If your talents are far  below   the   maximum,   even   far  below what you had hoped and  believed, why should you  dissipate what you  have in attempting to be what you are not, and  In fretting  because you  cannot?  How   many   of   us   exhaust   ourselves, and wear out our friends,  by chafing against the chains of  the  unalterable,  by  compraining  of the cards that are dealt to us  In   the   game   of   life.     Play   the   i  game the best you know how to  play it.    Give your life, your en-  j  ergy,  your  enthusiasm     to    the  game.     Remember, ^the   highest  success     is     not    living-making,  money-making,      nor     fame-making,   but  character  making."   It  is the way you  plby the  game!  To   play  the   game   right   is   to  play   it   "square."   *|t   means  to  drop   all   selfish,    low   methods  and  to  meet   the   real   situation  by ideal means.  Clarence Poc, writing in his  book on "How-Farmers Co-Op -  erate and Double Profits," says  the. first thing to do in getting  business co-operation started in  any community is lo get thc  neighborhood waked up. And,  savs he, the best way, to get it  waked up is to organize a farmers' club and a club of farm  women.  "Don't organize," he says,  "merely because all other classes  are organised and farmers  ought to be, but organize for  business���������������������������determined to do  something.  "In order to get a club started  "A lesson in community ad-  | vcrtising that Southern California ought to heed," is what'the  [rural school district of a rural I-os Angeles Examiner calls the  township boast of having the campaign for Washington, Or-  best  roads   in   the  countrv.  or I egonyand British Columbia that  '  the best school, or the best  school library, or the' biggest  corn club, or the greatest number of painted houses, or the  best fanners' club, or the most  houses with waterworks, or the  most silos, or the  tercd cattle, or the  tive social life���������������������������which is to say,  the most neighborly people?

The  rno^t regis- Examiner in a quarter-page edi-  most attrac- torial exhorts Californians to do  likewise.  "The advertising is tactful  and Certain to be result-producing," declares the Examiner.  "It follows the line of least resistance by very properly calling  attention to its acknowledged!}'  great war work and then referring incidentally to its attractions to the Americans and Canadians who need recuperation  from the fatigues incident to the  stress of the world crisis.  "This is a distinct lesson to  Southern California. It also is  doing its share to help win tlie'  war, through bond-buying, Red'  Cross giving, through shipbuilding, through great productions  of grain, hay. fruit and vegetables. And likewise, Southern  California furnishes an appropriate resting place for the tired,  to thc end that they may, rcin-  vigorated, continue their labors  for thc common good."

A convenient arrangement is to  havc a small enclosure of onc  or two acres, preferably near  Ihe farm buildings, for lhe little lambs. Thc field may be  sown to a cultivated grass, such  as bromc or western rye, and  the aftermath1 from thc hay crop  used for the pasture- In this  case it will be necessaiy for the  hay to be taken off comparatively early in thc season so that the  aftermath will make good pasture. If, in addition, the lambs  have access to a small lot of un-  harvested ripe oats they will  progress favorably.  If it can be arranged, a plot  of rape will be found most useful in furnishing a large amount j  of succulent feed. Thc rape may)  bc cither pastured  off or may!  be cut each day and fed to the;  lambs. Bolh methods were tried  out at the Scott Station last season.    A plot of the Dwarf Essex rape in  the dry season of  1917 gave in one cutting. 7 tons  1,840 pounds per acre of green  feed.  Swine  For fall pigs, half-grown pigs>  and brood sows, some fall-pasture is necessary for economical  feeding. The rape will give an  abundance of feed during ..the  autumn months., In light soils  brome grass will help.out later,  and earlv sown fall rve will provide pasture late, in the, autumn.  The threp kinds of crop might  be in the one, small field. A little  patch bf ripe oats and peas will  give-the.young, pigs, a start off  for the cold weather.   For this  a  a.

Hon. C. J. Doherty, minister of justice, Hon.  Martin Burrell, acting minister of militia, and  Col. Biggar, judge adA-ocatc-general, had a long  conference on Saturday on thc Calgary situation.  At tlie close of the conference Mr. Burrell stated  he had Avircd to Col. George McDonald of Calgary  stating that the militia department would abide  by the undertaking Col. McDonald had personally  given to Chief Justice Harvey that none of the  men for whom. Avrits of habeas corpus had bcen  issued, would be removed from the jurisdiction  of thc courts, unless twenty-four hours notice of  intention was given the the sheriff.  FISH PWCES JUISEP  The profiteer is one Avho is more  interested  in getting  his   bite than doing his bit.  Vancouver"^ fish market recently established a  ?<rice of five cents a pound lor Pacific Coast flat  fish, and this has been the prevailing price for  some time. There was no little surprise, therefore, in fish market circles when an order came  from Ottawa tliat the price of fish should be  raised to ten cents a pound. Vancouver produce  men point out that before judgement can be  passed on the present fish situation, it must be  borne in mind that Manager Sherman's project  adopted in Vancouver is not very many Avccks  old. It is an innovation-i:**- the food world so far  as Canada is concerned, it is pointed out, and the  rulings of the Canada Food Board A\rere draA\Ti up  from information aArailable at the time.  "History has been made in Vancouver since  that time," one produce nian said to the Pro-  A-ince, "and there is no doubt that OttaAAa has not  yet been adAised of the success of the city's undertaking."  When this point of view jvvas placed before  Manager Sherman, he said  replied that shc usually had onc  cvci-y winter, but this onc was  ii   .       j   I   lhe worst shc ever had; it kept  i? i!

The paper came  out as usual the next week, but  thc editor gave up enquiring for  babies.  Charlie Chaplin Cancelled  Manager Morris, of the AAra-  lon Theatre, received notice this  week that he would have to  cancel Charlie Chaplin in "The  Rink" for the 22nd, as the Mutual Film Co., which supplied  him with the Chaplin films had  retired from business in Canada  ���������������������������removing their entire outfit  back to the States.

REEVES  Secretary  --_ Here and there, in the Dominion of Canada men who sec in  the military autocracy of Canada the curtailment of the civil  rights of the subject, are taking  strong objection to the highhanded attitude of. the military  authorities. Thc justices of lhc  Supreme Court of Alberta arc  not pleased wilh thc fact that  thc military authorities havc  open by defied the civil courts of  that province.  Lieut.-Col. H. A; Moore was  ordered lo appear before thc  supreme court but refused and  defied the civil authorities  to come and take him, evfcn  threatening to resist by force if  necessary. The affair reached a  climax last Thursday when Major J. M. Carson, assistant judge  advocate-generaj for the miji-  tarv authorities, at the request  of the chief justice, said that the  orders-in-council cancelling exemptions, were for lhe better  enforcement of the Militarv1  Service Act- Some very caustic  comments were then made by  their lordships.  Justice Peck���������������������������Oh, I see; in  order to better enforce the act,  they are taking men who do not  come under the act.  Major Carson explained that  summaries of the proceedings  had becn telegraphed to the ad  that it was in obedience to his  instructions that Col. Moore had  disregarded thc order of thc  court. Asa military officer lie  would bc liable to a much more  severe punishment by a military  court for disobedience of orders  than any that would bc inflicted  by a civil court.  The Chief Justice���������������������������How do  you know that? This is a very  serious matter. Thc question is  whether thc civil rights of subjects in this country have been  taken away.  Justice Beck���������������������������What the government might havc done would  have becn to say 'We doubt if  the judgement of this court is  correct, but until it is sett led Vve  w*lfTcvognizc it in this jurisdiction. '  ,        .  Major Carson again emphasized thc position in which Cpl.  Moore found himself, and asked  the bench in. case they should  find him guijty of wilful contempt, to taKe the circumstances  into account.  The Chief Justice���������������������������Colonel  Moore.cannot.be dealt with till  he js before tlie court, and evidently nothing short of a writ  of attachment wiJJ bring him  here-  Justice Stuart suggested thai  there might be other means of  bringing him before the court.

Follow this to a logical  elusion in your own mine  you will discover this, lhal a  man cannot have a religion distinct .and apart from his * business or occupation. Tt is in and  through his work that a man expresses himself, and his work  will reflect his religion. Men  may-pray long and loud, or they  may not pray at all; they may  preach and leach and exhort,  or they may never say anvthing,  but whether they say much or  little, whatever they say or leave  unsaid does not express their  religion. That can only find expression in the work they do.  Our week-day doings prove  our religion; not our Siindav doings.

Gregory  The coal measures down in  the earth may or may not be  near the point of exhaustion, but  it would certainly look as if the  "phosphorus," which is thought  to be the rough material out of  which thought is born, cannot  be made to last much longer.  At any rate, the aforesaid  phosphorus is being consumed  with an alarming rapidity.  Go into almost any one of the  libraries, public or private, and  what an array of strange titles  you will behold on the backs of  the books!  What strange, new subjects  men and women are reading  and thinking and talking about  ���������������������������Theosophy, Socialism, Anarchism, Christian Science, Spiritualism, Mental Science, Science  of Being, the Single Tax, Materialism, and every othcr sort of  ism conceivable!  There it is all spread out before you, inviting you to take  your choice���������������������������every ism and ol-  ogy that was ever thought of  or dreamed of in the seething  brain-pan of the "biped without  feathers!"  In these days there is no excuse for a person being without  a theory, cult or a creed. They  exist by the thousands and they  are as free as the grace of God.  Not only so, but the devotees  of these innumerable propagandas arc full of the zeal which  makes them more than anxious  to help the novice into the possession of the blessings they advocate.  Thinking of all this, wc are  forcibly reminded of thc ancient proverb, "In the multitude  of counsel there is safety."  If the proverb is true then we  are safe, or will bc pretty soon.  Of course the mischievous  thought will.forcc itself in, "To  what do- all these theories  amount, anyway? Are they not  "one and all mere will-o'-the-  wisps shining but to deceive and  to bewilder?"  Such thought is not altogether  Avithout its justification.  Truth?

Just as it is better to  have "loyccl ancl lost than never  to have loveel at ail," so it is  better to think, even though you  shouhl think, yourself up against  a problem which, for the time  being, you arc unable to solve,  than It wou|c| he for vou to sit  down, ahel not attempt to think  at all.      -      t  It.is something to have discovered that there is q problem;  and when, in addition to this,  we come to see that the problem  is a hard one, all the more earnestly will wc buckle ourselves  down to the task of mastering  it.  And so wc can sav nothing  hut "Welcome r_ Jo Jhe _multi-.  fudc .'of propagandas���������������������������even if  for the present time they prove  to be the propagandas of confusion.  Before the planets became a  "svstem," they were a mass of  wild-whirling star-dust, which  was more like chaos than cosmos; and before wc reach truth  wc must expect to be played  with and tantalized by a multitude of dreams and phantoms,  which, though ghostly and unreal in themselves, may have in  themselves the seeds of eternal  vtruth.  -���������������������������**,&  Men Who Do Things  The   joy   of   creation   more  than  returns  all  the  pains   of  labor; and, as the conscious labor against external obstacles is  the first joy of awakening life,  so   the  completed- work  is   the  most intense of pleasures, bringing to full birth in us the sense  of personality, and consecrating  our triumph, if only partial and  monetary, over nature.   Such is  the true character of effort or  will in action.   A man is a miracle of genius because he has  been     a     miracle     of     labor.  Strength can conquer circum-*  stances. The principle of action  is  too strong for any circumstances to resist.    It clears the  way,  and elevates itself above  every object, above fortune and  misfortune, good and evil.   The  joys  that come  to  us  in 4this  world are but to strengthen us  for some greater labor that is to  succeed. Man's wisdom appears  in his actions; for every man is  the son of his own work.���������������������������F. R.

"The question uppermost in thc minds of these educational authorities is nol 'How  through our schools shall we  train a child,' but 'How through  our schools shall we maintain  an Empire?'" That was but  one way of saying thai those responsible for public education  had not a clear understanding  of our real purpose of education. Thc maintenance of an  Empire may bc a worthy end  in itself, but it can never bc the  primary aim of educational activity.  Progress in any branch of human activity' demands intelligent criticism ol" methods employed, together ���������������������������with constructive thinking a.s regards the future policy lhal might well bc  adopted. Il may he ailirmcd also that, even destructive criticism is nol without i!s value.  Public inslruclion'in Brilish Columbia, especially Unit branch  represented by lhc secondary  schools, has come, in fory'ils  share of crilieism during thc  past few months. Il litis been  freely declared by crilics, some  of them shrewd business men,  lhat our High Schools do not  prepare boys lo intelligently take  up a trade, sland behind thc  counter, or follow lhc plow. In  other words, that secondary education as now carried on in thc  Province, does not enable a boy  to make a living any easier, or  afford- him a heller chance to  win oul in lhc race of life.. It is  doubtful whether any of these  crilics who base lhcir criticisms  solely upon a ulilarian conception of the meaning of education havc grasped lhc real significance of child Iraining.  These first decades of the  T.wcn_ticlh_.Century _hayc__bc_cn_  the most I'ruil Jul in lhc worlfl's  history in lhe study of thc child  in his "special needs. Psychology  has in recent years discovered  lo us lhal native tendencies of  childhood and youlh. as well as  lhc laws by which the personality is unfolded and brought to  perfect I'ruilion in character. 11  is here, then, lhal we find in thc  apt words of Unit far-sighted educator. Herbert Spencer; the  real aim of education, viz., "the  unfolding of our individualities  lo lhc full." The very suggestion of such a possibility'is a  challenge lo the born Icacher,  and opens up before, him a field  of study and of service at once  fascinating and fruitful'.-in results.  Tt i.s obvious lhal, if the aim.  of education be. as staled above,  llie. unfolding of personality, in  the earlier stages, al. least, a  child cannot be educated with a  view to any particular calling or  occupation. Thai would produce a harvesi of mis.fiIs. It has  been done so in the- past, and  not only has il denied to great  numbers lhc freedom essential  to true development, but has  robbed successive generations of  the peculiar advantage of a  splendid heredity. TL is'a. well-  known, law of Eugenics that  children born of -{/"well-developed parentage will inherit in  the proportion of ten lo one the  distinguishing qualities of their  forbears. ���������������������������  Up to, and in mosl cases including the period of middle adolescence, lhe course of study,  impact of lhc teacher's personality, environment of the home  and influence of the social life  should lend toward lhe great  psychological moment in lhe  life of a child in which he becomes conscious of personality,  and co-incident with this  awakening, becomes also aware  of the call of thc future to which  hc simply, because of thc completeness of his unfoldmcnt,  cannot bc indifferent. It is at  this lime, more perhaps than at  any othcr, thai the wise teacher,  parent or guardian will seek to  guide the unfolding life through  the "maze of questionings ancl  uncertain lies in lhe midst of  which il finds 'itself, until lhc  youlh shall have made those  menial, moral aid spiritual  choices -which fullv* determine  thc character. If at this age thc  boy or girl is slill indifferent lo  lhc call of lhc future and thc responsibility it imposes, great  names are. not wauling in the  educational world to support  the declaration thai somewhere  the education has failed.  The method lhat must bc employed lo reach the goal in education becomes apparent as onc  studies the nature cf childhood.  Hitherto in education two ideas  have received enthusiastic support from maif^' teachers. One,  thai the child has at birth in  him till lhat hc ever will have,  and that therefore thc. business  of education is simply to develop or train what nature has  planted wilhin the being. The  other idea is that, in education,  thc individual is simply passive  and acts "only in response to  stimuli from environment. Here  all-yoiHiave-lo-do4s=to=improv&  the environment to get lhc desired results.  II is nol a I all likely cither of  these views will much longci^ bc  acceptable'.to the greater body  of educators. Slowly but surely  modern pedagogy is coming to  an acceptance of tbe view that  "the individual is a self-active  unif fashioned by the forces of  organic evolution; lhat is. the  individual has been developed  as'a member of a group, and  thc environment'to which he  has had'.; to adapt himself lias  been largely an environment of  his fellow beings." -All action  necessarily springs from within, but.lhc.direction of ils activity is determined in a* large  measure by the nature of lhc environment  Therefore, to realize thc goal  of education, lhc unfoldment of  personality, the educator seeks  to discover (first the innate tendencies and potentialities of the  child nature, and Ihen proceeds  .in obedience to the fundamental  laws of psycholgy to provide the  proper environment. Naturally  such a course of action would  require sweeping changes both  in courses of study and methods  employed to those in vogue aV  present Certainly the emphasis,  woluld be upon the unfolding  personality rather than upon  the vocation of life.
