Wheat Pool Movement
of Western C.u:.ula In less than three years, have estab-
:|  co-oin-raiivo organization  of its kind in the world. The
Pool,  with Us throe units in  tho provinces of .Manitoba,'
-Tim funni.Ys
IMi.m! tlu- large;
���'���unadiun  Wlioal
Snskatdinwau and Alberta, now has a lotal membership of 125,000 farmers,
who control  .1^,230,000 ol the 21,000,000 acrer; sown  to wheat last year ln
ilireo pt'iiii-io provinces.    It is handling the sale of the greater part of
exports moro wheat
the'wheal, production * of Canada, and Canada already
t'.iaa any country in the world. .. . "*
Tho first of ihe three wheat pools commenced * business in* the province
cf Alberta in October, !923, and at tho close* of the first pool year ou July
lo. 11)21, had handled 34.500.000 bushels ofcwheat shipped by Its members.   ,,
Meanwhile Manitoba,  and Saskatchewan were organizing pools. In  tho
fall of I!)iM. they had perfected provincial organizations and the three, pro-
vinciM iheu merged their, selling slrength into ono giant marketing organization, known as "Thy Canadian Co-operative Wheat Producers, Limited." Tills
.���agency is incorporated under a Federal charter, with, very wide powers. Its
.  I unction ia to take, delivery of the wheat'from each of the respective pro-
- v I acini pools aad io place it on the. markets of'the world in such a manner
ii:. to' secure, a price coniineiisurate with the natural law of supply and demand. Each of tho throe porvlncial pools is responsible for. gathering the
wheat' of its own members and plaelny it at the disposal of the central selling
agency, which is controlled by a board ol' nine directors composed of.the
president, vice-president and one director of each provincial pool.
The largest proportion of tlie wheat is sold by "the selling agency to importers and buyers in different countries of the world, " for tho ageiicy'has
direct selling connections with every, wheal, importing counlry and its own
representatives in 51 ports of tlie world. The funds whicli accrue from the
.'.ales aro disbursed to the members of the three "pools. This method of
handling wheat provides a large volume through one agency and reduces
the cost of operation to a -minimum. - .*' :7.
ii is difficult, if-not impossible, to estimate in dollars and cents the
victual increase in. the price of .wheat attributable to the "operations of the
wheal pool, but the Pool, controlling as it does, over-50 per cent of Canada's
exportable surplus,--has the opportunity of preventing large volumes' of
wheat being rushed on to the market aiid creating a glut which���'inevitably
forces prices dov/u. The strength of the Pool ���llos'in its stabilizing power and'
- lu "its facilities for selling in great quantities'* ami in all countries.
This vsat co-operative', organization of farmers grew out of tho experience
of fixed prices for wheat, established by the,Canadian Government during tho
war, regulated by an official body known as the Wheat Board. Immediately
after the war the farmers of Weatorn Canada urged  the Government to
'maintain the Wheat Board, but as it had been^brought into being and had
functioned under a. War Measure'Act, the machinery for its-maintenance
'.automatically passed out of existence.* with'the signing of the Peace Treaty.
*~ The wheat producers oC4ho Gaundian West, learning that thc.,Wheat Board
'could not continue, began to realizes the necessity of an organization of their
.own to handle the marketing'of- their wheat in a way that would prevent
a too wide "fluctuation and secure a better stabilization of prices.,  ���
Through lho Pool the wheat is haudledi af cost aiul therefore, at a
saving to the***fanner. The Central Selling Ageney with its .direct connections is able.to��elIminaf.e some of tlio handling charges between .producers
and ���consum'er that' are incidental under any other .method of marketing.
Moreover, the Pool - relieves 'the' farmer of the necessity of.: guessii'g
lhe right time to sell'.his grain and assures him of the average prlce-for the
year on all wheat it; sells. This orderly marketing avoids the disastrous
effects of the ..'flooding of the market in" the fall which prevailed uuder^the
old system. v ' ,' ���
Tho Wheat Pool in. Western Cariada is. a notable example of the advancement made by the farmci-s of this* stage. Already' It; has shown the
possibilities and advantages of co-operative marketing.Tinder .the old.system the farmer sold.his wheat, and took; what the ���market offered. In the
Pool system' he. delivers his grain when convenient and obtains the average
price of the selling period, together with the saving-in the handling costs.
Tlie Poor price to every member is tlie price at Port William,' le^s handling
���^eluiTges=an-d=f ['eighty
lenglh of the haul..     .      ��� y ���  '    *    -.',;-.
. With .the development of Canada's agricultural areas, only one-fifth of
which arc as yet under cultivation, the. growth.of the Canadian Wheat Pool
may reach a magnitude never before conceived in co-operative marketing.   .
International, Strife is Insanity on a
Wholes-ale Scale
It was the fashion, omy a few. years
ago, to glorify war and to create in
tho minds of young men an impression of its necessity. Germany was
particularly eager to give its youth
a strong martial spirt and to hold before them military ideals. If Stresemann speaks for his countrymen���and
there is no reason to doubt that ho
does���tho Germans havo had a complete change of heart. The appalling
sacrifices of tho war havte taught
them, as they havo taught other nations, that war ls not glorious, but always calamitous. International warfare is insanity on the wholesale scale.
It ls of course, natural and right that
young men should go co the'defnse
of their country when It is threatened;
it is noble to lay down one's life in a
just patriotic cause. But if wars can
be prevented.as they can, if-the proper
state* of mind is cultivated, il is tho
duty of. every young person to help
the movement along.    ,

May Obtain Relief by Enriching
the Blood Through'the Use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
In the days of our -grandfathers
rheum'atism was tli'ought to be lho tin-
avoidable penalty of middle life and
old age. Almost every elderly person
had rheumatism, as well as many
young people. It was thought that
rheumatism was duo to exposure to
cold aud dampness, and it was treated
with liniments and hot applications
which sometimes- gave temporary relief but did not remove the trouble.
In those days there were many rheu--
matio cripples. Now medical science
understands that rheumatism is a disease of the blood arid that with good'
red blood any mau or womau of any
age can defy rheumatism. There are
now many elderly people who have
never felt a twinge ofjiieumafism, because they have kept tlifelr blood in
good condition, and there aro many
who have conquered it by building up
their weak, .watery: blood. The blood-
enriching'qualities .of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills is becoming _ every year
more'widely'known', and thcvlnoro
general use of these pills has robbed
rheumatism of its terrors. At the
first sign,of thin, Impure blood protect yourself against Ihe ravages- of
disease by. taking Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills.-;. Tliey;have helped thousands���
if you give them a fair tiial they will
not disappoint yoiu Their value in the
case of rheumatism is proved by tho
statement ' of Mr. Finlay Beaton,
Blackstone, N.S.',- who says:���"1 itoi
it a'duty to tell you of the wonderful
benefit I derived from thc use' of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I suffered untold agony from* rheumatism and a
run-down condition.. The tioubl.e left
me incapable of work of any kind, and
for a part of the time I was unable
to move without tlie assistance of a
cane. I took different medicine from
doctors, and also otlier remedies that
were recommended, but -did not improve and bad about-given up hope of
getting better -when a Mend advised
me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I
did this.-.with.'tho result that within
four months F was as wil a. man as-i
over I had been.' i can say that I was
a, complete wreck when I began using
'Div. Williams' Pink Pills and that this
medicine completely built up my
health. -Thjs was some years ago,
since. I give this statement hoping
It will/benefit others."    .

The1 Spirit Of Ambition'
Forging        Ahead        by        Courage,
""Perseveiiance   and   Industry'
Do you have ambiJon. Doubtless
you think you havo, but have,you?
Do you roally know what .ambition
is? Says Herbert N. Cassoii: "Probably not more' than one man' out'of
ten has any amWlUon at all. Ambition ia not merely wishing and hoping and-painting picture's in your mind
of what a groat man you will he. Daj-
'dreaming! That is not ambition. Being
discontented wiih what you've, got!
That is not ambition. Reading about
glo;-ious deeds and imagining youracll
d'Jing things' like that���That is not
ambition, .^ ^
"No.-- Ambition is active, not passive.-^Ambition is the process of self-
development. " It Is a day-by-day
matter. It Is something you Do, not
something you Wish. Ambition Is
wishing plus"wi!l-power tind perseverance. An ambitious man. is one who
does his job batter today than "he did
it yesterday. lie is a man who is im-
pi;oving-���gaining���^climbing ��� moving
steadily up to toward thc top. No
lazy man" is ever ambitious. He only
pretends hc -is, to excuse his laziness.
Ambition is only another word.for
growth. And growth depends 'on courage and Industry and reading good
books, an'd common sense, and keeping at. il. If a ^pung man wants to
become more ambitious, he can do so
by following these two simple rules:
i . "Learn something,, new every
day. . -. -
2. "Do _. .something better every
day. ��� ~ .
"Tho test of true ambition is Action."' ^ ' ���
'. Now, after that,' ask yourself again
If 3'ou^really are ambitious and aro
genuinely striving to make your am,-
bi tions materialize.���Forbes Maga7lne.

Ono of the, most-potent ways    in
v.'liicii the Canadian Pacific Railway is
advertising Canada both to  thtf^Do-

'wo^ld is through the work of iho-Exhibits  Branch of the  Company, and
-ome idea of the. latitude and comprc-
hcnsivonoss of the    efforts   of   this
branch may bc gathered from the fact
that' at the time this is written pcven
expositions are being stagod simultaneously under ils direction���at thu Canadian National Inhibition at Toronto;
at   iho   fiesiiul-centennial   Exhibition
al. Philadelphia; and at fairs ai Que
bee,    Sherbroolcc,    London,   Ontario,
I-'rederictoLi and    Saint   John,    Now
Bnuiswitk. And this is but a phase of
tho ���unceasing work  which  is  being
porformcdi by'lhe' Company iu'keeping Canada ancl (he Canadian Pacific
Railway before the eyes ol the world.
. For years the Canadian Pacific Railway has participated   with' an   outstanding display at tho Canadian Xa_
tional Exhibition at Toronto, and the
exhibit, annually Improved", is declared
to be finer than ever'Ihi^yoar.' Months
of study on lho part of directors, weeks
of labor ou the .part pf painters', engineers and  mechanics, 'have_rcolilri-
buted to the fine artuiic urosentaUon,
statrling for its clever'illuslous and
unique lighting effects'/The whole presents a very eofhpfete survey of Can-
ada, its   scenic-attractions,   agricultural aud   industrial    resources   and
commercial life.' A model train,'electrically. ope'ratecL and illuminated, specially brought  from   the' British   Empire "Exhibition at Wembley, where for
two years it was a centre o'f attraction, runs In front of a. frieze which
"takes the visitor through a. cross section of Canada from Quebec to Vancouver.    Such, accurate attention has
boon paid' to detail that central points
as   Quebec,   Montreal, ��� Toronto,   the
Twin Cities, Winnipeg, Banff, Vancouver and' other cities are easily recognized.
Having regard to the increasing national character of the ��� Canadian National Exhibition, andUhe manner In
which it Is attracting exhibitors and
vsitors from, .all parts- of the globe,
this is-* to be considered a national
work of world-wid.o advertisement, in
lino with"the policy adopted by fhe
company in 1911 when, inaugurating
exhibits, ot neglecting no opportunity
of bringing Canada forcibly- and ap-
pealingly to the attention of the world.
It ls in a,'way comparable' to tho work
the company performs periodically by
reprosontation through elaborate and
expensive exhibits at the-world's larger expositions.
Some of these have been the Now
York Land Show in "foil" and 1912;
the'Chicago Land Show.in'1913; the
San Francisco Exhibition in 131-1 and
1915; tho Foirede Lyons in 1918; the
New,York Chemical'Exhibition; and
the Tokio Peace Exposition. For two
years the company was represented
through a handsome pavilion at tlio

Hospital Directors Thanks
The Directors of the Greenwood & District Hospital take
this opportunity of thanking,the
Ladies Hospital Auxiliary for
their efforts in raising funds for
the Hospital. Their organization
arranged to hold a series of dances
to help defray the expense* of
purchasing the operating room
equipment. Three dances were
held which through their capable
management realized around $200,
part of this was donated : in cash
to the Hospital, the remainder
was used to supply necessary
equipment renewals., The dances
proved a great success both financially and the amount of enjoyment got. from^ them by those
attending. The ladies deserve
great praise for their untiring
efforts, and another series of
dances would no doubt meet with
the support of the public at some
future date.
