Tho  farmers 'lire us' well .satisfied with  the work iih anyone. Their., only  worry is the bill,.  II is their, contention Unit tho  scheme lin.s coal a -million ,11101������  Hum I hey voted for,, Iherel'oro the  govormont should find, that amount.  They also -consider the diversion' of  .Voddor River to. be a public works  'charge, seeing I hat thc districts of  Sumas and Chilliwiick are iiuulo :w-  cure. A SuproinV, Courl ruling shows  Unit the.old Luck-n-cliick dimmed is'  Its natural course. That, was changed in a freshoi anil kept there by luir.  man agency to siive valuable property. That being so.-why saddle'the  Sumas farmers-with the burden? i  They desire, too, the appointment!  of a commission to fix Ihe dykhig j  charges in accordance "with the reproductive value of the land, and its  benefits from the dyke.  Mr. Harrow replied .that Hie Yea-  dor diversion "was part of the plans  and '.to remove it from thc dyking  charges   was   unthinkable.  In' tho course of tho work the engineers found it necessary 10 build  stronger than tho original plans demanded. This made greater security, and increased the cost.  The big Sumas dam and plant was  not 'included in the, estimates; it  was overlooked .in the figuring, and  this,, had cost over $600,000. He  was 'perfectly satisfied thc work was  well done and that the hind justified .it.  He was convinced that the government would not assume any responsibility for.the money. The land  would have to meet its obligations.  It".might be possible to adjust tho  rates of interest and repayment, so  that-the farmers could meet it more  easily, and the zones ol' levying according to benefits might be improved by making shorter steps in the  values. He intended to go over the  -whole ground himself when the present session was finished. He could  see that those who had purchased  heavily would be hard hit and the  farmer with large areas . would be  handicapped for want of capital, but  that was not the fault'of the government, he said.  in.  EXCITING  Former Agent  General Dies  LONDON, "Dec, 10.---Hon. J. II.  Turner, former premier of British  Columbia and agent-general for that  province in-London- from' 1901. until  his .retirement in-,191 6, died here  yesterday afternoon at his home in  Richmond. He was..90 years, of ago  and despite his .extreme years wad  able to go out until quite recently.  Mr. Turner was born in 1S33 - at  Ipswich, Suffolk. England, and .went  to Nova Scotia in IS5 0. Ho lived foi  some time in Prince Edward Island  before going to' British Columbia in  1862.- He was a resident of Victoria  B. C. for nearly .forty years. In  1877 he was elected to the Vietorn  council. 1 ���������  Then followed a long career ;is  a public official in the province.    Ho  was mayor of      Victoria  consecutive terms,   187-9,  1S81."    His first- term of  the. ' British    Columbia  came  in  1880,  when  he  i'or throe j  1880 and;  service    in;  Legislature!  was elected ���������  as  tlie  to the Legislative assembly  representative of' Victoria.  For the next 14 years Mr. Turner  acted as minister of finance and agriculture, for the province of-British  Columbia; This portfolio was held  by him during his term as premier,  aiid lie introduced the ��������� budget for  13 years, and also put through-acts  for the encouragement of fruit growing, dairying and the formation ?f  farmers' institutions and banks. Another notable success'attributed ��������� 'to  Mr. Turner, while a member of ���������the  Legilnfive assembly, was his changing or the financial system of the  province in 1888 by the issue of -'a  per cent, inscribed stock  in  London.

Sloan,  minis-  tor of  mines,  Premier    Oliver Unlay  announced in tho legislature that the! death of ils  government will name a royal    commission   to     investigate   flic     recent  charges made by Sir Charles Tupper  against  Hon.   \V.' Sloan   and  Mr.   W.  .1.   Dowser,   K.  C,  opposition .loader.  Tho charges were made at the recent  convention   of  the     Provincial  party-  held ,ln  Vancouver.  ' The. demand i'or an     investigation  came from  Mr. Sloan just before the  House' adjourned     yesterday    afternoon..  I -   .Hero are some of the charges and  j inl.'errogalions     uttered   by     Premier  Oliver and Mr. Manson.  j '   Premier   Oliver���������1   have   been   iu-  ; formed  that General McUae in   1920  j through a third party made overtures  j to the present leader of the Consur-  I vntive party and offered a cash con-  ' tribution if lie would bo taken  into  the cabinet      of  thc       Conservative  party.  Mr. Manson���������We want to .knovv  if he made an advance offer of $10,-  .000 .with $50,000 to follow when  he got the forfolio.  Mr:'-'Oliver���������The charge that there  is a compact between me and the  leader ol' the opposition is absolutely raise'.,.  Mr. Oliver���������General McRae in his  own story of his career said he war  an inactive partner in Davidson &  McRae when that firm was selling  Port Mann townsite lots and that  he disapproved that transaction.  I In the Vancouver' World of Sept-  ' tember 5, 19 10, appeared a full  page advertisement quoting A. D.  McRae in tho usual townsite promoter's bunk. Mr. McRae is quoted as saying that iie-and-Sir William  Mackenzie inspected the site and  found it ideal.  I blazed the trail to    that spot 45 1  years ago    and it is bog.     He    says  that the C. N.'R. is going to establish' its car manufacturing shops for  the whole system at Port Mann.  Those statements are just as true  as the statement with ,, which he is  flooding this province at  present.  Premier Oliver������������������If as he says ho  lost money in the townsite selling,  he amply made it up af the expense  of the people of this province. Price,  Watorhouse & Co., who audited the  channels into which" the proceeds of  the CN.R. bonds were distributed,  reported that the real estate worth  $572,400 acquired by"the Canadian  Northern Railway at Port Mann was  purchased from A. D. McRae and  that the price was fixed by Mr. Mc-  Leod, general manager of the CN.R.  In other words nearly $600,000 raised by this province was used to  pay A. D. McRae, who was also the  townsite agent for MacKenzie &  Mann.  .This man who sold that, bog  land .at $1000 an acre and got $00  a front foot for land 15 or 20 feet  under water is the man who impugns  the honor of this government.  Premier Oliver���������We are told that  General McRae had contributed $39,-  000 and the other apostles of purity  SS0OO towards the Provincial Party  campaign funds. What are his motives His own story tells us that  he failed in all his own industrial  investments in this province. When  he combined thc Columbia Valley  and the Fraser Mills companies ho  got the present leaders of tho opposition to waive $.15,000 of registration fees and accept $200 for the  'government, yet he now seeks Lo  drive the man who did that for him  out of public life.  Premier Oliver���������I am informed  that 85 per cent, of the employees  of the Columbia Valley Lumber company are of the Yellow Race. What  will the labor vote think of that?  Mr. Manson���������I am far from satisfied when this millionaire makes the  following income tax returns to the  province. In IDlli he paid $10..'!".;  the next 3 years nothing: 1920 he  paid $200; 1921 nothing; 1922, $85  and this year the sum of $18.70.  That figure savors more of hid  Scotch characteristic than. spending  $40,000 on campaign. funds. Let us  enquire if this Scotch gentleman is  really so ready with his cash or find  cut if some corporation having a  quarrel with this government is dealing out the cash through him.  ���������;���������- Mr. Manson���������������������������Let us see if the delegates to his recent convention paid  their own expenses or if the money  in some cases was wired out to delegates.  10I0    niunicipalil  a    shock    on  on learning of  reeve, .).

It. trestle on  the   lOlridgo ranch  early   Wednesday  morning-,   ho discovered   l.ho  body-of  the reeve, beside I ho    rails.    He  immediately    notified   the    authorities  and tho body was removed to  Huntingdon.  A verdict ol' accidental .death was  given ill, flic inquest, in Gillies' undertaking parlors and presided over  by Dr. A. J. Stuart of Mission City  Wednesday afternoon.  The municipal council, at which  the roeve presided, concluded around  9:30 p. m.-last night, and the reeve  went homo 1 through tlie Eldridgc  ranch. While crossing tlie trestle  it is conjectured that ho overbalanced and fell a distance of 30 feet to  tho rails below..  A medical examination revealed  that death must have been practical! instantaneous. The body is  stated to be shockingly crushed, besides all tho ribs on one side be;  ing broken, injuries were sustained  to the back and hip.  Mr. Atkinson was born in King.-;  county, New - Brunswick, 72 years  ago. Ho came to B. C. 30 years afterwards and settled in Sumas Prairie  in  1895.  Although this was his last term  as reeve he had served on the council for many years and was one  the prime movers in securing  provincial government to undertake  tlie Sumas Reclamation scheme. Ho  is survived by a wife.  Accidental Death  Is Jury's Verdict  j     VICTORIA,     Dec.   I.���������11   remain-  1 ed   for  Hon.   Dr.   MacLean,  Minister  ; of   Education   and   Provincial   Secro-  ' try 1 to reply to the charges made a-  gainst   the   government, on   Tuesday  by Mr. Bowser, loader of the Opposition, that the proposed redistribution  bill,  introduced  in  the     House     last,  week by Premier Oliver, was nothing  more or less    than a    gerrymander.  Mr. M'ncLoan devoted himself mainly  to   a  criticism   of   the  redistribution  bill of 1915 which was brought down  by the kite government following thc  appointment, of   a   commission        of  two judges of the    Supreme    Court,'  and which, ho claimed, had cost the  country  $9,000.  Hon. Dr. MacLean deprecated  Statements that the country is over-  governed and that representation in  the House should be materially cut  down. He contended that in the  prairie provinces there is an average  of one member to each 10,800 voters: in Ontario and Quebec, one  member to each 27,000 voters;  while in British Columbia there is  ono representative to 10,900. The  o.ther provinces of the Dominion  were better organized municipally,  he said, and cited the fact that of  the 283,000 persons in Canada living in unorganized territory, one-  half of these reside in British Columbia. Therefore it was natural  that these people should be well nv-  resen ted  in  the  Legisiatu re.  To the suggestion of the Victoria  Colonist that Victoria could well get.  uf! along with two members if the other HON.  the i districts in thc province would fall  into line with a reduced representation, the Provincial Secretary stated  that  this   would   moan   that  the   re-  A  verdict of accidental death  wan  brought in at the inquest Tuesday at  Huntingdon on  the body ol' the lato  Iteevo .1.

Northern trestle  near Kilgard.    It is thought that he  was blown off the bridge by the high  wind.

Hon. T. D. Pattulo,  minister of lands, persisted in his  defence that the best interests of  the industry and of the public were  being served by permitting export in  a limited manner, and he again  warned of the probable retaliation  of the United States if an embargo  were placed.    He showed the folly of |  in  Happily Wedded  interfering with a market already  absorbing two-thirds of the manufactured timber of British Columbia.

C. im������l Vukon Weekly Newspaper Assn.  fill OA V  ���������&~z  ajuaaim  DECEMItEK   14,   1923  In conversation with a fanner the  other day he complained of the present  system, ami what it means Lo him. Before  tlie war his dollar was worth considerably  .more than it. is today. This' farmer said he  could get, one hundred cents on the dollar for  his products when he wished lo purchase  goods, while today his products were so low  priced thai lie did not. get ���������much more, if any  more, than one-third in goods of what his  dollar was worth.  .    lie had the question'    analyzed   in   this  way.   There were three points in regard     to  farm produce.    First, there was the quantity:  next, there was the quality,    and lastly there  was tlie marketing.    The first two had been  solved by the farmer of the Fraser Valley to  his satisfaction, as   both    the   quantity   and  quality of. his produce was a very fair average  of that produced   anywhere in any   farming  . community.    But the marketing   of his product was a joke.     While there were hundreds  and thousands who did not   have enough to  eat;   many not enough to properly    nourish  them in the towns r'and cities,   yet there was  not even a fair price for any   farm    product.  This year large quantities of it lay rotting.  He said, "Now if 1 can raise the quantity and  the quality of farm produce, it surely   is not  up to me to also find a market for it."  Let us apply this to one product of the  farm that is predominant in the Fraser Valley  1 ���������that is fruit. The small fruits of the  Fraser Valley are on an equal basis with the  best that reaches the market. It may not be as  nicely put up as some .'of it but the quality is  there and so is the quantity. But surely  there is something radically wrong with th'i  selling agencies that take this fruit from the  farmer.    Our market commissioner says  "There are three ways of handling fruit. First there  was the establishment of fruit prices at the point of  shipment; second, rolling cars sold on arrival by  agents or representatives of the growers; and third,  consignment. He further stated that the f. o. !>.  price at shipping point was the ideal method ,on a  market, but had limitations that would tend to keep  purchases down to a very conservative basis, and with  a large crop to handle might restrict distribution.  Shipping to agents had many points to commend it  provided the organization at the assembling end had  sufficient control to limit the number of cars shipped  when advisable to do so. If competent representatives of organized growers were stationed at points  on the prairies, preferably at Calgary, to look after  growers' intereststhey could establish agencies of their  own which would eliminate loss due to differences between the two brokerage houses now operating there.  Consignment selling had proved so disastrous that  it could be well eliminated from the discussion of  marketing  fruit."  This paper has advocated the first method time and again, and we believe the grower would be perfectly satisfied with it uncil  such time as the markets recover the pre-war  equilibrium. What the grower wants is a  little ready cash for his fruit for the next few  years, so that he can get on his feet again.  Then he would undoubtedly want the second  method that of "rolling" cars to representatives on the prairies.  We would like to see the selling organizations for the Fraser Valley fruit work to  the end that next year the grower will get returns for his crop at the point of shipment, even if that was no.t the high prices  published in the Markets Bulletin. Why have  another year shipping fruit on consignment?  The farmer, the fruit grower deserves better than that he should have to  take all the risks. During the war he was  asked to produce in order to win the war.  He produced. He won the war. The farmer  won the war by producing. Why should not  those in authority now help the farmer to  market the increased production? He is  just as important as ever he was, and titers  are as many hungry people today as the.e  were during the war.  According to the report tabled in the  Legislature a few days ago it was shown that  785 mothers and 1990 children were receiving assistance under the "Mother's Pemsmu-  Act" in September of this year. The disbursement of $413,948.00 was made at an administration of 3.44 per cent. . The Workmen's  Compensation Board administers the Act.  A better name for the "Mother's Pensions Act" would be "The Favorite Mather's  Pension Act." Either the act or the adSaaAttls-  (ration of it is a misnomer.

The policy of the new Provincial Party with rogunl  to the Pacific Groat Eastern Railway was settled t-y  means of a. resolution passed recently by the convention held in Vancouver, the resolution Inning been amplified by remarks from General A. D.  McRae, leader of the parly.  The  resolution  adopted  by  the convention  Is as  follows:  "That a non partisan royal commission, preferably under the chairmanship of one of the chief  justices of 13. C. -and comprising representatives of  the different interests of the province, be appointed  and charged with the full investigation of.the P. (J. 15.  system and itSvpossibilities for completion and successful operation as .originally planned; this commission to have full power to engage any experts cr  other expert assistance required and to report, to the  Legislature to assist in determining what is to be done  with the property in the best interests of the pcopla  as a whole.''  In explaining ihe import of the resolution General McRae is reported to have stated categorically  "The P.G.E. cannot be abandoned," and to have proceeded, " to do so would be to condemn a large section of the province, which has not had a fair chance.  The lower section could be made to pay by the development of the timber and mineral resources, whilj  the upper section could be supported by colonization  (around Prince George and the development of th������  pulp and paper industry. This was, provided one of  the transcontinental lines could not be persuaded to  operate this section of the P. G. 13. by linking up witli  it from Ashcroft."  Prom the above it would appear that the Provincial Party stands for a thorough investigation upon  which to arrive at a decision as to what would be tho  best course to pursue with regard to the Pacific Great  Eastern Railway. Inasmuch as General McRae assured the convention that the railway cannot be abandoned and it was under thai-construction that the resolution was adopted, it would follow that the duties  of the proposed commission would be confined to  making recommendations as to the best course to be  followed for the continued operation of the railway  and for its completion in this connection, the reported  remarks of General McRae point to the conclusion  that he considers that the est solution of the problem would be that one of the transcontinenal railways  take over and operate the P. G. E. Railway and further that he is of the opinion that if this were done  it would entail the construction of a cut-off 'from  Clinton to Ashcroft to connect with the lines of he  C. P. R. or of the C. N. It., in which case the fate of  the lines of the P. G. B from Clinton to Squamisli  would  remain  to be decided.  The future policy of the province relative to the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway is a matter , of th.*  first importance to every constituency traversed by its  lines and the electors now have before them the official pronouncements of all three parties. Premier  Oliver has declared himself in favor of .the completion of the Railway to Prince George. Hon. W. J.  Bowser, leader of the opposition, has definitely coiu-  .mitted his party to the completion of the lines to  Prince George wthout delay and to North Vancouver  as soon as finances will permit. To these is now  added, as above, the official statement of the position  of the Provincial party.  LOG  KMltAItttO   J>KI5ATK   OV'Ull  VICTORIA, Dec. 10.���������A safe go\-  eminent majority carried the suggestion to the Legislature, advance-.!  by the Minister of Lands, Hon. T.  D. Pattullo, that at the present time  there should be no duty placed upon  the export of unmanufactured timber from this province, as advocated  by Mr. Kenneth Duncan, nor should  there be total prohibition of export  as called for by Mr. \V." J. Bowser,  K. C, leader of the Conservative  opposition. The matter was debated at length in the House hist  week. In fact the entire afternoon  was taken up in the discussion, the  only bright feature of the sitting  being Major R. J. Burde's remarks.  The debate had become badly involv-  ad by the'-various amendments which  had been submitted to the original  motion of Mr. Duncan, independent  member for Cowichan, calling for a  heavy export duty on unmanufactur-  1 od timber. Then followed the amendment by Hon. Mr. Pattullo requiring  that the. whole matter be referred  to the Royal Commission now sitting  in the east to consider the question  of the embargo upon export of pulp-  wood. The Minister's amendment  was to the effect that Ottawa be asked by the province to extend the  scope of tho commission to take in  the B. C. situation. 'Mr. Bowser had  an amendment calling i'or total prohibition of export after January 1,  1925, and when that was ruled out  of order by Mr. Speaker on. the  ground that it interfered with federal jurisdiction over trade and commerce, along came Mr. Joshua  Hinchlil'fe, Victoria's Conservative  member, with an additional amendment .expressing regret that the government did not see its way clear to  prohibit export of -unmanufactured  timber after December 31, 192-1.  This last amendment, it was argued  by Liberal speakers in the! debate,  practically meant a want of confidence  resolution.  The net result of the    discussion  was that the    Pattullo    amendment  was    approved,  were necessary.  ���������H'o\v wonderful is the human voice.  is indeed the organ of the soul."..  ���������LONGFELLOW.  A strong plea for a more progressive agricul-  tunar policy in this Province, to the end that the.  growers may be assisted to secure increased markets  .and greater agricultural development was made in  the Legislature last week by J. \V. Jones, Conservative member for South .Okanagan, when he joined  in the debate on the address in reply to. the speech  from the throne. The member roundly scored I lie-  Minister of Agriculture. Hon. E. D. Barrow, asserting the latter has failed in the administration of his  office, and he urged a more aggressive Minister is  a necessity.  South Okanagan's member criticized the speech  from the throne pointing to the fact that it ignored  'the'pressing problems facing thc Province. The Premier, in his speech, too, had given the House no,ink-,  ling of i-how tlie government proposed to carry out the  ���������development, plans for the upbuilding of the Province  and the betterment of the people. Ministers had been  making trips to and fro through the country; two of  them had just returned froin lOnglund, but not a hint  to show that in consequence of these jaunts, taken at  the expense of the public, any good  will result.  Mr. Jones scored Premier Oliver for his penchant  for "throwing his hat in the ring." Ho considered  there was a better way of fighting the freight rates  case than by quarreling' with the C. P. R. officials  and members of the railway board. He recalled that if  the Premier wanted to fight there was a six-foot ring  at Salmon Arm into which Gen. A: D. McRae had Pu-  vited the Premier, but so far the latter had steered  clear from the point.  Mr. Jones declared the farmers of the Province  were in dire straits and must be given some encouragement, but not a suggestion relative thereto was  forthcoming.

SNOW KKMOVAL  Probably many people in Canada  fondly believe that snow removal  from city streets is purely a. problem for our own country,, and that  our neighbors to the south have so  much more genial a climate that  snow removal only becomes a pressing question every few years.  But the fact that our excellent  contemporary in the municipal field  of our southern neighbor. The A-  merican City Magazine, gives considerable space to "The Snow-Removal  Problem"-hi two issues prove.-' Hint  the problem is a puzzling one and do-  serves serious consideration.  Statements are quoted that the  snowstorm in February, 11120. cost  New York merchants $00,000,000,  and that one in Chicago in MILS  caused a loss in trade of $20,000.-  000. These show the cost of absence  of  snow-removal   means.  The official records of the U.      S.  (Vheat Bureau show a great    variation from year to year, but do    nor.  indicate a permanent decrease at any  : point.  I     There is little doubt that the idea  of the heavy falls    in    the    "old-fa-  'shioned  Winters" were really due to  i the failu're to remove it, so that the  1 accumulation   was   not  any    greater  than it would be today if none were  removed.

Snow rollers are.; useful where  sleighs are still used, but are root  satisfactory -where   motors are  used.  Melting requires too much heat to  be practical.  Hand loading of trucks or wagons  is efficient in conjunction with  ploughs or scrapers, but is very expensive.  'Snow-ploughs are of two    general  types���������the pusher and straight blado i  and the V or locomotive type plough.  A third type, not yet in general use,  is  the rotary plough.  The rotary snow broom is, an  adaptation  of the  sweeper.  Tractors are being generally used  for all classes of work and are being used more and more for snow  removal. Reports from different  cities show how efficient they are  proving. Steam shovels are being  used in some places with good retail is.  Snow-loaders are the latest development in mechanical handling,  and one has a record of 2,000 cubic  yii-ids in  1 0 hours.  It is claimed that "the essential  point for snow removal is a pre-arranged schedule. . . . It is  better to start as soon as an inch has  accumulated."  In the same issue r.rc two other  articles of snow removal in small  places and both emphasize the necessity of commencing early, so as to  have a good deal of the snow removed before more falls. Snowploughs  are attached to trucks; steam  shovels with extra large but light  buckets are used. Clearing the side-  walhs  was  found  to please the citi-  i.

We are aiming atj a generation of  superlatively healthful, all round  developed men and women of character and leadership of courage and  ability; men and women trained lo  meet and deal successfully with a  mass of staggering problems in politics, in businoss, in religion, and in  social  relationships.  This is the century of "Youth;" is  tho present state of civilization tho  ideal state? not quite, but perhaps no  other period lias devolopedso much  popular attention to the problems of  youth or has so much been actually  accomplished   toward   their   solution.  Our first responsibility rests, I  believe in the home; character, temperament, and intellectual power  depend mainly upon the impressions  received in early life; ijf, as Sliailer  Matthews has said, "A disintegrating  home means a disintegrating so-  iety," this then ,is a time of greatest  challenge as well as opportunity.  The home is absolutely the key to  sucessful child training, and no  other agency, primary or supplementary ever can take the'place of a normal home in the life of a growing  child.  i High class, intelligent, purposeful homes are and must continue to  be the very hub about which any  really effective programme of child  training is to be built for the family is the unit of the state and the  house is the centre of all social, economic and educational good.1  The home, correlating, stimulating  co-operating with school, church  and community, endeavoring to make  of the child a high class man or  woman; suggesting, guiding determining, how much of this and  that is the ideal condition to be  sought after.  By co-operation of the parent and  child the best in the natures of both  may be brought out. The functions  of a parent are a responsibility that  no institution, or government or social state, will ever be able fully to  assume.  Home makes character: character  determines destiny:  The "great and over-shadowing  peril of a child's life is not, as many  suppose the bad companions or the  bad' books or the bad habits; it is  the peril of homelessness; that  does not mean no bed, nor room, or  roof; but the isolation of the child's  soul, the lack of any one to listen,  the. loss of roots to" hold" him to his  place and make Mm grow.  "I saw a bird's \ nest    in a  etc.'!  Thus, I would claim that our  responsibility   to   our  children  iii the home and that for which  stands.  Our second responsibility rests, 1  believe in the co-operation of our  home and school life���������few- parents  know very little of what the school  is aiming at or doing, excepting for  vague memories, of olden days or  the confused accounts of the children.  I believe, more determined efforts  speaking, every boy must atiun<  school; assuming this fact home education has to adjust itself to a curtain extent to the life of the school;  that your child should go to school,  clean and neat, Is a matter of course  but, none the less important, punctuality should be evident, regularity of attendance is of vital importance; above all take a deep interest  in not only Ihe child but the school  life of which he is so important a  part.  Another responsibility rests in  the relationship between tlie Sunday school and tho homo: the function of the Sunday school is to supplement, not supplant, the influence  of the home, the S. S. begins its  work when the child is four or five  years of ago, the home begins wh.li  the first conscious experiences; the  home continuously. The S. S. deals  with lessons; the home with life itself, the S. S. presents moral laws,  the home forms habits; however in  order for the S. S. to carry out the  work for which it is intended it is  necessary for us as teachers to give  it, our full support and active assistance.  Tho last responsjility , I would  mention is the interviewing of community responsibility and citizenship  ter enhusiascallywp.mhlmkyfthrdl  to the children so that they' will  enter enthusiastically into the regulations necessary for the best well  being of the community; delinquency is only mis-directed energy,  breaking of laws boys do. not understand or even know exist; the time  to make good citizens of individual  is while they are children; it is as  easy to form as reform and a far  better investment.  The task of the community is to  secure intelligent co-operation from  all its citizens, young and old, but  to do this the community must have  strong, law abiding parents, constantly interpreting .  its biggest sense.  Our responsibilities  ren 'rest principally in  through the home to  church and the state.  1 wonder if I' could sum up our  responsibilities to our children by  the thoughts expressed by Douglas  Mallock in  his stanza on  "My Son."  citizenship  iu  to   our  child-  the home and  the school, tho  museum   for curlOKltlcH.       ,,  The one-mnn cro.ss:ciil is a little  bettor, while the two-man cross-eii!  is a distinct step in Ihe evolution of  sociability.

Tea houses on  mountain peaks were unheard of a  few years ago, but to-day- there are  at least a dozen of.them situated in  the Canadian Rockies.  Two of the most picturesque are  the "Beehive" on the shores of Lake  Agnes, about two miles and a half  from the Chateau and the other a  rustic log cabin on the top of Mount  Fairview. Walking and pony excursions over the mountains in the vicinity of this picturesque lake are  among the popular pastimes of  visitors from all parts of .the globe  to "the lakes in the clouds."   ,  -From the "Beehive" one can get a  perfect view of Mirror Lake and  Lake Louise, which, with Lake Agnes,  are known as "the lakes in the  clouds." This cosy little tea room  is owned by Miss B. Dodds and  operated during the season by Miss  Goddard.    Its furnishings are quaint  and  rustic.  The foodstuffs are delivered every  morning by pack pony from the  Chateau Lake Louise���������even fuel for  the cook stoves is transported in  this way.  In addition to the tea room there  is an attractive, assortment of antiques from various parts of the  globe, collected during the winter  months by Miss Dodds, who usually  goes abroad.  There are many surprises of scenic  beauty along the trail to the tea  room, but perhaps the most interesting fact is that one- can obtain a  delicious cup of English tea, with  equally delicious home cooking within sight and sound of whistling marmots and squirrels and chipmunks  that leap from bough to bough, and  often within sight of friendly bears  who come close to the kitchen door  in search of tasty food.  One of the most interesting trips  at Lake Louise is by a narrow, wind  ing path on Mount Fairview to Saddleback Tea Room and" Rest House,  which is 2,500 feet higher than the  Chateau. This quaint little log  cabin, situated on Mount Fairview,  overlooks Saddleback Mountain, so'  called because of its rock formation  being similar to a saddle. It takes  almost two hours by pony to make  the trip over a steep zigzag trail,  from which can be seen winding  streams and rushing brooks thousands of feet below.  This tea room and rest house, like  "Beehive," is owned by Miss Dodds  and operated by Miss A. E. Whynian.  Its surroundings are most artistic  and restful. Thc view of Paradise  Valley and Mount Temple from the  tea house is one of the finest in the  Rockies.  Daily supplies of food and fuel are  transported by pack ponie3 from the-  Chateau to serve approximately 25-  guests a day, who are well rewarded i  for their journey to the "highest tea j  house in Canada," :iC..,..^'  OBINSON  CRUSOE  was the Original Optimist.

It is also used  by electricians, pattern makers and  dentists. The greater part of the  wax produced, however, is used by  beekeepers in the manufacture of  comb foundations.  As wax is worth more than three  times as much per pound as honey,  everp particle produced in the apiary  should be saved. In an apiary run  for extracted honey the greater  part of the wax will be from cap-  pings while a large amount can be  obtained from broken or discarded  combs and pieces of burr combs  scraped from the hives and frames  during the summer.  As a certain amount of impurities  are present in the wax as taken from  the apiary it is necessary to adopt  some method of rendering or extracting the wax pure. Two methods are  in general use, one by using the heat  from the sun and the other by means  of artificial heat. Rendering wax by  means of the solar wax extractor is  a slow process and only suitable for  small amounts of cappings or pieces  of new comb. For a large amount  of cappings and new comb most of  the wax can be extracted by mel tin it  it in hot water and then allowing it  to cool. The wax being the lighter  will rise to the top and harden,    ' ...  For old combs that have been used  in the brood chamber or contain pollen it will be necessary to use pressure to separate the wax from the refuse. Several good hot water presses  are on the market and any one of  them will soon pay for itself in a  fair-sized apiary.. The combs are  first placed in a tank containing hot  water and thoroughly melted. A  sheet of burlap or some similiar material is spread over the bottom rack  of the press and two or three gallons  of the molten mass is poured into it.  The edges of the burlap are then  folded over evenly and another rack  placed on top of it. The press is then  tilled with boiling water. The top  rack is then pressed down by means  of a screw and tlie wax forced out of  the cheeseHii (lie burlap.
