This would enable  the farmer to fit his crops and methods of tillage to the variations in rain-,  fall and would permit the stockman  to increase or decrease his herds or  to vary hSs- supplies of forage with,  the -wet and dry phases of the cycle.  In short, the cycle management of all  the basic practices of the West would  provide the maximum insurance  against.loss or disaster and would  afford the greatest possible annual returns."

Clements in a very able  work on "Plant Indicators" makes  certain observations on conditions in  the western United States which are  equally applicable to conditions' in  Saskatchewan.  "A study of settlement in the West  since  1865  reveals the  fact  that  St  corresponds  more or less  closely to  the  climatic  cycle.     The   exceptions  are afforded by the rapid inruslx after  the homestead act, the Klnkald Act,  etc., or after the opening of new regions.       The   general  movement of  settlers has advanced and receded in  almost  perfect  agreement with,  the  wet  phases  and  drought  periods  of  the climatic    cycle    (of ' Brueclcner,  Huntington, 1914: 89).   A few years  of unusuaL rainfall have afforded unscrupulous    real-estate    dealers   and  immigration commissioners on opportunity to  dispose of even the most  worthless land.    The ensuing drought  period then led  to crop failure  and  the wholesale abandonment of the region, to bo followed by another influx of settlers during the next wet  phase.     In moro than one region of  the West this process has been repented three or four times, nnd its disastrous operation will continue- until  the States and the National Government recognize tlio necessity of proper land classification and of adequate  rogulation of settlement.  "The knowledge that drought poi'-  iods will recur is Indispensable to any  accurate and successful classification  of land and to the economic mnnage-  mont of dry-fm*m, grazing range, or  forest. Those results, which wins of  the first importance for the west, do  not depend ncceRi-wirily upon tho ae-  oimaoy of predictions based upon tho  aun-spot cycle. They are clearly Indicated by tho actual oxporlonoe of  the last CO y^ara, which not onEy confirms the recurrence of drought periods, but al������a auggeats tho Interval.  Howover, it ia clear that It would be  of. the greatest value to bo able to  forecast the date, duration, and Inter.-  Hity of each drought period with aome  accuracy, tin well aa to anticipate the  Im.k'eafiln^ rainfall, of the wet |.1mfw.

Explanations and Comments  The Meeting Of Jesus and the Woman    Of    Samaria,    verses 1-9.���������On  nearing Sychar the disciples went on  to the village to buy food while Jesus  sat down on the curb of Jacob's Well  to rest. A woman approached. "She  was like a waterlogged ship, not a  total wreck, but incapable of movement, and needing both to be towed  and steered into harbor." Great was  her surprise when Jesus, a Jew, asked  her, a Samaritan woman, to draw  water for Him.  The Offer Of living Water, verses  1.0-14.���������Jesus replied in words full of  yearning tenderness: *'If you knew  what God's blessings are, and how  freely He gives them: if you knew  that He who speaks to you has it in  His power to give them all; you  would be the speaker then, and He  would not refuse you, He would give  you the living water."  The woman must have been familiar with the figure of speech that  Jesus used, and must have known  that they held a hidden meaning, but  she pretended to treat them literally  and said that the well was deep, He  had nothing with which to draw up  the water; was He greater than their  father Jacob who had dug the well  and used it?  "This water quenches thirst for but  a short time," solemnly Jesus said;  "the water which I give becomes in,  one a well of water that springs into  life eternal." Thus by a figure _of  speech, rather than by a declaration  of doctrine, Jesus taught that when  one is "born anew." he finds perfect  satisfaction. .     ������������������    -  Under Conviction, verse 15.���������Has  some gleam of Jesus' meaning entered the woman's mind when she asks  for this water, that she might never  thirst, and might be saved the trouble of coming there to "draw? The  water of life is not be had for the  mere nonchalant asking���������it must be  thirsted for. "She understands tbe  gift now, but she neither understands  it rightly nor desires it rightly. Our  L,ord, like a surgeon, must cleanse  the sore before He heals it, must  deepen the wound before He can. close  tt. But He would, have her convict  herself. So without making any  charge against her, He answers, 'Go,  call thy husband*."���������R. C. Gillie.  "I have no husband," the .woman  answered. "Thou hast well said, for  thoa hast had five husbands; and he,  whom thou now hast is not thy husband"; this knowledge of her life convinced the woman that Jesus was a  prophet.

This  was reported by the United  States agriculture department which  also said the 1931 wheat crop of Rus- -  sia,  the    world's    largest    producer, -  "may definitely be considered a poor '  one."

Spring wheat  is the most important.  "A. further significant factor in the-  situation," the department's Berlin observer reported, "is the announcement -  by the Soviet authorities that they ������n- -  tend to concentrate on quality rather-  than quantity."  Summing up the  1931 wheat harvest, he added:. .

CHAPTER XL  *fThe Sins Of the Fathers*������������������"  A few days later, Jean, coming in  - from a long tramp across country in  ^company with Nick and a half a dozen dogs of various breeds, discovered  "Tom_ar_n lounging in a chair by the  fire.      He was in riding kit, having  just returned from visiting an outlying corner of the estates where his  " bailiff had suggested that a hew plantation might be made, and Jean eyed  "his long supple figure -with secret approval. X.ike most well-built Englishmen, he looked his best in kit that  _-demanded the   donning   of   breeches  .and leggings.  A fine rain was falling out of doors,  -and beads of moisture clung to Jean's  -clothes and sparkled in the blown tendrils of russet hair which had escaped  from beneath, the little turban hat she  was -wearing.   Apparently,   however,  her appearance did   _K>t   rouse   Tormarin to any reciprocal apprec_ationf  :fo_",  after bestowing the  briefest of  ���������glances upon her as she entered, he  averted his eyes, concentrating his attention upon the   misty   ribands   of  smoke that drifted upwards from his  ���������cigarette.  that the weather has broken so completely." ._   .  "No. It's April next month���������supposedly, springtime, you know," returned Blaise indifferently.  He, seemed; disinclined tp talk, and  Jean eyed- him 'contemplatively. His  attitude .Ttovvards heir baffled he r , as  mucii "as ever;' He'^Was'-',-\uxfiailirigly.-  courteous and considerate, but he remained, :. nevertheless, " unmistakably  aloof,, avoiding- her whenever it was  politely possible, and when- it was not,  treating her with a cool, neutrality of  manner that was as complete a contrast to Ids demeanour when they  were together at Montavan as could  well be imagined. Indeed, sometimse  Jean almost wondered if the events  of that day they spent amid the  snows had really taken place���������they  seemed so far away, so entirely unrelated to her present life,, notwithstanding the fact that she .was in  daily contact with the man who had  shared them with her.  "It was rather uncomplimentary of  you not to com������ skating with us a  solitary once," she remarked at last,  an accent of reproach in her voice.  "Was my performance on the rink at  Montavan so execrable that you felt  you couldn't risk it again?"  He looked up, his glance meeting  hers levelly.  "You've phrased it excellently," he  replied briefly. "I felt I couldn't risk  it,"  A sudden flush mounted to Jean's  face. There was no misunderstanding  the significance that underlay the  curt words, which, as she was vibrantly aware, bore no relation whatever to her skill, or absence of it, on  the ice.  Blaise made no endeavour to relieve the awkward silence that ensued. Instead, his eyes rested upon  her with a somewhat quizzical expression, as though he were rather  entertained than otherwise by her evident confusion. Jean felt her indignation rising.  "It is fortunate that other people  are not so���������nervous," she said disdainfully- "Otherwise I should find  myself as isolated as a fever hospital."  "It is fortunate indeed," he agreed  politely.       .'^    'r.t...  In;the course?'Of the three weeks  which had elapsed since her arrival-at  Staple, Jean had dared several similar passages-at-arms-with her host  Womon-like, she was bent on getting  behind his guard of reticence, on  forcing him into- an explanation of his  -JBPHIUIRS.,  ��������� -TS".

But her  efforts to elucidate the cause of the  change in Blaise Tormarin were  about as prolific of result as the _efforts.-<off a butterfly at stone-breaking.  . Fortunately for the preservation of  peace, at this juncture there came the  sound of voices, and Lady Anne entered the room, accompanied "by a  visitor. Her clever, grey eyes flashed  quickly from Jean's'flushed face to  that of her son, but, if she sensed the  electricity in the atmosphere, she  made no comment.  "Blaise, my dear, here is Judith,"  she said pleasantly. "I found her wandering forlornly in the lanes, so I  drove her back here. She has just returned from town, and for some reason her car wasn't at the station to  meet her."  "I wired home saying what time I  should reach Coombe Eavie," exclaim-  her tea  you?"..  "Oeoffrey?

He's dividing his time hetween  London and -Leicestershire���������London,  while that Jong frost stopped all  hunting."  Mrs. Craig' was evidently on a footing of long-established intimacy .with  the Staple household, and Jean, listening quietly to the interchange of  news and -of little personal happenings, regarded her with rather critical interest. She was not altogether  sure that she liked her, but she was  quite sure that,, wherever, her lot  might be cast, Judith Craig would  never occupy the position of a nonentity. She had considerable charm  of manner, and there was a quite unexpected fascination about her smile  ���������unexpected, because, when in repose, her thin lips lay folded together in a straight and somewhat forbidding line, whereas the moment they  relaxed into a smile they assumed the  most delightful curves, and two little  lines, which should have been dimples but were not, cleft each cheek-on  either side of the mouth.  -All at once Mrs. Craig turned to  Jean as though she had made up her  mind about something over which she  had been hesitating.  "Have I seen you anywhere before?" she asked, her charming smile  softening the abruptness of the question. "Your face is so extraordinarily familiar."  Jean shook her head.  "I don't think so," she answered.  "I'm sure I should remember you if  we met anywhere. Besides I've lived  abroad all my life; this is only my  first visit to England."  "I think I can explain." said Lady  Anne. There was a deliberateness  about her manner that suggested she  was about to make a statement which  she was aware would be of some special interest to at least one of the  party. "Jean is Glyn Peterson's  daughter; so of course you see a likeness, Judith."  (To Be Continued.)  ICK HIADACHI?  J.T is not necessary to give-in  to headaches. It is just a bit old-  fashioned!

B.   O.  *  w  ORANC  It 3s !n times of adversity rather than of prosperity that the true  character and strength, of men, communities and nations is demonstrated.  Th* -world learns few lessons when thing's are booming" and prosperity  blossoms on every hand. When the sun shines and soft winds blow people  are content to idle along, satisfied with things as they are. It is when the  sun is hidden behind the storm, clouds and the tempest rages that men,  communities and nations are tested. It is then they begin to learn, bitter  though, the lessons may be.  Galling as the present world-wide depression undoubtedly is, bringing  loss and suffering in its train, it is probably serving a useful purpose sn  teaching the world a few lessons and re-emphasizing a few old truths,  which, in the days of their prosperity, men and nations apparently forgot;  at least they ignored and gave no heed to them. Now these truths and  lessons are being remembered and re-learned, and possibly, because the  present world depression is more widespread and more severe than any of  its predecessors, the lessons it is teaching will be taken a. bit more serioxtsly  and have a more lasting and beneficial effect than ever before.  Yet these truths and lessons are as old as this old world itself. The  truths are fundamental r the lessons are stern and unshakeable.  One truth is that no man, no community, no nation can live unto itself  alone. TS.ot one of them is self-sufficient. Each 5s dependent to a greater  or less extent on all others. God so made the world and pi. ny man, notwithstanding his boasted powers and strength cannot alter it. This truth  is becoming more widely recognized and accepted every day this depression  lasts.     It, and it alone, is driving the resultant lesson home.  Another truth that is once again growing into acceptance is that mankind is of greater importance and truer worth than anything and everything  that man can invent and develop. Man has used his God-given intellect and  powers to invent and develop machines primarily intended to be the servants  of man, to supply his needs and cater to his comforts and well-being. But  in his eagerness to- i__ve___, and develop, and create a machine-age,���������an age  that was to be all-golden for him,���������man has over-reached himself until  today, an many -ways, thc machine has become the master and man the  servant.  To serve & machine-age. man has built himself huge cities wherein  people live together like rabbits in a warren; packed like sardines in a box.  Individuals have largely lost their individuality in the mass, with initiative  remaining with the few. The friendliness of the smali town and the rural  parts has been lost in the great cities where neighbor hardly knows neighbor.  That self-respect and self-confidence and initiative inseparable from being a  personality amongst one's neighbors has been largely lost in becoming a  . mere unit in a city's teeming population.  Children grow up today without having: enjoyed childhood's rights of a  natural life amidst natural surroundings; all about them is artificial, and,  bred in such surroundings and atmosphere, life itself becomes artificial.  The lesson that the world, perhaps, is beginning to learn is that we  must get back to first things, and place them first in our scheme of life.  The height of a city man's ambition should not be to amass greater wealth  than he can profitably ahd beneficially use, and put forth his life's endeavors  to making his city larger and larger,���������not necessarily greater and finer.  Many are beginning to realize that the huge city is an evil, not a blessing;  that man was not created to live and struggle in such surroundings. That,  on the contrary, the small community is by far the happiest and the cheapest place in which to live, and that it confers advantages and pays dividends  in health and contentment unknown in huge centres of populations where  thousands live from hand to mouth in uncouth surroundings and with little  or no prospect of bettering one's conditions.  Economic conditions of this depression have driven hundreds of young  men and women, attracted by the glitter of the cities, back to the old home,  on tlie farm, in village and small town. For the time being, because world  conditions are what they are, they may be denied many things they would  like, but" the wisest of them will stay there, and in thc long run they wiil  bo tho happier and better off for the staying.

A Calgary despatch asserts that  efforts are being made to have Alberta take over the police-work of  the city, while the R.C.M.P. assume  the work now performed by the Provincial Police.  The statement in the despatch, that  the provinces .generally were negotiating with the Dominion to the end that  the police-work throughout the country might eventually come within the  control of the R.C.M.P. could not be  confirmed.  Some three years . ago the  R.C.M.P. assumed the duty of policing Saskatchewan, taking over the  work that had been formerly done  by the Provincial Police there. A_a  agreement was arrived at between  the Dominion and the Province whereby the latter undertook to contribute  a lump sum to the federal treasury  over a- period of years in order to -defray the expenditures incurred in the  arrangement.
