The Agassis Women's institute
called a mooting of delegatus from
all tbe different organisations in view
to bowing a community concert, half
the proceeds to bo used toward** the
building for the school chlldt en to
play in. the other haaf a* a reserve
fund for charity. The popularity of
tin. enterprise was emphasized by
som. «f the Boclietles sending two or
three i^leirates, Mrs. Fooks was appointed    iialrmon   of   the   meeting.
Th« delegates who addressed the
meeting were as follows: Rebecca
Lodge, Mi'*-, Fred Wilson : Farmers'
Institute, Mr. W. Clark; Orangemen,
Mr. W, a. Jonest*; Agricultural Society, Mi*. iWm. Henley; Presbyterian
Church, Rev. Dewar.; MethodU't
Church, Mrs. Whlttaker: English
Church. Rev. Tu'k'lngtnn; Roman
CathnUo Church. Miss Agnes Appel;
Daughters of the Empire, Mrs. Has-
lam ; Oddfellows, Mr. Fooks; Rifle

Teacherw. Mrs. Dennis; Guild {English Church) Miss Connie Agasslj :
School Boatfd, Mr, Green ■; Women's
Institute. Mrs5. Dewar; Young Pennl"
Society. Mra Dewar c Presbyterian
Ladlea' Aid, Mrsi Roach.
The delegates unanimously expre.iH-
ed themselves of one accord In favor
of the building of a school play room
and offered their services in whatever way was decided as being mos*
beneficial. The building Is to be
larg^ enough to bo used for basket
balL aa* well as a play room for the
children. Therefore, the opinion was
expressed that the big boys would
monopolize the building to play has-
ketba-M in and the small ones woe'd
still have tr) get oufc in the wet. But
It was explained that the building
would not be used fop that until after school hours, but be supervised by
the teachers.
One delegate Raid he understood tbe
idea  was  to arrange   the  building  so
that Domestic Science and Manual
TwLliitng could be taught in it and
then they c-ould ftsk the Government
for assistance In building same, which
was   passed.
Then tbe following committees were
appointed: Miss Mi.inle Agassiz said
before It went any farther she wanted it understood she was stage committee and must have Mr. Fooks as
Assistant carpenter, which Mrs. Foot**
agreed   to
Hall committee, Mr. Wm. Htnlev.
Mr. Har: y Fooks. Mr. Spencer, Mr.
Wm.  Clark
Entertainment committee, Mrs. Dewar (convenor), Mrs. Whlttaker, Mr.
Sumpter, Mrs. Roach, Mrs. Henshaw.
Mr, Hicks, Mrs. Sweatman, Mn. Jones
Mrs. Probert, Miss B. Inkman, Mrs.
Refreshment committee, Mra. Fred
Wllison, Miss Connie Agassiz, Miss
Agnes Appel. Mrs. Heath, Mr8. J. Mc-
Pherson,   Mrs,   Morrow,   Mra.   Haslam.
The P.T.A. then called a meeting
and asked everyone present to remain,
as It was for the same cause, with
a view to getting public opinion. Mr.
Hugh Brown acted as chairman. A»
n result of this meeting two representatives of each ward were chosen
to   canvas   the   munlclnalltv
Tuesday evening, Jan. 15, a lecture

School Trustees, tour In the field,

"Hie poll closed at 7 p.m. but the
••osult of the election could not be
nflclally announced until after the
arrival of the 9:15 traln' which
brought In the ballot box from Harbison  Mills.
During the Interval those who were
nresent awaiting the result decided to
discuss matters in general and appointed Mr. Wm. Henlev chairman,
who after a few remarks called on
anyono who wished to xpress themselves on matters pertaining to the
welfare of the community in general.
M*. F. 13. Court arose and addressed the audience In his usual good-
natured and humorous manner. He
«aid he wished to thank; his support-
"i-f!, Il was true he had not been
«1 (Mrted as School Trustee, but ho
wished to thank the citizens just the
"ainc. His reason for running was
that twelve reliable ratepayers had
approached him Insistenty in tho mat-
tar, and he thought that anyone who
oould qualify under those conditions
Mhould certainly come out and offer
his services. Mr. Court then made
a few remarks regarding a community
hall, eta, and asked Mr. Morrow to
explain something about the $6000
surplus  in   the municipality.
Reeve Morrow explained that it was
true that they had about $6000 to
their credit, which was a good thing
to have, as they needed It ; but most
of that had come In during the latter
part of the year, and he thought It
would keep the Schools going for
about five months. Personally he
was opposed to a community hall nt
the present time. The discussion then
ran a'ong that line for a while, but
the feeling seemed to be that the time
was not yet ripe as It were for a
community hall1. Mr. Court remarkel
that he thought if the matter was
kept c6ntinually hefore the public,
that eventually; they would find ways
and meantf, to build one. Some years
ago he eald the matter had come up
and he and MVi Sumpter had gone Into It, with the result .that all the re-
urned soldiers were willing to give
their work free, provided they could
get thtf material.

Tho n.'Xt morning we were all up
bright and early, and after breakfast
the men set out. for Spruce Creek.
And when I could no longer hear
the rattle of tho wagon I knew Hint I
was really "on my own."
The day promised to be hot, but as
there was a pleasant breeze I made a
fire and heated water and llien proceeded to wash evrythlng washable
that. I could Untl, using Mr. Herring-
ton's last cake of soap in tlie process.
I had asked Murray to bring me n tin
of stove polish from the village but 1
had not thought of soap und, as Nicolas pointed out, "We can't telephone
here, can we?"
After the house came tho garden.
I found good potatoes, carrots, onions.
turnips, a few beets, beans in 1 lie halfway stage between green and ripe,
"Country Gentleman" corn almost
ready for use, ami some rather neg-
lcctcd-looklng cabbages anil cauliflowers. Evidently Mr. llerrington
believed in doing himself well.
The soil, even to my amateur eyes,
Seemed the sort in which anything
would grow, and I determined that the
next spring would see a greatly enlarged ami improved garden. When
I could grow tomatoes and celery and
cucumbers successfully in ti city backyard there seemed no reason why I
should not have even better luck with
them In such rich new soil. And I
would try raspberries and red and
black currants, and perhaps some
Everbearing strawberries.
We were on our way to explore the
stable when we heard the sound of
wheels, a rhythmic rumble and click
that was not a wagon, I was sure.
The twins were curious and I—I hate
to confess it—rather nervous. But
tho source of the noise soon declared
Itself, and proved to be nothing more
fearsome than Jim Cameron come
witli his binder lo cut the wheat.
Jim was it pleasant-looking young
fellow, sunburned and freckled In accordance with Ills red hair, and the
sen-blue eyes whose twinkle rather belied his rather bashful manner. Bashful or not, be was very friendly, and
when I asked him to come In al nnon
and have' lunch witli me and the children ho seemed very much pleased.
Alter what must have been his
Bovonth or eighth hot biscuit he Informed me witli a sigh of contentment
that It was "going to be greftl lo have
ti woman in lho nigliborhood," and my
mission, I gathered, was to be a varied
one. I was to set an example In
home making and culture and to invite my bachelor neighbors to a "real
meal" occasionally.
In return for cotloo and biscuits
and grape marmalade .lim gave me ft
great ileal of useful Information. Hi
and his brother had, he said, been lithe habit of exchanging work ami ma*
Ohlnery with Mr. Harrington, nnd
would do so with Murray if he wished
"Dickie was an awfully decent sort,
and n hard worker In his way," ,11m
explained, "but ho was nboul as much
use on a farm as a snowball-1 mean
as a pig on ice."
I thanked him for the offer and explained that mil 11 Murray was strong
er we scarcely knew what we would
do In tin; way of farming.
"Well. 1 don'l want, to hull In," Jim
replied, "hm if there is anything I can
do for you I hope you will let me
know. A person often needs a bit of
advice on a new Job and Hob and I are
old hands at farming."
"TllOro Is one tiling I want as soon
as possible," I said. "Ho you know
where I can get a good milk cow, or
maybe two of them?"
"And some chickens and some pigs,"
broke in Nicolas, who had been silent
for an unusually long Whllo. "Ono of
the cows is for mo and one Is for Rupert, Cousin Margaret said so, And
1 am going id teed tlie chickens, but
I don'l like pigs."
"If you'll come to yisll me you'll see
lots of cows and pigs," Jim promised.
Then, lo me, he explained that while
lie had a fairl) large herd of cattle he
had raised them all for beef, but that
he thought wo might get milk cows at
a tialician settlement twelve miles
east, or perhaps from one of the settlers nearer home. The price he
mentioned as likely to he asked was
less lhan I had expected lo pay, the
reason, lie said, being thai feed was
scarce and that people were willing to
sell cheaply for cash In order to meet
their liabilities.
"You'll find, Mrs. Aylwln," he said
seriously, "that most of us in this district are Just holding on. The land
Is good, and a man who hasn't too big
a proportion of wood on his quarter
inn do fairly well, especially if lie has
some livestock and does not have lo
depend altogether on his crop, Hob
and I have about equal parts of timber and liny-land and open prairie, and
even we have to stretch pretty hard to
make ends met. The people In the
bush are worse off, It Is no joke to
clear that sort of land and what you
can gel for wood just now does not.
more than pay for your time. Of
course anyone wiio can slick if out for
a few years will bo on Easy Street.
Tlie soil can't bo beaten and we are
close lo the best market in the West.
I expect, to live long enough to seo
this district ns prosperous as old Ontario. But In the meantime you'll
Und that a little cash goes a long way.
His explanation guve me something
new to think about. The pioneers,
I told myself, were not. all dead. Willi
sudden insight I saw our situation in
a new light. We had come amongst
these people under circumstances very
different from their own, and with no
idea of making a permanent home nor
of taking a share of the hardships. Wo
were "roughing It" only for the sake
of Murray's health, I had always reminded myself. Ilerrlngton's Hope
was to bo only an incident in our
lives, a humorous one, if possible, but
nl any rale merely nn incident. And
1 had rather prided myself on my
courage;, it seemed quite a big thing
for a woman to come to such a place
for the sake of her husband. But now
I realized that I had been pitying myself rather unnecessarily. After all,
what was I that 1 should claim the
martyrs' crown for doing willingly
what other women did of necessity?
I gave myself a proper lecture, and
felt the better for it. Homesickness,
I concluded, was justifiable, but It
must be hidden. And if I were to
hold up my head among my neighbors
I must avoid ns the plague all appearance of superiority or discontent.
The children and I had a very good
dinner ready when Murray und Teddy
arrived. They brought with them the
tin of siovo polish, but only half our
furniture, as there was too much lo
be luken in one load. The rest was
under cover at the station, and we decided that It must remain there for
Iwo or three days, as Murray was so
tired that he frightened me.
My men-folk, were, I told them, very
intelligent. They had brought, in the
first load the things we needed most,
and had left Ihe piano, the bookcase
and the chairs at Spruce Creek.
We did not do much in tlie way of
unpacking Hint night, for nfter we
had exchanged gossip wo were nil
ready for bed. But the next morning
we set to work and soon had everything In place.
1 had sold my large rug before we
left Winnipeg, nnd In place nf It had
bought ft linoleum rug lo fit the new
living-room. One of the arch cur-1
tains made a very satisfactory couch i
cover, nnd Ihe oilier one I used for a
tabloelotll. All tlie window curtains
had lo be altered, but tlie cutting oi (
them down to fit their new places was
no v.-ry great, task, especially as 1
used only Hie very narrowest of side-
eiu'lains, on account of the low ceilings. Tho pictures were, for tie
Mime reason, hung low. I did nol Ilka
•lie plain white walls, nnd I promised
myself two coftts of French grey kul-
somino In lhe spring. But after tlie
lest of our furniture had come and Hie
piano and bookcase and chairs were
in place we nil ngreoil Hint we had an
unexpectedly pretty room. The bookcase, nn old walnut one with open
shelves, was so roomy that 1 used the
two upper shelves for my pretty odd
china and glass und silver, In spile of
my Instinct  to, pack them away "In

have always bought bears signature of
the meantime." The corner cupboard held the kitchen dishes and the
most commonly used supplies. Everything else we put, together with my
Blue Willow dinner set, in the shelves
in tlie children's room, which we would
continue to uso ns a store-room until
we could get a kitchen built. The
stove was the one great eyesore.
Teddy used almost the whole tin of
polish on it, and on himself, but even
at that It spoiled my pretty room. A
stove is a stove, be It ever so black,
but we knew that we would have to
put up with it until after harvest,
when Mr. Gagnon had promised to help
Murray build a kitchen.
The house settled, we turned our attention to the main out-of-doors. For
one who was a "handy man" Mr. Her-
ringtou must have had some strange
lapses. The water, which was good
and quite soft, had to be carried, pailful by pailful, from the spring. And
there was no place where food could ,
be kept cool in the summer and warm
in tho winter. There was a rainwater barrel on a raised platform near
the doorway, nnd though the water
smelted strongly of gasoline I was!
glad to have It. It was Rupert, who
discovered the dugout root cellar In
the bank of the Creek near the spring,
and though It was Inconvenient wo I
kept our perishable foodstuffs there
until cooler weather came.
The stable, like the house, was well
buill and roomy,     Tlicro was plenty
of space for the two cows we meant
to get, und Hie low end under lho sloping roof would do for the hens,      I
planned to have turkeys, too, and with
running water so close It Boomed a
slighting of Nature's gifts not to try
ducks nnd geese as well, but for the
present I was prepared lo be snlisfied
witli the humble hen.     And we would
havo to build a pig pen, I told Mur- [
ray.      Pigs could not help but bo a !
veritable gold mine when we had lo'
pay as tnueli as fitly cents a pound |
for a roast of pork in Winnipeg.     As
it liapepns,  we are still plgless,  but
we have hopes.
I was very ignorant of nil such matters, but I planned to spend the long
winter evenings in the close perusal
of farm journals, so ns to be prepared
for tho conduct of what Teddy called
my "stock farm" In the spring. I
kept my resolution, nnd by the first of
March I could hnve passed an examination on the breeds, habits nnd treatment of cattle, pigs and fowl of all
sorts. The trouble wan that the creatures themselves did not always go by
tho book—the old problem of the personal equation. I learned that hens
sometimes ate their own eggs, and
that ono frequently ran across n temperamental cow. But I have never
yet read of a reliable euro for tho
wanderlust In turkeys, or the constitutional unreasonableness of pigs.
Wo were very rortunnte In getting a
good cow before wo had been two
VV.   N.   U.   1408
weeks on the farm. Jim Cameron
told us that he believed the Fenwicks,
who lived near us, had one for sale.
Murray and I went to look at her and
as the Fenwicks seemed honest and
the cow herself had no outstanding
peculiarities, we bought her—and renamed her Carrie, short for Carnation,
In memory of tho condensed milk that
we had hated as no one should hate
a friend In need.
Ours was surely beginners' luck.
Carrie proved to be a jewel, even if
she was only a near-llolsteln. She
was, the Fenwicks told me, a late cow.
And that mean, as I learned by looking
wise and saying nothing, that (he calf
which we had not bought was destined to be very young veal in Hie fall,
and that Carrie would give milk until
"There's no 6cnse In getting a second cow now,"- said Jim, "she'd just
eat her head off all winter so you'd
better let romeono else feed her.
About the end of March you'll be able
to get one with a new calf, and there
Is no use laying out your money before
you have to. Of course you might get
one cheaper during tho winter, for If
you look around you'll likely find
someone who'd rather have cash than
a cow that must be fed."
"That would seem ruther like taking advantage or our neighbors,
wouldn't It?" I asked Murray, nfter I
had repeated Jim's advice to him.
"I'mjtfrald you aro not going to find
this an Idyllic life," was Murray's reply. "So far as I can Judge, the thing
that Is hampering the farmers here Is
a lack of ready money. They havo
no reserve capital and bo they hnve to
sacrifice the future to lhe present. I
suppose it Is the history of all new
settlements.     Don't let It worry you
too much, Margaret Anne—remember
that If you buy a cow now for less
than It would be worth In tbe spring
your money may help to pay lhe interest on a loan or to buy groceries. It
may be more needed and therefore
much more valuable than a cow."

Weak, Watery  Blood the Source  of
All Nervousness
"If   people   would   utlend to Ihelr
blood, instead of worrying themselves
111," said an eminent nerve specialist,
| "we doctors would not see our consulting rooms crowded with nervous
wrecks. More people suffer from
worry than anything else."
The sort of thing lho specialist
spoke of Is tho nervous, run-down
condition caused by overwork and tho
many anxieties of to-day. Sufferers
find themselves tired, low-splrlted and
i unable lo keep Ihelr minds on anything. Any sudden noise hurls them
like a blow. They are full of groundless fears, do not sleep well at night.
Headaches and oilier nerve pnlns are
part of Hie misery, and It nil comes
from stand nerves.
Doctoring lhe nerves Willi poisonous
sedatives Is a terrible mistake,    The
I only mil tieive Ionic Is n good supply

Dr. Williams' Pink Pills should lie taken. These pills enrich the blood,
which tones the nerves. Improves ihe

Rccvc 11 elver is a native sou--a
brant! pew product of Maple Ridge
scholusticolly by interest and in the
best welfare sense. Mr. Mclvnr's in-
'umbency of the Reevcship may be
said to be hereditary, for his fathei
tvns for many yes '• an enthusiastic,
ardent and successful member of the
earliest councils of the municipality. In
1021 the Reeve was elected by a hand?
'.nmc majority and the next two years
was the citizens' choice by acclamation.
He has been for many years closely
identified with tvery welfare movement,
and manifestly has been determined to
serve his fellow citizens to the best
of his ability, setting their interests
always above any merely personal interest or end.
Councillor is not a man without experience he having filled not a few
posts requiring skill and agrcssivencss.
lie taught School for a while and has
the last year occupied a scat on both
the School Board and Municipal Council.
For Ward I; Councillor Brooks i.-
again a claimant for honors, for he
has been quite unsparing in his attention to the members of his constituency. He has the roads in his ward
in particularly good shape, and it is
safe to say that no citizen has appealed to Councillor Brooks in vain—
Iiis aim has ever been for good and
gain to his fellow citizens.
Councillor Hilder for Ward IV. has
proved both his competence and his
popularity in relation to every matter
effecting his ward in particular and the
whole district in general. Unbiassed
opinion will freely allow that Capt.
Hilder has well earned the esteem of
his  fellow  electors.
Councillor Watt, faithful in the hour
of his country's call, has sincey his
election to the council some two or
three years ago, proven that it is as
patriotic to live for one's country as to
be ready to die for it. He has, like
Councillor Hilder, rendered faithful service.
For the new candidates it is due to at
least introduce them to the electors-
how can we intelligently vote for can-
didates of whom we know nothing?
Ex-Councillor Walter Best needs little by way of introduction, for like the
Reeve, he is a native son and has ever
proven -himself a citizen whom his
fellows have occasion to hold in esteem,
Greater, perhaps, than his experience
In the council were his struggles in life,
for in those early days there were hardships innumerable, all of which young
Best met with determination and to
final triumph. He is now ready to
serve well in the council.
R. Isherwood served four years with
the Canadian Army and won distinction and since his return been a settler
on the .Dewdney Trunk Road. He is
like Mr. Walter Best a strong advocate
of good roads and prefers decidedly the
system of rocking instead of gravelling.
He favors insisting that the B, E. E.
R. live up to their contract and that
they grant a less rate than 11 cents
per K. W.
Regarding School Board candidates,
the electors are not left without good
Mrs. Maxwell is too well known to
the parents, teachers, and boys and
girls to call for much to be said here.
For four years she has put the inter-
eF's of our future citizens above tvery
other consideration and so in the
hearts of our youth has erected as it
were a monument to service and citizenship.
Mr. W. J.' Sparling yielding to the
urging of many fellow citizens has this
year consented to become a candidate.
He is a gentleman of experience and
with a record, having for some time,
served faithfully on the council (Bir-
tle, Man.) and as School Trustee in
Sask. Mr. Sparling's selection as
School Trustee cannot fail to prove
his merit and redound to the honor
of the electors.

Reeve J. A. Mclver is, on the insistent urging of his many friends, again
a candidate for the Cheif Magistary
nor without strong grounds, for he has
proved more than ordinary merit.
During his three years service he has
perfect attendance and so is posted on
every detail of business transacted.
Those who have followed the acts of
the Council for the past three years
will readily concide that Reeve Mclvdr
has given close attention to all matters
under consideration and has at all times
employed, judical care. He has not
once, it is safe to say rushed a decision
but rather taken time to weigh matters
from every viewpoint and the act as

None can for a moment charge the
Reeve with favoring any party or clique
if such there were, but, instead, every
had careful consideration and all persons have been listened to with consid-
erateness, whether it was at council

cvciple followed has been equal and just

Editor Hammond Gazette:
Dear Sir,
I notice that Reeve aspirant, Mr.
J. Mnrtyn takes credit to hlinsell
and Mr. Munro, M. I'., for securing
lho rural mail, also slating that l here
was no demand for a route from Ham
mond end.
Now, let's see just where the cvedl
should go. In lOlfi Mr. C. hi. Til
dull wrote to the council concerning
the matter. The council replied and
left il lo him lo arrange a date will
Mr. Stacey, M. P., for n public meeting, which was held in the Municipal
Hall, and, 1 helng tlie only municipal
representative present, was chosei:
us chairman of tho citizens' commit
tee, composed of Mr. Catell for fill
looet, Mr. Rlddell and Mr. E. Hamp
ton for Hammond, Mr. Adair foi
Haney, Mr. ti, O. Buchanan for Ens!
Haney, and Mr. W. A. Hendersoi
and myself for Websters Corners
Thn t ci mini i11 ce met, worked ha rd
secured all data, maps und plans am'
had all petitions duly signed and
everything in Al shape and saint
sent in due form to the depart men
at. Ottawa. 1 received a letter fron
the Minister there saying the de
par lnont decided not to open nn,»
more mail routes at present owing to
finnne'-l affairs of tlie country,
No-, here's where the real work
came in. Mr. Tlsdall took the matter up with the Vancouver Board of
Trm.i ..nd secured the assistance of
Hon. il. H. Stevens, Vancouver M. P.,
nnd Mr. VV. G. MeOunrrle, M. P. for
New Westminster, the New Westmiu-
ater Board of Trade and Mr. Staeej',
M. P, I then got after the Government und it was chiefly through the
efforts of Hon. H. H. Stevens that
the ease was re-opened and tenders
called for. I believe the tender for
the Hammond route was around
9000 and Ihe Haney route from $1)00
to $1,000} I, myself, was offered it
for $1,200, but thought that too low.
The department considered the tenders too high, and consequently laid
them by.
Now, all that Mr. Martyn and Mr.
Munro did was to get u ve-opentng
of the tenders und so switched lhe
route thai llancy took it nil ami Hammond was lefl out, Mr. Tlsdall, I
believe, publicly thanked me nt I be
opening of tin1 Haney Exhibition (I
was not there) for my work in connection with the rural mail, but il
really is Hon. Mr. Stevens who should
gel the credit.
The department also wrote congratulating me on having the best
maps and plans Kent from the Eraser Valley, good enough In Itself.
. I write this not because I want any
credit but because the thanks should
go to tho right parties, whereas Mr.
Mnrtyn is trying to luke the credit,
to advance his Interest for Reeve.
I am enclosing you papers from the
Vancouver P. o. Depot showing lists
of applicants for both routes—Hammond equal wiih Haney. The former list was. I believe, turned over to

ltrto—tlie initial sentence heard wns
"tho great lorie land by Butler where
he nilviseiT 'sell your liinil und buy'"
—meaning in the west or whut is
I now the prairies.
As the lecture developed it wns
evident n noble elnss nf the public
service was having Its deeds of heroism, intrepidity and unsurpassed
sense of honor unveiled, as it were,
and, safe to say, It wns a revelation
to all.
Beginning with a small force the
Royal North-West Mounties rose to
150 and then to 300 and yet with
this number competently officered a
territory larger than the old Roman
Empire and bigger, too, than many
combined realms of Europe.
"Mid-West Canada under control to
Canada came in and the old Hudson's
Bay Company went out."
Most interesting was the proclamation making this change—the lecturer was able to quote it, "By the
(•race of God" became a much caught
phrase and so we had "White Fish
Lake by the Grace of God," etc.
Back and forth the Mounties passed, braving everything—they often
traversed "where scarcely a human
foot could pass or a human heart
would dare." From Manitoba to
Fort McLeod they passed so swiftly
that it would uppear that they covered at the same time all parts of
the vast field.
It wns pleasing to learn thnt "no
place in the whole world," in the
words of the Rev, lecturer, "saw such
fair nnd gentle treatment of the
native tribes, indeed, the Indians recognized the Police us their special
friends." Thus the work of taking
over the vnst "Lone Land" was soon
accomplished—practically the tusk of
some six weeks only.
Most interesting was the account
of how tlie great Chief Crowfoot and
his aids, after a two days' discus-
ion arrived at terms of treaty, averring Hint the lied Coats had always
kept their word and also that, they
(the Indians) were not. afraid to
stand up before the new-comers. No
thought of a rebellion or revolution.
Soon we find Crowfoot nnd several of
his braves riding on the C. P. R. fender to the Rocky" Mountains Instead
of being tlie leader of wide-spread
last Great West Rebellion.
Thrilling witli interest was the account of the way these Mounties
assisted the early settlers and by riding up und asking "any complaints,"
came to be regarded as the very saviors of the settlers, indeed, in ninny
instances too much was expected of
them In the way of finding strayed
cattle or horses. Many of the thrilling ndventures were related so
almost to appear ns real present
scenes. In one case a little girl of
\ years Is lost, a ltoynl Force sallies
out from Ileglna and without stay
or cessation for 48 hours they search
foot by foot till the little one Is
found und restored to Its mother's
arms. Those men proud In the
majosty   of   their  accomplishment.
Another case wns Hint of a grenl
nralrlo, flro, which was swooping the
plains In defiance of strenuous exertions to stem Its progress. Conradle
lho Mountlo rides up enquiring If any
new Ncttlers further buck. Yos, there
Is a new family back there—a Mr.

nine months of the current calendar
year. For this period, during 1922,
there were 70,988,000 pounds of

The regular monthly meeting of the
Haney P.T.A was held In MIssMor-
ley's noom on Monday. After reading of Treasurer's and Secretary's
reportsi the meeting was left open
for a discussion of playround equipment. It was decided that the Association woula start Immediately to
raiae funds for equipment of playground, but the money raised wonld
not be, used for somo time; owing to
unfavorable weather and ti.e bad condition of the Haney  school grounds.
The matter of the Dental Cllnio was
brought up. It was decided that no
further steps (would be taken until
answers wore reoeivd from the other
P.T.A.'s of the Municipality voicing
their  opinions  of  same.
Bible reading In the schools was
then discussed and approved of. It
wis moved that a resolution be sent
.o tho Department  to that effect.

would be htild in the evening.
An Illustrated lecture was suggested and approved of. It was moved
that tho Secretary write Prof. Wlnm
nnd engage him for tho evening. A
silver collodion will be taken at the
door. Tho lecture will be held in
the High School if the use of that

sense and application of "Do to others as you would wish to he done bv"
and his ability as a business man—

What might have resulted in a
very serious train wreck was avoided
in the nick of time on the Canadian
Pacific Railway Parry Sound subdivision, by section foreman Con-
zani, who while patrolling the track
near Brignall recently discovered
two large iron nuts on top of the
rails, securely fastened with hay
wire. Tht foreman had just time
to unfasten the wire and remove
the nuts to clear the track for a
train was due in five minutes. Two
boys in the vicinity admitted, after
questioning, that they wired the
nuts to tht rails. They were sentenced to the local shelter for one
month and their fathers were required to give bond and report to
the authorities for two years.

parents' honor — Eric Lazcnby, Wm.
Brown, Edgar Rcid, Allan Baillic, David Charlton, M. Tamura, Eric Jackson and Jas. F. Brown, the last named
taking his M. A. course, and at the
same time lecturing in the University
in trigonometry and algebra. He will
next term have geometry also.
Attending the Vancouver Normal
School are Laura Madill, Hazel Trcm-

Is it not a coincidence that the eight
university students are all boys while
the four Normalites are girls. Stick
a pin here for thought.

The Pitt Meadows assessment shows
a slight reduction for 1924. The collector's roll showed $13,210.57 collected

Evidence given by farmers before tbe U.S. Tariff Commission
showed that under American railway rates a bushel of wheat could
bt hauled only 85 miles for one
cent, while under Canadian rates
the same amount of monay would
move the same amount of grain 86
miles. American farmers claim that
this is a saving in favor of the
Canadian producer of 44 per cent,
or about 8 cents a bushel. The reason given for the difference is that
in the United States grain rates are
based on cost of moving It to-day,
while in Canada they are based on
1897 costs, when the Crow's Nest
Pass agreement was made between
the Government and the Canadian
Pacific. <

the discoverer c,r lho Insulin trentnienl tor diabetes, is a well deserved tribute j
and recognition of what has been hulled throughout the medical world as Ih
greatest boon conferred on mankind in preventative medicine since the ill
coverles of Pasteur. And Dr. Banting lias conferred additional honor upon;
himself by Immediately donating (16,000 of Ills prize money towards the cstab-|
lishment oi' a Fund for medical research in Canada.
The whole world Is at lust beginning lo take seriously to heart tbe mi Hi
of the old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth u pound ot euro. Governments the world over, assisted by great voluntary organizations like the
anli-Tuberculosls Associations, the Ked Cross Society, and kindred bodies,
anil nii'ii-ol' groat wealth, are engaged in work of the most energetic kind noi
only to find scientific means of combatting nnd preventing disease, but in edu-
catlng the masses of the people everywhere that by lhe adoption and adherence to simple health rules most, of the sickness anil disease, and consequent
sufT, ring that now n fillet s tho human race can be completely banished.
Vellow fever, once the scourge of certain countries; is now practically
unknown. 11 has been isolated into a few small areas and successful efforts
nre now in progress to stamp it out entirely. It has been established that
through the use of toxin anti-toxin people ran be niaile immune from diphtheria. Smallpox, once a common disease which carried off people, by the
thousands, Is now quite rare, and most of the cases which develop of a mild
type.     II. too, is being wiped out.
Tuberculosis is siill a terrible scourge, but it has now been demonstrated
that it Is not an incurable disease, and if treated in its earlier stages can be
successfully overcome. More Important still is Hie arousing of people generally to a knowledge that tuberculosis enn be prevented by the adoption of
simple rules of living, plain wholesome food, lois of fresh air and sunshine.
In fact, nature has provided tree of charge nil lhe essentials of good
health If people would only make use of them. Sleeping iu rooms with windows open and kept fresh and clean by sunshine and fresh air, instead of closing them up like prison cells. If followed in all homes would do more lo
eradicate tuberculosis lhan all lhe sanatoria ever built, ll would result In
stronger healthier children both physically nnd menially. Next in Importance to fresh air anil sunshine comes lhe plentiful use of water and milk.
The adoption of habile of cleanliness, washing the hands before handling food, care of tho teeth, protection or the homes against Hies, the careful!
disposal of all refuse and rubbish, and the guarding against contamination of
the water supply—these things do nol cosl much money and if systematically
followed do not lake much tlnio. If persisted In Ihey will result in better
huiltli nnd in lhe su Ing of countless dollars in doctor, drug nnd hospital bills,
to say nothing of Hie greater prosperity accruing to lho home and individual
througl) increased earning powei resulting from good henllh, a strong body
and a clear mind,
.Many people complain of hard limes and of accumulated debts, nnd all
too li'ciiuontly give as an excuse thai they have had much sickness, with consequent heavy expense on the one hand and loss of earning power on the
oilier. Um they never stop to consider that. Instead of such sickness being
an excuse, It In many Instances merely conslitutos an Indlotmenl of iliem-
solvcs; Dial Hn-y are not only Ihemsojves responsible for the hard limes and
accumulated dobts, bill tor tho sickness from which ihey or Ihelr families
have suffered and whloll brought on their flminclnl dllllciillios.

Deplores Pessimistic Outlook
Everyone Should  Help in  Reconstruc
tion of World Says Rev, Henry
van Dyke
The appearance of so many pessl-
mlslli; books of lale was deplored
by the Itev. Dr. Henry van Dyke In
ii sermon in the Park Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York, of which his
only son, tho Rov. Torlius van Dyko,
is lhe pastor. "When Elijah went
into Hie cave he had a bad case ol
pessimism," declared Dr. vun Dyke.
"Ho thought, all the world was wrong,
going to Hie had, anil Hint he only was
faithful to God und to duly, lie attempted to prove Ibis by having nothing more to do With tho world and isolating himself in n cave. There aro
many men today affected by this form
of self-righteous pessimism. They
tell US I hat tho 'great Nordic race' is
vanishing, that 'the revolt against civilization is sure to succeed, that 'Eur-
ope Is hopeless,' and therefore America should keep out of il, and so on.
What is this bill going into the cave?
The si ill, small voice of (lod calls us
to come out, to bear a hand In the
struggle for right, to do our duty and
trust Hod for victory.

"Vou responded to Europe's need

ns to cross tho Atlantic Ocean, when
tho British fleet is about."
Deacrlblug the terrible toll of life
and property taken by the world war
and admonishing the United States
not to think too harshly of Europe, he
.said: "There woro empires in Europe

it has been shocked out of its course.
Don't be hard on Europe.
"What is the real problem in Europe
today? 1 will tell you. In spite of
the war, because Europe has been
left so much to herself, she still believes in force.     Why?
"Prance says, 'Justice never' gave

"Poland says, 'Force came at the
end of 150 years, and unlocked the
door of our nationality.'
"The Russian peasant says today:
'We never saw the light of liberty
until the revolutionist came with his
power, and blew our prison walls

"What does Germany say? tier-
many says: 'Wo trusted to justice.

Control Of Insects
Natural Enemies Should be Used to
Help Fight Farmers' Pests
The value of the natural enemies ol
injurious insects as a means of successful control was the topic of an address at a meeting of the Entomological Society of Ontario, given by Dr. A.
F. Burgess, of the Entomological
Branch of the United States lit Melrose, Mass.
Dr. Burgess lias made a special
study of tho gypsy and brown tall

natural enemies of these insects were
; a powerful means of control, and that
in the case of all other Injurious ln-
; sects natural enemies should be Intro-
I duced from the native soil of lhe pest
so as to keep them Under control.
j    Norman     Crlddle,     Entomological
i Branch at Treesbank, Man., spoke ol

mentioned lhe wheat slem eawfly as
the  moat   serious   pest  of  wheat   In

To Enforce Game Regulations
■^ Patrolling Potts for Game Guardians
In Saskatchewan
Advices from Norlliern Saskatchewan indicate that the hlg game season this year will be a prolific one as
an abundance of moose ami woodland
caribou has been met with In lhe
north. To niake certain that the
game regulations will be observed the
government authorities have evolved
a plan for the erection of game guardians' cabins nt various strategic
points anil at the present time have
flflecn of these put up. They are
located at places where trulls cross
or where trail meets river and so arranged that huntel'S going Into the
country or coming out will have lo
pass llicin when the guardian will be
able to check up on their game bags.
These cabins are built about twenty-
live miles apart while under arrangements made with the forestry department the cabins used by the lire rangers are also available to lho provincial
game department men. As a result
of this arangcrnent n complete chain
of observation posts Is now praoUcally

nor would it have prevented, as Sect-clary Hughes emphasized In his letter
of refusal to sign, Ihe various powers
from supplying each oilier with arms.
Its main effect, like that of all lhe
other Paris treaties, would havo been
to aid the victorious powers In preserving their domains. Near Hi'
main manufacturing plan! of the biggest French munition firm is n luxurious clubhouse, erected for the entertainment, of customers. Among the
trophies of lhe main entrance hall are
framed photographs of half the prewar sovereigns of Europe, wiih their
retinues, who had come there to purchase artillery and other war implements.     It is a gruesome sight.
In the meantime Hie whole subject
of traffic in arms needs the earnest
study of all friends of peace. Undei
what, circumstances is the sale of a
cannon to be permitted, a machine
gun, a rifle, a revolver? To reach
unanimity on these subjects Is not
easy. So much depends on the point
of view. The advertisements of the
revolver manufacturers, for instance,
always picture Hie goods offered for
sale as being used In the defence of
peaceful homes. They never hint
peaceful homes. They never hint that
the weapons recommended also meet
Hie requirements of the housebreaker
and marauder. The international
situation is similar, Appropriations
for armaments are always asked for in
lhe name of peace, for defensive purposes. And yet there are wars.'
Likewise, It will be urged that If war
Implements are not to be bought, how
can oppressed races ever hope to gain
independence? Modern arms canuoi
be made except by elaborate machinery, but they can easily be smuggled.
The obverse side of (he shield Is lho
secret aid given by some powers to
lhe rebellious subjects of another power. Though perhaps justifiable under certain circumstances, the motive
Is seldom ml altruistic one. More of
ten private manufacturing concerns
make large profits from smuggling
arms and thereby Incite disorder.
Sometimes tho sale of munitions of
war Is a part of an official though perhaps secret political programme, In
which ease only a general treaty providing far a limitation of armaments
can be effective, in 191ft, men close

Mrs. McMahon  Tells   How She
Found Relief by Taking Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
Chatham, Ont.-" I took Lydia K.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for a
rundown condition after tho birth of
my baby boy. 1 had terrible pains and
backache, and was tired and weak, not
fit to do my work and enre for my three
little children. One day I received your
little book and rend it, and gave up taking the medicine 1 had and began taking
tho Vegetable Compound. I feci much
better now and am not ashamed to tell
what it haB done for me. I recommend
it to any woman I think feels as I do."
—Mrs. J. R. McMahon, 153 Harvey
St., Chatham, Ont.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, made from roots and herbs, haa
for nearly fifty years been restoringsick,
ailing women to health and strength. It
relieves the troubles which cause such
symptoms as backache, painful periods,
irregularities, tired, worn-out feelings
andnervousness. This is shown again and
again by such letters aa Mrs. McMahon
writes, as well as hy one woman telling
another. These women know, andaru
willing to tell others, what it did for
them; therefore, it is surely worth
your trial.
