If we all have faith in Canada, in her institutions, in her enterprises,  in her resources, and we all work together striving for net greater  development and prosperity, there is hardly any limit. to the greatness to  which as a people we can carry our country forward.  But if in 1929, the Canadian, people are to realize the bright hopes  entertained for their Dominion at the dawning of the year, .there? must''be  a realization of the fact that each individual must do nis or her share.  There is not a Canadian citizen, no matter how humble the sphere they  occupy, "but who has it in their power to do something to either 'promote  or retard the welfare of the country during the next twelve months.  Of first importance is our own outlook on life. Tf that outlook is  a cheerful, optimistio one; if we are eag'er to see the bright, rather than  the dark things of everyday life; if we strive to see the good in all matters  and things wbr.ch affect ourselves and the community in -which we live;  if in our criticism of public men and affairs we seek to be constructive,  to build up rather than tear down; if, in a word, our thoughts and actions  are of kindly intent, then a good foundation is laid for our work of making  the new year th������ brightest, happiest, most prosperous Canada has ever  known.  Next in importance is it to realize that for the vast majority the best  service that can be rendered to Canada is to be found in the faithful  discharge off whatever duties may fall to us in the daily round of ordinary  tasks. For example, if, without a single exception, the farmers of the  Dominion tilled the soil a little better, used somewhat better seed, fought  weeds a little more vigorously, who can. measure -what tha aggregate  result would be in larger, better crops and resultant national prosperity?  Or, if every office clerk, every -workman and laborer, did their work ttxis  year a little more conscientiously, exercising greater care and promptitude,  the effect on the business of the Dominion would be tremendous.  Who can possibly compute the gain to Canada in 1929, if men and  -women, boys and girls, employers and employees, individually and  collectively, co-operated to promote health and prevent disease; by taking  only reasonable precautions largely reduced los i^PBSfaAtfe1 and property  through fire; by obeying the laws and observing the courtesies of the road  eliminated many of the preventable automobile accidents?  There is nothing very great or wonderful about these and sundry other  matters of a   like   kind. They   are   in ��������� no   sense   spectacular.   Their  accomplishment does not call for great executive ability, large wealth, or  high position. No, it is within the power of everybody, to contribute  their quota. ... ';.'"  But it is "just through the exercise of such commonplace qualities  as care, forethought, presence of mind, courtesy, faithfulness to duty in  discharging the smallest task, that this new year can be made exceptionally  bright, unbelievably happy, and enormously prosperous.  And is "Canada not worthy of such simple but effective service?  Consider all the countries in the world today I Can you name one that is  healthier, that has more varied ��������� beauty' of mountains, lakes, rivers and  forests, that possesses greater wealth of natural resources, that has less  poverty, fewer slums, a better system of education or of government, more  of the modern_comforts of life available to a greater proportion bf the total  population, or that offers greater opportunities for advancement to . those  eager and willing to work that they may take advantage of offered  opportunities?  Canada is deserving of the best we have in us to give, and if we give  it, as we should, there i3 no country in the world whLch will so fully and  so quickly reward the giver.  destroy  everything in  tory."  the    labora-  NO MEDICINE LIKE  i,e*5������V  Ve*  r?3!: *Pr:_Jl M IJ S-  irucra jti-uiu new aSiauua  the story and preserves the continuity of its action with the introduction  of a series of    clever    and    artistic  cameos which are interspersed -with  the big dramatic scenes of the play.

Before him lies the last geographical challenge to science���������f rigid,  formidable antarctic, a continent of  5,000,000 square miles which is so  little known that even a large- part  of its glacier-fringed coast line must  be m������pped by guess.  Byrd commands a million-dollar  expedition, equipped-as few, if any,  previous polar parties have been  fitted out,- and is prepared to spend  two years, if necessary, in wrestling  from the vast land^of silence secrets  that science has long wanted to  know.  - The party finds itself at The Bay -  of Whales���������one of the gateways io  the    continent ��������� virtually   at   midsummer,  when conditions  are' most  favorable for the flying which Byrd  plans to do.       Whether he will attempt an immediate   aerial   trip   to  the South Pole is regarded as doubtful;   it  is  believed,   rather,   that  he  will  postpone  this  spectacular  part  of his program until the expedition  has its second wind on the  storm-  swept tongue of ice that extends for  an indefinite distance in the continental indentation- known as Ross Sea.  On the " South American    side    of  Antarctic    is    Sir    George    Hubert  Wilkins, himself an aviator of note,  who is also known to be planning a .  polar flight.

Wilkins has already made at least ;  one long Antarctic , flight from his,  base at DecepttoflfMand near the;  Weddell Sea, and^henc^yflnds himself \  with a good bits of South Polar fly-  ing experience. , /  :   Wheo   supplies, have  been   swung =  ashore from thie expedition's boats,���������f  no small problem  itself in view-  of  the height of the ice walbr-the ' ad-,;  venturers will    erect    the    portable  houses  that are  to  be  their homes  during many :months.

Wigen marketed the surplus of  berries from his garden patch at  Wynndel In gallon containers  made by himself from cedar  shocks, to customers at Cranbrook,  found for him hy engineers on  the Crow's Nest Pasp railway,  who also took charge of the berry  transport, and growing to a 1928  shipping of 25,600 crates as "well  as 52 tong to 3am factories^ briefly states the development of strawberry growing in the Wynndel  area, about six miles west of here.  The records also indicate that  the first twelve years: we're Jthe-  worst, because it was not until  1913 that the requisite five growers were in evidence to form a cooperative association for marketing the crop, which number had  grown to seven the following year  ���������leaving two to the good to criticize the association management  of five directors.  And like 1913 and 1914 the present year also witnesses 100 per  cent, co-operation at Wynndel, the  original Co-Operative Fruit Growers' Association of Wynndel now  v v sum,  nt  M  waj ������  Shipped Later  <'*o"l'rt,������^y  Vernon.���������Growers  of  W<  the Vernon district, re  apples tri  almost exclusively to strawberries,' presenting an annual crop of more  the only   other   noticeable   1923 than *LQO,000 boxes, are opposed  output being 2,400 crates of rasp  berries and hardly more than  4,000 boxes of apples. In connection with the 1928 strawberry production co-op. officials estimate  that about 8,OJOO crates of this  year's berries were never picked  ���������these were ruined in a rainy  spell that continued over about  ten days at the end of June and  early July.  In handling a crop such as 19258  some 400 berry pickers and packers are employed, fully one half  of whieh are Doukhobors who are  brought in from Brilliant and provided with Uvingvq^ It is  estimated that fully $18,000.00 was  paid out in wages thia year to this  army of employees.  At Wynndel the preference is  for the Van San, Parson's Beauty  and Magoon varieties. Parson's  Beauty are favorites as they are  heavy yielders and stand up well  in distance shipping.  Up till 1916 an excellent market for Wynndel berries was found  in Lei. express shipments along  the Crow line, but in the year just  mentioned surplus in excess of the  Crow eountry demand rose and  shipping in car lots began, one  car rolling in 1916.

The new pre-coolers  cut the ice bill and necessary  handling in half. Instead of a  put up of 400 tons of ice not more  than 200 tons is now required. In  the building of the pre-cooler-and  the necessary railway siding  Wynndel growers have an investment placed at $20,000, thc pre-  cooler covering on area of 40x80  feet.  In 1928 still further advances  were made, this year witnessing  the erection of a 30x40 ft. Sharpe  freezing   plant.   It   has   storage  room for 45 tons of berries, and is  used for freezing berries that are  wanted for long distance shipping  for jam manufacture or other such  purposes.   In 1927 80 tons of berries were processed  in  tho  pre-  cooler and shipped to Toronto for  flavoring manufacture.   In financing both tho freezer   and   pre-  coolera, very generous grants havo  been made the Wynndel growers  by the federal department of agriculture.  Returns to the growers this year  to these apples going out as immature fruit and are asking that  in future the picking and shipment be retarded sufficiently to  allow this apple to go to the markets in a mature condition. In  making this requests the growers  realize that it may be necessary  to fix later dates for the shipment of other varieties of apples  which mature later than the  w������ea!ihiesv   They point out that  some years ago shipments of all  varieties began much later than  during the past season. They  would reyert to the previous practice of later picking and shipping  dates. R. Gr. Ij. Clarke, Dominion  fruit inspector, assured them that  if they do so .they will receive  fewer complaints from consuming  centres that the apples do not  stand up.  Following is the resolution  which was passed after a lengthy  discussion:  Whereas the crop of Wealthy  apples grown north of Okanagan  Centre represents approximately  thre'e-quarters of the total tonnage grown in the Okanagan and  in this northern district amounts  to approximately 200,000 boxes  this past season, ahd  Wherea% the picking and shipping of Wealthy apples has taken  place during the last three years  ���������at dates when this fruit was still  green and Immature, arriving at  destination in the same conditions,  hoth on our domestic and export  markets, thus depreciating its  $aies values and ruining its reputation.  Therefore be it resolved that we,  the growers of Wealthy apples in  the Vernon district, representing  an annual  crop  of over 100,000  boxes, declare ourselvesvto be absolutely  opposed to  the picking  and shipping of immature fruit  and desire that regulations be enacted by those in charge of distribution prohibiting the picking  or  shipment of "^ealthies until  such times in any season as it is  shown that they are mature and  ready for distribution;  it being  clearly understood that in order  to carry this out it may be necessary to retard the picking dates  of apples which mature later than  Wealthies. -:  There  are 1100 books on; the  shelves of Vernon public library.

The Unemployment Insurance  Umpire of the British Ministry of  Labor, has just struck a blow at the  dignity of a bricklayers' laborer who  refused to sweep a yard because he  considered that it was beneath hia  status.  If the foreman wanted him to do  general laborer's work, he said, hs>  would have to give him atrt hour's  notice terminating his engagement  as a bricklayers" laborer and reengage him a3 a general laborer.  The foreman told the man either  to do the work or clear put. He  cleared.  Then he made application for the  dole. The Employment Exchange  refused his application, but he appealed to the Court of Referees and  they sanctioned it. The Chief Insurance Officer, however, appealed to  the Umpire, who has just decided  against the man.  "If a laborer chooses to throw himself out of employment," .he says, tn  delivering his decision, "because he  considers his status would be impaired by sweeping a yard, he must  not expect to be compensated for his  loss of employment out of the "Unemployment Insurance Fund."

The London Financial Times  says it gathers that Barclays Bank  does not intend to extend its. operations throughout the; Dominion in  competition with -existing institutions, but that the future activities  of the Canadian branch will depend  on developments. The newspaper  draws attention, to two interesting  points, first, how far the new bank  will succeed in penetrating the exist-  ��������� ������-������������������������������������������      ������. ing system, and, second, its relations  NeWSOaper UE2iGIl 11 to the New York call market:    The  *'Financial Times expre'sses the opinion that if Barclays Bank fall into  ] the practice whereby Canadian banks  1 lend surplus funds in Wall Street, it  tviU mean the establishment of a new,  direct, connection between London  and New York, thus in part forging  a new and valuable link in the chain  of Empire banking. The proposal, i\.  is conceded,''* contains possibilities  likely to lead to interesting developments.  n  The Proven Asthma Remedy.

Explanations and Coanments  t  Serve God Only, verse 24.���������You  cannot serve, be the slave, of both  God ajnd mammon. The word mammon conies from af Syriac word  meaning that in which one puts his  trust, and because so many put .their  trust in riches, the word has come to  personify riches. You ceunnot put your  trust in God and also in riches. It, is  not a sin to have riches, but it is  a sin to?put your .trust in riches.  You cannot serve God and mammon;  there is room in your heart.for loyalty to one only, "How do you know  there is but one God ?" a fathfer asked his son, to test him.

For two days Connie had been no  nearer than the bluff. Seated astride  her horse, she now crazed in startled  awe on the nvasion of her loved val  ley. On the third day, drawn by a  horrible fascination, she ventured  timidly into the valley and watched  with wide eyes the advance of ttus  pygmy army, who, with such tiny  tools as the axe and saw, crashed to  earth mammoth frees that seemed as  enduring as the mountains on which  they stood.  The steam-shovel roared and  crashed in the distance as it ploughed  deep gashes in the green hillside, men  shouted, heavy wagons banged, ovei  he rough road, and fearful blaste  shook the air.- Through all this tumult the men worked in a frenzy of  haste.  A giant fir���������a veritable king of  the forest, towering in regal glory  high above its mates���������stood near the  water's edge. Around , the massive  bole of this tree Connie had played  since her. earliest recollection. She  had endowed this half-god with a living personality, to whom she had  confided all her childish fancies and  aspirations. The corrugated bark  bore - numerous. bits o-f nursery  rhymes, and her name was etched  deeo -withf-!a.'-sharp knife ih several  places. ..- With a lump in her throat  she saw the J"faUers" move to the  foot pf this great? freejanci gaze aloft  .with appraising eyes. Then sinewy  arms sent shining axes- through the  thick?;bark ?!to.f'i&rm:?,liM, f"scarf/  which to Connie appearced as a gaping ywhite. wound pn the f dark grey  tnink.-";'*-'.i      a'PZ fyyy -.- yy; f  As the cross-cut saw with its rasping, clang ate- ita way slowlyythrough  the  tough--fibre  of the great  titan.  Connie made  inarticulate sounds hi  her throat and for a .moment covered her eyesy As-the wedge was applied, a great shudder passed through  the tree.     The tower of dark branches at the top riodded as   if   ih   fond  farewell.      There was a pause, then  with a rending and tearing crash it  fell to earth with a thunder of sound  that filled the valley with a wild tumult of   echoes.       A   whistle   blew  shrilly, and the men picked up theii  coats and walked toward their camp.  For a short   space   Connie   stood  motionless.   Then,  with  a  last  Idng  look at the fallen monarch, she sighed deeply and turned to the trail.  ?:, That night at dusk she came again.  Donald came upon her as she crouched, a forlorn figure, by the prostrate  tree. Pointing  to her  fallen friend,  whoso top, was .torn and splintered,  she told Donald in halting sentences  oi tho day's disaster.    As he noted  the grave face and trembling lips, ho  wondered at the depth of feeling in  one so young.,    .His soft words, of  sympathy brought unseen  tears  to  her eyes, and she dared not trust her  voice in answer.  ; Hd spoke ;,to   her  cheerily on other subjects, but could  not shake her minlancholy mood.  Even the night calm was ravaged  by the thunder of blasts. A Lurid wall  of ilamo shot high In tho air as a  rocky portion of tho shoreline was  rent asunder, and huge boulders  plunged into tlio. calm lake, sending  up pyramids of water to break* In  noisy waves on tho shore.  Donald enjoyed tho unusual experience of witnessing tho construction  of a railroad, but ho understood now  why tho old trappor had wagged hlo  grey, head sadly when ho heard tho  clamour of striving irion nnd machijv  cry creeping up from the south.  Tho night work had censed, kind  a welcome silence acttled over tlio  chattered fforcat.

"I'm sorry: x"m  sorry I" she whispered brokenly.  ,  As if ia answer to her words of  compassion,  the veil suddenly lifted  from the moon and the wind ceased.  Donald     shook     himself,      "Rather  weird," he said, with a quick, nervous  laugh. He turned to find that he was  alone.  Events moved swiftly that week.  King's report    was    favorable    to  Donald's plan, and word came that  electrical, equipment for the Summit  Mill had been ordered.  At Donald's invitation Connie came  to the station to witness the arrival  of -the first train. As the awesome  black monster, .with whistle screaming and bell clanging, roared through  the rock cut at the south end of the  lake and bore down upon them, Con-  :nis^ gasped in wonder. As the train  came to a hissing stop she shrank  against the walls of the building, a  startled look in .her eyes. She flushed  at the-men's'hearty laughter.  The train was loaded with working-men. who with their bundles of  blankets overflowed the   small   platform.

A.portable mill was fast at work  turning out timbers for the big plant,  and . carpenters and mill wrights  worked night and day. An American  expert came with the machinery to  Superintend the installation.  With the new task set him. ;there  descended on Donald a deep sense of  'responsibility. Unlike the others he  worked no regular, hours. A feeling  of gratitude toward Robert Rennie  for the confidence displayed in him  kept him at top speed; his energy  and resource seemed inexhaustible.  From the time his alarm clock���������that  harsh, brutal little destroyer of sleep  ���������shrilled its call at daylight until  darkness filled the valley, he stuck  to his task.  One week earlier than the time  allotted ho reported the dam as finished.  Robert Rennie came with Renwick  and King for a short trip of inspection, and as he was leaving he spoke  a kindly word tn commendation ot  Donald's work.

That is the    dismal   prospect  suggested, by Professor Otto Jesper-  sen  in  his lecture  delivered  to   the  British Academy; and no doubt there  is     much evidence  in  favor of the  conclusion.       A  language  that  has  dispensed   with inflection  is  on  the  way to    "monosyllableism"���������a   word  I which, by the way, goes comfortably  far to correct the tendency which it  names.     Then there is also the subtle  Influence  of  slaiig, which   tends  always to invent some  short, sharp  substitute for any ward that places  the lea^t strain on the tongue;  and  popular custom inevitably adapts itself to the line of least"   resistance.  Then, again, there is the influence of  the American   vernacular, which    is  becoming more and mcyre potent in  this country, thanks to it's vivid, picturesque and humorous quality, which  so- easily disarms resentment of its  vulgarity. It is easy to believe, with  Professor Otto   Jespsrsen,    that  the  tendency"   to     monosyllableism      is  stronger ia English than in any other  language. Anyone   who    dabbles    in  verse-making is painfully  aware  of  the difficulty of avoiding those strings  of monosyllables which are so fatal  to rhythm and   cadenbe.      And   yet  there may be hope.      For, whatever  may be the syllabic degeneration of  their language; the    English * people  retain their simple .affection for long-  words.  When vho other utterance  of  Mr. Churchill's is    remembered,    his  phrase about    "terminological    inexactitudes", will    be .cherished    with  affection!.    _ And, after all, whatever  ihay be said against monosyllableism,  it can be   no   bad   thing   that   the  hsibifr of using simple -words for simple things    should    b&    encouraged.  There  is much  virtue   in   calling   a  spade a spade, instead of an agricultural implement.���������London Post.-  Visible Opera For Radio  "Visible as well as audible opera i&  a possibility of the not very distant  future for your radio set..
