Returned Man il is good for the communitv, and1  ?10.00 for GO  clays,  THURSDAY. SEPT. 9. 1920  That Costly Transitory Period  I low regrettable il is that we havc no defined,  established system of towm planning and building, evolved from the experience oi* other towns,  by which the pitfalls may bc avoided and much  costly experiment made unnecessary. Every  lown has to grow by its mistakes. Much as with  thc individual, it will nol profit by lhc mistakes  of others. In most Western towns the,greatest  blunder that wc fall into is in llie matter of sidewalks.     Because   they   are    believed   to   bc  land at Camp Lister  The work is done by  caterpillar    tractor,  slun,ips at once  e hundred acres  ! The cosl of clearing thc  is said to be $lf)0 an acre,  a monster 7<">-horsepo\vcr  which hooks on to three or four  and makes easy work of it. Thrc  havc been cleared in thc Creston trad and Returned Men arc being placed on the land twenty  acres to thc family. As Creston is a choice fruit  district, il is es I'i ma ted lhal twenty acres will be  ample for the average Returned ?vla'n and his  family to handle.

Enderby fell into thc old error, ycars ago-    It  now  has  somc  forty  miles   of  plank  sidewalk  ^ t'o keep up, much of which is actually beyond the  up-kecp stage and' should bc replaced. The  original cost of this walk, spread over a term of  years, may not havc bcen felt al" the time But  what had wc after it was down? Very  was more a source of "expense than a  proud of.

The amouni done thus- far has demonstrated that  thc cost of laying is not so great as the cost o'f  laying the ordinary plank .walk, and then we  have a walk that grows better each season il is  used and on which there 'will be no repairs lo  speak of made necessary b\r. lhc changing seasons  Vis is the case with plank walks.. If we carry oul  llie plan suggested . Iry Mayor JBarnes we shall  havc the whole town sidcwalkcd. with gravel in  a few seasons. The exact cost of the gravel as  compared with plank walks has not been arrived  at, but. from figures now on hand it would appear tht. t lhere is a big saving in the use of gravel  as compared with plank, without the necessary  annual expense for upkeep-  lo believe lhc report lhal the oil cphi-  wlicn thcy advanced thc price of oil  the money,  ���������������������������er  ich  l-  Oil  s  Bureau, has a surplus' of $507 -a share.

'���������������������������  ; In the special order issued to the  Canadian troops on March 27, 191S,  General Sir Arthur Currie wrote:  "To those who will fall I say, 'You  will not die but step into immortality  ���������������������������r-your names will be revered forever  and ever by your grateful country,  and God will take you unto Himself."  The pledge thus given is being  faithfully fulfilled in relation to employees of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company by the placing or  bronze memorial tablets at o<er a  score of Its principal offices and  stations. Furthermore iwo imposing  bronze statuary groups have been designed for the great C.P.R. Stations  at Montreal and Winnipeg to stand-  forever as tribute to the heroism a:.d  self-sacrifice, of C.P.R. men who d:ed  in .the cause of freedom- Far-i'lung  and scattered are Iheir graves, but  single was their spirit and their  ideal, the service of uieir country.  -Out of 11,602 employees who were  reported as joining tlie Forces, l,oy">,  or nearly ten per cent paid tlie su-.  preme sacrifice. These came Iioli  ' every rank of the, company, from  every department, and u:ey served  by air. land and sea���������������������������faithful .unto  death.  The  bronze    tablet,    replicas    oi.  which will be placed at the principal*  railway centres in each province of  Canada, and also in London, Liver- .  pool  and' the  Orient.,  has  been  do-  signed by Mr. Archibald  Pearce, of  the Chief Engineer's. Department of  the company, and. is being engraved  at  Worcestershire,  England,  by   the  Bromsgrove Guild and Applied Arts.  The tablet depicts anadvancingarmy  of infantry, calvalry, artiilcry. :euy-.  plies,- munitions, tanks anu  railway  - transport flanked on either side by a  warship  and   a  C.P.O.S.   liner   with  aeroplanes flying overhead.
