STEAD  Published By Stfecial Arrangement With the Author.  -   v     '.     (Continued)  \ But at length they rode over a  quarter where McCrae turned his  horse and rode back again. Forward  and back, forward and back, they rode  the whole hundred and sixty acres,  untit: not a'rood of it had escaped  their scrutiny. On the south-east  corner a stream, in a ravine of some  depth, cut, ofE; a 'triangle of a . fevy  acres extent. Otherwise^ it was  prairie sod, almost level, with yellow  clay lying at the badger holes. Down  Ini the ravine, where they had been  .sheltered; from fire^ were red willows,  ,-choke-cherry, bushes, and a few little  poplars and birches; a winding pond  marked the course of the stream,  which was running in considerable  volume. -Even as they stood on the  ' banks a great cracking was heard, and  huge blocks of ice rose to the sur-****  face of the* pond. Some of these'as  ' they rose turned partly on their edge,  showing two smooth sides. .*-.*,  "Goodl";-  .exclaimed McCrae.  "There's some depth of water there.  That pond hasn't frozen solid, or the  ice wouldn't come up like that. .YThat  means water all winter for stock, independent of your well���������a mighty important consideration, which a lot of  these land-grabbers don't seem to  reckon on. Now there's a good quar-  tcryjack. I don't say it's the best  there is; they'll be opening up new  land that'd make your teeth water  twenty-five years from now. But  we can't explore the whole North-  West, an' you're far enough from the  railroad here. This coulee will give  shelter for your stock in raw weather,  an', there's a bench looks as though  It was put there for your little house.'  There's light timber to the north, fit  for* fuel an' building, within fifteen  miles, an' there'll be neighbors here  before the summer's over, or I'm no  prophet.      What do you say?"  "The quarter suits me," said Harris.  "And the adjoining<���������;quarter is good  stuff too. I can take pre-emption  right on that.' But there's just one  thing I'm in doubt about." '  "What's-that?"- *Y.  "How I'm going to square "it with  you for the service you have given.  My cash is getting low, andr-r���������" :  "Don't worry- about that. I generally size up my customer an' bill him  accordingly. If he has -lots of money,  an' seems likely to part with it foolishly, I put as much of it as I can in  safe keeping. But there isn't any  money fee as far as you're concerned.  Fact is, I kinda figure on trading this  hill out with you."  "Trading it out?- How?"  "Well, I expect to be roving this  country, east an' west, for some years  to come, an' I've a little policy of-.es-  tablishing depots here an there���������  places where I can drop in for a  square meal an* sleep an' a bit of  Western hospitality. Places, too, if  you like, where there are men to say  a good word for Aleck McCrae.  How's that suit you?"  Harris took his friend's hand in a  ws.rm grip. He rightly guessed that  McCrae was not bartering his services for hospitality, but was making it  easy for Harris to accept them by appearing to bargain for a service in  return.       So   they   shook* hands   to-  fjcther on the side of the bank over-  ooking the little coulce^and. as they  looked in each other's    eyes    Harris  realized for the first time that McCrae  was still a young, man. ;  A-; sense of  comradeship came over him-^-a feeling that this man was -more    of    a  brother than a father.      With admiring eyes he looked on McCrae's fine  face, his broad shoulders, his wonderful physique, and the -question he asked sprang from his hps    before    hc  could arrest it.  "Why don't you get married, Mac?"  "Who, me?" said McCrae; laughing;  but Harris detected a tone in liis voice  that was not all happiness, and  thc  thought came to him  that McCrae's  craving    for    hospitality might root  deeper than he supposed.  'It's a long ride to the land office,"  continued McCrae, "an' you can't file  a minute too soon. We'd bettor find  i corner post an' make sure of the  number of this section, an' put as  much road behind us as* we can tonight."  CHAPTER TV,  Roughing It.  After filing at the land office Harris  returned at once to the Arthurses'  homestead.

By  this time the sleighing was gone, and  as his wagon was left with., the car he  rode one horse .^nd led the other,  carrying with him harness and such-  equipment as was"absolutely necessary on the road. ' He expected some  trouble from the streams, which were  now breaking up in earnest, but he  was determined that at all costs he  would get his wagon, plough and tools  to the homestead'before the frost  came out of the ground and left the  sod trails absolutely impassable.  On arrival at Emerson one of the  first men he met was Tom Morrison.  The two pioneers shook hands warmly, and in a few words Harris told of  having selected his-claim, waving enthusiastic over the locality in which  his lot was to be cast.  P'l must get out there myself," said  Morrison.  "Do," Harris urged. ' "There are  some other fine quarters in the neighborhood, and nothing would be better  than to have you on one of them."  "Well, we'll see. Now, I've got  your wagon loaded ready for the road.  I couldn't get all your stuff on, but i  loaded what you'll want first, arid the  balance can come with the rest .of  mine, so you won't have t6 make another trip. Ned has b^en back for  some days, and we're ready to pull  out too. And the sooner the better.  The river is risin' real dangerous ^ike,  and if it keeps on this town's goin'  to be under water before it knows it.  Indeed,-it wouldn't surprise me if the  bridge went out. So we took the  rest of the stuff-���������yours and mine���������out  a day's haul on theroad. _ It's in safe  hands there, and we can get it later  even if the .bridge does Y go. We  thought we might as well do that  while waitin' for you."  "Waiting for me?" repeated Harris.  "You. don't mean to say "you have  stayed here'just on my account?"  "Oh, no;'you see, we wanted to get  ail the stuff out of dangeH"  But Harris read between the words  that honest Tom had valued his interests equally with his own.  The west-bound* trip was made in  good time, although not without difficulty at some points in the road, ancl  before the 10th of April Harris was  back under the shelter of ��������� Arthurs'  roof. He was for pressing on alone  in the morning, but he found that his  wif* had made all her plans to accompany him and would, listen neither to  persuasion nor-reason.  "No,. Jack," she said, gently but  firmly .setting all his entreaties aside.  "I'm not going to let you do all the  pioneering.      I'm going with you."

"That 'wolf' howl put the fear' into  the silly brutes." said Harris, speakr  ing* calmly,.-although his .own.flesh  was. creeping just a little. "I, suppose they've ripped their tether ropes  to pieces.* ' Well, we'll tie them 'down  here, where' they'll havc company."  And he led jthem back a short distance into the bushes.  A moment later, suddenly, as if-  congealed out of thin air, on the bank  rig&t above them, silhouetted against  the dimlight in the western sky, stood  a horse and rider. Instantly into  Harris's mind came a warning of McCrae: "Sleep with one eye open when  i your horses "are tethered out."  Harris    had    no    proof    that    the  strange,rider was a hbrse thief, but it  struck  hinV*at  the  moment   that   the  terror  of  the horses might not have  been due altogether to wolves. Sometimes these noble, animals    have    an  uncanny instinct for detecting danger.  He stole silently towards the tent.  There was a gun there,   loaded   with  shot  for  any   possible   game- on   the  prairie.      As  he  moved   in   the  deep  darkness   of  the valley  he  stumbled  ovcr a-root and fell.      The same moment    catfie    a    flash of light'an t;he  bank, and Harris heard the "thuk" of  a ball burying,.itself in the sod.      He  lay    perfectly    still.'      Thc ' stranger  peer.ed   into   the   darkness   for  a  full  minute;  then,  dismounting, began,to.,  come  cautiously down    the    hillside.  Harris would have rushed for his gun,  but  he   feared   to   reveal   thc   whereabouts of, his wife.      So he lay sti!i,  and the  stranger came  on,  the glint  of his gun-barrel showing in the darkness.      It was evident he thought his  bull'c,t had found its mark, and he -proposed still to possess himself of the  horses.       But    he     was     taking'  no  chances.   *    Presently    he - discerned  Harris's    body    on  the  ground, and  again raised his gun to his shoulder.  Harris lay ii*. 7|^-^gony of suspense,  praying that the ainj would be faulty,  and that his assailant wonld advance  until he could spring up and"'disarm  him.     ;,Then   came   another   flash,   a  loud report, a yell from the intruder,  who halt fell to earth, then scrambled  to'his feet, rushed up the bank, pulled  himself somewhat limply on his horse,  and rode'iiritb the da!rkness,  "Oh,   Jack,   are   you   killed?"   cried  the girl, rushing in his direction. ,  "Not even hurt," he answered; and  she fainted in his arms.   -  (To bc continued)  ^11^^^^^^  Fletcher's Castoria is strictly, a remedy for Infants and Children:  Foods are specially prepared for babies. * A baby's medicine  .. is even niore essential for Baby.

Advantages of Irrigation  Taber System Will Be Paid For'In  One   Year   By/ Increased       ;  Production.  Paying for an irrigation system in  onc year is the unique experience of  the Taber- project comprising* 17,000  acres, just cast of the irrigated area  operated by the Canadian PacificRail-  way. It cost sixteen dollars an acre  to build thc ditch and laterals and  conservative estimates of'the average  yield on the -13,000* acres under crop  are twenty bushels; to "-the acre aa  against eight bushels on the dry land  adjoining. ,���������.'  This is the first year that the Taber  project has been in operation and far*  mers are"naturally enthusiastic overits  success. -The many fields with thirty-  five and forty bushel crops are, however, the most satisfactory evidence.

' Declaring that the present period of  depression is- due to . the fact that  workmen have produced too n^uch,  and that for this reason 'employers  are requiring their workmen to "take  a rest," Alexander Howat, President  of the Kansas Miners' Union, advised  the laborer not to "produce too much  or you may produce yourself out of  a job" in a speech at Kansts City recently before an audience of laborers.  upwards of fifty years and in that  time it has proved a blessing to thousands.

JACKSON  . One of Mark. Twain*s  vations had it that most everybody  was talking about the weather, but  nobody was doing anything about  it. In pretty much the same ratio  Creston" Valley producers have always admitted _ the necessity of  marketing only the very best stuff,  but due, in the immediate past, to  the supply, exceeding tbe demand  even on the close-to-home market,  the need for practising the_ excellent policy of selling the best���������and  the best only���������has never as yet had  to be religiously liyed up to.  This year, however, due to a  greater output and a considerably  reduced demand on the Valley's  near-home market, at this early  date in the vegetable season, all the  market reports go to show that if  a reasonable profit- is to be made it  will be obtainable only on the high  grade product; atid that if inferior  stuff is shipped and offered in competition there is little hope of maintaining prices and avoiding sure  and certain loss to the shippers of  both the better and poorer class of  cucumbers. and tomatoes in particular. . .     *  Here is the cucumber situation.  According to the Markets Bulletin  of August^ 5th, Okanrgari cucumbers are quoted at 65 cqnts in carload lots, which it is, figured would  lay this stuff down in Calgary or  Lethbridge at 75 cents. Shipping,  as Creston does, by ~expres3 the  transportation charge alone ou a  crate "of cucumbers is around 40  cents.

Coming * by freight  the Okanagan product is bound to"  show the effects of slow transit,  and in competition with the number one -������nt-pus of Oreston Valley  there is no reason why the Creston  cucumber should not sell at a sufficient premium to almost^ offeet the  excessive transportation charge  against it.  As to what* might be termed  choice cucumbers we are informed  that in picklers the market wants  uniformity as to  size and   none of  ** -*      ** v  the larger, sort. ��������� In tne table variety something about eight inches  is the big favorite.- Careful packing is essential and care should be  taken to export only those of a  deep green color.  As to tomatoes, with the local  season* just opening, the Markets  Bulletin quotes them as wholsaling  in Calgary" on-the 5th inst. at $2 a  crate. Assuming the express rate  to Calgary is 50 cents a crate and  that the wholesaler adds a profit of  15 per-cent., the wholesale price  shown would'work out at $1.20 per  crate f.o.b.

E. J. Edwards, or Montreal, with  the remark that the prevention of imports of German goods at ruination  prices appeared to be just the aim in putting forward this provision. The  German goods being brought in are, moreover, largely goods which are also  manufactured in Canada, such as drygoods. felts, silks, etc., not to mention  other things, such as cutlery, manufactured in the United Kingdom.  "In allied and neutral countries the belief is general that German banks  and other financial interests are artificially depressing their rate of exchange," said~ Capt. Edwards, *\vith the object of preventing imports into  their counu*}-, and assisting them to buiid up thcir export trade again at  the expense of thc allies."  "It is contended by these importers that prevention of German imports  will increase the depreciation of the Canadian dollar, by forcing more purchases from the Slates. Fifteen months ago German imports only totalled  $2,502, but a year later, in February last, the figure jumped toj$522,757. For  the 11 months ending February, 1920, German imports (from Canadian  Government figures totalled $29,648, but for the ll^^months ending last  February they had made another enormous jump, to $1,395,380. Despite  the jump, these figures are stitl insignificant against Canadian trade with the  Mother Country or the States, and I cannot see how Canadian currency  will lose in vajue because German goods are prevented from being dumped  ai artificially low prices. Such goods as Canada must import can be obtained within Hie Empire to Canada's better financial advantage than from  thc States.  "It seems to inc it is a question of the'Canadian public supporting their  own and British manufacturers against German ones," said Capt. Edwards,  ''and I have no doubt as to thcir preference. Sir Henry Drayton  declared that to prevent financial ruin Canada must purchase more of  her own and British manufactures-, a statement I thoroughly endorse, and I  am sure he did not think it any wiser to import German dumped goods-than  those of the United States. When Germany realizes the impossibility of  exporting goods at sacrifice prices I believe she will quickly straighten out  her financial methods, until her currency becomes normal and Canada, in  common with other countries, can trade with- her on a fair basis."

French-Canadian Settlers  To Protect Livestock Trade  No Animal May Be Shipped out of  Dominion Without a Certificate of  Health.  The efforts of the Dominion Department of Agriculture to secure a  clean bill of health for Canadian live-  stock have been unusually successful,  it :- asserted by officials of the department. No animal, alive or dead, and  no product made from thc carcass of  an animal, may be shipped out of the  Dominion without a certificate of the  Health of Animals Branch of the Department of Agriculture. These certificates 'have to bc shown and verified both at points of departure and  arrival.  Many Agricultural Publications.

Shackleton Says Mainspring of Life is  Desire for Knowledge.  Sir Ernest Shackleton, speaking at  a    garden    party given by Mr. and  Mrs.  F.  E. Becker at  Suttoa Hall,  Heston*, said it would have been seen  from the Times that he was about to  lead-another Polar expedition, which  had -.been   rendered possible by the  generosity of two   men.      The   first  encouragement    he    received for the  .expedition was frorfi the host of that  afternoon, and the venture would go  forward largely as the result of Mr.  Becker's    confidence in him.      To a  great,   many    the    Polar    expedition  might seem futile, hut explorers-.did  not   go    out primarily for economic  reasons.     The total cost of Polar exploration in  the last 10    years    had  been    ������2,000,000;   the total economic  result had been    ������25,000,000   by   th������  discovery of harbors  and whale oil,  and by magnetic and    scientific    re-  suits.     On the human side it was s  desire   to   go   into the unknown, to  see things that no man had ever seen,  and to go on until all was known;  that had been the mainspring-of life.  Ke hoped that whatever they brought  back   from   the   coming ^expedition  would be for the good of their Empire   and   for   the betterment of the  world.���������London Times.  B.C.
