Forward, v.anaaa  l*ying latent In the nature of almost every individual there ts one human  characteristic which comes to full bloom in times of excitementp emergency,  or undue stress. It ia the tendency to indulge in exaggeration, A crowd  assembles for some part'cular reason and the average person est'mates the  number at two or three times Its actual size, or an accident occurs and the  report is immediately circulated that the toll of the dead and injured is many  times greater than the reality.  So, too. when times are good the impress'on "becomes general that they  are better than ts really the case, and a ���������"boom"'" Is created, speculation is  Indulged in far "beyond what the circumstances warrant, and the end is  ultimate loss, and in some cases disaster. Herein the West ind" cations in  any year may point to a fairly large and satisfactory crop yield, and the  inevitable tendency is to make estimates of the yield far in excess of what  the harvest reveals.  Tura'ngr to the other side of the picture, and the same thing will he  found to be trtse. A slump occurs in business, the returtss of the crop season  are below the average, a degree of smempioymeat exists, and almost  immediately the "human tendency to exaggerate comes into play, and everything: is painted in much more somber colors than there is any justification  for so doing.  ' _  This tendency to undue exaggeration is in evidence in "Western Canada  today to the detriment of the whole country, and to every person resident  therein.    Recognizing the fact that the crop of T929 was disappointing and  below the average of many years, coupled with the further fact that the  "burden of the loss has to be borne by certain sections of the country which  harvested little or no grain, the impression is created of a practically total  crop failure, and that the country is no good.      Such exaggeration ignores  *V.Q.  "   Tragic.'- was" the  fate-of  British, airmen who crashed into the'  &Se'..;.l&it'*~&- mauntalsT   hi''.' \*Kbrtbersi/'  ���������Af rlea,..; anil were  killed^ whlle^ at-  teraptfcgpa make a non-stop flight  from _2hgland to Capetown. It is  a reminder that mountains are a  greater-danger to airmen than rocks  are to seamen.  The seas have been so travelled!  that'- almost every rock in existence  Is known, charted, and in some way  marked by s!gna at night. Except  for what earthquakes, may do by  changing the configuration of the  bed of the^ocean, there is probably  no voyaged that any ship can make  without bslng fully prepared to  avoid submerged rocks.  The aiir routes wiU have to foa  marked out in the same way. This  Is not the first t'me that aviators  have come to grief through hitting  a mountain.  The route to South Africa is across  varied terrain. These airmen may  have been flying thousands of feet  high and felt they were quite safe,  forgetful of the peaks which rear  their heads far into the clouds.'  Long distance passenger 'planes  are to increase rap'dly, and the pilots  will have to be provided with charts  which will show them how high they  must fly along the routes in order to  avoid hitting a mounta"n.

Harmless as the -recipe on the  wrapper; mild and bland as it  tastes. But _. its gentle action  soothes a youngster more surely  than some powerful medicine  that is meant for the stronger  systems of adults.  That's the beauty of this special  children's remedy? It nsay be  given the tiniest infant���������as often  as there is any need. In cases of  .colic, diarrhea, or similar disturbance,-it is invaluable. But it has  everyday uses all mothers.should  * understand. A coated tongue call*  for a few drops to ward off constt-  'nation; so does any suggestion of  bad breath. Whenever children  don't eat well, don't rest weli, or  have any little aapset���������this pure  vegetable preparation is-usually  all that's needed to set everything  to rights.

" A friend told me to try  that, taken on the whole, and year after- wear, Western Canada has been  forging steadily ahead. One swallow does "hot make a summer, nor does  one crop shortage, or even failure, condemn a country or provide substantial  ground ���������or discouragement and depression, any more than one bumper crop  establishes the fertility of any section or justifies a "boom." and extravagant  expenditure.  At this time the people of Western Canada,, in city and country alike,  may well give consideration to, and base their actions upon, the a\Terage  of conditions. If the grain crop was smaller than usual in 1S29, in 1928 it  was so big that.it shattered all records: if the 1929 grain crop fell below  the average, dairy production, in Saskatchewan, for example, increased by  three and one half million pounds, aj30 per cent, increase over 102S. The  figures of bu'ld'ng construction in the West, last year, established new high  records; employment was snaintained at a high ratio throughout the first  nine or ten months of .the year, and the present slump is only seasonal and  temporary, with prospects for 1930 just as bright as they were in 1D2&.  "Let us remember that if the export of agricultural products by  Canada fell off in the last half of\1929, the gra"n is still In Canada to he  transported by our railways and sold by our people, and the results will be  reflected in the business activity o������-1030. Let us be encouraged by the fact  that the greatest of our great Western enterpsvises, the Wheat Pool, has  successfully contended with.a sot of the most difficult circumstances. It has  been put to the test, but with the united support of all Canada's banking  inaftutiions and business and commercial interests generally, it is now quite  evident that it is winning out in its great fight to protect the nterests of  Canada's great army of producers.  It is impossible in this world for any person, cousstry, or corporation,  to forever move forward, onward and upward. It is inevitable that.periods  of recession must interrupt such steady progress. The stock market  cannot forever go on climbing higher and higher; it must take a drop some  time. If the pendulum swings too far one way, it must swing back again  because an equilbrZum snust be maintained. Wo cannot always live on the  lurified heights; it becomes necessary at times to descend into the quiet and  repose of tho valleys. ���������  The position of Canada, and of all Canadian industry, ngricutlural,  manufacturing, commercial, is essentially round nnd strong; stronger than  that of almost any other country In the world. There is no jssstiflcation for  nny depression, because no cause cKiots for it. To the extent that it is  prevalent with some poople it is largely a mental condit'on. Reverses have  been suffered by some people in Canada as in other lands, and occasions ar'se  in the life of every one when they moot with a reverse, But a reverse is not  defeat.     Courageously faced it can be turned to victory.  Fires Are Costing Canada Almost j.Gold Medal Won By Director Of  One Hundred Million Annually j Dominion Observatory, At Victoria  Fires cost.

The wires were  torn down for a stretch of  about 200 feet.  As the result of speedy work  by telephone men all of the  lines sffected were restored to  service the same afternoon.  Circuits _put of otder were:  Vancouver" to Seattle, eight;  Vaucouver to Portland, one;  Vancouver to Langley, three;  Vancouver to Abbotsford,three;  Vancouver  to   Cloverdale, six;  their services.

CKESTQN*   B  ,C3   FRIDAY; JAN  31  a*.   .  | LETTERS  TO THE EDITOR  Demand Democratic Control  Editor Review:'  Belief that the basic problem  facing the growers today is to be  found in the disastrous competition caused by so many shippers  was freely expressed at the annual meeting of the Creston Farmers' Institute. It was also point-  ed out. that until this problem is  solved there could be no independence in the collection of accounts,  and growers would continue .to  suffer heavy deductions on their  returns, That the shippers,  through their Federation, would  exercise anything like effective  control over distributEon of their  own competition was also considered extremely doubtful.  The meeting, which was a representative one, finally sanctioned  direct action along the lines of a  report submitted by the fruit  committee. This took the form  of a letter to the premier explain^  ing the views of the members  of the Institute, and a decision to  ask affiliated institutes to support the cause of democratic control.   The text of the letter follows.  PREMIERS. F. TOLMEE,  Vhtoria, B.C.

Growers' & Shipp-i  ers* Federation in appointing representatives to the Committee  of Direction  is  exercising a governmental  control over  our industry;   and  Whereas, This Federation has failed to  form an alliance or union between growers and shippers, and is an amalgamation  of shippers;   and  Whereas, The success of the Produce  Marketing Act d?pends upon the goodwill of the growers, and their consent to  the orders of the Coanmittee;    Therefore,  Resolved, (t. That the Creston Farmers' Institute requests that the minister  approve a successor to_the aforesaid Federation. (2). That the society so approved be named "The Federated Growers of  British Columbia.'" (3). That- alk farmers, the marketing of -whose products 3s  i controlled by the Produce Marketing  J Act, shall be the members of the society,  and in properly deftne-d districts shall'  elect their representatives by ballot, with  authority to appoint the two members  to the Interior Committee of   Direction.  "We propose that a charter society be  formed in which every farmer may have  represesstation on democratic lines as  outlined in paragraph 3 of the resolution.  And in addition to the powers of the  present Federation, we desire that authority be embodied in the charter whereby  the society may, if unified control would  result in more economical management,  evolve gradually into a status similar* to  that of-the holding company of the manufacturers under the joint stock system.  We consider that ���������'control"' should be accepted as of capital importance as between the farmer and the society; and  the latter, by virtue of its responsibilities  should subscribe to a proper code of regu-  ations imposed by the Province.
