L. PAYNE  (Formerly   Controller   of   Statistics,  Department of Railways and Canals,  of Canada:)  (From Railway Age, Chicago.)  Since the special announcement of  the deficit of $70,000,000, the Canadian  National Railways for the fiscal-year  1920, there has naturally been a great  deal of speculation -and enquiry as  to the underlying causes. That deficit was, of course, much larger than  the figures given out. It omitted a  very large volume of fixed charges.  The only excuse for this omission  was that some of these charges on the  basis of standard accounting are not  definitely known. They are readily  ascertainable, but thcy have not been  made up. That was thc loose way in  which state railway accounting was  begun more than half a century ago,  and it has never been thought  worth while to make a change. There  was no demand for the information  an;*yay. Absolute indifference prevailed with respect to the whole matter.  A reversal of public sentiment has  taken place within    the    past    three  months.      The craving for authentic  data is general and insistent.    Thinking men all ovcr. the country are expressing deep concern in the volume  of actual  loss and the causes which  have    brought    it aB"out.   - Since the  facts with regard to the deficit were  presented in Tcecnt issues of Railway  Age, there is no intention of repeating them now.     It will be sufficient to  bear in mind that the fpced charges  attaching  to $2,300,000,000  of capital  liability, added to the operating shortage, will probably produce a deficit of  not less than $140,000,000 for the current year.     It need-not be said that,  inasmuch as this loss falls wholly on  the-Dominion treasury, it is a serious  matter to" a country like Canada, with  a* population of 9,000,000 and a gross  revenue of less than $500,000,000.  Judgment By Comparison.  If a glance is taken of thc map of  Canada, it will bc seen that three lines  of railway run closely parallel to each  other from Winnipeg to the Pacific  Coast. One of these is the Canadian  Pacific, thc other two form parts of  the Canadian National group. As  units, the latter arc the Canadian  Northern and the Grand Trunk Pacific. The eye is scarcely able to follow  the parrallcl through Ontario, Quebec, and the eastern provinces, but it  nevertheless exists. That will be ob-  v'  mileage by provinces is brought uiy*  dcr thc eye. The facts from west to  east are as follows: ,  Canadian Canadian  National      Pacific  in the various provinces. They tap  in about the same measure the great  wheat growing areas of the we"st, and  meet on an equal footing on the industrial centres of Ontario and Quebec. They run through the. Maritime Provinces practically side by  side. .Therefore, it would be difficult  to find any good'ground for objection  to the comparisons which will be  made. Yet. these two systems had  operating results far apart in 1919.  ,The Canadian Pacific has a net corporate income of $36,977)263, and the  Canadian National units had a deficit  of $40,650,222. This deficit, in accordance with the reprehensible practice  of many years," left out of the reckoning an immense amount of , fixed  charges.  The object immediately in view is  to look carefully at the various aspects of operating results and to sec if  any reasons for this adverse showing  by the Canadian National group can  be identified. If, for example- it were  proposed to subject the system to  searching examination, what tests  would be applied by a skilled railway  accountant, or a train railway operator, to locate the weak spots? Either  of these investigators would certainly  probe beneath the surface in a perfectly proper effort to ascertain why  in the case of two great railways,  operating side by side,'one should be  strong and prosperous and the other  weak and insolvent. Having located  the trouble centres, he would next  seek to know whether or not the adverse results arising therefrom might  have bcen modified if not wholly prevented.  Where ther Losses Came In. ,  , The four units df the Canadian National here under view, and the Cana-  enger-* miles are combined, and taken   diiions,  .���������!  as a standard which will not be questioned. Ton and passenger miles represent not only the full service of railways, but the -lowest unit of measurement obtainable*.:.-. They place the  roads in comparison on an absolutely commoniiooting. The cost of  transportation? per mile will get us at  once *lo the very core of operating  conditions and, by comparison with* a  strong road, tell us whether or not  there is weakness in that vital centre.  Ijiere are. the facts*as to transportation expenses7:* or ton and passenger  mile-        Y   .  1917      1919  Canadian Northern 321        .634,  G. T. Pacific ..:... 391 -     .673  Transcontinental *. 294        .439  Intercolonial 442 v      .708  The average for the four in 1917 was  .355 as against .288 for the Canadian  Pacific. In 1919 the*average was .626  for the Canadian National and .503  for the Canadian Pacific.  The difference between transportation cost per ton and passenger mile  on the Intercolonial and Canadian  Pacific is very striking. In the case  of the Canadian Northern, which is  responsible for 52-per cent, of the  freight tonnage and 60 per cent, of  gross earnings, there was a distinct  worsening of operating cond^tio'ns.  From being 11.5 per cent, higher than  the Canadian Pacific in 1917 the cost  rose to 26 per cent, higher in 1919.  We get a little nearer to our final  answer when our inquiry discloses the  fact that while these four units of the  Canadian National. increased gross  earnings in 1919 over 1917 by 24.6 per  cent., the Canadian Pacific scored a  .betterment of but 10.9 per cent, during the same period.     Thus the gov-  ~.y ad other'* tests, without  exception, the system, .gave a poorer  performance in 1919 than in 1917.

The tonnage of freight was almost identical;  yet gross earnings and earnings per  mile of line, as well as per train mile,  were far apart. In this relation three  facts should be' candidly stated because they are advantageous to the  Canadian Pacific./ First, the Canadian Pacific had average ton mile.re-  nous when a statement of operatingj-ce;pts of .963 a3 compared with .892  by the Canadian National.    ..This was  due to the higher proportion of first  British Columbia .. 1,201  Alberta    1,816  Saskatchewan ..... 3,371  Manitoba    2,294  Ontario  3,120  Quebec,  1,935  New   Brunswick   ,. 765  Nova Scotia    375  ��������� 14,877  1,816  1,901  2,777  1,728  3,286  1,076  5241  576  13,694  was not in that field. While, however, the" Canadian Pacific was adding  to operating expenses by 34 per cent,  the Canadian National was swelling  outgo by 69.7 per cent. The result  in dollars and cents was that a net  operating * surplus of $13,510,116 in  1917 was turned into an operating deficit of $10,858,926 in 1919. The Canadian Pacific, on the other hand, came  ouj: with net operating earnings of  $32,429,475.  Extending the analysis" by measuring both earnings "and operating e*  penses by combined ton and passen  ger miles, it is found that whiie ther*  Canadian Na'tional increased gross  earnings from .831 in 1917 to 1.112  cents in 1919. the Canadian Pacific advanced from .897 to 1.282. This was  equal' to a gain of 35.0 per cent. in'Orie  case and 42.9 in, the other. With respect to operating expenses, however,  the government group rose from .681  to 1.252, while the Canadian Pacific  went up from .591 to 1.027. The difference in .one instance was 83.9 per  cent, and 01*1 the other 73.8. Putting  it in another and suggestive wayr  while the difference bet-vyeen the two  systems was 15.2 per cent, in 1917, adverse to the Canadian National, in  1919, it was    21.9.     That    difference  Average 'j 382.S  v-  This-result was 38.5 per cent, below  the average trainload of the Canadian  Pacific in 1917 arid 41.1 per cent, in  1919.' It might be assumed that the  striking difference-was due \o unfavorable grades on the. government  reads, but it would be a mistake! The  Canadian Pacific is at a marked disadvantage in that regard.' It has always been the boast of the Canadian  Northern that its .4 per cent, controlling grade was the best of any road of  similar length in North' America; yet  the Canadian Northern had an average trainload of 388.4 tons in 1917 and  fell to 337.9 in 1919. ^That must be  compared with 529.8 and 522.1 on the  Canadian Pacific.  The lighter trainload of the Canadian National is due to fewer cars  hauled. In 1917 the number was 17=2.  but in 1919 this had decreased tb 15.6.  On the other hand, the Canadian Pacific had an average of 22.6 in 1917 and  22.2 in 1919.  ���������  Wages and Employees Compared.  It was during the year ended Jurte  30, 1919, that the McAdoo award began to make its pernicious influence  felt among the railways of North  "America, and it would seem to be perfectly fair to compare the way in  which thi3 difficulty was mejt by the  Canadian National atid the Canadian  Pacific. Two tests, have been applied,  and the results are rather significant.  The first deals with the" volume of  wages per ton and passenger mire  combined. The showing is as follows:  (sMS* I ORE A  For Infants and Children  its Use For ������vsr 3������ Years  Always bears  Y;  ' the '     v-  Slgnature of  1917  1919  Increase  Can.

Second/the Canadian   tells us plainly how much better the  Pacific had a larger average haul; and | Canadian Pacific was able to meet the  third, thc Canadian Pacific had a  higher traffic density.  .With these more or less basic facts  in mind, it is now important to apply  analytical methods to some of the details which spring therefrom. In the  operating ratio we have at once a  strong clue to the field in which weakness or faulty administration is likely  to be found, and let it be said at-once,  we shall bc rewarded Hy several rather  One,   of    thc two explanations are] startling discoveries as   we   proceed?  necessary in relation to tlie foregoing   For  this  inquiry  the  years 1917 nnd  table. _ It docs not include thc mileage of thc Grand Trunk nor of a  number    of   branch    nnd    subsidiary  1919 are selected, for good and definite reasons.

If these were all  brought in the mileage of thc Canadian National would rise to 22,500.  But the Grand Trunk had not been  officially taken ovcr by June 30, 1919,  which happens, for reasons not creditable to the new Dominion Bureau of  Statistics, to-be the last year for which  information is available on a basis  permitting of direct eornpaV-sons. The  units which will be with the Canadian  Pacific are. the Canadian Northern,  the Grand Trunk Pacific, thc National  Transcontinental and thc Intercolonial, They contribute the mileage in  the statement. If the.omitted mileage and thc operating results therefrom were brought in thcy would  merely serve to make matters worse.

In  the latter thcy had been for a full year  and more qnder government control,  That fact at once suggests the pertinent question as to what were the general results of the change. Were betterments brought about? Was administration strengthened or weakened? Let the facts give the answers.  Excessive   Transportation   Expenses.  Since all the operations of a rajlway  find their focus in the running of  trains, the cost of transportation be-  romes fundamental, In this instance  we shall be just to the Canadian National units In comparing thetn with  the Canadian Pacific, We must first,  however, find a satisfactory gage.

Trainload and Carload Tests.  A. very strong, sidelight is thrown  on thc operating .results as expressed  in terms of dollars and cents, and we  begin to catch a clear glimpse of  weakness in fundamentals, when we  look into the trainload and carload  situation on the Canadian National as  contrasted with that on the Canadian  Pacific. The fact will spare me from  any comment whatever.  In carload the Canadian National is  open to serious criticism. It was  only one ton below the average of the  Canadian Pacific in 1917 and it picked that up in 1919., ..That is the single  sign of betterment in operating con-  Average ...... .415  These figures must be contrasted'  with averages of .344 and .625 by the  Canadian Pacific. Incidentally, this  test reveals the extent to which the  swollen payroll effected operating cost  of all railways in Canada up to 1919.  Buf while the Canadian Pacific was  able to keep the.Increase.down.to 78.S  per cent, the Canadian National, dealing with precisely the same conditions  as to scale and classification, had an  addition of 94,7 per cent.  The second test related to the combined^ ions and passenger miles per  employee. As to number of y employees, the Canadian Pacific, between  1917 and 1919, met a decline of 21.8  ,fper cent, in ton and passenger miles  by cutting down the operating staff by  2.1 per cent. The Canadian National,  o the other had, had a drop of 9.1 per  cent, in the same mileage yet added  to the number of employees by 21.8  on thc other hand, had a drop of 9.1 per  and passenger miles by employees,  was the following performances:  1917       1919  Canadian Northern .. 285,908   154,399  G.

'     "    '  The Results,In 1920.  The facts for the fiscal year 1928  cannot be presented in comparative  form for two reasons in chief. First,  the essential factor' of loaded car  mileage is lacking; second, the year  to which the. figures recently presented to parliament'relate ended December 31st instead of June 30. Some  general comparisons,* however, can be  made, subject to the qualifications as  to the difference in years.  The operating ratio in 1920 to 124.01  and the operating deficit to $36,842,-  970. This should be compared with  a ratio of 81.39 by the Canadian Pacific and a net operating revenue of $33,-  153,045.  Operating expenses per ton and  passenger mile combined were equal  to 1.567 cents on the Canadian National and 1.1/9 on the Canadian Pacific. Without making allowance for  the difference in the years, it may be  said that these results showed a'  worsening by 25.1 per cent, over 1919  on the "government system, as compared with an increase of 14.8 per  cent, on the corporate road. An important, but quite unavoidable qualification in those and succeeding results is that they do not induqe fig-'  ures from the Grand Trunk Pacific.  Data as to milea'ge for that road are  lacking, which prevents their being  brought in. The effect would, however, quite definitely be to aggravate  the situation-as disclosed by the other,  units, for the Grand Trunk Pacific in  1920 made much the worst showing  in its history.  Measuring transportation expenses  by ton and passenger miles_in 1920  the result gives .774 per cent for the  Canadian National .and .556 for the  Canadian Pacific. In this particular  test the showing of the government  roads was worse by 23.6 per cent, in  1920 over 1919, as compared with an  increase of 10.5 per-cent, by the Canadian Pacific.  In short, if a full and accurate comparison could be made as between  operating results on the Canadian  National lines in 1917 and in 1920 it  would unquestionably .show not only  a serious aggravation of all the condition s, but a much greater, increase  in the^adverse showings that was experienced by the Canadian' Pacific.  The point which should be "given  proper .emphasis is that, while the  Canadian National system is fundamentally weak, operating Tesults have  Seen made worse yeSar by year by unskilled,,wasteful and incompetent administration. There cannot;possibly  be any doubt of that, and it has a  vital bearing on the exceedingly perplexing, Canadian railway problem at  this* moment."  133,563  181,940  167,831  KEEP CHILDREN WELL  DURING HOT WEATHER  Every mother knows how fatal the  hot summer months are to small children.

The decrease in the case of the  government roads was equal to 24.8  per cent, in the case of thc Canadian  Pacific 20,3. The contrast by employees is obvious.

"Hayes, Editor and Owner,  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, AUG. 23  L  ^"3  THE RESSEBYfBB LISTER  By UN FIL DU SOLD AT, in Ths,  VnUsiFs-  Recently (July 22nd) an article  appeared in one of our daily papers  (the Province) under the heading,  "laster Colony on Way toSucces8.,i'  That was all we heard about success. The article was brimful of  the -grievances aud difficulties of  the soldier-fcettlers and did not state  bk what way, or in what line the  settlement was or could be pro  nounced a success; and it only offered one suggestion as to what  could be done to remedy conditions.  viz, by the government spending  more money in appointing a more  tactful     superintendent. Who  is the new man who is looking for  the job?  Ae a resident of the district for  The Conservative opposition  made great use of the grievances of  the soldier-farmer boys in the  camp.  Men in Camp are Not Farmers  I lived in the camp at the time  and observed the workings of the  campaign. The. soldier boys, in  the camp are fine fellows. But*  j?ith no-disrespect to them, I say  they are better soldiers than farmers. I believe a large percentage  of them, and I hope all. of them,  ��������� will turn out to be good farmers,  but up to the present the $4.00 a  day wage is the big attraction and  magnet and supporter of the colony.  If this $4.00 a day wage were  withdrawn, I believe the camp, as  a camp, wonld collapse, though I  believe a large percentage would  hang on to the land, if .they could  manage it any shape or form.  This is the actual condition of  things. The men and women there  are first and foremost soldiers and  soldiers' wives. Few of them have  had any experience on a farm, and  although they have been in the  camp now going on two years, they  have not yet had any farming or  fruit ranching experience. They  have been employed as-laborers by  the executive at Victoria to clear  land and make rough roads, so that  only about 5 per cent, of them have  gone in for any farming or ranching.  There are abont 10 of the settlers  who have bought stock���������a cow, a  few pigs, a horse���������while the others  saving the little overplus out of the  84.00 per day, and placing it in the  bank, waiting for further and fut-  ture- developments; while about a  dozen of the men find the  bought a dozen chickens sothafl  could get eggs and I bought small  pigs so that I could get pork and  bacon, and I planted potatoes and  onions, and ih sis months I was out  of the reach of starvation. Then  I planted small ,fteit trees, strawberries, .    currants,     gooseberries,  specie  est at 5 per cent., either in  (cash) or in labor value.'r  The executive would have and  has large public works always going on, and these men could' b& engaged as much as possible,now and  again to do tho wbrkyoi? -tBe-aseo-  utive government.

JACKSON  has not entered the colony yet. It  is the servant or laborer or soldier  spirit that dominates: So much  so, that the- ''Great War Veterans'  Association" of the camp dominat-  -rd the camp during last fall's election, and. the hoys could not realize  that they were farmers and not soldiers. One ���������of their most longheaded comrades, a man by the  name of Magee, told them: ''Boys,  We must forget that we were sol  diers; we must now realize that we  fire farmery and we must act as  farmers, and adapt ourselves to the  new conditions." But he was  howled down for saying so.  Now,,the first thing these boys  (I call them boys, for with two or  three exceptions they are mostly  young men, or men under 40, while  only one or two are above 50)���������the  first thing they must do is to get j  away from the "camp"1 idea and  surveilance and become as brave  and active and Intelligent farmers  as they were soldiers.  Their nightmare is a dread that  the executive government at Victoria will close down on their $4.00  a day joba That's not a farmer  spirit. That is the laborer, the sol  dier, the hired man's spirit, whose  job is his god. He spells job with  a capital J.  Government Spoiled Settlers  A farmer in the Creston and  Canyon City districts, near Lister,  told the writer:  "The executive government has  spoiled these soldiers-settlors by  givirg them these $4.00 a day jobs.  When I and the rest of us Canyon  fellows came here, we oame on our  our own resources and did the beat  we could, and I can assnr-o you it  was mighty rough and hard at  times. I came here with very little  0���������m fow hundred dollars���������and I hud  a wife and two children to support,  but by God's help 1 toiled on and  made a success of my little farm.  I became a farmer, a randier and I  did the things that would yield me  the b������-������fc and quiokeet reunite t\  bought a  cow  to get milk and I  Then I planted.apple trees and pear  jtrees and plums and peaches. I believe if the cralches were kicked  away frons these fellows in Lister  that iii six months instead of  groans of complaints we would hear  songs of praise.''  That was the experience and expression of a Canyon settler, & m&n  ol 55, who had been in the Canyon,  a place about three miles from Lister, * or oyer jlv years, anu ue uSu  made good. ,_  In Lister, I mean in Camp Lister, you cannot buy eggs or butter  or milk or cheese ot potatoes or  cabbages or the small early fruits.  The settlers there, with the exception I have mentioned, have not-  gone in for farming or ranching.  So the problem is to make farmers  of these splendid fellows.  But how oan this be accomplished? Tlie Canyon farmer will tell  you that the only way is to cut  these men away from their $4.00 a  day job and let them do for- themselves. But I do not agree with  this. I believe iu cutting off the  $4.00 a day, but I also believe that  a better substitute should be found  and I believe a better, safer, quicker and mors economical nlan should  be initiated.  Men Can Save Nothing  With $4.00 a day, these men can  hardly get ahead of the game of life  sufficient to buy any stock whatever. -    -  If these men, however, had a  year's wages,- or let us say $1500 in  cash to their credit in .the bank,  what .could they, not do? The money would amountr -<to about one  year's wages.- iWHe-men 'should be'  abie to draw on this $1500 as they  required it by overseer's endorsement to their cheques. That iB to  say, if the settler wanted a cow, or  two cows, he could go to the overseer and say so and give particulars. Of course I need not give  details. All this could be a matter  of business arrangements. I simp  ly indicate a feasible policy and sol  ution. The cows 'would be bought  and your settler vvould immediately become a farmer, a producer and  he would study that' particular  branch of it. He could also buy  chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, pigs  and become a greater producer, and  he wcnld -within a few weeks find  his job, hi* big god, right at home.  That would give the man a start.  The difficulty of the men at Lister  now is to get or make a start.  It was a mistake, in my opinion,  for the executive at Victoria to offer to build houses and clear five  acres and guarantee jobs at $4.00 a  day. This half-baked lopsided effort at cooperativenesa or communism is about as crazy a scheme as  any fanatic ever propounded. If  you want real'co-operation, it must'  he of the people themselves and for  the people themselves and not halfhearted paternal legj-alation. If we  are ever to secure perfedl and ideal  communal life it must be a growth  of tho pooplo themselves, and a  form whioh that growth will assume, and not something imposed  on ineongruons, incoherent, diversified minds and opinions.  If the exeoutive of the per pie had  at the beginning said: uWe have  millions of aores in EC crying for  settlors. Wo realize that we must  initiate something to get this land  settled, so wo will loan $1000.00 in  cash to bona fide settlers, or 92000  or $8000. Let $8000 be the limit*  This money will be plaoed to the  cottier's "credit under restrictions  and it can be paid back eo the>x*  ooutivo within 20 yours, with inter-  yet heard one adverse criticism to  plan.

In  either case it would entail an enormous expense on foreign territory, so  to speak.  Take for example: 1 judge the distance from jfche' Canyon say to Teddy  Haskins is about two miles, and even  then the water would haye to be raised  150 or 200 feet, which leads us to enquire if we have not a suitable place  where we can get water���������better water  many times over for irrigation, and at  much less expense.  We now turn to Kootenay flats and  we find that there is a slough several ���������"  miles Jong, and deep, and rich in plant  food and fertilizer such as is not found  probably anywhere else in British  Nortn America. Instead, therefore,  of developing an irrigation pipe, etc,  say two miles long without receiving  any revenue, would, it not be" better  to bring the water, from the Dow  slongb straight. through tbe ravine  that leads fsoua the' Mallandaine residence to Haskins, and we would have  a pipe line that .would be revenue producing all of the way, and thus s������ve  the two miles of expense, besides the  enormous expense of developing the  Goat River canyon.   , *  -' When one trayels west on theCP.  R. they leave Brickrbn.     A couple of  miles by rail and Creston looms up  because of its unp'aralelled grandeur  and its incomparably magnificence*' affording  a  panorama  of  eye-enticing  >cenes which thrill .the vejy soul with  gladness.     Then 'why   not   develop  Creston by putting i& a" pumping station station somewhere; -around   the  bHdg������.ne������r?MallandaIhe,8;kwhirlr sta-  H<in_ whpn _ -sot- need**'' for - ijrj'iga.tion"  epuld be used to develop electricity for.  our town.'  . My idea is this: Put in an irrigation  pipe to,run as far as Andy Anderson'*-*,  then put -in a ���������*Y" and have one pipe  go ab far us Haskins* and the other, go  through the ravine, at Leai-month's,  Mb-8. Wilson's, etc.. which would rise  well up on Blinco'*** ranch. In order to  relieve the pipe fi'Otri^too much strain  and toMipply the- higheu- elevations I  would suggest reservoir at every point  of elevation to, the height of 100 feet,  And at such reservoirs���������which need  only be small���������have an electric pump.  The idea of Having a'power house  within a few pole,lengths of the town,  from an .economic standpoint, should  appeal to any sane *uiind. If almost  half of om- people were willing lo soak  a given area $225,000 for the biggest  wildcat scheme in history, surely they  would not object to spending $50,000  on something tangible, safe and  sound.

STEAD  Published By Special Arrangement With the Author.  (Continued)  But it was not only on Harris's  homestead that development was taking place. As McCrae had predicted, there was a considerable movement of settlers into the district* and  at several points their tents or rude  houses now broke the vast sweep of  the 'horizon. Tom Morrison had  found land to the satisfaction of his  heart within three miles of the Harris homestead, and his big log-house,  eighteen by,twenty-four, assumed the  proportions of a castle by comparison  with the smaller homes springing up  Wound. Some milc_s to the cast Dick  Matheson, straight "from the lumber  camps of the Madawaski, had pitched  his tent, and a few miles farther on  was his friend of the shanties, John  Burton. To the west were the  Grants, and to the north Hiram Riles  and his wife, Eliza. A mixed community they were, drawn from many  corners, and all of them more or less  under the heel of poverty;-but they  were filled with enthusiasm, with resourcefulness, and an indomitable determination to face and overcome all  obstacles. " A missionary had iii some  way spied out the field, and held  monthly Sunday services at Morrison's house; and'Dr. Blain, when not  in one of his unfortunate debauches,  had his headquarters at the new town  of Plainville, which consisted of  Sempter's general store and a "stopping-place," and which- had sprung up  near the junction of two streams in  anticipation of  the railway..  None of these pioneers was possessed Of a complete farming equipment,  but    each    had    something which his  neighbor lacked, and they made common cause tokether, in their struggle  with  Nature.      Thus  Harris  had j~o  mower, but when haying season came  he was able to borrow Morrison's, at  the same time lending his plough to.  Riles, who simultaneously accommodated    Morrison    with   his    hayrack.  Among**** the    women exchanging became something of an exact science.  Mrs. Grant was the proud possessor  of a very modern labour-saver in the  shape of a clothes-wringer, as a consequence of which wash-day was rotated throughout the community, and  It was well known that Mrs. Riles and  Mrs. Harris had to do their churning  alternately.     But it was Mrs. Morrison's   sewing-machine   that  was   the  great boon to the community, and to.  it,    perhaps,    as    much as the open-  hearted   hospitality   of   honest   Tom  and his wife, was due the    fact    that  their hotise became the social-centre  of the 'district.  Nor was the settlement deprived of'  its share of "sport    and    amusement.  On one of his periodical visits McCrae  donated a baseball, and Harris quickly  shaped a bat from the trunk of a stout  willow he found    by    the    river-bed.  They had all outdoors to play in, and  it was  a simple matter to mow the  grass from a stretch of level prairie  and" turn ovcr thc sod   at   points   to  mark     the      bases.      Unfortunately,  there were not enough men    in    the  community    to   make    two   baseball  teams, but a^ species of game was devised in which the players batted in  turn, and when  not batting or base-  running were always    on    the   "out"  side.     Harris developed considerable  ability as a pitcher, throwing the powerful straight ball which in those days  was   a   greater   menace   to   the   bare  hands of the catcher than to thc bat*  Heals Infiamed Nostrils,  Stops Catarrhal Discharge,  Relieves Colds Quickly  You'll be pleasantly surprised at the  quick action Catarrhozone jias upon  Catarrhal conditions in the mose and  throat.

It  was a cumbrous, wooden-frame contrivance,  guiltless  of the roller bearings, floating aprons, open elevators,  and sheaf carriers of a later day, but  it  served  the purpose,  and with its  aid the harvest of the little settlement  Was    safely    placed ihr sheaf.      The  farmers  then  stacked  their  grain  in  the fields, taking care to plough double  fire-guards,    with    a burnt spjace between, as a precaution against the terrifying fires which broke . over    the  prairie as soon    as    the    September  frosts had_dried the grass.     Ajcom-  munity sdtne twenty miles to the eastward boasted- a threshing* mill, and arrangements were made for its use after it had discharged the duties of its  own locality.     The machine,was driven by horse-gower, and in the dawrn of  the  crisp  November    mornings    the  crescendo of its metallic groan could  be heard for miles across the brown  prairie.      It, too, with its hand feed,  its open straw-carriers, its low-down  delivery, which necessitated digging a  hole in the frozen earth to accommo*1  date the bags, and its possible capacity pf sixliundred bushels a. day, bears  mean  comparison with   (its    modern  successor; but it thresh eel-grain at a  lower cost per busfifel, and threw less  into the straw than has ever been accomplished by the mighty steam and  gasoline  inventions  which  have  displaced it. '   o  When Harris's threshing was done  he found he had six hundred bushels  of wheat and seven hundred bushels  of  oats  in  cone-shaped piles  on his  fields.     The roads were fine and hard,  and ao snow had.yet fallen, so he determined to begin at once with  the  marketing    of    his wheat.   , His last  cent had been spent months before;  indeed, it had been only through the  courtesy of the storekeeper at ������Plain-  ville, who was  also postmaster, and  who    had    stretched    thc law to the/  point of accepting hen eggs as legal  tender    in    exchange    for    postage  stamps, that Mary Harris   had   been  able to keep up the brave, optimistic  series of letters written "home."     So  Harris decided that he -would at once  market, some of his wheat.     Most of  the oats would be    needed    for    his  horses and for seed, and what remained would commahd good prices from  new settlers the following spring, but  some of -the wheat must    be"    turned  into money at once.     During the latter part of thc summer they,had lived  exclusively on the produce    of    their  farm; on vegetables from the garden,  fish and ducks from the^trcam, prairie  chickens, and an    occasional    rabbit  from thc fields.     Thc wild geese had  deserted them early in the spring, and  returned only after harvest.     But now  they should have a change on their  table.        Mary    had    accepted    thc  pioneer fare  of the summer, without  complaint, but oMatc Harris had dis-  ter at thc plate.     On thc occasion of   covered ia strange longing in *her eyes,  his monthly visit?-thc missionary, who   and more than once she had  was ai? ardent ball-player, generally  contrived io reach Morrison's by Saturday afternoon, and so was able to  take part in the Saturday night game.  And although he never took advantage of his association with thc young  men Jo "preach*' to them, except on  Sundays, a sense of comradeship  eprang up, and a standard of sport  was established which bore fruit in  the community many years later.  And so the first summer wore away  and the first harvest was at han.i. Any  disnppointmfnt which had heen occa*  sloncd by backward conditions earlier  In the season was effaced by thc wonderful crop which now crbwn������d the  efforts of thc pionccr-i, On thrir finest Eastern farms they had scon  nothing to-equal the great stand of  wfcat and oafs whirh now rnvelopr-rl  them, neck-high, whenever ������hey invaded it. Thc great problem before the  settlers wan the harvesting of this  crop. It was a mighty task to attempt with their scythes, but there  was no self-hinder, or even reaper,  within many miles,  Finally Morrison solved the problem for thc whole community by placing nn  order, at :i large figure, for a  KeepYour tyfes  Clown - Clear -������- Hoolthy  stfrltm tor I,am Cy~ Ctrm Hunt* Murln* Cft-..0-t������-*g->,U-r>A.  mtmmtm*  W.

So now hc set out for Emerson with  the best load liis horses could draw.  The first few mile-.** l*c drove in silence,  for there was a heavy weight at his  heart as he thought of the little wife  alone with tlie. responsibilities of thc  farm. . , . That she would be  faithful fo every responsibility wa.s beyond question. . . . But hc was  not quite satisfied.

Rut this morning as lie drove the  well-worn trail, a burnished slin  mounted higher and -higher ahead of  him, and Kvitli it his own spirits rose  until he found himself whistling and  boyishly building castles in thc air.  But hir. castles, as he told himself,  had solid foundations; indeed, they  were not even speculations, but -already i Zip,)n he accepted as assured  accomplishments. Some things he  certainly must do for Mary. First of  these was the purchase of a glass window for the house, and next to that  he promised enough boards for a door,  and perhaps enough to floor part of  their little room. Then there should  be sugar, anrl tea, and flour, and warm  boot*, nnd inomr n,nnh-t\tt,i.rj\ kitchen  utensils. True, he" needed tome  thing**) him������e"!f, hut his n������'eds ronld  wait. Anrl then \ht-rr vure other  thing's.      Oh,  lie  Iiii'",-  v. hut  to  get.  He hadn't been having little confer-j  ences with Mrs. Morrison for nothing. . - . . A tender smije gently  suffused his face, and his cheery  whistle soared-, above the ��������� rumble of  the wagon-wheels on the hard lumps  of the trail.  Ten days lajer he retraced his  course in the teeth of a blinding ^blizzard. " A dozen times he had beets  lost in the forty-eight hours, but he  had developed the prairie-dweller's  sense of direction, and had always  been able again to locate ihe trail.  The Arthurs would have detained"  him, almost by force, but the-thought  of a pale, patient face, wrung with an  agony of anxiety not for itself, made  him adament in his resolve to go  home at whatever cost. The roads  were almost- impassable; he left his  lumber at Arthurs', but carried with  him his window, a few boards for a  door, and a little bundle of drygoods.  Everything h\se had gone by the  wdy, surrendered in exchange for  food and shelter for himself and  horses.  It was not dreadfully cold, but the  sky seemed only a vast turmoil of  snow. The north-west wind pelted  the flakes in his face, where they  melted with the warmth qf his skin  and again drooped in tenacious icicles  from his eyebrows and moustache.  -The horses, too, were half blinded  with the storm, and the empty wagon  dragged laboriously through the, deep  drifts. Darkness came down very  early, but at last Harris began to  recognize familiar landmarks close  by the trail, and just as night was settling in he drew into the partial'-sheK  ter of the bench on .the bank of the  coulee. The -horses pulled on their  reins persistently for the. stable, but  Harris forced them up to the house.  His loud shout was whipped away by  the wind and strangled in a moment,  so he climbed stiffly from the wagon  and pulled with numbed hands at the  double thickness of carpet that did  ^service for a -door. He fancied he  heard a sound, but could be sure of  nothing; he called her nanie again and  again, but could distinguish no ah--  swer. But at last the fastenings  which held the carpet gave way, and  he half walked, half fell, into the  house. ���������'"-���������  The lantern burned dimly, but it  was not at the lantern he looked. In  the farthest corner, scarcely visible in  the feeble light, stood his wife, and  a** her shoulder was the gun, trained  steadily "Upon him. '  "Mary, Mary, don't you know me?"  he cried.        ,  She* dropped her weapon to the  floor, where.it went off, harmlessly  burying its charge "in the sod wall.  "Thank God, oh, thank God!" she  exclaimed.  ��������� -'He threw off his wet overcoat and  rushed tb Yher side. But;*.. she sat  silent on the bed, staring absently at  the light flickering uncertainly in the  wind from,the open door. .  He hastily re-arranged the carpet,  then, returning to her, he took her  hands in his and rubbed them briskly.  But she still stared vaguely, at the  light.  Suddenly a thought came to him.  He rushed outside, to find that the  horses ,of their own accord, had taken shelter beside the.stable. Here  from the wagon he drew a little bundle and hurried back to the house.  She was sitting where he left her,  shivering slightly" and watching the  play of the light as it flickered up and  down the wall. Hc tore the package  open and spread its contents before  her.  At first she took no-noticc, but gradually her eyes found the outline of  soft cloth and dainty feminine devices.  With a great joy lie watched the colour returning as l,icr set face'fclaxed  in a smile of ineffable'' tenderness.  She raised her face to his and slipped her arms about his neck, and" ne  knew that for'the moment he had  snatched her out of the valley of the  shadow.
