 Provincial Library  &$im   A  Vol   XXI.  CRESTOM, B. 0... FBIJJAY. FEBRUARY 14,  1930  No.  50  }>  Kescind Eodgers  Franchise Motion  Council Rescinds Motion Passed  in 1927���������Reduces Poii Tax to  $4���������Edmondson Heads Roads  and Streets Committee.  F. H. Jackson, who has been named  chairman of the board of village commissioners, presided af the February meeting: of the new council Monday night, at  ���������which T. M. Edmondson and Dr. Henderson were present, and'considerable  business of importance transacted at the  meeting, which did not adjourn until  well after II o'clock.  Foremost among the resolutions adopted was one by Commissioners Edmondson and Jackson that the motion passed  by the council in November, 182;?, givissg  C. O. Rodgers permission to erect pole  lines and string electric light wires,, be  rescinded, and that the clerk notify Mr.  Rodgers to that effect. Mr. Rodgers will  also be notified that at March 1st the  municipal building will not require light  from the Rodgers plant.  There was considerable discussion as to  the legality of a motion by this council  actually rescinding a previous motion in  a ms-tsr tns.u u..  ad leu. to  -V_    t��������� ,j   im*.   luvcanaeai  of considerable capital to give light and  power service to part of the town. Chairman Jackson contended that legal advice  .had been obtained and such action was  quite in order, and Commissioner Edmondson held that in view of the discussion of this matter at the Ratepayers  meeting last month, and the outcome of  the voting, he was quite convinced the  .electors were in favor of such action by  ^thi-fo council.,; Incidentally .^JShweeiis^  'Jackson psoihtedo'ut that the rescindusg  of the Rodgers "franchise'" had to be  put through before the agreement with  Howard S. Amon or Creston Power,  light & Telephone Company, Limited,  could be considere fully effective. In  addition to doubt as to the legality Commissioner Henderson considered it a very  dangerous precedent to create. However, on motion of Commissioners Edmondson and Jackson the motion was  carri d.  , The other prominent feature of the  meeting was the quite unanimous decision to reduce the poll tax from $6 to $4,  and the by-law will be amended accordingly and finally passed at the March  meeting. All the commissioners were  agreed that it was not good municipal  business to ha *e the poll tax at a figure  where such an elector had the same polling privileges as a landowner.  There was quite a heavy budget of  correspondence, which included a request  from Jas. Cook, J. Foster and Mrs. Rog~  ers, residents on Princess Avenue, asking  for the erection of a street light at the  upper end of that thoroughfare, which  was granded. The incident brought out  the information that with this ligh installed the village will have 84 street  lights.  :"''���������'''���������'������������������ '-"���������"T",,:",     i":.;. ,::,,,;  "it ,������������������ f,���������' ���������  ," ',i,  St, VALENTINE  TEA >m SALE  Under the auspices of the Ladies'  Auxiliary of the Presbyterian  Church, at  Mrs. Henderson's  ,C. W. Allan was givers permission to  erect ses oSSee building on Canyon street  which will be 16 x 24 feet, and at the request of the deputy minister of public  works the clerk will advise him as to the  mileage and classification of highways  within the village limits. Last year the  classification was: Mcadam, % mile:  gravelled, 1>_ miles; rough gravelled  1 J_j miles;   cleared but ungraded, 1 mile.  J, B. Holder wrote complaining of the  way the village pound is conducted, and  Rose & Timmons notified of selling properties on Canyon street to T. Mawson  and Creston Motors and asking that they  be assessed to the new owners.  Up at Stewart, B.C., there is an agitation to Incorporate as a village and the  clerk was authorized to send the Stewart  Advancement League full information  concerning village government as exper-  enced by Creston.  An old account from Mrs. Stevens,  claiming $30 for damage done their fireplace and chimney, as well as broken  china sustained when blasting work was  done on Albert Street last fall, will be  investigated by A. "D. Hendren. and if  found correct the claim will be recognized.  It was decided to accept the offer of  Goat Mountain Waterworks Company  to supply water to the pound at a flat  rate of $1 per month. Accounts passed  for payment totalled $708.

Glass  ir.at ->mdjs  The Immigration Problem  I<m*r������ra_i   o>\n;v>o  GIVE GREAT PAIN  Tise subject of a-nomigratson, which. 3s at present -receiving  of attention by the people of Canada, and causing them no little* concern.  has always been in the forefront of national polcy. It is likely to remain  so. for many years to come, a result almost inevitable tn the case of a young  country of small population, vast "unoccup'ed areas, and Immense natural  resources awa'ting- development. And especially so when, elsewhere ������n the  world, there are numerous countries where population is already congested  and the surplus people avc -anxiously looking abroad for sasne place in which ]  to locate with a fair prospect of making a livelihood for themselves and"  their children.  It is probably true that in regard to no other question, of vital national  Importance has public opinion in Canada, as in the Un'ied States, so  completely changed within a few years as it has in regard to immigration.  Within the last few years the change has been rap'd and fundamental, and  thousands of men and women today hold views diametrically opposite to  those they entertained five or ten years ago. Many of these peopHe are now  tncl'nedi to blame former Governments because they adopted and pursued  policies which do not find favor today, forgetting that they themselves  believed in and approved policies then which, they condemn now.  Not so loag ago Federal Governments were applauded or criticised  according as they succeeded or failed to increase the volume of immigration  into tils Dominion. Almost without a dissenting voice.,���������organised labor  alone perhaps excepted,���������the people of Canada urged and demanded aggressive policies of immigration in order to increase Canada's population,  develop its resources, fill up the vacant spaces, and assist 3n carrying the  -Dominion's heavy "burden or debt. Immigration was held to be necessary to  provide business for our railways, and to reduce the per capita cost, of  government, schools,, and those many other modern services -wMch. people  demanded. And all governments tried to supply -what the people as a whole  ���������wanted.  Now all this h.as changed, and from all parts of the country there is an  insistent demand that Immigration be restricted, if not .altogether stopped,  and just as there were extremists in <_ays~gonVby who'favored a wide-open-  door policy of unrestricted entry, so now there are extremists who would  prohibit all and sundry from entering the portals of the -Dominion. As is  true ot" almost every question, there is in this matter of snxmigraticn a sane  and safe middle course.  Generally speaking, the opinion now prevails that all forms of assisted  Immigration should cease, or at all events shossld be 'strictly limited to |  individual cases of -members of a family desirous of coming to> Canada to j  ���������join relatives already established here. The view is also held that there  should be sso moire large movements of groups of people to "be settled isi  communities. It is practically assured that these policies will be adhered  to.  Canada's immigrat'on policy has for some considerable time been ono of  admitting only those, mentally, morally and physically wound, wiso proposed  to go upon the land, while those of the artizan and unskilled labor classes  were discouraged.  The  Trouble  Cars  Be  Removed  By Enriching the Blood  Supply  The chief symptom of rheumatism  is pain.   Cold or damp weather may  start the pain, but it is known that  tha trouble Ss actually due to weak,  watery blood.    The  most  successful  treatment  is   the  one   that restores  the blood to a healthy, normal condition.    Many rheumat'c people suffer  pains   that  could   be   avo'ded  if  they would -only  essrich  and  purify  their blood by taking Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills. These pills actually make  new, rich, red blood and in this way  drive out   the   poisonous   secretions  which, cause rheumatism. -   That this  as  the case  is shown by  the statement of. Mr- A. Osekle, Milton, "N.S.,  who says:���������"About two years ago 11 "brenaration.  had a very severe attack of rheuma- i ~  tisns.    The    trouble:   located   chiefly \  in nay hips and legs, the jo'nts swelling so badly that often I would have  to sit up in a chair, being unable to  tie down.      The pain,  at times, was  agonizing.      Finally I decided to try  Dr. Wiirams1" Pink Pills and these I  found, to my great satisfaction, just  the thing needed to relieve me of the  -misery   I   was   undergoing.      Under  the use of the pills the swelling subsided,    the    pain    disappeared,    and  l^ero has not since been any return  of the trouble.      I am very thankful  ; for whj-t   X>5** Williams'   P'nk   Pills  | did for sue, and hope some other sufferer may  benefit from . xay  experience."  , You can procure   these pills  from  any  dealer in medicine, or by mail  '. at 50 cents a box from The Dr. Wsl-  : li-ama' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont,  Nearest Approach Is a Glass SsbatJ-  -Ufie Called e!i"W-ridc'!iic',>  Tbere Is a fortsme. awaiting tha  man who-. Invents a flexible glass. This  stands perhaps at the head of the list  of necessary things the worldis walt-  foir. So far the nearest approach 4s  a glass substitute called "Windolite,"  Invented tn England, and put on the  market there in 1917, and ssow sold  in Canada. ������������������Windolite"' consists of a  cellulose acetate compound reinforced with fine, specially galvanized  wire mesh. It is so dipped in the  solution as to coat the wire mesh  thoroughly on both sides and the resulting substance is therefore completely waterproof, airtight, flex-ble  and practically unbreakable.  One advantage this substitute "has  over ordinary glass is that It freely  transmits the valuable ultra-violet  rays of the sun. This quality makes  "Windolite" invaluable for a w'de  variety of uses where real sunlight Is  necessary to health and growth such  as the rearing of young chicks and  turkeys in confinement. Ordinary  glass shuts out these rays, and yet  they are vitally important to human  benlgs, as well as plants, poultry and  live stock. Another surprising thing  about this glass substitute is that it  is cheaper than ordinary glass, and  yet extremely light in weight and  very strong.

Many having: but.little capital and meeting with initial cUscourage  ments and difficulties, have flocked to the cities in search of work, witis dire  results to themselves and to the urban communities thereby affected. How to  overcome this problem, made snore acute in recent years by the introduction  on a large scale of labor-saving farm machines, as, for eample, the combined  harvester-thres"her and the motor truck, and the consequent climissatlon of  the need for thousands of farm hands, is still in acute question,  It is now suggested that immigrat'on should be left to tl.e Provinces  rather than continue aa osse of tho major functions of the Federal Government, and that each Province should decide who, and bow -many, to admit  in any one year. But hero another difficulty preacsits itself, Provincial requirements and polic'es may be far from smiforns. One Province may adopt  a policy amount'ng alsnost to exclusion, while another Is much more Jax in  Its policy governing immigration. But once an imm'grant is admitted into  Canada by any ono Province, there ia no power to prevent such immigrant  from snoving to another part of tho Dominion' There must of ssccqssity be  some underatand'tig reached by tho Provinces if any effective restriction a  are to bo imposed by them., if the present plan of a central Dominion control  is superseded.

Resources of Manitoba, - Saskatchewan and Alberta stood pledged as  guarantees for tbe 15 per cent, margin demanded by Canad an banks on  loans to thi co-operatives���������but wheat  values slipped downward more than a  eent and a half per bushel.  On the cash market, No. 1 North-  ve_u was quoted at 51.20%, more man,  four cents below last-year's figure-rend the world crop this year is estimated at 533,000,000 bushels less  than that of .19:28���������and 132,000,000  bushels less than the five-year average from 1924 to 1928.

The old  world   perished through   disobe-  diellee.   The strength of weakness  of kingdoms may be ascertained  by examination of the warp and  woof.   If these have the strong  word of God the nation is strong  and   fearless.   Our   late beloved  Queen Victoria was  once asked  the secret of Britain's greatness.  In  replv   she   said,   pointing to  the Bible, "That is the secret of  Britain's greatness."  That mighty current, time, is  carrying us all forward into new  circumstances and conditions.  But not into ways that have  been trodden. Others have gone.  We but follow. A faithful record  is kept of where they went and  how they fared. Ours will not be  different." "Say/' say Scriptures,  "to the righteous that shall be well  with him." But they also say,  "Say to the wicked that it shall  be ill with him." A .careful look  into t e word of God will show  the wicked how he may be forgiven his wickedness, and his feet  turned rHo the   paths   of   right-  ure. It is one of the most singular books in the world, for every  time you open it some old text that  you have read a. seor^ of times  suddenly bjeams with a newineaia-  ing. There is no other book that  I know of, of which this is true;  there is no other book that "yields  its meaning ; so personally, that  seems to fit itself so intimately to  the very spirit that is seeking its  guidance/ V (Woodrow Wilson)  "The Bible is always a new  book to those who know it best."  (Chalmers). ;     ;  Read and enjoy the pleasure  ureand tjtie(|p|ofit. Gather the  strength and tn������ wisdon. Use it  as the sword of the spirit with  which to fight the adversary of  our race. As the light to guide  into the way of faith. It sheds  light from the cradle to the grave  and beyond it&. Read it with a  simple prayer for the Spirit's illumination.

After graduating from  the Norma! School, and teaching for a  term at Kitchener, the bride also became  u resident of the same city., where afc^  was on the staff of the Chase National  Bank.

By this means, we believe,  we can be of more service to our  individual congregations and hope  to render some useful  service to  the public  generally.    We have  this motive:   "Do all the good  we can, to all the people we can,  in every way we can, everywhere  we can, and as long as we can."  Our first attempt would be by  way of suggestion.   That   along  the most profitable lines.   Read  the Bible.   Read it in  your own  language, and as frequently and  as systematically as possible.    In  so doing you will find rich " stores  of both pleasure" and profit.   All  parts of Scripture are not equally  interesting.     There   are     green  spots;   oh these the people of God  have found nourishment and rest  and freedom from care and fear.  The simplest mind can grasp sufficient eternal truth  to save the  soul.   Not only so but grow to be  strong in every virtue.   Read the  Bible to grow into the knowledge  and image of Jesus Christ.   In  Scripture we behold his glory, and  as we behold we are changed from  the    image of the sinful, falTen  man into the image of the New  man.  Some there are who do not care  to read the Bible because they  think it is against them. A moment's reflection will show the  absurdity of this assumption.  Even sinful man will not raise  a danger signal if he wants to deceive. "Rather he will declare a  ���������^ clear const.' God, in the  Scriptures, declares dahger where  danger is. He willeth not  that any nhould perish. Therefore He warns and entreats. The  Bible ifl, because God is. against  Hin;   but for us.  To be sure of a flucccsuful ccmrac  through life the advice that God  gave to JoBhua Hhould be followed.  '���������Thiw book of the law shall not  depart out of thy mouth; but  thou whiilt meditate therein day i  f_uu.-i.-cas:  come into the soul of many a man  i if he knew that all his haunting  1 sins were forgiven. A look into  the word might bring that message. Millions have found that  comfort, and along with it the  secret of being kept by the power  of God.  life with us all is bound to be  of uneven tenor.   Youths experience wili differ from that of maturity.   The character of the young  will give strength and color to the  aged.   The boy is the father of  the man.   As the boy is,  as the  girl is, so will  the man, and the  woman be.    If these are moulded  as were the lives of Samuel and  Timothy   by   the word   of   God  from   their   youth   what strong,  beautiful characters they will be.  Boys and girls who read this read  the Bible.   Men and women who  read this read the Bible.   One of  the presidents of the United States  was once asked what he was reading.   His reply was, "I am profitably engaged in reading the Bible.  Take all of this book on reason  that you can and the balance on  faith and you will live and -die a  better man."  "I am sorry for the rnen who  do not read the Bible every day,  I wonder why they deprive themselves of the strength and  pleas-  The funeral of the late Frances Hand-  ley, whose death  occurred on February  6th, at the home of her parents at Erickson, took place on Saturday from   the  family residence with Rev.

Saskatchewan Government In Making  New "Regulations Has No Desire  To Kasnper the "Farssaer  The Saskatchewan Government isas  ���������decided to place the motor license  branch under the jurisdiction of the  Minister of Highways, "be'ng of the  op'nion that the adm'nistratiott thereof logically oelongs to the Highway  Departrnent. It has been hitherto under the Provincial Secretary. This Intention will be implemented at the  next session of the Legislature.  The Min'sEer of Highvvavs announces that the Government has recons'd-  ered the regulations relative to motor  truck licenses. He points out that by  the reduction of the car license fees  the revenue of the province will be  reduced this yea-" to the extent of approximately $600,000.00. The change  in the truck license fees was inaug-ar-  ated w'th the purpose of assisting In  revenue as well as to insure that  trucks used for commercial pur>oses  wossM pav their share for usage of the  roads of the province. These new regulations were based on the Ontario  regulations,, being on a slightly lower  scale throughout thass the fees charged in Ontario. The new fees are also  lower than those cha-ged in the province of Alberta, and many other  prov'issces and states.  Out  of 250 truck Tcenses already  ! issued this year. SS were registered at  ! the same fee as formerly, asid 25 reg-  I istered for a fee only exceeding last  i year's rate by $2.00 or $3.00. that ia  i 27 per    cent,    of    the    s-egistratlons  | shows   that   no   increase   has   taken  i place and 10 per cent shows an i.n-  | crease of $3.00 or less.

CHAPTER I.���������Continued  The presence of the little shop in  the front room did not cheapen the  old. house in Charmian's loving1 eyes.  As a- chid the contents of the highboy drawers had fascinated her. Now  she regarded them as something that  helped to give her grandmother a few  comforts. Had any one suggested that  they might he hetter osx in a smaller  place, she would have been aa horrified as would Grandma herself. The  view f rom her own window amply repaid her for the care of so large a  room. With   an   ssnerring   sense   of  beauty she clung; tenaciously to the  fine pieces of   old   mahogany   with  which    her    great-great-grandfather  had furn'shed his    family    mansion,  smiltag with inward scorn at the golden oak or mission furniture that was I  the pride of some of her friends and  neighbors.  Grandma, it is true, rather lacked  this adoration of the antique. She  gazed raptus-ously at the mail order  catalogues from Chicago, and was  particsilarly. enamored of an ornate  oak hat tree; wh'le Charmian, knowing that there was no possibility of  her grandmother making such a rash  purchase, smiled indulgently, and let  the old lady dream.  "I- only tho school committee decides to give me Distr'ct Four!" she  sighed a dozen times a day, and  planned how cvcs*y penny she could  save should go toward beautifying the  old home. Even as it was, tourists  (they had such things in Wickfield  how), would sometimes stop their  automobiles and admHre   the   gilded  j pineapple above the door, despite the  fact that its coat of goldleaf was  slowly vanishing before the snow and  ice of the New England winters.  Charmlan had been thinking of the |  pineapple this very morning, and wondering what it would cost to gild it.  ���������^hen the doctor sat down upon the  steps. As his eyes, came back, from  the syringa bush and met-her own,  she continued, almost apologetically:  "J. know it's too pig a liossse for  Grandma and me, but���������"  "Why not take a boarder?" he  broke in. "You've plenty of empty  bedrooms, goodness knows."  Charmlan was silent for a moment,  letting the thought sink in.

Then he looked up at Charmian and smiled. She made a pretty  picture, there on the top of the low  stepladder. Kler old blue linen, though  faded with many washings, still did  good work in brUnging out the blue  of her dark-fringed eyes; and her  cheeks were fiushecL  "A penny for your thoughts, Doctor,"* she said.  The old man shook his head.  "They're not the sort I'd prescribe  for an innocent-looking, miss like  you," he answered, "and yet," [a sudden twinkle appearing in his gray  eyes), "T think I'll tell them. I was  wondering, any dear, why some likely  chap hadn't run away with you."  The girl threw back her head and  laughed, adding much to the charm of  an already charming picture.  "Bat you see," she at last asserted,  "though I wouldn't breathe it to the  public, there are no likely chaps in  Wickfield."  "No?"     questioned     the     doctor,  frowning.    "What's the matter with  George K's boys ?    Or Jimmy   Bennett?  Jim's  a splendid  fellow,  or 1  never "knew one;  and some one told  me (either a little bird or Lizzie Baker), that���������well ...  .'*  Charmian laughed again.  try;qu surprise ane, Doctor Howe ���������  a close-mouthed snais like "you listening to gossip!

"And is filial devotion a quality to  be scorned?"  Although there was mirth in the  doctor's eyes, Charmian^s face sobered,  "Sometimes," she answered quietly,  "sometimes, Doctor Howe, I think It  is���������when one carries it as far as Jim  does, I can't imagine his asking a girl  to marry h"m without flrst dissecting  her with his mother.

The girl looked. up, suddenly serious.  "You really mean it. Doctor?"  "Yes, I mean it. I'm getting tired,  Charmlan, though I haven't been willing to face the truth. What I stopped  here for, my dear, was to ask if you'd  take the boy to board."  "The boy? You mean a new doctor?"  He laughed at her startled face.  "Why  not?   You've  room   enough  and  to spare. If you can't manage  his meals he could get them at the  Central House, I suppose; but I don't  think. he'd enjoy living there.

If he could get his dinners  down town I th'nk I could manage  the rest. As for Grandma���������"  "Charmian," called the old lady  from her window, "what on earth are  you two talking about all this time?  You tell the doctor to step in a minute before he goes, I want to ask him  aboist my rheumatism."  In a cruel accident on what was to  have been their wedding eve, that she  and the other ch'Idren of the neighborhood had been to him, in a measure, the babies that might have been  his own. In those days his buggy was  always full of children. "The more  the. merrier," he -would say, stopping  to take in the boys and girls on their  way to school. Pandora, his old white  mare, seemed of herown accord to  "alow up" at sight of any small figure ttrudging along the road. Pandora was in pasture, now, an honored  boarder, and, except when the snow-  snowdrifts were too deep, the doctor  travelled in a "flivver." His was the  flrst automobile to be seen in Wickfield. Indeed, when he drove for the  first time and waved a hand. Grandma Davis had almost fallen from the  window in her excitement.  "It doesn't seem quite right," she  said to Charmian.
