BETTER MARKETING METH
XIHAT the farmers throughout
the country need is a better sys
tem of marketing.
Every farmer in the nation suf
fers through the antiquated mar
keting methods now employed.
Somehow or other, most Eastern
ers look upon the farm problem as
remote. But actually, the East has
as much of a problem as the West
The sixteen states on the Atlantic
seaboard produce, in value, more
than a fifth of all the corn grown
in the United States.
They produce two thirds of all the
buckwheat; nearly half the pota
toes, cabbage, celery, tomatoes and
peaches; a third of the apples and
about a quarter of the carrots, let
tuce, peas, onions and hay.
Their production of dairy prod
ucts is nearly a third. They rate a
sixth in live stock. Their output
is quite large in all standard cer
eals. True, these Eastern farmers live
close to big markets. They are not
affected by an exportable surplus.
However, the slow routing be
tween farm and table is a tremen
dous handicap to them.
Look over the facts given above,
then decide for yourself whether the
East has a farm problem or not!

THE BLACK SHEEP.
A WOMAN has written to me, wanting to know what to do In
the case of her son. She says he won't go to school, he wont
do useful work and tends generally to consort with dissolute com
panions. I may as well confess right now that I cannot answer her ques
tion. I know all the arguments about love and kind treatment and
psychological study and patience and so on, and I know also that
there are cases that none of these things fit
I do not suppose there is one family among my readers unable
to confess to some sort of black sheep; some boy or girl that per
sists in going wrong In spite of everything.
Much is said of preachers' sons who turn out badly and the Im
plication is that they have been treated too strictly in their youth,
so that in later years they rebel.
Some say that children should be carefully disciplined and rig
idly instructed, but such children have not always done so well in
In fact I have known the children of utterly loose and careless
parents to turn out to be strict models of propriety, and others who
have had every advantage of favorable environment go swiftly to
Some say that children should be given their freedom and al
lowed to do as they please, but that does not always work.
You may talk about your heredity and about a child inheriting
the bad traits of his grand uncle and about environment and about
the whole trouble with children being that they are not properly
disciplined. All this is very interesting reading. But the fact re
mains that the irresponsible and wayward sheep is in almost every
family of my acquaintance.
Not long ago a prominent banker showed me a letter he had
from his son, telling him that if he did not receive some money
immediately he would commit suicide. The reply of the banker
may not have been judicious, but it was interesting. He said to his
son. "I have no money to send you, but don't let that deter you."

Something More About
Church Army Members
By REV. STANLEY MOORE
With the coming of the members
of the Church Army to Heppner on
the 30th of this month it is interest
ing to know something about each
one and note how each comes from
a different walk of life and now is
doing this splendid work aa laymen
within Christ's church.
Captain Frank Bloxham, the lead
er of this group, is a native of Birm
ingham, a large Industrial city in
the center of England and has been
in the Church Army for about five
years. Prior to this he was active
in church activities while carrying
on his secular occupation as a me
chanical engineer in one of the larg
est works in the Midlands. Since
anwering the call to full-time ser
vice he has worked in various parts
of the old country on a mission car
avan in the rural sections seeking
to win men's hearts to his Lord and
Master. Coming to this country in
the early part of last year, Captain
Bloxham has worked in the New
England states and in the southern
and midwestern states in evangel
istic effort He has found in this
rather extensive tour that the main
thing that is needed is that the
Jesus of history become the Jesus
of personal, practical experience to
all men. During the world war the
captain was in Flanders with the
58th Division and he speaks from
what he has seen of the things that
help us to live our lives today.
Captain Charles L. Conder halls
from a small industrial town in the
West Riding of Yorkshire. From
schooldays until early manhood he
was a general clerk in the office of
a farmers' agricultural trading so
ciety, a cooperative concern of the
River Calder valley. His ambitions
were in the circle of commerce but
these were not fulfilled for the hand
of God was to intervene. Always
an active worker in the church, a
growing conciousness came to him
that God needed witnesses in the
world to extend the Kingdom of
Heaven on earth. Leaving his bus
iness career he answered the call
and joined the ranks of the Church
Army for training. Since training
he has been at work in the diocese
of Bradford as the missioner in
charge of the diocesan mission van.
Last winter his work was in that
part of Yorkshire known as Bronte
land, familiar to all readers of the
Brontes. In April of this year he
came over to this country and until
August was in Connecticut carry
ing on missions in the rural parts.
Captain George Hill, the youngest
member of the party, has only been
with the Church Army since Jan
uary of this year and his experi
ence, though short, in the homeland
on the mission vans has proved of
great value to him during his work
in this country. Like all members
of the society he has been in secu
lar work before offering himself for
service and was engaged as an as
sistant in an outfitting store. His
work this summer has been that of

By REV, SAMUEL D. PRICE, D. D.
The quarterly temperance lesson
has been a feature of the interna
tional Uniform series for many
years. Its introduction In the Sun
day school was followed by the
scientific temperance instruction in
the public schools in the various
states of the Union. The general
purpose is to teach the basic fact
that alcohol Is a poison and the ef
fect that such a poison has on In

subject is a live one today, not only
in America but throughout the
world. In the United States the

idol worship prevailed and any re
ligion involved a sacrifice of on
kind or another. Animals were
slain to propitiate the various gods,
and there were many of these so
called deities. The priests of the
various cults could eat only a very
small portion of meat resulting
from such slaughter. Both the
economic and natural thing to do
was to offer the meat for sale, for
there was nothing the matter with
it from the standpoint of food.

which was undertaken in the south
ern states. He is a native of Hamp
shire in the south of England.
Captain Edward Hodgkinson is of
English parents who emigrated to
America five years years ago and
took up residence in New Bedford,
Mass. His occupation was that of
cloth inspector in a textile plant
where cotton goods were manufac
tured. Although always a churchv
man and a worker amongst the
boys of the parish he never exper
ienced the real joy of Christianity
until a column of Church Army
men held a mission in his parish
church, and, through the power of
the Holy Spirit created an atmos
phere of joyful Christianity which
(although not instantnaeously) was
to change his whole attitude to
wards religion and life in general.
Through their earnestness and sin
cerity he was in due time led to the
foot of the Cross and to acknow
ledge the Master as his Saviour and
friend. Realizing that money, while
it afforded pleasure and comfort of
life, could not satisfy the longing of
the soul, he was led to join the
ranks of the Church Army in Jan
uary of this year in the hope that
