Lecture and Farewell
"Will ye no come"back  again"
was  the prevailing   sentiment   at
the Farewell on Tuesday evening
in the Presbyterian church in honor
of Rev. W.   H. Redman   who has
been occupying   the' pulpit" during ���
the past four  months and  in that
short time has  endeared  himself
not only to his congregation but to
the  whole  community.'. Over 100
were present to say  "au  rev'oir"
but not good-bye for it is Hoped
that Mr. Redman  will.be' induced,
to come and make his homo hat��,
not only  because he is a loving
and thoughtful pastor but because,
too, he .is # man among men.        ��� ���
Jas  Kerr filled the chair in a
capable manner   and  the   "Farewell"  commenced  with  a  hymn,
after whioh  J. Finlay rendered in
a masterly   and  finished' style aV
cornet solo and so much  was this
enjoyed that he was later on- called
to give two more solos.
Rev.   W.   H.   Redman  gave an
interesting   and   most   instructive
lecture   on   "Jerusalem's   Future
Glory"   and   held   the   audience
spell bound during his  whole discourse.    The Rev. gentleman is a
fluent and able speaker and divided
his lecture into   three   parts viz: "
History meaning Adam,   Prophesy
���Abraham and  Religion���Christ.
Mrs. S. P. Dixon and P. H. McCurrach   were   the   accompanists/
Refreshments  were served and a ���
collection taken which was donated'
to Mr. Redman to heip defray"his -
travelling expenses.
Mr. Re'dfaableft on "Wednesday"7
for his home in Bradner amid the.
well wishes and regrets of the
whole community and it is hoped
that it will not be long ere arrangements can' be made to get him
back to stay permanently.

indicate a continuance of the remarkable growth of thc educational system
of the province In 1906 there were
altogether six hundred and two school
districts in Alberta. By the end of
1920 there were 3,553, or nearly six
times as many a3 in 1906. During thc
last fifteen year's an average of two
hundred additional school districts
have been formed each year, and thc
number of children attending schools
has grown from 24,245 to 121,567. In
this period from 24,245 to 121,567. In

A quiver ran through the hand

gently across thc other, on thc dead

Dayton was standing, white-faced
and trembling, looking down on thc
victim of his sin. Dorkin touched
his arm.
"Mr. Dayton," he said, "I don't

the relative mortality of abstainers
and non-abstainers. "The statement
with reference to the relative mortality experienced by abstainers and non-
abstainers as insured lives," Mr. Finlayson said, "was made in connection
with a private bill promoted by a particular company which has a comparatively Small abstainers' section and
the question as to the experience of
this section having arisen, it was
stated, that at the present time thc
mortality in this section was higher
than in the general section. ,It
was, however, clearly pointed out that
owing to the small number of lives
involved, this fact had absolutely no
significance as indicating the relative
mortality of abstainers and non-abstainers generally.
"The experience of companies
operating abstainers' sections in a
large way, and also investigations
made from time to time, both in thc
United States and Great Britain
into thc mortality of thc two classes,
go to show that the abstainers' class
experiences a lower rate of mortality than thc general class.

Grain Growers
Vigorous Campaign Will Be Conducted to Enrol More Farmers in
A vigorous and comprehensive organization campaign will be carried
out by the central executive of the
Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association this summer, under the direction of J. B. Musselman, central secretary and managing director. The
membership .of the association in 1920
dropped materially below that of 1919,
and the purpose of the projected campaign is to restore the membership to
its former size and, if possible, to increase it beyond any point it has yet
A special feature of the campaign
will bc thc holding of meetings in
thc v&rioup districts into which the
association is divided. An effort will
bc made to have every local reached
by a director or sub-organiaer, and
also to cover the unorganized districts. Considerable time will bc
given by Mr. Musselman personally
to field work during the drive and he
will, if possible, spend a few days
with the director of each district
attending and addressing meetings.
An effort is being made to have every
other member -of thc executive and
central board give some definite time
to thc same work.

British Health Minister Says Cause is
Still Unsolved.
In tlie report issued by the British
Ministry of Health on the epidemic
of influenza of 1918-19, it is stated
that the cause of the disease is a problem "still unsolved," It is described
as the "first intensive study of the
great and devastating scourge that
swept Europe and Asia and, during
the space of a few months, claimed a
iber of victims than fell
whole of the European
war." It is stated that the immediate
outlook is not such as to inspire confidence. Other diseases ' have been
brought under control; influenza still

The Swing of tke Pendulum
The enormous demand for products and goods of all kinds during, thc

war, and  the consequent rapid rise in prices not only.for such products j flights  Over  Great Areas  of Wild
and goods but for all materials and labor entering into their production for
use; created problems in finance and economics which taxed the best brains
in all countries. Phenomenal increases in prices of all commodities in-
evitat^ lorccd increased wages paid to workers in order that' they might
be able to maintain themselves and their families. And increased wages
could-have no other effect than to give still another boost to the costs of
product;.-:.-, and, as a natural result, another advance in prices. Another
call for an increase in wages followed," and so the world travelled in a circle.
With the conclusion of the war came a sudden cessation in demand
for, those articles which were required in enormous quantities during the
struggle. Coupled with this cessation in demand, was the return of millions of men from the armies back to civilian life and the necessity of ab-
eorbing them once again into the industrial and productive, work of the
country.      Under the conditions it  did not take long to make good the

Mayor Grimshaw.
The Peace .kivcr Standard, in com:
Now the world of finance and business and labor faces the problems of  menting on the activities of. the com
decreased demand and falling prices. Difficult as were the problems
created by unprecedented, demand, shortage of materials and ��� labor, and
steadily, rising prices, they were simple compared to thc difficulties now confronting everybody because of decreased demand, and consequent' unemployment, resulting in a lessened buying power by thc public and an inevitable fall in prices of commodities. Yet this new and much more difficult
problem must bc faced and solved, and all classes must contribute their fair
share to thc solution. '
Thc chief present difficulty seems to lie in the fact that the working-
man remains insistent that the"high scale of wages reached during the war
period of inflation shall be maintained. Those high wages were thc outcome
of unusual conditions, and any intelligent and observant person must rcal-
pany's airplanes says: "It is the: intention of tlie navigators to make two
trips to'thc mouth of thc Hay River,
where the next base will be established, as soon as thc motors of thc ma-
cmiics have been thoroughly overturned. The two tnps to Hay River
will be for the purpose of tai-dng to
this base.a supply of gasoline. The
machines were Jilted with skis at Edmonton bciorc coming north, but
these were removed to make thc llight
'we- that with thc passing of those exceptional conditions, wages, like every-i to JrVace Kivcr, and the planes win be
tiling else, must return to a normal level.
Tn order to stimulate buying on the part of people generally, there must
be a decrease in prices: If there is not such a drop in prices, and, as a
consequence, increased buying, there must inevitably be a curtailment in
production. A dropping-off in industrial production means unemployment
for thc workers, not merely at prevailing high wages but at any wages at
all. Any increase in the number of the unemployed means a further lowering of thc buying power of thc people, and a still further increase in un-
'.���midoyrncnt.or a substantial reduction in thc hours of employment���factories running half-time instead .of full time. In other words, thc world is in
danger of again,travelling in-an. economic circ!e, even more vicious and
containing greater possibilities of disaster than thc one travelled during thc
war years.
The unfortunate fact is that, to an appalling extent, people today are I
being guided in their actions by untried theories instead of by thc actual
experience of thc past. Workers everywhere seem toibc. demand'ng the
settlement of present problms in conomics on a basis which totally disregards fundamental principles which underlie.all business and finance. During thc war tlie pendulum swung to thc extreme limit one way, and everybody had to swing with it; it must swing to thc other extreme before an
equilibrium is reached, and once again everybody is affected. Not by the
efforts on any one c!ass alone, but only through thc combined efforts and cooperation of all can a normal level bc successfully reached.
One of the fallacies, which, however, finds ready acceptance in some
quarters, is that any given "industry can fix its own prices, hours of labor,
scale of wages, etc., without having regard to other Hues of industry.      For
example,  that railway executives' and railway employees can get together
and decide upon hours of labor and scale of wages, and by setting these,
forth in an agreement.ratified and signed by both parties, settle the problem '
so far as they arc concerned.      But not so.     -If   as    the   result    of    thc:
��� schedules agreed upon an undue burden is placed on other lines of commcr-!
cial activity and thc public as a whole, then there will bc such a falling off
in business that thc railway companies will bc sufferers and thc necessity
be enforced upon them of laying, off countless numbers of their employees.,
It would-be merely a modern application of thc old fable of killing  the
goose that laid the golden egg.
And what would bc true in the case cited, would prove equally true it-
relation to any other industry. There, arc other aspects of-this very complex problem,"and it is important at this time'that people should not dwell
too much on theories, but face actualities, fundamental principles, and the
concrete facts of- thc situation.

There comes a time in the life of
every housewife when she must either
be absent from the family board or
when she returns home so late that
she must prepare most of thc meal
ahead. How much easier for every
one concerned if she has a few emergency menus on hand.
One of these consists of: Boiled
fish, green peas, baked macaroni
with cheese, cold slaw or cabbage
salad and apple sauce. -The macaroni may bc boiled the day before, rinsed with cold water and set
aside in the refrigerator. The apple
sauce may also bc prepared. The
cabbage may bc shredded and tied up
in a damp cloth. ^.
On the morning of thc day you expect to be "away, make up thc white
sauce and arrange it and the macaroni
in the greasgi baking dish. Sprinkle
the cheese over the top. And replace it in the ice box. Finish making the cabbage salad. Open the
peas, drain the water from them and
rinse under the running water. Allow them to air, spr.cad (jut upon a
shallow china plate as long as possible. Place them in a baking dish or
cook-pot and add a very little water
and a bit of butter and salt and pepper. Some add a teaspoonful of
sugar. \ Set aside.
Prepare the fish. Split it open
and place it skin-side down on a
greased plate. Pour oil over the'top
and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Replace in tlie ice chest close to the ice.
Cover with another plate*. Set your
table before leaving home and cover
it with some device ip prevent dust
getting upon it,
A steak or chops might be substituted for fish. Potatoes creamed and
baked with cheese might replace the
macaroni dish. Baked apples could
be used.
A one-piece, meal is sometim.es desirable. In a baking dish put a slice
of sugar-cured ham. Over this pour
sufficient milk to well cover. Then
put a layer of potatoes cut into one-
fourth  inch  slices.
Moisten the potatoes with miik and
spread a bit of fat trimmed from
some of the ham over it. Sprinkle
with paprika or white pepper. Cook
slowly in a moderate oven. When
the potatoes arc brown and tender,
turn out thc light. This may be reheated just before serving and with
canned fruit and bread and butter
makes a very delicious meal.
From little trips out of the home,
the housewife often returns with a
new "viewpoint 'and in general she
is-much happier for the. change, But

extent-if she has to rush frantically

A friend of ours lost a fineVTersey cow. the other day-
tied her too long. She got tangled ap in the' rope and
broke her neck���a case of too much rope. How many
instanees there are in life that are counterparts of the
above! The cherished of our hearts, oiir own ��� flesh and
blood, are often allowed to gradually slip away from us
and out from and under our control, all; because we love
them so much and hate to' restrict their   pleasures  or  say
' 'no*' to them.
The Rock Candy mill, North
Fork, closed down last week. The
mine will also close. This has
been, brought about largely by tlie
close-down of operations of the

, _. The-following is a.'survey, of; the
copper market'by the- Spokane
Mining . Truth: . "With   sales   of
. electrolytic taking place iu small-
quantities at a, reported price of 12
cents, and the very general'belief
that actuals, transfers .are taking
. place fractionally below that figure,
the.copper., situation.is, certainly
not one ,. to. cause, any particular
hilarity. It is-qiiite. obvious; that
with prices back to. those prevailing at the time war-broke out in;
.1914 and a huge surplus,: approximately, one billion , pounds; on
hand, there is little; hope: for any
-improvement .in the. near future.
-If something of a reassuring nature
. does not'take place soon it. is-, certain that .moreV.wholesale shut-"
downs   will occur,   ond1 in   every
. direction. . -The /metal cannot .be
produced at anywhere near ."the.
present selling price and companies
. that continue production are Toeing
-. at least fiv.e cents a pound, and in
many; cases. much- more.     There
>. appears to be no way of financing
accumulations   and    cessation   of
.,,_ operation?   in   a  genf ral   way  is
' about .the only course that.will en-
srire return to former levels .60 far
...-.labor and. other costs are convened. The.whole situation must
.-.ive.cdnvinced the producer that
ylj this talk of ^isolation''   oh the
'.'.oart of the  United States is pure
. V'bunk."    Unless we can re-establish  trade relations   with   all    of
Europe, our surplus will  continue
to pile up and  the profit made on
paper during the recent  period  of
.high prices will be wiped  out and
serious losses   taken in  addition;

God, and hold any faith in heaven, shed not your tears
