Mill men,  however, are not worrying over the  stow trend of trade, as they are con  fident that when the wheat crop  money is finally available to the farmer there will be a very healthy demand  at prairie points.  Returns being made to the district  forester's office indicate that the 1923  cut of timber of every class will bis  approximately 270 million feet b.m.  1923 has seen one of the biggest cuts of  railway ties in the history of East  Kootenay, the year's output totalling  almost 800,000. Too, these same **���������������  turns also show that the year just  closing haa seen more meB> employed  by the lumber industry than was the  case in 182& _   .  -  Off 'the year's ontpptl< the JX~Vt.\%,  plants at Bull River and.Xabk and tho  fine new mill of the E.C; Spruce Company at Lumberton account for 25 per  cent, of the total production. aAt present the promise is for an equally satisfactory year in 1924.  Out of a total of some 48 sawmilfs in  Bast Kootenay but seven are operating at present, and four of these are]  portable outfits���������three    of   them  able timber was practically nil, but in  $he worst blaze off the year���������near  Michel���������damage was done to young  timber in a blaze that swept through  a* stretch of timber belonging to the  C.N.P. Coal Company. The standing  timber affected will all be manufactured: before any loss can be sustained  from any scorching it got.  Piles directly due to carelessness  were reduced to 29, as compared witfc ���������  over 100 last year. 13 of these were  absolutely traced to carelessness with  cigarette and cigar stubs and matches*  24 blazes were the result of unextinguished camp fires, and almost without  Soldier  rial  exception, these were set by East  Kootenay people-���������the tourist traffic  heing responsible for very few of them.  Several new tourist camp sites were  opened on the road between Cran-  t> -o������k and Windermere, and Mr.  Moore states that the best indication  that the tourist camp grounds are appreciated is revealed in letters sent to  the district forester**s office by a moists  who have used them on their travels.  Mrs. Cleland of Proctor -was a visitor here a few days last week with her  daughter, at the C.P.R. Hotel.

Misses  Eva and Gladys'Webster made the  roundup and certainly did a creditable  day's work.  Members of the Ladies* Guild of  Christ Church had a very busy and  profitable afternoon of it at their annual bazxar, which included the serving  of refreshments cafeteria style, in the  Parish Hall on Fridar.  The hall presented, a decidedly attractive appearance, an avenue of  evergreen trees extending down the  centre, with the several booths on  either side, and the tea room at the  end. The hooths were attractively  done in mauve and pink���������lattice work  in these colors separating them,- whilst  a floral effect in the same tints added  much to the appearance of the stall  fronts.  The tea room was thronged all afternoon and was in charge of Mrs. Angus  Cameron, Mrs. M. Young, Mrs. Spratt,  Mrs. Hayes and Mrs. Crcsthwait, the  intake in this department alone being  over $30. Mrs. Garland and Miss  Vivanne Moots had charge of the  candy booth, the day's intake totalling  $25, which included a bean guessing  contest for a doll, -which was won by  Miss Vera Lister.  There was a great demand for the  home cooking, which was taken charge  of by Mrs. Hilton and Mrs. Varley, the-.  supply of canned goods and pastry of  all sorts being too small to meet the  demand.  ���������     ���������������'���������*.*���������  But very few articles were left at  the close in.. the fancy work booth,  which was taken charge of by Mre.

British Empire Preferences
Tlie ties that hold the Britisii Empire together, or rather the lack oi' any
hard and fast constitutional obligations, are a source of constant worry to
some people and a few newspaper and magazine writers seem to labor under
a delusion that to them lias been entrusted the task o�� saving the Empire from
speedy dissolution.
| One group advocates the creation of an Empire Parliament, with Ministers
of "the Overseas Dominions resident in London, a common foreign policy, and
a definite scheme of Empire defence, naval and military. in other words,
this group stands for a greater degree of centralization. Unless this is attained, we are told the Empire must inevitably go to pieces.
Opposed to this policy, certain other publicists seem to suffer from a
continual nightmare that the liberties and autonomous powers of the Dominions are really in danger and that a serious effort is being made to place the
far-flung portions of the Empire abjectly under the thumb of Downing Street.
The truth is, of course, that both these groups are unnecessarily alarming themselves, while at the same time wasting valuable time and good paper
and ink in endeavoring to arouse the people over something which is not
worrying them in the slightest.
The British Empire is, after all, a mother country with a healthy family
of grown up sons. While these sons were very little chaps, mother looked
after them and directed their more important affairs for them. But as the
boys' grew up -they were gradually given larger liberty of decision and action
for themselves. That is, the Empire has evolved and continues to evolve in
exactly the same way as the average family. Any father or mother deserving of the name is proud and happy to see tlie children grow up, develop
character, become self-reliant, independent and prosperous.
In the family circie it is not demanded that as the children grow up" they
shall sign some formal document declaring their love and loyalty to father
and mother and binding themselves to discharge certain duties towards them
and accept certain responsibilities on their behalf. .
That love and loyalty exists, and that is all there is to it. No matter
how the children,.may grow up, nor how fai^. scattered around the world they
may be, and irrespective of the individual interests which may be developed
by each, there yet remains a common bond which remains strong and unbreakable. In principle their chief interests are one, and each and all can
rely on the others. What benefits one indirectly benefits all, although not
necessarily to the same extent, and loss to one indirectly and adversely
affects all.
The same principle holds good in the case- of. the Britisii Empire. The
analogy is perfect. Australia may be vitally interested In something which
only remotely, if at all, affects Canada. But if Australia in working out that
particular problem gains in strength and becomes -more contented and prosperous, it makes for Canada's gain indirectly. If anyone doubts this, let
him recall what tlio strength of each of the Dominions meant to the others
in the Great War, when, combined, they placed over one million, soldiers in
the field, ancl, as Lloyd George declared at Ottawa the other day, had it not
heen so the history of .the world, would have to be re-written.
There may be times and questions where the interests of various parts of
1he Empire may come into conflict, just, as occasions arise when the interests
nf -jniU-.-idual members of a family do not parallel each other but sharply
divert. This would happen just the same if each was an independent,
!*'fna'!vi?n niit ion. But because all are members of one family, a greater de-
gLV'' of consiil'.���ration for each other is shown. Tliere is a willingness to com-
prumise. to adopt, a mutual policy of give and take, which in the end benefits
all.   . . , -
Then- are. howr-ver, many way in which ihe mother country and each of
th-' Porn in ions can din-dlv assist the others, without involving them in any
form ��-������' c.:-nti-a!iz;.'d government or control, which might at times prove irlc-

leave Eriedricllshafen early in November for her trans-Atlantic, voyage to
her future "home at Lakehurst, N.J. A
station ship will be placed in mid-

Weather Bureau, Shipping Board and
other government agencies are preparing to co-operate in furnishing the latest ^meteorological data.: ,.���'-���; j
, The planned route is across Southern Prance, thence to the Azores, to
the southern Up of Bermuda and north
to destination. The route covers
4,500 nautical miles, or a distance
nearly one-third greater than the "airline" across England, Newfoundland
and Nova Scotia, ������ The flight is to be
made "without, intermediate stop." At
her average "gait" the ZR-3 is expected to take 140 hours for her
homeward trip.
The German ship was bviilt as a
commercial craft. Provision has been
made for twenty passengers on long
flights, or thirty on short voyages.

Nearly five hundred saw and shingle
mills in British Columbia are producing annually approximately three and
a half billion feet of lumber ancl about
the same number of shingles. This
year the lumber production of the
province is estimated to be worth
$85,000,000, <*, and a survey of world
markets gives promise of a steady increase in the next decade.

says:���"My baby was a great sufferer
from colic and cried continually. I
began giving him Baby's Own Tablets

At the* immense new central transmitting  station in Berlin,  it was imperative that the    sending    operators
should   know  the   exact  time- in  any
other part of the world at a given moment.     Some form of clock was found
necessary, that would indicate day and
night, and simultaneously indicate the

At  the very centre of the globe there may  be millions ot* tons of gold and silver  and    platinum    and    the other heavy  metals.  This is not mere phantastic speculation, but sober deduction  from the  most critical investigation ever made  in the chemistry of the earth's crust  ������������������an    investigation   conducted by the  acknowledged; world authority on thia  subject, Dr, Henry-S. Washington, of  the Carnegie Institution of Washington, D.C.  Dr. Washington, studying over 5,000  trustworthy chemical analysis of the  crust of the earth, found that the elements common in the crust are exclusively those of lighter weight. The  heavier, elements o>ccur only in the  most minute  proportions.

It is this pull of the  heavenly bodies that.makes the tides  stronger in the ocean. Now the pull  is just as strong, or stronger, on the  land. Why, then, are there not tidal  waves in the solid ground as there  are in the sea? Obviously, just be-  cause it is solid���������because the land is  too firm and rigid to yield to the tidal  pull the way the water does.  Lord Kelvin figured out in tons  the amount of these tidal pulls on the  land. They were stupendous; many  times larger than any possible resisting strength of the 50 or  60-mile  Tidal Flow Of" U.

Nearly  the  entire  aggregate  of American settlers is  to j  be   found   i$   the   western  provinces,  where they have either liomesteaded or  purchased land.      Between the years  1S97   and  1919   some   27   per  cent,  of  United States settlers coming to Western    Canada    made    application    for  homesteads, as against 18 per cent, of  British   nationality,   and   when   it   is  considered that more Americans buy  , improved farms than newcomers from  * any other country, the extent to which  they are developing Canadian, agriculv  turaltural lands  may  be appreciated.  Since the government threw open its  Crown' lands and initiated its homestead   policy,   about  100,000,000   acres j  have been settled, and United States j  J citizens   have   accounted   for   30   per  cent,  of   such  settlement,  as  against  20 per cent, of filings on the part of  settlers from the British Isles.  Since the war, owing to the disturbance in economic conditions, no less'  than to  Canada's immigration policy,  the flow from the United States has  to some extent fallen off.     The movement was in the ascendent when the  war  -broke    out;  in 1913, the record  year, some 139,009 American citizens  crossed  the  border.      After the  war  the average contribution    was    about  50,000 per annum until 1922, when only  some   24,000  arrived.    The Republic's  donation   is   still   of   the   same   high  ���������quality,  however,  anil  almost  purely  agricultural.      Though the  extent  ot  homestead land is rapidly diminishing,  American settlers come    to    Canada  with  ample  funds  to  purchase large  acreages.      In the not inconsiderable  total   of   7,349   homestead   filings   in  1922, Americans took second place.  A further aspect of this United  States immigration tide which makes  it so desirable from Canada's point of  view is the "amount of wealth it carries with it. Most United States Immigrants aro farmers who have sold  out high-priced lands with the intention of either homesteading or purchasing low-priced lands of large extent In Canada, and who arrive furnished wltn considerable funds and  fully equipped to initiate their new enterprises immediately  To Retain  British  Workers  Efforts are being made at Calgary  and at other western points to "retain  as many as possible    of    the    Britisii  workers who came over to help harvest  the   1923   crop.      However  only  those will be kept for whom, there is  work or who can be helped to settle  on. the land.      The newcomers are of  an. unusually high type and It is believed that they will  make  the very  best kind of settlers.  O I L S  Minard's kills the inflammation, . disinfects  and relieves.

Citizenship"  given by Norman Mwre of Cranbrook, in the schodllioufse at Canyon City on Friday nigfrL The  lecturer appeared under- the auspices of the Ladies' Community  Club, and was greeted' with a  splendid, turnout.  Preceding- the lecture there was  a vocal solo by W. J. Truscott, the  ladies' chorus, and the three piece  orchestra composed of Miss Muriel  Knott and T. R. Mawson, violins,  and Mr. Kolthammer, piano, with  a well rendered overture by Mrs.  Pochin to open proceedings. The  chair was taken by C F. Hayes of  Creston, who also briefly intro?  duced the  speaker of  the evening,,  Mr. Moore devotes the first teia  minutes of Jiis lecture to the school  children, opening with the timely  observation, "You are the men and  women of the future; yours is tl.e  brain and the. brawn that must  solve the  problems   and . complete  Make your hens produce   j  at least 200 eggs a year ���������-1  fey giving them j  Karswooi  Poultry  Spice  Fanciers are agreed that  it is  the surest egg-producer on the market.  1-Poundpackage, SOc  Half-pound package, 2Sc  Stock will be here in a few  days.

His belief is that in the humble homes  dwell future premiers, statesmen,.  thinkers, empire builders. Great  opportunities beckon, but the future  depends on the use that is made of  today. "Greatness," the lecturer  pointed out, "consists in doing some  great deed witli little means. . . . .  He who can give to Creston Valley  better transportation, better homes,  better schools, more of happiness,  more of God; he who can be a  blessing to the community in which  he lives today will be great anywhere.*' Mr. Moore has an apt  closing to his talk to the boys and  girls in the words of Cardinal Gibbons. "Expect great things of Canada, expect great things of yourself."  Mr. Moore introduces his address  proper with the observation, "Citi  zenship is one of the biggest words  in our language; you can take all  the empires that have rose and fell,  and cover them with that one  word." The decay of citizenship  had made Israel the prey of all the  nations of the east.  After pointing out that this is a  time of clear thinking and plain  talking, the lecturer asures that  C-tnada stands at the threshold of  better things if we are but big  enough to look back over the past  and admit the mistakes we have  made, and then set our house in order. That Canada's development  has been a disappointment is made  plain by the speaker who observes  that Canada is older than the  United States; Canada possesses  greater natural wealth, and yet we  h ve only population one twelfth of  that of the republic to the south.  The cause for this is set down to  lack of national unity.  The speaker pleads for ~~ fresh  start in Canada, one of the first  undertakings to engage attention  being the welding of all the racial  elements, of our population into a  united nation conscious and .proud  of our 'mighty heritage. Figures  submitted show that in the last 20  years we have admitted into Canada 372,000 people who could uot  speak English, and in the same  period 800,000 native born Canadi  an 8 became citizens of the United  States. Mr. Moore asserted that  Canada can support 400 million  people, and that our present railroad facilities are ample to take  care of at least 200 million of popufj  lation.  If we would   stop   this   exodus,  which was due  to economic  pressure and  better opportunities, Can-  nHau industry must be   backed by  a spirit of 100 per cent.   Canadian.  As showing how slow  we had been  to promote   Canadian trade  interests Mr.  Moore cited the   fact that  although in 1921   Canada   had   a  surplus of   85   million   bushels   of  wheat our industrial   leaders   had  passed up the opportunity   to  sell  the bulk of this   to   Mexico   at   a  price of $6 a bushel, due to the fact  that no trade agreement existed between thi* country and Mexico.  Mr. Moore in practical fashion  also bold of Canada's tardiness in  developing the lumber trade with  the Orient, which was now the best  customer Por B.C. timber products,  and without whioh hardly a sawmill En the province wonld be operating.

"We can never grow up nationally if  we forget two millions of our fellow  citizens. If they are hot good citizens,the fault is ours.'*  Mr. Moore was both forceful and  eloquent in his demand for a much  broader consideration of our  Quebec Quotiug Edmund Burke's  "You cannot issue an indictment  against a whole people,'* -the lecturer asks, "What have we done to  make three millions of our fellow-  countrymen-feel .that they are coworkers?'' Stated briefly tiie popular attitude has been to make  them feel like aliens; we have taken  the attitude that citizenship to  French Canada is a privilege conferred, not a right crnfessed.  One service alone that should for  all time make us grateful to the  French Canadian was rendered in  1812 when the U. S. was at war  with Britain and then sent emissar  ies to French Canada with the request that they renounce their  allegiance to Britain aud join with  them. This 13 the answer they  gave, "Thi8 is our Canadian home,  and our portion of the British Empire forever.-'*"'  Various other phases of Canadi-  an citizenship -were discussed, including the usual ten-year census  taking which still makes no provision for Canada being recognized  as & separate'and distinct nationality. On this point Mr. Mooee remarked, We have here in Canada a  situation that, I venture to say. is  with out a paralell in the world's  history; we have a population of  8,500,000 people, boasting a demo  era tic government, and yet there is  not a Canadian citizen."  Mr. Moore's, peroration was em  inently fitting.,- "That is the call.  A call to united effort, sympathy  and understanding. And so I appeal from those who have sought  our shores" with their unbounded  opportunity, to those who, like ray-  self know no other land, and I say,  remembering the Canadian's states  man's prophetic phrase, that the  twentieth century is Canada'a Let  us work, together; this ia your land  and my land, Let us strive to the  end that we may build a glorious  Canada, a Canada united, prosperous and loving; from the Atlantic to  the Pacific and from the 49th par-  alell of latitude to the frigid zone.

The boys were  like Teddy,  L'ond oi" posing as experienced 'and  somewhat  dissipated  men  of the world, but really only growing  children under it all.      And  the girls  were   "good   sports/'   amazingly   self-*  possessed,      and   " always      effective,  whether they were pretty or not. \  "Am I so old, or just old-fashion- ;  ed?" I asked Murray one night, after ,  our guests had gone. 1  He laughed. ���������      j  "Neither, you are just different," he ;  replied. "it was a lovely war, Mar-  garet-Anne. You and I are ante-bel-'  lum, there is a whole era between us .  and those youngsters; the calendar i  has -nothing to do with it."  I fancy he was right. And perhaps  if'more people felt as Murray does  there would be less criticism of the  present generation. As to Teddy,  the boy was so transparently frank  that we always knew where he was  and what he was doing, almost what  he; was thinking. And I felt certain  that with our home as a sort of anchor  he could n������ v<-r go very far astray. He  had no'.

Teddy's noisy entrance saved the  situation, for"' I felt like weeping on.  Murray's shoulder, and - that would  have been bad for us both.  Teddy had overheard a part of our  conversation, and with his usual iin-  pulsivenes she jumped into the middle  of it.  "Did I hear someone say 'fai-ming?' "  he asked. "Sure we are going farming, every last man of: us. Margaret-  Anne and I had it all planned weeks  ago, while you were making love to  the nurses, didn't we, Sis?"  "Well, hardly planned," I said, in  reply to Murray's look of enquiry, i  told Teddy what the Doctor said, and  he declares that wherever we go he  will go too."  "Sure,  old  man,"   said  Teddy  seriously, ."I've got so. used    to    being    a  family "man while you were away that  I'd rniss the responsibility il! it were  removed���������that is   a nice   touch,  isn't  it?" as Murray smiled faintly.

Murray was almost himself again,  and the more we talked of leaving the  city for a time the more the Doctor's  advice appealed tb us. Dr". Sutherland had told us frankly that Murray  had no organic disease, but that he  was in so weakened a condition that  IC he \v*ere tc^ regain his health he  must change his mode of life.  "You are young," he said, "and two  or three years now may mean twenty  later on.     I do not -want to alarm you  needlessly, but my  candid  opinion Is  that If you were to run up againBt an  active and enterprising T.B. germ just  now your chances would not be worth  much. ,   Mrs. Alywin tells me that she  does  not  care  where  she  lives,   and  those twins, surely need room for expansion, so iE you    take    my    advice  you'll get out as quickly as possible."  Dr. Sutherland  was  right,  it made  little difference  to me where I lived.  But ho had been brought up on a farm,  and I am sure he never s\ispected my  absolute ignorance ol' everything but  city life,     Even Murray was bettor ofC  in   that  respect  than   I,  ho   could   remember when  his father had  been a  country minister, and even afterwards,  when their home was in a small town,'*  they wero always In touch witli rural  conditions.      I hid my doubts ns heat  T. could, glad to see Murray really Infer oh tod    in    tlio    achonYo, and jokod  about rny "tenderfoot" stupidities.  ''You'll havo to teach me everything,'* I told Murray.

"We'll be  lucky IE .we_break even, and we don't  want to worry about meeting payments. Margaret-Anne and I are  simply going on a lengthy camping expedition���������provided we can find the  camp."  And at that time the finding of a  camp seemed to be our greatest problem. Murray's Illness had made a  large hole in our bank account, and  every "prospect" required a larger  first payment than we were able to  make. Had Murray been strong and  experienced we might have taken one  of the farms described as "a going concern," and trusted to luck and labor  and the weather that we would be able  to meet the deferred'payments as they  fell due, But Murray must have  nothing to worry him, and the search  continued.  The days passed quickly and it was  well on Into the summer before we  found what wo wanted.  About ten o'clock one morning Murray telephoned to say that he would  not be home for lunch. Early in the  afternoon he telephoned again to say  that ho was bringing a guest for dinner,, "and," he added, "look your prettiest and feed him well, for I think he  owns our farm."  I shall, always have n soft spot In my  heart for "Dickie" Herrlngton. He  was ono of those awfully pleasant,  hopelessly impractical Englishmen  who laugh their way through lifo and  die fighting. Murray and I both took  to him at once, and by tho time he  had eaten the best dinner I,could cook  he was tolling us his  life  history Jn  that the blanks were not  such a way  hard to fill.  He had gone to France as a private  with the first Territorials. "Didn't  want to get a commission until I was  sure I shouldn't run under fire, you  know," he explained. And he had  only seen a few weeks" service when  a premature bomb explosion left him.  with one eye and three fingers "missing oft! parade."  "I can't imagine yet how the bally  thing went off," he told us. "Of  course I am a fearful ass about machinery, but the instructor we had  that day stammered badly, so T suppose I was rather more stupid than  usual. You see, old Whizz-bang began to say 'D-drd-d,' and I took it for  his U3ual endearing form of address-  imagine my surprise when he told the-  Major afterwards that he had been  ordering me to 'Drop that bomb' for  half a minute before it exploded."
