ha was well known here and on several occasions had conducted anniversary serviced in the baptist church here mrs solomon says the thrifty housewife not only counts every penny but vcry pint and every pound wasteful woman may dip out with spoon faster than man can bring in with shovel man oh environment it is worthy of notice that wherever situation is desirable mankind usually claims the credit of creating it nut wlierever utuatlon is faulty and sclf dcatructhe and full of injustice and pain mankind has tendency to charge that up to nature so you will and large proportion of partisans claiming that it is the economic system which makes men what they are they blame the faults of our industrial system for all the faults which we behold in man kind generally and you uill find other men who ay tlmt man creates his own conditions that if the economic industrial or social tystem la bad it is but reflection of uhat man time if is his social condl tlonr being determined by his own nature it may be true of course that these tilings interact it probably is true but it would be hard gainsay that ihe point of beginning the casual motie power is in man himself once fcjrtmjii and nature and human rights represent the stronger force mankind is still creative tnough to change the tyrtem to conform with human impcra enough lo enjoy it from the nearest utttti box february 8th 1937 the editor acton pr fsiiji dear sir will you bo kind enough to allow mo to reply to the editorial published in your issue of prcbruary 4th entlluxi worth trial and advocating the inauguration in acton of system of discounting prepaid taxes and issuing tax certificates on the ground that the municipality by giving discount of say would thereby be enabled to bavo large part of the interest liow paid to live bank upon borrowed funds while it la true tliat at present the rate of interest paid to the bank is it must be remembered that it is per annum and that we pay interest at this rate only on the amounts actually borrowed and for the tune during which such sums so borrowed ore retained wp commence to borrow fom the bank immediately after the new year and continue to borrow such sums as they arc from time to umo required until about september 1st when our taxes commence to coma in some of the funds so borrowed arc repaid in october wlien large part of tlic first instal ment of taxefi has been paid and the balance hi november or december when the second instalment of taxes arc available it will therefore be seen that tlic money which we at present borrow from the bank is held for period considerably less than the full year and tliat therefore the rate of in terest which we actually pay is less than vor wavmplc in year x93g wo borrowed from the bank of montreal for current expenditures 2350000 wo paid in interest 72779 which on the 2250000 to borrowed amounts to rate of less than 3lii this applies to the year 1036 in which from janu ary 1st to june 1st we paid 5u and from june 1st to the end of the year in 1037 the rat paid to the bunk will be 5o per annum all through so tiat the actual rale tills year should be even less tlian 3j again while under the present sys tem we borrow from the bank only the amounts which we actually require if tlie discounting system were put into effect and majority of cltleens took advantage of it we might liave to pay discount on sum much larger tlian tlie amount now borrowed and which might more tlian offset the slightly louer rate of the discount the total amount of taxes levied in each year around 4100000 then there is the other consideration referred to briefly at the end of the editorial namely tliat the advocated cliaiige would involve the necessity of entirely changing and readjusting our present system of assessment and uik collection including the addition of much book keeping etc which might necessitate the rearrangement and changing of the personnel of the pre sent staff of municipal officers it must also be remembered tliat the two municipalities mentioned in the editorial aj having adopted the dis counting stem althsuccesif namely burlington and qarric each liave larger population than has acton bur ling ton understand having about three timer and barrie four times as many people these municipalities would have larger staff of officers and officials who give their whole time to municipal affairs are paid larger salaries in proportion and are therefore better able to put into operation systems which might be difficult for smaller municipalities to maintain in my opinion all or these point be carefully considered before any definite attempt to inaugurate the proposed system here should be made rhanking you for your courtesy am yours truly farmer cleric and treasurer

discouraging it was not very long until the project dwindled and being of the opinion tlmt certain poultry meal would be good thing for other people to use he went on the road as salesman for such but

foimed in early 1085 when he was engaged with lambert and son of acton in the framing of the big barn for mr joel leslie erin now the home of mr pearen tile writer was one of the hands on the farm and the getting out of the timber for the six bents or that goxoo foot building out of his own beech and maple woods was big affair that winter uas when the salvation army took hold in acton and can remember archies sympathetic reports of steve marshall then clerk in an acton store becom ing one of the armys trophies it need scarcely ue said that steve became one of the armys mighty men in its evangeliing work when the timbers were all framed the great day of as sembling and raisin came over hundred farmers being assembled sides were chosen by think swackhamer and ii ryder and the lifting of the ib foot high finfoot widths begun it wils heavy work and especially so on the east for the men had to lift from the ground making the pole reach longer the writer happened to be stationed near

adult population of canada it is estimated that about 30 per cent of persons from 18 to 40 years are not fit for heavy work because of largely preventable causes it li further estimated that about co per cent of canadas population from 40 to go years are in need of care from controllable if not preventable dl canada can have health if it wishes to pay for it tliat has been proven by the effective results obtained in such programs as diphtheria lmmunlyatlon pasteurization of milk infant morkility reduction typhoid and tuberculosis contrcl there are means available in canada for the effective control and the even tual elimination of such diseases as cancer tuberculosis diphtheria typhoid if the people would only learn to use these means the main problem of health as it af fects canada ls the preservation of health and i2 the prevent of dis ease and ill health primarily this ls question of health education it ls question of steady persistent education of men and women ibojs and girl to the fact that most diseases can be prevented the public is longsuffering it is slow to anger how many more years uill by before canadians realize thirt they are being taxed heavily for hos pitals and mental charitable arganiza tions that are increasing in size and number beyond all proper proportions it is known and generally agreed that the pasteurization of milk will re move the chances of
