Thousands are affected with a  feeling they can't exactly describe.  They are always tired and droopy,  lack ambition, have poor appetite,  Hook pale and suffer from depressing  headaches and insomnia.  This condition is full of _ peril^ It  as thc stepping stone to invalidism,  ihe beginning of a shattered constitution.  We advise everyone in this condition to take a good medicine at  once and_ try to get well while yet  there is time.  Probably no better advice can be  given than to use Dr. Hamilton's  Pills, which have become famous in  restoring the sick to good health. A  general toning up of the system at  once takes place. The whole body  is vitalized by rich and purer blood.  The appetite is increased, food is  digested and naturally strength rapidly increases. Headaches go because  the bowels are regulated and all  -wastes are carried ott.  There is no experiment about us-  ang Dr. Hamilton's Pills because they  ���������certainly restore the sick, as a trial  -9.il) -quickly prove. Just as good for  the old as the young, and suitable to  the needs of women and children.

Lie down and  go to sleep, and maybe you can have  your puppies in the morning."  "But I want them now," said the  bright eyes, gazing steadily into his.  He: shook his head and, rising,  crossed to the corneT. Larry sat up  and watched his master, ears lifted  and head cocked sidewisc.

"Larry," Dorkin addressed the dog,  who had drawn close to watch proceedings with alert interest, "there,  you see about twenty-five thousand  dollars' worth of silver-greys, as estimated by the world of money-grabbers. And, Larry, boy," he said softly, "there you see about as many million dollars' worth of love, known  only in this, your world and mine.  Isn't it grand, purp, isn't it?"  He caught the shaggy setter, as he  leaped to leave a damp carrss on his  master's face, and shook him roughly  to and fro. "You're a wonderful  chap, Larry," he cried, giving the dog  a resounding slap, "and you belong to  a wonderful family. We'll all stand  together, won't we, boy? And if we  fall, we'll fall together, eh?"  1 The setter.whined, and curled up at  Dorkin's feet ,once more, as he resumed his seat by the table.  Somewhere, in the silent cabin, a  clock chimed the hour of two, and  still Dorkin sat, with folded arms,  thinking. Then voices sounded outside, and Larry, with a low growl,  sprang erect,  A moment later Pete LaPeer entered the room. Behind him trailed half  a dozen lean-faced, steady-eyed men  x>f the forest.  Dorkin stood up and- shook each of  them by. the hand, calling them all by  their first names, and drawing from  each a flashing smile, a3 hc made  them welcome.  From a big cupboard he brought a  platter of cold meat and crackers and  cheese, and placed tt on the table.  Pete-went to the kitchen, and brewed  a big pot of tea, the kind all genuine  woodsmen love. This, with white,  flaky biscuits, such as only Pete's  good wife knew how to bake, along  with wonderful confections brought  up from the city, certainly looked inviting to the men, some of whom had  had considerable of a tramp and pad-  die to get there.   .  "We wait on one anudder," Pete  explained to Dorkin, as they all seated themselves, and fell to. _ "Dat is  bes' plan, eh? We all come in toged-  der."  "Fine," Dorkin commended, and,  looking gratefully from one tp the  other of the men who had so willingly responded to his call, "I want to  say - right here, -that it was> white of  you chaps.     I won't forget it."  Thcy shook their heads and murmured that what they had done���������was  nothing. That was'like them. Dorkin knew that not one of them had  come in hopes of pecuniary gain. To  a man, they had come out of regard  for him, and his; and the conviction  brought a lump to his throat.  "Boys," he said, after the meal was  over, and pipes were alight, "1 guess  you know why Pete went after you,  to-night. I'm not going to mince  matters any by saying you're not running into danger by coming here to  holp us guard our Preserve. There  Is danger; danger of being shot by  those who wish to wrock this place,  danger of incurring thc .enmity of the  raiders by standing shoulder to shoulder with us. Now, then, boys, If  that wasn't clear to you before, it ia  now, and if any of you want to witK-  draw, you can do so, and still be my  friend.  He paused, waiting for someone to  speak.  Someone did, A grizzled-haired  trapper, smoking a corn-cob pipe,  cleared his throat deliberately, spat in  thc empty fireplace, and growled:  "Oh, hell, Dorkin, don't spoil our  good time by son din' any of us back.  We're jest naturally achin' fer a  chance at Dalton an' his crew, eh,  boys?"  "That's whatt" and, "You've aaid  it, Soil" from the others.  "Thanks, men," said Dorkin quietly.  He walked over to thc corner where  th* trappers had stacked their rifles,  and surveyed the miscellaneous array of jyun"t. All were woefully antique, with the exception of thc one  ownid by the man, Sol, and it was  not by any means modern, being but  a eingle-shot, breech-loading rifle, of  small   calibre,  Dorkin knew thr.t evvy man among  them was watching him, knew how  rnudi each of those Toyul bushmen  ,ovm his rifle, gucBsed what sacrifices  he had made to tr.curc It, and knew  of the Hope In each heart that ������om������  day he rniffht own n repeating rifle,  like LaPe������r>.  So It wa������ with a smile" on hin face  and a gladness in his heart that he  turned from his IntfifelUm. and eroded the room to what UmUrd like a  bookcase built into the wall.  "Boys/'    he    addressed  UP, volun-  a person inhaling Catarrhozone. It is  so soothing, so warming^so full of  concentrated healing power that you  get results at once.

"But, boys, I've found something else that I value, something else  I want to keep by me, too, if I can,  and that's the loyalty of six good  men."  t He waited a little, and then  continued:���������  "I would like you men to come up  and make your homes here on the  Preserve, if you will, you and your  families. We'll build each of you a  fine cabin and see that you want for  nothing. I might as well tell you!  now."he said, to the look of wonder!  in their eyes, "that I am acquiring another considerable tract of forest  from the Government, and will require the help of six or more men.  Pete and I have about all we can do  now."  Again he paused fb mark the result  of his words; then he said gently:  "All your lives you men have hunted  and trapped the wild things, in order  that you might live. Lean pay you  all five times more money than you  are now making, if you are willing to  come and be one with us, and heip  those wild things to live. No!" he  cried, holding up his hand as they  were about to joyfully agree. "Think  it over, and let me" know later. We've  got something else to consider now,  and we've got to get 4nto action right  away."  He threw open the door of the case,  and beckoned the men forward.

"A new rifle to each man who has  ������roved his loval friendshio to me this  night."  He laughed, boyishly, as they  crowded about the beautiful repeaters;  with expressions of fonder and de-,  light. Well he knew^ow each man  of them had1 craved for such a gun,  and in the purchase of these for-them,  he had derived a great deal of happiness. He had,-intended making the  gifts at Christmas, but it looked as  though it were the better plan to let  his wopds-friends have them now.  The raiders would, undoubtedly, have  modern firearms .  One rafter another, Dorkin passed  the^ rifles out to. hands that shook in  their eagerness to caress them. Pete  had struggled in with a big wooden  box of cartridges. Dorkin pried the  box open and distributed the smaller  cases to the trappers.  The simple woodsmen were wild in  their glee at possessing each a new,  modern rifle. They wrung Dorkin's  hand until it ached, and he laughingly  begged them to desist. They swore  they would stand by him through  anything, and scorned the idea of him  paying them for helping him in his  extended   Preserve.  "Jest let us come an' work with an'  fer you, an' all we ask is our livin5,"  they told him.  It was almost morning before Dorkin at last got his friends to lie down  to sleep in the big inner room', the  floor of which was spread with thick  skins. And when, finally, thcy did  He down, each man fell asleep cuddling the rifle of which he had often  dreamed, but never thought" to possess.  Dorkin did not seek his own bed.  His mind was strangely awake and  active. The fatigue he had felt during the earlier part of the night had  passed. He cleared the table of its  dishes arid broken victuals; and sat  down  to wait  for dawn. -  Over in the corner Spray-Coat had  curled herself up to sle-^p, her slender  muzzle touching the big wicker crate  which held her puppies. The setter,  too. was stretched out on a rug, paws  crossed, heavy head resting on them,  dreaming of dappled coveysvon some  shady upland.  Dorkin got up and passed across  to the open door.

It i3 fashioned on the simple lines that so accentuate the youthfuiness of the figure.    Dark blue cire braid in two different widths decorates this delightful dress, which boasts the very short  sleeves that  are remarked on  many  of the new creations for spring.

Dyking and Development Act,  and instructed them to employ an  engineer and ascertain the cost of  the Arrow Creek and Goat River  schemes and report. '  ,  To do this we had to follow procedure as outlined in the act. First,  circulate petition and obtain signatures for a majority In value of  owners as outlined jri Sections 4  and 5. Second, give public notice  of intention to present petition to  the government as published  m tha Creston Review as well as  the B.C. Gazette. And also present said petition to board of investigation, which will enquire into and  report thereon to the minister of  lands, as required by Section 9 of  the act. This, Mr. Editor, is as far  as we have got. y. .  If in due time should the board  report favorably on our project,  and the lieutenant-govei"nor-in-  coniicil should make the order constituting the Arrow Creek Irrigation District, this fact is advertised  in the Gazzete according to Section^.  The district being er&atcd the  nexti step is the securing an engineer, who must be approved by the"  government, to make a survey and  make a plan showing such of the  lands as will be benefitted by the  proposed works.  Sections 26 and 29   provide  for  plans of works and   estimated cost  also assessment roll'"giving /proportion of taxeS   which   will be levied.  Section 30 provides   for the calling of a meeting of jo-wners; notice  to be mailed   or  delivered   to each  owner not less than ten days before  such meeting.'P<- Every owner shall  be entitled to votev either in person  or by proxy.

CRESTON  Editor Review:  Snt���������Will ������ou allow nie space in  The Review for my views on the  Soldiers' Memorial, that has already  hung lire too long. I believe I was  one of the brat committee handling  the preliminary features , of the  memorial, and when thatcommittee  was discharged it was decided by.  unanimous vote of the donators  that a monument should he erected  from the funds subscribed.  I do not know whether the subscribers have been 'consulted since  then. However, I have not, and if  a library is decided on I for one  want my money back, for I know  real well I can go out in this district and get enough funds from  citizens���������who hold the same views  as myself���������to build a monument.  The longer this is put off the  harder it will he to collect even the  money promised, as I often see  deserters walking around town  ���������and from some they get tlie same  respect almost as is shown some of  our returned men who are baok  from the war crippled and maimed  for life���������it looks to me as if  it will  in which the boosting of British  Columbia manufactures and products will be the "big idea."

At that time the  principle was upheld that a Bank's first duty was to its depositors, that is, to  those from whom it had accepted money and for whom it undertook to act  as a trustee of the funds thus entrusted to it  It was further pointed out that the loaning power of-a Bank depended  upon the volume, of its deposits, and that, if a Bank failed to adequately protect its depositors, it would very quickly lose them and hence have no  money to loan. It may be that there are still some people laboring under  the delusion, that a Bank carries on a loaning business out of its paid-up  capital and accumulated reserves, but it only requires a very casual study  of thc Monthly Banking Returns to reveal the fact that the total paid-up  capital and reserves of all the chartered Banks ia Canada, is equivalent to  only a small fraction of the amount of money they have out in loans to the  people. This means that -the Banks have loaned the money received by  -them by way of deposits, retaining in cash on band only sufficient tp meet  anyldemands which depositors may make upon them from day to day.-  Such a system���������and it i's-the only sound and-safe banking system-���������  forces upon Banks the necessity when ."hard times" and "financial stringencies" arise to curtail credits, because it is inevitable that it is during just  such periods that (1} the making of deposits drop to a low mark, and, (2) i  that those who have money on deposit have to draw-some of it for use.  There is only one thing for the Banks to do in order .to protect their depositors and be- in a position to honor all cheques drawn upon them, and  that is to curtail credits and reduce loans.  In a very notable address before the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' convention at Moose Jaw early in February, Hon. C. A. Dunning, Provincial  Treasurer, not only very clearly 'outlined the above situation, but he demonstrated, apparently to the satisfaction of his-big audience, why a Federal  Banking system is the only one in which the people of the West can look  for satisfactory results. The West is a seasonal country. In the Fall and  early Winter, when the grain crop is harvested and largely marketed, the  bulk of the people have money. It la at that time the farmers pay their  bills, interest on "loans and mortgages, and when the better established  farmers place money on deposit in the Banks. At that season few farmers, comparatively speaking, require credit, unless it be for the speculative  purpose of holding their grain for a rise in the market price.  At other periods of the year, farmers are not making deposits, but are  either gradually withdrawing money they had on deposit or are"asking  credit.  In other word3, at the one period of the year when a purely local or  Provincial Bank would have money on deposit which could be used for  loaning purposes, the demand for credit 19 at a minimum, while the period  when loans are most urgently required is the time when deposits are not  being made, but are reduced to the lowest figure. It will be seen, therefore, that a purely local Western Bank would never be able to function as  a great loaning institution at the very time when loans were imperatively  required. Under the Federal system, on the other hand, a surplus of  money on deposit in one section of ..the country can be used in another section where it may be required, money flowing back and forth, or in a circle,  with the varying seasonal requirements of all sections.  Mr. Dunning, therefore, held out no hope of thc establishment of purely Western agricultural Banks. On the other hand, while frankly stating  that thc present Canadian Banking system was well designed to meet the  needs of commerce���������and it was for that purpose it was originally created���������  Mr. Dunning admitted it had its weaknesses from the Western agricultural  standpoint. Thc remedy, however, was, in his opinion, to be found in thc  making of certain amendments to thc Banking Act which would enable  Banks to accept certain securities now prohibited to them and thereby  make possible the extension of larger and better credit terms to farmers.  Many of the more far-seeing Western bankers realized the necessity of  such amendments, and would favor them. Mr. Dunning, therefore, advised  the farmers to urge such amendments when the Banking Act came up for  Its decennial revision a year or two hence, rather than to persist in the impracticable demand for the establishment of local or Provincial Banks in  the Western Provinces created for the specific purpose of meeting the  credit needs of agriculture. This was impossible in a country where 75 per  cent, of the people were engaged in a seasonal occupation. The present  Federal Banking system, revised to meet the needs of agriculture, offers the  only practical solution to this problem which is so vital to the development  and prosperity of the West.  ��������� Cossacks are said to have attacked  Trotzky's train and wounded several  of his ministers.

La Corne bad skipped down the river, taking his winter's furs, but leaving all goods iand  ammunition  behind  with no  one  to  look after them.   Goodfellow, though  he had retired some years back, was  on fire to save what he could of the  company's property, but he had been  alone, as all the surrounding residents  had fled likewise.     Now, with two of  U3, we decided to visit the fort next  morning and stay the day.     We received some very good hews also as  to a safe escape from    the   country  (but the time for that was not yet) as  he had a York boat hidden in a creek,  and our united . stocks  would amply  provision   us.      in' addition   we had  four or five fish nets and   plenty   of|-;  hooks and ammunition.      His cattle,  of which he had a large band, worried him as to their final disposal, and  we finally decided on.the quiet that  one of us  would have "to stay  with  them with his oldest boy and drive  them to a safe retreat in the hills to  the   east.      He    was in great spirits;  over my arrival, and    said    that    we  were   now  good  for  a  regiment   of  rebels.     We made a famous night of  it, he telling stories of wintering on  the plains amongst the buffalo where  they  had often   to defend  the  company's   property    against hostile Indians.     And the ladies who saw one  another  very seldom  in  those  days  equally   enjoyed    themselves.      Mrs.  Goodfellow,  who  was a member of  the well-known Turner   family,   was  the soul of hospitality,; and. our children were at once petted and made  much of by their fine youngsters.  Breakfasting early next morning  and seeing to our arms, we drOve  down to old FC La Corne, at that  time situated about-two miles down  the river from the present post and  _ within easy reach of the water, all i'rii-  (Copysisht-sdy  trouble and backed   up   against   thej  shelves    where    my six-shooter was  laying loaded, then looked at Good-  fellow.     Not a word was spoken.     I  could note that his beard was curling,  and finally he  said  in  sharp  tones,  "What do you want?"      With that,'  the leader evidently, produced a letter  to him from Chief Factor Clarke at  Prince Albert, asking him to take an  inventory of all goods he could find  and ship the same down to Cumberland House, further stating that these  men  were loyal   French half-breeds  and anxious to get away   from   the  fighting.      The tension was then relaxed.      I  asked  George  afterwards  what he would have done if they had  proved hostile.     "1 would have called  to them to pitch their hands up," was  his instant reply.     "1 was over forty  years  in   the  company's  service and  never  had anything  taken  from  me  also  I^noted you had your big  pistol  handy."      The  letter  also  instructed  that a'careful copy of  tl  inventory was to be sent up to Mr.  Clarke by a trustworthy hand.     Poor  Lawrence Clarke.      For many years  he  could  have  been  called   the  uncrowned King of Northern Saskatchewan,   with   everyone obedient'to his  dictates.

We found a number of  Indian's very much interested in the  valuable goods laying about, but Mr.  Goodfellow had been master of La  Corne for a number of ycars and immediately ordered them all across the  Saskatchewan River. Away they  went at once, being a peaceable  crowd, and Christianized for many  years back, this being the site of one  of the oldest Church of England Missions in Saskatchewan.  As we were liable to be visited by  hostiles at  any  time,  to  whom  the  supplies would bc very acceptable, our  first thought was of the ammunition,  there being a considerable  stock of  powder, bullets,   shot,   guncaps   and  flints, for flint lock guns were still In  use.      Wc  finally  disposed of these  In an old dry v..\l, packing them carefully   against   dampness   arid   removing all^ traces on  thc surface.      We  then carried all valuable things that  were lying about into thc store, put  different  classes   of goods  together,  padlocked the place and  went  back  home for the night.     It took several  days of steady work to take an exact  Inventory of all goods on hand, and  the last day, while we were figuring  up totals (which ran well   into    the  ' thousands) the door   of    the    shop  Opened and in filed four French half-  breeds.      I thought we were In for  a camp for the men and went back  home, intending to freight my furs  down in the morning. This we did,  and after some hours' hard work, saw  the boat off with its valuable cargo.  This meant safety, as t|ie rebels never  attempted reaching the lower Saskatchewan. ' Running to the mouth of j  this river at Grand Rapids was the  steamer Colvill on Lake Winnipeg,  which took all cargoes on to Fort  Garry.  After fair copies had been made of  the inventory and shipping bills, I  volunteered to take them to Prince  Albert, so started next morning in the  saddle, by way of the Forks This is  a wild and beautiful spot where the!

Gentlemen: I received a day or two ago from you, your night lettergram, reading as follows: '  "Your campaign has started here and we arc disappointed you have  overlooked us. We have been in communication with you from time to  time and hoped that your advertising would appears in our columns. Sunday Sun has exclusive issue and is choice when one paper is required to  cover this field."  Would say in reply, that it is true that at one time we were thinking of  using your paper, but to be frank with you (and I take it for granted that  you want mc to be frank) our reason for dropping your paper was that we  do not like the editorialpolicy you arc pursuing.  We believe that your medium has advantages, on account of it being  the only morning paper in'Vancouver. On thc other hand wc are firm believers in the policy of doing business, as far as possible, with our friends,  and your.attitude in some cjases with respect to some questions has caused  us to feci that you are more against us than with us.  The definition of your tariff policy as announced in your issue of June  29 would bc fairly satisfactory, if it had been consistently followed up, but  since then we notice a tendency to favor the tariff policy of Mackenzie  King in preference to that of Mr. Meighen, and to mv way of thinking the  return of a party pledged to Mr. King's platform at tne present time would ;  inspire such a lack of confidence in business circles that thc country would';  suffer a severe depression.     In keeping with your stand upon this point you  havc urged thc dissolution of Parliament and a general election.     In our  judgment .that advice is contrary to the best interests of the country at the  present time, because there would bc the possibility of the country being  governed either by Mr. King and his followers or by the Farmers' Party, or  perhaps by a combination of the two, and thc far-reaching dangers to cstab- ,  lished business by putting into execution the policies that they preached,  ; would put an immediate stop to thc investment of further capital and mean  retrenchment all along the line.  Another matter which 1 might refer to ia the publication of certain  editorials from time to time with regard to the   business   interests   of   the  vountry.     As an illustration, 1 might refer to the editorial which you ran  near the end of July, dealing with the Lake of the Wood Milling Company.,  1 have no brief for this Company and have no interest In it cither directly-  or indirectly but being a business man and a manufacturer I can see very plainly that thc large profits that thcy were able to roll up were made by keeping,  their p!ant running to full capacity all thc year round, thereby turning out a  tremendous output which thcy could afford to dispose of at a very small  margin of profit and still make large financial returns on their investment.  The average man reading an article such as 1 refer to above would likely gather the impression from your line of argument that the consumer,  from the standpoint of price, would be much safer in thc hands of small  millers than in the hands of large millers, whereas as a matter bf fact, if it  were not for the gtfeat efficiency of the larger plants, the chances* are that  the consumers would be paying a good deal more than thcy are today for  their flour.  , The above-illnatration is given to you frankly and candidly, and it is owing to these and other articles of a like character thi* we have not Included  your paper in our list of advertising mediums,  Wc believe,thAt we have the right to say with whom we shall spend our  money for advertising purposes, and while In many ways tf e Kke your paper,  at the same time, we cannot con sis* cully feel that we btc letting the best interests ~of ourselves and the business community in general, 4rhen we advertise In a paper whose editorial policy hat the effect ol tearing dowa  rather than building np the business interests of the country.
