Fernie is   a  fine   little   town   with   its  paved streets; we were tempted to call  on Chief Anderson, but figured he had  enough to do, as the population appeared  numerous and unemployed.   Cranbrook,  too, is a well paved and. orderly town,  but as we were out to see the country  more especially, we  pushed   on   within  ten miles of Yahk, where  we   found   a  natural camping place by the roadside,  the road, railway- and river running side  by side at this point.   tVe   had   had  a  wonderful day passing by mountains two  miles high, over rGads that were perfect  though often cut into the breast  of the  mountainside/ while down belbw could  be seen the narrow   ribbon   of   railway  strung with jewels of  lakes   and  rivers.  We   awoke   the   next-   naornin0   almost  frozen,   and   cooked   our   breakfast   in  grand solitude.   By noon we had reached our business   objective, Canyon,   and  in the evening pulled on   to   Creston   to  visit Mr   "Jim?   Murphy   and   family,  from whom we received a royal welcome.  So full was   "Jim"   of   Creston   Valley  opportunities    and   prospects,  and  so  ready to impart   information   that   the  good wife had much to do to get him to  stop   talking   long  enough   to   eat  his  supper, the main item of which, to us,  a sumptuous strawberry shortcrke.   We  were readily induced to stay overnight,  and enjoyed in full the   opportunity  to  look ^over  different  farms   (ranches   I  beiieve they are called),   and   while   we  wondered how one could  make a living  on   such   a   small   holding   (ten   acres,  usually), it was firmly impressed on us  by what we saw   that   not   only   could  ^������._C-*������      t^������ _**   ���������#��������� f_#l+   +\. tr*mt   nv. iAt>r.rl   IS _\_*.    ^3 _t.������*���������*<*������*     .- _-������  _������ _ _-_^ J    VMV   ������������������M-V      _-*v^     *^*.jvrjr %_^v.

We joined a gooseberry-picking  "bee" after supper, where we learnt and  "felt' a few points about the game first  hand; in fact, we felt the points for  days after. Before leaving Creston the  next mo ning, we visited other old-time  Poplar Ridgi_es, and were made to feel  like crimi als sneaking away, so warm  were their invitations-to stay a few days.  However, we proceeded on our way  along the trail of the previous day, returning to Cranbrook, on to Fort Steele  have seen pictures, of it, it must be seen \  to realize what scenic beauty really _.n 1  One   of  the   most   interesting  accounts of   a trip from   central  Alberta via the Crows Nest routeland Fairmont Hot Springs,  a little  be-  to Creston and   return   over  the I yond which we made camp for the night  Banff-Windermere road has been  written to the Red Deer, Alberta,  Advocate, by J. W. Christian,  who made a visit with Erickson  friends early in the summer, doing his travelling in company  with Ralph and Geo. Wilkins and  Telford Kirkland, also of Red  Deer. In writing his" home town  paper Mr. Christian says, in part:  To the Editor of the Advocate:  Dear Sir:���������We habitually associate  "cheap" with * nasty" and not without  cause, so I should like to bring to your  notice and the notice of my fellow  fartnars an experience which I had  recently that was cheap but altogether  delightful. I speak of a trip by car to  Creston, B.C., and points in the Kootenay, and other National Parks, which  four of us took and enjoyed together.  Now, most of our farmers are more or  foss fed-up with things today and are  sadly in need of a rest and change of  scenery, but suggest such a thing to the  majority and you will get laughed at for  your pains, simply because it seems an  impossibility nnder present conditions  on account of lack of funds. I thought  the same way, but was forced to take a  business trip to Canyon and tried to use  the occasion as a holiday, too, with the  result that I am amazed with the wealth  of scenery to be had and the cheapness  and convenience of travel by car.  The cost being the deriding factor,  maybe, if anyone contemplating a trip,  I will mention that first. We travelled  over _ ,100 miles and the cost for gas, oil  and camping privileges was $22.4S. We  were away eight days, which works out  af 70c. per head per day, plus food sufficient of which we took with us, only  b jying bread and milk as required. We  left Red Deer at 10 a.m. one Saturday, and reached High River that night,  camping in a nice little public camp near  the entrance to the tcwn. We had  spent several hours in Turner Valley,  which is a sight one should not miss;  the length and breadth of tho valley was  something we had not expected, and tho  numerous derricks and noisy flares made  an inferno secno not easily forgotron,  while the heat, light nnd energy being  wnated filled ono with helploss regret.  From nigh River to Macleod in tho rain,  but the thing that (.truck us moat waa  tho backwardnea.i of tho cropa and the  forward noun of the woods; for rnilea on  end the roadsldon nnd ditches aro n maas  or Canada thistle, while wholo Holds of  slinliwcck nro not uncommon.  Wo ii pent moMt of Sunday in Maclood  viHitlnie relatives, movinjc on the next  morn Inn hy way of Pinch.-r Crook,  B a inn or (rmtiA Tor 3<n coal mlnrw);  I -tunic, with its truKic i-li.j..   and   hurled  by   the   roadside.    Here   at   least   one  member of the party was  made a  trifle  uneasy by the sniffing of a bear  around  the tent, but oh investigation  it  proved  to be a dog.    From there we were subjected to   beautiful   vistas,   stupendous  sights and marvelous natural architecture     until    our   senses   fairly   reeled.  Sinclair    Canyon,     that     magnificient  western portal of the Rockies, compelled  us to stop and take several deep breaths  and   the   inevitable    picture.   Passing  through, one follows   a   winding   valley  with towering peaks on either hand, the  turbulent  Sinclair River   by   the   road  making a musical setting that could not  be improved upon.   Registering  at   the  official gateway to Kootenay   Park,  we  visited the Radium Hot Springs with its  baths and swimming pool  at  a natural  temperature of over 100 degrees;   proceeding   by   Sin lair   Pass   we   saw   a  beautiful   little   lake   called   Olive   on  account of  its   color.   Now   one drops  down     to   Kootenay   Valley   in   great  sweeps, affording some wonberful panoramic views.   Then by a straight road  between tall and   slender   pines,   which  may tempt one to try a little speeding,  the roads   are   so   fine;    however,   the  speed limit ia 30 m.p.h.* in the parks, and  4'red coats" are on patrol   at   all   times.  Many miles of road   has  oiled  surface.  The road from Firlanda to Castle is full  of interest, but undoubtedly Marble  Canyon is king of them all. It is about  2,000 feet long 200 feet deep, cut out in  the course of centuries by the waters of  Tohumn Creek, a most impressive and  (at ita head where the waters rush down  a pothole and dissappear from view)  breath-taking scene. Nine bridges span  the canyon, allowing . ne to look sheer  down into the dark abyssmal depth.  Don't go If you aro subject to nightmare. Tho road now climbs again to  Vermilion Summit, with an elevation of  5,600 feet. After passing Storm Mountain ou the right, the road descends by  genorous curves to Bow Valley. Tho  mountains here seem alive and following  ono, turning this way and that, showing  a now angle, a bare shoulder, a snow-  shawled head; finally that magnificent  pile Castle Mountain, appears at tho end  of tho road and ono must turn east to  Banff or went to Golden. Taking thc  west wo noon reocfy the Switchbacks  whoro it is ndvisablo to got into low to  go down, not so much on account of tho  grado aa the vlow. Further along ono  gets n nplondkl view of lVtt, Templo, ono  of tho lof kleat peak*, of tho mugo.  After croHBing Pipastono River tho  road turns to tho loft ncross Bow Rivor  and a throo-milo climb bring., ono to  lovoly Luke LouIhc. Thla is a most  beautiful plnco, and   while   monk   of   uh  Getting back to the main road, the nest  item of interest is the great divide where  one may have one foot in Alberta and  the other in B.C. Here the waters are  divided, one stream emptying into the  Atlantic eventually, and the other into  the Pacific. A monument is also here to  the memory of Sir James Hector, the  discoverer of this pass, as well as the  Vermilion Pass. Soon after leaving here  the road utilizes the old C.P.R, right-of-  way, the C.P.R. having built the famous  spirit tunnels to avoid the steep grade to  Field; entrance to the tunnel may be  seen from the road. The road from bore  on is most spectacular looking down the  Kicking Horse Valley and crossing Kick-  ir_2- Horsf {"!������!������������������������**������������      ir>._.-.<- _n!lr������ _..-������������- *-v__  "*'<_i   *.*.w.^.x.   <w������t ������������jf ������*_.. .      __l-������_iw ...���������.-������*_������  II VIII b������4%-  divide is Yoko Park   camping  grounds,  \__1-1_.V>   l������a   a        -_.������.-������_..������-,_       nlnnn      -f..-.       ..I _..</_..-.  ..-.-*���������    -*~    ��������� <.._.   .   x.. ������^._ ������...������*������w ->������^_ .!������-..*._._>.  While here we received an early morking  call ffrcm two ueer," followed by a visit  from a bear.   It was   very   amusing   to  watch the bear pry   the  lids   from   the  garbage cans and sit  astride   a   log  to  further his  Investigations.   He mistook  a camera for something to eat, so expect  the picture will be more of a cave than a  bear.    Many side trips can be made from  here, and the one to the natural  bridge  shonld   n t   be   overlooked.   Here   the  most timid or those   subject   to   vertigo  may look on the mably swirling waters  at close   range  and   in safety,   and   it  certainly is a sight to  see these waters  like human   nature   when uncontrolled  with passion, envy  and  strife,  changed  until   it   is   not   recognizable   as such.  From here one may visit Emerald Lake,  the antithesis of the waters just  described, calm, placid, peaceful in the extreme,  of a beautiful   emerald   green.    On   the  return     trip   to   Banff   one  may   visit  Talualuluan Falls gushing out of the side  of a mountain to fall 1,000 -J^et   below.  A switchback road on the   way   to   the  falls has __ grade of 200  feet   in   1700  safety devices being placed at each turn.  Still another canyon may be seen on the  way, Johnson Canyon, over 100 feet high  and     very      narrow.   Hole-in-tha wall  Mountain, Pilot Mountain and Cascade  Mountain      are      other    commanding  sentinals along the road.

These scientists tested the character attitudes of  Over 1O..OO0 school children from eight to sixteen years old, under "nbrmal"  school and home conditions. The children did not even know they were being  scientifically studied. The net result of these intricate and reliable tests was  to show that among agencies in having the greatest influence in building  hunaaa character, the "home" outweighed the school, the church, the Sunday  School, the movies and sports all combined.  " This is fact number one for parents to consider. The seoond in importance is where and how home influence and training makes or mars the child  life within its walls. There are three phases of home use o&st of which are  developed the emotional patterns or habits which will make boys and girls  into self-reliant men and women, able to meet an imperfect world with high  ideals of their own. These phases are, first, the attitude between husband  and wife; second, the attitude of sisters and brothers toward each other; and  third, the attitude of parents toward children.  Liet us take a look at the way in which these home attitudes foster the  one emotional attitude which affects our lives more than any other and extends as a sort of background through nearly all the others. This is telf-  confidence as opposed to fear���������not fear of some special thing but a rather  generalised fear of life fitself.  "Vast numbers of people who will face death on a moment's notice, who  go through all sorts of real dangers without a quaver, have yet a sort of  underlying fear of life's possibilities that seldom leaves them. It is easy to  fall into these generalized fears, and there are thousands of ways in which  parents actually teach this state of mind -^to their children. One of the  g-Tng.g-.ng discoveries made by doctors during the examinations in the World  War -was, that so many perfectly healthy young men had all their lives been  convinced that they had heart or kidney trouble or some similar malady and  had feared to undertake arduous occupation for that reason. In nearly all  cases their f ears had been started by hearing symptoms discussed at home.  What Is "fear" anyhow? Well, the scientists have done a world of work  in tho last thirty years on fear, and they find there are three distinct kinds.  The first is natural or biological fear���������the kind that preserves you from  natural perils; the second is intelligent or constructive fear���������the kind you get  from sound, healthful education; and the third is pathological fear��������� destructive tear that comes from a wrong view of life, from wrong comparisons of  yourself with other people, from wrong attitudes toward your job, and from  telling yourself constantly you are not as important as others. As a rule  there are just three people who ever tell you you are no good���������your parents,  your brothers or sisters,, and yourself. And nine times out of ten you have  begun to tell yourself you are no good, because your mother, or father, or  brother, or sister, in some way first destroyed your self-confidence.  For example, you hear many people assert they are naturally afraid of  lightning", or burglars, or something of the sort. This is not true, because  there are but two things that people are "naturally afraid of." The first is  a loud noise, and the second is the sense of falling. Or. John Watson and his  students have tried in hundreds of ways to frightened babies, but these are  the only two ways in which they have succeeded.  Many mothers say, "My child has always been afraid of the dark." Oh,  no, the mother taught Lt to be afraid. She put the babe to bed and went out  and slammed the door, or talked loudly, or scolded, or dropped a basin on  the floor. Or, when it got a little older, the mother talked about being afraid  of the dark herself, or told the child something dreadful that was likely to  happen in the dark.  And St ls just this way that children are taught "to be afraid of life.  Parents need to be taught ton the many ways in which they actually teach  their children to be afraid of life by shielding them from responsibility. They  are missing the greatest educational opportunity this world offers when they  fall to put as much responsibility on the child as he can reasonably carry just  aa early In life as is possible. In this way you build up habits of success instead of habits of failure, courage habits instead of habits of fearing life and  dodging its responsibilities.  This has nothing contrary to the duty of teaching the. children thc second  kind of fear���������intelligent fear���������which is merely teaching them good judgment  tn avoiding dangers and destructive habits. This kind of fear is merely the  negative side of 'character building and should be carried through to the  constructive -or positive side���������that is, to the development of ideals and  ambitions, of goals to be reached and battles to be won. The greatest duty  of parents la to fill their children's minds with the belief that they can meet  these duties and battles wLth satisfaction and success.  When Intelligent fear is carried to the point of exaggeration it becomes  tho thlrdl fear���������diseased or pathological fear. The way .out is to develop  lojglcal judgment of our own powers and those of our friends. When this is  done honestly, when you think "In detail" of your own powers of body and  mind and compare them with these same qualities in others, you will be astonished to find that you are superior in most respects to the very people you  have taught yourself to be afraid of,  But the great lesson for parents Is, that all these attitudes, both destructive and constructive, are chiefly developed In the homo. And since Nature  has given us but two inborn fears, and all others are loarned, and since the  home Is tho greatest agency in the world for teaching all our emotional attitudes, the very large question every family should answer is, "Are wo as  parents or brothers anicl sisters teaching ourselves and one another to meet  life wLth fear, self-depreciation and doubt, or are wo trying to be a daily  Inspiration to ono another to meet life with tho self-confidcnco and good  cheer that calls out each one's best energies?"  The answer to these questions will have moro effect on the happiness and  Kucccna ot every member of tho family than anything that ever hai. boon or  ever will, be taught in school or college.
