Walter Cooper was the  official chairman, but the official welcome was extended in creditable  fashion by Dorothy Payette in a  recitation "-designed for such an  occasion. The evening's menu was  well balanced as to literary and musical numbers, the striking feature in  the latter department being the three  piano duetts n which David Taylor  and Manuel Irving, Margaret Irving*  and Miiry Abbott, and Dorothy Har^  and Margaret Joy performed iii credit  able fashion, while the violin solo,  ���������'Melody In F," by Crawford Irving  revealed . exceptional talent for so  young a bow wiolder* Everyone is  complimenting the . teachers, Misses  Cherrington and Walsh, on the success  of the affair throughout, the programme of at least 30 numbers requir-  Reed Hurl, who has been working  in- Saskatchewan for the past few  months, arrived home at the end. of  the week. _  --fiMi^tAhc~e^3^c^ ^"  'nursing at Fernie fflp _5bcre:tim&  arrived^'on Saturday to,spend Ohri*.l>-,  mas with, her parents.

St.������Loe Strachey,  editor aud proprietor of the London  Spectator, in the course of a recent address to members of������ the Canadian  Club at Ottawa.  "A great part of the world wants to  pour Into Canada," he declared, referring t'o the building up of the country  "by immigration. "Pick out th'e best  bf it, and leave the dregs."  Conditions in Great Britain, were  satisfactory, and he wished to Impress this emphatically on the people of Canada. ���������''High taxation has  awakened us from a period of indolence and somnolence."  The   Modern   Locomotive  Throughout Canada on October 29 the question, "Have you voted yet?"  ���������will be asked not once but thousands of times. What the qttestloner will  mean, of course, is, have you exercised your franchise? That ls ;the superficial meaning, but is there not a much deeper, more significant meaning? Do  you really '"vote,'" 01^���������just mark a ballot paper? There is a vast difference  between the two.  'Admittedly it ia a duty every elector owes liis country to exercise his or  her franchise when called upon to do so., It is jus4 as rtiuch a duty as paying t^xes_ov obeying the law, even though ,no penalty is imposed for non-  fillment of the duty. -     . ..  Electors will be urged to "vote early," and this is good advice because  there are always people-who will leave the performance of this duty to the last  minute, while circumstances may force others to do so. Everyone who can  should, therefore, go to the polls as early as possible on election day. But  while making haste to the polling booth, do not be hasty in your act of voting.  To come back to the original question, are you really going to vote or  merely mark a ballot paper? - -.  Are' you going to vote Conservative, or Liberal, or Progressive because  your father or grandfather voted that way, or because some friend ar relative  is so voting, or because the majority of people in your neighborhood intend to  do so and you wish to be with the local majority? If so, you are not voting at  all, but just marking a ballot paper. "'  Or are you going to vote for a particular party solely because you voted  for it on previous.occasions and you propose to be "consistent?" Consistent  to what? A party name? A policy or policies which may have appealed to  your forebears or yourself in years gone by and which were designed to meet  then existing conditions but wliich do not necessarily have any force or bearing in 1925?      -  Perhaps; it is your intention to vote for a certain, candidate regardless of  the party or policy he supports solely because you know him and like Mm���������  although you may not "know him, you do not like the opposing candidate or  candidates.  Again, lt may be that you are influenced in your decision as to how your  ballot paper will be marked by some purely local or sectional consideration  which has little or no bearing on the welfare of Canada as a whole.  It may even be that some people have decided to mark their ballot papers  in a certain way with no more worthy, object in view than to '"kill the vote"  of somebody else they do not. like but who they understand intends to vote  the opposite way. ,  Not one of these are reasons supporting an intelligent marking of a ballot paper, nor are the motives actuating such marking ones worthy of an intelligent, patriotic Canadian citizen. Such conduct cannot honestly bo  dignified as "voting"; it is merely ballot paper marking, and, so far as Canada  is concerned, worse thn useless.  Stop and consider. On October 29 you are not voting primarily for a  candidate or a party; you are voting for Canada, or ought to he. Parties and  candidates are but ihe means to an end. but it is Canada, its welfare and pro-  gress which should be kept constantly in mind and guide the eye and hand  wlu*n marking a ballot paper in the secret and sacred precincts of the polling  booth.

Older Type Gave Longer Service With  but Needing Repairs  It is a curious discovery thsj,t the  greatest of the modern locomotives  render less efficient service in some  ways than, those of simpler construction yln use twenty-five years ago.  The refineinents and the greater hauling capacity have'oe^a attained at the  expense of more frequent repairs and  longer periods out of commission. The  older type was available for srevlce  about seventy-five, per cent, of the  time; the newer for . only forty-five  per cent. So it often is with men.  The two hundred and fifty-five pounder who can toss a flour barrel into a  wagon may have less endtirance than  the wiry fallow of the stringy muscles  and squash-stem neck.-���������Youth's Companion.

By enriching the  blood  with  Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills the starved nerves are. supplied with just the elements they need.  This   Is    proved   by the experience of  Mrs. J. E. Dadson,    12th    Ave.,    east,  Vancouver,    B.C.,    who says.���������"About  three years ago I became very weak  and nervous.    I had. pains in my side  and back, and also suffered from frequent pains in tho back   of   my   head  and neck.     I was hardly   able   to   do  anything  about the  house.      I would  wake with a start.In the night and my  heart  would flutter so that it almost  choked  me.       I   tried   much   doctor's  medicine, but it did me no permanent  good.      One day I read about "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and decided to give  them  a  trial.      These pills produced  such  a  beneficial   change  in  a  short  time that I kept taking them until I  had used a dozen boxes.     By this time  there was such an improvement In my  condition that friends would ask me  what  I  was   taking,  and  of  course  I  was* only too pleased to tell  them it  was Dr. Williams' Pink Pills*.      I am  now feeling like a new person and am  doing my own housework.     We would  not now bo wiihout Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills in the house."  . You can -**ot. those pills from your  druggist, or by mall at. 50 cents a box  from Tho "Dr, Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville, ������.>nt.

Visits Balmoral Every Year  Matron   of   London    Hospital    Spends  7Fortnight   With   Queen   Mary  No autumn, passes without the paying of a long visit by Miss Agnes Key-  ser to the King and Queen at Balmoral. She stays., for a fortnight or  thereabouts, and accompanies the  Queen on moat of her .walks, iii the  ground, as veil as longer expeditions.  No other woman subject of ajoy rank  is honored by the Sovereigns in just  that way; she can truly be said to be  regarded as one of the family'during'  her stay. For many years Miss Key-  ser, or, as ahe prefers to be called,  "Sister ii Agnos " has been matron of  the King Edward VII. Hospital for  Officers * in Grosvenor Crescent, London. When Prince George had to  undergo an operation three years ago  it was there he went and when members of the royal household require'to  go to hospital they choose that managed by Sister Agnes.  - "* How Trade  Increases  Canadian trade increased during  August nearly sixty millions,^.as compared with August, 19247 A'summary  issued by the department of customs  shows that tlie grand "total/of exports  and imports, including foreign merchandise exported, was ?194,3S8,28S  last month and in August, 1924. was  $136,791,203.

"This is a  matter of great importance and extreme difficulty, and It is not being  adequately taken care-of,.", he said.   -  '"'.The loss from, this disease on" the  prkiries is tremendous each year,"'and  there is no method of combatting it  by chemicals or by cultivation. --.The  only way to overcome the difficulty, he  said, Was to propagate a rust-resisting strain, which-would at the same  time have characteristics of high yield,  early maturity and drought resistance.  $jpr.' Saunders pointed out that  there are seventeen kinds of stem rust  bfi the prairies. These are found in  different districts, though each district may be attacked by several varieties bt rust. To fully study, the dis-  ease, and to originate rust-resisting  varieties of wheat, it is necessary that  htany experimental stations be established throughout the three prairie  provinces. Only by the expenditure  of a vast~sum of money would tho de-  Sired results-be obtainod.  yfThe fampus cerealis't ii "best known  ail the joriginator of JVIarauis,,,,wheat,  which is so popular on the prairies  tHat more than-, eighty-five per cent, of  tbe.., ,yrti.e������t.,,.therg. _-,is.... $f ,.this���������;y a,fiety.

Producing Clean Milk   ' 7   #  Guarding Against Alt Sources of Con-.  tanii nation In Milking Process'  A clean, pail, a colored, pall, and* .a  clean ' animal are the big things "in  producing clean/ milk. All other  so.urces of contamination arc of lesser  importance, states the Dominion agricultural bacteriologist In his report  for 1924. To injure clean milk the  pails should be washed and scoured,  and, if possible, treated "with steam,  and care taken to have no dirt fall  from the cow into the milk. The report, which is distributed free by the  publications branch; department of agriculture, Ottawa, describes in detail  the methods of insuring complete  cleanliness. Manure should be moved out of the reach of the animals, the  cows should be regularly brushed, the  milker's hands must be carefully wash_  ed, and the fpremilk should be discarded.      ?    ������.   ,    .

On .Conclusion of this,, the  sixthyannual tour of the car, the officials In charge report that as a consequence of persistent education of the  western settler, tree plaating was  forging ahead as at no previous period.  Already 80,000.000 trees have been  planted by 45,000 farmers as shelter  belts, with incredibly great benefits in  larger production and more contented  home life.  The early belief that trees could not  be succes^sfuly grown "on the prairies  has been thoroughly dissipated by the  results attained by the forestry branch  of the department of anterior during  the past 25 j-ears ln distributing free  to farmers and others interested In  promoting forest" growth trees, seedlings and cuttings; for planting on their  property, either as windbreaks or for  ornamental purposes. .

Mr, A. G. Taylor, in his bulletin on "Turkej-s and  Their Management." published by the  Dominion department of agriculture,  advises that whenever possible turkeys should be sent to market dressed. Before killing, the birds should'  be starved during twenty four hours  and during that time given all the  frefth water they will drink, which aids  in cleansing the intestines and also  Improves the flavor of the llesh. Dressed birds, Mj\ Taylor adds, should be  thoroughly cooled before packing.  Car*" should be taken to arrange Ihom  firmly In the packing cases to prevent  moving while In transit.

Local Members  Budbret Speech  (Vancouver Province.]  Forest protection, soldier settlement and the need for fruit farmers  to take up mixed farming in  addition to their present operations  were the chief subjects dealt with  hy Mr. Fred liister, Conservative  member for Creston, in a speech  sharply criticizing government  policy, during the debate on the  budget on Tuesday afternoon.  That the forestry department  was inefficient in the matter of  coping with forest fires was the  conviction of Mr. -Lister, who said  he had never known the department  to pat a fire *but successfully.  "Get a fire warden, irrespective  of his political beliefs,'* he said  "Inefficient men are sent ont to  deal with the fires. The only  qualification needed is to be a good  Liberal.  Government voices-���������No, no.  MrC  ICaster���������Yes.    There   is , no  concerted effort made at once to get  the 'fire under control.    A few men  rainble up and watch it get bigger.  - Then someone interested,  who has  some timber there,  Rets  busy, and  the. warden sends a bunch   of men  when it  is too late.    The  Liberal  storekeeper and the Liberal garage  man get a rakeoff.  He suggested that more efficient  fire wardens be appointed, regardless of their political color, and that  sufficient men be put on immediately a fire breaks ont. Most of the  fires in his district were caused  through lightning.  On the question of soldier settlement, Mr. Lister dealt with the  Merville block and with the Creston  or improvements, no * adjustment of course  could be made, but, where a man  did his own improvements, they  cost him Just ss much as if the  board had done them. He got  what was known as the "progress  loan" on these improvements, and  his contention now was that, if the  work done by the hoard was more  than the actual value of the im  provements to thp land,' then liis  improvements- should have been  appraised, any difference being  credited to him, as a charge on the  purchase price df the land. *  'The point is this/* he said:  "Suppose a raai. got $4000 or $5000  worth of improvements from the  board* and gois these improvements  reappraised.    He got a substantial  c -  t    -,>-*     --  *>���������>������'- "-��������� " -:3* T'.? c *  With the Best of Good Wished io^���������_t_y^stmas  Cheer, Health, Peace and  Plenty  throughout the NewYesfcr  'out.* but the man who did his own  work got t nothings These men  should have something done for  them, or-they won't be able to bear  the burden that is on them.  "The Creston settlement should  be considered,*" - said Mr. liister,  'from the point of view of what  the government intended of it and  what it is today. A great deal of  money has been spent on wrong  administration. The report of the  board is misleading as to the num  ber of men on the Camp Lister  area, in that it gives the number of  .settlers as including' those who  lived in the Canyon City area, who  purchased land from the board to  enlarge their estates and  were not  1 returned men at all. There are not  more than thirty returned men  there, and, unless some adjustment  is made soon. thfere will not he I  many left. The storm of lastDe-  ������ember destroyed many of the  young trees and put many of *,hem  back four years." Some of the men  have received a bill for $800 from  the department* tliey haven't got  eight hundred cents* The minister  of lands and the minister of agri  culture were down there, and if  they admitted what they know as  facts they would admit the need for  adjustment.  "I shall offer. the government a  constructive idea/Vsaid Mr. Lister,  speaking of the Camp Lister area.  "Let them appoint a man from the  Creston area, and -let -us appoint a  man, and, with the help of a third.  appointed by the men, they can tell  us what the places are worth today.  If this is done, you will have acted  fairly by the men."  .,''. After last December's experience  it was apparent that "frait growers  should not have  all their eggs  in  ehe   one   basket,"    remarked   Mr.  Lister.    .'*I would advise  the minister of agriculture to educate these  people to go more into'mixed fanning.    It may be necessary to assist  them, even by  supplying stock and  in the construction of a creamery.  **We at Camp   Lister   can   ship  cream and pay duty off $1 per five  gallons ou itTinto the United States  and make, more than if we ship it  to   Nelson,?*   he   remarked. . "We  can also pay duty   ou   eggs,   send  them to the States aud get more  thai) if we sold   them   in   Canada.  There ia   something   wrong   when  that is the case. -  "I went tc Kimberiey during the  -campaign    for    the   late   federal  electioiia,"' remarked Mr. Lister, in  conclusion*. "I fbtorid men bf the  public 'works department of British  Columbia "building cement sidewalks. - They said they were built  so that Dr. King minister of public  works, could gfe% in again. These  cement side walks should not have  been put'in  near zero."  with tne thermometer  Institute Of fared  First Aid Course  i7 *?ft:������7'V.-!-b.  ine.made  '*.*������������������ - '__������r ���������'���������-*���������-������.���������" "���������  *"'Sa|**  Loyal flrangi Lodpju. 2095  MeeteTHIRDTHmtSDAT of  each month at Mercantile  Hall.

Pierrot stood without moving, lie  watched them as they disappeared  into the forest, Nepeese still a few  steps  ahead  of  McTaggart.       Out  of  his  breast rose a  sharp "breath.

Sho could see that  Pierrot and the Factor had been talking about, something ihat had not heen  pleasant to her rather. Ills face- was  strained.

"His arms were about her like bands  jaws were set. but th** eyes flared up  with i*leasu."e when ho saw her.      Sho  knew what ir. was about.      The Factor  from   I-a'tc   .Sain   had  his        answer        oi  ly. "Pierrot said you would have an  answer .for'me. But I need no answer  now.      You are mine!      Mine!"..  She'.'gave a cry. It was n gasping,  broken cry. His arms were about her  like bands of iron, crushing her slender body, shutting off her breath, turning the world almost black for her.  She could neither struggle nor cry  out. Sho felt the hot passion of his  lips on her face, heard his voice���������and  then came a moment's freedom, and  air into her strangled lungs. Pierrot was calling! He had come to the  fork in the trail, and he was calling  the Willow's name!  McTaggart's hot hand came over  her mouth.  "Don't answer," she heard him say.  , Strength-r-anger���������-hatred flared up  in her, and fiercely she struck the  hand down. '" Something in'her wonderful eyes held McTaggart. They  blazed into his very soul.  "Bete noir!" she panted at him, freeing herself from the last touch of his  hands. "Beast���������black beast!" Her  voice trembled, and her face flamed.  "See-���������1 came to show you my pool���������-  and tell you what you wanted to hear  ���������and you���������-you���������have crushed me like  a beast���������like a great rock-������������������ See!  down there���������it is my pool'"  She had not planned it like this.  She liad intended to be smiling, even  laughing, at this moment. But McTaggart had spoiled them���������her carefully made plans! And yet, as she  pointed, the Factor from Lac Bain had  looked for an instant over the edge  of the chasm. And then she laughed���������laughed as she. gave him a sudden shove from behind.  "And that is my answer, M'sicur lo  Facteur from Lac Bain!"    she    cried  tauntingly    as    he  plunged headlong  into tho  deep pool  between  (lie rock,  walls.  chasm, gleaming in the sun; her eyes  were laughing while her lipa taunted  him;, he could see the flash of her  white teeth.  "Bast!      Beast!"  He began swimming, still looking  up at her. It wasra hundred yards  down - the slow-going current to the  beach of shale where;, he could climb  out, and a half of that distance^he  followed him, laughing and. taunting  him, and flinging down sticks and pebbles. He noted that none of the  sticks or stones was large enough'to.  hurt him. When at last his" feet  touched bottom, she was gone'.  ' Swiftly Nepeese ran back over the  trail, and almost into Pierrot's, arms.  She was panting and laughing when  for a moment sho stopped. ,    .���������-  "I hare given, himthe answer, ^Noo-  tawe! He is in the pool." 7 7 \-  Nepeese was out of breath when  she reached the cabin. Baree, fa.st-  ened to a table-leg by a babiche thong,  heard her pause for a moment at the  door. Th-3n ehe entered and came  straight to him. During the half-  hour of her absence Baree had scarcely moved. :    >  Her touchrthrilled him. tt sent little, throbs through..his -body, a tremulous quivering which she could feel  and which deepened the glow in her  eyes. Gently her hand stroked his"  head and his back.^ It seemed to Nepeese that he did not breathe- Under  the,caress of her hand his eyes closed.  In another moment she was talking to  him, and at the sound of her voice his  eyes  shot open.

Faulty   Diet  Largely - Responsible   For  This Aliment  Much* public interest has manifest-,  ed itself regarding the cause  of cancer, but few people mentally digest the  fact  that   to  primitive  races   leading  primitive lives  cancer    is    unknown.  With this evidence of the disease being confined to civilization Is supplemented the knowledge of thousands of  cancer patients having been restored  to normal health by the administration  of    certain ' assimilable  potash salts'.  Dr. Robert Bell, M.D., F.R.C.P.S., etc.,  for many years the leading cancer surgeon of Europe, promptly relinquished  ���������the estremeiy lucrative   part    of   his  practice whan he demonstrated beyond  dispute that cancer is a blood disease  resulting from refined and faulty diet  "which deprives its consumers of the  vital principles essential to disease resistance and health preservation.      In  reeent  years,   the   English" press  has  frequently    drawn    attention    to    the  phenominal     success    attending    Dr.  Bell's purely medicinal    and    dietetic  treatment of the deadly    disease,    in  conjunction with hygienic precaution.  A    letter    from   Barton    Scammell,  M.S.C.I.,   published   in   London *Ed?.,  Truth;  26 August,, .1925.  contains the  following   statements which profound  experience has proved of vital importance   to   many   cancer victims: "The  radio-active alkali, potash, is the great  oxygen-attracting element In the body.  It forms over 70 per cent, of the mineral ash of the red corpuscles ln the  blood.       Owing to  certain defects: in  diet and the preparation of food, the  modem civilized human being suffers  from "potassium starvation," and the  increase  of 'cancer Is  a  corollary of  this state of affairs.     The great work  of the late.Dr. Forbes Ross finds an  "explanation In this  discovery, also-^lt  explains  the   success   secured  in   the  treatment of cancer with the administration  of  attentuated     solutions     of  citrate and radio-phosphate of potash  ���������which restore the recuperative pow-  of the blood, thus causing the cancer  to retrograde and disappear."  If fathers and mothers of the Great  Northwest would abandon their white  flour, white sugar and; other "foodless  foods"  from  which    "all    health-preserving potash has been refined, and  adopt whole wheat bread, wholesome  brown sugar and such "roughage" in  their diet aa is necessary to avert the  now universal constipation, which  is  the forerunier of every c������se of cancer, much will he done to prevent the  Ini crease of this self-inflicted, disease.  r~"So long, however, "as onljr/ the eye  and vitiated palate are pleased while  the digestive organs are  overworked  until" 111-health, disease and premature  death terminate the life of each follower of the existing diet of a civilized world, the death rates from cancer   and    other self-inflicted diseases  will continue to rapidly Increase. Ctyi-  cei*    and    a    normally  healthy blood  stream aro imompatlble,   but   if   we  persist in indulging In food poisoning  for  the  sake of the  deceptive  auto?  Intoxication it produces before striking us  in  our weakest spot, the inevitable penalty exacted by outraged  Nature must be paid  in  duo time.���������  Charles Walter, 51 Brunswick Avenue,  Canada.  ^its ar\ri4-i"eYT/r*1'*jri f**    -rvr -rtrr r*t  -r\  \-  Horizontal  1���������A liquid measure.  6���������Confusion.-  8���������Decorate.  13���������The. upper part of. a.  city.  15���������One    who   throws a  ball Into the air.  16���������Conjunction.  17���������Lines dividing a circle into halves.  20���������Exist.  21���������Dress up.  23���������Bind.  24���������Rodent.  25-^-Weapon.  26^���������Organs of hearing.  28���������-Wash'.es.  30���������Intrepid.
