Justifiable Postponement  The Directors of the Western Canada Colonization Association are to  bc commended for their action in postponing the actual work of bringing  in settlers until they secure from the prairie provinces a reasonably firm  price list of unoccupied lands available for sale. The Association will not  be warranted in expending thc large sum of money subscribed by its backers until it secures reasonable co-operation from the three Governments.  Ic wo*������id be nothing short of a disaster if lack of action by the Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and Alberta Legislatures should prevent the use of this great  fund for the general advantage of the Canadian West.  Wc look to see the forthcoming conference of prairie province Premiers  agree upon some workable basis of action that will facilitate the operations  of the Western Canada Colonization Association^as of other immigration  agencies. The sooner the twenty million acres of idle land near the Tail-  ways, now held out of production by* more than eighty thousand individual  speculators, is brought under the.plow, the sooner will good times return,  the burden of taxation bc lightened and the National Railways achieve a  self-supporting basfe,  - ,    ,_ -, i    , 4 - ���������  ,    ��������� "* ,       ,  Remarkable Trip In Overland Car  Get Together Results  Benefit Derived From the Accerdited  Herd1 Plan for Control of Tuberculosis in Cattle.  A few years ago the United States  breeders of pure-bred cattle, recognizing the necessity, of more effective  measures for the control of tuberculosis, arranged a.conference with officials of thc Bureau of Animal Industry at Washington, the result of  which was the adoption of what is  known as the,Accerdited Herd Plan,  meaning that the herd had been thoroughly tested and found entirely, free  ���������from any symptoms of tuberculosis.  The plan proved so successful (over  a thousand herds being accredited in  a brief period) that a decision was  arriyed at to adopt the system in  Canada.- # Regulations -were promulgated which came into force in September, 1919, and havc proved grati-  fyingiy successful, a number of herds  having been accredited while many  others are under test. There is now  an agreement between Canada and  the United States .that cattle from accredited herds may enter either way,  without detention or test.  Manitoba Farmer Now  So Strong He Can Put  In Full Time at Work  "I was beginning to think I never  would be myself again but Tanlacfhas  put* me back in as good health as I  ever enjoyed in my' life," said John  JBrown, well-known farmer of Saint  Clair, Manitoba.  _ "I had a bad- stomach and it had  been troubling me for the past two  and a half years. My appetite was  fairly good; that is, I could eat but  it 'looked like everything turned  against me and brought on indigestion. Gas formed and wouid bioat  me up something awful. L slept  poorly, lost weight and got so weak  I couldn't half do my work on the  farm.  ' "Well, I'm mighty glad Tanlac  came my way. I saw before I finished my first bottle, that it was doing me good and now I feel as strong  and healthy as I used to be years ago.  My stomach never gives trie any more  trouble and I eat three good rousing  meals a day like a hard working man  ought to.  "I &eep fine, have picked up conr  siderably in weight and can put in full  time at work every day now. Tanlac  gets all the credit for my good health  today. To my way of thinking there  is not a medicine that can compare  with it." ^  Tanlac is sold by leading druggists  everywhere.

After preliminary tours through Muskoka, -Montreal  and the Adirondacks to the Atlantic,  they   commenced  their  long  trip  by  way    pf    Chicago and St. Louis and  then North again to Winnipeg.

They were always able to obtain  gasoline and neither mountains nor  deserts proved an obstacle to their  "90" Sedan. After several months in  California, every district being visited, Mr. Peb.rs and Mr; Jones returned by the New Mexico and Colorado  route, averaging about 125 miles a  day.   *  They, brought back two monkeys,  one an Australian.

TheYgjrl whoYreturns home from  school or from work thoroughly tired  out will be fortunate if she escapes a  physical breakdown, because * this  getting tired so easily is probably the  first warning symptom of a thinning  blood that must not be disregarded if  her health is to be,preserved.  When the,blood becomes thin and  impure the patient becomes pale;  She not only tires out easily but  often suffers from ^headaches, palpitation of the heart, dizzy spells and  a loss of appetite.       -  In this condition Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills will be found to have a beneficial action on the blood. Miss De-  lima Lafrenicre, St. Ambrose, Man.,  has proved this in her own case, and  advises others to use these pills. She  says: "Before I began the use of Dr.  Williams Pink Pills I felt like a complete wreck of my former self. My  blood was poor and thin. I suffereu  from faint and dizzy spells, and had  backaches and headaches almost  every day. I decided to give Dr.  Williams'. Pink Pills a trial, and by  the time I had used three boxes I felt  mftch better and I continued taking  the pills until I felt as well as I ever  did; For what thcy did in my case  I cannot recommend these pi.lls too  highly."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can be ob*-  tained from any dealer in medicine,  or by mail* at 50 cents a box or six  boxes for $2,50 from The Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

He was hopeful that it  would inaugurate new relations between capital and labpr, ,r^ot ' only in  cpal but in other industries, and he^  believed that if it was sincerely carried out with goodwill it would jepay  the nation for all the damage suffered through the dispute.

I received orders in January of the  year 1874 to' start west with thc'Win-**  ter Packet of the Hudson's Bay Company and had purchased a nice team  of young dogs with light cariole from  a clerk who'* came in from Swan River.      The-packet man was a famous  traveller and known far and wide as  one  o^f  the  best  long  distance  runners      in      the      northwest.      Poor  Johnny Beads, like so many natives,  he did not stand civilizationand went  to Ins lOng-'nome a year or so ago. ���������  I had been a year in the Fort Garry  sale shop and hated the confinement,  and had made application on several  occasions to be sent inlafid (as all the  area outside the Red    River    settle-  ment was called in those dajts), but  the  matter* dragged,  and at last,  on  threatening to resign, I had my way/  So the long-looked for'time hael come  at last, and I was really off for thc  unknown, interior next day.- -   I slept  mighty.������--little     that     night,     having  waking    dreams     of    great    prairie  stretches   covered  with  buffalo,  high  mountains   and   huge'   forests,     with  lakes as big as inland seas/and above  all, thousands of really wild Indians.  It seemed too good to bc*true.     The  morning came at last and what with  delays in the office, closing up important despatches, 'it was after an early  lunch before we left.      I paid hurried  good-bye's to all my friends, and received a hearty hand clasp from Chief  Factor John K. McTavish.      He was J  at that time  the Uncrowned king of  Fort Garry .and was one of the best  chiefs  I-ever  had.      His last words  to me 'were: "If you don't like it in  the norbh there is ajways a place for  you here."    -  Johnny called "Marche!" and away  we went.      His dogs were a fearsome  sight and very savage.      They  were  called Brandy, Grog, Rum and Whiskey.      Thcy were all from the plains,  were used to travois, and were as big  as large timber    wolves>   with    -split  ears} and were-gtey    and    white    in  color.     Both my young dogs and myself treated them with the utmost respect���������at, a   distance���������and ^hey   evidently had a contempt for us as green  i horns.     Pie was loaded entirely with  mail matter'.and, * of course, dog food  and provisions on top of this.    "His-  only bedding was    a    single    heavy  boxes were carefully    made    of    the  thinnest and lightest of wood and he  H. B. Co. white blanket. The packet  was to take then/ to Fort Carlton on  the North --Branch of the Saskatchewan.   This .was.* a* distance of between  five and six hundred miles, with many  a long stretch of plain and but little  wood her% and there.     Other pa,cket  carriers met him at Carlton,- and on  went the great Northern Packet, only  reaching some of the furthest posts  on last ice..     The greatest care was  always t-Skcn of the   precious^   mail  matter. Y ������.-  My young train followed close behind his sleigh, and I noted Johnny  studying my dog's gait from time to  time.      The first stop made was,at  Poplar Point  (an H.  B. Post), and  Mr.    Chisholm    was    hospitable    as  usual: in fact, too much so, as it was  getting dusky before we  pulled  out  for Portage.     Just as we were hitching up, Johnny, who by the way stuttered    badly,    said    "B-b-boy,    your  Herod (my Vorcgocr) hauls too hard  in ftont, so I will put him in the middle of my team and   give   you   Bub-  bub-Brandy ahead"; well,' I was green  and knew no better, so hc very quick-  'ly made the exchange, threw himself  ori his sled and was off, like a flash.  When  I  called,  "Marclicl"  the  dog  sat down on thc road and eyed mc  with a wicked look.-Y I took a step  .towards him and shook my whip. His  reply was to advance in.my direction  growling*    savagely,    ao I retreated.  Well, I was in a quandary.     Pride  forbade me going in and asking for  Qiisjiolm's  assistance.      Suddenly I  noted thc fence, nnd taking a good-1  sized rail off "it, crept up to the rear  of the train, balanced the rail on end  carefully,, then sighting between old  Brandy's ear/let it fall. l*ly aim was  true, und it bowled him over. With  dreadful howls h^e sprang to his feet  and started after 'my companion at a  gallops I just managing to throw myself in the cariole. Catching up with  Johnny at last, I noted he was shaking with merriment, ^and on *itoppin'ir  for a smoke, he said: "Bub-bub-boy,  what did you do to Bub-bub-Brandy?"  We had a great laugh over itYbut in  future I kept my own dogs.  , We Meet at Bourgeois.  We ' reached    Portage  about nine  that night, and  Mr.    Jiis.* Hargrave    *  made us very welcome as    is    usual  {.amongst Hudson's Bay men.      Next  day wc camped at White Mud River,  where    was    one Jimmy  Whiteway,  postmaster, and here we met my ne\y  chief, Factor Archie McDonald, king'  of the Swan River district.      He was  by no  means prejudiced in  favor of  Canadians as by tar the majority of  the officer's and men of lhe H. B. Co.  at that time were-JScotch,    and    very  clannish    at    that.      Johnny    Beads  started 'early   next   morning   for   his  long trip across the plains and I accompanied Mr. McDonald and party  on   his  inspecting   trip.       Up  to   th-i^  time I had an easy timo with my light  cariole.  but  condition's  were  changed  and my dogs were loaded to capacity,  /���������so it wts mc for    the   road.      Jcune-  Homme, a young  French  half-bre-rd,  who   was   guide,   fortunately   took   a  fancy  to  the young  tender foo%  and  at   once   christened     me     Ogcmase-=,  meaning little clerk. ,    He had "^overheard  the bourgeois   say,  "Well,   we  will see what kind of stuff this little  j Canuclc is made of and he ean  head  the part*j^_tomorrow."  It was a good thing for -mc the day  was   a   short  one,   only   some   thirty  miles, as*I was funning the whole distance.      If 3-0U want to know what  it was like, just watch a dog trotting ^  beside a-rig ind you follow him and  keep that up for thirty miles. Luckil}-  for.me thc track was hard and snow-  shoes  not needed.      Oh, boyj_bjit  I  was tired that night    and    mj'    legs  cramped  with   the   unusual   exertion,  and it seemed that just about the time  I fell asleep the call was made to get  up again.      This was my first introduction to .an abominable habit customary with the big men-of the company at that period.     The guide called all hands between three and four in  the morning,-dogs Avcre hitched and  away we went, the "bourgeois at once  going to sleep in his cariole, while*us  poor beggars trotted along.      There'  was no sign of daylight, it* was ..very  ������������������  cold/and  our  stomachs ..were   fairly  grinding for  something, to  eat.      In  my own case I was stiff and sore front  the unusual exertions of the day previous.1      I also  had a sharp pain in  one   heel.     Would    daylight    never  conic     Talk about an appetite, mine  was like a raging wolf.     Well, after  a. long three hours, thc guide called  a "halt, a huge Ifte was made and we  runners-breakfasted mightily on bannock and raw pemican, with oceans  of   black   tea.     I told Jeune-Homme  on the quiet that my heel was stabbing mc\ and he at once pulled off my  moccasins and socks.     There was a  crack in  thc hard skin of the  he/.l  over an inch long, and this would naturally,open every step I took.   "O.h,  boy," he exclaimed, "I will soon fix  that."     Taking off his fur cap, in lhc  crown of which was a square needle  (really    a    thrcc-cornercd    glover'*)  threaded with deer sinew, aud holding my foot tightly, hc put in three*,  or four stitches.      He then  covered  it with spruce gum, placed jomc cotton on this, and it   bothered   mc   uo  more.     I remembered this recipe and  used it afterwards on many occasions.

Says Mr. Grant:  ** O. J. Wigen; veterans strawberry grower and manager of the  Co-Operative Fruit Growers Association of Wynndel, deserves credit  for the way he has improved the  pack of the Wynndel berries this  year; The hallock is the standard  one, and the berries are equal to  anything coming on the market  from British Columbia. Wynndel  berries are grown on straw. All  etrawed bearies have Bold at a premium over' unstrawed ones on the  prairie market this year. Our  mainland and island strawberry  growers should give the Clark's  Seedling a trial for a shipper: it  will sell for more than any other  berry, and this should compensate  for the light yield."  the construction of the monument,  and are hoping to have it complete  and ready for unveiling within the  next two months^  Just what the dc&cit will be as  between the amount that willt he  paid in by the original guarantors  and the total cost of the finished  monument it is, of course, impossible to state at this juncture,  but there is sure and certain information that -the amount already  pledged will not be sufficient.  The Memorial Committee is proceeding with the work iu the hope  that those who have already guaranteed will- pay their promised contribution if they have not already  done so; that any newcomers who  have not been solicited in the matter will contribute as generously as  their circumstances will permit;  and that now the memorial is under  way any who have been witholding  donations for ' any reason whatsoever will^Iso give whatever con tri  competent man'for such a position  is right here in Creston Valley.  Directly as well as indirectly this  apple show is for the benefit of tbe  growers, and it is to be hoped that  all of them personally as well as  through "the org;inizations to which  they belong wiii .lose no time in  bringing all'possible pressure to  bear' on the minister of- agriculture  to make sure Kootenay is not overlooked _ when representatives are  being .selected to handle things at  the big -British exhibition.

Although mifclv time and effort  has been devoted to the securing of  a suitable memorial the cost of  which would not exceed the amount  guaranteed for memorial purposes  when the canvass of the Valley  was made some months ago, it has  been quite impossible to do eyen  modest justice to such a-great  occasion on the sum originally  pledged, but notwitstanding a prospective shortage of funds to pay for  the memorial that hus been finally  decided upon, the memorial committee is at once proceeding with  imtion the occasion warrants. .^  Few sections, of the Dominion  gave more freely or generously of  its manhood for the great war, and  in proportion teamen enlisted few  districts have paid the price of vie  tory more dearly than Creston Valley. In the erection of a monument  to keep green the memory, of those  who fell as well as a memorial to  those who served overseas the com  ' mittee in charge may well proceed  with such a commendable e&'S&tTin  full assurance that no matter what  expense they may Jn their wisdom  incur the citizens of the community  will meet in the same hearty and  satisfactory fashion they handled  many less worthy patriotic undertakings.      A   j-  - :  The Yellow Peril  A recent survey made by officials  of/the department of agriculture to  determine the number of Orientals  holding land in the province has disclosed that there are 1,080 Asiatics  controlling 26,918 acres, of which  <J67 acres are orchard lands, 2,341  acres of small fruits, 10,659 acres of  truck farms, 515* acres of dairy  farms and 3,677 acres of land used  for mixed farming.

CERSTON  More definite information has  since come to hand concerning the  British Apple Show that makes it  quite- clear th^ yCreston Valley  cannot be represented there by a  worth while display of fruit for the  competitive features and the districts' exhibit, and have one"of our  own citizens accompany the orchard  product as well, unless an amount  in the neighborhood of $1000 were  voluntarily contributed to foot the  expense bill.  In looking over the varieties in  which awards will be made it would  seem   that  there  are possibly   ten  competitions in which  the Valley  product might be entered, and if in  addition   to   this it is proposed to  utilize the minimum space allowed  for district displays a matter of not  less  thau   $300 would be required  for exhibition  fees, alone,   to   say  nothing of  the cost of assembling  the fruit and paying the transpor-  t.ion   charges.    If to  all this were  added thr travelling and other expenses of a direct representative it  is at once apparent that the cost���������  no matter  how great  the   benefit  that might accrue���������ia just a little  beyond the means of the Valley at  this particular time.  But while it may be impossible  to have one of our own citizens at  the Apple Show whose sole duty it  would be to look after Creston Val  ley's interests (and our own particular ii terestB only), the fact should  not be overlooked  that, doubtless,  the provincial department of agriculture  will bo sending- three or  four  representatives  to look after  B.C.'s interests, and in all fairness  at least one of these supervisors,  should  not  only come  from   the  Kootenay, hut should bo a producing horticulturist;   one   who   haa  been   through   the   mill   and can  speak with  practical authority on  all phases of  the horticultural industry. ���������  And if it is admitted that it is  meet, right and the boundcu duty  of thc provincial authorities to send  a Kootenay man, it cannot bo denied that the most likely spot iu  the  Kootenay fruit area to get a  of 14,050 acres.        In orchard land  the  Japanese  own   176  acres and*  the Chinese 14 acres.    '   In   fruit  farms the Japanese ovvn-2,096 acres  and the Chinese 25.  In truck farming and mixed  farming the Chinese own much  larger areas, having 1,632 acres of  truck farms as against 281 owned  by Japanese, and in mixed farming  1,228 acres as compared with 631  16 acres owned by the Japanese.  In leased lands 105 Japanese con  trol 1781 acres, wfeile' 369 Chinese  control 11,087 acres, making a total  acreage of 12,868.

What's a  Guarantee?  Qur idea of a guarantee is that the  manufacturer who gives one- whichhasn^t  any tags and loopholes���������believes in his  product. '  So much so that he stands ready to make-  good any loss suffered by the purchaser .-  .. through defective material or workman-  ship.  It's mainly because of the guarantee that.  goes with them that we are selling and'  recommending Ames Holden "Auto-  Shoes." *  Of course, we know they give the cheapest mileage too���������that they are dependable tires for any  make of car, anywhere. But it's the guarantee  that we talk about most*. , It's the straight and  clean-cut, without time or mileage limits.

The Beck of Fortune  The last congratulations had bcen|  offered; the last good wishes, somewhat mixed with tears, had been expressed- The bride, glowing in the  happy consciousness of her own  beauty, and deified by the great tenderness that enveloped her new estate  like a-goldeii mist, said her farewells  with steady voice and undpooping  eyes. Once only, when two frail  arms drew her to the great mother-  heart that was fighting with joy and  unspoken sorrow through its travail  of the soul, did their bright rays moisten and tremble like sun-shafts in a  pool. It was for the moment only;  one hallowing kiss on the ��������� dear,<s\vhite  cheek; then, with uplifted head, she  said good-bye, and the mother smiled upon her in a pride that was deeper than her pain.

It had been a busy winter for John  Harris,   and   this,  although   the  consummation   of  his   great   desire,  was  but    the    threshold to new activities  and new outlets for his int-chse energies.      Since    the    face, and form of  Mary Allan had first enraptured him  hi his little backwoods school district,  a    vast    ambition had possessed his  soul, and  to-day,  which  had  seemed  to be its end, he how-knew to be but  its beginning.     The ready_corisent of  his betrothed to share his" life in the  unknown wilderness between the Red  River and the Rocky Mountains had  been a tide which, taken at its flood,  might  well  lead  him  on   ta  fortune.  At the cbnclusion of his fall term he  had resigned his position as teaech'er,  and  with  his   small  savings  had  set  aboutvaccumulating equipment essential to the homesteader.      A team of  horses, two"'cows,'a few ducks, geese  and hens; a plough, a wagon,'a sleigh,  a set of carpenter's tools; a gun, an  axe, a compass, a chest of medicine,  a box of books; a tent, bedding, spare  clothing���������tljpese  he  had  gathered   together at the village store or at farmers' "sales," and the doing so had* almost exhausted the winter    and    his  money.     Because his effects were not  enough to fill a car he had "doubled  up" with Tom Morrison, a fine farmer  whose    worldly    success    had    been  somewhat less than his  deserts, and  who bravely hoped to m������nd his broken fortunes where land might be had  for the taking.    Their car had already  gone  forward, with  Morrisons's hired man nestling obviously in the hay,  and two others^hid under the mangers.     When   railways were  invented  they were excepted from the protection of the Eighth Commandment.  So John-Harris and his bride took  the passenger train fronYhcr city  home, while their goods and chattels,  save, for their personal baggage, rumbled on in a box-car or crowded  stolidly into congested side-tracks as  the exigencies of traffic required.  At a junction point they were transferred from the regular passenger  service to an immigrant train. Immigrant trains, In the spring of  'eighty-two, were somewhat more or  less than they now are. The tourist  sleeper, with its comfortable berths,  its clean linen, its kitchen range, and  its* dusky attendant, restrained to an  attitude of agreeable deference by his  anticipation of a gratuity, was a grey  atom of potentiality in the brain of  an unknown genius. Even the colonist car, which has done noble service  in later days in the peopling of the  Prairie West, was only in the early  stages of its evolution. Thc purpose  of immigrant trains was to move people. To supply comforts as well as  locomotion was an extravagance undreamed of'in transportation,  Thc train was full. Every seat was  taken; aisles were crowded with  standing pasif-ntfcrs who stumblo.fl  ovcr bun til os and valises with every  pitch in the uncertain road-bed; wo*  or discussing plans andv prospects  with that mutual sympathy which so  quickly arises among those.who seek  their fortunes together under strange  conditions. - - *..
