Motor traffic was a little under last  year's record; on the other hand a  larger amount was more intelligently  spent on local roads, highways and  bridges.  Commendation must be passed to  those engaged in the lumber and kindred industries; their payroll is a very  important factor in the well-being of  the Valley, the J. B. Winlaw Company being still actively engaged in  production on a large scale and deserve certainly their meed of credit, as  also must the Putnam Palmer Staples  Company, the latter having erected .a  new mill on the north and south road  and are loading their product out at  Creston. station.  The enterprise of C. O. Rodgers  has shown itself in his expenditure of  some $40,000.00 (forty thousand  dollars) on his new .mill and factory  plant at Creston, which means die employment of a number of hands, greatly benefitting the community.

Forward   Step  The development and growth of Canada politically, economically, in  commerce aaid finance, in production from its natural resources of the-field,  the forest, the mine, and the waters of the Dominion has, during the first  sixty, years of Confederation, heen most gratifying. This is now fairly-generally recognized. It is also the general belief that Canada is just entering  upon a still greater era ot expansion and development. in many directions  leading to a greater growth aod larger prosperity.  The  ouestion.  however,  which,   to   an  incrensinsr  oxt^n^   1������ ortiiin������- iy������i-  ��������� ' * ~   ~ a.^  a  ��������� ���������o       ��������� ~ ���������  eerious consideration is: What policies should be adopted and steps-taken'to  insure tliat this future development shall proceed along lines that will result  in building up a strong nation, and in siach a way that maximum henclits  from such development shall accrue to the whole people of the Dominion-?  During the pioneer stage ju any coxantvy's development it is inevitable  Discuss Coal Subsidy  /       ..  Subsidy To Railways For Transporting Alberta Coal Should Come  From Sioftiinioii Government  Any subsidy to the railways for  trans**vortinc> J*- p*"*w'������ ccsl to Ontario  should come from the Dominion Government and not from" Ontario,������������������"said  Premier G. H. Ferguson in the Ontario legislature, in reply to a question of .1. G. Lethbridge, Progressive  leader.  Mr. Lethbridge asked what the attitude of thc governanent was in view  of recent suggestions made in the  press. Mr. Ferguson pointed out that  the railways wanted $9 a ton whereas the actual cost as determined by  the railway board was $7. The real  cost, he thought, was ncaarer $8.75.  There was a siaggestioaa, said the premier, that if? the Dominion Govern-  ment'wOtt'iii'-contribute a subsidy ox ������1  a ton, Use pruvhis.^ of Ontario and  Quebec should ��������������������������� joitty.in providing aa--  other dollar-, ..��������� ?  ihat its people devote their energies largely to. the production of primai'y-  articles, largely raw materials. But with increase In population, thc provision of adequate means of transportation, and the accumulation of wealth,  a country should move forward in the work of not only producing such law  materials in increasing quantities but in utilizing them in the manufacture  of finished articles.  It is important that crude methods in production of raw materials De  discarded for those best calculated to give larger quantities, better qualities,  and at lower costs: that all possible waste be eliminated; that as many byproducts as possible be reclaimed, and that vise be made of low-grade and  off-grade materials. It is perhaps of even greater importance to ascertain  the nature of pests and other agencies which now operate to destroy our raw  materials at their source, and to discover effective means for their eradication.  The discovery of ail these things can best be brotight about through the  painstaking eSort of the expert in scientific lesearch. Such work may require years of study, investigation and experiment. In many, perhaps niost,  eases it will cal! for laboratory and other expensive cqaiipment. In the past  Canadians have not fully appreciated the importance of such work, and as  a consequence have iaot been prepared to provide tlie necessary public funds  to carry it on. As a people we have been so busy attending to our own particular problems, and demanding immediate solutions of them, that we have  been impatient of ideas based on. long and expensive scientific research. As  a result, Canada today lag3 behind other zsations in this respect, nations  which have not nearly the wealth of natural resources calling for development which Canada possesses.  . It is. therefore, -MghTf gratifying to learn of tSS action "of the House of  Commons in unanimously adopting a resolution favoring the establishment  of a National Research Institute by the Dominion Government, and of announcement by the Government of its intention to proceed with the erection  of the first wing of a National Research Institute building on a ten acre plot  nt the central experimental farm at Ottawa.  Last year, it is stated, Canada spent $250,000 for research as compared  with $50,000,000 by the United States, and $25,000,000 by Great Britain.  This year the Government will, on the recommendation of the Research  Coaancil, increase the vote for research work to $750,000, and the Minister  estimated that three million dollars would be required during the next five  or ten years to construct and develop laboratories.  In this way the splendid work initiated by many of our Canadian universities, assisted by private capital, will be supplemented, and the whole  work of research in Canada co-ordinated and developed. When it is^realized  that Canada is estimated to be losing at least twenty million dollars a year  through graiai rust alone, the possibilities of gigantic gain throush research  work can be grasped. A few millions a year spent in research work may  easily mean a gain of ten times as many millions through discoveries made.

The value of." Dr. Williams' Pink  Fills in the case of anaemic girls is  proved by the <:ns&oI:,MimJjnQ^r^od^  dart, Margaretviile, 1-7.S;. who says:  "From the age of 12 to 15, I was ip  an anpynic condition. I was very  thin and nu'vous, had no '-appetite and  had no desire to take part in the  doings of those of my age. My mother got tonic after tonic for me, but  they did me very little good. Then  a* Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were recom  mended and almost from the' first  they seemed to be just What was  needed to restore^ my strength. After  taking the pills for a time I felt an  altogether different girl. I got up in  the morning- feeling bright and active, and ready for work or play.  Since then I have always taken a  couple of boxes of Dr? Williams' Pink  Pills in the spring as a tonic and have  thus kept in the best of condition."

In milch cows we have no large  number of any one strain but placing  the number of grade cows producing  milk and butter for local use 1 75 would  be about right.  In the way off sheep, there are about  500 in the valley, 350 of which are  breeding ewes, including several Kara-  kal sheep.  Pigs of course, do well and breed  prolifically, but,are mostly consumed  locally.  Goats, more particularly of the  Toggenberg strain are thriving in the  valley, and it is estimated that there  are now over sixty, and an evident desire to increase the number of these  milk goats.  During the year there were shipped  out of Creston:  852 raw hides, approx. val. $2982.00  258 head cattle, approx. val, $6708.00  22 head horses, approx val. $ 880.00  POULTRY  Reliable figures are difficult to obtain but going very carefully into the  subject with some of the larger producers, such as P. G. Ebbutt, W. L. McAlpine and others, a fair estimate  works out as follows:  Fowls In valley, 6500, val $12,000  Fowls sold for table, 12,000  pounds     2,la80  Fowls sold for breeding pens  600       2,000  Day old chicks shipped, 14,000 4,000  Eggs sold and shipped  1500 cases, 45,000 doz    16,000  Ebks consumed hy producers,  say      2,000  A total of   837,100  HONEY  Honey  produced  in thc valley ���������  13,000 pounds to about 260 hives.  FUR RAISING  Another lane of industry is coming  into being and that is the production  of fur. We already luive two fox  tarmt* and one coon farm, besides a  number of people breeding Chinchilla  rabbits.  HAy AinD Ffc.fc.lJ  The wild hay cut last season was  somewhat disappointing, only 450 tons  being  officially cut,   a  falling off of  some 60 per cent, on account of abnormal   water   conditions.     However.  to make up the deficiency there were  some  ������_^v sG&wS or. a������^Ou*t, /uy toss Oi \  wheat, hay, -straw and oat hay hauled  over the old K. V. track  (the North  and South road) from Rykerts, which  saved the situation in so far as the local  breeders were concerned.     I might say  at this juncture that had it not been  for the foresight of the business men of  Creston  lending  their  assistance  to  a  local 'mill   company   in    opening    the  North and South road for winter traffic that a considerable loss to livestock  would   probably   have   resulted.     Im-lS  port of hay and feed into the Valley j ji  again    amounted    to    a    considerable  amount as tuere were 51  cars of hay  brought in amounting to about 1,100  tons, of a value o fat least $20,000,  and 12 cars of feed of various kinds,  such as wheat, bran, crushed oats, all  of which might be produced in the Valley by our local farmers.     However,  it is pleasing to note that some of our  wide-awake farmers are already going  iu. ior uEaotny nay and. iu iSUia. CKOps,  among whom may be mentioned  Messrs. D, Learmonth, Hilton Young,  F. Putnam, C. O. Rodgers and others.  MOTOR TRAFFIC  The tourist motor -ibraf fie was not  quite so great as last year due no doubt  to the rainy season. However, it is  still of large dimensions. The total  number of motor cars crossing the International Boundary into Canada this  season amounted to 5846, and  they carried as passengers 16,678  persons. (Note���������local Canadian motors crossing the line for a few hours  or so are not included in these figures).  fCoar.tinned on Page 5.  SYNOPSIS OF LAND  nv a.

"Iu is no use exiDeHanentiug upon  a diseaseunless 'we* lirst of all know  something of its natural history; and  yet the general concensus of opinion  aanong-st surgeons, which tlaey have  no hesitation in circulating, is that  the cause of cancer is not kaiown. Yet  they continue to treat it by methods  that apply only to a local outcrop,  which, much to my regret, I was  guilty of doing for a number of years  before ray eyes were onened to the  folly of it." "  "The fact remains that operative  treatment for cancer has been practised from time immemorial and  from nay knowledge of tlie disease I  affirm that the knife has never cured  cancer in a single instamce*, but, on  the contrary, has only succeeded in  aggravating the disease and adding  to the sufferings of the poor patient; and also shortening his or her  life, which latter, perhaps, might be  looked upon 3s a godsend in tbe circumstances."  "Now cancer is a blood disease���������  and there is no gainsayiaig this���������the  local manifestation being merely an  outcrop of the malady, the cause being prolonged toxic condition of the  blood."  Love of humanity and truth impelled the internationally celebrated  British cancer surgeon Dr. Robert  Bell, M.D., FaR������C.P.S.. &c., to abandon his lucrative surgical practice  and, with convincing proofs of his  above quoted statements this eminent  authority successfully opposed and  refuted the modern orthodox methods  of treating the deadliest known disease.

I tried the Tablets and she was relieved at once. She was also troubled  with constipation and nothing seemed  to help her. I had used the Tablets  but a short time before her bowels  were regular.

"My little daughter Can only  child, Luke 8.42), is at "the point of  death; I-.pray Thee, that Thou come  and lay Thy hands on. he*.', that she-  may be made whole, and live." The  ruler was a proud' Pharisee, and wye  have seen how bitterly hostile to  Jesus the majority of the Pharisees  had become by this time. No thought  of what others said about Jesus deterred Jairus from seeking Hian, ana  no thought of his own station held ham  back from throwing himself in an attitude of worship at the feet of the  l**"1 abb'      TM-i a va   -rtrha    vara    ar������4-    rvp    VinmOffi.  he would not render if only his beloved child might be restored to him.  II. The Triumph Of Faith, verses  24-34.-���������Jesus assented to the ruler's  urgent request, and was on His way  with him to his home, followed by a  great crowd of people, when an inter*-  ruption came. There was a woman in  the throng who had been ill for twelve  years and had spent all her money  on physicians, under whose treatment she had suffered much, but had  grown worse rather than better. This  recalls the ancient Jewish saying  that "Even the best of doctors deserves Gehenna." This woman pushed herself forward and touched the  garment of Jesus in the belief that  the touch would cure her.  "If I touch but his garments, I shall  be made whole," the woman said to  herself. "Daughter, they faith bath  made thee whole; go in peace, and be  whol** r>������ th**r r*i3������rue " were tlie comforting words the woman heard.  WhiLe Jesus was speaking with the  woman, there came a messenger from  the ruler's house   who    said   to   the  ruler,   "Thy  daughter  is  dead;   why_  troublest thou the Teacher any further?"      "Fear   not,    only    believe,"  were the    comfortin������*    words    which  Jesus addressed to the stricken father.   Jesus then continued his way to  the house of Jaiarais, but "permitted no  one to come with   hini f save   Peter,  James and John,  the three disciples  who especially .shared his confidence.  i On  reaching the  ruler's  house  they  heard the tumult'which was usual at  such a time, the weeping and -wailing  of hired mourners. "Why make ye a  tumult and weep?"    Jesus    said    to  them:  "the child is    not   dead,    but  sleepeth." By these words Jesus' did  not  deny that physical life had departed.   The people in the house took  the words of Jesus literally, and by  their scornful laughter said that they  knew she was really dead. Jesus put  them all out of the room,  allowing  only his three disciples atfd the father and mother  to  remain. Then he  took the child by the hand and said in  Aramaic   , Talitha,    cumi,    that    is,  "JDamsel, I say unto thee, Arise."

European motors  ists which, in turn, will be transmitted to a much wider circle of people  on the two continents Willi it is hoped,  be engendered as a result of two  personally conducted "goodwill" tours  to Europe this summer organized foy  the White Star Linef under the official  auspices of the Montreal Motorists'  League, it is stated in an official announcement by the White Star Line.  A novel feature of the tours will be  that those going to Europe with these  parties will take their own cars and  motor through Europe and Great  Britain.  Wherever tliey go receptions will  be iarranged in the principal cities  and it is anticipated that the Touring Club of France, and the Automobile Association of Great Britain,  with which the Montreal Motorists'  League ts affiliated, will, tender official receptions to the parties and, in  this way play their part In promoting  goodwill between Europe and the  North American continent.  Already thcro have been inquiries  from Winnipeg, Vancouver, Toronto,  several cities in tho province of Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba, and with  the annouraceanent of these tours in  the United States it is expected that  there will bo a regular string of requests from American motorists."  One of thc principal Ideas underlying these parties is to persuade Canadian and American motorists, who  already have much in common, to  travel across thc ocean together and,  by personal contact with motorists  in Great Britain and In Europe build  up a Armor feeling of friendship between tho people on the two continents.  Tho first party, with their own  cars, will sail from Montreal on tho  Whjto Star liner "Mogantic," on July  7$, nnd return from Liverpool on tho  VWhito Star liner "Calgarlc," on  August 31.  Tho socond group will sail from  Montreal on tho White- Star liner  "Albortlc" on September 0, and return from Southampton on the saauo  steamer on October 20.  TioUx tSicco pasties will follow practically the same Itinerary, landing at  Havre and motoring thence to Rouen,  through tho Canadian battleflolds by  way of Neuvo Chappollo, Amiens,  Doullons, Arras, Vimy Rldgc, tho  Somme, Lille, Tournay, Mow*, Cam-  bral, Bt. Quentin, Comptegno to Paris  where oovoral daya will bo spent, then  by way of Chateau Thierry to  S-tbelms, Verdun, Luxembourg and  Treves, Cdlogne, Alx   la   Chappelle,  Brussels, Antwerp, Amsterdam, The  Hague,  Rotterdam,    and    then    by  steamer to Harwich from where the.  party will make a circular   tour,   of  England and Scotland.
