Armistice Day
and- Thanksgiving
A misleading item is going the
rounds of the press to the effect
that Armistice Day, Nov. 11th was
made a legal holiday by legislation
at the last session of parliament.
What this legislation provides is
that Armistice Day and Thanksgiving Days are to be observed on
the same date, which is made a
legal holiday. The dnal holiday is
to be on Nov. 11th when that date
is Monday, otherwise it; is to be
Monday of the week in which it
occurs. This year Nov. 11th is
Friday, so Armistice Day and
Thanksgiving Day will be celebrated on Monday, Nov. 7th.

New Colonization Policy
Victoria, Oct. 26.���Hon.   T.  D.
Pattullo, minister of lands,  speaking in the Legislature, announced
that the Government was abont ,to
inaugerate a comprehensvie colonization policy, looking to the settlement of selected settlers  oh the
vacant lands of British Columbia,
particularly those in  the valleys
along  the  Grand   Trunk   Pacific
Railway and in the irrigation districts.   The minister, who returned
recently from  Great Britain and
other  European   countries,    said
there was a marked increase in the
interest being taken in   Western
Canada and he hoped to take advantage of the situation to secure a
number of the better class citizens.
-The government controls some
2,000,000 acres of  the finest  land
along the Canadian National lines,
lands which reverted to the crown
under tbe proportionate allotment
legislation of 1916.   Some of these
lands have been reserved for sale
until such time as the government
saw its way   clear   to   commence
colonization work in earnest.   Several hundred thousand 7 acres are in
the   Stuart   Lake   district,   lands
lightly timbered in places and eminently suited for agricultural purposes.   It is expected  that some
form of progressive  loan   system
will be worked out to assist the
newcomers.   -The  settlers   to   be
selected  will   come   mostly   from
Great Britain and each will be expected to bave sufficient capital to
make first payments on the land
and secure sufficient, equipment to
make a good start.
City Council
When a certain young lady
read the headline in a daily paper
last week,- "Fifteen_miilion"girls
in Europe looking for husbands,"
exclaimed "Goodness, 1 hope
they don't extend their search
here, there is too much opposition already."
A despatch to the Nelson News
from Rock Creek says: "Arrangements are being made for
several cars to take parties to the
Annual G. W. V. A. Masquerade
Ball in Greenwood on,Nov, 11,
quite a number also intend going
by train on that date.
Major W. D. S. Rorison, of
Victoria, visited Greenwood on
Friday and Saturday for the purpose of organizing the Boy Scouts
in this town. Mr. Rorison is
touring the province ia the interest of the Boy Scouts and where-
ever he has gone has , met with
enthusiastic receptions. On Friday evening a few interested gentlemen , met Mr. Rorison at the
home of Mr. McCurrach and Mr.
Rorison explained the aims and
objects of the Boy Scouts. It
is quite likely that the Boy Scouts
will be organized here provided a
sufficient number of the older
generation will take the matter
ia hand., Boy Scouts are put on
their honor to obey the laws of
the order and always to act according to the teachings of this great
organization. A meeting of the
citizens will be held ia the Board
of Trade rooms on Thursday at
S p.m."to discuss this matter.

Canada Needs Population
Although the results of the census of Canada taken .iu June last have not
yet been officially announced, sufficient information is available to establish
the fact that ihe figures of population a.re going to prove highly disappointing
to those people who, basing their calculations on tlie yearly return of immigrants entering the Dominion, had expectations of seeing a very substantial
increase in the number of people in Canada.
Kadi recurring decennial census in Canada brings the same disappointment. Between one census and the next, hundreds oi thousands" ygs, millions of immigrants are reported as having entered tlie Dominion. The vital
statistics likewise report ihe fact that the number of births exceed deaths
by many more hundreds of thousands. Yet when the census is taken the
people which are supposed to he here, and presumably ought to be here, are
not in evidence. They came here but ihey have disappeared. The question
which demands an answer is: Where have they gone, and why.?
The Canadian Council of Agriculture, which has been giving some study
to this problem, in a .statement recently made public, points out, that, according to the returns of the Department of Immigration, no less than. l,Si^,S3G
immigrants came to this couutry between April 1, 1011, and .March SI, 1021.
which corresponds with the census period; also that during this same period
births in Canada, exceeded deaths by 1,1-10,000. Jn other words, that from
these two sources there should bc an increase in Canada's population of
i'.952,S3G, which would bring the 19.11 census of population of 7,20(5,613 up to
10,159,171) in 1921. As a matter of fact it is now confidently predicted that
the census of 1921 will not show nine million people, and possibly not. many
more than S,500,000..
On all sides the statement is heard that Canada needs'a larger population:
that the future of its railways, the ability to carry and ultimately pay. off
the huge national debt, depends upon the development of it's natural resources, and that such development' can only be brought about by a largo
influx of people to do the necessary work. The need for a strong, aggressive
immigration policy is, therefore, urged. True, there are a few voices raised
in opposition to such a policy, but they are in a minority.        o .,
The writer of this column agrees that such an immigration policy is
necessary, ami that Canada's efforts to secure settlers of the right, type should
not be spasmodic, but permanent, well organized and continuous. But iu
the light of past immigration returns, reports of vital statistics, and census
���takings, it is apparent that something more than getting people to come io
Canada is needed. The adoption of policies that uwill- keep them here seems
to be required above everything else[
If Canada cannot retain its native-born sens and daughters it is idle to
expect new people to come and stay here. Clearly there is something wrong
somewhere. If our native-born had remained at home, and if we had retained thc large percentage of incoming immigrants during thc past Quarter of a,
century, Canada's population today would be double what it is, and, like
compound interest, the future increase would be rapid.
Party politics can find no place for discussion in this column. There
are plenty of forums for the discussion of such politics, but this is not one of
them. But policies in the broad meaning of the terra���that is, the science
and business of government as distinct from party organization, shibboloths
and particular policies���have a proper place here. In fact, no good citizen
or true patriot can properly neglect them.
It is our conviction, then, that while Canada does need the most wideawake, progressive and.aggressive immigration policy ihat can possibly be.de-.
vised, and that full advantage should.now'be taken of tlie opportunity which
presents itself throughout" the',"world owing to the desire of millions of people-
to emigrate from ihe old world, countries, the first .step, in..the framing of
Canada's immigration policy should be a determination.of the'causes of the
drift of people'away' from Canada, native-born and immigrants. ��� ;
7 There.is a cause for .it, or-a "combination of causes. - The;eause-should-
bc ascertainable, and once ascertained it ought to, bo. possible to -apply .-a'
.remedy arid remove .tho cause. "Every manufacturer;, financier, -railway-
operator, .merchant, professional man,*.artizan and'farmer is interested, and
vitally interested-in-this-problem. The application of, thc needed'remedy'
- might upset' many preconceived ideas and destroy long accepted aiid' time-
honored policies. - "But what-of it,-if-those ideas and policies-are the cause
"of Canada's Joss? - - '.""-- '-���   '. ,.     -'- ���'   ���/.'"���������   .'."".
Suppose some'cherished policy of ihe manufacturers-on the one ���hand,- or
-the farmers on the other hand, had to go by-the hoard, would they-not both
'be-the gainers by adding millions to tlie population?-' Imagine what it. would
mean, to Canada's manufacturers today if all" the immigrants and native-born
between 1911 and' 1921. were in Canada, now.   . What- a' domestic market iu
which to sell their goods.1-.   And what a relief in taxation,.and in improved
-facilities for tlie farmer would, result if the Dominion's population, was. between "ten and fifteen millions instead of less than nine millions! -

How To Be Popular
Giving Pleasure and Being Cheerful is
Great Secret.
Learn to laugh, a good laugh is better than medicine.
Learn how to tell a story; a good
story, well told, is as welcome as a
sunbeam in a sick-room.
Learn to keep your own troubles to
yourself; the world is too busy to care
for your ills and sorrows.
Learn to stop croaking; if you cannot see any good in thc world, keep
the bad to yourself.
Learn to hide your aches and pains
under pleasant smiles; no one cares
to hear whether you have headaches,
earaches, or rheumatism.
Learn to meet your friends with a
smile; a good-humored man or woman
is always welcome, but the dyspeptic
is not wanted anywhere.
Above all, give pleasure: lose no
chance of giving pleasure.
You will pass through this world
but once.
Any good thing, therefore, that you
can do, or any kindness that you can
show to any human being, you had
better do it now; do not defer or neglect ir.
For you will not pass this way
again.
Alberta's Grain Capacity
Large Storage Elevators Are Found in
' Many Towns.
The average grain capacity per station for the whole of the Province of
Alberta amounts to over 110,000 bushels, as compared with S9.000 bushels
for Saskatchewan, and 58,000 bushels
for Manitoba.      The largest  country
storage elevator is at Vegreville,' Alberta, with a capacity of 475,000 bushels, although Verigin in Saskatchewan runs a good second with a capacity    of    110,000    bushels.      Alberta
j towns  are  uniformly    possessed    of
; large  storage  facilities;   Youugstowu
! has space for 384,000 bushels, Barons
1373,000   bushels,   Carmangay   320,000

As a lawyer, the late .'fudge Rentoul
was a great advocate of simple and
unambiguous language, and deprecated the use of court, jargon and technicalities, which only tended to confuse
witnesses. To illustrate how desirable was tbe use of clear and simple
language, lie tells the following iu his
reminiscences, which were recently
published under the title, of "Stray
Thoughts and Memories": "A judge
once said to a witness, ''Your testimony is very dillicult to understand.
You should not deal so much in ambiguities'; "whereupon the witness,
who happened to be a horsedealer, in-
dignautly replied: 'My lord, I never
owned an ambiguity in my life: ail my
horses are thoroughbreds.'" A parallel story to tho one he tells of the
lady who, after the passing of the.

"Brown, do you wish to exercise the

Question. "Which 'oss is that, ma'am "

Experts Say It Presents Few
gineering Difficulties.
Contracts have been let for tlie con-
struction of the United Irrigation district, which when completed will
make possible the irrigation of about
fifteen thousand acres of fertile farm
lands about forty miles southwest of
Lethbridge. Irrigation experts who
have been over this district say they
have never met with any scheme of
its size that presents fewer engineering difficulties. - It is hoped to have
the works completed in time for the
irrigation of 1923.

-..What is "so delicious as the seasonable oyster? The average housewife
knows how to serve the oysters raw,
fried, or in stew, but have you ever
thought what an addition a few oysters are to the food lacking in flavor?
Take, for instance, macaroni. Just
wlien the family is beginning to lose
proper appreciation of so nourishing
a food tis macaroni, try serving this
dish: Strain a dozen oysters from
their liquor. Place the oysters in a
strainer and rinse with half a cup of
cold water. The use of much water
'will tend to wash away the delicate
flavor for which the oyster is highly
prized. Put the liquor into a cook
pot and add enough water to make
about a quart and a half of liquid in
all.
When boiling, gently lower into it
about a measuring cup of macaroni
'broken into inch pieces, taking care
not to add the macaroni fast enough
to stop boiling. Add two level teaspoons of salt.: Cook' until the
macaroni is tender���about --.twenty
minutes���adding extra water if there
seemsdariger of burning.
Brain the macaroni and measure
tlie liquid. There should not be much
of this. If there is more than half
a measuring cup evaporate somewhat
by boiling. Then add rich milk to���
make a cup and a half in all. Rub
together two level tablespoons butter
with one level tablespoon of flour.
Add half a teaspoon of salt and a few-
grains of cayenne or a more generous
quantity of paprika or black pepper.
Cook this in the milk mixture, stirring
constantly until it boils. ' ��� -"
... Butter a" baking dish,: several small
ramekins or- some large clam shells.
Arrange a: layer of macaroni,' a few
oysters, -either whole or chopped, arid
then a, little of the. thickened -milk:
Repeat the layers until the dish'is.filled and. all the. material is used. Cover with buttered- crumbs and place in
a moderate oven until the.crumbs are
a delicate brown. .-_���.-
-.Folks'-in inland towns may indulge
iii oysters even when they are not in
season, because they always have ac-'
cess, to oysters.which the- manufacturer tells "us are canned, the day-they

WHAT TO DO FOR
STOMACPROUBLE
Good Advice From One Who Had,
Suffered Much.       .
Nine-tenths of all forms of indigestion or so-called stomach, trouble are
not due to the condition of the stomach at'all, but are caused by other influences. The great contributing
cause of indigestion is thin blood.
Good blood and plenty of it is required by the stomach to take care of the
food. ' If the blood is thin the stomach functions sluggish, food lies undigested, gas forms and causes pains in
various parts of the body. Instead
of getting nourishment from the blood
the system gets poison.
Relief from this condition can be obtained by the tonic treatment which
Mr. D. Shaw, Mt. Stewart, P.E.I., tried
and now warmly recommends '.toothers. ' Mr. Shaw says: "I suffered
from indigestion for over four years,
and have tried many of the well-
known remedies for such troubles, b.y.t
never obtained more-than temporary
relief. The trouble Avas aggravated
by constipation setting in owing to
the stomach failing to do its work,,
and laxatives only gave relief J;o the
bowels and left the stomach in worse
condition. The result was my blood
was-growing more and more anaemic,
I did not sleep well at night and was
growing despondent. I was fn this
wretched condition when a friend advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I got three boxes and by the
time they were finished there- was
some change for. the belter. - This
greatly encouraged me and I continued taking the pills for some three
months, by which time my stomach
was ,all right again, my blood good,
nerves strong and . life was again'
worth living.,- -My advice to all who
suffer from stomach trouble is to give
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills afair trial."
-, Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ,can be ott-
tained'through any medicine dealer, or
bv mail at 50 cents a box or- six boxes
for ?2.50 from The Dr."Williams" Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont..

Curing Plant Diseases
�������� ���
Experts Have Been Secured to. Experiment With Methods.
The increase in the -world's store Qf
food has become since the war a most
pressing problem. Men of science
have realized for many years that the
quantity of vegetable food actually
produced could be multiplied if plants
were protected from fungus and parasites of all kinds. A similar, state of
affairs exists in connection with plants
which have a commercial value. The
British\ Government has, . therefore,
decided to establish an Imperial Bureau which will make a close investigation of plant diseases, and experiment with methods of preventing or
curing them. The services . of 7the
.highest experts have been secured for
this bureau, and the work it is expected to accomplish will be of great benefit not only to the British Empire but
to the world at large.

His temperament is southern, inasmuch as his ideal holiday is to get .as

avoid it, and it is understood that since

unless baby's little stomach is kept
right tlie result may be serious. There
is nothing to equal Baby's Own Tablets in keeping the little ones well.
They sweeten the stomach, regulate
the bowels, break up colds and make

it was wrong to help a Government

his living by breaking stones.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
LESSON FOR OCTOBER 30.
STRONG   DRINK   IN   A   NATION'S
LIFE���WORLD'S TEMPERANCE   ,
SUNDAY.
I. God's Judgment Upon Israel  (vv.
1-4).
1. The sin for which Israel was
judged (v. 1-. It was drunkenness,
which seems to have been a national
sin. (See Is'a. 5:11, 12; 7:5 ; Amos
2:6,8,12; 4:1; 6,6). Samaria's position was an enviable one. The whole
nation' was proud of tier. The crown
of pride whose glorious beauty had
been^so marked was fading through
the blighting effects of drunkenness.
2. The instrument by which the
punishment was effected (v. 2). It
was to be by the strong hand of the
Assyrians.. - The imagery of this verse
shows that this destruction was to be
sudden, swift and irresistible.
(a) Strength is wasted by it (v. 1).
"Are overcome with wine." Man's
manifold strength, physical, mental
and spiritual,' is soon mastered by
strong drink. (b) Honor brought
into the dust. "Shall be trodden under feet" (vv. 1, 3). Just as this
proud city was humbled through intemperance, so does drunkenness
bring down into the dust- those high in
educational, social and business circles, (c) It despoils beauty (vv. 1,
4). "Beauty is a fading flower."
Beauty soon departs from the form
and spirit of men and women who indulge in the intoxicating cup. ... (d)
Wisdom is'turned aside (v. 7). "They
have erred -through wine and strong
drink." As a consequence they were
groping in darkness instead of walking in the light of the Lord.
II. The Lord's Promise to the Rem
nant (vv. 5, 6).-
Out of this awful dark'nesa shines
a ray of brightness, for following the
destruction of the proud city the Lord
of Hosts is promised for a crown of
glory to the remnant of His people.
This pointed forward to the coming
of. the Savior (Zech. 6:13).._ Their
hopes were, partially fulfilled at the
first coming of the Savior, but the
real fulfillment shall be when drunkenness, pride and,all unrighteousness
shall disappear before the glaring
light of the Sun'of Righteousness
(Mai. 5:2; I. Pet. 5:4-).
II. The Sinfulness of Judah (vv. 7-10).
1. Drunkenness (y. 7). Judah had
also erred through strong drink. Even
their priests and prophets had fallen
through the blighting effects of wine.
It was a violation of God's law for a
priest to take wine before entering
the tabernacle. The drunkards of
both Judah and Ephrain aro denounced. The message is a fitting
one for this day, for the Scriptures declare that.no drunkard shall enter the
kingdom (I. Cor. 5:11; 6:10).
2. Unnamable filth (v. 8). This description shows a condition which is
deplorable indeed. Filth and drunkenness go".hand in hand.   .
3. Mockery (vv. 9, 10). In addition
to their .drunkenness and filth they
scornfully mock God's prophets. These
priests had become so hardened by
their drunken debauchery that they
set at naught Isaiah's . instructions
and scorned God's messengers. They
questioned their authority, and gave
back ,the answer of- ridicule as if to
"say, "We" are teachers," what do you
"Are.we babes
You
come to. us-with your line upon line,
line-upon line." ' They were not only
unwilling'!to receive, the, message, but
tired of the, way in which it was delivered. ' Not being willing to receive
the:: ...message,- -they...complain of- the
manner in which it is delivered. The
doctrine of salvation by blood alone
is hot a very popular one;'the preaching of the cross is foolishness to some
(i.. Cor. 1:18:21-;''2:14).
IV." Judah's Punishment (yv.--ll-13).
The prophet replies to these drunken " scoffers that their" very drunken
questions should be. answered by the
Lord in judgment: God had repeatedly offered them-rest;'--but they had
as repeatedly refused it. Their scorn
and' contempt are answered with the
bitterest sarcasm. - Thc bloody conqueror..would corne upon them and
cause them to be' snared and taken.   ,

Identifying Houses
By Numbers
Simple Device Not Thought of Until
Eighteenth Century.
Numbering the houses or shops in
a street as a means of identifying
them seems a very simple device; but
nobody thought of it until well on in
the eighteenth' century. Until then
they got on as well as they could
with signs, and in London strets, like
Cheapside, every shopkeeper tried to
undo his rivals in the size and grandeur of his signboard. They projected over the street, and every now

Pkorably few people have'any
it!en of the big place the lowly hog
holds in the making of Canada's
prosperity. It is acknowledged by
leading agriculturists that live
stock production is the key to successful farming.
The present Canadian House of
Commons consists of 234. members,
��� divided among provinces as follows:
Ontario 82, Quebec Go, Nova
Scotia 1G, Saskatchewan 10, Manitoba 15, British Columbia 13,-
Alberta 12, New Brunswick 11,
Prince Edward Island 3,  Yukon 1.
We were' a little surprised the
other day to find one hundred
dollars on the road beside a fence
at the corner of a farmer's house
aud more so that it had lain for
several weeks unmolested and was
beginning to look much the worse
for exposure. The money was in
the shape of a mowing machine,
which will havo to be.replaced by
a new- one before* another season,'
unless cared for better. - If. we had
. the money that is lost every year
by neglect of farm, machinery, we
would not be running a newspaper.
Very' few boys today are learning trades, and the question that
is facing . employees is who will
1;ake7 tho place, of the carpenters,
masons, painters, plumbers and
other tradesmen.of the present day
when in the coarse of a few years
/they will retire from the present
field? One/result will be that the
public will.haye to put up with a
great deal bf, indifferent work.
Another. will. be that the young
man, who,; differing from. his. f el -

trade will beiri great demand and

There is no limit to the country
newspaper's altruism. It keeps so
busy doing things for other people
that it has precious little time to
do anything for itself. It is able
to dig in and help many a local
concern weather the storms of adversity, but when the cost of getting out a paper was prohibitive
the country newspapers were dying
like flies, nobody took the tiouble
to reciprocate.
The country newspaper ought to
be allowed at least a week in
which to do something for it-self.
Possibly even two weeks.���Spokesman Review.

H. W. C. Jackson, of Spokane,
was in Greenwood this week-an<1
while hero inspected some mining
property.
The stamp and miuing machinery of the Lemon mine near Camp
McKinney has been shipped to the
Emancipation mine near Hope.
"A revival of miuing industry
iu this district, in the neighborhood of the Stemwinder and other
mines which were the subjects of
much interest in mining circles
some twenty or thirty years ago,
now appears to be well within the
realms of the probable. For some
weeks past there has been a persistently recurring rumor that the
Guggenheims had become interested in some properties in the neighborhood, and that they would prospect some of these as soon as
diamond drills could be brought in
from the outside. Your, corres-
pondent is now in a position to
state'that one drilling outfit is already-on the ground and will be in
active operation within a few days,
This is on. the Federal, claim, a
short distance in a northerly direc-
tion fromV the., old Stemwinder
workings. . The outfit is in charge
of Mr. Dan Lynch, who. is well
known in mining, circles as an experienced; diamond drill, operator..
The Britannia " Mine, / Copper
Mountain, aud the Greenwood and
Phoeuix districts are known to
have been some few of the scenes
of his mining, activities, which extend over, a period of thirty years
or more.. His outfit is under direction of the Guggenheim interests.

���" What we have to decide is this���Are we going to continue the protective
system of this country or are we not ? That is the question and that is
the whole question. And the great, big, necessary thing is that eyery voter
in this country from the Yukon to Halifax knows that this is the question
he or she is deciding when he or she votes in this great contest."
���ARTHUR MEIGHEN
THE vital issue in the coming election���
in fact, the only issue���is the Tariff,
and to every clear thinking Canadian
it should be readily apparent that a Protective Fiscal Policy is absolutely essential
to stability, progress and development.
Every important country iri the world
upholds Protection as an essential economic principle. Even Great Britain���so
long the stronghold of Free Trade���has
now adopted laws that constitute Protection of the most effective kind. In fact,
the present policy among most nations is
towards raising their tariff walls, not lowering them. In the face of these facts it
would be suicidal for Canada to do exactly
the reverse and discard the fiscal system
which has been responsible for its progress
during the past forty-three years.
Free Trade would mean death to Canadian Industry. It would also result in
the immediate closing down of Canadian
plants of foreign firms, with consequent
additional unemployment. There are to-day
650 American factories alone in Canada.
" Similar proposed ventures would be abandoned.    New capital would refuse to come
to a Country lacking adequate protection
and present industrial enterprise would be
promptly strangled by foreign competition.
The preservation of the home market by a
Reasonable Protective Tariff ia vital to
both city dweller and agrarian alike���now
as never before. More capital is urgently
needed for the development of Canada's
enormous resources, which will result in
a lessening of unemployment and an increased population. More work and more
workers will produce an enlarged home
market for products of both city and farm,
and the exodus of Canadian men and
women���and the dollars they earn���will
be precluded.
The United States has slammed her trade
door in the face of Canadian farmers by
adopting the Fordney Bill, and the farmer
is consequently now even more dependent
upon the home market than in the past.
Yet Crerar asks you to destroy that home
market by voting for Free Trade.
King's policy���if he has one���will result
in the destruction of the Tariff.
Meighen stands four square for Reasonable Protection���Protection for all
the people���and asks, for an overwhelming mandate to give both industry
and agriculture that assurance which will spell prosperity for all. Individual prosperity depends upon National prosperity. Your personal interests
and Canada's very existence hang upon your vote.
