Under the head of committee reports, Chairman Garland announced  that the finance committee was arranging for doings on Dominion Day  in order to raise funds to take care of  pressing   financial   obligations.     For  was decided to offer a Board of Trade  cup, which will be awarded in some  class and upon conditions which will  be drawn up by the agriculture committee. It was also decided to contribute a prize of $10 for the best collection of photographs of the district, the  lot to be no less than a dozen, of  which four are to be of the flats, and  the negatives of the first-prize winner  to be placed at the board's disposal.  As the proposed yisit of a delegation  of Vancouyer business men here in  July a motion was unanimously  adopted that they be inyited to make  a stop at Creston and a suitable reception be tendered them.

Peterman is "another who wiii  clean up a few acres this year, and has  just purchased a hand "&" stumping  machine.  School inspector F. G. Calvert of  Nelson made an official yisit to this  section the'fore part of the week, accompanied by R. S. Smith, investigating the recently-made request that a  school be established on this side of  tha Kootenay.  Mrs. Peterman and young son are  home fv~~s.

Everybody looks happy these days  with assurance from Victoria that the  new ferry is to be located at Goat  Riyer, and that we are to haye a  school by the time the September  teim opens. With these advantages  West Creston will shortly come into  its own.  Parties who have the opinion the  flats will not flood extensively this  year may be surprised to know that  the winter's snowfall at the head of  Corn Creek is reported to total almost  nine feet.

For roads and bridger Chairman  Swanson stated that iu an interview  with Engineer Ramsay on the occasion of his last visit here that official had promised to supply the committee with all possible information as  to 1020 public works operations in the  Valley as soon ae Mr. Ramsay had  been adyised by the department.  Communications were read on several matters including one from the  Windermere board of trade notifying  that the proposed East Kootenay  board's conference would likely be  held on May 28th and ^th, at Invermere. Messrs. Hayes and Constable,  were chosen as Creston's representatives at the gathering, and it is expected that if the trip *can be made by  -auto at that time #iat at least two  others will go along.'  C.P.R. Supt, Maharg  notified   that  he would possibly be paying Creston  an dfficial visit the latter part of the  week, and would like to meet a committee of the board, to   discuss  any  matters they would like to present.  The   ti asportation  committee, consisting of Messrs. Rodgers, Adlard and  R. B. Staples will interview Mr, Maharg, and among other things will ask  for more satisfactory auto loading and  unloading        equipment,      increased  freight    handling    facilities,     water  at the stockyard, a telegraph operator  to give a better commercial telegraph  service, and the putting of the station  on  town   time.   Just at present thc  C.P.R. contemplate having the station  open at 0.45 and closing at 6.45 town  time.    It is felt that when the fruit  shipping season is on the opening of  the   telegraph   office   particularly   at  about   10 in the morning  would   be  quite   disasterous, while in  the shipping   and    roceiyinp   of   freight   the  hours would  also be decidedly inconvenient.,  In connection   with  the fall fair it  r.fxxxr*X.X-       ������Xd~*.XX^ *X  MJstOB*  ixjrz^r.

Opinion on  this new turn to drainage effort, however, was quite divided and if. the end  the motion was defeated by a heavy  contrary yote, which fayored leaving  a decision in the case with the Reclamation committee.  - The latest arrival at Lister is Major  Booth, who hails from Cobble Hill,  Vancouyer Island.

For Good Films  For Canadians to Consider  The national debt of Canada has  now reached a figure of approximately  $3,000,000,000. This is the gross debt.  The net debt, that is after deduction  of assets has been made, is now  around $2,000,000,000. It must be  borne in mind, however, that many  Items included in thc statement of assets are not such in the recognized  commercial meaning of the term; in  fact, no inconsiderable portion of  what are termed assets are, for the  time being at least, more in the nature of liabilities. For example, Canada has some hundreds of millions of  dollars invested in the National Railways, and the latter are regarded aa.  an asset, but as a matter of fact and  common knowledge these railways  are not earning operating expenses,  not to mention interest on the capita! invested in them. Consequently,  in casting up the national balance  sheet, the people must be taxed to  meet both operating deficits and the  whole interest outlay on the money in-  ���������r^,-r **rs."^     *���������       ~+~m JL     -i-l-. ������-.     <~ ���������*-������-\<-**.1.-*r-*       In *-���������%----���������-*��������� /--I ������**     **���������*��������������������������������� H  vr:.,������|.'L,u    4 ti.    d.iii_������     luv-    *l* t,*m/\.-x-.*jp    ���������uwiiu-j    x~x*\m~-  debentures outstanding against these  railways.

Of this $350,000,000, about SI25,000,-  000 will be eaten up as���������interest on the  putKic debt. In the neighborhood of  $50,000,000 will be required to cover  operating deficits and interest pay-  merits on account of the national railways. Thus these two items alone  will dispose of one-half of the entire  ���������revenue.  Out of thc remaining $175,000,000  some tens of millions must be paid  out in pensions, vocational training  for soldiers, hospital accommodation  and treatment for soldiers, and in various forms of soldiers' civil re-estab-  lishmcnt work. Some millions are to ���������  be spent ir. grants on a population j  basis to thc provinces for highway j  construction; a few millions will be  - used to meet the deficit in the operation of the post office department;  and all the expenses of government,  including the Civil Servicer, administration of J!:-ticr*, militia and police  establishment, sumidies to the provin-  its expenditures to a point where they  can be covered by the revenue. This  country cannot continue living on borrowed money and by going still deeper into debt. There must be national  as well as individual retrenchment.  Instead of getting deeper into debt,  the time approaches when we must  agree to still heavier taxation in.order  to begin the process of liquidating the  national debt, as it is now being done  in Great Britain.  There is nothing in the national situation, however, to despair over or  become pessimistic abut. Canada has  the resources and thc energy and the  ability to meet all its obligations, proceed with its development, and add to  the wealth, prosperity and happiness  of its people. But it cannot be accomplished by continual criticism, by  seeking to tear down existing institutions in order to apply a lot of unbaked theories and untested methods  The world, Canada included, has had  enough of destruction within the past  ' five or six years. What is now neces-  [sary is constructive enterprise, and  that can only be brought about by  work, and by people generally realizing that it is impossible to get something for nothing; that, on the contrary, the present tendency of most  people to be slackers at their job, to  insist upon double the wages formerly  received in return for about half as  much labor and effort on their part,  must be abandoned.  Hard work is in sight for most of  us. If we do not make up our minds  to -undertake such work now, buckle  down to our jobs, and produce to the  maximum of our powers in whatever  occupation we may be engaged, at the  same time cutting out luxuries, and  saving the last possible dollar.���������well,  we are but slightly delaying the time  when dire force of necessity will compel us to do these things, and the longer the delay before doing what we  ought to do, the greater the loss and  the more severe the penalty will be.  If vve don't eliminate luxuries. and  Manitoba Takes Lead in Encouraging  British and Canadian  Sentiment  Thc Good Films Committee dr:-ire  to go on record as being hea-'.tiy in  accord with all movements >- siding to  raise the standard of Mr'ion Picture  entertainments in Mar'.i-ba with a  view to encouraging Ciitislf and Canadian sentiment aud. clean ideals of  family life.

It is strongly advocated that constantly recurring ideas and suggestions in pictures dealing with seduction and infidelity; shady methods of  divorce; vicious underworld characters and methods of life; sex immorality; and the depiction of assault upon women be suppressed.  The lead taken by Manitoba in this  connection might well be followed by  the other prairie provinces.

River Dennis, N.S.? April 26th. ���������  (Special.)���������"Dodd's kidney pills helped nie wonderfully. My back is better and as I haven't taken any other  medicine since starting to take them,  they must have done mc a lot of  good."  In these words, Alexander J. MacLeod, a well-known resident here  gives his reason why he praises  Dodd's Kidney Pills and why he saeys,  "I would advise anybody who has  kidney trouble to give Dodd's Kidney  Pills a trial."  The reason Dodd's Kidney Pills arc  popular all over Canada is that people  have tried them and found them good.  Dodd's Kidney Pills have been in use  in Canada for more than thirty ycars  They have been used by thousands of  people suffering from various forms  of kidney trouble*, such as rheumatism,  dropsy, sore back, weakness, diabetes  and Bright's disease.  Ask any one of these thousands to  give you his opinion of Dodd's Kidney  Pills. It is on the relief afforded sufferers from kidney trouble that  Dodd's .Kidney Pills have built their  reputation as the sovereign remedy  for sick kidneys.  Institution Would Meet The Requirements for Developing the  Natural Resources  Plans for the establishment of a  national research institute for Canada,  were before the commons committee j  on scietific research recently. It was  recommended that a site of at least 5  acres should be secured near Ottawa  and a building of laboratory type four  stories in height, to c-ost $500,000 to  be erected.  The scientific instruments required  wouid cost approximately $100,000 aad  salaries would require about $100,000  per annum.  This institute would be similar to  the bureau of standards at Washington and the Mellon institute at Pittsburgh. It was felt that such an institution would meet the .most pressing requirements for developing natural resources and make provision for  assistance to Canadian industries.

The council has accepted a plan  drawn up for the employment of the  allied armies by Marshal Foch, Field  Marshal Sir Henry Wilson, British  chief of staff, and general Badoglio,  Italian chief of staff, who were present.  Two hundred thousand allied troops  now are within the borders of the  Turkish Empire, stategically disposed  and these forces can be increaesd, if  Turkish resistance is developed to  any essential number.

In some -pases the bridges ���������  are submerged to a depth of more  than four feet of water.

Want to be Allowed to P.etain  Officers and Staff  Paris.���������Germany has asked the inter-allied conference at San Remo to  increase from 100,000 to 200,000 men I  the standing army provided for Germany by the terms of the Treaty of  Versailles.  The request was contained in a note  handed to the French foreign office  last evening with the demand that it  be sent to the supreme council at San  Remo.  Thc note set forth that an increased  force was necessary for thc maintenance of order in thc interior and that,  fundamentally, the army would not  accept an order for its dissolution.  Thc note further requests that Germany be allowed to retain the entire  general staff and corps of officers,  which means the entire framework of  the active army.  Two other notes were handed to  thc foreign office at the same time.  One dealt with the disbandment of  thc civic guards, which has already  been made public, and thc note contained a request that thc reichswehr  force in the neutral zone should bc  fixed according to thc number of men  instead of the number of units, and  that Germany be allowed to have 11  batteries of -artillery instead of two in  the neutral zone.  it is regarded as probable that the old  license system will be abandoned entirely or so liberalized as. to leave but  little restraint on the channels of  trade.  It is fully understood in London  and Washington that in furtherance  of its determination to force political  recognition at the hands of the western European nations and America,  the soviet government wiii do everything possible to hamper such trade  development along independent lines.

Gathering Broke Up in Uproar After  Leaders Had "Been Howled  Down  Chicago.��������� John Grunau, leader of  the outlaw Chicago yardmen's association, who was released from jail  at Joliet, Ills., after friends had de-  positcd_$10,000, was expected to call  a new meeting of striking switchmen  to end thc walkout, following thc tumultous termination of a mass meeting,  called by a committee of strike leaders to vote on returning to w������rk.  Declaring they had been "sold out"  and hooting down attempts of strike  leaders to appeal to them to end thc  walkout, several thousand strikers  bolted a mass meeting when it was  announced Grunau, who was to havc  presided, was still in jail.  Thc gathering broke in an uproar,  Tumult reigned inside and outside thc  hall for half an hour, but there was  no violence and no arrests were made.  Shannon Jones, R. S. Murphy, and  M. J.

As Murphy began to speak  he was greeted with cries of "Where's ,  railways, make Canada commercially-  independent of the United States and  generally help to give Canada its proper piace among tne advancing industrial nations of the world.  It was also strongly urged i-h-afc  there has sprung up throughout th������  entire country an insistent demand*  for the development of the natural-  resources. The government is understood to have replied that it v/as already cognizant of the arguments put  forth and that some definite announcement of policy could be expected before the close of the present session. Practically every province was  represented at the conference.  It is the intention of the government to transfer to Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, their natural  resources as soon as terms fair and  equitable to all other provinces of the  Dominion can be arranged. This information was given to J. A. Campbell, of Nelson, in the house of commons. Mr. Campbell was told that It  had been thc policy of the government to make this transfer ever since  its formation. Parliamentary action  was necessary to effect this transfer.  Loss Owing to Strikes  London.��������� Thomas J.

Hayes, Editor and Owner,  CRESTON,  B.C., FRIDAY, MAY 14  The United Farmers  .1 Ird  With a view to demonstrating  aany-sided possibilities, as  well as offering a little something  extra, as it were, to induce the  young men to join up, Creston  Local of The United Farmers has  decided to develop the social end  of the organization, and in looking over the names of those on the  committee for that purpose certainly no mistake has been made  in selecting those who will have  charge of the lighter side of U.F.  operations.  * However, in deciding to have  the entertainment feature it is to  be hoped the timely admonition  about being moderate in all things  will not be entirely overlooked.  While a little nonsense how and  then is relished by the best of  men it will be most unfortunate  if these social doings get even a  50-50 look in.  In an unorganized district like  this it seems to us the United Farmers have wide scope for operating���������plenty wide enough to make  each Ox tne sessions ���������ueeideoay interesting, if the officers and executive, along with the various committees that will be appointed,  tackle thier work whole heart-  ediy.  "When the U. F. came into existence here The Review maintained  that in the United Farmers, Women's Institute and the Board of  Trade the Valley had a trio of organizations that, working in harmony, should at all times and in  all places be able to bring sufficient pressure to bear to greatly  improve local conditions in many  directions.  The three bodies link up town  and country interests ideally, and  in leading the way in municipal  investigation effort the U. F., has  demonstrated that it is the prac  tical   things   locally   that   count  most.  Municipilization is only one of  several, local problems that the  farmers can lend a decidedly helping hand in solving, and if those  in charge wiii bend their efforts  in resurrecting these and keeping  after them until the desired result  is accomplished it will not take  long to convince the community  of the benefits and good effects of  the U.

In production at any  rate the comparison with the Arrow Lakes district would be best  stated by remarking that that section markets its output by wheelbarrow as compared with Creston's motor truck loads, while in  all the other details that enter into a decision as to where to locate  the advantages are as preponder-  atingly great in Creston's favor.  1920 Erickson's Year  Unfairly Overlooked  Telephone Rates  Owing to the increased cost of  operation and maintenance the  Creston Power, Light & Telephone  Company.

While the excerpts from letters  received by Creston Board of  Trade as published in our issue of  May 7th would indicate that over  a considerable area of likely territory Creston Valley is being advantageously heard of, it would  be unwise to assume that Creston  is a household word even in quarters where one would naturally  look for it to be almost thus readily recalled.  Just about a year ago the board  felt called upon to jack up the  federal department of colonization due to the omission of any  mention of Creston in its pamphlet styled "Opportunities in Western Canada." In this particular  booklet prominence was given to  both Nelson and Grand Forks as  fruit growing centres, while any  reference to the Valley was conspicuous by its absence, and this  despite the fact that so far as output went the fruit shipping from  here was at least treble the amount moved from Nelson, and not  less than fifty per cent in excess  of the shipping from Grand Forks  ���������to say nothing at all of the few  other advantages we believe we  have over either of these centres  in the way of a location next door  to the market.  However,   despite   the   timely  and friendly admonition   by   the  board only last week along comes  a very elaborate map of all Canada in the which is printed in red  ink the natural resources^ of each  district of each province.    Were  a newcomes entering B. C. from  the East to take this map seriously he would have to travel on to  the  Arrow Lake district before  striking any fruit country at all.  Fernie is shown as a coal area,  but   from  that point  westward  the  country,  as   per   this   map,  boasts no resources at all until  the Slocan looms into view, which  is designated as producing zinc,  silver and lead.  At a time when there is a considerable influx of Old Country  people���������with their weakness for  taking government official literature as gospel���������into British Colli ml) ia it is unfortunate Creston  should have been so needlessly  overlooked, and to  the manifest  Announcement that Creston  Fruit Growers' Union will at once  proceed with the erection of a  commodious new warehouse at  Erickson will be good news to the  Valley in general, and to Erickson in particular, more particularly when with the promise of the  new building goes the assurance  that the Union will also stock  there a full line of products carried at the Creston warehouse.  Aii can take satisfaction out of  the announcement, ��������� indicating as  it does that the 1920 crop is due  to considerably eclipse any previous year, while it is equally satisfactory to observe that the Valley's foremost co-operative selling  agency is on the job and preparing to  give the accommodation  and service that will entitle it to  look forward with confidence to  a continuance or   the   trade   of  which it  has  heretofore  always  had by long odds the major portion.  In these times of labor shortage and the high price of help  anything and everything that  tends to save time is welcome, and  certainly the providing of warehouse accommodation and with it  a stock of crates, boxes, flour,  feed, etc., is doubly blessed, t o  say nothing at all of the rather  easier grade that will be provided  to some who will now be able to  ship at the new warehouse.  With the installation of the Water Users' Community irrigation  system, which is nowT practically  assured, along with   the   natural  growth of the output due to the  ageing of  the  trees,   Erickson's  shipping is due for a great expansion.    With   reasonably 'definite  assurance also available that the  C. P. R.   will  have  an  agent  in  charge of the depot there surely  Erickson's   cup   of   prospective  prosperity is filled in good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.  has been nothing short of phenomenal. In his own church he claims  to have inore new scholars this year  than all the churcheB combined had  a year ago. -*������  Proof positive that Kaslo is the one  best bet in the interior for' developing something akin to eternal youth  was furnished last week when Mr.  and Mrs. John Macleod of that town  celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary. Needless to say they are  both Scotch.  Fernie Free Press: Church union'  so far as the local churches are con-,  cerned seems to haye about reached  the end o������ its tether. The obstructionists, consisting of those Methodists who have always been more or  less opposed to union, have put so  many obstacles in the way for an  agreement that those who really desire union are about ready to. throw  up the sponge.  rj-tf-x  inute  Shingles For Sale  10,000 No. 1 at $7.50 per M.   -  100,000 No. 2 at $3.50 per M.  f.o.b.

Cleopatra, great Queen of Egypt,
craving world dominion, has been expelled from Alexandria by the victorious army cf Julius Caesar. Surrounded by her forces, Cleopatra
pitches her tents in the shadow of the
pyramids. . She -vows - yengeance
against Caesar.
A messanger from Alexandria adds
to the Queen's wr.itb by imparting the
news that the Roman Caesar sits in
the council chamber of the Ptolemys.
Determined to face Caesar, Cleopatra orders a i-ug brought, planning
to appear before the Roman, wrapped
in the rug. To make him a slave to
her beauty is her one idea. She orders a chariot and is on hex- way to
face the Conqueror.
Caesar, enraged at the escape of
Cleopatra, sets about to effect her capture. In the midst of his tirade a
soldier announces the arrival of a
messenger- bearing gifts from the King
of Thrace. A huge rug is carried in

Together they swam ahead with  long, even strokes, swimming straight  out into the treacherous Channel,  whither a passing motor-boat heading  in_ from Etaples had lured them. Ten  minutes passed; fifteen minutes; and  still no shore sounds reached their  ears. The chill of the water began to  strike through them. The girl's face,  as she looked back at Ruggles, showed the growing fright that was stealing ovcr her.  "Wc were out far," said she.  i But Ruggles scarcely heard her. A  peculiar aspect of the water about  them had attracted his attention.  Where formerly it had been as flat  and undisturbed as the surface of a  mill-pond, there now appeared peculiar wrinkles, and broad, bland swirls,  as though    some deep    current   were  some time they floated thus locked together. The cold had ceased to trouble them, for the skin surfaces had  grown numb.  "I feel sleepy," said Ruth presently.  "So do I," said Rugglcs, "but we  musn't give -in to it. If we did it  would soon be al! up with ifc."  "I think it is, anyhow," said Ruth.  "But somehow I don't seem to care  much. If it weren't for father and  Dick, I don't believe I'd care at all."  She turned her head, which was almost against Ruggle's. In fact, her  cold cheek touched his as she changed  her position. "I'm sorry I was so nasty about Roxana," she said. ~ "I knew  all the time that it wasn't your fault  ���������but I couldn'a help thinking that  perhaps���������"  "Never mind that now," said Ruggles. "There was never any "perhaps'  about it���������and don't wobble this' thing  any more than you can heip, Ruth, or  it might tip over."

That settled it: he turned  on his side and swam straight out  through tlie stagnant water with its  wispy wreaths of fog.  Presently the grey elusive opacity  was all about him. He rolled over and  tried to peer beneath it, and was successful, in so far as he saw the crimson kerchief not very far aheaei. It  appeared to be motionless, and Ruggles swam slowly in that direction. As  he drew nearer, Ruggles saw that it  was indeed Rath, lying on her back  and paddling slowly outward. He  splashed a little to attract her attention. She looked up, turned in the  water, and stared at him without a  smile.       _ ���������  "Well, here wc are again Mr. Ruggles,"  said she.  "You're too far out," said Ruggles.  "You'd better start back. Do you remember what 1 told yon about the  ���������r-ffshore   current?"  "But I am swimming b~ciTZ said  Ruth. "I've boen swimming back for  the last ten minutes."  "I guess you must havc got sort of  turned around," sa.d Rugglcs. "Some-  time's vou co wh*"*r*. vou've bssn floating."

The girl  discovered it also.  "What's that?" she cried, in sudden  alarm.  "Tide," Ruggles answered. "The  place is full of currents when you get  offshore.    I'm going to shout for help.  He filled his lungs and sent as much  voice as hc was capable of out into  the fog; then listened. Not a sound  came in answer. The silence of oblivion seemed to rest on the face of  the water. He looked at the girl. The  terror in her face went into him like  a knife. There were dark shadows under her eyes and her lips tvere quivering.  "I'm afraid it's all up with us," said  she faintly. "I can't go on much longer."  "Put your hand on my shoulder and  rest," said Rugglcs. "I'm game for a  good while yet."  She did as he told her, and Ruggles  swam on slowly. The eddies turned  and twisted them -armiit. nnd soon all  sense of direction was lost. The tide  flowing out of the estuary of Etaples  was carrying them swiftly out and to  the westward. The strongest swimmer alive could not have gained the  beach under those conditions. Ruggles began to tire.  "I'll swim again said the girl presently. "I'm getting numb with cold.  Havc y^oii any idea which way the  shore is now?"  "No," Ruggles answered, "but it  wouldn't make much difference if I  had. We're in the offshore current.  Even the channel swimmers can't  buck against that." '  "Then it's all up with us," I supose,  she said lifelessly.  "Not by a good deal," Ruggles answered. "If we can keep afloat a while  longer, we're pretty apt to get picked  up by some of the fishing-boats that  go out of Etaples with the tide. I'll  shout again."  He did so, biit as before without result. Then, glancing at his companion  he saw that she seemed to bc settling  in the water. He caught her with his  left hand and drew her to his shoulder.

The Germans are working feverishly to construct giant commercial  and passenger airships and airplanes,  according to a report from Roman-  shorn. Thc first trials were successfully held of two monster machine  above Lake Constance.  The airship Nordstern, greatly surpassing the Zeppelin Bodensee in size,  capacity and power, flew for a half  hour around thc lake with a crcAV of  seven men. At the sanis time a new  giant hydroplane, whose motors totalled 1,000 horse-power, made aerial  trips with 20 passengers.  Both machines were recently com*  pleted at Friedrichshaven, where the  airship factory is said to have doubled in size since the armistice, and  other monsters have already been begun.

He no longer tried to make onward  progress, merely paddling to keep  them both afloat as long as possible.  The eddies grew more violent, twirling about them like driftwood. The  day was growing darker. And then,  as Ruggle's ears were beginning to  hum and black bands to pass before  his eyes, he sighted some object on  thc water at one side. Putting out  his waning strength he struggled to  ward it, and as he drew near lie discovered it to be a large pine packing-  case, thrown overboard, perhaps, from  some passing liner.  "Here's something to hang to," said  he, and reached it in a few strokes.  The girl roused herself. "What's  the use?" said she drowsily.

The Migration of Childrea From Orphanages -to the Dominion  The Manchester Guardian, commenting on thc report of the Canadian Government's inspector of British immigrant children, expresses  gratification that/ the migration of  children from orphanages to the Do-  minietj-n appears shortly to be resumed.  Since 1916, this migration was practically suspended, the report shows.  The paper outlines the unusual opportunities offered in Canada, both m  industries and agriculture, and points  to the increased number of children  now in institutions as a result of the  war as an argument for again opener  ing the gates of Canada to the youthful immigrant.  More than ten thousand applications  for children have been received by  the child-saving institutions in England since the annual migration was  suspended. Many of these applications are from agricultural districts,  it is said, and a large portion of the  applicants are childless.

Transition, in Russia  Lenine, in a recent public, address,  complains that the peasants are showing capitalistic tendencies and are becoming a bourgeoisie.

Cotton has been grown in Egypt  since 200 B.C., but it was not until a  hundred years ago that Jumel, a  French engineer, suggested the introduction of the commercial varieties.  In 1822 thc famous American Sea Island cotton was first sown. Five  years later a Brazilian variety was introduced. The -two strains were mingled and from them came the famous'  "Ashmouni" plant, and the still finer  "Mutaffi," which is one of the most  productive cottons in the world.

Minard's Liniment Relieves Neuralgia  Canada's Population  CAUSE DISTRESS  One Great Essential  To a Woman's Health  Is Her Nerves  Nature intended women to be  strong, healthy and happy as thc day  is long, instead of being sick and  wretched. But how can any woman  be healthy and happy when the whole  nervous system is unstrung. The  trouble in they pay more attention to  their social and household duties than  Ihcy do to thoir health. Is it any  wonder then that thcy become irritable and nervous, have hot flushes,  faint and dizzy spells, smothering and  sinking spells, become weak and nervous, and everything in life becomes  dark and gloomy.

Next Census Likely to Show A Population of .Considerably Over  Nine Million  Canada's next census is likely to  show a population or thc Dominion  of over nine million people. Figures  recently published and based on departmental estimates, gave the population of the Dominion as 8,835,102.  While these estimates in the past have  proven approximately correct, it is to  be pointed out. tliat they covered a  period which ended on March 31, 1919  nearly a year ago. Since that time  there has been a great influx of people to Canada.  The major portion of Canada's  overseas forces around the four hundred thousand ma:-!:, has returned to  Canada since that date, and immigration from Great Britain, which languished during the war. years, ha3 revived to .1 considerable extent. There  has also been a considerable movement from the United States. With  the return of such a large portion  of the male population from overseas  the jiatura! increase should bc much  in excess of the period from 1914 to  1919. With all these factora considered, it would not Jbe surprising if  even the estimftte of nine million!?  should be greatly exceeded.  But They Are Nearly Always Due To  Thin, Watery Blood  Do not think that because your  stomach is easily upset you are the  victim of some serious malady. One  of the most common predisposing  causes of indigestion is anaemia, or  thin, watery blood. In fact it has become generally recognized that healthy activity of the stomach is impossible unless the blood is rich and "red.  Dr. Williams Pink Pills have been  found most valuable in cases of indigestion, nervous dyspepsia and stomach weakness, just because they are  a blood builder and nerve tonic.   Thc  rich,  red blood  they make not  only  imparts a healthy digestion, but carries color to the cheeks and lips and  gives vigor to the muscles.    One important point to remember is that Dr.  Williams Pink Pills contain no harmful drugs or opiates and are thus to  be preferred    to    preparations    that  merely stimulate for a time.     Before  you begin worrying unnecessarily about your state of health, try the tonic  treatment of Dr. Williams Pink Pills  You will be surprised to sec how rapidly your whole debilitated system revives, as thc new, rich blood courses  through your body.   Here is the statement of one person among, thousands  who have used Dr. Williams Pink Pills  to  their own  great advantage.    Mrs.  A. Veniot, Homford, N.S., says: "For  about two years I was a great sufferer from indigestion, which seemed to  carry with it a complication of other  troubles.    Every meal I took brought  with it misery, as it was followed by  pain, and sometimes nausea and vomiting.   At other times gas would form  in the stomach to such an extent that  my heart would palpitate at an alarming rate.    These conditions    brought  Move to Encourage Farmers to xam~  Up Vacant Lands  The executive of the Saskatchewan  Farm Settlement. Association has  completed plans for the biggest conference ever held in the province of  Saskatchewan to take place in Saskatoon May 25 to 28 inclusive. Under the slogan of "A farmer on every  vacant farm inside of five years," the  officials of the association are aiming  to make this year's conference a record breaker and one which will go a  long way towards encouraging farmers to take up the vacant land in the  province.  The premiers of the four -western  provinces have been invited to attend  this conference, as well as the governors of thc Northwestern, Central  and Border. States. It is intended as  a get together meeting of the people  most vitally interested in the forward  movement in agriculture and promises  to bring about satisfactory results.  At the conference several subjects  of serious import to thc farmers of  the province will be discussed by experts who have already promised to  attend. Among the subjects will be  dry farming, agricultural credits at a  low rate of interest and mutual co-operation between large land owners in  assisting to place farmers on the vacant land of the province.  J. H. Haslam, who for ycars has  been one of the most energetic workers in the cause of the west, is the  moving spirit in the organization of  this conference. Mr. Haslam, who  has a large clientele in the United  States, has been assured that a large  number of well-to-do farmers from  across the border desire to investigate  farm land prices in Saskatchewan  with the end in view of establishing  themselves here. Prices of farm lands  In the Dakotas, Iowa and the northwestern states, havc increased to such  a level that farmers find it quite profitable to sell out and re-invest thcir  money in the best wheat growing  lands in the world.
