Under the auspices of the  Rock
Oreek United Farmers, in the Cooperative Hall, was a  very interesting course bf lectures conducted
during  last week,   the   lecturers,
five   in   number   w;ere   from   the
University of B. C,  all of whom
gave "much useful information and
advice in a.very, interesting manner, and all who beard them hope
that , ifc  may  be possible   that at
some later date they will be able to
give another series of lectures  at
Rock-Creek.   ...
V The attendance was. very good,
especially so, considering; that  the
majorityV of the, ranchers at-this
time of year," when  busy, ..with  all
their stock on-full, winter rations,
can. duly get off. with: great difficulty,   ^working  later hours at
night; also "consideringTthe^present
prices ruling . locally  for .coal - oil
and cattle, it is doubtful. if it pays
fco-buy coal oil. in order . to see to
feedthe cattle, this wiH7.be ah important/ question >to  discuss; it is
hoped at the next series of lectures.
.   On Saturday ten of;the. eehplars
attending   the - lectures   competed
forV'-a-fifty" dollar ��� scholarship:- donated . by a United .Farmer,  and
they are also eligible to com'^te for

giving encouraging advice on how ..
to  raise, produce' and  stocky took 7
an interest in the  local  marketing:;.
problems and  pointed {out a; few.
sound  ways by.-which-.the farmers
could helpi theioaseives if they wish- 7

The second session of Parliament under the administration of lion. \V. !..
Mackenzie King is on the eve ol opening.     it has been forecasted as a lengthy
session with many important subjects to receive consideration, including Canada's relations to the  l.nipire tied  foreign affairs, revision of the Bank Act, j
guiin marketing, trade treaties, a Redistribution Bill, railway policy, ininii_.ru- j
tion, development of natural resources, export trade, etc. 	
Adnii.tedly these are all big and vital questions, but to the close student j Tne R'9ht_ Thing to Do. is to Take a
of present-day conditions and problems in Canada and the world the outstanding question among those enumerated is undoubtedly that of immigration.
'J"he. present Immigration Act is a product of the war aud after-war conditions.
It is obsolete. Canada's true interests demand that it be scrapped, wiped off
lhe Statute books entirely, and replaced by a now, well considered Act based
on present-day needs and requirements.
The present Immigration Act. ami tiie Orders-in-Council thereunder, are repressive aud restrictive in the extreme. They have, operated and are today
operating to practically prohibit and kill all immigration to this Dominion,

Jesus is now on His way to Jerusalem where He will be offered up. for
the sins of tlie people. It was fitting
that He should pass through the country of the Samaritans, for He was the
Savior of till men. On this occasion
He came in touch with a colony of
ten lepers, and His healing of them exhibits fhe condition of human nature
and the workings of His divine grace.
I. Their Awful A miction (v. 712).
They were lepers. Leprosy is a
contagious disease which rots off
the members of the body and eventuates in death. It may bc unnoticed
in the blood of the person for years.
It is of- such a foul nature that the
one thus afllicted is cast out from society. The segregation was in accordance with Mosaic law (Lev. 3JJ:
���Iti). It was a kind of Naaman quarantine measure. Leprosy lias always
befen regarded ;i��s a type of sin, even
;d iimes visited upon people for sonic
sin. Examples, the leprosy of Gehazi
(II. Kings :i5:ii). Sin lias come into
the. world and Hows from generation
to generation through the racial,
stream, so that all are sinners (Rom.
5:.12). Though sin may be hidden, it
eventually breaks out and destroys
fhe body. Evidences of (his are seen
on every hand. Tliere is no need for
Rible. proof of its reality.
It. Their Cry Xor/Mercy (v. 13).
They were in great need. No human help was available. They had
somehow heard how Jesus had healed
some lepers. Where there is real
healing it is bound to be noised about.
This aroused faith in them. "Faith
couieth by hearing, and hearing' by the
Word of God" (Rom. 710:17). As He
came their way they called for mercy.
II is the privilege of all sinners to call
upon Jesus Christ for mercy. Salvation from the most awful sins will
surely come to all wlio cry unto Him
in sincerity.
Iff Ridden to Go to the Priests (v.
- !���!)���   - ' ''       .1'
Before tlio lepers wero healed ,they
were to show themselves to_ the
priests, according to the Mosaic law
(Lev. 11:1-32). As they went in faith
they were healed. While God goes
before in the work of salvation, yet
He demands of the sinner faith. Faith
is the cause of His action.. Activity
on' the sinner's part is necessary -eo
that. God's grace can flow into him.
Faith expresses itself in action. Ry
this mean's tho" divine power and hu;
.man. need are united. The only faith
needed is for tiie sinner to realize/the
.healing power .o'f /Christ, -and as this
is "ac.ted upon', there is .the .consequent
increase which results iii complete sal-
vat Ion-.- Cleaiifc-iiig is'realized'through

Children Cry for Fletcher's
Fletcher's Castoria is strictly a remedy for Infants and Children.
Foods are specially prepared for babies. A baby's medicine^
is even more essential for Baby. Remedies primarily prepared
for grown-ups are not interchangeable. It was the need of'
a remedy for the common ailments of Infants "and Children
that brought Castoria before the public after years of research,
and nofclaim has been made for it that its use for over 30
years has not proven^
Castoria is a harmless substitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric?
Drops and Soothing Syrups. It is pleasant. It contains
neither Opium, Morphine nor other: narcotic substance. Its
age is its guarantee. For more than thirty years it has
been in constant use for the relief of Constipation, Flatulency,
Wind Colic and Diarrhoea; allaying' Feverishness arising
therefrom, and by regulating the Stomach and Bowels, aids
the assimilation of Food; giving healthy and natural sleep.

An Absolute Teetotaler
Ostrich Expert Says Birds Do Not
Drink At All
The ostrich is one of the most peculiar birds in the world. He has an
interior economy which is full of surprises. His digestion is a proverb,
but strictly speaking he does nor
digest the key's,, bits of metal, and
other oddments he swallows. ���*" 7
These he- stores into a powerful
grinding mill of muscle, and uses them
to reduccv hard corn /into coarse powder. What is. curious about the ostrich is the fact that he out-Pussyfoots
Pussyfoot Johnston by never drinking
at all.    '
This was not realized at the London
Zoo'until an ostrich expert in-the ser-
vice of tiie South African Government
paid a.visit lo Regent's Park and saw
pans of water in the ostrich house.
He explained that he never pampered his birds by giving them anything
to drink..and the water supply of the
London birds was promptly tut off.
Tliat was three years ago, and the
birds havo noi started to grumble yet.

but did not find much relief. I would
have such bad pains in my heart, at

to move or breathe, and at night I
could, not sleep. If the. pains in my
heart were gone, my nerves would be
so bad.I could not lie-J&'iU'arid, would
only get a little sleep by being tired

Judge Landis Says Hope for World is
In the Hands of the Boys
Hope' for the world is in the hands
of the boys of today, Judge Kenesaw
Mountain Landis, High Commissioner
of Baseball, declared in an address before the Association of Commerce in
"The lights wc fathers have fought
arc nolhiug to the light" our sons
must face," Landis said. "The world
is standing on its head; governments
arc groping in tlie dark; nations arc
distrustful, and there' is no north
star lo guide us. "It is for our sons
to find the north star, and I have confidence in their ambitions and faith in
the future."
Landis' assorted that the greatest
factor in the upbringing of boys was
companionship between fathers and
sons. "There is .nothing so pitiful in
the world than the father and his
son who arc not chums," the veteran
jurist said.

If thc ordinary processes of nature

not be necessary to extract tho temporary teeth; they would extract themselves at the proper time. Normally
the roots are absorbed as the' time
comes for the eruption of the permanent teeth and the crown, or business-
end of the tooth, is left hanging to the
gum. Some day a little extra pressure removes the baby tooth and in its

causes operate to interfere with' nature's perfect plan.
If the permanent tooth does not

either be incomplete or it will fail to
absorb at all. Sometimes long slivers of tlio temporary tooth roots are
left and when the crown comes off.or
an attempt is made to extract, theso
root pieces aro left to wedge in thc
process between the permanent teeth.
This condition always results in inflammation, sometimes causes serious
abscesses, and often interferes with
the effort of the permanent tooth lo

Making a Sun-Dial
For Newfoundland
Is Being  Made by Toronto Professor
For Uso of One of Dr. Grenfell's
Professor Louis B. Stewart, Professor of Surveying and Geodesy, University of Toronto, is working in his
spare moment on a scientifically accurate sun-dial for the use of Dr.
Grenfell's hospital in Newfoundland.
A sun-dial, in order to be of real service, must be constructed to suit the
latitude in which it is to be used and
must be placed on the true meridian.
In 190-1 Professor Stewart was one of
a party who went to Newfoundland to
observe a lunar eclipse, and foundi at
that time the exact longitude and latitude of that part of Newfoundland
near which Dr. Grenfell has since
located one of his hospitals. Hearing
from a university student, who was
Investigating water powei in Newfoundland this summer, that the
people in charge of the "hospital have ���
no means of being sure of the correct time, Professor Stewart undertook to make the sun-dial on which
he is now "working.

The   press  gives    a   prominent
place to the rumpus created  in tho
Episcopal  Church  circles  iu New-
York by the statements of   Dr. P.
S. Graut.    "My   Father is greater
than I" the learned man quotes in
proof of his denial  of the Divinity
of the Master.    He  evidently   has
uever read the words ofthe Christ
quoted  iu   the same  gospel:    "He
who  has  seen   me  has   Keen   tho
the Father" or "I am iu the Father
aud  the   Father   iu me."    Would
that our newspapers were as ready
to   quote   from   such    recognised
leaders  of   thought   and   faith   as
Rev.   John   A.   Hutton,   D.   D.!
The following is from   a  review of
Dr. Hutton's book "The Authority
and   Person   of  our Lord":      "In
tbe gospels Jeeus   represents   Elim-
Belf   as   possessing   diviue   power:
He  forgives  sins,   aud   raises tlie
dead to life.    He is  oue   with   tht-
Father and has the destiny of mini
in   His   Hand.    In   the   Epistks,
His name is so conjoined'with that
of tbe Father, that His  divinity is
unquestioned, and   to  one who ac
cepts this historic wituess and rests
his  soul   in   tho Divine   Christ, as
revealed  in   the   scriptures,   theie
will be no  conflict   between   faith
and reason, but a  calm   pt-rsuaso'u
that he has found the rock-bottom
foundation   of  the eternal    hope.'
So we conclude in the words of our
author:    'There is no victory   over
the world,   no  triumphant answer
to  its  monotonous   challenge,   no
personal and unfaltering ground of
hope,   for   living  greatly   and   for
praise,   except  by  a  humble   and
reverent  confidence,   nurtured   on
the New  Testament  facts, breathing the New Testament atmosphere
of spiritual   miracle  and   wonder,
that in   Jesus  Christ we have the
authentic voice  out of   the silence,
that in Christ   Jetus   there  dwells
for us the  fulness of the Godhead
iu bodily form."

TN a special article written for the"
* Annual Financial number of
the "Montreal Gazette," E. W.
Beatty, K.C., President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, makes a plea
for the keeping free of Canada's railroad management from legislative
and political restriction. The subject is
of unusual interest at this time, and
Mr. Beatty points out that Canada
has something to learn in this respect from the somewhat unhappy
experience of the United States. The
article is as follows:��� ���
Canada has sometimes been upbraided with being less quick to
adopt new ideas .than her neighbor,
thc United States. While this more
conservative attitude may have its
drawbacks, it sometimes has its advantages, as it enables us to study
thc progress of experiments conducted under similar conditions to
those pertaining to this country
without being ourselves involved in
the penalties of failure. A case in
point was the United States Government control of railroads during
the war. Those who anticipated a new
Jerusalem from the experiment have
either confessed their disillusionment
or have diverted their enthusiasm to
other visionary schemes.
The -extent to wliich the American railway is still crippled by
the recent experiment has not been
thoroughly recognized, and the almost equal danger of government
over-regulation has been overlooked.
This official interference still interferes, with the stability of the railroads, with the result that the capital required for necessary maintenance and equipment is lacking, and
the vigorous programme of extension and development which might
have been; expected after the war is
not yet announced. With a shortage of 1S0.000 freight cars and 2,000
locomotives, the American railroads
have failed satisfactorily to handle
the harvest or to distribute the much
needed coal. For this they are not
themselves to blame. As Secretary
Hoover has frankly admitted, the
American railroads are suffering
from long-continued financial starvation, and points out that the loss
to the United . States during each
period of severe car shortage is at
least a billion dollars, most of the
loss falling upon the farmers.
In the United States, the farmer
has been clamoring for reduction of
freight rates, but of what advantage
will those lower rates be to that
���-farmer if they still further deprive
the railroads of the credit required to
buy the equipment for transporting
the harvest to market? Lower rates
can only mean more unmarketed
��� corn. " - *

editorials in the Wall Street Journal  of  December 9th:���
"The theory that you can tax
railroads poor, compel them to pay
the highest wages and conduct transportation at a loss will not work in
America or anywhere else."    -
"The Interstate Commerce Act,
approved February 4, 1887, has been
continually amended, each amendment bringing with it more and more
restraint, and leaving to railroad
managers less and less initiative." *
"Coincident with" these . amendments came state legislation creating
the public utilities commissions, designed to do in a small way what
the Interstate Commerce Commission was'doing in a large way. Always there was growing the ever-
swelling stream of legislation of a restrictive character, some fanatical,
some political and utterly selfish, but
all tending to increase the cost of
operation and lessen the initiative of
the mananagement.
"The railroad problem is today
more political than economic. Government interference has dried up
the sources from which railroad
management built its colossal structure. Investment capital is always
shy of political control. With control of their expenditures in . their
own hands, subject only to economic
laws, the railroad business ought to
be permitted to readjust itself as
other business must do and is doing.
"You must not think you can continue the policy of private ownership and at the same time regulate
every railroad method and operation
and still expect them to continue to
show enterprise and .initiative. Too
much protection and too much regulation are disastrous."  -
The record,of the recent shopmen's
strike in the United States showed
that wage-fixing by government does
not avert strikes. Indeed, it is generally admitted that the strike was
due In no &maJl measure to the worlc.

ers' resentment at having their, wages

The moral o.f all this is, of course,
that Canada  would  be   wise "to  profit
by _ her   neighbor's    experience,   and
avoid   the   mistake   of   constant   ap-'.
peals for government interference in
order to adjust railway matters which
may   b'e   in   dispute.      For    government   interference,   however   well in-
tentioned it may be in the beginnings
inevitably results in paralysis and inertia.    A round-table conference between the parties interested is much
more  likely   to  remedy  the   trouble.
In the case of immigration we have
seen how war regulations introduced
for a specific purpose have hampered
the movement of   desirable    settlers
to  this  country owing  to the slowness of the official mind to adapt itself to hew circumstances.    Increase
of government regulation  means increase of the number of officials and
increased taxation, and heaven knows
wc   have   taxation   enough  as   it   is!;
What the business of   this    country >
needs is freedom of initiative and'pro.-1
spect of a reasonable return for en-!
terprise,  alwrays  with  due regard  to'
tht general welfare.
It cannot be too strongly empha-j
sized ��that  Canada's   most    pressing'
needs are capital and men.   Without:
the latter its potentialities cannot be'
realized and  the burden  of taxation:
lessened, and without the former, its i
industrial^    expansion      cannot     bej
achieved.    Our energies  'should    be',
directed to exploiting the advantages;
and   the   wealth  of  this   country   in'
those quarters where wealth is avail-1
able and whose holders  believe   that j
under   Canada's   laws   and   constitu-;
tional  system' thcir investments will
be given the encouragement and protection   which   they   deserve.       The
wealth, of this country   lies   in    the,
ground for the most part and   must;
be taken out of it by the joint labors
of men and money.
Excursions by the government in-:
to the field of private enterprise can-'
not bc supported except on grounds'
of national peril, or to save economic;
disaster, but scarcely less important,
is the necessity for broad policies of:
non-interference in business by regu-,
latory and restrictive legislation!
which has a tendency to tie the hands!
and cripple the initiative of those en-|
trusted with thc legitimate development of the commerce and industries!
of the nation." Providentially, wei
can see no indication of such an attitude in Canada, and that is as it
should be. It is thc spirit of(�� the
pioneer which initiated this country's
development, and it is that spirit
translated to our modem and complex commercial life which will,con-
1 tribute mant  to its futiim  nra��wnt��
