Then, he  piled ui> his own plate and started in  ter eat.

Flour Sack  never bats> an. eye, but says, with his*  mouth full 'Take a cheer,' he says, an" ?  wait until I git through.' " j  Although Wade had heard the story}  before, he laughed pleasantly as San-{  try began to dish up the food; then '  the latter summoned the hired man.  "Mind, now, Bill." Wade admonished.      "Not a. word about the s-.heep."  'Tlie  next  morning:,- after a restless  night, the young rancher set out alone  tor the sheep camp.      He was more  than ever concerned over the outlook.  because sleep had brought to his pillow visions of cattle starving on a denuded range, and of Sa*atry suad "Race t  Moran  engaged   in  a  death   struggle.  Particularly because of tiie danger of  this, he had insisted upon Santry staying at home.      The    old    plainsman,  scarred    veteran    of many a frontier  brawl, was too quick tempered and too  proficient with his six-shooter to take  back-talk    from    the    despised    sheep  herders or to bandy words with a man  he feared and hated.      Wade was becoming convinced that Moran was re'  sponsible   'for "the    invasion    of    tfhe  range, although still at a. loss for*jhls  reasons.      The whole affair was mark-  ed   with  Moran's   handiwork   and   the  silent swiftness of liis methods.  This    Race    Moran was a stranger  who    had    come    to Crawling. Water  some^jnonths before, and  for reasons  best known to himself, had been trying to ingratiate himself in the neighborhood,  but, although he  seemed  to  have  plenty of  funds,  the  ranch and  stock men did not take kindly to his  advances.      He posed as the agent of  some  Eastern capitalists, and he had  opened an office which for sumptuous  appointments had never been equaled  in that part of the country; but he bad  not been able to buy or lease land at  lhe prices he offered and his business  apparently had not prospered.      Then  sheep had begun to appear    in    great  flock? in various parts of the surrounding country and some or* these Hocks  to overflow into Crawling Water' Valley.      Moran denied, at first, that they  had come ai his Instance, but. later on.  he tactily   admitted  to  the  protesting  cattle     men     that    he   had  a.  certain  a.nioijnf. of ih teres t in sheep raiding.  More   liir-siashted   ihan   some   of   his  neighbor?;,   Wade   had   leased   a.  large  ���������strip "i  \i*.rnl  in  ihe valley  for use as  winter range.       Moran had seemed to j  want thi.-, land badly, and had offered ������  a really fair price for it, but Wade had  not cared to seLl. Relying upon his  privilege as lessee, Wade had not feared the approach of the sheep, and he  had no -reason to wish to dispose of his  holdings. Now, it began to look as  if Lhe purpose was to "sheep" him < ut  of bis own territory, so that the agent  might buy up* the-lease and homestead  rights on practically his*-"own terms.  The thing had been done before in������  various parts of the cattle country. 3  Cattle and sheep cannot live on tlie"  same range, and when sheep take possession of a country, cattle must move  out of it, or starve. Ko wonder, then,  that the cattlemen of Crawling Water  Valley were aroused. ' Their livelihood was slipping away from them,.  day by day, for unless prompt steps  were taken 'the grass would be ruined  by the woolly plague.  Thus far, Gordon, Wade, a leader  in the cattle faction, had heen firm for  peaceful measures though some of the  ranchers had threatened an open war  on the herders. "Avoid bloodshed at  almost any cost," had been his ad-.  vice, and he had done his best to restrain the more hot-headed -'Members  of "his party, who were for shooting  the sheep and driving out the herders  at the rifle point. But there was a  limit, even to Wade's patience; and  his jaws squared grimly as he considered the probable result, should Moran  and. his followers, the sheep owners,  persist in their present course of action.  It was still very early in the morning When Wade arrived at the herder's camp. Oscar Jensen, a short,  thick-set man, with an unwholesome,  heavy"face, stepped out of the little  tent as the rancher rode up.  "Mornin'."  "Good-morning-;" The cattleman  affected a cheerfulness which he did  not feet. "Are these your sheep,  Mr. Jensen?" He waved In the  direction of the grazing band, a dErty  white patch on the green of the valley.  "Yes."  "Perhaps you don't know that you  are on Double Arrow land? I've ridden over to ask you to move your  sheep. " They're spoiling our grass."  Jensen, grinned saronically, for he  had been expecting Wade's visit and.  was prepared for it.  "I got a right here," he said.  "There's plenty good grass-here and  I take my sheep where they get i*at.  This is govcrnEtent land,"  "It is government land," "Wade  quietly acknowledged, "but you have  no right on it. I control, this range,  I've paid, for it, and unless you move  within the next twelve hours you'll be  arrested for trespass."  The sheepman's sullen face darkened with anger.  "Who'll do it? The sheriff! won't,  and I'm not -afeerd of you cattle men.  My ahe.ep.must eat as well as your  cattle, and I got a good right here. I  "won't move."  "Then remember that I warned you  if you get into trouble, Jensen. There's  plenty of open range and good water  on the other side of the hills. I advise you to trail your sheep ther<������ before it is too late. Don't think that  Race Moran can save you from the  law. Moran is not running this valley, and don't you  forget it."  "How do you know Moran's hac-kln'  me?" The Swede could not conceal  his surprise. "You can't bluff me,  Wade. I know* my rights, nnd I'm  goin' to stick to e'm."  "The devil you say!"     Now that, he  was sure of Moran's complicity In the  matter,  Wade   felt   himself  becoming  angry, in spite of his resotve-rto keep  ��������� cool.

The annual meeting of the Bank of  Montreal was marked by especially interesting addresses by both Sir Vincent Meredith, Bart., the President,  and Sir Frederick Williams-Taylor, the,!  General Manager.  Sir "Vincent in his address referred  particularly   to   the   conditions   -.that  prevailed  throughout  the  world.      In  dealing with .conditions in Canada, th������  President  made   special  reference   to  the .proposed revision of the Bank Act,  arid to the absorption.-ol*.  the    Met*-'  chants Banks.      Before beginning his  annual address, Sir Vincent also took  occasion to pay special tribute to.;the**  memory of������������the late "R. B. A*ngus,--who  had served I'or over 30   years   as    a  director of tho Bank and who also for  some years,had acted as General Manager.  Sir Vincent, discussing some of the  I developments of the year, said:,  "The banking year.just closed has  required constant vigilance and I* am  glad to be in a position to Inform you  that, while our profits on tho-hasis of  capital employed have not been as  large as those of the immediately preceding years, as was to he expected  with... lessened activity in business  generally, coupled with Incrensod taxation, we have been fortunate in escaping serious losses, and the liquid position and great strength of the* Bank  remain unimpaired,  "Since your last annual meeting,  the Merchants Bank has been absorbed by the Bank of Montreal. To  tho incidents connected with thia  transaction it is not necessary to  refer, nor to the criticism It evoked,  further than, to say that, in my Judgment,   the   prompt   action   ot   your  directors, subsequently ratified by  youi averted a situation that might  otherwise have proved serious to the  country at large, and secured the  shareholders of that institution from  losses greater than were suffered.  General  Manager's Address -  Dealing with the Canadian economic  position  Sir.;Frederick said:���������  "Canada's economic position is not-  satisfactory. How .could it be satisfactory, with the whole financial  world out of joint? . As*-everyone is  aware, pur. troubles are pax*tly the  trouble of this universal condition,  partly the result of the war. It is  well, however- to-bear in mind that  pur problems sire UvrBcly of our own  creation.  "Readjustment, will come in lime,  for tbis Is a country of virility and  manifold resources; yet one thing  stands out signally, in my opinion,  namely, that Canada cannot go ahead  again as she should while taxation  ancl the cost of living are higher in  this country than they are Jn the  United States of America.  "Canada Js one of tho beBt countries  to live in, to work in, to play ln���������in  point, of. stability, Hocurlty and comfort it is an earthly paradise as compared with Europe���������but we . must  not stand Btlll, and In order to progress tlw> cot,L of living and tuxatiou  must be diminished; otherwise wo  will fail 'to attract Immigration; and  Improved conditions are largely dependent upon increased population.

And.it i.s a logical  ���������conclusion that what benefits and adds.to the prosperity ol* the masses-of the  people cannot fail to prove -oi' advantage to the -financial, manufacturing,  transportation and general commercial iuterests.Vof the Dominion.  A substantial increase iii population means just so many more cousum  ers, potential buyers of bool-< and shoes, clothing"of all kinds, household furniture and utensils, farm machinery, huilding materials, books, groceries, and  so on down the whole list or* human requirements and even those things which   great  ..cater to people's enjoyment and entertainment. And every increase in demand means increased business for Canada's commercial and" manufacturing  interests and industries, and through them increased revenues to all financial  ahd .transportation companies and corporations. "���������  For example, the settlement oi oiuj iojvnship oC land now Vying vacant and  undeveloped would mean the construction: of quite a group of new larm residences, barns, outbuildings,-lence?. etc., with a resultant demand lor lumber,  hardware, cement, and other buildiug materials. it would mean an additional school' of two. Farm machinery of all kind<s would be requited. New  roads and possibly brldges-*wouW nave to be constructed calling for more road  machinesy, steel, cement, culverts and labor. The manufacture or these  things would call for the profitable investment ot capital, the employment ot  skilled workers in the work ol" manui'act-ure, and-of; unskilled labor in the production of needed raw materials. .In the haulage bi raw materials to the fac  tories, and tood and clothing for "the factory workers, and the finished products from factory to consumer' the railways would secure much needed  traffic, and, as the township became producing* return traffic to the markets  of the world. * - ���������*..*-  Everybody at all conversant with the transportation,.problem in Canada  -freely admits  that freight rates on grain and cattle from the .Test to the  "Has t are excessive and -constitute one of the great drawbarcks to agricultural  prosperity.      These rates uie high Vn-causc* the cars used lo move the. grain t  East -have to be hauled back to the West empty; consequently tlie oatsoins .  grain has to bear the expense ot the return haulage, there not being suHieient .  return freight.      Ana what is  true of grain is equally tr-ue of coal Irom the i  Western mines.      Only the other day  Canada's  chief of mines stated that, sands ot homes lighted  Western coal could not be used to meet Eastern demands, not chiefly because , left ull night in the windows, so thai  Australia can boast the Christmas  pantomime with the longest run. In  1007 "Mother Goose" was played all  the year round.  In olden-times the mistletoe was  considered a sacred plant because its  berries grow in   clusters    o_f three--  emblematic of the Trinity.  ^Ancient races held the mistletoe in  veneration,     particularly     the  Druids,    who   went in procession into  the forests to .collect it.
