As there has been no meeting in.  November a considerable budget of  eorresppndance had to be disposed of,  which included a letter from tbe com-  troller of water right stating that if  there was any more field work to do  on the Arrow Creek irrigation survey  he would have ib attended to at once  in order that there should be no delay  in that quarter in getting the complete  report on the project at the earliest  possible date.  it.oad superintendent Moore of Kasio  wrote stating that the request for a  sidewalk from the McCreath residence  to the fair grounds would be provided  for in next year's estimates, and hoped  C, B. Twigg, B.S. A., had been selected  as district agriculturist and field horticulturist for Creston and East Kootenay, and it is expectedTfch������.t he will be  along very shortly to assume his  duties here.  To prepare the annual export trade  statement a committee consisting" of  G. Johnson, A. K. Swanson and" J. W.  Hamilton was named, and they will  be instructed to haye the same completed for- inclusion in the president's  address to be delivered at the annual  meeting on January 13th.  A banquet will again be the feature  of the annual gathering. The spread  this year will be more or less informal  it is expected, and will be in charge of  a committee headed by B, R.

Skasing is in full swinh these nights  and the young folks are enjoying it to  the limit.        .  . Friday saw the return of Elias TJri,  who has been for some time at Arrow  Park.  Saturday's dance though sparsely  attended appears to have been a* success, and everyone enjoyed them-  selyes.  J. C. Butterfield and bride reached  here on Saturday from overseas, on a  visit to his parents.  A new blackboard has been installed  at the school this week.  Waliy Johnson created considerable  diversion one day this week by falling  into the channel up to his armpits and  having to run all the way home to  keep himself from freezing stiff. This  was doubly unfortunate as we are informed this was not his week for  washidg.  Miss BiittsrSeld has returned from  Wilmer, where she has been on a visit  to her* sister-in-law, Mrs. j.

Mr. H-asher paid a flying business  trip to Glenlilly the latter part of the  week, and speaks optimistically of  that section of B. C.  The second school has got started at  last, thanks to the woi-k of Mr. Lasher  in making temporary seats for it.  Miss Muriel Knott is in charge with  twenty-flye pupils to handle. The  opening of the new room cuts Miss  Corbett's group of scholars down to  25, which makes things ideal all getting  better attention and the teachers relieved of the heavy strain of handling  forty or more scholars.

This is prob-  5 lably the reason why indolent philosophers have been for so many centuries given to thc habit of decrying  wealth.  Ruggles was neither indolent nor  could he lay claim to being a philosopher, in spite of which, after reading  Hamid Pasha's last message and considering the responsibility which the  inheritance of his fortune enjoined,  he could have found it in his heart  to wish that hc had been endowed  with neither.

Won't you  sit down?"  The vigilant Mustapha supplied a  wicker chair abundantly upholstered  in cushions. Miss Elliot seated herself, then leaned forward and looked  at Rugglcs with bright animated eyes.  "Isn't it odd," she went on, "that  we two Americans should find ourselves out here in Constantinople in  such an  extraordinary position?"  "It sure is," Kuggies answered fervently. "I haven't quite got it  through my head yet. If I'd read such  a thing iu a story, I'd have thought  the author was batty, or else trying  to get a rise out of his readers. It  makes me sort of dizzy to think  about it."  "Then don't try to think about it  just yet," said Miss Elliot. "Now,  suppose you let me do the talking,  becaitse you're still pretty weak.

Tolmie, Canada's  new Minister of Agriculture, has  summed up the outstanding facts of  Canada's agricultural position in an  article appearing in the November  number of the Agricultural Gazette.  He presents statistics showing the!  growth of Canada'ss financial burden  during the past five years, and points  out means by which our national debt  will be reduced.    He says in part:  "I am  confident  that  this  Dominion, through the development of her  natural  resources, will  in  time  wipe  out her debt.    Forests, fisheries   and  mines all contribute their part of the  revenue, but by far  the greatest returns    will be derived    from agriculture, which    industry    we must continue in permanency and increase in  magnitude.   .   .    .   One of the greatest responsibilities that falls on either  the federal or provincial departments  of agriculture is the conservation of  the great wealth that lies in the virgin soil.    Innumerable considerations  arc involved tn this one problem, but J  the whole affair can be accomplished  if  we  engage  in  mixed   farming  with livestock as a basis.   This is the  fundamental principle underlying success in agriculture."  fir* fa S g���������  *������������������������������������������������ m~~- mr   a   b  a awsw* m~r ar-agg^i  ���������*������W     W    Wmmtt-m*,      B-������9^mil  I Gladly Tejl How���������FREE  iifsiii  -It Is a nejw way.

At any rate, in the week which  followed it rather looked as if he  might follow on the trail of his benefactor, of whom the discarded human  envelope was during this time quietly laid to rest in the cypress-shrouded cemetery at Eyub Sultan on the  hillside overlooking the tip of the  Golden Horn.  i5ihhks     to    SiCiitxUi care    anc& .tis  strong vitality,  Rugg!cs flung off his  fever in about ten days and was able  to leave his bed.   Pembroke had been  to see him several times, while    his  nurses     had  been   Mustapha     AH, a  Turkish     valet who had     been  long  years in the service of Hamid Pasha,  and an  elderly  Greek woman  of intelligence and kindly demeanor named  Sarah.     Both   spoke   English, and  Mustapha was particularly devoted to I  Ruggles, not only because of the dy-'  ing injunctions  of the master whom  he revered, but because he knew the  part which Ruggles had played in the  defense  of Hamid  Pasha, and which  had enabled the venerab'e man to die  peacefully   and   as   became   his   dignity instead of like a dog at the hands  of the detested Bulgarians.  But it had seemed to Ruggles that  during   his   fever   there   had   been   a  white-clad   figure   sometimes   passing  quietly in  and out of his room, with  sometimes  a whispered  word  to on*"*  or the other of his attendants.      He  had not noticed  it particularly,     hut  the   second  or  third  day  out of b'-d  as he was sitting by his open window,  lie saw what anpeared to he th- sa'^c  figure approaching thc housc by    thc  avenue   whieh   led   under   thc   lindens  to  thc-   tnys-erious  rose-eovereel  bungalow.    It disappeared under the log-  K*ia and a few moments later Mustapha  came quietly to Ruggles's elbow.  ''Tlie*-.

Rugglcs's    heart    gave    a    sudeWi  .��������� your  "That's sure the truth," Ruggles  agreed.  "Well, then, let me tell you all  about it. I had a long talk with the  lawyers. They came over yesterday,  but Lord Pembroke said that you  were not yet fit to see them. Hamid  Pasha has left you practically a third  of his estate, as Lord Pembroke has  already told you."

The phrase, "living on tick," dates  Remarkable Waterway Is the Grand  Canal of China  A  movement  is  on   foot  again   to  make navigable the longest canal in  the  world.    This   remarkable  waterway  is the  Grand     Canal  of  China,  which   reaches     from   Hangchow   to  Tientsin and has in its time been navigable   for   nearly   1,000   years.        Its  journey between  the cities  carries  it  across     two of thc  world's    largest  rivers, thc  Hwang and the Yangtze,  hut it is a long time since any junk  has been  able  to  go  by  canal  from  | city  to  city.    After about  130  miles  I north of    thc    Yangtze,    the    Grand  Canal has become choked with mud  and  abandoned.       Thc present plan,  which    involves    an    expenditure    of  about $7,000,000, will restore 100 miles  of the Grand Canal, and may reasonably be regarded as thc first step toward making thc waterway navigable  ovcr its entire length.  Fish hooks have been made on exactly the same design for two thousand years.

Discovered By!  Keenly Observant Persons  The problem of making agricultural superstitions into scientific data is  being studied by experts of the U.S.  Department oi Agriculture, who declare that many old maxims handed  down from father to son for gener-1  ations arc not really superstitions jit  all, but helpful information discovered by keenly observant persons.  They declare that there is a best  time for every farm and garden operation and that some tree or shrub  or plant indicates that time more accurately than all the scientific instru-  1 merits "can register it. It is those  signs which were noted by the pioneers who laid thc foundations of this  country and recorded in the simple  sayings handed down to posterity.  Soon thcy will bc dignified with the  scientific name of phenology," which  is the science of phenomena.  :..: Saskatchewan farmers are preparing to send representatives to the exhibit of the International Hay and  Grain Show, Chicago, this month.

They seldom recognize the fact that thin blood is thc  cause of indigestion, but it is. Thin  biooei, weak, watery blood, is one of  the most common causes of stomach  trouble. The glands that furnish the  i digestive fluids are diminished in  ; their activity, the stomach muscles  -lure weakened, and there is a loss of  ���������: nerve force. In this state nothing  f \ will more quickly restore appetite,  | digestion and a normal nutrition than  \ good, rich, red blood.  |i Dr. Williams' Pink Pills act di-  } rcctly on the blood, making it rich  *  and   red,   and   this   enriched   blood  About     four     years     ago     I     was  taken      terribly      bad      with      my  heart, nerves and fainting spells, and  was  down in    bed    for    about     six  months.    I doctored with two, different .doctors and seemed to get better,  although the^ fainting    spells    would  not leave me.   I would take such terrible   falls,  wherever  I  was,  that  it  was not safe to leave me at home at  any  time.    At last  I  decided to  resort  to proprietary    medicines    and  took  several    different     kinds,     but  seemed  to  receive  but little  benefit,  from them.       One day noticing  the  advertisement    of    Miiburn's    Heart!  and  Nerve Pills  I decided    to     try  them, and before I had taken  more  than two boxes I could see they were  helping me.

Kitchener Does It Right  When it comes to doing the right,  thing right hats must come off to  the people of Kitchener.

Discussing   tlie   new   order,   Capt.  Brown,   chairman   of   the   board,  among other things observed : "The  risk of handing over a valuable orchard to  an   inexperienced man is  too  great, both in the interests of  the man aud in the interests of the.  taxpayers   who   back   the  government's polic37.

It i.s not of much advantage to the  country that a comparatively inexperienced man should be placed on  the   same   farm   which   has   been  worked previously by an experienced man.    Indeed if such a policy is  allowed to continue there wiii be a  de,crease rather than.an increase in  production."

Primarily it is a duty they  owe to their country, but in a very  particular sense it is a duty they owe  to themselves.  The reference is to the selection of  municipal councils and school boards  for the coming year, the making of a  choice of some thousands of men or  women to whom is to be entrusted  the vitally important task of directing  municipal and school * administration  in a. territory many times thc size of  some  outstanding   European  nations.  The matters which in  the  coming  year will engage the attention and call  for action on the part of these local  representative bodies may not be very  spectacular or fill a large place in the  public eye or in the columns of the  newspapers, but to an even greater extent than many matters of national  and even international moment they  directly affect the well-being of the  people, and to the extent that these  purely local affairs are well managed,  the comfort, convenience and advancement of the people of a community are served. Furthermore,  they have a very direct bearing on  the burden of local taxation to be imposed.  Never, it~is  probably safe to say,  in the history of this country was it  a mailer of  greater concern  than it  is today    that    the keenest    interest  should be taken by all citizens in the  choice of the men and women selected by them to serve in a representative public capacity.   Western Canada  is by no means immune from the unrest  which  prevails     throughout the  world,  and which    is  turning    some  countries  and  old  established  conditions topsy-turvy.   Problems connected  with   labor,  education,  social  and  moral questions, trade and commerce,  finance  and   taxation���������all  are  in   thc  melting pot, and what will ultimately  evolve therefrom for the good or evil  of mankind depends to a very large  extent upon the interest displayed by  the average man and woman in public  affairs, the amount of studj- and consideration   they are prepared  to  give  to reachinc; a solution of these problems,   and  the  character  of   the  men  and women whom they elect to public  office to  deal  with them.  It   P     oi   the  guardr^gainst being swayed. by feelings of persona! friendship on the one  hand, or feelings of a personal dislike  on the other hand, in voting for candidates for public office. It is a time  when all old partizanship should be  buried and forgotten, when considerations of race, or creed, or personal  ambition should be ignored, and when  the test of a cool and mature judgment should be applied in the marking of a ballot.  Compared with most countries,  Canada has weathered the first full  year since the signing of thc armistice fairly successfully. Mistakes  have been made, plenty of them.  There have been unfortunate disturbances in industrial centres* Injustices  have existed, and yet remain to be  righted.

Insect  Collections Important Part oi  the Work of Students  The collecting and preserving of  insects and the mounting of insect  collections has become an important  part of the work of the students in  many of our schools. The teachers  who have specialized in agriculture  have learned something of the methods of collecting and preserving insects and are arousing the interest  of their pupils in this fascinating subject. In order to assist those desirous of securing accurate information  Entomological Circular No. 12, "Directions for Collecting and Preserving Insects" has been prepared by J.  H. McDunnough, M.A., Ph.D. This  circular may be obtained free upon  application to the Publications  Branch, Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa. It indicates concisely some  of the most essential features in connection with the collection of insects,  and aims to arouse an interest for  intelligent collecting of insects. Insects are very delicate creatures and  unless the greatest of care is observ  ed in both collecting, and packing for  shipment -an otherwise valuable collection may be rendered practically  worthless from both the aesthetic  and the  scientific  standpoint,  of Catarrhozone,  which acts on 'the  infected iinings of  thc nose and throat  just as an  ointment  would act on a cut *        -- -        ...  finger.
