vidence for not giving it thc size and
statelincss of its neighbors.
This place was called Hardwoods
Retreat. The man had built the grand
cabin with his own hands, largely.
Every tree in that grove was dear to
him. He knew all the hardwoods,
well, indeed; close and intimate association with them for five ycars had
caused him to look upon them as
friends. Sometimes he laughed at
himself for being so foolish as to believe that he understood their language. Take that ta.111 hickory standing apart from its fellows, now.
Whenever a storm was brewing, that
okj tree always shook its branches
and sent him word. "Sweesh-e-
swosh - swecsh-e - swosh" it would
whisper as he passed beneath it.
Even when the sky above swam like
a sea of robin's-egg blue, and the sun
paths streaked the canopy like the
spokes of a giant wheel, and not a
cloud was anywhere visible in tlic
heavens, that old hickory would often
send its agitated message down to
him; and he would slap its rough bark
and say, "All right, old friend, I'll go
j gather up my family."
And the gathering up of that family was by no mcans easy. The foxes
littic liked being taken from their
sunny beds among the hazel copse,
the racoons did their best to hide
from him, thc fawns looked their protest at him with wistful eyes,, and
Lulu, thc old lynx, usually spit and
growled and otherwise protested at
taking her five kittens from thc warm
sunlight into thc dark kennel.
But the man's law was one that
must bc observed. Once animals and
birds wcrc snugly housed, let the
storm come. And it came inevitably.
The old hickory never lied. Mid-
afternoon would mark a filming of the
skies and a freshening breeze from
off the lake. By and by the sunlight
would fade to orange spray and deepen to faint purple, and above thc forest would stretch a fleecy archway of
cloud that would spread and lower,
pausing for one deep, breathless instant as though to command its forces beforc the furv bioke.
Wild storms they usually were,
with, crashing thunder and hurtling
deluge as thebarbed clouds sweej-ing
up from far Orinto Lake met those
above Tabinstoch as one opposing army meets another. Well had the man
learned that it was wise to have all
the birds and animals snugly housed
beforc the storm broke.
This morning as he passed up thc
path to the cabin there was no sign
bf storm ]n the air. It was clear
and sweet with thc nectar of -pring.
Thc skies swam with the floral-lined
���promise of a perfect day. and. far, fur.
down through the fir-wood thicket,-
"spreading for mile' upon mile.across
the upland, sounded the- voices of
happy, mating tilings.
-".But- as he passed beneath ilie old
hickory he."paused suddenly, and-lifted liis head. High,- high above him.
he heard a -sleepy .whisper,���"Swish-]'

Settlers Flocking In
Rapid Settlement of New Districts in
Settlement on an unprecedented
scale is taking place all through the
irrigated districts of southern Alberta
north from Brooks to the Empress
line and beyond, according to onc of
the new settlers. In the immdiate
vicinity of Patricia,'which is a new
town on one of the Canadian Pacific
Railway lines, 7,000 acres of irrigated
lands have been put undci- crop. The
greater part of the settlers are American, and have converted the country
into a tractor section, all the plowing
being down by tractor. Water was
turned into the irrigation ditches last
week, and irrigation will commence
at once. Therc arc 5,000 head of cattle in the district, and at Patricia two
grocery stores and four lumber yards,
hardware stores, two garages, a poolroom, barber shop and restaurant are
bcing established and a bank is coming in. Last July there was not a
settler in the district.
A Mushroom City
Murmansk Has Already Become Important As A Naval
Quite new on the map is the little
city of Murmansk, founded aftcr the
beginning of the war, and now, in thc
general taking account of stock the
world ovcr, subject to examination as
probably the greatest naval port of
Russia, when that nation becomes
normal, and the capital of a vast district containing about 60,000 or 70,000
inhabitants, a considerable number of
whom.afe refugees who are likely to
return to other parts of Russia. Meanwhile, it is difficult to imagine another
city like Murmansk, with its population of perhaps 10,000, its sunless
winter,,and its long summer days
when the sun is on visible duty
through the whole 24 hours. Situated
north of thc Arctic circle, its importance as a naval station comes from
a harbor where the ice never freezes
solidly enough to prevent navigation,
hastily connected with Pctrograd by.
rail as a means of bringing war supplies and ammunition into the country. But although there have been
said to be valuable deposits of gold,
platinum, silver and other minerals in
thc district, no investigation has yet
discovered them; nor do the investigators see any vcry promising sign
of agricultural or commercial development. Lapps and Finns arc the
normal inhabitants of the region; thc
reindeer herds serve to provide most
of- .their wants, and they barter furs
with the .occasional ��� traders -whose
vessels bring the few.things thcy need
from Hie outside world. Among .the
cities, of the] world, however, .Murmansk is an infant, and one naturally
hopes, it"will grow tip to be a good

Free Speech In
America and Russia
What Is Right In Russia Seems To
Be Wrong in United
"What's right for me is wrong for
you," argues the child. Primitive
man argued that way, and to the limit
of his ability enforced his argument
with a club. Fanatics of all stripes
still continue the argument, and they
translate it, if they gain power, into
l=v\v. The absolue suppression of free
speech, free press, and-free assemblage in Russia is revolutionary virtue;
the punishment of outright sedition
in America is vicious reactionism.
All the pro-Bolshevist writers "and
speakers are agreed; and though the
more pretentiously virtuous exponents of uplift by usurpation cloak
their meaning with euphemisms, the
niorc straight-forward advocates disdain the use of weasel words. On the
front page of the Appeal to Reason
for April 17 is an interview with Eugene V. Debs in which the argument
is stated in plain terms. "If it was
right," Debs was asked, "for Russia
to suspend free speech and free press,
was it not also right for the United
Statcs to suspend free speech in your
case during the war?" "No," replied
Debs. "The Russian revolution was
a forward step. American participation in thc war was a reactionary
step. In suppressing 111c, because I
was a revolutionist, a backward step
was taken." Naive, infantile, amusing
���what you will; but how honorably
this speech contrasts with the intellectual and ethical thimble-rigging of
thc pretentiously pious journals of
uplift!���New York Review.
Woman Trapper

Miss Eva P. Yateman, Krugers-

must write and tell you of the benefit I have received from Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills.
About four years ago I was
taken terribly bad with my
heart, nerves and fainting spells, and
was down iu bed for about six
months. I doctored with two different doctors and seemed to get better,
although the fainting spells would
not leave me. I would take such terrible falls, wherever T was, lhat it
was not safe to leave mc alone at
any time. At last I decided to resort to proprietary medicines and
took several different kinds, but
seemed to receive but little benefit
from-them. One day noticing the
advertisement of Milburn's Heart
arid Nerve Pills- I decided." to try-
llicni,- and before I had taken more
than two boxes" I-could see they were
helping mc.- I have-taken about teii
boxes, and am almost cured of those
terrible spells. I sincerely feel that,
your medicine.has proved ab'cssiiig
to] me, and I advise any one'troubled
with their heart to try them, as I ain
confident they will-find- relief.".'

Realized Sum of Eighteen Hundred
"  Dollars for. Winter Catch
As an instance of what an athletic
willing frontier woman may acconip1
lish in reducing the H. C. of L. thc
example set by Mrs. William Chamberlain, who lives some little distance
north of Invermere, British Columbia, may prove-encouraging. Finding the winter closing in, with /but
little employment on her ranch in
sight, she turned her attention to
trapping.    This on Novembsr 14.
She invested the sum of thirty dol-
-Jars in traps, and obtained a licence
for a territory of six miles in length,
stretching along the banks of the Columbia River, covering tlie overflowed
lands. Here she set her traps, some
60 in number, and she daily made her
rounds, leaving her shack at the break-
of the winter days, taking a lunch
with her, and returning after thc fall
01" night.
It was strenuous work,-but thc results proved most satisfactory for shc
laid some seven hundred niuskrats by
thc heel, to say nothing of mink and
weasel. Thc gross result of her labors has now been realized, she having stopped her work about April,
and receiving as a result of the catch
for thc season the sum of $1,800.

Not for Disarmament
The Simple Way of Guaranteeing
Peace of the World
At the Cramp yard, Philadelphia,
says Chas M. Schwab, thc United
Statcs is building the biggest warship
on record���a monster battle cruiser
1,000 feet long, 104 feet beam, and of
60,000 tons displacement. Twelve 16-
inch guns will constitute its main
batteries, and ils speed will be greatei-
by ten miles an hour than that of thc
Lusitania. The construction'will cost
$50,000,000. Mr. Schwab looks forward to the building of a flotilla of
such vessels.
And thc words in which he predicts
and justifies more numerous and
linger battleships have an ominious
familiar ring. Wc havc heard thcm.
beforc; wc havc heard them, if our
memories fail not, long beforc thc

ships," says Mr. Schwab, "w.iil bc a

' Largc Shipments, of Alberta Wheat
And Oats Go To The
JUnited States
Wheat valued at more   than    one
million dollars has been shipped from
the. province of Alberta to the United
Statcs and chiefly  to   the   ���state   of
Montana from January 1, to April 30,
1920, states S. C Reat, United States
consul at Calgary, Alberta.    During
the same period more than] one million bushels of oats were also shipped
across the line.
Most of the wheat.,-was; "shipped
across during January and February
and the highest price paid was $3.23
a-bushel, while the average was $3.06.
Oats averaged 60 cents a bushel and
oj one shipment $1.05 was paid. The
largc. shipments of wheat during the
first part of tlic year were caused b>
the lifting of the embargo on wheat
in the United Statcs on December 15
The demand for oats, especially in
Montana, created a good price, and
that, .together with the exchange, situation, were big factors in increased
shipments of oats.
During lhc first four months of the
year, a total of 374/130 bushels of
wheat, valued at $1,157,562.82 were
shipped into the United Statcs from
Alberta, as compared with 30,985
bushels valued at $76,040.81 during
(lie'last quarter of 1919. The fact
that the embargo was not lifted until
December 15 must be Taken into consideration in comparing the two periods.- A' total of 1,131,090 bushels of
oats valued at $674,319.53 were shipped out during the first quarter of
tiiis year, as compared with 77,985
bushels, valued at $58,210.99 for thc
i last four months of 1919.

of 13 cars, has started on a five weeks
tour. jThe train was made up by the
Saskatchewan. College of Agriculture,
the Saskatchewan departments of
agriculture and education and the
[Canadian Pacific railway. By their
joint efforts undoubtedly this train
is better equipped and arranged for
its purposes than any during the five
years since these trains were started.
All the cars, with every available inch
utilized, are filled with demonstration
material of a most, interesting nature
and valuable for instructional purposes. F. H. Auld, deputy minister of
agriculture, followed by Capt. Thos.
Acheson, of'the railway" company's
agricultural department, opened proceedings. ��� Officials on the train anticipate a highly successful tour and hope
to accomplish much good.

American Doughboy Who Refused to
Bc Counted Out
If you are going to die do it with
your boots on, advises the Mystic
Worker. A young doughboy was
brought in from the field to the hospital. He was a splendid specimen
of American manhood. The army surgeon examined his wounds, shook his
head and sought the chaplain.
"The boy cannot" live," he said,
"and,I think it best that you tell him
Thc chaplain went to the doughboy's bed, leaned ovcr and whispered:
"Doc is a little discouraged, Buddy,
Doesn't think there's much of a
chance. Is there' anything'I could do
for you, old man?"
"You 'mean I,am going West?" thc
boy weakly asked.
"But he didn't say how soon, you
know. Probably���is.tlicrc some word
you want sent by nic personally?
You know ��� I'd do it. Isn't there
something I could do for you?"
, The boy understood. . He- pointed
to his coat, and said, between painful
breaths:    .>
"My inside pocket."
The chaplain got the coal, felt tlic
inside pocket and extracted a pocket-
book. When he held it up the boy
"Open it," he said.   .
The chaplain, found it contained a
ten dollar bill.
��� "What   shall   I   do   with   it?"   he
asked. ' .
The "boy smiled grimly as hc
answered. . "      . .
"Bet you ten dollars that 1 don't
die!":--  ���������     '��� ' '   ��� -'-    ���-

Ncw York Financial Houses Invest.
igatc Lethbridge Irrigation
Investigation of the Lethbridge
Northern Irrigation Project by two
Ncw York financial houses of high
standing, will be undertaken in thc
immediate future with a view to purchasing the bonds of the irrigation
district, it was asserted by L. M.
Roberts, a leading barrister, on his
return to Calgary from Ncw York.
Mr. Robcrts,~who somc time ago obtained an open option "for thc purchase* of the bonds, went to New
York in this 'connection. He anticipates that thc inquiry into the irrigation undertaking by engineers scut
out by the financial houses will take
place in June. Thc terms of his option are not such as to interfere with
the right of the irrigation district to
make any other arrangements for thc
sale of.the bonds which they may
desire, and in the event of a definite
offer being made the district will
havc the right to accept or refuse.
Strangers to Truth
The preacher announced 'that next
Sunday his subject would be "Liars"
and  that  he  would  be  very  glad  if
during the week, they would read the
17th chapter of Romans for themselves.
The next Sunday the preacher commenced by reminding his hearers of
the request he had made, and asked
all those who had read the 17th chapter of Tlomans to stand up. To "his
astonishment half the congregation
stood up.
"Thank you very much" said the
preacher, "now it is to you I want to
speak today, because there is no 17th
chapter of Romans!"

Fathers of Our Farms Must Remember the Young Man's
Needs '
How shocking the facts would appear if we only had the statistics ori
how many young men have left the
farms because their fathers drove
them off! They just could not stand
it any longer with their dads.
A study oi this side (of thc question
of rural depopulation would bc illuminating. It is tragic what narrow-
niindedncss, bigotry, and prejudice,
lack of vision, lack of appreciation,
lack of sympathy and lack of praise
and encouragement have done and
will yet do in robbing the farms of
their virile best young blood.
Surely the fathers of our farms'
must learn anew and remember the
young man's needs���rcal and imagined���and his point of view; and give
and get in return thc requisite confidence, comradeship and understanding. Otherwise theirs is. the loss���

Edmonton Apiarist Proves That Bee-
Keeping is Profitable
Bees have proved themselves not
only adaptable to the climate of
Western Canada, but very profitable
to raise as a side Hue, aud as an
example of this, the experience of Mr.
William Wensel, of Edmonton, may
be given. Mr. Wensel has been keeping bees for the last six ycars. The
returns he has obtained from them go
to show that they can be reared
economically, and that the honey produced is. fully equal to any of thc imported variety.
Mr. Wensel started with a foundation swarm of mixed bees. By using
only well bred queens, which-he imported from Tennessee, he managed,
within a few years to so improve his
swarm that, hc had an almost pure
strain of Italian bees. He keeps from
ten to fifteen hives of bees, disposing
of the increase in the spring or fall.
From  the standpoint of profit and
prolificncss, bees can hardly bc equalled by any other member of the animal or insect family producing food
for    human    consumption.      In    the
spring of 1918 Mr. Wensel had nine
hives,  three  of which  were  in very
poor conditipn.    During the summer
thc nine  hives  increased  to  21,  and
honey''produced, less the amount left
for winter'' feed,  was -eight  hundred
and- twenty-seven pounds'.  -.The,.honey,; sells.-"at from 35  to. 40 cents per

Vanderhoof Has A Future
Bright Prospects Ahead of the Ne-
chacko  Valley District
A thriving British Columbia town
that has a very bright future before
it is Vanderhoof. Situated in the
Nechacko Valley on the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway, midway between
Edmonton and Prince Rupert, it is
the centre of a fine agricultural district, eminently suitable for mixed
farming. The soil in the Vanderhoof
district is almost inexhaustible and is
easy to clear. The land in the Nechacko Valley produces wonderful
crops of grain and timothy hay, as
well as fine vegetables. "Settlers are
fast filling up the country, and the
Soldiers' Settlement Board has placed
a number of returned men on the
land. The government is establishing a crcamc.iy at Vanderhoof, and
undoubtedly it will become theicentrc
of a great dairying district. Much of
the land is suitable for steam plowing
and the. timbered area furnishes good
shelter for $tock. Sheep raising and
mixed farming- generally will prove
very profitable.
There is fine fishing and good'hunting close at hand, mineral wealth in
the district, and a pleasant and mild

difference in-oneinan's figures. C. D.
Walcott considered 70,000,000 as thc
maximum age. - George H. Darwin
has discussed.' ihe age of the earth
from a purely astronomical point of

of more than 56,000,000 years.

Love in the Home
here is abundant reason for
rvlug upon the home circle, rich
>:r poor, the culture of love, without which no true home culture
can exist. How can it be done?
First, be willing to show the love
tbat already exists* It is like a
plant with shriveled, drooping
leaves. Bring it out into the light;
show it; put it in the warmth of
the sua. Is the husband and
father silent, gloomy, withdrawn
into himself, brooding, perhaps,
over the fact that, no matter how
hard he tries, he never can meet
the family demands? Show him
that you know he is tired, that you
love him for his constant effort,
that you. love him the same,even if
he has failed to do all he has
hoped. Show him how well and
cheerfully you can get on with a
little for this time, sure that the
next time he will succeed,. If you
are. his daughter, and have acquired the habit of thinking of him
chiefly as the man from, whom the
money comes for , the things you
need, get out- of. that relation by
planning to do something for him.
Has -your mother being in the
habit of reminding, him that your
birthday was at hand? .Find out
his birthday, and begin to plan for
���that���'a little gift from every child
'.���a song,sung, for father._a little
speech.froiii his little son; a.little
fun in .,which 'you , coax him to
share���it may. mean .a new life to
.him, becaese it means a new.-sense
of how truly, you love and; believe,
ih him..-\Whenjit comes ;td showing the dear mother how,.yoa love
her, be sure you get father-;to . help
; in planning.the good, time for her.

Thousands of gallons of benzol,
a by-product of coke, fire now being used for motor fuel. While
being much more combustible than
gasoline, benzol has not as yet
reached the highest stage of refinement, and present < results are best
when it is mixed in equal proportions with gasoline. Heat and
cold also have a totally different
effect upon it than upon gasoline.
Ford chemical laboratories, however, are doing a great deal of experimenting and soon hope to be
able to refine it eo as it can be
used alone and under all conditions. Of course, its chief effectiveness comes from its high com-
bustive power which . is between
12 and 15 per cent greater than
gasoline. Ford officials state there
is no possibility of benzol ever displacing gasoline as a moter fuel,
since it is a by-product of coke and
therefore obtainable only in limited
