A Friendly Note Of Warning
When u man occupying tlio im].6i.t_uU nnd' high ollice of [.iouten.uu-Ciov-
< mor of a Province reels it incumbent on him to lift his voice in public protest agaiust ihc selfish attitude of people in Eastern Canada regarding; matter!, ol' viuil concern lo tlio prosperity and development oC tlio Provinces of
Western Canada, it i.s lime for those same .'..astern people and interests io
awaken to tho fuel that lh..y are playing a nationally dangerous game.
Lieutenant-Governor Brett, of Alberta, i.s not. a man to speak hastily or
without giving duo com-.idoration to the effect any statement from a man in
his position may have. He i.s a highly trained professional man, absolutely
impartial, strictly non-parlizuu in a political .sense, and intensely loyal to f
Canadian ideals and institutions. Vet on the occasion of a recent visit to
Ontario ho was, to use his own words, "goaded to exasperation" over the
attitude, assumed.by Eastern people towards tho West and its needs and problems to such an extent that he made known his mind in a newspaper interview in the course, of which he risked the very pertinent question: "If a barrier was placed at Von. William, what would happen to all the Eastern industries"
Answering his own  micsnoit.  Dr. Ih'eU declared  ihey would  be ruined.
Yo;  Eastern interests go on blindly, and  with a self-sufficiency amounting
to smugness, declaring to tho world and 'convincing themselves that they owe]
nothing to, the West; that on the contrary, il is the East that has made an<i j
developed the West, and thai his section ot the. Dominion is heavily in debt j
to them. .     j

annual matinees on Wednesday and
Saturday. Early this week, when it
became apparent that-thousands would
bc turned away unless the famous
comedy classic could be held over, arrangements were mado to extend the
engagement to Saturday night, April
2C. On the following Monday, April
2S, tlie company will move to Saskatoon, to split the week with engagements of three days each at the Empire Theatre in that city and tho Ite-
gin'a Theatre, lleginu.
Not since the farewell tour of Sir
J.--Forbes-Robertson has the Walker
Theatre hohl such large, enthusiastic
audiences as have surged in to meet
Bill Jones, the flirtatious vaudeville
actress, the Reno judge and the other
widely - discussed characters of
" Lightnin." Tho -thrilling courtroom scene, the hotel astrido the
California-No'vado state line and the
other high lights of the play have captivated Winnipeg audiences as completely as they dkl Broadway during

Of all the holidays in the year
Christmas and Easter stand more
prominently on the page of history than any others. Throughout all the nutations and vicis-
situdes that have entered into the
world's history during the past
two thousand years the two
festivals that commemorate respectively the birth' and the
resurrection of the Man of
Nazareth still shine with a luster
that remains unfaded after a
lapse of two centuries.
Easter was hot kept as a festival until the fifth or six century,
but previous to that the question
of establishing it as a feast day
came before the council of Nice,
when it was decidedly authoritatively that Easter was henceforth to be the Sunday following
the fourteenth day of the calendar moon which happened
upon or next after the 21st of
March so that this fourteenth day
be a Sunday, Easter was not to
be on that date "but ou the next
following Sunday. Easter day,
therefore,, may be on any day
within five weeks inclusive of
March 22 and April 25. It cannot happen earlier nor later than
these two dates. In 1883, Easter
occurred on March 25, and again
'in 1894, which will be twice in
the last century. Iu 1951 it will
occur again on March 25.

Midway United Farmers
The United Farmers meeting was
held in the Old School at Midway
on Saturday, April 5th. The president was in the chair". Tho attendance was. not as large as usual on
account of the auction sale. Visitors from Rock Crepk Local were
Major Gray and T. N. Walker.
It was decided that the Midway
Local of the U. F. would pay a
bounty on all gophers caught this
summer, as well as offer three
prizes. All tails to be turned in to
the secretary-treasurer on or before
the firBt Saturday in August.
Bounty to be 2c per tail. For the
greatest number of gophers caught
by one party a prize of 83 will be
given; second largest number 82
and the third largest 81. It is
hoped that everyone will take a
great interest in getting rid of this
pest. Encourage the children to
get all their gopher traps busy and
see who will win the prize. Perhaps parents will add a little to
the bounty for all gophers caught
on their place.
Next Saturday is to be clean-up
day in the new home of the TJ. F.
in the Dr. Jakes building. It is
hoped that everyone who can spare
the time will be there and prepare
a nice home for both the ladies and
mens locals; also a kitchen and
dining room for those popular and
much enjoyed lunches at the close
of the meetings.
The new officers for the ensuing

Phosphate Beds Wanted
With the large acreage under
cultivation in Western Canada
there will soon be a demand for bii
enormous amount of manures and
fertilizers in order to keep up a
good yield from the land, so that
the manufacture of fertilizer will
year by year become a more important and necessary industry in
this country. Among the constituents of these fertilizers phosphoric acid is probably the most
important, aud at the present time
all the phosphate rock for fertilizer
used in Canada is imported from
the United States.
Phosphate is a log grade material
that will only stand a limited expenditure on transportation, so
that it is important that an attempt
be made to discover workable deposits 6f this rock more adjncent to
the western grain fields.
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Co. of Canada, Ltd., ie
anxious to obtain Phosphate beds
and will make free analysis for
phosphoric acid for prospectors who
send samples to tbeir assay officp
at Trail, B.C., plaiuly marked with
the name and address of the prospector, ancLgiving the location from
which the samples were obtained
..Samples of Phosphate Rock can
be seen and copies^of a pamphlet
issued by the above company to aid
the prospector in locating such
deposits of Phosphate Rock, can be
had from the Government Agent,

Do you get the fullest use out of your telephone? Of course, you use it
to call up a friend, or place an order with a tradesman, but do you always
think of it when you need to do something personally? How many times
would the telephone save you time? If a business man, how much money
���would the telephone save you? -.Many trips could-be saved, if the telephone
were used instead. ,,- \
The telephone gives direct and prompt communication with that personal touch which brings both parties to a conversation close together. That
is why it has become one ofthe greatest factors, of business and social life."
