E. S. Butterfield left on Friday to  spend a few days with friends at Balfour, returning on Monday, and reports a very pleasant time while away.  Tom anel Nels, Ramstad left, on j  Tuesday of last week for their home  in Norway, where they are going to  spend a holiday. They were wished a  hearty good-by and a safe journey by  all their friends here. If they return  to Canada they assure us that'they  will certainly come back to old Duck  Creek.  Olarance "Ogilivie !is again a resident at Wynndel, after quite an extended holiday at his home at Harrop.  Ed.

At the  Hist one���������Saturday  night���������two ques  tions of great importance were disens-  sed, with President Bathie presiding.  The second one was the annual meeting, on Tuesday night, at the school-  house.    President Bathie was again in  charge and there was a fair turnout of  the members.     The balance sheet was  read  by  H. Rosendale and  regularly  accepted.     It should  be pointed  out  that,the statement, shows' greatly increased  business over 1918���������as has always been the case for the last seven  years life of the association.     The following officers were elected for 1920:  President,   Jemn    Bathie   (re-elected);  Manager,   O.   J.   Wigen   (re-elected);  Directors, J. Wigen (re-elected), W. J.  Coeipev and F. Piggott.   B, Butterfield  proposed a yote of thanks to O.  J.  "Wigen feji* the able  manner in which  ho had handled the affairs   of the Association.    The   motion   was heartily  endorsed  by all present.    Mi-. Wigen  in replying said   he had neyer before  been  similarly favored,  and  that he  fully  appreciated  the kindly   expression  of   appreciation   of   his   efforts.  Some matters of interest to the growers were discussed before the meeting  adjourned���������about 10 p.m.  Local and Personal  Miies  ->.���������.    0<mt-T+-    Xx.^rx-r    f\wx    rt%V\������.xiaA*iv-xr  3%T      **���������������*-������*-"      +.*fAi-0---      ������-���������������*        JXx XXXX~. *js.m.x+dj  last from his trip to the coast during  which he purchased a couple of small  tracts nf land about ten miles from  VancouviT, and from present appearances will be meiving to the new home  before the end of the month.

Miss Amy Ebbutt. who has been a  visitor here with her mother for a  couple of weeks, returned to Lethbridge, Alta., on Saturday.  A branch of the G.W.V.A. , was  organized at Lister last week, with 40  members for a starter, and another 40  due  to join, up almost  immediately*  wThe Women's Institute ladies request those members who promised  viands for the banquet on Tuesday  night to deliver them at Speers' Hall  on Tuesday afternoon.  $560, which was made up of $172 cash  and $388 worth of merchandise, which  includes the institute safe. $300 of  the purchase price of the warehouse is  still owing the institute by the Fruit  Growers' Union. The big items of  expenditure was the $1000 voted the  Agricultural Association, $100 voted  to defray the cost of the Arrow Creek-  Creston Valley irrigation survey, and  $75 as secretary's salarv.  In a few remarks following his report Sacretary Lidgate gave some  figures covering previous years' business, pointing out that in 1913 the  institute started ont with a cwpital of  $86, and the business turnover for the  last full year of its existence was just  over $42,000. Had the goyernment in  creating farmers' institutes vested  them with authority to do business on  a share capital plan Mr. Lidgate  opined that the institute in Creston  would still have been doing business  at the old stand.  The meeting discussed  the matter  Sirtimr  of keeping up its affiliation with the  West Kootenay central institute, but  in view of an adverse report from delegate Constable on the usefulness of  the connection it was decided'to se%-er  relations for the present.  Already nine applications, with the  uecessary tuition fee, have been received and the holding* of the 1920 pruning  school is now assured. For the first  class there is still room for three more  candidates. It is expected that for  1920 the institute will continue to  handle powder, caps and fuses for the  members wishing these commodities,  but these are the only lines in which  merchandising will be undertaken.

Proved    Every    Day    That    Dr.  Hamilton's  Pills  Are _Just  Right for Woman's Ills  Little   wonder    woman  much from constipation.    She always  hesitates, continually puts off taking j  medicine.  Of course a woman's system is  delicate, is easily injured by drastic  purg2ti\cs. Bitter experience with  harsh medicines makes her cautious,  and to her great injury, chronic  sluggishness of the system is permitted.  Few pills are suited to the actual  needs of woman ��������� they are too  strong.  But there is a good woman's laxative, and it combines mildness with  thoroughness of activity���������it is known  to thc people of many nations as Dr.  Hamilton's Pills, which never gripe,  never cause nausea and are safe to  use no matter what the conditions of  strength or circumstances of health  may be. A naturalness and regularity  of the system, so important to every  woman, is quickly acquired by the  regular use of Dr. Hamiltons Pills.  As a health-bringer, as a tonic laxative, as an all-round ladies' medicine,  there  is  positively  nothing  so   effica  swered, and followed the Greek woman to the rose-covered veranda and  into the house.  The room into which he was ushered was precisely such as one might  find in the summer residence of some  rich  and traveled     Briton   of simple  but  aesthetic  taste;  such a room  as  one might find in any of the charming,  unpretentious  residences  on   the  Thames  between   Henley  and   Maidenhead.    The ceiling was higher, perhaps, and    richly    ornate    in    coffer-  work,   sunken   panels   of  carved  oak,  containing in their centres roses    or  pomegranates,  while  the  highly polished floor, of the same valuable Palestine oak, or "Abraham's oak," now  scarcely to be had, was strewn with  such rugs as are to be seen only in  museums and in     the houses  of  tbe  pretentiously  rich;  in  both  of  which  public institutions they are apt to be  bogus.     But the atmosphere of    the  room was  purely  modern, just  as  a  child  may be very young and     still  have   ancestors   ���������  as   most   children  have, even     though these    ancestors I  are,  at times, not worth the having.  Here,  however,     the  elders  were   in  sweet    sympathy with    their successors.    Nothing clashed.    Harmony of  proportion,     color and design  swam*  together with no more friction  than  fish in a pool.

"_  Ruggles's general idea of a Turkish (belong to any single school or period  harem was that of most people of the'  many times grandfather in heaven.  Furniture, which must have appeared  absurdly callow to the very ancient  rugs, and fragments of tapestry, were  supported by these latter as sweetly  as a great-grandfather might carry  his wide-eyed great-grandchild, ridiculously young, and finding infinity in  the flaming hues of a brightly colored  chrysanthemum.  It iooked aii right to Ruggles. He  gave Hamid Pasha credit for a lot of  taste. More than that, after the first  shock of disillusionment about the  divans and slaves and things, it occurred to him that perhaps he^ had  never quite thoroughly appreciated  Hamid Pasha. ihis was quite true.  He never had. It was not altogether  Ruggles's fault, however. He had  not had the time. If he had been  aiiowed another century or two this  fault might easily have been corrected.  The furniture of the room did not  half a head, stepped forward to matce  her curtsy. For an instant her great  ambcr-colorsd eyes looked straight  and fearlessly into those of Ruggles,  who thought that he had never seen  so magnificent a creature. There was  no humility in this girl's gaae, and no  antagonism. It was as straight and  unconsciously questioning as that of  a fearless child. Then the long lashes  swept down, and with a movement as  graceful as deep water running over  a dam she made her curtsy, straightened herself like a poplar after a gust  of wind, and stepped aside, still intently studying Rugglcs.  "Miss Alessandra."  The slim Roumclian girl made herf"  curtsy quickly, panting a little as she'  did so, then stepped back with a  stifled giggle that was the result of  nerves. Ruggles was smiling as he  made his bows. There was a red  spot in either of his pale cheeks. It  was like a happy dream of princesses  and things.  "Miss Rosa."  The little maiden from the Island  of Cyprus took a deep breath, grabbed her skirt on either side as if  clinging to a life-line, stepped forward, and paused. Ruggles, watching,  her curiously, saw her dark eyelashes  flutter like the wings of a butterfly  impaled on a pin. Her pupils dilated  and she swayed. Ruggles stepped for-  | ward quickly. He saw that the little  girl was almost overpowered by emotion.

This year  the value of the product will be much  greater, though at present no reliable  data thereon is available.  British Colubmia is considered to  be an ideal place for seed production,  and in all varieties the excellence of  the product grown there has been  demonstrated; the deniand from eastern points being especially keen.  Annual seed fairs have done much  towards arousing the interest of the  farmers of thc province.

The absolute amount of salt in the  lake probably does not vary appreciably and has not varied since it was  first seen by white men, but since the  amount of water varies with evaporation and precipitation, the relative  salinity increases as the level falls.

There were a few handsome Adam  chairs distributed with those of Louis  XV., Chippendale, and others, with a  Sheraton bookcase, all of these different pieces selected apparently for  their individual beauty, and thus  quite in harmony, as beautiful objects  are never discordant. The room was,  in fact, suggestive of its fair habitu-  ees. In one corner was a grand  piano and a harp, while on a divan  lay a mandolin and a guitar.  There was nobody present when  Ruggles entered, but from some distant part of thc house came the low  chatter of several voices, all apparently talking at once. He looked  about him with surprise and pleasure  at thc pretty, homelike atmosphere of  the place. Here, certainly, was no  suggestion of voluptuous sensuality;  no heavy, scented air, no slaves, no  scimitars, nothing but a wholesome  brightness and cheer. Through an  open window came tbe rollicking  song of a warbler, together with thc  odor of roses and jasmine.  From   behind   tlie   portieres   at  the  far  end  of  thc  room   there  came     a  rustic;   then   the   curtains   were   slid  smartly back with a clicking of gilded  rings, and  Miss  Elliot entered, at  the   head     of  a  charming     group  of  ctrls.     Ruggles   rose   to  his   feet  and  supporting   himself   with      his  i-.un.*.     He   was   scarcely   able   lo   believe his eyes.    Harem ladies?

An interesting case is reported from Calgary in  a letter from Creighton S. Thompson,  who says:  "Nothing too strong can be said  for Catarrhozone. I suffered four  years from asthma in a way that  would beggar description. I went  through everything that man could  suffer. I was told of Catarrhozone  by a clerk in Findiay's drug store and  purchased a~ dollar package. It was  worth hundreds to me in a week, and  I place a priceless value on the benefit I have since derived. I strongly  urge every sufferer to use Catarrhozone for Asthma. Bronchitis and Catarrh."  The one-dollar package lasts two  months; small size, 50c; sample size,  25c; all storekeepers and druggists,  or the Catarrhozone Co., Kingston,  Canada.  f  ��������� *~i*m<0*00~i*0tsiO**O*>\~**C'iOssi*.9*0l~s0Q*sv������si*itse4  Signs   Indicate   That   Land   Values  ������?;ii   t% ui.

This is a very satisfactory  production for a province where mining is still in Its infancy. Of this  amount, $1,000,000 has been spent in  construction of plants and refineries  and in development. The report further states that "the spectacular discoveries in The Pas district are very  gratifying, but the significant fact for  mining men, and one that will prove  I more profitable in the long run, is  | the close proximity of immense dykes  of low grade ore.

Realization of the Dreams of the Earliest Navigators of the Old  WITTj.   ..*   V  vvonu  Fifty ycars ago there began at Port  Said on thc shores of the Mediterranean Sea a five-day celebration to  commemorate one of the greatest of  engineering feats of all time ��������� the  completion of the Suez Canal. Thc  history of that undertaking: is tne  story of the realization of the dreams  of the earliest navigators of the Old  World. Ancient records tell of temporarily successful attempts to connect  the Mediterranean and the Red Seas  long before the time of Christ. But  time and desert .sands erased the  crude dredging of those days and left  for the moderns the task of providing  a permanent, direct water route from  the Atlantic to the. shore lands of the  far East.  i ������ ei ��������� V VS ��������� H I  ?X&#fiz*~i, Zh&ntty'*:  ^^���������*"'*'nK!ffi5HIIl"iS?

We  cleared  $122,  which was  turned  ; over to the agricultural association.  1     On fair day the  members    served  ij ! dinner and lunch, and in the evening  provided  a banquet for the board of  trade in connection with a visit from  the Nelson business men.    Also served  dinner the following day,  netting  $112.   The Institute gave the members  drop  to  a. porch and   thence  to  the  {���������street/ and away.  It is a most realestic scnce in which  Miss Holloway, as she has in other  serials, shows remarkable daring.  Reports submitted at the annual  meeting of the Creston Valley Women's   Institute  on  Friday  afternoon, * of the Nelson band their dinners free  along   with  a  general  review  of   tho  year's work, would indicate that 1S13  was  one  of  the  most useful   twelve  months of the organizations four years'  history.       In  addition to  the  regular  of charge on both days.  During the year we lost one of our  members, who left, six orphan children.

Mention is also due the ladies' good work in serving meals on  lair   day,   without   which   eating   accommodation many exhibtion visitors  would have had to go hungry for supper,  at least.    During the year, too,  the Institute did themselves proud in  giving a lawn party for the benefit of  the   agricultural   association   building  fund, at which $122 was netted and  turned over to the fall fair directors.  Another   bit  of   commendable   effort  was   the   establishment  of  a   lending  library under  the   direction of Mrs. J.  W. Hamilton, which now has over  200  books  on  its  shelves  for the use   of  members.

In  October  Dr.  Henderson gave a most interesting talk on  the care of children between two and  ten years of age.    Miss Hayes gave a  most instructive course of lectures on  dry cleaning, canning of meats    and  vegetables, which enabled us to enroll  twenty-one   new   members.     At    the  December meeting, to close the year,  six of our members gave us a most enjoyable musical programme.  Sleeveless Sweater  nitters  Attention of members of the Creston Valley Red Cross Society is called' to the following letter which has  just been received from the British  Columbia Branch secretary of the  Canadian Red Cross Society. It reads:  We are daily receiving a number  of requests from returned men in the  various Hospitals throughout the Province for sleeveless sweaters, and as  wo  have  none  on  hand  and   cannot  Mii-nnli r\ f-���������*���������; iH***, *-*.**-v* ixx ������rf������*������*p*P*irt-������^>-*-i4- -Till -t.

I do not know if your Branch has  disbanded,  but  even  if  so,    do  you  think you could get some of the ladies  to   knit   a   few   sleeveless   sweaters?  No doubt they feel they have already  done enough to this work, but I can  assure  you   the  need  is     still    very  great indeed, and unless we can get  some  help  from   our  workers  it  will  be  impossible  to send  the men    the  comforts they need, and they will perhaps feel the people are losing interest in them.  I would appreciate it very much if  you will take the matter up and let  me know if you  can assist us.    We  Vrill be pleased to supply the wool if  you have no funds on hand for   the  purpose, if you can arrange for    the  knitting.    The  men  in  the Hospitals  arc still paying the price of Victory,  and look to the Red Cross to continue  to  make their sufferings a little easier, and it is discouraging to us to feel  wc cannot send them what they are  really in need of.   We have endeavour-  ed to get. the sweaters knitted by machinery, but the mills are too busy to  take any more orders for some time.

Address: Cuticura,  Dept. fi, Boston, U. S. A."  Canada's Task in 1920  The world can get along without  many things which are, however, in  general use, but it cannot get along  without food, and particularly those  kinds of food which Canada is specially adapted to produce; namely,  wheat, meats, butter and cheese. The  world needs food today just as badly  as it did during thc stern days of war,  and Canada is pre-eminently in a position to supply that need. Hundreds  of thousands of people in Europe are  still existing on the ragged edge of  starvation, and owing to the ravages  of war thcy are not in a position to  produce at home the food thcy must  have in order to sustain life.  During the war, millions of people  in Europe lasted the quality of our  Canadian foodstuffs who had never  even seen them, and possibly had  never heard of them, before. Even  i������ they were not in the dire straits  in which they now find themselves  they would relish the obtaining of  our Canadian products in large quantities, and both as individuals and  governments the nations of Europe  are prepared to take all the food products of Canada which we can produce and thcy havc it in their power  to pay for.  Let it be repeated and emphasized  ���������the world needs food and Canada  is in a position to produce it and get  the  world's  best  price  for  it.  Under these circumstances, surely  the lesson for Canada, and thc people  ot Canada, is plain. It is to develop  the food producing capacity of this  Dominion to the highest degree.  During the war greater production  was urged and undertaken by our people as a work oi patriotism, as an cs-  Sff.tij.1   v.ar-v-Inniuir   work.       At   one  for us to meet for that freedom, and  it is as bad to be a slacker in peace  as in war. The national debt of Canada has increased enormously because  of the war, but if everyone gets busy  on production it will not be an intolerable burden.  As Dr. James W. Robertson recently said in an address at Winnipeg,  thc war has demonstrated to us the  winning power of a great idea, the  idea that our cause was a righteous  one and must succeed, so that thc  freedom of the world might be safeguarded. What is needed now, he  declared, is a great idea of thc obligation to supply the world with food  and thereby pay our debt, and that if  this idea could be properly spread  abroad, and took a hold of the people,  we would succeed.  To the call of patriotism there is  added, therforc, a sound business appeal to greater production. The man  who puts forth his energies in the  work of production will not only be  doing a patriotic work, and rendering  efficient service to Canada and to all  mankind, but he will add enormously  to the wealth and financial  strength  trains to allow the precious animal  private accommodation to the home  of the owner, Willis Sharpe Kilmer,  at Binghamton, N.Y. -  Five men attended the animal on  the trip, including a veterinary surgeon to prescribe a diet.

Prices may not, probably will not,  remain at their present abnormally  high level, but in view of the present  world shortage of food and enormous  demand from Europe, it will be a  long time, if ever, before prices will  drop to their pre-war level. Before  thc war farmers were not getting  what they earned, but in the future  they must secure such a return and  they can be assured of it this year  and in the immediate future at all  events.  The outlook for Canada is bright  if our people turn with a will and devote their energies to greater production. We have 6,000,000 more acres  of land ready for cultivation than before the war, our men are home again  we have learned new and better methods, our country and its national services escaped the destruction which  fell on other lands. All that is necessary is for our Governments and individual citizens to unite and co-operate in a great national effort of greater production.  Greater production in all useful  lines, and especially in food production would, therefore, seem to be the  one great task, thc oustanding duty,  thc splendid opportunity, before Canada in this new year of 1920. It is  an opportunity such as comes to few  nations, and oie which will not present itself ngain in all the fulness that  is before us now.  Greater production is not only patriotic; but, let it be*: repcalea, it *s a  Like a Tidal Wave  Heart Disease and Nerve  Troubles Sweep the Country  Probably at no period in the  world's history have heart and nerve  troubles been so prevalent as thcy  are today.  The heart can't stand the stress  and strain of this busy, bustling age,  and the care and worry, the anxiety  and activity of business life constitute  a serious "drain on the nervous system.  The business of this work-a-day  world goes with such a rush that the  stoutest hearts and strongest nerves  break down under the strain.  On the first approach of any breakdown of the system Miiburn's Heart  and Nerve Pills should be taken. The  reconstructive power of these pills on  the heart and nerve system is simply  marvellous.  Mr. W. A. Wright, Hopewell Ave.,  Ottawa, Ont., writes: "After suffering  for some time with my heart, I consulted a number of doctors, but got  no relief.    However, I read what Mil-  Companies Have Contracts for Half  a Million Pounds of  Whitefish  Planning to supply over one million pounds of whitefish during each  season, the two new fishing companies at Buffalo Lake, Alberta, the Alberta Fish Company of Edmonton  and the Big River Fish Company of  Saskatchewan, have already been actively engaged in fishing operations  since the season opened on December  1st. The first consignment of white-  fish to arrive from the scene of operations at Buffalo Lake has already  arrived in Edmonton, this being a  shipment sent out by the Alberta Fish  Company. This company began moving out the shipment on December 3,  or three days after the season opened. Already these two companies  have contracts for half a million  pounds of whitefish in Alberta and  Saskatchewan.  According to an official of one of  the new companies, there is a shortage of whitefish in thc smaller lakes  this season, and the demand for the  product is likely tc be heavy. The  first carload arriving is of the finest  quality and commercially establishes  the great value of Buffalo Lake as a  future source of whitefish supply.

George Russell, the Irish poet, declared: "There is nothing in the proposals calculated to produce reconciliation, and there is no reason why  the Sinn Fein should cease working  for the destruction of the British Empire. Under Lloyd George's proposals  Great Britain would retain complete  control over taxation, the trade policy  and economic development of Ireland, which means that Ireland would  be given no self-government but certain administrative powers."  William O'Brien, secretary of the  Irish Labor party and trades union  congress, said: "The plan Is unworthy of serious consideration  is manifestly for export only."  It  World's Crons  m  Sbow Big Shortage  Nearly Two Hundred Million Bushels  of Wheat Below Last  Liquor Agents Active  Manitoba    Towns    Want   to    Open  Places on the Saskatchewan  Border  Winnipeg.���������As a result of the rescinding of thc order-in-council the  offices of the local liquor license department are being besieged by persons desiring to know if thc opening  of Hquor warehouses in the city and  province is possible. Numerous requests from Saskatchewan have been  received by the department desiring  information regarding thc pcrmissa-  bility of establishing liquor warehouses in many of the border towns  for thc purpose of catering toward  the Saskatchewan  patrons.  Among the towns mentioned are  Rcston, Virden, Rivers, lilkhorn, Russell,  Binscarth and   Dauphin.  According to J. N. McLean, liquor  administrator, quoting from the Manitoba Temperance Act, as the opening  of bonded export liquor warehouses  must be confined to cities, these requests must all  meet with refusal.  Fatal Railway Accident in France  Treaty  Paris.���������It was pointed out that a  considerable obstacle to final ratification of the Versailles peace treaty  exists in the fact that the commission,  headed by General Lerond, is not yet  ready to meet and prepare for carrying out the terms of the treaty. There  has yet to be adjusted the matter of  the transportation of allied troops to  replace German forces in territory  subject to transfer of allegiance in  order to prevent trouble and preserve  order.  Arrangements to this end, it is anticipated, will take some time, and  the possibility of making the treaty  effective virtually at once depends  upon whether the allies will want to  Yellow Fever Wiii  Soon be Wiped Out  Chairman    of Commission Says    the  Disease Has  Been Eradicated  in  Parts  New   York.���������Yellow   fever   will  be  wiped off the earth within five ycars,  take any chances of leaving those ter-  it was asserted by Dr. T.

To Help Returned Men  Citizens' League of Winnipeg Asking  Employers to Give Work to  Veterans  Winnipeg.���������The Citizens' League is  out to help the war veterans to get  all the work there is available in this  city. They have sent out 1,200 questionnaires to the employers asking  where men can be employed. It is  asked that the employers state the  number of their employees, their classification and the total of returned  soldiers now engaged. The future  possibility of employment is solicited  for the next four months, as well as  the likelihood of preference being  given to qualified veterans.  A reply is also requested from the  firms as to whether they are willing  to replace married women whose husbands arc earning money, or independent single girls with good homes,  by returned soldiers with dependents.  Thc Army and Navy Veterans are  also in the effort to get the returned  men work and will start a personal  canvass of business houses with this  end in view, on January 5.

During the  same period the villages have increased from 63 to 317; tpwns from 16 to  75; cities from 3 to 7, and school  districts from 896 to 4,145.  Further growth is predicted by the  Hon. Geo. Langley, minister of municipal affairs, who states "the development in municipal work and municipal responsibility is the logical result of the rapid growth and expansion of the province, and must continue so long as our population increases and ucw problems arise."  WuFaaft Steeplejack  Mrs. Golda WeSella, said to be the  world's only woman steeplejack, is  painting the 195-foot steeple of an  Oakland, Cal., church. Mrs. WeSella's  husband is a steeplejack. Two years  ago he went into the army, and during his service overseas the fair successor to his business kept on climbing her way into wealth, and, on his  return, a short time ago, the pair entered a business partnership. Attired  in overalls, and with the aid of ropes  and tackle that go with the trade, the  two climb steeples together, make repairs or paint, and have bought a  little home out of the proceeds.

"But this." he said, "has not affected the determination of British ship~  owners to maintain their position, nor  has it broken the sea-going spirit of  the British race. Given fair play and  freedom from Government interference and control the British merchant  marine will come out on top again."  A Happy Family  ** BY DR. S. C. BOWERS.

M. Humphrey  of Malakwa, third vice-president  and organizer of"tbe United Farmers of B.C.  W. V. Jackson, who was appointed temporary chairman at the  meeting on Tuesday nighc, occupied the chair, while J. A. Lidgate  acted as secretary pro tern. The  chairman briefly explained the objects of the meeting and introduced  the speaker.  Mr. Humphrey,   after    pointing  out the   wonderful   possibilities  of  the Creston Valley, as he could see  it, spoke for nearly an hour and a  half on the past, present and future  of the farmers' movement, both in  the province and in the Dominion.  explaining   that   greater   progress  had not been made in B.C. owing  to the movement being started in  1917, since which time the farmers  have been too "busy   producing  to  Sfiend    any    time   on    organizing.

Seven  new locals formed in the northern  Okanagan expect to have a membership of almost 400 at an early  date.     He   stated   that   while   the  membership   for   1919    was    only  about 2000 it was confidently  expected   that  it   would reach   3000  before   the   annual   convention   in  Victen-ia   on   Feb. 23rd   and   24th,  and that  before the year was out  the total  would  he anywhere from  6000 to 10,000 members.  During the  past two weeks Mr.  Humphrey  stated  that lie had organizations and  pointed out many  tilings whereby tbe farmer, through  organization,   could    improve    and  build up a lnni-i- democratic nation.  He mentioned, particularly, the im  portance of each district having its  own   organization   so as to cousti  tute a, medium through   which  farmers in membership may act  unit*  "dly.

Certain reforms are needed  in Canada, and both of the old par-  I ties being so closely wedded to the  ��������� financial interests it requires, an independent party, at this time, to  bring these about, and the feeling  all over Canada lias grown so  strong that just as sure as night  follows day the farmers' party, on  the New National Policy, will  be a deciding factor in the next  federal election.  Mr. Humphrey took up plank  by plank the farmers' platform,  dealing more particularly with the  tariff, the abolition of the senate,  direct taxes on the unimproved  value of all land, pointing out that  the people must he encouraged to  paint their buildings and improve  the appearance of their properties  so that strangers passing through  will have a good impression and  desire to return, for B.C. must realize that the tourist trade will  brings a very large amount of  money to the province.

In conclusion the speaker stated  that the arrangements re stumping  powder had been mado that was  slightly better than the. present  arrangements with the farmers'  institutes, and that in time they  hoped to do much better..

There is danger, however,  that this constant dwelling upon thc  need and duty of greater production  may cause a feeling of impatience and  resentment among those who are cn-  D-ao-ed   in   uroductive   work   and   who  i requirements, not to speak of the  j great continental European markets  which will probably be opened ttns  year. In 1920, he reports, Great Bri-1  tain will require two and a half bil-1  lion eggs, while the largest export  from the Dominion in any one year  only totalled forty-five million,  Thc embargo on Canadian wheat  shipments to the United States has  been raised by the Washington government, and one of the immediate  results is the sale of many millions of  bushels across the line by the Canada  Wheat Board, and thc raising of the  price to Canadian milters from $2.3U  to $2.80 a bushel, with corresponding  increases in the price of flour and of  bread to the Canadian people. But it  means a better price!* to the Canadian  wheat grower and gives increased  value to the wheat participation certificates held by him. It would likewise seem to foreshadow a good price]  for thc 1920 wheat crop, and no very J  rapid fall to pre-war prices. j  Canadian farmers have, there lore, a  market at home and abroad for all  thc  things   they  can  produce,  and at  the world's highest prices. Unlike  producers of some articles of commerce, thcy need entertain no fear of  their products being a drug ou the  market, or of lacing the necessity of!  selling ut slaughter or bargain coun- j  tcr prices. ,        j  There is another reason why maxi-!  mum food production- will bc good j  business    for Canadians, individually!  only |  Mrs. Etta Dorloai, of Ogdensbisrg, Wis., sayss  ** I s-affereci from female troubles "which caused piercing jpakis  like a knife through my bacls and side, I finally lost an my  strength so I had to go to bed.

What they are much  more concerned about is the inauguration of policies by the Federal Government which will have a practical  effect in increasing agricultural production by making it reasonably possible for the workers on thc land to  secure thc necessary machinery and  capital to enable them to increase  their operations.  Nevertheless, no intelligent farmer  will do otherwise than welcome information from authoritative sources  indicating the magnitude of the opportunity now open to farmers, livestock producers, and others engaged  in various branches of food production. Like all good business men, the  farmer must welcome information relative tc thc industry in which he is  engaged.  Since writing the article which appeared in this column last week, certain events havc transpired which  only add force to what was there stated. H-:nry B.

Canadians, of ncces  sity, must buy largely in the United  States. Wc buy far more from that  country than we sell to it. To the  extent that our exports to the United States fail to balance our imports  from that country wc must pay tn  good hard cash. Because of thc adverse balance of trade against us thc  effect has been for some time past  that it takes about $108.00 to $110.00  of Canadian money to pay for every  f   rrarvrta    v\ti i-r-li :\*zr.r,   hv  x     qVvjv.^     jt- ���������--- ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ������������������     ��������� r  United Slates. This  enormously increases the cost of everything American bought by a Canadian farmer. It increases the price  he pays for machinery, for oils, for  boots and shoes and clothing. By  increasing production of thosc things  from our farms, forests, fisheries and  mines which the United States requires, wc can increase our exports  and thus remove this handicap which  is now operating to thc disadvantage  of our people in the matter of their  purchases, much, the same as a very  substantial increase in the protective  customs tariff would operate.  These arc purely business and economic matters to bc taken into consideration, not only by farmers, but  by all producers in Canada in the  planning of Ihcir work for the ycai  upon which wc havc now entered.
