"He that will not contribute to the
'upbuilding ol his own community is
worse than an infidel." That splendid
maxim contributed to American literature by one ot tbe greatest statesmen during the reconstruction period
following the Civil War, is of even
greater import to small communities

■originally written. We say this unqualifiedly, for the small community

big city stores than can possibly be
quoted by the small dealer of the local community. They base this belief
on the understanding they have yarned from earnest study of tbe expensive catalogue of the mail-order
housees and the full page newspaper
advertisements ert the big city stores,
every one of which cost well up into
the hundreds of dollars. Now let us
see what the facts are in the matter.

perfectly legitimate manner, is sucking the very life's blood out of the

They are doing all they can. Are we doing all we can? Compared with

us. Let us give our fellow-countrymen the best of our knowledge, our
.experience, our intellectual eft irt, that the nation as a whole may >ro-
fit. By so doing we shall become the better imbued with the i spirit of
national service—that sense of public duty which the men in khaki nra

consciousness that we, too, are "doing our bit,"
Rebounding from two years aul more of the most , destructive and
wasteful war in history, the \vorld will plucge into a trade and economic contest in which forces will assume tota.ly new alignments, wh.u
competition will be keener and stronger than ever, and when science
and organization will play a leading part in any successful role.' For
this struggle Canada must gird up her loins and make ready her full
equipment of preparedness. She haa the advantage over many other
countries in richness and abundance of resources, in geographical world
position, in vigor of race,and in robustness of intellectual and moral
fibre, while hope, verging on pronounced optimism1, is an abiding and
stimulating force with our people.
"I doubt however if we yet sense adequately the unnatural situation
in which we have become involved, or thc wrench and strain that will
accompany the resumption   of     our  natural and normal position.'
"The question which it seems to me each should face is this: 'What
will be the situation as regards o:ir industry in Canada when the war
ends and how can we best meet it?' "

To the Editor of' the Mail-Herald:
Sir: According to your valuable paper "the new South boundary ot the
Park, approved of by the City Council and by the Board of Trade, runs
along quite close to the northerly
boundary of the city." And I, with
other citizens generally, "am respect
fully suggested to co-operate with the
Park authorities in preserving tho
game within tbe confines of thc l*ai'jt.
Since coming to Revelstoke' I have
tried to be a loyal and law-abiding
citizen, with a well developed hunch
however, in the pursuit of personal
freedom and outdoor sport. The man
lo\ing the last    is usually a follower
ol the first; and the "respectful" bjj
gestiom of the Board of Trade puts a
pressure upon hoth inclinations whicn
I really cannot "respectfully" receive.
Granting that their interest is wholly
for the protection of the game within
the confines of the Park; my Id-.'is, at
least, lead me to think them astray,
.lust as much astray from the sportsman's viewpoint, as were the City
Fathers who put in the present power
dam without a fish ladder. If tbey
don't know yet what harm that has
done to fishing and for fishermen, let
I them take time from passing resolutions on. Park boundaries, in the Interests of game, to go fishing on one
of the nicest and most accessible
streams in this vicinity, the Illecille-
' waet above the dam. Its all dam,
with another letter added, by every
fisherman clear through to Glacier.
But, back to the game which the
Executive of the Board ol Trade wish
me to aid in preserving. Please, what
game?     Bears     or    birds, cariboo or
deer?     All but the birds live   mostly all expect to get either sport, or even

What a stink! Respectful suggestion,
isn't it? As to cariboo or deer—when
within walking distance—I do not yet
bunt from my auto—are to bc, if not
already iri,  the Park boundaries.
No!   I cannot   "respectfully,"   but I
