Agassli, Ajni 4.—A meeting of tlu
nuepuye.h of l.t, Municipality oi
Kent was culled by the tteeve, Mr. J
H. Moi.row, to discuss the advisabll
ity of opposing an action in the Bu
prome Court entered by the B.C. Hop
Co. against tho Municipality, to fohce
them to cancel a gazetted road thiough
their properly, the road having been
surveyed in 1872. ,
The Reeve called tht) meeting to
order lu the Oddfellows' Hall, and
asked those present to appoint a
chairman. It was moved by Mr. Arthur Agassiz. seconded by Mr. Wm.
Clarke, that Mr. Wm- Green take the

Mr. Harry Fooks, Municipal Cle.k,
then read a copy of the writ Issued
out of the Supreme Court, by Reid,
Wallbrldge, Douglas and Richmond,
solicitors for the B.C. Hop Co., plaintiff, against the Municipality of Kent,
The Reeve explained that he regretted having to call the meeting, but
that as many years as he had been
iu t.wM MuiL.cipa.llty he had only just
found out that there was a gazetted
■ oad through the Hop Co.'s property,
and 42 ratepayers had presented
oe tit ion to the Council asking to have
the road surveyed, the result being
that Mr. Frank Sweatman wag engaged to re-su:ivey the road.
it became necessary for Mr. Swea'.-
man to go to Victoria, where he found
the records, field notes, eta, and the
road was duly su.veyed. Hence thc
reason for the Hop Co. taking the
action they have. /The Council did
rot Intend opening up the road at
present, only running a line to find
where the road was situated.
Mr. J. A.McDonald was then called
as an old-timer to t.y and throw some
light on the mutter, but all he could
day was that th» petition was"" misrepresented.
Mr. Albert Greyell. manager of the
B.C. Hop Co. was culled, and agreed
0th Mr. MrDonuld that the petition
was misrepresented. He said he hud
not much to say, but was willing to
answer any questions they wished io
put, and thut there had been a verbal
Agreement to cancel tho said road.
Mr. Sweatman then spoke as engineer, nnd explained what he had done,
and strongly advised the holding of
the road If possible, He pointed out
the value of such a road, especially
If, at some future date, a bridge was
built across the Fraser Uiver. Mr.
Geo. Nurse then asked if Mr. Sweat-
fan did not find a letter during his
search at Victoria, written by Mr,
Ms. Walker? To which Mr. Sweatman
answered In the affirmative and quoted the letter In part as follows:
That Mr. Walker had complained tc
the Government about the rood crossing his place, und a footnote written
by Mr, Slovens, who surveyed thu
road In the first Place, stating that
was thu best he could do.

! Women! Dye Faded
A- litis article is being written a conference ol' vital importance lo all
Canada, and one that, ir it roaches tt wise decision, will have a far-reaching
effect on lhe whole Dominion, is proceeding al Calgary. Possibly before
these words appear in print the die will have been cast tor good or III, bul
regardless of what thai decision may be we are convinced that sooner or
later the views herein expressed must. and will, prevail.
The conference lo which reference is made is thai between the coal
operators, or mine owners, of Alberta and lhe ofltclals of whal is known its
District is of the United Mine Workers' of America; in other words, the
miners' union. On April 1 tl xlstihg contracts and wage agreements between the mine operators and lite Union expire, ami lite conference is pro-
ceedlng with the objeel of negotiating new agreements.
The Union leaders are reported as insisting upon the maintenance of
the existing high wage schedules, and in so doing ate standing on the declaration of policy of Ihe recent convention of the l'nited Mine Workers at
Indianapolis against any reduction in wages and a four-year contract. la
other words, lhe demand is that lhe peak war wages shall continue to prevail.
One of the forceful arguments advanced by the Alberia miners in support of the unusually high wages Ihey now receive is that mining operations
are only carried on to full capacity for n mailer of the six or seven winter
months, and thai during thai period they must earn enough to maintain
themselves and families for twelve months.
Within recent years, and particularly last year, vigorous efforts have been
made lo overcome this difficulty and, by finding an all tlie year round market
for Alberta coal, guarantee continuous employment to the miners-, and also
through the resultant enormous Increase in production reduce overhead costs
per Ion of coal mined, give needed stability to the industry, and reduce the
selling price to lhe consumer.
To realize this object two main dlfllcutlles hnve lo be overcome. The
necessary market for all the coal Alberta can mine exists in Ontario and
Western Quebec. Ontario Is clamoring for Alberta coal, because experimental shipments ami tests have demonstrated its quality as satisfactory,
Bul Ontario is a long distance away, and the cost of transporting the coal so
excessive as to make the price prohibitive In competition wllh coal from the
fulled Slates.
The second difficulty is found in lhe abnormally high wages paid coal mtn-
ers ia Alberta which makes ihe cost of coal al lhe pit mouth high, and which.
coupled with transportation costs, makes Its marketing ami sale ia Ontario
The result Is that Willi billions of Ions of coal In Alberta, Ontario continues year tiller year paying $160,000,000 to the United States for coal, while
the Alberta mines close down or on short lime tor one-half, of each year.
Canada's adverse balance of trade with tlie United Stales Is Urns swollen, our
money Is drained away across the line, United States miners are kept busy
while Canadian miners are Idle, and United Stales railways gel traffic which
din- railways ought lo have find need, ami Ontario's industries are in jeopardy
'and may be ruined and thousands ol workers thrown oul of employment if
ni any lime conditions develop which may force the prohibition of export ot
coal by the United Stales.
Hut if. Instead of demanding the highest wages paid to any group of
miners on the American continent, the Alberta miners would agree lo accept
a reasonable wage schedule, the cost of coal at the pit month could be reduced, unit bj continuing mining operations throughout Ihe .slimmer months
p, i-niii o! the ill il movement of coal lo Ontario during the slackest months in
Western transportation1 activities, and thereby make possible a lower freight
rale. Tints the two main obstacles lo Ontario being supplied on'fl commercial basis witli Alberia coal would be reduced If nol entirely overcome.
witli all tlte year round employment guaranteed to them the Alberta
miners ami Ihelr families would be heller off financially, mentally anil moral-
li at ii reduced wage than wllh the now prevailing high wage, bul with sternly

ot production so that the Ontario market could tie sot'vod, and, what is of
ii(iii.l Importance, lho present high price of coat to tlie prairie consumer

anil 83,557 Ions in the l'nited Stall's.
To the railway companies 3,110,121
Ions were sold. The lotal production lor the coal mines la Alberia during 1923 was SUtl.191 Ions over the
lotal for 1922. Up to the end of 1922
Ihe report cites Dominion statistics
to show thai Alberta mines since ISSli
produced 69.sill.510 tons of coal to the
approximate value of 5121.715,815. The
domestic coal fields of lite province
turned out 3.161.711 Ions of coal In

The most, discouraging feature of nervous indigestion is the fact that it does not tend to right itself.
The nerves continue to grow weaker and weaker
because the digestive system is not supplying proper
nourishment and tho digestive system fails' for lack of
nerve force.
The nerves must be restored by some other means
and this is where Dr. Chase's Nerve Food comes to
the rescue.
It revitalizes the wasted
nerves and builds up the
nervous energy which is essential to thc healthful working
of the digestive system.
You will notice that while the
ftrice of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food
tas been increased to 60c. tho

Solution Of Problem Of
Utilizing Enormous Tonnage
Of Straw Annually Wasted
The following interview has been
given out by Major (I. (I. Omniiinney,
in charge of the C.P.R.'s department
of colonization and development,
wllh regard lo the work done by the
C.P.R. with respect to expet'lmenllntt

Premier Ovoenfleld Hint successful
tests in connection with Hie manufacture of paper from western wasle

Co-operation of tlie Canadian National Railway. 11 is well that oredlt
should he given where crqdll Is due
niul Premier Greenfield no doubt bus
information us to the co-operation given by the National Railways towards
the solution of Hits important problem which is not available lo Hie general public.
Premier Greenfield would no doubt,
however, be interested to leiirn that
the pioneer In initialing research
work Into the utilization of western I
flux straw is tlie same organization
Which lias always been the pioneer in
any large development movement
whether connected wiih transportation, agriculture or immigration vitally affecting the western provinces,
namely, the Canadian Pacific Railway.
The work of this company in its
efforts to iind a solution or the problem of utilizing tlie enormous tonnage of straw annually wasted and
burnt on the prairie provinces dates
back as far as 1916. About that date
the company engaged at considerable
expense the services of the Arthur D.
Little Company whose reoprt and research work on the possibilities of
manufacturing pulp und paper from
western flux straw still constitute
the most complete investigation of
tills problem which has yet been made.
The result of this work showed clearly that a high grade pulp could be
manufactured from this material from
which a high quality of paper was
made and actually utilized for some
time In the executive ollices of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
Possibly the report referred to by
Premier Greenfield may have been
that recently published on further
Investigations on this subject curried
out by the bureau of standards ol
the United States at Washington. It
is Interesting lo note thai once again]
the Canadian Pacific Railway, cooperating with tlie Honorary Council
of Scientific and Industrial Research,
not only suggested that, further tests
should be made on western straw In
order to ascertain the possibilities ol
making 11 cheaper grade of pulp suitable for the manufacture of newsprint
but also collected and supplied the
Canadian raw material which was
utilized in these tests.
The Honorary Council of Scientific
and Industrial Research have acknowledged by letter the co-operation
given by lhe Canadian Pacific Railway
Company and In a report printed by
the Paper Trade Journal of August
2nd, 1023, giving the results of the
tests of the bureau 'AT standards of the
Culled Slates Department of Commerce, reference Is made nol only lo
the source of supply of raw material,
but also to Hie Investigations made
ami paid for by Hie Canadian Pacific
Railway through tho agency of the
Arthur D. I.line Company and Lo j
literature printed and published by
the Department of Colonization audi

Tlie result of these many years of
work    bids    fall'    lo  bear  practical
fruition In lhe near future,     Very recently an' Important pulp and paper I
manufacturing company, utter study
lug the resulls which had been obtained through Hie Investigations
above referred to, sent their representatives to Canada and have made
a thorough Investigation of the Manitoba situation. Ihelr plans for the establishment "f 11 huge Industry lo

are well advanced und ll is believed
that the first practical development
for utilizing this hitherto wasted material will shortly become an accomplished tact.
II Is only right that credit should
be given where credit is due and the
above brief rev lew of the work carried out toward Ihe development of a

Supplying Bacon Type Sows
Good Results Are Shown Through
Introduction of Breeding Stock
The introduction of hog grading lias
created a general demand for brood
sows of bacon type. To assist farmers In securing these, the Livestock
Branch of the Department of Agrlcul-
lure at Ottawa, through the agency of
field men, makes suitable stock available In districts where it is most needed. According to the report, of the
Dominion minister of agriculture for
the past fiscal year, 757 head of bacon
type sowi-f were purchased in Ontario]
and shipped lor sale direct to farmers
in various parts of Quebec. Besides
these, more than three hundred Quebec brood sows were turned over from
Ihe breeders to districts thnt had nol,
been supplied. In tlie province of Alberta, according to' this report, 42
young sows of the Yorkshire breed
were purchased and sold to pig club
members, and a quantity of similar
stock was made available fo Vkrunlun
settlers. That tills work will produce
good resulls in due lime is shown from
the experience of the Pence River district, which was supplied with bacon
type hogs of boih sexes Iwo years ago.
The slock coming mil of the district
Ihe year following the introduction
comprised a much higher percentage
of select slock than thnt marketed
from other parts of Alberta.

Britain's Experiment
■s   In Socialistic Administration
Lloyd   George   Thinks   It   Will   Have!
Good   Effect  On  the   Impetuous      i
Soul of the Party
Addressing delegates representing
the United Porces oC Liberalism In the I
northern counties of England, Mr.
Lloyd George said thai ii was jusl
like Qrenl Britain's hick -that ihe
first experiment in socialistic administration had come under conditions
where it could do the least harm, even
conditions which could do a great deal
ol good, and (he experience was having a salulury effect on ihe impetuous
soul of the Socialist party.
"I am all for leaving them for some
lime belwyen the plough handles," lit
conllnucdAl "They will soon have.
aching backs and weary hearts, but
very much wiser heads. You cannot
plough from lho clouds."
"In Mr. MacDonald's first speech as
premier." continued Mr. Lloyd George,
"all lhe restraints, reservations and
compromises which mundane slates-
men hitherto have indulged in, were
repealed iu every paragraph. When
I heard Mr. MacDonald, who had Indulged in the shrillest notes, pitching
his tune lo low and imitating the very
modest notes from less pretentious
singers, I recalled to memory Ihe
cracked tenor who had been forced to
become a baritone."
He said the last government was a
spectacle of pitiable fatuity, and it
was not a very high compliment to
pay the existing ministers lo say
that, whatever were their detects or
shortcomings they were infinitely belter than the nveu they had supplanted.
"II Ihe present government/' he
concluded, "in a moment of lolly,
proposes a capital levy or any measures for the overthrow of private enterprise, the whole of the Liberal
parly will vole against it without regard to the effeei on lhe fortunes ol
Ihe government."

Russia in this paragraph: "Technically
unconnected with recognition, but
clearly ol utmost importance, are the
problems of settlement of the existing

The importance of the problems referred to may be gathered from the
t'aci thut the war debt of the Russian
Government to Great Britain is $3,-

lhe Soviet's own figures, the pre-war

The disclosures arising oul of the
Investigation of tlfe United Stales
Tariff Commission ol relative costs of
producing wheal in tho L'nited States
and Canada, Indicate thai Hi'1 Conn-
dian farmer can produce wheal far
more cheaply than can lhe farmer in
the l'nited States, Large]- yields per
acre, lower taxation and lower freight
rates, resulted, in tho year l!i2", in
ihe Canadian farmer being able lo
produce a bushel of wheat for -Iii cents
less lhan the United Slates tanner.
It was shown that on an eleven-year
average tftf production cost of a
bushel of wheat in the United Slates
was $1.58 as against $1.22 in Canada
and that in 1923, while it cost, the
United Stales farmer $1.49 to produce
a bushel of wheat the Canadian farmer
was able to produce it for $1.03. Canadian tanners can get, their wheat to
its outlet very much more cheaply
lhan can United States' farmers. The
average cost of wheat transportation
in the l'nited States is 1 cent for 37
miles, while in Canada a bushel can
be carried for t>(i miles for the same
cent. The average price of all land
both cultivated and uncultivated in
the United Stales is $69.3S per acre,
whereas I lie average price of farm
land actually occupied in Canada Is
but $10 per acre over the enlire Dominion. The average price of land
devoted lo wheat growing in lhe l'nited Slates id $92 per acre and in Canada $43 per acre. The yield per acre
in recent years has been higher in
Canada lhan In the United Slates.
Looking lo the future of Canadian
agriculture the figures are encouraging as illustrating Canada's ability
to compete In the wheat and flour
markets of the world. But they are
perhaps even more significant as indicating that wheat production is be-
Ing discouraged in the Lulled Stales
by economic conditions and that country, with its increasing population,
will, before many years, become an
importer rather than an exporter ot
wheat and flour, and a big market for
lhe Canadian farmer.

The three kinds are the Queen, the

also their carrying the pollen home
on their legs, how they use the crush

was clearly illustrated.,.. .Bees find
out by means of feelers, whether or
not its object lighted upon can be
stung. If left alone the bee will free
itself. If hit or frightened it will
break off the sting and soon die.
Most astonishing fact, a bee must
fly 24 miles to make one drop of honey. They never get their honey ingredients from near their hive, and
all their ingredients are from the
flowers, nor do they mix the pollen.
they do not put that of the clover with
roses or any other combination.

overland with his outfit of two cows
ami six horses from Brandon to Ihe
Moose -Mountain district. Even in
those early days (his district was reported to offer special inducements to
intending settlors. Willi their chattels consisting of a few household effects, implements and provisions
loaded on twd wagons, thoy made the
overland journey of one hundred and
sixty miles in tlie early spring. They
reached their destination in time to
cultivate a few acres of land for potatoes and some grain fo do them for
the coming year. He said: ".My wife
and daughter fancied living in tlie hills
rather Irian on the open prairies. They
preferred living among Hie hills where
tlie timber, the hills and the valleys
reminded them more of their old home
in Ontario. They chose this spot on
the shore of this lake for our home,
and I think it, was a wise move, for
here wo have lots of feed for our
stock, and wood Is plentiful and handy
to our house."
After a short time their conversation was interrupted by the appearance of Mrs. Fraser, who, in announcing that dinner was ready, remarked
on the delayed absence of "Mary."
Ronald was then introduced lo Mrs.
Fraser, who extended1 him a cordial
welcome, "Conn.1 in and have dinner
with us Mr. MacRae. We have plain
faro here, but we do the best we can
Io accommodate the few strangers
who come our way. We cannot do so
very much to entertain strangers so
far away from the advantages of settled districts. We so seldom see
strangers that we are always pleased
lo see them come, but you 4ire welcomed lo make yourself al home. Our
daughter Is out rounding the horses,
and I always feel anxious when she
is out late in thc evenings.
"I met your daughter on the trail as
I was coming In. She was all right
and said site would be home in a
short time."
"We slinll not wait supper any
longer. If she is not here by the
time we are through, I think, John,
you belter go out and meet her."
"Vou don't need to worry about
Mary, 'mother'; she knows this country like her first book, and she knows
how to handle horses and can always
iind hor way homo in lite darkest
night. She will bo here before long.
Come In ami havo dinner Mr. MacRae,
If Mary is nol here by tho Ilm,' we aro
through I'll saddle up and go out and
moot her."
They then entered the house and tho
room that served the double purpose-
of dining and living room combined
This room was huge, and (hough fur-
nisliod willi improvised and hand
made furniture, It showed considerable laslo in Its ai-raitgoiiionls. Al !
one end of Hie room there wiis a large
open stone fireplace, on ono stile of i
which Blood a well-filled bookcase and
on lho other sldo was an organ and a
shelf hanging on tlio wall containing
music slioois. Tho whitewashed log
wnlls of iho room wore decorated with
reprints of famous pa in Hugs, as well j
as relics of tho olmse, among which
wore iwo well mounted oiks' hcadB.
Tho furnishings were mostly handmade. Thoy consisted of two com-
lorlablo couches, a i-miplo of easy
chairs made of natural curved birch
saplings wiih woven willow backs.
sides and senls. There wore also
haud-inntle chairs of plain design.
While the room was nol carpeted, Litis
defeel was overcome by nulls holh
hand-made anil of shins, conspicuous
among which was a largo boar skin

Night was falling, vol there was no
sign of iho return of either father or
daughter, Tired as he was after tils
long day's ride, Ronald was restless
and ill ut ease. Tho vision of Ihe
young woman he niel so short a lime
ago was ever before him. Thoughts
of iho hidden dangers that lurked In
tlio vicinity from horse thieving bandits added lo his uneasiness. Yielding al lasl to his uneasiness and sense
of fear respecting her safely, ho lold
Mrs. Fraser that he would saddle up
his horse and go oul and meel llioiu
in case ills asisslance was needed,
"Mr. MacRae," she said, "it Is very

loss rider ami lakes many chancos.
If you fool like going take a fresh
horse from lho stable, for yours must
bo tired after your long trip, Thank
you vory much, and I do hope nothing
has happened."
Ronald entertained no Illusions as
lo lho fear of accidents. Mr. Fraser
had a band of horses ihal offered a
templing bait to roaming bands of
horse thieves, and the danger of lhe
absenl girl being waylaid in her soil
tary search for them was not. a re-
mole probability; With him to decide was to act. Within a few minutes he was cantering up tiie trail by
which lie had come, well mounted on
a fresh horse and fully armed.
About a mile out on the trail he
heard Mr. Fraser calling his daughter's name, but received no answering

in tlie vicinity, where Ronald had seen
her disappear a few hours before.
Shots were flred, but the only answer
was the re-echoing sounds of their

having proved unavailing Ihey decided
lo return home and make preparations
to resume the search al the earliest

home during their absence. When
they readied the house! tlie anxious
mother was still up awaiting their return. When she saw them returning
unaccompanied by the missing daughter she became greatly distressed.
Hm. finally, encouraged by tlie assurance of the men she became more
composed and assisted In the preparations that were being made to resume
lhe search iu tlie early morning.
While the two men entertained no
Illusions as to the dangers that surrounded lho daughter, they were sllll
hopeful that no Immediate harm would
befall her. Though Ihe parents feared that she had mot wllh an accident

Farmers Take New Attitude Towards
Employment Question
Farmers are coming to realize (hut
hiring farm labor for a few months
of lhe year only Is not as economical
as it appears, being, in fact, expensive
both from a national and individual
viewpoint. When a man Is brought In
from lite east or from a greater .distance for work which only lasts pari
of the year, lu lhe long run his lure
is paid both wavs by the fanner hiring
him, lhe money ho earns is taken
away from the area of his labors, aud
ho again becomes an unemployed man
for the country to place.
Ninety-live per cent, of the applications coming In from Canadian farmers ror farm help under the scheme
originated by tlio Canadian Pacific
Railway, offer employment for the
year round. This discloses a decidedly new attitude In the farmer's outlook on tho farm employment question, and reveals a result which Is not
generally appreciated of the general
progress being made In mixed fanning ihi'oiiglioul Canada.
Applications are coming In at a very
pleasing rate this year, and an even
greater number of experienced agricultural laborers Is expected to arrive
in Canada under the allspices of the
Canadian Pacific Railway to be placed
with farmers who have asked for
them, than came out last year, tho
first of Its operation. The scheme
proved so successful last year, in fact,
that it has been continued as a permanent feature of the immigration and
colonization work of the company,

as It does, the widespread ramifications of the giant organization.

Canadian Flour Cheaper
Has Crowded United States Flour Off
the British Market
A press dispatch from Washington,
D.C., appearing in Canadian newspapers, states that flour milling Interests argued before the tariff commission recently for maintenance of the
present tariff relationship between
wheat, flour and wheat products. They
were unable, however, to produce production costs of wheat feeds desired
by lhe commission and adjournment
was taken until later.
"The millers testified," stated the
dispatch,' "that Canadian millers were
able to put down a barrel of flour in
New York, after paying a duty ot
J1.53, for seven cents less than It
costs United States millers to place
flour on the New York market.
They pointed out that If the wheat
duty were increased 50 per cent, and
a corresponding Increase were not
placed on flour, Canadian millers
would be able to under-sell United
States millers in the New York market to the extent of 77 cents a barrel.
Canadian flour was selling in London a week ago for the equivalent of
S5.50 a barrel, one miller testified,
slating that an equal grade of flour
could nol be produced in Minneapolis
for that amount. The Canadian millers, it stated, have crowded United
Slates flour oPthe British and conlln-
enlal markets and wero making inroads in the United Slates export flour
trade in the West Indies through their
ability to sell at lower prices, and
with the aid of preferential tariffs
granted by Diilish colonies. Only
