Organized in 1929, the institute con  tinues its policy of aggressive trade  expansion. That determ nation and not  'currency' is the driving force behind this  organization was much in evidence at  the third annual meeting on Thursday,  which was one of the most interesting  hald in a long time. v  Accounts submitted showed the flour  and feed business in excess of 20 cars,  with general merchandise increased  threefold over 2930. The egg marketing  service, also gained in importance, handling the bulk of the valley product , and  now requiring the full time attention of  one man. Due credit was given the  manager, Chas. Murrell, for these satis*  factory results.    ���������  Reporting for the directors, the retiring president, D. Bradley, humorously  referred to the day the first eggs were  hauled into the institute���������just to see how  things would work out. He little  suspected that within a short period the  minimum intake during the winter  would exceed 100 cases per month. The  careful handling and grading had improved the quality of Creston eggs with  the reepect that local poultrymen have  now an established market with the  wholesale and retail trade. A "little cooperation has gone a long way.

The new board was also  instructed to organize a wholesale de*  partment  for the  marketing of  Valley  products.  The Board of Trade resolution in regard to the unsatisfactory conditions  existing with respect to the hydroelectric development at the canyon was  very carefully, considered. Responding  to a call from the chair, Chas. .Moore r  answered several questions of a technical  nature. The conclusion reached by the  meeting was to the effect that the  amount of power available was probably-  not large enough to be of much interest  to outside capital, but as a source of  power for domestic purposes the proposition was of great importance to. the  future of- the district: It was thought  that, possibly, $25,000 would be required to develop the project, and that  the power produced would be sufficient  to supply the needs of the territory iying  between Sirdar, and Porthill.

A #_?_*������_���������__  32������m4Smmmm  a-ww-iar ��������� .���������_*a,a_��������������� ������mm  There was a very large turnont of  valley orchardists at the meeting in the  United Church hall on Saturday afternoon, which was called for the purpose  of discussing the advisability of Creston  Co Operative Fruit Exchange resuming  active operations. The Exchange was  out of businessin 1081, having leased its  Creston warehouse to Scott Fruit Company. Limited, ���������''...  jae. Compton, the Exchange president,  was in the chair, and* in opehing the,  meeting very briefly explained the  reason the growers had been called together. He strongly believed in the cooperative marketing system, and with a  big crop in sight for 1982 thought it nil  the more imperative that the growers  should stand together.  W. Vance, who is in charge of the Associated Growers Kootenay central at  Nelson, and who held n similar position  at Creaton In 19S0, give n practical and  interacting talk on the 1931 marketing.  and the 1932 outlook. He said the export market had been the best for the  grower even in a bad year like IJMJl, and  waa strongly of tho opinion that wltn the  anticipated BritEah preference of 4ft cents  a box nnd n reduced freight rate, overseas selling in 1932 would bo oven moro  advantageous. Mr. Vatttae gave figures  to show apples still In storage at prairie  centres ana .Oknnagnn points, the most  alarming cf which wan the atock ot 150  curloads of Mcintosh Reds still unsold,  which are deteriorating rapidly at this  late date. ,  John Hall and othera came out sttrongly  in ifavor of tha ISxcbnngo getting buck  into tho murtcotij-B UubIiiosb, and a resolution to that effect wan carried unnni-  taounly.

Alices  Siding school,  left on   Wednesday  for  Rossland for a family reunion.   In his  absence Miss Annaretta   McDonald of  CrestOn is in charge.

Last week's surprise party was at the  home of Mrs. Marshall on Friday night  with a large attendance. The music was  by Ron. Smith, violin; Tom Marshall,  accordeon; and Bob Marshall, drums.  The midnight lunch was of a very high  Order.  Robins have made their appearance in  this section and it would look as if they  were here to stay, with spring officially  due to start on Monday next.

Those who have a liking for amateur  dramatic performances should be at  Canyon <ta Wednesday night, 23rd, for  the presentation of "Deacon Dubbs" by  Canyon Dramatic Club,, under the  direction of J. E. VanAckeran.  The play is described as a rural  comedy drama, with just enough sentiment of the popular variety to make the  production worth while, andjj with the  different parts taken by people who have  shown remarkable ability in their respective roles "Deacon Dubbs" is sure to  make a decided hit.  Canyon dramatic club has recently  been reorganized and for Wednesday  night's offeeing will present some of the  talent that showed to such good advantage in "Poor Married Man," which  the club put on at the Grand three years  ago. Ih addition to these the club was  fortunate enough to engage a Canyon,  girl to perform the part of the leading  aSuy, ss ������vG._ ss>wC cosisuisns o* ������__.srs������.,  for this new performance. We are confident that with this ensemble this play  is going to be most laughable and all are  assured an enjoyable evening.  Costumes, characters, In feiefe. every-  thing, were taken into consideration, and  wi tt tha aid of all the members of the  club &nd a lady artist of Canyon, the  scenery    for   the   piay    will be  very  I attractive.   Anyone neglecting to attend  this performance will be disappointed.

Hickey), provide an  endless supply of high class humor.  Amos Coleman <L. W. Stephens) and  Rose Raleigh (Miss Frances Knott).hero  and heroine of the play are splendidly  cast, and Rawdon ^ Cowley {Ernest  Langston), the villain, is well placed.  The other characters who show up  equally promising are Major McNutt  )Harry VanAckeran), auctioneer and J.P.  Deuteronomy Jones <L. Rowe), a  country product. Emily Dale (Mrs.  Niblow), the richest girl in town. Trixie  Coleman (Mips E. Hickey), full of mischief. Yennie Yenaen (Mrs. Roy  Browell), Swedish hired girl.

They are> desirous of immigrating  to Canada ahd engaging1 in farming,  their brother, Dr. Alex. C. Rah, of  Dayton, Ohio, stated in a letter received by Prince Albert Board of  Trade.  Dr. Rab asks the Board of Trade  for agricultural.-possibilities in this  district, and ideas about the amount  of undeveloped farm land, the condition of soil as to productivity of  crops and pasturage, the climate  with reference to animals and crops,  as well as general facts.  He intends to help his brothers  financially as much, as he is able, and  wants to obtain a site of about two  or three thousand acres, not very far  from a city. Dr. Rab thinks-this land  ought to bring returns to those developing it in about fifteen or sixteen  years.  Explanations and Comments  The Trial Of Jesus, verses 1-16.���������  "We   see   the  various   actors   in   the  drama���������Caiaphas, -Henod,  Pilate���������all  falling into place, as at some my^tJo  signal;    each    doing    somthiug    that  had to be done, each doing something  dictated by the grossness of his nature, and thus something for which  he   is   answerable;    but   also   doing  something  that was  an unconscious  fulfillment of a program;  and Jesus  Himself passing   through   all    these  scenes with   the    sublime   steadfastness of one who knows that thus it  must  be. .. This   is   the   joy   of   the  cross.    Jesus has not lost His way.  He moves steadily to His goal. He is  no victim of accident���������at every step  something was done that the will of  God made necessary and inevitable."  ���������W. J. Dawson.  On. the Way To Calvary and Crucifixion, verses 17-19.���������Roman soldiers  threw   a   red   cloak   around   Jesus,  placed  a crown  of thorns upon His  head    in    imitation    of    the    laurel  wreath worn by Roman emperors on  festive occasions, and. put a reed in  Kis hand as a mock sceptre.      Titers i  they   spat   upon   Him,   struck   Him,  and  jeered  Him.     When wearied of  this sport they led Him. away to be  crucified.      The    procession     started  with a herald at the head bearing a  hoard   on   which   was   written   the  Prisoner's   "crime"���������Jesus  of  Nazareth, the King of the Jews.      After  Him came a centurion with four soldiers,   carrying   nails   and   hammers.  Then came Jesus bearing His cross,  the  two thieves  with  their crosses,  all closely guarded by Roman soldiers,  and followed by a motley crowd of  men and women,  enemies and sympathizers with Jesus, priests and disciples.  Through the city gate they went.  Soon Jesus' strength failed; He was  unable to stagger along under His  cross. . The soldiers themselves would  not carry it, and meeting Simon of  Cyrene, they compelled him to carry  it on to the hill called Golgotha, or  Calvary.

She was laughing, and Jean  was conscious of a sudden uprush of  -admiration for the young gay courage which could laugh even while it  -could not look forward.    "After all,  there    are    compensations    in     life.  You're one of them, my Jean, as I've  told you before! Now let's talk about  something else."  Jean responded gladly enough, and  presently Sir Adrian was temporarily  forgotten in the little intimate half-  -hour of woman-talk which followed.  CHAPTER XV.

There was a  sharpness in his tones, as though the  prospect did not please.  Jean smiled at him engagingly.  "Of course you wiil," she replied.

Tormarin rose, pushing back his  chair with unnecessary violence.  "I don't think I see Judith Craig  extending her friendship to Glyn  Peterson's daughter," he commented  cynically.  An instant later the door hanged  behind him. and Lady Anne and Jean  looked across at each other smiling,  as women will when one of their mankind proceeds to behave exactly like  a cross little boy.  But a quick sigh chased the smile  from Lady Anne's lips.  "Poor old Blaise!" she murmured,  as though to herself. Then, her grey  eyes meeting Jean's squarely, she said  quietly:  "Jean, you're so much one of us,  now, that I should like you to know  what lies at the back of things. You'd  Jean turned impulsively.  "I don't heed to understand you,"  she said quickly, "I love you."  "Thank you, my <leaE_^ Lady  Anne's voice trembled slightly. "If  I were not sure of that, I shouldn't  tell you what I am going to. But I  want you to understand Blaise���������and  to make allowances for him, if you  can."  Jean pufted forward a stool and settled hersellf at Lady Anne's feet.  "Do you mean about the 'mark of  the beast* ?" she asked, smiling a  little. "Blaise told me to ask you  about it one day."  "Did he? He thinks far too much  about it and what it stands for" ���������  sadly. "It has come to be almost a  symbol in his eyes. You see, he too  has suffered from the family failing���������  the very failing that was responsible  for that white lock of hair."  Lady Anne looked down at her  thoughtfully.  ^ ''Well, there's no need for me to tell  you that the Tormarins have hot tempers !

"Though,  after all, it's largely our own fault  if we are not. We make or mar each  other's happiness; It isn't Fate. . . .  But I've had my share of happiness,  Jean���������-never think that I, haven't.  Afterwards, with Claude, I was utterly happy."  She fell silent"for a space, ceasing  on that quiet note of happiness. Presently, almost loth to disturb the reverie into which she had fallen, Jean  questioned hesitantly:  "And the ���������'mark of the beast,* madonna? You were going to tell me  about it."  "It came as a consequence of the  Tormarin. temper. That's why Blaise  calls it the "mark of the beast."      It  was just before he was born���������when  I _wa3 waiting for the supreme  joy  of holding my first-born in my arms.  Derrick���������Blaise's father���������was an extremely   jealous-natured   man.     He  hated to think  that there had ever  been    anyone    "besides    himself who  cared for me.      And there was one  man, in particular, of. whom he had  always been foolishly jealous and suspicious. I can't imagine why, though"  ���������with a little puzzled laugh.    "You  would think that the mere fact that  I  had  married  *him,'   and   not   the  other man, would have been sufficient  proof that he i_ad no cause for jealousy.     But no! Men are queer creat-  tures, and he    always   resented   my  friendship with " John   Lovett���������which  continued after- my marriage. I had  known Jchh'"fr6mL childhood, and he  Was the truest friend a woman ever  had!" She sighed:   - ''And ~ X    needed  friends in those days! For somehow  brooding over things to himself, my  husband conceived an idea that th_  little son who was coming was not  his own child���������but the child of John  Lovett. I think someone  must have  poisoned his mind.   There was a certain   woman    of   our    acquaintance  whom I always suspected; she hated  me and was very much attached to  Derrick���������she had  wanted  to  marry  him, I believe.     In any case,, he came  home one  evening, from  her house,  like a   madman,   and  ��������� there   was   a  scene .  .  .- . a terrible scene ....  he hurling accusations at me. ....  I won't talk of it, because he'was bitterly _ repentant afterwards. As soon  as the fit of 'rage was past, he realized how utterly groundless his suspicions had been,  and I don't think  he ever ceasedr ito reproach himself.  But that has always been the way!  The     Tormarins     have     invariably  brought   the  .bitterest  self-reproach  upon themselves.   One   way   or   an-,  other, tlie same story of blind, reckless anger, and its consequences, has  repeated itself generation after generation."  "And then ? What happened then ?"  asked Jean in low, shocked tones.  "I was very iii���������so ill thnt they  thought I should not live. But I did  live, and I brought my baby into the  world. Only he was born with that  White lock of hair. And my own hair  had turned perfectly white,"  Jean was silent for a. little. At last  sho said Boftly:  *Tm so glad, madonna, that you  wore happy afterwards. "Your 'house  of dreams* came true in the end!"  "Yob."���������Liuly Anne's* -grey eyea  were vory bright and luminous. "My  house of dreamB came true."  After a whllo, she-went on quietly:  "But my poor Blaise's house of  dreams fell in ruins.

The words leapt from Jean's lips  before she could check them. Ih the  account of Tormarin's disastrous love  affair which had been forced upon her  hearing in London, there had been no  mention of the word marriage, and  she had alwayaa imagined that the woman, Ihia Nusta Freyne, 3iad simply  jilted him in favour of another man.

He  leaves to others the matter of paying for the roads, the sidewalks the  water service, the lights, the fire protection, and various other services  that must be maintained in any town.  He does not assist in the maintenance of local schools, community organization,, sports, relief or anything  else essentially local. So far as the  local community is concerned, he is  simply a parasite.  From 3500 To Fortune  ^*������-S one ������uestios_.������ above all others In importance;, that is engaging the  attention of the people of Western Canada, and of the farming class in particular, is as to how they are going to pay their accumulated burden of  debt. As a result of drouth conditions extending over two and three years  with partial or complete crop failures, and with prevailing world prices for  such crops, live stock, dairy and poultry products as they did produce below  the actual cost of production, tens of thousands of farmers have heen  forced to use all the reserves they may have had, and have gone deeply into  debt.  . They find themselves in the position, where, having purchased land and  equipment during the war years, and in the post-war period when high  prices prevailed, and when wheat sold around $1.50 to $2.00 a bushel, they  are now being required to pay these inflated obligations with wheat at 50  cents a bushel, and in thousands of instances with no wheat at all to sell.  Instead, therefore, of being able to gradually get out of debt, they find themselves getting deeper and deeper into debt, with little or no prospect of ever  being able in their lifetime to get free of it.  Consequently, the relationship of themselves to their various creditors,  the appalling interest payments confronting: them, the practical impossibility  of meeting their obligations, and the alternative possibility of losing their  homes, constitutes a veritable nightmare of worry. They feel themselves  confronted with the probability that, in the event of harvesting a good, or  even fair crop��������� this fall, their creditors will swoop down on them and gobble  everything up, thus leaving them in their present predicament of having  nothing wherewith to maintain their families in decency and comfort and  "carry on/'  So, inevitably and naturally, everybody is seeking for a solution, and  suggestions without number are being advanced. Many, of course, are  Utterly impracticable; others are economically unsound and would ultimately  result in intensifying the difficulty rather than solving it; others, again, offer  some hope.  It will be recalled that, following the war, Germany adopted policies  which resulted in converting hundreds of millions of marks issued during  the war to its own people into so many worthless pieces of paper. France  deliberately depreciated its own currency, the franc, to such a low figure  as to accomplish the same result In   its   present   financial   emergency,  Great Britain went off the gold standard, and its money took a tremendous  drop in value almost over night. Now the United States, also faced with a  financial emergency, has gone in for "inflation" of its currency, or "reflation," as they are now pleased to term it, with a view to thawing out its  huge amounts of frozen credits, and to put a larger supply of currency in  circulation. All these expedients have a temporary effect, tbut the fact remains,���������it is an economic truth,���������that if anything is inflated it must sooner  or later be deflated again. In the end there must be a "writing down" or a  "writing off" of liabilities beyond the ability of the debtor to pay.  Sooner   or  later   some   portion   of the   indebtedness   of   thousands   of  Western farmers must be written off,  and the sooner the better  for all  concerned.    A merchant is forced into bankruptcy, and pays fifty cents on  the dollar.   He is then free to make a new start, albeit his credit will not  be as good as before.     If a mortgage or loan company forecloses on a farm  property and takes it over,' it must ultimately re-sell that farm to some one  else.   It is almost certain that it will have to take a loss, selling the farm  for less than the original liability against it.    Would it not, then, be good  business on the part of such loan or mortgage company to take the same  loss, or even, a somewhat larger one, right now, by consenting to a writing  down the present farmer's liability to a point,where he has a chance to  "carry on" and pay?     The property would thus once again become revenue  producing to the company, although not perhaps to the extent originally  expected.    Nevertheless the company conceivably might otherwise have the  land on its hands for some time, a bill of expense for taxes, etc.      Surely, it  would be better business to keep the present owner on the land in a position  where he can add his mite to the general productivity and prosperity of the  country.  One suggestion that is receiving increasing attention and support is that  existing farm debts should be capitalized and amortized, that is, that payments of equal annual instalments covering both principal and interest  spread over a term of years, 15, 20, 25 or 30 years, should be agreed upon.  Surely, such a plan can be worked out without undue loss to anybody, and  in such a manner as to ensure tenure of their homes to present occupants  and an opportunity to ultimately free them selves of debt.  Unless something of the kind is done, it is almost a certainty that many  Western farms will either be abandoned, or wiil pass through foreclosure  proceedings, from their present owners ancl possibly remain idle In the hands  of loan and mortgage companies, or as tax sale properties held by municipalities, for a goodly number of years to come, thus seriously retarding tho  production and development of the country, and imposing a check upon the  prosperity of all, Individuals, corporations ancl governments alike.

Tells Dyspeptics  What "To Eat  Strict Diets Often Unnecessary  It Is a 'well known fact that some  foods have a strongs tendency to produce  excessive stomach acidity and consequent Indigestion. By omitting from  daily meals those foods that experience proves do not agree and limiting' the diet to certain tasteless unappetizing: foods, stomach troubles may  in many instances be slowly overcome.  Nine times in ten, however, indigestion,  gas. etc, are due to excessive acidity  and the premature soursng of food Irs  the stomach. Keep the stomach clean  and sweet by freeing- it of this extra  acid and then sufferers, can eat the  foods they like best and as much as  they want In reason and have no stomach - trouble at all. Thousands of people do this daily by merely takinpr after  every meal a little Bisurated Magnesia.  which can be had at any Brood drug  store in either powder or tablet form.  Bisurated Magnesia instantly neurtal-  izes stomach acids, stops food fermentation and meais digest aa naturally and  painlessly as in the stomach of a healthy  child. Stomach   .comfort   means   a   lot  and most folks like good things to eat.  Enjoy them .both by making Bisurated  Magnesia your daily after-eating protection.

President Of Biscuit Company Telia  Success Story and What Consistent Advertising Will Do  A romance of modern business that  should be an inspiration to every  small store-keeper was told to newspaper men todays (Friday, Februaty  26th) by/ Mr. C. E. Edmonds, President of Christie, Brown and Company, Limited, who is completing his  flfty-sixth year of service with' the  company.   ���������  Mr. Edmonds; who can recall I personally much of the rise of the Christie, Brown organization, told haw the  giant biscuit compahyl^aststatied in  a small store on Yohge; Street, Toronto, by two men with a whricine-  capital of probably not more :than  $500. Today the business they foiindf  ed is capitalized at millions" of dollars  and is the largest industry of its typls  in Canada. It has two manufacturing plants.in the East, aaotheir���������the  million dollar Winnipeg plant opened!  last week���������in the West and thirteen  distributing branches from Halifax to  Vancouver. ,  The simple history of V* Christie,  Brown and "Company as told by the  active veteran president is this: The  business began in 1849 when two  young men, James Mathers and Alexander Brown formed a partnership in  a small store in Toronto to make biscuits. They had with 'diem as assistant salesman, William Christie, who  was destined to become a partner and  eventually play an important part in  Canada's biscuit making industry.  The biscuits sold from this small  bakery became popular with a limited clientele and the business began  to progress. Four years later  Brown and Mathers retired and the  business was handled by young William Christie, Mr. .grown, however,  re-entered the company in Isei and  the name, Christie, Brown and Company, Limited was adopted.  Confederation of Canada in 1867  found the buusiness firmly established  as one of Canada's coining concerns.  In 1871 and again in 1874 larger,  premises were necessary and it was  symptomatic of the sales energy behind the organization that the first  trans-Canada train had a Christie  representative on board.  From that point the business has  never looked back until today Christie  Biscuits are known round the world.  The original store in Toronto has been  replaced by three factories, one occupying nearly a whole down town  block in Toronto, the second Toronto  factory occupying many thousands of  square feet of floor space and the  third, the new Winnipeg plant, is  acknowledged the finest biscuit factory on the continent.  The original plant turned out a  very smalt variety of biscuits. Today  over 500 lines are marketed.  And here, according to Mr. Edmonds, is the real key to success in  the Christie, Brown organization. It  has consistently maintained a high  standard of quality in its products  and has advertised steadily in good  times and bad, using newspapers  from coast to coast, year in and year  out.

France Must Import Wheal  Placing Of ���������& Fresh JDuty On Canadian  Grain' Is Unlikely  Paris, France.���������Reports that the  French .Government will place a fresh  duty on Canadian wheat. on the expiration of the Franco-Canadian  trade treaty next June have no sub-  stantiatioii. It was learned the government bas' not reached any decision,  and such, action is described as very  improbable.  It is pointed out France is bound  to import wheat, as her own p reduction is short, and duties would  merely increase the cost of bread to  the consumer without benefiting- the  domestic wheat producer. If any  such action were taken it would  have to be done under the so-called  "padlock act" wh'ch authorizes the  government to increase duties on  certain products,, mostly foodstuffs,  Including wheat, by decree without  previous notice.  The ministry of agriculture put into force drastic'restrictions on the  importation of fresh fruits and live  plants, which affect Canada among  other countries. This however is a  routine step to guard against the Introduction of the parasite known as  the *<San Jose louse/' which is of  Califomian origin."

Dr. Grisdale suffered! a breakdown in health about a week, ago and  as a result asked for his superannuation, which has been granted. He had  been Deputy Minister since 1919.  In making thc announcement the  minister expressed regret that one  Who had been so long In the iaervice  should find it necessary to ask for  his superannuation on account of Illness, which, no doubt, had been due  to his arduous duties in tlie department.

Aiberta Income Tax  Said To Be Least Drastic" Of Any Of  the Western Province..   -  Edmonton, Alberta.-���������Adoption of a  provincial income tax is inevitable if  Alberta is to balance its budget, declared Premier J. E. Brownlee in the  legislature, In moving second reading  of the new tax tender which the government expects to -raise 51,3741,000.  Alberta -would have the least drastic income tax schedule of any of the  "8Si���������_e 'provinces, the premier declared. He also remarked! that even  with the. new imposts Alberta would  compare favorably with -Manitoba as  the lowest taxed of any of the western provinces.  Criticism of the new taxation bill  was made by F. H. White, Labor, Calgary, who said the tax encroached too  much on -the wages of single and married workers, and should be redrafted.

Crop Failure In Russia  Forty Million Peasants Will Require  Food Belief  Riga, Latvia.���������Official reports from  Moscow confirm that no_ fewer than  40,000,000 Russian peasants, affected  by the failure of the harvest in various parts of Russia last fall, will require food, relief. --������������������������'  The districts affected are the Urals,  West Siberia, the middle and lower  Volga basins, Bashkyrla arid the  northern' parts of the Caucasus. The  combination of the shortage and the  necessity of' supplying these peasants  with grain has radically interfered  with the Soviet Government's spring  sowing program.  In the Ukraine in particular the  backwardness of preparations for the  spring sowing" is causing" Moscow  great anxiety.' According to official  reports/ not more than half of the  grain required for sowing is ready.  The despatch of 1,000,000 tons of  grain to the distressed regions was  decreed by Josef Stalin, Soviet dictator, last month, but the movement  is proceeding slowly because the Soviet rail-ways are unable to cope with  the additional traffic. Another hampering factor is the reluctance of affected, districts to relinquish grain  which, officials contend is stored up.
