Pee'
The largest and most representative
gathering of citizens that has been
-seen at a gathering of the sort in at
least four years was in evidence at the
Board of Trade banquet at the Creston Hotel, on Tuesday night, Januaiy
Dth, the dinner preceding tjti
annual meeting, and the aecomP"uy*"
ing speeches following at the conclusion of the regular business of the
board, which included the election of
officers.
Retiring president R. S.-Bevan'
made a competent toastmaster-*, -and at
the outset took occasion to present his
yaledictory addressL which in addition
to reviewing in soiud detail the.good
wark the board hadVc'eOmpKshed during I92i, he at the same tmiu^uuiuitt'-
-ed the export trade statement coyer*}-
ing the shipment of orchard, field and
forest products' from Creston Valley
points���included in which .is the area*
f rom Sir4ar to Kitfchener. *   ,'"
The shipping statement is quite the
most complete eyer prepared, and has
���been carefully revised by a close check
of the reports submitted'* by selling
agencies and firms with the shipping
statements. as supplied by C.P.R.
agents at the several points in�� the
Vallev. '
In the lines mentioned the presidential statement indicates that the export trade pf t^e--V^lleyiu" the lin'^ Jw^jfoion tj"i "freight rates^

the speaker looked for ' something th

old fcwv that has it that "a good dimmer, lubricates business,'' after th'e inner
man -had been amply satisfied, the
purely routine features of the "annual
eonclftve went,, through v with neatness _
and despatch,  with President Beyan
a million dollar gain on the best previous year, which was 19JL9, during the"
twelve months of which total ship*
ments accounted for an income of
some $400,000. The hlige amount
shown for tjhe.year just closed is^iyid*
ed into $242^700 as the. total s^ i>t

The statement shows that the^shipfjJ'
ing of apples has reached the respectable total of 142,800 boxes, and the estimate is that there is still possibly another 8000 boxes in the growers hands,
which would indicat-e a total yi-ildijir
the year of around 150,000 bo^es���al-'
most double the big crop of 1019 and,
according tp unofficial estimates, treble
the apple crop of 1920. ..' *
In strawberries, too, 1920 is shown
to be the biggest year eyer, the outgo
of this fruit being 16,800 crates, tp say
nothing of a quantity that went olit
" in pails to the jam faQfe^y.:^J^ crfttta^"
of raspberries,were shipped during the
season, and the export of tomatoes' account for just" a  few less ' than 6000
crates,    ^h^^^iof:!?
crop is computed at a totJtl of $238,458,
while the stiiawberry money runs into
$53,084, anfr raspberries almost $18,000.

has been common knowledge for sevc
et-al years that the assessment in this
district has b.een,.to saylt^e least, yery
erratic. '   Whether this*, has'been due
to carelessness, .incompetence and political favoritism or political jspite, it is
necessary to enquire.    iThe  fact  remains that while many-properties are
or   haVe.. been    greatlj^-undervalued
many    other ,'��� properties * have,    in
the .ojgjtiion   of   thei^ yiwners,': been-

they could be fairly placed. '

"YOUR TEETH  99  CLEFT PALATE  By  &EA  PROCTOR  McGBE.  D.D.S..     M.D.,     Editor       of   "Oral  Hygiene"  No. 2���������Agricultural" Prosperity  Concluding the first article in this series in which the greatest'  need of Canada," ia order that it may become the nation natufe intended it should be, was declared to be adequate population, the  view was expressed that, first and foremost, it should be definitely  ascertained why so many people left the country; it a word, why  Canada failed to hold the people who immigrated to the Dominion,  and even failed to hold its'own native born.  The fault should be clearly established, and, in the opinion of  the writer, it is not far to seek. It is, we believe, to be found in the  fact that, despite Canada's enormous area of fertile agricultural land,  the wonderful productivity of its soil; and the virility of its clirriate  and people, the business of farming is not a paying one, with the  inevitable consequence that agriculture languishes and thousands  of people who engage in it give, tip after years of struggle, while  other thousands go on froni }-ear to year without snaking any material advance and become wholly disheartened.  As long as such a condition continues, and millions-of acres of  arable land remain unsettled and unproductive, all industry in ^Canada will suffer, our railways will continue to be operated at a loss  cr be forced id impose such heavy rates upon the commerce of the  country as to constitute another and serious obstacle to settlement,  development and the business of the Dominion. -  All observant men must admit that there is something radically wrong when the second largest grain crop ever raised in the  Prairie Provinces, that is so far as quantity is concerned, proved to  be, not a debt-paying crop but "a debt-producing crop. ���������. The hundreds of millions of-bushels of grain grown and harvested in 1921  should have given a great impetus to business in Canada; should  have paid off millions of debt contracted in the preyious poorer  years, and should have started many people on the road to prosperity. But, alas, taken as a whole the crop of .1921 cost the  farmers more to produce it than they realized from its sale. And  this disheartening experience of the grain grower was duplicated  in the case of the livestock producers.  Under conditions such as these it is. quite futile, and a waste of  time,'energy and money to endeavor to secure thousands of new, settlers to come to Canada and engage in agricultural production.  Conditions confronting and governing agriculture in Canada must  first be righted.  There will always be years in which adverse weather conditions  occur, years when plagues of grasshoppers, or rust, or some other  pest-wifl prevail to a certain extent, but every farmer is prepared  for these. These things alone did not bring thousands of Western  farmers face to face with disaster and ruin this year. Despite such  drawbacks, and hotwithstandnig the high costs incurred in connection with the raising and harvesting and marketing of the 1921 crop,  there would have been a profit had anything like a price comparable  with the costs of production been obtainable. -But just as soon as  the xrop began to move the bottom fell out of the market and the  grain had to be sold, if sold at all, at a price less than the costs of  production and transportation.  That's the situation in a nutshell, and the result is that not only  the Western farmers, and the West generally where prosperity depends upon the success of the farmers, but the whole industrial  world in Canada is suffering. Business in the East as well as in the  West is in the doldrums, is vitally, seriously, affected.  Agriculturists, we repeat, expect to face the vagaries and cope  with the vicissitudes of nature, but as individuals they cannot combat such a combination of circumstances as confronted them during  1921 and will'confront them again unless Canada wakes up as a  nation and grapples with what is our outstanding national problem.  A solution must bc found, and found speedily, if Canada is to grow  and prosper.  Canada can only live and prosper by developing a large and profitable export trade. The chief exports of this Dominion are, and  for many years must continue to be, the natural products of its  farms, its mines, its forests, and its fisheries. World markets for  these products must be found and developed. The fiscal policy  of this Dominion should be so framed as to encourage such a development.  A home market for factory products is of no value if the home  people have not the money wherewith to purchase the manufactured  goods, and the great mass Qf Canadian consumers cannot havo  money if the products of Canada's farms do not command a price  in excess ot the cost of producing grain and livestock.  Thickly populated countries may be self-contained, with all industrial urban population sufficiently large to consume all that the  agricultural rural population can raise, and vice versa, but not so in  a country like Canada with an enormous undeveloped area of arable  land and other natural resources and a sparse population thinly  spread out in a line three or four thousand miles long. Canada  must produce more from its land than its own people cau������consum*i-;,  and a profitable market must be had for the surplus in order that  the whole country may prosper.  WHEN WOMEN SUFFER  Look for weakness or ill-health. See  if there is. not a side ache headache,  restlessness Yand-the "blues." The  symptoms indicate that you need the  gentle assistance of Dr. Hamilton's  Pills. This sqdthiiigfaedicine is a  great friend to womankind.- They are  a wonderful relief to constipation,  they clear up sick headache, remove  wastes and poisons from the.system.  Girls and women can use Dr. Hamilton's Pills with great success.

When the' blood becomes thin and  impure the fcatient becomes pale. She  not only tires out easily but often suffers from headaches, palpitation of  the heart, dizzy spells and a loss of  aooetite.  In this condition Dr. Williams' Pink  ���������Tills will be found to have a beneficial  action on the blood. Miss Delima  Lafreniere, St. Ambrose, Man., has  proved jfchis 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 wreclc of myfformer self., -My  blood was poor and thin. I suffered  from faint anel dir^zy spells, and had  backaches ahd ^headaches almost  every day.* I decided to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills & trial, and by the  time I had used three boxes I - felt  much better". and t_ continued taking  the pills until I felt as well as I ever  did. For what .they did in my case  I cannot recommend these pills too  highly."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can be obtained 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.  The roof of the mouth is called 1he  palate. There are two parts to lt,  the hard bony part surrounded by  teefch, which is naturally called the  hard palate, and the soft part that is  so sentitive, at the back of the mouth,  called the soft palate.  Some unfortunate children are >)orn  with a separation of "tlie" palate lengthwise. Iu these cases the nose and  mouth open into each other.  It is very difficult to feed cleft palate children and if they do grow upr  they have a lifetime of suffering and  embarrassment. They cannot speak  distinctly and have great difficulty  with the fluids of the mouth and nose.  Usually through the border of the upper lip.  Two methods'are used to give relief to these children.     One is to perform an operation, or rather a series  of operations, to close the roof of-the (  mouth and the opening in the lip.  The other way is to make a plate  that will mechanically cover the open-'  ing in the>palate. x  The nature of the deformity makes  the wearing of *: this plate very unpleasant for the patient.  When a child is born with a harelip and cleft palate, the first thing to  do is to get a cleft palate nursing  nipple, because these children are so  very bard to feed. Then have the  palate closed as early as possible. If  these: children are successfully operated on before they learn to talk, the  voice will be normal. If the cleft  is left until the child becomes accustomed to the faulty use of the tongue  that-is necessary, with the open palate, his speech will never be perfect,  MISS  FRANCES  NEWMAN,  Chicago, III.

(Continued}, *  The name at the end^ of the telegram was unknown to elth-i? Harris  or his 3on, but Gardiner assured* them  it was one to conjure with in the financial world. Riles' excitement was  scarcely less than Allan's. Gardiner  choked a Spod of questions, on his lips  with a quick imperative glance; Even  Riles did not know that the telegram  had been written a few doors down  the street by a stdatish man in a pepper-and-salt suit. - ;- ���������-.*.������������������  "I'll take a chance," said Harris, at  last.     "I'll take a chance."  YyY ������  "Chance nothing!" Interjected Gardiner, with momentary abruptness.  "It was a chahco a minute ago; it's a  certainty now. If a the cinch *gf a  lifetime."  * "Where some "paper?" asked Allan.  "Let's get a telegram away right/off."  Gardiner produced a notebook and,  at Harris's ^dictation, drafted a telegram to Bradshaw, directing him to  dispose of the farm at once along the  lines of the instructions already given  him. He was to cash the agreement  and wire the proceeds to Harris.-_  Then followed long anxious days.  Fortune seemed to hang on Brad-  ghaw's success in making an immediate sale of the farm. It was a large  order, and yet Harris felt confident a  buyer would be found. The price  asked was not unreasonable, especially when It was remembered that tho  crop would go to the purchaser, and  was now almost ready for the binder.  Bradshaw was in constant touch with  well-tb-dbrarm������rS'from the South who  were on the look-out for land, and his  own banking facilitates would enable  him to forward the cash as soon as a  sale was assured, without waiting for  actual payment by the purchaser.   So  ��������� ���������i-'iJf. :->   - .   ������������������- - J,      \  Harris was confident In the midst of  his anxiety. ft 5   A gentleman^ agreement had been  made with Gardiner and Riles that  not a word was to be said concerning their investment until It was a  completed, fact:. Gardiner, dropped In  occasional*? io learn if afiy word had  come from "Plainville, but it was not  until the afternoon of the,fourth day  that the fateful yellow envelope was  banded in at the hotel. As it happened, oairdingr and Riles lwere present at the "tnoment. .; They slipped,  into the back room and waited in a  fever of expectation fof Harris to announcethe ������on;t&nt3Y     Y Y*  Harris 'arid * Allan read the message  twice before speaking; then Allan repeated it aloud: *    -  "Twenty thousand dollars proceeds  sale goes forward by wire your bank.  Correspondence follows. Will explain failure to get price asked.  "Bradshaw."  Harris was torn between epiotions,  arid hiBrYfacSks.worked with unwonted  nervousness ;as   he   struggled    with  them.      That Bradshaw should  have,  sold the farm for half the price he  had stipulated seemed incredible.     It  was robbery; it was a, breach of trust'  of the most, despicable nature.      On  the other harid, if the amount avail-"  able" would enable them to buy the  mine,  the huge  profit Vassui-ed   from  that Investment would    much    more,  than offset ths' loss    on    the    faring  Gardiner and Riles, too, were visibly?  downcast -when     they,    heard     the}  amount, but Gardiner promptly grapf  pled with the'situation^  "It's less than we figured on," he  said, "but perhaps we can get through  still. "^he thing to do is to get out  to the mine at.once with this money;  It will be sufficient to prove the genuineness of. our intentions, and induce  him into town.- : Then Riles can put  up some arid I can put up some, and  thai, with the twenty thousand,  should hold-the deal until Riles can  realize on his farm. Within a very  short time we can turn the whole  thing ;oyer to the New Yorkers, arid  take In the profits." _  "Say, Gardiner,".,said YAJlari? speaking as one who ha,d been struck by a  new and important thought. "Where  do "you come in on'this- dear*? Is your  old gink up in the hills -ecoming  through for half?"  "Not accent," said Gardiner. "As  for whereYI'Ycome" In, well, dealing  with old friends like Riles and the  Harrises, I considered that a secondary matter. I fancy that when they  feel the profits in their pockets they  will "be disposed to be not only fair,  but generous, and. of course. If 1 put  up part of the' money I will expect my  share of profit. But I'm not asking  for any. assurance; I'm just going to  leave that to1 you." v .  "Well, that's decent', anyway," Harris agreed, -x. "I haven't as much  money as I expected, but if we can  pull'Jt'through**,It may'be all right yet.  Of course,^ you remember that I haven't promised to put up a dollar unless  I like the'ldoks of the mine when I  see it?" Harris still had qualms of  hesitation about entering *nto a.  transaction so much out of his beaten  path, and he took occasion from time  tq time to make sure that an avenuo  of retreat-was. still open.  That's the understanding, exactly/"  a value out of all proportion to the  price asked.  "I'll take it," he said, and paid down  the money. There was a momentary  darkening of Gardiner's face which  nobody noticed.  The little party then moved out.to  the street. (Jafdiner had regained  his .smooth fanner, and gave some  final.directions about the road.-*    . ���������..,  "Oh, we'll find it all right," >aid  Allan, in high spirits, "and we'll beat  you to the shanty unless you'vo some  faster nags at home than any I see  you driving.     So long."^     "    ' ' ������������������  "So long," called Gardiner. "So  long, arid good luck."  "So long, an',good luck," repeated  Riles., He was trying to play the  game, but, as Gardiner often- reminded him, he had no. imagination. '-���������.Y. It  would have been quite impossible for T  Riles, on his- "own initiative, to have  thought of wishing the Harrises "good  luck" ojVrth������ journey they were about  toi* commence . . . They were  Interesting "types ������f villains���������one,  gentlemanly, sua ve, deep and resourceful; the other, coarse, shallow,  slow-witted and brutal. The offence  of one against society was wholly intellectual; of the other, aimost wholly physical. Gardiner, fully . appreciated the. difference, and in his heart  he felt a contempt and loathing toward Riles which he concealed only  as a matter of policy. And he had  worked, out in his mind a little plan  by which Riles, when his usefulness  was ended, should be shuffled off without any share in the booty. At pres5  ent he tolerated him because of necessity. There was work beofre them  for which Riles was peculiarly qualified.  The Harrises went at once to a livery stable, where they arranged for  a team- and outfit. They then bought  some cartridges for the gun, and a  small handbag in which to carry the  money, "  son, and his eye fell on the gun which  the latter carried under his arm. "But,  I guess," he continued with a laugh,  "there isn't much danger on that  score."  "Nothin' V speak of," said Harris.  And while I don't want V break your  bank, E do want t' get that money, and  t' get it in bills, or part of it in gold  an' silver would do. The fact is, I  don't mind tellin' you I've a deal on,  an* I've undertakenN t' put up this  money In caBh���������to-night."  The banker ruminated for a ie'w  minutes. Experience had told blm  that., with a certain class of men  money in bills was more valuable  than money in a cheque or draft. The  impress them. He had seen an old  ������imer refuse a twelve-hundred-dollar  marked cheque for his property, and  ye������ surrender greedily at the>sight of  a thousand one-dollar bills piled on a  table before him.

"You're the powerful frame Of the farmer to the  man with tho money, and if you don't equally powerful frame of the farmer's  like it, don't pay." *._ .   : i  Harris at once visited the bank, and f  returned shortly with the information  that the amount, less a somewhat  startling -percentage for transmission  and exchange, was already deposited  to his credit.  "Then let us lose no more time,"  said Gardiner, with enthusiasm. "You  will need a team and rig, and vou  better pack a couple of blankets and  Borne grub. .
