Oct. 21-26. K. E. FaylHci baa been chosen sup-eftetendent to.Ha* work of the Congress during' the'fast few years is being felt in �te Inland Empire, where there are over 42 cities that have strong .commercial clubs. Recently there has been termed 'what is known as Federation of commercial clubs, all of whom are now pulling for the next meeting of the Congress, at Lethbridge. "Twenty-two hundred and fifty dollars have, been hung up in' prizes at the Spokane Interstate Fair for coun ty ami district exhibits under the direction-, of: the. federatSil clubs of the Inland Empire, the object being to make dry-farming exhibits at the�In-: terstate Fair and the best of these to be taken to Lethbridge for exhibition at the coming exposition. Upper Columbia Boosting "One county in the Upper Columbia district, that has an organization of federated clubs within its county hold ing a membership of over 500, will boost for the dry farming exhibits, and the show at Lethbridge. �"Liberal prizes have been hung up for exhibits at county fairs covering a wide range of products showing what can be done where proper dry farming methods are followed. "The Spokane Chamber of Commerce is realizing the value of the Congress and is making every effort possible to-see that the Inland Empire is properly represented at'Lethbridge. Last year the yield.of wheat alone in the Pacific Northwest amounted to approximately 76,0OO$0O bushels, the bulk of which came f*om the dry-farming districts and it is. but fair to iay that the yield was made possible in no small measure through,, following the teachings of dry-fanning experts. "The outlook for a wheat yield this year is better than last and our farmers in the Pacific Northwest are putting into practice better methods for conserving moisture in the dry-farming regions, due largely to the improved methods that have been brought forth through the efforts of the Dry-Farming Congress, which is widespread in its influence."

J., June 3.-Ushered into being with a sermon for left-handed people, the Excellent Order of the Knights and Ladies of Ehud was established at Orange, through the efforts of Rev. Dr. William A..' Frye pastor of the Orange . Methodist church. Certificates of membership were given by the minister, who had assembled the "southpaws" at his church with the special object of raising them out of their slough 6T despond arid making them believe that to be left-handed was to be distinguished rather than blighted. A hymn composed by Dr. Frye and his prayer "that the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man may come swiftly, to the world," were im pressive incidents of the service. The church was filled, Never before in the history of this community were so many left-handed persons brought together. Dr. Frye^qf couTse, Is lef>t-handed.., Il/ts text was: "But when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord, the Lord raised them up a deliverer, Ehud, the son of Gora, a Benjamite, a man" left-handed." Judges lit., 15. King Eglon's Fate Right at the start, the minister pointed out, Ejhud showed his'originality and resourcefulness by making his left-handedness useful in delivering the people from bondage. He.'-was sent to bear the tribute to the King Eglon. Being left-handed, he had his sword on his right side, where it fall ed to excite suspicion. While he was giving Eglon his hand-his right band as others were accustomed; to dd-with his left hand he .plunged the blade,into the king. Then his followers were free. "Of course, the left-handed man departs from tha�usual methods,". said Dr. Frye. "So must every reformer inventor, discoverer, or champion of any progressive steps in society, gov eminent, or church: The left-handed man is a constant argument" for ad vancement and lawful departure from ruts and commonplace things. This man Ehud dared to be himself. Ho had no precedent. He is a shining example of what can be done by methods not used by'others.' . ' "Ehud was considered peculiar because he was left-handed. God's people from generations remote have been called a peculiar people. "Left-handed as a term will stand for most of the reforms and redemptive processes of the world. I invite every person who uses the left hand to accept the honors, of knighthood in the Excellent Order of the Knights and Ladies of Ehud. ...

Motto and Sign "It's motto is, 'No more punishment for the lefthanded'; sign of recognition, shake with the left hand; obligations, '1 will always live on the sunny side and never �dishonor my willing hand, but ever extend it to ,help a brother man.' " Taking- up the theme of the hardships of the left-handed man, Dr. Frye declared a lefthanded man is no more responsible for being left:handed than he is for being red-headed. Both are respectable. , ^ * "The man left-handed is under 'a handicap of custom and definition. Custom embarrasses him and puts him in the limbo of severe discipline. The dictionary makes him out a worthless, clumsy, unskilful tyro. The drama takes a fall out of him. "Histo asked: 'What kind of man?' "Psio answered: 'That thou mayst know him perfectly, be is one of a left-handed making, a lank, , lean thing.' " � i "These allegations are as false as they are malicious. It can. be clearly shown that some of the finest work of brush or pen lias issued from the left hand.- The world has made the lafl.-handed man stand for the opposition. The Ten Commandments must be listed with him for they are on the left. "Many people have looked up to the left hand as a deformity rather than the expression of genius. 1 have a recent letter from a prominent woman who says that when she was a child her left arm was strapped to her side up to her shoulder 'to cure her.' Deplores Savagery "We are horrilied at Chinese foot-binding, but show the savage in us by punishing both mentally and physically the left-handed child. 1 was brought out before' the entire school once and compelled to hold out my loft hand, palm up, while a heavy ' male teacher pounded it with a ferule. While some of these severe measures at 'reform' have passed, yet the prejudice stilt lingers. Why try; to stifle the willing hand of skill; prfe-cision. courage, justice, loyalty aud religion?" �Dr. Frye, who looks like Tom Reed ��4' looked, has diew�vei'ed some remark- able things about those whose hand is the more willing. 1'Most great geniuses, though not all," he says, "are left-handed, though perhaps I should say instead that left-handed people are geniuses. There is a real reason -for its The reason people are right-handed is that the left side of the head, the left lobe of the brain, is more developed. There is a distinct advantage in having the right side, the right.lobe of the brain, rnore developed. If the side is the more developed you are leftThanded. Left-handed people are rlght-bralne
