F. Dalamore, who is at present located nt Trail, was a week-end visitor  with old Lister friends.  Owing to a combination of bad  weather and bad roads the December  meeting of the United Farm* re, called  for Friday last, had to be cancelled.  Saturday's meeting of the Ladies*  Auxiliary of the G.W.V.A. was also  also rather poorly attended due to tbe  same adverse circumstances.  The children particularly ave reminded of the big Christmas entertainment on Wednesday evening next  at the schoolhouse. which is arranged  especially for the youngsters���������and all  of them���������aud will consist of a concert  programme, a Christmas tree, on  which there will.be a Rift for every  child"in the -camp,,,and will close with  a supper for the children.  Rev. J. S. Mahood will conduct the  first baptismal service in the camp on  Sundav 'afternoon' at 3.50 at the  schoolhouse, when it is expected some  half dozen children will be christened.  Fred Smith jolt Lethbridge, Alta..  postoffice inspector for^-this district,  was here on a������ official visit last week;  and found Postmistress Chalroer^ conducting the office in splendid fashion  is every dstail. Before leaving Mr.  Smith'issued the neccessary permit too*  . have Lister a money order issuing  office.  The meeting of the Literary, and  Dramatic 'Society on Wednesday of  last week took the fprmof an elocutionary contest for both tbe adpft^ftdf  younger members, and tbe pri&igHfeere  -~~         ...- .���������,,������..ii������   -,.  awarded H.

A gang twelve men and a team arc  at work now clearing a 40-foot road  which will give a "highway along the  Alexander limit almost to Porthiil,  the end of the new bit of road being  at the back of tbe W.

Ownership  of Natural Resources  When lhc British Crown Colonies of Upper and Lower Canada (or Ontario and Quebec as vve know them today), and Nova Scotia and Ne\y  Brunswick united to form the Dominion of Canada they were autonomous  units enjoying ownership of their public domain and control over their  customs, postal and other services. When they decided to enter the Canadian confederation Ihcy agreed to surrender to the Federal authority control and jurisdiction ovcr the Customs, Post Office and certain other public  services, but thcy insisted on retaining: ownership and control of the public  domain, that is, the lands, forests and' mines. .  Later, when the Crown Colony of British Columbia decided to join thc  confederation it likewise relinquished certain of its powers and services to  thc Federal body, but retained ownership and control of its public domain  and natural resources. It also bargained that certain things should tie  done, as, for example, that a transcontinental railway should be built connecting B.ritlsh. Columbia with the Eastern-Provinces.  The construction of this railway across what is' now Eastern Canada,  but which wa.s then the property of .the Hudson Bay Company, led to the  ���������purchase by Gmada of the lands owned by that Company. In course of  time and with increasing settlement it was decided to create, the Province  of Manitoba out of a portion of this western* territory. In entering the Do-.j  minion confederation as a Province, Manitoba came in as the creation of  the Dominion Parliament, not as a previously established Crown Colony"  like the other Provinces. It had no Customs or Postal services to relinquish, n-oj* did it enjoy ownership of lands which it'could decline to give up.  Consequently, in creating Manitoba a Province the Dominion Parliament  . did not provide that it should be gifen full ownership and control of its  natural resources. The Dominion kept what it had hitherto owned. And  when Alberta and Saskatchewan were created Provinces in 1905, the. same  policy was followed.  *s Few people question the legal right oi the Dominion Parliament to  retain ownership of these natural resources, but the practically unanimous  opinion of the West is that by so doing Parliament violated the spirit of  the Confederation pact and ignored the cardinal principle upon which' Confederation rests. The Canadian confederation is supposed to be a union,  or federation, of Provinces each enjoying equal rights, powers, responsibilities and privileges; in a word, all are supposed to be on a, basis of equality.  It is self-evident, however, that if some Provinces own and control their  natural resources and derive large revenues therefrom, while, other Provinces are denied such ownership and control and the revenues from, the  natural resources within their bounds go into the Dominion treasury to be  shared equally by ail Provinces, there-is rank inequality. Provinces owning their resources-not only obtain all thc resultant revenues, but thcy also  get a share from the resources of the other Provinces who do not enjoy  such ownership.   ,  In justification for the policy of Dominion retention of ownership and  control of the natural resources of the West it was urged that it was in the  national interests that these lands should be disposed of as free homesteads,  and that inasmuch as thc encouragement of immigration was & Federal  matter, it was essential to the success of any immigration'policy that control of the homestead iands should be vested in the same authority; It was  argued that if the Provinces owned the lands they would be compelled to  administer them for revenue producing purposes rather than to'encourage  settlement.  Furthermore, it was contended, the Dominion Parliament was spending huge sums of money annually for immigration* purposes solely for the,  purpose of settling the vacant lands of the West, but'that no such service  was maintained to add population  lo thc East.  , Whatever force there may havc been in these arguments at the time,  it has al! been dissipated now, and has been for some years past. The  Immigration service' of the Dominion Government is exerting itself just  as it is to bring settlers to the Western which do not own their lands.  as it is to bring settlers to ihe Western which do no own their lands.  Free homestead lands arc r.ow practically a thing of the past, and control  ot tbe lands remaining, the forest and thc mines, is not necessary to the success of ths Federal iminigr.Mion policy.  ..,*** Dominion today is administering tlie natural resources  v-*u'.**-pr,;,dnci:u,r purposes, nnd thc Federal treasury is  ���������rd'y by a substantia! surplus of revenue from expendi-  ���������p resources of the West,  ;? th;:*.:  there ir, not  equality in status among* the Prov-  ', ar-d r.~ a cc.-nsequence there is a weakness in thc bond  The We.-uer:*   !':-���������.,vinces ave ri-stnctod in their revenues,  is r :'iar'-'c d, raid an :mnecessary, foolish and even dangcr-  rcse-r.tment is aroused in thr West against the .East because  Rumania Now  As Large as Italy  Area Is 105,000 Square Miles, Population 15,000,000.  Rumania" -epi'erges from :. the war  enlarged^ in ;^area^ahd in population.  By the' a\yard^f Bessarabia, confirmr  cd by t^ie Allies Tn a treaty signed in  Paris on October 28, she gains territory which makes her equal to Italy  in size; with a population of more  than 15,000,000. '    r ���������  No other, active belligerent in the  war against ���������Germany; has varied so  much in extent, says the; New York  Herald. Condemned by thc treaty  of Bucharest to lose half her territory, she has not only regained her  previous domain, but has seen it successively enlarged by the addition of  Transylvania, Bkowina, part of the  banat of Temesvar, and, nowy-'Bessa-  rabia.  This makes an area of eight times  as large as Alsace-Lorraincc, with a  population five times that of the restored French provinces. Before the  war Rumania's area wTas 53,000 square  mile, and her population 7,500,000.  Now her area is 105,000 square miles  and her population is' more than  doubled.  A TONIC FOR THE NERVES  Big Drop in Meat Export!  ��������������������������� ��������������������������� ~* ���������  The Decrease--Represents a Value of  - "��������� ��������� Over $48,000,000.  Exports of meat from Canada for  the year eliding October, show a de-'  crease compared witii lasr year of the  lai-fee total?of 127,#9,500 "lbs. The  "decrease represents a vtflue of over  $4.8,000,000 on the year's-'trade. - The  export figures for two years, reported by the Dominion Burean of Si-ut-  istics, are given as follows: Bacon  and ham, 1919, 208,906,038 lbs., 1920,  14S,674,000 lbs.; pork, 1919, 18.002.313  lbs., 1920, 4,851,200 lbs.'; beef, 1919,  129,944,411 lbs., 1920, 85,916,000 lbs.;  canned meats, 1919, 11,398,393 lbs.,  1920, 980,458 lbs.  There was an offset of rather less  than a million dollars in the increase,  of "other meats" exported, a classification that includes game and  poultry^  BLED TO DEATH  Tried to trim a wart with a razor  and severed an artery. The* only  wart cure is "Putnam's," which removes, warts, corns, callouses in rgie  day. Insist on getting Putnam's  Corn and \Vart Extractor, it's the  best, 25c at all dealers.  Absence of horns on Aberdeen-Angus and Galloway cattle is due entirely to selective breeding.  The   Only   Real   Nerve   Tonic   is   a  Good Supply of Rich," Red  Blood.  "If people would only attend to  their blood, instead of worrying  themselves ill," said an eminent  nerve specialist; "we doctors vvould  not see our consulting rooms crowded with nervous wrecks. More -people suffer from worry than anything  else.". %  The sort of thing which the specialist spoke of is the nervous rundown  condition caused by overwork and  the many anxieties of to-day. Sufferers find themselves tired, low-  spirited and unable to keep their  minds on anything. Any sudden  noise hurt3 like a blew. They are  full of groundless fears, and do not  sleep well at night. Headaches and  other nerve pains are part of the  misery, and it all comes from starved  nerves.  Doctoring the nerves with poisonous sedatives is a terrible mistake.  The only real nerve tonic is a good  supply of rich, red blood. ...Therefore  to relieve nervousness and run-down  [health Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  should be taken. These pills make  new, rich blood, which strengthens  the nerves, improves the appetite,  gives new strength and spirits, and  makes hitherto despondent people1  bright and cheerful. If you arc at  all "out of sorts" vou should begin  taking Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.  You can get these pills through  any dealer in medicine, or by mail at  50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville, Ont.  Decline of the Parlor.  One of the large manufacturing  companies of thc United States is engaged in the construction of a great  number of houses for its employees,  and .while there are many novel features in the way of making conveniences, the most striking thing about,  the homes is the total absence of the  usual parlor.

"The moose is by far. the most  plentiful of bur* big game 'animals"  writes the chief game warden of Alberta in his annual'report, and. this  despite the fact that nimrods annually  account for scores and perhaps hundreds of big fellows. Throughout  the Dominion, it is estimated that  from 1.000 to 1,500 moose are killed  annually, but the moose is by no  means following the trail of the buf-'"  falo to extinction.

On  .our poor dogs who had been on~Very   reaching home I found everything in  scant rations for some time.    I heard  that the Ki-say-the-nish band were in  good order, and on counting up our  furs  I finally decided to send Pierre  and camping along a small river sonic | back, to Thc Pas with all" returns of  fifteen,miles away, busy gathering in  the egg -harvest, and also 'catching  mink and muskrat. When I told  Pierre wc would start in a day or two  for these Indians, I noted hc was  very sulky, but: this- I passed over.  Our large canoe was just getting the  finishing touches and was about read}*-  for the gum. This is applied by the  squaws, and I amused myself "watching   them.       Finally  vve  had  a  small  trade, and also an official letter to the  Chief telling him the man was no  more use to mc, and I would prefer,  now that I was on "friendly terms with  both bands of Indians, to remain  alone for the balance of the spring.  Pierre duly started and not in the best  of humors. 1 visited the nearby  camps, collected some small debts  and picked up a good deal more fu .  The next excitement was an Indian.  placing the rest of the goods in  charge of O-sow-usk, away we went  one fine morning, I in thc bow with  my gun ready for anything in thc  shape of game. For, my dear reader,  we had no ample store of provisions  to draw on, but simply some tea and  sugar with a very little flour for..em-  ergencies, so the task of supplying  the larder was a daily one.  The Carrot River expands here to  Rcd-Mud-Lake, so-called from a fine  red clay  found on its shores.      Also  ash and elm trees are found here, the  only place I  have seen them in Saskatchewan.    We made straight across  the middle of the lake, and just about  half-way across the canoe was whirled   round   and   found   myself   facing  homewards.       "What   is   the   matter  Pierre?"   i   askcdA      "1   won't   go   to  those   Indians.      They  are  bad,  and  will poison us.both.      We are going  back."       Jumping   round   and   facing  Master  Pierre   I   grabbed    the   .gunwales, rocked the canoe violently and  took in about a buck* t of water. Then  in a loud voice I said: "Turn round,  you   old   scamp,   unless   you   want   to  swim ashore,"-and  in  two  minutes   I  had   thev old   man   at   my   mercy, .for  he could not swim and .was nervous  in a canoe. I happened to be brought  up in   Lakcfield  (close  to" Petirboro)  where  the   famous canoes  originated,  and part of our boyish phasures was  testing the various models turned out  by honest Tom Gordon of Lakcfjeld,  who   was' undoubtedly   the   inventor.  Pierre was now bowsman and a very  quiet     and     obedint   one.       After  a  pleasant paddle..- wc sighted the Indian  camps, all. moose skin  teepees  I  noted.

Running our    canoe    up  thc     little     creek,     we   landed   right  amongst them, and as thc custom is,  I   went���������*. to  shake  hands  with   the   Indians.      Nothing  doing���������they  simply  paid no attention   to us.       No-swells,  in the upper un_jhousand could have  treated us with more sil nt contempt  t,han    these    unlettered    savages.      1  walked towards the canoe,.and  Pierre  hissed  out, "1   told  you so.       Worse  thing will happen yet."     "Quiet, you  dog," was my re ply.      Our chilly re-  Ce ption   was   made   worse   by   noting  black  Daniel standing back of one of  the  groups and  smiling  to  think  O-  gc-mas-es wi.s being turned down, On  passing   through   the  camps   I   noted  goint' of the olilor women scraping the  meat and  fat oil some  recently ki'l-  ed   bear  skins,  and   further  on   were  groups  of   thc  younger   w-om-'n   who  gave tne the first kindly glances I had  received.      1   opened   some    of    our  bales and took a few of the._ choicest  beads and some other fancy articles,  nnd   tackled   thc   girls   to   buy.       As  these   were   the   very   latest   patterns  In savngedom, buy they did, evidently to the disgust of their elders. Aid-  , cd by my broken Crcc, which always  brought   a   smile,   I   started   a   small  trade,  which  spread and before bed-  " time I  had,taken in n  good haul or  fur   and   thoroughly   broken   the   ire.  much to the disgust of our opponent  Daniel.  Pierre and I slept under our canoe  that night nnd next morning wc were  kept busy trading, so .so-Gn disposed  of the bu'k of our goods. I decided to return to our _main camp, but  fir9t arranged a definite appointment  with    Ki-say-the-nish,    saying    that  Axon.  c       -T3L.      \~-VQj."SiV       JL O  Farmers    Party  T -~ZJ-  Third Parliamentary Group in  the House of Commons makes  Official Appearance.  trading    outfit packed  in  bales,  and ; feast to which I received a special invitation.

In  the meantime-hunters had to-kill all  game possible .as^there was no doubt  every    one    would   attend.      Finally,  O-sow-usk moved camp (mine included) and we pitched again on the new  community  site.      The  name  of  the  celebration was the Goose Dance, and  a large oval enclosure was formed by  sticking  young  green   spruce   in   the  ground at a slant inwards, about five  feet iii height.      At one end was an  elevated stage, and the    whole    oval  was open to the sky.     The feast was  ���������to start between four and five in  the  a'fternopn, weather permitting. Down  the  centre  of  the  enclosure  were  a  row of camp fires.      At last the evening arrived, and'sticking close tp O-  sow-usk, away we went, and from all  sides came "the men, women and children, each carrying a dish and a" knife  and     spoon.       1     had  a  native-made  wooden bowl, a wood spoon and  my  large sheath knife, my old companion  the same.      We duly enter-d the ring  and were shown to special scats near  the stage (on  the ground of course),  and here we sat cross-legged waiting  for the ceremonies^to begin.  At last all werevseated and four of  the older men, painted and feathered,  came  in   with   -four     long     stemmed  stone* pipes.

C. Dominion* member is Hi., F.  Green, the:West.Kootenay representative.    All  along  there  has.  been a suspicion that   Mr. Green  will gradxiate into the senate in  due course, while only last month  the death of A. S. Goodeve left a  vacancy in the Dominion Railway  Commission that is supposed to  be the property of art appointee  from British Columbia;-" Follow;-;  ing Mr.  Goodeve's demise   came  the   death   of   Senator   Shatford,  Avhich makes-two senate vacancies Avhich must be filled -from.  this province;   Coast papers have  also figured-Mr. Green as due to  succeed Mr; Goodeve on the railway board.--Locally the impression is that Mr. Green will go to  the  senate^-but ; not  until  after  the 1921 session of the Dominion  house.        _____   Locally.; as well as provincially  December 22ncTis looked forward  to with a great deal of. interest.  Wednesday .next is the day that  the absentee .vote in the late provincial election will be counted,  and there are at least half a dozen  seats in which this delayed count  may change the present standing  of the two old parties ��������� though  not so decisively as to~endanger  the safety of the- Oliver government.    While ;at this end of  the  Kaslo riding the ballots ..yet to be  counted are not likely.to materially reduce or enlarge Col. Lister's  majority, yet at the north end the  Liberals are quite confident   the  final count will bring about the  return of John Keen by a lead  that will effectively obviate the  necessity of any judical recount.  Next to Kaslo chief interest centres in Cranbrook, .where HHon. J.  H: King has a lead of only 21 over  T. D.^Caven, and the Cranbrook  Tories are just'as confident as the  Kaslo Grits    that   Wednesday's  count will furnish them sufficient  excuse for a celebration on a-more  extensive scale than has been the  custom   for    many    years    past.  Should the number of "the. absentee vote indicate that the fellow  away from home cares little for  the privilege thus extended him  it is to be hoped an amendment to  thc Election A(jt will provide for  the elimination   of  the   absentee  voting feature.  If Charles Dickens were alive  today  he   would  doubtless  feel  called upon to revise the theory  expounded in one of his tales concerning the youth who had swallowed a shilling and after homemade remedies and local medical  skill had failed to recover the two  bits an. elderly lady advised sending the boy to the Wesleyan bazaar, solemnly assuring that if tho  Methodists couldn't get the money  out of tho youngster the case was  certainly hopeless.   In the matter  of gathering in the elusive coin of  the   realm   local   Anglicans   and  Presbyterians have showed themselves equally well skilled as their  Methodist   rivals.   A   couple   of  weeks ago Christ Church Ladies'  Guild bazaar reached high water  mark with a  net   intake   of   at  least $225, and last Saturday tho  IVi-'sbyteriniiN went ovor tho top  by accounting-for nn afternoon's  receipts of about $250.    And in  neither instance wiih it a case of a  fool and his money are soon parted.    If Premier Moighen.had   a  hull' dozen Valley church organization ladies iu  his cabinet the  matter of securing the necessary  revenue to wipe out the national  debt would be a mere detail.   Incidentally,   these   bazaars  surely  demonstrate   that   there .is, still  .some money in the Valley.  TO  SAVE   IS   EASY  Saving is a most beneficial habit, and an easy  one to acauire.

This scheme, which was first proposed in 1914, and which has from  time to time been, brought before  public notice, has at last come to  an issue by the receipt of a plan  and estimates from the water  rights department.  The experience of the last three  years has shown the urgent necessity of something being done to obviate the annual loss occasioned  the ranchers and the Valley generally by the lock of anything like an  adequate rainfall.  With the report now before the  public it is to bc hoped that a careful study of the project will be undertaken and either this or some  -other scheme adopted which will  meet the requirements of the Valley! generally.  The present plan of irrigation  embraces all the cultivated lands  below Goat Mountain, extending  from Erickson to Alice Siding  north of Goat River, with the exception of 300 acres already under  irrigation by the Erickson Water  Users' Community. These, lands  cover a  gross area of 2890, acres,  2352 "  , The intake is at a point on Ar  row Creek, 3f miles beyond Erickson, and the pipe line consisting of  reinforctd concrete with stave pipe  laterals, follows a gravity line along  the foot of Goat Mountain.  From the top af Crawford's hill  a pipe line would run to a point below the town from which a town  water supply could be had and an  electric power station established  giving approximately 260 horse  power.  The cost of the scheme at present  cost of labor and materiai is estimated at $215,000; but this would  probably be much io wer as prices  fall. The cost to irrigators on all  the lands scheduled would be $77  an aere, or $7.70 on annual pay-  menrs. '  To give some idea of the present  position as regards rainfall during  the growing season, and the neces  sity of supplementing it by irrigation, a return is given below of the  average rainfall from 1913-1919,  during the growing season���������-April-  September.  In regard to these returns it  should be borne in mind that a  rainfall of anything under half an  inch on dry cnltinated land is entirely   lost    by   evaporation,   and  doesn't reach the subsoil at all, and  it will be found on examination in  detail that nearly all the summer  precipitation is iu quantities of half  an inch or under,  If the Valley under these adverse  conditions has been able to produce  all that it has done what would it-  Kitchener having a thriving association of his own it was decided to write  and ask tnem to.name their regresent-  ative to act on the Valley 91-ga nidation exeeutive.

Then he shook himself, squared his shoulders, and drew  himself  away .from  memories   which  pulled him back and down.  Hc would meet Edna Marsh as he  had met Timberlev.      Let her think  not so strong as his will, and he  woujd have fought it and beaten it, he  knew, had fate not stacked thc cards  against him. .  Then had come the theft of the examination    papers,    his disgrace and  expulsion     from     college. -     Hc  had  ; stood      alone���������outside.       Not      one  j friend,  not   one   hope.       And  like   a  ! wounded  thing,   he   had  crept-away.  j Hidden in an isolated part of the city,  he had given himself up to thc drug  . completelj".       Then,  just  before  the  . end, something had"called him, and he  had . come  here.  Dorkin looked about him. His  eyes were humid, his hands when he  unclasped them from about his knees,  trembled.      A deadly longing, for the  SIMPLE AS A.B.C.

Dorkin drew . one of the paws to  him, and examined its long, knife-like  claws, and his face grew serious.  "I don't know as it's wise to let you  roam at large this way, oid cat," he  told her, letting go the paw and stroking her yellow nose.  She purred hoarsely, and lay, mouth  half open, gazing up at him from amber slits of eyes. Then, as though  she discerned that' something was  troubling this one being in the world  which her wild heart had learned to  trust, she sat up and licked the hands  locked about liis. knees.  "Where did you leave, your kittens,  Lulu?" he asked.  She reared up, her paws on his  knees, and shoved her moist nose -in  his ear. He put his arm around her  and patted her sidc._ -  "Please don't 'evade the question.  Queen Lulu," he insisted; "where are  your kittens?"  But thc big cat, in answer, simply  closed her sharp teeth on.his felt hat  and bounding clown, 1ay, twitching  hei-f short tair, and daring Ivm to chase  her.  Just here, from a copse on thc left,  came a faint sound of distress, or  loneliness, and, dropping the hat,  Lulu, bounded into the thicket. A  few minutes later. Dorkin saw her  leading h *r four kittens across a little  glade, a hundred yards distant.  Again his gaze wandered to the far  picture of the hills, valleys and forest,  far beneath him. Perhaps, after all,  he was laying claim to too much, he  thought, bitterly. What right had hc  to resent the coming of others, even  although they did bring him unhappy  memories of a world in which hope,  for him, had been slain? Timberley,  he felt, wonld harm him further if he  could. Had he not admittced as  much? Well, he could tight a man,  but how about this girl, this Edna  Marsh ?  He wondered what she would say  when she learned that the man she  had seen go down, a social and moral  wreck, and Dork n. the woodsman,  were one���������what  would  she say?  The perspiration sprang out on his  brow. Well, what could she say?  She would, of course, think him a  coward.

Of course she heii ved him a quitter.  But  why was .-he h'.'re?  He   reen! led   his   first   meeting   with  Edna    Marsh.        I:   was   at   a    Ru-rby  what she might.  Slowly hc made "his way across the  glade, through the hickory grove to  the*, cabin. Passing around the cabin,  he came upon her.  .She was seated in a low, rustic  cfrair, looking down the path to the  lake, on which the coot and teal were  weaving brown and blue-grey patterns, as thcy fed.  So engrossed was she in the view,  that she did not hear his step.      IJe  stood,  gravely  surveying her,  adm-r-  ing the dull gold of her hair, the cx-  i quisite coloring  of her check.      She  ' was very beautiful, hc told himself.  "Miss Marsh?" he said.  At the sound of his voice, she leaped to her feet.  "I'm Dorkin," he explained, as. her  wide eyes opened wider, and gazed up  into his face.  Her own face had gone pale. She  held out a slim gloved hand, and hc  held it in his a moment while hc.  said:���������  "Welcome to Hardwoods Preserve'!  You must be tired after the long  tramp across the Portage. If-you'll  excuse me, I'll step inside and have  Mrs. LaPeer prepare some refreshments. By the way," as he turned  towards the door, "Danny spoke of  Mr. Washburn and your uncle beirig  here. I presume thcy arc down with  LaPeer, looking ovcr the grounds?"  "Yes, they���������" She hesitated,  looking up* at his face again.  He smiled, then immediately his  face grew grave as he noted her lip  tremble;  "Of course you have recognized  mc," he said. "Yes, I'm Stanley."  Hc could, not help thc cynic-'sm creeping into his voice. "But" he added  quickly, "up here, I am Dorkin. It  was my mother's name, you know. I  didn't care to take anything from that  past, back yonder."  "No," she whispered, "no, of course  not. Would you mind if I sat down  again, Mr. Dorkin? Thc walk has  tired   me   more   than   I   thought."  "Wait." He stepped into th- cab;n  and returned with* a big rough oaken  chair, the back and seat of which were  composed of tanu- d bearskin "You  will find this more comfortrble," he  told her.      "Please try it."  Thc girl sank dawn into his comfortable depths, with a sigh. "Oh,  it's rest itself!" she exclaimed.  gn imps e-d "  er   an  Later. ,  his co'.]  a''y     in  tho'i-j-!*:  v.-���������aril* :  had  .' ^.! 0  -rod'  i-r.r  c~.ii:  i:h   t!  ;>.-*. rtj,  en:  -,:���������-;.

The kind  of a "boy .who can do little things for  you and whistle and fly kites and be  generally nice-���������until it comes to eating. And this boy's diet is so limited that it is hard work to. cook-for  him. '.'*:  Sick? Not-a bit of"it.* But the  poor boy has bec/i permitted to grow  used to eating just a. few of* the  more expensive foods. Arid no. matter how tasty may be some of thc  cheaper dishes nor how attractively  you prepare them; the boy is polite  but quite firm in his refusal to  much as  try  them.  And the boy is worth writing about  because there are so many fltore of  him. And the boy and girl of his  kind., is grown up, the boarder who  picks the boarding house charging a  fair board and then grumbles because  so many things are served that are  "uneatable." -;/ .  And the boy. grpwn is the unhappy  traveler who, because he cannot get  the few foods he knew at home, decries    the    land  of' milk and  honey.  Sometimes  this  boy,  grown,  expects  steaks -and chops from his wife daily  when  he. provides  only  a beef-stew  incc-mc.
