HOW TO BE HEALTHY  DURING THE WINTER  Many Troubles -May be Avoided if  the Blood is Kept Pure.  Do not let your blood get thin this  winter. For people who have a tendency towards anaemia, or bloodless-  ness, winter is a trying season! Lack  of exercise, lack of fresh air, and a  more restricted diet are among the  things that "combine to Idwcr the  tone of the body    and   weaken    the  *   * ������  Diooa.  As soon as you notice the tired  feeling, lack of appetite and shortness of breath that are warning  symptoms of thin blood, take a short  course of treatment with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Do not wait until the color has entirely left your  cheeks, until your lips are white and  your eyes are dull. It is so much  easier to correct thinning of the  blood in the earlier stages than later.  This is well illustrated In the case of  Mr. B. M.

Hates, Editor and Owner,  ORESTON,  B.C.,  FRIDAY,  JAN. 28  LETTERS TO THE ED!  JOB  Soldiers9 Memorial  Wynndel, Jan. 25.  Editor Review: ..  , Sir,���������It has occurred to me that  the commencement of another year  is an appropriate time to draw the  attention of the community to con-  aider of the Soldiers' Memorial,  with the object of arrivingat some  definite decisien and getting something done.  Incidentally I may say that it is  not very much to the credit of the  Creston Valley that the matter is  still in abeyance, while many less  prominent,' less prosperous com  inanities, have got their memorials  erected. For example, Edge wood,  Proctor and, Phoenix.  may be a very desirable thing to  have, but I would ask you, sir, if  any building of that sort would  carry out the idea of a memorial ?���������  I would suggest that the first  essential of such a memorial must  be that it should speak for itself to  every passerby, arid further that it  should be of such a nature that it  can never be forgotten what it was  erected for; what it represents; that  it shall not only call to mind those  who lost their lives in the cause of  liberty and civilization, but the  fact that so many amongst us (who  happily   are with   .us  ovtsi/  were  I   understand     that  certain  amount of money has been collected, and that further amounts have  been promised, and that a considerable proportion of these contributions have been made or promised on the understanding that a  memorial of what I may call (for  want oJ a better expression) a  memorial character , should, be  erected.  The hitch in the business appears  to be caused by some of the members of the community who are  desirous of taking advantage of  the general desire to- memorialize  those from amongst us who lost  their iives in tne service of their  country to secure something which  they want���������such for instance as a  public library.  ISTow   a public  library, or a hospital,   or  something ~of   that sort  equally willing to lay down their  lives for the same great cause; that  it* shall remind us and force upon  the attention of our children aud  our children's children that we are  members of that great dominant  race which has built up the British  empire; that we shall inherit the  glorious privilege of saying, "I am  a British citizen," and always be  reminded of the duties that splendid inheritance demands.  And I would ask you again, sir,  if you consider a building of any  sort would carry, out such .a purr  pose. B. BUTTERFIELD.

And when it had been developed to a fairly advanced stage, and  established on a firm foundations the business was turned over to the  farmers to manage through great co-operative companies with Government  assistance and financial backing.  In like manner provision was made for the co-operative handling and  marketing of wool, thereby making it possible for the wool growers of the  West to secure the highest price for their wool'clip. Later this enterprise, too, was converted into a large,, successful and rapidly growing cooperative enterprise directed and managed by the farmers themselves.  Another branch of activity -in which Western Provincial Departments  of Agriculture have rendered invaluable assistance to the farmers and stock  breeders of the West is the importation and sale of bona fide farmers and  stock raisers of purebred stock. In this way the standard of Western  herds has been raised and a firm basis established for the livestock industry of the West.  Every possible assistance is rendered to Grain Growers'and Livestock  Associations, to agricultural fairs and exhibitions, in the direction of improvement of seed used, in the provision of seed in districts which have  suffered crop failures, and in countless other ways Provincial Departments  of Agriculture are actively co-operating and assisting with a view to overcoming difficulties with which our agriculturists have to contend, and towards placing the chief and basic industry of the West upon a sound and  prosperous footing.

The shifting of population from country to town and thc  transfer of labor from farm to factory  have gone far beyond the normal and  economical limits, and have become a  menace to the national welfare.    Being both a capitalist and a working-  man,   the  farmer  is  fitted  to  understand the reasonable demands of both  wings of society, and he is agreed that  great wealth cannot be the legitimate  gains of industry and thrift alone, but  is the result of trading, speculation Or  of    profiting    by    other men's labor.  ^Therc is great    need    for    industrial  schools to offset    the   present   drift  which, if continued, will result in all  labor having to be imported.      The  lead in the matter of city and country  co-operation should be given by the  townspeople.     The men in the town  can make the approach    with    more  ease and confidence, and should meet  the farmers more than halfway .---J. B.  Reynolds, Prcs. Ontario Agricultural  College.

Winnipeg.���������A proposal that the  Federal Government should be urged  to float a $250,000,000 housing loan by  the sale of ^Government bonds was  considered at the convention of  the Association of Canadian Building  and Construction Industries here.  Another of many fmportant matters  receiving attention is the proposed  establishment of an apprenticeship  ���������system in the building trades throughout the Dominion. Both questions  were favorably reported upon by the  National joint conference board, form-  ���������ed as a rvsult of discussions with representatives and labor men, and committees were appointed to bring in  definite resolutions regarding them.  W. H. Carter, ex-president of the  Board of Trade, said one of the most  vital problems before the country was  the high cost of building. He believed  that  the cost of  building  ma-  is legitimate to proviae business tor  the nationally-owned systems are the  remedies suggested for the relief of  the deficit facing these lines, by Hon.  T. A. Crerar, leader of the Mew National"-Party, the chief speaker before  the annual convention of the United  Farmers of Alberta here. He suggested that the Government should  settle incoming immigrants as far as  possible along these lines. \  He reiterated his advocacy-of public ownership of railways and made a  plea for co-operation and the retention of integrity in the farmer movement.  Norman Lambert, secretary of the  Canadian Council of Agriculture,  warned the convention against possible attempts to stir up dissentions  in the ranks and rold them that the  organization he represents is doing  a great work in keeping unity among  the various farmer organizations in  the  Dominion.

He referred to* the enormously increased requirements for federal administration..

This left them laughing; for  mice,    whiskey   jacks or weasels arc  generally the first catches of a green  trapper.      On  reaching  my  first, set,  both trap and stick had gone and after circling the spot a few times, each  round a little further away,  I  found  faint traces of where something had  dragged and these  I  followed like a  hound on, a keen scent.      Thc banks  of    the    river    were rather steep in  places and several times  where  Mr.  Fox    had    tried  to get up into the  woods he fell back on it, but at last  came a more sloping bank   and   the  track was fresher going up and over.  Not ten yards away was a beautiful  animal,   black   as   a coal, not quite  though, for there was a patch of silver  haira on his rump.     1 stared   at   it  with ama-zement, ancl finally realized  that it was a genuine silver fox and  no other,      In the meantime it waa  hissing and spitting at mc like a cat.  1 did not want to club It for fear of  Injuring thc skin  (fox    skins    being  yery tender).
