Mr. and Mrs. Ben Whitesides, are  leaving this week for Fernie, where7  they will spend a well-earned two-  weeks' holidey with friends -in that  city,.  An ante room has lately been built  ou to the school, which makes things  more convenient both for educational  and social purposes.  While Mayor Daly's name does not  appear in the list of these receiving  birthday honors at the hand of King  George, the mayor was by no means  overlooked by the higher-ups. Among  the seasonable greetings received by  Mr. Daly was a wire from Vice-Peesi-  dent Hall of the C.P.R. The mayor is  speedily returning to his old time  vigor aft-ei- quite a~ long and serious  illness.  ijen   WhiteMdes    presided   at  school  concert - and   Christmas  entertainment  'on    December  ^stsu,  which" function attracted a large attendance of .both ch!luE-eh auu parents.  >      VI  22\  the  4  If a fine turnout of old members  along with several others who readily  planked down their $2 to join np,  coupled with plenty of enthusiasm,  count for anvthing, Erickson local of  the United Fatmers of British Columbia would appear to have a very useful  year ahead of them. The above  characteristics were much to the fore  at the annual meeting on Tuesday  uight. which was presided over by  President W. G. Littlejohn, the most  interesting feature of which was the  election of officers for the ensuing year  and which resulted in the re-election  of Mr. Littlejohn as president, and a  board of directors consisting of W.

It is probable the first of these social  evenings will take the form of musical  numbers, eards and a little dancing as  a closing feature.   An  effort will be  made to get in a few outside speakers  to deliver addresses, the iirst of which  will  be a practical horticultural talk.

Farmers  Having explained in last week's article how thc whole subject of Bank  ing is a matter coming solely within the. jurisdiction of the Dominion Government and Parliament, and how futile are those demands which call for  action by Provincial Legislatures,'attention may well be devoted to a brief  consideration of some criticisms now being? urged against Canada's existing  Banking System and Bank Management in general.  Generality being the easiest is usually the most employed form of criticism, and more particularly is this true as regafds the periodical attacks  levelled at the Canadian banking system. Hardly ever does a self-styled  critic on this topic reveal a reasonably accurate elementary understanding  of his subject, or evince au attempt at portraying plain truth and justice.  Recently a misleading and unfair article of this calibre found its way  into print. in tSiis it was* insinuated that hardship was being inflicted on  farmers this fall through thc refusal of some banks tcTgrant renewals of  notes where these were unavoidably necessitated by circumstances, that unreasonable promises of payment had been extracted under pressure from  many customers and that the practice was-being followed very generally of  employing what were described as "clean-up men" as Managers in districts  where the financial situation was a difficult one. .  It is well understood in" banking circles that there,arc uncertainties and  contingencies such as the pressure of important work while the season is  favorable, inclement weather, grain blockades and traffic congestions which  inevitably regulate and determine the marketing of grain and livestock.  Where such good reasons are known or can be shown to -exist, extensions  of banking obligations.are necessities, accepted as such, and invariably given to farmers without demur or question. Why should the disgruntle-  ment.of the exception, who in all likelihood, if the circumstances were  The Lure of a Land .  By the Sea  with Canadian Mortgage Association  and the J. H.

NEW    VICE - PRESIDENT  Union Bank of Canada  W. R. ALLAN, prominent Westerner, who has been elected Vice-  President of the Union Bank of Canada, is senior member of the firm, of  Allan, Kijlaxn and McKay, Winnipeg,  .

Mr.    Allan    is    associated  ation in defiance of advice to the contrary, placed himself in a difficult and  dangerous position, either by deserving of consideration equal to that merited by his more prudent and businesslike neighbor or bs made the test for  a general denunciation of banking practice?      In such a* case where  thc  man's crop is sadly short of satisfying his commitments, his creditors Naturally are all clamoring for payment and nothing but shortsightedness.or business incompetence could prevent his bank from doing what it reasonably  can to ensure that its claim is not neglected.     As a general thing unless  some pressure is brought to bear the Bank'ajoan is thc last to receive any  consideration.      In common fairness, therefore, the 'Banks should not be  blamed for unfortunate crisis which invariably are not of their making and  a distinction should in justice be drawn between deserving and undeserving  cases.  As regards the charge that farmers have been under pressure to make  impossible promises of payment and have been labelled as liars when hot  fulfilled, this is almost too groundless and radical a statement to call for  notice.     What object or benefit could possibly be gained by-such an unjust  and absurd practice, and under .existing keen banking competition how could  an outrage of that description be perpetrated without incalculable damage  and loss of business resulting to any institution which did so?      There is  no course of action without its intent, and it is impossible to see any in this  allegation.  The "clean-up man'-' is also a creation of a fertile or prejudiced imagination.     "Good Bank Managers, who by reason of humanity and fair dealing  have bifilt up good sound custom for their institutions," certainly are not  removed and replaced as it has been claimed for exactly that cause. Such  ������ practice would be nothing else than financial suicide. Bank Managers  are no more perfect as a class than any other and there must of necessity  b*e instances where through vone cause or another they lose grip and run  riot in their crediting. Naturally a number of the residents in any community so served unconsciously gain inflated and distorted ideas of their  proper claims to credit. 'Hie unfortunate successor to such a type of  Manager who endeavors to bring the misguided back to their senses, and  incidentally his Branch business down to a sounder basis, naturally incurs  some antipathy and ill-will, but no more is done in such cases than any one*.  of thc dissatisfied few would instruct to be done in connection with his own  business, if he found it necessary to replace a responsible employee who had  been lax in his crediting or otherwise failed in his trust.  Another charge sometimes made is that thc banks withhold their support in times of financial stress, pestilence and hardship. Docs it ever occur to thc casual critic that the banks' available loan resources are regulated  entirely by thc extent of their deposits and also the state of liquidity of  their existing loans? It is just at such times that the most severe' drain is  made upon deposits and that outstanding loans arc most poorly-met. It  natus-ally follows, therefore.that on occasions of the kind there must be  some curtailment in .credit and that there cannot be any available money as  is often unreasonably expected for illegitimate and highly speculative business purposes. It can be honestly said, however, that even at such times  tiha farmers suffer less and arc subject to smaller inconvenience than any  other class of business men. The importance of thc western crop to thc.  country i.= appreciated and llic costs of growing and marketing it arc in-  Visit the Pacific Coast This Winter  and Enjoy Life in the Open.

Estimated That Total Will Reach  $18,225,520 For End of Last Year.  The amount of wealth broughfinto  Canada in the form of cash and settlers' effects by immigrants from the  United States during the eleven  months .ending November 30, was  $17,519,033. If the record for December is equal to last, the total for the  year 1920 will be $18,225,520.    '  In 1919 the total wealth brought in  by the 52,064 persons from across  the border was 18,419,406. If the  December immigration equal that of  last year, the total immigration this  year will be 48,905. The average}  wealth of the immigrants per head  for 1919 was $353.76, and for the  past year it will be a little greater,  amounting to about $372 per head.  et i y* ������ ik@  CAftlEft'S  S.IIU0  Llvesr  fiVuli*   today  trov Me will      .   cease.

One  instance comes back to nie while  writing. Essa-wa-pum-o, an elderly  Saulteaux, was my steady friend for  many years and it was a real grief to  hear of his death in the spring of 1919.  A fine hunter, his specialty was bears,  especially finding their dens in winter.'. He did not disclose his methods, but I always insisted that he  smelt them out, much to the old man's  amusement.       .  On one occasion in March of a long  " steady winter, word came in that thcy  were very short of food at his camp  some   thirty   miles  to   the  southeast.  Loading a dog-sleo witn some provisions and trading supplies, I started  eariy nejt morning for Mik-e-su Pe-  mat-to-ga-vvin  (lake where the eagle  swims)   where he  was  camped,  and  reached there in  good time.      Three  teepees were standing in a well sheltered spot, but. no one was in sight.  I noted three freshly killed bear skins  on  stretchers, one    large    and    two  small, and  was  pleased "to  think the  hunter's skill had again saved thic little band from hunger.      Approaching  thc   centre   tent,   home   of   Essa-wa-  pum-o,  I  could hear him praying to  the   Great   Spirit,   giving   thanks   for,  being guided to the winter den of the  x bears;   taking no  credit  for his  own  skill, but giving "Kitche Manitou" all  the praise.*"    I peeped in the teepee.  Pots of bear meat were cooking over  the small fire in the centre, and all the  little band were devoutly listening to  the. old    man's    prayer*   and    grace,  though  some  of the    younger    ones  were casting hungry ��������� glances at the  food, which evidently they had not  yet tasted... Finally grace was over  and I called "How" from the entrance to the feepee. They came out  like a swarm of bees delighted to see  the trader with his load of good  things to eat.  Camping in the old man's tent as  usual, and after a famous supper in  which tender young bear meat figured  on the menu, I had him describe the  finding of the bears, which he did  most graphically, and further said  that when starting out early ��������� that  morning he prayed long and-* earnestly to Manitou for guidance and success ir. his hunt, and you can see for  yourself the reply:. Bear meat in  plenty and furs to purchase the flour,  tea, bacon and sugar our good trader  has brought us.  "What condition  were these bears  in?" I asked.     "Very fat," was his re- j  ply.     "A she bear and two large cubs,  thc latter suckling their mother."  "As.they had beep in the den since  late October or early November,  where on earth did the old she bear  get milk for her cubs, as they store up  no food in their winter quarters?"  "Why," was Essa-wa-pum-o's reply,  "you know all about that."  "How is that?"  "Why, your Big Book tells,you."  "What book?"  "Oh, you are stupid. Why, Kitche  Mussi-na-e-gun of course" (meaning  Bible). -  "But what does ^he- Bible say about  it?"  "Why, God gives her the milk!"  And verily the old pagan  Indian's  reply made nie speechless, for 1 could  think of no other solution.  ���������TSr*  BALANCE  Unfavorable Balance For Twel ve Months Amounted to More  Than $57,000,000.

Listen to this from last week's Crau-  brook Courier: "A number of  citizens interested in the erection  of a suitable memorial for the heroes from East Kootenay killed in  the great war���������numbering about  one hundred���������are anxious to learn  what further action will be taken  to complete the work. If we have  not publis pride enough to respect the memories of those who  have passed into the valley of "the  shadow let a public meeting be  called and the monies already col  lected   returned  4-rx  fcho  se  Who  were publie spirited enough- to  make the necessary effort. Unless the citizens ^carry on" it is  probable the returned men of the  district will go ahead with the undertaking."  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR  bnoeBaaker  rtoi?orrri,>T  A Regrettable Oversight  Editor rtEKiEW;  Tn the London (England), Daily  Telegraph of December, ard.. appeared a three-quarter coiiiniu article  under .the heading. ''Advertising  Appies," and canying a sub-heading,  "American Enterprise." The article !  speaks of the business earnestness of j  ���������the people of the western continent,"  and proceeds". to state that th-vre are  thousands of people in \Nova Scotia.  Ontario, California, Washington and  Oregon who; appreciate the fact that  the apple is an important product.  In enumerating tbe districts' in  Canada and in the U.S. where fruit is  grown the province of British Columbia remains unmentioned. But let us  revie-.v'gonie facts���������-and we will speak  oniy of the province of British Columbia for tiie year. 1919, as we have not  statistics; for. 1-^8.    .  British Columbia is still a baby so  far as fruitgrowing is concerned;  nevertheless this province in 1914  gre������v approximately .631,000 boxes of  apples, -and in 1919" theVp.voyince of  British Columbia quadrupled that  quantity, growing 2,524,132 boxes,  which realized Over $4,500,000 at the  shipping Qoint. .*. But what about the  other tree fruits gr.>wn in British  Columbia, which province the.Daily  Telegraph does not even mention?  In the year 1919 the cherries, apricots, plums, prunes, peaches and peais  in British Columbia realized oyer  $1,000,000 at lhe shipping point. And  fiiis i������ not aii; the raspberries, blackberries, .strawberries, gooseberries,  loganberries* *. currants.' etc., of this  province realised "at'lhe shipping point  in 191f; over $2,000,000.  Ai the time of wilting there a'-e in  British Columbia-over 4000 growers of  fruit trees'having an aggregace of  40,000 acres planted, representing an  investment; of not less than 135,000,000.  And to this must be added 3000 acres  planted.to small.: fruits, and grown by  approximately 500 berry growers. Yes  British Columbia can proudly claim to  have shipped in 1919 approximately  8000 cars of fruit which realized at  the shipping point nearly $8,000,000.  Now, all of tht'se figures are authentic and can be verified by anyone earing to submit the same to the Dominion minister of agriculture. Perhaps  some of ftur English born local fruit  growers may send this article to their  English friends, and perhaps it may  find its way tri the column** of the  Daily Telegraph.r-j^Tours for better and  more fruit.       -PP..

In her heart of  hearts lay shattered a tiny hope which  she had treasured.  The lights above the bills fad-"d to  ochre and drrib, beneath which the  tree-spiked horizon became a darker  line. From copse and forest night-  birds voiced their gladness. From  the far swah-s drifted up the call of  feeding marsh birds, and from the  sleeping lake came th-e laughter of the  loons.  With face against the wee fawn,  Edna sat, thinking���������thinking; remembering how she had loved and  trusted the man who had slain the  mother of this little forest creature,  taken innocent life that he might hurt  the man whom he hated. She had  seen him, with her own eyes, deliberately commit thc premeditated sacrilege. Thc golden head sank lower  above thc spotted atom of life sleep  time she would force his memory  from he*.

But, oddly, his face kept  lifting above the debris of wrecked  love and shattered hope, rising before  her vision, strong and true, with eyes  that pkaded for her not to shut him  out forever.  The night had fallen by the time  they reached Lookup Landing, the  soft, scented night of the North, full  of silence and mystery and peace. Up  the path from the landing, Edna passed, one arm about her uncle's shoulders and the other holding the still-  sleeping fawn.  Ma Washburn, sleeves tucked above  elbows, mqtherly face beaming welcome and good cheer, greeted her  boarders with, "I T3o declare but it's  good to see*you back again." Then,  catching sight of the tiny, spotted animal in Edna's arms, she opened her  mouth in wonder.  "Why, it's a new-born fawn," she  cried, as Edna placed the little thing  in her arms. "How did you come by  it now?" she asked as she stroked its,  slender nose.  Edna and her uncle exchanged  glances, but Washburn, who had  come' in in time to hear the question,  was quick to answer:���������  "I guess its mother met with an  accident, Ma. Wolves, most like. We  found it ,$nyways, an' brought it  along." Then, as Edna and Mrs.  Washburn turned into the kitchen to  heat milk for the fawn, Pa Washburn  took occasion to whisper in Mr. Dayton's ear, "It's hard fer Ma to keep  anythin' to herself, so we'd best say  nuthin' about that chap, Timberley,  afore her."

He looked across to  where the fawn, newly fed, was sleeping sweetly, on an old coat behind the  stove.  "Well, he must be a low-down  brute, ter do ,a thing like that!" exclaimed the woman. "Does Dorkin  know it?" she asked quickly.  Washburn nodded grimly. "I told  him.' ������  "An' what did he say, Pa?"  "Wall, Dorkin ain't a man as says  much at any time.

Dorkin was eating his breakfast in  the big room of the cabin whose wide  window overlooked the grove. The  window was open and through it  drifted the sweet odors of wild plants  and  the fresh  smell  of  the  water. _  On a bearskin rug lay the setter, his  long muzzle resting between his paws,  one brown eye fastened on his master.  Suddenly, above tine wild, clamoring  voices of the wild birds, came a burst  of silvery laughter.  Dorkin arose hastily and, crossing  over to the window, looked out.

She paused and tried to catch  Dorkin's eye, but his head was averted.  'And what i~.cn, Willow?" he asked.  /���������Well,"    laughed    the    girl,    "she  didn't    seem    to  want  to  leave  her  cage,   after   all,   so   I   looked   inside;  to find out the reason, and there oh  a pile of straw I saw her fluffy littl*.  kittens.

They Ihne and die as other  plants do, when they die' they decompose and ferment, forming an acid.  This acid, in its fresh state, will dissolve the enamel of the tooth a very  little at a time at first, but the further  in the bacteria they get the more  rapidly they work.  The enamel of the teeth is not  sensitive. It is composed entirely  of the salts of lime, shaped into microscopic rods that are bound together  by a natural cement. The rods all  point towards the centre like the  bricks in an arch. Enamel is the  armor plate of a tooth. When the  decay gets through the armor it  reaches the ends of the tiny fibres  from the nerve that radiate through  thc body of the tooth.

The nearer  one makes the hen feel that they still  have spring conditions the better egg  production can bc expected. Cabbage, mangels, chopped and steeped  Alfalfa, and such like make fine food  for fowls.

"Thc3c women I" replied the other,  a newly married man. "They are  queer cattle l"  "What's the matterV*  "Well," said the young husband,  "this mornInff the missus chased me  out o' the house wi' a frying pan  and when* I went home tonight she  was crying her eyes out becauia I  hadn't kissed her-when I went outl"  A   Sure   Sign   That   the   Blood  Watery and Impure.  i  People with thin blood are much  more subject to headaches than full-  blooded persons and the form of  anaemia that affects growing girls  is almost always accompanied by  headaches, together with disturbances  of the digestive organs.  Whenever you have constant or  recurring headaches and pallor of the  face, they show that the blood is thin  and your efforts should bc directed  toward building up your blood. A  fair treatment with Dr. Williams'  Pink.Pills will do this effectively,  ancl the rich red blood made by these  pills will remove the headache.  More disturbances to the health  are caused by their blood than most  people havc any idea of. When your  blood is impoverished, the nerves suffer from lack of nourishment, and you  may be troubled with insomnia, neuritis, neuralgia or sciatica. Muscles  subject to strain arc undernourished  and you may have muscular rheumatism or lumbago. If your blood is  thin and you begin to show symptoms of any of these disorders, try  building up the blood with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and as the blood  is restored to its normal condition  every symptom of the* trouble will  disappear. There are more people  who owe their present state of good  health to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  than to any other medicine, and most  of them do not hesitate to say so.  You can get Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills thttuigh any ^ealer In medicine  Sr by mall at 50 cents a box or six  oxes for $2.50 from the Dr. Williams'  Carriers Studied Exchange on International Freight.  Definite progress tbwards'-'a solution of the vexed question of exchange on international freight  charges between the United States  and Canada seems likely, as a result  of a meeting of representatives of  the principal Canadian carriers at  Montreal recently.  The question, which is a most  complicated one, was again considered from all its angles, and a tentative  plan was prepared involving an average varying surcharge, which, it i3  hoped, will lead to a ��������� solution which  v/ill be satisfactory to all parties interested. It is appreciated, however,  that in the working out of this problem it is of the utmost importance  that the integrity of the through rates  by the different gateways must be  maintained to avoid the danger ol a  cancellation of all international  tariffs.  Owing to the "diversity of conditions affecting the various classes of  traffic, and the far-reaching effect of  any action which may be . taken, a  full examination of the international  charges of consultation with United  States carriers is necessary. This  has already bcen undertaken by a  committee appointed for the purpose,  and the matter will be pressed to a  definite conclusion at the earliest'  possible date.  They Promote  Good  Digestion.���������  Food that is imperfectly digested is  harmful in two ways. First .there  is the loss of vital energy arising  from insufficient nourishment. Then  there is the congestion of the lower  bowel which tends to poison the system by the absorption of impurities  into the blood stream. By gently  cleansing the bowels and at the same  time toning up the stomach and liver, Parmeiee's Vegetable Pills promote thorough digestion and consequently a healthy state of the whol-s*  body.
