silver in a general way, although a

"I guess I've been given enough
already to pay for all that 1 can ever
do," Rugglcs answered. "Say, arc
these girls Turkish, or what?"
He looked at Miss Elliot with a
sudden curiosity. Until meeting her,
he had rather dreaded to let his mind
rest on his new and embarrassing responsibility,  but  this  reluctance  had
.    . 'laa!in his chair and closed his eyes
been   dispelled   within     the   last   few (Enjot noticcd with alarm the sudden

lu youth thc human mind is able to
adapt itself to an unexpected flood
of prosperity wilh wonderful faci'ity.
The tide of such an inundation is invariably tempered to a normal
warmth and marvelousiy buoyant.
This is perhaps because youth is ever
prone to dream of just such joyful
eventualities, ancl is often more perplexed by thcir delay than by a swift
and unexpected realization. No
youngster of romantic mind is ever
lo be greatly surprised at being suddenly presented with the deed of a
castle in  Spain. ~
Rugglcs, blessed with the heart of a
child was rapidly adapting himself to
jthe fulfillment of just .such fancies as
| had often amused his mind during
periods of repose. Tt cannot be said
that he was imaginative, but he possessed that happy faculty of fantasy
which is imagination-in its infancy.
He seemed to havc swum backward
aeainst the tides of the ages to the
Thousand'and One Nights. Nothing

"There," said shc, rising, "I've talked too long and tired you. Forgive

CHAPTER XIV.
A polite and po'ishcd Greek lawyer,
with a name which suggested the undulations  when   one' shakes   thc   end
of a  rope,  called  upon- Rugglcs ,and
but hc was    killed    at   Lule  offered   him  "proof  positive  of  much
Rosa's.a mischievous little |that had seemed like the dream of -i
lify to the possibilities awaiting thc
farmer who specializes in growing
grains and field crops for seed or �� ho
combine this phase of farming with
his other activities.
Seed growing in the Brooks district is a comparatively new industry
as thc district has been but very
sparsely settled up until lhe past ycar.
But in spite of the youth of the industry and thc sparsely settled nature of the district the great variety
and excellent quality of the seeds
shown there havc been a great surprise to the judges as well as to thc
settlers   themselves.
The seeds exhibited were all grown
in thc district during the past ycar
and consisted of the following: ���
Grimm, Baltic ancl common alfalfa;
white and yellow sweet clover; red,
white "and alsikc clover; both spring
and winter vetch; field peas; four
varieties of garden peas; six of garden beans; flax; barley; oats; wheat;
potatoes;     northwestern     dent    and
o
white flint corn.
This is the first "time that such a
large number of varieties of local-
grown seeds have ever been brought
together at onc place in the Brooks-
Bassano district, and many of the
local growers, aftcr carefully examining thc quality of the large number
of varieties shown, declare that thc
future of the seed growing business
in this district is now assured.
Premier Martin Says Loan Companies Will Handle Business in
Organized Areas
Measures which will bc provided by
thc Saskatchewan legislature for furnishing seed grain in the districts
where there -were crop failures were
outlined by Premier Martin in the
Saskatchewan assembly during the
debate on the reply to the address
from the throne. The bill to be
brought down during the session,
Premier Martin informed the house,
would make provision to enable the
loan companies as far as possible to
handle seed grain relief in the organized municipalities, the loan companies having performed this service satisfactorily last ycar.
While Mr. Martin did not state
what provisions would bc madc in
thc bill for seed grain reiicf in the
unorganized areas, he informed thc
Canadian Press that similar measures
to those in force last year wou'd bej
proposed. In other words it is the
intention that the fcdcral jovernment
shall look aftcr thc requirements
where unpatented lands arc concerned
and in thc case of patented lands the
provincial government will furnish
the grain bul' the provincial machinery will bc utilized for administrative
purposes in both cases.

Our Western Country as the Centre
of Possibilities in Growth
of Population
An English manufacturer of cutlery, a Sheffield man, has bought property in Winnipeg, likewise a building, where he will shortly establish
liis business. It is his'intention to
make a move from England to Canada, bringing out his special machinery ancl his operatives.
This is __.au extremely significant
move, an event'of great importance,
not only to Winnipeg, but to the
whole Canadian West. It is evident
that this British manufacturer looks
upon our western country as the centre of possibilities in growth of population and business, the likeliest part
of the great Dominion in which to
establish a manufacturing  concern.
He must also havc come to the
conclusion that the .post-war conditions which have played havoc with
the manufacturing business, in old
England arc more favorable for capital in Western Canada than anywhere
else in thc..world. The outlook for
English factory owners, who once
held thc world's trade in the hollow
of their hands, because of low cost
of living arid consequent low wages in
thc old country, is now dreary in
the extreme.
In futuie it will bc necessary for
them to. compete on equal wage conditions with manufacturers in Canada
and thc United States, who havc their
raw material at their back door, so lo
speak, while thcy have lo haul il immense distances to England before
they can bi'gin the process of manufacture. During recent months the
mircrs in the United Kingdom "-have
succ��edccl in getting such advance in
wage* lhal the price of coal to maiui-
faclin ��.rs has been gieatly increased,
thus (tiding to thcir cost of pro'duc-
tion. And in addition to these scnous
handicaps, English manufacturers are
groanirg under a weight of taxation
to which thcir brothers in Canada are
comparative stiangers.
Wherefore this shrewd Shcflie'd
knifemaker is cutting the Gordian
knot and escaping from beneath an
insupportable load by transferring his
whole business, stock, Jock and barrel
to Winnipeg. If other manufacturers
in England do likewise, Canada will
soon bc the centre of population in
thc Biitish Empire. ��� The Calgary

Imperial Conference
Of War Veterans
Proposed That an Inter-Imperial
Organization Be Formed
Thc holding of an inter-imperial
conference of the veterans of the
great war on land, on sea and in the
air is being seiiougly mooted. Thc
suggestion some time- ago was
broached among the veterans of Canada. The Dominion executive of
that body of men is now in receipt
of a communication from the vetcjans
of South Afiica suggesting that such
a conference be held al the cailiesl
possible date at Capetown. Thc point
is claimed lo be thc most cciitral point
for the foregathering of the fighting
men of Canada, Austialia, Ncw Zealand, Newfoundland, Great Britain
and the other portions of the empire
which participated in the conflict.
It is proposed that representatives
of soldiers' and bailors' organizations
be"sent and that an intcr-impcrial organization be formed for thc furthering of good comradeship among the
men who fought for the common
cause, and for intcr-communicalion on
matters in which all arc concerned.
Should the organization be'formed
it would constitute one of the most
formidable /fraternal associations -in
thc world. The proposal is receiving
consideration.
Old Folks' Coughs,

This Tells of a Method That
Cures Without Using"'
Drugs
Elderly people take cold easily. Unlike young folks, thcy recover slowly.
That is _why so many people "past
middle lifc die of pneumonia.
Cough Syrups seldom do much
good because thcy upset digestion.
Any doctor knows that a much more
effective treatment is "CATARRHOZONE," which heals and soothes the
irritated surfaces of the throat.
Tn using Catarrhozone you do not
take medicine into the stomach���you
simply breathe into thc thro.il, nose
and lungs rich piney balsamic vapor,
so full of healing power that colds,-1
catarrh ancl bronchitis "disappear almost instantly.
The germ-killing balsamic vapor
] mixes wilh the breath, descends
through the throat, down lhe-bronchial lubes, and finally reaches the
deepest air cells in the limes. All
parts arc soothed with lich, pure
medicinal essences, whereas with a
syrup thc affected parts could not bc
reached and harm would result
through benumbing the stomach with
drugs.

Amalgamated Dominion Police  May
Extend Scale of Activity
To  East *
The     amalgamation of the  Royal

Dominion    police    force    under   the
namc of the Royal Canadian Mounted _
Police,   which  was  authorized  by  an
act passed at thc last' session of par-"
liament, will bc completed by a proclamation  by the  governor-general  in-
cotincil.       Wilh  thc  passage  of  thc -���
order-in-council, executive control of
the   police   force   will  be  centralized
at Ottawa.
Thc Royal Noi th-West Mounted
Police have been gradually growing
in strength. Enlistment for overseas
military service reduced the numbcis
of the force, which in May last stood
"al^about 500. The strength has now
xiiscn again lo 1,800.--This autumn, a
new post was crpened at Barnard hai-
bor, on Coronation Gulf, in a tract of
territory rich in copper and oil resources.
Thc governinc.nl is said to have
been urged to extend the jurisdiction
of thc Royal Canadian Mounted Police into Eastern Canada.
There is a suggestion that it may
assign a portion.of thc force to Noi-
thern Ontario.-' In Western " Canada -
thc mounted police have long been
used as preventive officers lo suppress
smuggling in violation of thc Customs
Tariff Act. They may"now, it is said,
be appointed preventive officers under
tlic provisions of lhe Inland Revenue
Act to put a stop to thc operation of
illicit liquor stills, which are slated
to have become very numerous in the
Dominion.  r
Ofificials at the hqad of the North- -
West Mounted Police have been considering the feasibility of utilizing aircraft as an aid in patrolling thc orcat
northern hinterland of thc Dominion.
It has been suggcstecT'that at the outset a- lighter-than-air machine should
be employed; that routes- should be '
mapped out ancl stations established,
and that then the airplanes might ba
brought in thc service.

Reserve Land Settled

Balloting /or Farms on Former In?

at Edmonton
It is announced by ihe Soldier Settlement Board of Canada that balloting took place at Edmonton recently
- for the 33 parcels of land in thc Bobtail Indian Reserve near Ponoka, Alberta. This reserve " was purchased
from thc Indians by the government
and turned over to the board for
soldier settlement. There were 91 ap--|
plicants. Twenty-five parcels were
sold at prices ranging from $8 to $20
per acre. This was considerably below values of adjacent properties.
The fust ticket fell to J. W. Kerr,
and hc secured his parcel at $1S pei
acre.
Thc whole reserve comprises 6619
acres of good agricultural land. Thc
system of drawing was the same as
used at thc opening of the Porcupine
"reserve, thc ballots being placed in a
churn and an outsider making thc
���draw.

Creed for the Discouraged
I believe that God created me to
be happy, to enjoy fehe blessings of
life, to be useful to my fellow-beings, and an honor to my country.
I believe thafe the trials which
beset me today are bufe the fiery
tests by which my character,, is
strengthened, ennobled and made
worthy to enjoy the higher things
of life, which I believe are in store
fore me.
I believe that my soul is" too
grand to be crushed by defeat; I
will rise above ife.
I believe that I am fehe archi tect
of my own fate; therefore,
I will be master of circumstances
and surroundings, nob their slave.
I will not yield to discouragements, I will trample them under
foot and make feliem serve as stepping stones to success. I will conquer my obstacles and turn them
into opportunities.
My failures of today will help
feo guide me on to victory on the
morrow.
The morrow will biiug new
strength, new hopes, new opportunities and new beginnings. I
will be ready to meet ife with a
brave heart, a calm mind and an
undaunted spirit.
In all things I will do my best,
and leave the rest to  the Infinite.
I will not waste my mental
energies by useless worry. I will
learn to dominate my restless
thoughts and look on the bright
side of things.
I will face the world bravely, I
will not be a coward. I will assert
my God-given birthright and be a
man. For I am Immortal, and
nothing can overcome me.���Virginia Opal Myers.
