CitizonB of tht* district should
appreciate tho fact that they will
not again have Uie opportunity for
soinu time to listtm to as distinguished speakers an may bo heard
ut the Auditorium next Monday
evening, Political sentiment at
the const is changing and Van
couver especially is preparing to
wage a hearty conflict iu the next
election. .Some predict that a few
seats will he Liberal, aud some
enthusiasts even predict the complete overthrow of tho McBride
government at the next election.
The speakers who will be heard
here next Monday are in touch
with tin! coast aud know the situation nnd are prepared to present
the facts so that thinking men and
women may judge for themselves.
In the history of tlie world,
whenever a crisis has arisen in
national affairs, there 1ms always
arisen a man strong and powerful
enough to cope with the situation.
Such men only appear once, perhaps, in a century iu the history of
any country, Canada's loss in the
death of Lord Strathcona marks
the passing of such a man—an em
pire builder—who, with keen aud
intelligent foresight, saw the possibilities of the future for Canada at
a time when in sn of influence generally looked upon the Dominion
as a barren waste, and with vigor-
otis hand aud undaunted courage.
Bet about tlie transforming of this
land into one of prosperity aud
bright promise. Other men have
made their mark us conquerors,
soldiers, or men uf conquest. Lord
Strathcona Iihb won his linrels iu
time of peace by his devotion to
the practical upbuilding of a nation.
'Ihis unassuming Scotchman has
won the eternal gratitude of all
Canadians by his commercial success. Who can predict where
Canada would be to-day but for his
success in the building of theC. P.
K. ? It would surely be less prosperous, Icbs known) and less
honored. The secret of his great
success was tluit he did his work
faithfully and well, and the results
will live long past the erection of
thi! monument upon his grave* and
even after the monument itself has
crumbled into dust,
In this issue Is given the outline of
tho plan for instituting a new Postal
Library for Canada which is well
worth reading. The scheme has been
worked out in detail and is presented
by Mr. Joseph T. Tracy ol Lethbridge. Tho system is entirely a new
Idea and if adopted in Canada would
placo this country in the Iront rank
in the library movement, thc establishing ui which has lieen occupy ini
the attention of the world (or decades,
past. With this proposed new system there would he placed at the
disposal of readers throughout Canada a .system so complete that it
would glvo better service than could
the greatest libraries in the world
Honks would not be disseminated
through one central branch but any
special volume in the archives of the
Dominion would bo at the disposal of
tin- reader. Specialists would be employed, which would greatly assist
in research or the study ol particular
subjects. Thc scheme appears to he
well worthy of adoption.

of men are busy this week on the
interior of the uew location. Tlie
large warehouse at the rear litis
been ceiled, all the wall lights removed and sky lights installed, and
painters nre rapidly transforming
the entire interior. The carpenters have also erected a balcony
whioh will provide additional floor
space in the already large building.
The partitions between the front
store building and the rear have
been reuioveil and the entire floor
put into one large show room. At
the rear a room lias been provided
which will be utilized as a workshop and another room will be
devoted especially to the showing
of house furnishing goods,
The upstairs will be turned over
to the linoleum and carpet departments and special equipment is
being installed for showing these
goods to advantage. Built in show
windows have been erected and a
plute glass front will be placed in
the near future. An equipment
for taking goods over the top of the
building into the second floor is
another improvement to be inaugurated. Work on the removal of
tho furniture will start the 6rst of

their labors hy that time. Mr.

Edison Phonograph
Throughout the history of sound reproduction Mr. Edison
has blazed the trail. Every important step has been conceived first in his mind. He is the acknowledged master
of acoustics throughout the world. His recent triumph is
the Blue Amberol Record.
It came, after countless experiments, with all its strength of volume, sweetness of quality and lasting endurance. To bring out the
remarkable tone of this new
reo rd demanded a new reproducer. He invented it —the
Diamond - Point Reproducer.
Wilh it there is none of the annoyance of changing the needle
after each launl. The diamond
is as much a part of the phonograph as its beautiful cabinet.

"IvanlnV, a gorgeous reproduction
in four parts ot Sir Walter Scott's
most wonderful story, will he shown
at the Kdison theatre next Wednesday, .lanuary 28th.
Following is au excerpt from thc
Calgary Herald:
"It looks as if everybody who is
able to rido or walk is goinri to see
Ivanhoe during the engagement of
that picture at the Itcx. Thc picture
in all its splendor opened at the Hex
yesterday and crowds flocked to the
popular photoplay theatre to see thi«
wonderful 111 in dramatization of Sir
Walter Scott's noted novel.
"The attendance at night was so
away but they still had the opportU-
iiway hut they still had thn opportunity of seeing the ploU.ro by going
across tho street and to tbo next
hlock, where the Monarch, by arrangement with the Hex exhibited lho
picture at night. Hy this means
hardly n soul was disappointed. This
was thc first time in the history of
motion pictures in Calgary that the
same (Um wns utilized at two
theatres at tlio same time. The
identical pictures as exhibited at thc
Hex were at the Monarch and the orchestra of both, theatres played the
same incidental music.
"On all sides could be heard words
of praise foe the.marvelous presentation of 'Ivanhoe' and thc filming of
this beautiful thrilling nnd romantic
story was not -in vain. Calgarians
were eager to give Uie picture »
hearty welcome and all,that had been
said of the filmw in advance was proved when the crowds applauded thc
many stirring scenes and situations.
Time and again 'Ivanhoe' was cheered
when he ii|i|nxu-|«1 on tlie screen and
tin; pathetic figvrc ol Isaac o! York,
created a heart interest that could
never have been equalled had the
play been presented by a dramatic
company instead of a photoplay cast.
"Scenlcally, the picture is a work
,t art. The light and shade effect
throughout is exquisite and the camera men came in for words ui praise
Irom the spectators. Truly, 'Ivanooa'
is a masterpiece and it is to he :e-
gretted that tlie engagement,is only
these days."

y. Why should (ho Post Office

A. The Post Office operates everywhere and all lhe lime. It is already
established. II now has housing faci
lilies in every community. II has tho
heat and most inexpensive facilities
for distribution and collect inn of
books. The addition of lhe Library
service, to the Post Office is certainly

TIIK POSTAL LIBRARY lie prohibitive?

This is a lur^r supply and -v higher

A. With the Public Reading Room

percentage nf the present Post OlllCCB
could house THK POSTAL LIBRARY without requiring additional
room. Some additions would 110
doubt he required. There will also be
an expense for staeVs ol printed forms
records etc. Let us assume 60e pet
volume as a suhVietit amount to cover nil tbis expense. Probably less
than $5,000,000.00 would he required
for these purposes.
Q. is tbere not danger of great
loss by non-return of hooks and by
damage while in lhe hnnds of the
A.   There would he the. usual wenr
and tear which must be provided for.
Ordinary   libraries   require security
More lending books.  TIIE POSTAL
LIBRARY would do the, snme.   Each
j hook would have a certain list value.
Those desiring to borrow hooks from
THE    POSTAL    LIBRARY    would
first secure and file a guarantee up to
n certain amount by somo rate-pnyer
securing safe return of books and pay-
■ ment   of   fees.   This   guarantee will
♦protect   tbe   Library against losses,
Again since the people own the Post
Office tbey have pride iu its success
and are interested in its securilv
i). In what manner will books in-
secured from THK POSTAL LIBRARY!
A. Thi- method would be very simple. When a book is desired a postal
card form prepared for tbat purpose
would be filled up, stamped to the
amount of tlie required fee and dropped in the mail list tbe same as nnj
other mail matter. In due time the
book would be delivered in the same
manner as other mail. The return oi
a book would be as simplj done. A
person might draw any number of
books desired provided of Course his
guarantee was sufficient.
I). Would nut tie- expense ol such
service be excessive'.'
A. The Postal Service is the best
example of efflciencj and ccono.uj
found in civilized countries. Tbe low
tost of the clerical work and of lhe
t ransportal Ion collection and dis-
trihution by ibe Post ollice bas been
a continuing astonishment. TIIK
POSTAL LIBRAIH will operate, by

The liquidation in thc stock market
in lf)13 was apparently thorough
without being paniky. Trade an 1
industry in turn showed symptoms ol
an orderly retreat rather than of a
precipitate (light, and since the improved feeling noted in the latter
weeks of 1913 set in, less is heard of
rumors of business troubles in this
and other cities. The complete history 01 the 1902-03 collapse and
quick revival, some of whose earlier
happenings were closely paralellcd in
1913, will repay perusal because iiohl-
iiui some lessons and indeed some encouragements. It is generally conceded that while thc entry of industry into the stock market in a tilP"
pit alt zed form has made it more sensitive to unfavorable happenings, it
bas also made it quicker to respond
later   tu   improving influences.   The
best judgement seems to support tbe
view that money, the great desiratum
in finance and trade, will be both
cheaper and easier to obtain in 191t
than last year. The passage ol it.:

measure which bus supplemented a Ber

possibilities of Kurope endeavoring tu
further liquidate its burdens in Am*':

this connection, although oui tinmen
se credit balance may help us in Hns
respect. Money, however, should lie
plenty fur legitimate trade and in
d US try in mil. and the absence of
burdensome stocks, owing to lota*;
continued hand-to-mouth buy inn,
should he helpful. It will not be forgotten that many crops were short
in 1913, and prices, particularly of
food, "ere high whicb may help agriculture as a whole, though no country ever made much money out of its
crop shorlagas. As to 1014 crop
conditions, it may be said tbat conditions arc favorable and winter
wheat is in excellent shape. Thc
matter nf possible railway rate advances presses for early solution. All
of the advances asked for in Ibe past
years would have been insufficient to
save some badly mnnnires enterprises
from tbe efleets of llieir own sins,
bul the justice, indeed ibe absolute
necessity, of allowing the railways to
recoup themselves for high cost of
Operation  can hardly   he  denied.   In
this matter the aueuries at the onset ut' tbe vear are thought favorable
and if tbey prove so should have an

After Pro!. Snbouraud confirmed
tbo germ origlne of dandruff, science
was confronted by a new problem
which was not solved until the discovery of Newbro's Herpicide. Herpicide beintf the lirst successful preparation compounded In harmony with
this new theory, "Ihe original remedy to kill the dandruff germ."
Since then, numerous preparations,
said to be "just as good" as Herpicide liave been thrown upon the market; others have adopted Herpicide
claims, and without making any change in tbeir remedies, but none have
ever reached the same degree ot popularity. Kverywbeic tbis remedy is
recognized as the one genuine dandruff cradlcator, As a result, Herpicide bas more satisfied users than
all other preparations combined.
Being the original remedy, users ex
pect more astonishing results from
Herpicide than they would look for
from any other preparation and they
usually get tliein. So wonderful has
heen the success of this germicide
that it is now recognized as the
standard bair remedy of the world.
Herpicide destroys the dandruff,
checks falling hair. It stops itching
of the scalp almost instantly.

u Wasa, on Dccenber 31st, 1018, n
meeting of the property holders and
others was held to discuss ways and .
means by which we might combat
tlie mosquito pest, which renders this
valley at limes unfit for habitation
by either man or beast during the
summer months of such years that
the kootenay river overilows its
banks and leaves the sloughs and low
places lull of stagnant water.
A Anti-mitsiMiito League was formed, ollicers and executive elected, ami
a movement laimched thut will if tak
en up energetically by the various Interests and communities affected
throughout the Mast Kootenay, undoubtedly accomplish ils object and
make this district al all times a
paradise lor tuuiists and hunters, a
profitable agricultural and stock-raising dislrict and a most desirable
place in which to live.
At the meeting it was suggested
and agreed that:
First—Drainage measures on a
large scale are not feasible at tbe
Second — The treatment ol stagnant water surfaces with a. low (trade
kerosene seems to he the most promising solution reasonably within cur
Third—Comparatively small uiianti-
tles of oil thoroughly distributed
and applied at intervals of two or
three weeks are efficient.
Fourth—The task of distributing
the oil over large areas of sparsely
settled districts is an undertaking of
considerable magnitude and that the
settlers or members of the League
undertake the distribution of the oil.
Fifth—We ask the H.C. CJovern-
meul to co-operate with us to the extent ot supplying the oil f.o.b. cars
in barrels or containers, a some
point on the C.P.It. aud that we ask
the C.P.it. Colonization department
to co-operate with us, hy transporting the oil free ol charge to its destination here iu the Kootenay.

Ai a recent meeting,of the Farmers
Institute, of Grand Forks, an interesting lecture was delivered hy Ma*
Uul.maun, horticulturist lu the
course or his lecture he said:—
The Farmers' Institute is a very
Important factor iu the development
of the district, perhaps more so than
some of you realize. 1 have now
been in Ihis district for a matter of
about nine montlis and am very glad
In be able to say that you have a
large percentage of what I might
term clean farmers, undoubtedly a lnr
gor percentage Ihan iu any other district in Hritish Columbia which I
have visited. This is one of the
greatest assets to a farming community, but it is not enough to have a
number of clean farmers in a district,
yotl must endeavor fo make clean farmers of .your neighbors. Tl.e lirst
sfep towards this end is a farmers'
institute, of which every producer in
the district should he u member.
The first duty of a farmers inatitute
is to prsach the .gospel ol clean farming, and let every man practice whal
he preaches aud prove his teachings
in a practical manner.
The principle subject, for a farmers' institute lo discuss, and also for
the members to practice are diversive
farming, improvement of stock, and
methods of product ion, science vs.
practice, markets and marketing,
Itcautifying the home and farm, and
above all, co-operation. Co-opcrait
in   everything, cutout the middle non;
talk Co-opeiative canneries, dryers,
creameries, packing, marketing; get
your [arm supplies, seed, stock and
machinery co-operatively; but don't
only preach bul practice; also Help
your neighbor ami thereby help yourself, in fact love your neighbor if
you can.
cultural districts is that the individ-
cultural district is that the individual producers often think of self
alone; too often jealousies exist to
the great detriment of the community. This is absurd on the face of it;
there may lu* some m'ouinl for not
exactly loving your neighbor but
don't let it interfere with your own
business or tbat uf the community;
be broad minded, don't think your
neighbor is wrong because lie does not
always agree wilh you; there is such
a thing as being in the wrong yourself; no one is perfect, no one. is infallible, discuss met bods with your
neighbor, discuss methods at jour
meetings, nnd don't gel hot because
everyone does not agree witb ynu,
there may he some ground tor it;
broad-minded discussion is the best
solver of problems.
You have In this valley one ol the
finest propositions in the interior of
Hritish Columbia if yon -jo in fur
diversified farming1; you have the soil
climate, water, and you have for a
good foundation a large .lumber of
practical and experienced men This
valley has made slow but good »iro
gress; slow but, sure, with capable

is good in a way, it brings capita

tends to put false values on land
which is perhaps the greatest, fault of
a boom.

Amongst tho resolutions considered
by the Grain Growers' convention al
Brandon, Man., was this:*
"That this convention views with
alarm the increasing corruption in
elections, bulb Federal aud Provincial, anil hereby express their indignation and condemnation of such
practices, and demand that: the law
bearing upon elections be so changed
thai the parlies proved guilty can be
adequately punished."
It is evident tbat these]Manitoba
farmers had iu mind the Macdonald
infamies and lhe Glmll corruption.
More than two years after Premier
Borden came t-n office these grain
growersihave found such a resolution
necessary. Mr. Borden made it n
main blank of his Halifax .platform,
lo put u£i immediate'end to wlwctor-
al corruption, and a'ppolnl a public
prosecutor io punish election wrongdoing. Premier'Borden has been perfectly content to profil by anv electoral corruption lhal will win ridings

In these days of the high cost of
food and especially of meat, whin tin
packers aro despairing of the mca
supply and the price of flesh food [;
pro.eediug steadily upward, farmers
would do well to pay heed ito a section of Samuel W. Atherlon's book
on "Practical Farming,'' entitled,
"The Hog"—Tho Mortgage Payer.
Mr. Alherton says that this is
what the hog is known as on Illinois
farms and he believes that it is an
eminently correct designation, lie
gives much practical advice regarding the successful raising of hogs and
points out that tbe only serious obstacle to success is hog cholera.
Hut this may ho avoided by proper
(ceding ol the animal, his idea beitw
that cholera is produced by overfeeding ot corn, lie therefore advises
ground barley as a change of feed,
and also suggests, in order to prevent the spread of the disease in case
any animal upon a farm should become afflicted with it, thnt hog coops
.'oiistruetcd and scattered over the
farm so that infection may be < on-
il lo as low animals as possible
and the loss minimized.
Mr. Atherlon shows that by prop*
' care hog raising is not expensive,
ami it is unnecessary to point out
that in these limes of high prices it
brings large returns. He shows, In
addition, that besides the direct val-
of hog breeding in tl.e profil ol
the animals themselves, bogs greatly
enrich the soil upon which they run,
and thus their presence on the farm
makes for lho betterment of all crops
by supplying natural fertilizer.
Farmers should knOw all these
things not only fot their own benefit
but for the sake of the entire consuming public of the nation. If it
were realized how profitable hog eul j
tl vat ion really is, there would bo
many more hogs raised and the meat i
problem would he by no means so

link'bet ween the two ends ot steel on
ootciiiiy Central branch of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, which
branch will, when completed, conned
this part up with their main line
and their ('rows' (Nest Pass branch
is being pushed apace by the contractors. The end of steel on the
northern part is now within twenty)
miles of this townslte and supplies
for the contractors' work are being
brought over it. Some of the camps
from the southern advance have been
transferal to tbe Northern end and
shifts are now working overtime.
Thc approaches for the bridge on the
Columbia River in this vicinity are
receiving special attention. Taking
it, all in all, it is reasonably safe to
predict that within another month
the ,railway will be in a position to
deliver general freight and merchandise to a point within twenty miles
of us and that,by early spring they
will be carrying passengers to the
same place.

It is reported that should the Canadian Pacific Railway go on this

Now comes the most interesting
chapter in his life, the Red River rebellion. For long the hold of the

was denounced as arbitrary. Tbe
Red river settlement had then a mixed population ot some 12,011(1 people.
There were Europeans, Canadians, A-
inerlcans ami French half-breeds,
Mosl ot tho priests were natives ot
France, to whom Camilla was almost
a foreign country. With a mixed
population like this it was difficult
to deal and when, on November !),

whereby the committee surrendered
its interests in the northwest to the
crown with reservations for the company, rebellion broke out. The leader, Louis Roil, a half-breed, a man

Smith played the pail ol mediator
and until the arrival of Governor Archibald, he adniinistcstd the atlalrs of
the province.
For a long time the idea ot uniting the pastern provinces of Canada
with the west had filled Mr. Smith's
mind. To become a nation Canada
must have railways, and with this
end in view, after becoming member
for Winnipeg in the provincial assembly, he used all his ingenuity and
energy, in 1871 be was elected t0
the Dominion house as member for
Selkirk by the almost unanimous
vote of the community. As a result

rapidly [mined a name for sobriety
and order. One of his first steps was
to abolish the liquor traffic among
the Indians, For some time the Hudson's Bnj company had been accused
of being ;il the bottom of all the
trade in drink. To slop this, Mr.
Smith hail a law passed by the council forbidding any intoxicating drink
to pass the boundary. Kven officers
were not exempt from the lay, and a
small quantity of wine which was
brought out for a factor was actually sent back in Kngland. When Governor Archibald, in October, 1870, appointed Mr. Smith to tho No', th west
council, he had this prohibitory law
carried out in tbe name of Canada.

When the board met the next day
