has spent
over thirty summers measuring glaciers and studying the geology of the
Canadian Rockies.
Members of the organizing committee Include Colonel W. W. Foster, Vancouver, president of the Alpine Club
of Canada; Colonel Phil A. Moore,
Banff; H. B. Clow, president of the
Rand McNally and Co., Chicago; Tom
Wilson, Enderby, B.C., a well-known

and the finer elements and where man

Those who knr.v Canada appreciate
the fact that the Dominion possesses
a real and distinctive art and literature, which, though it has suffered,
and still does, from many severe
handicaps of a peculiar nature, is nevertheless flourishing. They appreciate that life in Canada has lis fine
and cultured side, rnd that in the various arts a worthy and solid foundation has been laid upon which may be
developed lhe artistic expression of a
great and populous nation such as
Canada expects to be. For the first
lime this is to oe brought to the attention or other peoples Ihrough exhibits.

art and 'lterature. Collections ot
paintings have been gathered together by Canadian authorities and will bo
on view. Thc only difficulty experienced ln milking up these exhibits
was in confining them within tho limitations of space offered.
Canada's natural beauty Is so varied and unexcelled It has furnished
subjects for a myriad paintings. Only
the best and most representative
could be chosen to acquaint the people
of other countries with other and less
appreciated phases of Canadian, national existence. >
The demonstration or Canadian literary achievement which will be made
at the British Empire Exhibition may
be traced very directly to the activities of the Canadian Authors Association. It was the Canadian Authors
Association which brought to the attention of the government the need
of such an exhibit and It was the machinery afforded by ihe association
which the government utilized in collecting the exhibit. The old adage
"In Union is Strength" Is therefore
again demonstrated in the experience
of the Canadian authors. Indeed, before they were organized some threo
years ago, no one would have guessed that such an organization would in
so short a time have attained a mem.-
bcrshlp of nearly 900, representing all
parts of Canada from Atlantic to
Pacific.
Canada's brief history has been replete with historic and romantic episode and has provided a host of material for the pens of her own literary
men.

FLOWER  SHOW WAS SUCCESSr
This year's flower show proved its
merit. There were many ladies in
attendance and not a few gentlemen.
Many tables were required to display the very numerous varieties of
cut flowers. The cursory observer
would hardly imagine that floral
beauty on so wide and magnificent a
scale was the possession of either
the town or its environs. Easily the
residents place a high value on exquisite flowers and beautiful home
surroundings. Greatly to the credit
of the home side of life ! The 1924
flower show was the highest possible
encomium that could be paid the citizens of Agassiz.
AGASSIZ STOCK FOR JAPAN

He has visited all the principal Holstein herds in America and Canada.
Mr. W. H. Hicks, supt. of the Experimental Farm here, was requested by the Secretary of the American
Holstein Assn., to communicate with
Mr. Mikawi through the Japanese
Consul at Neww York, with the result that he purchased one of the
best heifers from the celebrated herd
at Agassiz, and she has been shipped
to Japan.
The nucleus of the Agassiz herd
was purchased in the first place by
the Dominion Government for some
$$1500.

easy facility. Not more than 70
miles from Vancouver by C.P.R. to
Agassiz, and little more by boat
leaving either Vancouver or New
Westminster, from whence one is
landed right at the Springs or on
any partof the Harrison Lake he
may prefer. There is a third way,
at least—that is to go by B.C.E.R.
or C.N.R. to Chiliiwack or Rosedale
then by auto and ferry to the
Springs. AH of these trips are
through picturesque scenery, and
every whit a trip of pleasure.
Passing over the lake facilities,
and opportunity for fishing or hunting, refenence should bo made to
the comfortable lodges and the Hot
Springs or mineral waters.
There are a number of good hos-
|tels, but two excel ; namely, Deer
Lodge and the Carroll House. Mr.
and Mrs. A. W. Wootton know the
last thing in caring for the tourist,
traveller, sportsman, or, it may be,
seeker after better health. Deer
Lodge has delightfully clean, comfortable attractive apartments. The
meals leave nothing more to be desired in the way of appetising, and
courtesy is as natural and cheerful
on the part of the host and hostess
as sitting down to dainty meals.
Mrs. Carroll has the lesser of these
two admirable Lodges, but nothing
is lacking in thoughtful attention,
well-prepared meals, apartmentsthat
fulfil the last wish as to neatness
and comfort. Individuals or families going tn either of these hostels
can be sure they will get their money's worth, and have every chance
to rebuild and restore.
For thc matter of the Springs—
they are situated at the centre of the
south shore of the lake. Two water
limits are fenced off by high stone
walls, the larger limit being 24 by
36 feet. From scores of rock-pores
the mineral waters in their sparkling
beauty arc continually rising, and
either being conveyed to the bath
rooms or in a much less degree being drank. One of these water
limits produces potash water and the
other sulphur, though virtually many
minerals enter into the composition
of both. Thc day of our arrival there
were many patrons, varied in age
and degree of health. Mrs. Steigon-
bcrg is manageress, nnd leaves no
room for complaint of lack of attention or inefficiency—every patron receives the best of service.
Incidentally, these springs were
first serviced in the year 1889 by
Messrs. McLaren & Armstrong.
Were these springs and this wonderful rest-haven well known, many
thousands would spend days or
weeks there, instead of, as now,
only hundreds. The day is not far
distant when the Harrison Hot
Springs will take no subsidiary place
to any resort on either side of the
line.
...An Ideal place for picnics—Nothing more suitable, attractive or
beneficial, and intending parties may
well plan to visit this modern Eden
spot,
