G. W. V.-A. Masquerade
Dance is Popular -
The Masonic Hall presented an
animated "appearance on Friday
night:, on the occasion of the
fourth annual G. W. V. A. Masquerade Dance. One hundred and
seventy-eight ledies and gentlemen
attended and danced with unalloyed pleasure until four o'clock.
Even then they were reluctant to
quit. Besides that there were 113
spectators and a lot of kiddies and
196 sat down to supper.
The management had spared uo
effort to make it a success. The
hall was comfortably warm; the
decorations though simple were
very effective; and the supper was
"home cooking" and provided by
the ladies. Bush's orchestra gave
great satisfaction; each musician
was an artiste and they were very
liberal and cheery with encores.
In the quality and variety of.
costumes it has never been eclipsed,
soine of ' the costumes dating back
to the 12th century to the present
tiffife. Mrs. G. S. Walters as a
"1923 Flapper" was the; scream of
the evening and the part was certainly carried out7 to perfection.
Mrs. C. T. Fenner deserves special
mention for hei' very distinctive
and original costume "Christmas".
One is unable to do justice to the
large number of fine costumes
which were many and varied, and
showed originality and painstaking
energy, so the writer must be
pardoned for not venturing further
save to mention the prize winners.
The prize for the handsomest costume was awarded to Mrs. Clarke
of Carmi, as a Snow Queen. It
was an exquisitely fine dress, and
the character was beautifully sustained. The best dressed girl was-
awarded to Miss Vera Walmsley
as "Fairy." /The most humorous
character was Dick Tavlor as a
Fiji Islander, a truly fantastic
make-up. The best dressed gent
was A'. N, Mowat as King Charles
II. The boys prize went to John
Putzel, who was dressed as a
tramp. The judges were Mrs.
Macklin and Mrs. J. Richter, of
Midway, Mrs. G-. Inglis and H.
R. Bidder, of .Greenwood. Their
task was a " very difficult .one.
Spectators could almost imagine
themselves back in the times
when knighthood was ia flower.
The grand march was magnificient
arid floor manager H. A. Nichols,
kept the large crowd well in hand.
The ladiesjn charge of the supper arrangements- certainly 7had
_their hands f ullW Over. _1000 sand-.
wicb.es were made in the afternoon
but this was not enough and : more
had to be made. ;The.7G.W.,V.A.

Rock Creek WomenB' Institute
held their regular meeting on Oct.
28th at which there was a good attendance of members. The secretary gave a'report on the Fall Fair
accounts. Much interest wae taken
in the Oriental league discussion
and Mrs. Morris being a member
of the league was appointed to represent Rock Creek Institute.
The delegate gave an interesting
report of the Nelson conference.
A vote of thanks was passed to
the English lady for the paper on
"Impressions of Life in Western
Canada," which the members greatly appreciated. ^
IMPRESSIONS   ON LIFE    IN   WESTERN
CANADA
When the English woman rashly
promised to write this paper, she
thought that by the time it was
read, thousands of miles of land
and ocean would be between her
and Western Canada and that she
could have said what she liked
with impunity, but how that she is
a settler in Western Canada it behoves her to go to work carefully.
However the fact that she is quite
content to stay in this country"
shows that most of her .impressions
were happy ones.
When one lives in England one
forms various ideas about life in
the more distant parts of the Empire. Most of the ideas I had
formed of life in this country have
been confirmed by my impressions
of it, thoug some have been changed
verymuch. One always imagines
that life in the very far west is
much freer than .the more formal
Ebglish life, and I certainly found
it so. One always hears much of
the optimism of the West and that
optimistic spirit is very noticeable
ail over Canada���from -the time
that one lands... It-is. probably, due
to the beautiful sunny climate, also
to the fact that if one thing fails
there is always something else behind it. One often hears the expression in the .west, so-and-so is
broke. But if he is broke the local
store seems to step in, act like a
kind father' and^ give unlimited
credit and the broke one goes gaily
on in the same cheerful way. This
may not be,strictly true but that is
how it strikes one. If a man were
broke in Eifgland he would indeed
be broke and it would be very difficult for him. to obtain credit of
any sorb.
One is spared many of the squalid sights that is seen in European
cities, and,by the.way, I must say
how Btrange it seemed at first to
me that theTword city is indiscriminately -applied'to a few houses; a
small.town or a really bigVcity.
Social.life in a, large city .as very
much like what it."is in a large
city.;ih England���always .with the
exception of .the climate which jn.
this country makes for more freedom and gaiety. . One notices ..a
greater difference in the. Hocial life
of; the;country .which is much- less
formal.'.' 7. .':-.: 7 '������
I. dont think I have ever seen a
neglected child in Caiiada, they all
look so Vwell cared for. What
strikes one. very'much is the inter-
esfe;that nearly all the women take
in. public affairs and their easy
command of the language in public
speaking; Most of the;problems
dipeussed seem to centre rotind the
welfare and education of thej child/.
Politics are^j^rently a very vexed
question f^mis countryV- T' hayn't.
fachomed them;yet, but should like
to quote7whafe, Professor Stephen
Leacock; of Montreal .gays in his
book "My Discovery of England."
Discussing the difference between
politics on. the two = sidesV.bf. the
water, he says, '.'Our7 politicians
will do anything for money, and
the English politician wont; they,
jnst take the money and wont do
anything for it." Perhaps'that
just hits the nail on the head, bat
Professor Leacock also aseerts tbafc
the Scotch are really quick,.at seeing a joke, so one mupfc judge for
oneself how ranch of the former
statement to believe.
Now, may I aay something not
quite complimentary? What strikes
one very much on the journey
across Canada and particularly in

In this column last week approval was expressed of the announced intention of the Minister of the Interior to have legislation introduced at the next
session of Parliament making provision for the granting of extra.homesteads
to men whose present holdings had been found to be unsuitable for successful
agricultural operations. At the same time the opinion was expressed that
the policy now proposed to bo followed in the case of these homesteaders
should be extended to include other farmers located on lauds found to be unsuitable for farming.
Tho Canada Colonization Association has embarked on a comprehensive
scheme of land settlement and has adopted as its objective the settlement of
ten million people in Canada in ten years. One of the cardinal features of its
plan is lo make careful selection of the land npon which these settlers arc
placed, and to keep close watch of their progress with a view lo assisting
Ihem to succeed. To that end it Is proposed to establish local community,
clubs to care for, assist, and extend a helping hand and friendly advice to
thoso new settlers. Should it bo found that, from causes over which the
settler has no control, he is not succeeding, and cannot succeed, in his chosen
location, then, rather than have him fail aud leave the country, he is to bo
assisted to locate, elsewhere in Canada where he can succeed.
If this is good policy insofar as settlers yet to come are concerned���and
who questions its wisdom?���then is it not equally good policy to apply to
people already here and who aro not making a success in their present
locations?
There are thousands of farmers who, after years of effort, are reluctantly
forced to the conclusion that they must pull up stakes, and try a new location.
If, Instead of at once beginning to encourage people to come to Canada from
other lands, the Canada Colonization Association devoted its efforts for the
first year to finding out farmers who are in this predicament, and assisting
them to new locations in these Western Provinces where they can make a
success, that Association would bo doing a splendid stroke of business for Canada, would establish the confidence of all people in its programme and policy,
and would lay the foundation for future years of successful operation in the
bringing iu and locating of new settlers.
Settlers already here, but who have not made a success of farming he-
cause of conditions absolutely beyond their control, are the very type this
country needs and can ill-afford to lose. These men have courage. They
are hard workers. They are optimists, and have year after year striven to
make good. It is through no fault of their own that success has not attended
their efforts. The Canada Colonization Association, therefore, can hardly do
better than apply lo these men the very policy they propose lo apply to all
new settlers coming into Canada under their auspices.
There are, admittedly, difficulties to be overcome.     Many of these men
are heavily iu debt.     Mortgage has been piled on mortgage on the unsuitable
lands they now occupy and are attempting to farm.     Holders of these mortgages may be averse to seeing them move away.   But inasmuch as there is;
little hope of success attending their efforts if they remain, and as, therefore,
the mortgage companies would hare to take a loss in any event, would it not
be the part of wisdom to confer with such mortgage holders now and reach
a settlement under which these people could be moved to new locations within
the Dominion?     Moved elsewhere, and success attending their efforts, most
of -them would'gradually discharge' their obligations "which under present conditions there is slight hope of ever helm, done.-    Again, located, under "more
favorable circumstance's these people would -become'.profitable clients for .investors' oK money .'.which -would bo used ,to7 develop" lands', capable .of ?earning

colors. One house will be a bright

Carat Gold
What Is Meant When We Speak Of
18 Carats
One often speaks of a ring being
14-carat gold or of 22 or 18-carat watch
cases or jewelery, but not all know
just what is meant by 14, 18 or 22-
carat.
Gold is divided Into 24 parts���that
is, pure gold is said to contain 24
carats���the carat being just a measurement term. A ring or watch case
marked 14k or lSk means that 14 or
18 parts of it are pure gold, the balance of the 24 carats being some sort
of alloy, copper being generally used.
If articles of jewelery were made
of pure gold they would not wear
well, as gold is a very soft metal,
and it is, therefore, necessary to mix
the gold with some harder substance.

a success of their viniculture, but this

They, too.Jiave been hard hit by the

People Recognized His Genius When
�� It Was Too Late
They gave Henry Hertzberg Law-
son, the Australian poet and novelist,
a state funeral in Sydney. Despatches described it as an "imposing
affair, fitting the occasion of the
laying away of the nation's sweet
singer," and there was due applause
from tho world at large for this
splendid recognition of a poet's
worth���when he was dead.
Whilo he was alive, however,
Poet Lawson did not fare so well.
"Australia's greatest miuistrel," as he
was called at the time of the funeral,
died penniless. Indeed, if it had riot
been for the public funeral under
Government auspices he would have
been buried as a pauper. He had
been in receipt of a small pension
from the Government for some time
before his death, and this should be
ascribed to the State of New South
Wales with proper appreciation, for
was it not virtually a pioneer in the
gracious act of pensioning a poet?
Still, Lawson lived in poverty. The
people did not realize that they had a
genius in their country until he was
laid away with "funeral trappings" befitting Government recognition. Then
they began to buy his books.
Pooi- as he was, Poet Lawson
left a will. All his worldly belongings wero mentioned in bequests.
These were: Two suits of clothes,
an overcoat, a necktie, a collar stud,
a pen, a pipe, a tin matchbox, a pair
of spectacles, a walking stick, and two
packets of tobacco.

Report that Road Will Not Be "Completed Is Now Denied    /
J. A. Campbell, Commissioner for
Northern Manitoba, described as
"misleading" the report emanating
from The Pas that the picking up of
unused railway material on the Hudson's Bay Railroad indicated that
completion and operation of the rall^
way would not be brought about. The
material, . he said, would be used
for improving rail conditions on other
parts of the railway, particularly on
the line north of Pikwitonel, which
has not been operated for several,
years.
Since the report had been broadcasted, Mr. . Campbell said, messages
had been received from boards of
trade in the west, asking for information, and protesting against
any action that might indicate delay
in completing the road.     7

very weak, and after using the pills I
��� felt like a different woman. They
are wonderful strength builders. For
nursing mothers they are a blessing,
at least I havo found them so."

An Engineering Wonder
Tower Which Spreads Concrete Over
Ten Acres
The Insley Concrete Chuting Tower
in the grounds of the British Empire
Exhibition at ��� Wembley raises concrete by means of a lift and distributes it over ground anywhere within a radius of about 450 feet���over
te'n acres.
Concrete is hoisted up the framework 'of the tower, which is 160 feat
high, and thrown into position without handling. The distance which it
is thrown can be altered according to
requirements.
In this way hundreds of tons of concrete can be laid daily.
Hoactzin A Remarkable Bird
Claws Disappear When Wings Grow
Strong Enough for Support
The Hoactzin of British Guinea is
one of the most remarkable birds in
the world. Almost as soon as, it.is
hatched the young hoactzin crawls
out of tho nest by using its wings
as -forefeet. The "thumb" and "forefinger" of the wings have claws with
which the young bird climbs about
the branches. As soon as the wings
grow strong enough to support the
bird in thc air tlie claws disappear.

STOMACH TROUBLE?
INDIGESTION?
A Penitent Woman's Act of Love
(vv. 37, 48). \
1. Place of (v. 37). It was in the
home of Simon .the Pharisee while
Jesus was sitting at meat. The feast
must have been public, else she could
not have so readily gained access.
2. The"Act of (v. 38). She washed
Jesus' feet with her tears and wiped
them with her hair.- Through some
means she had heard of Jesus' pardoning grace, and God had opened her
heart to receive Him as her Saviour.
Out of a heart of gratitude she kissed
His feet and anointed them with precious ointment.
3. Who She Was (v. 37). Her name
is not mentioned. She 'was of a
notoriously bad characler. Though
known to the public as a bad woman,
something had happened wliich transformed her. She was now a saved
sinner, because she believed on Jesus
Christ.
II. The Pharisee's Displeasure (v. 39).
Simon   felt   scandalized by such a
happening at his table. He was a respectable man. For Jesus to tolerate
such familiarity on the part of a
woman of such evil repute greatly
perplexed him. He reasoned-that if
Jesus wero a prophet He would have
known thc character of this woman
and would have either withdrawn His
feet from her or thrust her back with
them, or if He knew her character His
tolerance of such familiarity proved
that He was not a good man. Simon's
righteousness was of that sort which
gathers up its skirts and gives the sinner a backward push into his filth.
III. Jesus Teaches the Pharisee (vv.
40-48). - /
He taught him by means of a parable of a creditor and two debtors.
Observe that Jesus made it very clear
that Pie not only knew the woman,
but knew Simon also.
1. The Common Debl( v. 41).     The
woman was a sinner, so was Simon,
_
though he was not the same kind of a
sinner that she was. There were two
debtors', though 7 the one owed ten
times as much as the other. This is
representative of all sinners still. The
Bible declares all to be sinners, yet
recognizes degrees of guilt. 'Full credit ought to be given to the man who is
honest, virtuous, generous and kind.
Yet such a life will not: secure entrance to heaven. The Savior's words
are a severe rebuke to the respectable
Pharisees who are sitting in judgment
against the sinners of a coarser type.
2. The Common Insolvency, (v. 42).
"And when they had nothing, to pay"
Jesus freely granted the difference, in
the. degree of the womafi'-s sins arid
those of the'"Pharisee, but drovie home
to him the fact that they were both
debtors and 'had nothing with which
to pay (Rom. 3:23). Therefore all
have need of a Savior, ,"��� As sinners
we-may quit, our sinning and liatc.ouT
deeds, but that does, not-make satisfaction, for the "sins of the past. .What
we have 7 done is irrevocableV-it, has

Geography In Names
Many Every-Dny Articles TakeyN7amc
From Towns
Many things we use every day are
named after the towns from which
they originally came.        ... 0
For instance, probably you have a
pair of worsted socks, which were
once made at Wbrstead, but which
nowadays come principally from Hud-
dersfield, England; or a Panama hat,
which comes from Ecuador instead of
the place from which It took its name.
Cambric handkerchiefs aro so-called
from the town of Cambral, in France.
Tweed suits. Inverness capes, and
Leghorn hats are examples of the
same thing. The connection between
damsons and Damascus is not so obvious, but damson is really only a
contraction for Damascene plum. Cut-
rants get their name from the fact
that originally they were made from
small grapes, which still grow near
Corinth, in Greece; they were formerly called Corinthians.
Cherries came from the city of
Cerasus, which once stood in Asia
Minor, while chestnuts preserve the
name of Castana, another city of the
past.
The names of two cheeses, Cheddar and Silton, come from two villages, one in Somerset and the other
in Huntingdonshire , England. Worcester, Dresden and Sevres have all
given names to different kinds of
china,-and Delft, a small Dutch town,
is remembered by Delft pottery.
Not the Same William
A lady engaged a new gardener, and
after breakfast one day she sauntered
out among the flowers.     Seeing the
new man hard at work, she said:
"Well, and how is my Sweet William this morriing?"
"First rate, thanks, ma'am," replied
the man of the spade. "But how did
ypu know my name.

Britain Recapturing Trade
Will Soon Regain Pre-War Business
With Foreign Countries
Trade's diversities were suggested
by two of Canada's trade commissioners who met from widely different fields in Winnipeg. Dr. J. W.
Ross, Canada "ambassador" of trade
to China, was at the P.oyal Alexandra
Hotel on his way back to his post at
Shanghai, which he describes as the
commercial metropolis of China, and
Major G. B. Johnson, Canada's trade
commissioner to Scotland, accidentally met him while on his way west,
inquiring Into industrial affairs in this
country before returning to his post
at Glasgow. ;,
Dr. Ross thinks it somewhat df a
pity that Canada is not more enlightened in its appreciation of the
tremendous commercial development
which is transforming China into a
highly productive and of a quickly
changing nation . capable of tremendous absorption3 of foreign Imports.
Major Johnson sees a slow, but sure,
return being made by Great Britain
to its former supremacy, if not to its
former volume of trade ln the many
foreign fields it has had lo recapture
and rebuild since the great war. And
as its internal adjustment of such
^ital matters as labor and unemployment- are being accomplished, the ability to produce exports for foreign markets yields the proceeds from which
to meet tha huge national liabilities
and to revive trade, thus promising a
return, ln time, to the demand for Canadian products which prevailed under
pre-war conditions.

World Traveler
Gives Tanlac
High Praise
"Tanlac has restored me to such ex>_
cellent health that I can recommend
it most slncer'ejy. It brought ma
complete relief after I had been in the
hospital two months with neuritis, and
built me up in a short time from a
dreadfully run-down condition.
This emphatic statement was made
by Mrs. Vivian Angelo Short, highly
esteemed resident of 2139, 34th Ave.,
Calgary. Mrs. Short is a woman ot
exceptional education and refinement.
She has traveled extensively, having
been practically, all over the world.
She lived in London and Paris several
years and has visited Smyrna, recently burned in the Turko-Grecian con>
flict, and Constantinople.
"About a, year ago,'-' said Mrs.
Short, "I was attacked by neuritis. It
caused terrific pain in my knees,
ankles, arms and shoulders. The
soreness and stiffness were exceptionally severe, and often my ankles and
joints would be painfully swollen. I
could not walk, every attempt causing
me perfect agony and I was unable to
rest day or night.
"On the urgent advice of a nurse
I began taking Tanlac.'3 Within two
weeks I.was so much improved I was
able to wtJlk about the house. I took
four bottles, and at present I' am
totally free from���any trace of my old
malady. I will always feel that I am
deeply indebted to Tanlac."

Department of Bee Husbandry
University of Saskatchewan Has New
Course This Year
When the University of Saskatchewan opened its doors for the fall term
it had a new department, a course in
bee industry, optional with students
taking the agrarian lectures. The
novel feature Is that this department
is presided over by a woman, Miss J.
II. Bayford, who has raised bees for
fifteen years. In 1921, she gathered
920 pounds of honey on her farm at
Wawota, Sask., which she marketed at
70 cents a pound arid the agricultural
college decided to enlist her services
when the new course was established.

"The   Educational   system    of
British Columbia is second to none
in Canada or the United States and
is equalled in few instances," was
the claim of Hon. J. D. MacLean,
minister of education, in discussing
school questions recently   in   the
Legislature.     Despite criticism of
the opposition, he  maintained that
the young people of  the province
were  being   afforded    the   fullest
educational facilities  and a study
of the system would   bear this out.
He said that the teachers in British Columbia were of a high standard,   the  majority    holding   high
claBS certificates.       Rural  schools
are receiving tbe maximum of support from the government, was the
ministers contention, aud he pointed  out  to the House  that it was
necessary  to  see that the districts
of small population   did   not suffer
because of   the  demands   of   the
cities.
City Council
mended overhauling all the hydrants and this was ordered to be
done immediately. Arrangements were made with the school
trustees whereby the Council and.
City Trustee would be kept informed of the progress and cost
of maintenance of the school departments.
Criticism was made of the appointment of certain city work
and the several committees asked
to be guided accordingly iu the
future.
Owing: to the large amount expended this summer on the skating rink, the Trustee is unwilling
for any further expense and in
consequence the curling club is
undertaking the cost of water
pipes being relaid aud connections made with the main. This
service will be applicable for
both skating- and curling rinks.

Sale of Work and Dance
The regular meeting of the
City Council was held in the City
offices on Monday, November
13th. Mayor Gulley presided
and Aldermen Taylor, Mowat,
King, Docksteader and Kerr
present.
The various matters of business brought forward by Mr.
Awrey, the City Trustee, at the
special meeting last Thursday
was considered and agreed upon.
The principal points involved
were the school finances, city
properties, electric lighting,
health 'and pound., by-laws. Re-,
garding the pound question the
Trustee, was firmly convinced of
its necessity unless a majority of
the taxpayers desired otherwise.
His decision was strengthened by

The Sale of Work and Dance
which the Rock Creek United

district. The Tumble Stall is
puzzling many and promises to be
ono of the attractions of the show.
Everyone will be able to get just
what they have been wanting,
either new or second band, at most
reasonable prices. Then there is
the fortune tellers booth, anyone
wanting a peep intD the future will
be told exactly what is going to
happen. The posters will give information about the other stalls
aud dance. It may be mentioned
that this Dance promises to be one
of the events of the season. Bush's

but with such music aud a special
supper put up by the Women

sufficient for one night's entertainment.
Montreal���A press dispatch from
Calgary crediting to the secretary
of the Federated Shop Trades there,
a .statement to the effect that the
C.P.R. and certain other railways
had knowledge of the conciliation
board's award some days before it
was filed with the department o��
labor and in consequer^e thereof
had paid the reduced rates of wages
as set by the conciliation board,
prior to the announcement of the
award by the department of labor,
was brought to the attention* of
George Hodge, assistant general
manager of the C.P.R., Eastern
lines, who conducted the case for
the railways before the board of
conciliation   and   investigation.
Mr. Hodge denied most emphatically the correctness of the statement. He said further that as far
as the C.P.R. was concerned it had
no knowledge of the report until it
was received at the company's offices on September 4, and that instructions to restore ra-t.es of pay
which had previously been put into
effect as from July 16, were issued
under date of September 5, making
the reduced rates effective as from
August 16.

cent more grain has been handled by
the Canadian Pacific Railway up to
{the middle of October this year,
.than ever before for the same period. That will give you an idea of
jthe way the grain is being taken out
of the country," said Mr. Chas.
Murphy, general manager of Western Lines of the Canadian Pacific
Railway.
He expressed himself very well
pleased with the movement of the
crop throughout the, whole West.
-When asked as to the possibility of
a grain blockade, Mr. Murphy stated
that the Canadian Pacific was accepting ajl grain that was being offered. He pointed out that on one
day over four million, bushels had
been taken out of Fort William and
Port Arthur. Mr. Murphy pointed
out that there was difficulty in.getting bottoms on the lakes to take the
grain out, but the elevators were
far from being full, and the Canadian Pacific still had the big Trans-
cona elevator empty.
Already Mr. Murphy stated there
was a" large quantity of grain being
shipped out from the head of.the
lakes by the all rail route. He declared that he could see no g-rain
blockade in sight.  .
Mr. Murphy pointed out that the
Canadian Pacific had moved 14,000
cars off the Saskatchewan division
of the railway. This was five thou-:
sand more cars of Saskatchewan
wheat than had been moved in the
same period in any year.
; He also pointed out -that even
with the unprecedented grain.movement the Canadian Pacific was moving from 250 to 275 carloads per
day from the Western coal mines.
"There was thirteen thousand tons
moved yesterday," he declared. 1
was here three weeks or a month ago
and at that time I stated we were
moving 250 to' 275 cars of coal a
- day, and the movement has been
kept at that ever since. We realize,
he declared, that the wheat can be
moved during the cold weather and
people can live, but if the cold
weather comes and there is no coal
there will be great, suffering in the
. country,' and possibly worse.

Hon.r William; Sloan,' minister of

that;Asiatics.be .totally excluded

- He went into details regarding the

in future they would have to be

showed that   the    Japanese   and
Chinese   had   secured   practically
fail cdntrol  of the   fisheries and
market-garden industries and that
7 the former were securing a strong
hold upon the lumbering industries.
He showed how iri  the early years

Tlie. exact date of the conference at
which the-date was planned is not preserved, in the local tradition. It. seems
probable that John Brown visited Chatham on several occasions in connection
with his work for the slaves. The'con-

^Playthings of Destiny"
Winnipeg���September records of
the handling of the season's crop afford a remarkable demonstration of
efficiency in grain handling by railroads, elevators and by the human
element that plans and directs.
Compared with other years the
September movement far siirpass.es
all previous records. All over the
west long trains are carrying the
current of wheat to the lake front
and thence to the markets of the
world.
Feeding the transportation routes
are thousands of threshing outfits
which during the recent fine weather have been operating in every district from early morning until dark.
A summary of the Winnipeg inspections shows the magnitude ^of
the movement as compared with
1921
Three weeks were spent in. the
frigid, snow-bound region of
Truckee by Anita Stewart and her
company to secure the beautiful
frozen north scenes which will be
seen in her latest Louis B. Mayer
production, distributed through
Associated First National, "Playthings of destiny," which will be
the attraction at the Greenwood
Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 18.
With a - couple of powerful wind
machines to stir np the snow,
which was over three feet deep at
Truckee at the time, Director
Edwin Carewe secured some very
realistic blizzard scenes.

Calgary, Alta.���Many fanners in
the irrigated districts in southern
Alberta have every reason to be satisfied with the result cf their season's work, according to G. IT. Hut-
ton, superintendent of the agricultural and animal industry branch
of the Canadian Pacific Department
of Natural Resources in Calgary,
who has returned after a visit to
that section of the province. Tha
yield of wheat has turned out most
satisfactory, in some'cases averaging thirty-seven bushels to the acre.
One man in the Coaldale district had-
realized a net profit of:?G.000 from
425  acres.   ���
In the Vauxhall district one of
the farmers had informed Mr. Hut-
ton that he purposed fii ishing with
10.0 steers, 5,000 lambs and from
twenty-five to thirty dairy cattle,
and that he would have even then.
200 tons of hay for sale from one
section of land. Incidentally Mr..
Hutton mentioned that the feeding
of the lambs under contract in tho
irrigated districts was being considerably extended this year. ������ The
business promised to provide a most
satisfactory market for alfalfa hay
and coarse grain, and to involve a
relatively1 small risk, inasmuch as it
was" possible to contract lanibs now
for spring delivery. The profits
from that line of work, he said, were
in marked contrast to those' which
w~re-realized even under'the best of
conditions in the growing.of grain
alone on irrigated land.-  ���' --   ���
