i he Farmer Ancl Labor Legislation
Qmslions submitted (o farmers as to why Western agriculture was not a
ri*.i.--i,'iiably profitable business in J 023, taken on tlio whole, elicit two main
ri axons. "   '
Firsl, bJgh cost, of production due to high-wages for labor, wliich was reflected in excessive threshing bills, and high prices i'or equipment and supplies of aii kinds essential to the industry of agriculture.
Second, the low price received for farm products by the farmer after he
had met the heavy costs of getting those products on the markets of the world,
and particularly the high rail ancl hike freight rales. ��
Kxamination of these Lwo reasons will disclose that, after all, Lhey constitute one reason only���that reason being high labor costs leading lo inflation
in prices and charges for --ill supplies and services required in successful
The depressed slate of agriculture in .192.", was not. the result of popr
crops. Manitoba, it is true, suffered severely in this respect, but Saskatchewan and Alberta harvested good crops, both as to quantity and quality. Alberta's returns far exceeded any previous year, and the Prairie West recorded oue of the best crops in its history. Therefore, neither the farmer nor
the country is to be blamed for the unsatisfactory conditions that, prevail, nnd
which are proving so disheartening to farmers-everywhere and causing much
As stated in previous articles, the present situation is largely the result
of unsound economic theories and ill-advised legislation giving effect to those
theories. In other words, man and noLfnature is responsible, and it is only
through the eiforts of man that the needed remedies can be applied. Their
application at this time will require courage and statesmanship, but until
they are applied the eagerly awaited and long hoped for betterment cannot

What Is It That Pays?
The Moral of This Story is That It
Pays to Advertise
One day ten men each lost a ten dollar bill. Nine of ..them were pessimists, and one believed in advertising.
He ran a want ad. in the local paper,
staling that he had lost a ten-dollar
bill and would give a reward for its
Seven men came around to the address given in the want ad., each with
a ten-dollar bill he had found. The
optimist took the money and gave
each in turn a dollar for his honesty.
Lot's sum it np' now: Each of the
seven honest men were ahead one
berry; the pessimists who did not believe that advertising paid .were ou!.
ten bones each; the fellow who believed in advertising was Ihe big winner;
the three fellows who had round each
a tenner but did not answer tho ad.
were crooks, but were ahead ten each.
Honesty may or may not be the best
policy, but it. pays to advertise!���Exchange.

2 Years' Backache
Subdued by "Nerviline"
All skin diseases sucli as pimples originate through failure
of the kidneys and liver. All
taints that block the avenues of
health must be removed. Dr.
Hamilton's Pills do this quickly. They cleanse the system,
make the skin smooth, restore
roses to the cheeks, and give
clear, dainty complexion.
For good looks, good health, and
good spirits, there is nothing so sure
as Dr. Hamilton's Pills. 25c boxes,

Saskatchewan's Population
Another   Influx   of  Settlers   Must   Be
Expected  When   Conditions
Saskatchewan received 192,958 immigrants .in the. decade 1913-.1.922, according to a statement issued by the
provincial bureau of labor.and industries. Over 45,000 new settlers came
into thc province in 1912 and oyer
���1-1,000 in 1913. The war years wero
poor immigration years. The lowest
point was reached hi J 915, when only
5,182 immigrants came-into the province. . A revival, took place in the
last years of the war but after the
armistice 'there -was another slump
and in 1922 tlie total" number of new
settlers coming in was c-ily 8,18'i.

Thomas Hardy's Method
Always Made Sure That the Story
Was Worth the Telling
Long ago 1 was taught a lesson by
Thomas Hardy. Ho was being lionized in London-aud I, a young apprentice, was seated next to him. Ho
turned to mo: "You young men puzzle me. " 1 can't see what attracts you
to fiction. You're clever, cynical, often brilliant; but your boolonuiss tho
bullseye���they tell everything except
a story. I have never allowed myself
to write chapter the first till I'have
felt sure that it was a story worth the
telling." Since then, I have never
set pen to paper without the certainty
that I had a plot that held together
and a plot which, to me at least,
seemed worthy of unfolding."-���W. J.
Help for Asthma. Neglect gives
asthma a great advantage. Tho
trouble, once it lias secured a foothold,
fastens its grip on the bronchial passages tenaciously. Dr. J. D. Kellogg's
Asthma Remedy is daily/ benefiting
cases of asthma of long standing.
Years of sufferings however, might-
havo. been prevented had the remedy
beenjised when the trouble was in its
first stages. . Do not neglect asthma',
but use this preparation at once.

Party in Great Britain-
The secretary of the colonies, J. It.

Wales, was the guest of the Australian
Club at luncheon iu London, said, Jn
referring to the advent of a Labor
Government, that the change merely
meant that "the old country and the
old empire will still go on."
He spoke of the change in government as a bloodless revolution, and,
referring to the fact that some people
professed to be frightened by the
rise of Labor to power, he said:
""The least apprehensive was our
guest today,-the Prince of AYales.
The only exception to him I would
make wouid be Iiis illustrious and distinguished-father. -They were , the

ready  for tho  people,  but  were  the
people ready for tho land?     The report   whicli   Caleb and his compeers
were to bring was to   decide,   not   a
queslion of geography, but a question
of philosophy,     it was   to   lest   the
present capacity of the people of God,
to   determine   whether   the heart of
Israel   vn\s   ripe for its inheritance"
(GoorgeMaiheson).     See The Historical Background.     So great was the
panic* of the people when they heard
the report of the ten spies, that alter
weeping all night they proposed to return to Egypt, the land of their bondage.     They    blamed    their   leaders,
Moses and Aaron;   they blamed God.
"Would that we had died in the land
of Egypt, or in this wilderness!" they
cried. "Wherefore doth Jehovah bring
us into the land to fall by the sword?
Our wives and our little ones will be
prey!"     "Such 'was the cry   of   the
coward, who always sees present conditions    at    their    darkest and  any
other  conditions   at   their   brightest."
The rebellious people even proposed to
select    a    leader to supplant Moses
and lead them back into slavery." "The
morrow was filled with difliculty, aud
they forgot the "witness of yesterday.
Tliere were giants ahead, and they forgot God.    Thej' had gained no fine deposit of faith from the providences of
the past.     Tho mere rumor of a difficulty filled them with fright, and they
longed for a captain who   would   lead
them back to 'the fleshpols.of Egypt'
"And are we" any better than these
murmuring -hosts of olden days ?   Arc
we entitled to sit as critics and judges,
or must we take* our place by their
side?     Have -we ever retreated when
religion  was becoming    too    costly?
Have   we   ever   thought-of desertion
when   giants   were   named?     These
are questions which test the faith and
quality of the soul.     Our very hearts
stand*  revealed    by.   our "attitude to
stupendous I asks.      Tlio purifying of
New York and London, the evangelization of the world.in this generation;
how   do   these   affect us?     Do they
quicken Ihe pulse or do they slacken
it? Do we loosen or tighten our purse-
strings?     Do wo shrink  .from    lhe
sacrifice with  tho  spirit of-murmuring, or do we leap to it with a heart
allame   with   love    for   the1 Lord our
God?"  (Jowett). .
-.���'II.. Tho Prayer - of-the Leaders,
verse 5. ' Sorely tried by the cowardly complaints; Moses and Aaron turned to God for help in this crisis, fairing oh their faces before the people in
tho altitude of prayer. Moses pleaded that God's reputation was al stake
in the salvation of Iiis people, verses
11-35. ��� "Do not pray for easy lives.

Britain's Unemployed
Claimed That. There Is No Standing
Army of Unemployed in Britain
Recent inquiries by the British
Ministry of Labor show that the popular phrases about "a standing army of
two million unemployed who are deteriorating month by month" are not
accurate, and that the great majority
of unemployed are only workless for
short periods.
Investigation has shown that at the
end of four weeks practically half ot
the unemployed have found work of
some sort and "their places are taken
by a corresponding number who have
lost their jobs.
There is no "standing army'."-of unemployed; its constituent members
are constantly changing, so Lhat there
is not the same risk- of deterioration
as there would be if the same men
were unemployed mouth after month.
