The oost of organizing the proposed  municipality cannot be stated exactly,  but would probably be aboutf$2500.00.  The ordinary /running expenses,' in-  cludlng the cost of the council and  paid officials could probably be estimated at about $2000.00 yearly. The  uimount ofthe yearly revenue and the  annual cost of public works such as'  maintenance, Improvement nnd construction of roads.and bridges would  depend on the action of the council  from year to year.  A study of- the alM������ve data. Avould  lead to the conclusion that it iw quite  possible to lower the rate of taxation  within the proposed municipality |f it  were organised. On the other hand it  ia quite posoible that o rouncU taasay  spend uionoy so freely thrtt the coai of  tuxatiou would be raised aboye the  preBent|amoHnt.

".Mother," she said one day after an  unusually long silence, "why ���������ean't  Miss Eliot come home with us?"  "Miss Eliot would not care to go so  far away from her friends, " dear,"  Mrs. Bingham replied. "Perhaps she  and Mary can come out next summer,  and we'll have a house-party for them  aad give them a really good time.    It,  would be too quiet and lonely for her  at the ran.ch"now."  Then she turned to me. "I am  dreading the winter, myself," she said.  "My-husband and Sunny and I always  take a house in.

"I could wish for nothing better,"  said Mrs. Bhigliain; -"but hadn't you  other plans?"  ThenJC told ner what had been tlie  object of my visit to Canada, and how  that object had changed i~\ part, and  finally it was decided that I should  go home witb. her**���������to stay as long as  we were both satisfied. ��������� -  I went down to the Hudson's Bay  Stores early the next morning and  was measured for a riding-habit.

O. F.

Mrs. Manuel says that I was  not accurate in my statement concerning prices of food in Creston.  I sit corrected. I will amend my  statement and say that the prices  quoted by me were prices paid by  me to Greston storekeepers and  that they represent, I believe, the  prices charged at three out of the  foutr genei'zix stor-63 m tuG town, -*���������"-  psices is secondhand and valueless,  and that I put myself into a position that to snake comparisons I  should undertake journeys to Cran-  aU-~.-ri.--0-* r- w-3 "Vr^la-i *-*.������* ftrt.** -&���������*?��������� c~.wnrt wO-Q mnn  L/ivuik  cwaa<uL  iioiavn-]   tt\~rK ^/4%E&a*-������������*-*^   mm*mm-~~a  walk into the stores there. and  place my orders. . I thank him for  the hint.^ I believe - lZ couid on a  fair-sized order save my "fare and  freight. He then concludes with  promise that if such firsthand proof  is forthcoming he ;will use his in  Suenee to bring about an investi  gation.  Now, Mr. Editor, no formal investigation is heeded. The situation is simple:      either tiie  local  ing, collectively, may I assume, 90  per^cent, of the trade. The remainder of Mrs. Manuel's letter is  devoted to explaining why we  should buy locally���������at high prices,  and why local prices are higher���������  an attempt; in fact, at justification.  The letter of the president of the  board of trade is no more encouraging. It calls upon me for proof  that it is difficult for me to give,  i.e.", proof that the outside prices  quoted by me are everyday-in-the-  year prices and not catch penny  y, speciala ""  He infers that as^up to the pres-  _  ent I have done sny   buying locally  all information I have as to outside  storekeepers    are   making' bigger  profits than  they used to make, or  they are not;    and either they can  sell as cheaply as  the storekeepers  in   other   towns,   or they can not. i  These, are questions they  can answer immediately,  without investigation and without consideration of  evidence, either first or second hand  to be offered by me.      If they feel  they   can   do   better   hy   keeping  prices up and allowing   a good per  ceutage of orders''to   leave   town  well, I suppose,they; will do so..   If,.  on the other hand, _they   consider  that a  larger- turnover   at a lower  rate of profit will pay them better,  then they will act; accordingly.    It  is up to them-to decide, and toshow:  by their actions what   i������ their  decision.  I  enclose for your   inspection  a  four-page advertisement of a Van-,  couver house, showing  what I un  derstand    to   be    every day-in-the-"  year  prices, seeing that   there is a  special list of cut  lines at extra ^t*  tractive prices on tlie  front page.

All  right in theory, they are failures in practice. . * ~~  Since the war, and in the topsy-tarvy period which has been one of the  aftermaths of the great struggle, Quite a number of ideas over which people  theorised have been given a trial. Russia has gone the limit in socialistic  experiments, confiscating property, placing a ban on capital, and generally attempting to run the country on plans never before attempted, but which had  for years been lauded and advocated by certain theorists. The' world knows  the result���������Russia ruined, an outlaw among the nations, her people starving  by the hundreds of thousands, her lands unfilled to a great extent,- and her  great industries idle and useless.  In other countries, including Great Britain, United States, Canada and  Germany, the experiment of greatly, reducing the daily number of hours of  work is being tried out with, as yet, no-appreciable results ofj a beneficial  character resulting to the workers, while the effect on industry and commerce  generally, and on the living costs of all people has been disastrous.  Germany probably reveals the best example of the results of this experiment. Under the old autocratic form of monarchiarGoverhinent, the workers  of Germany had to work long hours. Following the revolution and the abdication of the Kaiser, a Workers' Government came into power. Hours of  labor were greatly reduced, the old nine and ten-hour days being replaced hy  an'enforced eight-hour day for all occupations, and to seven and six hours for*  certain arduous occupations. Tlie experiment has not been a*" success, and,  although Germanj- sti!! has a -Workers' Government, It is now proposed" to  add one or two limn-i -.n h>/������ t.r������������^.i*-^������^      -~n~.!~ -���������*.-      - -   -  ���������   Fire������cci Deserter Was Fe������lltar% j  Arrested    on    Swiss   .Frontier    After  i,'    -_   Defying J*������ls������e for Years  ,   A wealthy Frenchman, F.

This policy is not one being forced  on the workers; it is the labor leaders themselves won see the necessity for  the longer, workday.  The theory back of the much shortened workday is that ths free time  thus provided for tlie worker is to go into the family life, recreation, study���������  in short, to enable the workman and his family to cultivate qualities valuable  to the family, society and the coming generation, to improve health and generally enable-the worker to devote move attention to" his home and self-im:  provement.* .Germany, however, is learning by experience that shortening of  the workday below a certain figure develops into a problem of disposition of  lhe free time.  It is pointed out by a writer in.The Saturday Evening Post that when a  twelve-hour workday is shortened to ten hours the disposition of the two  hours does not���������constitute a problem, but when this free time is extended  from two hours to four or even six'Kours a day a civic and economic jproblem  arises.      It has been found that this free time is devoted to a marked extent        Figures on the bicth-rate in sixteen  to one  form or another of waste.
