Glenlily  Valley
A Rising Fruit Growing District of  East   Kootenay
Borden   to Support  Move
For Good Roads
New Westminster, Jan. 24.—-Private
information received by W. J. Kerr,
President of the Canadian Highway
Association, from some of the members of Parliament-close to Premier
R. I.. Borden, foreshadow important
legislation with regard to roads in
in the Dominion of Canada. While
It is not advisable at this time to
make known Mr. llorden's intentions,
it is safe to predict that Canada's
tirst Conservative administration tor
sixteen years will recognize the rapidly growing interest in good roads
and will make a bid for public approval by devoting time, attention
and money to this worthy subject.
In his speech from the throne at
the opening of Parliament, in November, His Royal Highness the Duke
of Connaught touched upon the question of good roads, intimating that
It would be one of the subjects which
Would receive bis special attention.
His Royal HigbncsB, having traveled
has long since recognized the important factor tnat roads nre in the
material advance of a country, und
while bis position in a measure debars him from taking nn active part
In any scheme aimed at the betterment of roads, yet his sympathy Is
known to be wholly with this object
Tbe western members of pnrlin
ment will support Mr. Ilorden iu
bis endeavor to give Canada better
roads      .1.  D.  Taylor,  member    for
the New Westminster District, it
speech made at Langley a few days
ago, told the farmers of thnt district
that he would do all in bis power to
bring forward an improvement in the
standard of Canada's highway. He
pointed out tbat the Dominion Government at the time of confederation
made a Canadian Highway one of
the inducements offered to thia piov-
ince—a promise which today t-tlll
stands unredeemed.
With the immense strides which Oa-
dana has made of late years, and the
marked prosperity which she enjoys
at this time, roads can no longer be
treated as a negligible quantity.
The citizens demands, and must have
clans road as is the city resident. The
rock strewn trail was considered
good enough for the districts; the
farmer is as much entitled to a "rst
road as is the city resident. The
farmers nlways has been, but he
has not always Impressed the fact
strongly enough on the politician
and the statesman.
Now the time hns arrived when the
cry for good roads is general. It is
a matter for congratulation on the
part of the farmer, for those in high
places recognize thnt if be is not giv
en the transportation facilities to.
which he Is entitled, they will receive
their answer through the medium of
the ballot box.
to occur in every case, but in two
thirds of his customers doubts are
evinced as to whether he will ever
receive his dues.
As an instance, three merchants in
Cranbrook has told the writer that
they would jump with joy and consider themselves on easy street if one
third or their book debts of longer
than three months standing were
paid so that they could be crossed
off the books.
If anyone, can establisn credit of
the right kind they carry confidence;
but If, on the other hand, the confidence gained through credit becomes
annulled then a series of complications arise that may prove disastrous
to the party or parties most closely
The benefits that would accrue to
the people who are buyers it the
credit system, at present in vogue,
.vas stopped, would be a big surprise
to the would-be economist who desires credit for nn unlimited period.
Unlimited credit is but a bugbear
after all and the sooner everyone
awakens to the fact the sooner the
relations between the merchant aad
the customer will be better adjusted.
At present the merchants are regretting the fact tbat they have so many
people on their books who owe them
sums of various amounts and are
constantly wishing they would come
in and Pay Up, at the same time
afraid     to     respectfully     as     tbem
for   their   debts   for   fear   of
looked at and seriously considered.
The customer on the one hand is
looking for a place to buy his goods
at a reasonable price, while the merchant is looking for his Bhare of the
profits; let us see how this works
Kven with prices charged in Cranbrook today, to give a caBe that
came under the writers' personal observation thia week, a m&a and his
wife sat down and considered if tbey
could not considerably lower the
price it waa costing them for their
months' groceries, and they began
looking at in a business way; they
tint of all found out what it had
been costing them for several months
back and then went direct to tbe merchant and asked him what he would
charge for the months' supply if they
paid the cash for the goods they required. Upon the months' supply
they afterwards found they were $4.00
and a trifle more to the good for the
cash deal.
Circumstances will not allow everyone to lay out Buch a sum as thiB
would require, nor would it be possible to get in a supply for even two
weeks, but If every" family were to
make an effort to obtain a week's
supply at once and pay caBh for tbe
same they would find in many cases
that they were savers of even more
than juet the one $1.00 with present
With are assured by every merchant
stance we gave at the beginning    of I
this article,   tbey  went and had     a
straight talk   with    the     particular I
tradesman tbat they were dealing with i
asked to be    put on a   cash     basis, ]
phone for their requirements and pay
their accounts every  Saturday even- !
ing or Monday morning as the case j
might be,  this met     with approval,
and these are very well satisfied with
the results; they find it cheaper   and
more convenient.     than    being  faced
with   the   whole    month's    account
which amounts  in some cases to    a
big sum.
Our advice to all buyers is to first
ask what the CASH price on a bill
of goods Is, before tbey buy and they
will see for themselves more clearly
the exact amount in solid cash tbey
will save during tbe course of the
month's buying.
All this credit trouble is generally
speaking the tradesmen's own fault,
every merchant will admit that, and
if they havn't the moral couage to
devise means of their own so that it
can be brought to nn end we hope
the Citizens of Crnnhrook and District Will help them out for then-
own benefit. Self is a predominating
feature of human nature and it is to
this end we are trying to help the
people who are our constant supporters.

lines, we have taken it up believing
it will be the best nnd tbe cheapest
for our readers if they insist on buying for cash. And we invite nny of
our leaders to write us nnd let us
know the name and particulars of
any merchant in the city nr district
who will not reduce the price of a
week's cash groceries, or general
goods. Any communication accompanied with a non-de-plume, the writer must add his or her own signature, not necessary for publication,

Homemaking vs Housekeeping
PUH1.I0 opinion prescribes quite
exactly the duties of man and those
of woman in connection with home-
making. Of each it expects a certain
responsibility for the comfort and
happiness of the other sharers of the
family life. In addition it expects
mnn to earn the money that is ne
cessary for the maintenance of
home, and tbe woman to do
housekeeping. The chief work for the
home which it requires of man
can perform by continuing the occupation which be selected for himself
in early life because he thought he
should eujoy it. With this occupation
it does not expect his home-making
to  interfere.   On    the

course, securing both tho advantages
of home nnd the opportunity to
make use of special talents, women
Is being forced to a choice between
the two.
This condition of affairs is the result, natural perhaps
dttii-n-t in tho past,
time, not ?o many years ago, when,
except among the members of privileged elapses, the activities which
were necessary to home-making were,
in the case of man as well as of
woman, identical with those that represented tbe best outlet for special
talents. To make a home for wife
nnd children, the man hewed timber,
built a house, gathered fuel, and
raised food. Tn express her love for
her family, thi! Woman cared for
house and conked tbo fond. Nor did
society offer tn either a more nporinl*
!7eii occupation,
But Ihe time ennio when tho world
began to think tbnt there wan a great
Wftttfl of tlmo if! those individual
sires for food and shelter, and also
a groat diversion of energy from the
methods nf meeting the universal de
special talents with which Individuals
were endowed, nnd bo there was Instituted     a  system  ot  specialization
and co-operation, which hae with'
time grown more elaborate und intricate.
It was then that man made a discovery and received a reward for his
far-sightedness.   He saw that the activities that had before been both necessary to his home-making and also
the best way in which he could   use
his talents were    gradually dividing
themselves into two classes.     Those
of the first class were no longer either necessary to his home-making, nor
tbe best field that society offered for
the use of his peculiar powers. These
he passed over to specialists and became a specialist himself.   Ho passed
over tbe building of  houses to    the
carpenter and    the raising of wheat
to the farmer.   The activities of the
other class he .snw were still necessary to his home-making, and     although not specially adapted to his
abilities, he continued  to engage in
them for affection's sake.   Prom time
to time, however, he sees that one of
the activities of the second class has
passed over into the first class.   For
a long time he considered *tlu> care of
the furnace a part of his home-making.   Now in many cities there have
been    established     central     heating
plants from which hot water is sent
for the heating of many houses, tho
house-holders work  being reduced to
the occasional opening or closing of
a valve.   Incidentally, it may bo said
that it has not heen recorded of nny
man that when he connected his pri- >
vate plant with the public supply   ol
heat, It was with a hand that trembled for fear he might be thereby endangering the sanctity of homo life.
While mnn has been effecting    this
soperatlon,  women hns clung to   the
manifold tasks of    her housekeeping
as If they were still essential  to her
home-making nnd still  iho bent  nut
let for hor powers.   That she should
have done this for some    time after
man discontinued tho greater part of
his direct work for tho homo Is not
to be wondered  at,    In  the original
distribution    nf work  between     mnn
nnd woman, thou duties fell to tho
woman which were hest suited u tha
one who was the child-bearer and Wns
obliged to Btay  murh     in ono place
nnd care for young children.   Thus it
fell to hor lot to care    for tbo supplies which man    foraged to obtain
With this division uf labor, the ser
vices of man and    woman formed
continuous    channel     through which
the  world's  material   resources  were
brought to meet the needs of the fan
lly.   Of this channel  man  controlled
the en:l which communicated with tbe
outside world.   Into this he put sup
plies, as it wero, in the rough.     The
Woman   superintended   the  end    that
communicated  with tbe home.     She
received the supplies and did tbe line
work of adapting thom to the needs
of the family.   When society began ti.
take upon itself the work of supplying the physical needs nf the family,
it was natural  thnt it should   havo
assumed man's work first, nnd by doing that should  have gradually  pre
pared itself to assume woman's also.
It was quite natural, too, that oven
after It had qualified Itself to do wo
man's work, she should not have discovered the fact immediately, (or she:
was so much at home thnt. she   wai
slow to see what    was going on iu
the outer world.   Kor these reasons
wo must pardon a certain amount of
delay, but    there can  he no     doubt
that at present women is doing much
work, presumably in the Interest   of
home, which the Interests of homo no
longer demands, n fact which she has
now had plenty of time to discover.
The chief reason for this failure of
woman to adljust her life to changed
conditions is     the  widespread  heltel
that tho passing of private     housekeeping would   moan  the destruction
of the home.      As » matter of fact.

Glenlily Valley, is the name o' that
section ol the valley of the Moyie
river lying between tho C.P.R. main
line at Yank and the Idaho boundary

Glenlily Valley    has a   school, recently opened, a post-office, and is a

constructed  by  the Canadian  Pacific

near tbe centre     of  the    valley.      A
government  road parallels the 'Moyle

The year 1911 saw the dawning of an
new era in Glenlily Valley, nnd with
the advent of school, post  office new
roads and bridges, fl flag-station, nnd
tho organizing of B Farmers Institute
there is every indication that the new
ern will bo one of prosperity.
As a consequence land values havi
began to rise, but ns yet, far below

older fruit growing district. There
aro some -1,000 to 5,000 acres of good
cultivable land in this valley, and
there is room for scores of families
as It has been fully demonstrated
that a ton acre tract is amply sufficient area to fully occupy the attention of a practical hard-working farmer and to provide his family with a
generous living. We have mentioned
the river, crooks, nnd springs; there
is also sufficient sub-irrigation to
most of the land. In general fruitgrowing purposes, recent advances in
tho scientific application of dry farm
ing principles have demonstrated
that, surface irrigation la not essential to success in the growing of
fruit and vegetables in these mountain districts whore the snowfall in
winter and the rainfall In spring and
autumn  are generally  ample for  the
The  soil,   as   in   similar   valleys    in
British  Columbia  varies from alight
loam on tho bench    lands and black
heavy    loam   along tbe river.     The
timber in general Is young and easily
slashed,    although  there is   evidence
that some twenty years ago the valley was heavily  timbered  with large
cedar,  pine,  fir and  tamarac,    which
has been completely destroyed by forest tires,    leaving over     large areas
scarcely a trace of their ever having
existed.   This Incidentally makes land
clearing much easier and cheaper than
in any other timber district of B. C.
The climate does not touch extremes
either in summer or winter,  and    If
for a     few days or nights in winter
the thermometer seldom reaching ten
degrees below zero, which Is the coldest  recorded.        The  absence  of  high
winds and  the purity and dryness of
the atmosphere render the cold spells
really  enjoyable,   while  they  are   not
severe enough to Injure any but   the
nost delicate varieties of fruit trees.
Generally when the snow  goes of! in
April the land is ready for the plow.
Regar ling  the    fruit-growing    and
agricultural  possibilities of  Glenlily,
strawberries fetched  last  season   the
top market price and it was stated by
merchants  who     handled   them  that
they   were    more satisfactory  in  size
nnd flavor than any received  from  the
well known districts farther west, inasmuch as they remained longer fresh
and saleable than  the others.     This
was due not only     to tho quality of
the fruit,   but to the fact that tbey
were a much .shorter time in transit
than     the western  fruit.    Vegetables
• if al) kinds were a good crop in 1911
and   potatoes  in     particular did  remarkably well.     One point quality in
'avor of  potatoes  grown  in Glenlily
is their fine flavor, due probably   to
superabundance of potash in the soil.
Apple orchards     have  been  planted,
hut are     not    in  hearing.      Apples,
plums,    pears nnl  other    fruit trees
are  proving  thrifty  and  are making
good   growth   without   irrigation.
There are great opportunities in
practical poultry raising, bee-keeping

THERE  are  some calls that are
obligatory and that must be mado
If you would observe strictly the
rules that custom has   handed
down to us.
It Is necessary for one who has been
a bridesmaid, a maid of honor or a matron of honor to call upon the mother of
the bride shortly after the wedding. The
mother is the hostesa, you will remember, and you should acknowledge her
entertainment by calling.
If you have declined an Invitation to a
dinner or a dance, you should make a
vail afterward. It Is a slight, nnd has
only one Interpretation, If you neglect to
do eo. A hostess has a right to feel
offended and to understand that you
wish to discontinue her friendship.
A hosltws should always call on a new
acquaintance before offering to entertain her.
if, through tbe Influence of a friend
or relative, a person has received an
Invitation, ho should pay a call upon his
hostess whether the extended entertainment was accepted or not.
When a member of a family Is HI for
a season, the calls made on her may
be returned by a daughter or sister
choecn for this duty. A call should bo
made and explained If the daughter bo
unknown to her mother's friends, She
should Introduce herself and explain
her purpose In a courteous, gracious
way. "s^,
When going on a journey, a card on
which P. P. C. is written can be left or
posted. It Is a French phrase and means
"To take leave."
■If calling on a friend who Is visiting
one whom you do not know, a card
should be left for the mistress of the
house, and It Is for tills person that you
should nek. It Is not permissible to call
upon a friend who Is visiting a family
with whom you are at enmity.
It is your duty to call" upon a visitor
of friends If the guest's presence In
the town has boon announced, This
should he done before Including the
stranger in any entertainment of the
Calls of condolence or congratulation
arc made with no reference to the regular visits paid or received. They are
formal little ways of being thoughtful
In lime of trouble, Cards are left both
before and after ihe funeral.
And now wo have cleared up some
difficulties for the coming season. After
al), it Is practice that makes the formal
details as dear an you can wish.

There Is no hard-and-fast rule about

Lastly,   place   the   elbows   oil   a   labia

the state of th'1 scalp. The care of tbe
hair involves the cars of the scalp, or
rather Is tho care of the S'-atp: the
care of the hair matters but little;
fur from a healthy scalp cm only
healthy  and  beautiful  hnir grow.
The luster of the hair depends on the
amount of light that Is reflected from
each particular flberj this, in turn, depends on whether it is covered with an
excessively thin coating of oil or not.
Unless this oil, or Home artificial sub-
flltutfl for It, is spread over tiie whole
length of the hair, we see that dull look
which li so unsightly and which takes
nwoy nil tbe beauty nnd brightness of
an otherwise healthy head.
The hair should be brushed thoroughly
every day so that the oil Is distributed
evenly   ami   uniformly  throughout   Its
whole length; a second reason why It
».hould be brushed is thai in this way

Thoughts from the Editorial Pen
Liberals Object to Strict
Ottawa, Jan. 23.--There was another midnight division In the commons
tonight, the government helug sustained by a majority of 4fi on a vote
on a motion by J. G. Turrifl condemning the administration for having brought Into effect some time
ago a stricter Interpretation of the
customs regulations governing the
admission of Hunber.
Mr. Turriff and several other weat-
ern members contended that the
change made was unjustifiable nnd
constituted nn injustice to the prairie settlers who are being made to
pay pay more for their lumber for
the benefit of the lumbermen of Hrlt-
Ish Columbia.
Sir Wilfrid [.aimer supported the
motion. He said he was convince!
that the customs hoard had erred
and that an extreme interpretation
had heen made of the letter of the
law with the result tbat a hardship
bad heen imposed upon the farmers
who above all men should be protected.
Premier Borden on the other hand
contended that the regulations as recently promulgated were absolutely
within the terms of the Customs Act.
He said  that the    motion of censure
was really directed at the commissioner of customs and for that reason he asked the house to reject it.
Several British Columbia members
spoke in favor of the retention of tbi
new regulation. The division figure*-
were 107 to 62.
A. S. Qoodeve of Kootenay follow
ed in a spirited addrtBS. He Was
very much amazed that any member
of the house should dare to stand
and advocate that the laws of this
country should be broken, He said
that the member for Assloibota had
admitted that certain lumber which
wns dutiable by Inw was being smuggled into the country by subterfuge
and fraud and yet that member openly advocated fl continuance of that

New Canadian Timber Program
Victoria, Jnn. 23.—In the provln
clal legislature this afternoon, Hon
W. It. Ross, Minister of Lands, et
plained the changes proposed In tbe
timber policy of the government, as
a result of the recommendation of
tho Forestry Commission. He sum
niarlted the pulley followed since 1905
and argued that the present prosper
Ity of the province is due to that,
nnd the greatly increased revenue
trom timber. Hereafter licenses to
cut timber will I» issued by public
competition to tho person who offers
the largest bonus, In addition to the
usual rental and royalties.
These Inter are not to ho raised,
but the royalty will be charged on BU
timber cut, whether removed or left
In the woods. Htrlngent provisions
to prevent (Ires nre to he made.
The protection ol tho lorests Is to

petitie in to be nut hy a tai of one
rent nn aero nn nil timber Innds under license, the government contributing a similar mtinunt fnr the acre
age of all ungrnntad crown timber
Innds. The cutting ot nlftuhlngu and
their destruction will be done by
men employed hy this board. The
rnllwnys are to he compelled to nn
tnlillnh a patrol for putting out fires
after tho piumngn    of trains   during
veniences and the desire for close as
sociatlon must not, however, be misunderstood. Where the common root
or   the common    food supply     are
sought   as   a means    ol making the ; ot her home.
education of hor child must herself
have a broader knowledge ol society,
ot Its needs and opportunities, thnn
she can obtain within tho tour walls
close association possible, there
have a home. Where the close asso
elation is accidental nnd the result
of convenience in getting the physical comforts of life, there we have
a hotel or boarding house or an orphanage or some other place that
never was and never will he a homo.
In order, then, to destroy In the human race the desire Inr that rest and
quiet and retirement nnd close comradeship which alone Is at home, we
must take from It not the private
kitchen, but the capacity lor attention and the ideal of what the expression ol affection should Involve.
To he sure, In the past private
housekeeping was n necessary means
for securing Intimate companionship,
nnd so It Is often In the present,. In
the past, however, there were mechanical difficulties in tho way ol
nubile housekeeping for the benefit ol
iirlvnle home-making, which do not
exist today. Nnw fnnd can he prepared In large quantities as well as In
small, and schemes have been devised

Just as long as public opinion Insists upon seeing in the varied activities nf housekeeping, ends In themselves, Just an long will It run the

have become not only unnecessary to
good home-making, but even impediments to it. Only when it sees in

the best interests of home itself.

who meet alter anxloua separation.
"Laddie," a collie dog, lamous tor his beauty and gentle-
nets, winner of many prises at dog shows, the pride of the
family and neighborhood, has been stolen, and after many
days absence he escapes one night (rom his captor and returns
home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope which he
broke In bis struggles lor freedom dangling from hla collar.
Hit familiar hark brings bis little mistress, Majorie, to
tbe door and she throws hsr arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of Joy which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" la equally delighted to be "Home
Again" and answers her welcome by putting his paws on her
shoulder and resting hla bead against her breast with a little
whine, which, in his dog language meant—"Where I love le

"A little learning is a dangerous
"Drink deep, or taste not the
Pierian Spring."
I am Inclined to believe that the
foregoing well-known lines are somewhat misleading and fallacious. When
Alexander Pope remarked that a little learning Is dangerous; I take it
be meant that It has a tendency to
inculcate false notions into the minds
of beginners. Unquestionably the
egotistical possessor ot a little learning, who niakns It a practice to ostentatiously parade the same lor the
edification (?) of those persons with
whom he comes In contact, is both
foolish and obnoxious. Persons who
content themselves with just a little
learning are very liable to entertain
erroneous ideas. Had they drunk
deep, these would probably .have been
rectified. We are variously formed,
consequently the query arises—is It
possible for everyone to take a deep
draught, even if they essayed to do
so? Certainly they should not be
deprived of a little knowledge it
their mental capacity would not allow of them obtaining an illustrious
position. In the majority ol cases
the acquisition of a little learning
operates as a stimulus to a laudable
desire to achieve greater things.
A little learning 1b an instrument
with which the aspirant in search of
the gema of knowledge opens the portals of tho glorious temple of philosophy, and when inside eagerly satisfies his inherent cravings for mental
culture. The happy possessor of a
little knowledge yearns to acquire
more. The fact tbat he has already
succeeded In gaining a littie is constantly urging him to redouble his
efforts, ia order to increase his store
ol Information. Instead of retarding
the progresa of those uninstructed individuals who treasure up a little
learning, every encouragement should

assistance in their praiseworthy en-

Whilst the agitation against the
licenced and regulated saloon ts at
its zenith, we think the moment is
also opportune lor directing the attention of the public to the desirability ol some drastic policy of systematic police surveillance over the
infernal immoral "joints" aod"divos'
which flourish like the proverbial bay
tree In our cities (especially, at night
and on the Sabbath)—the rendezvous
of dissolute young girls and degenerate callow youths. Under the name
of Oriental Restaurants, these fake
chop suey "holes In the wall"—veritable cesB-pools of vice and iniquity
—are exerting a terribly demoralising effect on the rising generation
and slowly but surely sapping the
physical vitality and blighting the
basic principles of right action and
human duty in the minds of our
young people ot both sexes.

To become nr autnor one must be
the possessor of unlimited originality
snd graphic descriptive powers. These
are essential features. Characters
should be natural, not wooden as It
were, but truthful accounts ot men
and women whom we meet in our
humdrum every day lite. Some novelist's "brain children" are the products of a distorted imagination.
Charles Dickens, one of the most famous writers ol fiction, roamed the
streets of London, early and late, observing life of every class, under every trial, wltb keen alert eyes. He
has depicted many Interesting phases
ol life, and recounted in hia own Inimitable style, the peculiarities,
whims and vagaries ol those he became acquainted with In his rambles.
Expression, too, is often a great
stumbling block. An author may be
fortunate enough to think out original plots and ideas but his stories
are marketless until he acquires
style and fluency. It is best to cultivate your own style, and to say
pithily and brightly what you have
to relate. Repression gives llle and
reality to your words. It is an art
in Itself to put utterances Into character's mouth, suitable to the subject
and sentiment.
"It's a real pleasure lor me to give

I cannot consent to encourage such
wretched selfishness."
Some Taxes Should Go
Victoria. Jan. 82.—Recommending
sweeping cbsnges in the system ol
provincial taxation the report ..f tbe
royal commission on taxation i.hlcb
sat last autumn was brought down
in the legislature today. It proposes
to abolish the poll tax; to abolish
the personal property tax; to abol-
iBh the lax on Improvements; to increase the exemption on incomes to
11,6011 with $200 additional for each
child under IH years, and an additional $l.5(ii) where the Income is derived wholly Irom agriculture; it proposes the readjustment of income taz
with a supertax on incomea above
$110,001); the readjustment of succession duties with an increase in the
case of large estates; a reduction In
the coke tax from IS to 10 cents per
ton; a thorough reassessment ol the
province with a periodical reassessments and an increase in the staff ol
assessors. It recommends the assessment of wild lands at Ita actual
value and anticipates a possible reduction In the rate ol taxation all
round after new and complete assessment rolls have heen prepared.
In its preamble the report says
that the cnndltinn nl the provlnoe is
prosperous nnd the people generally
contented under the taxation at present Imposed with some exceptions
which are the subjects nt the recommendations. There seemed practical
unanimity In tnvor ol maintaining
the oxIttlrtK rate ol taxation coupled
j with a rapid rate nt development.
The stafl of assessors was considerably under manned brnco some ine
I quality In assessments In the different districts while Inn I nt varying
values In the tame districts were not
always bearing their proportionate
Increase nl taxation.
The report tottrboa on land taxes
viewed in their historic and economic
aspects and sets torth general considerations why Improvements on
lands should not be taxed, defining
at tbe same time what is actually
meant by Improvements.
The wild land tax remains at 4 per
cent on the assessed value, the timber, tax at * per cent on tbe assessed value, the mineral tax at 2 per
cent on the assessed value of the ore,
and the tai on crown granted un-
worked mineral claims at 25 conts
an acre.
Legislation is recommended to enforce the registration ol real extate
on affidavits setting torth the true
consideration lor purchase and it Is
proposed that the registration lee ot
one-fifth of one per cent Dn the value
ol real estate up to 15,000 should extend to all real estate irrespective ol
The commissioners dealing with
the wild land tax, recommend that
the regulation whlcb at present pro
video that wild land located west ot
the Cascade mountains shall be classed an Improved lands when i Improvements have been effected thereon to
; the assessed value of 12.(0 per acre
should extend to lands situated east
' ol tbe Cascade range wben It ia also
, altuated to the north of the 63rd parallel of latitude.

1 A, HcPhllllps and G, H. Lugrln ol

1 rouver. It sat Inr four days In Vancouver and for one day each In 1'
other places.
Evidence was given hy 161 witnes

officials and other Individuals during
their travels.
There will be nn legislation based
on the report during the present set

You remember ihe story of the old
uitni who when he wns on his death*
bed. called his sons to him und told
them that a great treasure was huiieil
\mi the farm.
1 After he dlqd the sons dug that
farm deep, from one end to the other,
finding u- gold or silver, they planted
■it ami in the Autumn they discovered
whal ihe old mun mount. The treasure was there, but lis name wus Digging and  planting.
j Then you, no doubt, remember another story of an old man who, ou his
deathbed, called his sons to him nnd
told litem to try to break a number
:of sticks that  iin the story) lay near
jthe hod. They could not do It, hut
when tbe old man told them to untie
the bundle and try each stick sep'erate
ly, tbey broke them without trouble.
And the story goes un, making the
1)1 d  mun  say:
"Now boyi. If you work together,
no ono can overcome you; but if you
quarrel with one another anil sepciute
it will he as easy lo break you as it
Ijg to break one stick from the bund e."
1    Which,  in its  way, wus a fortune
1 for Ihe boys.
Now, there is another story which
[you have nut heard, it Is also about
an old man und his three sous.   Only
;this man wns not on his denth bed.
j He was a lively old man attending to
1 business every day.
j    From the time his boys were old
j enough to understand, he talked to
them about the Great Gold Mine. At
;first tho boys did not know Just what
lie meant. But he told them wonderful stories about the Great Gold Mine
and made them curious about It.
j    When the oldest  boy was twenty-
lone he took him to one side and told
him where the Great Gold Mine wus
to be found.   Then he ga\<0 him sonic
1 money, and a blessing and told him
to go away and dig in it.
! When the second hoy was twenty-
nne he took him aside and told blm
the same  thing
'    And   when   the   youngest   hoy   was
1 twenty-one he told him the secret,
and hn left home ns his two brothers

When ihe birthday of the third boy
came around he fulled to turn up.
The old man looked up and down the
Btrect icvry day expecting him to return, A week went by and sti 1 he
did not eomc.
Then n letter came, and in this letter the youngest boy sa.id:
"1 came out here five yea's ego and
put tjje money you gave me Into a
gold mine; fifty per cent, profits gurn*
atiteed annually, I have hern working
for two dollars a day, wailing for the
mine to pay. hut It has failed, whnt
shall 1 do.?"
The old man telegraphed tbe boy.
"Remember what I said five years
tgo.   Begin    again.    Father."
Jusl tin wotds in all, you see, nnd
no extra charge.
Now. what wus l! Iho ojd man told
the boys about the Great Gold Mine?
It  was  this:

Census Statistics
Ottawa, Jan. 24.—The Census and
Statistics Office ol the Department ot
Agriculture has issued today the following bulletin giving the tinal estimates ot the area, yield and value
of the principal Held crops of the
Dominion lor 1911. The field crops
of Canada are shown to have occupied last year a total area of 32,853,-
000, and their value, calculated at
the average local market prices,
amounts to (565,712,000, The area
ol wheat last year was 10,374, 000
acrea, ol which' 1,172.000 acres were
tall wheat in Ontario and Alberta,
and the production was 215,851,000
bushels of the value of '138,566, 700.
For the year 1911 the area from
which the yields are calculated were
those of the recent Census and the resulting data are not therefore strictly comparable with the estimates of
the three previous years which were
based upon the reports ol selected
correspondents. It may he mentioned .however, that the area and production of wheat in 1011 exceed by
over 1,000,0000 acres and 65,862,
bushels the estimates ol 1910. A
more satisfactory criterion of the
difference between the two seasons ot
1911 and 1910 is afforded by the average rates of yield per acre which for
fall wheat was 22.19 bushels In 1911
against 23.49 in    1910, spring wheat
