Noy At lesst  one would not think so judging by the  way the many local ranchers are hard at  it making improvements of various sorts  on their properties. Huygens & VanAckeran are painting their residence.  Martin Nelson is erecting a new barn.  Messrs. Blair, Rogers and Wickholm  have improved the appearance of their  places witn new front fences. At other  places the roads on the ranches are being  gravelled, and there is much other painting and general repair work to houses  and barns receiving attention.  Someone has said that exhibitions  create and intensify a love o! the  beautiful and contribute to the life of  the community. However true that  may be we can say that in the canning  sections the ladies have not only staged  the largest, exhibits of any of the fairs in  the interior, but given us & vision of the  job. With these fine displays of summer  greens, vegetables and fruit for winter  use,- they succeed in stimulating our  interest in a varied and helpful diet, and  so contribute in no small measure to the  standards of our community life.  This year the Women's Institute is  undertaking an educational exhibit to  illustrate the quantities of various  canned foods that should be provided  for a family of five during the eight  months when gardens are not producing.  .It wiil be a central feature in the canning section and everyone should make  a point of seeing it.

"���������''���������'_  ''Sandy'? Mcintosh has just died at  the age of 81. Por sixty-five years he  was an annual competitor in the field  of sports at the Braemar gathering,  near Balmoral Castle. A son of the  glens, ho was a man of superb physique, standing over six feet Ln height.  Qrey-bearded arid possessed of a massive frame, the veteran Highlander  headed the _ra.rq-ih.ar_.oi_ elan in the  annual parades bearing the standard,  and bis appearance in the arena invariably aroused the admiration of  the-gatherings round the ring.

At 21 he was beginning to  make a name for himself as a heavyweight athlete, winning several of the  principal awards at Braemar.  At 72, fifty-one years later, he took  third place in the caber tossing competition, although his opponents this  time included some of the best-known  heavyweights in Scotland.  A caber is a shapen piece of a tree  about twenty feet long and weighing  enough to be a strenuous lift off the  ground for the average man.

N. Whitehead, of Harvard, representing the British  Academy at the Royal Society of Canada "meeting ia Ottawa. Dr. II. M.  Tory, president of the National Research Council of Canada, and former' ening as it did memories of the 'six-  president of the University of Alberta, supplemented this declaration by' ties of last century when first he took  saying: "No nation has qualified to take its place in the international arena  until it has firmly established itself on national grounds. Canada has men of  capacity to do this.     It is up to us to provide them with the opportunity."  Tbey are quite right, comments the Border Cities Star, If they are  speaking of nationalism, in the sense of a strong but sensible national^pride,  which impels scientists and statesmen to achieve greater things than their  colleagues in other countries, so that mankind as a whole may benefit, and  glory redound to the nation which originates the discoveries or the measure  of progress. And it is to such a type of nationalism that one may readily  believe men like Dr. Whitehead and Dr. Tory refer.  But there is another sort of nationalism. It is ruining nations; it ia  stifling mankind. It has brought about the present depression. It is causing  unemployment, ruin and suffering. It is heading this war-scarred old  world inevitably toward a grimmer conflict than any in history; a conflict  wbich, unless it is avoided, may witness the destruction of civilization as we  kaow it.  It is that kind of nationalism, which is based in a false conception of  racial superiority, where one people look down upon, other peoples, where  racial color lines are drawn, where differences in language and religion are  emphasized to the supposed advantage of one group of people over other  groups. Nationalism founded in false pride and pretensions, based upon  purely selfish considerations and an utter disregard of all other peoples and  nations, nationalism which would seek glory and aggrandizement for itself  at the expense of all others, does not qualify any nation for a place in the  international arena, does not lift a nation above other nations, does not raise  mankind to a higher level, but reduces all to a lower level and takes the  glory that should be in life out of it.  "When, following the Great War, the League  of Nations was brought  Into being, it had for its object the uplifting of all nations, the development ,  In action of a brotherhood of mankind. In keeping with that aspiration the  Peace Treaty made provision for the self-determination of races and nations.

This narrow nationalism fostered suspicions of other nations, was built  and thrived upon fear of others. It impelled nations, not to remove existing  barriers to international intercourse, but to erect new and even more insurmountable barriers. It resulted in a mad race of still greater armaments,  the spending of untold billions in preparation for future wars." It led governments the world over to spend and spend madly without due regard to the  national income or even of the economic and financial capacities of all  nations combined.  Thus narrow nationalism developed at the outset at such a rate and to  such an extent that it largely smothered the League of Nations ideal of a  true Internationalism founded upon a sane nationalism which only desired  such glory and power for itself as grew out of the fact that it was making a  larger and finer contribution to mankind at larjfe than other nations were  making.

"The  generous rains for some time to  come iff sun-spot data collected by the  Dominion Observatory runs true to  form. According to observatory officials, Canada is now approaching a  "sun-spot period," which should p:ro-  duce plenty of moisture for the western grain fields.  The effect of sun-spots, it was explained, is to Increase the rainfall  over a long period.  A sun-spot period lasts for 11 to  11 Vz years. This doe3 not mean that  tremendous quantities of rain will fall  for a short: period, but rather that  over a long period the precipitation  will be higher than when the sun-  -spots are not in evidence.  Heavy rains in different parts, of  the world at present were hardly attributed to sun-spots.  To begin with, in the absence of accurate world data, .scientists were unwilling to agree that the rainfall over  the world has been exceptionally  heavy.

The Express quoted an article in &  Canadian magazine by Lieut.-Col. J.  B. McLean, about alleged attempts to  create discord between Canada and  Great Britain.

He   stated     that    in    his  opinion that until we  knew just  what  work   his  service  entailed  that it  was quite   impossible  to  estimate     the     cost,      Creston  delegate then moved that Robson  Co-Operative, Grand  Forks  Co-  Operative,      Creston       Grading  Station, with Mr. McKim acting  on    behalf    of   the  Nelson  producers affiliated with  the  association     this    service.

In a statement Mr.  Mnrpll is -nrpnarins for the  Farmers' Institute grading station patrons Mr. Murell says:  After   the    reading     of     the  minutes of the organization meeting held last fall one was considerably   surprised     when   the  chairman got up and  expressed  the opinion that they would be  able   to   accomplish   very little  more in the future than had been  accomplished up  to the present  time, and that it seemed that the  wise thing to do was  to wind  it  up.    A lengthly discussion followed and it was early apparent that  there   was   a   discordant factor  somewhere     and     which     was  brought to a head by the accusation that the Grand  Forks  Co-  Operative had been cutting prices  to the detriment of the Robson  and Aitow Lake shippers. Messrs.  Megitt and Morrison from Grand  Forks were able to  give a  satisfactory   explanation   of the incident and  it was entirely   due  the    support   that   these    two  gentlemen gave Creston's representative that it was possible Lo  eventually get the bureau of information appointed.  The convention was handicapped by having two marketing  organizations hostile tp each  other and the Nelson district  absolutely without an organization and every producer trying to  get ahead of tho other. During  the discussion a committee was  appointed consipting of Messrs.

Mr. Bishop stated that he considered that now we had started  to do something a number of  individuals would join up who  had been undecided whether it  was worth while joining. The  old officers were put back, and  D. Bradley is again the director  in charge of this district.  While the need of storage . was  freely admitted, and  it was also  agreed that  storage facilities at  Nelson and Creston  would have  to be  developed,  the  matter of  ways   and   means    .was    never  properly   discussed   and, indeed,  there waa no time to go into this  important   matter,    but  it   was  clearly     demonstrated     that   if  Creston wants this storage  Creston must go ahead  and organize  its own.

It is sincerely hoped that  all growers will avail themselves  of this opportunity of freeing  their potato patches, or acreage,  of this pest, by dusting with the  poison supplied, as it is only by  co-operation of all that complete  control can be obtained.  Pick off all adult beetles as  soon as they emerge from the  ground when potato tops first  start growth, using s can to "drop  them in ana destroy. Don't use  the fingers for squashing as the  job will prove disagreeable.  Later on watch out for the first  hatching out of the egg masses  and start dusting right after.  Don't wait till the bugs get large  or your work may be continued  indefinitely.  Use sufficient dust to make a  uniform bloom on the foliage, but  don't whitewash your plants as  this will merely cause the bugs to  remove to greener feeding.  The control of the potato  beetle in East Kootenay the last  few years has been inost successful and hV is' dnl^-by thorough  attention at the right time that it  can remain so. Remember  France lost $60,000,000 worth of  their potato crop last year by  depredations of the Colorado  beetle, which made its first  appearance in that country after  the great war. --  Dust will be on hand., as usua������  at all convenient centres.

D������w  r1<__--  The 1982 strawberry shipping season  is getting under way, and if the expected  hot weather makes its appearance before  the week is out a' considerable volume  will be "moving by the mid.le of next  week, with Wynndel counting on loading out its first straight carload not later  than the 27th. Since Tuesday the  weather has been cool and rather cloudy  and the berries are slow in maturing.  Wynndel had its first crate moving on  June 7th, and two days later the Reed &  Mather ranch at Alice Siding had a day's  export of 11 crates. Early this week  small quantities were also moving out of  Erickson.  At Wynndel shipping had increased to  200 crates yesterday, all of which was  being handled at points as far east as  Medicine Hat. Due to the poor buying  power en the prairie strawberries are not  expected to be as profitable as 1931. At  Wynndel the crop looks promising and  with the right kind of weather the output there might exceed 1932 by 20 per  first to start strawberry shipping this  season, with a first shipment on Thursday last of 11 crates. With- cooler  weather prevailing shipping is quite light  so far.  Alfalfa cutting is general in this district, harvesting operations getting under  way at the first of the week.  Rudolf Carr is again in charge of  strawberry shipping for Long, Allan &  Long, Limited, at Beed & Mather siding,  commencing Thursday last.  Mrs. Ostendorf and two children,  accompanied by her brother, arrived at  the end of the week from Rosthem,  Sask., to join Mr. Ostendorf, and to  reside here permantly.  ccording    to  __A. .,:..--_  uiuuma  Wynndel   Co-Operative Fruit Growers  Association.  Long, Allan & Long, Limited, report a  berry tonnage in excess of last year. As  in 1931 the firm is shipping from  Wynndel, Reed & Mather's, Creston and  Erickson. In addition to berries they  report gooseberries also on the move.  Some reduction' has this year been  made on the pay of pickers and packers.  At Wynndel the agreement entered into  is for payment of 30 cents per crate for  picking and 12^ cents per crate for  packing Up to the present there is no  shortage of help, . all districts in the  valley as well as a larger than usual in  flux of prairie people solving the labor  problem much more satiafactorily than  in previous years.

In the  other fixture at Kitchener, Porthill won  by a 4-0 margin.  The warmer weather at the weekend  put the Kootenay River at t__e highest  flood stage of the year, and early Wednesday morning it went over the dyke at  the north end of the Reclamation farm,  all of which is now under water, and a  considerable acreage of growing wheat  will be a total loss.  R B. McLeod of Kimberley, and  formerly on the Speers' store sales staff,  accompanied by Mrs. McLeod were  visitors here on Wednesday. Mr. McLeod is now manager of the company  store at Kimberley and was on a visit  booking the season's supply of strawberries at Wynndel.

Today I will review  the Official System. This system wes  devised "by the united efforts of several bridge experts to remedy what  they considered were- defects in the  Approach-Forcing System. Added to  this was the idea that the conventional part of the game could be made  easier for the average player.  The Ofncial System differs from ths  Approach-Forcing System only  slightly. The chief differences ara  noted below.  1st.    The Opening Bid of One.  In the Official System the opening  bid of one is made on a hand containing from two to three and one-half  quick tricks, and guarantees that in  the declared suit the bidding hand  will take from four to five tricks. This  is practically the same as the minimum opening bid of one in the Approach-Forcing System.  2nd.    The Opening Bid of Two.

U.    11)40  game of contract is a battle of wits,  with the main battle bein������" fought before the cards go on the table, then  it is logical to think that the use of  any bidding method which gives too  much information to the opposing  side is bad strategy, if hot bad contract. Personally I am of the opinion  that applied to certain types of hands,  the bid is valuable but I do not think  this certain type of hand comes often  enough to warrant the inclusion of  this bid in any system. For oa the  average it may be said that in- the  Official System. over eighty per cent.  of the opening bids are bids of one.  The opening bid of three in the  Official System is similar in its application to tiie opening kid of two in  the Approach-Forcing System. It is a  demand bid and guarantees game for  the particular deal in which it is  made.  Except then for the variations in  the opening bid convention, the Official and the Approach-Forcing Systems are practicallv aligned. The  Jump-Shift bids are forcing in both  systems and methods of , overcalling  used are alike. The weak no trump  response by partner to nn opening  bid of one is identical in both systems. Trie no trump original bid ������Is  used more frequently in "the Official  System than in the Approach-Forcing  simply because the bids made on four  card suits in the Official System must  have a stronger honor trick four card  suit than is required by the Approach  Forcing.  However, both systems are easy to  play and it is not a hard matter for  any player to familiarize himself  thorotighly with the salient differences between them, so that ho can play  whichever system his partner desires  him to play.

Devotional Reading: Luke 2.11-52.  Explanations and Comments  - Jacob and His Family Journey To  Goshen,   46.1-27.���������The  moving  scene  in our last week's lesson closed with  all barriers* down. Joseph and his  brothers were united in peace and  love, and Joseph planned with them  for their speedy settlement in Egypt.  Laden with presents���������raiment and  silver and all the good things of  Egypt���������the eleven brothers returned  to Jacob. "Joseph is yet alive, and Is  ruler over all the land of Egypt!" was  the .astounding news they brought to  their father, who had so long mourned for Joseph as dead. No wonder he  could not believe them at first; When  he saw the wagons which Joseph had  sent to transport his hojosehold. he  cried: "It is enough; Joseph my "son  is yet alive: I will go and see him  before I die." "  At last ail were ready for the journey to Egypt���������Jacob and hi3 sons and  their households, their cattle ��������� and  their goods. At Beersheba, on the border of the sand waste which lay between them and Egypt, the caravan  halted and offered sacrifice. Everything reminded Jacob of his early life  there. In a vision that night Jacob  received God's assurance that the  journey to Egypt was for the best,  and the promise that his descendants  should become a great nation was repeated. The prospect of any greatness  still seemed remote at this time.  These wandering clans needed just  such a place as Goshen In which to  increase in numbers undisturbed by  hostile neighbors; a place, too, where  they could learn from the Egyptians  something of the arts of life. Therefore it was God's plan for them to  find in Egypt an asylum where they  could live a settled life. The bringing  of Jacob and his sons into Egypt  brought about that consummation.  Tlie Meeting Of Jacob and Joseph,  Genesis 46.28-34.���������On the confines of  Egypt they were met by Joseph.

The name of the former kaiser  occupies a prominent place in the  letters, in which the late queen is  revealed as an advocate of forbearance when his doings aroused hostility.  This was particularly noticeable at  the time of the Boer War when th������  kaiser sent a telegram to President  Krueger of the Transvaal in South  Afriea, which excited" indignation on  the part of the British nation. Queen  Victoria shared in the indignation,  but kept her restraint.  "It wouldn't do," she wrote, "to  give him a good. snub. Sharp, cutting  answers and remarks only irritate  and de harm, assd in sovereigns and  princes should most carefully be  guarded against.  "William's faults come- from im-  petuoushess, as well as conceit, and  calmness and firmness are the most  powerful weapons in such cases."

It was the fact  that he had hurt her physically, laid  his hand .upon her in actual violence,  which had scattered Nick's self-control to the four winds of heaven.

"No. The boil-  ingf over part is done with���������finished.  . . . . I'm going to take her away  from him."  He spo"ke with a curious precision.  It frightened Jean far more than any  impetuous outburst of anger could  have done. She made no answer for  a moment, but her mind worked rapidly. She did not doubt the absolute  sincerity of his intention. This was  no mere reckless boast of an angry  lover, but the sane, considered aim  and object of a man who has come,  by way of some long agony of thwarting, to a set determination;  "Do you mean that, Nick?" she  asked at last, to gain time.  "Do I mean it?" he laughed.  Then  his hands gripped the  arms  of tho  chair and lie leaned forward. I saw  her���������last evening after dinner. . ,  Her shoulder was black."

Her wholo soul  Was In revolt against the half-mad,  drug-ridden creature who was making of Claire's, life a dally martyrdom; the instinct to protect her, to  succour her In some way, asserting  Itself with  almost passionate  force.  And yet Sho know    that    Nick'a  way was not tlio right, way.  Nick stormed out the bitterness of  soul, recognizing the truth of every  word he uttered ��������� even the gibes  which, in the heedlessness of his own  pain, he flung at herself.  -Y Presently she got up-and moved  rather slowly across to his side.    -  "Nick," she said, and her eyes,  looking into his, were very bright and  clear and steady. Somehow for Nick  they held the semblance of two  flames, torches of������ pure light, burning  unflickeringly in the darkness. "Nick,  pay, you" know. Tlie woman always does.

Oh, Nick,  Nick! Between you���������you and Sir  Adrian���������you'd make an outcast of  Claire, make her life a worse hell  with you thanit is without you/' She  paused, then went on more quietly:  "Have you said anything to her about  this���������told her what you want her* to  .do?" ���������"., '. -/".'..'... .-���������''."������������������'. ,-'���������_,.  "No, not yet���������not deanitely."  Jean breathed a quick sigh of re-.  lief.  "Then, don't! Promise me you won't,  Nick?"  "She might refuse, after all," he  suggested, evading a direct answer.
