This district is one of the few
11 places that has not erected a fitting public memorial to the young
men who went to the great war
and who never returned. It has
been a question of some comment
but it has not been through lack
of indifference so much as lack of
leadership. Some schools have
set up fitting tablets and a number of lodges have suitable engravings. But no definite action
has been taken with respect to a
public memorial to the honor of
those who died in the war.
The United Farmers of this
district have taken up the matter.
We believe that the people of this
district would heartily endorse a
memorial and assist in every way
to urge forward its erection.
We are not concerned as to, the
form of the memorial. In a sense
there may be advantage in seeming delay, in that a general survey may be made of the memorials- already set up in other
places, which would assist in
making a choice for this district.
The scheme, we are confident,
simply needs leadership or direction to put it through. Everyone should be given an opportunity to contribute. It, should
be a free will offering. We have
assurance that everyone would
respond, many are awaiting the
Let us be concerned in this and
set up a mark that will do honor
to the memory of those men of
the district .who gave their lives
in the great war, lest their names
be not remembered, though their
concerted deeds will live on
through the ages. -

Go-Operative Wheat Pools
With the abolition of tho Wheat Board created under the stress of war
conditions for the marketing of the wheat crop of Canada, and the unsettled
state of world markets since then* the problem of marketing the wheat of
this Dominion so as to bring- an adequate return to tiie wheat growers has become more and more acute. Steps taken to revive the Wheat Board under
peace conditions in 1922 and 1023 having ended in failure, despite all the efforts of the Western Provincial. Governments, the fanners themselves are
liow engaged in the really formidable task of endeavoring to create co-operative pools to act as selling agents for all wheat consigned to them, the idea
being that once these pools are successfully launched a joint selling organization will be set tip to handle tlie export end of the business.
Thc first essential to the success of this new method of market ing is that

In 1922 there was manufactured in
I Canada 147,752,774  pounds of cream-

shall by signed contract, bind themselves to deliver all the wheat grown by I Bowels While You Sleep I ing 1922, 136,579,473 pounds of cheese
them to the pool for a period of five years, and accept in payment therefor
the average juice realized in each selling season.
In a word, the proposal is that, instead of each farmer selling his wheat
individually, fifty per cent, of thorn or more shall sell collectively. The sniall,
pioneer farmer with only a few loads to sell, and the farmer having heavy
liabilities to meet and who i.s therefore compelled to sell immdiately his wheat
is threshed, is to be placed as nearly as possible on a basis of equality insofar
as marketing is concerned with the large and well established farmer shipping wheat by the carload and who, by reason of his established position and
credit, can choose the time of selling as prevailing market prices may dictate
as being the most advantageous time to sell.
Under the plan proposed, instead of an enormous volume of wheat being
thrown on the market under pressure by a large number of farmers early in
thc season, thus forcing down the price, the wheat will all pass through a
co-operative pool and be handled by it so as not to "break" prices, and thus
obtain the highest possible average price for all.
Whether this, pooling arrangement will realize for the farmers all ihat
is claimed for it is, of course, open to question. Tltere are many who are
skeptical, but unquestionably tho Vast majority of wheat growers, with the
experience of the last few years fresh in their minds, are of the opinion that
marketing conditions and price cannot be any worse than they have been, with
the chances that they will be considerably improved under the pooling system.
There is, too, in some quarters objection to the binding nature of the
contract stipulating that all wheat grown for a period of five years mii'st\ be
turned into the pool. However, those among the farmers most experienced
in the business, and practically all the leaders in the farmers' movement and
organizations'are convinced after long study that a "contract" is an essential
feature to success, and that a reasonable length of time is required to demonstrate the feasibility and success of the scheme. And inasmuch as those
responsible for the management of the pool and the selling of the wheat must
be in a position to make binding contracts with purchasers for given quantities of wheat, it stands to reason that,.on their part, they must be protected
by equally binding contracts for the delivery of wheat to them wherewith to
fill such contracts.     It is, therefore, a straight matter of business.
Under the proposed contract between the individual farmer and the pool, it
is stipulated that the contract becomes binding and the pool becomes operative
only in the event of at least fifty per cent, of the farmers signing up.     And
the signatures  of this fifty per cent, must be obtained to contracts in the
course of a few weeks it the pools in the various provinces are to become
operaiiye this year.    There is, thqrefore,-;no lime to be lost on the part, of all
farmers, business, men,'and others,' wlloVbelibve"that this new method of mar-
��� koling gives promise of.success and a betterment to'agricultural'.conditions

Old Country Paper,. Says Banking
System in Canada is Sound
The London Times says the suspension of payments by the Home Bank
of Canada, is an indication of the difficulties that beset the banking business in the Dominion in recent years.
Such an announcement as Lhe suspension of the Homo Bank, however, is
not surprising, the Times continues,
when the conditions which havc prevailed in Canada during the last nine
years are considered.
"Thanks to the admirable banking
system obtaining in Canada," says the
Times, "lhe troubles there have been
restricted and confined in area and it
is evident that the leading banks in
the Dominion will come throqgh the
trial in a thoroughly successful mariner. Banking is subject-to conditions
that apply to ordinary business/and
to push it beyond its natural limitations is only to coirt danger.
"Fortunately /the Canadian banks
as a" body, have '.steadfastly ..opposed
an expansionist' policy and the .minor
troubles now being experienced only
lend to show that tlio hazards undertaken by a banker are considerable,
even" when'his hands.'are unfettered. ..

Wild animals cost a good deal of
money at the present time
bring about $5,000; hippopotamuses

reason is scarcity. Post-war conditions have interfered with the pursuit
of the industry of providing wild

was that thirteen German submarines

Problems' Of Moving
Huge Grain Crop
Distribution  of Grain  Cars is Important to Every Shipper
The. handling and distribution of
grain cars plays an important part in
the movement of the wheat crop of
Western Canada both eastward and
westward to the world's markets.
Without the first provision^and' constant supply of necessary box cars,
the farmers' wheat cannot be moved,
and the methods by which movements
of both loaded and empty cars are
kept under constant surveillance by
Canadian National Railways officials
in Winnipeg are" of general interest to
the people interested in the growing
or handling of grain.
The movement of the grain crop
each year is perhaps the biggest, problem which railway officials must face,
and with-the constantly increasing
grain haulage business of the Canadian National Railways, new problems
arise each year for which solutions
must bc found jn order that there may
bo no delay in gelling the grain to
market. With slight variations from
year to year, the grain crop of Western Canada begins to move toward
the markets of the world about the
first of September, but preparations
for this movement are begun by the
Canadian National Railways many
months before this.
Engines and cars are mobilized and
inspected and necessary'repairs made
to both motive power and rolling
stock, which is later assembled and
then distributed through the west according to the needs of the different
areas to be served. This year the
Canadian National Railways are In a
better position to handle the flow of
grain than eyer before from the standpoint^ cars and power available, and
all preparations have been made so
that the movement once begun, will
ccntinuewithout _a_ hitch untll_all demands have been met.    '

Some Striking Weather Facts
Highest and Lqyvest Temperatures
Ever Recorded tjf^Canada
Maclean's Magazine publishes a very
interesting and instructive article, entitled "Don't Elamo It On the Weather
Man," in which is shown the important part the weather (not the weather
man) plays, not only in agricultural
production, but in business and industry generally en land and sea. Some
striking weather facts are shown as
The coldest temperature ever registered in Canada was at Fort Good
Hope, N.W.T., Dec: 31, 1910, when 79
below zero was recorded.
A temperature of 78 below zero was
registered at Fort Vermilion, N.W.T.,
in January, 1911.
By way of contrast it might be noted
that in August of the following year
101 degrees was recorded here.
The highest temperatures recorded
in Canada aro as follows:
108.2 recorded at Medicine Hat in
July, 1886.
108   recorded   at Spencer's Bridge,
near Kamloops, July, 1908.
107 at Swift Current, July, 188G.
106 at Swift Current, Aug. 6, 1893.
103 at Toronto, July, 1911.
There is one wettest place in Canada.     It   is   Princess Royal Island,

,  Britain's Ships Busiest
Small Percetnage of Idle Tonnage In
British Ports
Mercantile ships "eat their heads
off" when tied up at the dock, and
British ships are the busiest in the
world, according to Herbet N. Cas-
son, who from London sent to the
Boston News Bureau a review of
the annual report of the British
Chamber of Shipping. He says, in
"The one insignificant fact in the
whole report is that British ships
are the busiest in the world. They
are six times busier than the ships of
other nations. There are at the moment 12,000,000,idle tons in the world,
and only 711,000 of these are in British
ports. So, roughly speaking, England has one-third of the ships on the
high seas, and only one-eighteenth of
the idleness."���Toronto Globe.

Good Exhibition Of
Wireless Steering
British Ship Directed By Radio Dodges
Bomb Fire
Moving at 10 knots an hour, the old
battleship Agamemnon, steered by
wireless; was put out of action recently by a bomb dropped from an aeroplane at an 'altitude of S.000 feet.
Bombing trials were carried out by
six big bombers and the missile that
struck the Agamemnon, waa one of
the.two direct hits made out of about
100 Bbmbs dropped, although ten fell
within 20 feet of the Vessel.
It was a better exhibition of wireless steering than of bombing, for the
old battleship dodged about responding to every order sent' by wireless
from a destroyer more than a mile
away, Considering the stormy weather prevailing and the altitude of the
attacking planes, the naval experts
consider the trials to have been successful.

Winnipeg is the first city to adopt
the dry, dustless system of street

over the same surface and left it polished.
Arduous Climb Brings Party
To Summit of Mt. Mary Vaux
Quartet From Jasper Reach Climax of
Camping Trip  When They Make
Supposedly Impossible Ascent
Two men from Chicago and two women from Ohio, have just reached
Jasper and report that after a, six
weeks' journey through almost trackless wilds they have been successiul
in reaching the peak of Mount Mary
Vaux, hitherto considered invincible.

Douglas Sutherland, Secretary of the

and Miss Mary Blakeslee, of Medina,

early in July, accompanied by Bruce
Otto, a well known guide here, they
were told that they could never make
it. "The summit of Mary Vaux is unreachable," old-timers told them.
"The country for miles around is too
rough." But all of the party had ridden on the elevator during the rush
hours, besides being experienced in
mountain climbing. So they were
used to hardship.
They reached the top after six and
a half hours of arduous climbing. The
summit is 10,000 feet above sea level

Council. How much of this could be
prevented by better laws .to ensure
pure food, pure water and milk, and
abolish slums and overwork and overcrowding? How much by shutting
out low grade emigration?
Seed Grain Needed by Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan now requires 32,000,-
000, bushels of grain each year to sow
an average cropped 'area of approximately 21,000,000 -acres, according to
M. P. Tullis, Field Crops Commissioner. Two-thirds oi the.secd needed, or
20,000,000 bushels, is wheat, while the
balance Is largely oats, amounting to
10,000,000 bushels. _ Rye comes third,
with'about 1,000,000 bushels; barley,
700,000; and flax, 300,000. -
American Flag to be Smaller
The Stars and Stripes is to be altered and all over the United States and
in the embassies and consulates
abroad new flags will have to be prepared.
The change, however, Is not a very
drastic one. It is not a^change of design, but only one of proportion.
There is to be a reduction of twelve
and one-tenth per cent, in the length
of the flag, the ratio of length- to
bre&ath b'eing in future 1.67 to 1
stead of 1.90 to 1 as in the past.
England, Ireland and U.S.
Mr. Winston Churchill, addressing
a meeting of the English-speaking
union, said: "I was listening the other
day to a very gifted young American,
who said about the Irish question:
'England never remembered, Ireland
never forgot, and America never
knew.' Now they had rewritten that
epigram. England had remembered,
Ireland was beginning to forget, and
American understood."���From the
London Times.'

Tobacco Grown in England
The cultivation .of tobacco in England was officially forbidden until
1310. Many farmers then began- to
experiment, and in ~ 1913, about T40
acres were under cultivation. Since
the war the industry has had a hard
struggle, but there are signs now
that things are improving, and.many
people expect British tobacco to take
a prominent- place in the world's
markets.     t

Shanking the general public  for its
co-operation in keeping   down  the
loss from forest fires   this   season.
Only two -fifths as many fires have
been reported this   year   as there
were last year up to the same date
and whereas the   cost of  fighting
fireB in 1922 was   $343,000 up to
Angust 17, the cost this  year  has
been cut to ��20,000.    The minister
points out,   however,   that  this ib
the most dangerous season  of tbe
year and the same   care,   or even
greater vigilance, must be exercised
for another month if this splendid
record is to be maintained.

Hon. J. D. MacLean, provincial
secretary and minister of railways,
has returned from an extended
tour of the P.G.E. Railway and
contiguous country. He found
little but optimism and stated that
the number of new settlers was
surprisingly large. As an evidence
of this he remarked that the number of school teachers in the northern inspectorate had increased from
fifty six in 1919 to 10S this year.
As miuister of education, Hon. Dr.
McLean said that the government
was seeing to it that every child
was being given educational facilities. In settling up a pioneer
country this accomodation was

the Jubilee Mining Co.
will start immediately. Already
cars and tracks are on the property
and driftiug by hand drilling ou
the lead will be conducted at
present until a car load has been
mined. There is now 12 tons of
ore ready for shipping aud enough
in sight to complete the carload.
Arrangements are being made to
install a 3-drill compressor with
water line drills.
The Spotted Horse is situated on
Jubilee Peak which overlooks the
town of Greenwood. The ledge
has "been Btripped the whole length
of the claim and in places shows
five different ore shoots. The last
assays of this ore ran ��8 in gold,
104 ounces in silver aud 72% lead.
The facilities for working the
property are such that tbe ore can
be dropped from the tunnel to the
old smelter road aud run down a
distance of 500 feet to tho spur of
the C. P. Raihoad. Bouudary
Creek flows at the base of the peak
and it iB a seven minute walk from
tho main street of tbe town to tbe
tunnel. It is Mr. Bartholomew's
intention to work the mine to full
capacity as soon as he can iustall
the machinery, by working directly
upon tho ledge tbe indications are
that he will be able to ship several
carloads of ore a month.
The officers of the company are:
C. E. Bartholomew, president; C.
K.     Garrif.,      secretary- treasurer;
Improvements are being done at
the Combination Mine, such as
hauling lumber for the erection of
ore and sorting houses, shute and
ore bins. The track in the tunnel
is being repaired and extended..
The compressor building will be
made more comfortable for winter,
the water tank placed in the pump
house and the pipe line will be pro-
Work 1 fcected so as to keep from freezing.
This _work is being done preparatory to the mine resuming on the-
1st. The crew had been working
steadily for some time and wanting
a holiday, rather than put on a new
force the mine was closed down for
a few days. It is the intention of
the management to put on a double
shift soon after resuming.
Returns of assays from this mine
are very, encouraging. Samples
taken at random from ore in the
face of the tqnnel by P. B. Free-
land, government mining engineer,
aud were assayed by a government
chemist and so are authentic and
