John Albert Sater, son of J_tr.
and Mrs. A. Sater, was drowned
in Boundary Creek on Friday
evening, May 2. John was out
hunting cows in company with
John Kerr, and they attempted to
cross a foot-bridge near the skating
rink. Finding the bridge unsafe
after they had got well on to it,
the'boys started back, John Kerr
making the end safely, while John
Sater, in the act of turning, lost
his balance and fell into the raging torrent. Being unable tb swim
in the swift and cold water, John
was carried down about half a mile
and he��was taken out of the water
by George Hood, who had waded
out into the stream, and with the
aid of a rake, caught the body as
it was going by. -, Many willing
hands tried their best to restore life
but their efforts were of no avail.

in the interests of all that both sides
should hc studied. The local town
and.the local merchant have certain
responsibilities towards thc farmers
of their district, and thc farmers havc
a ccrlaiu duty towards these towns.
Aii effort should bc made to determine what these duties are and to
discharge thcm.
First of all, the. town    should    be
made a  rcal community centre    and
thc necessary facilities    provided    to
make il an attractive meeting    place
for thc  farmers of  thc    surrounding
district ancl their wives aud families.
Too  frequently,  it  is "to be    feared,
farmers are rather given the impression that all the town    cares    about
them is  thc money    they    have    to
spend.    On the other hand, the farmer  is  apt to compare    thc     lower
prices quoted by thc city houses with
the local  merchant's  prices    without
giving heed to anything else.
' When the farmer buys from a city
-house hc is compelled to pay cash in
advance, nor has he  thc privilege of
-first inspecting-the goods- he-purchases.   When he buys from the local
town  merchant    he    thoroughly    examines thc goods in advance of purchase, and frequently buys ou credit,
and,would even resent being    asked
to pay cash.   Vet it is a well known
fact   that goods  cannot  bc   sold    as
cheaply on credit as for cash.
"Tlic local merchant is immediately
at'hand for evcry small purchase and
in all'emergencies: tlic city house is
far away.    Tiie  average  farmer,  expects, and   receives, ' accommodation
from  thc local   merchant'   when    he
needs  it, and relies  on him  to  lake
certain of his produce iu exchange for
goods, but he would never think   of
asking thc cily house' for similar accommodation and ���   assistance,'    and
would not get it if hc did ask for it.
This situation h:i�� e<ci>tcd tor years,
yet  the farmer  is educated  tn    cash
payment��� to.the city-houses."   Why,
city houses called upon to support
every public enterprise in all the
towns in which they sell goods as all
the' retailers do, and arc expected to
do, a considerable hole would bc
made 'in' their profits, and their increased overhead expenses would result iii increased selling prices. What
thc local merchant doei for his community in these days should not be
Representatives Urged    Their  Views
With Vigor Before Commission
Pans. ��� The new draft of the covenant is generally regarded as a great
i improvement   upon   that  which     was

the      Canadian      delegates      pressed
strongly    for     certain     amendments,
some of which arc embodied in    the

London, Ont. ��� Aeroplanes may
become a part of the paraphernalia of
universities in the near future. London's university, Western, has been
given an aeroplane which will be kept
at thc university, and now word has
been received that the British war
mission in the United States has

To Cure Common Ailments the Blood
Must be Made Kich and Red
Nearly all the common diseases lhat
afrlici mankind arc caused by . bad
blood���weak, watery blood poisoned
! by impurities. -Bad blood is the cause
of headaches and backaches, lumbago
aud rheumatism, debility and indigestion, neuralgia, sciatica and other
nerve troubles, lt is bad blood that
causes disfiguring skin diseases like
eczema, and salt rheum, pimples and
eruptions. The severity of the trouble,
indicates how impure the blood is, and
it goes always from bad to worse unless steps are promptly taken to enrich and purify the. blood.    There    is
ized, thc more difficult it will be    tojtution  of  thc  league  is   that  it     will
build up a bright,- attractive,: prosperous local community; thc more thc
town merchants arc patronized, the
better service thcy will be , able to
render, the-greater variety and volume of stocks thcy can carry,-the
closer they can make their prices because the overhead charges of conducting thc store would be less in
proportion to the volume of business
This is an age of co-operation, and
farmer and town merchant should
make it a practice to loyally co-operate the one with the other. lioth
have everything lo gain and nothing
to lose by such action.

War Munitions Stolen
Daring Raid at Collinstown Causes
Grave Apprehension
Dublin. ��� -The audacity of thc
raid for arms at Collinstown airdrome has aroused public opinion to
lhe gravity of th.e situation here.
None of the numerous events which
have occurred throughout the country in the last few months has
brought home with such force the
danger which threatens. This is
probably due to thc fact that the
raid took place within au hour's walk
of the city and also to the importance
of thc capture.
Seventy or eighty-rifles with, adequate ''ammunition in the. hands of
men of thc daring displayed by those
who entered the airdrome and gagged
the guards, cannot fail to make a
deep impression? Obviously these
men did not take thc risk for nothing, and it requires little imagination
to conjure up what thcy may do
with  the weapons.
The Irish Times points out lhal
the raid was an even more audacious
defiance of thc law than any of thc
premonitory' symptoms of the 1916

men ��� wearing the King's uniform

these, it would appear that negotiations for an offensive and defensive
.alliance between Turkey, Germany
and Austria wcic begun here in Constantinople on July 10 (Ncw Style)
1914, and were consummated in a
treaty signed at his konak on . (lie
.Bosphorous on August 1 by himself,'
as representing Turkey, Baron von
Wangcnhcim ^ for Germany, and
Count Pallavicini for\Austria. In this
treaty thc participation of England in
thc -war was excluded and Turkey
was guaianlccd by our allies "against
attach by any other two powers. A
second treaty was signed "on August
10, aftcr the entry of England into
thc war, by thc same three governments. A third treaty, which 'the
Marquis Pallavicini did not sign, between Germany and Turkey, dealt
with thc division of the spoils and
.was signed for Turkey by Envcr and
Halil, president of thc _, chamber, in
thc middle of November.
Every day "the number of arrested
persons is increased, especially by
prisoners from the interior. A'mong
thc latest arc-nintntfio wcrc responsible for the massacres"'of Angora,
Ani, and Mosul, the most notable being Nevzad Bey, military commander
of Mosul, lt will be impossible to
judge all thc prisoners at once���their
number is now well over 300���but
thcy will bc tried "in batches" of ten
to fifteen, according to the" charges
against them.
It is noteworthy that the newspaper Tasfii-i-Efkiar has started s
-public fund for thc maintenance^, of
thc family of Kemal Bey, thc ex-
Kaikaham of'Yozgad, who was condemned to death for ordering Armenian massacres there and Avas hanged
��� several evenings since ..n the Bayazid
Square. It seems almost absuid that
tbe only persons punished should bc
two organizers, Kcmal "and Tcwfik,
chief of the gendarmerie, who "was
sentcijGe<l to. fifteen years' imprisonment in a foi tress. "Thc trial of these
prisoners has -, taken nearly three
months. Thcy showed-absolutely no
repentance or-sorrow for having been
_thc cause of the death of 40,000 Armenians. Meanwhile thc actual murderers,, chiefs of bands, gendarmes,
and others, remain unpunished. Examples should also bc drawn' from
among thcm.

Will Not Wait_for Italians
Conference Has.Qecided to Go Ahead
With Treaty
Paris. ��� ll is planned in peace conference circl.es to go ahead with llie
treaty of peace without 1 egard to any
action by Italy, as it is considered
probable the-'Italian delegation will
not icturn, certainly not within thc
week. The delivery of the treaty and
the first exchanges with the Germans, therefore,- will occur* without
the participation of Italy, and it is
said that this procedure will go forward steadily up till the signing of
thc treay. When thc first reading
wit hthc Germans occui s the pact will
bc presented.
A day or two will be given foi
questions concerning interpretations
of different phases of thc convention,
without, " however, involving a prolonged discussion. The French view
,is that thc German may ask for
two weeks' delay to permit them to
return to Weimar, with an additional
Week for discussion of thc points
presented aftcr their return from thc
temporary German capital. This is a
matter of conjecture, however, as
there is no piccisc information as to
Germany's intentions.
Reports from Beilin are somewhat
contradictory concerning- Germany's
puipoics, as sonic repot ts indicate
that an early signing of thc treaty
is probable, while others say that it
is doubtful whether thc pact will bc
signed al all. These reports, coming
fiom different sources, indicate a lack
of concerted altitude as to thc treaty
and show there is disposition to
leave the decision laigcly with thc
German plenipotentiaries who are
now at Vei sailles. _

a plenary session would bc convoked
-to decide regarding'thc signing of a
plenary peace treaty, as well as lo
co-operate in the peace negotiations.
"We arc in doubt as to what it
would, mean for thc southwestern
corner of the empire if wc refused to
sign thcN peace treaty," said Herr
Fchrcnbach. "I take it that in any
case wc shall not sign a'peace which
leaves prisoners still in captivity and
does not bring thc raising of tlic
blockade. Neither will, we sign a peace
which surrenders -ithc' Saar region to
our enemies and proiniscs Danzig to
the Poles.
"The. government and parliament

Undue Credit
To Germany
'\s a prelude to her attack on civilization, Germany did two things. For
forty ycais she built up a vast military machine at home, and for forty
years, through well planned and skillfully executed propaganda throughout thc world,-she taught thc gospel
of her superior efficiency. This latter
to such an extent and so successfully
that, by 1914, to usc an expressive
though slangy expression, she had
lhe world "buffaloed."
This is not to say Germany was
not trfificient, not superlatively organized, for shc was. Xot only was the
theoiy of efficiency talked on cvciy
occasion, but it was demonstrated in
her manufactured products ancl thc
thoroughness ot her immense export
trade. If a German manufacturer
could not compete in any foreign
port with any aiticle made elsewhere,
Ids government promptly came to his
relief with lower ocean freight rates,
or some other form of subsidy. The
natural result of all this was to create
and foster a world-wide conviction
that Germany was a supcrnation, head
and shoulders above all others, and
therefore ^impregnable. To resist
Germany when she set out to- conquer was lo invite and insure disaster. In short, ihe expectation was to
destroy in advance a world morale,
and thus reduce successful conquest
to its simplest terms.
This system vvas not without its tc-
stilts and effect. Thc German at
home, and " with few exceptions
abroad, was absolutely grounded in
thc conviction that the fatherland
vvas invincible. Wc can each recall
those Germans in this country, including those who had been naturalized here for many years, and who
eventually took sides with the United
States against Germany, who in 1914,
1915 and 1916~w"cre both indignant
and angry at any suggestion of German failure, or of responsibility for
starting the war.
It is quite true that, in thc early
days of thc struggle, victory perched
on German banners, and the tide of
battle flowed one way. This apparently was proof of the claim of supcrnation. What with millions of men
with ycars of thc most severe military
.training: guns __with undreamed-of
range, throwing shells of unheard-of
tize; ncw explosives of uncqualcd
power and violence; airships; submarines; gas shells; liquid fire, and all
thc other ucw-in-civilizcd warfare
weapons, thc claim apparently was
established. Thc world seemed voiceless to refute thc assertion.
Then gradually���so slowly at first
there seemed no progress whatever���
-lhc allies began where Germany had
commenced forty ycars ago, to gird
up their loins. It was slow work���
that of fighting a defensive battle
againbt vastly unequal odds with one
hand and building an offensive with
the other. Thc conditions were supremely hard, for it is one thing to
plan and invent and experiment and
construct and lest out, all under the
conditions of peace, and 'quite another lo commence at thc foundation
to do thc same when carrying on a
In only a little more, than four
ycars, thc allies had searched*out and
organized their inventive and scientific minds, their chemists, their builders of guns-and submarine's and air
��raft, and had brought, their fighting
machinery���-with thc exception"of,the
?6-mi!c gun���up to thc standard
which Germany had required forty
years to accomplish, and in some respects had gone, even better. With
thc advent of the United States came
A tremendous impulse of inventive accomplishment which in scarcely more
than a year had conceived, and made
in  vast  quantities,  weapons  in   com-
stanlly  annihilate    any    aimy      into
whose ranks ii is hurled.
Had thc armistice been delayed
only a few days, there would not havc
been left alive a single soldier in all
thc Mctz fortifications. A few planes
hovering so far above its guns as to
be mcic specks iu the sky; a few gas
bombs dropped among the forts and
a few moments later, not a living soul
left lo challenge or surrender. And
this shell, ihe result of only a few
months' effort, makes thc Gcrmair
picparation of forty years as the snail
i< to a hare.
These words arc not written for
the purpose of any self-laudation of
what thc allies accomplished cliicfly
in thirty-sk months, although deserved. History will emphasize this fact
far beyond what the most of us realize today. The essential thing wc
should giasp is, not lo permit ourselves to accept in future as wc have
in thc pasl, without question, what is
declared to us by Germany, for
there is cvciy reason to believe that
a country which found its deceptive
propaganda so profitable in ycars
gone by is not going to abandon its
foi nulla when wc once-more settle
down to peace, conditions. "Wc may,
with equal advantage, each one for
himself, question the integrity and
motive of many statements which
arc made with so much assurance,
and which we meekly accept without
any other proof and authority than
that of thc speaker's-word, lf what
wc are urged to believe is so, it is
capable of proof; if the evidence docs
not support the statement, we simply
delude ourselves.
Docs anyone imagine lhat, if thc
German people who were alive on
that fateful August day, 1914, could
havc knowirwhat i.s known now, thcy
would havc gone into thc war?
Shortage Of Farm Help
The Demand Is Far in Excess of the
Regina. ��� Hon. Charles A. Dunning, minister in charge of thc bureau
of labor for the province of Saskatchewan, says that there will bc a
shoitagc of farm labor in the province this spring despite all the efforts of thc department to bring in
"Wc realized over a month ago
that there would bc a shortage," said
Mr. Dunning, "and decided that
at least two thousand men would havc
to bc brought in from other provinces
if thc demand was to be met. Wc
immediately took up the question with
thc Dominion immigration official
the central clearing houses of the
various provincial employment offices throughout Canada, and have
done all in our power to bring in
men, but we find the demand far
greater than thc supply.
"We have made a special effort lo
secure men from British Columbia, as
this is thc season of tlie ycar when
there is not such a heavy call for la-
-bor at the coast, ?iid although it is
always difficult lo peisuadc men from
Briiish Columbia lo come to the prairie provinces, we were fortunate in
securing about 475 experienced farm
hands from that province. Most of
these men went direct to thc farms
but a number were distributed from
thc provincial employment agencies at
Saskatoon, Regina, Moose Jaw and
other points.
"From Kaslcrn Canada -we-wcic
able to secure only.about 350 men.
Wc arc hoping for a few hundred
more from different sources although
wc cannot possibly secure enough
men to satisfy thc needs of the many
districts which are reporting marked
shortages of farm help."
Prospectors    Could    Be    Landed
���    Unprospectcd Regions With
The Dominion mc-mbci foi the
Yukon, Dr. Thompson, has entered a
strong appeal for the employment of
aii ships of ihe Britisii K-33 type for
the development of communications
with the Yukon. He points out that
from lidmonton to Herschel Island,
on thc Arctic, would be only about
twenty hours' flight, at the late the
R-33 is expected to travel. From Edmonton to Dawson City would bc
only fifteen hours. Since dirigibles
of the R-33 type can lifc from 30 to
60 tons, it should bc possible to usc
thcin with ���advantage in transportation in the far north. There are airplanes that can carry several tons,
but the distance.-, they tiavel, at one
flight, arc ccmpai ativel,', short, and
gasoline supply difficulties limit theni
to a moderate radius from tlicir stations. The ��as bag dirigible can slay
aloft a week or two. AP70 or 80
miles an horn it ran cross the Atlantic and return within a week. A German Zeppelin went from Bulgaria lo
German Kasl Africa and bark without landing. This is a longer trip
than any that would bc required in
the far north. ]f suitable termini
were available at certain points in
the Yukon, and perhaps at the mouth
of thc Mackenzie rivci, prospectors
could be landed in thc unprospectcd
regions, with plenty of supplies, and
communication kept up wilh them at
periods. If, says thc Toronto Mail
and Empire in commenting on Dr.
Thompson's suggestion, Canada has
to wait until the giowth of population, or the discovery of vast mineral
riches, makes tailioad extension advisable to these distant regions, it
will wait a long time. It declares
that thc air is the natural medium of
tiansport in this case, and urges Dr.
Thompson to press his case. The development of the airship, following a
successful tians-Atlantic flight, ought
lo bring ibis proposal into the arena
of practical ;>flairs.

An observer attached to thc first

Unloading Grain
By Air Power
The two powerful floating pneumatic grain elevators recently put into
service at the. port of London arc admirable examples of modern British
labor-saving equipment. Each elevator floats on a 00-foot pontoon carrying a 220 horse power oil engine
which drives a high speed turbo-cx-
hattstor by means of which a partial
vacuum is caused in a suction pipe
line. Thc air rushing in at thc free
end of thc line sucks up the grain
from the vessel's hold and deposits it
in a receiving chamber, from which
il is discharged through a valve and
thereafter handled mechanically. Two
suction pipes arc provided with each
(float and they are raised and lowered
by means of an electric winch driven
by an explosion-proof electric motor.
A similar type of motor( rendered
necessary by thc inflammable dust
raised in handling grain) drives an
elevator which delivers the grain into a weigh house, where thc grain is
automatically weighed. Thence it
passes through shoots into sacks or
into hopper baiges rlongsidc the pontoon. A 35 horse power oil engine
supplies the current for power and
lighting purposes. All the plant and
equipment wcrc , British throughout.
Pneumatic elevators of this type not
only save labor by thoroughly cleaning out a ship's hold without rc-
trimming, but they arc much healthier for .the workmen than any other
equipment, as special machinery is
used for exti acting thc dust. Both
pontoons havc been in .regular service for some time and have proved
thoroughly satisfactory. Each has .a
capacity of 100-tons pcr hour when
working with wheal.
Greater Demand for Wool
Regina, Sask. ��� High prices for
wool, mutton and lambs for sonic
years to conic, is prophesied by Professor W._ II. J. Tisdalc oT the University of Saskatchewan. Thc professor believes that thc price of wool
this ycar will nol fall below 45 or
SO^ecnts pcr pound and may go even
higher. Sir Arthur Goldfinch, one of
thc greatest living authorities on thc
sheep and wool situation, reccnlly declared that thc stock of wool in" the
world's markets would be less in
1920 than in 1919. Hc estimated a
large increase in wool production, but
still larger increases iii the demand
by consumers.

All Must Co-operate Sympathetically
and Efficiently    -
lt needs moic than intelligent individual effort on the part of moth-
cis and others concerned if child
life is to bc conserved, ancl the wastage of this precious national resource
prevented in thc 'future. Some
things can only be secured by community action. All must co-operate
sympathetically and efficiently -if all
thc children of thc community are to
bc properly protected. Thc most efficient anil conscientous mother
works against heavy odds if there is
a laxity throughout thc community
wilh regard to such matters as cleanliness, epidemics and moral environment. Thc childicn of even the
cleanest homes are never entirely
safe as long as dirt ancl disease arc
allowed to harbor in any section. A
slum or shack district is a menace to
the whole community, and the more
fortunate people who live in thc
more favorable surroundings often
pay heavily for their selfish indifference to thc well-being of those of
their neighbors who arc less fortunate. Social service not only brings
its benefits to those served, but, very
often to those who serve. And in
thc sphere of child welfare it, not
infrequently, proves to bc a most
effective means of self-protection.
Children catch one .anothcrs diseases, hence thc necessity for community hygiene. Disease producing
germs abhor cleanliness, but thrive in
filth. They arc soon destroyed by
sunlight, but survive long iit dirt,
dampness and darkness. Some day
our enlightened communities will insist ou a minimum of cleanliness and
decent living conditions. All children should havc the same chance, and
whatever is necessary to secure this
should bc the concert) of all.
A largc-proportion of the waking
hours of most growing children is
spent outside the home, where they
arc exposed to moral as well as physical contamination. It is manifestly
in the interest of all thc children ancl
homes that parents should lake an
intelligent interest in other children
than their own, and by united action,
raise thc standard of the whole physi-'
cal and^moral environment-of childhood. Much could bc done if existing agencies wcre~bettcr supported
There is need for very much
sympathetic co-operation between
parents and thc public school. The
same is undoubtedly line of thc
Sunday school. This institution is today the most effective one wc havc,
making for thc moral uplift of childhood, but with a more sympathetic
backing its possibilities for increased
efficiency along this line arc almost
limitless. Thc public support of the
health authorities would also make
for the elimination of epidemics, pure
milk and water, supply, and sanitation. And w'hen communities learn
to appreciate, better than thcy do
now, the paramount -importance of
thc child, thcy will find time to organize for the study of the problems
of childhood, and thc piotcction and

Feeling Fine
Was All Run Down,- Tired, and  Ex-

Use of the Great
Food Cure
. Scxsmiih, Alta., May 13.���This   is
tlie cheering sort of letter "that comes
, from people who -have used Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food. This treatment
forms ncw, rich blood and rich blood
builds up thc depleted nerve .cells
until tlie thrill of ncw life and energy
is felt in every organ afid member of
the human body.
Because Mr. Edwards was also
having some trouble with thc liver
and kidneys he also used Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to awaken
the action of these filtering organs.
The combined use of these medicines
, usually produces most excellent results, even in the most complicated
cases. .
-- Mr. -Stephen- D. -Edwards,-Sex-
smith, Alta., writes:
"My nervous system was alt run
down, and I also suffered with my
liver and kidneys. I could not sleep
at night, and got up in thc morning
feeling tired and uurefrcshed. I used
to feel as if I wanted to die. In reading Dr. Chase's Almanac I noticed
the number of letters from people
who had been benefitted by the usc
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food and Kidney-Liver Fills, so I commenced using ttiis combined treatment. It has
done mc a great deal of good, for I
can now sleep well and do not havc
that horrid feeling I used to havc in
the mornings. I am gaining in weight
and feel much better generally."

God (v. 9, 10): The familiar inter-^
course which man enjoyed with thc
Almighty-was marred,and broken by
sin. .Sin makes lifc intolerable in thc
divine presence". Adam and,Eve not
only hid from God's presence, but
Adam began to ,makc excuses�� and
even laid the blame on God.'
2. The serpent was 'degraded and
henceforth became a type of sin and
Satan (v. 14; cf. Num. 21:9; Jolih 3:
H; Rev. 12:9). This doom was" pro;
nousiccd without trial.- In thc case of
man it was not so.    .
3. .The undying enmity between
the two seeds (v.* 15; cf. John 8:40-
45; Matt. 23:33). .The, antagonism
thus begun reached its climax" in ttic
crucifixion of Christ. 'Satan's seed has
been ever since endeavoring to destroy the Lord's work aiid his workers.
4. Tlic ultimate victory of the woman's seed (v. 15). Satan harassed
the woman's seed; bruised his heci.
but finally tlic stroke was made which
crushed tlie serpent's head (John 12:
31; Hcb..2:14; 1 John 3:8). This wks
thc first gleam of thc glorious light
of the gospel of.Christ. Thc victory
was marvelous, bufe the cost was infinite (Isa. 33; 2 Cor. 5:21).-
5. --Judgment upon the woman (v.
I6).=This rotates to"her as:a wife-and
mother; also to her subordination to
man. This is God's decree, and all
efforts of freeing one's self from it
are fighting against God. '   .
6. Man's new relationship to thc
earth (v. 17-19). Tlie cartli was
cursed on his account. Because of thc
rank growth of "thorns and thistles
man must make au increased effort to
exist. Man. with his sinful nature
would be in a bad state without the
necessity of toil (Rom. 8:19-22).
7. Death (v. 19). This includes
physical and spiritual death���both the
result of sin.
8. Expulsion from thc garden (v.
24). This was an act of great mercy.
To have partaken'of the tree of life
and live forever in a sinful state
would havc been intolerable.

Belfast. ��� Ireland, by reason of its
geographical position, will play an
important part in thc development of
travelling by airship. There is now-
being rapidly completed al Alder-
grovc, County Antrim, a magnificent
airdrome,' which will probably be one
of thc stations for the trans-Atlantic
flight and later on thc Ulster centre
for tlic expected postal service and
pleasure aerial cruisers. Twelve
months ago the park, which is 23
miles from Belfast by rail, was agricultural land; today it is admitted by
experts, who have inspected it, to
bc one of thc best aviation grounds
in tlie United Kingdom.
It was orilj* at thc end of June last
tliat a start was made with the work,
and in spite of the bad weather and
the lack of skilled labor, tlie 400 acres
which constitute thc park, were cleared and drained. Meanwhile the foundations for the first hangar were laid,
and it has been completed for sonic
time. It is divided into three conv
partmcnts.-eacli 150-feet-wide.- -Thc
foundations of a second and larger
hangar were laid, but the work was
suspended wlien the armistice was
signed. The administration offices,
men's rooms, and sleeping quarters
for thc 120 men, who will form thc

Editor The Ledge.
Sir:���Jusfe a.suggestion which,
if acted upon, may prove of immense value to Greenwood and
vicinity. There are thousands of
returned soldiers who are looking
for a suitable place to acquire land
under the Soldiers Settlement
scheme, and Green*pod caireasily
get 40 or 50 of raese soldiers to
take a ranch in this vicinity. If
tho citizens were to form themselves into a kind of a Board of
Trade, get listings of the various
farms for sale, write to the Soldiers
Re-establishment' Bureau, Vancouver, and inform fehem that
Greenwood can place on land a
certain number of families, I have
no doubt that an expert land
valuator, would immediately come
to Greenwood and look the proposition over. This is done in other
places. Why not Greenwood?
-The Murray ranch and adjoining
places, which are a second Okanagan, if properly handled, could be
purchased by the government, cut
up in fifty acre farms and given to
the soldiers.
The G. W. V. A. of Grand
Forks, is endeavoring and will
eventually succeed, in getting rid
of the undesirable aliens and the
land will be given to returned'
The returned soldier feels .that
he is a returned citizen, having a
broader view of life than he formerly had and will feake a greater
interest in the affairs of his
country, knowing fehat ife is a land
worth fighting for, and he is determined that undesirables shall
not live in our midst. The district needs population. We need
quantity, ife,is true, but above all
we must have quality, and if we
cannot have quality then quantity
must be sacrificed.
A creamery would. no doubfe be
established and Greenwood/ would
become a prosperous farming community. The" soldiers want feo be
one big family, or brotherhood of
real men and they will never abuse
the duty and tryst that has been
placed upon their shoulders, by being led'into political factions that
are going to use them for the betterment of parfey. The soldier will
feake an active part" in fehe development of our country as a land of
contentment, happy homes, high
ideals for the service of humanity
and apply fehe same qualities which
won undying renown in Belgium
and France.
Get together, .gentlemen, use
some high intelligence, practical
ability, co-operating good will and
courage" and" I have no" hesitancy
in saying that Greenwood will then
soon have a prosperous settlement
of soldiers settlers.
