But at once he rejected any attempt at escape. .That  would only stdi-t Hardley Jn pursuit,  probably with that posse the corner's  jury had authorized so superfluously.  ' Rather, he must quiet the deputy's  suspicions, even to disclosing his official identity, if "necessary. Picking  his path, he strode down the incline to  .King Street.

But at first  sight of him, the deputy merely addecl  another to the morning's list of sur-  urises. This one took the form ot* a  cheerfully "waved greeting, as Jrotra  friend to friend.

There was a pair,     "I noticed  yesterday that you have  a come-hither eye," went on the  de-  pair  of bumps on the. back of his head  where the two put-out blows had landed, but there was no sign of a scalp  wound, thanks to the protection the  thick blanket had afforded. Except  for the confining bars and that ice-box  door, fie was entirely able to be out,  carrying the law where it sadly was  needed.  On his fourth and fifth round of the  small room, he paused before the door,  seized with a commanding impuse to  expend his surplus energy in beating  upon it. He had "seen prisoners behave in that same futile fashion in his  own guard rooms and, for the sake of  quiet, had put irons on them when they  persisted.      But there was no one in  puty in a lower voice. "I've got a  hunch them murdering stage robbers-  are camped in a canon south-of town  a-v-ays.

Too much to-  blame ufion ihe brandy this seemed,  for the deputy had been absolutely  sober in Brewster's room. But explanations   could wait:      Here  was  a  fed you.

'"Where did you get the  idea I was- in limbo?"  The sergeant did not need to feign  his look of mystification. That the  news''of an arrest that Hardley himself did not remember had traveled to  the creeks to be heard by Brewster  served oniy to deepen the puzzle.  "Did Hardley mention jail to you?"  he asked. "He didn't to me, and I  saw him just before I left town."  "It wasn't Hardlej--���������haven't seen  him since he left mj"- room last evening. But Cato said Hardley had  pinched you and locked you" up. He  declared he had helped in the capture  and -/"as- pleased with himself."  At mention of Cato, the sergeant  was suddenly in the clear, * although  not so much as an eyelash flicker betrayed the fact. He recalled now the  [���������inordinately long arms of the man.  ! Doubtless these had puckered the  blanket around his midrift and heat-  en him into unconsciousness. The  lovelorn old codger, fired with- jealousy, must have been stalking the  widow's place, mistaken him for a  rival and acted under the dictates of  his brandy-befuddled brain. That he  had forgotten to confide the fact of  imprisonment to Hardley was evident;  but then, he had neglected'to lock the  jail. How the ox driver had got possession of the key was a detail unexplained, but Seymour would never be  sufficiently curious about that to inquire into it. To have been taken  single-handed by Cato was not particularly flattering, "even though the  gnome was possessed of superhuman  strength.        ' *  . "Wasn't Cato hitting the hootch yesterday?" was ail he asked of the driver's employer.  "He was that," admitted Brewster,  "and he had a hang-over this mornings      But how he "ever imagined-  ^^^S^^SS^T       ^^^mm^^^r   B^^^���������   ^S^^b^Sj^R    ^*SSb3 TaffiBSBy   JSSSS     j^SSS ^*aa___*l������*S____^r     E������HfiS  Known throughout Canada for its purity,  its digestibility and delightful flavor*  "Write for the EDTVARDSBURG Recipe Book* ^  THE CANADA STARCH CO..

Above the scrubby timber  spiralled tho smoke of the hidden mission, to which the officer proposed to  pay a neighborly call when he had finished the meal 'of. bacon and beana  which he was preparing.  Yesterday, O'Malley and his niece  had made It plain that they wished a  conference with him to be secret and  under cover of ni������ht.

With  more  foresight than many laymen, he had seen  what-was   coming.      To  hold  the Indians of his congregation, or whatever  he called  it, and to keep  them from  contact   with  the  white"   "rushers"   as  far as possible, he had induced them  to claim, stake and register every foot  of bar and bench from the canon entrance back to the glacier.      To make  a close corporation of it, he and his  niece Ruth   had   staked  the   two   full  claims   between   the  canon   gate   and  the  Cheena.      Glacier Cr-e^k had not  proved  a  bonanza,   but   O'Malley   did  not seem to care, the laziest Sfwasli  .could pan out a living, and the old man  was keeping his flock together.  ..'   Then    along   ..came Bonnemort and  Kluger. a shrewd    pair    from    somewhere back in Eastern Canada.    They  1 saw a chance of operating the Glacier  I Creek-diggings on a large scale.     The  Bonnemorc of the combination admitted to being a half-breed, and he knew  how to handle the Siwashes.      Before  the missionary knew what was up, the  pair had leased every Indian claim beyond the canon gate.     Moreover���������and  Brewster was  forced to smile appreciated as he told  it���������-they had hired  the Indians to work their own claims.  When all was ;.et, they posted a "No  Trespass" sign and stationed an" armed    guard    at.    the narrow  entrance.  When this sentry turned back the sky-  pilot intent on visiting his  floclc,  the  whole district had learned of the coup.  Brewster    said    he    had been right  friendly with Ruth Duperow and  her  uncle at that time.      Because of their  fears   that   the   Siwashes   were   belpg  robbed, he had brought Sam Hardley  to   Investigate.       The   B.   ������**-   K.   outfit  had produced their leases nnd tho Indian*,   denied   that   they   were   being  worked against tlieir-will.      As no es-  tabliflhod trail ran up the creek, which  was a veritable cul-de-sac because of  Its glacier source, Hardley had decld-  i ed that the leases wore within their  rights  and that tli*.re wasn't a thing  to he dono about |lt.    . The creek was  still   closed,  and   because   there   was  only one entrance���������through the harrow-mouth of the canon, -where one  man could hold lip a regiment���������it was  likely to remain so until the withln-  the-law operators took down the bars.

A local motor transport contpany  recently extended its service between  Beirut and Bagdad as far as Teheran.  The conveying of bodies of Persians  from* the capital to Bagdad for railway transport to Kerbela, about 60  miles from Bagdad, is a profitable side  line in the company's business.  . High cost of burial in Kerbela is  beginning to worry faithful Persians.  In addition, to paying the mullahs,  who extract enormous fees for the  burial, they.: have to bear the transportation cost of about $1,000. , The'  latter,charge is said to be trifling compared with the fees exacted for a! good  burial site at Kerbela. , ....  ���������������������_--������_ ...

Anne de: Bellevue, and leading to the  degree of M.Sc. This is one of ten  scholarships. annually donated by W.  C. Macdonald Reg'd. Inc., tobacco  manufacturers of Montreal. Under  the terms of the glftf two of the  scholarships go to nominees of Quebec Province, this being by reason ot  the bilingual situation there, and the  remaining eight are for nominees from  each of the other provinces.  The scholarships are donated in pursuance of the policy of the late  Sir  William Macdonald, founder of W. C.  Macdonald-Reg'd. Inc., who In his life-  tiine donated many millions of dollars  to the advancement of scientific and  technical" agriculture.      The  late  Sir  Willlairi realized that If the Dominion's  basic industry, agriculture, was to be  developed properly and    her    natural  resources properly managed, it was essential to develop, competent agriculturists and    competent    practitioners  In the various branches of the engineering profession.     With this Iri mind  he gave away millions.      Some of his  princely benefactions went to the establishment or the  faculty  of  engineering    at   McGlH . University,    some  went to tho establishment and maintenance of Macdonald    College,    Ste.  Anno de Bellevue, which iajme. of the  finest Institutions  of Its kind  ln  the  world.       Some  went  to   tho   Ontario  Agricultural. College  Mr. Yauch, who represents Alberta  in this year's list of scholarship winners, Is a native of    LaPuyetto, . In-  ttiauu, where he was bom Iu 1901.    In.  1909  his parents  removed  to a  farm  near Langdou, Alberta, a-d he attended public and high schools at Lang-  don, starting* hla course at the Clares-  holm Sciiool oC Agriculture    In    1919.  He received his diploma there in 1921  und engaged In. biological work at the  school during the summer month-, lie  entered the UntverHlty    In    the    fall,  spending tho summer ot '22 and *23 on  his parents' farm, now located at Olds.  In 1921 was graduated with his B.S.A.  and secured a position as an assistant  in the soils laboratory at the University of Alberta.      He Is now apeclallx-  irin* In a\ntontology.

In addition to emphasizing the  needs of the individual resident in  the valley, the article .referred to  above might well serve the purpose of calling our attention to the  difficulties which the road builders have been up against for the  last few years, and to whieh they  are still far from finding a. solution.  Lsess than fifty years ago the  government of Canada subsidized  with millions of dollars and millions of acres of land a company  to construct across Canada the  first railroad, and in spite of the  assistance given the task was considered impossible and the men  who finally accomplished it were  regarded as national heroes.  ger belief, but which is accepted  by everyone as a matter of course,  of stopping for rain and even the  local resident takes considerable  pride in telling how "Lizzie made  it on high" through mud axle  deep,  A properly graded road, or  what would have been a properly  graded road ten years ago, can" be  I  almost every taxpayer in the coun- and frequently- is destroyed in a  -few hours.

To meet this requirement highways must be as carefully graded  and as well ballasted .as'the-roadbed of any railroad and in addition must be, as it were, double-  tracked to enable cars to flash by  hours.    In other words the  construction of  dirt  roads    has  become nothing more or less than  a waste of time and money and  of J what the people want and must  have arer permanent hard-surfaced  roads, and not only that, but they  want "them tomorrow, and while  the only means of securing the  money to speedily meet the want  of the taxpayer lies in increased  taxation, the man who wants the  roads  so  badly  also  wants    his  taxes reduced.

JS*~m r W  districts the machinery has failed  to function at all in so far as the  construction of permanent work  goes. It is submitted that Creston  District has fared in proportion to  the local assistance given probably better than anywhere else.  The construction of the Kuskanook higiway, the Canyon high  level bridge and its- approaches,  and of the n^w Kitchener road,  each one of which is a work   of  major importance to the district,  entailing   heavy   expense, might  possibly enable those responsible  for our highways to claim   that  Creston district was getting    its  fair share of attention and when  we add to this several miles,   of  hard-surface road now constvu.et-  ed we have indeed much reason to  be grateful.      The- possession of  several miles of permanent highway in itself places Creston in ah  enviable position as regards transportation, especially in   view   of  tlie fact that this   highway   has  been constructed in   every   case  where it was needed most.  This hard-surface road was, in  the Jftrst place, surveyed along the  line which runs from the Eriekson  school to the north turn at Kling-  ensmith's corner. About the time  that this road building south had  reached Klihgensmith's corner it  suddenly dawned on a few of the  Eriekson people that it-was almost essential if they -were* going  to market their crop .at Eriekson  to have the road diverted to tho  south.  ���������-.'... .  "  Action was taken, but the Eriekson residents were informed  that the road for certain reasons  would have to follow tho original  route mapped out. During this  season, due to tho fact that with  the eonstruetion of tho rock road  all traffic was diverted around by  the Eriekson station, to an extremely dry season, and to tho  marketing of the small fruit crop,  the m&& irom.

The problem of how to pay ofl: Canada's great war debt of two "billions of  dollars is one of such tremendous importance to every Canadian that it demands, and has for some time demanded, unremitting serious consideration  by all Governments, institutions, corporations and societies having the welfare of the Dominion and its people at heart. It is riot the Federal Government alone which should show concern over the problem, but each Provincial and municipal governing body as well, because so long as the dead weight  of our war debt rests on this country, with the resultant necessity of imposing heavy Federal taxes, all other Governments are goin*** to find themselves  in" financial difficulties. ... .__...  Amazing it is, therefore, to find so little serious thought given and practical action taken, to, find a solution of the problem- -Because of its very  magnitude and enormous difficulty the- Federal Government and Parliament  appear to be reluctant to touch it, with the result that while Great Britain  and the United States are steadily and even rapidly paying off their"'war debts..  Canada is marking time, and each succeeding year sees the Dominion no  better off and with no sign of any radical lessening of tlie taxation burden  In the immediate future. Yet on all sides the statement is made that it is  this heavy taxation which is throttling business and hampering industry  and general national development.  Governments-and people recognize the situation, but all seem loth, to attempt a remedy. On the one hand people are demanding a lowering of taxation. Some want the tariff further reduced; others point out that Canada's  high income tax as compared with the.United States schedules is driving  capital out of the channels of productive industry into the absolutely safe but  less profitable form of investment in Government Bonds; the general public''  are insistent that postage rates be reduced to the pre-war -figure and freight  rates lowered. y 7        .  But how, asks the Government, can the revenue from customs be further  reduced, less collected in income taxes, one-third cut off the postage rates,  and the-deficit on the Canadian-National railways  increased "through, lower  freight rates, and at the same time enable the Finance Minister to pay in--*  terest charges on the public debt andmaintaln they necessary public services.  not to mention making a start at paying off;'the'principal-sum. of the war debt?  There is the problem.      Some argue that, a reduction in tariff, freight and  postal rates would so stimulate business that increased importations, railway  traffic    andf   postal   transactions    would    not only offset any loss of revenue  through lower rates, but would actually lead tp increase in revenue because of  "the larger volume of business handled.      This, however, is a moot question,  and customs, postal and railway experts apparently hold the contrary view,  and say that increased volume of business would not make up'for the loss sustained through" lower rates and certainly would not provide any increase in  net revenue.  If present rates of taxation cannot be lowered and are absolutely necessary to maintain public services and meet the interest charges on the national  debt, it is even more certain that no additional taxation can be imposed in  order to pay off some portion of the principal sum of that debt each year.  So it would appear that Canada had reached a condition of stalemate.  Such a condition means stagnation, an end to all progress, and when a nation,  like the individual, fails to make progress and grow, it starts to slip backward. There is no such thing as standing still in the life of a nation. It is  either going forward or slipping backward. . ������������������������������������-,!  it is impossible io contemplate a young nation of intelligent, vigorous  people like Canada, with its enormous wealth of natural resources and God-  given opportunities, going backward. On the contrary it should be leaping  forward. At the moment, however, it is tied hand and toot. Some steps  must be taken to cut the knots.  If renewed life cannot be p_t into the industrial, commercial and produc-  tU'f enterprises*' ot* Canada through a lowering of taxation In the form of customs tariffs, -freight rates, postal rates, etc., and if we cannot lift the -lead  weight of the war debt by carrying even more taxation for a period, then  Governments must devise some otiher measures.  It is the duty of all eltl2ens to assist Governments in their task, and to  offer constructive .criticism and suggestions In regard to -the proper solution  of national problems. The writer ot" this article, therefore, suggests that, nil  o-)it>r methods having proved ineffective to solve our debt and taxation problems. Federal and Provincial Governments should unite their forces and 3ri-  au^urate an energilc nation-wide worlc of development of the natural resources of Canada, thus providing an enormous field for employment of labor,  traffic for our railways, busln->ss for our industiies ami commercial houses,  and profitable utilization of available capital.  Development   for   uae  of Canada's  natural  resources   is   the. instrument  which uno,Uft-jiionably will cut  the knots which hamper  the Dominion's pro-  . gr'-���������������������������.������, and the production of wealth through such development is not only the  fii.irf*-*, but apparently tlie only way in which we can ever hope to pay oft* our  War debt.

People In Some Sections  Threatened With Famine  There is "real anxiety in Russia over  the short wheat harvest. During the  months of May and June this year  there was considerable. drought,- affecting practically the same section of  country whichsuffered in the famine*  of 1921. The number of persons  threatened, this year will be approximately the same as in 1921, or about  25,000,000'.  About 20 per cent, more wheat was  sown In 1922-23 than in 1921-22, and  1923-24 shows sh additional increase  of 10 per cent, in wheat sown,* so that  the total harvest-for the Soviet union  may be sufficient "to meet the needs  of all the people if exportation from  sections which have not been affected  by the drought is stopped, there being  but little surplus from last year.  /In the sections affected the price  of rye and wheat more than doubled  from June to July and relief measures  were introduced to endeavor to bring  down the price.-including the shipping  in of grain from other sections of the  country.  The Black Sea and Southeastern  districts have had very bad crop con-:.  ditions. while in the Middle and Lower Volga regions the crops are completely destroyed. . While the drought  was not continuous the rain which fell  was nearly always torrential and was  unevenly distributed. : It fell mostly  on earth so hot: that it evaporated  without penetrating the soil. 7 The  threatened sections have been swept  by hot and sometimes torrid winds,  and the temperature has been ex  tremely high. . f  Experiments Show Crop On\,Good Land  Less, Affected    ������  'Several   different   cultural  methods  tried at the Experimental Farm, Brandon, have had the effect"of lessening  the damage from rust in so far as they  have affect-sd the date    of   maturity.  Thick seeding,  for instance,  has  exhausted   the  moisture   supply  sooner  than the thin seeding and has resulted in a Ufss rusted "crop.      The thin  seeding, also, tillers more extensively than the thick seeding and consequently causes! delayed maturity.   The  crop on stubble land   is    less   rusted  than on fallowed   land    as    the    soil  usually    contains    less  moisture and  available fertility, resulting in earlier  maturity an������ a less succulent growth.  For  the  same reason,  the  crop  on  corn land is less affected by rust than  ��������� Va^O ������*���������������������*-������,������>        S>-*1 f*-������lla-*T-*T.O^-"i        -1W* *������*_ aT*l tTOT _+        la  ������,X-X_< -__*.*>������*'        VJJ.        1U*1V II W *M>**1_9        /   Vb|        a������ w       ���������������������������������  significant,' that   the    corn land has  yielded    equally    as    well In normal  years. andTis'ually a little more in rust  years.  Applying barnyard manure and  nitrate fertilizer has slightly increased the rust, wnlle the phosphatic fertilizer has had iio "effect.

The winters  that prevail over the greater portion  of Canada- lock up for practically the  entire period from harvest to seeding  time the fertility present In the soil.  The plant food that has -been converted into available forms during the preceding summer and autumn and which "  Is left over after the season's growth  is detained for the next season's crop.  The frost holds tight within its grasp  untold values in plant food. In  regions where winter conditions are  absent * this soluble plant food is lost  by leaching and must be replaced  largely by artificial fertilizer. The  Canadian winter must therefore be regarded-'as an agricultural asset of no  mean value. ,__-  Anyone who gives "thought to the effect of the bracing winter atmosphere  upon the health of the people must  recognize its value In the rearing of  a vigorous and active populace". Canadians are proud of their winter sports,  skating, hockey, skiing and tobogganing, which make the blood course  rapidly through the veins and bring  the bloom to the cheeks of the  younger people. While those of more  mature years find their winter recreation in curling. Canadians, notwithstanding that others may think differently, do not hibernate when winter  coines. - ':-' : _.
