The "Evening with Shakespeare*"  presented by the Creston High School  Literary and Athletic Association last  Friday .evening excited favourable  comment.  The first item consisted of two songs  hy the Girls' Choir, ^Bl������?7, Blow, Thou  Winter  Wind", and - /The   Mermaid." .  The latter, especially, was received very  favourably ..  The second item, the familiar play  within "A Midsummer Night's J_)ream," .  was capably acted by a group of boys.  Jack Payne as * Pyrarnu?" was the best  of the cast, br___gi__g an energetic  appreciation to the part. He was given  excellent support by Allan Speers as  "Thisbe" and by the remainder of the  cast, S. O.

Sydney  Scott as "Gratiano" and Betty Speers  as "Nerissa" were excellent. Roland  Miller as "Bassanio," Jack Young as  "Antonio" and Muriel Thurston as  "Salerio," carried their parts well.  Edith Avery, Faye Tompkins, Arthur  Nichols, Fred Alderson and Marjoifr  Learmonth capably supported tro  principals. Earl Christie made a veiy  stern and regal "Duke" in the triaig  The most popular scenes were tha  scene in which Shylock loaned tl.a  money to Antonio and the trial scene.  Unfortunately, the last scene, easily  the most beautiful in the piny, was  ���������harried by an unusual disturbance  from some children in the audience, so  that the- words of the actors were  rendered almost inaudible.

THE   BEYXEyy������   viS3i]STQx<.   ������?. ���������;:���������������&  Outstanding Value���������Always  Net'./Enough For One  WaS  "Fresh from She Gardens  Are We Over���������Governed ?  The current economic depression, and the resultant financial stringency,  ���������^possibly the order of these two conditions should be reversed,���������have led  to the advancement of many suggestions and ideas having aa their object  the effecting of economies in national, provincial and municipal spheres of  government and administration. TJnquestionahly people generally are in  a frame of mind to give that serious consideration to these matters which  they deserve but which would have been denied to them a few years ago.  Mounting national, provincial and mun'cipai debts, resulting in the  twin evils of curtailed public services and higher taxation, reacting adversely  upon all individual and community business, is leading serious-minded men  and women to realize that their must be a reduction in the costs of our governmental business, and that such reduction must be on a fairly large  scale; that the mere lopping off of a few minor services, a percentage  reduction in. salaries, will not suffice; that, on the contrary, savings aggregating many millions of dollars annually must be effected.  The issue is one extending far oeyond the bounds of partisan politics;  rather it rests within the domain of higher politics, that is, it is a vital,  integral part of the true science of government. As such it can and must  be discussed openly, boldly, fearlessly, and to that discussion, and ultimate  consideration of facts and proposals, every thinking man and woman should  be patriotically inspired to make their contribution. It is their own husi-  ness, their own future, as well as the business and future of their Dominion  which is at stake.  Herbert Spencer once wrote: "The man who, expending his energies  wholly on private matters refuses to take part in public affairs, pluming  himself on his vision in minding his own business, is blind to the fact that  his own business is made possible only by the prosperity of all."  There are some people who still pride themselves on remaining aloof  from all participation in public affairs. They even assume a superior attitude and treat with condescension those who take an active interest in  community affairs, politics, and international relationships. But the trend  of events in recent years has shattered the self-complacency of many of  these individuals, and compelled them to recognize the truth of Herbert  Spencer's dictum, that the business, the success, the happiness, of the individual is made possible only to the extent that these things are enjoyed  by all.  Even powerful nations which gloried in and boasted of their "splendid  isolation," their indifference to the fate of other nations and peoples, and  who regarded themselves as self-sufficient unto themselves, are being forced  to alter their views and change their attitude. Geographically and in a  physical sense the world may- be just as big as it ever was, it may even be  bigger in other respects, but it is very much smaller in so far as the relation of one nation to another is concerned. The factor of time in intercommunication has been almost annihilated by wireless, radio, the telephone,  airships, fast steamships, steam and electric railways, and automobiles. A  man living 100 miles away is nearer to us than one only 10 miles away half  a century ago.  We are conforming to these radical changes in many of our personal,  business, economic and social relationships, but in many respects we have  ignored them, in the development of our governmental functions, adhering  rather to systems and policies laid down in by-gone years and in an altogether differently constituted world. Only in recent years have people  been awakening to this fact, and the difficulties with which all peoples and  governments have been confronted within the last two or three years are  forcing upon them the conclusion that it is high time that something was  done to bring governmental institutions into harmony with the new era in  which we are living.  Without assuming to say what ought to "be done, and without attempting even the task of offering suggestions, the writer proposes in succeeding  articles to discuss some of the suggestions that have been advanced in certain quarters.     He proposes to do so with only one object in view, and that  is to encourage readers of this column to give consideration 'to these matters, to think them over, to study them, to discuss them with friends and  neighbors;  in a word, to  assist in creating and developing a live public  opinion in relation to the whole subject of our legislative and administrative  machinery, that is, our entire governmental structure and the effect of it,  as it exists, upon what arc at present regarded as essential revenues and  expenditures, involving not only present but the  ever steadily increasing  taxation of the individual.  Smallest-   Christmas    Pudding  Only Inch In Blarneter  The smallest Christmas pudding in  the world j made entirely of Empire  produce, and weighing less than a4  ounce, was exhibited side by side with  a mammoth 16-ton plum pudding at  the Royal "Albert Hall, Kensington,  S.W., London,  England.  It was "One inch in diameter and  weighed 196 grains, and was,specially  made for the Christmas market in  aid of the People's Dispensary for the  Sick Animals of the Poor, by Miss  | Lily Dalton, who required the assistance of a mathematician and a chemist to work out and weigh the various Ingredients. "It was made/' she  said, "from a recipe haaaded on to  me ��������� by my grandmother.' The 18 ingredients had to be chopped many  times before they were sufficiently  fine.''  Invented Differential Gear  Alexander  Gallinger  Failed   To   Get  Patent For Idea  Alexander Gallinger, 87, inventor of  a differential gear, is dead at his farm  home Oshkosh, Wisconsin. In 1,877,  Gallinger and John Morses, owner of  a foundry there, built, a tractor which  emp-feyed the differential principle.  They drove it from Green Bay to  Madison to claim a $5,000 award offered by tho legislature for demonstrating the invention's practicability.  Gallinger failed to patent his invention and consequently never earned anything from it, outside ttec legislature's award. The differential later  came to be an Important part of the  automobile.  Gallinger was born in Galllngs-  town, Ontario, in. 1844, and went to  Oshkosh at the age of 18.  Adds In Stomach  Cause Indigestion  Create Sourness, Gaa and Pain,  Hew To Treat.

"AT Exhibitions Well Up To  Standard  In the opinion of J. E. Rettie, secretary-manager of the Brandon Provincial Exhibition, the grandstand attractions to play around the western  Canada circuit of clasa "A" exhibitions this yew, are well up to the  standard of other quality programmes  secured in other years. The pageant  selected for evening performances ������s  called "Canada Marching On," and  there is an entire ballet, vocal, and  dancing units connected with this production. It carries ���������4 people, but  this will include 20 girls engaged locally.

Happy  and Go Lucky, comic acrobatics, and  May,, Teddy and Eddy in dancing  numbers.

While the negotiations were going  on 2,400 British and- United States  marines prepared to take over the defences of the international settlement,  and about 10,000 Chinese troops took  up stations.  Eugene Chexi> who recently resigned as China's Foreign Minister, declared the Japanese policy toward  China eventually would mean -war between Japan and the United States.  Tokyo, he said, was determined to  master the Pacific, and to achieve  that aim conflict with the United  States was inevitable.  First, he asserted, Japan looks -to.  unconditional annexation of Manchuria, froth which she can dominate the  entire Asiatic mainland, and then to  the conquest of Australia.  These steps, he said, are "being  carried out hy the mediaeval-minded  military shogunate in the form of a  general staff which is tbe real government of Japan."  "Men of this type- planned the  Chlno-Japanese and Russo-Japanese  wars," said Er. Chen, "now they see  Japan dominating all Asia, including  Australia.  . "Between her and this goal stands  the United States. Therefore, she  plans for war. While other nations  disarm, she arms. Manchuria is but a  preparatory step, for her greatest conflict in which she l-opes to banishT forever the influence of western nations  in the'Pacific Ocean."

Sir Hubert  Wilkins, Australian explorer, plans to  make another expedition next year  under North Polar, iceY  '..,';'I may take a holiday over the  Antarctic in tbe fall and am also considering another submarine expedition under North Polar ice the following summer," he said.  "For my next under-ice  tion," said, Sir Hubert, "I  mind the building of a special type  of submarine which will be hydraul-  ically propelled. In 1925, I discussed  with Vickers engineers a type of submarine which wbuld be suitable for  exploration worlc under Polar ice." He  said he did not know where his new  submarine would be built.  Compressed air, he said,, would be  used for the propulsion of the under-  seas Jjoat, in place of batteries. It  would not be -designed for quick dives.  The submarine would have plenty of  power, but would be geared for slow  speed, as speedy submarines are not  necessary for exploration work.  "I propose to eliminate diving rudders ������nd possibly external propel-  lorss/'' Jae said.  Sir Hubert estimated the cost of  the new vessel at anywhere from  $150,000 to $200,000.

O. Sweezey, retiring  president of the Canadian Forestry  Association, told the convention of  that body here.  Agriculture is dependent upon the  forests, Mr. Sweezey said, and the  great drouth in southern Saskatchewan would not have occurred if  there-were ample forest cover across  the-agricultural .area of the west.  Mixed "farming .on the prairies is  hopeless -without trees, he said, and  artificial means ought to be employed  at once to grow trees. After -sufficient trees have been grown by aid  of irrigation, the natural moisture  wilL be maintained with artificial  means.  The cost of irrigating the dry belts  of the west, planting trees, developing power and pumping water would  not exceed the: losses of two such dry  years as the year 1931, Mr. Sweezey  declared.

"A national policy is needed to  keep, the young men of Canada at  home," he said. "The time will  come when it will be only necessary  to tell the governments- of the provinces that we have a young man  that should b������ encouraged to stay at  home, and it will no longer be a question of cost. We have got to learn  the value of good men. We must  use the first class brains of the nation, for a nation that, uses only the  third and fourth clasa can������t expect  to fop anything more than a third  or fourth, class nation."  No nation is doing more today to  encourage scientific investigation in  co-operation with industry than Great  Britain, Dr. Tory said. "And we will  find that whon this depression is over  that Great Britain will come out on  top. I only hope that we can keep  pace with her," he said.  Foundation of national research  councils throughout the British Empire, he said,. was the outcome of  Britain's efforts to restore the fundamentals of industry.

Approximately Eleven Million i>������>liar������  Saved In Canada Last- Year  Approximately      $11,000,000     was  saved in Canada last year in the cost  of    construction    of    dwellings    and  other buildings, in 61 cities,  by the  reduced cost of materials, the department of trade and commerce reports  .iu a statistical review. This amount  represents -roughly one-fifth of the reduction in the  total value  of building- permits issued   during  the   year  as compared with 1&30.  A report ahows that the aggregate  value of building permits in 61 cities  last year was $110,971,410, a reduction of $55,000,000 from 1930. The-  index of prices of building materials  dropped 20 per cent, during the year.  Compared, however, with figures for  1-920, the peak post war inflation  period, the cost of building materials  has dropped by nearly 46 per cent,  while the total value of permits Issued was only down five per cent.  Detailed figures from 50 of the  61 cities show that permits were issued during- the year for the construction of over 10,900 dwellings and  23,000 other buildings.

Arranged    For  Economical Tout Of Ceylon and  India  Public interest In India and Ceylon  has become intensified in recent  months, an interest which finds expression in an uncsual, "economical'1  tour of Ceylon and India just arranged for the Cunard T._ine in collaboration with the American ExpreaB  "Company. Following- the price trends  of the day, the cost will be kept down  to a minimum. This is said to be the  first time that such an exhaustive tour  of India has become possible at popular prices.  The tour leaves New York on  March 5th in the "Aquitania." The  "Aquitania" will sail direct to the  Mediterranean on what will be her  second cruise this winter to those  waters. The party call at Gibraltar,  visiting the Fortifications, Trafalgar  Cemetery, and other points of interest in the British Fortress. The following day a call at Algiers will enable the tour party to explore the  city thoroughly and to see parts of  Algeria. Crossing the Mediterranean  again, the "Aquitania" will arrive at  Nice on the 14th, two days will be  spent along the Riviera, the party  proceeding by motor coach to Marseilles.  Here the Ceylon and" India party  will embark on. ihe s.s. Mongolia,  17,000-ton P. & O. liner, formerly  carrying first and second class and  now converted to accommodate only  tourist class.  Colombo is reached on the 2nd of  April and the most interesting parts  of Ceylon will be visited during the  three days spent there. The party  then proceed on their Indian tour, arriving at Madras on the 8th and after  visiting "the5 city proceeding by express to Calcutta. After two days in  the former Indian capital, the party  proceed by. mountain railway to I>ar-  jeeiingr, 7,500 feet high in the Himalayas. The usual trip will be made to  view the sunrise over Mount Everest  and the Himalayas. After returning  to Calcutta the party leave's for  Benares, one of the world's oldest  cities, thence to Agra where a visit  will be made to the Taj Mahal, the  Fort and the Palaces. There will also  be a visit to the deserted city of  Fatehpur Sikri, returning via Akbar's  Tomb at Sikandra. Three days will  be spent in Delhi, then returning to  the coast to Bombay, visiting the  colossal Caves of Elephanta and the  Towers of Silence, strange "burial  places of the Parsees.  For the return journey thc tour  party will sail from Bombay on the  new P. & O. liner "Strathaird," 22,000-  tons gross, calling at Marseilles.

Pinkharn's Vegetable Compound  Explanations and Comments  A Test Of Allegiance,, verses 31, 32.  ���������Jesus has been speaking of Himself  as the Light of the World and John  records the fact that many then believed on Him. Next he tells that  Jesus therefore spoke to "those Jews  that had believed Him." " 'Believe on'  implies surrender as well as intellectual assent. Having stated that some  of $the hearers 'believed on' Jesus,  John bethinks himself in verse 31 that  others had only 'believed'���������not 'believed on.' They had given a sort of  assent, but had not really surrendered themselves." * These men Jesus  tested when He said to them: 'Tf ye  abide in My Word," if you surrender  yourselves wholly to My guidance,  and make my words the standard of  your conduct, "then ye are truly my  disciples." It was not enough for  them to believe that Jesus spoke the  truth in claiming to be the Messiah;  they must accept Him as their Messiah.

Higher Taxation  Financial   Institutions   In Saskatchewan To Contribute Greater  Share Of Revenue  Such Saskatchewan financial institutions as banks, trust, loan and  mortgage companies, are going- to  contribute a greater share than they  do now to the revenue of the province, it was officially learned.  From such sources, under the provisions of the Corporations Taxation  Act, Saskatchewan now derives a  revenue of slightly more than $400,-  000, a large percentage coming from.  insurance companies.  In the effort to balance the budget  by increasing revenues, and reducing  some forms of public services, the  government proposes to make amendments to the Corporations Taxation  Act with 3s view of bringing the  revenue from that source to upwards  of $800,000,. the banks to pay a fair  share of the 100 per cent, increase.

December output was 171,811 tons, compared to  177,204 tons in December of the previous year.

"They were wonderfully happy together there. Not in the least���������as 1  suppose they ought to have been -���������  an awful example of poetic justice!"  rshe declared.

They would have loathed it.  Glyn used to say that anything which  savoured so much of domesticity  would kill romance!" .  "That sounds like all that I have  ever heard about him," said Tormarin, smiling too. "So does the 'House  of Dreams-Corae-True;' It's a charming- idea."  "He took it from one of Jacqueline's  songs. She had a glorious voice, you  know."  "Yes, so I've heard.    I suppose you  have inherited it?"  She shook her head.  "No, I wish. I had.   But Jacqueline  insisted on trying to teach me singing, all the same.   Poor dear!

As Tormarin listened to Jean's  youngv eager voice, his face softened  and some of the tired lines in it  seemed to smooth themselves out.  "Little comrade," he said gently,  and sh*5 felt her breath quicken as  he called her again by the name  which, he had used at Montavan ���������  and once since, -when they had come  suddenly face to face at Coombe  Bavie Station.

It seemed to Jean that, as he spoke,  the wall which he had built up between them since she came to Staple  crumbled away. This was the same  man she had known at Montavan,  whose hands reached out to hers  across some fixed dividing line which  neither he nor she might pass.- She  knew now what that dividing line  must be���������the shadow fixing by a past  love, his love for Nesta Freyne which  had ended in hopeless tragedy.  There must always be a limit set  to any friendship of theirs. So much  ho had implied at their first meeting.  But, since then, he had taken even  that friendship from her, substituting  a deliberate indifference against which  she had struggled in vain.  And now, without knowing quite  how it had come about, the barrier  was down.

The tone of both addresses: was one  of    quiet   optimism,   exemplified    by  Mr. Wilson's remark, "While I do not'  wish to voice any prediction .as to the  date of business recovery, it will be  very disappointing if as improvement  does not take place "during 1932. The  leaders of politics and finance in the  principal countries    are    capable    of  bringing  this  about and the   indictment against any who block the way  wiU bs severe indeed." The President  pointed out that with quoted values  of most securities' well under  their  intrinsic worth,   improvement   could  be expected as  and. when measures  were taken which would result in a  real return of confidence in the United  States. Earlier in his remarks he had  referred to the splendid record of the  Canadian banking  system  during &  time when disorganization in finance  was accentuating the   depression,   in  many other countries.     He expressed  the opinion that the relatively_satis-  factbry position, of Canada could be  attributed in no small degree to the  stability of our banking organization  and the way- in which industry had  been supported.  Before moving the adoption of the  report Sir Herbert referred with profound regret to, the death, of Mr.  Neill, after a lifetime spent in the  service of the bank, "in his passing  the bank has lost a wise councillor,  his associates a loyal friend, and  Canada an eminent banker and distinguished citizen."  After dealing briefly with the situation in agriculture and the principal  EaanUfacturingf-industries'K Sir Herbert  referred to the plaps^TEviiich; are under  ~aV&y;Sox''~&?o&^  pal newsprint c^mpaiiies in Eastern  Canada, and expressed, the opinion  that the development though difficult  of accomplishment was a constructive  one and highly desirable if Canada  was to continue to maintain the supremacy to which she is entitled by  reason of her natural advantages.  future with confidence."  General Manager's Address.  Mr. M. W. Wilson, Vice-President  and General Manager, stated that  maintenance of the Bank's assets at  a figure as high as $825,000,000 reflected not only the conservation of  existing business but.also the acquisition of new and desirable connections.  Ke referred to. the substantial oversubscription of the Dominion of Canada National Service I_oai_ as an  achievement of which our government  and Canadians generally may well be  proud.  Strong JLlquld Position Maintained  The liquid position of the bank was  maintain-, d at substantially the same  ratio as & year ago, quickly realizable  assets being more than 48% of liabilities to the public. In referring to  the enviable record of the Canadian  banking system during the period of  world depression, Mr.; Wilson said:  "Once again the ability of the Canadian banking- system to take care  of ��������� the needs of the countr-" has been  clearly demonstrated. The type of  organization under which they operate enables our banks to take a broad  view of the transactions that come  before them and I think it will be admitted that the disposition has been  to deal with problems in a sympathetic  and constructive manner."  Railways.  The appointment of a, railway commission was mentioned with approval  and the belief expressed that such a  commission, should be capable of  bringing in recommendations which  would in large measure solve the  present very serious situation caused  by uneconomic competition and duplication or services. The President  stated "Savings to the qountry of  from $60,000,000 to $75,000,000 a year*  are possible and this without impairment pf service to the public."  Imperial Conference.  Pointing out that as long- as other  nations raise intolerable tariff barriers  against British Empire goods it is  necessary that the different parts of  the Empire should protect themselves  by concerted action, he expressed  hope in the results of tho Imperial  Conference to be held in Ottawa, provided careful analysis and close atudy  produced a scientific tariff structure  which would stimulate -reciprocal  Empire trade without handicapping  home industry.

He stressed the fact  that, both Internal and external  revenue had been reduced hy tho decline in the activity of trade and that  excessive expenditures by governments and municipalities had placed  a heavy burden of interest payments  on the people "There never was a  time in our history whon lt was so  necessary' to avoid extravagance of  every kind, and governments, Federal,  Provincial and Municipal, should follow Uio aplojiidM b;:xiijuju.ii>!o me_ by the  British National Government in reducing the coat of ndminlatratlon and  balancing their budflret"  Closing: his romarke SBr, Herbert  said In. part "It haa beem. said that  It Is.darkost just*bofore the dawn,  and in previous depressions conditions havo aoomed moat discouraging  at a time when Improvement had already sot in, Tho violence ol. tho de  prcaalon munt of Itself tend to ^to  Business In  Other  Countries.  "Entirely satisfactory," were the  words used in describing the bank's  experience during the iaM year in the  foreign countries where it operates.  Mr. Wilson pointed out that the  Bank's foreign branches have never  been.allowed to expose themselves to  risk of loss through exchange fluctua-  tioriss and as a. result their experience  during tne last year had been entirely satisfactory.  Commodity .Levels.  The General Manager expressed ���������.  the opinion that the restoration of  commodity price levels to the basis of  1924-1928 was essential to a really  satisfactory recovery ln world business. He made favourable reference  to the anti-deflation measures now being considered by the United States  Congress and felt that they justified  the hope that corrective forces would  soon be at work in that country.  Business Psychology  "As the depression continues the  factor of business psychology is one  of constantly increasing importance"  Mr. Wilson declared. Distrust and  lack of confidence are largely respon- ���������  sible for the extremes to which world  business has gone. He indicated that  we in Canada had been particularly  fortunate In this respect and said,  "Confidence in our country and in our  ability to solve the problems that  present themselves is above the average audi in my opinion is amply justified by our past record and future  prospects." Lack of international  confidence was the main obstacle in  the way to world-wide business recovery. Mr. Wilson went on to express tho opinion that confidence  could too,restored by co-operation between the leaders of politics and finance in the principal countries. Signs  are not lacking that progress may ba  made along these lines and this farmed, tho basis for his statement "While  I do not wish to venture any prediction as to tho date of business recovery, It will be vory disappointing If  an improvement does not take place  during 1032."  Mr. Wilson pointed out in vigorous  terms that we- must not got into the  frame of mind In which wo think of  losses aa pertaining to all business  activities.
