J. L. Starr,  president, gave favorable consider-  tion to the Women's Institute proposals for the establishment of a  public park on the site ' of the old  Municipal Hull.  Many years ago a strip of land adjoining the old Yale road v/as given  to the Council by Mr. Ewen for Uk>  use of the people. The first municipal  building was put there and the  grounds have been used for May 2-1  picnics, as regularly as "high water"  would permit.  It is now proposed to purchase another four acres' adjoining the original half acre on which the old hall  stands. The Council will advance  $50 to the Institute so that they may  obtain an option on the "park." The  ladies will then organize a "drive"  for the remainder of the purchase  money, the deed being vested in the  municipality.  A grant of $150 was also made to  the Institute for the improvement  of Musselwhite cemetery grounds. A  shelter will be erected for the sexton,  some stumping and grading will be  done and the portion already occupied will be beautified.  35AKE PLANS FOll  -AN-NUAL-FASiL TFAITl  SUMAS; COUNCIL  The correspondence before the  council showed that no "reduction in  charges' for indigent patients is to  bo expected from outside ''hospitals.  $2.50 per day is the minimum, i   0  A personally-signed letter from H.  W. Thornton, head of the National  Railways stated that the council's  communication oh the. Fraser River  erosion had been received, but no  action  on  tlie  matter was indicated  Plans of a one-acre plot on the  Clenrbrook road-, as conveyed from  James Walker to the Poplar Community Hall Co.. were evidences of  the progress made at this now centre  of social activity.  For the convenience, of podlnw  found soliciting trade without a license, the council will permit constables to carry receipt forms for  the payment of this levy,  For the bridge and fill confront  on the Marsh road, Dr. It.'Nicholson  tendered to complete the work for  $250, A. A. Boyle for $325, and R  Stewart, to whom the contract will  go, for $232.60.  A well attended meeting of the  Abbofsford-Sumas Agricultural Association was' held on Wednesday  evening. On account of ' illness, the  resignation of Mr. A. George as president was accepted, and Mr. A. Hulton-Harrop was elected in his place-  Much general discussion arose  over the advisability of holding the  annual Fair in Abbotsford as in former years.  The Municipality of Matsqui does  not care to give the usual grant toward this Fair, and there has been  some talk of the Sumas Municipality  holding a Fair of their own. However, after the matter had been well  considered, the association decided  to carry on, and-the annual Fair  will  be held as' usual.  It was thought advisable however  to dispense with the annua] flowev  show, as it lias not been a financial  success recently. A request was received from the True Blue Association! to be permitted to sell tags on  Fair day in aid of the True Blue Orphanage. The "request was readily  granted:  Now that Abbotsford has decided  to hold a Fair it is the duty of every  citizen to' give the affair their entire  support, and make it a bigger success than ever, and/also: boost your  town. ,  si::fy children find  entertained at the  home of Mrs W. !<.

Moiv.  d'scussion has taken place during  the past few months than for the  past thirty years in the matter. Undoubtedly Premier Oliver believes  that it. is only a matter of'education  ana he is holding his meetings with  that object in view. There seems  to be but little real objection to the  province of, British ' Columbia being  given her rights In the matter of  fair freight rates. It is a question  that, should have been settled long  days ago.  Industries in British Columbia  will not prosper in the ' future any  more than they have in the past until such time as the markets of the  east arc open to B. C. industries,  and there is nothing that will help  towards this end more than the present proposed equalization of  freight rates.  The present discussion is making  th������ rasie"~ier see that all of Canada  d^os not lie along the St. Lawrence  and ca������t nf the Great Lakes: will  they nlso see that their selfishness  hW nrevented the opening up of the  vest as it should have been in the.  y?.?t. The great undeveloped resources of this province should have  t>r the past quarter of a- century  helped to bring prosperity to all of  Canada, but many a bright , prospect in the west   "has been blighted  n-.; -���������������������������'��������� -'������!o in beauty and interesting  in history.

This question every motorist  some day asks .himself. And it's  when the automobile owner has to  beconae an automobile salesman that  he loses or profits by how lax or  how attentive he has been in keeping  his car in condition.  Every motor car dealer is up to  his neck in the perplexities of the  used car problem. The car owner  wjio is' seeking a trade-in is confronted with a schedule of valuations  that has he^n established by years of  experience in annraising used machines. He must, nine times out of  ten. take what is offered. His alternative is' to seek a private haver, a  job that grows mm-e difficult each  year as the number of automobile  owners  increases.  But any car owner, by a small  amount of foresight, can protect  himself against the day when he will  want to dispose of his used car. An  by the fact that the easterner could   astonishingly     small   amount   of  at-  see no good coming out of the west   tention to.his machine will    make it  and that to spend any money in as  sisting     development     was  a  . pure  waste.  It is hoped that "Premier Oliver  will keep the matter out of politics.  Gen. McRae "would leave his past  record to a committee of one hundred. Would they be chosen friends  or would he allow Premier Oliver, or  one of his ministers to act? We believe A. G. Manson would be a good  man to pick out good men and true.  Perhaps M."A.' M. would help? Of  course we'want to give' McRae a  fair trial and we believe the- unbiased jury of the electorate of B. C  will decide as to the fitness of the  leader when the proper time comes.  President Beattie' of the C P. R-  at the'annual meeting this month of  the company among other things  said:'  "This' company is Canada's largest property owner and largest taxpayer. No other corporation or citizen has a greater interest in the national welfare, nor. contributes I  think, more to' its advancement." Its  railways were protected and constructed for the purpose of carrying  out one of the terms-of Confederation, namely, the construction of a  transcontinental railway connecting  the railways of eastern Canada with  the seaboard" of British' Columbia,  and the contract with the Dominion  government contains a provision for  its perpetuation. It can therefore  justly claim to be in the truest  sense a national work. The purposes  for which it will be projected have  been more than fulfilled, thousands  of miles' of other lines have been added to the original undertaking, linking the provinces of Canada, most  of them pioneer lines, anticipating  settlement and providing transportation facilities for remote districts.  By its steamships it has provided  for the foreign trade of Canada, and  by Its colonization work it has been  the means of'attracting many' thousands of settlers. Its. success in all  these directions has brought other  less" direct, but at,the same time substantial, benefits to Canada in the  attraction ; of'foreign capital and  foreign  enterprise."  HIGHEST PEAK IN  CANADIAN   ROCKIES  Mount Robsori National Park-  holds for the tourist and explorer  new trails through new wonderful  lands in a great unspoiled Alpine  kingdom, 'where nature and beauty  vie with each other. It is a count-v  abounding in big things; majestic  poaks, deep canyons and water fall3.  Tn fact, it is doubtful if anywhere in  an equal area such mountain scenery and wonder features can be  found. Camps are located in Mount  Robson Park for accommodation of  tourists, where saddle horses and  pack horses are available. An observation platform has been constructed by the Canadian National  Railways, at Mount Robson station,  where all trains stop'for a few minutes to afford travelers the opportunity of viewing this vast and a-  mazing territory. Mount Robson,  the highest peak in the Canadian  Rockies, is plainly seen from the  train. The "Continental Limited"  en route to the Pacific ' Coast traverses this new playground, and for  many miles follows the North  Thompson   and   Fraser     Rivers,   re-  preferred stock,"    whether    he    is  trading in with the dealer- or selling  for-cash-to an. individual.  A Rig' Advantage  A comparatively small amount of.  lubrication correctly applied during  the "first hand" ownership of an  automobile is worth more than all  the "salve" and salesmanship the car  owner may have at his' command  when he endeavors to dispose of the  machine. ,  The expert used car appraiser has  a high regard for the value of chassis lubrication, after he has looked  at the motor, you will see him- go  carefully over the springs, steering  gear, and other chassis points. If he  finds evidence'of insufficient lubrication he knows the car has1 been  subject io unnecessary vibration for  thousands of miles, tlie engine, transmission and body has been strained  by this abuse.  If one is selling to a private individual, chassis' lubrication is of  equal, or even greater importance.  Probably the greatest resistance to  the sale of used cars is the prevalent idea among non-motorists that  a'used car is necessary noisy, that  it is certain to be full- of squeaks  and rattles. The used car buyer who  gets a, ride in a car that has been  carefully lubricated during Jt3  first ownership' is" certain to be influenced by the absence of such annoyances.       ���������*������-  It's remarkably. easy, too to keep  the chassis action of the car velvety  and quiet. Most automobile engineers and builders, realizing the great  importance of chassis lubrication,  have practically standardized on the  Alemite High Pressure system of  lubrication. All points to be lubricated are fitted with hall check  nipples to which the Alemite compressor is easily and quickly attached by means of a bayonet coupling.  Then, a few turns of the handle  fills the bushings' or bearings with  new, fresh lubricant._ All grit and  dirt are expelled.  The use. of - Alemite is growing  universal for the simple reason it  means positive lubrication of all  chassis bearings and, because it is  so convenient, motorists' will lubricate the chassis���������something that  was dreaded by most, car owners  when'. they had old fashioned grease  and oil cups for their cars.  Many motorists are also installing the Alemite lubricating spring  covers that keep the springs bathed  with lubricant, and exclude all water, dust and grit.  nature, luuction, and value of-the  various manures, - fertilisers, and  soil amendments:' third, an explanation of the formulae and facers  hivolved in the valuation of fertilizers and preparations of home mixtures and fourth, suggestions for the  fertilizer treatment,,'ofAfield cropu,  etc.,  Regarding' commercial fertilizers,,  the Dominion Fertilizers' Act provides, for tlie registration of even  fertilizer offered for sale as' such in  Canada. A registration number is  givan and this number serves as a  inerns of :den< ii'icafion, for the Ac!  provides that the guarantee of analyses, tegcther with ths: i-e_';:'r-!.rr-  number of the fertilizer, shall be  stencilled sm each bag or other container or printed legibly on a tag attached durably thereto. In connection with this p-ovis'on of the Act  the Bulletin points out that on thc>  market there am numerous���������fa."  too numerous��������� brands cf ready-mixed fertilizers that contain varying  percentages and proportions of nitrogen, phosphoris ac'd and potash  Many of those arc described by the  manufacturer  as  being    specially  a-  dopfed for thej needs of certain crops  The farmer,' however, should study  the composition, not the ua'-::e of L!v:  fertilizer. , Some fertilize:' mixtures'  arc called by attractive and Often  very pretentious names. But a-name  especially if a misnomer, is a. poor  basis whereon to build the reputation of, a fertilizer. r. To safeguard  farmers against misrepresentation  hi naming, the present regulation::  in connection with the Fertilizer Act  do not permit, the name of any crs^p  or group of crops as part of flic  brand name; neither do they permit  the use of any name as part of the  brand which in the opinion of the  Minister of Agriculture is considered misleading.���������Dominion Department of Agriculture.  \-  BOOST YOUR TOWN  CO.MM ERCIA L EERTI1-1ZEI IS  Statement of    Analysis     Should    bo  Carefully k(.u<11<mI by  Purchaser.  Now is the time of the year when  the nature and composition of the  fertilizers that are likely to be used for next season's crops should be  well studied. A bulletin ' that is  particularly rocommended for this  purpose is entitled "Fertilizers for  Fielsl Crops," of which Dr. Frank T.  Shutt, Dominion Chemist, and B.  Leslie Enislie, Soil' Fertility Specialist, are the authors, and which can  be- had without charge on application to the Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.  The plan and scope of the bulletin  have been suggested by enquiries  received and include, first, the results rrom recent field experiments;  second, a discussion of the    source,  "My town is the place where my  home is founded, where my business  is located, whore my vote is cast-  where my children are ' educated,  where my neighbors dwell, and  where niy life is . chiefly lived. 1  have chosen it, after due consideration, from among all the towiis of  the earth.

My town supplies me with law and  order; trade and friends', ..education,  morals, recreation, and the rights of  a free-born Canadian. I should believe in my town and work for it.  and I will.'"  The above, from an exchange, is  good horse sense. . It displays the  proper spirit, and is applicable  any town. Why should we not  be boosters' for this town? The  swer must, perforce, be in the  firmative'i    Every resident should  to  all  anally e  a supporter to advance this town,  and to quote a Coueism, "Make it  better day by day, and in every way."  ���������Kootenay Times.  USE  YALE  ROAD  TO  IJELLINGTTAM  LANGLEY PRAIRIE, May 5.���������  Efforts are being made to divert  as much as possible of the through,  traffic between Bellingham and New  Westminster over the Yale road  through the South Aldergrove port  of entry. This route, with the exception of the detours which must  be traversed until the recently completed paving over the Serpentine  Flats' has set sufficiently, is reported to be in good condition for the  entire distance. In tact, several motorists who .have been over it. during  the past few,, days state that even  with the detours it is preferable to  either of  the roads through Surrey;  On the Canadian side for the  whole length the road has' good  width, the lack of which is one of.  the greatest drawbacks of both the  Hall's Prairie and Coast Meridian  routes. There is alsoVa fairly good  grade. On the other side of the  line the distance between the border  at South Aldergrove through Lyndon is approximately 20 miles, about:  13 of which are hard surfaced, while  for the remaining seven the road is  gravelled and is.reported to be in  exceptionally good shape.  With the opening of the Serpentine Flats pavement on May 24 this  route will have still further advantages, and it is expected that once  these are generally known it will rap  idly gain in favor with the motor  associations will probably be asked  to use their influence to divert the  traffic over this' route.  In using it at present when the  Flats section is closed, the Highway  is left at the Coast Meridian, thence  north to the Townline at Port Kells.  The Townline is followed until the  Latimer is reached, which again connects up with the Yale about two  miles from Langley Prairie. The  Yale road is taken to the corner of  the County Line road, one mile west  of Aldergrove, where a turn south  is made.

EDMONTON, May 7.���������That the  proposed lower freight rate of %\)  for Alberta coal to ..Ontario will not  be, sufficient to allow of any_ big development of the Ontario market by  Alberta is' the unanimous opinion of  Edmonton coal operators when told  of the announcement of Sir Henry  Thornton.  "It will undoubtedly help some,"  said one prominent operator, "but it  is not low enough to Open a. market  for continuous shipments during  the summer mouths. To make a  continuous summer market demand,  we would have to get a $0 rate.  lUJilllKK IS  USED  TO OMEAT EXTENT  Three hundred and seventy-five  rubber manufacturers in the United  States and Canada reported to the  Rubber association of America that  in !!)22 they used 27.r>,285 tons' of  enisle rubber. Publication of these  figures show that rubber consumption is still behind production inasmuch as crude rubber imports into  the United States for the .year ft-  mounfed to 21)0,97 0 tons. A very  large portion of all the rubber products goes into tires, Miller tire officials estimate.  Since the world's output in 1922  was 368,500 tons, it will be seen'that  production was considerably ahead  of demand even though the restrictive measures had been put into effect to a certain extent last year.

'New Information  Bureau Opened  No longer will tourists have to  depend on unreliable American-  sources for information on Canadian  highways regulations and accommodations when crossing the boundary  at Blaine.  A permanent information office  in charge of a uniformed attendant  was opened May 1 by the British Columbia Automobile Association. The  location is directly opposite the Canada customs office, on the west side  of the highway about 50 yards north  of  the  international  line.  Tourists entering Canada for tne  first time have long complained of  the lack of reliable information to  be obtained at Blaine. Road conditions during past years' have been  such .as to discourage all but the  venturous, to attempt'the .unchartered drive to New Westminster.  That is all changed now. J. R.  Sigmore, manager of the B. C. Auto  mobile Association, has arranged for  the reception of the heavy tourist  traffic anticipated this' season. Strip  maps will be supplied, giving full  da I a on the stato of the roads, loca-  liou of camp sites, official hotels  and garages, nearest service stations, golf courses', etc. In addition,  emergency cars will he placed on patrol of the highway. Each car will be  in charge of a competent auto mechanic who will be available for  overcoming emergencies such as ignition troubles, gasoline, oil supplies,  etc.  These services are als'o available  to members'of the British Columbia  Automobile association at all times  and there will he no charge made.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  Friday, May'lSth, 1923.  $a_  One of the tenets', .of , the newer  Canada is that both of������ihVdld parties are rotten, with little or no difference between them. Has it ever  occurred to those who place this in  the forefront of their political creed  that so It must always be, since both  appeal to precisely the same constituency, namely, the likes and  dislikes of the whole country Wo  would have said, with Tennyson,  ''the common sense of the whole  country," were it not for that phase  has come to mean more sense than  is at all common. As for partios being rotten-, it' is to be remembered  tha^a good, tree cannot bring forth  evil"fruit; neither can a corrupt tree  bring forth good fruit. If a government is rep resort lative. it will natur-  IlASPIiKUUIES  Where only one class of fruit for  gardens available on the prairies it  ,vould be well to, choose raspberries',  fhe raspberry is a native" and grows-  in all parts of the prairies. It is  found in .Uio sub-Arctic regions, up  where the tree growth is much stunted and where raspberry cairns' themselves attain a height of only about  twelve inches. Moreover, it is as  near to being a "sure thing" crop as  anything we have in the fruit line.  Raspberries do not always produce  heavily,- but. there is nearly every  year at least a fair supply of fruit.  Spring frosts may destroy the  blooms of apples, plums, currants,  gooseberries',       and       June-bearing  . nflCT  and  ing to cold "weather and lack of rain.

If parliament 'i  resolves itself into   two   parties,   as  it must, these parties must fiddle to  the same total 'crowd. If one fiddler's  jazz'takes with' the crowd the other  fiddler will digress-in to jazz, there is  in some minds a cure for this evil ih  groups government*.  Instead  of every  mad for himself, as we used to say  at school when' it was,not convenient  to toss up for si&'e's, they would have  in parliament every, group for itself.  The. resultant of,ail the selfishness  working 'at -nigh '���������'"��������� pressure    is    apparently to give   good    government.  The: resultant-'of -all  the -: colors  in  the prism'-is-said in the school books  to   -make". a1   white      light.

An; unusual   incident  becurred   ih  connection" witli the - Convocation of  the Presbyterian College. Three candidates -for the-ministry declined to  affirm" "their acceptance of    the Old  and-'New Testaments as' being "the  Word  of God,"  though  they agreed  that-they could subscribe to a statement in the : rule's of    the ���������" Scottish  church'"that the Old and New Testament contain    the word of    God."  That ;^ne incident was rather typical  than "'''exceptional-'- was    indicated" by  Dr. Dickie, who stated that the committee  appointed  to  examine  candidates for, ordination  had  for    some  years back'been placed'in a difficult  position, in that a number of those  applying for licences were not in en-  tire-'.-agreement with the legal standards of the church.    It was evident  that'1 the young men    possessed  the  sympathy of the Montreal Presbytery  the Vpastor of one important church  goirfg so far as to state that if the  action of the Presbytery in licensing  the -candidates' were not endorsed by  the <.Generat Assembly he,    for one,  wouid resign his charge.    We do inquire what-tli&  -standards    may be  that" were contravened by the refu'  sal. ." It must be thirty or forty years  since' a sermon preached in Toronto  by the Rev. D. J. MacDonell, and reported ih the Witness", caused a heated debate" ori the same question resulting in the    decision    that    tliere  was ['nothing'in    . the, standards to  condemn'Mr. MacDonell.

With this occurrence, might  be bracketed,-.,as.   indicative    of, .   a  chari'ge from. the.traditional attitude  the address.of^'Principal    Smyth of  the Wesleyan College on "the Faith  of the Modern Man."      Dr.    Smyth  expressed < his    conviction    that    the  time" had come for ah interpretation  of rfeliglon more in    harmony    with  modern knowledge    and    that    this  could be attained      without    losing  anything vital.    Various schools differed in details, but all were agreed  that it wasno longer possible      to  appeal tb church or    creed or    any  external authority as final    and    as  precluding    further      invfcstlgation.  "The1 Bible,"'said Dr. Smyth, "claims  no exemption not accorded to other  documents of ancient times, it needs"  no exemption.

Raspberries have a fairly good  root, system and are unlikely to suffer during a spell of dry weather to  the same extent as strawberries.  They also have the advantage of  bearing several successive heavy  crops of'large-sized berries without  renewal of the plantation. They respond to good culture careful, timely  pruning, and to applications of fertilizer:'  . A raspberry is the most, popular  of all bush fruits. It is used for jellies, jams, preserves, dessert with  sugar and cream, is canned, and is  eaten fresh out of 'the han'd; it is air  so' -used as a flavoring for mild fruits  such as Saskatoon berriqs, and is  the foundation of a popular hot-weather  drink,  "raspberry vinegar."  A raspberry plantation may be  easily established. The rooted suckers are sold -at moderate prices by  nurserymen. The roots may be planted in .spring or autumn, but early  spring planting is generally most satisfactory.  Red Raspberries, are available in  many varieties. Black raspberries  are not so hardy, and require some  winter protection. The Older and  Hilbbrri are moderately hardy. The  purple raspberries, such as the Columbian, are grown 'on a small scale,  as' are also the yellow varieties such  as Golden Queen.  Among the vrieties of red raspberries grown on the experimental station, at -Morden, the Newman, the  Latham, the King, arid the Herbert  are in greatest demand. The Ohta ,is  a hardy variety and has a light  colored berry of medium to large  and the color of fruit is somewhat  uneven. The Newman and the Latham are large, dark red berries, firm,  of good quality and of rather late  season. The Newman has' sturdy but  shorter canes than the Latham. The  King is a good cropper, doing well  on heavy soils, and the canes are  hardy. The Herbert is a heavy  yieider with hardy canes..Its large  fruit is especially suited to the  home market.

Conditions generally  favourable in Prairie Provinces,  where seeding will be general in a  few days. Slightly smaller wheat  acreage expected. Seeding has just  begun in Ontario, not yet started in  Quebec or Maritime Provinces. Fall  wheat wintered  well.  Prairie Provinces  Seeding is general, except in Re-  gina and Winnipeg districts, where  preparations are delayed with floods.  Ih the Province of Alberta, however,  there was an extremely dry month,  but this' was followed by a general  rain throughout the Province during  the last week of April, which has  been very beneficial and improves  prospects. The reports', from .the  various districts are as follows:_������������������  Edmonton , District: Wheat seeding will be completed in a few days.  Acreage about same as last year, but  for-coarser grains is slightly reduced;  Calgary District: Seeding general  acreage less than last year: .Letfi-  bridge District: Sufficient rain for  germination fell during the week,  but there is little reserve moisture in  soil. Acreage is less than last year;  grass pasture backward. Saskatoon District: Wheat seeding reported 30 to 50 per cent., but in  Eastern portion of district just commencing to be general. Acreage a-  bout same as last year. Regina District: Seeding operations not yet  general owing to wet lands; acreage may be slightly less', than last  year, conditions favourable., Winnipeg District: Seeding delayed by late  Spring and floods, but will be general by end of week. Wheat acreage  will probably be under average with  increased acreage of coarse grains.

The road, which was' built by the engineering division  of the    Canadian  National  Parks-Branch, is important  because it is the first highway across  the central Rockies anil also because  it forms the last link  in  the    great,  (i,000-mile Circle Tour, a system 'of  motor highways which extends down  the Pacific    coast ' from    Seattle to  southern   California, .  returning   via  the  Grand   Canyon,   the Yellowstone'  and the United States Glacier nation  al parks to the Canadian  boundary.  The  booklet does  not profess  to  be  a complete guide but    tells in an interesting way the story    of the construction of the road    and'   gives    a  brief description of some of the attractive points along the route.  The Vermilion Pass  Tt  is   interesting  to, note  that  so  long  ago   as   1858,   Sir  James   Hector, ��������� geologist to the Palliser    Expedition, ,who  explored   this  region  in  connection   with   his   search   for     a  suitable pass.for a railway, pointed  out the feasibilty of the route for a  road.      "Of    the    passes    traversed  by  our ; expedition,"   he wrote,   "the  most favourable  and  inexpensive  to  render available for wheeled conveyance would be  , Vermillion pass,  as  the most gradual of them all." After  Hector's  discovery of the    Kickirig-  horse pass and its' selection for the.  route of  the . Canadian Pacific, Railway, tlie Vermilion    pass was practically forgotten, but when tlie project of a transmohtane motor highway was formulated in 1912 the low  elevation  of  this  pass  at  once   suggested it as a desirable route for a  motor highway  which  would ar.  the  same time .open up the glories of the  central Rockies' and give access    to  Banff   National   Park.  Every Mile a Surprise  The booklet  is    illustrated    with  32   halftone  engravings  which  indicate the beauty    and    grandeu-'    of  the scenery through wliich tlie"  road  passes.    One of tlie most striking of  these is' Sinclair  canyon,  where  the  road has been blasted through tow-'  ering walls of   red   rock.     "To one  who lias not known them," say������ the  writer,  "it is impossible to describe  the delights of the new motor highway.  From  the eastern  wall  of  the  Rockies to the Columbia valley Is a  little   more   than     125   miles    and  every mile is a surprise and an enchantment.      It    does    not    matter  whether  the  motorist  enter - by   the  eastern  or  western  gateway,  he     is  swept at once    into    an    enchanted  world.    The    magnificence    of    the  mountain   ranges     and   the   immensity of the scale on which they hav*  been laid out, refuse to- be put into  words.    Something is    left    our.    in  every   picture   or   photograph.   Only  the eye can    gather    the    sense    of  height and    vastness,    the    infinite  serenity  and  majesty,    which  thrill  the beholder on his first glimpse of  the   Canadian  Rockies.. The   endless  succession of ranges billowing o'f to  the distance as far as the    eye    can  see,  the countless variety of forms j-  peak after peak rearing, its glorious  bulk more than a    mile,up into the  radiant blue,    the    shifting    play of  light and   shade,  the    indescribable  varition of colour, yea, the yery opulence of the sunshine    itself are    a  joy and a revelation."

"The sales tax  was the bugbear of the retail business, a source of endless and irritating trouble,, and everyone is glad to  be rid of the annoyance of it.

His mann'.r  was alert and apparently carefree.  A hint of a smile passed over his  face when he was told to stand  while the charge of murder was read  to him by the clerk of tlie court. He  is a clean-cut appearing lad. In reply  to the charge read by the clerk of  the court he spoke clearly and with  no suggestion of nervousness or hesitancy, "Not guilty."  The most sensational testimony  of the day was given by Thomas  Herbert Burton, whose 15th birthday  was but a few weeks ago, and who  testified to being Smith's companion when Lorenz was shot and killed. He told of events which had occurred leading up to the killing of  the young bank clerk. He spoke of  robberies and plans of robberies  and hold-ups as casually as if he  were telling about the humdrum oc-  der was withdrawn.  Sentences were deferred.
