Having  "**&eveloped  a   cat-like- quickness,     he  might have dodged and let the blow1  slide past; but preferred to take it on  the jaw of iron.      He needed, he felt,  the sting of it to release for the deserved punishment of his detractor all  the   latent   powers   within   his   rangy  Irame.  At once, the hard-knuckled mfll was  on���������a furious battle of males, for this  session, primitive males. Science, it  either of them knew aught but the  rough and tumble tactics of the out-  "ands, was forgot. Blows were exchanged with a rapidity that must  have been beyond the scoring of ringside experts had there been any present. In the States,' thousands" pay  lens' of dollars to see fights that were  bo little like this one as to seem primrose teas. There was .nothing gentle  about it. Not until Karrnack sprawled his length on the rough hoard floor  was" there the slightest breathing:  space, unless you'd call breathing" the  Insucked breaths between, clinched  leeth that sounded more like exhausts  "rom wheezy locomotives.  Seymour stepped back to give the  'actor time and space to rise if fight  it-ill was. left in him*. Great as was  ais provocation, he insisted on fighting fair. That there are no rules Jpr  rough-an-tumble made no difference  to him. He couldn't hit a man who  (���������-'as down.  "Karmack came up with a surprising  show of strengths-his eyes gleaming  dangerously. One of these the ser-%  geant closed with a body-wrecking*  jolt.

That was why the  light of her wondrous eyes had: gone  out for him. Any added hate of his  enemy that might have, grown from  this was^ lost in her statement that  she believed.

At four in the afternoon, Sergeant  Seymour mushed in, tired and worn  from his long errand of mercy. NTKis  he had solved by moving the improvident band to another camp of natives  who were Well supplied with food, the J Qf  usual procedure in a_ country where  it is |ap practicable to niove relief snp-  pllesTn mid-winter.  His first\glance at the features of  the corporal, who turned out to help  him with the dogs, acted as a cocktail  that banished all fatigue. A strange  Mountie in quarters could mean only  excitement of son-e sort and that.was  the most joyous tonic the sergeant  knew.  Scarcely did he wait to peel off his  trail clo>hes, so eager was he to break  the seat. of. the-dispatch bag.

The Scarlet Special  Ten days after the battle between  the sergeant and the factor, the quiet  of Armistice camp was. again upset,  this time)mcst unexjpectedly-by the arr:  rival of-the "scarlet special." A corporal of the' Royal Mounted, breezed  in by dog team over the frozen wastes  from far-away Athabaska, the end of  -rail gateway of the North, where English to some extent gives place to  Cree. N  That he brought"no mail���������beyond a  sealed order bag for Sergeant Se3rmour  ���������showed that the .special's visit was  as sudden as a telegram. But Jie did  carry a late newspaper or;t-wo and several magazines that gave week-by-  -week gists of the world's news Nsince  Armistice last had heard from "Outside," so his unexpected arrival was  more than welcome to the whites in  the camp. ���������  To the disappointment of Corporal  Gaspard Le Blanc, the short, -plump  but doughty French-Canadian who had  made the remarkable trip, Seymour"  was not at the post. The morning  alter the light, si report had reached  the detachment that a band^oC Eskimo  on Skelly Rivei were destitute. With  Constable La' Man- still convalescing  from his accident, the. sergeant had  set out to investigate. His^p*turn  was expected any hour of any day.  As the orders were sealed, the corporal to- open them only when assured  that, something-had happened to the  ranking non-com to whom they >*ATere  addressed, there seeriled nothing to do  but wait.  Factor Karmack was the first to call  at headquarters. He met with a cold  reception from La Marr, who naturally had f-ided with, his superior on  learning of tlio aspersion put upon the  Force by the fur irader's insinuations  in ih(- O'Malley case.

"I told him to go to Mission  House for his news." /-  ���������"Good enough," nodded the O. C.  and. started getting into the uniform  which he wore when at the detachment. In Jiis absence the tunic had  been made fairly presentable, with few-  traces of his clash with the -factor.  "I'm goinp out for a prisoner," he said  at the door.      "You boys sit tight."  Straight across to the store of the  Arctic Trading Company he- stalked,  but to meet with- disappointment. Both  the store and dwelling of Karmack  were locked. Even, the native Interpreter was not to he roused. But the  sergeant remembered what the constable had said abotit going to Mission  House for newspapers. Doubtless, the  factor was there- reading -what had  happened In ths all-alive world since  last report. It would not surprise  him to find the four making a news  feast out ol the unexpected bopn���������-  reading aloud in tiirn every morsel of  type, even to the new advertisements.  He quartered to the house of the Morrows.   '  "Safe home again, Seymour," Luke  [ ing papers brought in by special,'.' explained Seymour...-'"La Marr said he  had sent some over to you and told  KarmaCk to come her^ for the news."  "Why���������but���������" Morrow w?is disturbed to a point of stammering distress.  "The factor was here this morning,  but he had,news of his own.

Growers In Okanagan Valley Look to
Provinces- For Their
Products
(By J. Alex Aikln)
It-is an interesting fact that 25 years
ago, before, the big development, of
Western Canada had*- started, this
Okanagan Valley was regarded as
specially favorable for cattle raising.
Even now by way of recalling that
day and lordly vocation one may see
a, rider well attired in the garb of tlie
cow--puncher well mounted oh* the'
streets of -Vernon. However, one
never hears In this valley what is" so
often said on the prairies that It was
a mistake to survey the laud for settlers. The fertility and adaptability
of the location for fruit growing has
been well proven.. There are- years
like this one when the. amount of
moisture is below the average, but in
such a season the irrigation-arrangements perform great tilings for all favored with the water supply. This
year the reservoirs are getting low but
a share of the crop of.small fruit is
past the danger period and there is
stilly time for "the apple crop to, grow
to average size.- The growers are
wary of a crop of small apples which
means more** cost for picking and
pac,king and, a smaller return.
Men who have been over-the field
and who ar^ possesed 6f reliable voj-
formation,���estimate like 1924 apple
crop at 75 per cent, of last year's. A
100 per cent, crop of Mcintosh Reds
is promised, but the other-*-arieties do
not indicate- so' .large a yield. But
there is still much time for growth
and with'needed rain the crop -may
turn out better than the estimates.
The Okanagan Valley producers'regard" the prairies as their best market, nearest home, and is the one to
which they pay most careful attention.
Application to business and experience
has taught them how to pack and ship
fruit so- that it will reach the consumer Un prime-'condition.-""- It is the
fixed purpose and plan of theprodue-.
ers this-year to reach the consumer
and get attention for the B.C. fruit
when it is to be put on the market by
the medium of The daily and weekly
newspapers. The-re will "also be local
, exhibits, of .the fruit in season to better acquaint "buyers with B.C. products. Moat of this advertising will
be done by the Associated" Growers*
of &tc. Limited, and consequently
their brand on the box or crate will
be a guarantee behind the advertisement; which Is always worth something to the consumer. Basil Stewart, the general manager, Is a keen
Scot, a man .of integrity and of few
words. E. C. Chambers, of Pentieton is. president of the Associated
Growers, and an enterprising grower
In the south of the valley.
The fruit growers are becoming
educated up to the idea of co-operative marketing, for they have learned
by experience that only-by co-operation among growers and through the
agency of aii organization covering the
prairies is It possible to serve the
territory and supply the demand as It
arises.*"* Mixed cart of fruit aro regularly shipped out to points all over the
prairie provinces, an advantage "which
the U.S. shippers will not concede.
"M ost of the growers in the Okanagan Valley nie of British slock, both
English and Scotch,; and anyone who
has tried to lino them up to ansy
scheme orisystcm soon learns It Is no
light task. Therjo must be fair dealing as well as executive capacity, else
the native lndopc*nd6nco and* lovo ot
freedom will assert itsolfi There arc
a Tow Orientals In'tho valley, but they
give attention almost entirely to vegetables and small fruits in which thoj?
excel. They seek to purchase land
on occasion, but arc not encouraged
in this dlrocllon, everi where tho deal
might bo profitable to tn'oiandownor.
The Asaociatec Growers of B.C.,
Limited, comprises, about 70 per-cent.
of tho growers and 80 per cent, of tho
products of the valley. The; association is operated --ii tho pool plan and
was at a disadvantage last season in
not being nb'o to make payments until well along ln the crop year. Tho
Independents on tho other hand usually buy outright what they may handle
for.growers, paying for it either at
time of purchase or on short date.
IC the crop should prove to bo as
good as present prospects and the
market as good as tho present outlook

The prospects for "the Canadian market are favorable, and if wheat goes to
the $1.50 mark and holds for the crop
-movemenrf as is predicted by some
buyers, "that" will overcome the fact
and argument based upon the price
level of farm products as compared
with other commodities. It is quite
-possible also that/there will be a lim-
market   for   Canadian  apples   in
Ited
the United States-
Th�� competition to which B.C.
growers are exposed by U.S. growers
is decidedly keen, and can only be met
and handled^ if Canadian consumers,
especially those on.; the prairies, glvp
the preference to  the  B.C.  fruit.
Seeing that these B.C. people buy a
lot of Canadian, flour and cereals,- meatj
and dairy products from the prairies,
in addition to products of other Canadian industries, it is a fair exchange
to buy excellent fruit in return. They
are our own countrymen, helping to
carry the-national burdens and-responsibilities and - the ' co-operative
hand in the -way of fair exchange is
highly commendable.     * """""""*

Outdoor Prison A Success

Dutch Government Drafts Out Un-
guarded Prisoners io improve
Land
The "outdoor prison" system at
The Hague has -been officially announced a success, and the Dutch Government ha's made arrangements to
extend the idea to various parts of the
country. This decision came after
an .experiment which iias continued
more than a year, and it is reported',
of all the prisoners ..placed on their
honor not to escape, and during which
time they were allowed much freedom, not a single individual abused
the trust. .-
The experiment began when sixty
prisoners were drafted to the town
of Veenhuizen lo convert moorland
into,, cultivated field's, and they showed themselves very much interested
and" industrious as ~well. The men.
were not supervised or guarded, in
7 anyway. The foremanof each gang
was"; however; not a prisoner, but a
workman who had joined voluntarily.

Gold    Spoons    Missing    From " Elysee
Palace After Reception
There was considerable excitement
in the .kitchen at the Elysee Palace
following President Doumergues reception of 500 American advertising"
delegates' and their families recently.
On the complclion of the'Inventory
of the various utensils used at tho
buffet during the brilliant afternoon's
entertainment, a butler, .discovered
that forty-seven gold teaspoons were
missing. These spoons are among
the treasures of the presidential palace and were fei-nught out along with
the rest of France's best gold plate to
do honor to the delegates.
It Is considered possible that some
of tfie delegates wished souvenirs of
their visit to tho president's pajaoe
and chose these valuable pieces of tlie
.-palace':-tea service. A}s.earch of, tlie
whole palace' an_ the domestics failed to supply a'ny other explanation,
particularly as the servants of the
palace are old devoted retainers, carefully chosen and of unimpeachable
honesty.

Radium As Medicine
Brings Good Results
.'.;' .'      ; .       I".   -
Trial at New York Hospital Justifies
Further Research
First use of radium as a medicine,
in the treatment of inoperable ailments of the nose and throat, has occurred at the otolarynglcal clinics of
Beth Israel Hospital, New York, according to a dispatch from that city.
The treatment.covered' cases of tonsil
disease and of goiter, as well as of
cancer, with results sufficient to encourage further research in this direction. ;
Tlie dispatch continues: "The
patients were entirely free from pain
after the third treatment. Then 20
patients were treated, tho.. action of
the radium continuing in all of them
until, the tonsils were completely
atrophied.
"In goiter cases resalts are gratifying, but not decisive as yet. Several
of the goiters show decrease ln size."

miles   of  railway   track,   while   more ���

been fitted up.     Most.things at "Wembley are on a large scale.     A million-
gallon water tank has been built,   a
power station capable    of    supplying
"5gh*t to a township of 100,000 inhabitants' ��s running. _wo  gigantic .gas

and cooking, are installed. The bigger of the two, which has a cubic
capacity of 50,000 ft. an hour, Is over
13 ft. deep and 11 ft. 6 in.-in height.
The:pipes connected to it are 16 in. in
diameter. The smallest watch in the
���world and a wonderful jewel which
changes color like a chameleon are
among the treasures to be seen at the
exhibition. The watch is smaller
than a sixpence and is worth $5,000.
Its thickness is less tlianjthe thickness

Early Annual Meeting *
In deciding-;  to have the  annual
meeting of the agricultural   associ
ation at the  end of the   month, or
early in   November,    the   directors
have struck the right idea.'
In the past, with the annual
gathering in January, it has been
found that with aii the memberships having expired the attendance was' very slim and with few
others than the former office-holders
in attendance no other course was
open but to re elect them from year
to year, and rather than risk
having the fair dropped, the old
guard have been running things
rather longer than most of them
have desired.
With the October annual not-
only will all the exhibitors of this
year be able to - attend and vote
"without having to invest in a 1925
membership, but the earlier get-
together will be at a time when e\\
the mistakes 'of this year will be
fresh in people's minds and the
needed remedial legislation can be
passed on to the incoming
directorate to nut into force for the
better handling of next   year's fair.
Friday, the Slet, has been definitely decided upon For this year*s
annual, and -with a full two weeks
to make arrangements in   the 1924
buafra of Uiz-Tu
look- furwi.ru
with confidence to a gathering o��
the friends of the fair that will,
break all previous attendance
ffeserds. -7- '_/_/_.���/.'-.���.�����*..=..-./";.
Prevent Handling
After our close-up presidential
acquaintance "with this .year's fair
one improvement that should have*
attention iu 1925 is the placing of
a -wire screen or some human proof
guard rail or other contrivance that
will automatically enforce a hands-
on policy in connection with the
display of baking and needlework,
more particularly.
With fancy work the owners go
to considerable trouble to place it
on display looking just-.-light, but
thia Sunday-beat appearance is off
short duration -when so openly
exposed to a large and naturally
inquisitive gallery of feminine
admirers, whose curiosity can only
be satisfied by a personal own
hands examination.
In addition  to   detarcting   from
the original immaculate appearance
of the tatting; crochet, embroidery,
or as the case may be,  long before
the fair is over exhibits at times get
-shifted out of  their- proper-sedtions
*.i.d all too  often   the prize ticket*
sooner or later  find   resting placea
on   other   than     the    prisMs-taking
articles���with  often er l^an   might
be expected demands on   the  man
secretary to  make re-arrangement--*
in a clash that he is   anything hut
at home in,   to say nothing   of the
unkind expressions   of  opinion   on
the fair directorate for not prevent
ing  an    altogether   uiipreventable
disarrangement of   things   as   the
fair   in     to-ltvy   handled   and   tlie
eternal' feminine constituted.
And precisely the same argumenia
can be used in making out the a&m
in favor of noreemnir in the -culinary
product, except that with tine

not   Writing   the     names    of   the-
winners on the prize tickets.
If no official intimation is given
out as to who the fortunate winners^ are the capabilities of the lady
judges, in particular, would not be
quite so widely"""a��d, doubtlessly,
unjustifiably questioned. -
In cooking, more epeciaily, it is
really wonderful how reluctant
many of the ladies are. to have a
red ticket proclaim that s. neighbor
has outscored "them in pastrymak
ing���ancheven more wonderful are
the outward and visible indications
they can detect as to the.superiority
of their own "baking as compared
with the judges' choice, with th&
equally superior inward appearance
and pleasing to the taste qualities
feo be taken for granted if after-the
fair friendly relations are to be
maintained.
Too,    with   the    elimination   of
prizewinners'   names will   also dis
appear the weakness for inspection'
that is even more to he desired than
with the fancy work.
ESireeZ&TS9 Aopreeiathm
In view  of    the   fact    that   this
year's   fair   was   $��ut over- ^vithaat
the usual   opening   oratorical   display   in   the   which opportunity is
given to express, the   thanks of the
directorate for the effprt   put forth
in various  directions   to make the
fair a success, will all   the   exhibitors, as well as those who gave their
time iii staging.the  displays in the
several classes, and those who made
financial contributions,   or   in   any
way whatsoever  did   anything   to
kelp the fair out, please  accept this
intimation in lieu of a-more formal
Thank you.that it.  is quite  out of
the question  to   extend   where   so
many lent   a hand in   such" a good
cause. 7 ������.... ���
���With no ladies on   the  board of
directors     the     management   was
dependent 011   the vol^
of workers t^y^^ - display'
sis' the ladiea classes and certainly
their work could not have been
done better had there been salaries
attached.
The lady exhibitors are also to
be equally complimented for showing their appreciation of a very
attractive list of jaw&rds by a
display of feminine handiwork that
has been equalled at few of the
B.C. fairs this year, according to
those in authority to 'speak on the
subject. ��� /
If the men of the community
would respond- as wholeheartedly a
two-stosry main building would be
none to commodious.
flowers-at the fair are of opinion
that next' year should see a very
large entry in the collection, of
house plants���judging , by_ the
number of slips that were withont-
permission clipped off1 the potted
plants on. display this year.

About the only familiar feature
missing from this year's fair was
the'old reliable best collection ot*
vegetables, which carries with it
the Board of Trade cup, as well as
substantial cash prizes.
No one paid any attention to the
collection, and if it is to come back
it looks as if new regulations will
have to be made governing the
competition in which will be stated
precisely what garden truck is
wanted to complete the  collection.
With something definite to go
on there is reason to believe that
interest can be revived, but should
the men fail to respond with the
needed revision given therw ia still

have for many years been engaged-in conducting^educational campaigns, and
issuing instructive bulletins, pamphlets and posters, designed to encourage
and help people in the conduct of their own particular "enterprises''and thereby
promote not only individual, but national progress and prosperity. Everybody is more or less -familiar witli work along these lines conducted by Departments of Agriculture and Health. .   y   7 r. "���';AA
The Post Office Department at Ottawa ha- recently foy^ad it necessary to
adopt simifar methods. Not the l��3ast interesting and instructive among ex-
liibits'at this year's Summer Fairs in the West were those of the-JPost Office
Department revealing the astounding carelessness of-people in addressing
_ettersah.d packing parcels entrusted to the postal service. The mass of in-*'
complete and incorrectly addressed mail matter, and carelessly packed parcels dumped into the post offices every day is almost beyond belief.
People complain of, heavy taxation, and <*larnouryto have postal rates reduced to the old pre-war level, arid at the same time."by their own gross' carelessness, compel the Post Office Department to maintain an expensive Dead
Letter Branch to correct their mistakes and protect them from losses^they
would otherwise sustain. j��he Dead Letter Office in one "Western Province
had to deal with over 100,0��> carelessly addressed pieces of mail, matter last
year, and this is typical of all the Provinces. When it is realized-that one
Buch incorrectly addressed letter or carelessly packed parcel means far more
Work, trouble and expense in handling than a score or even a hundred cpr-
a-cctl'y addressed letters or properly packed parcels, some idea will be gained
of the expense thus incurred. ,        ���     S .   : .   *" ">>..'
Nor is it in the Post Office Department alone that evidence accumulates
showing the extent of this national failing of carelessness. Canada is notorious as having one of the heaviest "fire losses of any country in the world, aiid
by far the greater percentage of these fires is due to carelessness. It would.
be bad enough if the enormous losses thus sustained had to be borne wholly
by the people responsible for them, but, unfortunately, the innocent (suffer
with the guilty, and people who themselves take every "'possible precaution
against fire see their life's work swept away through the carelessness of
others. Not only so, but all citizens, including those who exercise evea^y-care,
are heavily taxed to maintain fire,fighting services and^through the payment
of unduly high premiums for insurance,which the fire insurance companies
-are forced to levy on all because of heavy fire losses brought about by the

have to be adopted.      Perhaps it would prove effective if," following every fire,
Milwaukee   Man    Proves   Wisdom   of
.    Employing Boys From J-veuiile
Court
The problem of what shall be done
with the wayward boy has been solved in part in Wisconsin by D. W. Norris, Milwaukee philanthropist, who for
several years has absorbed some of
the output of the juvenile courts of
Milwaukee and placed it on a 752-acre
farm near Mukwonago, "Wis.
At present there are sixty-seven
bo^s on the Norris farm'.''varying "'in
age from 8 to 16 years. Nearly seventy-five per cent, of these come from
"broken" homes, those where parents
are divorced or separated, or where
death has occurred among .parents.
Not ail of the boys, are wayward or
the product of the juvenile court/
several being simply homeless lads.
Mr. Norris and" his mother personally directs the operation of the
farm, ' al tlio ugh" they .reside in their
home in Milwaukee. A corps of assistants handles the details.
��� While all of the boys are given tasks
that educate them in the care of purebred stock, in the raising of fine crops
.and the y market iug pf farm products,
including milk, butter, cheese, fruit
and vegetables, the general tone of the
place is to carry out the idea of a real
home, getting away entirely from the
idea" .of a correctional institution,
which the farm is not, in the sense
of state supervision. It provides
recreation, discipline, education,
health, home and -maintenance, everything to make a normal American boy-.
There are school facilities on the property;.. '������'
Although many of the boys come
from the juvenile court, and are under little "or no restraint,-they seldom run away from the farm. A
number of them have been taken
abroad on long trips by the Norris
family.     .���-....'

Why, too, should the careful, hardworking farmer who industriously, year
after year, strives to keep his land free from weeds, be compelled to sustain
heavy losses because a neighboring landowner is careless and negligent.-and
allows his land to become infested with weeds which spread in all directions
bringing incalculable loss throughout a wide area? It is time all laws relat-
inig fo noxious weeds were made more stringent and rigorously enforced.
Railway companies are doing their utmost to protect people at level
crossings, but hardly a day passes but some unavoidable accident is recorded,
lhe direct result of carelessness, negligence on the part of the individual, or
downright foolhardiness. Since the advent of the automobile many an engineer's, hair has been turned grey and his nerves shattered through the rashness oi ear drivers dashing across tracks in front of an approaching train.
Some people act as though railway crossing signs read: "Don't stop, don't
look, don't listen.     This is a railway track.     Dash full speed ahead."
A little'careful attention to these things on the part of all-people would
result in enormous savings to the individual, the Government and the public
generally, would prevent much suffering, and many life-long regrets. Careful people who do their full duty as citizens in these respects should not be

Right Weight For Marketing Hogs  Should^Jte Marketed At An Average  Weight of Two Hiindre-d Pounds  Mi*. A. .A. "DuacMillan, GAief of the  Sheep .and Swin s Divisioii"of the- Dominion Livestock Branch, has this to  say regarding* the right weight for  marketing hogs: Farmers who aim to  market a high percentage of hogs of  the select, bacon grade, after first hav-.  ing made sure- that^ their breeding  stock is of the right" type and "conformation, should feed in accordance with,  recognized and approved methods, and  aim to market^ea-jh litter at an average- weight of tAvo hundred pounds.  There might, of - course, be times  when a falsing market wouid warrant  selling at "slightly lighter -weights,  whereas a lising market might be an  inducement io feed somewhat longer.  Any great deviaticn from the two hundred pound average will undoubtedly and peaceful  ���������result in the sale of under-finished  hogs if early marketing is practiced;  Durir?g the recent  years  there  has  been a noticeable increase in the inter-  * a *���������  est shown by Canadians in the beauty  of theiri own. country and the poten-  tialities-'latent in its great natural  scenic resources The motor car,  which . has revrlutfbnized modern.  modes" of travel, is taking people into  the' open and giving them opportunities to see the wonders of nature such  as^they never balore had, and in this  way our citizens, in growing numbers,  are beginning to realize the.-extent of  the 'nation's wealth of scenery and  especially to appreciate-the rich pos-_  sibilities for enjoyment and recreation  offered by the Canadian National  Parfes. The construction and maintenance of good moTOivroads is in keeping with the demands of the age and  'of the ever-increasing army of motor  tourists, the members of which go  their way bringing ben'efits to themselves  and  to  the   communities   they  motor-roads in use in the parks is a  Iittle**over 530 ihites,"s_ mileage nearly  as great as that of the famous Columbia River "highway in rhe state of Oregon, and practically the same "as that  of the road between Montreal and  Toronto. Banff National Park, the  oldest and best known of the parks,  contains 130 miles of motor road, including a greater part of the Banff-  Windermere " highway. Sixty-two  miles of the Banff-Windermere road  extends through Kootenay National  Park; Jasper Paik contaifis 69 miles  of motor road, including'the completed portion qf_the new Edith Cavell  highwaj; Waterton Lakes and Yoho  Parks each have 33"_ mites of good  roads; and the remaining* 35 miles-of  the total is divided among Mount  Revelstdke, Glacier, Point, Peiee, Elk  visit.  A good pait at least of" the steady-  growth in "the number ot/visitors to  the parks must be attributed to-motor  travel. Last year 8,000 cars entered  Banff National Park, the majority of  which were owned by Canadians.  Many of these visitors come ^jtith tents  and" camping equipment and spend  their entire holiday in the park. The  use that is being made of the parks  in this way is a thoroughly democratic  one and in Keeping with the ideals  behind their creation. For while no  one can travel through the Canadian  "Rockies or spend even a few hours  among the wonders _of the National  Parks without gaining a new conception of the greatness and beauty" of  Canada, and of the possibilities of -rational life, still the^-mountains yield  their real riches only to those who  come, and live among chem,-absorbing  through weeks their silent strength  serenity. Th^se are  benefits the parks were created to give  and    they    cannot    be gained by the  . During the present season the construction of new roads "is being con-  -fined almost entirely to Jasper Park,  although maintenance work 5s being  continued on all the other park roads.  The Edtth-Cavell higfiway, which h-������s  been constructed to within five and  two-third miles of th'e base of Mount  Edith Cavell, will be completed this  year, but will not be*>open for trafiic  until /-next season. The road gives  access to one of the most impressive  scenic regions in'Jasper Park and will  bring visitors to the base of this  famous mountain memorial, with its  solemn Ghost glacier. Work on the  Jasper highway is being continued on  the fifteen-mile stretch from the town  of Jasper^ to Pocahontas, which 3s the  starting- point, for the well known  Miette hot springs. Clearing on the  proposed motor road from Laggan ih  Banff National Park to Field in Yoho  Park is also Leihgcarried forw.ard. this  year.  Had Railroad Laws  r  Before Railways  ing. There i������ also a ^probability that  the amount'-of range wools will be in-*  creased considerably in the ""next Qve  years. Western domestic wools are  of much the same quality as eastern  wools although they probably . lui*  mpre to the'finer grades. The nature  of the soil and tho openness of the  country, tends to the production of a  heavier shrinking wool.^*"- Soil-drifting  also detracts from the "thighthess of  the fleece and on this account grades  of western woo', are "subdivided Into  bright, semi-bright and^dark. Wool  produced from Western Canada range  jsheep compares favorably- with wool  produced on other range nrens of the  world. The bulk of the range wools  run to tho fine,.fine medium eombijig,  and~niedium combing grades.       ,  Wool grading, which was first in-  Btlluted by tho Dominion Livestock  Branch in 11)13, has done much to Improve the market qualities'of Canadian wool. Aboit twelve, thousand  hheep raiser.*? now consign their wool  for grading and co-operative sale.  This constitutes about one-quarter of i  tlie sheep misers. The growers have  their own warkeiiiig agency, the Canadian Co-operntivo Wool Growers,  ���������Ltd. This organization is an affiliation of soma thirty wool growers' associations and handles all the cooperative, shipments consigned for  government grading.
