Labor Day at Rock Creek was
celebrated by a picnic and  sports,
on the land of W. Johnson across
the river from Riverside and  were
conducted    by   the   new District
Association of the Greenwood Riding of the United Farmers of B. C,
refreshments being provided by the
Rock Creek Woman's Local.    The
weather was not altogether  propitious, but in spite of that a large
number of people succeeded apparently in thoroughly enjoying themselves, watching  the baseball and
races and chatting with old friends.
The younger generation  seemed to
be able to eDJoy ice cream in   the
somewhat     arctic     temperature,
whereas tea and coffee were most
popular with their   elders.     The
feature of the afternoon was a very
interesting address by  Mr. Cope-
land,   a former   president of   the
U. F. B.C. and now  a vice-president.    Space does not permit of
more than  a  brief raview7 of the
moBt important points of his speech.
Mr. Copeland was anxious to make
it clear that  the U. F.   movement
was in no way antagonistic to the
Farmers Institutes,   but came into
being because the latter body being
subsidised by the Government was
not   a   free   agent' and   therefor
not   able   to   indulge   in   certain
activities   -which    were   vital   to
the interests of the farmers.    He
then proceeded  to show how the
only Way the farmer could hope to
save himself in the present parlous
state of   agricultural    depression
was by organization and co-operation,   as at the present moment,
contrary to   the   practice   of the
manufacturers   who   set. his own
prices,  the farmers" had  to   take
what was given  to him, and was
lucky at prices ruling in most lines
if he'was able to cover the expense
of production.    Mr. Copeland then
gave a  brief account of what had
been done to obtain  stock-yards at
the   coast.    It   appears   that   the
II. F. have an offer of a free site
at South Vancouver worth $30,000
and a prospectus is now being prepared with  a view tq raising the
necessary capital among stock men I
to   erect   the   stock   yards,    Mr.
Copeland explained that the TJ. F.
B. C. was not in politics as a body
but  that   a   platform   was   being
drafted by a committee with a view
to forming a Farmers   Party,   outside the TJ. F. B. C. . SpeakiDg as
a private individual Mr.   Copeland
said that altho he. did -=not wish to
see a.Farmer Government in power
in B.C., he-Relieved . it absolutely
necessary in the interests, of farmers that there Bh6uld.;be: a certain
number'of farmers in the House-at
-Victoria- pledged.. to';, .-protect -.the
farmers , interest?   and   hob as-at
present, pledged first fro.their party-
and thento. themselves and if anything left over .to their constituents.';
He :concluded his remarks on the
political ..situation; .as it affects, the
farmer, 7by . asking; what   people
would think .of a man; who hitched
twohorses .to'.the'one end of a plow
and; two tpthe other Tend and then
drove them opposite directions and
that, he said...was. the sitiiatiorijof
the   farmers   in- B.C.   tdday, half
voting Liberal,, half. Conservative,
and    accomplishing    nothing -. for
themselves.    The speech concluded
with a very hearty vote of thanks
accompanied by three cheers.   .
-  The festivities concluded with a
Dance at -the  Co-Operative- Hall.
There was a record  attendance of
close on 200, aided by a good .floor,
dainty   refreshments, and. Bush's

The holiday camp for Boy Scouts
was opened at Christina Lake on-
Aug. 23rd in charge of Capt. P. S.
Thompson, Scoutmaster of the
Grand Forks Troup.- The Camp
was pitched on English point facing -west, sheltered Hay the cedat
and cottoiiwood trees at the mouth
of McCrae creek. Six tents were
pitched to shelter- the 21 campers
representing the Grand Forks,
Rossland and Midway Troops���
the latter in charge of Rev. D. E.
D. Robertson 'and Bruce Gray
The weather during the first
week was excellent and quite a
considerable amount of scout work
was successfully accomplished in
addition to camp routine and such
pastimes as swimming, fishing and
exploring.      ,
The   general   daily   programme
was  reville   7   a.m.   followed   by
physical exercise, bathing,  prayers
and  flag  raising.    Breakfast   was^
timed for 8 o'clock.    The morning"
would be devoted  to camp chores
and scout work until bathing parade   at   11.    Between   dinner   at
noon and  supper at 6 all campers
were free to explore the country or
occupy themselves arqund camp as
they  pleased  and  after supper a
group around the camp  fire either
sang songs, told stories, or listened
to the reading of a book of adventure. ""' For one day the campers had
the  pleasure of the   company   of
Mr. Fergie, provincial-' inspector of
the  Y.M.C.A.  camps  who added
much  to  the life of the gathering
round the camp fire.    On Sunday
evening the' landing stage had the
appearance   of   a 7 buey   sea   port
when five.or six launches lent by '
kind  friends  from   the settlement
brought back all campers from the
service held at the Pavilion.
On Tuesday Mr. Fielding spent
the day at camp and demonstrated
to the boys rudimentary surveying
and use of instruments. The same
day the first lady visitors arrived.
They kindly left cakes and fruit
which were a very welcome addition to the larder.
The.following is a report of work
I in the shape of tests qualifying for
promotions,   accomplished   during
the first seven days of camp:

The Public Suffers And  Pays
from Detroit on August. 27 reported Henry Ford
oi:_lhe coal shortage caused by the strike of the
A newspaper despatch
lis saying ihat, as a result
miners, 105,000 employees of tlie Ford Motor Company throughout the United
States would be thrown out or employment on September 16, and tliat in addition several hundred thousand other workers employed in industries lurnish-
1 ing materials for the Ford plants would be forced into idleness. In other
words, the means of livelihood of between one and two million people would
be cut off.
These hundreds of thousands of men and their families are to suffer
through no act of their own, nor because of any dispute with their employers
���because it is well-known that tlie Ford employees are well paid and well
treated���but solely because of a labor conflict between the coal operators and
the miners, and the attempts being made to settle thir differnces of opinion
by the waging of an industrial war, instead of endeavoring to reach an amicable settlement through an arbitration conference.
Why should these people be made the innocent victims of the unreasonableness and greed of others?"' Is our boasted civilization such a poor thing
that leaders in public life, in finance and industry, and in the direction of organized labor, cannot devise any better method of settling their disputes than
by a resort to war? Are these leaders so devoid of commonsense and intelligence, so lacking in an appreciation of what constitutes right and justice,
that they ar>* ready and willing to inflict loss and suffering upon hundreds of
thousands of absolutely innocent men, women and children? In their refusal to see any side to the Questions confronting them but that in which is
bound up their own selfish interests they are surely guilty of a criminal intent far surpassing many acts punishable by severe penalties under the law.
The coal strikes in the Canadian Maritime Provinces and in Western Canada have been settled and the miners have returned to work, but only after
enormous and quite unnecessary losses have been inflicted upon both parties
to the disputes, which might just as well, and ought to have been, settled by
' conferences before the strikes took place Instead of after the strikes. Miners
and mine owners alike have lost money, the public, exchequer has-been
put to heavy and unwarranted expense���all of which the public must, In the
final analysis, pay. J'~   -- ...
And now, with what' is generally admitted to be the second heaviest grain

British Capital May
Open Branch Plants
Manufacturers Eager to Have Goods
Produced in Canada
F.' W. Field, British Trade Commissioner, who returned to Toronto after
two months in England studying trade
conditions there, states that there
is every.cause for optimism. Generally speaking, he said, the outlook was
brighter than it was a year ago, and
there was a better feeling among the
business men of Britain.
One of the most hopeful features,
said Mr. Field, was that hundreds of
representatives of British businesses
were at present travelling about the
world seeking markets and investigating conditions. Many of these men,
he said, would visit Canada, where
their capital was again beginning to
seek an outlet.
British manufacturers, he explained, were anxious to enter into co-operative relations with Canadian factories aud distributors. Not only were
they eager to place their money in
Canadian enterprises, but Ihey were
also seeking to make arrangements
for the manufacturing under joint
directorates, of their products in Canadian factories already established.
While it was true that British capital, in many instances, contemplated
investment in Canada through the es-
lablishnie.nt of branch plants,'tlie general tendency was to make use of the
manufacturing facilities already established in Canada for the production of
their goods.

what Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild
Strawberry did for me. Last: summer
my children had diarrhoea,/ terribly
bad, and they would vomit and pass a
great deal of blood. I tried every;
remedy we could think of, but finally
bought a bottle of Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild Strawberry, and about
one-half of it stopped the diarrhoea
altogether. I have told several others
about it, and I would not be without
it in the house, as I can truthfully say
it saved the lives of my two children."

Women In Polar Regions
Peary's Wife Accompanied Him Twics

Referring to the fact that the late

of her
It will be of interest and profit to
present this lesson as an ideal Sunday school class:
I. A Model Bible Class (vv. 1-6)V"
1. The Eager Assembly (v. 1).' The
people gathered themselves together
and "spake unto Ezra to bring the
book of the Law." It was not a matter of the teacher urging the class
to come together, but "the class with
yearning hearts requesting the teacher to come with God's Word.
2. The Representative Assembly
(v. 2). The class , was made up oi-
men, women and children. The men1
then did not leave the church-going to
the women. Neither were the children left at home with nurses or to
play on the streets. "God's .JV'ord
should be taught to all classes, men,
women and "children.
3. An Appreciative Assembly (v. 3).
Their ears were attentive from morning to midday. So eager were ihey
to know God's Wojd that they did not
get tired although the lesson lasted
for five or six hours. There was no
pulling of watches in that  class.
4. Due Reverence_ Shown God's
Word (vv. -I, 5). When Ezra opened
the Law all the people stood up. This
they did out of respect for tiie holy
book. ; The reason there is not proper reverence for the Bible is that people are-not' taught to believe it is
God's Word. Reverence in the house
of God will only be when lhe Bible is
regarded as God's very words.
:-57 They Joined Heartily in the Prayer (vvG). As Ezra led them, in prayer the people joined heartily in sa> ing

the ground.

.of stomach trouble in its worst form
but was completely restored to health
by taking Tanlac.     He says:
"I began suffering from avstubborn
case of stomach trouble two years ago
and got into bad shape. The first
bottle of Tanlac helped me and soon
the stomach trouble disappeared, I
gained eight pounds and am now in
fine health.*'
Undigested food fermerfts in the
stomach and soon the entire system is
filled^ with poisons. Tanlac was designed to restore the stomach to a
healthy 'condition and build up the

Many Millions Will Be Lost In New
Industry -
Within the last three months at
least 1,250 new corporations have
been organized to manufacture radio
apparatus. All of these.cannot have
the best technical skill back of them
and many of these new corporations
mitst fail. " Hundreds of thousands of
people throughout the country think
ihat the radio is a "gusher" and
that it will bring back in dividends
many times Mlie principal invested.
Many people would think twice before investing their money in gilt-
edged securities, but when the
magic word "radio" is whispered
they never hesitate. They read of
the tremendous strides of the radio
industry within the last few months
and make up their minds, that the
dollars they worked so hard for should
get out of the bank and get into radio.
There haye been millions lost in oil
and mines but there will be many
more "millions lost in radio. The
situation is well on the way tq. parallel an oil boom and in the wake of the
tremendous enthusiasm created, unscrupulous promoters and so-called
"experts" are relieving smadl investors of their_ savings. -In addition tp
the^best engineering and financial
questions there are always the manufacturing .and marketing problems
which must be solved before investments can pay back one * penny on
their principal. There is always the
questions of patents and recent investigations ��� have disclosed the astounding fact lhat 37 radio manufacturers at the present time are infringing upon each other's patents,' and 'at
least 1,000 other manufacturers are
infringing on the patents of several
older radio'* companies. Of course
the person who invests his money in
these concerns must suffer. . Let. the
investor.Jbefoye placing a dollar in
any business, study it thoroughly.
Let him find out whether the man
he backs is a reputable business
man- or an unscrupulous . operator,
and sometimes even that is, hard to
ascertain.���From the Toronto Telegram.

AThreshermenrMust Display Card
Comply With  Requirements in  Reference to Noxious Weed Act in
Threshermen shojild take notice,
states Mr. M. P. Tullis, Field Crops
Commissioner in _ the Saskatchewan
Department of Agriculture, that they
are still "required to display a > card
containing the provision;, of Section
23 The Noxious Weeds Act, in a prominent place upon the threshing machine, ail the timc that it is in operation.
Some confusion appears to have
arisen over the fact that The Threshers' Lien Act was amended at the recent session striking out of Section 2
the words "who has complied with the
provisions of The Noxious Weed Act."
This section of the Threshers' Lien
Act covers those who have a lien upon
grain threshed for the purpose of securing payment for threshing. This
amendment has no bearing upon the
application of Section 23 of The Noxious "Weeds Act, which is still in full
force and effect. Threshermen
therefore are advised to procure without delay the necessary card from the
Field Crops Branch, Department of
Agriculture, Regina', and affix it to
their machines.

For Juvenile Immigration
Urges Freer Entry of Boys and Girls
From Great Britain
Canada should annually accept 10,-
000 of the 15,000 boys and girls who
are willing to emigrate lrom the British Isles, according to Bogue Smart,
Canadian Government supervisor of
British juvenile immigration, who-has
just arrived" front Liverpool.'
Instead of accepting . this full
quota, Mr. Smart declared that-only
1,500 had been allowed entry.
'Tam firmly convinced, too, that
the younger the children are the better," lie concluded. "Canada could
easily take 30,000 children between
the ages of seven and 1-1. The farmers want them, and official records
show they will stay on the farms and
that 95 per cent, make good."

If the Blood is Not Kept Pure, Health
Will  Break Down
It is useless lo tell a hard working
woman to take life easily and not to
worry. To do so is to ask the almost
impossible. But, at the same time, it
is the duty of every woman- to save
her strength to meet any unusual demands, it is a duty she owes herself
and family, for her future health
may depend upon il.
To guard against a complete breakdown in health the blood must be kept
rich, red and pure. No other medicine docs this so well as Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. This medicine strengthens
the nerves, restores the appetite and
keeps every organ healthily toned up.
Women cannot always rest when they
should, but they can keep their
strength by the occasional use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. Among those
who have found benefit from this medicine is Mrs. Cora Conrad, Broad
Cove, N.S., who says; "My system
was very much run "down, and my
blood' poor and watery. I suffered
a great deal from headaches and dizziness; my appetite was poor, and I
tired easily. - I decided to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and'have every
reason to be glad that I did so. Soon
I felt better, and under the continued
use of the pills the headaches and
dizziness were gone, and my blood
seemed in a better condition than before. For this reason I recommend
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
oYou can get Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills through any dealer in medicine
or by mail at 50 cents a box or six
boxes .for J2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.; Brockville, Ont.

What Is Owed to Hotelmen

Hotels are a great public institution,

provides free rest rooms with comfortable chairs, and even sofas; chairs to
sit out In front or on the balconies,
wash rooms and ell conveniences;
free writing material���paper, envelopes, etc.���and a free bureau of information open at all hours. The civic
administration;-byreason "of "the~free
service maintained by the hotels, is
saved the necessity of opening rest
rooms and otherwise entertaining the
stranger within the gates. The hotel-
man gives this free service and many
take advantage of the hotelman by
using his hotel for a convenience and
then going to a Chinese restaurant for
meal3. AH this being true, what are
we going to do about it? Surely the
hotelman is entitled to something
more than a vote of thanks.���Belleville, Ontario,

of fact, in every case it necessitates changes in the cables and wires overhead or underground. It also necessitates changes in,central offices wires,"
and switchboard connections; in subscribers' accounts and directory listings;
and frequently requires new "drop" lines from open wires or cables. The
problems of station movement are among the large problems of telephone
service. Because ofthe double operation of disconnecting and reconnecting,
the work involved is .often twice as great as in the case of new subscribers.
