It was decided to havo n  community aocial on Monday, March  -.8tii. Dancing and a variety entertainment are Hntcd on tho program mo.  Yv -  Canyon Community Hall was packed  to capacity Wednesday evening when  the Canyon Dramatic Club made their  second appearance, this .time in the  rural comedy dra-ba, "Deacon Dubbs,"  which wap presented to the-entire satisfaction of the large audience. For the  presentation the stage had been shifted  about 12 feet further into the auditorium  this giving actors and producer  space f r the evening's activities.  The   dramatiCY interpretation   of  the  character     part,. "Rose  Raleigh,"   the  play's very   lovable  heroine,   by   Miss  Frances Knotty W"as a revelation   to  the  aud ence.   She     .played     upon     their  emotions   to  such  an   extent   that   at  moments  of her * appearance one could  sense'the tense expectant attitude of the  audience.   It is evident that Miss Knott  displays ar dramatic ability���������to most of  us unsuspected^which iff directed along  the right channels ought  to   be  a  big  draw to any further production in which  we may be Tfa'vc&ed to  see her starred.  As the play progresses Miss Knott'B artistry waxed with ber evident popularity.  While the play-bay be described as a  rural   comedy   it" is   hot   without   its  drama ic episodes, some of which were  provided by E.y-Langston who.  cast in  the part of the villain and thought to be  the "deceased  first  husband   of  "Rose  Raleigh."   This|>art was handled without hesitation in a clear cut and forceful  manner to a   dr__jn.at-ic  denouement of  the heroine in the: presence of her lover, ���������  played   by   L    W. Stephens,   who,   as  ��������� Amos," 'cLverljrdemonstrated that the  inside track of love ran true, and whose  courtship of Rose captured the fancy of  the audience,, proyang to the older generation that all the world loves   a  lover.  Many a falteriSgRieart must have, taken  #^^^^^ase4:i^ay-.^ter.T;,se?:ng';^-ri-,  ���������SfcepT_!en:s-^'b;UaTO  of the village school mam;yj-y' -:~���������������������������y-  The ^village cutuprT3,eTrixie,'' played by  Miss Edna Hickeyv'gave us a lifelike  glimpse of how, young neices should not  interfere in the affairs of middle-aged  bachelor uncles.  The sympathy of the audience wa s for  "Emily Dale," played by Mrs. Geo.  Niblow. Alas, it is only too true that  love's course cannot always flow in  pleasant places. Her lover, soon turned  out in his true coat of the dark-visaged  knave of hearts, being already in possess .  ion of a wife. Emily's disappointment  was well played by Mrs. Niblow, and  tears were shed as she broken hearted ly  slipped away from the final scene wherein all forid hearts are forever united  never io be severed, m twain.  Roy Browell, as the deacon, after a  lapse of many years, meets up with a  childhood sweatheart, in the person of  "Philopena Popover," played by Mrs.  T. Hickey. At first the deacon was  mere enamoured of the "water" at  Rose's cottage than of the seasoned  charm of Miss Philoppna, but later on  was to suffer a change of heart, when  not quite overcome by the waters of the  old well Right gallantly did the deacon  pursue his suit, and how bewitchingly,  in her Victorian curls, did Miss Popover  lead h3m to the point. Lots of dialogue  in this, reminiscent of the days at which  the present generation is prone to poke  fun. For much of its humor the play  depended on the parts taken by Mr.  Browell and Mrs. Hickey and their  interpretation of the characters assigned  them was satisfactory throughout.  At times Mrs. Roy Browell, in the  part of 'Yennie Yensen," a Swedish  farm girl, stole the show with her persistent and amorous  advances  to thnt  ...      .   .. (  essential product cf the country, a  rea] [  stupid hired man under the appelatlon f  of "J.   F.  Deuteronomy  Jones,"   portrayed by L. Rowe.   The crass blindness of this character to her advances in  no    way    daunted   Yennie  from  the  Eurpbse of bidding in on the hired man's  and in marriage.  Harry VanAckeran, as# the auctioneer  from the city, eystwhile ������ frie__d of Ross,  quickly sized up the situation on arriving at Raleigh farm, and from thence his  sympathies were for the newly-engaged  couple, whose prospective home was so  soon to come under the hammer. What  can even the agent of a trust company  do at an auction, when bidding against  so biased ah auctioneer. The part of  the auctioneer calls for a character of  natural build, a booming voice and an  evident alcoholic countenance, while  Harry is not endowed to a marked extent with these bibulously acquird  qualities, he Is to be congratulated on his  handling of this part, for which he was  considerably miscast.  The scenery and stage effects of the  evening were of a very big order, and  appreciation is especially due Mrs.  Nygaard who artistically and realistically priav-ded some real scenery.  "Deacon Dubbs" was produced under  the direction of J. E. VanAckeran and  the success of the evening is in large  measure due to the studied oversight he  gave the players individually and  collectively ever since rehearsals commenced.  Between the acts and before and duping tbe play musical numbers by Grace  Bond and Ethel VanAckeran, Mrs.  Normab Strong and Miss Holly Bond  brightened up the evening, and mention  is also due Shirley Barnhardt, Elva  Strong and Leona Browell, who had  juvenile parts In the play. The club is  also indebted to Mrs. Lowerison for the  loan of her piano.     .  After meeting some unavoidable expenses, there will be quite a substantial  cash balance, which wilL be utilized for  reeconditioning the community hall  piano.

Try it.  Are L  earnm  sN  ow  It is not in times of prosperity but In adversity that people learn their  most valuable lessons. They may not be accumulating immediate and  material profits, but they do unquestionably profit, reaping the benefits  throughout the years to follow.  And what is true of individuals is equally true of nations and of the  world. When things are moving along quite satisfactorily for tbe time being, normal or even abnormal develo^astnta taking place and progress  recorded, when people are content and satisfied, individuals and nations  learn very little of the real meaning and vital things of human existence.  It is not in times of prosperity that great reforms are achieved and marked  advances made in human and social relat_ons__ips; rather it is when we  consider "all is well" that we slip back and lose our grip on real fundamentals.  In the months and years immediately preceding the great stock market  crash in the latter part of 1929. few people were worrying about anything,  unless it was low to make still more money than was accumulating to  their credit. They were not a.t all concerned about existing social conditions and giving no thought, or very liit3e, to vital principles underlying all  economic problems, including the possibility of future unemployment,  mounting personal and national debts, heavier taxation, all combining to  possibly result in loss of businesses and homes.  We find governmental bodies and special parliamentary committees  grappling with the many and intricate problems involved in the relationships existing between debtors on the one hand and creditors on the other.  Ckeaps Means Of Travel  Bicycle. Is Very Popular In England!  and Europe  The bicycle is returning to favor.  Cycle manufacturers are finding the  demand foil' bicycles higher than it  has been for the last seven or  eight years.' Certain places have  alway3 been known as Bicycle Towns.  Bedford is the most famous example  in England, and has the highest.proportion of bicycles to its population.  This is probably due to the flatness of  the surrounding country. Abroad, the  bicycle is very popular. Copenhagen,  for instance, moves almost entirely on  the bicycle,'so does the Hague. In  Berlin-the streets are crowded with  bicycles at the hours when people are  going or coming from work. Factories oh the outskirts of the city have  accomnipdation for thousands of bicycles, as most o fthe workers find  this the cheaptest way of travelling.

Efforts are being directed to  finding a way out of the morass in which, people and nations are sinking,  and to provide checks to a recurrence of such a condition when once again  the world becomes thoughtless through prosperity.  A Royal Commission is studying the transportation problem. A few  years ago the railways of Canada were doing an enormous business, rapidly  expanding their systems, the privately-owned road paying large dividends  with their stock quoted at a premium, and the government-owned road  steadily, even rapidly, through re-organization and efficient management,  increasing its profits on operat:on to such an extent as to give promise that  the day was at hand when it would no longer be a drag on the Federal  Treasury. But bow both systems are in deep financial trouble, and a solution of ttieir difHculties is sought. In adversity they, and the country, are  /earning lessons they scorned to study when prosperous only a few short  years ago.  Had a sound system of unemployment insurance been established during  the years of our prosperity, thousands of people and the country itself  would have been saved much of the grief of the past two years. But when  times were prosperous, everybody employed at good wages, business boom-  ance then could not have mustered a corporal's guard. It would have been  ing, nobody was in a mood to even consider the possibility of future unemployment on a gigantic scale. Support for a scheme of unemployment insurance then could not have mustered a corporal's guard. It would have been  laughed to scorn. But now, in adversity, we are learning the lesson that  Joseph of old taught the ancient Egyptians,���������in years of plenty prepare for  years of famine.  For a goodly number of years past, the need for a thorough over-hauling of Canada's constitution, the B.N.A. Act, has been manifest. A splendid  document Ln 1S67, its designers could not foresee an ,ag& in which radio and  the airplane would wipe cut provincial boundaries in the twinkling of an  eye, nor could they vision this electrical age, this mechanical age with its  inyrlads of inventions and mass production on farms as well as in factories.  A nation itself cannot control radio, let alone a province. The ether waves  recognize no arbitrary boundary lines. If Canada and the United States  each attempted a radio policy Independent and regardless of the other, only  chaos would result. Yet some provinces desire to control both the radio and  airplanes within their smaller bounds.  Recently the Privy Council declared the Dominion Insurance Act unconstitutional, and that control of insurance rested with the provinces, under  the terms of the B.N.A. Act. Yet insurance Is not even national, but international in its organization. There is too much conflict between the provinces and the Federal authority.

Albert Ehrensvard, the  Swedish Minister in Paris. Count  Ehrensvard predicts that Sweden may  advance to~*the front rank of gold- i  producing coiintries. Since 2918 en- {  gineers and geologists have been!  working secretly in the . primitive  Skelleftea district on the Baltic Sea,  the Minister declared, and have pro=  gressed to a point where more than  forty shafts are being developed. The  mines produce silver, zinc, and  arsenic in sufficient quantities to pay  entirely for the working, of the Boli-  den under-water mine, discovered  only in 1924, and now the third most  important gold mine in the world.  Given For Apparatus Which Electroplates Nickel On Diamonds  Edison is dead, but the United  States Government is still awarding him patents for bis inventions.  The Patent Office has just issued a  patent to Thomas A. Edison for an  apparatus which electroplates nickel  on diamonds to be used in cutting  and grading tools. The diamond is  the hardest known substance and it is  therefore very efficient in grinding  metals such as steel. It is difficult  to mount these diamonds in suitable  tools. Edison's invention overcomes j  this difficulty by providing a machine  which electroplates nickel on the dia- !  monds, after which they can be held  rigidly in grinding tools. Edison  also proposed to mount diamonds in  a similar manner .for phonograph  needles. The signature of Edison in  his well-known, firm and bold handwriting appears on the drawing of  the patent.

Recommendations of the cornmia-  sioii, he said, should be placed before the coming Imperial Economic  Conference at Ottawa.: Mr. Griffiths  was speaking in the debate on a  resolution to direct the agricultural  committee to devise a debt adjustment scheme which would keep farm-  ess on the land.  IPlrst requisite to success, he declared, was an entire absence of, politics. Hs suggested Arthur Meighen,  former prime minister of Canada,  Charles Dunning, former minister of  finance, together with a representative of a mortgage company, a person familiar with western agriculture,  and an ordinary dirt farmer as members of the proposed commission.....  Describing: western conditions as  serious, Mr.?Griffiths urged the government to sound out the governments of .Saskatchewan and. Alberta  on the scheme as soon as possible. If  tlie commission's recommendations  were practicable, he predicted business .would improve. Confidence would  be restored.  . One of the important duties of the  commission would be to find a way to  prevent wholesale foreclosure. As  the situation stood any improvement  it-farm prices would bring a rush of  creditors and foreclosures, and evictions on a large scale were threatened.

Speakers thought cutting the grant  out altogether was too drastic a  measure to take in a single year. The  large exhibitions and agricultural  shows had been considered the best  vehicles for improvement in livestock  but without the grants they were  likely to relegate agriculture and  stock to the background and .the  whole industry would suffer.

Ottawa, Ont.���������The grading of Garnet wheat will be the subject of consideration by the Commons Committee  on Agriculture.  In the House H. H. Stevens, Minister of Trade and Commerces introduced a motion to refer a resolution  asking for a separate grading of this  type of wheat to th^ committee.  Last fall -the grain standards committee at Winnipeg passed a resolution recommending that after July 31  Garnet wheat should not be graded in  the first four grades of red spring  wheat and further recommended that  the following grades be established:  Namely, No. 1 C.W. Garnet, No. 2  C.W: Garnet and -No. 3 CW. Garnet.  It was this resolution that will be referred to the committee.  At present Garnet wheat enters  the same grades as Marquis and other  red varieties.  Mr. Stevens told the House he was  conviced that to place Garnet wheat  in separate grades would necessitate  a change in the Canada Grain Act. He  was, therefore, turning the resolution  over to . the agricultural committee  without comment either for or  against such a change.  Hon. E. A.

Limi i tD  Arrow  1906 ��������� 1932  ^reek  In 1906 the valley now known  as Arrow Creek belonged to the  Canadian Pacific Railway. It  was a virgin iorest. wiie would  travel a long way to find a  prettier belt of timber. It was  mostly white pine; not large but  thick, -with no underbrush. It  might well be described as an  indian heaven, " the happy hunting ground." In 1907, Arrow-  smith and Jefferson purchased  practically all of this vaiiey from  the C.P.R., and very soon others  followed, and purchased the remainder of the good land in the  valley. It would appear the  nature of these purchases was  speculation. Some land changed  hands to other speculators.  them. His intentions were to improve his health as well as land.  He managed to plant ten acres of  orchard and fenced it and then  he was obliged to move away.  Airowsmith brothers had other  interests and they gave only a  little of their time each year to  Arrow Creek farming. With'Mr,  Eby gone, and the speculators  holding the land up as high as [ Erickson school  $-00 an acre, progre s practically  stood  still.  Now let us skip to   1932   and  1 ok back a few years and note  the development, and realize why  it has been so long on  the   way.  In summing up  I  would say  the  cause of slow development  was  speculators, prejudice and lack of  roads.    The 'only road  was that  ; which is now known as the Arrow  Creek road, built by Arrowsmith,  j Jefferson, Lamont,   Cuming   and  j company     in   1910.    This   rosd  commences at the main highway,  'known t enas the  C.P.R.   Goat  : road,   and  followed  the  foot  of  \ Goat mountain to the flat  below  j Rolph     mountain,     where    Air.  I Cardinal   now   lives.    One   may  | have been able to get over it with  | a model T Ford, but I  doubt  it.  j The gover ment has spent about  i $50 on it since 1910.  Vegetables also of excellent quality and yield per acre.  There are three small orchards  there and several others intend  planting in the spring. Orchard  fruits should do well as there is a  good blanket of snow to proteet  the roots through the winter.  Before closing the article I  would like to give credit to the  pioneers who have proven what  the Arrow Creek district can do  in an agricultural way, and I  understand the difficulties under  which they have labored, one  difficulty being lack of school.  An effort was made last fall to  enlist Erickson's support in a  small wav_ so that Arm**. Ci*������ek  children could have the benefit of  for about eight  months, until they could get a  school of their own, which they  are confident will mature this  summer. Sorry to say they failed in their effort to secure this  assistance.  Last year saw six new farmers  take up land in the district bringing the number of landowners  over the 20 mark. Among the  newcomers is a Mr. Wiltse, who  has just started a fox farm,  located at a point near the mouth  of Arrow Creek, and has about  100 foxes. It is his opinion that  the fox pelts wiii be of the same  high quality as the other products  of Arrow Creek.

U.    1034  Dear Mr. Bryant:���������"Your address  in Estevan last week, and the  press reports of the work of the  Saskatchewan Commission on  Forestation, have impressed us  with the far reaching' possibilities  for public good of the tree planting program you have inaugurated. -As commercial nurserymen,  we are not particularly enthusiastic over that part of your program that contemplates the establishment of another Government free tree planting agency.  We heartily approve, however, of  the educational and experimental  features of your program. We  fully reealize the urgent need  for general co-operation in combating drought and soil drifting  and wish to aid in the establishment of the drought demonstration area contemplated, by your  Commission.  To this end, our Directors have  decided to oifer the Province of  Saskatchewan one Siundred thousand (100,000) heavy, three year-  year-toid Caragana, free of  charge. We make this offer because we understand that your  Budget does not permit the purchase of the required stock and  we are certain that delay until  Government stock is large  enough to plant, will greatly lessen the effectiveness of your reforestation program. The time  to stare your demonstration program is before the public has forgotten the bitter lessons of last  Summer's drought. This offer is  made with the understanding  that the Caragana is to be used  only in the main demonstration  area near Regina, and that the  plantings be made the coming  Spring. The       demonstration  plantings will provide valuable  information for the farmers of Aiberta and Manitoba, as well as  those residing in Saskatchewan.  Wishing you  every success in  your efforts to secure the full co- .  operation of the public in combating drought, we are,  Yours very truly,  Prairie Nurseries, Limited,  T. A. Torgeson,  Managing Director.  Commenting on the above letter  Mr. Bryant stated that he desired on  behalf of the Government, and on behalf of the Drought Commission to  publicly acknowledge the splendid  gift of the Prairie Nurseries, Limited.  The gift was extremely timely and  was very generous. He hoped that  it would be thrice blessed; that it  would bless the farmers in the experimental area who would have the  benefit of the experiment; that it  would bless the other farmers of the  Province who would share eventually  in the benefit from the e_-periment,  and that it would bless the Nurseries  Limited, themselves, in the years that  are  to come.  Mr. Bryant stated that the Government had already acquired 50,000  caragana for the Institutional Farm  surrounding the Gaol. The 100,000  caragana received from the Prairie  Nurseries and the 50,000 which were  available from the Forestry Station  this year for the demonstration, plot,  would give 200,000 trees, and enable  them to plant nearly forty miles of  caragana hedge. This would be arranged in an area of one-half township starting at Winnipeg Street and  No. 1 Highway, including an area one  mile south of the main highway and  two miles north of tlie main highway to a point six miles east of Winnipeg Street.
