The Staples, Patnasas & Palmer sawmill at Goat River  Crossing   will   be   .  sawing ties about the 10th: as the mill  is rapidly nearing completion of erec-   .  tion. The tiros have also built a bridge  across Goat River that will very materially shorten their haul to the Paulson siding.

With Mrs. Richardson  the little girl  had gone to that city  about three months ago  for   medical  treatment and after  successfully   undergoing an operation was taken with  diptheria about a month ago, the case  being so serious that  her father   was  summoned to her bedside.   Following  this she was taken with measles and  immediately after that pneumonia developed, word   coming    on    Mondwy  that the worst might be looked for,  the end coming on New Year's night.  The remains were buried in Vancouver  on Wednesday.

And when I cojild no longer hear  the- rattle of the wagon I knew that I  was really "on my own."  The day promised to be hot, but as  there was a pleasant breeze I made a  fire and heated water and then proceeded to wash evrything washable  that I could find, using Mr. Herring-  ten's last cake of soap in the process.  I had asked Murray to bring me a tin  of stove polish from the village but I  had not thought of soap and, as Nicolas pointed out, "We can't telephone  here, can we-?"  After the house came the garden.  I found good potatoes, carrots, onions,  turnips, a few jyeets, beans in the halfway stage between green and ripe,  "Country    Gentleman"    corn    almost  ready   ������<*x~   xzao,   onrl   o-������>������^o->>*'?ltll|5������i-JDJeS'T  lected-looking cabbages and cauliflowers. Evidently Mr. Herrington  believed in doing himself well.  The soil, even to my amateur eyes,  seemed the sort in which anything  would grow, and I determined that the  next spring would see a greatly en~  larged and improved garden. When  I could grow tomatoes and celery and  cucumbers successfully in a city backyard there seemed no reason why I  should not have even better luck with  them in such rich new soil. And I  would try raspberries and red and  black currants, and perhaps some  Everbearing strawberries.  We were on our way to explore the  stable  when   we  heard  the   sound  of j  wheels, a rhythmic runjble and click |  that   was   not   a  wagon,   I   was   sure, t  The twins were curious and I���������I hate j  to  confess  it���������rather  nervous.      But  the source oi the noise soon declared  itself, and proved to be nothing more  fearsome    than   Jim   Cameron   come  with his binder to cut the wheat.  Jim was a pleasant-looking young  fellow, sunburned and freckled in accordance  with his  red   hair,  and  the  er .we scarcely knew what we would  do in the way of farming.  "Well, I don't want' to butt in," Jim  replied, "but if there is anything I can  do for you I hope you will let me  know. A person often needs a bit of  advice on a new job and Bob and I are  old hands at farming."  "There is one thing- I want as soon  as possible," I said. "Do you know  where I can get a good milk cow, or  maybe two of them?"  "And some chickens and some, pigs,"  broke in Nicolas, who had been silent  for an unusually long while. "One of  the cows is for me and one is for Rupert, Cousin Margaret said so. "And  I am going to feed the chickens, but  I don't like pigs."  "If you'll come to visit me you'll see  lots of cows and pigs," Jim promised.  Then, to me, he explained that while  he had a fairly large herd of cattle he  had raised them all for beef, but that  he thought we might get milk cows at  a Galician settlement twelve miles  east, or perhaps from, one of the settlers nearer home. The price he  mentioned as likely to be asked was  less than I had expected vto pay, the  reason, he said, being that feed was  scarce and that people were willing to  sell cheaply for cash 3n order 'to meet  their liabilities.  "You'll find, Mrs. Aylwin," he  said  seriously, "that most of" us in this district are just holding on.      The land  is good, and a man who hasn't too big  a proportion, of wood on his quarter  can do fairly well, especially if he has  some, livestock and does not have to  depend altogether on his crop.      Bob  and I have about equal parts of timber, and hay-land and open prairie, and  even we have to stretch pretty hard to  make ends met.      The people in the  bush are worse off, it is no joke to  clear that sort of land and what you  can  get for wood just now does not  more   than  pay   for   your  time.       Of  course anyone who can stick it out for  a   few ^years   will be on Easy Street.  The sell can't be beaten and we are  close to the best market in the West.  I  expect to  live  long  enough  to  see  this district as prosperous as old Ontario.       But  in  the   meantime   you'll  find that a little cash goes a long way,  His explanation gave me something  new  to  think about.      The  pioneers,  I told myself, were not all dead.    With  sudden insight I saw our situation in  a new light.      We had come amongst  these people under circumstances very  different from their own, and with no  idea of making a permanent home nor  of taking a share of the hardships. We  were "roughing it" only for the sake  of Murray's health, I had always reminded  myself.       Herrington's   Hope  was    to    be _��������� only an incident, in our  lives, a humorous one, if possible, but  at any rate merely an incident.     And  I had rather prided    myself    on    my  courage;  it seemed quite a big thing  .fo&-jfj^*&b������i������s������ -'-to  <snmo-. to. ..eaielv a. life*^*-  for Infe sake of her husband.    But now  I realized that I had been pitying myself rather unnecessarily.      After ail,  what was  I. that . I should  claim the  martyrs'  crown  for    doing    willingly  what other women did of necessity?  I  gave  myself a proper lecture,  and  ���������felt the better for it.      Homesickness,  I concluded, was    justifiable,    but    it  must be hidden.     And if   I   were   to  hold up my head among my neighbors  I must avoid as the plague all appearance of superiority or discontent.  The children and I had a very good  dinner ready when Murray and Teddy  arrived. They brought with them the  tin of stove polish, but only half our  furniture, as there was too much to  be taken in" one load. The rest was  under cover at the station, and we decided that it must remain there for  two or three days, as Murray was so  tired that he frightened me.  My men-folk, were, I told them, very  intelligent. They had brought in the  first load the things we needed most,  and had left the piano, the bookcase  and the chairs at Spruce Creek.  We did not do much in the way of  WHlt* *MHie  tlgfi&S  A8>  pac  feet  y��������� lb tii\  if.  roll your  otfrv,  ask lor  fflffilEOf  jForas- wm  {hxQQts. fabel)  sea-blue eves whose twinkle rather be- j unpacking that night,    for    after    wo  ! had exchanged gossip we were all  ready for bed. But the next morning  wo set to work and soon had everything In place.

The  stove was the one great eyesore.  Teddy used almost the whole tin of  polish on it, and on himself, but even  at that it spoiled my pretty room. A  stove is a stove, be it ever so black,  but we knew- that we would have to  put up with it until after harvest,  when Mr. Gagnon had promised to help  Murray build a kitchen.  The house settled, we turned our attention to the main out-of-doors. -For  one who was a "handy matt" BSr. Herrington must have had some strange  lapses. The water, which was good  and quite soft, had to be carried, pailful by pailful, from the spring. And  there was no place where food could  be kept cool in the summer and warm  in the winter. There was a rainwater barrel on a raised platform near  tho doorway, and. though the water  smelled strongly of gasoline I was  glad to have it. It was Rupert who  discovered the dug-out root cellar in  the bank of tho Creek near the spring,  and though it was inconvenient we  kept our perishable foodstuffs there  until cooler weather came.  Tho stable, like the house, was well  built and roomy. There was plenty  of spaco for tho two cows we meant  to got, and tho low end under the sloping roof would do for the hens.

I was vory ignorant of all such mat-  torn, but T planned to spend tho long  winter ovoninga in tho close perusal  of farm journals, bo as to bo prepared  for tho conduct of what Teddy called  my "stock farm" in tho spring.

Ours was surely beginners' luck.  Carrie proved to be a jewel, even If  she was only a near-Holstein. She  was, the Fen wicks told me, a late cow.  And that mean, as I learned by looking  wise and saying nothing, that the calf  which we had not bought was destined to be very young veal in the fall,  and that Carrie would give rnilk until  Spring.  "There's no Bense in getting a second cow now" said Jina, "she'd just  "eat her head off all winter so you'd  better let someone else feed her.  About the end of March you'll be able  to get one with a new calf, and there  is no use laying out your money before  you have to. Of course you might get  one cheaper during the winter, for if  you look around you'll likely find  someone who'd rather have cash than  a cow that must be fed."  "That would seem rather like taking advantage of our neighbors,  wouldn't it?" I asked Murray, after I  had repeated Jim's advice to him. ' .;v:  "I'm afraid you are not going to find  this an Idyllic life/' was Murray's reply. "So far as I can judge, the thing  that Is hampering the farmers hero Is  a lack of ready money.

"For three years .1 had rheumatism
so bad in my right hip and foot that

"My case was so stubborn, that it
took a long, hard pull, but Tanlac finally brought me around in fine shape.
- It gave me a fine appetite and such
complete relief from the rheumatism
that I put my crutches aside and Went

Deplores Pessimistic Outlook
Everyone Should  Help in .Reconstruction of World Says Rev.  Henry
'���'   .,;..."' . van  Dyke
The appearance of so many pessimistic books of late was deplored
by the Rev. Dr. Henry van Dyke in
a sermon in the Park Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York, of which his
only son, the Rev. Tertius van Dyke,
is the pastor. "When Elijah went
into the cave he had' a bad case ot
pessimism," declared Dr. van . Dyke.
'"'He thought all the world was wrong,
going to the bad, and that he only was
faithful to God and to duty. He attempted to prove this by" having nothing more to do with the world and isolating himself in a cave. There are
many men today affected by this form
of self-righteous pessimism. They
tell us that the 'great Nordic race*, is
vanishing, that 'the revolt against civilization is sure to succeed; that 'Europe is hopeless,' and therefore America shduld keep out of it, and so on.
What is this but going into the cave?
The stilly small voice of God calls us
to come out, to bear a hand in the
struggle for right, to do our duty and
trust God for victoi-y.

It did not go so. far as to  secure any degree    of    disarmament,  nor would it have preventeds as Secretary Hughes emphasized in his letter  of refusal to sign, the various powers  from supplying each other with arms.  Its main   effect,   like  that  of all  the  other Paris treaties, would have been  to aid the victorious powers in preserving    their    domains.      Near    th.3  main manufacturing plant of the biggest French munition firm is a luxurious clubhouse, erected for the entertainment of customers.      Among the  trophies of the main entrance hall are  framed  photographs of half the prewar sovereigns of Europe, with their  retinues, who had come there to purchase artillery and other war implements.      It is a gruesome sight.  In the meantime the whole subject  of traffic in arms needs  the  earnest  s^udy of all friends of peace.      Under  what circumstances  is  the sale of a  cannon to be permitted,    a    machine  gun,  a rifle, a revolver? :    To reach  unanimity   on   these   subjects   is   not  easy.      So 'much depends on the point  of view.      The advertisements of th'e  revolver manufacturers, for instance,  always picture the goods offered  for  sale as being used in the defence of  peaceful., homes.       They   never   hint  peaceful homes. They never hint that  the weapons recommended also meet  the requirements of the housebreaker  and   marauder.       The   international  situation "is similar.      Appropriations  for ai-maments are always asked for in  the name of peace, for defensive purposes.     And.    yet    tlie're    are    wars.  Likewise, it will be. urged that if war  implements are not to be bought, how  ban oppressed races ever hope to gain  independence?     Modern arms cannot  be madia except by elaborate machinery, but they can easily be "smuggled.  ��������� The obverse side of the shield Is the  secret aid given by some powers  to  the rebellious subjects of another power.      Though perhaps  justifiable under certain circumstances, the motive  is seldom an altruistic one.     More often   private   manufacturing concerns  make large profits    from    smuggling  arms   and   thereby    Incito     disorder.  Sometimes  the sale of- munitions of  war is a part of an official though perhaps secret political    programme,   la  which citso only a general treaty providing for a limitation of armaments  can bo effective.     In 1918, men close  to President Wilson stressed tho desir  ability of making munitions a Government monopoly *>o as to remove profit  hunger aa an incentive of war.      If  that were douo, at least it would bo  tiaaier  lo hold  governments rcopaiii-  Ible for the uses to which their products    are    put,���������Christum    Science  Monitor.
