To be., a good, farmer, one'must like  farming.?' He must he interested in  the things-he works with, and in the  problems he meets. He works with"  soil, with machinery, with seed, with  growing crops and with animals. He  works also with markets. The problems h$ meets arise from the weather  and its effects on soil, seed and crops;  from weeds and plants and animal diseases; from the wearing of machinery; from fluctuating prices and from  men who, not willing to work themselves, spend their time in working  others, and ih trying to reap tho rewards-of other men's labor., 'All  these interests-and problems may be  merely perplexing and baffling and defeating, but many farmers are winning  financial 1 success out of these conditions and are finding them anything  hut dull.  Canada s Needs  UNIQJST BANK OF CANADA  HAS AN-EXCEPTIONALLY.STRONG STATEMENT  Bank's Position is Well Maintained, the Liquid Assets being  53.70 per cent, of Total Liabilities to the Public ��������� Resources  Aggregate $152,625,386  T  No. 4���������A Greater Use of Canadian Raw-Materials  Men of all shades of political thought, and all students of economics, are  agreed that the interests of Canada call for a reduction in imports of articles  which the Canadian people can produce for themselves, and an increase-in.  the export of those products and articles of which this Dominion can. easily  and profitably produce a surplus, in. order that, through a combination of  these two developments, a pronounced improvement may be brought about in  the balance of trade in favor of the Dominion. ~ It is when we*come to consideration of ways and means whereby euch a desirable and necessary change  is to be effected that opinions sharply differ.     -*  One school of political thought declares that the only effective means to  lessen imports and increase home production is through a protective tariff���������  that is, a tariff sufficiently high to either shut out foreign competition or at  least to enable. the Canadian grown or manufactured article to undersell  foreign goods of a like Kind, .'-...-  The opposing school of thought contends that the inevitable^result of  such a tariff is to so enhance prices as to "place a handicap on articles needed  in the development of lhe country, and that thereby production at home is  lessened, and,.while import trade may be curtailed, production for export is  likewise lowered and the buying power of the whole country reduced, and  prices so enhanced that people are forced to go without many things which  otherwise they would be able to purchase, and that this decreased buying  power results in depression of trade and consequent unemployment.  The writer has no intention of taking any part in. this-political controversy. Whatever the effect of the tariff may be one way or the other, the  writer inclines to the view that the real difficulty and economic weakness of  the Canadian position*at present is to be found in another direction.  The commercial strength of Germany before the war was found in the  energy displayed by Government and people in developing the natural resources of the country for use at home and abroad. , The same thing is true  of the United States. Neither of these countries imported to any extent  anything they .-could produce at home. It will be said that both these countries had protective tariffs and it may be* argued that such tariffs were responsible for bringing about the result noted. But were they so responsible ?  Canada has had a protective tariff for many years, yet this country haw  failed to develop many of" its natural resources of raw material "to anything  like their full extent, and has gone on importing supplies which could have  been secured at home. For example, Western Canada has some of the largest coa! deposits in the world, yet for years millions of dollars worth of coal  have been hauled by rail and water from Pennsylvania for use in this country. While Western Canada .was doing this', Germany, as a result of scientific research work, was using greatly inferior coal to the Western Canada  article in the great German factories and as fuel for its people. Ontario  lacks coal and has for decades'followed the line" ol least resistance and imported millions of tons annually from Pennsylvania whereas much., of Ontario's and Quebec's industrial fuel requirements might have .been obtained in  Nova Scotia brought by water transportation up the St. Lawrence. But  It was easier to continue to get supplies from Pennsylvania than to'engage in  the national work of developing an inter-Provincial trade in coal from the  Maritime Provinces via the St. Lawrence route.*  Canada  possesses  enormously  rich  deposits  in  iron,  copper and  other  minerals, but thcy lack development, and we continue, to import huge quantities of iron ore from the United States.     Why?     It is stated that one reason is that  United States capitalists have secured control of the "Canadian  deposits and refuse io develop them so long as they    can    obtain    sufficient  qu������irni;ies  from their own mines;   that, in a word,  they Itre holding their  Canadian  properties  in  reserve against the  day  when  their UnIted_J3tates  mine* become exhausted .--.nd that then, and not until then, will tbey .develop  their Canadian held properties.      11! this is so, and there appears to be evidence to .support this charge, then ir is high time the Canadian Government,  took .-.reps to put an end to such an outrage by compelling the development  and  op'*)*:.".i*'ii  of rhese*- Canadian mineral proper-ties wil It  a penalty of forfeiture* if such develojunenr in not. proceeded with within a reasonable time.  Many Canadian rnanui'ruaurer.s continue to import raw, or semi-manufactured, supplies to be worked up into a more finished product, when, by the  expenditure of r-oiuf* mone,\ and the-display of a little more initiative and  enterprise such .supi-We;-* could be. obtained within Canada, thereby lessening  our Yi.-ioH trade and provjeiing a \(r\'y considerable volume of employment  wit liir* C.-mada, rind mahir.g possible "a large increase In the valuo of Canada's export trade*-.  Trier*' are many thing.*- Canada, eannoi produce and must,'"therefore,  Import, but there are many supplies now imported which could-just as well  b-*-* obtained at hoipj, and it is the duiy of the Government to direct Its energies and frame its fiscal policy along lines whieh will promote ttuc'l) ..development within Canada,  IN POOR HEALTH  -������m a    d������  Has ah awful struggle.

Assuming these figures fairly  represent the work Mr. Ferguson  has done ail over the Valley even  Mr. Ebbutt can hardly complain  about his favorite cash value theory  being disregarded, while those who  hold to it that a cash value is something in the neighborhood of the  XMsh price the seller asks, surely  cannot complain about Mr. Ferguson being unjust to them.  And assuming, further, that most  of the other valuations ^are some  what on a par with the one we have  ���������   '   ���������        " ��������� rr"  cited (aud on the selling price of  which Mr. Ferguson must have had  full information) it must be at once  apparent that any effort to rai&e  assessments would disari vaiiiageous-  ly affect the great raafority of owners in the Valley.  As to what constitutes a fair  price for an aged apple tree it may  be illuminating to some to know  that when the Sirdar-Kuskancok  road was built and some orchard  land had to he expropriated on the  Pascuzzo ranch to provide, the right  of way at that particular point, in  addition to paying roundly for the  land taken, horticultural experts  held that $17 per tree was a reasonable charge for the trees that Mr.  Pascuzzo was forced to lose���������and  which price the government  paid. Were the assessor to levy on  the 100,000 apple trees in the Valley at even half the price paid Mr.  Pascuzzo local ranohers would certainly have good reason to complain of the new tax buaden.  resent the city  of Victoria in the  legislature,  and, their constituents  are immune from  provincial tax  atioiK hence "Fair Play" cannot see  the justice of lambasting Mr. Oliver while the local member, half of  whose constitueney is liable for the  higher taxation,   goes   unscathed.  In Edition to this "Fair Playn  is quite curious to   know   how   it  comes about that in the selection of  officers and executive not a Liberal  is chosen to serve in  any capacity  on  the ^Ratepayers'   Association���������  and this  despite the fact  that the  chairman pro tem stressed the point  that the association should be non  political as well as non sectarian."  ' Whether,    in   the   selection   of  officers*there was any organized effort to  sidetrack Liberals Js quite  immaterial, but there is much point  to "FairYPIoyV demand that  the  Kaslo member should take his full  share of blame for the seemingly  unsatisfactory assessment law tha������  has been enacted,   unless   he   can  demonstrate that when the legislation was before the house .that he  Z.-L  revenue.. And talking about enlarging the provincial incomes how*,  wquld it be for those who so readily  talk about the prevalence cf bootlegging providing the assessor with,  the names of the illegal booze vendors so that they can be levied upon  for income tax by both the B.C. and  Dominion authorities..'

Opposition members' may in ajl  fairness gain all the votes possible  on the strength of the government's  riactmenfc of unpopular legislation  if merely passive resistance were  offered when such legislation -was  before the house, but u nless the local representative can show that he  Seriously objected to the putting on  the statute book of these afmend-  inents to the taxation act then he  ������������������-at least in, equal measure with  the party in power���������must take his  share of the blame for bringing  about the present unsatisfactory  state of affairs.

Placing Some of the Blame  MOUNTAIN VIEW RANCH  WALTER V. JACKSON ,  While the "Taxpayer" letter in  our last isi-me may fairly be said to  have gained the major share of the  attention paid the assessment question, the author of "The Plightof  the Creston Taxpayer" artiole'  whioh appeared in the Review of  January 18th, has also beenacoord  ed quite a full measure of cr it ioi em  ���������favorable and otherwise accord  ing, possibly, to the political leanings of his critics.  One correspondent, signing himself "Fair Play," is ourioun to knuw  why all the blame for the new situation is laid at the door of the  Oliver administration, and no questions asked as to what Col. Fred  LiHter, M.P.P. for this riding, was  doing when the so-oalled iniquitous  legislation was being put through.  Both Premier Oliver   and Hon.  John Hart, minister of finance, rep-  -t, ai  $150,  Four Years  -1������F  From, one intimately acquainted  with the matter the Be view is in  formed that*-; toot*? only for the past  two years; fc-U'tJ;f6|j at least four  years past, the-Creston Valley area  has*been reoeifing in the way of  public works an average expenditure of almost .$140,000 per year.  Over this period there has been expended a grand total of 6ver $150,-  000, and of this approximately  $107,000 has , gone . into roads,  $34,000 into bridges, and almost  $9,000 into ferries. *  As indicating the value the district has gqtten for the rates it has  paid it will be enlightening to know  that up till this year the assessment of the district has been little  more than $1,000,000, whioh at 1  per cent, would give oidy a tota  tax payment of $10,000 per annum  ���������just about one fourth of what has  been expended on much appreciated publio works, generally speaking  Aside altogether from the present assessment controversy that is  raging these fipjurea are worthy of  the consideration c f those in these  parts who are clamoring for the  striotest economy. So long as  Creston Valley ib willing to participate in public expenditures in  the advantageous ratio of four to  one as a community, we can not  consistently clamor for less generous treatment to, other seotions of  the province.       v  Domestic Pack  i*.

Gardiner enjoyed the note.of admiration in his companion's voice. He  enjoyed also that knowledge that  Riles was utterly at sea; that he had  np more idea* than the horse he rode  what lay before them that night.  "It's all quite simple," said Gardiner, after a pause. "Jim will hurry  back to the ranch, saddle his horse,  and follow us. By the way, I didn't  tell him I borrowed his revolver.

The    two    men   rode  through-the river, and    their    words  were drowned in the lisp of the water.  The  smile  did  not  leave  Travers'  lips as he wound up his reel and stole  swiftly along a  cattle-track up from  the river, but a sudden light gleamed  in his eyes and his muscles hardened  with excited tension.      He knew the  shanty to which Gardiner referred, as  they  had  once  been  there  together,  and he resolved that if there were go^  Ing to be any "doings" in that locality  to-night he would furnish a share of  the   excitement.     Unfortunately,   the  "ford was on a cross-road little used,  and it was two miles back    to    the  ranch.

By  the time Travers reached the ranch  buildings,  caught  and    saddled    his  horse, made a fruitless search for his  revolver, substituted a rifle which lay  at hand, and at length. found himself  upon the.-trail, darkness was,: setting  in, and Gardiner and Riles had many  miles' start of him.        _ *"    *,  .*������������������  When the two; plotters stopped;to  let their horses drink at the ford Gardiner suddenly broke off from their  conversation to make a few remarks  about Travers and Harris.

Winter is  a dangerous season for  the little ones.      The   days    are    so  changeable���������one.day bright, the next  cold and stormy/ that the mother is  afraid to take the children out for the  fresh air and exercise they   need   so  much.

Many people feel that they  have to be agitated into wake-  ". - fullness in the morning. They  think that without the tea or  coffee they take in the morning  that they will' not be able to  v meet theifcasks and duties of the  day.     *' ' *  Nothing could be more false  than this reasoning. Any doctor  can tell you this. For a healthy  ...   body does not need or require  a stimulant. It gets all the stimulant it needs from food.  Tfie thein and caffeine found  in tea and coffee are irritating to  !    ihe heart and nervous system.  \?Z,Y'tThey jolt the nerves into undue  activity.   The result is, a reaction. This is why regular tea  and coffee drinkers think they  ��������� .must have their atiiqulant the  'first thing in the morning to  wind them up for the day.  If you will stop using tea and  coffee for a week, and drink  Postum, the - pure cereal beverage instead, it will give Nature  anoppiartunity to rid the system  of the irritating substances that  harass your nerves, upset,digestion, increase your heart  actioni'and make you nervous,  and irritable.  Many people who have tried  Postum say that inside of a  week they wake in the morning without that "all gone" feeling that they used to have, and  are fujl of energy, strength and  endurance.
