The story of Ming Toy, the Chinese  girl, in "East is West/' at the Grand,  Saturday night, is simple enough.  Her father in Shanghai... thought to  sell her ns a wife-slave on the Love  Boat. Billy Benson,, an American,  helped ber escape to America. In  Chinatown, San Francisco, she was  admired by Charlie Yong, "'fifty fifty  -Chinaman." but on the day Charlie  was to have taken her Billy Benson  returned. There is more after that,  still simple, still fascinating. But tho  thing which has made "East Is West"  world famous as a play ia not its story,  but lhe remarkable personality of  Ming Toy.  Cojiulu.il c������    Talmadge,     presenting  * Bast is West*' on the  screen   aB the  greatest achievement  of   her   career.  bb imbued that role with  a vivacity,  a verve, a touch of  happiness  and  a  auaHty of pathos that Js ira-esisfcibl.  he sweeps from Shanghai to San  Francisco, strong In her love for Billy  Benson, enger to prove herself at  houie among the whitew, tn learn thoir  hnbltA ll iu unfortunate that tbe  only place whore she can observe  those customs is ut Kelly's Dance  Hall, which ia all that its name implies; eo that Ming Toy's flrst  achievements nre the gum habit, the  shimmy, the short skirt and a beautiful flow of slung. Her use of alt these  provides eonio of the high opotu of thc  production both in humor and in  drama.

The stoi*y ot that achievement  had    heen    bruited    about    C rawlius  Water  since   midnight,   together with _  the probability that-the Law would be i  invoked to punish the  ranchman  tor  his defiance of it.      Popular-sentiment  wa.s running high over the likelihood  of such a  step heing taken, and  the  members oC  the   posse -were  the  targets of many hostile glances from the  townspeople.      At  Least two-thirds ot  the citizens were strongly in favor of  Wade,    but    before    they took-active  steps in liis behalf they waited for the  return of a horseman, who  had hur-  VALUE IS GREAT  Canadian    Riphts    Arranged   With  Publishers, ' F. -"D.

"They gagged us first, so's we  couldn't sing out; then they filled up  the stove an' beat it."  What had promised io be a tragedy  had proved a fiasco, and Wade smiled  a little foolishly.  "The joke's   on us,  I  guess,  boys,"  he   admitted.       "But   isre've   got   the  ranch  back,  at   any   rate.       How  are j  you feeling. "Ed, pretty sliff and sore'.'"  "My Gawd, yes���������awful!"  "Me, too," declared Tom Parrish,  the'second of the victims; and the  third man swore roundly that he  would not regain the full use of his  legs before Christmas.  "Weil,   you're   lucky   at   that,"   was  Santry*s dry comment.    "All. that saved you from get tin'   shot up some in  the fight was layih* down in that corner where you was-."     He let his eyes  travel around  the littered blood-spattered room.      "From the looks o* this  shebang we musta stung some of 'em  pretty deep;  but nobody was killed, I  reckon.     I hope. Moran was the worst  hurt, durn him*"  "He'll keep." Wade said grimly.  "We've not done with him yet, Bill,  We've only just begun."  CHAPTER X.  The Senator Gets Busy  was    daylight    when the  It was daylight when the routed  -poss������\ with Race Moran in the lead,  his left arm tied urp in a bloodstained  handkerchief, rode into Crawling  Wati?r.

Rexhill,  with tousled hair, wrapped ia a bathrobe, from the bottom of which his  bare ankles and slippered feet protruded, sat on the edge of his bod,  impatiently, chewing an unlighted  cigar while'ho listened to Moran's ac-  ;M;   count of the fracas.  "You went too far. Race���������you went  1 too  far," he burst out angrily at last.  '���������You had no orders to jump the ranch.  I. told you    ..." j  "We've been fooling around long  enough, Senator;" Moran interrupted  sullenly, nursing-his throbbing wrist.  "It was high time somebody started  something, and "When I saw my chance  I seized it. You seem to think";���������liis  voice trailed into scorn���������"that we are  playing marbles with boys, but, I tell  you, it's men we're up against. My  experience has shown me that it's the  first blow that counts i������������ v.tty fight."'  "Well, who got in the hardest lick,  eh?" "RexhiU snorted sarcastically  "The first blow's alL right, provided  the second isn't a fcnockout from the  other side. Why, confound it, Race,  here we had Wade at our mercy. TIe'd  broken into jail and set free a suspected murderer���������a clear case of  criminality. - Then 3-011 had to spoil  it all."  Moran smothered an imprecation.  - "You seem to forget, Senator, thai  we "h^-d him at oui* mercy before and  you -wouldn't hear of it.. If you'd taken my advice in the first place, we'd  have had Wade in jail instead of Santry and things might have been different."  "Your   advice   was  worthless  under  the circumstances; that's why I didn't  take it."     Rexhill deliberately paused  and lighted his cigar? from which he  took several soothing puffs.      To havo  been aroused from his bed with such  news had flustered    him    somewhat:,  but he had    never    known    anything  worth while to come out of a heated  discussion, and he sought now lo calm  himself.      Finally,-   lie'  spoke   slowly.  "What you proposed to me then was a  frame-up, and ail frame-ups aro dangerous,   particularly  -when   they   have  little to rest upen.      For that reason  I refused to fall in  with  your ideas,  i Race.

Mr. McPhadden has been identified  with the people of Saskatoon*' for  "eighteen years; He is one of the  founders of the Saskatoon Co-operative "Society, Ltd.. and-his standing  and influence are too.well known to  require further comment. In relating his experience with Tanlac, Mr.  McPhadden said:  "T   have   found  Tanlac  to  be   a remarkable medicine  and   tonic.       For  a number"of years I had been bothered witli intestinal trouble and was in  ! a general run-clown condition.      I was  ! under   weight,   couldn't   sleep well  alT  j night, and felt tired ahd worn-out all  the* time.  Well, "nothing seemed lo reach my  case and I just kept gelling weaker.  Really, E don't think I could have  worked much-longer if: it had not been  for Tanlac. Et has been worth more  than all the money to me.

Tanlac is for sale by all good druggists. "���������  Over 35-million bottles sold.  "Will they send Government troops in  here on your say so?"  The Senator.,waved his hand in dismissal of the objection.  "I'll have Thomas wire the Governor that tlieJsituitlori is beyond control. This town is miles from nowhere, and there's no militia within  easy reach. The Slate will be glad  enough to save the expense, especially jyvith the soldiers close by at  Fort Mackenzie. Besides, you know^  'although Wade's ranch is inside the  State, a good deaj of his land is Government land, or was nntiL he filed on  it.".  When Moran had left the room in a  much easier frame of mind than he  came into it, the Senator sat down  heavily on the bed. He.was puffing  at his cigar ^ and thinking intently,  when he caught sight' of the white,  startled face of his daughter in the  mirror of the bureau across the room.  Whirling about, lie found her standing  in the doorway behind him. Rexhill  had never before been physically conscious of the fact that he liad a spine,  but in that moment of discovery a  chill crept up and down his back, for  -her expression told him that she had  heard a good deal of his conversation  with Moran. The most precious thing  to him in life was the respect of his  child; more_ precious even, he knew,  than the financial security for which  he fought; and in her eyes now he saw  that he was face to face with a greater  Dottle tiiau any ue had ever waged.

Moran was suffering-too ken el y from  his wound ancl smarting under his defeat too much fo be altogether reasonable. His manner was fast losing the  appearance of respect which he had  previously shown his employer. His  expression was becoming heated and  contemptuous.  "You didn't base your refusal on  logic at the time, Senator," he said. "It  was sentiment, if 1 remember right.  Wade had broken bread with you, and  all that. I don't see but'what that  applies just as well now as it did  then."  "IT doesn't," the Se-nator argued  smugly, still rankling from Wade's ar-  ; raignment of him the day before, "be  ! cause even hospitality has its limits*  of obligation. So long as I knew  Wade to be innocent, I did not care to  have him arrested; but I don't admit  any sentiment of hospitality which  compels me to save a known criminal  irom The hand of justice.

Rexhill arose and walked up and  down the room in thought, his slip-.  pered feet' shuffling over the floor,,  showing, now and then a glimpse of  his fat, hairy legs as the swirl of his  bathrobe fluttered about. A cloud of  fragrant smoke from his cigar trailed  him as he walked, and from the way  he chewed on The tobacco his confreres in the Senate could liave guessed that he was leading up to one of  his Czar-like pronouncements. Presently he stopped moving and twisted  the cigar in his. mouth, so that its  fumes would be out of his eyes, as his  glance focused on Moran.  "There's just one way out of this  mess. Race." lie began. "Now heed  what I say to you. I'm going to send  a telegram to the Department of the  Interior which will-bring a troop of  cavalry Gown liere from Fort Mackenzie. You must go slow from now on,  and let the authorities settle the whole  matter." ;.  The agent sat up alertly, as his employer, wagging a -ponderou's forefinger  impressively, proceeded.  "You were not on the ranch for the  purpose of jumping it at all. Mind  that now I You and I stand for the  majesty of the law iii this lawless  community." Moran's eyes began to  twinkle at this, but he said nothing.  "When you and Sheriff Thomas went  out to the ranch, you carried two warrants with you, one for Santry, as the  accessory, and one,for Wade, as the  principal, in the Jensen shooting. Yes,  yes, I know* what you are going to  say; but I must save my own bacon  now. Since Wade has proved himself to be a lawbreaker, I'm not going  to protect him."  "Now, 3'ou're talking!" exclaimed  Moran, delighted at the prospect of  what such a course would start going. J  "1*31 hare the matter of! the warrants j  fixed up with Thomas/' the Senator  continued. "Now, follow me carefully. Thomas arrested Santry at  the ranch, and then left you, aa hla  deputy, to serve the other warrant on  Wade when he came Home. It was  because of his knowledge of what was  In store for him that Wade, after getting Santry out of jail, attacked you  and your men, and it was in defense  of the law that you returned their Are.  It will all work out very smoothly, I  think, and any further hostilities will  come from tho other side und bc to  our great: nd vantage."  Moran looked at his employer in admiral Ion, as the lutter concluded and  turned toward his writing table.  "Senator," the agent declared, as  Rexhill took up his fountain pen and  began to wi'lfo on a telegraph form,  "you never should have sUirlod in  Denver. tf you'd beem born in little  Now York, you'd be fn the White  Mouse now. From this minute on  you and I. are going to carry this  whole valley In our ves<pockets."  "Vou  tako  IhlH over' and put It on  Influence   of  tfye  Planets  Have the Stars Any Effect on Human  Life?  Long ago it was thought that stars  had a great effect on us, and this belief  gradually grew into a cult called astrology.  Every action of our lives was attributed to the influence of the planets.  A child was born "under" such and  such a star, while other Stars had  more or less important powers over  him, too, and by the position of these  stars would his every action be regit-,  lated.  Later on we discovered that the  earth was, after ai!, o'TLiy a star itself,  and not a very important one at that,  and that it was not the centre of -the  universe as we had formerly thought.  Yet there may be something in astrology. The moon, we know, affeets  the sea tides, and probably also  creates atmospheric tides. . Pressure  of atmosphere decidedly does affect  yjs, mentally and bodily, and therefore  the old idea of the moon's affecting us  may not be so wrong as we once  tliotigh t.  >r Rheumatism  ~Qjuickirelieff  1 he quickness, the snreness  with which Sloan's brings relief has made it the standard  remedy for rheumatic pain..

Soap  and   Perfume  in   Great   Demand  ay the Bolsheviks  Smuggling has increased to such an  extent along "Russia's'western frontier  of late that observers estimate more  goods have been entering the Bolsheviki lines by illegal means than  through the regular channels. This,  is attributed to the demand in Russia  for foreign goods, particularly luxuries, and the fact that the government  still retains a monopoly on all foreign  trade. Many dealers object, to doing  business through the Soviet foreign  trade department on the ground that  because of the government "red tape/'  months are required before orders are  .filled. .  Communistic principles still hold  in questions, of foreign trade, and  Moscow and Petrograd business men  contend that because of the difficulties encountered in bringing goods  into Russia, through legitimate ways,  regular routes for ^.smuggling-y havre  been established and liave been working smoothly for many months. The  SovietsTiiare been guarding the frontiers for months far more rigidly tlian  previously, but despite the watchful  methods the smuggling has been increasing by leaps and bounds.  The practice pays handsomely because of the extraordinary demands  in Moscow, Petrograd and other Russian cities for luxuries, particularl3p  perfumes, soaps and other toilet articles, which retail at five or six times,  or even more, over the original pin  chasing price. - ���������>���������"���������������������������  Coral Aids in Building  The fossil coral of the Fiji Island*  is the;best7building:;stone7in' the woxid.

Cowan of the (forest branch, in  an address ta the Rotary Club.  Forest fires cost the province  about $23,000,000 in timber des  troyed, Major Cowan stated. One-  third of the total commercial timber cut was burned. Of the  2,030,000,000 feet of timber cut,  700,000,000 feet was destroyed by  fire.  The cost of fighting fires in B.C.-  last year was $750,000, and as this  -was borne by the government it  meant a direct obligation upon the  taxpayer.  According to Major Cowan, only  5 per cent, of the fires which ������rig=  inated in B.C. forests last year  ���������were caused by lightning. Logging camps   were   responsible   for  Harness and  Shoe Repairs  12 per cent, of the fires, and campers about one-third. He pointed  out that insurance companies had  declined to insure timber located  near camping grounds or settlements on account of the high fire  hazard.  Kaslo After Tourists  The value attached %o the tourist  business in British Columbia is  most strikingly demonstrated at  Kaslo where, last week, by a show  of four to one the ratepayers in  th at ri one too th riving town voted  to spend $5000 i~~ creating a lake  shore rendezvous for this class of  summer tirade.  And Kaslo's appreciation of this  business all the more striking when  it is remembered that as yet the  only way a tourist can get in or out  of town is by boat. In the not too  distant future it is reasonable to  expect that   the  highway between  which- is now completed, and favorably commented upon by all.  . Due to an exceptionally healthy  climate the burying ground is not  as densely: populated as is essential  to give the three-arre site the orth-  od ox last-resting " place appearance  ���������and not for-many years to come,  we trust, will this otherwise- to -be-  desired effect be produced,  -In the meantime, therefore, if  ~x.q prssesit pieasing appearSuce ox  Godl's acre is to be maintained no  time should be lost in effecting  some sort of plot owners' organization to see that care taking work is  done that wiii keep down the  growth of grass and brush, whilst  | with such funds as they have avail*  able the cemetery company will be  quite willing to go ahead with the  planting of treei and shrubs and in  other directions giving the cemetery  a well-ordered appearance through  out.

By way of an added attraction  the citizens are expending possibly  another two thousand in constructing a modern golf course���������another  essential to attracting the better  class of summer callers.  When one contrasts this progressive effort on the part of a retired-.  citizens town like Kaslo, with the  [ narrow guage an ti-municipal policy  that obtains in a main line town pf  considerable future possibilities like  Creston, one cannot dodge the  accusation that the dominant passion of our daily life as a people is  personal gain, with very little regard for anything else.

The Review has always backed  Chautauqua and vve have no hesitation in saying that we believa the  motive underlying the willingness  of the guarantors to take a chance  on **Irish dividends*" on Chautauqua is largely due to tire fact that  they strongly believe in giying the  youngsters a chance.   ;  In addition to the benefits conferred on the young life of the  Valley the grownups 'can obtain  much entertainment and some  mental profit by- listening to the  splendid lectures and musical offerings, and when one remembers that  we will make but one journey  through life and that.money is not  fireproof or of any use inside the  pearly gates why but a very few  in this community should pass up  such first-class entertainment is not  readily understood.

Mayor  Sutherland of Kelowna, who spent  a few days hi Crestoii in March, as  organizer for the Associated Growers, in discussing the prospects for  better fruit prices   this   year,   the  mayor  sounds   a   timely   note   of  warning against undue   optimism.  Taking into account all   the manifold difficulties confronting a   new  organization upon the  threshold of  its first  marketing season,   he emphasizes   that   the   quantity   and.  quality of this year's orop   will be  most important factors in determining the monetary results.    If growers are carried   off  their   feet   by  golden visions ���������of  a return to   halcyon days when the supplv of fruit  was small, the   market   keen   and  prices correspondingly   liigh,   and  thinning   and    grading   neglected  in order to market aB   much   fruit  as possible,, he forsees  yet  another  year of   disastrous   prices   such as  have   carried   the   fruit   industry  during the past two years perilously near tho  brink   of   bankruptcy.  He holds  that, more than   ever, ib  is an absolute necessity for growers  thin their fruit to the point of tenuity this year and  for the  packinghouses to grade moat rigorously, so  as to pack the largest possible percentage of No. 1 fruit,   and   tower  grado and culls should be  kept oil*  the market  altogether.      All indications point to  a very largo orop,  the prairie -market,   even   with improved methods of distribution, oan  only  aborb   a   certain   maximum  that is muoh loss than  the average  production   of   British   Columbia,  and other markets   are   uncertain  and flokle.  iaq   Am art)  PAINTER  WALLPAPCFt SAMPLES  CRESTON  6      B  MO., Lid.

This year the .Chautauqua pro  gramme is undoubtedly the finest ever  presented in Western Canada.

This  programme will inspire, instruct,,  inform and will make people feel that.  despite all that discourages life is big  S-T-O. well -roi-tli while.  The programme may be divided into  two parts: One of music of every  kind of instrument, of every variety  of human voice, rendered by bb me of  the finest artists in the musical, world*}-  the other, lecturers on current topics  by world-recognized thinkers and  foremost speakers.  Daniel Fox leads this great week of  educational culture with hia lecture,  "The fission of the Anglo-Saxon"���������a  soul stirring talk, that cannot help but  find response in the heart "of every  Anglo Saxon.   .     "...  Dr. Frederick'- Poole too, has a  thrilling story for every Britisher,  depicting vividly how Great Britain  recovered the Holy Land front the  Turks.

His language is the language of  the every-day maxf. As a matter of  fact, he has translated scientific terms  into every-dav speech.

that   Plan
Will Not Work Satisfactory
The   proposed   establishment   of   a
compulsory wheat board to handle the
1923 crop, was the subject of an interestingdiscussion at Portage la Prairie
on Saturday, March 10, when'-upwards
ot 50 leading farmers ot the  district
met   for  the   purpose   ol   pronouncing
their views in anticipation of a wheat
instance    Scot-1 board   bill   being   introduced into the

tivated it better    and    increased    the
production per acre.      Tbe same idea
of cultivating smaller farms has been
urged ���"by  Mr. Itpbert Forke, the new
Progressive   leader.      ittr.  Druniniond
notes that the average yield of: wheat
per acre in the west was better than
usual tbis year, but lie says:
"There has been .Something serious
ly  wrong,   when,  for
land  for  ten  years  gave  an average
production  of ,38   bushels,  and   those i
���who   can "recall4"'the  pioneer   days  of
Minnesota and Manitoba, know that a
farmer there was then somewhat sensitive  over   having  to   admit that  he
bad threshed less than  forty bushels
of No. One Hard wheat to the acre.
"Whilst    some    allowance- must be
' made for variations    in    the    rainfall
over7 the vast, areas of the three provinces and in plh&es foi* possible wind
storms and ev en frosts, the facts remain that not only has production, in
the  course   oi!  years,  grown  less  and
less, but the quality of the grain has
so deteriorated that No. One Hard is
becoming excessively scarce^ and No.
One Northern, the next grade, barely
^embraces two-thirds of thc inspected
crop.       I��  the   average   production  of
wheat this year had been thirty bushels  to   the acre,   the   three   provinces
should  have yielded,  in  wheat aloue,
614,000,000 bushels, instead of the expected    371,900,000.      Try    to    picture
- what a difference this would haye
made not "only to the farmers, but!; to
the railways there, aad to the many
hundreds oi* merchants in the small
towns  upon, these  railways;   and add
j- to this production a further increase
'. of over 150,000,000 bushels of barley,
*��� rye and flax from the 11,700,000 acros
- devoted to these grains this year.
"The average wheat product lias
:, gone as low as fifteen bushels. Can
anything be said in mitigation of this,
t if it is true that forty per cent, of the
[ acreage under cultivation on those
7 prairies is merely stubble land into
���   which in the spring    the    grain    lias
- been    simply    harrowed    or
'-..   There ia no getting over the facts that j
(   the land must be properly cultivated
.   to give good returns, and that, in ad-*'
'\   dition, whatever  is taken out of "the
J   soil by successive crops must be re-
"-. turned to it, or the crops will deteriorate.    The intensive farming in Franco,
'  and, to perhaps a less degree, in Eng-
\ land and Scotland, , results in large
crops per acre, but this is not possible
in our Canadian northwest under present conditions of cultivation. The
difficulties are: (1) The large size of
the farms, and the want of money and
help, ih the case of most settlers, to
cultivate even one-half of their land;
.S-.
���;'<2) the lack of concentration of the
,|population; (3> the eagerness of the
, settler to take Lhe shortest cut to ob-
. tain a crop, irrespective    of   results;
and (1) the want of the application of
fertilizers, and theiL* extreme cost.

Among   the   representative   farmers.
[ who spoke  were Ed. Muir, for many
years reeve of the rural municipality
of Portage-la Prairie, who was born i'n
Manitoba and has spent most of his
life farming upon a    large    scale,  at
High Bluff; Joseph Trimble, President
of the High Bluff local of the "United
Farmers, of Manitoba; Frank Baker, a
representative of the Farmers' Advocate-;    Thomas   Kitson,   a   prominent
farmer of Portage Plains; J. Tidsbury,
another leading farmer of High Bluff)
-who farms upon much the same scale
; as  Mr.   Muir;   Charles  Grobb   (Chair-
| man), another old-timer of Manitoba
and a large farmer himself; "W. Mackenzie, another member of the Portage    local    of    the U.F.M., and many
otbers.
Mr. Muir stated that he would much
rather listen to others than talk himself, but felt that the desire of the
farmers to secure a, better price for
their wiieStt would not be accomplished by a wheat board; in fact, the 1&19
wheat board was designed, he said, to
keep prices from going higher, to
stabilize financial conditions and stave
I off financial panic.
Conditions now were not the same
as in 1919; in that yeSar, said Mr. Muir,
all allied European nations were buy- ]
ing through one board;   not only bad
; that condition changed,  but the pow-*
ers provided in the federal bill for tlie
wheat board now proposed, were far
short   of   the   powers  which  the   ISlS
board  possessed.      During war, goy-
i ernments could exercise all manner 70��
I compulsory powers which could not be
called    into    play    iu times of peace.
drilled ? f The 1919 board bad power over transportation;  it bad power over terminals at the head of the Great Lakes:���
'���full   control,  in  fact;   it  had   control
over milling  and flour  and also  had
the friendly co-operation of the grain
trade    and    those    who owned grain
handling facilities. _'
The proposed board for 1923 would
not hnA*e those-powers ; and in spite or
having these powers,; the 191.9, board
bad not been a success from tlie
standpoint of securing better prices
lor the farmers. The average price
secured by United States farmers during the operations of the 1919 board
was 60 cents per bushel higher than
the $2.<53 -secured by the Canadian farmers for No, 1 Northern. As a matter of fact, many farmers adjacent to
the international boundary, hauled
their grain across and secured the
higher prices.'
There was no duty on wheat in 1919
and   had   it   not   been for the wheat
board the Canadian farmer would Have
average  of! Kot a far better price    thau   he    did.

Mr.    Joseph    Trimble,f President ofri
the HighJBlufE local of th'e "U.F.M., declared;  tliat    he'''was opposed to the:*
wheat board for, many    of   the   same;
reasons as advanced    by    Mr.    Bfuir.
There were no financial arrangements;!
that could be worked out. he said, im-';
der the proposed plan.      Without control of transport, terminals and flour,
it was a poor, weak and lame attempt-
to handle the wheat crop of this country,     lie added: "I feel that the west-;
em provinces have harvests later than
ours and have not the railway facilities*) that we have, and oasing to the
distances they have to haul they can't
market it as early in the fall as we do.*

system of co-operative marketing.'Mr.

of them had wanted a wheat board.
Mr. Trimble regretted that tbe roads

feel that it would be a very grave injustice to tlie province of Manitoba for
us to market:on any programme like
that at the present time."
Mr.   Mackenzie    felt that these expressions  should  have   been  brought
out long before; he voted for a wheat
board  at the last  U.F.M.' convention,
being    fairly    well satisfied  with the
operations of the 1919 board.     He recalled    that    Mr.    Rice-Jones, of the
United   Grain   Growers . Limited,   had
declared that he would not accept Lhe
chairmanship of a 1923 board, giving
as a reason-, that he    did    not   know
enough    about   transportation.     Premier -Bracken, hc  also recalled,  had
pointed out that    Manitoba    farmers'
stood to lose in premiums.
. Mr. Wr Hyde and Mr. Thomas Kit-
son both expressed tlie view    that   a
wheat    board,    compulsory or otherwise, was not tho proper system for
handling the wheat crop.    "Both believed the present system the best, with
a better degree of co-operation among
the farmers such as could be brought
aCout.       W.   O.  Hall   endorsed   these
views;,and strongly opposed the sacrifice ot Manitoba's advantages and the
premiums gained  through  early  harvest and early mnrketing.
Chairman Grobb declared that he
had talked with Premier Bracken personally and tliat the premier was-not
in favor of thn wheat board. When
one considered the price Of "Vl'iini-loba
liuad, we should not give any bouquets
to Saskatchewan ,and Alberta. It
would be hnpoHsiblq "to get any ready
money next fall If* the wheal, board

From U.S.
(By G. C. Porter of Winnipeg")
Chicago, 111.���There  is a  decidedly
optimistic spirit ruling among the Interests on this side of the line engaged in sending prospective settlers and
land buyers to Canada.     I have found
it general and they quote figures that,
in their ondgment-justifies their view.
For instance, J. N. K. Macalister, in
charge  of the  natural  resources  department of the  Canadian Pacific: at
St.  Paul, told me  that:'-"There is a
substantial revival of: interest among
people on the south side of the line
concerning Canadian farm lands.    My
inquiries up to Jan. 20 are actually in
excess of those for the entire previous
year.*-     I should say we will do a very
considerable  business  in  the  sale   oi
western    prairie    farms this year, in
fact, we  are doing it right now with
the prospects better   than   tor   iifany
years.     Our prospects have money to
invest and  will investigate  Canadian
farm, propositions before they .decide
on a location."
DeWitt Poster, Superintendent of
the natural resources department of
the National- Railways in the United
States, is equally confident. He said
his inquiries from people desiring to
go north will average sixty a day by
mail and nearly as many, at this season of the year, in personal calls. He
has a mass of data tabulated and ilLed
by which he is able to very accurately appraise the situation. His system is most complete. Tor Instance,
he finds that in earlier years the aver-

The 3rear 1922    as    regards    homer
