Sanatorium is an institution of which this province has every  reason to feel proud as are its two sister  institutions, located at Saskatoon and  Prince AlSsert. In these, close to 800  patients are under constant treatment  and as a result of the efficient manner  ,3n which the fight against tuberculosis  ���������js being waged the death rate ( in  Saskatchewan is the iowest of any  province in the Dominion and just  over half that of the average for  Canada as a whole. In Saskatchewan  there are 46 deaths per 100,000 of  Population while in Canada there are  1 deaths per 100.000. Last  year there were 407 deaths  from tuberculosis in this  province. Tuberculosis is still  the greatest cause of death  during the first thirty years of  life, causing one out of every  five deaths during this age.  period.  Funds for the maintenance  of Sanatoria and the care  of patients are provided  by taxes and the knowledge that  during these difficult times all unfortunate sufferers are being taken care  of is comforting indeed. But in spite  of all that is being done the loss, both  in life and unemployment, from tuberculosis, is staggering. In Saskatchewan an equivalent of one funeral every  day and two every Sunday occur as a  result of this disease. And more than  the number under treatment in our  Sanatoria are convalescing in their  homes and are still unable to work.  The period of total disability from this  disease averages about two years- per  person.  Education regarding tuberculosis 5s  essential for tlie control of the spread  of this dread disease. And never was  the need for education greater than at  present, as it is during times of depression, when a portion of owr. people  are under-nourished oi iusumcLcntly-  clad, that tuberculosis makes the  greatest head'wav.  The sale of (Christmas seals is the  chief source of revenue for educational  and preventive work.   The old saying  "prevention   is   better   than   cure"  applies with ^particular force in this  connection,   rreventive work is the  most important phase of anti-tubercular work and this is financed by voluntary contributions.   As a result of  the sale of Christmas Seals last year,  persons   in   Saskatchewan   received examination or other  attention.   The money raised  by the sale of Christmas Seals  helps finance the care of newborn  babes  whose mothers  were tuberculous; helps pay  for the examination of those  whohavebeenin contact with  tuberculous patients;   helps  finance the examination   of  those suspected by their physicians of having tuberculosis;  and helps carry  on   an   educational  campaign.

Mr. Bryant made the following statement:  "The matters to be Investigated by  the Commission are of paramount importance.   It is imperative that d supreme  effort   be  made   to  solve  the  problem    of    drought    In    Southern  Saskatchewan.   The people in the affected area are not satisfied to exist  under   present   conditions,   dependent  every two or three years on the state  for the necessaries of life. It is not  satisfactory   from   a    governmental  standpoint, either, as the finances of  the    state    cannot    stand    repeated  drains on the treasury, at frequent intervals, owing to crop failures over a  large area of the province.    To forget the experiences and lessons of the  past two  or three years in the wet  cycle  on  which,   apparently,  we  are  entering,  and to continue In the future the some conditions and methods  which have caused   drought   in   the  past,   is   only inviting  disaster  of  a  greater magnitude In the near future.  "In order to assist in solving the  problem, the Commission invites suggestions by way of letters, papers or  reports on research along thc Uno of  the problems being investigated, from  any individual, body, corporation, college or university, within or without  the province, as a pleoe of voluntary  national service.

Explanations, and Commente  The End Crowns the Work, verses  6-8.^���������The end is at hand, and calmly  and  deliberately Paul faces his end.  "I am    already    being-   offered,"    he  [writes to Timothy.      The margin of  the Revised Version    gives   a   closer  translation of the Greek/"! axa poured  out as a drink offerihg."    Paul's life'  Is a. libation: now the last drops are  being  poured  out upon the altar of  his  uttermost  devotion.     "No   doubt  the special reason for the selection of  this figure here Is Paul's anticipation  of a violent death.    The shedding of  his blood was to be an offering poured  out like some costly wine upon the  altar.    But the power of the figure  reaches far beyond that special application of it.'r      "And the time of my  departure is come."   The word translated departure is literally unloosing,  unmooring.       Like  a  tully  outfitted  ship at its dock the apostle sees himself tugging    at    his    moorings.    He  thinks of himself as about to weigh  anchor and set out to sea on his last  and Greatest adventure.  "For the Christian, the last experience is not that of a dismasted vessel,  just making the harbor; but of a  bark, with all sails set, fretting at  the anchor, and. wBitin*1" to t?e __et free.  Surely this was Tennyson's thought  when lie gave us his well-known sonnet on 'Crossing the Bar.' 'Let there  be no moaning at the bar, when I put  out to sea.' "���������F. B. Meyers.  Then with exceeding great joy the  apostle exclaimed as The reviewed his  own life, "x .have fought the good  fight, I have finished the course, I  have kept the faith." "Here is the  old warrior laying aside his weapons,  putting off his armor, going to his reward," "I have contested earnestly  in the good contest"���������for it is the athlete that the apostle has in mind; like  a runner in the games "I have finished the course" {"course", here means  an appointed 'track; I have completed  the God-assigned stretch: see i Corinthians 9.24; Acts 20.24); as contestants keep the rules of. the game so I  Have kept? the rules of life's courses 1  have trusted in God, "I have kept the  faith.".Y.,;'; - ..-..-'..,','.,;/.:-.... ;������/"."..; .  "Everybody is fighting,'' some for  wealth, some for place and-power.  Many a pitiful contest is being waged  in this world.. Here is the one noble  conflict in which, the iionest warrior  will ultimately triumph and in which  comjaletest satisfaction will be his."  ��������� 'l have finished the course": what  is tne course?  "Let rae give another word. What  is a racer ? Not a man -who runs anyway, but a man who runs over a  marked-out track. And Paul says,  _ have kept the track.' He found the  track. He followed the light. .And  when you and I become to be where  Paul xyas when this letter was written, there will be only one question  that will be worth asking, 'Have 1  kept the track ?

Last night  there had seemed to her ncj question  About the quality of that farewell-in  Ike little screened-off alcove. There  had; been nothing common or /cheap"  about it. The gathering: incidents of  the whole day, the fight through the  storm, the prelude of "Valse Triste,"  all seemed to have led her by imperceptible degrees to a point where she  and the Englishman could kiss at  parting without shame. And now,  vsdth the morning, the delicate rain-  how veiling woven i by romance was  rudely torn asunder, and the word  ���������"cheap" dinned in her ears like, the  clapper of a bell.  The appearance of.her "premier dejeuner'' came as a welcome distraction trork her thoughts, and with the  consumption of "cafe au lait" and the  ���������crisp little rolls, hot from the oven,  accompanying it, the whole matter  began to assume a less heinous aspect.  After all, argued Jean's weak human  nature, - the unconventionality of the  affair had been considerably tempered by the fact that the Englishman  had practically saved her life during  the course of the day. Alone, she  would undoubtedly have foundered in  the drifting snow  dull little village where she was a-  waiting Lady Anne Brennan's answer  to her. father's letter, and she grew  restlessly impatient for that answer  to arrive:  It came at last, during; the afternoon of the following day, in the form  of a telegram: "Delighted to welcome  you. Letter follows.'  The letter followed in due course,  two days later, the tardiness of its  arrival accounted for by the fact that  the writer had been-moving about  from, place to place, and that Peterson's own letter, after pursuing her  for days, had only just caught up with  her.

So you must  come and convince me that the unexpected has happened."  Jean liked the warm-hearted, unconventional tone of the letter, and  the knowledge that she would so soon  be leaving Montavan filled her with a  sense of relief.  ipuring the four days which had  elapsed since the Englishman's departure her restlessness had grown on  her.

It  was only now, surveying their ac-  quaintance inretrpspeett that she  fully realized how complete had been  his reticence.

V  "Good-bye, little comrade; thank  you for nay magic moment."  The words, and the manner .of their  utterance, came back to Jean, bringing with them, a warm and comforting reassurance. The man who had  thus spoken had not thought her  cheap; he was too fine in his perceptions to have misunderstood like that.  She felt, suddenly certain of. it. And  the pendulum of self-respect swung  back into its place once more.  Presently she caught herself wondering whether she would see him  again before'she left Montavass, True,  he had told her he was going away  next day. But had; he. actually -gone.?'  Somewhere within her lurked, a fugitive, half-formed hope that he might  have altered his intention.

She  could not have analysed, even to herself, the emotions it had wakened in  her! They were too complex, too  fluctuating,  As she packed her trunks in preparation for an early start the following day, Jean recalled with satisfaction the genuine ring of welcome  which had come from.

Chambers, head of the  Associated Growers, and R. B.  Staples, manager for Sales  Service, Limited. The remarks  of Mr. Staples strike us as being  of particular interest and are  reproduced as reported in the  Kelowna Courier.  "Mr. Staples, who followed Mr.  Chambers, was not   happy   oyer  the prospect of talking  and   he  would not be forced into discussing bulk by   Mr.    Chambers   or  anybody       else.     However,     it  should not be hard to talk about  fruit.    Everybody did it, and  all  knew   just   how    the    industry  should be   conducted.

DEC-   4  Storage and Export  Last month the Kelowna local  of the B.C.F.G.A., had their  annual meeting and a feature of  Calling attention to the fact  that no major losses had been  charged back to the growers in  recent years, Mr. Staples declared  that it spoke volumes for the  methods of distribution and for  the shippers.  "Referring to the domestic  pack, the manager of Sales  Service stated that four or five  years ago there was an important  movement from September on,  when the prairies were in a  position to invest money in stock.  During an eight-week period there  was a battle to sell as much as  possible, to get in on this profitable domestic market. People  were still thinking of that eight-  week period, but that business  had gone forever and never again  would it become the important  movement it had been in the  past. That fact had to be faced  and plans made accordingly.  The reasons were many,  such  as  the advent of the chain store,  which: differed from the ordinary  retailer. The - objective of x thes  chain store was to turn; over  stocks as many .times as possible,  and the other, dealers had to; fall  in line."  "To show profit on apples in  future attention would have to  be turned to export and storage  and the market would be fed in a  different manner than formerly*  The bulk problem, Mr. Staplfes  thought, would solve itself.  There would have to be a better  pack for storage apples, and it  was there the grower would have  to look for his profits, forgetting  the movement during the eight-  week period entirely. In connection with this new programme,  the grower would have to consider the varieties suitable for  storage to feed the fall domestic  market."  "Concluding,      Mr.      Staples  ' a low price. The greater part of  1 the Mcintosh was not suitable for  storage, he said. There was a  hew deal to face and a new view  point to be gained, and as time  went on this new deal might become more profitable.  Deer shooting is very poor in  the Nakusp district this year.  Jos.

Imperial Bank's Splendid  Showing  The statement of the Imperial  Hank of Canada for the year  ended 31st October, 1931, which  has just been issued indicates  that notwithstanding the depressed business conditions that  have prevailed, the bank has  made a very satisfactory showing. Some of the more important changes in the Balance Sheet  are a reduction of $10,000,000. in  Call Loans and an increase of  $45,000,000. in Government and  Municipal securities which means  that as the demand by the public  for loans against securities has  decreased, the bank has increased its own investments in  high-grade securities.

From there he went to the province of  Achaia and. following what must have  been a very disappointing experience  in Athens, came to Corinth.

Paul was a social soul. He worked best in harness  With others.  Turning To the Gentiles, verses 6,  7.���������The Jews opposed Paul and blasphemed. As Matthew Henry S3yss  they could not argue against Paul's  words, but what they wanted in reason, they made up in language. Paul  th-fin definitely decided to turn his-ef-  forts to the Gentiles..    . .;...���������'  Ptaul Encouraged, verses 8-11. ���������  Despite his turning to the Gentiles, a  noted Jew, Crispus, the ruler of the  synagogue, and all his house believed  Paul's message, and -many other  Corinthians believed and were baptized. Paul baptized Crispus with his  own hands, 1 Corinthians 1.14. "The  continguity of the ne<w meeting house  for the Christians and the.synagogue  was not only fruitful in winning .eon-  verts but also in raising disputes.  The conversion of an-important personage like Crispus led -to increased  opposition by the synagogue.

"Exhibitors in the western Provinces are most anxious to continue to  display their live "stock and other  agricultural products," the Royal's  statement goes on, "and the Dominion Government and. the Provincial  Governments,; recognizing the adynn-*  tages off the Provinces continuing to  occupy a prominent position at the  Royal are contributing their usuel financial assistance in transportation  and in the selection of the live stock  and agricultural products...  "There has been more than the  usual number of Inquiries from United States points this year and the  Royal's survey of Ontario and Quebec indicates that there is consiaer-  ably more live stock than usual ready  for exhibition, so that we are very  satisfied that the Winter Fair will  open with the best and most re'pre- '  sentative live stock displays which we  have ever had.

The bodice cuts all in one until it  joins the skirt flounce, which makes  it especially simple for home seamstress.  Another idea for this easily made  model, that will makejt appear entirely different, is to make it sleeveless with the cape collar as shown in  state of mind of the Canadian people,  apart altogether from its influence  upon agriculture.

STRONG POSITI ON  eria! Baxik of Canada  57in Annual Report  REVIEWS CANADIAN BUSINESS  Mr. Frank A. Rolph*  President?  said, in part:  Since the last annual meeting we have  put in a year of stress and anxiety, but,  thanks to careful management ana good  fortune^ the bank has come _hrough remarkably well, as the statement presented  to you to-day will shew, and which I am  satisfied will meet your approval.  A New Empire Policy.  Great Britain made a gallant, struggle  to maintain the gold standard,, but found  she had attempted the impossible, and on  the 20th of September last she very wisely  dropped the gold standard, and several  European, countries followed her lead. It  especially gratifying to see that the  is  British Gover_imen"t, which has recently  empowered the Board of Trade to put into effect a tariff policy up to 100 per cent.  duty for the protection of British incius-'  tries, has also intimated that British  Dominions wiLl have 100 per cent, preference over foreign countries^ a bold and  courageous policy, which we Canadians  should appreciate.  It is tobe hoped that some policy for  very material reduction or abandonment  of war debts will take place which should  work out to the advantage of both the  creditor and debtor nations^ the recent  proposals by Washington indicate a definite move in this direction.  Tide Has Turned.

Quite a  number of other commodities have also  shown slight increases, and_ some of the  best economists and statisticians isfbrrn  us that the tide has now turned, and,  while the upswing may be slow pnd  irregular, it would be better so than have  the violent fluctuations which took place  in i^_cO-_;i.  It seems- difficult to think that prices  could get much lower, so a definite upward trend in business cannot be very  long delayed. Perhaps the greatest factor  which will aid in restoring better rimes is  Confidence. It is interesting to note that  the press throughout the country is talking confidence and optimism, and this, 1  am sure, will be helpful.  No Bank Failures in Canada.  Let me say a word here on behalf of the  Canadian chartered banks. They have all  stood up remarkably well under the strain  which they have been called upon to bear.  Canada, I think, is particularly fortunate  in her banking system. There has not  been a single failure in ten years, and they  have served the public well. The addresses at the recent annual ^meeting of the  Canadian "ankers' Association, were very  Jieartemng. ��������� ::-  Agriculture still forms the largest item  in connection with our export trade, and a  favorable balance of trade depends largely  upon the export of agricultural products.  The increase during the last few weeks in  the price of wheat will be a great blessing  to the farmers in our Western Provinces.  Canada had a most unfortunate experience  in 1929 which resulted in heavy losses ahd  a large carry-over. In 1926 we had a  carry-over of about 35,000,000 bushels.  In 1929 we had a carry-over of approximately 112,000,000 bushels. It is unfortunate that in a commodity of this kind  such low prices should maintain, but it is  only by keeping it moving freely that we  can keep ourselves in a sound liquid  position.  Burden of Taxation.  The burden of taxation ia resting very  heavily upon us, especially under present  conditions. It is to be hoped that our  Government expenditures. Federal, Provincial and Municipal will be considerably  reduced.  In conclusion, may I say that the upturn, I believe, has come���������that what we  : need is confidence, endurance and abiding  faith in Canada and ourselves. .  Sir James Woods,  Vice-President*  said, In part:  Wc have been passing through one of  the difficult periods in the history of our  country. Canada, in common with, nil  lands, hns been in. a trough of depression.  partially brought about by the abnormal  deflation i a the price of raw materials nnd  the difficulty of adjusting productive  wages nnd distribution costs to meet these  new prices. But, as the abnormal always  gives place to tne normal, so must the  cotvdi tions of to-day give place to a gradual  return of the world at large to a. state in  which there will be enough and to spare  for all,        ......  Financial Structure Standi) Up Well.  We may congratulate ourselves that the  fin unci nl structure of Canada haa stood  well in a time of severe testing. Your  Bank, thc Imperial Bank of Canada, lilce  others, has Jcnown how to cqre for :3:c hate rests of deposi tors and shareholders, and  nt the same time acrve the needs of tmdc  and industry, As a country, we aro fortunate in tho vuricd character of our industries and resources. Were Canada today na purely agricultural as mho was  forty yenra npo, our condition would be  one of great difficulty. Since that time, we  have seen a remarkable expunisioii of _.������in-  ttig :vrid r>u!jp "3������! p._pcr i-n,"r...:fr.cl:___c, _n  additibri to the eatnbliNliment: of a flrent  number of industries to serve the home  and foreign, markets.

Sir James Says Farewell.  - Our President has told you what my  friends have known for more than a year; '  that this is the last occasion on wqifbi-X.  shall have the pleasure of seconding" tine  adoption of the Annual Report. I am not  retiring from, business, but I have taken  thy Banking duties seriously, as shown by  the fact that I have missed only_three  meetings of the Board of Directors in the  ���������fast three years, while, in the last vear, all  the meetings were attended, and at my  age, one should be allowed touanuove? to  others burdelis of a public nature. My  association with the Board and staff of the  Bank has been so pleasant that I bid them  farewell with very great reluctance.  Mr A. E* Phipps,  General ]&l*%m\���������2,ger9  said. In part:  Last year I made some expressions of a  hopeful nature, which, I am sorry to say,  have not been fulfilled. The year just  closed has been, perhaps, the most difficult one for Banks since I assumed the  General Managership ten years ago.  Throughout the year there was nothing  ft-,* dc<__!Et ___ TywT������*yi������*T trices &*id stock  and bond values, but business generally  has been at a very low ebb. Against this  background I venture to hope that the  statement which is in your hands to-day  will be considered entirely satisfactory.  Although the earnings are not up to last  year's figures, in fact we have to go back  to 1927 for parallel, we consider profits of  ������c_ ina. ba-������   __..-_-.,,+____ iu ������>- p-t-fit i-d  y������iw������V)wwW|     *���������_____ ->mw>������_     aaa       ___.<->     * i vm b     ������uu  Loss Statement, good enough.  The Balance Sheet, jn my opinion, shows that the  Bank's business and position have been  well maintained, and that the Bank enjoys public support and confidence in as  great a degree as ever before. In common  with other Banks, we omitted the payment tevthe shareholders of the bonus of  one per cent, this year. As has been pointed out, in common with all holders of  Government and Municipal securities (we  do not carry anything else in our portfolio), we had to suffer depreciation in the  market value, which was taken care of out  of the reservies maintained by the Bank  for that purpose, and although we have  faith that the securities will, in rime, appreciate again, wc have thought it wise ts  provide $250,000 as a reserve^against de-  nredation ������f securities*    This we have  been able to do by making use of .the  amount tha? would have gone to pay the  bonus, and addktg to it other undistributed earnings of the year, and still carry  forward a small increase or $21,363 in the  balance of our Profit and Loss Account^  which now stands at $761,908. The usual  item of Bank Premises has been taken  care of in other ways.  Quality of Loans High.  I would like to again give you my usual  assurance that we believetne quality of  our current loans is exceedingly nigh, and  that full provision has been made tor anything which could be considered doubtful.  The other important jisset is our Bank  Premises account, which now stands at  $63300,00O, an increase of approximately  $300,000 during the year represented by  the value of the Head Ofiice and twenty-  five Branch buildings, obtained from the  Weyburn Security Bank, less amounts  written o_T.   These amounts and t!_e ex-  Ecnditurea on our own building operations  ave been provided through the usual depreciation reserve There were no important buildings erected during the year.  Weyburn Security Bank.  In the closing month of 1930, arrangements were made whereby the Imperial  Bank of Canada would acquire the business and undertaking of the Weyburn  Security Bank, a chartered Bank with its  HeadO_R.cc in Weyburn, Sask., nnd thirty  I Branches, all in the immediate vicinity.  The Imperial Bank of Canada was not represented in that section of the country,  and for this and other reasons your  Directors deemed it advisable to enter into  negotiations which were confirmed by a  special meeting of the shareholders on  Mordi S7th.

Instance  For a Central Bank  Queen's University Professor  Points  To Weakness En Our Banking  System  Complete overhauling of Canada^  monetary structure, and the establishment of a central bank which  would assume the responsibility for  credit control., were advocated hy  Professor C. A. Curtis, of Queen's  University, in an address to the Canadian Club at Ottawa. At present, he  said, no credit control existed in Canada, and its lack   meant   a   greatly  I weakened monetary system. Before  the war, such control had been exercised by the banks, but the passing of  the Finance Act had resulted in removing this control from the banks  while it had not yet been accepted by  the government. Its -re-establishment was much mdfe important than  the bringing back of the Canadian  dollar to par.  Professor Curtis spolce on the Canadian monetary situation, and he  traced the majority of Canada's monetary troubles back to the passing of  the- Finance Act shortly after the  declaration of war. This act, he said,  permitted the Finance Department to  advance Dominion notes to the hanks  oa presentation of satisfactory collateral. Prior to the war, Dominion notes  could be issued up to $30,000,000  backed to the extent of 25 per cent, by  j gold, but over that amount there must  be dollar for dollar in  gold.
