And in keeping with the steady  progress that lias marked the development of tbis section,, be it saiel that  e>ld Father Time never ushered in a  'j'.nj^^.eiir that promised half as well to  i/uaintaih the safe and sane expansion  V^iist-'kas invariably obtained from  y<teji* to year.  And in her.development Wynndel  takes pride that it has been in the  most desirable direction���������that of increased production in some of the  lines of life's necessities. And, let it  not be overlooked that this increased  output has taken place in about the  elryesb seasem Oreston Valley has eyer  experienced.  In'Wynndel's recognized staple pro-  el uct, strawberries, the increase is  most lemarkable.    Fer 1918 the final  ed ten acres near the Dixon place, and  with his two   boys is  getting it ready  for planting.    In the same locality Mr.  Moore, a brother of Mrs. S. Moon, has  taken ten acres, on which he bas erected a house and  has started  dealing  operations.      Fronting   cm   the   main  road near the school Messrs. Packman  aud Wall, who  came  here  from   Calgary,   Alta.,   haye    operations   under  way on a five-acre tract that will  beset out to berries.     Above the government road Mr. Beuadetti and   partner  of Coleman, Aita., have  been   operating since  early spring,   and   each  of  them will  have  about  an acre of berries   to crop  from  this season.    Their  holdings  are  in   the   neighborhood of  the  Ofner  rauch,   and   the   improvements they "-haye made  indicate that  they, mean/business  in   tlie  ranching  line.  &F'M*m.-k-S*-.Sa  an export of around 6500 crates.    As  yet the 1919  figures are not available,  '���������mt taking the Co-Operatiye shipments  as a basis and  allowing  for expansion  e>n   account  of   the  independent shipping  at the same ratio  aw last  year,  one will  not  be wide of  the  mark in  stating that from Wynndel  last year  almost   9000   crates   of    strawberries  were s hipped  to  the  prairie market,  while  the shipments  in  pails  to the  .him   factory at  Nelson   totals almost  ,1600���������as  compared with   less than 700  in 1918.    In passing it might be well .to  point ont that the increase  in the jam  factory shipments was  in  some measure  due   to a  temporary shortage  of  pickers, for- a  couple  of days  at  the  height of the season, which ne^cessitat-  e*tT leaving  berries on  the vines;until  In improved properties there have  been ft few changes. Tbe ranch e>f the  late Bob Dixem bas been purchased by  Mrs. Nathorst of Pine her Creek, Alta ,  who got possession early in tbe spring.  The ranch of the late Frank May is  now owned by Ma: Davis of Coleman,  Alta... who has the Sadler family permanently located on it. Tbe other  sale was under soldier settlement ans-  picesi Ram stud brothers disposing of  their ranch to Mr. Piggott���������a brother  of Mrs. Rosendale. The place shows a  decidedly improved appearance due to  tbe erection of a much more commodious residence on it.  In tbis same connection it is worth  mentioning that late in the year Mr.  Cory sub-divided a 110-acre stretch of  his holdings just north of Duck creek,  cutting it into ten-acre tracts, and already the greater part of it has been  sold���������some of it locally. Not only has  it been sold but at least one parcel bas  bean sold twice, Walter Cooper turning over bis ten-acre buy to E. Uri at  quite a worth-while advance on cost.  Industrially, too, Wynndel bas  made a notable stride forward, The  Winlaw   sawmill, which   has   been   in  L. R. Levesqne, Who is occupying  the Spencer Lewis ranch, was a Nelson visitor a few days last week.  Birth���������On January 2nd, to Mr. and  Mrs. Archie Keir, a son  (ten pounds).  Miss Jeanne and Mr. Frank Palmer  spent a few days of the new year  with friends in Spokane.  Mrs. Whitehead was a.lso a Spokane  visitor a few days last week.  Mrs. E. Cartwright and the two  children left at tire end of the year on  a couple of months' visit with friends  as far east as Hamilton and other Ontario points.  Another ten acres eif the Duperry  holdings passed into new hands last  month, the buyer being F. .1. Klingensmith, whos place it tie-joins, and who  has a small-crew busy at clearing and  fencing operations.  Clarence Maxwell, who  is undergo-  by friends who were out to spend a  night at cards and music���������and a most  enjoyable, time they had, indeed.  Whist was the order of the eyening  and the high scores were made by Mr.  and Mrs. Maxwell. Refreshments  were served and all present agreed  that the 1920 social season had gotten  off to a fine start.  Construction work on the new high  level bridge is expected to start any  day now, Engineer Ramsay being  here last week and securing tne packing shed on the M. Palmer ranch as  a dining haii for the crew oft men  Supt. Campbell will have at the work.  The cement pier on the left side of the  riyer is practically complete now.  -WSj-rmx Mm m. xo ddt. mm  S-.B a -saa &aa&t -  Intended for last week.  Miss Emma Butts of Gateway.

In raspberries the increase is not so  notable, though a nice gain is shown  the shipping of them rising from approximately 700 to about 800 crates for  the year just closed. In the tree fruits  the most marked increase is in plums,  which show a gain of almost 300 per  cent. Apples more than held their  own. thanks to a splendid showing em  the Ashley Cooper ranch, where the  gain more than olfset a general shrink  age due to tbe smaller si/.e fruit that  the dry year made inevitable on all  the ranches.  The vegetable crop was barely on a  par with other years, however, although shipping was done in some  quanfitv in almost, (-very line. The  Cn-Operative sluieiiii.-ni, may lie laki-n  as a havtiineter eif the- falling-eiff, which  was most noticeable in potatoes, very  fe*w of which haye been shipped; and  in tomatoes the slump is at least 100  per cent., the figures being 1*151 crates  iu 1918. ai* compared with just, over 000  in 1919.

At present the  equipment includes a circular saw, but  a band saw will be immediately installed* H-nd when run to capacity the mill  will turn out 75,000 feet a day. The  firm bas last season's cut of logs here  now, and a woods' crew taking out  ���������mother cut this winter. The mill is  expected to be running in full swing  by April.  The Wynndril box factory, under  Monrael Wigem's management, had the  biggest year in its history, the demand  feu-crates anel boxes being so heavy  that u, was necessary Lo import lumber to keep up with the demand. For  the year the output will be over the  100.000 mark, and preparations are  wi-ll under way for a greatly increased output in 1920.  In the mercantile life of the community a change is netted at the eme! of  the* year. E. Buttei Held, who opened  out in tho general store line about live  years ago, has just admitted his son,  Douglas, into partnership, and proposes tn led. him largely take charge eif  the business.

What is conceded to be the best  night's entertainment ever provided  in Kitchener was the card party and  dance given to their friends by Manager and Mrs. McGonegal of the Chester R.

Old Year and the New  When    the  great  guns    along  the  litical awakening among the people,  to which reference has been made,  is the outcome of a desire that Canada shall be made a better land. The  splendid efforts put forth by all people to assist in the work of the re-  establishment of returning, soldiers  in civil life, and the care which ha***  been given to the maimed and sick,  and the dependents of the fallen, is  an evidence of a sincere desire to  keep  faith.  The   truly   wonderful     response   to  the last  Victory   Loan  was  in  order  that  Canada as a nation might keep  faith and  "clean  up" its war obligations.    The re-awakening of the people   in   regrd   to   matters   of   cduea-  | tion, public health, community     service,   and   the   forward   movement   in  j the churches, and the earnest efforts  | being  exerted  in   many  quarters     to  I bring   about   a   better   understanding  , between   employers     and   employees,  I are all the  result  of an honest  con-  I viction    ihat    thc    Canadian    people  i must   keep   faith   with   their  glorious  ; and heroic dead.

Napanee,  Ont  Sheep and Goat Raising  Fact That Goats Are Considered Immune from Tuberculosis  The sheep and goat industry in  Canada continues to grow not only  on account of the money that is to  be made from mutton and wool, but  that the fact that goats are considered  immune from tuberculosis has been  a great factor in the encouragement  of milch goat raising in a number  of the provinces of Canada.  Goat herds are numerous in British  Columbia, where the milch goat industry is assuming fairly large proportions.  Aim* (In-n.

It has witnessed the drafting and acceptance  by most nations of a covenant of a  League of Nations for the preservation of peace once it is established;  it has seen incorporated in that covenant the new Magna Charta of  Labor. Thus has the foundation been  laid for better relationships, not only  between nations, but between two of  thc outstanding classes to. be found  in a nation, and which in the past  have been suspicious of and antagonistic towards each other.  The year also witnessed the crowning infamy of the German nation in  thc sinking of the surrendered German   fleet  at   Scapa   Flow.

Dominion  But it is only in steadfastly keeping the faith that this young, vigorous  and promising nation can become the  mighty influence for good in the  world that its present position, so  dearly won for it by the soldiers of  Canada, entitles it to wield. And to  become truly great and a power for  good among the nations, it is not sufficient that Canada should produce  great crops of wheat, develop great  herds of cattle and other livestock,  and enormously expand its export  trade throughout the world. These  are important and necessary, but it  is even more important that high  ideals should be cultivated, that education should be general, that the  moral life of our people be raised to  a higher plane, that the health and  physical standard of people be improved, that unity in purpose and national ideals  should prevail.

Filling His  pergola led off to a sunken garden  of Italian design. -As Ruggles drew  near, he saw coming toward him from  this pergola thc same white-clad figure which had some weeks previous  barred  his  approach.  "Now we'll see who's master here,"  said Ruggles to himself. "If that  fellow tries to turn me back this  time, he  loses  his job  tonight."  Leaning on his _stick with a set  face he waited the approach of thc  other. As the man drew, near Ruggles saw that he was of large stature  with a rather flaccid face and regular  features and a complexion the color  of cafe-au-lait. He was no longer  young, and his dark eyes as they fell  when she stopped and regarded him  with an expression on her flushed  face in which intense surprise was  mingled  with   strong  disapproval.  "Mercy!" said she, in her crisp but  low-pitched voice, "what arc you doing here. Mr. Rugglcs?"���������No salaams  from Agnes  Elliot.  "I'm waiting to call oh thc young  ladies," Ruggles answered, rather  shortly. He had already become  sufficiently accustomed to deference  that the curt, challenging tone annoyed him. "It seemcel to me about  time  that  we  got  acquainted."  "But you can't come in now," said  Miss   Elliot.    "It's  not  convenient."  "Oh, I guess if it*s convenient for  me, it'll have to be convenient for  thc rest of you'" Ruggles answered,  not disagreeably, but with a note of  finality. Miss Elliot was a very nice,  capable young woman, but, after all,  she was., merely the paid governess,  and Ruggles had no idea of having the  reins of authority snatched from his  hands.  Miss Elliot's gray eyes flashed, and  she repressed a strong inclination to  stamp her foot. The combative expression of her face would havc put  to flight the Ruggles of Paris, but  that shy and retiring individual was  gone forever.  "I must say I don't think it's very  considerate of you to try to make  your   first  call  in   my  absence,"  said  Complete Reports Submitted on Conditions in the Various Provinces  of the Dominion at Annual Meeting of the.Bank of Montreal  Will Be of Speesidl Interest to Mercantile and Farming Communities.  At the annual meeting of the Bank of Montreal complete reports were  submitted by the Superintendents of the Bank, dealing with trade and farming  conditions in the various provinces of the Dominion. These reports cover  the particular operations carried out in the various sections of the country,  and on this account become of very special interest to the mercantile and  farming communities desirous of keeping in touch with the important developments that are occurring throughout Canada. We quote from the different  reports as follows:���������  1  upon   Ruggles     were   lighted     by   a j sue.  ��������� BY ���������  HENRY C.

Ruggles,  signifying to Mustapha that he had  no need of his services, took a stout  cane and went out to limp about the  terrace and breathe the free air fanning down the Straits from the Black  Sea���������that dread tAixine of ihe -ancients which has probably been the  scene of more marine disasters than  any body of water of its size in the  whole   world.  It was quite a different Rugglcs  from the one who had sat there some  weeks before beneath the polonia  tree reading the "Songs Before Sunrise" to the dying Hamid Pasha. This  interview with the lawyer had given  hirn self-confidence, concrete proof as  it was that he and no other was master  of  thc   household.  In thc course of his painful promenade, he passed the private garden,  cut uau no vv'iSii to enter tnerc, as  thc spot was fraught with saddened  men,.e*>rio--'. Skirting its edge, with no  particular objective, he came presently to the head of the linden-shaded  avenue that hel to tlie harcmlik. He  pause.:..!  anel   drew     his   breath   deeply.

It was the usual Tur-  illikish salutation, but carried out to a  degree afforded only to a high personage. This performed, he stood  erect,  apparently  awaiting  orders.  "I've come to call on the ladies,"  Rugglcs said. "Suppose you go and  find  out  if  they  can   sec  me,"  The man smiled.apologetically and  shook his head. It was evident that  he did not understand English. Ruggles repeated his request in French,  and this time with immediate result,  lie eunuch saluted and hastened toward the house.

"Sarah," said he, "I- thought I'd  come down and get acquainted with  the   young   ladies,   if   they   don't   ob-  J"-1-'-  Sarah smiled. The Greek woman  had seen something of the world,  having been of Hamid Pasha's London household during his diplomatic  service there. During recent years  she had been duenna of the harcmlik, accompanying the inmates on  their frequent excursions, for it must  not bc supposed that even under the  old regime these ladies were in any  way prisoners, so far as. their goings  and comings were concerned. It  was required only (and that by thc  Sultan himself) that they veil thcir  faces and cloak their forms on going  abroad und be always under ri^id  chaperonagc.  Sarah smiled, but her intelligent  face showed not lhc slightest hint of  surprise or disapproval. On thc con-  trarv,   she   looked   rather   pleased.  "Yes, sir, thank you, sir," said she.  "The young ladies would be very  happy. If you do not mind waiting  a few minutes, sir. The young ladies arc just trying on their new  French gowns. Will you not rest  for a moment there on the bench  under thc pergola?" Her face, which  must have been striking1y handsome  in youth, became suddenly solicitous.  "You  must  not tiro  yourself,  sir."  As   she   .speike,     Rugglcs,   who  was  fariifg  the   charming  bungalow,     ob-  serveel   au   agitation   of   the  jalousies,  and  his ear caught such a medley  of  la-ipiiy  am-! stilled   chirpings   ami   twitterings      as  uir     pretty I might  come     from     a  nest  of     baby  their guar-  binls.    Sarah heard il also, but alTec-  Prairie Provinces  During part of the past season extensive areas in Saskatchewan and  Alberta experienced, in common with  the Northwestern States, severe  drotrght and loss of crops, but owing  to good yields in others areas and to  high prices, the value of grains raised exceeded that of the year 1915,  when the largest crops in the history  of the West was produced.  Failure of pasture and hay in certain districts caused anxiety to  ranchers,    and    while    autumn    rains  British Columbia  In the opening months of the year  the lumber trade was dull, but in  the spring a heavy demand arose in  the United States, and accumulated  stocks were disposed of -at rising  prices.

Hamid Pasha use to ask you for per-'  mission  to  come here?"  "Of course not. But that was very  different. Besides, we are busy trying on clothes and getting ready to  go away, and thc place is all littered  up with patterns and sewing machines and dressmakers and things."  "See here, Miss Elliot," said Ruggles pleasantly, "I've been up and  about for several days now, and you  haven't been near mc nor said a word  about my meeting the ladies. It's  been mighty tiresome and lonely for  me, hanging around here with nobody to talk to. I eat all by myself  and sit out on the terrace all by myself and limp around aii by myself,  and I've got enough of it. What's  the use of being the head of the  whole outfit if I've got to hobble  around here and talk to myself like  a lame parrot? Listen: I've come  down here to see the girls and I'm  going to see them. That's all there  is about it."  His clear blue eyes looked straight  into thc sn^r1-- *rrra",-/ einfs of the G'irl.  and for a moment there was a "very  tense little tug-of-war between the  two wills; hers strong with hot vitality and a natural gift of authority;  his quietly forceful with a natural  latent strength which had been for  many years dormant, but which was  now awakened by the stress of recent  months of stirring events and roused  to virile action by this newborn claim  upon  its  self-assertion.  As the two were locked in this silent struggle for moral ascendancy,  thc jalousies of the bungalow were  set to rustling, and there reached the  ears of both a stifled giggle, followed by a smothered sh-h and that peculiar sound common to all humanity which comes when a laugh is  checked in its exit by the mouth and  struggles to escape through thc nasal  passages. The color flamed into Miss  Elliot's face.  "Mr. Ruggles," said she, "please  go back to the house. Don't you  see that you arc putting me in a very  difficult position? How am I to have  any discipline if you interfere with  rny authority? You shall meet the  young ladies just as soon as we are  ready to receive you. Really, Mr.  Ruggles, you havc been guilty of a  serious breach ol etiquette in  coining  at prices adversely attacked by worse  conditions in the United States. The  high value of wool has encouraged  sheep ranchers to pay prevailing  prices- for winter feed and carry "oyer  Hocks. Heavy and profitable yields  from irrigated lands are giving a  new impetus to irrigation which already stabilizes the livestock iridus-  ttry in  Southern Alberta. *  Coai,~a most important natural asset of Alberta and Saskatchewan,  especially of the former, has not been  produced in quantity equal to demand, strikes and labor shortage  having  reduced the output.  Some progress has been made., in  carrying out an extensive plan to  develop new power at the Winnipeg  J.X.X ^ \x, X m       0.4JL.*XXXX LV-C t~4~Xm  There are many evidences of increase in the population. Immigration desirable in character, although  not yet large, shows a substantial  increase over last year (1918), while  the figures are small compared to  pre-war years.  Trade, wholesale and retail, has  been good. Manufacturers have operated their plants to capacity or  limit of labor, and have found a  ready market.  The past season witnessed fresh  activity in constructing branch railway lines, although all plans could  nof'be carried out owing to shortage  of labor.  The West on the whole has had a  prosperous year, exceptions being the  districts in which crops were lost  through drought.  The two visits of H.R.H. the  Prince of Wales were the happiest  and most important events in many  years.  Mining development throughout  the province has been retarded by  unsettled labor conditions and the  high cost of supplies, and the total  output for the year is not expected  to be as high as that cf 1918. Mining is being carried on in a practical  businesslike manner, and there is no  speculation  in mining stocks.  Grain crops" "were affected by  drought and were below the average.  Fruit and vegetables have been good  crops with prices ruling high. More  attention is being given to agriculture, and farmers- and growers generally havc  had  a  profitable   season.  Thc shipbuilding programme in  British Columbia is about finished,  and new contracts have not yet been  made, although negotiations are in  progress with that object in view.  The industry has been valuable to  the  coast  cities  in   British   Columbia  -1 : xi--     -x~~x      tU~e.r.      v'4.r.~c.

The Dominion Government have in  contemplation ji considerable expenditure for extension and improvements to  Vancouver harbor.  The population has increased, and  further immigration is expected  during thc coming year. ._..  Conditions throughout the province on the whole are better than  thcy have been for some years, and  prospects appear good for continued  business  activity  into  the  new  year.

"I will never  resort to patronage to retain office,  nor will I countenance anything that  might lengthen the life of the government, if it has to be done at the expense of the people."  The premier said his great aim was'  to give honest, efficient, straightforward government, "and if the people  are not satisfied with my policies and  my administration," he added, "I hope  they will dismiss me and I will return  to my farm at Crown Hill. "Caucus  government will be a thing of the  past." he declared: "because the U.F.  O. members are not servile, but men  who will think for themselves and  will not be whipped into line. He  thought the labor men also would be  independent, which would be a good  thing for the province."  The premier did not see why members of the legislature should be divided into opposition and government.  "We are going to be faced with a  little difficulty or at least the speaker  will have"\some trouble in deciding  who is to be the leader of His Majesty's loyal opposition," he said, and  the remark was greeted with laughter.  Thc premier announced that one  of the big ~ things which concerned  him at present was the educational  policy of the provinces.  Honest, progressive legislation was  the   object   of   the  new   government,  lie   COiiiiiiucu,   "but  iiOliiiiig   Oi   a.   fev- j  oiutionary nature would be required.  "We have good laws, but the .trouble  is   they   havc  not   been   enforced  in  the past," he added.  When a mother detects from the  writhings and fretting of a child that  worms are troubling it she can procure no better remedy than Miller's  Worm Powders, which are guaran-  ! teed to totally expel worms from the  system. They may cause vomiting,  but this need cause no anxiety, because it is but a manifestation of  their thorough work. No worms can  long exist where these powders are  used.   * '.rx        ~x  yuu licive- **  Jieart, it is  time to  watch your  stomach.
