Baptist, Catholic, Lutheran, Mormon, Methodist, Presbyterian.  Bound, and every other church had  one or more representatives in - the  gathering that- packed to capacity  both the seating and standing room of  th������ Grand Theatre on Sunday night at  a community service at which the  feature was " H. Arthur Barton's  address on "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."  It was the biggest turnout ever seen  locally at a church service,, and the  evening exercises were participated in  by Pastors James and Knox of the  Presbyterian and Methodist churches,  with a, united choir furnishing the  causae, assisted by Mi-s. Harold Laog-  ston, who favored with "Be Thou My  Guide," and Mr. A. Spencer, whose  solo contribution was *"A Dream of  Paradise," both of which helped to  round out the evening's' music most  appropriately _  After sketching the story of * _5r.  Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" with an ocea  siooai finished resort to the dramatic  to heighten the effect of Stevenson**  well known tragedy, Mr. Barton proceeded to apply this story of double  living to present day life, taking as his  test, **0 wretched man that I am, who  shall deliver me from the body of this  death?" In business, in society, in  every phase of human activity, the  speaker emphasized the all too prevalent tendency for double dealing- and  double living and ia--eloquent and  practical terms expounded the gospel  of time for a change.  That such an address will have a  lasting effect on ������lt whn Vjeard it- t"_ere  can be'* .so reason for -doubt* and Os-ss^  ton ia indeed fortunate to Jiave had s.  visit from an evangelist of the Barton  type, with his unusual ability to-point  out the way of life in terms that impress all who hear-him. -  oaThe attendance was easily 400, three-  fourths of whom were adults, and the  freewill offering taken amounted . to  almost $50.  in any way assisted   during   the  evening.  The fine weather and good travelling  enabled quite a large delegation of  Canyonite<t to attend the big community service at the Grand at Creston on  Sunday night. After..the monster  crowd Mr. Barton attracted it would  look as if a United Church ~was what  Creston needed.  Clifford Vance of Kellogg.

The Glacier natives would  see her no more until .Seymour came  for her. 'that he would come for her  ���������that he would he able to come for  her, she did not doubt. From the  moment she had seen him stride into  ihe tent of Bonnemort -as if he.owned  it, she had felt certain of his ultimate  success.

'throughout the walk from the tent, she1  saw, with a tremor of aalrm, that  Bonnemort had beaten her to the improvised bridge. She sidled away  from the log's end and seemed intent  on watching the stream. Of course,  the up-risen breed would be above  noticing a squaw drudge, but she preferred to take nd unnecessary chances.  With eyes steadily averted, she  waited. The heavy steps drew nearer as the big man set his JTeet on the  flattened surface. Then suddenly,  they ceased. He had halted at the  end of the log.  "Look up here, 5-ou klootch!"

As penalty he demanded a kiss then  and there where all her tribe could  see. In the struggle to er force his  low-voiced decree, the bandanna that  bound Moira's head fell to the ground.  Her marvelous hair was revealed.  Both hands seized her and held her  off, as helpless in his clutch as though  she had been a child. . For, a moment  his eyes enjoyed the oddly masked  beauty of her. But soon, with comprehension, there entered a new light  ���������that of recognition.  "So-" he muttered, baring his teeth  as an-' angry** beast hares its fangs.  Transferring his hold to her sts*eam-  ing hair, Bonnemort flung the girl  from her feet and started to drag her  toward the tent.  __At last,.all other "hope gone, Moira  O'Malley screamed for help���������the help  of her Mountie. The green old glacier broadcasted her distress, reverberating her shrieks until the \ gultih  rang with them.

According to quarterly  Journal of the Royal Meteorological  Society, this record has been broken  at the Italian settlement of Azizia, in  the semi-desert region of North Africa,  about 25 miles south of-Tripoli, where  a properly sheltered thermometer rose  to 136.4 .degrees.

And  this raises an   interesting   question:  What is the limit of flight of a pigeon?  A few years back ������00 miles was held  to be impossible, but today there are  numerous pigeons In England which  have exceeded that distance.     There  were many flights    by -war    carrier  Siigeons of  extraordinary length, and  precision, and the, i 800-mile    journey  from Marseilles to England has been  covered by a pigeon in a single day/  Round-the-Woild Tirp  Lirter's Pantries Not Big Enough For  F-oo-u Supplies  The Red Star liner Belgenland: called at Plymouth'for the last time prior  to a round-the-world pleasure trip.

While there,  I visited the emigration office of the  Dutch Government^ inspected the farmers' ,  markets,    went    through    the  country   and :was  invited  into  Dutch  farm homes.      The entire arable land  of Holland is  settled  and under cultivation, and the    farms    have    been  sub-divided to the  limit,  the  surplus  farm population lias no alternative but  to drift into tho cities where there is  great  unemployment.       Therefore,   it  will he seen that the sons of agriculturists have little or no prospects ot  being able  to  secure  farms  iri  their  homeland.     It must also be borne In  mind that a largo amount of trained  agricultural labor has been developed  which is in excess of the demand. , So  impressed was I with the possibility of  securing settlors of the most desirable  type that wo  have  opened  n  branch  office-of colonization and development  in Rotterdam.

My impression of  your town and surroundings are  certainly very good.  Surely the fin_ opportunities  for fruit growing in the beautiful mountain-girdled Creston  Valley will - attract more and  more of the best families. I have  found the people kind, sociable  and appreciative.  After much experience in public work, in more than one country, I am convinced that the real  happiness; the business and  religious future of communities  depends upon genuine righteousness, founded upon brotherhood,  cooperation, faith and hope.  Tbss- qualities kill pettiness and  _aske the good of al! tlie concern  of each.  Appreciation I must express for  much co operation shown in the  special services recently held.  The great audiencg in the Grand  Theatre on Sunday night will  long be remembered by many.  May I very sincerely and cordially thank you, Mr. Editor, for,  taking the lead in planning for  this memorable community occa  sion. Also for printing the  hymn sheets used free of ctrarge.  Allow me to congratulate you on  your tine community spirit  One also wishes to thank the  manager of the theatre for so  generously giving the opera  house entirely free of charge. In  expressing thanks to both yourself  and Mr. C. O. Bodgers I am  sure I am voicing the feeling of  the whole community.  h May the Divine Father help  -us each one to show the spirit of  forgiveness, brotherhood, co-operation and twentieth century bigness toward all, making Creston  known throughout the west as  the town of promise, brotherhood  and the glad hand. Thanking  you sincerely.  H. ABTHUB BAJELTON.  Features o/BmCm  Fruit Men *s Meet  Mr. De Hart displayed the  sample of a new box which he said  would contain 112 apples with  cardboard air spaced divisions.  These boxen, he said, would laud  apples in London which would  bring twenty shillings per box. He  also reported shipping cherries in a  four-pound box to London outside  cold storage. Some were shipped  to Milan and had arrived in excetl  ent shape. For experimentation  purposes a lot were shipped Hack to  Canada and were in the pink of  condition when they were eateiv in  Winnipeg on December I.  The main difficulty in connection  with co operative marketing was  for the co opera tire to pay as good  prices as the independents, said  President Chambers of the Associated Growers, i;n his address.  Wherever a few were handling a  small portion of the crop, it wab  always posnihIo For them to pay  higher prices than, a larger orgaluaza-  tion handling the bulk of   the crop.

Mr. Chambers announced an  appropriation of ^20,000 for- the  advertising of B.C frttifc this year.  Independents reaped the benefit of  this, but contributed nothing  toward the cost. He suggested  that the advertising in export  markets be handled by the government, an assessment being made  upon boxes imported into the  market being made to cover the  oost- This was the system followed  by Australia.

Most of this data was of a negative character, but in the main it  went to show that Jonathans  picked while there is still a .tinge of.  green in the under-color are less  likely to break down than those  picked in a more advanced stage of  ripeness.  That there should nob be more  than twer. ty five varieties of apples  {grown in the whole of Canada, and  less would be better, was the statement of Mr. G. E. Mcintosh of  Ottawa, Dominion Fruit Commissioner. In 1924 fifty-six varieties were sold in Canada.  He believed there was a demand  for a package even smaller than the  standardized   box     for   consumers  who   resided     in   apartment   and  boarding   houses.^    He   suggested  th at a box, half   the " si_e   of   the  standard box be tried out  to ascer  fc������n the feeling of   the   trade.    He*  did not   believe it good   policy   to  make     government   inspection    at  shipping   points   compulsory,    and  expressed satisfaction that the pack  and grade had    been   considerably  improved since 1923.  A feature of an eminently practical address on marketing, by J.  A. Grant, markets commissioner,  Calgary, was his reefreaice to a  necessary reorganization of the  system of brokerage.    He said:  "The time has arrived for a reor  ganization of the system of broker  age. At present they ace owned by  the jobbers, who control them and  at the same time we pay them to  act aa our agents. This as" fundamentally wrong in principle.

B.    O.  its. i  it *-..  Vi:   -���������:  H'  Sessional  Indemnities  The subject of indemnities paid, to Senators, Members of. Parliament and  of "Legislature^, which-- was dealt with, in a previous article, is begirining to  attract widespread attention throughout Canadar^nd, if the generality: of voters proceed"now to** make their voices heard, there -would appear to be strong-  hopes of success .crowning., the efforts of those who advocate this very neces-K  sary reform and consequentreduction in. taxation..;;..-7  The Union of Municipalities;,.of ��������� Alberta is openly advoeating a reduction  of sessional indeminiies, and in view of Lhe fact that in Alberta the sessional  indemnity is $2,000, such action is not surprising, and especially so as for  sonie years past the Alberta budget has' not balanced and the Province has  gone steadily into debt to meet its current expenditures. The Alberta Union  of Municipalities goes- farther and advocates a reduction in the salaries of  cabinet ministers and of all Government employees receiving in excess of  $3,000 per "year:  In the British Columbia?:Legislature, a Conservative member, Reginald  Hayward, advocated a reduction in the members' indemnities, but there was  prompt and vigorous oppostiionfrom the members generally. British Columbia, however, has just recently-passed through a general election, and the  members, secure In their seats for a number of years, see no reason for cutting their incomes. . This leads the Winnipeg Tribune to suggest that action  looking to the reduction of indemnities should "be taken at tlie last session  before an election because "few members due to face- their constituents within a short time would care to be on record upholding the present amount of  the indemnities.  With a general election impending in at least one of the Prairie Provinces--, Saskatchewan, and with the Legislature itself on record iri favor of a  reduction in the cost of the legislative machinery through a reduction in the  number of members, pressure should now be brought to bear by the people of  that Province in favor, not 'only of a reduction in the number of members, but  in the amount of the sessional indemnity'paid to the niembers.  True, the Saskatchewan indemnity is not rxoyt as .large as that, paid in  Alberta,- but it is nevertheless too large. Thousands of men are giving their  services throughout the year as reeTes and councillors of municipalities, attending council meetings every month, and generally devoting time and consideration to the needs and welfare pf their communities and receiving little  or no financial return. In comparison, niembers of the Legislature who attend one session of six or seven -weeks a year and receive indemnities jn ex-  css of a thousand dollars are overpaid. ���������������������������������������������*  The situation at Ottawa is even worse than in the Provincial capitals.  Less than twenty years ago the sessional indemnity of Senators and M.P.'s  was $1,500, the number of Senators 81 and of the House of Commons 214." Today there are 96 Senators,* an increase of 15, aud 234 M.P.'s, an increase of  20, and they each receive a sessional indemnity of $4,000, or total indemnities  of ?I,32O,O00 per session. In addition they enjoy other perquisities, not the  least: of which is free transportation on all the railways of Canada.  The membership ot" the House of Commons is fixed by the British North  America Act. and while the present membership may not be considered unduly  large in view of the extent of the Dominion and its varied and frequently conflicting interests which demand adequate representation, the time will undoubtedly come when the unit of representation will have to be altered if the  Commons is not to become an unnecessarily large and unwieldy body. The  sessional idemicy can. however, be easily reduced. The fixing of the indemnity is in the"*Tiands of the members themselves.     >  lUii'dened with a huge war debt, which is forcing many sacrifices on the  whole body ol* the Canadian people, and with as yet little real attempt being  made to provide for the paying off of that debt, it would be an example of  patriotism, an act of statesmanship, and an exhibition of real leadership if our  Sen** tor--?, and Members of. Parliament at. the approching session proceeded to  fix. -.Ik- ind en-mi IV to bo paid members of the next Parliament at a considerably  lowt.T figure than now prevails. The present financial condition of the country, and the resources oi* the Government, do not justify the present indem-  r.itU-K. TiV-y are the cause of dissatisfaction in the country and weaken the  confid'-noi.: in and respect for Parliament which should be entertained' by  every ciiizf-n.
