These, terms were taken clause
by clause and discussed with considerable animation, Aid, Elliott
opening'the debate by declaring
that for unlimited gall, it beat anything he had ever seen. The
clause relating'to the city constructing a race track was objected ■ to
by Aid. Ball, on the grounds' that
the city should not bind itself without knowing what expense should
be^incurred. jThe by-law h^d
been ltished-_through the council,
and he had hot'lu_Ltime to look
into the matter. ^ If he had under-
stood-theiby-law he. -would- never
have been in favor of it Replying
to^Ald: Ballr Mayor- DeHart-took
exception to the terms used" by
Mr. Ball, that the By-law Jiad been
tCPfhed through^ tl^e I coupcil. It

With a few| exceptions each
clause' was^strerioushAdbiected to
by one or other or the Aldermen,
and alterations and additions were
made amid-heated arguments.
' Objections to what was termed
by'some of the 'Aldernien, "a .one
sided agreement, were so strong,
that Mr. SutherlandJ stated that" if
the counciU, thought these things
so-bad, perhaps they would have'
iio objection to the, A'.' c. T. Association taking, it off their hands
again, '__ He 'proposed that this be
dbne)7'and ' the ^ city grant them
$4,000 out bf the A.7& T. Association'debentures, the association to
pay .the interest and sinking fund.
He was sure'a good .revenue was
to be obtained from these grounds.
7Nothing could be decided on at
that meeting, and the matter was
left to be considered by1 the
council. '>■     '
% Messrs, J. W. Jones, G. Rose and
H. "W." Raymer" appeared   as   a
Buckland who agreed to give a
right of way through' their property, at the back of the Bank building.
It was hoped that the council
would co-operate with the. Board
'of'Trade in giving the C.P.R. every
encouragement to place their
tracks here. Tbe council,promised
to give this^ matter their i prompt
and careful attention.
.The v dirty and unsanitary condition of the jail was* brought before the council .by Mr. Dilworth,
who found on1, inspection,' that it
was unfit to put pusoners in. Chief
Hidson had complained 'of the
matter before, but nothing at that
time was done.
The council authorized Mr. Hidson to employ,a man to clear out
and do ,what(was; necessary, to
place the building in a sanitary
The indifference of some of the
ratepayers to the notice in the
papers at an earlier date regarding
sanitary Boxes, and also to warnings by Mr. Hidson, met 'with
severe censure on the part of the
council, and Mr. Hidson ,was instructed to issue summons at his
discretion. The 'health law. was
there to be enforced, and if people*
would, fnot take proper< warning,
*hey musf expect the consequences.
" By-law 56 was reconsidered and
finally passed. Nothing further, in
the'way of business wastransacted,'
and the meeting adjourned, until
Wednesday, 1 7th March.
puuiicity committee appointed-
the .Board of Trade, to request the
council-to grant them the sum of
$500.00 for advertising purposes.
•.-The-value of advertising.,to the
city was beyond doubt, and up to
the'present had "been - undertaken
chiefly by. the different land com-
dpanieq in the district Mr. Jones
thought he'•'was n well within the
parkjn^saymgjhatat least 2,000
settlers naa come here during the
past two years, although the city
haH not taken much part in bringing} them here. It was pointed
out;that many of the neighboring
towns were spending large sums
in publicity schemes, and the Board,
of Trade of Kelowna did not; want
to be behind. In supporting Mr.
Jone8,'?Mr]'f RoseT-rriphasized :the
importance of an increasing" population from a financial point of
view. More settlere "woiild mean

provedi thua'iricre&.ing the rateable
value of the property. , He strongly advocated an aggressive advertising ppljcy, and urged that it was
to' the"'city!B best interests.i , Mr.
Raymer endorsed what had1 been
-'aiq by; ^Messrs. Jones and Rose
and hoped the council would give
the matter their'careful attention.

, At the meeting on Wednesday
night. a considerable' amount of
business was transacted,^ and ,the
Council continued their deliberations until'a very late hour. ".*'.. '
"^'Amongst' other matters it -was
decided that the city council-^hake
a'grant of $250 to the Kelowna
"- With respect to the application
of the.Board of Trade for a .grant
for advertising purposes, a motion
was passed assuring the, members
of the BoardJ of Trade that the
city council recognized the good
work being done by the publicity
committee, v and although , they
would gladly have responded to
their application for the $500, for
the purpose of advertising the city
and district, the council could not
see their way clear to grant • more
than-$250/in view of the heavy
present and prospective demands
upon the city treasury.
The Fire and-Waters Committee
was instructed to purchase at once'
all necessary equipment for the
use of the Fire 'Brigade. A room
was also !granted'" in* the Fire" Hall
for the* free",use of the Fire Brigade.
It was decided to enter into the
following" agreement ^between the

Cold Storage of Fruit
In consequence of certain rumours, which had been going
.round .with regard to the voting

Boyce;-Mr. ;D.,Leckie, Mr. R.

Mayor, Mr. F. R. E. DeHart. At

One of the leading fruit
journals in their issue for
March makes a: remark which
has a direct bearing on the
question of advertising which
is at present before the   City
] Council. " The world recognizes the value of a front foot
7 of real estate in the city, and it
recognizes the value of an acre
in the country, of a pig, a cow,
: 6r a horse, or any Mother article
of merchandise, but it ddes not
always  stop  to  think  of  the
.value of a life as an asset to a
community." Eyery new settler who comes to live in a district represents a certain money
value to each member of the
community.    He increases the
- business of the stores, the value
of all the land around him, and
benefits a hundred other interests in a direct or indirect
, That it pays a city to put
forth strenuous' efforts to increase the population by inducing settlers to locate there is
now generally recognized, and
the vigorous advertising  cam-
• paigns which' most - towns of
any pretentions are conducting
or preparing to conduct is evid-
. ence, too, that they are beginning to realize that it is not suffi-
• cient to leave the matter solely
to the resourses of private enterprise. The real estate firms
do their share, because they are
perhaps, the first to   benefit.
But where they gain one dol-
' lar from the permanent settlement of a good citizen, the city
as a whole will gain a hundred
The $500 which the Board
of Trade have asked the City
to contribute to assist in their
advertising efforts, is only.small
compared with what some-cities
with less natural advantages
than Kelowna'are spending in
_this_ work.lRegina^iient^ $3000
last year, .Saskatoon -$2000,
Revelstoke, $1000, and this
year Vernon has already voted
$500 for advertising purposes.
„The opportunity, too'/ which
it has at the .present moment
and one which comes to _ev?
towns, of following up the splendid successes at Spokane,
which have made the name of
Kelowna famous all 'over the
world, is too 'valuable to be
lost. And who should be better

Dear Siiy '7;-7
7 If you; will be" kind enough to
givejme'some space.in your, valuablepapei I will try to explain to
the public in general some reasons
why the Agricultural & Trades
Association did not pay their prize
money this year. It has been the
custom for the finance committee
to collect enough money to pay
for the sports, and leave the gate
receipts and the membership tickets, and also the government grant
to pay for the prizes. But this
year the subscription list did not
get around, and the money for the
sports was not collected. The
parties winning money outside of
the city wanted their money to go
home. 1 called the committee together and explained the situation,
and they thought it best to pay for
the sports and then go around and
raise the money for the prizes. I
called the directors' meeting and
they thought it better to try and
get the City Council to take it over,
and a committee was appointed
to wait on the City Council and
see what terms they could agree
upon. All this has caused some
delay, and is not through yet. I
notice that some of our citizens
would» pay themselves and let
those'outside who helped to make
the gate receipts, go without.
They don't like sports, at least they
don't like paying for them, but can
take a drive in the afternoon, on
the street where the price is low,
and drive quite easy.
In conclusion I might say that
all prize money will be paid, and
the Agricultural & Trades Association will be better than ever with
the new and'well selected Directors and President.

Scientific Surgerij.
Say, we've all heearn of the progress of
scientific surgery J—sech a9 switching  the
live ear off'n one man on to another?   But
thet ain't nuth'n to what  hes  been  done
over yonder.    Hear me!    Way up to New
Jamesopolis thar  was  a 'man—leastways
thar  was  two-thirds  of  a' man—of   the
name  of  William  S.  Slapson, es   hedn't
nary leg "and no more 'n one arm, in   con-
sekens of a  littie   misonderstanding   he'd
hed with a saw-mill, the   saw-mill   hevmg
the better of the  argyment  by  two  legs
and an arm.   Jest think of  the   posish   of
thet man!   JHe did'nt know, after the mill
hed finished with him, what it was to   hev
to go mushing round on his  legs  all   day
ontil he couldn't d{ag  one   foot  after  the
other—skursley.   And he hedn't  no  particular difficulty wuth mentioning in hiding
from his left hand what his right-was doing
—no, indeed !    All he hed to   do  was   to
lie   back  on ' his  patent  spring-buffered,
pneumatic-cushioned couch, and'draw the
dividends  from    his 'invested   insurance
money, and'to enjoy himself all  the time.
I'tell you William S. was es happy . a slug
in a pumpkin-patch, ontil  a   meddlesome
medical sharp came along, and got to work
on him with his latest scientific notions, to
persuade  him  what  a  considerable  im-
rrovement it would be ef he'^d  allow him
to build to him in   the  latest  style.'. And
William S. was fool enough to   listen, and
hanker after legs and a full  set of ;arms,
and_then_they started in to graft on to him.
Thar was a man from Pennsylvania traded
him a live leg  for  five   hundred   dollars,
and,   bimeby,  a   galoot   from   Nebrasky_
swopped   him   another  for  a  handsome
consideration; while a  fellow  down east
supplied him an arm 's he hedn't no  particular use for—being out  of   work at the
time and not wanting any—and the lot was
grafted  on  to  William S. one  after the
other.   Thet was whar the worry came in.
Of course  William   S.  didn't  know   his
Pennsylvania leg was addicted to  chronic
rheumatiz, any more than he   was  aware
thet his Nebrasky toes was  plaguey  subject to chilblains 's soon 's the winter set in,
or his down-east arm most alius broke out
pesky ,bad   with  eczema  ef   he tctched
certain kinds of food—leastways he didn't
know ontil he'd got finally hitched  up  to
his ne.w sections, and then the  circus  began.   Gosh I   You never seen sech 'a time
's William S.  hed  with   his  second-hand
limbs.   He'd most roast his   Pennsylvania
leg   on" account' of 'its   rheumatiz,   and
nat'rally, the fire fetched out his Nebrasky
chilblains and started 'em ,off aching like
fury, ontil he  had , to  take  some  special
diet for 'em, and the stuff flew straight  to
his down-east arm ' and  stirred   up  the
eczema ontil  it purty  ni_h" blazed.     Of
course . toon 's he  hunched  away  from
the fire to give his^Nebrasky  chilblains  a
chance, the, rheumatiz' started   in  again;
and, then, mebbe, he'd   try  some( patent
specific, for- the  Pennsylvania  rheumatiz,
and  it would   tetch   off   the   down-east
eczema wuss n ever.   What  with  wrestling with one or another of his new grafts,
he hedn't a blamed minute' left; to enjoy
hiiBelf, and from a happy contented pyty
it turned,him into the most peeyish.^can-

His Patienco and Skill In the Bag and
* Spear Trick.
Tbe feat known as the bag and spear
trick has been (onsidered one of tbe
greatest of tbe Hindoo magician's art
In this trick, says u writer, the Hindoo
fakir has bis assi_uut get into a sucis,
tbe mouth of which he (irmly secures,
aud then unceremoniously burls bis
helpless victim to the ground Without a sign of warning the fakir driveB
his spear through tbe center of the
After withdrawing his'weapon, upon
tbe point of wblcb no blood, stain appears, the fakir stands and gazes
dreamily over tbe heads of tbe gpecta-
tors. Tbe body within the bag flounders about as if in mortal agony. At
last, when tbe occupant is apparently
dead, the fakir ugain plunges his spear
into tbe motionless body. Tbe same
antics are repented. Then tbe fakir
releases his attendant from the bag,
and he steps out without a scratch
upon his body. ./     _
Although tbe trick is performed "with
till tbe carelessness imaginable. It calls
for more patience, skill and exactness
than any .of the so called black art
achievements From the time tbe at-,
K>ndant enters the bag both fakir and
assistant count every breath tbey take.
When a stated number of breaths have
been taken tbe fakir makes bis tbrust,
nnd tbe occupant in the bag is prepared to avoid it. Then tbe count begins again, and at tbe.proper time the
spear Is driven through the' bag- a
second time. In order to evade the
spear and make it appear to pass
through his body tbe assistant doubles
up in as small a form as possible. His
legs are drawn up close, with tbe chin
resting upon the knees and the arms
folded round the lower limbs -across
(he shins. When in this position, at
tbe fiftieth breath, tbe spear passes
under the attendant's arm. between
the abdomen and the thighs.
Tbe slightest miscalculation by either
the fa kit or his assistant would mean
a serious if uot u mortal wound for
one nnd an Unheard of disgrace for tbe
That fakir and attendant are able so
to train themselves to breathe In perfect unison while giving one of these
performances, when the slightest variation in time by either would be fatal.
Is certainly wonderful.'

Fortune Eaten by Rats.
Once a noted French beauty, the Countess de la Premiere was found unconscious
on Monday in a wretched room in the

plenty of money, but was noted for her
avarice, living the life of a miser, and
keeping her wealth in a cupboard in her
room.   #" ' ~   "" *

who were alarmed at not seeing the countess about as usual, entered the room they
found her j nearly dead from starvation,

The Church in the West.
' The Church of England has just celebrated the jubilee of its establishment in British Columbia. It was in 1859 that Bishop
Hills sailed from this country to take up
the charge., that he held until 1892. On
his arrival he found one clergyman in his
vast 'diocese; when he had finished his
work, there were three dioceses in British
Columbia, and the staff of clergy had been
increased to eighty. The late Baroness
Burdett-Coutts gave to the original Bishopric of Columbia, with its two archdeacon-
aries, an endowment of £25,000, and the
foundation of the See was celebrated by a
great gathering of distinguished men and
women at the Mansion House. It was
largely due to their aid and influence  that

good auspices. This week there has been
another distinguished gathering at the
Mansion House, similar to and commera-
tive of that of 1859, the object in view
being to raise a very suitable memorial to
the pioneer bishop by the establishment of
a training college for clergy, which it is
proposed to affliate as a Church Hostel to
the Provincial University of British Columbia, now being incubated, if one may use
that phrase. The initial endowment of the
hostel ia £30,000, The university itself it

Dropsy Induced by Beer Drinking.
Dr. M. H. Parmalee, physician and sur-
gon twelve years in Toledo, says: "The
majority of saloon-keepers die from dropsy,
arising from kidney and liver diseases, induced by beer drinking. My experience
has been that saloon keepers and men
working around breweries are very liable
to these diseases.' When one of those
apparently stalwart, beery fellows is attacked by a disorder that would not be
regarded as at all dangerous in a person
of ordinary constitrition, or even a delicate,
weakly child or woman, he is liable to drop
off like an over-ripe apple from the tree,
you are never sure of him a minute. He
may not be dangerously sick to-day, and
to-morrow he is in his shroud. Most
physicians, like myself, dread being called
upon to take charge of a sick man who is
an habitual beer drinker. The form of
Bright . disease known as the swollen or
large white kidney is much more frequent
among beer drinkers than any other class
of people.''
Insanity Caused by Beer Drinking.
Dr. S. S. Lungren : "The brain and its
membranes surfer (Severely, and. after
irritation and inflammation comes dullness
and stupidity. There is, no question in
my mind that many brain diseases and
cases of insanity are caused by excessive
beer drinking."
Dr. C. A. Kirkley: "Under its influence
the mental powers are more inactive . than
the physical. There is hardly a single
cause that operates more powerfully in
the production of insanity; and not only
that, but it excites the action of other
causes that may be present."
Bright's Disease Due to Beer.
Dr. W. T. Ridenour: "I have no doubt
the rapid spread of Bright's disease is
largely due to beer drinking. I have always believed that Bayard Taylor fell a
victim to the German beer that he praised
so highly. , He died of Bright's disease at
fifty, when he should have lived, with his
constitution, to a ripe old age. He'went
just as . beer drinkers are . going all the
time anc everywhere."     ,
Dr. C. A. Kirkley : "I believe that forty-
nine out of fifty cases of chronic Bright's
disease are directly produced by it. I have
never met with a case in which the patient
has not been intemperate to a -greater or
less degree. The proportion may.be too
high, but that is certainly my experience.
Mr. Christian, a celebrated author, states
that three fourths to four-fifths of the
cases met with in Edinburgh. were in
habitual drunkards."
Beer Drinking Produces Rheumatism.
Dr. W. T. Ridenour: "Beer drinking
produces rheumatism by producing chronic
congestion and ultimately degeneration of
the liver, thus interfering with its function
by which the food is elaborated and fitted
for the sustenance of the body."
Dr. S. H. Burgen : "AH beer drinkers
have rheumatism, more or less, and no
one can recover from it as long as he
drinks beer.. Notice how a beer drinker
walks about stiff on his heels, without any
of the natural elasticity and spring from
the toes and ball of the foot that a healthy
man should have. That is because the
beer increases the lithia deposits about
the smaller joints."'      7'-.
Beer Cripples the Liver.
7 Drl S. H. Burgen: "The first effect on the
liver is to congest and enlarge it. Then
follows a low grade of inflammation and
subsequent contraction .of- the capsules,
producing 'hob-nailed' or drundard's liver,
the surface covered with little lumps that^

Beer Drinking and Longevity
.The president of theConnecticet Mutual
Life Insurance Company—one of the oldest
in the country—has for years been investigating  the   relation  of .beer drinking  to
longevity;   or .otherwise,   whether   beer
drinkers are desirable risks for a life   insurance company. s -.
He declared, as the result of a series of
observations carried on among a selected
group   of   persons    who   were   habitual
drinkers of beer, that although for two or.
three years there was nothing remarkable.*
yet presently  death began to strike, and
then the mortality became astounding and
uniform in its manifestations.
There was no mistaking it; the history
waa almost invariable; robust, apparent
health, full muscles, a fair outside, increasing weight, florid faces; then a touch of
cold or a sniff of malaria, and instantly
some acute disease, with almost invariable
typhoid symptoms, was in violent action,
and ten days or less ended it. It was as if
the system had been kept fair on the out-'
side, while within it was eaten to a shell,
and at the first touch of disease there was
utter, collapse, every fibre was poisoned
and weak.
' And in its main features, varying in degree, has been his observation in beer
drinking everywhere. It is peculiarly
deceptive at first; it is thoroughly destructive at the last   -
Huge Scheme of Profit Sharing.
W. H. Lever, M.P., the chairman and

at Port Sunlight the scheme of co-partnership certificates, to be distributed among
the employees of over five years' service
in annual allotments.
His speech explaining the scheme in
detail was received.with tremendous enthusiasm, and at its conclusion the whole
2,000 rose and joined in singing "For he's
a jolly good Fellow."

Shot for Slapping Highwayman.
Jennie Ried, 22 years old, of Baltmore,
was murdered last night by a highwayman
at Mount Washington, a residence suburb.
She and J. Meuller, to whom she was engaged to be married, were on the way to
visit friends at Mount Washington, and
according to Meuller's statement, left the
car at South avenue. When they,,had
walked half a block, and were in a lonely
place, they were stopped by a man1, who
levelling a pistol, called for their valuables.
Mueller says he gave up what money he
had, and then the highwayman desired a
necklace worn by Miss Ried. Her reply
was a slap in the face, upon receiving
which the man fired, the bullet striking
the girl behind the left ear. She was
carried into a nearby house, but death
had been almost instantaneous. The
highwayman disappeared.

1 -The Manufacture of Cider.
The following is an extract from a recent
bulletin' issued by the Inland Revenue
Department,' and may be of interest to
apple-growers:' / :
"The manufacture of cider has not received the attention which it deserves; and
this,_ is especially true bf Canada. /The
apple crop of Canada is stated as 18,626,186
bushels for 1901. It is capable of,great
increase; and the manufacture' of cider,
under proper conditions, may become a
great industry in Canada. That the world's
market for cider is not fully supplied
appears from the fact that dried apples,
cores and parings are regularly shipped
from the United States to France, to be
used in the manufacture of a low quality
of cider, in spite of the fact that France is
itself the largest apple-producing country
of the world . The annual production of
cider in France is 647,000,000 gallons.
' Fighting Red Tape With a Gun.
An exasperated settler from Indiana
held up a switch crew at Emerson, Man.,
with a gun. W. J. Veitch bound for Saskatchewan with a car of. horses and settlers' effects was unloaded at quarantine'
yards and was delayed so many hours by
the crew and quarantine regulation to the
point of exasperation, until he took command of the Canadian Notthern line and
held Engineer Sinclair of the switch crew
to get his car spotted.
He was up before Magistrate Whitman
and Mayor Hamilton this morning, and
pleaded guilty to the hold-up, stating that
persuasion had failed and being in desperate straits, having only $39 dollars and
his,family on the road to meet him, he
had to do something desperate to get
what he wanted.
The magistrate, after consultation, said
as the gun had got him in trouble it would
be confiscated and let Veitch off on suspended sentence. The magistrates agreed
that the quarantine .regulation and other
such delays as he 'had experienced were"
somewhat exasperating.
Canada's Maritime Interests.
.The annual report of the Canadian
marine department for the last fiscal year
shows that the total number of new vessels
built and registered in the Dominion during the year was 392, measuring'38,410
tons register, with a total estimated value
of $1,728,450. The total number of vessels
on the register books of the Dominion at the beginning of last year was
7,528, measuring 698,688 tons. The number of steamers was 3,007, with a gross
tonage of 471,795 tons.
In respect to total registered tonage Canada ranks tenth among the maritime
countries of the world.
Forty-seven sail and steam vessels of
6,334 gross tons were built in the United
States, and officially numbered during the
month of February, according to a report
by the bureau of navigation of the department of commerce and labor.        ;
The distribution of these vessels in the
various water, where they will be put in
service, is as follows: Atlantic and gulf,
25 ; Pacific, 11; great lakes, I ; western

--.   Bee Stings and Rheumatism
Whether bee stings are an effective
remedy for rheumatism, as has so often
been asserted, seems to be a matter of
widespread curiosity. Perhaps the most
conclusive report is that of Dr. Tere, of
Marburg, Styria.'y In. twenty years this
physician has used bee stings in more than
700 cases, and has found that three or four
operations give immunity to the pain and
swelling from the stings, and that a single
treatment may cure rheumatism, although
old cases may require hundreds of stings.
Believing that formic acid is the active
agent, Dr. Lamarche has tried hypodermic
injections of this substance on rheumatic
patients with good results. As this theory
does not seem to be conclusively established, however, Dr. Walker is inclined to
attriubute the curarive action to a neutral-
isating of the rheumatic poison by some
'special toxin introduced by jhe bees.

An alarm of fire startled the
people of the-town on Monday
morning shortly after seven
o'clock. The new fire brigade
valliantly turned out in anticipation of a chance to distinguish
themselves. The fire however
turned out to be nothing worse
than a chimney at the house of C.
G. Clement which had developed
a crack under the roof, allowing
the smoke to escape under the
shingles, The only damage done
was the cutting of a hole through
the roof to locate the source of
the trouble.

I far as we can hear  no steps  haye
I as yet been taken to interfere with

; is depressing .that Kelowna should
beso calldusin the face of. this
new and revolutionary departure in
its civic.life. There seems to us only
*• one solution of this apparent indifference and it is, that the people
of this city are a little better in-
i formed as to. the character of
Socialism than some people would
have us belieye, and therefore' we
will be serious. .      ,    ,-,;;
We have:from time to time seen
definitions of Socialism which can

}  deliberate malice.    We have seen
:   it defined as anarchy ; as a system
;* which'which advocates  free- love
and the break  up   of  the  home;
atheism', the Antichrist and so forth.
On the desk before Us lies a copy
of a sermon preached in London,
Eng., on Feb; 14th, by the Rev.
Chas. Voysey, B.A., in which .appears these words:—"Socialism is
the name given to the most
diabolical scheme for the sake of
utter coyetousness and downright
robbery^ inspired by that very envy
and greed which Milton tells us
was the sole cause of strife
heaven itself and which turned
even angels of God into Devils."
A local editor has described it as

and echoing the wail of the ur.

that advocates a more precise,
orderly and harmonious arrangement, of the relations of mankind
than that which has hitherto prevailed."

ed writers and lecturers we are
convinced that they arc unanimous
regarding the foundation principles of Socialism and could t>ay
in the words of John Ruskin ("Unto I
this last") "Government and cooperation are in all things the laws
of life; anarchy and competition
the laws of death."
The   present   industrial  system
stands for competition and   death;
Socialism is like the voice   of   one
crying in   the   wilderness   for   cooperation and life more abundant.
We would like to deal at length
at some future time with   the  subject    of "Competition   versus   Cooperation" but  in  passing  would
merely call your   attention   to   the
recent conference in  Victoria "between the   Fruit-Growers   and   the
C.P.R.     What  does  it'alb mean,
Mr. Jonathan Grower?     You  are
in business for profit and   in   your
own colloquial language  you   are
indeed "up against it."     The C.P.
R. will from   time   to  time  throw
you a little wheat to keep you from
cackling, but   you   need   not   fear
they will kill you   for   the   golden
eggs.    You, the creators of wealth
will just have to rustle for your food
most of the time and your  friends
may tell you  to "put  your  hands
to the rope   and   plant  your   feet
firm," but it would do you a  great
deal   more   good   if  some   of the
capitalist profit-mongers  who   are
robbing   you    of   your    produce
would put their necks to   the rope
and let  their  feet   dangle.    They
are so depraved however by   their
lust for  gain   that   they   have   not
even the decency that  Judas  had,
to go and hang themselves.
