The  Canadian Wheat Pool, with its three units in the. provinces*, of Manitoba,  Saskatchewan and Alberta, now has a tota]>naembership of 125,000 farmers,  who,., control, 13,230,000 of the 21,000,000 acres sown to wheat last year in  tho three, prairie provinces.

Meanwhile Manitoba>. and Saskatchewan were organizing pools. In.'the  fall of 1924. they had perfected provincial organizations and the three provinces then merged their selling strength into one giant marketing organization, known as "The Canadian, Co-operative Wheat Producers, "Limited." %*his  agency is incorporated under a Federal charter, with vers*- wide powers."-Its  function is to take delivery of the wheat from, each of the respective provincial pools and to place it on the markets of the world in such a manner  as to secure a price commensurate with the natural law of supply and demand. Each of the three porvineial pools is responsible for gathering the  wheat of its own members and placing! it at the disposal ofthe central selling  agency, which is controlled by a board of nine directors composed of the  president, vice-president and one director of each provincial pool.  The largest proportion of the wheat Is sold by the* selling agency to Importers arid-buyers in different countries of the world* for the agency has  direct seliiMjg connections writh every wheat importing country and its own  representatives in 51 ports of the world-. The funds which accrue frOm the  sales are disbursed to the-- members of the* three pools. This method of  handling wheat provides a large volume t_hrough one. agency and reduces  the cost of operation to a ininimun^.. ���������   .  - It is difficult, if not impossible, to estimate in dollars and cents the  d'-tual Increase in the price of wheat attributable to the operations of the  -wheat pool, but the Pool, controlling's it does over 50 per cent of Canada's  exportable surplus, has the opportunity of preventing large volumes/of  wheat being rushed on. to the market and creating a- glut which ineA'tfcably  forces prices down'. The strength of the Pool lies in its stabilizing power and  in its  facilities for selling in great quantities and in all countries.  This vsat co-operative organization of farmers grew out of the experience  of fixed pi-ices, for wheat established by the Canadian Government d.uring the  wa'r, regulated by an official body known as the Wheat Board. Immediately  after the 'war the farmers of "Western Canada urged the Government to  maintain ihe Wheat Board, but as it had been brought into being and had  functioned under a War Measure Act, the Machinery for its maintenance  automatically passed out of existence with the signing of the Peace Treaty.  The wheat producers of the Canadian West, learning that the Wheat Board  could not continue, began to realize the necessity of an organization of their  own to handle the marketing of their wheat in a way that would prevent  a too  wide fluctuation and secure a better stabilization of prices.  Through the Pool the wheat is handled at cost and therefore at ac-  .-���������aviiig to the farmer. The Central felling Agency with its direct connection.; is able to eliminate some of the handling charges between producers.  and consumer that are incidental under any other method of marketing.  Moreover, the Pool relieves the farmer of the. necessity of guessing  I Vi������! right time to sell his grain and assures him of the average price for the  year on all wheat it sells. This orderly marketing avoids the daisastrous  i-ffeer.s of the flooding of the market in the fall which prevailed under the  old  system.  The Wheat Pool in Western Canada is a notable example of the ad-  vum'i'nii-i-t. made by the farmers of this stage. Already it has shown the*  po^n/ilLies and. advantages of co-operative marketing. Under the old sys-  t.-rn the iarnu-r "-old his wheat and took what the market offered. In the  fool system h>- delivers his grain when convenient and obtains the average  ���������.ri.-..- ot" rli.* selling period, together with the saving in the handling costs.  Thf Pa il price to every member i.s the price at Fort. William, less handling  eh.u-ses   unit   fr.-ight charge.".     The  latter,  of  course, vary, according to  the  the  movement  along.  .

May Obtain Relief by Enriching  the Blood Through the Use of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  In the days    of    our    grandfathers  rheumatism was thoright to be the unavoidable  penalty of middle  life  and  old age. Almost every  elderly person  had   rheumatism,   as   well   as   many  young  people.     It   was   thought  that  rheumatism  was   due  to exposure  to  cold, and dampness, and it was treated  with liniments and    hot    applications  which sometimes    gave temporary relief  but did  not remove  the trouble.  In those days there were, many rheumatic cripples.    Now medical science  understands that'rheumatism Is a disease of. the blood and that with good  red blood, any man or woman of any  age can  defy rheumatism.  There are  now   many  elderly   people   who  have  never felt a twinge of rheumatism, because they have  kept their blood  In  good   condition,  and   there  are  many  who have conquered it by building up  their weak, watery blood.    The blood-  enriching  qualities   of **I)r.     Williams*  Pink  Pills  is   becomiapg    every    year  more widely., known    and    the  general use of these pills has robbed  rheumatism  of  Its terrors.      At    the  first, sign   of thin,   impure   blood  protect  yourself against   the   ravages . of  disease by taking Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.    They have helped thousands���������  if you give them a fair trial -.tjjey will  not disappoint you.   Their value in the  case of rheumatism is proved by the  statement    of     Mr.     Finlay    Beaton,  Blackstone,  N.S.,  who   says:���������"I   feel  it a duty, to tell you of the wonderful  benefit I derived from the use of Dx.  Williams'   Pink   Pills.     I  suffered untold   agony   from   rheumatism  and   a  run-down  condition.  The   trouble  left,  me Incapable of work of any-kind, aitd  for a part Of the  time' I was unable  to  move without the  assistance of a  cane.    I.toolc different medicine from  doctors, 'vand< also other remedies that  were recommended, but   did   not   improve and had about given  up hope .pf  getting  better when a friend advised  me  to try Dr. Williams* Pink Pills.

With the exception of comparatively narrow strips  of land, along the banks of riv^ra,  streams and ��������� lakes, the prairies were  treeless lip to the last. centul*y, according to Prof. Jffeicson, Who in-a state-  ment Quoted 7LaVeranch-ye, the first  white man to explore western Canada;*  as expressing his surprise at the lack  of _ foliage on the prairies proper  whereas some of the districts through  wliich LaVerandrye passed are how  practically covered with trees.  So far, the spread Of the poplar has  been the most remarkable to be noted, according to Prof. Jackson. All  through Saskatchewan* "poplar islands'" are forming and increasing in  size, and it���������appears that the poplar  spreads all the more rapidly as new-  land is broken for agricultural purposes. It is only a matter of a few generations until there will be no such thing  as a treeless stretch or^prairie of any  great extent.    Prof. Jackson states:  While the poplar is easily first Jn  the way it adapts itself to the corffli-  tions of the prairies, satisfactory results are being obtained with oalc and  elm.

B.C., FRIDAY, DEC;   3  LETTERS TOTHE EDITOR  -��������������������������� -���������/--���������-  Reply to * Interested Reader'.  Editor Review:  SrJ^���������After reading the letter  last week I could not refrain from  giving my opinion of this continued  hallowe'en affair. As the last part  of Interested Header's letter was  most reserved to my opinion I shall  discuss it.  Not saying the first part was  anywhere near ray liking. Speaking of   Mr.   Jentz,   th'e   Eriekson  WATER NOTICE  TAKE NOTICE that Creston Reclamation  Company, Limited, whose address is Creston,  B.C., will apply for a license to divert the Goat  River for the purpose of lowering the flood  water level of a portion of the Kootenay Flats  The depth it is proposed .to lower the level of  the water is a. maximum of twenty feet.  The point at which the Goat River will he  ���������diverted from the Flats is located at the southeast ouarter of Section 4, Township 8, Kootenay District, and the water so diverted into the  Kootenay River by an artificial waterway.  The reason for the proposed diversion and  lowering the flood water level 4s the reclamation of a portion of the Kootenay Flats.  This notice was posted on the. ground  on the 10th day of November, 1926. A copy of  this notice ana an application pursuant thereto  and to the Water Act will "be filed ih the office  of the Water Recorder at Nelson, B.C.  Objections to the application mav be filed  with the said Water Recorder, or with the  Comptroller of Water Rights. Parliament  Buildings, "Victoria, B.C., within thirty days  after the first appearance of this notice in a  local newspaper.  Date of the first publicntion of this notice is  November 12,1926, **-*'  CREST-ON RECLAMATION COMPANY,  Limited, Applicant.  By A. L. McCULLOCfH, Agent.  Notice of Application for the Approval  of Reclamation of a Portion of the  Kootenay Flats.  TAKE NOTICE that Creston Reclamation  Company, Limited;'will apply to the Minister  of Lands tor the approval of the plans ofthe  works to be constructea for the reclamation of  a portion of the Kootenay Flats.  The plans and specifications of the said works  will be f yled in the office of the Comptroller of  Water Rights at Victoria, and duplicates of  such plana and specifications will he open to  inspection in the office of the Water Recorder  at Kelson on or about the 1st day of December,  1926.  attending school in his room, will  think it is strange thing if he keeps  up his present ways of acting, and  is kept on by the trustees.  Perhaps discipline ts needed in  Eriekson school, but at any rate  not the kind these teachers try to  enforce. About the Christmas  entertainment if Interested Reader  does not approve of a Christmas  concert that is his or her affair, but  I think if one cannot have more  respect for the children that take  part in the entertainment than to  write about in papers and criticize  their music and such like as noise,  or foolish rubbish that hurts one's  ears, they are- not up to Kjueh.  He or she also said that it was  far better to study more and not  ���������waste time practising for a concert.  As far as the time spent on practising goes it appeared tefmake little  difference to the Entrance class  last year for the studies they miss*5  ed, for they made up for it at the  finals. It was merely the difference between a good teacher and a  poor one. Too bad about these  poor, weak minded teachers having  too much strain on their brain if  they have a concert. H. P. L.

MINERAL  ACT  FORM F>  Total Assets Increase by Seven  Miilions���������Deposits Pass the  $100,000,000 Mark���������Profits Increased by over $100 000.  The 52nd annual statement of the  Imperial Bank of Canada? indicates  in a very marked degree the improved business conditions which  have pertained in Canada for some  months past. The larger earnings  and the greater demand for loans  and the splendid increase in depos  its tell a story of greater -activity  in business and the increased pros  perity of the people.  The Bank's profits for the   year,  reached $1,265,776.31,   over $100,  000 better   than in    the   previous  year's -statement.  Deposits for'the first time in the  Bank's history passed the $100,000:,-  000 mark by a very handsome  margin. Lb is particularly inter  eating to note that interest bearing  deposits stand at over $82,000,000,  pointing clearly to the popularity,  of the Bank with the Savings  Bank depositor.  As in all previous statements of  the Imperial Bank of Canada, the  liquid position is a marked feature,  but in the present statement the  figures are even considerably in  advance of those for several years  past. Cash assets are over %27,200,-  000 while quickly realizable assets,  whieh h ve increased by $5,200,000  during the year now stand at $69,-  372,579 02 or sixty per cent of the  total of the Bauk,s liabilities to the  public. Total assets have increased by $7,000,000. and are shown as  $ I HI. 832.309.65. Increased borrowings, indicating improved com  mercial activity, are shown in  current loans whioh now stand at  $55:186,970.88. almost $5,000,000  greater than in the Statement of a  Certificate of Improvements  NOTICE OF APPLICATION  Vt'rjrtlttan, fCootrnay Warrior, and *~)ld  year ago.

AGRICULTURAL and INDUSTRIAL  M  President .and General Manager Imperial Bank  of  Canada review   Canadian  Business  Conditions at Annual Meeting of Shareholders.  ��������� BANK*$ STRONG POSITION  Mr. Peleg Howlsnd, the 7 President,-in his address said, in part:  "The country has again been  Messed with abundant field crops,  though not eaual to those of last  ''���������year. ���������  Natural Resources Develop. ���������  "The fisheries have yielded well,  the salmon canners In Britisii Columbia having had another successful year. The fishing industry is of  much - importance to Canada, but  especially to the Maritime Provinces and British Columbia.  "Mining in both British Columbia and Ontario has had farther development. Development in the  Rouyn District, in the Province of  Quebec, ls going on, but has not yet  reached the point where there has  been actual production. An extension of the T. & N. O. Railway into  that region would glye this Province a better chance to benefit .from  the work going On there.., Mining  withosmelting and refining, which  follow in its wake,- is of growing  importance to Canada, and, as It  grows,must attract in. an increasing degree attention to this country, both from the Investing and  speculating public.  Pulp and Papei* Output.  "The output of pulp and newsprint has increased largely, and is  now considerably in excess of that  of the United States, and, the -expansion BttU goes on. The output  bids fair to double that of 1926 l������  a., short time. The year has been  a profitable one to this industry.  Basic Wealtlk.  "The farm, the foreati the mine  and the fisheries are the four bases  upon which the prosperity of this  country rests. When it is understood that in the twelve months  ^ ending on September 30th,last this  . country's exports; of agricultural  and vegetable products and animal  and animal products, amounted In  value to $788,000,000, and wood,  wood products and paper to $284,-  000.000, in all '11.072.000,000 out  of total exports of $1,807,000,000,  the importance of these two industries to the country can be realized,  and also, perhaps, the wlBdom of a  fiscal policy which by reducing their  costs of-1 operation -will encourage  their expansion, together with ttujt  of mining and of fishing.  A Bettor Outlook.  "While th������ -Indices, flueb as car  loadings, building permits, construction contracts, merchandise  shipments, savings deposits,* bank  loans and so forth, all indicate that  the existence of better business and  the activities surrounding our enormous exports and imports must result in good returns to many, my  observation would lead to the belief  that there is not tho general prosperity in tho industrial and distributing buainesa of the conhtry that  is desirable, tho cost of carrying on  being still out of proportion to pro  lit, but some progress has been  made, und lt is not unreasonable to  oxpoct further improvement, for wc  have had in the ton months of the  calendar year some reduction in our  national dobt other than that Incurred on behalf of tho publicly  owned railways; a reduction in the  Dominion taxation, with tho promise of more; a return of tho country to a gold basis without dislocation of.business, nnd some increase  in immigration, all of which mast  bo holpful to our woll-boitog.*'  The General Manager, Mr. A. E.  Phipjif*. snttl, In part! ���������  "The year Juat closed linn prdh-  ably been the best for the banh  uinco 1 became Genoral Manager in  1021. Tha total aasotn, the deposits, and the. profits all aliow a  substantial Increase.  *  Deposits KxcihhI ^lOO,<M>0,000.  "Tho total aiiaotti tut $_t3J,832,-  309.05 are the largest over shown  by the Bank, as also are the deposits; In fact, it is the first time  that the deposits of the Bank have  ever exceeded one hundred millions  of dollars.  "The profits have been distributed in the usual manner, the only  change being an additional $10,000  set aside to provide for additional  income tax. Tbey have been computed,' of course, after making full  provision for all bad and doubtful  debts and contingencies, but before  setting; aside contributions to the  Pension & Guaranty Fund, and of  $160,000 for the Dominion Government taxation. These taxes are ia  addition to Provincial Government  taxes and.licenses amounting in  round figures to $65,000, which  have been paid and deducted at the  Head Office and Branches before  making 'up their profits. Altogether the taxes paid and reserved  (leaving out wof the question real  property and similar taxes),  amounting to $226,000, or over 3  per cent, of the capital of the Bank..  I doubt very much if any other class  of business is so burdened with direct taxation. . y"  Iniareaae*! "Profits.  "It is satisfactory to note, therefore,-, that through Increased business and other causes we were able  to show net earnings of $1,265,-  776.31, whieh are $103,627.58  greater than a year ago, and enable  us to carry forward $1,252,148.23,  or $153,276.21 more than last year.  "The circulation at $10,792,633  i������>-practically the same as a year  ago. We feel that it would have  been greater had it not been that  the marketing of the Western crops  has been retarded by unseasonable  weather. The deposits, $100,787,-  014.91, show a growth of over $6.- '  000,000, and a very gratifying feature is that while there has been a  slight shrinkage in the deposits not  bearing Interest or current accounts of $1,000,000, there has  been an increase in round figures of  $6,000,000 in interest-bearing deposits, which include the Saving  Bank accounts of the Bank.    ,  Currency on Gold Basis  . "Last year' I' stated that there  was reason to hope that 'bankers'  difficulties would be substantially  less than they had been for the past  few years, and this ln our own case  provedMo be true. Other than the  re-establishment of the currency of  the country on a gold basis; which  was brought about almost without  comment, the year has been one of  calmness, with comparatively  steady growth/ there having been  no outstanding Incidents or disturbances in banking or commetrclal  circles in Canada.  Industrial Activity.  "In our own Province of Ontario  I think the manufacturers have had  a better time. The automobile industry, tho textile Industry, flour  millers, manufacturers of electric  appliances and of boots and shoes  and leathers, have all enjoyed a  moderate degree of prosperity.  Western Business Improved.  "f visited the four Western Provinces in September and early October. I can assure you that Western agriculture and Western business wae on a vory much bettor  footing than I have soon It for a  long tlmo, and the development of  the port of Vancouver and tho  coast of British Columbia might  almost bo claused ao amazing.

Watch Your Daughter!  The average person readily, gives, an  intellectual   assent   to   the   statement,  that, agriculture is our basic industry  and the "backbone, ol* tho nation," but  usually without any adequate conception  of the fundamental facts   of Hie  case.    lt.is a'nie**e figure .of,���������speech. It  is,  therefore,  well, to  consider briefly  towhat .extent, agriculture   has   been  responsible for Canada's material pro:  gress.    Forty-One par cent of otusnei  production, in.the last census year was  agricultural; thirly-three per cent wks  manufacturing; and our forests, mines,  fisheries, construction, etc., account for  the remaining    twenty-six    per    cent.  The eight, billions of total agricultural  capital  in .Canada ..represents   36   per  cent of her total available wealth."*".'r-  ban   real   Estate   accounts   for   26   per  eeht, our railway plants, 10 per cent,  forests,   5%   per  cent,  mines,   2t4 .per  cent, .and   nianufacturhig   equipment,  2% percent -  It will thus"'he" "clear that Canada's  agriculture looms up as the largest  single factor in"lier economic life,  and the farmers' all the largest group  of domestic cpafsunief.-?, consequently  exercising.a commanding influence in  the general business conditions of the  country. "One-third of all revenue  freight carried by our railways originated on the farm and another .third at  least, was represented in carrying  J commbdaiiies of all kinds bach to the  farm and the agricultural raw material to and fro. The Canadian, farm not  alone*-feeds the nation, but exports on  such a tit-ale that credits are availblc.  to balaiice bui* interhational^obligations  and create a favorable* trade balance.  Besides the-*" .millions of farm ��������� workers -directly engaged in producing,  there-are olher .millions earning their  living by performing work connected  with supplying the implenRjiits, tools,  shoes, clothing etc., for-Mlie farmer,  with -the manufacture of raw material  originating on the farm and. the distribution .and., transportation of such  commodities. Who is bold enough to  attempt. Correctly 1o estimate the  economic 'importance ol* agriculture in  a country "like Canada ? It is perhaps |  we'll' within the mark to assert that]  at least .SO per cent of Canada's total';  population,- in every walk of life, cle- j  pend absolutely on her agriculture, 03-1  rectly  or  indirectly. ;  These  are     imposing    figures     and j  -Known  Home yBuilder  Quic^ To*Health  Victim   ofNervous   Indigestion,   Loss   of   Sleep  and  intolerable Pain, Father of 8 Children, Pinds Loligr-  Soiight Relief.

They are not uncommon in  Paris where a Prince of India may at  any time transform a miniature palace  in the Bois into, an exotic fairy land.  tor a wild, barbaric fete. They were  brilliant punctuations in the Bohemian  calendar of old Vienna, and in "London, occasionally, a rampant beauty,  perhaps a mannequin newly married  to a duke, or a young duchess divorced  from one, will celebrate by turning  one night into enough extravagance to  keep May fair gossiping for a month.  in America they are rarely accomplished. The; demimondaine of Paris  and the diplomat from London are  not accustomed to ignoring the barrler  between them when occasion arises. It  is an extraordinary hostess, in America, who can successfully bring together all grades of society, not rich and  pdbr, so much, as tha good and the  not so-good. ^  Yvonne Coutant -was one of these.  She had no scruples when she opened  her house, as to who came into it. She  demanded "only beauty, external grace,  and a willingness to be an appropriate  picture for the.-,shining, golden .frameI  she provided.      7  "One simply cannot afford, not tc*- be  in on one. of Yvonne's affairs," Mrs.  Ih-ownley-Smith, of the Polo crowd,  repeatedly said. "One's husband is  sure to be there, and so is his favorrlte  of the moment.' I always.go in order  to discover who Tom's loving now. It's  the only way I nave of checking up  on the fluctuations of his taste.7 . ""  "Yvonne's own latest former husband. Alfred Coutant;" the novelist,  never missed her entertainments.

And so it W'as  that Joanna stood, arms outstretched  that  she  might realize  tlie  line   and  symmetry of them, before the long mir-  ror=inher dressing room, upstairs. The  slim.-body--.of her's was vibrant with  memories  of  the, day  and eagerness  for the night.   In her eyes were all-the  ecstacies.     Strewn ^around   her -were  the things from the shops���������more gorgeous   ^things    from    more    gorgeous  shops than she, alone, ever could have  discovered.   It was from them she had  made her choice���������or Yvonne hadmade  it for her���������-and she stood, before the  glass,  a  soft,   mellow vision  of  lace  and chiffons fashioned by deft fingers  and cunning brains to emphasize that  beauty of girlhood that only a sculptor  could display more alluringly or frank-  .ly.    On tha dressing table before her  wejre , spread    the    souvenirs    of   "an  hoiu  with Yvonne in the great jewelry'store; wristlets of diamonds, rubles  and  sapphires;   necklets  of platinum  chains, .as   thin  as  the   sheernessyoi'  lingerie,  with ' shining gems  in  their  delicate pendants.  From all of these Yvonne ha da chosen a single ornament, a i-ope of shimmering pearls that wound ohce around  the slender, pertly poised neck.  "Miss Twenty-seven of the Silks"  had completed her transition and  awaited her summons into the magic  world below���������the magic world where  money bought a smile or a kiss bought  pearls like hers.  While Joanna stood before her mirror,, Andrew Eggleston sat at tho long  curved, tabic in the sombre-toned library of his houso���������which was not of  the  Avenue, but still  on it, stubborn  ghost of tho days when  tho Avenue  was jealous of    its    exclusive    rank.  Joanna's eyes caressed the loveliness  her mirror roflocted: n loveliness that  eultouilzod,  as Jn_ alabaster  dust,  all  the pretenses of her kind.    Her toes  tjiigled  with   lhe  promise  of  adven-  turoH.    Dim pi em danced their provocation   nhouL her  mouth.

Thvre w������s������ no dancing lu her eyes, hue  a.-* wistfulness  that  seemed   to   reach  out to the man who gazed, like a quavering beam  of mellow radiance.  The  lips were blood red, - and    full,    and  shaped, for a kiss, but chey. were not  scarlet,   nor  voluptuous.    They  were  as if there   was no such a thing as. a  lip stick.    The hah- was brown, shimmering, ^ as  Joanna's, but it was  not  bobbed-:���������but piled in glorious opulence.  The banker, who would have been  young when this girl in the gold frame  was   young,   passed   his   hand   across  his brow, to break a spell with which  the girl in. the painting encompassed  him.    Then his attention fell to hits  of  paper  spread before him like  the  jewels on    Joanna's    dressing    table.  One by  one' he  picked them up and  read them���������read the cancelled checks  -which signified the purchases Joanna  had made that day, checks that had  been hurriedly cashed    so    the    girl  might take her purchases  away with  her.    They totalled thousands, many  thousands, &t the .jewelry store alone  Joanna Irad spent more than a tenth  of lier million dollars. It was all totalled in the cancelled checks.  "The play begins! It Is to be a comedy, afterall*'"  It was said quietly, evenly, * but  there was just a nuance in the tone  that might- have been repressed, exultation. The speaker stood behind  the banker, a figure in faultless evening clothes, silk hatted, white gloved.  About his lips played tlie wraith of a  smile���������a cynical smile. In his eyes  there was amusement. Just at that moment an^anoieht butler appeared at  the library door and spoke: ).'  "Your. car  has   arrived,  Mr/ Brandon/*       ".- " --7   ���������'  ,  Eggleston   started.     "You. will   be  seeing her, tonight, then?" he  asked  calmly.  "Yes. She will be plunged into the  abyss tonight, by her .new friend,  Yvonne Coutant. She will swim like  a sinuous mermaid through the sordid.  senses of half a score of old men  whose lips she'U moisten with pie  sight other, and half a hundred noting  men who will make wagers a.s to  which will be first to break her. The  end is in sight tonight."  Eggleston did. not reply for a moment. He raised his glance again to  the girl -u the painting. Then he said,  heav ily:  "Still*;-I'd like to see her���������here, in,  this room. Arrange, some - way, to  bring her tomorrow."  Brandon bowed * slightly, and wont  otit of the room and to his car which  waited at tho curb. He gave his order  briefly:    '"to. Miss Cbutant's."  Meanwhile'. Joanna, before her mlr-  "Youwill be something of/a sensation, tonight, my dear!" the older woman exclaimed, when Joanna ' had  Xvalked across the room, and had  whirled and stood, still for her inspection. "Joanna was much too happy to  ���������reply. .- 7  Yvonne's .^appearance among her  guests was the signal for dancing to  begin���������also for the breaking down of  all barriers built Jby formalities.
