Indeed, it was Allan's first longs journey \  anywhere; an excursion to -Winnipeg '  at the time of the summer exhibitionr:  had been the limit of his exeprience  of' travel, and the hard work of the  farm had not ye1t extinguished the  young man's desire for novelty and J  excitement. He looked forward to"!  their expedition with a feeling akin \  to enthusiasm, and he secretly cher-',  ished the hope that their travel*? ���������  might bring them again into the com-1  pany of his mother and sister, for  whom, with the slackening of labour,  he now f^slt an Increasing loneliness.  Harris got off at the railway station  to buy the tickets; Allan went*to the  post office on the odd chance of any |  letters awaiting delivery, and the hir-j  ed man turned the horses homeward. ,  The station agent was, threading his  way through his car report, and remained provokingly unconscious of:  Harris's presence at the ticket win- j  dow. The farmer took no pains to >  conceal his impatience, coughing and  snuffling obviously, but it was not until the last box-car had been duly re-  Corded, that the agent deigned to recognize his existence.

"I barely ate enough to keep alive,  and -what little I did' eat caused great  distress from acid stomach.

Tanlac is Bold by leading druggists  everywhere.  n't I. burn this wire with   one   hot,  short sentence!"  Harris met his son on the'nlatform.  "What d'ye think, Dad? A letter  from Riles."     He drew the crumpled  missive from its envelope.      ".Looks  like a laundry ticket;*' he said, "but,I  figured it out, and he want's you to  sell the farm and buy a coal mine."  (To be continued)  "Weil, I didn't expect anythin," retorted   the  farmer  ."although  you're  just as likely to have it when I don't  How much is a ticket  ���������<*No, lt wouldn't.

"We  can'* get a letter away to Harris any  too soon.

Much of the afternoon was spent in the struggle, and  "Worry!" shorted Harris. "What  do you worry about? You get your  pay, whether It freezes or hails or  snivels up with one.of these Dakota  scorchers."  The agent thought of the piles of  reports on his table, .but as he  thumped the stamp on the tickets he  answered, "Oh, I worry over the  Monroe doctrine." He left the farmer counting his change, and turned  to    his    reports.      "Another   money-  Tomatoes  a3e$-fjpfce$  i -     ---.

The sound of galloping hoofs was  heard outside, and a cowboy from a  neighbouring ranch called at the door  to ask if there was'anything wanted  from town. "Here's your chance to  mail your letter," Gardiner called to  Riles with unnecessary loudness. "Mr.  Riles dropped in here to write a letter," he explained to the rider.  Having with much difficulty folded  his epistle until it could be crumpled  into an envelope, Riles sealed, stamped and addressed It, and a moment  later the dust was rising down the  trail as the cowboy bore the fatal missive to town. The die was cast; the  match had been set to the tinder, and  the fire must now burn thrdugh to a  finish, let it scorch whom lt would.  Gardiner took up the copy, Wded  it carefully, and put it into his pocket-  book. "Now, Mr. Riles.V he said,  we're in for this thing, and there's no  backing out. At least you're In for  It.

The Gamblers  Harris found some difficulty Ip pro- j  vldlng that affairs of the farm would l  proceed satisfactorily during his absence, but at last they were arranged,  if not exactly to his liking, at least in  a manner that promised no serious  loss.     It was most unfortunate that  Mary, In a moment of headstrong passion quite without  precedent In his  experience    of   her, had determined  upon a visit just at the time when she  was particularly ueeded at home.     If  Harris had bcen quite fair he would  have remembered that there had been  no time in tho last twenty-flvc ycara  when  she had not been  needed at  home, and the present occasion was  perhaps no less opportune   fpr   hor  visit than many others.     But he felt  a deep grievance over his wife's conduct, and while he missed her sorely  he was determined that no act of his  should ehorten her visit or imply that  the business of the farm was In any  way {raftering from her absc-nce.     He  had managed their affairs successfully  in the past; he would continue to manage them successfully in the future:  and be only hoped that time would  impress upon her the fact   that   he  was doing everything for the beet.

Firstly, for the-good name  of th������ United Farm-er organization a statemeut-shoul&be forthcoming as to what happened the  Staples $2 membership cheque.  This membership was solicited and  the fee paid in the best of faith.  No matter who suffers, the confidence that Mr. Staples reposed in  Creston Local of tHe-United- Farmers when he paid his membership  must be respected*' or .~Hhb hitherto  good name of_������the .organization in  Creston as well as in other r places  suffer accordingly. On^thfeface of  it no ottyer conclusion can be drawn  than that Creston tmite^T Farmers,  ���������'. .** -~ *  or somei of its officer^, have played  underhand politics-respite, their  policy of honesty,- truth and justice  ���������and the sooner the mess is cleaned up the better.  The other incident thafc aeeds ������x-  -**  * ~* **  plaining is fche now QJaJte jfemoua  "home, 8west home," feature of the  Farmer-Labor advertising. So  many of the ' FarmeF-liabcr supporters have come for word assuring  that they knew nothiiiyg .of the  matter and roundly cbtideming the  party who either wro^4",^lietimblio-  ity, or passed on sticH 'malicious information, thafc it is-'���������quite safe to  say that the better ,e)%igent-of the  Farmer-Laborites, as^wejl -as all  other citizens, are so. heartily  ashamed of each braaen pollfcioal  methods, that unless amends honorable are speedily made an_- effort  will have to bs launched "frbsa the  inside of the Farmer Labor ranks  to clear the air.,  The   public   generally   are   not  slow to forget  the attacks of the  slanderer.*   Tf.they will steal* one  man's* reputation today, they  will  the more readily ruin another,s; tomorrow, and yet another's the next  day, with'or ~ without ~ political pro-  vocation-***-* state of affairg^no one  really cares to know exists in any  community.

In all the larger centres of population the bookstores made splendid displays of the recent works of  Canadian authors, while many of the more prominent clubs and organizations arranged for addresses by well known Canadian writers,  and the columns of the daily papers were devoted to reviews of Can?-  adian books of verse and prose.  In recent years the output of books from the pens of Canada's  writers has enormously increased.

A study of the books offered for  sale in one big store during this Canadian Authors' Week proved a"  veritible revelation of the wealth of high-class reading produced by  Canadians during the past two or three years. Last year far surpassed any previous year both in quantity and quality of production,  but even that record was broken this year.  Unquestionably the institution of Canadian Authors' Week had  the effect of directing the attention of thousands of Canadians to the  work of their fellow citizens, and it undoubtedly has resulted in  largely i- creased sales of Canadian written and made books, and a  deeper interest in Canadian literature.  To all lovers of Canada this cannot be otherwise than most  gratifying because it is a well recognized fact that the literature of  a country plays a profound and lasting part in influencing the  thought and national life of a people. All students fully recognize  and appreciate the influence which the literature of England has. had  on the national Life; not oniy of Englandi itself, but of the: whole Eng^*  iishing-speaking world;, and of all nations into whose languageY^he  works of the great Englisli poets, dramatists, essayists and authors  have been translated.  The development of a high standard in literature is an indication of the development of a high standard in national life. A nation's aspirations and its spirit finds expression through its poets and  writers. All history reveals this truth. Equally so, the rising of a  strong arid true national spirit finds its reflection in the works of its  writers.  The steady improvement in Canadian literature is, therefore, a  matter for Canadian pride and a beacon of hope for the Canada of  the future.      Our Canadian writers should receive all possible encouragement, and there can be no finer or more practical encouragement than for Canadians to buy books written by Canadians and  made in Canada.     The number of Canadians who boast of a library,  of their own, even a very humble arid small one, is limited.      But  why should \iiot every Canadian family establish the nucleus of a  library by buying one or more books jby Canadian-authors before  this old year ends and adding to them month by month in the years  to come ?     And what better Christmas gift can a -Canadian make to  a fellow Canadian than to present him or her with a book .by a  Canadian author?  The "Made in Canada" slogan can be overdone, and its use  twisted to give seeming support to policies or articles of an inferior  and undeserving character. Merely because an article is made in  Canada is not a sufficient reason why Canadians should buy it in  preference to other articles. It must have merit and it must be as  reasonable in price as similar articles made elsewhere.! V But granted that it has equal merit-and is reasonable in price, the Canadian-  made article should command tlie support of Canadians.  Insofar as books by Canadian authors are concerned, they meet  both these requirements. Furthermore, it is only,Canadian writers  who can truly and most sympathetically interpret Canada to Canadians. The writers of other countries cannot be expected to do this  because they are lacking in that love for Canada which is essential to  a true interpretation of Canadian thought, ideals and national  aspirations.  Therefore, be 100 per cent. Canadian by buying and reading the  works of our own Canadian writers, and become the proud possessor  of a choice selection of books by Canadian poets and authors. The  number of volumes one can afford may not be large, but it can always bc added to, and in a comparatively short time a really creditable little library will result.  erties of young folks blood.

Must Deal With Railway Situation  In the view of Sir Vincent Meredith,  the way to sustained improvement in  tradet is not yet.clear, but that improvement win be hastened when labor realizes that war inflated wages  cannot continue, and that more efficiency and "greater production are absolutely necessary in order to bring  prices down to a level that will stimulate consumption and thus provide increased employment. His warning as  to the evil effects of heavy taxation in  stifling industry and enterprise is one  that will be cordially endorsed by all  thinking men, and one which those  who direct "our putsiic affairs surely  wiii not dare to ignore.
