laid on the number of cows required, stating that 350 should be
available. The letter stated that
no government assistance is given
unless the district has no available
means of disposing of cream. It
also recommended the building up
of the Grand Forks Dairy by shipments from the Greenwood district,
stating that when more than sufficient cream was available for the
Grand Forks Dairy then the erection of a Creamery at Greenwood
should be considered.
The initial cost_of machinery for
a gathered creamery plant, consisting of boiler, engine, pasteuriser, combination churn, with a
capacity of 600 lbs of butter, and
other necessary appartus, would
cost approximately ���3,000. If a refrigerating machine is included, the
coat would bean addition of 51,500
to $3,000, some curtailment to this
amount, could be made by the use
of electric power. The chairman
after stating these facts threw the
mwttng open for discussion.
Charles King stated that he considered that the establishment of a
Creamery in Greenwood would be
* most desirable institution for the
city and district; but the main consideration was the amount of cream
available, butter could not be made
without  cream,   the   expense  of
operating a Creamery with insufficient cream,  would be as great as
operating one to its full capacity,
one would be operating at a loss
the other at a profit, and he considered that it was up to the farmers
to show that sufficient cream was
being produced before a Creamery
should be erected.    Should this be
necessary then a cold storage plant
could be ma in conjunction, and
any rancher wishing to kill some
of his stock could have it held in
cold storage till a favorable market
could be found.   The whole issue
was  with   the  farmer  and if he
would guarantee sufficient cream,
the financing of the project could
be arranged.
H. Hartley stated that before a
Creamery could be established successfully, milk stock should replace
the beef stock that are being raised
in the district, he stated that too
many Borub bulls were roaming the
country, and he suggested that
application be made to the government for bulls, of a suitable breed
for milk stock, be imported.
Robert Floyd stated that he was
shipping cream and if a Creamery
was established in Greenwood he
would increase his dairy stock.
B. Folvik stated that he was
making butter sad would continue
to do so, but if a Creamery were
established he would be inclined
to increase bis milk cows,
E. F. Keir considered that more
attention should be given by farmers to cream production, as the
of cream was guaranteed a
regular salary. He contended that
farmers should endeavor to ship
more cream to Graad Forks Dairy,
and when the supply had increased

that her mother predeceased her���
and now little Helen has gone to
join her mother in a happier clime,
free from all sorrow and suffering.
Bright,   happy    ftnd   cheerful,
Helen carried  sunshine wherever
Bhe went.    Her death comes as a
dark shadow to her father,  friends
and relatives   who   loved   her so
dearly.    Death ie a hard master.
He would take from us our brightest-and best, but  he cannot mar
memory.   It will serve as balm to
wounded heartB.   The sunshine of
love could not warm her life nor
the affection of father beguile her
from drooping.    Her breath went
out   like   the    exhalation   of   a
sweetly   fragrant   minion   of   the

only a holy and beautiful memory.
The small body was taken to Van-"

Despite ihe most diligent research,

it is not surprising that aerials several hundred feet high may be traversed by quite large currents duo to this

attack of coughing came ou, it seemed as if I would barely live through
it. I would gasp for breath. Catarrhozone made me well. It's soothing healing action was exactly suited

No. 6���Scientific Research (Continued)
Admitting that Canada has been backward in the prosecution of scientific
research, and granting that an effort should now be made to*" overtake the
Joss occasioned by past neglect, the question arises what is to bc done and
No Government should be expected to bear all thc cost of discovering
new scientific truths; that of course is paternalism. Most of the cost of
this work must be left to private enterprise since it is by private enterprise
that the new knowledge will be exploited, properties laid out, employees set
to work, and production carried on.
But if every branch of Canadian enterprise starts independently in the
pursuit of new scientific information, there is bound to be tremendous waste.
Many duplicate laboratories would be required. Much over-lapping of effort
wouid go on. In one laboratory time would be lost in proving or disproving
what had already been learned in a laboratory somewhere else���and perfectly willing to share the knowledge.
A vast ampunt of energy and money would be wasted on ground work������
instead of having the ground work done as far as possible in common and
the money available lor research concentrated on the really new effort. To
discover a quite slmple-jforinula might cost so much for laboratory and men
as to discourage the enterprise.
A lack of organization would be, therefore, a drag on the wheel.
It has been suggested in such, circumstances that the universities should
fje moboiized. But this view has had to be abandoned, not merely because universities are scattered, but because university routine cannot meet
the requirements of the kind of research the business world now* needs without damaging: the usefulness of the university to its students.
It has also been suggested that the scientific staffs attached'jto certain
Government departments could satisfy this 'need. But the work, which is
needed, cannot be done entirely by ,the Dominion Government. In miany
cases investigation can be carried out to the best advantage under, one or moro
of the' Provincial Governments, or under Federal" and Provincial authorities
in cooperation. Moreover it will often happen that .the work cannot be com-,
plefed as a practical and commercial success without calling on the financial and other help of the industries -which are concerned.     In all such cases      Stoney  Lake,  Sask. (Special). "I

asked "the most wonderful girl in the
world" to be his wife. He asks for
some points to help him in selecting
a home.
I believe one's first home should
be a rented one, even if it-is rented
for so short a period as one, two or
three months. In this rented home
one may learn from first hand experience just what is desirable.
Sunshine, ventilation, sanitation,
ease with which the home may be
kept clean are among the factors
to be considered. Froximity to cars,
post oillce, church, school, should bo
taken into consideration.
In fact ,the carfare of a worker
from his home to his place of business
and the time consumed in transit
should be considered, possibly as part
of the rent. An hour's journey from
home to business should be the limit.
Where one must travel longer than
this, there is too great a drain upon,
what should be, reserve vitality or the
transportation cost is unduly high.
And, after you have studied out just
what you like and what you do not
like in your rented home, you will be
in a better position^to know just what
you want when you buy a home.
And everything considered, ' it
should be the aim of every married
couple to eventually own their own,
home. People who own their own
homes feel a certain responsibility for
the condition of their home, the con-,
dition of their streets, the kind of citizen elected to public office, the
schools of the neighborhood, the moral
conditions of the community, the social side of the-community as well as
what kind of business may be permitted to come into the neighborhood.
And when people begin to feel'this'
kind of a responsibility, they automatically begin to be better citizens.
And better citizens and their children
make for a better America, and after
all, that is what every real home-maker in our country--, is striving for-r-a
better America. ��� i   -\      - "

"I will have a good word for Tanlac
as long as'I-live," said Henry Stone,
379 Hargraye St., Winnipeg, in relating, his experience with the medicine.
"Stomach trouble had me in awful
bad shape the past two years and I
was so weak-and run down I was just
about 'all in**5 Every, mouthful I ate
seemed to sour and the bloating, palpitation and shortness of breath that
followed was almost unbearable. I
had splitting headaches and a'ttapks of
dizziness.   '.I  spent quite a sum of
money trying to find relief, but was'
getting worse all the time, and it was
only through sheer grit that I 'managed to stick to my worst.
"But my troubles are a thing of the
past now and I am feeling fine in
every way, for Tanlac fc.'-.s put me in
the best of health. The medicine "
helped me from pie very start and six
bottles did" the work completely I
haven't an ailment of any kind, and I
think Tanlac is the greatest medicine
on earth."    " ;    :

English Writer's Opinion
Of Prohibition Law
H.   G.   Wells   Convinced   System   In
America is a Success
v Figures   of   approximate   accuracy
are beginning to be available throughout   the   United   States showing the
effect of the. prohibiten law.       ���'
Under the license system there was
a commerce in hard liquor and beer
sufficient to allow a.quantity, of two
quarts per month - to' an army of
twenty million drinkers.
Under the prohibition law, giving"
effect to the widest estimates of illicit
liquor selling, it is reasonably certain
that there is not more than enough to
give one quart-per month to two million drinkers.
Mr. H. G. Wells, the English writer, coming to Washington as a correspondent at the Peace Conference,
bringing wiVh him the British idea
that prohibition was a joke, gave out
a statement on the day of his sailing
for home, in which he declared himself convinced that prohibition in the
United States is a fixture, and that the
days of the bootlegger are numbered.
This agree with tho report made
by the. two Labor members of the
Pritish Parliament, C. H. Stick and
J. E. Davidson, sent to the States for
an investigation of prohibition. They
reported .the prohibition\system a success along economic lines; marked by
an entire absence of spending the pay
cheque for dj-ink on payday before going home; and that the illicit traffic
in drink depended for its buyers upon
those who had learned to drink before
the prohibition law was passed. This
class of buyers is dying out; and no
new class is being taught to drink in
its place.���Vancouver Sun.

11. Naaman's Fatal Defect (v.71).
He was a great man, but a leper.
He was held in high esteem by the
king, because through him the Syrians had been delivered from their enemies. He was not only a -capable
general, but was a very brave man���'���
valorous. Every unregenerate man,
regardless of his gifts and --possessions,'has this one fa'tal defect. He
may be a mighty warrior, a great orator, a gifted writer, a man of profound
learning, an honorable statesman, but
if he is an unbeliever in Christ, he is
a lost sinner���a leper. Leprosy is a
type of sin. Note its characteristics:
Loathsome hereditary infectious,
separating, destructive, deceitful, incurable by man.

Neither the king's power nor Naaman's money could avail anything in
this case. The prophet of God can
bring greater blessing than kings and
rich men.
3. Naaman at the door of Elisha
(vv. 8, 9). Elisha, upon learning of
the king's embarrassment, sent to him,
saying, "Let him come now to me."
Naaman appeared before Elisha's door
in great splendor. He did not come
as a suppliant but as one who could
pay a goodly su-ra for healing.
IV. Naaman Healed (vv. 10-15).
1. Elisha's message (v. 10), Go
wash in Jordan seven/imes.
2. Naaman's anger (vv. 11, 12). He
thought that Elisha should have
shown-deference to him. People today think that their rank and wealth
entitle them to different treatment by
God. -They turn away from the humble way of the Cross, God's method of
salvation. Rich and poor, high and
low are alike ^in God's sight Reasonings of the flesh must be supplanted by the obedience of faith.
3. Naaman's obedience (vv. 13, 14).
Through the earnest entreaty of his
servants his pride and prejudice were
overcome, and he did what the propn-
het commanded. The result of his
obedience was that his flesh "came
again as the flesh of a little child."
4. Naaman acknowledges Jehovah
(v. 15). After his cleansing he came
again to the prophet and said, "Now
I know that there is no God In all the
earth,' but in Israel." The vital point
of teaching in this lesson is how jiear-

Anaconda Shavings
(By Spoke-Shave)
The Anaconda Social Club met
Friday  evening last and  final arrangements   were   made   for   the
Hard Times  Dance.    Committees
were appointed  to carry  out the
various  duties essential,  to make
the event a  real  success, and to
provide a maximum of pleasure, at
a minimum of cost    Messrs. Bombini and Maletta, with Miss Nellie
Keir are responsible for the music,
and also all  arrangements appertaining to same. Mrs. Docksteader,
Mrs.   Bombini,   and Mrs. Bolts of
Boundary  Palls,  have tho labor-
ions task of preparing the supper,
while the purchasing of prizes has
been left to tlie direction  of  Mrs.
Docksteader,  Miss Ethel  Beattie,
and    Martin     Anderson.     Door-
tenders   for the  occasion will   be
Messrs. Johnson Beattie and  Dick
Pascoe.      Master   of   Ceremonies,
Frank  Maletta.     Dancing from 8
a.m.   to 2  a m.    Ladies!    Please
do not forget to bring extra dishes
to cope with outside visitors.
An up-to-date assay of samples
from the lead of Messrs. Bombini
& Co., of Anaconda, is shortly expected. It would be more pract-
ible for the authorities to divert
more of their attention and activities to the- erecting of a small concentrator, rather than petitioning
the provincial authorities for financial support for the initiating of a
creamery. Such an enterprise is
an impossibility without first having well bred dairy stock introduced into the district; a task by
no means easy, Neither can suitable feed for 250 head pf dairy
cows be grown, while a creamery
enterprise is under discussion.
Such things can only materialize
only after some years of co-operation, and understanding among
the; local ranchers themselveB.
Why not a . cold storage or beef
canning concern? Is not this a
beef raising community? .
The challenge has not fallen on
deaf ears. 7 Anaconda will meet
Greenwood at the rink on Thursday the 16th inst.. Game-commences at 8 o'clock.'
