"That was Willow,'5. Dorkin informed her. "The Wisp, the woods-folk  call her, because she^comes and goes  ���������as you saw her do. She is my  ward," he explained, noting the look  qf-wonder in Edna's eyes. "She  lives with the LaPeers. I promised  her dead father to look after her. I  am troubled about her education. It  would kill her to send her away'from  the forest. Perhaps," he added hopefully, "you can-help me by suggesting  some means whereby she might bc*  instructed without having to send her  too far away."     ���������,--,  "Perhaps I can," she agreed readily. "Do you think she will be  friends with mc?" she asked eagerly.  Dorkin smiled. "I hope so," he  said, "but you will perhaps find Willow odd, in some ways. If you succeed in winning her friendship, Miss  Marsh, you will have won something  worth while."  "Oh, I am sure of it!" she cried. "I  have heard of Willow Farney, from  the Washburns and others. I met  her brother, quite by accident on the  trail, one morning, and he told mc  about her, too. Incidentally," she  laughed. "He paid mc a very nice  compliment. I am sure Danny and  I shall be friends."        _ _  "He's a grand chap, Danny," IJor-  kin replied; "hot-headed, hot-hearted,  and impetuous, but loyal to the' core.  But come," he said lightly, "let me  lead you to the tea and cakes which  Mrs.| LaPeer has prepared for you,  and you must make yourself comfort-e  able in the cabin while I seek my  other guests.  CHAPTER XIV.  Dorkin found Pa Washburn arid  Mr. Dayton down in that part of the  enclosure where all the animals meant  for shipment during the coming autumn were kept by themselves. La-  Peer was showing the visitors about.  "Hello, Big Boy," was Washburn's  greeting when he spied Dorkin."A.nd  how goes the world of wild things?"  Dorkin laughed. "Fine, Pop; fine,"  be answered.  "Mr. Dayton, sir," said Pa Washburn  proudly,  "this  is  him."  Dorkin glanced searchingly at the  thin face of the city man and was relieved to note no look of recognition  in his eyes, as Mr. _Dayton held out  his hand with a word or two of congratulation. "You have a wond-Rtful  place here, Mr. Dorkin," he said enthusiastically; "a wonderful place."  "There are many almost as wonderful for the seeking," returned Dorkin;  "millions of acres of wonders, Mr.  Dayton."  "Yes, it's all wonderful," agreed thc  oftler man. His cyc-3 were following  Washburn and LaPeer,'who had withdrawn to thc far side of th cenclosure.  Dorkin noted that the barker had  aged greatly since the time he had  last seen him in thc city. He was  fra'-ler, his hair was wh'ter, and theie  i was that in his shifting glance aud  twitching movements which told of  mental     or     nervous     strain. Hc  caught a quick sigh of pain, or weariness, as the city man sank to a mossy  mound.  "You havc had quite a long walk,  Mr. Dayton," hc said concernedly.  "It's pretty much all uphill from  Lookup,   here?."  "I do' fool a little tired," the other  confessed. "By thc way," hc asked,  "did you, by any chance, come across  mv niece, on your way here, Mr. Dorkin?"  "Yes, indeed, she is having tea with  Mrs.   LaPeer.      Perhaps   you   would  lik*-.-. to join her?" Dorkin suggested.  Mr. Dayton shook his head,      "No  Warming rell&f? tot  rheumatic aches.

Dorkin leaned against a tree and  smiled at the wry expression on the  old man's patrician face. "You'll be  friends again before you leave these  big woods," . he assured him. "I  mean, of'course," as the banker lifted  his brows, "you will be able to. drink  a cup of tea without distress, if you  car-? to."  "Which is another way of saying  tha't there is a cure in "this wilderness  of yours for every malady���������including  dyspepsia?' 'smiled his visitor. "My  boy," lie said, "I'd like to believe  you,":���������and his face grew serious���������  "but that.would be too good. And  still," he added, perplexedly, "I must  admit this world up here makes one  feel���������different."  He-, looked quickly up at Dorkin.  "Mr. Dorkin," he said, hesitatingly,  "I'm getting to be an old man, and I  am far from strong. You have youth  and strength. Will you, I wonder,  fo'rgive what may well seem to be presumption on my part, if I ask you a  question?"  "Please ask it," Dorkin invited.  "It is this, then." - Mr. Dayton  shifted uneasily and cleared his  throat. Obviously hc was finding it  difficult to say what he wished to say.  "You were, I understand, with the  old trapper, Mr. Farney, when he  died," he said at length. "Please tejll  me, did he mention to you anything  concerning one George Graydon, an  artist, or his wife, Annilec, both of  whom lost their lives by drovming,  some eighteen years\ago, in a river  adjacent to the lake known as the  Basin of White Water?"  He paused, searching Dorkin's face,  his lips twitching and his hands trembling.  Dorkin shook his head.      "No," he  answered,."Daddy Farney never told:  nie anything concerning such people."  ^''Thanks?' Mr- Bay ton took a silk  handkerchief ���������>. from his pocket, -.and  wiped 'his brov/." "Mr. Graydon was  my friend," he explained, "and his  wife���������---she was very beautiful. The  terrible tragedy of their untimely  death has cast a shadow over myN  whole life,  Mr. Dorkin." >  He paused to wipe his eyes, and in  a husky voice went on: "Thcy left no  heir io the quarter million 'dollars  they left behind; the fortune reverted  to a little niece whom they had left in  my care." .  He glanced beseechingly^ up at  Dorkin.      His eyes were humid.  "I have tried to take poor George's  place, Mr. Dorkin. Edna is a sweet,  good girl, and has been thc sunshine  of my life for nineteen years, although there are no blood ties between us. She has learned that it  was in this district that her uncle ana  aunt lost their lives. Perhaps it is  but natural that, loving her as I do, I  should strive for a shred of intelligence to give her?"  "Most natural, sir," cried Dorkin  sympathetically. .. "I am only sorry  I have no news for her. It is barely possible, though, that Sagawa, the*  Algonquin/ would know something  concerning the tragedy," he added  hopefully. "When he comes again  I can question him, if you wish?"  Mr., Dayton- pondered a moment,  then shook his head.  "On second consideration, perhaps  it would be best not to," he reflected;  /'for, after all, what good purpose  would it serve? On the other hand,  might it not re-open the wound in_ her  bereaved heart now at least partially  healed? No, much as I should wish  to know that poor George left some  word or token for her���������for us���������perhaps we had better say nothing more  about it, Mr. Dorkin."  Dorkin bowed. "As you wish," he  said.  Mr. Dayton stood up. "Might I  ask that you treat what I havc said to  you as confidential?" he requested, almost pleadingly.  "Assuredly, Mr. Dayton."

B.O.,  FRIDAY, DEC. 24  Confidence that Counts  Locally, at any rate, no more  striking expression  of the truth  of the old saying that has it that  "What  is worth doing is worth  doing well," has even been furnish  ed than in the erection and completion of Creston's   new   Grand  theatre,  which was   opened   for  business a couple of weeks ago.  On its three floors this community is provided with accommodation for Public gatherings of every  sort  and   dimensions, which for  size and in every other detail is  hardly surpassed in 'any city, and  certainly is not equalled in many  of the interior towns.   Under one  roof,  and  with air modern  comforts and conveniences, is provided accommodation for the many ���������  moderate-size  gatherings Creston j  is iikely to have, while the theatre  proper  will   comfortably  house   !  any  of the  big public meetings '  we will have from time to time. \  And on the second floor is laid \  out an auditorium that will meet  every   need    of   the    constantly- j  growing army of pleasure makers. '���������  The need of such a structure has  been felt for months past, and the  decision  to  supply a community,  need on a central location at    a.  time when building costs were at  their highest but adds fo the com-!  mendation due C. O. Rodgers for  getting on with the erection of a  needed public utility.   Aside from  the practical use that can be made  of the Grand its erection has at j  least added significance of expres-,  sing in the most tangible form  the confidence the. owner has in  the future of Creston.    Like the j  rest of us Mr. Rodgers has some i  faults but  certainly no  one  can  ever accuse him of being,a pessimist insofar as the future of Cfes-  i  ton Valley is concerned���������and the'  Grand theatre enterprise  is  only,  one of several   undertakings   in  which he has given striking proof  of his confidence in the country.  The Grand is certainly the most  welcome Christmas gift the town  has received in recent years and  in  accepting the same the community expresses the sincere hope  that the Valley will shortly demonstrate in tangible fashion that'  the confidence in Creston typified  in the,Grand was not misplaced.  eral thousand dollars per annum  could be saved in sessional indemnities and other governmental expense,  and  administrative  efficiency would be improved rather  than impaired, and a purely agricultural constituency created out  of the Creston Valley and Kootenay Lake centres.   But, lest any  doubling up process such as we  have outlined should contemplate  putting   Creston  into  the   Cranbrook riding we  believe we  express the sentimelits of all when  we protest against any such move.  If we can't have a little riding of  our own for-heaven's sake leave  us with Kaslo.  Packing and Pruning School  Creston Constituency  Still another aspect to the political situation that has not   been  overlooked is the possibility of the  Creston   Valley,   and   the   lake  points at present included in the  Kaslo riding, being created a sep-  erate electoral district in the next  redistribution, which  should, follow shortly after the census which  will be taken next year.    That a  redistribution is desirable is apparent from a perusal of the total vote cast in some of the interior constituencies on December 1.  Taking the figures in the ridings  of Greenwood, Grand Porks   and  Rossland it is quite safe to say  that  the total vote  cast at. the  eight Valley polls, plus the vote at  Boswell,  Crawford  Bay,  Queens  Bay   and   Gray's   Creek   almost  equal the polling in any of three  ridings mentioned, each of which  has a representative of its  own.  Were   Grand Forks   and   Greenwood, Rossland and Trail,    and  Kaslo  and  Slocan  ridings merged into three electoral districts,  and a Creston riding created, sev-  DECIDE whether you want one  which plays all records, or one which  limits you to a single make���������whether  you will be content with old standards  of tone reproduction or the better  qualities afforded by The Brunswick.

MAWSON BROTHERS  Now that the Farmers' Institute has about'passed into history  it, is to be.hoped that the locals of  the United Farmers that have in  some measure supplanted it will  not overlook the duty that devolves upon them to carry out some  of the work which in the past has  been taken care ...of by the institute.   What we have particularly  in mind is the apple packing and  pruning   schools,    announcement"  as to the holding of which is now  made��������� provided a sufficiency  of  pupils is forthcoming. Within the  past  twelve  months  very  many  new people have  come   into   the  Valley in addition to the soldier  farmers at Lister, who are absolutely strangers to both pruning  and packing, all of whom  should  have   encouragement  and  opportunity to attend these courses of  instruction.   Thanks solely to the  fact that the crop was light this  year  little   or -no   inconvenience  was experienced in securing sufficient   help  to   handle   the   apple  crop, but with the"1921 prospects  for a yield at least 50 per cent in  excess of 1919"iti", is not a bit too  '������������������'"--J   '<-*������������������:  early to be about seeing to it that  every possible* resident unskilled  in apple packing, particularly, be  at least proyided with much needed instruction. As the packing  class will be held some time during January the matter should be  having the immediate attention  of the farmers' organizations.  Reducing Cattle Feed Costs  With   characteristic   disregard  of the storied happeuing to a near  sighted dairyman who, on one occasion fed his   cow   sawdust   in  place of bran, and one fine morning extracted from the bovine ' a  matter of a pail of clothes pins,  three baseball bats and a bundle  of lath,   the   Cranbrook   Courier  -somes along with the theory that  sawdust will very shortly be used  as cow feed.   In fact, the Courier  has it that experiments along this  line have already been made and  the animals subjected to tho diet,  not only gave more milk, but also  increased   in  weight.    The  process of preparing the new food is  described by  two  dairy   experts  of   the   University   of   Chicago:  "While sawdust, finely ground, is  treated under steam pressure with  diluted sulphuric acid in a large  boiler, known as a digestor.   This  hrenks up the fibre and extracts  (ho sugar.    To prevent injurious  (.'ITectN, the acid is neutralized by  ndding linus to produce chemical  action.   The liquid thus obtained  when boiled down, is rich in augur,  jiikI,   when  mixed  with   tho  filire, produces a moist feed containing about ir������ per cent of wa-  ti������r, in which  form it iH fed    to  dairy uowh.

Tt'.  S~i 4*  t    . * X T 1     1  ^Safeguarding the public  JTleaith  In previous articles in this scries, reference was made to certain subjects, legislation in regard to and administration of which are subject to  dual control by the Dominion Parliament and Provincial Legislatures.  Among such subjects, which, however, was not previously enumerated, is  Public Health. -  The Dominion Parliament, which recently created a Federal Department of Public Health,-is responsible for the establishment and enforcement of quarantine to prevent thc introduction of disease into Canada from  abroad; for thc establishment and maintenance of Marine Hospitals; for thc  medical inspection of immigrants, and, generally, work of an educational  character affecting" the health and wejl-being of all the Canadian people.  The larger portion of the burden of expense and administration in connection with safeguarding the public health is imposed on the. Provinces,  which a.r������ responsible for the establishment, maintenance, and management  of hospitals, asylums, charities, institutions for the deaf and dumb, blind,  mentally deficient, and so forth. Under Provincial legislation the direct  and active management of many of these, institutions is naturally, and properly, placed upon municipal authorities, but the Provincial Government  makes large annual contributions towards the cost of thcir upkeep.  To a much more general extent than ever before, Governments and  people the world ovcr have awakened to a realization of thc imperative  duty devolving upon them lo improve the physical standard and general  health of the people; also that the safeguarding and improvment of "the  public health is not a mere local matter, nor even national, but international.  A plague or outbreak of disease in any onc country may, in these days of  rapid transportation and close communication, threaten all other countries.  People and Governments have at least come lo a realization of the. fact  that human life is more valuable than the life of domestic, livestock; that  they have been absurdly inconsistent in'the past in expending huge* sums to  improve the standard of horses, cattle, sheep and swine, and to eradicate  disease amongst them, while in many important ways failing to provide for  thc health and lives of mothers and babies, upon whom depends the whole  future of the human race aud the citizenship of thc world.  Be it said to the everlasting credit of the Western Provinces of Canada  that the}- arc well in the lead in the adoption of thc most approved laws  ctzid methods of sanitation, inspection of food supplies, thc provision of  grants to needy expectant mothers, in thc payment of mothers' pensions, in  thc establishment of the most modern and best equipped hospitals, asylums  and sanatoriums. The scheme of union hospitals for groups of adjacent  municipalities is one of the finest things yet devised, because through this  plan, hospital facilities are being brought within reach .of thc people living  in. isolated rural communities. The expense iinposed on Provincial and  municipal treasuries is heavy; but it is money well spent, and will pay large  dividends in better health and a higher physical standard in the ycars to  come, not forgetting tlie hours of suffering prevented or lessened to the  people of today.  While recognizing- that the safeguarding and promotion of the public  health' and the prevention of disease is primarily a duty of Governments,  tiie fact is also recognized that no Governmental body can meet the Avhole  need. Furthermore, a Government can only move along advanced lines as  rapidly and to the extent that public opinion will support. Hence there  have been brought into being many voluntary organizations to act as assistants to Governments, and to undertake certain duties which can be more  efficiently carried on by such organizations than by a Department of Government. There arc, for example, the Society for thc Prevention of Tuberculosis, the Association of Mental Hygiene, thc Babies' Welfare organization, the Society for thc Prevention of Venereal Diseases, thc St. John Ara-  bula'nce Association, Children's Aid Societies, and the. Red Cross with its  peace-time programme, for "the improvement of health, the prevention of  diseases and thc mitigation of suffering throughout the world."  All these organizations are aids to Government. They carry on educational propaganda. They employ experts in their various branches.  Thcy render invaluable service in many ways and to an extent -which the  average man and woman little realizes. In addition to being aids to Gov-  ��������� eminent?, they are a spur to them, urging them on to greater reforms, and  educating the people lo demand thf-se reforms and to support Governments  :n carrying- them into effect.

Thc  demands   upon   a   mother's   health   are  many and  severe.      Her own health  trials and her children's welfare exact  heavy    toils,    -while    hurried    meals,  broken   rest   and  much  indoor  living  tend to weaken her constitution.

So very'quietly I, from  time to time, transferred portions of  my helping to the old man's plate,  and -though he was a fairly wizened  up old Indian when we sat down, by  midnight he looked more'like'a London  alderman.  About 2 p.m. I quietly slipped out  and* looking.* back at -the scene from  a few yards away it made a perfect  picture oi wild Indian life. The long  camp fires gave sufficient light to sec  thc*dancers who followed bhejanother  in Indian.file keeping time to the  tom-toms with a soft of jig step.  Most of the-men had nothing on but  a brecchclout, while the women were  .���������'naked from the waist up. Still their  brown skins .-' painted with various  ochres.did not strike one unpleasantly  as white people would do, iu fact they  were quite in harmony with their wild  surroundings,'-truly children of nature  and so-far unspoiled by civilization.

So making onc  grand round to all the various tepees,  collcc������ing some small debts, ieaving  some of my impedimenta to come  down later, 1 was uow saying goodbye. O-sow-usk was quite mournful,  also Ki-say-thCv-nish. My Indian  v Grandfather's address was quite  pathetic.  "My Grandson,';*' hc said, "you s1"0  young and I am old.

Some  days  ago  1   had  my  young  men  go  down the Carrot River, where stands  * a mighty spruce tree,- a landmark for  miles around,  and  this  they  made  a  lob-stick of in memory of^you."-  I  thanked .the old chap and really  felt, quite affected.      Then my newTer  friend, Ki-say-tho-nish, wished to establish relationship, so called mc his  Cha-Cha-Wbw.Z.   This was: iN mutual  name between us and meant that wc  were so related by -our children having intermarried.       Remarkable   that  an obscure  tribe of Indians  like the  Crees would have a special name for  . a relationship  which  cannot bc  stated concisely in   English.       It is a'so  remarkable to say. that this fictitious  relationship was of considerable bene-  ,fit to mc many years after, but,  that  as    Kipling    says,   "that    is    another  etory."  It was a spring of very high water  and my little bark canoe was loaded  down    well    to    the    gunwales,    but  thanks to careful pitching, tight as a  bottle.     The Indians had warned me  not to descend thc Carrot too far for  fear of meeting drowned land. Away  I went, waving my paddle in a last  1   was   blessed   with  very little at that time, and.thought,  oh,  J. will   soon   come   to   high   land  again,  so  on   I  paddled.       Finally * it  was    evening    and    my    legs    w-ere  cramped enough in the narrow canoe,  so water or not I determined to land  and make a stage for the night. - Selecting a good spot, I paddled close  to  thc wooded bank.      Planting my  paddle firmly in the mud"I cautiously  put out one foot, deeper and deeper  until it  rested  on  thc bottom,  then,  leaning my weight on it I was going  to draw my other leg after it.      One  had  to bc  cautious,  as  a small  bark  canoe is a ticklish thing to get out of.  Alas, the ground gave way.      I was  too close to the edge of the bank and  down  I  went "to   thc bottom   of  the  Carrot   River,   swallowing   mud   and  water,   quite   forgetting  that   I   could  swim like a jackfish.     The kick I had  given, sent the little canoe flying out  in the river, but when I ..reached the  surface   a   few   strokes   captured   thc  craft and we landed    where    I    had  marked some  good crotches    for "* a  stage.       Then   followed   an   hour  or  two of hard work, and finally everything was snug for the night.

Springing out  of bed I found myself waist deep in  water,and gradually realized my surroundings and strange camping place.  On investigating I found traces showing that an old beaver had been examining his   strange    neighbor    and  suddenly    catching    the dreaded human  scent,  dived  and hit  the "water  a tremendous thump with his tail.

At  last   I   reached   the  river and she was    sure    enough    in  flood,   full   of   the   usual   drift   wood.  Looking   down   towards   Thc   Pas   it  only showed as a speck of dry land.

Hc would  look  up  at my  tiny craft  then away again, and I knew it was  thc Chief and that hc was half afraid  to look, for it was  really dangerous  enough as a touch of the drifting logs  would have  sent me  to  thc  bottom.  Finally  I  swept into  thc  Pas  River,  he grasping thc bow of the canoe and  exclaimed: "Thank God you are home  safely.

The 103rd Annual General Meeting  of the Shareholders of the Bank of  Montreal was held on Monday, December 6tlr, at the Bank's Headquarters. Thc President, Sir Vincent Meredith, Bart., occupied the chair, and presented the annual report of the Directors.  Before moving thc adoption of the  report, Sir Vincent Meredith gave a  comprehensive review of the economic situation. During the year, he  said, an overwhelming demand for  credit had taxed resources to the utmost. It had been difficult to make  men who had grown accustomed to  high prices recognize , the fact that  economic conditions, which no artificial means can alter, alone are the  cause of price decline. "The demand  for intervention* through* Government  control is still insistent in some quarters," he said. "Canada alone cannot  control world-wide conditions, and it  is idle to turn to the Government for  relief from falling prices. This applies  to wheat as well as to other commodities." ���������������������������-���������.*���������  Summing up, he said: "Thc situation  in Canada at present, as I view it, is  that while there does not appear to be  ��������� Ottawa.���������The first conference between federal and western minister  on the vexed question of the control  of natural resources by the prairie  provinces was an interesting > discussion" but ���������unprodueitive oi any definite  result. ���������  The fact 'that'."western provincial  interests are not identical presents  somewhat of a difficulty. One western premier expressed the belief that  it may--take another five years to  settle- thc question and while this,  may be an exaggeration it indicates  that a long road has yet to be traveled before the end is reached. The  disagreeable part of the question is  that, like the tariff and the freight  rates question, territorial consideration of east and west cut a figure.  The Government of Manitoba submitted a lengthy memorandum of its  claims but Saskatchewan and Alberta  did not do <.s6,i'though their views, are  along the same lines. - They will put  their case in writing alsoi'"^  Briefly'; stated/- what the ^provinces  ask is "'the -^transfer to them of their  natural 'resources and" in addition  something by., way of annual allowance for resources alienated for the  general advantage of Canada. The  suggestion was made that some accounting should take place to determine the amount of such compensation.  The cotirsc proposed by the federal  ministers was that the prairie ������������������provinces should abate a portion of their  demands' of subsidy in lieu of lands  under the autonomy terms. Unless  this was done thcy. held out little  hope nor are thcy in a position to say  as yet that, even if the^deman'ds were  reduced, the compensation; would be  "granted. It is a matter upon which  Parliament will have to be consulted.  Want School Teachers  Allies to Control Dardanelles  Children of Members of Air Force at  Camp Borden Need Instruction.
