Mr. Dunn, D.  D. preached an impressive sermon at  11 a. m., and Rev. Mr. Reid conducted the service at 7:30 and in his  sermon gave six good reasons for  thankfulness:  1. Our open Bible and the brave  men who fought and died for this,  etc.  2. . The Sabbath Day and the work  done to preserve it, etc.  3. Free Institutions.

For the unity of Empire in  our present .struggle for honor and  freedom.  6.

Particularly in this province of British Columbia, where  the clearing' of' land :is such a hea'vy task, should-  there be  money  for the  farmer  to  get'to  assist  him  in  his important  work.

It is to  much  of a  ���������herculean' task to undertake "permanently without  ��������� capital,   for   most   people.    We   often   accuse ,'the  'farmer  of "riot"being  a  business man.    How   can  he'make  a-success of  agriculture���������and  if not a  "success' then ;he :is-no 'business  man���������unless -he  has'the capital "to put his land in shape for-the  abundant growth of' the 'fertile' land of this province.  It 'is refreshing'-however to hear so much  dis-  "cu'ssion about'assistance to"'the framer. It cannot  all end in taik.    Something must: come of it.    The  idea appears" to have taken strong hold of at'least  one member of the'prov'in'cial government,-and it  would not'be-at all "surprising "to see the'present  'government1 at the next election  produce a  land  "policy for the province on as large'a'scale as its fbr-  v"meV"railway policy.  'It is high'time too. A commission,"' appointed' by- the"government,- has sent a  .  -published report throughout'the province, p'resum-  ���������;'ably, 'with the-idea-of  having  it'discussed,   but  that report  has not  yet  been as" enthusiastically  - received-as perhaps "it'should be.    There must be  a reason.    It may be  that it states' a condition  'air know but without the proper "remedy. But the  "member'for Yale district before the board if trade  at  New   Westminster   seems ' to ' have   solved "the  ' problem,  when he states 'that agriculture is crip-  : pled by the lack of a-proper'system of" farm cred-  ''its arid by-the'absence of 'co-operative methods of  'production and marke'ting|    The Victoria Colonist  in   discussing  farm   credits  recently   says:    "Why  ��������� should the' man, wlio buys the hoe to use in raising potatoes, riot "have'as much right to financial    *,  "assistances? the man vwho makes the hoe *  * *  *  ' Why is the man :who, buys 'and 'sells- produce, in  better '"standing  with   the ' wise   riien 'of ' Finance  than  the   man   who   raises   the   produce?"   AVith    *.  the head of the' Commission enthusiastic and the    .  government  organ���������the     Colonist-V-writirig    'long    ���������  editorials, there ought to  be something doing in  the near "future.  But can you dear reader, conceive why Mr.  /"Jca. Lucas, M. L. A., lor Yale, should address  a bunch of business men wlio "are members of the  board of trade of New AVestmihster on farm credits  and marketing produce? Why not address the  farmers? What "do "city merchants know about  farming anyhow? A little b'f the fertile soil of  some of "tlie productive valleys of the province on  'the dry "goods "or1 in tlie sugar of the ./merchant  would spoil the sale of" the "article. It's the'"same  old story, ��������� going the wrong way about it. One  wohld" never think of addressing a farmers' meeting on how to'measure five yards of baby ribbon  -so as to bring the price of six; or mix a blend  of cheap teas that will produce'a 'cup -of* tea  equal' to tlie best Ceylon.  However it is 'gratifying' to know that one of  the "members of our "government believes he has a  mission that if carried into effect will assist the  farmer. As -we venture to say that 'if the farmer had'the same easy access to a system of credit  suited to the 'nature of his business,'as the'merchant has, tlie tilling of the soil,'would be one of  the most successful businesses of tlie province.  Did you ever notice that the farmer who has a  little capital���������which makes business ability-  combined :with !his' energy, is always'a success?  There is another system of credits that the  government should take up on the same principles  and that is for the small manufacturer of'the  province Our; banking system, considered the  best in the world, does'not appear to suit the  small manufacturer.

The pace we set  is swift enough, and as friction creates, so too  it destroys. The friction of commerce-gnaws constantly ' at the, surface of the roads, and the, toll  must be levied to repair the' damage. Time, is  the consideration arid'wasted time is wasted money. 'Now is the time to see 'that the roads are  in good shape for the winter month's pleasure of  the farmers and others whod'rive over the roads.  1 Considerable hew road has been built in the  district and, now tho superintendent of roads for  the district says that repairs are all that will be  "done for the winter months. If the roads are  kept' in repair during the rainy season, it means  the saving of thousands'of 'dollars in the life of  the road.  WAR AND  THE 'ADVERTISER  The   Westminster   Gazette   has ��������� a  very   incisive  article   on "the subject  cf  advertising   during  the  war.     It   is   too   long   for   reproduction,   but   its  ��������� main   argument  is  well   worth   mentioning.       It  'speaks1'of the  ill  effect  produced  since  the  oul-  ��������� break ���������' of the war by a number of firms who have  ceased to advertise, thus dislocating the business  ���������machinery-of the' country,-"giving less work to the  -printer,  the" paper-maker, the "bill-poster," the advertising-agents,   increasing'-distress -and     unemployment.    Wiser "'firms'have  adopted  a  different  -policy, viz., to reach'out for new markets by additional   advertising.-      The 'Westminster   Gazette .  claims - that business houses whiv:ti have followed  this   policy ' are ��������� doing   their   part  to   reduce, the  inevitable harm - of ��������� war.    They are tlie only'ones  "who are living up to the motto, "Business as Usual" and'-they will come through the war strengthened arid with- enhanced reputation.    At no. time  ���������is-advertising more likely  to  produce permanent  : results.    New "needs ' are   being   revealed   by   the  war "'markets which have been closed to us are now  open; advertising is part of'the normal machinery  of - every  prosperous  business;   it" represents'the  cheapest,   the 'quickest "and     the    -most     certain  "means of acquiring new business.    Prosperity will  not come to the man who does nothing to evoke it  'but  to  him   who ''lets : the 'world know   he  is   in  business,  that he intends to 'remain  in  business,  and   that   those   who  'wish, to   "do   business   will  find him eager and willing in their ervice.    In an  editorial ��������� during 'last -week 'the -Victoria   Colonist  enforced this same view, and pointed to the fact  'it Sv'as' carrying   more- outside 'advertising   than  ever   before.    This shows that those in the  best  position to'judge know that there is business to  be done, it! also shows that they recognize advertising  as  the "legitimate   means r of ' getting  their  share.  According to the -above the merchants  of  this  town   are   diihg "tlie  Tight   thing.    You   will   see  ' the large'amount-of advertising that this paper'is  carrying at this 'time of'the war���������just tho same  as ever before.  Bread'cast'upon the"'waters'is'sel'dom buttered;  and' if it we're would- it" be'any more^'a'cceptable?  Live''according to the-size of your'pocket book  'and'"when hard times come' you will be happier,  Horace  Greely used to tell the young man to  '���������go "west:  now the Kaiser seems to have the same  idea' only -in'a more acute form of destroying all  'ahead of him as he goes west.  Things-are so quiet in Vancouver they say that  the "citizens 'would be' glad if' Joe Martin would  create an old time political sensation.  In  New  AVestminster ''tis  said   the   only   way  ���������some people can raise the dust would be to "get  busy with  the carpet beater.    Then some people  have not even'a carpet to beat.  'An honest man is'��������� wonting overtime  when he  cheats ! himself.  'The term "co-operation," as defined by the clasic Webster, signifies a  "working together for'a common aim  'or object," and when this objective  point is supplied in the words of our  motto, "For Home and-Country" we  cannot fail to see in the co-operative  Women's-Institute'a' broad channel  for social service in its truest sense.  This theory, lying as it usually does  dormant, in the minds .of all good'  Institute members,' is excellent! it is  however, a starting point, merely.  Without it there is no true 'co-operation; with i't there may be, provided  each individual Institute 'member  sets herself to task, bearing in mind  the aim rather'than the effort. Probably the bulk of'the real work will  devolves the executive, but the magic stimulii of interest and encourage  ment, these duties take the forms ol  pleasures.  Let us suppose an Institute has  become newly awakened to the benefits of co-operation; how shall it proceed to put its theories into practical  working form?  The first, stop will undoubtedly be  the arousing of mutual interest,���������Cor  we believe that'interest is,- truly, the  mainspring of every successful undertaking. To this end there are two  very good means: First, if at all possible, arrange for a visit with a nearby institute, and see what the power  of personal contact will accomplish;  if this is, for various 'reasons, out oT  the question, try, instead, the influence of the printed page. This latter method is to be strongly recommended in'any case. Have your s'ec-  rolarypropare a few short, spicy para  graphs alter each meeting;and almost,  invariably the news editor of the paper chosen, (which should bo one hav  ing a circulation among other towns  of your district, as well as your own)  will be glad fo give space to the'mat-  ter of such general interest as AVo-  men's Institute news cannot fail, of  being  To almost every member sooner or  later, comes the little trip tea'neighboring town;'why'not-ask her while  there,  to look up the officers of its  one of'its meetings? In this way may  the bond of interest be strengthened  on many sides.; 'Slie'-may also learn  their, methods of conducting a business meeting, see their 'demonstrators  conveniences, and'- catch 'their particular brand of.enthusiasm; while'it is  not unlikely that her own will also  pr.ove'contagious.  Perhaps the next step will.'be'-that  of exchanging yearly/semi-yearly or  quarterly programme's.' ideas have  long been labelled the world's most  marketable commodity, and the number' of good, usable ones to be gathered "'from even a few of these programme's is really surprising. - But  ideas are not the only gleanings possible; one institute, at least, goes  still farther, and' borrows the' originator of the idea,'as well.  Let us "make.believe" as the child-  / ren say, that the time has come for  the making up of the yearly program  The committe is assembled, racking  its brains for something that is new'  and sufficiently interesting to all of  the members; then presto! one of the  number produces half a dozen neat  little cards, and as many letters from  tho secretaries oi the Institutes-represented. The cards show last year's  or even older, programmes and the  letters specify which numbers proved  particularly good, as well as giving  names of demonstrators who would  probably be available for", exchange  work. Can wo not see the look of relief, and one hear another exclaim  "Why did we not think .of this or  that before?"  To work in many of those exchanges would not, of course, bo desirable  for one great benefit of the Women's  Institute is its'agency in bringing'to  light the.hidden talents;  but a few,  wisely chosen, should add "tone" to  any programme, and, at ��������� tho    same .  time, foster the neighborly spirit.  .

And surely the members living,in' the outlying districts  would appreciate a talk'from a city  member, oii the secrets of the up-to-  date gown, or, some equally relaxing  subject..  On the same general principle, an  exchange ol elocutionary or musical  talent might ho made when programs  for special entertainments are being  prepared. If is well, in requesting  these very convenient loans, to make  due provision for a returning of the  compliment should the, other Institute so desire. And, of course,- all expo nses will be paid out of the Institute funds.  Probably' the. most   venturesome  line of co-operation is that of establishing a AVomen's Institute Co-operative Exchange, formed by several Institutes combining with one situated  in a good merchantile centre, and. con  ducted by the usual co-operative basis, a percentage of the  profit being  necessarily set apart for those assuming the care involved.        This plan  woud allow of many women living in  sparsely settled districts    finding    a  market for their handiwork where un  usual articles would be in demand,  and bring current prices; while there  would  always .be  a' needy, sale  for  good home   cookery;    plain   sewing;  etc. Shipments might be-made by sec:  retaries once a week, in time for Saturday afternoon trade.   ���������  Where a AVomen's Institute Reading Room is kept up, the perfectly  good reading matter which has been  read and gone out of immediate use,  should be sent, before becoming entirely obsolete, to some smaller Institute which could not, unaided, carry  on  the good  work,  but"- which  pro-  or i-li of these villages saw the unnecessary suffering involved, and resolved that a measure at least, should be  eliminated.-   They   iirsi  secured   the  services of a consulting enginucr.wno  by pointing out the eastiest, and there  fore the cheapest, way of proceeding,  nunc than paid tor.his lather alarming fee     Ho located, the best site to  bo  had  about'midway   between, the  two towns;  made .an estimate of the  cost of'materials;  called in    tenders  fur labor contracts of piping the \va-   -  tors,, as well as for building the central  bath-house, about which    tents  might be pitched;   in fact, did evry-  thing except furnish the necessary ca-  pital.   , ,    ,     .  .'".  The women then-advertised a joint  picnic, getting-an excursion rate from  the railway company whoso trains ran  near the chosen spot.    No-pains were  spared to  make the day  a sucesss.  with the understanding      that      no  charge whatever would be collected  ��������� nor did they ask for subscriptions;  but at'the next meeting of the committee, no less than one-third of' the  sum necessary was reported as promised     AVith such a start, no-difficulty,-  was experienced in raising more than  the remaining Uyo,-thirds.        ',  Later'when the villages had grown  to the 'dignity of being called' towns  they jointly purchased an adjoining  site,  and formed a syndicate which  built a fashionable sanitarium, paying well for the  water  rights;   but  the little bathhouse where the suffering poor may find 'relief,' still stands,  a monument to a co-operative effort  of. two handfuls  of earnest, .tenderhearted women. ,-  .
