I Kf~J&  IwoConferences of  Women's Institutes  Two conferences that will attract  a great deal of atteution from the  women of British Columbia will  he-held this month by the Women's  Institutes of British Columbia. The  first of these was held at Penticton  on September 6 and 7, and delegates  from the Women's Institutes of the  Okanagan district were present.  . Many interesting eubjects were  chosen for the addresses, and the  discussion which followed proved of  great interest.' Mrs. H. H.

Hon.   Ernest    Miller     expressed  pleasure at again being able   to  ad  dress a Grand   Forks audience.    He  -    - spoke tor over an hour,   and  nearly  all ot that time was taken up in   le-  '--      viewing   the   plugging cases in the  Vancouver bye election.   It had not  been his intention, he said, to bring  thidbutijeei up during tbe campaign,  but  as Messrs   Brewster and   Mac  dun-ild, during their r cent   visit   to  this city, had   dealt   with   tbis subject in a manner that  cast  defamation upon the Conseraiive party and  defended the action of tbe  Liberals  involved in   tbis  nefarious outrage,  he felt called upon  to  give his version of the investigation.    He  dealt  vviih   the   plugging   outrages along  the lines of the reports of tbe investigation  printed  in   the  coast Conservative preae, but many new facts  and details in connection   with   tbe  case.

A  lantern lecture " entitled "Industrial  Vocational Training" was given at  the efcfeu'ing-'scirsion of:the . fir.^t- day  by John Kyje, of the British Col-  lumbia department of education,  and on'the following morning Dr.  McGregor spoke on "Preventable  Ailments During School Life," and  following this Mrs. J. H. Miller, of  Vernon, gave an address on "Women's Part in Reconstruction Aftei  tbe War."  Many other subjects of interest  were taken up by the delegates, and  in addition to the subjects on the  program, there were many informal  discussions.  Mrs. VV. V. Davies, Chilliwack,  becrerary to the advisory board of  Wamen's Institutes, was present at  lhe Penticton conferf-nce to assist  any of the deleg-ites in finding a so  lution to tbe problems that puzzled  them in the carrying out of the  work of their institutes.

An Exceptional Day's Work  There was a lull in the conversation of the little group gathered  round tbe stove in the centre grocery as Hank Parsons concluded hiB  tale of the great results he had accomplished in fence buslding. It  was clear that everyone was deeply  imprefcsed by the story, for silence  is to the soap box orator what applause is to the politician.  Then an old man known as "Old  Charlie" broke the silence.  "Wal, that tbar was some fenc  in'���������leastwise for these days," he  remarked. "But let me tell ye that  if ye want to know about fence  makin', ye want to ask some of us  old fellers. Why, back iu '67, when  me and Bill Potter was a-workin' fer  the railroad, the bos3 sent us out  one morning to build a four-board  fence along both sides of the right of  way, and sir, by quittin'time that  night we had make so much fence  that it took us three whole days to  walk back where we started  from."

AI Prairie  Home,    Thomas    Greenway's    hours  were spent when absence from political activity permitted him to hie away  from the din of tlic ���������turbulent .waves  of that ever restless sea of Manitoba  politics.  ,As  a  breeder  of  Shorthorn  cattle,  the name of Grcenway was associated  with the highest grades; from Maine  to  southern  States,  thc  strain   ,from  Prairie Home has been dispersed. In  thc liorsc marts of the Old World, he  was a frequent purchaser; no impedi  Duped the Germans  How Russian Prisoners Fooled a German Guard  Thc vast system of Giftman officialdom, can be, and sometimes is, very  cjsily fooled and humiliated.

From a political standpoint Thomas  Grcenway was .1 unique figure. Even  when  his  government  was   relegated  into thc shades of opposition, the once  Premier continued as in former clays  to  steadfastly guard  the  interests of  Manitoba.      Within    the    Legislative  Chamber at Kennedy street, he wasn't  prone to assume bombastic    attitude  against those v.ith whom he differed  concerning    issues.    His   convictions  never faltered between two opinions;  as an  exponent of Manitoba's  rights,  Grecnway stood in the foremost rank.  His after career as a member of the  Railway  Commission,     was    marked  with     an   advocacy     upholding     thc  tenets of citizenship against iron heel  i ...  enhagen genuine entertainment.  Some Russian prisoners were working on a farm, and,found out that their  guards were stronger and more .watchful than those they had previously  encountered..But one of thc Russians,  with linguistic gifts, an imagination,  and plenty of cool nerve, gradually  evolved a plan which was successful.  Thc young Russian studied thc language of his captors with ardour, and  quickly became able to bellow out in  true Prussian style the words of command used    by thc    officers    of thc  guard.    He also studied Prussian methods,   the   times   of  changing  guard,  and so forth.   Then in the inky blackness of one early morning, he marched  his carefully coached company of com  rades towards the border, just at thc  point where and when the guard were  anticipating the arrival of their relief.  Thc Russians marched in military formation, and in the darkness it could  not be noticed that the rifles on the  evidenced by their rings, ..���������a aiayj  enabled officers of the Carnegie In-  st'tutc to draw a rainfall curve for  3,000 years. Thc curves agree fairly  well and show thai the climate-has  been pulsatory ihroughoul this long  term, with periods" of rainy seasons.  Both curves indicate- that the one  thousand years before Christ, were  much wetter than at later periods.  'At the beginning of thc nineteenth  century occurred many cold, wet  summers. The years 1812 -and 1816  were especially marked by a great de-  pr'ssion of .eniperature in Canada  V"d,tllc Northern United States; and  1816 was afterwards known as the  year without a summer.

They-seldom recog-*  iiize thc fact that thin blood is thc  cause of thc trouble, but it is. in  fact thin, impure blood is thc most  common cause of stomach trouble; it  affects the digestion, very quickly.  The glands that furnish thc digestive  fluid are diminished in their activity;/  thc stomach muscles arc weakened,  and there is a loss of nerve force. In  this stale of health nothing will more  quickly restore the appetite, the digestion.^ and normal nutrition than  good, rich, red blood. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills act directly on thc blood,  making it rich and red, and this enriched blood strengthens weak nerves,  stimulates tired muscles and awakens  the norma! activity of thc glands that  supply the digestive fluids. The first  sign of improving health is an improved appetite, and soon the effect of  these blood-making pills is evident  throughout thc system.

Mj- food seemed to turn  sour as soon as I ate it, and I would  turn so deathly sick lhat sometimes  I would fall on thc floor after vomiting. I" tried a lot of home remedies,  but they did not-help me. Then I  went to a doctor who gave me some  powders, but they seemed actually to  make mc worse instead of .belter.  This went on for nearly two months  ancl by that time my stomach was in  such a weak state that I could not  keep down a drink of water, and I  was wasted to a skeleton and felt that  life was not worth living. I was not  married al this lime and one Sunday  evening on thc way to church with  my intended husband I was taken  with a bad spell on the street. He  look me to a drug store where thc  clerk fixed up something le lake, and  mv intended got inc a box of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. By~thc end of  the first week I could feel sonic improvement from the use of thc Pills,  and I gladly continued taking them  until every symptom of the trouble  was gone, ancl I was again enjoj-ing  the best of health, These Pills arc now  my standby ancl I tel! all my friends  what ihey did for mc."  You can get Dr. Williams' _ Pink  Pills from anj- dealer iu medicine or  by mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes  for $2.50 from Thc Dr. Williams'  Medicine  Co.,   Brockvillc,   Ont.  For Agricultural Workers  American Library Association Devising New Service for Dissemination of Agricultural  Information  A scheme to organize the dissemination of agricultural information  throughout thc country so that all thc  people ma j' learn of all the research  claj.a being published 'for them in thc  form of bulletins, periodicals etc., is  the big problem that is engrossing the.  attention of thc agricultural section of  thc American Library Association  now in session at Asbury Park.  It is proposed not only to compile  ancl keep up-to-date a* reference guide  to all the current official agricultural  bulletins in the United States, bvit to  include scientific ancl popular journaft  dealing ith thc problem of agriculture.  Thc official publications of the agricultural departments in foreign countries and thc leading scientific journal abroad will be included in the service.  Thc references arc to bc printed  in thc form of a book to take- thc  place of thc clumsy and expensive  card catalogue so thai the busy research worker can carry it home with  him. Thc movement lias back of it  the most prominent research workers  ir. the experiment stations ancl the  leading professors in thc agricultural  colleges.  Thc rend::infe of lliis bibliographical service will herald a new day in  thc advance of agricultural work in  America. Thousands of invaluable  bullitens arc issued by state ancl federal research workers by stale boards  ancl agricultural associations, all of  which arc free and would help the  poor farmer if he could only find out  about them, but thej- accumulate so  rapidly and ire issued through so  many diverse agencies lhat thc most  helpful publications are soon buried  past the .hope of any rcsurrcc.ion.  This is thc vast treasure trove that  the new bibliographical service is designed to open up to the people.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 19L6  Undoubtedly every male  person over  the  age of twenty-one years has by this time made  up his mind how to vote  next Thursday.    If  there any who have not yet arrived  at this  decision, they will be given lots of opportunities' to do so next week, as political meetings  will probably be held every  evening  between  Monday and election day.    There has   never  been a previous election in the history of  the  province   when  the issues   involved were so  thoroughly discussed and widely disseminated  as they_ have been in  the  present  campaign,  and the elector who can not vote intelligently  next Thursday requires  an  elementary education rather than any instructions From  this  journal.  A public meeting will be held in.the Grand  Forks opera house on Monday evening, September ] 1, in the interest of the Liberal candidate. The speakers will be David Whiteside,  candidate fur New Westminster; J. E. Thompson, Liberal candidate for Grand Forks riding, and others. The chair will be taken at'  8 p.m. sharp. The opposition' candidate will  be given an opportunity to speak,, and" seats  will be reserved for the ladies.  Perhaps the most widely  advertised  issue  in the campaign is the Prohibition Act.    This  has been   so  persistently ventilated, pro and  con, that any further arguments for or against  it would merely be a repetition of what   has  already been said.    We have already made up  our mind how to  vote  on  this question, and  we take it for granted that everybody else has  done likewise.    Were we ordained to preach,  we believe we could preach a very good sermon on this subject���������but a preacher  is  paid  for  preaching, while we are occasionally paid  for printing the news.  To Teach Beekeeping to Returned Soldiers  Under the direction   of   William Hugh, secretary of  the  Beekeepers'   Association of   British Columbia, the  returned soldiers living  at  the   Military  Convalescent  Home  at  Esquimau   will   take   up    the ��������� interesting  study   of apiculture.  .The soldiers are taking up many  interesting subjects in    the   various    branches of agriculture, and it is   with  the. -idea   of   giving   them   elementary   training   in   such   subjects   as their present  condirions and surroundings  allow, that  this   work  is  being   done    The British   Columbia   department    of  agriculture   fias   already   placed   the   services of many  of the trained agriculturists   of   the   department at  the  disposal   of   the  men at  the   home, and  fnftheir  development   will  be made from time to time.

No other Boundary paper can give  advertisers this guarantee.  Do not forget, when you go to the polls on  Thursday, that you are entitled to cast three  ballots���������one for your favorite candidate, one  for the Prohibition Act, and another for the  woman's suffrage referendum. By all means  do not forget to vote in favor of the latter  proposition. The ladies would be surprised if  it should cany, ancl nothing looks prettier  than a woman who thinks she is surprised  wli������n she isn't surprised. Speaking more  seriously, however, we sincerely hope the referendum will be adopted, because we believe  that the ladies have as right to have a voice  in the government as the men.  Tlie orchardists of valley should take more  interest in the Co-ope.iative Growers' association. It is essential to the success of the industry that a strong marketing association is  maintained here. By the growers selling independently now, they weaken the organization, and even though they should make a  small monetary gain, they will lose in  the end, because if the association should  prove a failure prices would immediately drop  thereafter.

Dear Sir:���������As one of the issues to  be decided at the forthcoming provincial elections is the prohibition  question, would it not be well for  the voters of Grand Forks,'who are  property owners, to eonsider what  this law will mean directly to them,  should it receive the endorsement of  the electors of the province.  In this city there are at present  seven licensed hotels (not bars), the  owners of which have spent considerable money in the improve  ment of their respective establish-  mants in order to make the accommodations satisfactory to their patrons, and also to comply wiih the  provisions of the Provincial Liquor  License Act, which is stated by the  highest authorities to be the most  stringent liquor act of any province  in the Dominion.  Let us consider, for instence, the  financial loss to the city if these establishments are closed up. Tbe  municipality receives $500 a year  from each and every hotd inside the'  corporation for the permission to  sell liquor. In addition the taxes  are $285, school taxes $80, and water and light, for the year $480.  These figures were supplied me for  one of the hotels in the city, which  is not the largest, and may well be  accepted as the average amount paid  into the city' office. They total  $1,545 for each hotel for the year,  or $10,815 for the seven establishments which are at present operating within the municipality. .  Mr. Voter, if you are a property  owner, just stop for one moment  and figure up what the cutting off-  of this revenue will mean to you  personally. Ratepayers are already  complaining of the high rate of  taxation; but what would it be it  this extra burden of $10,815, which  has to be raised in order to carry on  tbe work of the municipality of  Grand Forks, is placed upon the  shoulders of the property owners  of this^sity?  Every ratepayer is, or should be,  working for the reduction of taxation. If he votes for the prohibition act, which does not prohibit,  by the way, but simply, takes away  from the licensed hotels the right to  sell liquor, he is voting additional  taxes upon his own property.  Every fair minded citizen of  Grand Forks will do well to consider  all sides of the proposed prohibition  act, and if he is fair towards his^own  interests he will vote agaiust prohi  bition and the unrestricted im porta  tion of intoxicating liquor into the  province, with its loss of revenue to  the municipality and the individual,  and vote for the government regulated liquor traffic as it is in force,  in British Columbia at the present  time.

Economical, Social and   Educational  Development Has Changed the  Status of the Farmer  Every four years the farmer vote is  counted on a speculative basis by the  leaders of thc contending- political  parties. They vary and conflict for  the reason that they are based largely  upon guess work, stale census statistics and a hit-or-miss conception of  what a farmer is or is not.  In estimating the farmer vote en  masse it has been thc custom to include all males of voting age. in thc  hamlets, villages and towns that arc  so-called -agricultural centres. It takes  in the banker-farmers, the lawyer-  farmers, the doctor-farmers, the retired farmers, tlie merchant-farmers,  thc merchants who sell more or less  exclusively to farmers; it embraces  thc drifting multitude of farm hands  and tenant farmers, the loafers and  ne'er-do-wells of the towns and villages; and in lhe enfranchised states  it now includes the women farmers  ancl the farmers' wives.  It is a vast conglomerate total, with  interests as divergent ancl to a considerable extent as conflicting as are  the interests of those who- dwell in  cities. Economic, social and educational development in the past decade has practically 'de-rubenized"  thc "rube vote," as politicians were  fond of referring to it in thc not so  distant past.���������Country Gentleman.  ��������� Worms in children work havoc.

Community Intelligence  In large cities tho death rate from  infectious disease has made a wonderful drop in the last fifteen years.  City dwellers are patting themselves  on thc back and pointing rather  scornfully to their country cousins  who have had no such improvement.  They arc saying now that all the  typhoid fever conies from the country, reaching the city only when some  vacationist-brings it back or a dairyman carries it along his route.  In a measure their position is warranted, but it is not because of the  superior acumen of the city man or  the inferior intelligence of his country neighbor. It is simply because  cities have been compelled lo have  boards of health, which have insisted  upon water filtration plants, upon  sanitation in all dwellings upon medical inspection of school children,  upon sanitary disposal of waste and a  score of other things against which  the city man often protests, but to  which  he  necessarily  submits.  The remedy for country folk is to  allow community intelligence to prevail over personal prejudice, and likewise to organize for good health.  The best-goal to work for is a full-1  time county health officer.���������The Ooun  a-v Gentleman.
