 *0pmXj2t\a*4*;m-f0t.  -PiZZSti-  y-.y-  II  Vol. XV. -  GREiSTON, B. C:t FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23,  192?  No. 42  Road Expenditure  1923 is Generous  Win. Ramsay,   of   Nelson,   district  engineer for the department of public  works, was hereon Friday   for a final  inspection of the new road at Kitchener, which the   government   is   taking  over from the contractors this month.  With the exception of a short stretch  at the extreme east end   the road is in  fine shape, niuch of it having already  b������sen gravelled.      If  there is no heavy  traffic at the Kitchener end before the  freezeup the roadbed will   be right for  gravelling first thing in the spring and  will thus put the new  road ..*.* in   great  shape right from the start of the auto  season.  The diversion of the Arrow Creek  road has all been slashed and Mr.  Ramsa y" is expecting this will be one  of the first appropriations available  and construction of this last link of  the high class highway between Kitchener and Kuskanook will likely be  commenced early in April���������by day-  labor if at all possible so as to save  time of calling for tenders and the  usual delay of contractors getting  started.  Mr. Ramsay is iucluding in tbe 1924  estimates money for the necessary  repairs to the road in the Goatfell section, and with this work done there  can be no complaint on the travelling  of the main roads from one end of  Oreston Valley to the other.  Hard surfacing will be carried on at  Alice   Siding   until   the   end   of   the  month if the weather is at all" ffavor-  . able and by that time the  good   road  will be completed to the westerly limit  near the Constable   ranch.    The   balance of the appropriation   will be used  at the opening of the 1924 season   to  make the connection with the' Caeston  and of the hard surface highway...������ Mr.  Ramsay^ is also  hopeful that .*���������*��������� the hard  gurface grant for 1924 will be sufficient  fco get a start in the Canvon  Oity district which   will   probably   take   two  seasons to complete. '  Now that the longest stretches of  really bad road have been taken care  of the engineer is asking for generous  consideration for the putting in of a  number of settlers roads, tbe most  expensive of which are at Arrow and  Lizards Creeks and West Creston.  He inspected the new road at Canyon"  put in to avoid the steep school hill  and was well pleased with the work  done and the excellent grade established which at no spot is more than 11  per cent, as compared with SO per  cent, on the old route. The mill road  at Arrow Creek on which the department put in a new bridge is also satisfactory, the trip to the Johnston mill  being readily made by auto.  According to information tabled in  the legislature last week on request of  Col. Lister. M.P.P., the Kaslo riding  has been much moire generously treated that the original estimates intended.  When these were brought down in the  house last session but $42,000 was  shown as -appropi iuted for the Kaslo  riding this vear, but to date just over  $57,200 haa been expended. Of this  amount the new Kitchener road cost  $21,060, and the minister states this is  well within the contract price. On  hard surface road work $4680 waa  spent in the Brkkaon area and to date  $4302 has been spent at Alice Siding.  large local turnout. The music was  f urn ished by the Demchuk orchestra  supported by the pianola. Probably  the feature of the evening was the  square dance called off by Bob Walnis-  ley of Creston. Old time '���������' experts at  ������������������square" dancing say they never saw  anything quite so original as the  figures Bob put the dancers through,  despite the handicap of, executing  some of the more or less highland  features to music from a Ukranian  orchestra.  The first snow of the season was in  evidence on Monday morning; with  another supply coming on Wednesday.  Neither of them lasted longer than  half a day, however. **  B-, Alderson of Hosmer is  at the ranch this week.  Assembly Native  Sons is Organized  Creston Assembly No. 19, Native  Sons of Canada came into existence at  a well attended -meeting- of the local  Canadians at tho Bluebird tea room at  the Creston Hotel on Friday night.  In addition to the enthusiastic attendance- there were many phone calls'  from those who had signed the application for the charter regretting that  owing to the short notice given of the  meeting other appointments had to be  attended, but although: unable to be  present all stated their'willingness to  stand by any arrangements that were  completed at the .preliminarv session.  C. E. Dot-man  of Kitchener, president pf the Grandview Assembly, and  a   visitor  Frank Simister, who has been working at Butte. Montana, for some  months past, is renewing acquaintances at Alice Siding this week.  Tom Wilson of Nelson was here this  week trying out the duck shooting on  the sloughs in this section.  Mrs. Victor Carr and son. Bertell,  were weekend visitors with friends at  Wynndel.  The rainy fall we have had has had  its drawbacks. In spots the pasture  on the flats is so soft that cattle have  difficulty in getting about, and one  day last week George Hood had to.  shoot a cow that was stuck so fast that  it was impossible to pull her cut.  The gold roads crew is this week  ploughing up the highway at the Alice  Siding end of the Compton ranch and  are using some of the material for filling in at the dip.  Mrs. Dick Smith spent* a few days  last week at her home at Porthiil. attending tha wedding of her sister, who  was married to Fred Smith of that  town on November 18th.  Mrs. Pope was a visitor with Mrs.  "Watson at Kitchener a few days last  week.  The fine open weather we have had  this season sees fall work of all kinds  further advance than for many years  past.  Mr. Downs of Hosniei was a visitor  at the Anderson ranch for a few days  last week.  Quite a streak of horse buying has  been done by Alice Siding residents  the past few days, amongst those securing new horses being Messrs. Kelly,  Carr and Vaness, whilst Mr. Churchill  purchased another milk urtw.  Japanese Relief Jag Day  Saturday   December  1st,   has  been   selected as   Japanese  Tag  Day for Creaton Valley    and the  Women's Institute committe are  arranging for the   sale of tags at  all points from Kitchener to Sirdar,    -with    the   school   children  handling   the sale.    It is   hoped  the tags will   sell   for   not   less  than 10 cents each     There is no  occasion to draw attention to the  very -worthy cause --to   which the.  funds will be devoted and a very  liberal response is hoped for.  BRAND THEATRE  Saturday, H0������.  A. C. McMillan of thf" Vancouver  Assembly^ were pres^^The/ fcu-tnerj  was chosen to preside������jarid-in ^'his  troductory remarks .O^^tlinedL '���������e������*y  clearly the aims and objects of the  organization, and these "were briefly  concurred in bv Mr. McMillan. As a  frequent visitor to Creston in the past  three ye-irs the latter speaker was in  qu te an excellent position to point out  many directions in which the-.Native  Sons could render the community  much useful service.  Major Mallandaine and R. B. Staples  eaoke enthusiastically of the benefits  that would be conferred on Canada by  the form ation of many assemblies of  the Native Sons, and were in hearty  sympathy with Mr. McMillan that the  organization would - be particularly  helpful to Creston.  Nearly all present expressed themselves as heartily in favor, nob the  least enjoyed of the remarks were  those made by one of the youngest of  the Canadians present, Walter Lawrie,  who pointed out several avenues along  which the Sons could operate to great  advantage.  On the customary motion, being  presented to establish an assembly  here, the following temporary officers  were selected:  President���������R. B. Staples.  1st Vice-President���������Victor Mawson  2nd Vice-President���������W.  B. Martin.  Secretary���������"Walter J. Lawrie.  Treasurer���������M. J.

It was decided to put on a drive for  more members with a view to enroll  ing 100 within  the next -three weeks,  about   which .time   Creston   will   be  favored with a visit fi.om some of the  arvise  Soldier Memorial  The' NoVember session of Creston  Board of T-^ade on Tuesday night was  favored with a very large turnout 'of  members President C. G. Bennett  occupying the chair, and considerable,  important business was transacted.  That Creston is becoming know far  beyond the ^onfines of the North  American continent was indicated in a  letter from Thomas L&ing of Aberdeen. Scotland, who wrote enquiring  if there were any deposits of clay suitable for brick and tile making. He is  a practical man in this line of manufacture and if the material is here and  there is any prospect of such an industry succeeding he would like to locate  and start such an industry on a small  scale. As there are clay deposits of  the quality desired on which, favorable  government reports have been made,  a committee composed of Major Mallandaine and C. O. Rodgers was named  to give Mr. Laing all the information  desired.  In addition to the usual batch of enquiries-regarding land values, etc.. one  of which enquired as to whether home-  steading would be permitted when  Kootenay Flats area is drained, there  was a letter from Dr. Nether ton, dentist, Kermeos, who wished to know if  Oreston was in a position to supply  sufficient practice*for a resident dentist.

A letter was read from Robert Stark,  chairman of "-the soldiers' memorial  committee, asking-that the board of  trade take into consideration the matter of assuming trusteeship of the  memorial. The old committee will be  responsible for paying joff any back  debts but the members of the original  committee felt that some public body  should now take the responsibility for  the supervision of the pillar, and knew  of none so competent of discharging  this duty on behalf of the citizens as  the board of trade. The matter was  very fully discussed und it was unanimous agreed that the board would become trustees at the' first of the year  and that a memorial committee will be  added to the other standing committees of the board to take care ,of the  monument. It is likely the first effort  will be to have a rail erected around it  and some slight improvements nu-tde  on the grounds in front of the shaft.  Major Mallandaine reported progress  on the selection of a ���������"middle" route  for fchp* proposed north and south  road that would better Bcrve Oreston  and Lister than any of the two roads  already mentioned. B. C. Gibbs also  reported progress for the tourist camp  site committee. Likely grounds had  been selected but as yet the owners  had not definitely agreed upon u rental price for the use of the land.  The matter of enforcing   the pound  law is still a live subject, one member  the morning previous having  had the  pleasure of driving a herd of some sixteen animals after a night's pasture in  his alfalfa.     A   committee   has   been  named to see H. S. McCreath. former  holder of the position, to get  him to  take on the  work  again, and the attention of   the   department   is   being  called to the innclequatc   scale   of f-oes  allowed for feeding unitnals imponded.  District engineer   W.  Ramsay   will  be written to pointing out  the oppot-  tuness of putting the graders   on   the  roads and getting them in good shape  for winter traffic.  ��������� '-   B������    B.Hm     m    BBm  Ew B   m WW   E������ D   ������m.-.������  ~m IVI I*.,  ,Wmt*&-t~*���������mi      ^^        ^mwi-^^. ^W*        ^���������t.

A terrific earthquake, or series of earthquakes, tumbled the buildings of the two great cities of Tokio and Yokohama  into piles of wreckage. Fire immediately following swept the ruined cities,  destroying what the earthquake shocks had left. Then came huge tidal  waves which wip������d out many of the seaside resorts and towns.' Seldom has  destruction heen so swift and so complete.  The losses were appallingly great in people killed, in the enormous numbers injured, in the destruction ot* business houses., homes, food, clothing, and  even the means ot livelihood for untold masses ot* the people. A despatch  from Osaka states that the afflicted area extends about 140 miles east and  west, and 110 miles north and south, roughly 45,000 square miles, containing  live big cities and thirty-three counties, with a combined^population of seven  million, people. About 70 per cent, of the cities, towns and villages were destroyed. Tokio, ol* which approximately three-quarters was destroyed, was the  world's third largest city.  As one paper, in summing up the news despatches, notes, there was no  lime lo save anything; the land heaved and opened; fires started in the ruins  of wrecked buildings and spread swiftly through the tinder-like materials, and  then came the waves from the frightfully disturbed sea, giant walls of water  smashing in upon the stricken land, drowning the panic-stricken people by  thousands.  This terrible calamity has called forth the sympathy of the whole worM,  sympathy which is finding expression In practical measures of relief on a  large scale commesurate to the gigantic need. "Like all great catastrophes,  it is also proving the metal of men. Stories of heroism and self-sacrifice, of  endurance almost beyond human powers, are beginning to filter through to  the outside world, and it must be a source of national pride to Canadians that  possiblj- no finer service was rendered in this terrible emergency than that  by (.he officers and crew of the Canadian Pacific liner "Empress of Australia."  The story of the part played by that vessel is one to stir the feelings and  arouse the enthusiasm of tlie most sluggish person.  The Government of Canada lost no time in extending sympathy and practical help on behalf of the Canadian p.eople. Within a few days of the disaster the "Empress of Russia" sailed from Vancouver with over 500 tons of  relief supplies, and was the first vessel to reach Japan with supplies from  America. On that vessel sailed two Canadian "Red Cross nurses to assist in  the organization of the white population ot" Japan for relief work, and with  them w*ent the first consignment of Red Cross relief supplies in the shape of  twenty tons of preserved milk.  Acting at tlie request of ihe Dominion Government, the Canadian Red  Cross Is making and organizing a nation-wide appeal for voluntary contributions for Japanese relief, and already some, hundreds of thousands of dollars  have been received. The campaign is being directed by the several Provincial Divisions of the Red Cross. In Manitoba an aggressive publicity campaign is under way. In Saskatchewan and Alberta, owing to the busy harvest season making it difiic-ult to organize a thorough appeal during September, the appeal was deferred until October and is being incorporated with the  annual Red Cross appeal in these Provinces.  But in vie v.- of tlu* urgent need for immediate relief, the Saskatchewan  Division, voted ���������So,1'"'-} om of its emergency fund and sent it forward, in tho  nam** of ihe people of the Province, while the Alberta Division made a generous offer of hospital supplies. Both Divisions are receiving many voluntary  rontribuiions in a dv since nf the October appeal. In-British Columbia, with  Lf.-: more in limine knowledge of the Orient, the response to the Red Cross  appeal  i.s  widespread and  generous, while tho  British Columbia -Government  Permission   to   import   Oleomargarine  Revoked at Last Session of  Parliament  As a war-time relief, permission  was given by the Parliament of Canada in 1&17 - to admit oleomargarine  which for thirty years had been excluded from trade in this' country.  This was revoked at the last session'  of parliament, and hereafter, oleomargarine and other dairy produce substitutes are barred from Canada,  "While the manufacture and importation ceased at the end of August, dealers are given until the end qf February, 1924, to dispose of their stock.  The other products to be excluded  are renovated butter, filled milk, filled cream and filled butter. These  contain certain proportions of fats  other -^han the fat of milk, and after  October 1, of the current year^hey  may no longer be imported or sold.  Swollen Joints,  Quickly Limbered Up  Rub On Nerviline  You would be surprised at the wonderful action of "Nerviline" in just such  cases. Being thin and not an oil preparation, it is able to penetrate quickly, and  down it sinks into the tissues, carrying  its healing, soothing* action wherever it  goes. For stopping muscular or nerve  pain, for easing a stiff joint, Nerviline is  a complete success. Pain. soreness,  stii'Cness all vanish before the magic power of this wonderful liniment. Nearly  fifty years of success proves the merit of  Nerviline, which is sold everywhere in  large 35 cent bottles.  \r  Perfect pancakes ever ij time  Good pancakes one morning; poor ones  the next.

Increase In Pure-Bred Animals  The record parachute jump, which  was 24,000 feet, required 30 minutes  in the descent.  THE FALL WEATHER  HARD ON LITTLE ONES  Canadian fall weather is extremely  hard on little ones. One day it is  warm and bright and the next wet and  cold. These sudden changes bring  on colds, cramps and colic, and unless baby's little stomach is kept right  the Jesuit may be serious. There is  nothing to equal Baby's Own Tablets  in keeping the little ones well. They  sweeten the stomach, regulate the  bowels, break up colds and make baby  thrive. The Tablets are sold by medicine dealers or by mail at 25 cents a  box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co., Brockville, Ont.  Large Increase in Canada Noted in the  Last Decade  There have been large increases in  the number of pure-bred animals in  Canada during the decade between the  last two censuses. The increase in  the number of pure-bred horses between 1911 and 1921 was 44 per cent.;  of cattle, 139 per cent.; of sheep, 75  per cent.; and of swine nearly 44 per  cent. The number of pure-bred  horses in the Dominion in 1921 was 47,-  782; cattle, 296,656; sheep, 93,643; and  of swine, 81,143.  Many have been relieved of corns  by Holloway's Corn Remover. It has  a power of its own that will be found  effective.  Says Honest Money Is Best  Emmet Dalton, the last of the famous Dalton brothers', gang, which terrorized the west a century ago, says:  "A dollar honestly earned is worth  $10,000 obtained by fraudulent means."  He spent fourteen years in prison*to  expiate his crimes.  Nansen Coming to Canada  A dispatch confirming the approaching visit of Dr. Fridjof Nansen to Canada and the United States, has been  received by the League of Nations Society in Canada, under whose auspices he will make a number of addresses. Dr. Nansen is due to be in  Winnipeg on November 21 and 22.

When those powers are  Questioned, as they have been ^recently, an^nvestigation is not out of place  for the purpose of determining whether Canada's claim as a great-, and prospectively greater, corn country has any  solid l'oundation.in. fact;: I have therefore secured���������,-JrifQ'^atio'Q;-;*-fr**qm^a. Canadian authority;."^ 'to'substantiate the'Dominion's claim to preeminence as a wheat-producing coun-.  try. There "is evidehce which suggests that Canada will, in time, produce more wheat,; and ol" a higher  grade, than any other country in the  world. ���������               1 3  That Canada is entitled to be called the '"granary of the Empire" is  borne out by. the following -figures,  which show the wheat production ot  the  principal   producing- units  of  the  Empire  22): ���������  for the year    3921     (or    3921-  \  Bushels  300,858,100  250,469,333  146,606,000  74,000,000  8,6S9,000  6,000,000  Canada ..   India   Australia ".  Great Britain and Ireland  South Africa .  New Zealand   ....  That Canada will continue to hold  this title is evidenced..by the. fact that  not more than 15 per cent, of her  wheat land 5? now under crop. The  production in 1922 amounted to- 399,-  786,400 bushels, an increase of 98,928,*  300 bushels over the 3 921 figures given above. While actually India is a  close second, relatively she is far behind, inasmuch as* Canada produced  about 35 bushels per head in 3 923, as  compared with India's less than one  bushel per head.  There   is   another   question   in4 dispute,      lt has'^tTC-en declared that the  attempt to push the wheat belt northward  in   Canada   has   been   a  failure.  If that were so the future ol" the Dominion,    as    a wheat-producer,*- would 1  stiii be of first-rate importance, as the j  rest, of Canada, about which there is j  - no question, is capable of an enormous  annual production.      But, as a matter  of fact,  excellent grain is no-a*"* _grown  in these northern districts.      The expansion of. the whea^ belt northward  in Canada'is by-no'means a failure;  but,  on the contrary, has  been a  decided success.    Wheat from the Peace  River Valley, in Alberta, took the lirst  prize at the World's Columbian Exhibition  in  1S93,   and the  area  of  wheat  grown  in  that   district   is  rapidly   increasing.    Iu those northern latitudes  four and five grains to the cluster are  found, as against two or three in the  United States or more southern countries, those of Canada are superior to  those of Great Britain for the production of wheat.    The British Isles have  too much moisture    to    produce    thc  hard   wheat  grown  in Canada.       Excess of moisture produces wheat lacking in protein    content    and    baking  strength.  Owing Lo thc large amount of Britisii capital invested in wheat lands,  elevators, railways, steamships and  othor allied interests in the western  provinces of Canada, it becomes a  matter of the utmost importance as to  whether Canada is tp go forward or  backward ih lhe work of feeding the  American and European continents.  The popular impression has been, and  ���������still is, thai Canada, if adequately de  volbpcd, can product enough -wheat. Lo  make sure the world's supp 1;y of bread  I'or  u great many years   to  come,  an  impression which is founded on irrefutable data. As to whether the Dominion of Canada is likely to be the  greatest wheat-growing country in the  world, tliere can only be one answer.  That country Is now the second largest producer of wheat, and will assuredly become the greatest producer and  exporter within a very few years.  With but 15 per cent, of her ayailable  wheat areas under crop, and a rapidly increasing area being brought under annually, the Dominion should before . long out-distance the United  States ih wheat production.  In view of the attitude of the Labor  party in this country in opposing  migration to Canada, it is an interesting question whether English farmers  going out can make money by wheat-  raising, or whether the Canadian picture generally has been overdrawn. I  may say in this connection that English farmers who have sufficient capital to engage in farming in Western  Canada can, undoubted l_r, . engage  profitably in wheat-growing. True,  the price of wheat at the present time  is at "rather a low level. But, even  under the present conditions, the skilled farmer who is comparatively free  of debt, and in a position to give per- }  sonal attention to his farm, should ,  certainly succeed in grownig wheat at  a profit.  Land/can be purchased now at low  prices,   and  the  settler  will  probably  | reap the benefit, of increased values in  | his    land    holdings.       There    is    no  ' justification   for   throwing   cold   water  on    Canada    as    land I'or the British  migrant who   looks  to  farming  for  a  Great Interest Was Shown  In Canadian Exposition Train  \\Hiicii Has Been Touring France  George Gordon, Editor and Proprietor  of The Herald, Ponoka, Alberta.  -   ,;  Placing fhe Blame  livelihood.

On July 16th the Canada-France  Exposition Train, consisting of some  30 specially constructed motor coaches  containing samples of Canadian manufactured goods and products of field,  mine, forest and river, left Havre on  its three months' tour of France, the  itinerary including stops at practical^'  all important cities and terminating  at Paris on October 8th next.  It Is to Senator Charles Beaubien  of Montreal that the credit.for this  moving exposition of Canadian products must be given, and it is only  after some years of constant work a.nd  propaganda that it was finally brought  to fruition and the support of manufacturers and the Canadian and  French Governments secured. Interviewed on the subject, Senator Beaubien is reported from Havre to have  said:  "I do not ignore the fact that the  operation of this exposition in France  will take some years to bring results,  Without doubt the war, which left its  mark on many European countries, de-  the franc, but in spite of  that our exports to France are today  superior by 400 per cent, to those of  1913, and at the end of its last fiscal  year the United States had sold to  France more than $220,000,000 of merchandise. If, thanks to this exposition train, we succeed in doubling our  trade with France, our efforts will  have been worth while. Whatever  the result, we will have brought about  a novel propaganda in France which  during six months will cause the name  of Canada to be on the lips of Frenchmen In all parts of the Republic."  In a message from Premier the  Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King to the  French people, published in the French  Press, he expresses Canada's pleasure  at the co-operation of the French Government, In the following words: ���������  "Canada, in sending an exposition  to France, takes, with pleasure, the  occasion to reply to the bonne entente  which exists between the two countries and to draw closer the bonds of  friendship which unite them, entente  and desire which was clearly demonstrated by the splendid exposition of  French Arts and Industry which toured Canada in 1921.  "The friendship which this exchange  of visits inspires, augments and reinforces the mutual respect and admiration consecrated during Ahe war on  French soil by the common sacrifice  of our glorious armies, wiU not be  .lessened by the occasion which offers  to make known to each of us the products of the two countries.  "It is good, therefore, that Canada,  of all the countries of the earth, which  has known how_to unite the deseend-  ents of those valiant men and women  who have remained loyal to the flags  of France and Britain, and to make of  their descendants a great nation, should now reinforce the. bonds.  "The English and French in Canada  have -united, in the national life of the  couitry, all the best traditions, the  highest courage and other qualities  which have come down to them from  their antecedents. Canada was  proud in 1921 to extend the warmest-  of welcomes to the French exposition  train which visited the Dominion, and  It is with the same spirit of friendship  and perfect understanding that she  now sends her exhibits to France."  The    interest    which the  Canadian  exposition train is creating in France  is excellent.      The public are thronging by the thousands to view the exhibits  in  the   afternoons   and   by  the  tens  of thousands    in    the    evening.  Pamphlets  are being distributed,   the  natural  resources  of Canada   explained,   and   everything   possible  done   to  convey to the French public a proper  idea of Canada's greatness���������-what it is  and   what   opportunity   she   offers   for  settlement,   trade  and manufacturing.  At each point where the train stops  the delegation is official ly welcomed by  the  civic authorities, there  is a complimentary luncheon  or- dinner, a reception by the Chambre de Commerce  and  an  official   inspection  of the  exhibits.  Accompanying     Senator     Beaubien  are Prof. H. Laureys, Director of the  School of Higher Commercial Studies,  Montreal;   Dr.   Ami,   of   Ottawa,   Government    expert    on    minerals;     Mr.  Georges Bouchard, M.P., Prof, of Ste.-  Anne    de   la    Pocatiere    Agricultural  School; and "Lieut.-Col. H. Barre, Canadian   Commercial   Agent    at "* Paris.  Thirty  young   Canadians,  mostly  students, are accompanying the'train and  giving their services free as lecturers.  At  the  conclusion  of the  tour   the  exhibits will be displayed in the Place  de   la   Concorde,     Paris,     where     the  French    Government    have    specially  prepared   a  building  in   the   Tuiieries  ^;**i'^*  Quickly  Conquers  Ctsmtimmn  Gardens.

Grandma "was growing ;  very  frail,   but   her  clever old  hands  were never idle, and it took two of the ;  girls from the office to keep her sup- j  plied    with    wool    for the socks  she;  made.      As the months slipped by our ,  house became the headquarters for a  group of girls and young women who  came to sew*fend knit and pack boxes,  and to exchange the news from overseas letters.      My old circle had been  very much, broken up.      The Middle-  ton" girls were both nursing overseas,  one    in    France    and    one in Egypt.  Maiidie had gone into lier father's office and was only free in the evenings.  Julia Elton  and    Kathleen     Manners  were  doing  V.A.D.   work  in  England.  And Elsie Fanshawe had married one  of the Harland boys and gone to stay  with his people while he was away���������  he transferred to the Imperials in '17  and was killed in Mesopotamia.

Murray did not come home until August of 1919, although he was one of  the first prisoners to reach England.  It was only in his first Jetier from  ���������ondon that I learned what-had really  appened to him, that he had been  Quite badly gassed at the time he was  taken prisoner. At a result of that,  and of unsuitable food, he had for  months suffered from an -ulcerated  stomach, and there was some fear that j than  the Winnipeg Sister, with a shakily-  written postscript from Murray him-  sell, to say that the operation "had  been very successful, and that I might  begin house-hunting at once, as I was  going to have a perfectly good husband before long. But the house was  ready before the husband was, Murray's convalescence was slower titan  either of us had expected. And E  shed my last tears for many a day  over a snapshot the Sisteir sent a������  month later, though I am glad I had it"  to prepare me for the man who came  back in the place of the boy who had  gone.  After two weeks of intensive culti-  vation-of Real Estate agents E rented  a cottage near the river on Parkview  street. Rents were a scandalous  height, the-places I could afford were  all undesirable in one way "or another*,  and those I liked were too expensive  for me. I really took the cottage on  Parkview Street because of its having  a nice little garden, and, a screened  veranda at the side ol" the house instead of facing the street. It was not.  a bad little place, though the rooms  were tiny and the kitchen chimney  was exceedingly temperamental, and  the kiddies and I had a lovely time  "getting ready for Daddy." Everyone in Winnipeg was house-hunting  ^fchat summer, it seemed, women who  *had been ''doubling up" or living with  relatives were, like myself, preparing  for the return of their men, and I soon  concluded that I had been lucky to find  so satisfactory a home.  I was fortunate, too, in having so  little furniture to buy, for furniture  prices were even more unreasonable  than rents. Mother's nice old things  gave quite an air to the place, and  though I had set my heart on a fireplace, an electric stove, and one of  those adorable porcelain kitchen cabinets, I was very happy as I tucked  the babies into their cribs that first  night under our own roof. Winnipeg was still in a state of unrest after  the strike that had been our first taste  of the aftermath of war, but it seemed  that I could think of nothing but my  own affairs. I had my home and ray  children, and soon I would have Murray���������strikes and kitchen cabinets  were of secondary importance.  I am not ordinarily an introspective  sort of person, but I must confess that  during the month I was alone I sometime found myself wondering what  Murray and I would think of each  other when we ~met again after so long  a separation. Papers and magazines  were full of stories and articles dealing with after-the-war cotfaitions as  affecting marriage and tlie home, and  wherever one went, the subject was  discussed, either with frankness or as  material for scandal.  One heard of men who were dissatisfied and who could not settle to their  responsibilities, of men who could find  i*nothing good in Canada or in Canadian  | women, of women who had failed in  * their duty during, the absence of their  husbands. ' .   i  j One of my girl friends confessed to  l me that she had been "awfully disap-  ! pointed" in her husband when he re-  ! turned, that all the glamor seemed  to have faded, and she Celt as if she  were ineeting a stranger.  And a woman 1 had known for years,  a fine, unselfish wife and mother, was  living in purgatory because she refused to divorce her husband in- order  that he might marry the English girl  who had made him forget the woman  who had shared liis life for twenty  years.  "He is my husband still," Mrs. Hope  said to me, "nothing can change that.

There was little I could do  for him, for he tried to hide his weakness, but I kept what Father used to  call "a stiff upper lip" and I followed  as closely as was tactful our old doctor's advice regarding diet and rest  and amusement.  After Murray Svent back to the office he seemed to improve, but there  were days when I could tell that his  nerves were tense to the breaking point  and nights when neither of us slept and  I had to talk to him and comfort him  as if he were Rupert awakened from |  a bad dream.      And worse even than 1  the  wakeful   nights   were  the   nights ���������  when he would talk in his sleep, some- j  times    shouting    to    his platoon, and j  sometimes    whispering    broken    sen- j  fences that made my blood run cold��������� |  were the awful things he saw the fan- i  tasies of a sick mind, or had he lived i  with such horrors until Nature could  bear the burden no longer?  One thing that, other wives told me  about I never experienced. Murray,  was never impatient nor irritable,  sometimes I used to wish he were.  In so far as he could control himself  ho was his old self." And that tre-  men.dous will-power is what is going  to pull him through," tho doctor would  tell me. Sometimes he would even  show for a few minutes his old gaiety,  and it was thon that I thanked God  and took courage, So long as he  wanted me all tho time and could still  see tho funny side of things I could  face tho future.  Rupert held back for a day or two  after Murray came home. Very  thoughtfully he would compare him  with tho photograph that had heen  "Daddy" over since he learned'to talk,  nnd I think in his four-year-old heart  ho was a little bit jealous that Murray  took so much of my time.

Even, before I was married I used to  notice   that   some   women   put   their  husbands   first   and   some   their   children, and I used to hope that if I ever  acquired   such   possessions    I   should  be   able   to   divide   myself   with   geometrical   exactness.       I   think   I   succeeded;  at any rate,    neither    Murray  nor the babies seemed to have a grievance.       And  In  the    light     of    after  events,     I     have     nothing  to  regret.  We might, I suppose, have saved the  money we spent on amusements, but  in that case we should have-had fewer  pictures in our memory gallery. -   And  we had a great deal of company, our  old   friends,   and  men  whom   Murray  had    known    overseas.      For   though  there were times when I wanted nothing  so much as to  have Murray and  the   twins   to  myself   I   had  resolved  "that our home must be "Open House,"  in the good old-fashioned way.

The child rapidly loses -'.fleshyMs soon  reduced to languor and prostration,  and in a great many cases death ensues.

President  Beatty, of  the   C.P.R.,   Has  Always   Been   Backer of This  Country  President Beatty's important duties  keep  him so busily engaged in Montreal that "Western  Canada   gets  few  opportunities   of   meeting  him.       His  occasional statements on, questions of  public consequence and his infrequent  appearances  before  the public   allow  the western people^their sole glimpse  of those  qualities  which induced the  Board of the Canadian Pacific "Railway  Company to elect him to that corporation's highest executiye position.  Mr. Beatty's public utterances are  distinguished by three principal characteristics. They are lucid. They  are* restrained. They are courageous.  The latter quality marked the speech  he  delivered  while in London during  Big Fortunes From Small Inventions  Many big fortunes have come from  small inventions. For instance, a  man-made a can with a seam just  below the top. When the can was  to "Be opened it was only necessary to  strike the top and it came off.

U.      1I0U  president arrived in London when a  section of the British press was scolding and threatening Canada for its action in relation to the G-rand Trunk.  With the merits of that dispute Mr.  Beatty did not mix. J-Iowever, he  boldly intimated to the British public  that If Canada meant as much to the  British Empire as the British Empire  meant to Canada the threats of withdrawal of British capital from this Dominion would"not be continued.  The second characteristic, restraint,  was finely* exemplified in President  Beatty's recent slatement in reply to  the Montreal Star's attack upon tho  Canadian Pacific in relation to the settling'of that railroad's lauds. Hla  answer to that was an overwhelming  array of facts and statistics, and a  reason eil, quiet and most ablo defence  of the railroad company's past actions  and present position.  The first, and most valuable distinction u I Inching to Mr. Beatty's public  statements, whether in tho press or  on the platform, llcidlty.

Are you nervous? Is your sleep  disturbed? Do you wake up in the  morning feeling as tired as when you  went to bed? Is jrour appetite7poor,  your digestion weak, and do you have  pains after eating?  If you have any of these symptoms  you need a-tonic, and In the realm of  medicine there is no better tonic than  Dr. Williams Pink Pills, which enrich  the blood, restore shattered nerves  and bring the glow of health to pale  cheeks. The value of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills is shown by the case of Mr.  Horace Cuphill, Woodward's Cove,.  N.B., who says:���������"The first indication  that my general health was not good  was a shortne3s of breath after the  least exertion. Then, my appetite  began to fall, and after eating it seemed as if there was a lump in my stomach. I grew so weak that I could not  walk a hundred yards Without resting;  Then I was taken with a numbness  all over my body and was in a sad  plight. I was under a doctor's care,  but as I was not getting better, I decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Tho first few boxes did not seem to  help me but my wife urged me to continue their use and I got four boxes  more. Before these were gone I  could eat a fair meal, the numbness  was leaving me and ~I was feeling  much better in every way. I took the  pills for a while longer, and felt that  I was again a well man. I still take  the pills occasionally, but have had  no return of the old trouble."  you can get those pills from any  medicine dealer or by mail at 50 cents  a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  Arctic Terns Make Long Trip  Probably Arctic terns, which are -a  kind of sea gull, make the longest annual trips of any "bird.

It is interesting to  note that the climate -of Alaska is  similar to that of Patagonia, which  shows that birds do not seek a better  climate.
