either because they erroneously

birds of this kind iti their, flea infested land, or because . they
thought that the gobbler's headdress was of a Turkish ; pattern.

Mr. Sapiro has come and convinced the Okanagan Valley that
co-operation will solve the difficulties at present confronting the
growers. The enthusiastic audiences that heard him at Vernon,
Kelowna, Penticton and Summer-
land prove this beyond the shadow
of a doubt. The enthusiasm that
he aroused must be taken advantage of at once so that the plans for
the marketing of the 1923 crop
may be carried out.. The leaders
realize this and are working to
that end..
Mr, Sapiro is a brilliant and
finished speaker. He .has a pleasing personality and ' the sincerity
There will be a public meeting
in the Co-Operative Hall, Rock

1.30 p.m., to hear the report of the
delegate to the Provincial Convention. All who are interested in
hearing the objects of the new
party are invited to attend. This
will be followed by a meeting of
members to formulate rules for the
local association.

Develop Canada s Foreign Trade
Tho prosperity of the Canadian people depend* upon Hie development of
the natural resources of tin; Dominion for the use of people both al homo and
abroad. Possessed as yet of only a small population, but with a great extent,
of territory and an enormous wealth in natural resource.'!, it is ;i self-evident,
fact that if tho development of Canada's resources is limited to the requirements of the home market, growth will be rcgrelably slow and the prosperity
of all people now resident in the Dominion long delayed. While Canada needs
population, and the resultant much enlarged home market, it also requires
that its foreign trade be enormously and even rapidly extended.
No nation, any more than an individual family, can become rich and prosperous by trade confined to and carried on among its own members, !Tarti-
cularly in the case of a country like Canada, still largely in an undeveloped
and, pioneer state compared with other countries, is it essential that the raw
materials of our resources be developed and sold to those other nations re-
c.uiring them, and who in turn have something wliich Canada cannot produce
for itself.
Without encroaching upon the realm of controversial political topics, it
can, we think, be stated without fear of successful contradiction that the economical, fiscal or trade policy of Canada for many years has been based on the
principle of seeking to conserve the home market of Canada to Canada, rather
than seeking .to develop Canada by energetically endeavoring to place Canadian products iu foreign markets. That is to say, the theory which lias found
general acceptance has been that it was much more important that Canadian-
made goods and products should be sold in Canada, even to the exclusion of
foreign-made goods and products, than to develop the use of Canadian products and promote Canadian industry and bring wealth into Canada through
the export of our goods and products to other lands.
Without presuming to pass judgment in this column on the wisdom or unwisdom of such a policy in the years that have passed, we arc strongly of the
opinion that the present Canadian policy la following along correct and sound
lines In seeking to obtain a larger entrance for Canadian products into the
markets of other countries. The action of. the Dominion Government during
the past few months in negotiating trade treaties with France, Italy and Australia, and in opening negotiations for similar treaties with Belgium and Spain,
and possibly with other countries, is undoubtedly in line witli the present-day
requirements of Canadian industry and progress.
It is an illuminating fact recorded in the press recently that, following
the signing of a trade treaty with France, one of the big Ontario manufacturers of agricultural implements secured a large French order, and this Canadian factory began working full staffed and fuli time on the order at a time
when the domestic demand was more or less stagnant.

Accuracy of the Bible
History of King's Has Been Found
Absolutely Correct
There i.s no book in the world that
has been handed clown as has the
Bible. There are twenty-nine kings
of Egypt, Israel, Judah, Moab, Damascus, Tyre, Babylon, Assyria, Persia;
ten different countries mentioned
among these twenty-nine, both in the
Bible and on the monuments, so we
can trace them. Every one of these
is mentioned iu the Bible as king of
the right country. Every one of the
twenty-nine is mentioned in the correct chronological and synchronous
order. Remember, some of these
kings reigned, like Barneses II., for
sixty-two years; some for two months.
If you were going to write tiie history
of this century, and had to gel those
little kings in the Balkans and Germany aud Austria and Italy down
right in the synchronism and in their
relativly, you would find ii a big problem. But the Bible has its kings
right.'-���TR. Dick Wilson.

Telephone Courtesy
Immediate Response to Call Is Only
Common Politeness
Courtesy is the cheapest gift in
the world. It costs nothing. It involves no obligation. It always
pleases the recipient. Nobody is the
loser thereby. Yet thousands of people who are courteous in their personal relations with* their fellows iu business manifest a lamentable and inexplicable lack of courtesy when using
the telephone. It should be obvious,
even to the most obtuse mind, that
anybody calling another person on the
telephone ought to bc ready to speak
to the person called immediately a
connection is established. Yet tho
common formula will be found to consist of "Watt a Minute."
The -wait covers tlu. time occupied
by the operator at the calling end iu
notifying tho person who has called
that tlie person who has been called
is ready. But why not a direct connection, instead of intermediary de
lays extending from the operator
through a clerk or a secretary or some
minor official up to the person calling?
Common courtesy dictates   this,   and

Canadians Not Cheese Eaters
There are about 0,000,000 people
in Canada and every one of them
over two years of age should be a

they eat less than three pounds each

twice as much, and even then they

New Use For Radio
Exact Location of Herring Schools
Given to  Swedish   Fishermen
The radiophonc~is becoming a serious menace to tho safety of the herring off the Swedish coast. The fishermen out at sea soon will be told
from the Gothenburg radio central thc
exact location of the herring schools.
This unique service, which will tend
to eliminate wasteful waiting on the
part, of ..fishermen', and will doubtless mean a considerable increase
in the catches of herring, is tlie newest commercial use to which tlie wireless telephone will be put in Sweden,

Canada's Finest Wood For Structural
�� -      Purposes
On account of its strength and,the
size iu_which it can be obtained Douglas fir of British Columbia is considered as Canada's finest wood for structural purposes although it has many
other uses.     The tree reaches heights
exceeding   250   feet   and   diameters
came to spend all its time'on land or; above seven or eight feet, although it3
in the water.. Generation after generation it failed to use its wings' for
flying, and so in the course of long
evolution those wings became very
small and stiff, and "lost their long
feathers, until now they cannot be
moved,at the middle '"joint--like Hie
wings of Hying birds.
But the penguins became wonderful

wings one after the other as a

size'is much below this on an average
in the interior part of British Columbia. ' It is an important timber for
structural purposes, for the production of lumber, railway ties, piles,
mine timbers, wood block paving -ind
many other purposes.

Wonderful Work Is
Done In Damascus
Hand Looms Still Used for Weaving
Beautiful fabrics
The looms of Damascus have been
famous for many centuries. In this
city, where everything is still done
on the most primitive -way���where
meal is ground in stone mills turned
by camels, the hand looms are worked by a weaver and his draw-boy.
On these looms are made the beautiful damasks, woven in silks of
brilliant colors, that were known
throughout Europe and Asia as early
as the time of the Crusades.
Damascus was also famous for/its
Damascus blades in the Middle
Ages but few have been forged since
1399, when Tamerlane, the terrible
Tartar conqueror, raided the city
and carried off all ��the great armorers
to his own capitals.
These blades were so keen that they
would cut floating gossamar; so hard
that they would.shear an iron spear
in two as if it'were a reed; and'so
elastic that they would bend to a right
angle' and then spring back as ever.
The twisting and welding of two
grades of iron and steel gave them
their cutting properties, and also contributed a beautiful watermark pattern. To make them still more beautiful the Damascenes inlaid them with
marvelous designs done in gold and
silver.... Damascus today is still famous for this exquisite inlay work in
metals. -

Calgary Citizen Declares Tanlac Ended His Rheumatism and Put

"Tanlac lost no time driving out my

This emphatic statement was made recently by David A.: McArthur, 1042,

pained me all the time, and at night
I "could get no rest or sleep, no. matter
what position I tried to lie in. When
I was at work thc pains were just as
bad or worse, and I was simply miserable.
"What people said about Tanlac in

I've been thankful a thousand times.
This medicine certainlyrdid the work

Britain's Arable Land
Reduction in Amount of Agricultural
Land is Announced
deduction of the arable area of
Great Britain has been continuous
since 1918. Land now under the plow
is not much greater than immediately
before the war, according to a report
from the ministry of agriculture.
The total area under crops and
grass showed less change in 1922
than for several years past, the figures
being, 26,025,000 acres in 1-922, against
26,140,000 in 1921. The arable area,
however, was reduced by- 308,000 acres
while the permanent grass area was
increased by 189,000 acres.

1. The Son's Insubordination (v. 12).
There is every indication that this
was a happy home. But-a devil entered it and stirred up discontent in
the heart of the. younger son. He became tired of the restraints of home.
His desire for freedom moved hiin to
wilfully choose to leave home���throw
off the constraints of his father's rule.
Sin is the desire to be free from the
restraints of rightful authority and for
selfish indulgence. It starts out with
wrong thoughts about God. At the
request cf the spn, tlie father "divided
unto them his living."
II. The Son's"Departure (r. 13).
Having made the final decision he
got his goods in portable shape. Having thrown off the restraints of. his
father's rule, he eagerly withdrew from
his father's presence. This is always
the way sin works. He "gathered all
together." When the sinner casts off
his allegiance to God he takes all thai
he has with him. Ho not only wastes
his money, but his character is sacrificed. , .
III. The Son's Degeneration  (vv. 13-
14).
' He had a good time while his money
lasted, but the end came quickly. The
indications are that his course was
soon run. From plenty in his father's
house to destitution in the far country was a short journey. The sinner
is soon made'to realize the famine
when his very powers which ministered to his pleasure are burned out.
IV. The   Son's   Degradation (vv. 15,-
16). '  ..   ,
He had no friends to help him when
Iiis money was all gone, so he was
driven to hire out to a citizen to feed
swine. It was quite a change from a
sonship in his father's house to feeding hogs in the far country. So it is;
those who will not serve God are made
slaves lo the devil to. do his bidding
(Rom. 6:16). In his shame and disgrace the prodigal could not "even get
the necessary food. The coarse food
of the hogs was denied him ."���
V. The Son's Restoration (vv. 17-2-1).
1." He   Came   to   Himself (v. 17).
When he reflected a bit lie was made
conscious that, though he had wronged his-father and ruined himself, yet
he was a son of his father. In the
days.of his sinning he was beside him-..
self. The world calls the sinner who
leaves off his evil ways crazy,.but in
reality he just becomes sane. If we
j^e 1 could but get sinners-to think serious.
' ly of their condition-it would';be;iiipr_c
easy to get them' -to. turn ."from their
sins.- '   , ..    '���-.   ' .-..-"-";, '-��� . '-'

"YOUR TEETH"
PROPHYLAXIS
By    Rea    Proctor    McGee,    Mvi>.,
D.D.S., Pittsburgh, Pa.
re-
A"while ago a huge dirigible balloon
exploded in the air and plunged
through the roof of a building in one
of our large cities. Many people, who
were doing their best to be useful citizens, were killed at their work as the
burning wreckage came down upon
them. A set of city ordinances were
passed at once to prevent a similar
catastrophe in the future.
It always takes a severe lesson to
wake Americans up to the fact that
an ounce.of prevention is worth while.
Why must we always wait? Why
not prevent in the first place? Prophylaxis means: early treatment for
prevention. -
Prophylaxis-*'also means: do the
right thing and avoid the accident.
So manyii regrets can be eliminated by
doing the right thing first. In the
mouth the right thing is to have the
teeth and mouth thoroughly cleansed
at frequent intervals. Every surface
of every tooth should be carefully
gone over and each little particle of
stain and every deposit of tartar
moved.
Teeth frequently have very rough
enamel, almost as if nature had neglected to polish them. This rough
enameP'ls^a favorite resting place for
food and bacteria. It should always
be smoothed, and polished
little cavity should be filled.
One  tiny, filling is  worth a  dozen
large fillings as a tooth preserver.
Have your teeth filled while the
cavities are small. It does not hurt
to fill little cavities and
prevent big ones.
It is very important to remove all
stains. AVhere there is a stained spot
it indicates that there is a spot that
is not cleansed % the friction of the
tooth brush and it usually means that
the enamel at that point has been attacked by the acids and decomposing
food. Every stained area should be
cleansed, " smoothed and polished.
Where fillings are good but rough,
they should be ground to the right
sine and shaped and polished; if they
are defective they, should be removed
and replaced by perfect ones.
One of the most important thing.*
! about fillings in teeth i3 the contact
point. This is the spot where each
tooth touches its neighbor. Any fault
n't .this_ point allows food-to pack between the teeth, causing great discomfort! and making the gums sore.   :    ,-
.Prophylaxis"is the best tooth insurance.--.     ".'.'���' ���  '���"    - ���

Beatty Offers Farm Courses in Alberta
For Boys of Britain
Announcement is made that President Beatty, of the C.P.R., is awarding
a full summer course at the a'gricul��
tural schools of Alberta to the four
prize winners of the young farmers'
clubs of Great Britain.
These organization have been formed in farming communities of the British Isles and also in Western Canada,
some particular or specialized lino of
farming being taken up by members.
In Saskatchewan, these organizations
increased their membership from 460
in 1S13 to 30,000 in 1921, and in the
same period in Manitoba they have
increased from seven clubs to 210
clubs, with 1,500 branch clubs with a
total membership of 25,000.
The four selected boys will arrive
in Canada in time to commence, their
summer course at the Alberta agricultural schools in May next. There
is a possibility that the award will be
made an annual one.
Indiscriminate Charity
To give money is to pauperize, even
to the extent of helping a hungry man.
It is Infinitely better to put him in tho
way of earning his own dinner, and
then he will be able to earn other dinners and find his self-respect conserved as well as -I1I3 self-containment
strengthened. To build up independence should be the aim of all sound
philanthropy. Anything.short of that
almost invariably does more -harm
than good.���Ottawa Journal.

Bananas Were Curiosities
First Ones Brought to United States
In 1870
In 1S70 the first bananas 'in commercial   quantities   arrived   in    tho
United States.   .Some of the red fellows    were    brought    to Canada by
daring  fruit dealers  about 1S87  and
were regarded as curiosities. ,s   Today
it is estimated 72 bananas are eaten
annually by every man, woman, boy
and girl in the whole of North America.     The United States and Canada
together consume  55,000,000  bunches
a year.   And" in the interval 'between,
by means of judicious and truthful advertising, the grape fruit and seedless
orange have been commercialized to a
degree   hitherto   undreamed.���Ottawa

Your Town
If you want to have  the kind of home
town
Like the kind of a town you like
You needn't slip your clothes in a grip
And start on a loug, long hike;
You'll only find what you left behind
For   there's   nothing   that's   really
new;
It's a knock at yourself when you kuock
your town,
It isn't your town���it's you.
You wouldn't expect if you mined  you
soil,
Bumper crops that you use to get;
Nor aught but runts from feeding that
stunts;
Nor payment without a debt
One gets returns from what he earns
Something must first be due,
If your town  doesn't pay, look at it this
way:
It isn't the town���it's you.
Real towns are not made by  men afraid
That others will get abead,
When everyone   works   and   nobody
shirks
You cau raise a town from the dead
And if while you make your personal
stake,  .
Your neighbors can make oue too, .
Your town will be what you want it to be
It isn't the town���it's you.
