The institute  hopes to complete arrangements for  a series of lectures by experts on  various subjects in connection with  general ranching .as applicable to .this  valley, especially", on dairying and  stock raising, horticulture and poultry raising.  Two important resolutions were  passed, viz, urging the department  of agriculture to appoint a horticnl  turist for this district, and also for  the establishment in the interior of  at least one magazine for explosives,  as under present arrangements it  from four to six weeks after the order is placed to secure stumpfng  powder.

Will Your District Win This Gun?  Dr. George Alexander Stuart Bell,  a retired surgeon from the British  navy, who has resided in this din  trict for the past ten or twelve years,  met instant death about 8 o'clock  Tuesday evening by. the accidental  discharge of his gun while he was  out deer huuting near his ranch, six  or seven miles from this city on the  North Fork.  Mr. Bell started out for a deer  hunt during the day. As he did not  return when it began to get dark, a  searching party composed of C.  Mills, Geo. Moen and Walter and S.  Evans, was organized snd started  out to find the missing hunter. They  had proceeded only a short distance  when they heard the report of a  gunshot, and hastening to the spot  they were horrified to find Dr. Bell  lying on, the ground dead,..with .the  greater'porfcidn of the upper part of  his head practically blown'off. The  supposition is, that he stumbled in  the dark, and that in falling his  gun was accidentally discharged.  His body was brought to this city  that night by S. Dicsmore.  Wednesday afternoon Coroner  Kingston held an inquest on the remains. The jury,'composed of W.  Patterson as foreman, C. V. Meggitt,  T. Symes, Al. Traunweiser, Wallace  Chalmsrs and L C. Odell, after lis  tenlng to evidence all afternoon, returned a verdict of accidental death.  The late Dr. Bell was between  fifty and sixty years of age. He  served as a surgeon in the British  navy until his retirement from the  service about a dozen years ago,  when became to Grand Forks, and  since that time has been engaged in  developing a ranch six miles north  of this city. All his relatives live  London, England. About six years  ago he married Miss Baker, of London, who survives him. Four small  children are also left fatherless. Dr.  Bell was a splendid citizen, and his  tragic desth is greatly lamented by  everybody in the community.  According to present arrangements, the funeral vvijl be held at 2  o'clock tomorrow afternoon from  Miller & Gardner's undertaking parlors.  the meeting, and the impression ap  pea red to prevail among those present that there is splendid sport  ahead for the coming winter.  Miles Barrett, who has been general foreman of the Granby smelter  in this city since it was first blown  in, left on Tuesday with his family  for Anyox, uhere it is pr*sumed  that a good position with the Granby company awaited him. Grand  Forks feels sorry to lose Mr. Barrett  and his family.  TO CARE FOR WOUNDED  Money   From  Victory  Loan   Will   Be  Used to fie-t'.'-tut-.lii-h  Soldiers.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET..  FKIDAY, NOVEMBER 14,. 1919  THE LOAN AND THE FARMER  In the present Victory loan campaign, now  in its last stage, no one class of the community can afford.to'sit back and leave the fate of  that flotation to the other classes. One class  which shows any symptoms of doing so is-the  greatest of all, the farming'community. At the  end of the first week's drive, the workers in all  parts of Canada reported that in the towns  and cities the people had for the most part  shown great enthusiasm and free-handedness  in the matter of subscriptions; but that only  one in sixty of the farming population had  bought this year's bonds.  It is impossible to believe that before- the  subscription sheets close on November 15th  the farmers will not have dissipated this reproach. The present Victory loau is a farmer's  loan in a very considerable degree. Certain  obligations which the government must meet  onstitute a first charge on the proceeds. The  ^capital to finance loans for the sale of Canadian foodstuffs to Great Britain and European  countries must be provided by the oversubscription. If this oversubscription is inadequate then the market will be curtailed; and  the farmer will get less for next year's crops.  That is as clear as sunlight to anyone who has  s tudied the facts. If the farmer wishes to secure for himself a good market next year he  must unhesitatingly support the Victory loan  with his cash. .  to trade in Europe which if we do not seize  them'now, will forever slip from our grasp.  These .opportunities''will fie of no avail if the  Canadian government is not placed in a "position to offer credits to the great number of new  customers that are willing to neal with her.  ''Unless she gets a big Working capital through  the present Victory loan credits must cease  and our war obligations will become an increasingly difficult burden to bear. Therefore  if there is any meaning in the .boast that this  century is to be Canada's ce'ntury, it must take  the form of more than words. Words must be  backed by the financial subscriptions to the  present Victory loan, a gilt-edged investment  that promises the highest rewards in national  prosperity.  ifz  MAKING THIS OUR GENTURY  If the twentieth century is to be Canada's  centnry, as so many public speakers have said,  then it must be by dint of enterprise which  will increase production from, year to year and  eagerly strike for new markets to buy the surplus of this production. That is the way to  make our war debt a light burden; and to enable Canada to assume her proper place in the  world.  Canadians will give Canada a definite setback in these lofty aims if they do not support  the 1919 Victory loan with heavy oversubscriptions. There are ehormons opportunities for us  The high cost of living is the greatest  material problem of our day. For the man with a  small income, it is a large-sized  menace; even  for the man with a comfortable income it is a  source of continual   worry.   The  phenomenal  rise in prices since 1914 is due to the  scarcity  of goods brought about by the  suspension  of  production  during the  war.    We  have also  wasted untold quantities of material  for war  purposes. This shortage and the waste^ must  be made good before the world can  be again  as prosperous as in 1914. Until they are made  good, it is useless  tp expect that prices will  materially decline or even  remain   stationary.  Recognizing this  fact,  many people  propose  that we get over the difficulty by increasing  wages, salaries and profits in the same ratio as  the advance in prices.   If this  were  possible,  the effect would be the same as reducing prices  to pre-war levels.   Ultimately this  may take  place, but certainly not soon.   The  "daylight  savers" realized that they could not get the  public to perform  every act of the day one  hour earlier than usual, so they innocently deluded us by advancing the clock.    It worked,  because there was no fundamental law against  ii.   But we can nqt cheat ourselves oyer the  cost of living in the\same manner. Increasiug  wages without augmenting production sends  up prices leaves real wages unimproved. What  does  the  higher cost of  living really mean?  Sweeping aside the camouflage of prices   expressed in currency, it means this:   That we  must now put forth greater effort and work  harder to obtain the same satisfactions. There  is no cure for it but economy and  increased  production.    It is not the nature of the average human  being  to economize in  what is  lightly come by, nor to work any harder than  is necessary  to obtain a comfortable  living.  Therefore, the high cost of living is  not only  natural, but necessary at the present time.  Let us face this blunt truth  bravely  and apply ourselves patiently to work and to save���������  the only remedy.  :=^  I  Looting After the Children's Eyes  Several weeks of long winter evenings are ahead of us. With tbe  use of artificial ligh i. it is a trying time for the eyes. If slight defects already exist, ������ dim or unsteady light will greatly aggravate  the situation. This is particularly true among children, whose vitality and power of resistance is much lower than grown ups. Inflamed lids, styes, headache and watery eyes are almost sure indications of some sort of eye trouble. If your child has trouble with  his eyes, bring him in and let us examine<his eyes.
