CHAPTER II.
Daddy Farncy was dying. He lay
stretched on a cot of furs, his glazing
eyes fastened to the tiny window covered with oiled moose-skin as though
his last look would be on thc sunlight he had always loved with a
natural-born woodman's devotion.
The peaceful expression very often
seen on the faces of those who die
from gunshot wounds cloaked the
rugged- hardness of the face of the
man who had been a trapper for fifty
years", and more or less a defier and
violater of the law ever since he had
been able to set a trap.

Maybe it'll last 'till I go. It's a heap
better'n water. You slip along an'
send Dorkin in here."
Hc lay, with eyes closed, as the
woodsman entered. The sunlight had
slipped away from the glazed window; thc fire had died to a smouldering heap. Outside, a freshening
breeze stirred the fir woods, as low
in the heavens spread a widening canopy of cloud. Dorkin knelt besides
the couch and lifted one of thc old
man's hands.
"Daddy Fat'ney," he said sympathetically, "this isJiard luck."
"It's comin' on to storm, ain't it,
Dorkin?" asked the trapper, opening
his eyes. "I fancy I hear them old
trees  a-giievin'."
"Yes, Daddy, it's going to-storm."
"Wall, that's all right. I allcrs
reckoned I'd like to pass out of this
wild world I know so well was cryin'.
It's better than havin' to trek across
when thc sun was on thc leaves an'
the birds were singin'."
Dorkin was silent.
"Let me havc a look at the wound,
Daddy," he said at length; "maybe I
can do something."
"Look all ye like, bul.yc can't do
nuthin'," whispered the trapper.
Dorkin gently unwrapped the clumsy bandage from about thc wound,
which lay low down behind the
shoulder. The heavy soft-nosed bullet had gone clean through, leaving a
gaping hole. Onc glance was sufficient for him to realize that there, was
no earthly help for thc trapper.-Gently hc replaced thc bandage, and sat
looking down at the ashing face before him.
The trapper opened his eyes and
fastened thcm upon Dorkin's facc.
"I want to speak to you 'bout Wilier,"
lie said. "I know you're a square
man, an' when I go I want you to
look arter her.   Will ye do it?"
He asked the question with a directness that had always been a strong
characteristic of him. t
"Surely," answered Dorkin quickly,
"if you wish it, Daddy."
"Wall,   I   do  wish.  it.       I  wish  it
more'n    anything else in  the world/iv
Dorkin.     Go   over  thar  and  lift  up

,;-Farney sank, back, utterly .exhausted,  and-v.'lich' Dorkin  returned from
executing 'the order, his    mind    was

of the woodsman's cooF hand.oiv the

partly back into the present.' ."
"You.got it?", hc-whispered.   -.
'   "Yes, Daddy, I'have it. -

Forming A Pig Club
Linking the Agricultural Club and the
School Into a Constructive
Program of Performance
Instead of teaching boys and girls
to leave the quiet and industry of the
farm for the glamor and hurly-burly
of'the cty, the educational and agricultural authorities of numerous rural
communities arc effectively linking
the agricultural club and the school
into a constructive program of performance. The pig club member and
the school boy are one, and their interests arc common. Onc country organization is distinctive and'the injunction, "Stop, Sec My Pig," on the
posters of members has something behind it. The idea had its inception
during 1919 Avhcn the. country, agricultural agent and county, superintendent of schools selected 10 schools fo:
the organization of boys' agricultural
clubs. Thc, teachers of the schools
wcrc acquainted witli-the plans at
their county meeting..
The organization af the administration machinery of the agricultual
clubs was unique. Tlie county agent
and .superintendent of education named two advisory committeemen for
each community, the third committeeman being selected by the first
two. Farmers, members of school
boards, and bankers constituted the
personnel of thc advisory committee.
Thc county agent aud superintendent
of education held a conference, when
it was decided not only lo give thc
advisory committee a look-in upon
the plans, but to extend invitations
to the farmer* and business men of
the community.* Partnership between
father and son iu pig club work was
duly stressed. The pig project was
adopted and an average of 15 boys
enlisted iu each of the 10 clubs.
The advisory committee parcelled
thc work and aided the club members
in maintaining records and weighing
their pigs. Monthly meetings were
held, the attendance representing the
various interests of thc community.
Each club member received the profit-
accruing from his (activity. The business men of thc county contributed
10 scholarships of $30 value each, to
bc awarded thc winner in each of the
clubs. A $40 library was donated to
the'community club making the best
general showing. The business men
raised by popular subscription $100 to
construct pens at the pig club show.
The pens are collapsible in form and
will be retained forfuture service.
The day of the big show was a
county-wide rally with an attendance
of 1,500. The pig club agent says:
"It was the best instance of organized
efficency I havc ever seen in my six
years of extension, work. A county
organization made "up of community
"organization's w��?s."fully vindicated" as',
the most effective ".way t.o put on con--

Great Shipping Growth
Commerce on Great Lakes Has Increased  Immensely
In the course of an article in the
View on the proposed ncw deep
waterway from the Great Lakes to
the sea, interesting statistics are presented respecting the growth of shipping on thesc fresh-water bodies.
In 1850,. thc records show,- the entire volume of freight on the Great
Lakes amounted to only about 25,000
tons, carried on by a few small vessels. In 1916 there were 37,852 passages of vessels through the Detroit
River, with a registered tonnage of
morc than 76,000,000, cary 100,000,000
tons of freight of an estimated value
of more thau $1,000,000,000.
In 1917 and 1918, owing to causes
arising out of the war, this enormous
water commerce was slightly reduced,
but already .there is reason to believe
that it will be immensely increased
during thc next few years. The tonnage is already many times greater
than that which passes through thc
Suez Canal.

Scotswood Works Largest and Best
Equipped in British Empire
London, England.���The world-wide
shortage of locomotives and rolling
stock which has' resulted from five
years of warfare is an obii^cle of .he
first magnitude which must be surmounted beforc international transport and trade relations can be resumed on anything like normal conditions.
One of the largest .engineering
firms, whilst war was still proceeding
foresaw that an acute shcytage of this
J kind was to be expected when peace
came. The ��� directors of this firm
therefore carefully arid methodically
laid lhcir plans, with a view to ensuring that this country should at any
rate receive its fair share c-f the vast
contracts for locomotives which after
thc war would undoubtedly have to'be
placed.
These carefully prepared arrangements havc now materialized, and at
the present time the Armstrong-
Whitworth company is making a remarkable bid for thc premier position
amongst locomotive builders throughout thc world. Thc erstwhile ammunition works at Scotswood on Tync-
sidc wcrc allocated for thc construction of locomotives. Immediately aftcr thc armistice thcy commenced
their reorganization in this" direction,
with a forceful thoroughness which
has brought a splendid success.
Within the short space of a year
the vast ammunition plant has been
swept away, ncw plant installed, and
thc first Armstrong Whitworth locomotive���a powerful O-S-0 type for thc
North Eastern Railway ��� was completed and delivered from their
works. Today the Scotswood locomotive works arc thc largest and
best equipped works of tlicir-kind in'
the Britisii Empire. Their present
output, capacity is ovcr 'lOO heavy
main.line engines per year.
It is, understood, however, that the
support which the new x\rmstrong enterprise has received from all parts
of the world i.s such that consideration is now being given to new and
important extensions iu regard to llie
works. The result of such proposed
extensions would be to make the
Scotswood works probably the most
important centre.in the world for the
construction of locomotives. Even
under present conditions, the company anticipates lhat by lhe summer
of 1920, the oulput will have increased
to nol less than 45 locomotives per
week. _

Military Law Carrfed Out In Few
Cases Early in thc War.
In the course of an article in a leading English paper one comes across
a casual mention of the fact that during the war 343 officers and men in
the British forces were "summariiy
punished with death 4or desertion iu
thc facc of thc enemy, sleeping oii
duty and such oilier offences as arc
capital crimes under military law.
gives    home - staying    civilians
It
something of' a shock to learn that
there were so many of these cxecu-
tiens ��� men facing firing squads.by
sentence of court - martial. The percentage of'thesc cases -seems to havc
been aboul one man in 20,000 of those
'under" arms throughout the period of
the war.        ...     , -" -
"Military law.leaves a court-martial
no option but lo impogc the death
sentence for' certain otlenccs on -active service,.'and, no doubt, in the Canadian forces thc" military law-was carried, out in^a few cases early" in the
war. ��� Iiui later on, as the,"Canadians
:bcgau to find themselves, lliey-began
lo .assert-their, own views of things.
They largely abolished the use of- the
firing-.squad as a means of ensuring
discipline. They revolted'at thc idea'
of it, and considered it unnecessary.
In many ;cases*"when'a man deserted
in the face of thc enemy lie was givcii
another' chance "to go over the. top,
acquitted himself splendidly :and regained good islanding: Many a young
-fellow, was  found asleep, al-his post
and-was-not reported'at all, simply.,
because death,by a'firing squad was
ilie_-penally.-.-. .--;������' - - -h--.-- ���=..- X-.--X. .-_.-_-
"It is   safe -to, say,   however,   that,
'while-. few Canadians were    actually.
.shot by order of ."court-martial; there
were7 score's "or ' perhaps eveii. hundreds of them condemned to", death.
Forccrtaiii offences military, law allows- .no  lesser-, sentence. ��� '."��� But thc
.verdict would" be. accompanied .with'a
recommendation .'to .:mercy.- - This
would fjo'to .the. -bngaclicrrgeiicr_a!,
who. would endorse it. with his- advice
that the sentence be commuted to 20
years' imprisonment. The- divisional
commander would advise that the
sentence, be reduced to three years.
General Currie, on receiving it, would
probably endorse it with a recommendation that the sentence be reduced to one year, and when it finally got back to the regiment it would
be found.that General Haig had reduced the sentence to three^ months.
Yet, while this course was followed,
it cannot bc said that discipline in
the Canadian corps suffered by it in
any practical way. Men who were
weak and unreliable were weeded out,
sent back^to bomb-proof jobs and not
allowed to weaken the chain of steel
that stretched across the path of the ���
enemy at the front.

Canada Needs More Workers
With prcseiu prospects for a bumper crop iu Western Canada this year
���the brightest since 1914' says the
Winnipeg. Free Press���with the railway companies all clamoring for
thousands of unskilled laborers lo be
used in construction work, coupled
with Ihe announcement lhal if they
' are not obtainable hundreds of'.miles
of badly needcel branch lines cannot
bc built; with such a shortage of
coal predicted thai Western Canada
will be forced to rely entirely upon
lhc production from ils own mines,
and with extensive road-building-programs being deferred because thc
necessary labor cannot bc obtained,
the question of immigration to this
country, once again looms up as one
of paramount importance.
. During the war immigration \vas
practically at a standstill, -and, in addition, thc energies of all people were
diverted to 'war effort. As a consequence development work and construction programs of all kinds wcrc
halted. Now, after an inlcrrcgum of
mx years, there is an enormous
amount of work to be done in order
lo "catch up." Therc may be a suffi-j
ciency of skilled labor, bul there is
admittedly a great shortage of unskilled workers. Yet there must bc
unskilled workers in order that the
skilled workers may bc kept employed.
No dotibl Canada could obtain all
thc-foreign labor il requires if il let
down lhc immigration bars, and threw
thc doors wide open to all and sundry who cared to come. .But Canadians havc made up thcir,niinds not
lo repeat the mistakes of the- pasl.
The industrious, law-abiding, physically fit and morally clean of all" the
white races will be welcomed, but no
'longer will the offscourings .of Eur-
j_opc, the ,mentally^deficient, thc morally lepcrous, the physically unclean
and weak, bc allowed to enter Canada
. to pollute this country, carry infection lo'othcrj, and lowered the standard of our people.
The difficulty of securing, the right
type of immigrants, thc only kind wc
are prepared to" receive and. welcome,
is increased by thc fact that'while
the war-impoverished countries of
Europe arc willing to allow the'misfits and degenerates, of lhcir people
to emigrate, thcy are anxious  to re-
��� tain the strong ancl sound in order
to re-establish all the productive enterprises of their own lands. Canada's problem of securing inimigianls
of thc right and only acceptable type
is, therefore, no easy one;
According to United Slates government immigration officials only lack
of ships is keeping back hundreds of
thousands of prospective European
immigrants    from    flocking   to   that
_ country notwithstanding thc posl-\V3r-
passport restrictions. " The Chicago
Tribune declares that "nearly six
thousahd aliens in many European
countries have applied for pcrmissio'n
to emigrate to America." and iTJic
Literary Digest says that for more
lhan a month immigrants have been
arriving in the United Stales at the
rate of  leu  thousand weekly.
Jt will be seen, therefore, that notwithstanding thc proscriptions now
enforced by tlie United Statcs and
Canada on undesirables, and the efforts of European countries to" retain
* those of their own people who are
of the desirable immigrant.'type, .workers can bc 'obtained if thc govern,-
inent- immigration officials, bestir
themselves. ��� In particular,-Canada
should  stiivo to  secure new settlers
- "and real workers' from   thc    British
* Isles and the United Stales.
.Other countries,are .active and are
offering  inducements   to  the  immig
rants..  We. read in a United States
paper:   -   . '    , '- /���
"'���Numbers bf Italians, Spaniards,
and French arc going to Argentina,
where there are many of. these nationalities ' already located. Free land is
being given to the newscomers..
��� "Brazil is not only paying passage
for immigrants, but takes xarc of
them on arrival, and transports Ihem
free to tlicir destination.
"Chile is inducing immigration by
giving onc hundred acres Aid implements  to  each immigrant.
"New, Zealand has arranged with
thc shipping companies for reduced
fares for desirable immigrants."
. ,Sp, ^Canada will havc many competitors in thc effort to secure desirable settlers and workers. Yet no
student of present day conditions in
this country can question the need of
additional.population'in this country.
Without it, people nowthcrc must carry unduly heavy burdens .of taxation,
while at thc same lime going without
conveniences and services lo which
thcy are entitled and need in order to
prosper as thcy should.
Governments can do much, but every individual can assist by making
the newcomer welcome and assisting
hini in cvery possible way to'"makc
.good," 'and thereby become'a satisfied and contented citizen, while the
lot of the hired man or woman should
bc madc as pleasant as' it is iu the
power of the employer lo make it.

���thousands miserable. Night after

Similarity in Food Prices,
Cost in Ottawa Slightly Higher Than
;   In London, England
,A remarkable similarity iu the cos I
of groceries in England and in Canada is revealed in a'comparison of a
budget ot household, staples iu the
two countries, made within the last
month. Thc figures are given out by
a Canadian official- Pricing a score
of staples, ranging from bread to
custard powder, the whole _ supply
costs about a dollar more iu Ottawa
lhan in London, Englarfd. Bread is
4'cents higher in Canada; sugar is ten
cents per i>ound higher, and.jam and
marmalade -range from ten cents to
18 cents higher here. But in England bacon, eggs, lard, milk, sausages,
Worcester sauce, rice, oranges and
dried fruits are all higher in pricc.
Eggs were $1 a dozen, and butter
about $1.10 a pound for'good grade.
Both thesc prices arc due lot a sharp
decrease in London, however. Vegetables arc still much cheaper in England" than in Canada,' and butcher
meats average from 30 to' -40 cents
a pound. Coal is.'about $1.25 a ton
cheaper'in*" .England:   -:

Watches Cloned With Bread
No Other Substance Can be Used
With Success
Perhaps the most novel use to
which bread is put may- be seen in
somc of thc great watch factories,
where more than 40 loaves of ftesh
bread a��;, or were beforc thc war,
sometimes used each day. From earliest times iu the history of watchmaking it has been the cusloYn Jo
reduce fresh bread lo the form of
dough. This dough is used for removing oil aud chips that naturally
adhere in the course of manufacture
to pieces as small as thc parts of a
watch. There arc many parts of a
watch, by-llte-way, that arfe so~ small
a's.lo be barely visible to the naked
eye. The oil is absorbed by this
dough, and the- chips stick to it, and
there is no other known substance
which can be used as a wiper without leaving some of its particles attached to thc thing wiped. This accounts for thc continued usc of bread
dough iff. thc watchmaking history.
Trouble Brewing
Trouble is brewing in connection
with the taking ovcr of German airships by the Entente as provided for
in the Peace Treaty, according to
thc Fricdrichshaven corrcsppndent of

REVIEW: THE NOBLE LIFE OF
SAMUEL
The method of aeview must largely
be determined by the teacher and the
grade of the class. For the junior
and intermediate grades a good way
will be to makc it .biographical, centering in Gideon, Eli, Samuel, Eli's
sons, Saul and David. Of course, the
outstanding personality is Samuel.
For the older classes thc following
from Peloubel's Select Notes is an
interesting and profitable niclhod:
''This review, suited lo older classes only, will deal with difficult questions involved in or suggested by the
various lessons of the quarter, questions thai you may nol have had

Getting A Start in the West
Choosing the Best Time to Come to
Western  Canada
Those who contemplate coming to
western Canada arc interested in
knowing when is,,thc best time to
come to this country. Experience
has shown that the best results arc
obtainable from land that bas been
broken during the summer onc year
and allowed to stand and put into
crop the following season. Thc best
timc for breaking raw land iu western Canada is during the months of
June aiid July. Then the grass is
long and the sod turned over at this
timc properly disintegrates, thus ensuring an excellent seed bed for
planting thc  following spring.
Of course, considerable land in
Western Canada is broken and put
into crop the same season. Flax or
oats is then generally sown because
these giinc ripen morc quickly than
wheat, but sometimes wheat is sown
on spring-broken land. Often very
good crops are harvested from such
land, so that thc land begins to pay
for itself the first season, but it is
doubtful if the results in lhc long run
arc as good as when the sod has been
broken when the grass is fresh and
long the# previous summer.
From the above it is seen that from
thc middle of May to the end of
July is the very besl lime to lake up
land in Western Canada in order to
prepare it for crop the following year.
This is especially true this year, when
the enormous amount of moisture has
^placed the land in an ideal condition
for  breaking.
Livestock Often
Shrink in Transit
Can bc Avoided by Proper Precautions in Shipping
Investigation by the Colorado Agricultural College is beginning to
shoAv that shrinkage of live , stock
when shipped to market can bc very
greatly reduced. The most important
thing is a comfortable car and/not
much crowding. The next thing is to
havc the animals well fed and contented when thcy arc loaded and until
thcy arc sold at thc terminal market.
In other words, plenty of feed and
walcr and comfortable quarters are
most important.
"Somc farmers," says R. W. Clark,
live stock specialist for that institution, "ship regularly wilh little or no
shrinkage, while others at all limes
have enormous shrinkage."
Plow  Summer/fallow Early
Plowing Should Be Completed Early
In July at the Latest
Thc chief purposes of lhc summer-
fallow are to store moisture and to
kill weeds. Rains falling on freshly-
plowed land arc more readily absorbed. Thc water is retained belter,
partly because the surface can bc cultivated to_ reduce evaporation and
also because there is no loss by the
transpiration through the leaves of
weeds. Thc latter is an important
consideration, as it lakes about 500
pounds of walcr to produce a pound
of dry matter in common weeds.
Furthermore thc rains falling on
plowed land help to firm it, and nature thus docs for nothing what costs
money if done by mechanical means.
The plowing should bc completed
early in July at thc latest.
Plowing should be deep, at least
seven inches, to provide a good reservoir for moisture. FoIIoav thc plow
with the harrow,,preferably a section
attached to thc plow, unless there is
danger of drifting. In that case pack
instead of harrowing. Thc weeds
may be kept down and a mulch of
small lumps and granules maintained
by using the duckfoot cultivator. The
disc pulverises thc soil of a summer-,
fallow -unduly and increases the tendency to  drift.
Anglo-Saxon Next to Frendi#Tongue
Employed in Moslem
Empire
The Germans have failed in their
effort to stamp their culture upon thc
Turk and, instead, the English language is beginning to rank next to
French in thc commercial life of thc.
Levant.      .,'
. In thc war period German language
schools wcrc opened throughout Constantinople, in which German officers
were required to teach and German
papers were circulated by all possible
means. But thc, results were almost
nil. Most of thc schools were free
and failed to attract better-classes,
and French was too strongly entrenched as thc language of trade and
social intercourse to be displaced.
Since the armistice Italians havc
been working .industrially to .popularize thcir language and literature. Italian officers arc now teaching schools
as the Germans did. But their schools
are well attended only in the poorer
parts of the city.
Turkish is but little use'd in important commercial transactions in
Constantinople as nearly all business
men of whatever nationality speak
French. The English who have been
in business in'Turkey for years generally transact their' business in
French.

Art of Felling' Chimneys

Farmers Now Consider Dairy Cows
As Business Proposition
The high prices now paid for pure
bred dairy cattle lead many tc think-
that the dairy farm must bc a veritable gold mine, and as milk aud butter are universal foods, thc public is
deeply interested in thc facts behind
Uie bottle of 'milk and the brick of
butter.
Fifty ycaas ago western dairying
was au accidental indusliy. What
llie cow happened to give, the farmer
took, and passed on to thc consumer
at what he could happen to get. What
the farmer got from his cow was pin
money; the cow was not debited with
her board, but was looked upon as a
benevolent creature, whatever her
peiformancc at the pail.
Today the cow is a business proposition.     Bran   is. worth $50 a ton;
"cowfeed,"  a balanced ration, is $70
a ton.   'Hay is worth $20, sometimes
rising to $40.   Pasture land, of whicli
the cow must have at least two acres,
is  worth from $200 to $300 an acre.\

Dr. Frank Crane says that fche
Overall Club is a step in the right
direction.
It is the common sense of the
people asserting itself.
Railing at profiteers is profitless;
for they are only human beings,
doing what ever one of us is doing
all fche time, to wit and namely.
Asking as big a price as we think
the customer will pay. And bo
long as the buyer goes on paying,
the seller will go on asking.
Ifc is simple, natural law, and
you cau no more Bfcop it by passing
laws in the State House, or screaming in the newspapers, or indulging in profanity on fche street corners than the w. k. Mrs. Partington could sweep back the incoming
tide of fche sea with her petulant
broom.
The only way to thwart the hog
is to quit buying anything afc a hog
.price.
I want feo join the overall club
and will consider ifc the proudest
moment of my. life when my wife
and other, managers will allow me
to walk down the street in blue
'.jeans.   .
But thftfc is only. a starter!
"What'_s the matter with; an anti-
jewjryj club? Can't .we organize
something to make the woman
. whose fingers are covered with
diamonds realize tbat she is vulgar,;
and that decent people resent her
'-company?.- ;'      iy ; _.'���/' _..-';. .
And while we ate at it, why not
strike against fche  whole tribe of
spoilers,  all  those thafe use their
money1 with which    fortune   has
. favored them, hot to.help anybody,
not to encourage thrift and culture
and simplicity,, but to hurfc everybody, to arouse envy, fco stimulate
