The ordinary _way to measure distance is by miles. Yots think any
place you have In mind is so many miles away. It seems a long way off.
Look at it another \vay. Measure the distance by minutes. Say to yourself,
'���Such or such a place is so many minutes away," meaning, of course, that
if the telephone is used distance does not need to.be considered. ,
If yott want to talk to a friend or discuss a business matter, no place Is
very far away. Not only that, but the means of communication is always
right at hand. Every telephone is a long distance telephone. Besides, if
you talk in the evening, you can take advantage of the special rates.

Prospects Are Brighter
A Ui'cidi'.l change has been 'effected In tlio feelings of Western people
/luring ill'1 past few weeks, wiili tin; result, that a new spirii. of courage and
hopefulness lias replaced discouragement and despondency in many homes
-and even districts. This change is noticeable jn tlie conversation ol' people,
in I hi' renewed Interest ihey are inking, not only In iheir own affairs, but in"
all mailers of public concern, nnd is being reflected in a more confident nolo
junong business men.
Tin; cause for this "boiler lorn; in not far to seek, It Is largely lo be
found in one development���the rising price of wheat, although there are
other conlrihiiiiiig factors. On lhe date this article is written, No. Oue
Northern cash wheal is quoted at _i fraction of a cent under $1.20 a bushel
on ihe Winnipeg market, as compared with less than a dollar only a few weeks
*igo. The demand for wheat ls strong in Liverpool, Chicago and Winnipeg,
and iiif con fid cm prediction of well informed grain men Is that ihe price trend
-will continue upward, anil I lia I. the era of low prices lias gone for this year at
The change has been brought about by a realization that tho world production of wheat hist, year was very considerably over-estimated, coupled
villi a reduced acreage seeded lo wheat this year, to some slight extent in
Canada, to Quite a considerable extent iu the United States. The Argentine
crop last year fell millions-of bushels below expectations; the winter wheat
crop of the United States shows a decrease, of approximately one-seventh in
acreage, nieaning fifty million or more less bushels, while the spring wheat
crop, exclusive of Uiirnms, promises to be short of actual iioiia. requirements.
Coupled with this world situation, and-with Canada now in the very front
rank as one ol' the chief wheal exporting nations of the world, is the fact that,
spring seeding throughout lhe West was carried on tinder almost ideal conditions, while the all-imporiani .Tune rains, wiih an absence of unseasonable
hot weather, has resulted in the wheal rooting well and developing a strong
The uncertainly which has prevailed for some lime regarding the pool
method of marketing has been detiniiely��ended by lhe success achieved in
securing Ihe required acreage under contract in Saskatchewan for pool purposes, thus guaranteeing thai the pool method of marketing vill be in effect
this year throughout, the three Prairie Provinces:-" -While actual experience
Alone will demonstrate -the feasibility of Ihe pool plan, the grain growers will
ut least have the assurance lhat their own interests will be well looked after,
and this makes for increased confidence.
Another factor in iho situation is that with Ihe restoration of the Crow's

Amount Spe.nt Last Year In-Sweden
Was $5,000,000
About $5,000,000 was spent in Sweden last year by 50,000 tourists, according to estimates compiled from
data collected by the Swedish Traflic
Association It has been possible to
estimate from the business done by
holels, sleamship lines, railroads, the
larger places of amusement, etc., that
the number of foreign visitors in Sweden lias risen from about 35,000 in
1920 to about 50,000 ln 1923.
The money brought into a country
by tourist, trade is usually spoken- 01
vaguely as part of the "invisible trade
balance," bin experts In Sweden are
now becoming interested in estimating these expenditures per capita.
Lieut. T. SegorslraJe, director of ihe
Swedish Traflic Association, has computed the average expenditure within
Sweden by tourists as about $100 I'or
each person.

Curious Exhibit At Wembley
Insignia  of  Sierra   Leone's   Notorious
Society of The Human Leopards
One of the curious things to be seen-^f-
at   the  British  Empire Exhibition  at
Wembley is the "Borfima," or insignia
of Sierra Leone's notorious secret .society of the Human Leopards.
This dread organization, with others
of its kind, ha* now been disbanded
by the -government, but while these
savage gangs existed they terrorized
the natives by a well organized svs-
tem of blackmail and cannibalism.
Founded solely for cannibalistic
purposes.-was the ."Human Alligator
Society." This was composed of a
sect of expert swimmers and divers,
who would swim long distances under
the water, spring out and grab some
unwary on?, who would be dragged
under and drowned. To divert suspicion in case they were seen, Ihey
wore lhe head and skin of a crocodile,
or hid between two canoes.
Kach member of this band was
obliged, when so ordered, to furnish
a fresh victim or he would be captured and devoured.
The acting member of the "Human
Leopards," on the other hand, vjas
disguised in the mask and pelt of a
leopard. Should anyone refuse tho
demands of liiis tribunal, or otherwise
offend it, the victim would be attacked
from behind, and sharp iron claws
would be dug-into his throat.

P. McLean, New General  Manager
of Saskatchewan Co-operative  -
The choosing ol a new general manager for the Saskatchewan Co-operative Creameries, Lid., is a matter of
importance Jo everyone interested in
c6-operative movements - and -.market-
iiigs'iri; Western. Canada,, a rid"'of very
special'.interest...to all engaged ln the
production of cream or the manufacture of creamery butter.
The Saskatchewan Co-operative
Creameries, Ltd., is one of the largest
co-operative movements so far undertaken in Western Canada, and its ultimate success ot failure will have a
very marked re-action in the development of co-operative market Ing, which
is fell by all who study farm prob-.
lems "wiih impartial eyes, to be the
best, hope of the farmers, not-only of
Western Canada, but of the world.
The man who has finally been selected to undertake the somewhat arduous task of managing this organization, .which admittedly -has., not" been
successful in its marketing undertakings in the past, is A. P. McLean, who
has for the past ten years been a resident of Winnipeg,'as manager for the
Canadian Packing Co., Ltd.. and;who
has been in the employ of that coni-
pauy for 29 years.
Mr. McLean has many qualifications
for his new posilion. but his present
employeis aud his confreres iu the
trade all credit him with very special
abilities along marketing lines,, which
will assuredly be a great asset in his
new position.
While keeping closely in touch with
marketing conditions, and posi-ibly because oT that clo-se touch, he has interested iMinscir aclivelv in those
schemes which havc tended to give to
the three prairie pro\inces their present enviable position in lhe production
of high-class creamery butter, namely
tlie grading of cream, the government
grading ol butt t and lhe establishment of a'unifoim grade ol buller for
the tlr_*H>e western provinces.
With regard to-the grading of cream,
Mr. McLean\. stand has-been that not
only if, il essential In the production
ot high-otass expoit bultei. but it is
the ouly means by which, the producer, who is carelul and particular about
his cream, giving lime and thought to
producing the best, can leceive the
juat rewiird ol" hij el'foits.
Mr. McLean is also a strong believer in the establishment of a top grade

To the Jerusalem News: What a
revelation it was to us recently when
Ezra, our revered scribe;, read to us
the words ot" the Law! . What a
searching of hearts and shedding of
tears there were that .day! We had
not known befpro the extent of our
transgressions against Jehovah's laws.'
' Since that, day I have been tracing
our national history from the time ol
the division of the Hebrew Kingdom
upon the death of Solomon until now.
and it may not be amiss for your readers lo note, with mc wherein we as a
people have erred ln the past, and io
recall how constantly Jehovah has
been warning and guiding us.
The answer wliich Rehoboam gave
to the deputation- from the Northern
Tribes at Shechem, not long after ho
had ascended the throne of his father
Solomon, was fraught with-; direful
consequences. The men of the North
came to him with 'their,, grievances;
they had suffered much under Ivihg
Solomon's rule, and they sought to obtain from his successor the promise
that their burdens should be lightened. Instead of granting their just
request Rehoboam sneeringly told
them that rather should?-their burdens be increased. Arrogance is sure
to overreach itself, and Rehoboam's
arrogance that day cost him the greater part of his kingdom. The Northern Tribes seceded and formed a
separate kingdom under their labor
leader Jeroboam, while to Rehoboam
was left only the tribe of. Judah.

Report for'Month of June, 1924
In the whole sweep of industrial
pursuits we no of no other industry
that demands Buch a diversity of
practical knowledge and wisdom as
that of farming. The farmer must
know a great deal about stock,
grain, weeds, grass, roots, soil,
milk, butter, poultry, etc. He
must have the practical knowledge
of a veterinary, the trade of a butter maker, the knowledge of an
orchardiat, the facility of a market-

a commanding position among the
wheat producing countries of the
world, and prizes and championships have come to her sons from
success in grain growing and other
agricultural achievements. Over
one million workers are engaged in
agriculture alone, and in .1922 her
revenue from this BOurce was
