SISTER  8UPKRIOU,  * The United Farmerrs are hoping  for a full turnout of all the members  as well as those wishing to join up,  at the annual meeting on Tuesday  night at tbe schoolhouse, at 8 o'clock.  The G.- Cartwright ranch looks to  have establsht d a bit of a record in  the way of profitable poultry raising.  23 of their spring Barred Rock cock-  rels were marketed at Creston last  week, and netted the rather handsome total of $44. Several of them  went over seven pounds aach..  Miss *Jeanue Palmer." whose* marriage to H. R. Whimster of Nelson  took pluce on Tuesdav, was guest of  honor at a miscellaneous shower at  the home of Mrs. Frank Staples|on  Thursday afternoon la&t. when most  of thev young people of this section  gathered for a few hours of sociability  with the bride-eleet, as well as to  ���������'shower" her with numerous useful  gifts. The' hostess was assisted 'by  Miss Melva Cartwright' who, had  charge of the tea, while^Misses Jane  Long aud Ruth Klingensmith were in  charge of the refreshments- The  guest has- been a very popular member of the Valiey,s social circle, and  the best wishes of all are extended for  future happiness.  The United Farmers have already  .decided to ask the goyermnent to  hold an apple packing schoql at Erickson this season, and from present  appearances there will also be pupils  enough to have a pruning school as  well.  The most successful entertainment  of the sort ever given In the Valley is  the verdict of those who were present  at the children's entertainment* at the  schoolhouse on Wednesday night last  "w*hie&*-WKS" given largely by theiptipilb  and effort of those^connected with the  Union Sunday school. The programme was ^nicely -balanced, as to literary  rsF   ���������s^hie'h  ailU       U1U9IUU     uuuiucid,     i.xx    ���������  were   carefully  selected.

Edward  Martin and Doug,  las   Putnam,   while there were songs  by   Neola  Clarke,    Edward   Claake,  Marguerite^ Clarke,  ^ith  a  duett by  Kathleen   ar-d   Elizabeth Littlejohn.  The senior girls   had a-chorus, while  Agnes and Thomas Campbell fayored  with a violin duett.     A novel feature  was the ^band ,song in whicn Walter  Dodds,  Lyle Kemp, James Handley,  Donnis  Harrison,   Tony   Kemp   and  Lloyd Cartwright took part.    Rev. G.  Knox   was also   anothei  performer,  wbile'Messrs. Cuming and Hall scored  a great hit with their violin and guitar duett.    After the programme there  was a Christmas tree and a real Santa  Clans who remembered all the Erickson children  with the usual Christmos tree good things, and   then refreshments were served.     A word of  hearty   commendation  . is  due  Mrs.  Kemp  and   Mrs. -Birney. who   were  largelr  responsible * for training the  children for   the entertainment, and  Mrs.  Campbell and   Miss   Hill   who  were in charge of the refreshmeots.

"You see," said Mr, Dayton, his  whole manner changing, "I know  Kim, sir, for the damned cur he is. 2  have reason to know him���������2���������"  Passion strangled * him. He was  white and shaking. But with an effort he' mastered his feelings, and  went on more calmly:���������  "You are a man, Mr. Dorkin, and  3 know you will understand. - 1  would like .you to know just what a  hound this Timberley is.

She wrote him a brief  note and sent him back his ring, Ncdci  .'day we came up here, Mr. Dorkin. He  has followed us. He will injure us  in some way���������if he can,"  Again he sought his handkerchief  and wiped his brow.  "Mr. Dorkin," he said apologetically, "I have no right to burden you  with out troubles. .- You must pardon  an old man wh*o has been somewhat  carried away, to-day, in the contemplation of a villain's intended perfidies. But I wished you to understand fuily the kind of man you have  to deal with."  "Then you know, for a certainty,  that hc intends disturbing nie?" Dorkin  asked gravely.  :'Yes; I met, him on the- trail the  other day, and, among the other  pleasant things he, told me,, was that  fn- intended to drive you out of this  place."  ".I am grateful to you for warning  rae, Mr. Dayton,'' said Dorkin warmly. "I shall be on my guard. Already, I think 1 have found signs of  Timberley's master hand���������and I shall  watch for cuhrr*.

For  a time she lay passive, then she struggled to-a'sitting posture.  "She'll Be all right now." Washburn assured^the' banker. "Jest let  her re'st a b^ys^iUe I try and find out  what that skunk's been doin',"  He turned away towards the enclosure.

It kept straight on  upstream. Washburn waited till a  distant crook of the bank hid it, then  he stepped out from his hiding-place.  "You saw that half-breed," he said,  turning to Edna and her uncle. "We'll,  I bet anythin', either him or his half-  brother, White Hawk, could tell who-  it was shot Daddy Farney."  "And who is White Hawk?" inquired Mr. Dayton.  ."He's a thievin', murdering Injun."  Washburn spat disgustedly, and  screwed up his face in a grimace.

V  /J  Decision and Indecision  By T. M. EDMONDSON.  Decision and indecision; words very much alike,  But they differ in their meaning as day differs from the night.  Decision is an old word���������part of thr mighty plan,  When as the scriptures sayeth, God said, '%f������t us make man."  JJy His creative hand, and Mis decisive will,  This part of God's creation He surely did fulfil,  lie gave to man decision, as you wiii aii agree,  When he was put on trial beside the apple tree.  No court, no judge, no jury were at this famous trial,  It was. a woman lawyer who thus caused Adam's fall.  Shocked with this indecision, which made the heavens ring,  Adam gained his first experience which made his conscience sting.  And from that day to this late hour  We reap seeds of indecision's power.  And thus blind indecision���������blind to the cause of right���������  Crept painfully into this world, this land of pure delight.   ���������  We leave this sacred story to study when you will ,���������  While we permeate the regions of science, art and skill,  In the" splendid comparisons, the seven wonders of the work),  We find decision pictured by the British flag unfurled,  In the seven wonders of the world we eee science, art and .skill  Surpassing all our thoughts; subduing all our will.  The Pyramids of Egypt���������the place of many tombs���������  Intricate in construction as .the threads of weavers' looms,  Stand forth as monuments of decision's mighty towers,  The abode or resting place of kingly sepulchres.  In geometrical dignity these wonders of the age  Have never fully been depicted by poet, bard or sage.  \ Imposing and impressive, the home of supposed souls,  We leave them in their glory as eternal ages roll.  The hanging gardens of Babylon, in grandeur so sublime,  We see decision's character that no art can define.  But.of the other wonders of the world't magnificence  We have not space to tell as you see at a glance.  The North Star in the:heavens is a decisive star,  It guides the mariner at sea, and explorers from afar.  In Africa's lonely'forest it stood forth as the sun;  It guided Stanley's way, and also Livingstone.  If decision is so important as epochs and eras roll  Thehi surely, more important the decision of ther soul.  The soul shall live forever though all other things have died   'Twill return to its Creator if redeemed by the crucified.  We are entering on a new year, a most happy event,  W hen every individual should make a covenant,    .  It would help to ease life's burdens; help to walk the narrow way;  Will it be for decision or indecision, say? " '  Then oh New Year's Day, should troubled billows roll,  Pray chase them all away; Jesus lover of my soul.  FURNITURE!  FIFTEEN DAYS ON LY  will allow  P  er Cent.

Of this amount $342 came from  the various public entertainments and  the balance was mostly from the teas  that feature the regular meeting, and  the annual fees of a membership just  under 100. A reyiew of the year's operations is briefly given in the report  of Mrs. J. W. Hamilton, the retiring  secretary-treasurer, which follows :  The membership this year consists of  86 members and 11 associate, total 97,  A yeai ago last April we started a  lending library, free to members of  the Institute, and last October the Institute handed over their library of a  little over.SQp books to the Public Library Association.  - The Institute has been instrumental  in getting a public health nurse for  this district,, and at the meeting in  May decided to send out subscription  forms for eyery member. This started  the campaign which the health committee from the different organizations'in the district have continued  since June, resulting in the arrival of  Miss McLuhan last month. The Institute has been able to be tof assistance  ir. some cases of need of help, the sum  spent in relief work amounting to $66.  Another good work has been the introduction of ' hot. lunches in the  school, on which the institute has  spent$53.20. Besides these amounts  we have;-donated $15 to the fair in  prizes, and $10 each to-the Navy League and the Federated Institutes.  Papers have been read on. different  subjects by the members, and Mr.  Schofield of .St. John's Ambulance Society gave an address in_March.

This week attention is directed to a subject which  comes solely within the jurisdiction of the Dominion, namely, Banking, incorporation of Banks, currency, coinage and issue of paper money.  The subject of Banking is very much in the public mind at the present  time, as it always is in periods of "tight money" and when .an' economic  necessity arises, not in the interest of the Banks alone, but in the interest  of thc. whole country, to curtail credit and prepare for- financial storms. A  Bank, or a country, that failed to so protect itself avould be: like the'captain  of a sailing ship who refused to shorten his sail on a falling barometer. It  would be to invite disaster. Yet, at the present time, there are loud outcries in certain quarters because the Banks are adopting a course which  common prudence demands. Z....   v  The necessity imposed upon the Banks of protecting the moneys entrusted to them by depositors and investors, Is seized upon by unthinking  people, and those who feel they have a personal grievance because thcy cannot obtain all the credit they demand, to clamor for a change in the Banking systcm of Canada, and a periodical agitation is revived for the establishment of some system of Local or Provincial Banks. Those who voice such  a demand shut their eyes to the fact that all.Banking history, especially in  new countries, has served to demonstrate the weakness of local Banking in-  gitutions and to prove the strength of a Federal system under which the  money resources of one section of the country can, in periods of stress and  emergency, bc made available tn less favored or more needy sections. This  fact was finally recognized in the United States by the creation some six  or seven years ago of the Federal Reserve Banks.  The fact also must be recognized that, so far as Western Canada is concerned, it is still a borrowing country. Loans still far exceed deposits in  amount. This is natural and inevitable tn a new country where the work  of development is yet in its infancy. Inasmuch as the loaning power of a  Bank is dependent upon the volume of its deposits, purely Local or Provincial Banks in the West would of necessity be weak and the,ir power to meet  the credit demands of the people here limited. A Bank is after all but a  trustee of the money of one group of people, the depositors, and the agency  through which that money is loaned upon satisfactory security and at  profitable rates of interest to another group, the borrowers. If. a Bank  should consider borrowers only, it would be false to the .trust reposed m  it by deposittors. It would soon have no depositors and hence nothing to  loan.  Again, those who advocate���������who even demand���������that Provincial Governments shall go into the Banking business, lose sight of the fact that the  Fathers of Confederation in their wisdom, and with the experience of the  ages to guide them, specifically provided in the Canadian constitution that  the Federal Parliament, and it alone, should Have jurisdiction in the matter  of Banking. Those who demand that Provincial Governments set up systems of Banking to suit the particular needs of their own people are asking for something Provincial Governments and Legislatures have no power  to grant.  Provincial Governments have power to create such institutions as Farm  Loans Boards, and our Western Provinces have established such organizations, but everybody recognizes that thc ability of these Boards to make  loans is strictly limited to thc amount of money Governments are able to  borrow on the security of the whole Province, which money Is then turned  ovcr to thc Boards to put out in loans. If the people who have money  will not lend it to the Governments for this purpose, the Farm Loans  Boards cannot make loans. And if because of local conditions the people  have not the money to loan to the Governments, they in turn havc- nothing  to loan-on farm mortgages.  Therefore, even if the Provinces had power to incorporate, and create  Banks, such Banks would be subject to local conditions and limitations very  similar to those affecting the operations ..of Farm Loans Boards. A Federal  Bank, on the other hand, is not subject to these restrictions but may employ is resource;^ derived from onc section of the country for credit purposes elsewhere.

Ont,  and at six years the eruption of the  permanent teeth is just beginning.  This period, from two until six is the  time that 'the temporary teeth are in  thcir prime. If the twenty little  teeth are free from decay and the  child is able to chew its food so that  the proper nourishment will be extracted, the little body will haye.  strength to resist or overcome nearly  aii of the Infections that may come to  childhood.  The temporary teeth are of greater  importance to the child than are the  permanent teeth to the adult, because  a child must not only be nourished  to keep up thc ordinary life processes,  but it must -have nourishment for  rapid .growth as well.  The temporary teeth decay much  more rapidly than the permanent  teeth because their structure is not* so  dense and in addition the ' pulp is  more quickly exposed because.*';..it is  larger in proportion to the size or the  tooth. . Nearly all dentists agree that  the treatment of a temporary tooth  with an exposed pulp is hopeless. The  best that can be done is to give temporary relief. If ' the temporary  teeth arc lost, thcy cannot be satisfactorily replaced.  The permanent teeth lie in the baby  jaw just beyond the roots of the temporary teeth and are only partially  formed even at the time of their eruption. If thc baby teeth are allowed  to abscess, the growing permanent  teeth arc bathed in pus and will probably be seriously damaged or totally  ruined. Children are highly sus-  ccptablc to pus. Abscesses of temporary teeth produce ' general infections that result in lowered vitality,  rheumatism, heart inflammations a%nd  many other diseases - that arc very  serious and sometimes fatal.

Along the  Saskatchewan River, west of Edmonton alone, he say, "there' is plenty of  pulp wood to warrant the building of  a large mill, but it would be necessary  to develop power on the river/' This  can be done because in the higher  reaches of the Saskatchewan there is  sufficient potential power to operate  several pulp mills if wanted.

On one of these  occasions, in the fall of 1892 if my  ���������membryiis correct, he drppped in.and  received-his usual welcoine. He had  been ''across' the mountains and down  in California and Utah. These places  at that time were being swept by a  spiritualistic wave (something like the  present time) and. table turning, consulting with mediums, etc., was all  the rage.  One night after the day's work was  done and a few friends had come in  (1892 saw the first settlers, who were  campung close at hand) to meet and  listen to Mr. Ogilvie who was a  most accomplished raconteur; with a  marvellous memory, he proposed that  ���������we try and getin touch with the-other  world by joining hands, round our  large table. .We had been very much  Interested in hearing details of what  he had seen on his western trip in this  line, so the reply was immediate, "let  Us try." An e3c-nayalr officer was  staying with me at the time'and-he  laughed the whole thing to scorn,  would have nothing to do with it, and  talked 6i fakes, imposture and all the  rest of it; ~o.28t appointed him chief  critic.  There were present a doctor's wife,  a .young lady teacher, my ..own family  and several others, some eight or ten  in aU, or more, and Ogilvie placed us  standing round the' table rather away  from it and leaning forward resting  the" tip(s 6f,-x>ur -fingers %������on i|.

' There  were no .castors on" it; in ?fact you  could riot shove iti very well and -t  lad no be lifted when moved.  Well, we circled the table, and Mr.  Ogilvie arranged a formula, so many  ���������-knocks-for-certain words and soon,  and the...table 'when, inspired was to  rear up and knock replies.

Finally the latter  said tome: "Has anyone died since  you settled her some nine or ten years  ago?" "No white man," was my reply. "Have any Indians died?"  "Yes, several years after . we came  here a fine young Indian greatly beloved,by his tribe died arid is buried  close to where we are."

That table, heavy  and all as it was, fairly -waltzed round  our living room, knocked replies to  questions^with a bang, and, in fact,  acted in a most amazing-manner, Ja-  poon-is-kum was asked if he was  happy.

The ground is taken that, notwithstanding the criticism to which the  j board has been subjected, ifs findings  cannot on the most searching analysis, he fairly characterized as other  than just and reasonable.  After dealing at some length with  the general aspects of tlie case and  commenting on . certain criticisms of  the board, which have been made in  respect to its action in increasing  rates, the judgment deals exhaustively with the financial position of  the Canadian Pacific Hallway at the  present time. After presenting figures showing --st-diat the situation for  the .company ..would.:; be with atid  .without the rate increases, the board  ^declares  that these    figures    furnish  becoming tired, we stopped. There  was a distinct spooky effect, and X  think we all realised that there wer-e  unseen forces surrounding us of  which we knew little or nothing.  Even the naval critic was silenced,  much to Ogilvie's delight.  . Pa-poon-is-kum     had     an     elder  brother, a fine hunter named O-poo-  hoo-sis    (still    living  X  am  glad* to  say at Ft. La Come)  who called at  my house some time after onr Seance,  ���������and after some preliminary remarks I  told him T bad been talldng with his  dead brother.      "Oh," was his reply,  "I did not think the white man could  do that, but I" often talk with him."  O-poo-hoo-sis   was    Pagan    at   that  time, is now Christianised and would  be highly offended if youvasked him  to'communicate -with-the. other vK*orld.  On a number of occasions ffS-^v-  known Pagan  Indians who constantly communicated with  the spirits of  ���������the departed  (or  thought* they did),  and it was a very solemn and serious  matter I can assure you,     They are  extremely reticent in matters of this  nature and you have to know them  very well indeed before they will reveal these inner feelings.     It appears  as if the unseen world and its relation  to our own }s much thinner with sav*  a fair indication that ohc company is  "nox likely to do more than pay its  way during the coming year, if indeed it; succeeds in avoiding A* deficit"   :ZZ P^ (Z- Z'jZz 'pZyZ  The order;. granting an increase in  rates, which has been the subject of  considerable criticism, was written  by Chief Commissioner Carvell and  concurred in by the other members  of the board. The judgment handed down was written by Commissioner Dr. J. G. Rutherford and concurred  in by Hon. F. B. Carvell and Assistant Chief Commissioner Dr. S. J. McLean.  The application which-ivas mado  by Mr. H. J. Symington, for Manitoba, and D'Arcy Scott, for Saskatchewan, and representatives of other  interests, was. based on a judgment  of the. -Governorrin-Councilj; which  referred'' the" order granting increased  railway* rates back to the board for  further consideration. Mr. Symington asked that if the rates were not  suspended the increase in ������ates on  lines west,of.,Fort William should be  retdu'eed to IS .per cent.  T?  loratio  have lost that fine sense.

The banks of North Dakota, many of which are small local  banks, have been seriously affected  by this "wheat strike." Owing'to'the*  loc������ii nature of these institutions, a  situation such as the existing one^ is  sufficient to imperil their financial.existence. As a matter of fact fifteen of  these-banks have closed their doors in  as many days. It is stated that some  of them, will re-open as soon as the  present financial stringency ends.  We have heard a great deal in this  western country of the merits of the  small local banks, so plentiful in the  United States. We have heard much  of the disadvantages of the Canadian  banking system, much more than "can  be substantiated. But we have not yet  heard of'a fin-an-jfel stringency in any  or all of the "Weston Provinces resulting th the" clo-aing down of fifteen  Canadian branch banks.
