There -mil be a  short sausical programme smd sale of  ice cream and candy. The admission  is 25rcents," and" with" the   travelling  -good many visitors are looked for.  Canyon City had a. very pleasant  call on .Tuesday from. Lieut. (Rev.)  Calvert of Kaslo and four of the members of the Naval Brigade of that  town of whieh he is a leader. They  were guests at the^iEwnoii home ahd  during the,afternoon were put thiough  some features of their drill, including  a very practical demonstration of  signalling.  Mr/and* Mrs. Floyd Rodgers (nee#  Heath] returned on Saturday from  their honeymoon trip to Banff and  Ijake Louise, motoring hQre from Calgary, and are now getting settled  down to housekeeping at- their .home  " at Canyon City, where Floyd is In  charge off the ''"Company; sfcore*. They  were very agreeably surprised on  opennng-their home to find it generously filled with*UBeful and valuable wedding presents from numerous Valley  friends who could not let the oppor  tunity pass-uf showing their good will  toward both bride and groom.  delegated to represent Ei'ickson at the  Women's Institute conference at Nel-  sop this Week, was unable to make the  trip. Monday morning she had ..the  bad luck to sprain her ankle, and  -while the mishap is not serious as it  might h-aye been it will be some days  ^before she will be able to get around  as usual.        ..  Hard surface roadmaking operations-  are now being rushed full steam ahead  in all departments. The lon^ expected steam roller came,in on Sunday and  Fort-man Dayies had it fitted up an dp  on the job by,Tuesday. "With the contractors going it seven days a week  getting out rock there .should be a  steady supply- of raw material and  there need be no occasion to worry  about the completion of the road- to  the station in good time this season  al  13 YEABS' RAINFALL  \5-  By WAt������~.~hoU, Jr.  Lister  Mr. and Mrs. R." Helme of Vancouver were week-end visitors with Col,  and Mrs. Lister. ���������"  , John Davis, who has-been working  at the   Continental   mine -at" Klock-  t- ���������  maun, is here for-a few'days -before  going on to' Crows Nest Fass points,  where'he will work in future.  H. Liangs-ton, also of the Continental mine crew, was home for the weekend, along with J. McGee. The latter.  ho we very-will not be returning, as he  found" cordwood cutting by contract  somewhat unremunerative.  Messrs. Eysms, Webb and J. Burgess were commandeered nut about 5  a.m. Tuesday by Fire patrol Jory, and  are now forest fire fighting in the  action.   "���������r^rr "���������  The one thing uppermost m the  minds of the peopled? *he Greston  district is rain; will it rain? Do  you think we willVget any raiu this  time? These are^be questions we  have been asking ������aeh other fur the  past eight - weeks^'ujn.tit the question  itself has beeovns iv negative one.  The extreme.. drj^ spell we are  passing through ^as/made us think  of the dry summers that are past;  and-to compare, itirour- minds, 'this  summer with-them.; It is interesting in this, connection to read and  st>udy the rainfalls-tor this district  for the past ten years.  The most vital months are May  to August inclusive, and those  months together   Mth   tlie   year's  total is given heret  -* r "��������� ri  Year.". Tot. in. May. June. July. Aug.  carried,' with one dissenting, that parents be asked to pay $50 per child.  My object in writing is just to say  that .this can hardly be called the  voice of the ratepayers. Owing to one  cause and*'another many were unable  to be present, and I thought it a pity  that this should go - forth as being  Creston's decision. What I would"  like is. if some way could be found of  really knowing the people of Creston's  mind on this martyr. I think no better way would be, found than through  our newspaper. Your giving this  publicity might .create an interest in  the matter, and another meeting,  might-be called which would be repre- j  sentative of the ratepayers. This-$50  payment may hinder somei.^ehildren  from getting a start in life.

Again, we will cbote that July is  ^xc'hth^lAfe'seaspii. Only  in tndse years when July lias chacf a  good rainfall has there been a -good  growing season, and .only in three  years out of ten has July had more  than one arid   three-quarter inches.  We iia.tnra]Iy think of 1919as an  exceedidg dry season, and use it as]  a comparison^ . In May, June and  July of that year"we had 1.74 inches of raiu. This year, 1922,- in  those months we have .1.73 inches.'  In August of 1919 there was 1.35  inches; Up to the 30tl i we h ave  had-.40 inches this year. Is 1922  going to repeat 1919?

I put m>selt* to bed at eight o'clock  to-night on purpose to see-it I could  catch up the sleep I lost between here  and Winnipeg, and now, at a quarter-  past nine, I am still wj-jie awake. As  usual, 3 sleep badly my first night on"  the train, and last night was even  worse, for we had* to change cars at  midnight and we leached Carbon City  at three o'clock in the morning So  with iwo broken nights behind me 1  am not sure whether it is to-day or tomorrow.  As to why I cannot go to sleep  when I wish to do so���������well, who could  go to sleep when just across the hall  a number ot -coWboys' are singing at  the tops ol voices trained in the great  out-ot-doors ?  The chorus, of one song, oft repeated, is -quite audible:  "Farewell,    my    Bloo-bell, farewell to  . you,  Just one fond glance into your eyes  of blue.  Mid camp-fires glea-ming, midst sl^ot  -��������� and shell/ '^ "PZ'Z  -I-will be drea-ming of my own" Bloo-  bell."  Whoever is playing the accompaniment has played more difficult music  than "Bloo-bell.-"' Who is he, I wonder���������or is it she? Hardly the latter,  I think, for I cannot hear a woman's  voice.  A notice over the piano is to the effect that all music must cease at half-  past ten. . Until that time- I shall  have to submit to the serenade, I presume.

This Is a  private   compartment   at  one-_ end ^of  the Pullman, and contains two berths  and a .couch. In view of the tact that  I like to watch my fellow-travellers, I  considered the state-room an Tinn-3ces--  sary luxury���������ten marks o* for pleonasm. But I must admit that at night  it was pleasant to know that the berth  above or below one was not occupied  by a stranger. And It seems, although I do not know that my supposition can. fie confirmed by statistics, that the said stranger is always  a fat man who snores excruciatingly.  ~ I can truthfully say that the lack or  picturesque scenery between Winnipeg and Carbon City was a disappointment. Mile after mile we rattled  over level praiiie, nothing ahead" of  us and nothing behind us hut two  steel rails. All the litt-le towns looked alike, and after^we had passed a  dozen of them I concluded that the  name was placed so prominently on.  the station in order that passengers  might know when they had reached  their own town, otherwise t cannot  see how they would ever feel sure.  The bigger towns, Brandon, Regina,  Moose Jaw and Medicine Hat, however, give evidence of life and~origin-.  ality, even._io one who only sees them  from the coach window.  At Regina"I saw my first Mounted  Policeman. ^ He was altogether beautiful, and I only hope that his nice  shiny boots did not pinch him, and  that he was not laced too tightly.  "The red coats- ot the North-West  Mounted Police"���������what a Ralph Con-  norish thrill it gives" one, approaching  in degree if not in kind that attendant  upon a dose ol quinine.  As I said before, we reached Carbon  City at three o'clock in the morning.  We came directly to the hotel, whe*e  Mr. Bingham had rooms reserved for  us, so it was not until after my twelve  o'clock breakfast that I saw anything  of the town. This hotel is palatial  compared with the Palace Boarding  House. But hot and cold water, electric light, and a regulation dining-  room presided over by trim "waitresses  can never take the place ot Mrs. Mills.  When . we had finished our breakfast, Mrs. Bingham and Sunny took  me around Carbon City and showed  me all the places of which they, as  citizens, have reason to be proud.    ���������  Carbon City, as it appeared to me,  is about midway between Winnipeg  and .Elba���������I hope no one thinks that  I mean this geographically���������with a  slight leaning towards *. the latter  place. If one could take'alternate  buildings from Main Street, Winnipeg, and from, Main Street, Elba, one  would have a fair imitation Scjt" Main  Street, Carbon City. Sid������ by side  withsa low frame shack, none too substantial and sadly lacking in paint,  one sees a four-storey brick office  building with stone trimmings and a  goodly assortment of plate-glass windows. In the residence district the  contrasts are not so great*, plain and  unassuming hojues^are the rule. And  there are no trees or gardens���������a -dry  climate, and' an incessant wind discourages the most enthusiastic of gardeners.-  After dinner we went for another  waflt, but this time we took a new  direction, away from the town and towards the river. At this season the  riyer is very narrow and very shallow, but they tell me that at times  the whole valley has been flooded.  Properly speaking, the river has no  hanks, but" runs through a level plain  perhaps a Quarter of a mile wide at  this point. Then come the hills  again, bare and brown and uncanny-  lpoking to one used to the wooded  hills of England.  "The foothills oX-the Rockies" Is a  phrase that gives a wrong impression.  I expected to see a succession of hills  gradually becoming higher until they  were mountains, but the appearance  is rather that of .wide plains cut by  deep valleys, technically known as  canyons. As the mountains are not  visible irom Carbon City there is nothing to give me the feeling that I sun  In a hign altitude.

But there are a couple of details in  which some   vitally interested can  and should do   something   toward  assuring that at the time of unveiling the   memorial shall  be clear of  debt, and that in at least financial  .   matters those who   will be entrusted with the looking, after the monument   will   not   have   cause   for  worry in that regard.  First of all the attention of those  who have  guaranteed sums,   large  or small, toward the cost  of erecting  the memorial,   and who  have  not. at* yet,   paid in   their pomi^ed  contributions, is called to the necessity of at once sending  along their  promised donations.

A  year ago they    proposed    a   more  pretentious-effort   and were defeated by the   adverse  expressed opinion of the itisjority   in assessed value in   the suggested 1921   scheme.  That they are now back.on the job  for a more limited (and   snore easily  handled  district   is not their fault,  and itL-view of   the urgency  of the  situation    no   one   can    rightfully  blame   them   for   renewing    their  effort so promptly.

Those nations  which .'Started and lost the* war are prostrate, while those which in honor were  forced to engage in the struggle aad who won the war are doomed to struggle  along under burdens of debt and obligations which .|t will require several  "generations*.to* pay.' And, after all; what did the Great War really achieve  for the benefit or mankind? Nothing, unless .it be that at long last th������  human family has learned the Tutlity of war, --and the absurdity of trying to  .maintain peace.by. thi making of.feverish and gigantic preparations for war.  The creation orthe League of Nations, tne establishment of an International  Court _6f Justice, and the signing of disarmament trea-ties, "all" seem -to indicate that the lesson hns been learned.  But while statesmen, capitalists, and labor are all agreed that war Is a  .curse and that no effort must be left untried which'will prevent a recurrence  of the catas-trophe which ovcrrtook the world in 1914. each and all cf these  ihree main groups in the. industrial .world seem content that the age-long,  struggle between capital and labor, employer and employee, shall continue  to be* waged with the crude and obsolete "strike" as the chief weapon. ^ Yet,  surely in this presumably enlightened -century, and with all the.experiences  of the past as a guide, the able leaders in the political and. industrial life of  the world must realize, and do realize, the utter, futility of "strikes", as ~s~.  means of obtaining redress of grievances and the "accomplishment-of permanent reforms. : '-���������-.���������..- . --?i-- ..;���������-. ,.*���������*-...'-:'.**...   ' -    ...  Take ther present outstanding example qt the use of.the "strike" weapon.  Last Spring hundreds of thousands of coal miners in.the United States went  on strike in" order to enforce their demands in a controversy with the mine  - owners and operators. -As.to the rights and wrongs of the dispute we are  ���������not, so far as this article is concerned. In any way interested. Needless io  say the .right is not all on one side and the wrong on the other.      But'for  ~ fiv months now betwene half and three-quarters of a million men have been  Jiving in idleness���������in itself, a national calamity because of the injurious effects on character and the inevitable development of shiftlessness and other  bad habits. - ���������  *      -  .  For five months no wage cheques have been coming in to support these  men and their families probably a total of more than two million souls, and  ���������' provide them with the comforts and decencies of life. They have had to  depend on the meagre doles of "strike" pay out of Union' funds and-which had  been deducted from their income in .previous years. In the final analysis,  therefore, these five months have been worse than absolutely.lost to these  hundreds of thousands of people. .*-.-''  The mine owners have suffered through deterioration of their properties  and machinery, and through loss pi' profits'on'operation, **but-their loss has  been -smas? compared with that of their striking employees because the coal  still remains in the ground to be mined at some future date and sold, in. all  probability, at a higher price because of the shortage created by nearly half a  year of non-production.  Countless thousands of -other workers have been forced to work on short  time because of lack of sufficient, fuel to keep the industries and factories in  which they were employed opera (ing full time. Railways have been forced to  reduce the cumber of trains in operation and schedules*-have been, lowered.  Ocean froing vessels have been com pelted to carry sufficient, coal from foreign  ports to enable them to make the return voyage because they could not get  coal at American ports. And now. with winter approaching and surplus  stocks of coal rapidly disappearing, the people of the North American continent are fact to face with the problem, riot, merely of keeping the wheels of  ^industry revolving, but of actually keeping themselves Irom freezing'to death  in the months to come. $.\ich coal as may be available, will sell, it is feared,.  at an almost prohibitive price.  There are many other losses to be charged up against this "strike," as,  for example, the loss of business to merchants everywhere iti the mining  region.**; because of the loss to the State resulting from the necessity of maintaining increased forces of police and military to maintain order when tens of  thousands of people are living in idleness and suffering from a sense of  wrong and injustice.  And what can possibly be written eventually on the other side oi' the  ledger to ofLset these enormous losses? The strike will be settled sooner or  later, ami almost certainly in a compromise ol' some kind. That compromise  could just as well have been rent:bed in a conference by arbitration before  tiie strike a.> now after months oi' suffering and loss. Even should one side.  g-.iin everything  i'or  which they  are holding out, that gaiu  will not begin to  coinp������?:isa������t������  for.  'he  toss.  ���������  Industrial war waged ihrough "strikes" is just as senseless, just as I'utiie,  as war waged belween nations. Both bring suffering, sorrow and loss in  rheir train, and practically no gain. But capital and labor both remain blind  to This .-acm each refuses to see any side but their own. And statesmen  renin In timid and fearful ana apparently have not the courage to grapple with  the thorny problem and provide-by law some method which will prevent further repetitions of this same folly. lt. must, be ended eventually, but apparently I? i* Koing 10 take some industrial upheavel comparable only to the  Greai War to bring the peoples -of the world to their senses, and cause "Lhe  pubUr" th ri.*-.-* in their might and s?i>   "this thing has got to atop."  a Field of Usefulness Peculiarly-  Its Own  The   'important     pervice which the  counts-y weekly renders its community  by     publishing     tinsely"  agricultural  news, was emphasized by W. A   MacLeod,*' Commissioner   of  Publications"  for the Saskatchewan Government, in  an  address   delivered  by him  at the  Western Publishers' Short "Course and"  Conference held recently at 4he Manitoba Agricultural College.   -  -  There Is a vvital distinction between  the news Afield of the weekly- paper and  the city dally, the speaker stated, as  the dally newspaper deals very largely with  what  might  be  described  as  "bad   news,"   wars,   revolutions,   murders, accidents, calamities of one kind  or .another, and the weekly newspaper,1  dealing largely in local activities, appeals most' to its readers when it devotes    most"   of    Its space  to  "good  news,".information about -the    social  life and the progress and development  of the district, and community, ^and in  an  agricultural   community -the   agricultural news sent out by the Federal  and Provincial Governments provides  an important source of information.  .Illustrations were given of how the  value of agricultural news sent out in  the form- of bulletins or news-articles  was very greatly Increased when "the  editor gave the article a local color  by adding to the article some news ol  local conditions concerning the same  subject. ...Information about the best  varieties :;of ^cereals or lorage plants  is. of far;great-er interest to readers  if the editor* can tell of some local  farmer who is experimenting with  these varieties, and news of an out-,  break of insect pests> gains much in  value if the editor can give accurate  information- as-Jo local conditions in  connection with such an outbreak.  Governments, both Federal and Provincial, have invested very large sums  in experimental farms.and agricultural colleges where experiments are carried out of the highest importance to;  agriculture, arid the weekly press renders a great service, not only to its  readers but to; the country' general 1 y  when the rekuTts obtained is published even If the paper cannot afford  more space than merely to quote the  general results and direct the reader  to bulletins or reports giving more  detaited and .complete information cart  be secured.

In closing, a reference was made to  the very great demand made upon the  small space available In the average  country paper, and to the importance  of condensing the news������articles as  much as possible I.o make them available for weekly papers as the editor  should not be expected to furnish the  space and prepare ihe articles as,weU.
