Until the cattle    embargo was' enforced   Canadians   enjoyed   tire   privilege of'shipping cattle to Great Bril-  ��������� ain.       Shipments     were    prohibited,  however, after the imposition  of the  embargo,   on   the     assumotion , that,  contagious     pleuro-pneumonia      had  been discovered  in a  consignment of  Canadian     cattle    landed    in ' Great  Britain.     At the time the    diagnosis  of the British  official    veterinarians  was stoutly denied by Canadians and  also by prominent British  Veterinar-  ;   ions, and the fact    that not a    single  case of contagious pleuro-pneumonia  has occurred in    Canad at. that time  ���������   or  later,  is an     indication     that the  diagnosis made by the official  veterinarians was    incorrect, and that    a  grave injustice was done to the cat-  '   tie breeders of Canada.  Canada,    at     the    present     time,  claims that her herds of cattle are as  free from disease as' are those of any  " other country in the world.  There is no record of an outbreak  of Foot-and-Mouth disease-within the  boundaries of Canada. The last appearance of l',6ot-nnd-MIoul.h disease  on Canadian shores occurred thirty-  seven years ago. One was"in a shipment of cattle arriving on May -t, 18-  8 4 at Point Levis Quarantine Station,  'Quebec, on tlie S. S'. Mississippi. Another consignment, arrived on .Mine  7, of the same year at the same station on the S.S. Oxenholme. These  are the last records' of Foot-and-  Mouth disease in Canada, and,'  . strangely enough, both consignments  came from Great Britain. The animals in the shipment above referred  to were all dealt with at Point Levis  Quarantine Station, and. as pointed  out above, the disease did not get a  footing in Canada.  Previous to 18 92 serious outbreaks  of contagious pleuro-pneumonia have  occurred in the United States.    Outbreaks   of     Foot-and-Mouth   disease  have also occurred in that country in  3870,.,   1884,  1902,     1908 and  1914,  and  not a single    case      of    either  disease has ever occurred in Canada  as  a. result  of these     American   outbreaks.    This is a proof that Canada  is -quite capable    of protecting her  boundary against contagious diseases  occurring in the   United States.    The  ���������   possibility   of contagious disease     of  animals reaching Great Britain  from  the  United   States    through     Canada  is extremely    remote.    In    the    first  place all animals are given a close inspection   when  crossing  into   Canada  by qualified representatives    of    the  Health of Animals Branch.    Supposing that it was    even    possible to es-'  cape detection at the boundary line,  the disease would then appear among  Canadian herds and be properly dealt  with by the    Field    Division of    the  Health of Animals Branch.  Then before the animals are placed on shipboard a last close examination is made, and in addition, there  is the length of time required from  point of origin to destination, which  would be sufficient under ordinary  conditions to cover the period of  . incubation of nearly all the contagious diseases that, we might fear, so  that from a practical standpoint, no  alarm need be manifested in,this regard.  While tlie measures adopted by  Canada for the protection of her  boundary have proven adequate in  the past, the Canadian Government is  quire willing to discuss any further  reasonable measures for its protection that may be suggested by the  British Government, in the event of  the  embargo being  lifted.  Canada   frequently    imports  pedigreed   cattle    from    Great    Britain,  where   "Foot-and-Mouth"   outbreaks  are not infrequent,  twenty-four outbreak's having occurred in Great Britain during    flic    year    1920,    These  cattle are imported under certain regulations    imposed   by the    Canadian  Government,  and   these   importations  have  been  made    without   -exposing  Canadian cattle to    infection,    ft*    it  is possible    for    Canada to    import  these breeding cattle    from    Britain  with safety it is    difficult for    Canadians to understand  why   it    should  be dangerous for store    cattle to  be  imported   into Great.     Britain     from  : the    countries to,   which    shipments  rhave been made and great    surprise  is expressed at the'    refusal of    the  Mother Country to grant a   , si miliar  privilege.  II is particularly' noted that; owing to'the exceptionally and. indeed  historically healthy condition of our  stock. Canadian cattle are admitted  to France without slaughter, and it  is quite apparent that France is,  quite satisfied with Canada's ability  to protect her herds.  It should be observed that, since  placing the embargo, over three million head of Canadian cattle have  been slaughtered under inspection  at British ports and -no case of  pleuro-pneumonia or Foot-and-  Mouth .disease.has been discovered.  The removal of the embargo would  ensure, as would no other steps  that could possibly be taken, a steadily increasing anil readily available  supply of beef from the Dominion  nearest her own shores. ' The importance of this to (he United Kingdom  the British Government 'must itself  determine. It will be recognized,  however,'(hat production is based on  confidence in the market, and to ob-  tain maximum production in Canada no' other measure will prove . of  equal or more permanent effect-. The  removal of the embargo with the consequent importation of Canadian cattle will provide more work for Brit.-  labour. <  some  Of  ill  body  idea to hve a "Subscribe for Your  Home Town Paper. Week." I smiled at the idea'at first, but'sonie way  the idea stuck, and then I started to  find out who originated the idea, but  the paper was lost  The publisher who thought of the  idea just let it go at that,' but I decided that it was so good that i,t  should not die, so at once asked all  the trade papers, printers' magazines and the' great printers' supply  houses what they thought of the  idea.  The Officers of the National Editorial Association wre written to,  and in fact some .two hundred letters were sent out.  The result was that everyone  wrote that the idea was just thf  thing,, and by common consent it  was decided that'the week of November 7 to 12. be adopted as "Subscribe to Your Home Town Paper  Week."    ���������   .

As a further guarantee of protecting Great Britain against disease, the  Canadian Government is willing to  have an export inspection made by  capable officers of all store cattle  shipped from her ports to Great. Britain, and to forward with each shipment a certificate showing that in  spection has been regularly made..  "Canadian store cattle can be ship-  It is a notable fact with all the  wonderful things that have been  written about the so-called "country new-spap'er" very few of them  realize all their possibilities, or what  an in flue: ie_ they are in the world.  It is now up to the newspapers of  the country, the home town papers,  to see the wonderful possibilities of  such a week, where in every locality  readers will be asked to subcribe  ior,the local weekly-, and in addition  to the home town paper where they  were born���������^it" they were not born  where they now live.

The home town paper is ever ready  to "boost" for the other fellow, to  .print, item after item about this or  that kind of a day or week���������the time  has come for it to boost and blow its  bugle for itself and all home town  papers', to put on a campaign of publicity, and take advantge of what  other papers 'will do.  In other words, throw its hat into  ther ing. and put. up a fight that will  get it somewhere instead of sitting  on the side lines and hollerin' for the  other fellow.  Here are some items that the country newspaper can use for the weeks  preceeding November 7 to 12. and  on the week itself, which as suggestions will lend themselves toward  writing other items along the same  line, or making display advertisements,  folders or circulars.    .  From the office of the National Ed  itorial   Association   will   undoubtedly  come   other  suggestions,   and     from  state press    associations    and    other  sources.    All  these will be a help���������  but it is the    publisher of the Jiornej  town    newspaper that    must do the;  most, must devote some of his space'  to his own  business���������and  push over  the "Subscribe for Your Home Town  Newspaper    Week,"  in a    way that ���������  will mean more subscribers, niore renewals, and last    but    not    least,    a  better     understanding of the    home  town  paper  itself. .. |  It is also a notable  few of the readers of  realize what a    loss it  I hem and  to the world  try'paper"-should cease to exist.  The large papers, with immense  circulations tell of "world happenings" as they understand them,'  and display heads telling of the .latest scandals,    prize    fights, and    the  Mi the spring time of tlie Federal  campaign, now just opening up, it '"s  both interesting and to a certain extent insfrufcive to compare the characteristics of the you'-.liI'uI triumvirate, who will figure as loaders of  three factions aspiring for,. political  supremacy in the forthcoming election. In the Hon. Arthur Meighen,  Hon. William Lyon McKenzie King  and Mr. Thomas Alexander Crerar,  there is represented three widely different types'of men, whose converging paths to political fame have been  as different\is their respective characteristics.  Those who expect to find in the  Hon. Mr. Meighen a platform entertainer of humorous elocutionary powers, will be doomed to disappointment, for humor is not chief among  his category of gifts by which he  holds his hearers.  His is rather that .power which  gives to the man.with an open mind  something to .think over after he has  passed on; a concentration'on facts  and figures, which'invariably bring  out his' strongest argumentative  points. It is by this way that he has  forced his way to the front ever since  making his maiden speech ,on the  occasion of the meeting of the eleventh parliament in 1909. j  Unlike Mr. Meighen, the Hon, W.  L. McKenzie King, leader of the-Lib-  eral party, entered the realm of pol--,  itics along easier by-ways made so  largely by the abiding faith in him  held by Sir. Wilfrid Laurier. The  career of Mr. King has' not been particularly brilliant or startling as to  effective results. He is decidedly  loquacious, but is inclined to prime  his vocabulary with such a range -of,  historic as to place it-beyond the comprehension of his audience , as a  j whole. He can hit hard when he  ���������wants to, and always has created ar  impression of honesty of purpose and  a sincere desire to win.  Mr,    Thomas    Alexander    Crerar  leader of the-National-   Progressives  which,    by way of sneaking,    is the  agrarian,  is somewhat of a   perplexing aspirant.    With but little parliamentary experience, having come into the House in- 1917, with the form  ing of    the    Union    government, In  came    fortified    with only his astut-  business qualifications  to stand  bin  instead.  For the best part of his life, Mr.  Crearer has been associated in thf  grain business and while of late ho  has developed as a more or less con-  fact that very  those papers  would be to  if the "coun-  fident public speaker, he is plainly  alive to his limitations in that respect. In fact it is not Mr. Crerar.  but Dr. Clark, who, on recent occasions, acts as the party mouthpiece.  But chief among his characteristics  there stands out a strong virtue in  his evident dislike for anj thine  which may deal in personalities and a  love of straight, clean and manly tactics. And so today, he finds himself leader of a strong factor whic'i  threatens the discontinuation of the  old line parties.���������-Salmon Arm Observer.

Following the address of welcome  and reply, Mrs. P. B. Madden, chairman of tlie convention, delivered her  opening address:and the formal business of the session was commenced,.  In the evening'.the Hon.- E. D. Barrow, addressed the members present  and was    followed by    Mrs.    F.   ' G.  Thomas' and  Miss M.  A.    McKenzie,  I who spoke on'child welfare and pub-  'lic health nursing.'  Mrs. F. B. Fadden was unanimously re-elected chairman of advisory  joard of the ' Lower Mainland  Women's Institutes at the Thursday  afternoon session. Mrs. Fadden, a  resident of Huntingdon, has held the  position as chairman of the hoard for  tlie past three years'.  Public  health,  child  welfare,  consolidated schools^ night classes' were  the principal    subjects in the reports  of the  Woinens  'Institutes d'seusBed  at Thurday morning's session.    The  consolidated school    question    carmi  up in several,of the reports.    It   was  mentioned     that-    the , consolidated  school at    Agassiz has been a    very  sucessful   undertaking   and /-hat     it  can be run at much less expense than  two or three separate schools.    Mrs.  V.  S.  McLachlan stated  that    some  of the institutes of the Interior   are  greatly interested in the question and  are working hard to secure consolidated schools in some of the Interior districts. , In districts where there  is no school nurse, the members - of  the institutes are doing good work' in  connection with  the schools.  An outstanding feature of the reports was the keen interest shown by  the institutes in providing playground equipment for schools, and  the emphasis laid on making the surrounding beautiful by the planting of '  t v,?S V 7S' 1Mi;S- U Brynn 0i' Varlous rel10,',s 01' Afferent local  Lynn Valley advised discussions on branches of Women's Institutes  topics ot the day, drill in parliamen- showed much activity and a> Treat  tary usage and suggested that Mrs. deal of work done in the wf-y of  r arsons book on parliamentary us-.flower shows, Red.Cross, community  age be used.

' A report on the legislative committee, of which Mrs. F. B. Fadden  is convener, read by Mrs. \V. V.  Davies, outlined all recent legislation passed in the last four years in  B. C. for the benefit of women    and  serving  children. Reference was made to th .  value of the mothers' pensions, minimum wage and.public health legislation.  An address on "The Sena to'1' was  given by Mr. F. B. Stacey, M. P. of  Chilliwack. He gave an account of  its formation, its' powers and objects.  He was requested to speak on this  subject as it is of special interest to  the members because of the f-.'ct that  the Federated Women's Institutes of  Canada at their annual session requested the appointment of a woman  senator. "A woman .should be there.  The family life of our conutry would  be satei, if there wa.i a woman in tlie  Senate, because she would have a say  in all that is conducive to improve a  home, educate the young and the development of community life," he  said.

Education pay the same amount  toward her salary as it pays' toward  the teachers, provided tho local  school-board will guarantee the remainder of her salary. She starts  at a salary of $12 5 per month.  An interesting address was given  by the Hon. Mr. Barrow, Minister of  Agriculture in which he assured the  delegates that the department were;  at the back of the Instittufes air!  would comply with their wishes just  as far as possible.  hot cocoa  or milk for  school  children,  making comforters    filled  with  wool Avh'ich were.sold to get  ,'i'unds,  fencing     school     grounds;    Institute  gardens,     demonst'-atibns     'making  icings and salads', sales of everything,  grown by Institute members, making  and keeping on hand layelts for em-  mergency heeds, trees and-plants for  outside  and    pictures-for inside    ot  school,   work  for  Memorial  hospital,  instituting  night     classes   in  technical and various other helpful branches of education of which four flftbs  of the teacher's salary is rjaid by the  Department of Education,'   securing  traveling libraries for public as well  as  Institute   members   use,  conduct-  ling public libraries, and many more  useful things each    needful in some  particular locality.

Head Office Huntingdon, C  1.2  PLATFORMS   OF THF   PAKTIKS  The Tariff Plank of the National,  Liberal and Conservative party is as  follows:  "A thorough revision of the tariff  with1 a view to the adoption of such  reasonable measures as are necessary��������� (A) to assist in providing adequate revenues: (B) to stabilize legitimate industries; (C) to encourage the establishment of new  industries essential to the economic  development of the nation; (D), to  develop to the fullest extent our natural resources; (10) to prevent tlie  abuse of the tariff for the exploitation of the consumer; (F) to safeguard the interests of the Canadian  people in the existing world struggle!  for commercial and industrial supremacy.  "The principle of trade preference  between the different members of the  Britannic Commonwealth should be  maintained and extended from time  . to time to such degree as may be  found practicable and consistent  with  Canada's interests."  The Tariff Plank of the Liberal  Party is a follows:  "That the best interests of Canada  demand that reduction of the burdens of    customs    taxation  be made  with a view to the accomplishing . of  two purposes of the highest importance: (I) Diminishing the very  high cost of living which presses so  severely on the masses of the people;  (2) Reducing the cost of tlie instruments of production in the industries  based on the natural, resources of the  Dominion, the vigorous development  of which is essential l.o the progress  and   prosperity "of our country.  "That to those ends, .whenI,, wheat  flour, and all products of wheat, the  principal article of food, farm implements and machinery, farm tractors, mining, flour and sawmill machinery and repair parts thereof,  rough and dressed lumber, gasoline,  illuminating, lubricating and fuel  oils, etc., nets, not twines and fishermen's equipment and fertilizers'  should be free from customs duty, as  well as the raw material entering into the same; that a revision downward should be made and substantial  reductions should be effected in the  duties' on wearing apparel and footwear, and on other articles of general consumption (other than luxuries)  as well as on the raw material enter-  in into the manufacture of the same;  that the British preference should be  increased 50 per cent, of the general   tariff.

Reciprocity Pact," which  the people of Canada defeated in the  general election of 1911, it is declared that "we. as Liberals, again place  on record our appreciation of the  object of the said agreement, and  our faith in the principles of friendly international relations underlying  it, and we express our earnest hope  that there will be a renewed manifestation by the two Governments' of a  desire to make some simil'iar arrangement."  The-Tariff Plank of the Farmers'  Party, as promulgated by the Canadian Council of Agriculture, calls for  the amending of the tariff laws as  follows:  (1.) By an immediate ari\l substantial all-round reduction of the customs tariff.  (2) By reducing the customs duty  on goods imported from Great Britain to one-half the rates charged under the general tariff and that further gradual uniform reductions be  made in the remaining tariff on British imports that will ensure complete  free trade between Great Britain and  Canada.  (3) That the Reciprocity Agreement of 1911 be accepted by the Parliament of Canada.  ' M) That all foodstuffs not included in the Reciprocity Agreement  be placed  on   the  free list.  ('>) That agricultural implements,  farm machinery, vehicles, fertilizers,  coal, lumber, cement, illuminating  fuel and lubricating oils be placed oi.  the free list, and that all raw materials and machinery used in their  manufacture also be placed on the  free list.  (G) That all tariff concessions  granted to.other.countries be immediately extended to Great Britain.  To Abbotsford.still takes the lead.

He says:  "There are many people who are  compelled to work for their daily  bread al some employment in which  they are not -particularly interested,  but after spending eight hours at  such an occupation the res: of the  day is free for the cultivation of  a hobby. ��������� Their hobby thus forms  the most important part of their life,  and many a person has swithched  around until they were earning their  daily bread by working at thoir hobby.  "Night schools have been sitisfac-  toryily conducted by the Iimihites  of Col wood, Duncan, Chemainus,  ivietchosin and Saanich; 240 students  having been enrolled in these centres. In the Province of British Columbia last winter there were 1 35 teachers and  8,201   students.  "Night schools have been called  the universities of the working people.
