The profits  for this year amount to $1,661,561 and  are over $100,000 in excess of last year������  and are the greatest in the history of the  bank. A balance of $718,954 remaine at  the credit of profit and loss account, or  $100 '000 ip excess of the amount carried  forward from the previous year.  Perhaps the most gratifying feature of  the statement is the increase of nearly  $5,000,000 in the deposits.   This increase  is entirely in the interest-b aring deposits and indicates that the bank still continues to enjoy its full share of popularity as a depository, particularly for savings  deposit   customers.    Contrary  to.  general expectations call loans on stocks  and bonds both In Canada, and elsewhere  are down over $6,600,000,   Oh the other  hand current loans and discounts in Canada have incwancd by ovor $12,000,000,  and now stand at the substantial sum of  [$80,000,000.     This  Increase  has been  mado    possible    by  the    increase   of  $5,000,000 In deposits above referred to,  by the reduction in call loans, and also by  p reduction of $2,000,000 in government  nnd   municipal  securities  held   by the  bank.

In the early fall a  prairie fire took his grain and hay crop  and neighbors stole the garden stuff, and  Mr. and Mrs. Stewart decided to locate  in the town off Hanley, where they remained for two years, moving from there  to Saskatoon, in which latter place they .  resided for just about  twelve months,  and then shifted west to Fernie, where  they arrived about  a  month  after the  big fire, and Mr. Stewart spent a busy  two years at his trade of masonry helping with the erection of the new buildings  particularly the hotels and churches, and*  recalls cutting and donating to the Anglican Church in that town the stone font  that is still in   use.    In   1908  Mr.   and  Mrs. Stewart and family  again   moved  west and located on their present ranch  in the Alice Siding section.  In thn span of half a century in their  family of twelve have been three deaths.  A daughter who died while the family was  in Hanley; Herbert, killed the great war,  enlisting nt Saskatoon v and Mrs. Seaver,  whom Creston will remember as Gertrude  Stewart, who was married here in 1914.

The changes made in the act preventing mixing in tho statutory  grades had not had much effect  this year because th ecrop did not  lend itself to mixing even if there  had been no law aga'nst it. Mr.  Ramsey said. Almost 90 per cent, of  the wheat crop was inside statutory  grades and 80 per cent, graded number one or number two.  niHV������H������H������nt4teN4Hi ���������**���������������������*<  ������*���������������������������������������������������**������������������������  Province..  Tke Mounting Toll of Accidents  "The problem now is to speed up the adjustment of humanity so that it  will xeep pace with the rap'dly increasing development of xaacninery.*'  In these words si -writer Lu a recent United States health publication  concludes an article dealing at some length -with the steady and alarming  increase in the number of deaths resulting from accidents. Illustrative of this  need for the whole human family to adjust itself to this changing age, it is  pointed out that vebereas adults rarely are the victims of fatal scalding in  the home, this type of .accident is not at all uncommon among childen who  have not learned to adjust themselves to the ordinary habits of domestic  civilization.    . While most public attention centres around the automobile, because from  it result more accidental deaths than from any other one thing, and because  accidental deaths associated with the automobile have increased so rapidly  during recent years, this emphasis tends to overshadow all other hazards and*"  may lead parents to feel that children are pei*fectly safe when out of the  streets and in the home. As a. matter of fact, the writer in question points  out, the mortality toll from other accidents^is more than double that from  automobiles. .  Indicating the enormous death tolT-from accidents, figures are quoted  showing that in the single state of Illinois, last year, there were more deaths  from accidents than the "combined Union and Confederate armies lost ih the  bloody battle of Gettysburg, in the Civil-War. Further, that in the last seven  years accidents in that one State accounted for more deaths than the United  States lost in soldiers "killed in action' 'in the Great War.  Coming nearer home, we learn from figures compiled by the Provincial  Fire Commissioner for Saskatchewan, and extensively published in the  weekly press of this Province, that during the -first nine months of this year.  more persons lost their lives through the improper and careless use of  gasoline and coal oil than occurred from similar causes in any complete  year for five or s?x years past.  All of which only serves to reinforce the opinion expressed in thc article  from which we have quoted that "practically all accidents happen because  the people involved are out of tune with their environment. Sometimes the  consequences are fatal to the person who is out > of tune, and sometimes they  are fatal to innocent people." In regard to traffic accidents the view is  expressed that these will come under control "just as soon as people  generally learn to adapt themselves to the new machine age."  Too much emphasis, perhaps, is laid on the need for more prohibitive  legislation and more stringent regulations, and too little upon the education  of the people, and* especially. children, in tlie. exercise of care and pla'n  common sense. Governmental and munic'pal enactments and regulations  there must be, but it has been amply demonstrated that speed limits alone  Will not stop reckless driving of motor cars, "stop" signs will not prevent  level cross'ng accidents, the label "Poison" does not deter a young* child  from drinking a harmful drug carelessly left within its reach," while matches  and loaded firearms lying around still have an irresistible attraction for all  youngsters.  The whole country is crying out for more good roads, hard-surfaced, all-  weather highways. No doubt they are an economic necessity and should be  provided to the extent tliat the community can afford to pay for their  construction and continued maintenance. But, 'until thc human family  readjusts itself to this new age, every additional mile of good road likewise  odds to the accident and death toll because people regard them as an  additional incentive to ".speed up" and -take risks they, would not dare to  take on an unimproved hlghgway. Statistics prove conclusively that more  accidents occur on thc better roads than on tlie Inferior and very poor ones.  Not restrictive laws and regulations, not more hard-surfaced highways,  nor more safety devices on and about machinery, good and desirable as thoy  ore, constitute the best protection aga'nst "accidents and avoidable death.  Real and the most effective protection rests with the individwtf* human  element. Adjustment to the ago In.which we live must be speeded up if this  blot and terrible economic loss of the mount'ng death toll from accidents is  to be removed from our present-day cIvlltaation.    ���������  Wide Umo Of Combines  In 1028,; states thc 'Department of  Agriculture, comb'nos Were used in  Western Canada to harvest wheat,  oats, burley, spring rye, fall rye, flax,  mveet clover, and bromo, from Winnipeg to the foot-hills of tho Rockies  nnd from tho International Boundary  to Township 80 in the Peace River  District.

RHEUMATIC PAINS  Cannot Be  Rubbed Out ��������� the  Trouble Must Be Treated  - Through, the Blood  -*       * ***  Thev pain of. rheumatism is .something that you cannot rub out. Every"  sufferer from rheumatism . has been  advised to rub this or that liniment  or oil on the affected part,,but after  all the rubbing the pain remained.  Thin -bloo*4 and rheumatism come together and if they are property  treated will go together. Anaemia  means thin blood, and thin blood is  something that can be corrected, so  why not build up the blood until the  rheumatic poisons are driven out?  This is exactly what is done iri the  treatment' Of rheumatism with Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. Rheumatism in  any form shows improvement as the  thin blood is built up, and when the  poisons in the blood are overcome  and driven out rheumatism disappears and does not return- so long'as  the blood is? kept rich and red. The  great value of Dr. .Williams' Pink  Pills in the treatment of rheumatism  is proved by the case of Mr. Thomas  Martin, of Novar, Ont., who says: ���������  "For some years. I was fso badly  troubled with rheumatism y that I  could hardly walk, and suffered great  pain. I had medical treatment but  did not get much relief. Then I decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink I^ills  and after taking the p'lls for some  time the trouble disappeared and has  not since shown the least sign of  returning."  You can get these pills from your  druggist, or by mail at 50 cents a  box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  Radio Roads Across Sea  New     Development    Would    TLJpset  Science    and    Art    Of  Ha.v9ga.tlon  . Remarkable  claims   are  made  on  behalf of the new-radio development  perfected by iff. Lott,  and-, just announced to the French Academy of  Sciences.

The prospect of increased  flow of exports ' from the United  States to China and Japan is interesting from the Canadian viewpoint because commodities such as  flour, lumber and autos are shipped  through the British Columbia ports.  Great Britain, it is pointed out, has  been in the Orient for ��������� a hundred  years and thereby reaps great profit.  A Canadian sidelight on the s'tuation  is the report from.

J.

The  movement .of wheat this year does not  exceed 25 per cent, of the movement  to this time last year," Mr. Hunger-  ford sa'd, adding that the future of  the situation was problematical.  -Because elevator space throughout  the West and at the head of the  Great Lakes is well filled with storage wheat, Mr. Hungerford did not  think there would be any considerable shipments for some time. A  feature of the 1929 grain transportation,, he said, was the movement West  via Vancouver. Fully 20 per dent.  more wheat has left the country by  that route than for the corresponding period. in 1928r thus decreasing  the tonnage shipped .via' Atlantic  ports of Portland, Me.; Boston, St,  John and Halifax.

It was pointed out to us that  existing prices on boxed apples  were too high to permit them being bought for camp cookhouse  Uxse; that it was considerably  cheaper to buy canned apples  in the larger sized-containers, and  that this was being done.  Were it possible to get the better sort of just-undersized fruit by  the sack purchase of apples supplied in this fashion w~uld be  popular in all the camps, and  where lumbering is as extensive  as it is in East Kootenay would  mean a considerable movement of  apples that are now uncalled for,  particularly as there is no cannery  to take care of the so-called cull?.

D, Robertson, of Dominica, B.W.I., who arrived at Saint  John on the R.^I.S. Lady Nelson, of  the Canad'an National Steamships,  from the West Indies.  Captain Robertson, who took up the  cultivation of oranges and grapefruit  at Dominicans a hobby after the war,  stated that there were excellent possibilities for the cultivat'on of citrus  fruit on the Island of Dominica, and  he said that at the Manchester Exhibition, the Dominica oranges and  grapefruit captured first place over  the California product. Eighty per  cent, oi: his product consists of Washington navels, all grafted on sour  orange stock. A unique feature of the  Dominica citrus fruit industry was  that on his estate he discovered several trees of Valenc'as, which had no  seeds.

Yes,  it'was the same old battered instrument; he had composed some of his  early hits while sitting in front pf it.  Without thinking:, he ran his hands  Vghtly up and down the keys. What  fingers! They were stiff, grimy,  bruised, sore. Their" play across the  keys was painful and slow, yet in the  old days they had danced up and  down the scale in nimble ease. . . .  Al looked up, hearing .a faint sound,  and turned his head. Grace stood  in the doorway.  -Grace had, entered as quietly as  -possible:- she wanted to study him  before he saw her, for' she knew that  in that flash second her intu'tion  might give her a clue as to the best  way to proceed with him. Now, as he  stared up at her with .startled eyes,  his really, pitiable condition was accurately revealed. She answered his  stare with an expression of tender  sympathy.  "Al?" she whispered softly.  "Grace!"  Why, it's really you!"  For a moment    she    thought    he  would cry.      He se-'zed her hand in  both his own and gazed steadily down  into her eyes.     His grip was so hard  that it numbed her fingers; she felt  he was literally clinging   to   her   to  save himself from breaking down. All  the force of her deep maternal spirit  was directed toward him;.she longed"  to take him in her arms and' comfort  him.  "You've changed a lot!" he exclaimed in astonishment.  Grace refrained from saying he had  changed too.  "Have I?" she questioned brightly.,  "Well, I've    grown   older,    for    one  thing.'*    f  "Yoii'rd much more beautiful than  you were," he continued earnestly.  "And you were always a winner."  Again Grace smiled, ' and deftly  turned the conversation. "How have  you been,. Al?"     '  He glanced, down at the frayed  cuffs of his coat sleeves. "Judge  for yourself." He grinned ruefully.  "But, Al, you'don't have to look  like that.   You have money."  '<Yes, hut I don't want it���������I don't  use it."  - Grace waited a moment. She had  the same sense of .the passive barrier of despair between Al and her  that Blackie had felt. Yet thbre  must be a way to cross that barrier!  She said firmly:  "Blackie tells me you mean to stage  a come-back.'  Al shook his head. "Blackie's  wrong." But as he said that tho  young song writer glanced away; he  was ashamed to face Grace.
