Woman's Institute
The regular monthly meeting of the
Women's Institute took place Tuesday afternoon at the Maple Hall,
presided over by Mrs. W. B. McFarlane. A very large and enthusiastic
body of members and visitors were
assembled to enjoy a highly interesting and varied program prepared
for the day. Proceedings opened
with the singing of the Maple Leaf,
followed by the minutes of the January meeting being read and approved and disposal of otber business.
The social part commenced with an
excellent solo contributed by Mrs. E.
D. Irelnnd. Mrs. H. H. McClure was
then called upon to give a paper on
"How Women May Become Self-supporting in Rural Districts." This
sublet was given at the convention
at Nelson by Mrs. McClure, who was
a delegate from tbo local Women's
Institute, and her apt and able manner e»f treating it prompted the directorate to invite her to repeat the
stlbject for the benefit of the members, wbo thoroughly appreciated it.
At the conclusion of her remarks,
Mrs. McFarlane suggested the paper
should be printed in the local press,
the matter being a weighty one with
women generally. Appended is the
"How Women May Become Self-supporting in Rural Districts"
"At first glance one would tbirt:
this an easy subject, but the more
you ponder on it the broader it becomes,
"Before deciding what line of work
to take up it wiil: greatly depend upon the individual woman herself.
Some would be in tbeir element when
engaged in out-do3r occupation, while
others would be like a fish out ot
water. Many think there is nothing
pays like keeping poultry and tbere
are many instances where women
bave made a splendid success at sucb
work, but cne does not want to get
carried away with the idea that there
is no work connected with it, for it
is a case where eternal vigilance is
tbe price ol success. One a'so need?
to taVe into consideration the size
and proximity of the available markets, for much better prices can be
obtained in the larger centres than in
smaller places, and if one has to
ship any distance it greatly- reduces
the profit.
"Then there are many who would
not make a success at poultry raising, and yet would do well at the
growing of small fruits and vegetables, both of which prosper in tbls
province. Our local markets are for
tbe most part well supplied with early vegetables, but one may do well
by growing tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, cabbage and celery for the
prairie markets where there is a good
demand and these are things which
will ship to good advantage. In the
case of small fruits, such as strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, red,
wblte and black currants, ill these
yield splendid returns for the labor
involved. Both of theso I have mentioned1—poultry raising and tbe growing of small fruits and vegetables-
require a great deal more of manual
labor than many women would care
to i undertake unless she has the business ability to make things pay sufficiently well to have the bard labor
done by hired assistance.
"But there ia another enterprise
which haa been largely overlooked by
women seeking means of self-support
and yet it requires much less labor
and gives greater returns for the

Knights of Pythias
One of tbe best and most interesting evenings was spent In the Knights
of Pythias Hall last Tuesday, the. occasion being the installation of the
officers for the ensuing term. When
the usual routine business had been
transacted E. A. Hi I. took up his position as installing officer, and was
assisted by C. Borgstrom as Grand

some of the ozone of enthusiasm in
their breasts that wlll bear fruit in
tbe near future.

said that he would do the best he
could for the project. Mr. Green I
drew the attention of those present
to the fact that the meeting assembling in Ottawa was, as far as he

The usual monthly meeting of th»

Young Men's Club
All roads led to the Young Men's
Club on Monday night when the flrst
game of the newly organized basket
ball league was played before a packed house.
Arrangements had been mnde for a
special night in order to create interest in the club end thc result exceeded all expectations. Early in the
evening the crowd begnn to gather,
end by the time the tirst event of
the evening, the girls' game, commenced the overflo.v crowd necessitated the placing of seatB on the basketball floor.
The girls' game was cn a par with
the program ifor the rest of the evening. The "Hicks" an.l "Macs" were
the opposing teams, and their playing time and time afan awake enthusiastic outbursts from the audience. The Play was fast and furious
and at half time only one po'nt separated the rivals, the "Hicks" leading 4-3. Tho same equality was
shown through the second ha'f wh:n
the whistle blew the tired "Macs"
led the equally tired "Hicks" by one
point, the final score being 9-8. The
girls showed skill at the game that
surprised the on-lookers, many of the
goals scored being of a sensational
nature. All starred, the scorers being Lilly Turn?r and V. Bradwin for
the Hicks and Edith Macdonald and
Enid Gill for tbe Macs. The centres
were evenly matched, while Delia
Greaves was the star of the bact*-
field, but the others were not far behind. The lineup—Macs, M. Turner
and E. Gill forwards, Edith Macdonald centre, D. Greaves and D. Kershaw guards; Hicks, L. Turner and
V. Bradwin forwards, G. Hickenbotham centre, B. Gill and E. Caslake
guards. Mr. Mirams, ns referee, made
a hit with the girls,by his impartial
handling ()f the contest.
During the interval between thc
girls and boyB' games Mr. Mirams
gave a clever exhibition on the parallel bars, time and again drawing applause for his skilful work.
The game between the "Stage" and
the "Beavers" then took place. The
teams started off with a rush, each
basket in turn being bombarded and
only the sterling work of the opposing sides kept the score down. The
rivalry of the players showed in their
inclination to rough it in tbe first
halt considerably witb the result
that fouls were numerous. At the
end Oi this period the score stood 11-
10 in favor of the Stags. Tbe second half started off just as fast but
the Stats found th?ir scoring eye
and soon drew ahead, but not without a struggle. The pace was stren-
iiois but the players did not let up
and were going faster at the finish
than when the game b'gen. At full
time th? Stags led 26-17. Dallas was
high scorer frr thc victors, annexing
14 points, while Ashworth acco nted
for nnarly all the losers' tnllies. The
llnvup—Stiigs, Crowe and Watinger
forwa-ds, Dallas centre, Br'ckeu and
'McNabb guards; Beavers, Gill and
Ricknrds forwa-ds, Ashworth centre,
St. Clair nnd Bridges guards, Bill

21st YEAR
CRANBROOK, B.C   February 6, 1915.
No. 6
The debate ou the address was
closed lust Friday afternoon by the
Hun. vv. r, l'o's. minister of lands,
iu a speech tbat was masterful, clear
and convincing, brushing away the
p.lly sophistry «ud calumnious
charges 0f Liberals ,md Socialists by
a magnificent sweep ol indisputable
facts and figures. Mr. Ross has made
many BPlend d addresses and speeches
during his career In parliament, but
never before has he been so overwhelming iu bis arguments, so forceful in his statements. There was no
attempt a* 8" apology for his department. Ou th: contrary a perfect
willingness to let the entire truth be
known so tbat the people might
judge fairly on the policy pursued by
his department. He did rot indulge
in flights o: oratory, but like the
surgical specialist laid bare the cold
facts on record. There was no mincing of words, no Macedonipn cries of
distress. He did not hesitate to declare tbat it was a condition, not a
theory, that . con'ronts tbe Government, the province and the people,
thi san:e condition tbat is confronting every civilized land today, and he
expressed the earnest belief that the
land uolicy of the government was
endorsed by those' who were familiar
with the fact and not controlled by
i'OlitiCfl   views.
Mr. Ross' speech was one of the
best made in parliament for years,
and will give him that privilege that
comes to every statesmen who meets
the critics of his party with a reply
that is fair and clear, absolutely devoid of personalities, partisan bitterness or cheap subterfuge. It is a
speech that should be read by every
man in British Columbia, as it is a
most valuable addition to the land
policy of the province. Mr. I Ross
stated that he was inclined to btelieve
that the criticisms of the last few
years was due more to the success of
the policy pursued by the department
rather than failure. The ten years,
from 1905 and ending 1914, the government had consented to a sale of
over 5,000,000 acres of land and the
amount received in cash from these
sales was $12,500,000, and it was to
a large extent, the receipt of this
money that had enabled the government to give such an impetus to the
progress of thc province and prosperity to the peort.e. Mr. Ross said
that tbe big land boom was due
more to the caprice of the public
tban to any legislation by the government. In 1905 tbe land Bales were
55,000.   In 1906 22S.000 acres. In 1909
the first appearance of tbe land boom,
645,000 acres were sold, and in 1910,
2,000,000 acres were sold. But in 1911
prices advanced to $10 and $15, and
there   were 900,000   acres EOld.     In
1912 cnl.v 200,000 acres were Bold.   In
1913 there were 42C.000 acres and last
year only 45,000 acres.
These I'g ires fully met tbe argu-
inmts of the opposition, since only
22i,000 acres were told in 1906 when
iand was practically one dollar with
DO reserves. Yet in 1909 with thc
price increased 150 per cent, and
nu n,- reserves made t;45,000 acres were
object of that time wns to make the
Btaker Of the land make an iillliliivit
as there had i been some frauds discovered regarding previous staking.
The official figures on arrears ol principal were about $9,000,000. Tbe
government could not lose as much
money bad been paid on these lands

Financial Assistance
to Farmers
Cranbrook, B. 0., Feb. 4.
Editor Prospector:
Sir,—I note that you invite criticisms of two petitions to the Dominion Parliament as suggested by Mr.
A. E. WattB. The one advising generous financial terms to encourage
farmers is akin to my ideals of Politics and I am neither a Liberal or
Conservative, but I approve of the
Policy of taking the best suggestions
and the cream df thought from all
sources for the common good. This
is far more commendable tban wasting energies in useless or inane,stuff
that ma'tes one despise the modern
press as the slave of party politics.
There is one thing very apparent
that the west must be developed
along agricultural lines if the great
cities are to be maintained and earning capacity given to the great network of railways. The cities and
towns are developed too far ahead
with no corresponding agricultural
and industrial support, tbe result is
crowded cities with hungry people.
It was a most cruel thing for thoBe
in authority to permit people to he
drawn to this country by advertisements as was done under the direction of the late Minister of Public
Works, the H0n. Clifford Sifton, and
he was hailed as a clever organizer
wbicb he would have been had he
properly and humanely completed his
work along the lines suggested by the
petition under consideration, and in
my opinion there can be nothing added to improve it except'to emphasize
the truth that when people are attracted to a country by governments
and by corporations, it is the duty
of both to protect and assist tbe
settlers, and this should be done as
set torth in the petition. I think
there would be no difficulty in getting half a million or more signatures in the west and armed with
such an expression of public opin'on,
a man of strong character with ability and determination no doubt could
get the measure passed, and the one
who succeeds in doing it, will do
more for the prosperity of western
Cannda than has ever before been attempted.   I rnel03e my address   and

amount invested than either of the
two mentioned that is bee-keeping. I
have no actual experience in this line
of work myself, but from what I understand from the experience of others it is a very profitable business. I
know of one man in Ontario whose
yield of honey for last year from 200
hives was 20 tons which he sold at
10c a pound, netting him $4,000. Had
he sold his honey In this province he
would in all probability have realized about doulte that amount. This
is an instance where I see' no reason
why women could not do eqjially as
well as a man.
"These things require more or less
capital, while many women are
thrown   entirely on their    own   re-
trict, but, alas, too often the old
story—n0 hei? to bc had.
"In conclusion I would like to say
to all mothers, by all means, let ua
see that our daughters are trained
thoroughly along some kind of work
so that if the day should ever come
that ,it would be necessary for them
to support themselves they will be in
a position to do so."
Mrs. J. Shaw was next called upon
to give her "First Aid" notes, taken
from a medical lecturer at the recent
convention in Nelson, and were found
to be every day meful remedies in

There .ire some people wbo still resort
to drugged pills or alcoholic syrups to
overcome colds, nervousness or general
debility, and wbo know that the pure,
unadulterated nourishment In Scott's
Emulsion is eminently better, but refrain
from taking it because tiny fear it may
lead to excessive fat or obesity.
This is a mistaken idea, because Scott's
Bmulsion first strengthens the body before
making flesh. Its blood-forming properties aid nature lo throw off sickness by
building health from its very source, and
flesh is formed only by its continued use.
Avoid alcoholic substitutes for SCOTT'S.

The Crfnbroo'f Herald, before asking the attorney-general's department
to wake up, should take a stick of
dynamite and blow out the cobwebs
that are evidently hanging around

to point out that the appointment
of th° police and license commissioners was known in the city by proper
authorities last Saturday. Police

Arrangements bave been made
whereby thc ordinary rate of two
cents per ounce applicable to all letters sent from Canada to the United
Kingdom, will apply to letters addressed to British and Canadian
troors on the continent. The rate
on ordinary letters from Canada tor
tbe continent is five cents for ffle
first ounce, and tbree cents for each
subsequent ounce, so that this extension of the two cent an ounce rate
to letters addressed to our soldiers
on the continent is a decided reduction in favour of correspondence going to the soldiers.

The inference made by the Herald
in one of their locals this week is to
the effect that it was the city who
opened the restricted district again.
For the Herald's information we beg
to point out that th3 order in council No. 262, approved on March 29th,
1910, his be:n rescinded, consequently the whole of th« "district" is under provincial control at the present
time. It would be well if the city
council or the board of trade or
some responsible representatives of
the citizens of the city and district
would bring the necessary pressure to
btar and let the government thoroughly understand that the citizens
of Cranbrook generally do not want
the restricted district and want it
dene away with at once.
