There is  a rare chance for- the school  boys-and girls-to win valuable  prizes, in a competition which  will be fair to each competitor.  facts of the matter.  I am a naturalized Canadian  citizen. I was born in Odessa,  Russia, on May 17th, 1862, and  my father and mother were  both born in Russia. My grandfather was born in Antwerp,  Belgium.  1 came to Canada in 1892, arriving at Rcgina, Sask., on April  22nd, 1892. In May, 1892, I took  up lands under the Dominion  Homestead Laws. Shortly afterwards 1 took out my naturalization papers at Qu'Appelle,  Sask., and am entitled to the  full privileges and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship.  All of my sons who are living,  here were born in Canada.  Four years ago I moved from  Saskatchewan to Dewdney, in  the province of British Columbia, and lived there until last  month, when I moved to Ender"  by. I moved to this district as  my doctor advised me to come  lo a dry climate. ������������������  In connection with an exchange of properties which I  made with JMr. W. E.^ Banton,  and Mr. Dobson avIio formerly  lived at Enderby, B. C, I secured 60 acres of land near Grindrod, B. C._ Upon inspecting this  property I found that it was not  thc kind of place I wanted for  a home. I accordingly purchased a small piece of land and  home from Mr. T. E. French,  as I wanted a placecncar town  and close to a good school. At  the time I purchased this property I was told that I- could get  oossession of it in a few weeks.  Mv son-in-law who came here  with mevwpurchased- the-adjoining home.  When my car of goods arrived I did not-have room to place  all the things in the place my  son-in-law had purchased. I:  then received permission from  Mr. Kent to place my automobile and hay oh his place, being  the property I had purchased  from Mr. French. Puring the  four years J" have heen in JJ.'C.  and the twenty-eight years f  have heen in Canada, f have  never had any trouhle of any  kind, and1 have always heen.  considered a good'citizen and a  loyal Canadian, f MW refer  you to Mr. William Branson,  member of the Provincial Parliament from the pewdney district, or to. any responsive person in the Pewdney district, or  in the Qu'Appelle district.  One, of my sons during the  recent-war served in the Canadian army.  The above facts-can pe verified hy searching the government records,.and, also by. Constables Johnson and Bailey, who  have investigated this matter.  All-^aslc-of=_the=people_of=this  not so large as if more canvass  ing had been done. As farm  ers in the Okanagan, we should  be thankful, he said, for our  conditions as compared with  those of other parts of the  world. Production in the valley had been greatly increased  not only in fruit but in mixed  farm produce. Securing markets for these was among the  problems of the future. He  referred very favorably to thc  efforts of Mr. H. W. Knight in  this direction in advocating the  construction of stockyards and  a cold storage plant at New  Westminster as aids in handling Uie surplus output from  this district. The farmers were  strongly urged to get together  and work together. He advocated the placing of an organizer in the field and closed by  congratulating Ithe members  and the community upon the  beneficial .results of a prosperous year.  The  report  of  the directors  showed that nine meetings had  been held    either    separate or  joint with the directors of the  Farmers'  Institute and  G.. W.  V. A.   Among the "matters dealt  with    were    contemplated purchases from the Vernon Fruit  Union at a rebate, the Chautauqua lecture by Mr. H. W. Wood,  Council of Agriculture, amalgamation,    university    extension  lectures, pruning classes, health  insurance ahd workmen's compensation.    Acting with the directors, of Armstrong and Lumby, the North Okanagan .District Association was formed,  the., first - in ...British. - Columbia.  The three locals then in the district have since been increased  to nine or ten.   The matter of  co-operative buying and selling  was taken up with the   Vernon  Fruit " Union   and negotiations  were carried on for some time,  hut not proving    satisfactory,  they were discontinued.   Upon  the invitation of the G. W. V. A.  representatives were appointed  to confer with them and others  interested in the opening of a  co-operative store for   Vernon  and its vicinity.  The result was  the organization of the   Okanagan Co-operative   Association,  limited, whose store was opened in Vernon in Pecemher last.  jXXXXXXXXXtCXXXXXXX  x     MARA NEWS NOTES     X  fc������������������    fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   fcr   *-r   mr   fcr  ss   i<i   sm   ss   ss   ss   ss   ss   ss   ss   ss   ss   rs   ss   ss  by's sixteenth Citv Council willi ,.

Simpson, avIio  for a number of years has been at thc helm of the  Kamloops   Standard-Sentinel,   is   resigning   that  position at the end of January.   JWe^lo not know  what "Dad" is going,to do "Avhen  he quits'  the  job at Kamloops.    Perhaps he is' preparing i'or  the Senate.   We hope not.   "Dad" Simpson is loo  good a newspaperman to go off and lose himself  in the cobwebs of*the Senate chamber. No, "Dad"  Avill not do tliat.    Maybe somebody lias left him'  a legacy.    We don't sec Iioav he is going .to. quit  the ncAvspaper business and stay quit unless he  has bcen so  favored.    Even   though    "Dad" did  make money in  tbe newspaper business.    Like  all in thc game, hc spent it as fast as he made it.  He is now closing a life of useful effort.    His  genial personality and undoubted ability havc enabled   him   to   accomplish   big   things   in   small  places.   F'rinstancc. when "Dad" Avas publishing  thc Cranbrook Herald ycars ago, one Avould have  thought Cranbrook the size of Vancouver to read  the  Herald.

Thev  would be considered had form today.   Thev were  big. and, as before stated, juicy.    "Dad"  musl  have had a big cellar under the Herald office. Pity  if is  that avc didn't know then  Avhat avc know-  now!    Well.

Because ol* the commercialization of spiritual-!  ism  by fake  mediums and persons folloAving it  as a business, the Avord long ago became a syn-':  onyin   for vulgar graft and  fakcism.

EGYPT AND SELF-DETERMINATION  A DEMONSTRATION  A number of Enderby Veterans Avent to a place  on the outskirts of tOAvn on Sunday and made a  demonstration. It Avas all done orderly and Avilli  good spirit, but' Avithal a determination that A\as  not to be mistaken. It seems that the Avholc  trouble arose out of thc failure of a properly  OAvner to observe, a verbal agreement by which  the piece of property Avas held by a tenant until  March, who sold thc property to another man  who had previously purchased thc property adjoining, Avith only a driveAvay be]lween.

The tenant Avas a relative of a boy  who Avent overseas and was killed in action. ��������������������������� No"l  being able to get redress for the wrong done him  from the owner of thc property or thepurchaser.  the tenant appealed lo the G.

So they decided to go in a body to the property in question  and definitely sIioav that thc tenant had rights  which had to be respected. They moved a carload of hay from one side of thc "roadway lo the  otber and let the new OAvner know tbat thev were  going to see that the tenant was alloAved lolivc in  peace until the expiry of his verbal lease.  The new owner happens to hc Gcrman or Russian, claiming 28 years' residence in Canada.

It is probable that the Avork and progress of the  consolidated school in Armstrong Avill be watched  with interest by many localities in the Interior,  and if the proposition proves successful here it  will not be long until many localities similarly  situated will quickly follow' the example set by  this municipality and city.

The deep music of 6 deerbound/s  voice came faintly down the wio|l,  shortly lt blended with the sharper  voice of a hunting Airedale. The  ecream of a hungry cougar Is not  more terrifying to the timid deer, of  the British Columbia coast than the  l>ay of the hounds on the trail.  When they hear it they get up and  go���������������������������straight for water.  The little spike buck, born a few  seasons before on the rugged,  forest-clad coast of the Pacific province lifted his head. His eyes and  his ears, his very pose displayed the  high tension of his taut nerves. He  looked into the forest of the tsland  on which he stood, and he saw nothing alarming. .He turned and stared  across the water toward Nelson Island. The only thing that caught  his eye that did not denote restful  nature it>. primitive grandeur was a  smudge of smoke that smeared the  horizon and showed that a C.P.I...  coasting steamer was outbound from  Powell River. Then the boom of thc  hound's voice rolled again across the  waters from Nelson Island. The  deer moved nervously, looked all  jound   J������������������saia���������������������������and  calmly  beat  his  h#ed  Ho   w  Island  Hardy Islgntf Is tbt eUj ot rtfuge  to Ml th* deer that know about it.  Three years ago it w������������������s food bunting grounds. To-day It it t������������������t>oo to  men with guns, anil bell poys, mi tbe  saying goes, If men witb both guns  and dogs appear. It is unlawful to  hunt deer with dogs Ip British Columbia, but lt Is still do������������������e In certain  districts, iu spite of law. Two years  ago. or perhaps slightly more than  that. Mr. C. J. Leyland of England  purchased Hardy Island, a fen of  land situated Just off Nelson Island  at the mouth of Jervis Inlet He  bought it to experiment with "British trees In the B.C. climate. There  were 2.500 acres of rich lands and  forests, and there was a food  orchard. He placed a watchman,  Tom Brazil, on the property and did  no more toward development, preferring to await the end of tbe war.  Brazil, a lover or animals, caught  two of tbe wild deer that frequently  swam to the island from tbe other  nearby    lands.      He    tuned    them.  Tbty to turn brought other wtlij  ones. Many of them had been run  to water by dogs and took refuge  en Hardy Island- There, seeing  bow intimate tar original tame pair  were with tbe man who controlled  tbe orchards where tbe luscious  apple* grew, the wild newcomer*  gradually grew intimate too. To-day.  a herd of thirty deer, most or them  born ia wildness, respond to the  voice of Tom Brazil when be calls.  Some of them will step forward  (rom the herd when called by name.  Tbey have no fear at all of man,  when on Hardy Island. Sometimes  tbey swim to otber parts of ihs  coast, aad range about a bit, but  they come back, often fagged from  some Herct run and swim.  Tom Brazil's herd is becoming a byword on the coast, but. no dog and  no man dare brave whar might hap������������������  pen should be try to bum on tha  Island of refuge. So the deer aro  fat, are bringing new little lives  Into the world, and are adding to  their numbers by recruit volunteers  from tbe wild ranges where such  safaty la not luwwu.���������������������������L.

W. Bcatty, K. C, President C. P. R.  The following Interesting extract  from an article by Mr. E. \V. Beatty,  president of -the C. P. R. -appeared  recently in the Montreal Gazette: ���������������������������  "So much for the manner in which  the transportation machinery of th"e  country is carrying out its obligations to the Canadian producer.1  Other aspects of thc transportation  problem are less satisfactory. There  are many people who look upon  Canadian Railways as custodians of  magic fortunes which cannot be exhausted. That bookkeeping should  be as simple and inexorable in its  tale of losses and vanished profits to  a railway as, it may be to a corner ���������������������������  grocer, is to these people unthinkable. It apparently does not occur  to thom that to no public is it more  Important than to. the Canadian public that the good reputation of its  railway' securities in the world of  thrift and investment should be carefully guarded. To" those, however,  ���������������������������who understand these things clearly  and who view  thc matter  from  the  standpoint of broad public interest,  it is at once'apparent that the Canadian public pays a very low rate for  the quality of service rendered, and  that a time is rapidly approaching  when, if Canadian railway securities  are not to be made less desirable to  investors than almost any other  kind of industrial security, railway  rates will either have to go up. or  railway operating costs go down.  Such persons recognize that it is not  because the situation of the railways  is an easy one that certain companies have been able to show net earnings���������������������������very low net earnings com-,  pared to the actual cash invested In  the industry���������������������������but because-la the past  the shareholders of such companies  have been, as they are to-day,  courageous persons willing to supply the means for constructive en-'  terprises in which no one but themselves had faith, and because, too,  their officers have been skilled, resourceful and loyal business men,  assisted by staffs filled with the  spirit of pride and devotion to tfcglr c  work. This, indeed, -~is" the thing  which has made it possible for Canada's railroads to function successfully during the war without making  anything like the demands that foreign roads���������������������������less efficient in serving  their community, yet earning the  same rates and paying the same  wages���������������������������have made up their public  exchequers. I do not believe that  this strain upon the railways and  this tendency to weaken the general  reputation, of Canadian Railway securities should continue. The servant, after all. Is worthy of his hire,  and railway capital is not less  worthy a servant than other forms  of capital whose earnings have not  been so consistently depressed.  "The net earnings during th������������������ war  years, of those companies which  showed net earnings, would have  been much lower had the Canadian  railroads been making expenditures  for maintenance which circumstances would have justified, but  which conditions prevented during  that period.^ These arrears have  now to be made up. During 1919  the Canadian Pacific ladd 70,000 tons  of steel rail. In place of, say. 2,-  000,000 ties, worth 44c in 1914. the  Canadian Pacific laid 4,434,000 ties  at 85c per tie. The sensational advance in the rate of railway wages  la well known. Further advance  may be necessary within the very  near future, as indicated by discussions in the United States. The price  of coal for locomotives was $3.09 in  1913. Now it is 54.77. The cost of  hauling an average train (freight or  passenger) one mile has risen from  $1,604 in 1913, to $2,494 in 1918. It .  is higher to-day. The operating expenses of one mile of line in 1915  were $4,152; in 1*918, $7,046. and today they are even greater. On tho  other hand, railway rates, taking all  classes of revenue together, have advanced scarcely 25 per cent. I venture to say no other industry in the  Dominion can show such moderation."
