is it..happened, we did not hear of
another suitable cow at the time, so I
put the remainder of Cousin Margaret's gift in the bank. I have omitted to say that as soon as it was decided that we should go to Herring-
tori's Hope she wrote me a long letter,
full of good advice, and enclosed a
cheque for the proceeds of the sale oi-|
times the silence pressed on me like a
physical burden, and at night I seemed actually to feel the thick darkness
that I afterwards learned'to love. Like
poor old Sir John babbling of green
fields I longed for Portage Avenue on
a Saturday night, for. the dome of the
Capitol outlined against the sky, lor
the never-failing surprise of the twin
towers of ,the Cathedral as one sees
them through the buildings and
tracks and bridges of the wholesale
district, fqrthe .changing faces of the
crowd,?; eyen for ?tne noise :o�� street
cars and autombhiles.j
I dp hot mean that I'was constantly
unhappy,, nor .do I think that even Murray realized what the tearing up of all
myjoots meant to me. (My homesickness was of the" suBtle sort that wakes
with one in the morning, that can be
For it was soon evident that pur experiment, which, had sometimes seemed so wild a venture, ,was, already
proving itself a success in its most important aspect. Murray, except when
he fussed about his wife's having to do
something that lie thought, was top
hard or too unpleasant for her, was
to all appearances perfectly happy,
"When Dr. Sutherland first, advised
our leaving'the city I had arsked Murray if he djd not fear the loneliness of
country life. -
��� "Not for. my self," he answered without hesitation. "If you can stand it I
can., ^ou see, Margaret Anne,, when
a fellow has been under someone's eye
day and night for years, as I have
been, the prospect oC being absolutely-
free, with no one near but the family,
is pretty near Heaven. And I've had
noise enough to last me all my life,
thank you."     ~.
.Murray sp seldom spoke of his experiences as a prisoner that. I had not
realized before how deeply the feeling that he was-being watched had bitten into his consciousness. I wondered if perhaps isolation would (be bad
rather than good for him, but the doctor was so sure that could- his physical
condition be improved his nerves
would cure_ themselves, and Murray
so eager to follPw the doctor's advice,
that I did not mention the matter
again. ' .
'It-was soon proved that I had worried unnecessarily. I do not mean
that Murray miraculously became
gfeain the man he had been, and perhaps he will never lose the scars that
are not mentioned in his discharge
papers. But I could see that he was
gradually growing- stronger, and that
the stillness and the-loneliness, to
which I found it hard to adjust my.seli!,
were iust what his weakened body and
tortured nerves required. Though
he never acquired an appetite to
match Jim Cameron's he soon began
to gain in weight. And almost from
the first he slept better than he had
since his return; even when he had
worked too hard his weariness seemed
to be of a wholesome bodily sort, and
he would wake in the morning with a
tiny reserve of energy, Instead of under the shadow of a dream.
The children, too, were happy as a
rule. They had always been accustomed to play together and Herring-
ton's Hepe afforded many opportunities fori new and fascinating pursuits.
Once In a while Nicolas gave evidence of missing her old environment.
I remember very plainly   one    rainy
there should'-ibe an occasional one.
But it was: Jiin '���': Cameron who' (really
set%hervnaind: atrest. - "Belief- in:"her;
mother's infallibility was strong Iff
Nicolas, but she had the truly feminine faith in a matfs superior knowledge. And so when "Mr. Jim Cameron" told her, that lie had never seen a
wolf oa.her Daddy's farm slie was -satisfied, and as eager as the rest of us
to explore the corner of the homestead
that lay across life creek. We would
have to wait until the eai-ly winter
brought ice strong enough to carry us,
for, though narrow, the creek was
fairly deep and I, with the prairie-born
dread of water,;did not take kindly to
the thought of a raft or a felled tree.
When winter came, Murray promised
us, we would build a foot-bridge.
^-As^ I have said, we saw little of our
neighbors for the first month: The
Cameron brothers were the exceptien,
and they were a (host in themselves.
Bob proved to be older, quieter and not
so red-haired as Jim, - but he was
equally friendly and equally appreciative of niy cooking. He had been
overseas with the 10th Battalion, and
he and Murray quickly reached -the
"do you remember" stage and soon
became rather more than mere acquaintances.
s. ���rBob 3s a line fellow I'll admit,
steady and dependable and thoughtfuL
But I shall always have a soft spot in
my heart for the. more exuberant .Jinc?;
my first friend. Prom the beginning
he attached himself to me and the
twins, and Murray has always, laughed at his devotion; But I do not mind
being laughed at, the lad's heart is inflammable in reality_as his hair is in
appearance, hut he lias .��� one of the
niost cheerful temperaments I have
ever known; and- he will do anything
for-a person he likes. ..We" soon
learned that Jim had Ms serious side
too, and when''we asked his opinion
on anything we thought of doing, he
was as matter-of-fact as Bod, and his
advice always proved to be worth following.
We were indeed fortunate te have
such friends, and I found ways in
which to repay a part, of their kindness. Since as boys of sixteen and
eighteen they had come West they
had "bached", and their appreciation
of a woman's*' home-making ability
was truly pathetic- They' seemed to
think that the darning of a three-cornered tear In a Sunday suit, or the gift

Both Cousin Margaret and Mr.
Campbell were very much interested
in our venture and though Murray was
somewhat backward about accepting
so large a gift I convinced him that it
was not a case for false pride. The
Campbells were in more than comfort
able circumstances, and they were
very.fond of the twins.

But the more the Canadian farmer studies the  situation, the more convinced he is. that he cannot individually, or even col-  Iccively control "the price of wheat. On the contrary, experience teaches  thai world conditions are the determining factor; and anything the.Canadian  people may do can only affect the price to-a comparatively small extent.  In a recent address at Iteglna, Premier Imnning of Saskatchewan discussed this aspect of tho problem confronting-"Western. Canada,, at the present  time. He pointed out that Ihe 750,000 people in Saskatchewan were producing food enough to feed 30,000,000 people, and in this preseaat year the production will even exceed that amount.
