"Shut  up,   you   fool!"       A   look   of  fright    crossed    Brewster's handsome  face.      Por a second lie seemed about  to spring upon Karmack.       Then,  as  quickly    as    it    had come, the spasm  passed.      He turned his eyes..on Seymour.      "If you over press this ridiculous charge," he said, "I'll prove it  false to the jury.      I've    done    some  freighting for the B. & K. outfit, nothing* more.     Hods in Iters to-day to collect a bill.      Down at tlie canon, Klu- I  ger  passed me on  to Bonnemort.      I i  ran into you���������and trouble."  After a moment's pause, Brewster  continued: "'Say, if you really are Sergeant Seymour, who was the uniformed bird that came to Gold as Bart Caswell?"  "Bart Caswell's widow is ready to  tell the court why he killed Ben Tabor  in robbing the B. C. X. stage of my uniform and papers," ths sergeant answered somewhat cryptically.  "Poor Ruth," murmured Aloha. "She  really believed."  "Well, I'll be -" Brewster began.  "Told you Caswell was a crook,"  whined Karmack. "No yellow legs  would have let himself be caught the  way I got liim that day up here on the  creek."  Seymour waited- for Moira to speak.  When she came toward him her face  wore the bravest smile he had ever  ������sen on a woman.  "What    next.  . pardnei-?" she asked  j ed    to    Brewster    for  j "What is the current  platinum?" he asked.  But the freighter no  fable.       "I'm  no  tion," he growled  "Try me," offered Karmack with a  return    of    his    old-time    effrontery.

Seymour had no thought-of  tolling them how rich they were making themselves, until their status was  fixed by the proper court. Meantime  they'd be best off, continuing * their  labor, lor "all the gold" allotted them  by the spoilers.     ->  'With Brewster tied to his saddle  and Karmack, still handcuffed, on foot,  the., prisoners    were     started    down  of the sergeant  -.0 prisoners    were  creek under**the guns  and his volunteer aid.

Without ceremony, the sergeant lifted Karmack to his feet and ushered  him to the Jeft-liand cot. From that  seat, the disfigured ne'er-do-well  might glare more conveniently at  Brewster.  "But that chest holds only frog-  gold," Moira reminded Seymour. "The  Siwashes have all the real gold, and it  br'ongs to them."  "You don't really think that a close  and crooked corporation like Brewster,  Kluger and Karmack would supply  food, dynamite and expert management for a bunch of Indians only to  take "their pay in pretty specimens, do  you, Moira?"

Seymour    surprised     Kluger,  sacking  platinum  for    the.   get-away  which Brewster had warned bdm was  imminent.       The   little   man  -was   so  preoccupied  with  his  delightful  task,  and in such fancied security, that the  sergeant l>ad a gun. to'his back before  he looked up  from the "booty,      Two  additional saddle horses were annexed  here,    which    Moira    aud     Seymour  mounted.  .

Bright With  Promise  With his astonishing declaration  of  the real richer-t ban-gold wealth of the  Glacier Creek placers, Seymour turn-  ary  father had  not  been .the first to.;  call  this  occasional associate of gold;  .a nuisance and to throw ir, away, not'  knowing what else to do with it.      In I  less than a generation, the gray ix-etal  had  emerged   from the lesser metals,  crept  past  silver and  then  raced  beyond gold into the limelight of popu-  j larity.     Whatever the u'tima^e fate pf  i the  ore  it  was   certain  to   remain   a  treasure-metal   until   long   after   Glacier Creek, had been mined out.  For his own satisfaction, as well as  hers, he outlined the  plot against the  Indians    as    he    snow    saw    it.    Phil  Brewster, he'believed,., had* recognized,  platinum   in   the   frog-gold   which   the,  Siwashes.      were      discarding.

'��������� -y  Probably tlie most important factor .leading to this, improvement are* tlie  higher prices now prevailing for grain, and which are on a much higher Ijeyel  thiiJi a year ago. While the aggregate yield is considerably smaller thanilast  year, Lhe value of the 1924 crop is estimated to be approximately $100,QOO,QjOO  greater, and the cost of harvesting, threshing and marketing has been lowfer.  Tin. net result is a substantial increase in the amount of money realized by  ih * 'farmers, although, unfortunately, it ia not as evenly distributed through  all districts of the West as might bo desired. ' y  The effect, however, i_* seen in a marked reduction in old outstanding  liabilities. Scores of municipalities are reporting the wiping off of long  overdue tax arrears and the ch-aning up of the municipal balance sheet.  Banks, mortgage and loan companies report the same good news, namely,  the -wiping out of old debts. Sluwly, perhaps, but. surety,-..all this money  finds its way back Into investment and productive channels. Capital is never  allowed to long-remain idle, but is put to work again as quickly as possible,  and all the more rapidly when there is a general renewal- of confidence and  a feeling of hopefulness throughout the country. v v    ���������>  Recent reports of trade activities reveal larger sales in many retail line's,  showing that, in addition to liquidating old indebtedness, f-trmers are-finding  themselves in a position to now make purchases of needed articles but which  they had to struggle along without during^the past few years: As accumulated stocks of goods held by merchants are thus" disposed of, and replenish-?  ment becomes necessary, a xe-*ina in industry "will i&IIo-v? and unemployment  decrease. Such a development is anticipated in all quarters during the coming year.  . Further evidence of the general improvement taking place throughout  Canada is found in the reports of the Department of Trade and Commerce.  These reveal a steady increase in the volume and value of exports of Canadian products over imports from other countries. The adverse balance of  trade of a few years ago has been overcome until now Canada's exports exceed its imports by over 5200,000,000. In other words, Canadians sold over  ������100,000,600 more of products to other countries this year than one year  ago and bought nearly $100,000,000 less.  Slowly but surely conditions are becoming more settled in Europe and  throughout the world, and, as has all along been contended in the articles appearing in this column, it is only through a restoration of the buying power  of foreign countries impoverished by the war, and a consequent- demand for  those products which Canada can supply on a'iarge scale, and for which we  must have foreign export markets, that prosperity can be established in this  Dominion. Canada produces far more than it can itself consume, dnd if  foreign markets are unable to absorb and pay good prices for our surplus  there must inevitably be stagnation-and depression here.  IL is especially gratifying, therefore, to learn that during the year Canada's exports to China virtually doubled; to Germany they nearly double; to  Japan they increased by $9,000,000; while to all parts of the British Empire  they increased by over $32,000,000 and by oyer $7,000,000 to the United States.  On the other hand, Canada bought ������86,000,000 less from the "United States,  thus improving dur trade balance with our neighbors to the south to the extent of ������93,000,000 in one year.  Those most conversant with international trade and commerce, and who  are well informed on the trend of conditions the world over, hold the view >  that this betterment during the latter half of-l&21vJwill continue well into the  new year, and that, as a result, the outlook is most promising for a continuance of good prices, increased industrial and commercial activity, and a consequent lessening of unemployment.  A general agricultural, commercial and industrial betterment is bound  to have a beneficial effect on the building trades, and forecasts appearing in  tr:-d<* journals throughout the country are favorable to a heavier building programme than for some years past. , -  From a purely Canadian standpoint, and. especially from a Western  standpoint, addltonal encouragement is to be found in the fact that in all  quarters it is anticipated that 1925 will prove to be a record year in immigration to this country. And let it be remembered that the most prosperous  era In Canada's history was during those year's when immigration was in full  -tide towards Canada's shores.  Lr-i  Canadians continue to hang on and work unremittingly during the  m-xt few years, as they have done for the past few years in the face of many  difficulties and disco-iragenients, aud they will reap the reward of the better  .inif-s which are undoubtedly ahead. have made sure there j. ,The 'President declared that_.he wa.13  train approaching from  either * satisfied "that a gradual improvement:  When approaching a grade crossing  bring the automobile tp a stop, then  look in both directions, listening in-  <.^i_lxj.   iu_   _nt-   ������'JU.������H1 OJ.

As nearly  as we; can tell by chemical analysis,  the artificial process ^duplicates the  natural decay of the manure Pile, and  the product cannot be distinguished  frtyii the original humus of the soil."  Farhiers have known for sonie time  that raw straw is worse'-'than useless  as a fertilizer. Sir John pointed out.  The Rothamsted workers placed this  observation on a quantitative basis.  however, and they found that crops  were actually dimiM^hgd.: when untreated straw was ploughed into the  ground.. "This is because the soil  organisms decompose the straw, but  in order to accomplish the breakdown,-  they absorb plant food, thereby robbing the grain, of some of its nourish-,  meutl" the scientist explained. "The  bacteria absorb nitrates in particular.  Appreciation of -this., fact suggested a  solution of the ^ifllcujty. 7 The  microbes aro fed their, nitrogen separately, they break up the straw. Treeing the original humus, and this can  then be put back into the ground."  The procedure adopted consists in  building stacks by mixing with each  ton of straw a few pounds of sulphate  of ammonia, relatively Inexpensive,  and calcium carbonate, cheaply secured as pondered limestone, marble or  cfialk. The ammonia supplies the  nitrogen factor, and the carbonate  prevents the mixture becoming so acid  that the bacteria will not work.  ''In from two tb three weeks, with  the English climate, we find that the  straw  has   returned   to   humus,"   Sir  John    stated.        "No    inoculation    is  accessary.      There are enough germs  .In tho dirt mixed with the straw to  -, start the process off.     When tlie resultant mixture was  tested  by using  It  to   fertilize  a  field  of  potatoes,   a  crop  was   obtained    practically    the  equivalent of the yield with barnyard  manure as tho added food.      Similar  reaults are obtained in using the pro-  'dttct  to  replenish  the  humus  of  the  Boll  In  between  successive  crops  of  , wheat.
