The picture Was suggested dy Hugh.  Wiley's^Saturday Evening Post" sto  ry, * 'The Spoils of the War,'* and was  directed by Edward Sutherland, under  the editorial supervision of Garnett  Weston.

"Miss Violet Morrow, as Virginia..  sister of Mabel, and Miss Clara Morrow, as Mrs. Berrington Bridger,  mother of- the two .girls, are to be  complimented on the pleasing portrayal or their respective characters. Virginia was charming in both appearance  and manner in her love scenes with  Jerry Arnold. Representing an elderly  1 idy Miss Clara Morrow had a difficult  piece' of characterization which she  handled witb outstanding ability.  Miss Lily Lewis, waa inimitable as  Mary Ann,, the smilingly inquisitive  servant girl. The part of Mary Ann is  intended to be the hit of the comedy  and Miss Lewis certainly made most  of the opportunity given ner. Mary  Ann has the first scene and .at once  pronounced* the play a success by  winning with* her bright jsmile"and  -witty manner the sympathy and inter-  e -t of everyone in the audience.  With    comparatively   mi nor   parts  Miss Isobel Burnett hs Zuleika, Victor  Mawson as Elmer Flannel, W. Trus-  ottas McNuit, and Harry Smith as  Abou  the Turk, made an interesting  group,  each   parts being    creditably  taken.     Mr. Truscott is always   well  received  by  Creston  patrons* of amateur performances and his" past experience showed to good effect throughout  the evening.     Possibly some of   tbe  I other "players ^ who    are   inclined   to  hurry their scenes would do well to  copy Mr. Truscott's easy manner.  Vic.Mawson handled a semi-juvanile  part with a surprising appearance of  ease and naturalness, arid is -to be  complimented  upon  the clearness  A __ party - from". here took in the  church concert at Canyon on Friday  night, making the.^trip by auto.*- They  were Myrtle Wickholm, Esther Nelson  'A.

The stage was  pleasingly furnished and decorated,  makeups were excellent in every case,  and the costumes attractive throughout.  The    musical    features   were' well  chosen and formed an interesting part {Vsteners.  of the evening's entertainment,   the  usual-   tiresome   wait    between "acts  being������ntirely eliminated.  '���������Safety   First" has in   itself no particular merit to recommend it being  neither   better   nor  worse   than   the  average amateur comedy.    It abounds  in a succession  of amusing situations  which, however, required skilful handing to retain interest.   Tiinity Church  players; without exception, are to be  complimented, on the fact that they  made  the   most   of   every  situation,  retained the interest of their audience  throughout the entire evening,   and  succeeded in what is the acid test of a  comedy presentstiori^-they kept  the  crowd laughing.

Mr. Harkness, freshly magnificent, tapped his fingers, on the  spread of the silk counter, encompassed each of the young -women behind it  with a friendly condescending glance,  and said to them collectively:  '"Good Morning!"   .,";.".  There was much rivalry among tho  servitors of satin as ta which of them  first would see' "Good Morning" down  the aisle and announce his .coming.  And If, by any chance, "Mr. Good  Morning's" eyes rested, a little longer  one one rouged face than on another  among liis sil k counter nympha, why,  there waa a full day's scandal ahead..  It happened ( often; -- too often,  Joanna herself had been 'bothered a  bit of late, because "Good Morning"  had fallen Into the habit of looking  at litn*. moro and more speculatively.  The morning befdro* she had decided  she could not Ignore that meaningful  look hi the buyer's eyes any longer,  and had'UUed her elilu at him.' She  whb prppalred to do it again.

Mr. Harkness had no mornings for  any of them'r He walked directly to  where Joanna stood and stopped,  abruptly facing her. There was  neither smirk nor smile in his half  closed eyes. Once he had interrupted an unfortunate shoplifter, and had  looked at the trembling young woman  In just that manner..  "Miss Joanna," he said, his words  sharp and evenly cold, "Have the  goodness to go "at "once to Mr. Gray  don's office, "You are to be spoken to,  by Mr. Graydon himself.

And she stored into the  fatuous face of the. man across the  counter as if he had woven her in some  evil spell. - Y "  Mr. Harkness-was,'no longer, "Mr.  Good Morning." -He was--an ogre;  the serf of a. tyrant and " hearer. of a  tyrant's summons.,./.

For, so far as the record, was re-  membered at the silk counter," no  other girl employee had been summoned Into the awful presence ot  the "Old Man." It augured* but one  thing. That thing shaped itself in  Joanna's mind almost Instantly. She  had offended a customer; unconsciously, perhaps, but offended one'; .and an  important customer; one who had the  ear of the mysterious, unapproachable,  thoroughly "unknown "Old Man;"; And  that'meant, dismissal! 77������������������������������������ ; -^y  The "buyer's fingers began to* drum,  warningly, on the "counter. A summons to the office brooked no delays.  He didn't know what nor how the Qhi  Man so much as knew the name of  the unimportant Joanna who, despite  that gold brown hair and the captivating poses, was .after ail, only "Num-  ���������ber 27 in the silks." Graydon, owner of the city's largest department  store, was not the sort who knew certain ones of his hundreds of young women clerks. hy name. - A few of the  managers were that sort; not Graydon.  "I believe I said, 'at once,' MI3S  Twenty-seven," Mr. Harkness repeated, icily. "I should advise that you  interpret that as meaning "now I*".  And then he. added the afterstihg that  brought quiver to the grotesquely scarlet lips; the quiver that the girlbit  at and repulsed viciously; "-"I fancy.  Miss, that the other young ladies will  conduct the counter satisfactory until  you return from your interview !"-  Joanna could have choked him for  'that. Even in her trouble she remembered the different tone of him  and the different light in the eyes of  him on the morning of the day before  when she flushed under his" fawning.  He knew, she reflected, that she was  going up -to the taunting dignity of  being dismissed by the owner. His  code demanded that he have no consideration for even such a one as she,  if she were to go into the - owner's  black book.     But Joanna was Joanna.  "So sweet of Mr. Graydon to send  you along for me!" she murmured.  "We were discussing you just last  evening, you kribw-^-Mr. Graydon  and I. I was telling him -what a nice  little boy you are���������and shall-you run  along now, or. shall ypu show me the  way?"  If she was going to be "discharged  she'd leave behind her" something to  be remembered by!

A TIRED FEELING  IN SPRINGTIME  With the coming of April, Western Canada will be away to a good start  on another year of development and progress which, from present indications,  promises to surpass any year since before the war. There .are tangible and  53olid reasons providing a basis for this belief and offering encouragement  to all Canadians who have a firm conviction of the future greatness vof their  country. , v~  The. financial statement of the C.P.R. for 1925 was the teki. one for the  past nine years, and, after paying all expenses of operation, debenture interest and a ten per cent, dividend, provided an ample surplus of some millions  of dollars. The financial showing bf the Canadian National Railways was  particularly gratifying and resulted in the largest operating surplus yet recorded, and bringing within measurable distance the time-when the National's  earnings will he sufficient to also take care of all interest charges.  From the position occupied a few years ago of being seventh among ihe  nations as an exporting country on a per capita ~basis, Canada last year  achieved second place, and at no time since war activity ceased has industry  and trade generally been so promising or expanding so satisfactory. All the  annual meetings of Canada's largest corporations and institutions have heard  the same story of betterment taking place last year, and with even brighter  prospects for 1926. - Z'" 7 y  During the past two weeks the "Western Grain Pools paid out over $37,000,-  000 in cold cash to the farmers of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta as a  further payment on account of their 1925 crops, a truly, enormous sum qf  money to be placed in circulation right at the outset of a new season's  operations.  This huge second payment helps one to realize the fact that the cash  value of wheat delivered by farmers at country stations during the four .and  one-half months, August 1 to December 5,1925. was-$338,800,000, or an average of $1,300 per farm, with 55,000,000 bushels still-to be marketed. Not  only is this a new record, hut these 4 V^ months of 1925 beat the whole of the  preceding twelve months by no less than $50,000,000, and was $35,000,000  greater than 1923-24, $80,000,000 greater than 1922-23, and $130,000,000 greater  than 1921-22. -  During 1925 a larger acreage of farm lands was sold in the three Western  Provinces than in the three years of 1922, 1923 and 1924 combined, and practically all direct to land users. In additioDrto the 673,062 acres thus sold by  companies, homestead entrie's totalled 635,840 acres, or a total, of 1,308,902  acres taken up last year. .;..,������ ...7-;.-'      ���������xZx-k:'kr~x  These are but a few of the basic reasons for the increased development  and progress whieh~may be confidently expected this year. The effect is already noticeable in increased building activity all over the West which now  promises to surpass anything witnessed for.a considerable number of years  past, and"in.the expanding operations of most big industrial concerns in the  East. "���������.." .  Another evidence that new created wealth will find its way into channels  leading to development and greater business activity is found in the fact that  during the past couple of years the indebtedness of Western municipalities,  school districts, and other public and semi-public bodies has been largely decreased, and new wealth instead of going to liquidate old debts will be available for new undertakings and progressive development. Ih Saskatchewan, for  example,-the "Local Government Board report for 1925 states that many .municipalities and school districts have cleared themselves of all debenture indebtedness so that the tax rate can now be materially reduced and all~current  revenues devoted to constructive and maintenance purposes. it is further  stated that the amount of debenture indebtedness repaid "during 1925 far exceeded the amount of all new capital loans made. . 7 -  With the opening of spring activities in all branches of human endeavor  in Canada, and particularly in the West, the situation is most hopeful and  more encouraging than for a decade. Nothing in the nature of the old-time  booms is looked for. and certainly-is not to be desired, but it is quite apparent  that the time is opportune for the progressive, far-seeing man, whether on the  farm or in* town or city, to draw away from the more conservative policy  which tht past few years, and generally unsettled conditions, forced upon  him and move "forward in a larger, more vigorous policy. The opportunities  which   192-j  offers  should not  be  ignored nor  neglected.  Not Sick, But Not Up to the Mark  ���������You- Need the.

Why Torture Yourself?  - As we get along in .life most of us",  experience rheumatic and other pains,  consoling ourselves with the knowledge we are no exceptions to the general rule. Instead'Of carefully investigating the cause of "the, pain, as we  naturally would do if a horse, cow or  pet dog were the sufferer, we grin and  bear it or, if it gets too bad, get something to relieve, it. for a- while." If,  however, we candidly admit the fact  that our own pains and ninety-five per  cent, "of those of other people are  caused by the wrong foods we and they"  are regularly eating, whether * we require food or not, an enormous amount  of suffering could be avoided by mending our habits.  Man only, out of all- creation, destroys, by cooking and refinement, his  food values which, if retained as originally intended, would preserve his.  disease resistance to the end of long,  healthy and enjoyable life. No man  or. woman whose diet Is constantly  robbed by refinement ,and cooking of  those potassium and other salts, lavishly provided-by Nature, can hope or  expect to remain in normal health.  Most of the deadly diseases, including  cancer and rheumatism, are caused by  potassium deficiency in the sufferers'  systems, and the faet that, in advanced cases of the two named maladies,  it.is almost impossible to detect-differences between blood samples from  each under a high powered microscope,  emphasizes the original cause of both.  Yet, In apparently hopeless cases of  .both these and other diseases" of similar origin, if the potassium deficiency  be remedied the .malady will retrograde until, with the elimination ot  poisons from the blood under home  treatment and sane diet, those who  will thus help - themselves can win  back health and prolong their lives.  .Threatened by rheumatism with crlp-  plied and curtailed existence, the writer/now past his sixtieth birthday, acted on the above simple directions and,  freed from pain and fully enjoying life,  heartily wishes a like relief to other  sufferers.

He does-not see,any hope in the "new  diplomacy'-'. For that xnay be just as -  dishonest as the old. .Nor does ^ he  linger over the distribution of "war  guilt," though he belieVes that Prussian militarism was' the precipitating  agent for the debacle".

In the  long run there can be no security In  Europe without a Germany. that' is  genuinely- working for peace, but it remains for the victors to start on the  better way and give Germany a chance  to join:  "The lesson o*������ European history is  so plain. It is that no enduring security can be found in competing armaments and in separate alliances;  there is no security for any power unless it be a security in which its  neighbors have an equal share."

No more  could Be said of *������he potentiality claimed for this new variety than that it  will probably have a stimulation as  great .as when Marquis wheat was  first developed and made available to  farmers.  A decade, and a half ago Marquis  wheat,, which was produced after long  years of experimenting upon demands  for an earlier maturing wheat, proceeded to revolutionize grain growing  in the prairie provinces, and has been  an outstanding factor in . developing  that area into one of the great granaries of the world. Marquis wheat  reduced the period between seeding  and harvesting from 120 to 110 days,  which meant that wheat- of the finest  ture_ at a . Still earlier period. Garnet wheat would appear to be the desideratum. It- reduces the period t>e-  ttweeri sowing and harvesting by another ten days, or to ^>ne hundred daj-3,  and is said to be in every respect the  equal of Marquis.  The development of Garnet wheat  has been the same patient, painstaking work, as characterized Marquis.  Experimenting continued from the  point where Dr. Saunders, the discoverer of Marquis, left off, his researches  being extensively utilized.

All farmers growing wheat on a large scale, by devoting half their, wheat Jand to  Garnet,  will   probably  be  able  to .save  them-  j.selves the cost of at least one binder,  i.t being possible to cut and stook the  Garnet before the Marquis > wheat will  annual loss sustained in the last days'be ready..

Garnet is stated to be among  the highest milling and baking wheats,  a fact satisfactorily established by"  tests extending over a period of years.  *Up make absolutely certain on this"  point, however, final milling tests are  being carried out at Minneapolis. Providing these are satisfactory, the Federal Government will proceed to distribute the Garnet seed. There is In  existence about 12,000 bushels, and It  3vill be distributed in very small lots,  probably ten bushels to a farmer.
