The "Outlook." published in New York, in one of its January numbers, contains an article from the pen ol DlTid Downie, a missionary for more than thirty-Ova years in India, with, as he says, exceptional opportunities of knowing the people and the Gov- ernment. The article has been writ- ten for the express purpose of con- tradicting statements that have ap- peared in American papers con- demnatory of British rule in India. In regard to these statements Mr. Downie writes: "I could say. with- out the slightest fear of contradic- tion, that there was not a single word ef truth in the statements." Mr. Downie refers to a paper pub- lished in New York, entitled "The Tragedy of which not only re- peats "fabulous" statements but adds to them a series which, he states, are Utterly untrue, and yet, he adds, "I am credibly informed beli.'ved by many otherwise intelligent people in America to be actual facts. One wond- where Americans get such false! traces the sources. ef misinformation, first, to the super- world tourists, who make a aWp and jump through India, speak with a few English-speaking Indians, Bet fed up with a lot of misinforma- tion, and then go home and POK as Authorities on things Indian. The second origin of misinformation Mr. Downie puts down to the' well- kaown desire of Indian university stu- dents for Government employment, and who malo the obtaining of this flu chief aim in seeking an education To get a Government position certain difficult examinations must be passed. A considerable portion of the appll cants faii. That, of course, brines dis- appointment. Of course, the fault, as they estimate it, is not theirs. The fault Is the Government's for demand- ing such stiff examinations. They will have revenge in doing all they ean to discredit the Government. The third source of misinformation Mr. Downie traces to the German propaganda. In spite of the Great War, ha observes, Germany is said still to hate her eye on India. To accomplish her purpose Britain must be discredit- ed m the eyes of the people of India. Not a difficult thing to do with a small bat persistently disloyal section o( the people. These false accusers of British rule, writes Mr. Downie, speak of "the in dependent India of two centuries ago." By a reference to history, he there was no independent Ipdia two centuries ago, nor at any other period. "Great remarks Mr. nownie, "did not invade India for the purpose el war and conquest as the Aryans and the Mohammedans did. The East India Company was established solely lor the purpose of trade. The and Portugese came for the sama pur- and atill have small provinces in the country. Misunderstandings 'among these companies and the native peoples led to war. Either by conces- sion or conquest the company's "sphere of influence" was extended till It became the dominant power." After giving a sketch of the pro- ken and form of British Government In India. Mr. Downie adds that it will be that Britain is carrying out the obligations as named by Queen Victoria, particularly in their applica- tion that "Our subjects, of whatever race or creed, be freely and tlally admitted to office in Our service, the duties of which they may lie qual- ified by their education, ability, and Integrity, duly to discharge." What Britain has done for India, writes Mr. Downie, would, if all told, fill a large book. la the first place she has stopped foreign in.va3 Ions, of which there has been an al- most uninterrupted succession since India was India, before it came under British rule. For putting a stop, he says, to these horrible invasions, In- dia owes a debt of gratitude to Brit- ain which can never repay. Sec- ondly, Britain has given to India a Government by which protection and elvll and political rights are secured to the people. She has established a Bplendid system of police and courts of justice, by which justice is secur- ed to all classes, irrespective of caste, creed or color. Thirdly, Britain has developed the country It never was before she came. She threaded the country with railways giul canals; established a magnllicent portal and telegraphic system; and has built large Irrigation to prevent LIFE AND ITS TIME time "Time on its wings flies swiftly by." "Art is long bui is fleeting." These are familiar lines, and it may be that in this veiy familiarity the lesson they instinctively teach and the warning they give pass unheeded. We speak of the brevity of life, and when compared to eternity thit. is true. But how few of us use the consciousness of this to the best advantage. On the other hand are we not too often inclined to shuffle off our responsibilities and to let opportunities pass us by with the consolation that after all life is too short to bother with this or that. Those who guide their action by the callous consider- ation of the space of time as allotted to man below fail to jrasp the true mission of life. Many an individual who has died at an carry age has accomplished what others have regarded to be impossible in the space of time they may reckon to be at their disposal. If we search our mem- ory or the pages of history there will be many names which we can recall whose bearers, in their short lives, have ren- dered considerable service to the cause of humanity. At any rate there is one inspiring experience in the life of our Lord, Who, in the short spell of thirty-odd years below, transformed the world, in the new beliefs He created and in the new principles of living He formulated, into a far better place to abide in than it was at and before His coming. Life is brief, and it may be that in the Divine Purpose this was so ordained to be to spur man to achievement, in the proper sensing that there is not much time for waiting on opportunity. It is in the full sensing of the brevity of life that great achievements have been accomplished. Those who so achieved had in them the spirit of now or never. Had it not been that to them the shortness of life was a consciousness, there would have been an inclination to rely on the fatality of postponement, in the thought that there is "plenty of time." Life furnishes opportunity. The opportunity cannot be dallied with, in that life is brief. The very conscious- ness of Anabaptists.

It was decided to again have a printed report of the year's work just completed and same will be in the hands of the members in due time. F. W. West and D. M.

The caterpillar engine and graders of the Argylo municipality have been having a thorough overhauling. The work has been done by Mr. J. B. Boyle and J. B. Whinnery, of Granum. The work on the engine was completed this week and the graders are expected to be finished by Monday. The work has taken about two months and same is now guaranteed to he in first-class condition and as good as a new out- fit. Mr. Boyle informed the Argyle council that same should run for a number of yeara if given proper care in handling of same without any furth- er repairs needed.
