But his objective lay a day  gonquin's head.     From that time for-     ��������� ���������  ward, he had redoubled his efforts to  bring his quarry to earth, following  with unfailing eye the tracks which  the fugitive strove to cover up.  And now had come the storm, the  wild, tearing storm of ripping wind  and obliterating rain. When it passed nothing would be left of the track  of the hunted. Only Sagawa's marvellous intuition to guess accurately  the direction of "his quarry, and so io  pick up that track once more, remained to the man reclining before the  ~.��������� n~-  Deieuu^c,  Above and around, the thunder  crashed with booming reports which  echoed from rock to rock, rumbling  outward and on, to be lost in heavier  detonations from thc lightning-licked  heavens. And over all sounded the  torrent of the rain, and the wail of  tempest lashing the face of the lake  to foam-capped waves,. Occasionally  the duller crash of a fire-girdled tree,  overthrown by the gale, broke  through the wild ' cadence of the  storm, or a tongue of fire licked a  livid spiral down some giant monarch  of tjie forest, as the forked lightning  found it.  But all of this the Indian marked  but impassively, as he waited for the  stQTm to spend itself. Wilder  shrieked the wind, louder crashed the  thunder, and darting fingers of fire  adown the low-hanging clouds illumined the night-world solitude with  blue-white, wavering light.  Then, suddenly, above all other  sounds, came one which sent an icy  chill to Sagav/a's heart. Involuntarily he clutched at the tiny iron cross  beneath his buckskin shirt, and lifted  his rifle. A wail, almost human in its  note, wavenn-g, shri'l. had floated  down on thc wings of the wind.  With a single movement thc Indian  sprang up and leaped outside in the  driving rain, facing th? direction from  which tiad com" that dreaded cry.  Nearby, the h'ghtning claimed a  great, high-standing tree, its crash of  exhilaration drowning���������for thc instant���������alf other sounds. But the Algonquin's eyes straved not for a second from the headland one hundred  yard*" distant, sprayed now with thc  blue-white light of the zigsr-ag-ging arrows of the storm.  And, as he watched, there sprang  from the forest, and leaped across the  heradlar-d, w number of great, gaunt  creatures with lowered heads and lolling tongues. And the leader of the  woH pack was white as snow.  and two nights' journey througti wiiti  forest and swift "strong water." The  last time the white wolf had crossed  his trail, he had been too late to save  his aged brother, the trapper.      He  hand extended to him. Pointing to  the half-breed, with an imperious gesture, he said:-���������  "1 would know why Darbo, who  does the bidding of the trappers in  the willow-hedged valley, is upon the  trail leading to the Basin of White  Water, the village of Sagawa's people?

Pie ceased speaking, at a motion  from the white man, twisting about  so' as to put the fire between himself  and the Indian. Haight stood,  frowning, fingering the stubble of  whiskers on his long chin.  "Darbo speaks the truth, for once  found White Hawk an hour ago, after  the storm. He was pinned under a  wind-thrown tree. He's in the tent  there, what's left of him."  With a guttural cry Sagawa sprang  towards the tent's entrance; but  Darbo, lips drawn back from his  -teeth, snarled him back, -with uplifted  knife.  The Indian paused, and his eyes  rested contemptuously on the half-  breed, as he addressed him.  "Is Sagawa then a starving wotf  that would feed on the broken body  of the quarry he has followed, that  the brother of White Hawk fears to  scents such as only   the   wilderness  holds.

From the frowsy  forest on the water's far shore a mate-  seeking fox barked; through the golden moon-mists above the lake night  hawks flitted and called their plaintive notes in response to fluted whistle  of copse-haunting whip-poor-w,il Is.  The world of the night solitude was  awake again.  The Algonquin gazed about him,  breathing deeply, and a tender light  chased the lines of weariness from  his face. Then, slowly, he stretched  his arms towards the fathomless sky.  "Great Manitou," he prayed, "finish  for Sagawa the task he must leave;  that he might save his brother." Then  swiftly he turned, and down thc lake,  in the track of the moon, propelled  his canoe with the swift, noiseless  strokes that had earned for him the  name, "Water-Swallow" among his  tribe. Quickly the shore on which  hc had pitched his wigwam sank behind him. Onward he flew, impelled  by the desire to reach his friend and  brother before it was too late.

Haight, his hands deep in his pockets, swore softly. "Put up that knife,  you fool," he ordered Darbo. "You'd  be afraid to use it on that big Injun,  even although you was sure his tribe  wouldn't cut you into1 shoe-strings,  and you know it. It's barely possible  that hc knows what he's talking  about.

When a girl in her 'teens becomes  peevish, listless and dull, when nothing seems to interest her and dainties do not "tempt- her; appetite, you  may be certain that she needs more  good blood than her system is provided with. Before long her pallid  cheeks, frequent head aches, breath-  lessness and heart palpitation will  confirm that she is anaemic. Many  mothers, aa the result of their own  girlhood experience, can promptly detect the early signs of anaemia and  the wise mother does.not wait for the  trouble to develop further, but at  once gives her daughter a course with  Dr. Williams' Pink Pilts. which renews the blood supply and banishes  anaemia before it has obtained a hold  on the system.  Among the many who have benefitted by the use of these pills is Miss  Dora Kerr, R.R. No. 4, Wiarton, Ont..  wfyo says: "For a long time I had  been feeling tired and worn out. I  was troubled with headache and backache, and would wake up in the morning feeling tired and depressed. I  had to walk a considerable distance  going to ana from school and would  feel so tired that it seemed I could  not go another step. About this time  a lady doctor came to the school to  examine the children, and she told  me I badly needed a tonic to build me  up. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had  been used in our home before this and  I began to take them. ' I can only  say that thcy have greatly helped me.  I no longer suffer from the headaches  and backaches and I now wake up  in the morning feeling rested and refreshed. If ever in need of a tonic  again I shall lose no time in taking  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

Hayrs, Editor and Owner,  CRESTON,  B.C.,  FRIDAY, tfEB.   4  Real Public Spirit  Speaking of the mueh-heard-of  but not so generally exemplified  community spirit a good word is  due the couple of dosen citizens  who likewise showed their faith  in, and regard for, the district by-  annexing their names to a $1500  guarantee for the appearance  in  Creston next summer of the six-  day Dominion chautauqua.    Due  to    insufficiency   of  show-going  population largely Creston has never been favored with entertainment by outside talent that the  more ambitious of our citizens believe we are not only entitled to,  but that we are willing to pay full  price for.   To set a good example  in the hope that its effect would  not be lost on touring companies  in' the future, the Chautauqua has  been  booked    and   every   eonii  dence is expressed   that   having  onee h3d the pleasure of such high  class entertainment its appearance  here will be an annual summer  fixture^.    In the twelve performances the Chautauqua provides a  wide range of educational entertainment in both the musical and  literary lines, and at %_ cost that  will not exceed more than 50c a  performance Provided   a   season  ticket is purchased.    In addition  to the entertainment for adults  Again Bedooed  there   is   also a provision for   a  children's supervised play hour,  which usually takes   place ' each  morning and is in charge of   a  specialist   in   handling  juvenile  games as well as in giving short  suitable talks to the youngsters,  Too, provision is   made   for   the  children being able to attend the  big Chautauqua features in the  sale   of   transferable   children's  tickets at greatly reduced prices.  If the talent employed on the 1921  Chautauqua circuit is of the same  high-class as that in evidence last  year Creston is assured a week of  education and entertainment next  summer that will surprise even  the most fastidious.  Counting the Cost  Editok Review:  Sir.���������As I underst.and this irrigation project it works out this way;  First, $200,000 are lion-owed for f.wen-  ty years, the same to bear interest at  7 per cent. Second, before this amount  can be. borrowed we rnnst raise nn mi-  dition'al amount of $15,000. The expense, if I haye the correct understanding, would be sis follows:  $200,000 bearing interest at 7%  would amount to $14,000  Boniis we would have to raise.... 15,000  $10,000   sinking   fund,   which     *  most he paid back...  ...10,000  Salary of superintendent.............   4,000  the orchards in the Valley are so  wonder-fully valuabls then why not  those men who tire' so interested get  together and run  their own show.

That irrigation has become a necessity to the  development of the  district-is generally admitted; that  the  men who  are  advocating the  - scheme are, doing fid from the best  , motives goes' without saying, but it  is equally certain that the hest interests of  irrigation are   nojrgoing  to be furthered by creating antagonism, and it would seem that lack  of definite Information as to the de-  jtails of the  seheme is  having  this  undesirable result in seme quarters.  Failure to state the case clearly  and iu detail gives  the man in opposition the finest kind cf opportunity to'gain   converts to.his views.  In   addition   it   is  desirable  that  everyone  interested  should   count*  ths costs now rather than after, the  scheme is completed. ~ Now is the  time to face the facts squarely.  If we decide-that irrigation is a  necessity, regardless of cost now is  the time for us to  realize just how  heavy- the burden is going to be.  The following- are some of the  points which might have been''covered in detail at the meeting, and  which had they beet:' carefully gone  into would doubtless have brought  the meeting to a more satisfactory  termination.  Engineer's Report  The meeting instructed the commissioners to seenre an engineer's  report on the project. An estimate  of the cost of this report could have  u       ' hold-  THB  OBESTON  BEVIEW  Is there any  Meat in the  House?  This is the first question that presents itself  to the housewife if' an  ��������� unexpected visitor drops  in for a meal.   But why  . worry ?  Shamrock Brand  Hams and Bacon  Fiiiest ^Qadlity-  Cooke&Hamfc,  LuhcWM-iatZ  Bologna, &c~.  are  always  to   be  had  here.   In meats nothing  .quite equals 'Shamrock'  products.    .  previous to the  ing of the meeting. This estimate  dees not seem to have been secured  and as a result it is .possible that  some are signing for an expense,  the amount ot Which they do not  know.- ^Engineer's reports' are  usually based upon the estimated  costi'jof the project and run as high  as5% for carrying work to completion. The expense for an engineer  alone on the Arrow Greek projece  ,would, therefore, amount to $10,000,  $200-, 000,00 Loan  JSTo one seems to have any very  definite fdea as to where this money  is coming from. No matter where  it comes from interest and priaci-  pai will become in effect a first  mortgage upon the individual holdings. Supposing this scheme costs  $75 per acre��������� for fche area covered,  the man with 40 acres is assuming  a mortgage of $3000, and it seems,  desirable that he should realise this  fact right afc the start. There is  some vague talk of the government  advancing the necessary, money.  Have the committee any assurance  that the' -government will do this.  If bonds are issued and these bonds  are marketed in the usual way the  expense of underwriting might  easily exceed. 10%, which would  add $20,000 to the proposed cost of  the project.  Domestic Water  It.is stated that one of the sonr-  " " be   the sale of  if 51 per cent, of the taxable property- within the proposed area favor  irrigation   then   the   balance must  come into the scheme whether they  wish, to do so or not.     Here^again  detailed   information   seems  to   be  lacking, or at least was not put be  .fore tho general meeting.    Only a  portion of ������he land in the scheme is  under cultivation, and only on this  portion can water be used economically.       Just   here   the   question  arises as to the method of distributing water, and  collecting revenue.  Will   the    dealings   between   the  water municipality   and   the  land  owner  take  the form of purchase  and sale?    If so is   provision made  in the act for forcing the holder of  uncleared land to buy water which  he does not want, cannot use, and in  all probability is unable financially  to pay for?'   If the dealings do not  take the form of sale and purchase  it would sees*, that  expert advice  gjhould'be  secured   Before  it is assumed that- any man   be forced to  pay for something that he does not  make use of and from v-rhieh he derives no  direct   benefit, and only a  very questionable indirect   benefit.  - Revelstoke thinks, it is iboub time  the federal authorities started vvork on  the $100,000 postoffice building promised the town   at least   ten years ago.

St :-'���������'  Governments as Business Concerns  In any serious consideration of the responsibilities, -duties and functions of Government in a country like Canada enjoying a representative system of Parliamentary Government, the fact needs to be kept in'mind that  - changing- times bring" new responsibilities and duties and necessitate the  adoption of new methods. New inventions create new conditions, and  these must be met by Governments as well as by people engaged in trade  and commerce.  Within the half century since the British possessions in North America became federated as. a Dominion, the whole world has become commercialized to an extent undreamed of in the middle of the Nineteenth century.  When the Fathers of Confederation drafted the constitution of the new  Dominion to be, there was only one great public service of a distinctly  business character which it was specifically provided should be the duty of  the Government to undertake and manage, namely, the postal service.  Powers were, however, conferred on Parliament of an extensive character,  thus enabling the people through their representatives to embark on almost  any business undertaking which might be considered in the national interest.  Qne of the stipulations made by Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in  agreeing to enter Confederation was that a railway should be built connecting them with the old Provinces of Canada. The construction of the  Intercolonial Railway was, therefore, undertaken by the Dominion Government as a Government undertaking. It was, however,, more political than  commercial in character; nevertheless in this way the Government did al-*  most at once engage in a large business enterprise.  . For many years the management of the postal service and the Intercolonial Railway constituted the only really business enterprises conducted  a* Ife&skatctiewaii's Wheat  mm  Average Smaller  t\T*r\(t*r   fUrpf������f   C.r.\r4XfV\vw ett-t ^   mrt0t4tr���������n.nvi%n,  ~\.*.X\A.t~m     X0X- ~ trx     x~tr V t-x ttt-XXtrttX    XM.XCX4.4 *~x_ trXXXtr H X.

It was very soon abandoned and a contract awarded to the  C.PtR-, and it was not until the National Transcontinental and Grand Trunk  towns a market which has never been  Alberta Coal at'Coast  The next few months will likely  see the opening up* of a new market  for Central Alberta coal mines. This  market is the North    Pacific    coast  Pacific project was launched that any concrete step was taken to enlarge  the scope of Government ownership of railways by Canada, and even in connection with that project it was not the intention to engage in Government  operation.  Force of circumstances, and the eruption of the Great War, operated,  however, to compel the Government of Canada to engage in railway ownership and management on a large scale. And conditions created during the  war, coupled with the necessity of operating a hugs railway system, have  resulted in the-, Federal Government engaging tn other large commercial  undertakings.  It is not so many years ago that the- C.P.R. was the largest single rait-  way corporation in the wOFld, with the greatest railway mileage under one  management, but also owning and operating lines of steamships to all parts  of the world, express services, telegraphs, hotels and conducting many allied  businesses. With the amalgamation of the Intercolonial? National Transcontinental, Canadian Northern, Grand Trunk and Grand Trunk Pacific  Railways into one Government-owned system, the Canadian National Railways today boast of a greater mileage than the C.P.R. Along with the  railway, the Government owns and operates telegraphs, express, hotels, elevators and ships.  The next development was the establishment of the Canadian Government Merchant Marine, and as a result scores of Canadian Government-  owned vessels are operating from Canadian ports to ail parts of the world.  Whether Government ownership and operation of irailways and steamship services in Canada will prove a financial success remains to be seen.  Government railways have long existed in Germany, Russia and other  European countries, but political and military reasons were the prime factor  back of these Government enterprises. The exigencies of the Great War  forced Government operation of railways in both Great Britain and the  United States, but in neither case could the experiment be described as  fcnancially successful, and, with the ending of the war, the railways were  returned to private management.  During the war, too, the United States entered upon, a Government  6hip-owning policy, just as Canada did, but whereas the United States Is not  continuing that policy, the Dominion is persisting in it and adding to the  number of its vessels In operation. While other countries have subsized  steamship companies, and have been and are partners in such companies,  Canada is developing au out-and-out Government-owned and managed mercantile service.  It will be seen, therefore, that the Government of Canada is now i  huge business concern, as well aa a political organization entrusted with  legislative and administrative powers for the order and good government of  the Dominion. It is engaged in what ia probably thc greatest experiment  along these lines ever attempted by the Government of any democratic  country. Thc outcome may well be watched with the keenest interest by  the Canadian people as it may cither make or break the Dominion,  tn next week's article some business undertakings by Provincial Governments will be considered.  systematically developed but which  offers unlimited possibilities. A  potential outlet for coal of considerable Importance exists on the coast,  particularly in the bunkering of the  smaller steamboats and trawlers that  ply along the coast, and in the fuel  needs of the industries of Northern  British Columbia. The development  of this market would require the provision ������f storage facilities at Prince  Rupert, since at present there ia no  accommodation, adequate to the storage of large shipments of coal from  Alberta.

A total of 113,135,274 bushels of  wheat were produced in Saskatchewan during 1920 according to the  final crop statement issued by the~j  statistics brancli of the department  of agriculture. This is an increase  of 23,141,589 bushels on the 1919  figures.  The crop w5t,5 below'-the average  and- not nearly as good as expected  prior to harvest, the yield averaging  11.2 bushels aa acre as dempared  with the estimate of 14.5 bushels. In  1919 the yield was 8.5 bushels an acre.  The yield was materially reduced by  the dry hot weather in July. The  acreage under cultivation for wheat  was 10,061,069 as compared with 10,-  587,363 acrea in the previous year.

Then ail  articles in the trading store were priced in ^skin^ always bearing in mind  one of ith|*y-;8trictirulesof the  Company, -that'essential".'articles such as  blankets,   ammunition,   clothing, etc.,  etc.,    were    moderate in price, while  beads, fancy shawls and belts, colored silks, were high in price.     Generally when an unsophisticated Indian  came in with some furs, these were  .counted and valued by the clerks We  will  say  they  came   to  forty  skins,  then forty goose-quills were handed  the Indian.      He would think some  time,  then  divide  them up, such  as  five quills (representing five skins) for  a blanket, four for ammunition, and  *o on.     If you hurried him probably  the whole business would have to be  gone over again, as some important  items would have been forgotten. So  much  for  the'/skin   way of  trading,  very dear to the heart, of the older Indians, for it, was an invariable rule,  that both before and af tier trading a  small gratuity, generally of tea and  tobacco, was handed to him.     With  the introduction of the present currency system, or money way as is is  ���������styled in ihe.north, all gratuities were  cut out and the Indians resented this  _ -extremely.

Well I was very hungry, soaked with  sweat and generally mad at the result,  but  1 had to find my dogs and get  dinner as soon as possible.     Fortunately" i found we had been travelling  in a circle, so"in a short time 1 reached my sleigh and was looking for a  place to boil my kettle, wjien I caught  sight of a smoke, very faint, some  half a mile to the north.     Tviner mv  dogs again I made for   it,   and   approaching  the  spot  very cautiously,  noted an Indian boiling   his   kettle,  while beside him were two small dogs  and sleigh.      My suspicions were excited.     What was hc doing here, and  Btriding' up I asked him.     His reply  was exasive and he seemed very unhappy at my appearance.      Noticing  something   bulky  ������n   his    sleigh     I  kicked the wrapper open, and lo and  behold, here was the mate of my silver fox.     I at once told him he had  stolen it, for the villian had set a trap  within a few yards of one of mine. He  -evidently knew he had a poor case,  for in a cringing tone he said, "Oh,  you can take it, but what will the Big  Boss say, as 1 am fieavy in debt to the  company.   -1 was in quandary, for as  a ..rule    clerks   are not supposed to  CoxL&^antmopia lo use tout relied  By Allies  Failure of the Turks to Ratify the   Peace  Treaty   Leads  to  Occupation.  tm  I  Sir; Vincent Meredith, one of Can*?  ada's leading financial men, and President ol the Bank ������f Montreal.
