STEAD  Published By Special-Arrangement With ihe Author.    ^  j (Stops Bronchitis Quickly  Helps Irritable Throat  tg, Cong  (Continued)  Harri's read the letter through, not  without some difficulty. At first he  was inclined to laugh, but the earnestness of Riles impressed him through  the makeshift English.  "What d'ye think of it. "Dad?" said  the younger man,    at    length.      "Of  course we dou't know anything about j  coal, but then������������������"  "It must look good to Riles or he  wouldn't want to put any money in it,"  commented Harris, after a few minutes' reflection. "Riles is pretty  cautious. He's got money in the  bank drawin' three per cent.; he's  afraid to lend it. out among the farmers. And he ain't easy talked into a  ne*v? scheme, either."  "D'ye suppose we could sell the  farm?" The idea of a big, profitable  speculation suddenly appealed to Allan with much greater force than the  prospect of three years on a homestead. He "knew that vast sums of  money had been made, and made,  quickly, in the Far West, but he had  never before thought of himself or his  father sharing in this sudden wealth.  They had worked hard for their  money and tok it as a matter of  course that they should continue to  work hard for it. But the vision of  quick riches, the prospect of realizing it in- his own person, the dizzy  thought that Fortune, -whJSh had  seemed to move Jn a circle quite  apart from his existence, ��������� might actually now be within a hand's reach���������  these intoxicated him with a sudden  hope which burst the old bounds of  his imagination and set'up new and  wilder ambitions.  "D'ye suppose we could sell the  farm?" he repeated. It began to  seem that the short-cut to wealth  hinged on the possibility of selling  the farm.  "I guess Ave could sell it, all right,"  said    Harris.      "Maybe .not for that  much cash, but' we can get cash on  'the agreement, if we need it."      He,  too, found the inborn gaming instinct  which   cries  out   for  money   without  labour welling within him and  surging  up   against   his  long-established,  sober judgment.      But lie was not a  man to act precipitately, or risk air on  a single throw unless he were Very,  very sure of. the result. *%'       ���������.---���������    "Of course, maybe -. it's ��������� all right,"  he continued. "But it's a,good thing  to buy ^our buggy; before you throw  away your,,, cart. I'f this thing's as  good as Riles says, it will keep until  .we pan see it for ourselves. If it  don't somethin' else'll turn up."

Couldn't you fix it some way, to get the  money without coining back, if everything looks all right? That'd save  time, and expense too."  "There's something in that. There's  time to see Bradshaw yet before the  train comes. We'll kind o' leave it  standin' in his hands/'  They made a hurried call on Bradshaw, the lawyer, and asked him to  be on the look-out for a buyer for the  farm.  "Mind, I'm not actu'lly puttin' it  up for sale," Harris cautioned., him,  "but I want you to keep your eye open  for a buyer. Forty thousand dollars  takes the whole thing as a goin' concern, -an' the' more cash the better.  Get a line on a buyer if you can, and  if I send you word to sell, see, you  sell, and if -I don't send you word,  don't do anythin'.     You understand?"  "I think I understand you perfectly," said the lawyer, who was also a  dealer in real estate. Iudeed, since  the activity in farm lands had . commenced he might be said to be a. real  estate dealer who was also a lawyer.  "Not - many ��������� buyers have that much  ready, cash, Mr. Harris, but it could  no doubt be arranged to sell your  agreement, or raise a mortgage on  the property, that would give you the  whole amount in your hand." Bradshaw, along with his other pursuits,  was agent' for a mortgage company,  and . always  valued  two  commissions  jhle, and again they took the train.  Riles met them oh the station platform. He had met every train for a  week, as it had been agreed that it  would he better that the Harrises'  should not visit Gardiner's ranch until^ plans weir6 more fully developed:  Jim was still there, and Gardiner insisted that Jim should not meet Harris at present. He allowed Riles to  think that he "feared trouble if former  employer arid employee should meet;  as a. matter of fact, he feared that if  their-coal mine proposition should  reach the ears of Travers the young  man would attempt to dissuade" Harris from having anything to do with  it, or at least would urge a fuller investigation than might be desirable.  Besides, he*meant to make of Travers  an unwjttlng party to the affair.  Riles, in overalls and shirt-sleeves,  leaned against the iron rail at the  back of the station platform, his big  hands stuffed in the bulging band of  his trousers,.- and his under-jaw busy  with aii ample ration of- tobacco. He  watched the passengers alighting from  the train with little interest; he had  no particular expectations of meeting  Harris on this occasion, and, if the  truth be_tbld, he had little desire to  meet him. , Riles had no pangs of  conscience over' his- part in the plot  against his old neighbour, but he had  an Uneasy feleing of cowardice. When  suddenly his. eye fell on Harris and  his big, strapping son, his first impulse was to slip away in the crowd  before they should notice him. But.  it was oniy for a moment; the next,  Harris was calling, " Xo Hiram," and  the two were shaking" hands as old  friends met in a far country.  "Didjaget my letter?" asked Riles,  ignoring the- commonplaces with  which" it was their custom to Introduce any important topic. "Didja  sell the farm-1^"  "I got the letter, Hiram, but I didn't  sell the farm. Thought we'd just  have'a look over this coal mine before  goin' into the business altogether."-  "H-s-li. -.

"      . -  "Well, ain't we going to put up  somewhere?" said Allan, breaking the  silence that followed Riles' warning.  "There ought to" be an Alberta hotel  here, somewhere. - I- saw one in  every town* for the last two hundred  miles."  "I got. that beat,'.' said Riles,  with  a  snicker.

With this understanding the journey  westward   was  undertaken,  and   completed   without   event   of  importance.  As his daughter had done a few weeks  before, and his wife^still later, Harris  spent a few hours in-the young city  just  beginning:  to  stir* itself on  the-  sleepy, sunny slopes where tlie prairies  ran into  the  foothills  stretching  one last'long.*.tongue, far up the valley  of the Bow and lapping at the feet of  the eternal, snows. ���������** His original plan-  had .been to spend* ...a day or two in  Calgary, "sizing up" the land situation  for himself ;before joining Riles, but  the-possibilities of the coal, mine speculation had grown   upon   him    with  every mile of the joiijraey,     He had  only to use his  ears' to hear of so  many men, apparently no . more capable men than he and Allan, who had  grown suddenly ,1-ich  from  fortunate  investments.     It was a case of recognizing the; opportunity when  it presented itself, and having the nerve to  seize it without hesitation.     He found  himself now in a country and an atmosphere  where  "jjlaying safe"  was  somewhat    to    a    man's    discredit���������  where   the   successful   man  was  the  man who dared* to throw discretion to  the winds and take the chance.     And  because    money,   not,   earned in the  country, was pouring ih from outside,  and by its own buoyancy raising the  price of land and labour, tlje chance,  even the foolish chance, was likely to  turn out. to advantage and justify the  daring of the speculator rather than  the  discretion  of tho  careful  buyer.  Harris had all his life, lived in an atmosphere of conservatism, where saving a penny was greater merit than  making two,  but he was amazed to  And how quickly the gambling spirit  of tho new land seized upon him. Unlike Riles, he was a man who responded to his environment; fn a community of hard-working, money-saving farmers  he  worked  hardest and  saved  most;   but in a community of rook-  leas, unlicensed speculation ho had the  qualities which would soon make of  him the greatest gambler of thera all.  He  was astonished    and    somewhat  frightened by this hitherto unrevealod  side or lila own character.     His long-  dormant imagination began to revive;  with Imagination came hope and optimism;  and .hope and optimism* unchecked, soon breed recklessness. Ho  saw the evidence of* prosperity   on  every  side���������not  the   prosperity  that  hedges   it self   about with socialisms  and affected dignity, but the prosperity that stays on the Job In Its shirt-  sleeves.     He saw men who wore doing    big    things���������building    railways,  opening up wildernesses, farming or  carrying on business transactions on a  acal<*rof which ho had never dreamed  ���������and he b������������an to see that tho Ott ly  rc&Kftn   theae   men   could do these  things was that, they dared to do them,  W*11, be tnts���������he    and    Alltm���������would  Aare mine things.   .   .   .

"As I said, it's Gard'ner you'll have t'  thank i'or this thing, good or bad.

He says there's all kinds o' money in  it, an' I reckon that's what we came  out here for: ain't it?" ,,~  "Yes; provided the thing's sound,"  said Harris.  $ -"Anyone can se'e 'with  half an eye that there's easier ways -  of makin' money than bustin' up this-  prairie sod for it.

"Well, I got a. quarter."-  "A quarter apieceYl mean."  "Well, I got a quarter apiece," said  Harris.

Nevertheless, we seem to  have many new things���������days and  seasons; new tokens of old  friendships growing stronger, of  old love becoming^ deeper," new  sight and insight. Just now we  are out to have a new year given  us. Or, we are somewhat like  travelers.. , We ascend the chariot of the year, and rolls where  cKoriot wheels have left no mark.  Where scenes which have never  yet been revealed to man or  angel, will unfold themselues. No  one can teii how much we may  miss by being asleep, or only half  awake.  Jjet us set out only after care-  fa] seif-inspeeticn.  Among other  things le-fr us calmly���������and search  ingly review our faults." These  may have been accumulating  with the years. We are apt to  think muoli of the failings of  others, and little or not at ail of  our own. We are apt to imagine  tiiat we because we are'.free from  their faults we are-comparative  ly faultless. We may have other  and-worse faults than our neighbors. Let us be open to conviction. Let us deal-faithfully with  ourselves. Avoid the error of  comparing with those who may  be worse off than we, but look  rather to-our advantages, opportunities, knowledge, professions  with the law of God.  Let us determine to abandon  everything we should not tafce  -with us! Asi&he orbltPsaid. "If  I haye done iniquity, I will do no  more." Should the evil Course or  evil passions solicit, let it plead  in vain while, we listen to the  judge who says. .

Abandon the  tempting, transient, tainting  things that ultimately toftnent.  Set out this year determined  totse isnselSsliiy useful-ana help  ful to all fellow  travellers,    ask  again the ancient question,  "What wilt thou have tne to  do?"

Good is better  and stronger thau evil. Truth  has eternal advantage over all  delusions and falsehoods. "Greater is He that is with us, than  he that is in the world."  Greater is the world above than  the world below. Greater is life  than death. The vanishing years  rise immortal insignificance as  thoy como nearer the great white  throne, &et us rise; with the.  rising years, cherish the moods  that best become them, and give  to our hopes wing and aim high  enough to take us beyojud them  all.

Time For Courage  ��������� ������������������   ��������� ������������������* .,'   - *��������� "���������*  There is-no disguising the fact that conditions throughout thei  cduraging- Nand many people are faced with a difficult winter and  some hardship. In this respect the Canadian Prairie Provinces are  not so very different from other parts of the Dominion and other  countries throughout the world. There is, however) no real reason  why the people of the West should lose heart and indulge in blue  .ruin pessimistic talk. Such an attitude will not help, but will rather  operate to further hinder a return to better, times and conditions. ���������;���������;  Present conditions in the West are bound to be of a temporary  character and no country in the world is capable of more rapid recovery than the Canadian Prairie West. One.misfortune* and;untoward occurrence after another played havoc with agricultural production and marketing this year, and while it may be hard for many  families to maintain themselves this winter, their condition will be  no worse, and in the vast majo'rity'of .cases very much better, than  the early pioneers of this country and of Ontario and the Western  States had to bear. Yet these earlier pioneers held on, revealing>3  determination and courage which in due course brought its reward,  and thousands of them are today enjoying wealth or a secure Ind  comfortable livelihood. Yet they experienced harder and apparently more hopeless conditions than those -with which;:the people of  today.arc confronted. ." ' \   .-���������        Z-Z. *    Y  The next few-months call for the exercise of certain qualities  by all people. First and foremost, there must be individual courage*  determination and energy; the putting forth of:eyiery possible effort  to meet and overcome adverse conditions; an insistent turning away  from the dark side of the picture and a constant hunt for the silver  lining and contemplation of ail the brighter and more hopeful features of the situation. Secondly, there is need for the development  of a spirit of helpfulness, e\7en to the extent of personal sacrifice, in  order that the more fortunately placed ones will rally to the assistance of the less fortunate. In n w7ord, these more difficult times  should develop a strong community spirit.pf helpfulness and cooperation.-, ^-   '���������;'"���������;* . Y\-   -.-__    ���������   ���������'���������'     ';*.  While nobody ever welcomes adversity, it^uoist bel reniembered  that it is in.that hard school that really strong men^ and women  are developed.     When everything in life moves smoothly, without  any great difficulty or obstacle in the way, the individual becomes  soft, loses initiative, becomes weak and lacking in character.     It is  the struggle to overcome,.to achieve, to win,.that makes real men  and creates strong characters.     The man who, overwhelmed by adversity, lies down, is a failure and'would ultimately prove a f-ailure  even under normal and less trying conditions.     But "the man worth  while is the man who can smile when everything goes dead wrong."  And he is the man who will triumph in the end, and in thd more  '��������� successful and brighter days to come, will look back with grim satisfaction and a deep joy to the dark days in which he struggled and  achieved, and won not only worldly success, but strength of char-  *  acter to meet whatever life might bring to him.    *  Toe   Walking   Develops  Strength  Walking on the heel is the attitude  of civilized man alone.

The muscles of the baek are under a  heavy strain and have but little rest.  When the blood is    thin   they    lack  nourishment, and the result is a sensation of pain in those muscles. Some  people think pain in the back means  kidney trouble, but the best medical  authorities   agree   that backache seldom    or   never    has anything to do  with   the   kidneys.     Organic kidney  disease ' may Yaave/   progressed to a  critical    point    without developing a  pain in the back.      This heing  the  case, pain in the back should always  lead the sufferer to look to the condition of his blood.     It will.be found  in    most   cases    that the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills to build up the  blood will stop the sensation of pain  in   the   ill-nourished muscles of the  back.

France Accepts  Naval Agreement  Acceptance   of   U.s7- Proposal    With  Certain Reservations  Washington���������Acceptance" by France  with reservation in the United. States  proposal   of   175,000    tons in capital  jships   each   for   France "  and    Italy,  swept the arms conference forward to  its next major problem���������the submarine issue.      Italy, it was  stated officially, has already accepted the" 175,-  000 ton figure, conditioned only on its  acceptance by France.  Formal announcement of French  acceptance* and details of French reservations apparently were reserved  by the sub-committee of 15 for the  full naval committee of the conference. The sub-committee did break  its silence sufficiently, however, to  publish the messages exchanged by  ��������� Secretary Hughes, and Premier Bria'nd  whi6h led up to the action of the  French delegation. The ' messages  were read and discussed by the subcommittee but the official communique disclosed no more than the texts  of the cables.  The premier's message showed that  reservations attached to acceptance  of the 175.000 capital ship tonnage  had to do with "light cruisers, torpedo boats and submarines." This  has served to bring the conference to  a standstill until the submarine issue  can be solved, when the five-power  capital ship agreement will be completed automatically. It is assumed  the full naval committee was called  to lay out a programme for the dia  cussion of submarines and anti-submarine craft, as the two are interwoven, in French and British opinion.  This    implies    that    the    auxiliaryf  craft    elements   of the plan must be  shaped into agreement before the conference committees can return to ratify th'e capital ship agreement.

The committee- was appointed by  the council at its meeting in Winnipeg in October, 1920, and has held  five meetings. ,. In addition much  study^, has been given between sessions by "its individual members to the  matters entrusted to the committee,  the report states, A������he report was  adopted after a lengthy discussion.  An alternative plan for a pool was  submitted to the committee, the report states, but on account of the  "expressed sentiment in Saskatchewan favoring the re-establishment of  the Canadian Wheat Board," the  committee made no recommendation  on the plan.  The work originally entrusted to  the committee was to ascertain if the  conditions laid down by the council  for the establishment of a wheat pool  couId*"be fulfilled and latterly to make  alternative suggestions, if , deemed  advisable.  The essential conditions laid down  were principally as follows:  (1) A minimum of f60 per cent. of.  the wheat to be-assured to the pool  by enforcable five-year contracts for  the delivery of all their wheat by the  participating farmers.'  ^2)* Arrangement with country  -elevators for the handling of the  wheat of the pool.*"  (3)'    Necessary   financial   arrangements, presumably to enable the pool  management to make cash advances  without hedging or sale until it were  thought wise; and, -  (4)    Certain    amendments    to the  Canada Grain Act.  The committee, in its findings on  these conditions"beIieves - that under  existing conditions' it would' not- be  possible to secure such contracts assuring delivery to the pool for five  years of all tbe Wheat ^of "farmers  raising 60 per cent, of the total, and  that if a sufficient number of farmers  could bo induced to sign such contracts many of them would "find it difficult, if not impossible, to fulfill their  obligations and contracts. Negotiations for handling and. for the financing of the project could not be carried  very far without* first being able to  assure volume jind -continuity, the  finding states. 'The committee did  not, therefore,, enquire into these  matters to any gr^t... extent jYbut it  doubts that a great pooling undertaking under contracts would receive  friendly co-operation from the lin-i  elevator companies.
