Mr. F. V.. Simpson has just returned from an extended trip through
the prairie provinces and the middle
and western .States. Mr. Simpson
was Grand Representative oi the
flrand Lodge of Odd Fellows ol British Columbia to the meeting of tha
Sovereign Grand Lodge held this year
at Minneapolis. Mrs. Simpson accompanied him on the trip and slopped over at Port land lot a brief
visit, says the Victoria Colonist,
In speaking of his observations of
the country, both of tlte provinces
and in lhe States, Mr. Simpson said:
"Never since 1 have been in Canada, which is now sixtetn veins, havo
1 seen sueh magnificent crops as ihe
yield this year in the three prairie
provinces, anil in lalkinu with fanners and business men 1 found \fo\\ the
population of tlie three provinces
were jubilant over tin* lael Lhal Hns
year excelled all others in lhe yield
per aero, in the Increased acreage,
and in the grade ol wheal produced,
It was surely a great shown nf gold
(or the wheat farmers id tin* prairie
provinces this vein, mid will prove
one of thi* greatest ndvcit.scmt ■■.>•-
that Canada lias over had, 1 visited
points iu Minnesota, South Dakota,
Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado,
rtuh and Oregon, and nowh-rc did I
find anyone who was i„,i anxious to
learn about Western Camilla. The
news ol the groal crops seem to have
drifted into nil of the middle ami
western States, mil in consequence 1
look io see a heaviri Immigration
Ihan ever from those stat s lo Canada next year. It is true ib.it newspapers ami bankers .ne doing all in
tltelr power to discourage Hie immi-
gratiuu into Canada Ihis is quite
natural, of course, since the thousands who have left the middle and
western States during tli'' pusl few
years has reached a stage that it Is
now tt .serious problem with the business men nf that country, Banks do
not look with fapor nu money being
withdrawn to invest in Canadian
lands, anil business men deprecate tho
loss of so many solid men louring the
country. I road editorials from
news'aaers saving licit 'the Nst> lands
in Canada had been taken up, and
nothing was left hut the poorest
land or other Innds sn re-not:* Irani
civilization that it was nonsensical
for people to even think of purchasing
"However, notwithstanding this
campaign, llie farmers through the
States I visited are still anxious t0
receive direct information Irom
Western Canada, nml wherever I went)
I wan kepi busy answering questions
as to   conditions, btith in the prairie
provinces and in Hritish Columbia. I
found, however, that the greater number of inquiries were, for information
about Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, and comparatively few about
Hritish Calumbia. I attribute this
to lhe fact that those provinces have
been more thoroughly advertised
through the States, and have today
thousands ol people from tlie States
who are molting a success in Canada
and sending the glad tidings back to
tlieir home folks. A peculiar impression prevails among many whom
I met, as to the conditions in Hritish
Columbia. I found a
number who imagined that this province was nearer to the Nortb Pole
than it was to the United States,
and cnlertaine'd the idea 'hat this
province was a land of eternal snow.
When I told them that I planted my
lio«,er garden last December and in
March had a solid lawn and plants
beginning to bloom, tbey were amazed, and could not understand how-
such a tiling could be done in this
portion of the province. They also
seemed to lad*: accurate knowledge of
the diversified resources of Hritish
Columbia and tho wonderful opportunities open to capital, business
men and farmers. I carried maps
with mc and pamphlets containing
the dCSlred information ami found
them eager to learn nil they could.
''As a result of my observations
and interviews with many people, 1
am confident tbat Western Canada
will see a greater influx than ever
during the nexl two years. Everybody is saving money to go to San
Francisco in 1915, anh nine out ol
ten will either go or come by way of
I Canada. 1 consider tbat Hritish Co*
11Uinula will havo a great opportunity
fur securing settlers who have money
ami the practical experience in      the
■ various lines of Agriculture and fruit
I raising, as well as slock breeding,
j if Uie conditions   arc made known to
a greater ox tent than al present, to
the thousands whose eyes are jjOW
turning to the lasl great west. Land
through the states that i travelled
is increasing each yeai In value, ami
j it is Impossible to buy good farming
| land ainwhere for less than S1 f»<*    to
■ (880 an acre, and that is another
reason that men who have grown
rich in farming die anxious to come
to Canada and buy land equally as
good for less money."
The renewed rumor that the Duchess of Connatight will Ih1 unable to
accompany the Duke to Canada is authoritatively contradicted. Tlie Duke
and Duchess will proceed to Rideau
hall after Prince Arthur's marriage,
which loo'; place recently, and stay
for the winter. The Duke anticipates a brief visit of inspection to thc
middle west early next summer,
prior to the arrival of the Prince "ol
Wales. Princess Patricia will be
one of fhe party and will remain witfj
her mother throughout tin* whole
(teriod of Canadian residence. If thc
health of the Duchess had suffered no
set-back it had been hoped the Princess would he able to spare a month
or two out of her Canadian term io
order to visit her sister at Stockholm.    Tbis Is tbe project aow.

Because Tug Wilson, of Calgary, is
lhe possessor of a yellow streak several yards wide, the fans o( Cranbrook were disappointed last Monday
night when lie refused to enter the
ring for his scheduled bout with
Charlie Lucca, of Chicago, The arrangements for tbe fight were made
hy R. E. Nafe, through the sporting
editor of the Calgary llerald. Wilson accepted the bout and two round
trip tickets were wired him.
Monday he arrived in the city hut
refused to go into the ring for less
than U75, stating that he thought
tbat was the amount, in place of $75.
Local sports finally olered to make
up lhe necessary amount and even offered him $225 and he still refused
with the lame evcuse that lie was
not in condition. He is doubtless of
the meal ticket variety of pug ami fo
looking for easy money and thought
Lucca too hard a nut to crack.
Even one was offered their money
back and a collection was taken and
Lucca sparred a few exhibition
rounds wilh Dick Marshall.
A large holiday crowd bad arrived
in the city and the fiasco has given
the i-ame a blac'i eye in this city and
there will doubtless bo no moro
matches for some time to come. Bob
Nafe was in no way to blame and
slaiuls lo lose considerable money on
the venture.
Ottawa, Oct. 16.—An order-Jn-coun-
cil has been passed authorizing an
Important new* development reclamation scheme along the Columbia river in British Columbia. The scheme
provides for the reclamation of 26,-
000 acres south of Oolden in the railway belt.
All of the land involved is flooded
four months of every year'hy the Columbia river and is useless at the
present time. The plan is to deepen
the river and to dyke the banks.
The Kootenay Central railway runs
through the district and the reclamation of this land will mean a hig
hoiiu for thi! district.

Secretary Aspinall. of the West India committee cnumeratiag the advantaged to the West Indies, accruing from tbe coming opening of the
Panama Canal, declares that in all
probability several steamship lines
will be established, ottering services
through the canal to the Far East,
enabling Jamaica, for a moderate
subsidy to en.ioy a position on a direct Un* ol transport between the
East and the United Kingdom, provided tbe tolls arc moderate. The
British West Indies and British
Guiana will enjoy additional facilities for marketing their produce at
Vancouver and the western seaboard
of Canada under trade arrangements
with the Dominion.
Tho new tariff law of tbe United
States is considered to be most favorable to British Columbia, and in
fact to all Canada as well. Lumber, coal, bsh and wood pulp are tbe
exports of this province chiefly affected and all these will have a bet>
ter chance in the American market.
The tariff, it is thought, will stimu-
ate trade and be of mutual benefit
to both countries.

Newspapers are often criticised for
publishing matters in connection with
the courts. The policy of this paper
is to give the court news strictly as
a matter of news without regard as
to who arc concerned, Matters of
court are matters of public news in
Which the people are. generally Interested and whieh they have a right to
know. When people get into police

law it is not thc duty of a paper to
Shield them without just reason.
Lawsuits and criminal eases in the
higher courts are of equal value
news and the news is the property of
the peoph*. The gross details of sensational eases are often better unpublished as they only appeal to the
morbid, and good newspapers eliminate this class of news, giving only
the results of Ihe action,

Will the Borden government do
anything? The indications are that
it will not—it is too firmly under the
control of the protected interests.
The Canadian duty can only tie [token
off by parliament. Premier Borden
has recently intimated that he sees
no reason why parliament should be
called until next January. It is announced by government organs that
next session will not likely witness
any revision ot the tariff because
Hon. W. T. White is a "strong believer in tariff stability." So Is every
beneficiary by a high tarift. It is
tlie farmers and the consumers who
have to pay the tax, who agree wilh
the Liberal party's demand for a
general scaling down of thc tariff,
The wheat growers of the west and
the potato growers of the east will
this fall find in their put ses powerful
arguments for the speedy return of
the Liberal government.
It is estimated that the new United
Stales customs law will yield $248,-
000,000 a year, or nboul (2.60 per
head of population. Canada's1 customs duties this year will be about
$115,0(10,000, perhaps $120,000,000,
Ust year's total was $109,000,000.
The customs tuxes are therefore
about $1!) per head on this side of thy
border, ot almost six times as great

Whal will the Horden government
do w(th regard to wheat, Hour and
potatoes'? Under the present Canadian lariu there is ;, duty ol 12o< a
bushel ou wheat, BOC a barrel or
Hour and 20c. a bushel on potatoes.
Tin* new United States tariff provides
lhat with countries admitting American wheat, flour and potatoes free
they shall be put oa thc American
free list. To countries charging a
duty on the American product there
shall be a countervailing duty of 10c.
a bushel on wheat, 15c. a barrel on
(lout and 10 per cent on potatoes. In
each case tne countervailing duty will
be sufficient to prevent importation
from Canada.
Wheat.is Canada's chief product. It
employs two million Canadians, and
this year will provide over one-third
of the Dominion's exports. Anything which interferes with the flow
of ihis grain from the farm to the
ultimate consumer means direct and
inevitable loss to thc Canadian grain
growers—therefore, to Canada. It
would be absurd to imagine that Canadian wheat growers need a 12c. a
bushel protection against foreign
wheat. It should be as absurd to
imagine that Canadian millers need
protection for their industry, with
th" finest wheat in the world at their
door and equal opportunity for economical milling and shipping.
Sir Wm. Whyte, one of Canada's
greatest transportation experts, de-
elaroa that theie is grave danger ol
grain congestion at Fort William and)
Montreal. (irain growers and shippers know that there always has
been grain congestion on the Canadian railways every fall.
The remedy is obvious. With the
duty taken off Canadian wheat and
flour—the two articles in which Canada stands pre-eminent — the way
will be open to send Canadian wheat
through the Stales without difficulty
(From The Week, Victoria, .British
Dr. D. R. Cameron, of the Tabernacle Baptist church, has seen fit to
preach a sermon on the subject of
Christian Science. Thc sermon is an
out aad out denunciation of the
founder. Thc Week is not concerned
to defend the character of Mrs.
Kddy or the doctrines of Christian
Science. A controversialist so unreliable with respect to his facts is
not entitled to much respect when
one comes to deal with his arguments.
Instead of raking up the alleged
private details of Mrs, Eddy's life,
Dr. Cameron would do getter to address himself to the indisputable fact
that Christian Science is making
great strides in Kngland, the United
States, and Canada; that incidentally
it is making serious inroads on thc
so-called orthodox churches; that
whether it be a religion or a
science or both, or neither, it is reforming and revolutionizing the lives
of hundreds of thousands of people.
It is building churches everywhere,
and they arc filled. It is bringing
comfort and hope into lives which
have hitherto known nothing but
gloom, and it is exercising .success
fully the most remarkable curative
system of modern times. It would be
at least as remarkable that such results should follow the teaching of a
woman as bad as Dr. Cameron
makes out Mrs. Kddy to be, as it is,
to quote bis own words, "that God
should have kept the world in ignorance of this teaching for six thousand years."
Christian Science may not be all
that its adherents claim, but it must
be something very different from
what Dr. Cameron Imagines, to have
accomplished the "wonderful works"
testified to by thousands who have
received its benefits. He may shelter himself under the prophecy that
false prophets shall rise," hut if he
thinks that Mrs. Kddy is one of
them he has chosen thc worst possible line of argument with which to
convince the world. If there is any
literal meaning in the words of his
master, "By their fruits ye shall
known them," then the fruits of
Christian Science hear a testimony
which no argument can destroy.

abolished in 1772. Do you know
what such a sentence meant? Here it
is verbatim taken from thc hook
"Prisons and Prisoners," written
some years ago by a prison chaplain
of long experience in .British peniten-

"That you he taken back to the

There has never been an age in tho

played so large n part as it is doing
nt the present time. Every day Instances aro clled of men and business

the oilier hand tin* records go to
show that otuer business and men

A few weeks ago, thc announcement was made that the American
Loco mo ti™ company had decided to
discontinue tho manufacture ot their
motor trucks. This came somewhat
as a surprise to the business world
as the American Locomotive company
was in a position to manufacture
trucks more economically than most
manufacturers. Their decision to
discontinue also came at a time when
lhe demand for motor trucks was on
the Increase*, and was all the more
surprising because the company were
manufacturing a good line of cars.
The truth back of their decision to
cease manufacturing motor trucks
has just now been made public and
bad to do with their lack of advertising. The company, it seems, decided to manufacture a good car, one,
as they expressed it themselves
"which would sell on its merits."
They did not propose to spend . any
money in advertising, Their car
was undoubtedly a good one and at
11k* outset attained prominence. The
company, however, neglected to advertise it and a few weeks ago decided to discontinue its manufacture.
This venture on the part of the Am-
trican Locomotive company and their
decision not to advertise cost tbem
over $7,000,000. In contrast to this,
it is only necessary to turn to some
of the Automobile companies whose
machines are household words because of judicious advertising. These
companies are making phenomenal
One other example of what advert
using will do follows: In a little
town in the western States, three
banks were in business, all of which
were regular advertisers. A short
time ago, the three managers got together and entered into a "gentlemen's agreement" to discontinue all
publicity. They believed that there
was a lixc<i amount of business to lie
divided among them and that each
institution had been advertised merely as n matter ot self-defence to
bold its share of th'.* general business.
ln other words, they agreed to a
policy ot general disarmament. At
the end of thc first fiscal year' following thc discontinuance of the advertising, it was found that deposits
of the three ban'»"S in that town had
fallen oil 21 per cent, while their
Combined profits bad fallen off 12 per
cent. Following this discovery thc
"gentlemen's agreement'' was dissolved and today the three banks are
advertising again. This experience
could be duplicated in thousands of
cases. Practically speaking, there is
not a business of any nature that
cannot l:c aided by judicious publicity.

First,' tbe child     is
'ill ol brought into existence from no loti-
d plants sent of Its own. Many children, as
Moiitnlguo thinks, no doubt, if consulted on the subject—knowing the
conditions of the life into which thej
are to he ushered, would prefer to remain unborn The mother is primarily responsible for the existence of
the child. All the tender care, the
nitillitiidinou.K and laborious duller
that devolve upon ber, incidental ti
its rearing, are the natural eonse
i|iience of this respouslhilitv, and
must Ih* considered us such- Her
obligation ns a correct and righteous
human being demands (hat she per-
lorm these duties faithfully. Tin*
child's obligation cannot, justly arise
from the fad that the mother, to
satisfy certain claims thnt concern
herself and find alone, has simply
done her duty,
A child is iu no way to blame for
the mistake she may have made herself regarding his or her early life,
nor is his obligation greater because
her love was not confined to ihe
bonds ot reason, and because it led
her Into uncalled tor slavery and
sacrifice. Tlie ideal mother must
realize these things, because her
happiness and peace in old age depend upon her doing so.
The child    owes the mother a peeu-
him and all that pertains to bis welfare, thereby laying the foundation of
the child's respect for her, trust in
her, and difference iu opinions and
wishes in later years. A story is
told by a "ell known writer on the
subject, of a mother who was greatly
perplexed and grieved over the fact
that her daughter contradicted her
statements frequently — no new
problem we all know. She began systematically to correct the fault
her child. She studied nil the sub- |
lecis that were then comprising her
daughter's education, natural history
Icing one oi     tliem ' i «ta ll* rtittlj
walks log! hei Hiu was able to explain to the child many things that
would be encountered In the nt-xt
days lesson in natural history hy
simply reading ahead of the child's
lesson, nnd it was not long before tbe
daughter had ceased tn contradict
ber, and regarded her every statement wiih tlie profoundest ronpict.
Had she expatiated upon the child's
duty towards her ami instated upon
deference from her daughter solely
from that standpoint, the child,
while obeying outwardly, would have
been filled inwardly with contempt
for her mother. We can't successfully confront children with abstract
fads — such go too far beyond the
experience and knowledge of childhood. Tbey must have concrete objects in their education.
The mother should study the personalities and temperament of her
children as Individuals to know the
particular requirements of each, for
modern ideals, modern standards of
living, and the advanced civilization
of today have brought their peculiar
perplexities to child life, and complexities to child nature, which must
be sympathetically understood to be
successfully treated. Upon mother's
complete understanding of every phase
of her child's nature depends largely
the perfect and happy relation that
should exist between them, long after
the child is a man or woman, and
the mother has become the object ot
tender solicitude. This understanding of a mother for her children's
peculiar needs, is the prime factor iu
determining her hold on their lives
and her influence in th-ir careers. It
determines her entire relation to
them. i
Companions,      athlciic      pursuits, ■
must be    chosen    with greater care
than in earlier     days; greater alien-:
tion must    be paid    to proper dress-
and amusements;     social recognition
and personal popularity, so essential
to youthful happiness, are more difficult of attainment, and depend   upon
more varied     sources;   life is larger,'
fuller of both pain and pleasure   and j
must be viewed with greater seriousness   in  consequence.        Kducnt ional
advantages are   tenfold higher,     and
educational    problems   have increased
A child's education makes or mars
him, and there is perhaps no more
solemn moment in the life of a mother than when first she brushes the
little ringlets hack from the wide,
innocent brow, buttons the best
little pinafore, and after many gentle
warnings, watches with eyes almost
teanlimmed, the little red coated figure disappear down the street, trudg-
ng toward the school house. Thus
the little actor makes his debut in
tho world-old drama of life, and tho
possibilities for false acting, imperfect interpretation, for tragedy itself, were never so great as they are
today. |

A musjc-loving family is almost sure
to have good times at home. While
a home ought to reach out from itsell
to other homes, and to keep an open
door for friends and guests, it should
never he dependent for its cheer upon
any influence from without, For its
happy times, its daily enjoyments, il
should be sulflclenl to itself. If
cheerfulness in the home is to be
factor in Hie home's development, it
must grow from the center, not be
fastened on the circumference. The
song must be in the soul before it is
on the lip, flood times at home
among the home folk, a simple, uncostly style of living that involves
no undue anxiety, a house not too
line for daily use, and plenty of sunshine, and love, will fullfil the ideal,
ami upbuild our nation.

When You Buy a
Watch Here
THERE is one miiin advantage to you over getting
it uwny from home. This
is it:— If the wittoh
doesn't come tip to your expectations, why yon always
know where to come to have
the trouble adjusted or the
watch exchanged.
If we guarantee a watch,
that guarantee is binding. It
means what it says. If the
wntch goes wrong, and it's
the watch's fault, we are here
to make it right with you.
Buying awny from home is
different — very difl'erent,
you'll find out if you ever
have the experience,
Watch prices are as low
here as anywhere in the land
for equal values.

Sir Oliver Lodge's address to the

challenge to lhe "slime and water"
tinoiy—as- materialism has been
called — and everything to which it
leads, The distinguished principal
of the University of Birmingham dues
not dogmatize as a lesser man might
do, htil be held out the larger hope
lhal this weary planet ol ours,
which has lieen the home of the historic Christ and the birthplace of n
Sha'espcarc, is part of a great plan.
This is how he oui Iks cautions, yet
hopeful position:
"We may not know our destiny,
hut we musl hnve a destiny of some
sort. Those who make denials are
just as lively lo he wrong as trfOSO
who make assertions."
The conclusion of this deeply Impressive address was an avowal by
Sir Oliver of his personal belief that
personality persists beyond tho death
of the body. . Tbat is a mystery;
but so too, is lho fact that such an
avowal brings hope and courage to
lhe heart ol the average man. In his
hook "Man and the Universe," Sir
Oliver puis his position in these
"Hirth is change, Death is
change, perhaps; a melancholy change,
perhaps. That all depends upon circumstances and special eases, anil on
the point of view from which things
arc regarded; but, anyhow, an inevitable change. 1 want lo make the
distinct nssertion that a really existing Ining never perishes, hut »,uly
changes its form.
