Faced with tbe overwhelming tasks of po.st.
war national rehabilitation,the Liberal government under Premier Mackenzie King, has
given the people of Canada an accounting of
which any administration might well be proud
Election camaigns, from tbe government
side, are always comparable to al'manage-
ment's periodical report to its board of directors. During the federal campaign now draw
ing to a close it has been brought home to the
electorate ehat'Liberalism has wrought veri
table wonders for an overburdened Canada.
The national dollar is slightly above par in
New York. Production has increased greatly. Taxation has been held to a minimum.
The veterans of the great war have been cared
for better than in any other country Prudent
immigration has had every encouragement and
fir years it has been appaaent that a strong
nind was at the helm.
From all sections of Caneda come reports
tiat Premier King's past record and proposed
ulicies are approved by the voters, and it be
o >mes more and more evident that the Lib
rcral leader will be given a fair working ma-
j irity in the new house. Meighen and Toryism are not for Canada during these important
tion to Ottawa. Premier King's speaking tour
of the province was a veritable triumph. JMr.
Meighen's efforts to convert the electorate to
Toryism failed dismally, and even strong sap-
porters of tho opposition leader approve of
his plan to spend the rest of tbe campaign io
sections of tbe country more tolerant of his
principles than is the west.
Notes • Notions • Notables
Canada has a whole has accepted Premier
King's statement that only through the full
development of the west can the whole Dominion prosper. He has done more to unite
all sections of Canada tban any other prime
miaister. Even the eastern financial leaders,
s ) long ignorant of and blind to tbe needs and
o portunities of tbe west, are now wbole-
li  irtedly supporting the Liberal leader.
Hon. Mackenzie King on his recent trip to
th.- coast, realized, be saidt as never before the
part which the west is destined to play in tbe
unbuilding of the Dominion, ail hs has
brought home to tbe financiers of the east
tint only through fair treatment of the prairie
provinces and British Columbia can the western sections of Canada prosper.
Thus a new light has been thrown upon the
question of Canadian development. The prairie provinces will develop rapidly under a
p >licy of equal frieght rates, while the almost
i exhaustible resources of the Pacific province
will be found a source of wealth which will
I'laoe Canada in the forefront of natious.
Liberalism is fast working the change.
At a chateau where be was recently a guest
a certain Parisian who does not approve of
the boyish appearance of the modern young
girl was approached by a lady guest. "You
have two childaen, I believe, monsieur," said
she. "Are they boys or girls?" "Madame,"
said be earnestly. "I not know. In 19201 bad
a boy of twelve and a girl of fourteen. But.
now I am not sure. I believe tbey are botb
boys. At all events you that it is quite impossible for me tell which is the buy and -which
is the^girl."
Apiculture, of beekeeping, is one of the few
branches of agriculture that does not tend to
exhaust tbe soil.   Tbe account of the honey
therefore does not include the usual item,
"cost of fertilizer."   The nectar produced in
the flowers is wasted unless gathered by bees
or similar insects. It has been conservatively
estimated tbat not over one-tenth of all the
nectar produced is actually harvnsted.   The
study of the honey bee and beekeeping is becoming more popnlar, and to satisfy those desirous  of knowing more about this subjeot.
short courses are being offered in several of
the leading schools and colleges, among them
Columbia university.   Many people  in the
suburbs can not go in for poultry raising, gar
dening, etc., because of lack of space.   For
them a few hives of bees should afford an in
teresting and remunerative euterprise.

Poems From Other Lands
Fly, lays of mine, bnt not to any clime
Whsre happiness and light and love prevail,
But seek the spots where woe aod ill and crime
Leave as they pass a noisome serpent-trail.
Fly, lays of mine, but not to the ether bine,
Where golden sparks illume the heavenly sphere,
But seek the depths where nothing that ie true
Relievos the eye nr glads a listening ear.
Fly, lays of mine, but not to fruitful ploins,
Where spring the harvests by God's benisou,
But seek the deserts wbere for needed rains
Both prayers and curses rise in unison.
Fly, lays of mine, but uot to riotous balls,
Where dancing sylphs supply veloptuous songs,
But seek the huts where pestilence appals,
And death completes tbe round of human wrongs.
Fly, lays of mine, but not to happy wives,
Whose days are one unending flow of bliss,
But seek the maidens whose unfruitfnl lives
Have known os yet no lover's passionate kiss.
Fly, luys of mine, but like the nightingales,
Whose liquid likings charm away the night,
Reveal iu song the sweets ef summer's gales,
Of lover's pleadings and of love's delight.
And tell my lady, when your quests are o'er,
That I, away from her, my heart's desire,
Long for the blissful hour when 1 shall pour
Down at her feet a love surcharged with Are.

Put your trust in men who believe in the West's future—men
who in Canada's darkest hour held out hope—men who believed
in developing the West.
Under -almost insurmountable
difficulties, Canada faces the world
today on the wave of industrial prosperity. She has met every debt on its
due date to her foreign creditors--
her dollar is the highest in the world.
And the West flourishes. In the last
four years, since Mackenzie King
took die helm at Ottawa, the West's
port, Vancouver, has shown greater
industrial development than in all
her previous history.

This in the face of the cries of ruination said; foreclosure from Meighen
and Stevens in 1921. This in the face
of the repudiation of Mr. Meighen

And more than ever in the history of
the West does the Weft need friends

crefully considered in new legitla-
I am offering myself as tbe Lib.
eral candidate in the Federal Election to be beld on October 29th.
This I am doing in tbe interests of
tbe people of Yale, so that they may
bave a direct Representative in tbe
Government, whioh will De Liberal.
I have, during my residence in
B. O, taken an active interest in
executive capacity in tbe following:
Farmers'  and Fruit Growers'
Boards of Trade.
Irrigation Matters.
Municipal and  School   Board
Representative   of   exnservice
men and dependents.
My responsibilities, in tbe above
capacities, bave brought me very
directly in contaot with the needs of
tbe district and   tbe welfare of tbe
people.   My record in tbe discharge
of these duties is open to all.   I am
oow  asking you, by  your vote, to
send me to Ottawa that  I my  ad
vaooe  and   protect  your interests
You need direct Government rep
reeentation for tbe following.reasons:
1. Should aby change be contemplated, you Bhould have a represent
taiive with a voice io tbe making of
tbat legislation, and not io opposi"
tion after it is made.
2. Witb the increased production
of farm products and tbe opening
up of new marketing channels, the
cold storage and other marketing
facilities provided by the Liberal
Government, should be encouraged
and not opposed.
3. Witb tbe increased activity in
the mining and metal trade, the in.
terests of the people in tbe Sjuthern
part of  Yale in particular must be
4. Tbat Labor, wbich ie fast be»
ooming a basic faotor as a result of
the increased activity in mining,
farming, railroading, etc., must have
its future interests safeguarded by
legislation by one known to be sympathetic.
5. The handicap under wbicb we
have been laboring as producers as a result of unfair railway
rates, will need every ounce of energy from the producers' representa
tive, in opposition to tbe large
financial interests.
6. Those wbo are suffering from
war disabilities and the dependents
of those who did not return, deserve
a champion of their interests in tbe
Parliament of Canada during their
shorteniug years.
7. Sectionalism, so rampant in
in Canada today, must be replaced
by tbat great Canadian spirit ot
Unity handed down to us by tbe
Fathers of Confederation. That
spirit, which so many of Canada's
best manhood gave heir lives for on
the fieldof battle, must' be perpetuated in Canada, as part of tbe British Commonwealth of Nations.
I am offering myself to do my
part in leading this great country to
its destined goal, where there sball
be no playing class upon class, no
race, no creed, no East, no West,but
Canada only, whose sons and daugh
ters sball live and work together, so
that peace and contentment may be
our lot at home and Honour and
Goodwill accompany us abroad.
You oan show your faith in' Canada by electing on October 29th ao

Read the following excerpt from! an unsolicited letter to the
Liberal Candidate for Yale, Col. C. E. Edgett, D.S.O.I
"Was pleased to see that you were given the Liberal nomination for
Yale, more especially for the sole reason that you are of the character
and calibre of a man that we require at Ottawa. It is unfortnnate that
all parties have a certain following of the species known as 'barnacles,'
who ai-e either Liberals or Conservatives simply for what theyjean secure
from the party which may be in power during the time of his or hef
promotion of their own particular interests. With them Canada is their
last thought—it is all self. While the cabiuet of any party are high
class men, they are besieged and worried from every angle by those
seeking financial and political prestige at the expense of the state.
This will have to stop In the remaking of Cauada in a new and virile
Liberal party. I Jiave the utmost confidence that you will be a first
olass officer who will take charge of an advance party and put the
enemy to confusion.
-'•Please understand that 1 am not criticizing those who are now in
control, but Parliament must be strengthened through the addition
of strong and fearless men who are not afraid to call a spade a spade
and tell the truth to the people of Canada. Men who will s'tand or fall
upon a principle are needed.    Good luck to you!"
This letter contained a generous contribution to Col. C. E.
EdVett's campaign fund.
