The buckwheat pancake season
is on. ' These cakes with pork
gravy were a popular dish in the
old days when men worked hard
aad women were hearty, In these
days however, we must have nice
butter upon them ' and choice

cheap and hearty. Economically
however, cheap diet is suitable
for the times, bnt for business
men who must continually be on
i the watch lest the banks should
get them, pork and pancakes
have not sufficient resiliency
about them. Good out meal is
the best breakfast for a man

En route to Beaverdell. there
passed through here on, Monday
two overland tourists, making the
trip all the way from Penticton by
team and wagon. They roads in
thisdistricfc were ideal, compared
with two feet of snow on the Osoyoos hill. The report things very
dull in the fruit towns through
which they passed.
The seed houses are sending
their catalogues to amateur gardeners, "and creating a desire for
good seeds and- new., varieties of
plants. Like the mail order"
houses they spread before the unwary a temptation to buy. We
should be able to .buy without
the aid of pictures, but we know
that the pictures tempt us, and
that every amateur gardener is
only too prone to yield to temptation. / The only advice we have
to give is, buy flowers and plants
then make the garden look beautiful. Make the town beautiful
and it will grow. %
Many people here eat brown,
that is whole wheat bread, and^
they like it. Some people eat
nothing else. There-are some
women here who cannot be surpassed in the making of it, except
perhaps by a few nice women
who are able to put a little of
their own sweetness into the mixing. But is it wise that a nation
whose soldiers nurtured on white
bread won at Vimy Ridge and
Waterloo;" a people who lead the
world in civilization, in science
and in art, should take to the
diet of their competitors, and
brown bread has made braggarts
and liars of our bitterest enemies.
We are marching proudly at the
head of the human procession oa
a white bread diet. If we change
to brown bread, we run a great
risTs of failing behind.

Scouts, Are
You An Asset ?
Aims of Boy' Scout Movement Are
Noble and  Unassailable
Progress, in business lines, is distinctly related to assets. We continually hear the question, "Arc you
a success?" lu moist cases, referring
to business success, or particularly
pointing to some oue speciality in
which one is actively engaged. If
success means assets, then a successful person is either a large or i\ small
asset, according to his or her success.
Apply this to the individual, and the
rpiostion then refers directly to you or
,jne. Ask yourself, "Am I an asset,
not only in business, hut in social life,
���is a citizen, morally, physically and
spiritually?"
Scouting tends to train a boy to be
an asset to himself, his home, his
community, his country and above all
to his '"God." "To the boy not a
scout," try scouting, il -will help you
to be an asset, or a larger asset. Have
you any great expectations? If so,
the following beatitudes will be a
source of help aud encouragement.

Find Curious Ring
Said to Have Once Belonged to Jewels
of a British  King
A curious shaped gold ring, said to
have once been a part of the jewels of
a British king, and which tallies in detail with one which-disappeared from
the English'court in 1610, and has
since been listed on the records as
of unknown whereabouts, was found
by Charles Burns in thc- sand bar near
Thimble islands, while on a clamming
trip.
Thimble- Isalnds, says a dispatch
from New Haven, Conn., have long
been noted as a rendezvous of the
famous Captain Kidd, and it is believed that the ring was a part of.the
treasure loot of the pirate who, according to well-known legends, buried his spoils in this vicinity.
The ring-is composed of four bands,'
joined by clasped hands. History
states that the nearest resemblance
to the ring was worn by Lady Catherine Grey, and it is said io have signified her marriage witli the Earl . of
Hertford. Queen Elizabeth, disploas-
od'.with the union, sent "Hertford to
the Tower of London in confinement,
and subjected Lady Catherine .to many
hardship*?:'untilthe .validity of the
marriage-'was' proven." i The-marriage'
was later "dissolved by a commission
:and- so pronounced.in "the palace, of
the-Bishop of-London' in 3562.7.. -"-''.*.:

Delving Into Tomb of Pharoah May

The excavators at Ltixor report that
the munfniy case of Tutenkhamon is
something to make moderns marvel.
Whatever scientific objects may bo
peoplo will take ihe .trouble to dig into
the (omb of the ancient monarch, one
very., obvious and very valuable lesson fo be gleaned is ihai the present
can learn a good deal.from the past if
people will take Ih trouble to dig into
the records and unearth the evidence
of bygone achievements. AA'isddm
did not dawn with the birth of the now-
living generation,-nor when our Asking ancestors began to give up their
roving life and settle down in the
woods of Ilriiain. 'Successive"civil-.
Izaiions had grown hoary in turn long
before the present one began to develop. That fact is being impressed
upon tlie minds of millions of newspaper readers-tho world over by the
despatches which have come from the
Valley of the Kings in the last couple
of years. Perhaps one result will be
to '.revive.- the study of history. If

Purchasing Power of Farmers Must
Be Restored at Once
That there can bo no great industrial revival until the farmers' purchasing power is restored by a proper
balance of commodity prices, was tho
opinion expressed by President J.L.
Stansell, of StaiTordville, Ont., of the
Canadian Breeders' Association, iu his
address at theannualmeeling of tiie
association in Toronto. This restoration, he stated, may involve a
lowering of transportation, costs and
a lowering of prices of all goods, that
ordinarily find *a market on the farm.

Failed to Collect Taxes ������;
Possibility, of Ventilation o'f What is

possibility .pf a ventilation of what
they claim was the culpable neglect of
the two previous administrations to
collect income and business profits
taxes, much of which will be lost to
the country through such neglect, the
Itlordan case being given as an instance. It Is intimated that a commission may be appointed to investigate' some features of the methods
by whicli such taxes.were collectefl,
and, it is staled that the total number
of assessments for the war profits tax
was' about 27,000,. of which several
thousand still await final ���idjudication

WHEAT POOL IS
DISCUSSED FROM

overflow meeting here by Dr. Robert

speakers were accorded.a cordiarwcl-
come by the huge gathering.
���������   "Great Britain blow into smoke and
f,re iii the war the accumulated sav;
ings of four hundred years," said Dr.
Magill. .'"She has ...two millions unemployed!     Her factories are closed
because Europe is.tpo. torn and distrained, to buy her goods.     A large
percentage, of-her merchant marine-is
rotting in her   harbors.     Picture * a
people that have lost nearly a million
of her best men, who have devoted the
savings of centuries to the cause ol
freedom, whose Industries are dislocated which...cannot collect a dollar
of    what    she    has loaned to other
counties, yet is determined to repay,
if she can, every dollar borrowed from
Uie United States."' .     -
In   closing   his   speech, Dr. Magill
admitted the serious condition of the
wheat grower on the western prairies,
and  said   that   there   were   different
solutions offered.'    One was that the
farmer should look for other sources
of revenue. -" Another was that by a
different form of marketing, and eliminating all the agencies that lie between the farmer anZTthe middleman,
it might be possible to increase prices.
"No* speeches for or against the pool
will decide the issue," said Dr. Magill.
"It must be decided-by a lost.     If a
new and better method  can be de-
-veloped, then iu Heaven's name-.lef II
be tried out, and the sooner wcget
' it the better.     You should be very'

CLAIM ESTIMATES
TO BE CUT BY
MANY MILLIONS
Ottawa.���A very substantial saving
in public expenditures will be indicated when the estimates for Jhe coming
fiscal year are brought before parliament at the coming session.
The government has been scrutinizing the projected outlays for the
past two months, and many millions,
it i is estimated, are being lopped off
with the idea of balancing revenue
and expenditures. The expense of
civil government or, in other words,
Uie civil service, will show a considerable reduction, although noi so much
initially as later in the year, when
projected reforms are put into effect.
Public works estimates are being cut
to. the bone, apart from carrying on
works, already under contract, and
necessary^teins on maintenance.
In the railway department, tlie betterment of_ some twenty millions in
the Canadian National Railway's finances will cut down, correspondingly,
tho inroad on the public exchequer.
Items voted last year, which appear
this time, are iu aid of the provinces,
for agricultural instruction, highways
and housing. - Militia estimates latterly havo been kept down' to the
minimum, but this time again, considerable more is shaved off. Through
the refunding of loans during the year
a substantial saving in Interest account will also be shown.

Pensions For Widows

Philip Snowden

whose family bread winner is incapacitated, drew a sympathetic reply in

who, however, said the,government at

Fort WilIiam,_Ont.���Loiters having
important bearing on' alleged filing of
scale beams in country elevators of
Saskatchewan and Alberta" were submitted by Chief Counsel Woods at a
session of the Royal Grain inquiry
Commission. These related to evidence, brought out at Moose Jaw,
chiefly from discharged grain. buyers
of some companies.     The commission
(counsel had written at the close of
that "meeting to the Ottawa Department of Weights and Measures to
have them secure, from the superintendents of that department, in ��� the
prairies, as many instances of the ���
kind mentioned as came under their
experience.
At Moose Jaw one discharged' buyer
said he had filed a beam so as to
cheat the patrons having grain weighed there, on the orders or his superintendent, which was denied by ihat
officer, though he admitted having
found thc tiled beam as described and
haying corrected it. These lamper-
ings, in order to give the farmer light
weights, the disclosures in the communication from the department
showed, were found in a number" ot
cases.
A letter of October i from the department said iL was thought tho
subject should be carefully investigated and "the commission make some
recommendations that would give
greater security to the farmers.
The chief letter submitted was from
government    superintendent    of
j weights and measures at Saskatoon,
' December 9.
During eight' years in .the locality
covered by him in Saskatchewan and
Alberta he had instances of fouT scale
beams having been filed. One-would
give the cleva.or some 40 pounds the
best of weights If uscd. The agent
denied all knowledge of tho filing and .
^ f I had corrected It. The previous buyer
' ""j at ihat point   had   been   discharged.
I Thc   second   case showed the butt_.of
| the beam worn so that, if used, it
would give the farmer twenty pounds
the worst of it.    The agent there "was

Although the Canadian Pacific
Railway has yet issued no forecast
of construction contemplated for
1924, the fact that it has ordered
60,000 tons of steel from the Algoroa
Steel Company, of Sault Ste. Marie,
paems to indicate that its program
will be extensive.
According to a statement recently

Alberta's butter production last
yeaT was 18,500,000 pounds, or

Dairymen's Association. It was not
so long ago that Alberta was using
butter imported from New Zealand.
The year 1923 was a favorable
one in the building and construction activities of Canada, and returns show an advance of about 10
per cent. In 1922 the total expenditures in this regard were $315,000,-
000, and in 1923 $345,000,000, an
increase of $30,000,000.
Exports of pulpwood from Canada
for the year 1923 amounted to 1,-
384,230 cords, compared with 1,011,-
332 for 1922, an increase of 372,898
cords or 35 per cent. The 1923 figures are equivalent to about 900,000
tons of newsprint, the amount which
can be manufactured from that
amount of wood.

Eastbound steamship travel from
Canadian ports via Canadian Pacific steamships is heavier at the
present time than for several years
past at this season, a recent report
declares. Bookings in some instances
have run as high as 70 per cent increase over those of last winter.

According to a recent official compilation, out of every 100 people in
Canada 51 live on farms. The 70,-
000 farms in' Canada represent a
gross worth of $700,000,000 or about
$10,000 per farm, and produce an
annual revenue of nearly $1,500,000,
an average income per farm of ?2,-
000 yearly.
From the opening of the crop
year, September 1st, to the official
closing of navigation, December
12th, the Canadian Pacific Railway
reported the heaviest marketing of
grain since the inception of the road.
Cars loaded by the company also
created a record for the season, having numbered 116,232. Grain marketed topped the-2007'00O,000 bushel
mark. -��� ;
Thirty-seven per cent of all automobiles in Canada are owned by
farmers. Ownership of the balance,
according to recent statistics, is
made up as follows: business men
and brokers, 16 per cent; salesmen
and travellers, 16 per cent; professional men, 8 per cent; laborers, 4
per cent; contractors and livery men,
3 per cent each, and miscellaneous
and no occupation stated, 13 per cent.
When the Canadian Pa'cific liner
"Empress of Canada" left New York
on January 30th for her great
round-the-world cruise, she was the
first Canadian vessel ever to commence such a voyage carrying a
regular bookstall in the 'charge of
experienced attendants,...in addition
to a free library. The stock includes
many excellent recent books., on
travel, which will enable passengers
to prepare themselves "lor the foreign lands they \yill visit, as well as
a large number of novels by the
best-known authors.
Of-the total wheat exported from
Canada in November, amounting to
84,196,903 bushels, by far the greater
proportion went to;��� the' United Kingdom, which took 43,815,391 bushels.
The United States was second largest' importer .of -.Canadian wheat,
-taking-9,010,143 bushels. Italy came
next, taking 4,013,152 bushels, and
Greece next, "with .2,066,480 bushels.
