New Year's eve saw the windup of the  opening competition of the curling  season, President vs. Vice-President, in  which the rinks carrying the presidential banner came home in front by the  rather narrow margin of four point .  And looked at from the angle of games  played the going was even tighter. In  the 25 contest in the series the  president's supporters won 13, while the  vice-president annexed 11 and figured m  one tie gams���������the _L_al of the series.  At the start of play on Thursday  evening President Joyce had a lead of  one point. He hooked up with the Weir  rink, while vice-president Speersg encountered the Sinclair quartette. For  the first few ends it looked a* if Speers  would clean up on the series, as at the  end of the third round he was leading  Sinclair 8-0 and thelbest Joyce was doing was to run on even terms. However,  commencing with the fourth the  Sinclair talent began to get ths range  and with the last rock in his game scored  the necessary point to hold Speers to an  even break at 10-10. Joyce managed to  hold the Weir supporters in check to  finish ahead 9-6 and thus cop the silverware by the four point margin. Curlers  with good memories are having a hard  - time trying to recall a mere exciting  finish in a competition of the sort.  In the 25-game series the play was, for  the most part, fairly even, with the  Henderson-Weir 2-13 and. Beninger-  Speers 12-1 a -couple ofnotable exceptions. The Joyce rink went through the  campaign without a loss, and-the Telford  rink lost only one game. The scores n  the last series follows:  Boyd- ._ 9  Joyce  14  Sinclair 10  Boyd 14  Beninger  5  Henderson   ���������2  Beninger  7  Henderson ....12  .

The winner of the primary  round will get possession of the former  trophy and the rinks that fail to get as  far as the semi-final in this competition  will fight it out for the Imperial Bank  cup.  are wintering at the head of Corn creek,  about ten miles north of Porthill. Canadian trappers and woodsmen are reported to have sent word to Creston that the  cougars were located on Corn creek, and  that a pack of dogs would be necessary  to successfully hunt them down.  Mr. Guiles says he can gather a formidable pack of good cougar dogs, if the  Canadian.. authorities, wiil extend permission to cross the line.  Mr. Bangs is interested in cleaning  out the cougars, as they are close enough  to American territory to menace game  on this side of the line.  Unemployed Men  Ask Relief Work  Chas.

Mrs. O. M. Samuelson was an afternoon tea hostess on Wednesday last in  honor of Mrs. Grover Kifer, who was  here on a visit from Canal Flats. The  afternoon of oldtime sociability was  much enjoyed by all.  ,.. ,U_-ja^pl-^ing^to^  Christmas, as in i-he last, all the  Canyon bachelors were guests in local  homes for their Christmas dinner, and  greatly appreciated the hospitality extended them.  Heartiest congratulations are extended  Miss Helen Nouguier. who giaduated  from St. Anthony's Hospital, Wenatchee, Wash., in May, and has passed  the State Board Examinations and has  just been awarded her diploma of  Registered Nurse.

Hilton Young who is spending January on a visit with friends ih T ronto  and Scarboro, Ontario, has just been  heard from. He states the eastern  Canada weather is mild with with sleet  and rain and very little snow. On his  way east he made stops at Estevan,  Sask., and Winnipeg, Man. At tne  former place Creston Spitzenberg apples  were on pale at $2.75 per box, with bulk  apples from here going at three cents a  pound but not in much demand as they  were rathor heavily bruised. In the  Eaton store at Winnigeg CreBton  Delicious with the Long, Allan & Long  Limited "Loallo" label were selling at  $3.80, and tn considerable demand just  before Christmas.  About 150 adults wore in attendance  at tho Now Year eve party given in  tit air honor nt tho community hal. at  which dancing was the principal feature,  with cards, and a concert programme  between 11 and 12, nt tho conclusion of  which 1981 was ushered out to the  strains of Auld Lang Syne, and 1932  welcomed In with best w alios for good  health and general prosperity.

Local unemployed and those sympathizing with this cause, %to the number of  60 were out for the meeting on Wednesday afternoon, in the United Church  basement, at which -such action as is  possible was taken to secure the opening  up o" relief work byjfthe provincial government. ..';'" " '  The meeting was opened by R. Hewitt,  who was directly responsible for the  gathering, after whieh Rev. A. Walker  was elected chairman, and the session  thrown wide open for a general discaesfea  of the whole problem.  Those taking a hand in the deliberations were quite moderate in their utterances, and at least two paints stood out  clear in the various opinions expressed.  One of these was that right now wives  and families of some of the unemployed  are facing distress and the only hope of  relief is by tbe starting up of government  relief work. The other point made clear  is that tn the past funds provided for  relief work have not reached those most  in need of help.  After all who wished to speak had  been heard from a motion was submitted  bjr Rev. T. Scott and seconded by Dick  Penson, that a committee representing  and "Bud" Miller of Creston. At  bridge the high score-prizes were won by  Myrtle and Selmer Anderson, consolation  honors going to Clara Hunt and  Clarence Anderson. Mrs. N. P.  Molander assisted Mrs. C.

In his address the retiring president,  amongst other things, stressed the neces-  ity of a still lorgcr membership in order  to carry on efficienely in all departments,  and this point was still further emphasiz-  ek by the secretary, Geo. Mawson, in  his report.  In the review of the year it was brought  out that the season for dncks and  geese  had-been much the same as 1930.   The  drought that prevailed in the northern  sections of   Alberta  did   not   have any  effecf^on the   quantities   of  water fowl  availadle at Creston. but it waa pointed  out that   the somewhat prevalent idea  that ducks  were  more numerous than  other years was wrong.

Resolved,  that on behalf of the unemployed married  men we petition the government to open  some public works whereby they might  make provision for their wives and  children. We believe- that this is the  only statesmanlike way of solving the  problem, and would suggest that the  monies provided by the government for  this purpose reach the objective.

A feature to both the duck and geese  season in 1931 was  the   flight   of  these  birds to feed on the wheat fields on the  Reclamation farm.   This is the first time  the birds have made this move, and it  had resulted in poorer shooting toward  the close of the season.

The 1930-31 trapping season had been  a disappointment and this is attrubed to  the absence of the rabbits, but as these  are very numerous this winter a better  fur catch is confidently looked for.

We can never build  an intensive agriculture in Southern  Saskatchewan until this  problem  is  solved.  The suggestions made at the recent meeting of Saskatchewan agronomists are similar in practically every  respect to the suggestions made by  the Royal Commission of Inquiry into  farming jn 1921. These suggestions  have >not met the situation In the  semi arid district^ of Southern and  South Western, Saskatchewan. They  have .been ^ried and conditions are  now worse than ever in these areas.  We xntist look further afield for the  solution of the problem.  The article by A. J. Connor,' Chief  Climatologist for the Dominion, advances a fifty year old theory as to  the causes of drouth but holds no  solution of the problem. If in this  prairie region we are creatures of  blind chance and have to depend for  our rain upon the meeting of cold  currents of air from the north with  warm currents of moisture laden air  from the Gulf of Mexico and southern Atlantic Ocean tropical regions,  said currents moving according to  no known law, and their failure to  meet over the prairies at the right  time and place resulting in a drouth  and crop failure, then the farmers of  Southern Saskatchewan would be of  all men the most miserable. If that  were true, then there Is no hope.  Mr. Connor admits that he can  answer only a distressingly small  part of the questions he asks himself,  after following weather conditions  daily over a period of twenty-five  years. In the last paragraph-of this  article referring to drouth conditions  caused when the prevailing westerly  winds took command, he says;  "If we had enough world wide information both on the surface and in  the-upper air, could we explain these  abnormalities, or at Eeast could we  predict them some months ahead? I  do not know. Nobody knows, but we  work and hope."  On July 7th, 1920, Sir Frederic  Stupart, then Director of the meteorological service for Canada spoke at  Swift Current. I have perused carefully his theory as set forth in the  published report of his address. There  is no mention in that address of the  moisture laden winds of the Atlantic  or the Gulf of Mexico as affecting  the rainfall in Southern Saskatchewan.  Sir Frederic said in the course ot  his address:  'Tn the Western Provinces we live  io. the middle latitudes where the  flow of air is from west to east but  ir_ certain regions of these latitudes .in  the west there is a comparatively  light precipitation. Further eastward  in the region of the Great Lakes  there is either ample precipitation or  more than ample. Sir Frederic spoke  of the Pacific Ocean as the source of  our precipitation. He is reported in  conclusion as saying:  "The great Pacific Ocean was to  the west of the mountains  and  the  ter the climate and make prosperous  and happy homes for themselves and  their childrens' children.  The Encyclopaedia Britannica under the heading of waters and forests  states that in level country the forests constitute an effective means of  draining and drying up swampy lands,  the breeding places off malaria and  feVer-carr^ing insects. The reforestation of the Landes, Sologne, and Pontine marshes and a hundred other examples prove this. It draws moisture  from a greater depth than does any  other plant organism thus affecting  the unutilized water of the lower  horizontal strata by bringing it again  into the general circulation of water  in the atmosphere and making it  available for vegetation. It refreshes  the air above It and increases the condensation of moisture carried by the  winds, thus increasing the frequency  of rains^-durlng the vegetative season.  In November, 1924:, the illustrated  "Canadian Forest and Outdoors" carried this paragraph:  "The terrible famine conditions for  several years past in China, are a  matter of general knowledge. Yet  that country once had a wonderful  covering of  trees,  the equal of the  but to a change in the nature of the  soil and vegetation.

The temperature contrasts  have been increased owing to th&  heating effect of ^e bare ground and  the rain now falls largely in heavy  instability showers including destructive thunder atorms."^.  This paragraph expresses the condition, exactly " in Southern Saskatchewan. To this we add the effects of  summerfallow which has taken ffrora-  the soil some of the necessary ingredients for the production of crops.  The fine tillage has reduced lh&  amount of humus or vegetable matter  in the soli to such a degree that tho--  drlfting of the soil has become 'a  menace. An. examination of th*  Government records shows that the  mean average precipitation at Regina-  over a period of eighteen years from.  1S90 to 1907 inclusive was 13.86 inches whereas the total average precfipi-  well wooded portions of Canada, but  tation at Qu'Appelle during the same  China, poor benighted land that it is, j period is  18.10 inches.

In North Dakota where conditions  arc similar to South Western Saskatchewan, during a thirty-seven year  period between 1892 and 1928, sixteen years, or nearly half of the period, received less than itB normal precipitation. During a period of fifteen  years between 1885 and 189B all but  four fell below the normal precipitation. During the period 1917 and  1926 precipitation was, except for two  years, below the average. During  these periods droughts were prevalent, crops were poor, there were  many foreclosures and bank failures,  the St. Paul railroad wont into a receivership and land values became  very low.  When we find throughout n very  largo area of South Western Saskatchewan that drouth conditions are  becoming alarming not only In their  frequency but En the area-over which  they extend, when wc find that owing  to frequent failures in the crop, the  very host settlers cannot maintain  themselves without municipal, Pro-  vinoial and Federal assistance In the  matter of food, fodder, fuel, and seed,  and tho magnitude of Uio problem  Is such as to tax our financial  resources,    the    matter    in    far too  f"cr lov!n     for  ^ ..A,* I".  jj _���������������.������ Ii_<<_  criticism; It affords no room for potty  jealousy, which is often found' In a  certain typo oi. official, when lias never  done anything to hoIvo the problem,  who Is doing nothing to Halve it, and  who would endeavor to hinder ������n_y  Mig chac from trying t<_ Make aw 6*-  fort to do so.

One could scarcely believe that  any small thing that man could do in  cultivation would have any effect ih  altering the climate. The agriculturist would have to find means by  which he could make the best of conditions as they exist. He was not  a believer that man could do anything  to  encourage rain."  Apparently the chief Climatologist  for Canada and the director, of meteorological service for Canada, approach the subject from a different  view point. With the future of farming in Southern Saskatchewan at  stake, it is the duty of the Commission on Conservation and Aiforesta-  tation to examine these and many  other theories, to compare conditions  in Saskatchewan with similar conditions in other parts of the world, to  ascertain the cause and the effect of  certain climatic conditions and to relate and co-relate the data acquired  in an effort to offer a solution of the  problem of drouth and as a member  of the Commission I approach the  subject with a firm conviction, that  wc can find a solution.  In order to create an interest in  the problem under consideration and  in order to provoke public discussion  in the better farming societies  through the province I desire to throw  out a few suggestions for consideration.  Ward, In his work on "Climate" at  page 350 says:  "The present condition of the country (Tripoli)j is ascribed to'the. Idleness of the Arabs who have allowed  wells to become choked and vegetation to perish. In a country so littlo favored by nature, the first requisite Is a diligent and hard working population. The Romans took several centuries to make the country  productive by damming rivers, and  sinking wells in the "wady" beds. In  aii arid region man haa. a hai'd la.ik  if ho is to overcome the climatic difficulty of tho situation. Irrigation, tho  choice of suitable crops adapted to  arid conditions, and steady thoughtful  work, are absolutely essential. To a  largo extent an Intelligent man anay  thus overcome many of the obstacles  which nature has put In his way. On  the other hand, a region of deficient  a ...jij..*jij, t_..*cu uun_.__d,y aCuuuu ������������.uu |j*iu������-  perous, may readily b.ecomo an apparently hopeless den art. even without tlio Intervention of war and pestl-  lonce, if man allows tho climate to  master him."  The challenge is, arc tho farmers  of 8out-_on_ SnaUatchcwan fto.ttg to  lot the climate mEiater them, ot' arc  they going to tighten up their bolts  and by ri toady thoughtful work mas-  did what we are doing in Canada,  cut away its trees and allowed the  land to be burned over. The vege-.  tation was destroyed over vast areas,  then the water swept over the land  and carried with it the fertile top soil.  So there are millions of acres in  China that constitute a barren waste  not capable of producing vegetation.  China has one cr6p in seven years  and In the other years of that period  must look to the world for substance  to feed her teeming millions. China  has become and will remain for long  years, a land of perpetual famine,  because she has destroyed her forest  covering, subjecting, herself to the devastation of alternating floods and  droughts, and has sacrificed the fertile top soil over such a vast portion  of her domain."  Mr. Frank Barnjun advised me  during this summer, that China was  one.of the twe countries in the world  that required trees more than southern Saskatchewan. In China the windows are nailed down and cracks  pasted with paper in order to keep  out the dust from even the best  buildings. We had similar dust  storms In Saskatchewan this summer.  Sir Sanford Fleming, on page eight  of his report of "Progress on the Explorations and Surveys of the Canadian - Pacific Railway up to January,  1874," says:  "Although the prairie region is of  vast extent, it is not all fertile. A  very large area adjoining the boundary of the United States midway  between Manitoba and the Rocky  Mountain zone, is arid and unfavorable for agriculture/'  John Macoun, Botanist to the Fleming Expedition, states in his report of  May 1st, 1873:  "In Manitoba this will soon be  remedied, drains will be cut to take  off the surface -water, trees planted  and as a consequence of greater rainfall; the salts will be dissolved and  carried of_ from the surface, and salt  plants disappear. This is no fancy  sketch, as it is a fixed fact in Physical Geography, that to clothe the land  with trees, takes away the salt and  gives a greater rainfall. Any person  acquainted with the history-off Palestine and Northern Africa knows that  what were the most fruitful countries  in the world 2,000 years ago are now  barren, saline wastes. "The cause is  well known, the trees were cut down,  none were planted in their place, the  sun evaporated the rain before it had  time to penetrate the soil, salts accumulated and in course of time, the  land was given up to perpetual barrenness."  "Our interior plains will yet be covered with wood, there will be a sufficient- rainfall, streams will be more  frequent, the old channels will contain more water, brackish pools will  give place to purer waters, and the  teeming millions will only know by  tradition or old records that the land  was once given up to the red man or  tho buffalo. T.o a common observer  these matters are not so plain as they  are to a botanist. A botanist Is  struck with the absence off mosses,  and asks himself the cause. The answer comes at once, moisture is evaporated too quickly. How shall we prevent this. Cover the land with trcea  by stopping the annual fires, Threo-  flourths of our prairie is within the  lino of natural forest."  Meyer iii his "Hydrology" at page  188 says, "If tho ahangoa occur In  the cultural conditions of tho large  land aroa3 which Increased evaporation, the result must Inevitably be an  Increase in precipitation. On tho  oilier hand, if ..hero arc changes on  the land areas which Increase tho  amount of water which runs off over  the  earth's  surface  or  through tho  only about thirty-eight _miles' from.  Regina, yet over a period: of eighteen years has had an average of 4.24.  inches precipitation greater than Regina. In the driest year recorded in  the precipitation records of the -meteorological stations in Saskatchewan between the dates mentioned,.  namely 1894, the precipitation at Regina station was ���������.__<* inches, while  at Qu'Appelle it was 12.52 inches.  Why this diirerence in. rainfall? Was-  it because Qu'Appelle was a treed  area with large bodies of water ad- ���������  jacent, while Regina was on a treeless plain, remote from lakes, even the ���������  Wascana, in 1894? Rantz Is the authority for the statement that the  downfall of the mighty empire of  Spain, to its present decrepid condition was caused by the destruction of  its forests. If such disaster followed the destruction of forests in North- -  ern Africa, in China, and in Spain,  what advantages must result from  the afforestation of the present treeless plains of Saskatchewan?  I make  these suggestions  to provoke discussion.. If any agronomist,  climatologist or meteorologist desires '  to throw his hat ia the ring, I will  be pleased to write a few articles for'  the agricultural or daily press on the -  distinct understanding that I am expressing by own views and not the-  considered opinion of the Commission. -  There has been some sniping at the-  Commission    going   on    behind    the  scenes. It is alleged  that we  are  a  bunch of impractical - theorists    and  arm chair philosophers, and that we  don't know    what    we    are    talking  about or thinking about. The proof of '  the pudding is in the eating. We will  be prepared to submit our considered  opinions  to  a hard headed practical  jury consisting of the farmers in the  dried out areas of Southern' Saskatchewan, who are entitled to every assistance which science can give them. .

CHAPTER X.  Other People's Troubles  Jean woke to find the chill, wintry  -sunlight thrusting in long- fingers  -through the space between the case-  ..ments and the edges <of the window-  "fclinds. At first the unfamiliar look off  -a. strange bedroom puzzled her, and  rshe lay blinking drowsily at the wav-  -eriiog" silts of light, ��������� wondering in  vague, half-awake fashion where she  -was. Gradually, however, recollectioaa  rreturned to her, and with It & lively  curiosity,to view Staple'toy daylight.  -She jumped out of bed and, rattling  up the blinds on their rollers, peered  ^out of the window.  There was a. hard frost abroad, and  -the stillness which reigned over the,,,  -ice-bound^country-side reminded her  *of the big Alpine silences. But here  "there was no snow���������no dazzling sheet  ���������*������f -whiteness spread, with, cold, grey-  Tblue shadows flung across it. -. Green  -and shaven the lawns sloped gently  ��������� down from a flagged terrace, running  -immediately beneath her Window, to  -the very rim of the frozen lake that  : gleamed in the valley below. Beyond  the valley, scattered woods' and  copses climbed the hillside opposite,  T leafless and bare save where a cluster of tall pines towered in evergreen i  -defiance against the slate of the sky.  Ill the farther distance, beyond the  confines of the   manor   park    itself,  ��������� Jean could catch glimpses of cultivated fields���������the red Devon soil glowing  j.ewel-llke through filmy wisps of  morning mist that still hung in the  .'atmosphere, dispersing slowly ' as  though loth to go. Here and there a  little spiral of denser, blue-grey  smoke wreathed its way upwards  from the chimney of some thatched  cottage or farmhouse. And back of  tt all, adumbrated-in a dimv mysterious purple, the gireat tors of Dartmoor rose sentinel upon, the horizon.  Jean's glance narrowed down to the  Sloping sward in front of the house.  It was all just as her father pictured  f.t ta her. On the left, a giant cedar  ' broke the velvet'smoothness of mown  grass, Its gnarled arms rimmed with  hoar-frost, whilst to the right a tall  25 lbs.

By craning her neck and almost flattening her nose against the window-  pane, she'-could just make but a sunk  lawn in the rose-garden, and. in its  centre the slender pillar of an ancient  sundial.  It was all very English and old-  fashioned, "breathing the inalienable  charm of places that had been well  loved and tended by successive generations. And over all, hills and valleys, park and woodland, lay that  faint, almost imperceptible humid  veil wherewith, be it in scorching  summer sunshine or iron frost, the  West Country tenderly contrives to  soften every harsh outline into something gracious, and melting, and alluring.  To Jean, familiarized from childhood with the piercing clarity of atmosphere, the brilliant colouring and  the deflniteness of silhouette of southern Europe and of Egypt, there was  something inexpressibly restful and  appealing in those blurred hues of  grsy,,and violet, in the warm red of  the Devon earth, with its tender overtone of purple like the bloom, on a  grape, and the rounded breasts of  green-clad hills curving suavely one  into the other till they merged into  the ultimate, rock-crowned slopes of  the brooding moor.  "I'm going to love your England,"  she told Nick.  They -were making their way down  to the lake���������alone together, since  Blaise had curtly refused to join, them  ���������and as she spoke, Nick stopped and  regarded her consideringly.  "I rather imagine England will love  you," he replied, adding, with the  whimsical impudence which was  somehow always permitted Nick  Brennan: "If it were not for a prior  claim, I'm-certain I should have loved  you in about five minutes."  . "I'm. sorry I happened too late," retorted Jean.  "But I can still be a brother to  you," he pursued, ignoring her interpolation. "I think"���������reflectively���������"I  shall like being a brother to you."  - "I should expect a brother to fetch  and carry," cautioned Jean. "And to  himself" generally lisefid.'"*' ~      ''"'  "I haven't got the character from  my last place about me at the moment, but I'll write at out for you  when we get back. Meanwhile, I will  perform the menial task of fastening  on your skates."  They had reached the lake by now.  It was a wide stretch of water several acres in extent, and rimmed  about its banks with rush and alder.  At the far end Jean could discern a  boat-rhouse.  "It must be an ideal place for boating in the summer," she said, taking  in the size of'the lake appreciatively  used ' to - ���������.; own Chamwood���������a place  about a mile from here. It was sold  after your grandfather's death. Did  your father never tell you?"  She shook her head.  "He, always avoided speaking "of  anything in connection with his life  over here. I think he hated England.  Is there anyone living at Chamwood  now?" she asked, after a pause.  "Yes. It has changed hands several  times,-and now a friend of -ours lives  there���������Lady Latimer."  "Then perhaps I shall be able to  go there some day. I should like to  see ���������the place where ray father's people lived"-���������eagerly  Nick laughed.  "You've got the true Devonshire  homing instinct," he declared. "Devon folk who've left the county always  want to see the "place where their  people lived.' " I remember, about a  year ago, a Canadian girl and her  brother turned up at Staple. They  were descendants of a Tormarin who  had emigrated two or three generations before, and they had come  across to England for a visit. Their.  first trip -was to Devonshire, they  wanted to see 'the place where Dad's  people had lived.' And, by Jove, they  knew a lot more about it than we did!  They were posted up in every detail,  and insisted on a personally conducted tour over the whole place. They  weoxt back to Canada rejoicing, loaded with photographs of Staple."  Jean smiled.  "I think it was rather dear of them  to come back like ths*," she said simply.  They swung round the head of the  lake and, as they turned, Jean caught  sight of a woman's figure emerging  front the path wich ran through the  woods. Apparently the new-comer  descried the skaters at the same moment, for she stopped and waved.her  hand in a friendly little gesture ef  greeting.    Nick lifted his cap.  '..That is Lady Latimer," he said-  Something in his  voice,  some  indescribable     deepening   of    quality,  made Jean look at him quickly.

What is a leap year, and why do they  Q&3WS in practically every fourth year? The origin of leap years goes back  io the time before the birth of Christ. Far back ia the early years of mankind on this earth, the flrst division of time devised by man was the day,  marked out by the alternation of light and darkness, and determined by  the rotation of the earth on its axis.  For longer periods, the lunar month, from new moon to new moon,  an interval of about 2914 days, was the standard next fixed upon. Finally,  the recurrence of the seasons suggested the year. The duration of the  year was determined in various ways by the nations of antiquity, one of  the earliest ways being to make it include a certain number of lunar months.  Twelve lunar months, giving a year of 354 days, were taken as a near  approach to a course of the seasons. In process of time, however, it was  discovered that with this rough approximation to the true value of a year;  the seasons did not correspond to the same months, and it was necessary, i  in order to prevent them gradually making the round of the whole year,  to make some adjustment.  Originally the Romans had. a year of ten months, but early in their  history they adopted, from their belief in the luck attendant on odd numbers,  a lunar year of 355 days, and added two new months, January and February.  To make the necessary adjustment, referred to in the*preceding paragraph,  Jews and Greeks intercalated a month from, time to time, and at the time  Julius Caesar became dictator the spring festivals occurred in the nominally  summer months. To clear away all this confusion, Caesar, with the help of  Soerigenes, an Alexandrian astronomer, undertook a thorough reform of the  calendar. He effected it by making the year now called 46 B.C., "the year  of confusion/' consist of 445 days, and the succeeding years of 365 days,  with the exception of every fourth year, which was to consist of S66 days.  This method of adjusting the days to the year is called the Julian calendar.  The Julian calendar assumes the length of the solar year to be 365^4  days, whereas it is 11 minutes and a few seconds less. This annual error  accumulated as the years rolled on. From time to time proposals were  advanced to rectify the error, but the matter was not taken up in earnest  till 1577, by Pope Gregory XM. As in 1582 the vernal equinox occurred at  a date (March 11} ten days earlier than it did at the time of the Council  of Nice in 325 A.D., Pope Gregory published, a bull, dated March 1, 1582,  annulling 10 days, so that what would have been reckoned the Sth October,  1582, was to be reckoned, the 15th October.  In order also that the displacement might not recur, it was further  ordained that three of the leap years which occur in 400 years should be  considered as common years. The three leap years selected to be reduced  to common years were those which close the centuries (i.e., which end with  00) and are not divisible by 400. Thus, 1600 was leap year, 1700, 1800, 1B00  were common years, 2000 will be leap year, and so on. This method of  adjusting the days to the year is called the Gregorian calendar, or the new  style.  This new ealeadar was adopted that same year by mandate of the Pope  in Spain, Portugal, part of Italy, in France, and by Catholic Europe generally before the end of the 16th century. Scotland adopted the modern New  Year's Day in 1600. The change was carried out in England in 1752. Russia,  Greece, and the smaller states belonging to the Greek Church, are now  the only countries which still adhere to the old style. There is now a difference of 13 days between the old. style (Julian) and the new style (Gregorian), because, to the 10 days originally annulled by Pope Gregory in 1582  there have since been added the elimination of the three extra leap year  days of 1700, 1800 and 1900.  It is also of interest to note that the same Act which introduced the  now reckoning in England in 1752 shortened by nearly three months the  year 1751, "for it had been the practise to commence the year with March  25, the Feast of the Annunciation, and the year 1751 so commenced, but the  year 1752 and all subsequent years began with January 1.  So, the answer to our question is that a leap year, with its additional  day in February,���������the shortest of all the months,���������Is to.make up the one-  quarter of a day in each year over and above the 365 days. But inasmuch  as there are actually 11 minutes and some seconds less than 365}.! days in  each solar year, it further becomes necessary to drop three leap years in  every 400 years to again maktng the reckoning straight.  Around leap year there has grown-up many traditions and customs, the  one now most commonly recalled being the alleged privilege accorded to  women to propose marriage instead of being obliged to wait upon mere man  to offer marriage.  Canadian Legion and Pensions  Pensioners Affected Are Those Who  Accepted a Final Payment  Following objection of Georges  Gonthier, Auditor-General, to reinstatement by the Board of Pensions  Commissioners for Canada of certain  classes of pensioners," the Pensions  Board consented to the request of the  Canadian Legion that a test case be  brought before the pensions appeals  court.  Numbering 9,318, the pensioners affected are those who accepted a fin^l  payment in lieu of pensions under  earlier legislation and who, und.r the  amendments to the Pension Act of  1030, have been restored to pension.  According to Legion officials several  hundred of those restored will be  adversely affected." "In most cases,  payment of pensions has been made  aad If the appeal fails the pensioners  presumably will be required to restore the money to the Dominion  Treasury. ������  In a statement issued recently,  Legion ������facials state they have advocated restoration^ of final payment  cases for some years past and when  the provisions of 1930 were passed, j  "the Legioa, and all soldier organizations concerned, believed the matter  had been settled finally. The present  action of the Auditor-General," the  statement continues, "is therefore  viewed by the Legion with surprise  and concern."  The appeal, the statement saj^s, is j  taken to eliminate the possibility of  hardship resulting from delay. The  Legion will conduct the appeal, and  hopes to have the case argued before  the end of the year.

"Smut" was  among friends again, but his master  was not there.  What route he had travelled, how  many miles he had covered, how he  had fed en route and how many farm  dogs he had fought "Smut" could not  tell, but he was able to express his  joy and pleasure at being "just among  friends" in a canine way.
