Suiting tlie iu-ilon to the word, and
quickly descendiug, she was soon ou
terra  firm a, closely  followed  by her
alert  companion,     They circled the
remainder   or   the   island, and soon'
came 10 the west side of the steep
clay embankment  that    formed    iis;
north shore, and from which they had
seen the eagle come out of her nest.
They   now   had    to work their way
through the thick tangled underbrush
that crowned the top of iiiis bauk.
They  followed  close  along  iis  edge■
fill   they   came   to the overhanging)
tree lhat  marked the loeaiion of the'
hole  from  which  Ihey had seen the j
eagle emerge.    About twenty feet btj-1
low, at the foot of the steep bank, was!
ft narrow fringe   of   boulder   stones
against which tlie   wavelets   lapped.j
Looking over ihe.edge, Ronald noted
thai the steep bank offered no secure
foothold ihat would enable them to descend lo the level of the hole, which
was between four or five feet below
the  to]> edge  of  the  bank.      Rising
above and slighl ly  leaning over the
bank, a clump of birch   trees   grew,
some of which were not mon than two
Inches in diameter.     He tested tlie
flexibility   of   two   of these and con
celved   Lhe  noi ion  that,  by  bending
them over the edge,   ihey   could   be I
used as support,    while,    by    digging
holes in the clay bank with llieir toes,
they would be enabled thus lo work
their way down and get a took into
the nest.    He first tested lite scheme,
and demonstrated its feasibility, and
assured himself of its safety.
They ilien look a tree each, bent il
over the bank, and began the descefit.
By carefully working their toes into |
the clay bank they secured safe fool-
holds and descended step by step.
They wen- soon rewarded by getting
a, peep into a real eagle's nest.,Nestling within wen- two little eaglets,
newly hatched, and cunningly looking
like iwo linle fluff balls. Mary was
enraptured by their innocent beauty.
"Oh, aren't Ihey cute!" she cried. "I
can scarcely believe that Ihey can
grow lo be cruel eagles!"
"Yes; they are cute now," said Ronald, "but I think we had better get out
ni this before the old eagles come
along and offer to fight us for the protection Of their young. It would be
awkward for us in our present position, for we cannot fight back to defend ourselves."
Their curios.iy being finally satisfied, thej carefully began to retrace]
their steps. But, when ihey nearly!
reached the top, Mary, with a cry of.
horror cried: "Oh| I'm tailing!"

was on a level witli ihe distressed girl
who was commencing to show signs
of the strain she was undergoing. Encouraging her lo hang on, he set himself with bulb feel now iu deep strong
footholds. Reaching ovot1 he passed
his lefl arm around her WA is I and pulled her towards him, and, bidding her
thus, he said: "Now, .Miss Fraser, you
are quite safe, but. set your foot on
lop of my toes and rest a while."
This she did. and though al first very
nervous, she soon regained confidence
ami again commenced lo work her way
up to the top, which she regained
without further mishap this time, with
Ronald Following close behind her.
She sal for a lime on lop of the
hank io regain her breath and composure after her exciting experience.
Soon she felt sufficiently composed
and rested. "Mr. MacRae," she said,
"1 havo had all 1 want of bird's nesting now. The m xt bird's nest I am
going to seek shall be tlie lunch basket, and, if yon are ready, we shall go
and Mint for il right now."
"1 think," he said, "that 1 quite
agree wiih you. Il will be much safer and more desirable at the present
moment than eagle's nest hunting:
and I have a keener appetite to tackle
a lunch basket lhan anything else jusl
They had sufficient bird's nest hunting for the day, though every moment
of it was a joy and a pleasure to Ihem
both. They soon worked their way
through the tangled underbrush lo the
landing place. Mary quickly had the
contents of the lunch basket spread
out before them. The outing had
given them both a hearty appetite and
they Were both quite read) to enjoy
the lunch she had prepared.
"Oh, .Miss Fraser," this looks *good
to me now," said Ronald as he sealed himself on the grass beside the
deWcacies which she had set out on a
clean white cloth on the glass. "1
didn't think lhat you»had gone to so
much trouble to prepare a lunch, but,
now that you have, everything looks
to me tempting and appetising."
"It was no tumble at all, Mr. MacRae, mother is always so good at having many things ready in the house,
and ali I had to do was lo pack them
into tbe basket. Have some of these
sandwiches. I like sandwiches best
for n lunch like this; ihey are always
"They look tempting, and, I am
sure, they are equally as tasty. Your
mother makes such delicious bread,
and, with this home-cured ham and
fresh butter, it seems to me like food
fit for the gods, especially after being
fed on ihe military rations such as
we have had for tlie past four years.
They were appetising enough when
oneSvas good and hungry, but one had
to be good and hungry to enjoy them."
"Vour experiences must have been
interesting and exciting. I have often
wished thai. I had been a man so that
I mlghl have enlisted and gone on Uie
expedition. Ro you think I would
have made a good soldier?"
"Vour riding skill would have qualified you for a scout. I think you
would have made a good one, and it
would have given you all the exciting
experiences one would have wished."
"Let me help you to some lea. and
have some of this cake. I made it
"In that case, I'll have some of It
and take chances."
"All, Mr. MacRae. lhat Is not so
complimentary. I'll taste it myself
first, so that if It is lo have fatal effects, I shall die first."
Thus the conversation progressed
while tlie pleasure seekers enjoyed
their dainty lunch. All traces of the
cstrangemi nt of the past, three days
seemed to have been forgotten. Deep
in his heart, though, the sling of his
disappointment remained, and although alleviated somewhat by her
present cheerful mood, it only became
Intensified as the thought of it kept
recurring. Against this feeling it
was hard for him to maintain an outwardly cheerful mood. Gradually a
feeling of depression look hold of him.
and tlie conversation commenced t»
lag. until at last, he stretched oul on
lhe grass and relaxed into complete
silence for a time. Tills attitude, as
though in sympathy, she, also, in a
short lime assumed.
Thus they lay In niulual silence, and
holh seemed inwardly worried, Mary,
however, was the first to break the
silence as she nervously arose to a
silting posilion on the grass.      With
a dreamy far-off look in her eyes, she
Said: "Mr. MacRae. do you ever get
lonely al times? Oil. ro really, really
lonely that you do nol know what to
flu with yourself; so lonely thai you
would like lo fly far. far away where
ihere are many people who are so
happy that they do not know whal
loneliness means?     I often do."
At that very moment the gist of her
questions seemed intensely personal tn
him, He sal Up wllh a start, with
aroused suspicion that she was reading bis very thoughts. Looking ill
her intently lie said: "Miss Fraser,
you are reading my very though is
correctty. I am depresslngly affect*
ed by that very feeling just at the
present moment. It is not due to a
desire lo fly far away, but lo my regret Unit ll is expedient that ] should
have to go away."
"That is Interesting and odd, Mr.
MacRae. Sometimes," she said. "I
wonder if It is wrong of me to feel
llial way, and I try to pul, the feeling
away from me, but I cannot. I love
this country: ll is beautiful. -I love

"Dili this disappointment," Mr. Godfrey continues, "was due largely to

Hammond, B.C.,
July 2,  1924.
To  Kilitnr of Gazette.
Sir—I notice that Maxwell Smith
deplores Ihe loss of Fnrris and Mary
Ellen, and snubs thc Liberals of
Maple Itidge for causing his downfall. Tiie defeated candidate will
find that in the rout of the Vancouver two, and a better type of candidate for this riding, Dewdney will
run n much better chance of swinging into the Liberal column.
When Doukhobors were brought
into B.C. an evil was done—it was
intensified alarmingly by permitting
them to gather in what may be
culled "Douk" settlements. These
people have proven themselves
more foreign to our customs and institutions than ever did the denizens from Asia. Nor are they, after several years' stay in the province, showing any betterment. Within the past two years they have
burned down eight public schools—
the latest one, the Krcstora, on Friday last. Their acts are fully disloyal, and their presence a constant
menace. In the burning of the
schools it was merely foresight on
the part of the lady teachers that
they were not consumed with the
schools, as their residence in each
case, formed a part of the school
building. Enough of this d'sreflard
for law and disrespect for all authority. It is time for the authorities
to take a firm hand, and either compel obedience or else expel the deluded firebrands from the Province.
Nor should action bo delayed.
Haney may well be proud
of its garage of that name.
At the first of the year,
the proprietor, Mr. S. Mus-

sell 100 Ford cars before
the year end. Our reporter
was inclined to take this
"in at one ear and out at
the other," or, as the man
of the street would say,
"with a grain of salt."
Well, half the year has
hardly passed and yet this
progressive firm has sold
85 cars,   where its—really
his—quota was 12.
Taking the 925 families
from the Pitt to the Stave

calculation at a dozen sales

An independent authority hns
placed the annual expense bill of
the forest prooducts of British Columbia at  $100,000,000.
This may roughly be made up as
under :
Labor   $..50,000,000
Freight, rail and ocean,
Towing, stevedoring, harbour dues, insurance      5,000,000
Repairs,   new   equipment,

supplies       12,000,000
Royalties  and  taxation      0,000,000
Miscellaneous          2,000,000
This very conservative estimate
based as it is upon the buying capacity of over 3,000 concerns, demonstrates to what an enormous extent the business houses of the province are dependent upon the lumber industry for their turnover,
and what a catastrophe the withdrawal of such purchasing power
would mean to the community.
A considerable percentage of thc
expenditures detailed above benefit
large concerns, but the storekeepers
get their turn when the employees
of the industry spend their wages.
There are 40,000 men who clothe,
feed and amuse their families and
themselves out of the lumbermen's
If the industry's workers spent
on an average as little as $15 a
week on rent, food, clothing, and
other necessaries, it is easy to see
how badly the storekeeqers would
fare without their custom.

For It's rather hard for me to express my thoughts in rhyme.
We had a poem in  our paper:  all
about the modern girl,
And It seems as though that poem
set a whirl-wind all awhlrl.
There's been come-backs    on    that
poem,    all    have    to   do  with
modern folks,
And some of our modest poets have
set down some pretty jokes.
Now we want to change the subject,

Yes,  we hear It, everywhere, "thla
Is Leap Year, girls, you know,"
And some peoplo have the notion we
should take the boys In tow.
Don't  you  think one's  friends are
getting quite familiar when they

For most of the men aro timid, and
they hate to tell you no.
And  I also will remind you,  If he

You're entitled to a mr, or perhaps

Now, I ask you how you'd like It, If

An,l  sometime  when he was angry
he'd come up to you and say
'This ls what I get from Leap Year!

The big feature play at the local
playhouse this week is "Lucretin
Lombard," a sensational story of
Flaming Passion." A spectacular
and thrilling forest Are, a flood,
and breaking oi a dam with dar-
daring rescues from the raging
mountain torrent, are two scenes
that nre worth walking a long distance to see. Published ns a serial story in the Pictorial Review,
then as the season's best seller as
a novel now in its seventeenth edition, the screen version is a splendid tribute to the authorss.
"Lucrtia Lombard" is a WBrner
Brothers' classic of thc screen and
will play at thc Hammond Theatre
next Thursday. It abounds in
strong characterizations. Irene Rich
and Monte Blue are co-starred, with

Ironi some potto) or undertaking, thai is no reason why they should oppose
policies which will admittedly greatly asslsi oilier portions of Canada and add

Thai Is in say Mini the niuch-to-be-deslreil bettor understanding between
lhe Easl and Wesl of Canada canuol be realized simply by stressing iis need
mil Importance, li can, and will, only be brought aboul when a less narrow
rlow Is entertained by the majority of Canadians; when a broader national
viewpoint and vision is accepted; when a spirit of compromise is recognized
mil acted upon.
The loudest preachers of national unity are to be found In Toronto, anil
by Hie same token the narrowest conceptions of how that nalional unity ls to
be promoted are entertained in the same city. Thus a Toronto weekly publl-
callon wiih a Dominion-wide circulation devoted a whole page of a recenl
Issue in an Illustrated article in opposition to the completion of the Hudson's
Hay Itiillway as an oullei for Western products, llul ihis snme paper Is a
strong advocate of the deepening of the St. Lawrence in order lo admit oceangoing vessels lo the tlreni Lakes.
This Toronto paper also argues for lho placing of n practically prohibitive duly on out-of-season frtills anil vegetables from the United States, and
In favor of the development of trade In tropical and semi-tropical fruits with
lhe British Wesl Indies. Even assuming that such a policy would work no
hardship on the people of Eastern Canada, what about tha West? Is the
West lo be denied such fruits and vegetables altogether, or are our people lo
be made lo pay the cost of haulage from the Atlantic seaboard in refrigerator curs'.' Can Hits paper noi broaden lis vision lo encompass the whole Dominion, and realize that what might prove all right for the Easl does nol
necessarily apply to other parts of Canada'.'
A third example of narrowness of vision Is revealed by this Toronto
paper when It charges thai it is the declared Intention of Messrs. Crerar,
Forke, llnoy anil oilier members of the Progressive group "lo make war on
industrial Canada." These gentlemen believe the best iuterests of Canada
as a whole demand a lowering ot tariff ilmtes on the basic implements and
needs ot production, but lhat does not mean Ihey are engaged in the task of
destroying the manufacturing industries of lhe Dominion. Any such charge
is boih dishonest and untrue, anil Ihe making of such allegations is nol calculated to bring about that better understanding and nalional unity which lhe
Toronto journal desires.
It would be jusl as reasonable lo charge lhat, because It Is the declared
intention of Eastern manufacturers lo light lor the retention of every bll of
tariff protection Ihey now enjoy, and lo secure as much more as they can,
lhe; are animated by a desire to destroy tlie industry of agriculture In this
count ry.
Neither the Easl nor lhe West are alone to blame for tills lack ol nalional
unity, for tlie narrowness of vision which is so often displayed. Responsibility for the prevailing sentiment must be borne by all. Nevertheless, we
believe it is solemn truth Hint the people of lhe.Wesl are much more broad-
ininilii! and far-seeing than those of our Eastern cities.
The original settlement of these Western Provinces was by men and
women from the Eastern Provinces. They are still the backbone of the
West notwithstanding the Influx nl'other peoples. They know bolh the East
anil lhe Wesl, whereas the average Easterner who came West have learned
by actual experience, nol theory, lhat,the traditional policies accepted and
favored in lhe Easl will nol meet our broad Dominion-wide interests.
H ls because of their larger national oultook, and their belter knowledge
of Canada unit Canadian conilllions as a whole, that lhe people of the Wesl.
are determined lo bring aboul needed changes and reforms. It fs through

(By Dr. J. H. Grisdale)
Greal Brllalu Is at presenl lhe one
great food purchasing country in ihe
world, a Tew oilier countries like
France, Holland ami Italy, buy some
comparatively small quantities of such
products. Tills buying Is, however,
done«moro or less spasmodically. At
tlie same time ninny couutrles export,
or lire In a position lo export, large
quantities ot agricultural products
which are usually human food of one
kind nr another. Some of the more
Important of these food exporting
countries besides •Camilla are tin,
United Slates, Argentine, Australia,
New Zealand and India. The l'nited
States export under normal conditions corn, wheat, incut—chiefly bacon
or pork—uifd fruits, particularly apples; Argentine exports beef and
wheat; Australia sends nut dairy produce nnd wheat; Now V.011I11111I ships

countries export eggs nnd a number

Camilla can and does export wheat,
oals, barley, flax, butler, cheese, beel
cattle, bacon, eggs nnd apples. In
the esse of only one of these articles
does she hold premier place among
exporting count ties, namely, wheat.
She is thus compelled to sell all her
produce, wheal Included, on a market
the only market there is, nnd a market
open to the world, hence, against the
very keenest sort of competition.
When It conies to buying food tht,
Britisher knows no favorites or
friends, he buys where he can get the
articles that please him best at the
lowest price. To sell on this market
therefore, Canada must put out an
article equal to, if not superior to, that
offered by any other country, and she
must sell It at a price quite as reasonable as that asked by nny other
country for produce of similar quality.
The fact of the matter ls she must
take practically any price Great I3ri
tain offers since there Is no other outlet for most of her surplus food products.
This may sound rather discouraging
»t the morfion', but here Is the re
deeming feature—Great Britain will
pny just a little bit more for the best
grade goods than she will for the
average run or fqr the inferior grades
and will buy more generously when
such goods are offered. The Britisher is exceedingly keen on quality and
here is where Canada has her real

It used to be tlie mistaken idea that

chances in favor of failure, but in the
majority of eases failures cull be traced directly to neglect. Unless the

find sufficient moisture practically
everywhere. That the prairie Is naturally a tree country is shown conclusively by the rapidly increasing
groves of native aspen poplar, the extension on every hnnd of unlive bush
and the innumerable groups of trees
from 3 to 30 feet high. Forty years
ago the country west of Brandon was
quite bare, now the native tree catches
the eye for 200 miles further west.
Nearly every farm on both sides of
the railway has tree growth, and while

rapidly nearlng Its end,
it is only by working in Nature's
way thai these fine results have been
achieved. Moisture Is Indispensable
io ii growth, lis loss is occasioned by the action of the sun and wind.
Copying Nature's method, the inlelll-
jgenl settler plants his trees close to-
gi-ilu-r so that tlie moisture robbers,
sun and wind, carnot dry up Ihe soil
at their roots, the soil beneath tlio
trees ls cultivated and in dry years an
artificial mulch is applied.
li is always "the best policy to keep
trees away from the farm buildings as
this gives enclosed and protected
ground for the garden, orchard, alfalfa patch, root ground and the all
Important seed plot. A substantial
plantation of about 12 or 16 rows
wide with a snow trap outside lo
catch the snow will save the trees
from being broken. Caragana and the
Russian Poplar have been found to answer best for the purpose.
The systematic planting of these
strips across the fields have proven
one of the settler's greatest assets.
They protect the soil from drifting,
the crops from blowing away or shattering and prevent the snow nnd ruin
from being wasted. The moisture the
farmer can keep Is of more Importance
on the prairie than the molslure he
gels, nnd becomes the most important
of the country's natural resources.
A forceful example of tree protection was shown at the Scott Experimental Farm when three limes ns
ninny potaloes per acre were grown
behind a belt of trees as there were
in lhe open.
Another highly Important natter In
a dry country is the fact that behind
a belt of trees there Is from 25 to (12
per cent, iess water lost, as compared
wllh no protection.
The shelter strip across the fields
will alone save lhe clean farmer from
tremendous loss each year from the
wind-blown weeds from the hind of his
careless neighbor.
The country has at last realized that
without trees a real home is an itn-
posslbllily, and that in Iree planting
lies the key tr the building up of
prairie communllies.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 2,  11)24.
For some time past chickens have
mysteriously disappeared from the
roosts of the west end of Agassiz.
Finally Mrs. John Hocking lost a
valuable hen which was within two
days of bringing off a nice brood
of chicks. This time the hen was
found a short distance from the
chicken house and partly eaten.
Shortly tfaer this another chicken
was taken, after which they were
more carefully fastened up, so-that
no more wore taken. About 5 a.m.
one morning Mrs. Hocking heard a
disturbance among the hens, and
on looking out of the windaw saw
some animal on the window sill of
the chicken house, but it disappeared before she could get close
enough to see what it was. At
this stage of the game an experienced hunter was called in, who
decided it must be a raccoon. So
traps were set and everything made
ready to give the marauder a hot
reception on his return. But he
never came back. After some
time had elased, Teddy Clark and
Betty Jenkins were on their way
home when they saw some animal
up in a big tree just back of Mr.
Wm. Clarke's farm. Teddy immediately reported what they had
seen, with the result that Mr. and
Mrs. Clarke, who by this time
were joined by some of the neighbors, went to investigate and discovered an old coon and three
young ones in the tree. This is
where the excitement commenced,
As Mrs. Clarke remarked they had
more excitement than at the election. Charlie Smith was enlisted
with a gun and brought down the
big coon, which measured 3 feet
from tip to tip. The next thing
was to fall the tree in order to capture the baby coons, which was not
accomplished until about 10 p.m.
that night. The little coons are now
in captivity, but at present are very
hostile. Mrs. Clarke is in hopes
she mil be able to raise one of thc
little fellows, one having gone to
the Mountain Road camp, the third
was injured in falling the tree, and
it is feared may not recoover. No
more chickens have been reported
missing so far.

scenic nature is at her best.
Towering peaks rise to the north,
south, east and west: mirrored in
the beauty of placid lakes whose
shores provide shelter for the
myriad wild life for which the
largest of all Canada's national
parks ia famous.
Whether the tourist goes sightseeing by motor car or by the more
romantic pack pony, Jasper National Park offers him the best
that can be found anywhere
Motor roads and pack trails radiate
in every   direction   from Jasper
Park Lodge, the magnificent log
cabin hotel of the Canadian National Railways, and the tourist
may engage either ponies and
guides or an automobile and thus
see the mountains at his pleasure.
Mount Edith Cavell, named to
honor the memory of Britain's
heroic nurse, rises by the side of
Mount Sorrow, within a short drive
of the Lodge and is one of the
favorite drives of visitors to the
Lodge. The Cavell highway,
smooth-surfaced, winds up toward
the very foot of the Ghost Glacier,
presenting to the visitor a new
vista of scenic wonders at every
turn. As one rides toward the
foot of the glacier, the Athabasca
Valley far beneath presents an attractive picture of calm loveliness,
while here and there a lake, reflecting blue sky and sunshine,
adds its touch to the beauty of the
landscape. There are other drives
which may be taken in comfort-
one may go in an hour, for instance, to the wonderful Maligne
Canyon, one of the natural wonders of the entire Rocky Mountain
region, where rushing waters go
tumbling and boiling through a
narrow aperture worn in the rock,
two hundred feet below the feet of
the tourist as he or she stands on
one of the footbridges which span
its narrow width. At any turn of
the road the visitor may find himself face to face with a bear or a
deer, walking calmly across tbe
highway, while on the aides of the
mountains he may see mountain
sheep or goats grazing.
Tlie tourist to whom riding appeals will find plenty to hold his
attention. Pack trails may be followed for miles, when In the company of an efficient guide, one may
set forth to explore regions which
are beyond the reach of the motor
tourist. The wondrous Maligne
Lake and Medicine Lake, with their
quota of mountains reaching down
almost to the water's edge, Jnw
more and more tourists every year.
For years the wonders of Canada's national parks have been
better known outside of Canada
than they have been to Canadians,
but year by year Canadians themselves are realizing that they have,
in their own country, scenic attractions which are not surpassed
anywhere in the world, and consequently the number of Canadians
registering at Jasper Park Lodge
is showing remarkable increases.
Comfortable, steam-heated cabins
are provided for their accommodation, an excellent cuisine ia maintained at the main Lodge, where
surroundings and service are of
the world famous Canadian National Railways standard and every
care Is taken to see that visitors to
Canada's largest and finest national park enjoy their outing to
the full.
