Madden then bid 81100 and
J. Kerr 82000. No further offers
were received and th�� auctioneer on
the direction -of Mr. Pincott adjourned "proceedings for 60 days

Banking Problems In Canada
Urges" Appointment of Permanent
Returning Officers in Canada
Thc appointment of permanent re-j
turning .officers to simplify the work
of organization at election time is recommended by thc chief electoral ofll-
cer for Canada in his report to parliament. An amendment to the Elections Act Is suggested empowering the
naming by the government, either ot
an individual or a public officer, such
as the sheriff by virtue of his position,
(o act nt all times as reluming officer
in his county. Tho report remarks
that the lime required for preparation
for an election in Canada Is very much
longer than the period consumed In
Great Britain, -where the system ot
permanent returning ojlieers is in
! vogue.
.The chief electoral officer also re-
coinniends that urban registration for
electoral purposes should not be required, excopt-ln certain ocmuiuuities.
where tho population of an electoral
district is less than 5,000. At present
urban  registration  is  reauired  of all

them could be registered as rural

requiring urban registration from 185

In the course of the address dcliveivd by him In Winnipeg some weeks
ugii, and in which he discussed outstanding problems of the West, including
farm labor, grain markets and marketing, transportation, export cattle trade,
.immigration, Sir Clifford Sil'ton paid his respects to bankers and the Canadian
banking system, and suggested-what, in his opinion was necessary to restore
public confidence in tlie banks and enable those institutions to function
more efficiently in times of stress and emergency.*
There can be no question that what: has been termed the "wrecking of
the Merchants Bank" and the failure of the Home Bank, coupled with recent
amalgamations of other banks, has shaken confidence in the Canadian bank-
iuig system which for many years has been held up as one of the model systems of tlie world. Therefore, constructive criticism and suggestions are- to
be welcomed.
One of the criticisms most frequently heard in the West in years past
was that while the Canadian banking system might be air right from" the
standpoint  of large  financial  institutions  such  as  Bond  houses, insurance , .
companies, mortgage, loan and trust companies, and also from the standpoint i catarrh.' ^ r��m run nB_.��
of manufacturing industries and large commercial aud transportation enter-j Catarrh never stay3 in the-sama
prises, it fell far short of meeting the needs of agriculture and the. primary f place���-it travels down into the lungs���
producers of the Dominion.     It was this popular feeling which ultimately^.rthn��iltlS^5)_JlS"Ti'tn����:

Prefacing his remarks with the statement that he was not hostile to the' H-(?asily done  b>" Inhaling CATARR

Strange Effigies Are to Be Found In
Westminster Abbey
The British Museum in London has
been'*the growth of nearly two centuries, the first purchase for the collection having been made, in 1753, although the present magnificent bulld:
ing In Bloomsbury was not completed until 1S53, the gap of a century.
The Natural History Museum . at
South Kensington with its splendid
array of specimens was not commenced until 1S5C. Those museums
and tlio adjacent museums and colleges of science, lho Imperial Institute, tho Royal.Albert Hall, and the
Albert Memorial are all "clustered together and each Is well worthy of a
visit.
The Low I her Arcade ln the Strand,
that Toy Bazaar beloved by children
of" past 'generations, has disappeared
with' most of the old institutions. The
Royal Polytechnic in Regent Street
opened in IISSO and closed in 1881, Is
slill remembered. Who. can ever forget the thrill that-went through the
youthful beholder whon the diving-
bell with iis human freight sank beneath the. water, and the suspe'nso
i with which one waited for it to emerge? Many were the exhibitions!
clevoted tci1 Napoleon and' Wellington
that flourished in Loudon in the early
part, of the last century, hut theso
have long passed away leaving not a
rack behind.- Among the many entertainments that have come ancl gono
one can. only mention Wilde's Map ol
the World,, the Colosseum in Regent's
Park, the Christy (afterwards Moore
& Burgess)- Minstrels, the Mohawks,
the Dore Gallery, Hengler's Circus, tho
Royal Aquarium, and the performances at the Egyptian Hall in Piccadilly. Happily,' the "Old Vic," the

RHEUMATIC PEOPLE

By Enriching Their Blood With Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills
Rheumatism" attacks peoplo when
the blood is clogged with impurities,
thus setting up an Inflammation of the
muscles and joints. Cold * or ��� wet
weather may start the. tortures of
rheumatism, but it is not the cause, as
was once supposed. ' The cause is
thin or impure blood. Rubbing with
liniments or'applying hot applications
may_giye relief, .liut"'.t.liat is all; the
pains' are soon'back again. You must
treat the. trouble'through the blood to
get rid of it. Tlufvalue of.Dr. Williams' Pink Pills iti cases of this kind

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON

���_i*
THE REIGN OF. DAVID
Golden Text.���I delight to do thy
will, O my God.     P-salm 40.8.
Lesson.���I. Samuel 16 to 2 Samuel
24.   ��� .__.-
Devotional Reading.���Psalm 24.3-10.
- The Text Explained and Illumined
I. David's Plan to Build a Temple
Not Approved by. God, 1.1-7. In "a
time of peace from all his enemies
round about David told the prophet
Nathan of his great desire to erect a
suitablo building for tho sacred nrlc,
which was unworthily housed in the
tabernacle while he himself dwelt in
a pnlaco of cedar. This plan 'seemed good" to Nathan, but that night ho
was mado aware that it did not meet
God's approval; David was not-the
man" to build the temple nor was the
time rlpo for such a project. See I;
Kings 8.17. "A tent of God's appointing was better than a tcniplo of
his (David's) own inventing" (Matthew-Henry). "Some day wo shall
understand that God has a reason in
every No which ho speaks through the
slo*\y movement of life. He would reveal it to us if we could hear it; but
it.is better not to pry into "the mystery of his providence. But the time
will come, probably in this life���certainly in the next���when the word of
the Lord will come to us; and from
the emlnencooC the years wo shall,
descry... why he led us as he did"
(Meyer).
; II. David's Son . Shall Build wthe
Temple and David's House Sha'If'bo
Established' for Ever, 7.S-17. Nathan
was commissioned, to tell David that
Ills past experiences of God'3 care
were an earnest of the future, tliat
he should have a great name, that his
son should build the 'temple, and his
house and his kingdom -'"should be
made sure for ever. . ."If we consider
how.David's dynasty really came,to an
end as a' reigning family some flvo
hundred years after, we see that the
language-addressed to him was not
exhausted by the fortunes of his family.- -In the divine mind the prophecy reached forward to the time of
"Christ; and ouly in Christ was it fully
verified. �� God's words implied that it
was in David's line thai the promise
to" Abraham -was to bo fulfilled���'In
thee and in thy seed sliall all nations
of ilie earth be blessed'" (Blaikie).
Assists Farmers to
Purchase Livestock
New Policy Being Carried Out By
Livestock Branch
The���Minister of Agriculture for
Canada, Honorable W. R. Motherwell,
by the carrying out of policies administered by-the Livestock Branch of
his'department, has, during the past
fiscal year, either for breeding or
feeding, been, able to conserve a large
number of livestock consigned to
stockyards and abattoirs. Unfinlsh-*
ed steers to tho numbor of 807tl7, 89,-
024.heifers,. 673 sows and - 48,000
sheep were, under tho arrangement
referred to, returned to tho furms for
breeding purposes in tho caso of
females and for finishing into ��� good
beef in the case of feeder cattle. ��� Two
policies are Involved,in this service,
one, the remission of freight charges,
brought about by an arrangement between tho Livestock Branch and thb
railway, companies, and the ..other,
the payment -of the reasonable travelling expenses of farmers making the
purchases. The minister's report,
which supplies this information,
makes it clear that "the assistance
thus given was available for' stock
purchased for breeding of further
feeding by the purchaser.and not for
speculative purposes. .

Taber Irrigation District
Success Attained Is Evidenced by Last
"��� - ' . Financial Statement
The success attained "by irrigation-

statement of the Taber Irrigation District. - The" report reveals a total
surplus collectible or an hand of $30,-
000, of which $7,000 is on deposit in
the bank. .Operations have been so
satisfactory that negotiations havo
been entered into with the Canadian
Pacific Railway to" sot up a fund ot
$3,000 to $5,000 to redeem bonds of
the district held by thc railway;- In
this way it is hoped lhat the district
will be cleared of debt in a few years.
Internally and Externally it is Good.

After a lingering illness of
many months, R. G. Sidley,
pioneer of ..the Okanagau valley
and first white settler of the
Molson country, died at his farm
home four miles northwest of
Molson, Monday, March 3rd.
The funeral services were held at
the farm home Wednesday and
burial was made in the Bridesville cemetery. lie" is survived
by his widow.
Richard G. Sidley was boru in
Ireland and was about 70 years
of age. When a young man he
crossed the ocean to Ontario and
then in 1S85, came to the Okanogan valley aud was for a short
time employed here by Okanogan
Smith, before locating on his
land across the boundary near
Molson  nearly   forty  years ago.
At that time his nearest neighbor to the east was a trapper
who lived near the present' town
of Midway and his nearest trading points were Vernon and
Spokane.
Soon afterwards a large number of settlers came upon the
discovery of gold at Camp McKinney and Mr. Sidley was of
much help to the settlers of the
new country.
