On Blaster Sunday evening the Community Choir rendered the sacred cantata Crucifixion and Ascension. Tho
choir Is to he complimented on the
splendid lip Us ffretatlion of this con-
tata which would tax the powers of
a much larger one. Throughout thc
whole work the choir showed an appreciation of the passages and of tho
Hlgnlfitnce oil the message In thc cantata.
The cantata starts with tho words
"God ho loved the world," tells tho
story of the trial, condemnation,
crucifixion, and insurrection of Jesus
Christ, and finishes in a glorious
climnx with the words "Blessing and
honour, glory and lmwcr, he unto Him
thnt   sltteth   on   thc   throne.*'
Tho mutfli: well expresses these
scenes In the yearning harmony of
the opening chorus, the clamoring
fortissimo passages In the trial scene
the lament of the crucifixion, and tlu
Joyfulness of the resurrection and as-
oemtfon. u The solo partis were rendered toy Mrs. F, Beasluy, Mrs. E.
Whlttaker, Mr. V. Kuhn nnd Rev. 0.
Turplin. i The accompaniment was
played bjj Mm A. Mahy at the piano
and Mlsa Archibald at the organ.
Rev. J. Dewar gave the readings in
the   cantata.
Great Interest waa taken In this
service, The Presbyter4.an church,
where the service was held, was filled
at 7:30 and extra chairs had to be
carried in to acoommmodate the crowd
At the close of the cantata the
audience sat as though reluctant to
leave, which fact was a tribute to
the choir and Its effort. Capt. Logan
In moving a vote of appreciation, de-
olaerd that this was the "Outstanding
musical event in the history of Agassli."
Another of the series of '„'»tp*!t

Do Not Use Harsh Purgatives—A
Tonic is All You Need
Nol sick—bin noi feeling quite well.
That is the way most people leel in
the spring. Easily tired, appetite
fickle, sometimes headaches aud a
reeling ol depression. Pimples or
eruptions may appear on the skin, or
there may be twinges of rheumatism
or neuralgia. Any ol these indicate
that the blood is out of order—thai
the indoor life of winter has lefl its
mark upon you and may easily develop into more serious trouble.
Do noi dose yourself with purgatives, as many people do, in the hope
Ihal you can put your blood right.
Purgatives gallop through the system
and weaken instead of giving strength.
Any doctor will toll you that this Is
true, What you need in the spring is
a Ionic that will enrich Hie blood and
build up the nerves. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills do this speedily, safely and
sure!;. Every dose of this medicine
helps to enrich Ihe blood, which clears
lhe skin, strengthens the appetite and
makes tired, depressed men, women
aud children bright, active and strong.

"Nerves in Bad State
Could Not Sleep"
Mr*. H. N. Tardell, Harrowsmith, Ont, write*:
"My nerves were in a very bad slate, and for nearly six months
I did not know what it was to have a good night's rest. 1 could
not cat, and never felt well. 1 heard about Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
and thought I would try it. After'
taking it for a few days I began
to feel better, and soon was able
to sleep well at night. My appetite also returned, and I felt
stronger and better, and after
taking three boxes of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food I was quite well. I
have also given the Nerve Food
to my little girl, with good results."

Development Of Pulpwood
Industry Unequalled In The
History Or Our Commerce
Development of some of the natural resources of Canada lias within tlie
two decades of Ihe present century
established records which are almost
phenomenal, says Ihe Natural Resources Intelligence Service of Iho
Department of the interior. The fertile lands of the prairies, owing to
their outstanding importance as the
source of the enormous grain crops
which Ihey have produced, have overshadowed all other development,
The prairies, however, are not Iho
only natural resources In Canada thai
has come Into Its own on an Impos
Ing scale within very recent yours.
The older provinces of tho east have
witnessed the rise of an Industrial pro
dlgy that rivals even tho record of
western progress. The spread ot
commercial value over millions of
acres of western farm lands Is almost
matched by tho commercial romance
ol tho inilpwood forests of Eastern
Canada and British Columbia. For
sheer rapidity of development Ihere is
nothing in Canadlatl experience—excepting only the advance ot the farming frontier of Ihe prairies—to equal
Ihe speed and abruptness with which
the Dominion's Immense pulpwood
areas have been converted from idle
inlo active assets that today rank
among the. very foremost producing
properties of the country.
From earliest times the forests of
Eastern Canada have played a leading
role in building up commercial enterprise. The sawmill has founded more
Canadian communities and fortunes
than almost any other form of industry. More than fifty years ago, when
the several provinces were united by
confederation, the new Dominion was
known to other countries and continued lor years to bc known mainly as
a source of lumber. And sawmill
products have remained down to the
present day as one of the chief classes
of goods carrying Canadian trade inlo
nil quarters of the globe.
But after the long record of decades
and even centuries of broadening development, It has been left to the last
ten or fifteen years to witness an utterly astonishing growth of forest industries. Tlie pulp nnd paper mill
has usurped the prestige of the sawmill. Lumbering still stands as one
of the major pillars of Canadian industries, but in an amazingly short
period it has seen tho rise of a gigantic upstart which In some respects already overshadows it.
The sudden, almost magic diffusion
of commercial value and activity over
Canada's millions of acres of pulpwood forests is a striking example of
how the needs of one country develop
the resources of another. The motive power behind the development of
Canada's pulpwood areas Is tho voracious American market lor paper,
particularly "for newsprint. Tho
manufacture of newsprint Is the big
end of the Canadian paper industry
and over SO per cent, of tho newsprint
produced Is exported to the United
Only ten years ago American mills
were able to moot all bul a small percentage of tho domesiic requirements
but in tlie meantime the output has
been steadily falling behind consump-
Beware of Imitations!
Hon. The Use of newsprint lias increased tremendously. On the other
hand lhe depletion of the pulpwood
hllpplies of Hie eastern and lake
States lias permitted only a moderate
increase of American output.' Faced
witli this situation American newsprint consumers are now compelled to
Import almost half of their require-
men I s.
Canada has Btepped tuto\the breach.
Her oxporls of newspriiil alone have
risen from less lhan four million dollars In 11)12 io over eighty-million dollars in 1923. Thus the Dominion's
pulpwood resources, after suffering a
long period of commercial indifference
and cosily exposure lo every form ol
inroad excopl thut of Industrial need,
have suddenly been drawn into use on
u scale and wllh a degree of iivii.il y
rarely equalled in the initials of world
commerce. Seldom Indeed has the

established Fort Rouge. The
Northwest Company, sixty years
later, established Fort" Gibraltar,
anil a few years later Fort Douglas, named nfter Thomas Douglas, thc fifth Ear! of Selkirk, was
constructed by the Hudson's Tiny
Company. Many stories are told
of conflicts between thc servants
of the Hudson's Bay and North-
West Companies, but the feuds terminated with the amalgamation of
the two companies in 1821, and the
first Fort Garry was erected as a
trading post and   settlers' depot.
This was an club.irate structure
with stono walls, Lustions and portholes.
On 1S31 thc building of Lower
Fort Garry, 19 miles down the
river was commenced. This wns for
a time the residence of the Governor of Rupert's Land and the
seat of government. In 1835 Upper Fort Garry was begun at the
junction of the two rivers and this
wns the centre of business, government, education nnd public affairs for more than 30 years, and
was the nucleus of tho present city
of Winnipeg.
The Fort was sold in 1882 and

As In- reclined in front of the opening of tht' tent, she was conscious
that ho had, at least, a partial view ol'
her movements. Aware of this her
intuition warned her against injudicious moves thai would in any way
betray her motives, or arouse his suspicions iis to her intentions. She accordingly weni calmly about, and

in such a position as lo command a

Mother Tells How Her Daughter
Suffered and Was Made Well by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Vancouver, B.C.—" My daughter Is a I
young girl who has boon having severe
pains and wonli and dizzy reelings for j
pome time ami had lost hot appetite.
Through an older daughter who bad
heard of a woman who was taking it
lor iho same trouble, wo were told of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Corn-
pound, My daughter has boon tailing it
for several' months and is quite all rinlit
now. It lias done all it was represented
to do and we have told a number of
friends about, it. 1 am never without
i; bottle of it in the house, for I myself
lake it lor that weak, tired, worn-out |
feeling which sometimes comes to us nil.
I find it is building mo up nnd I strongly
recommend it to women who urc suffering as I and my daughter have. "—Mrs,
,i. McDonald, 21117 2tith Ave. Bust,
Vancouver, B. C.
From the age of twelve a girl needs all
the care a thoughtful mother cun give.
Many a womnn has suffered years of
I am and misery—the victim of thoughtlessness or ignorance of the mother who
should have guided her during this time.
1 f she complains of headaches, pains

notice a slowness of thought, nervousness or irritability on thoT>art of your
daughter, make life easier for her.

conditions. 0

lay a few feel beyond her reach. Like
a tiger gathering for the spring on
his intended prey, gradually, and with
iln.. noiseless motions of a serpent, her
form commenced to creep closer and
closer lo ihe Bleeping guard. A fool,
Iwo feel closer she crept, when, as if
subconsciously aware of approaching
danger, her itnended victim suddenly
awakened and sat upright. Afler
taking a look around Die camping
ground, he peered Inlo her tent, but
noticing her lying still and breathlhg
heavily, as il In deep Bleep, hi' seemed satisfied, and resumed his former
reclining position on thi' saddle.
Startled thus from her Intended
course, at Ihe moment when escape
seemed lo be wilhln h<»r reach, the
discomfited girl lay motionless In the
position she assumed at the sudden
awakening of her guard. Disappoint
and discouraged, she lay for what
seemed lo her an hour, when her attention was again attracted by Ihe
deep breathing outside her lent.
Could it. be that assured that no danger threatened him, In* again succumbed to lhe demands ol sleep? she
was not left lone, In doubt, Jin occasional snore assured her Ihal. her time
had come.
Again her muscles tensed and she
began to slowly creep. Before her
lay her captor in sonnd sleep. Foot
by fool, closer and closer, she crept.
In ihe opening of Ihe lent she now
lay; only a few feet Intervened. Slowly anil silently she gathered herself
for Ihe spring that would laud her
into eternity or In safety, tin hands
and knees she rose; then slowly aris-
Ing to a posture of attack with the
righl band uplifted for the blow, she
was prepared for the final spring,
when, as if sensing new danger, she
glanced over her left shoulder, and
was petrified into inaction hy a vision
of ihe grayish shadowy form of a
horse, fully saddled, not more lhan
twenty feet away. Behind lhe horse,
as he was grazing on lhe mass at bis
feel, she distinguished In ihe gloom
of nlghl lhe partially covered form of
a man, in whose hand she noticed the
glint of a revolver pointing in her
direction. Hope of escape thus suddenly snatched from within bet' reach,
she slowly collapsed and awaited in
silent and hopeless submission the
outcome of Ibis new danger that
threatened her.
Daylight-was dawning when lhe two
men. Fraser and Ronald, finally located the trail of the outlaws who were
beading tor tlie soulh. Following
tills trail back some distance they
soon came to the starling point, where
the bandits had made Ihelr camp during I lie previous day. and, where the
young1 woman was captured. They
hunted around fo find some trace of
her, bul. were unsuccessful in even
finding anything in the nature of a
clue. Small boot tracks were, however, discovered in the bluff. These,
her lalher thought, might be her
Hacks, judging from his recollection
of the boots she wore. Holh men
were now, however, convinced that
lhe bandits had laken her prisoner,
and were Inking her along with llieni.
Whlinut making further search in tlie
vicinity, Ihey started south, followed lhe tracks left In lhe grass by their
band of horses. In this way Ihey had
no difficulty. From the nature and
number of horse I racks left In Ihelr
trail, Ihey judged thai Ihere musl
have been more than a dozen horses
In their band.
Satisfied with their JInvestigations
they spurred their horses lo a lope,
which Ihey kept, up as far as Ihe face
hills, where Ihey slowed down to a
walk as Ihey descended lhe sleep decline to lhe level prairie. No word
was spoken by ell her of the men as
Ihey proceeded on their way. In
silence eacil weighed lhe serious nature nf Ihelr mission, as Ihey consld
ered ihe desperate character of the
mil laws In whose trail Ihey were following. Men, who would add to 1 lie
crime of "horse rustling," lhe more
serious crime of kidnapping, were
likely to prove dangerous antagonists
In a probable armed encounter. They
were serious men starling on a serious business, a business thai was surrounded by dangers lhat mlghl end
In final eipisoiiuciiiTS lo one or both
of I In 111.
They did noi for a moment consider
the danger, The) look no ihought of
11n- risks they were Inking. The
crowning thoughts in both their minds
wen-, ihal ihe daughter of the oldor
mini was imld captive by u dangerous
band of criminals, and over her head
was hanging n tale Ihal was lo them
more serldUS than deaill Itself. They
counted not the cost, nor weighed tin
dangers lhat Ihey themselves wore
running Inlo. The purpose and
thought that, obsessed them was lo
rescue at any risk the woman who was
held cnpllve, With set faces, expressive of grim determination, ihey
again seI spurs to Ihelr horses and set
iiff al a sllff cantor, following lhe
fresh trail left by lhe bandits In the
lull grass.
As Ihe horses cantered Hills across
the Moose Mountain trull, the older
man In lhe lead, llo'iald, with eyes
kept glued lo the frail, on the lookout
for 'further 'ranks, was rewarded by
noticing the dim outline of what appeared lo liini lo be a rolled up piece
of paper. He suddenly checked up
his horse, and, coming hack, dismounted and picked up the message
lhat was dropped by Ihe foresight of
lhe young woman. At first, seeing
nothing unusual about the missive, he
was about lo discard the small pleco
of birch bark, when he noticed the
message scribbled within Its rounded
fold. After hurriedly glancing over
the message he shouted to his companion, who was by now some dlslance
ahead. Quickly mounting Ronald
rode down to where lie had slopped.
Fagerly  showing  Ih"  missive  lo  the
father, he read the message to him,
which ran as follows:

H.M.S. Lion's Fate
Must Beatty's Famous Flagship
Become Only "Scrap Iron?"
The Admiralty announcement that,
owing to the terms of the Washington
agreement, it Is not possible to avoid
scrapping the famous bailie cruiser
Lion, has caused regret in naval circles, where it was hoped that the life
of Beatty's flagship might be prolonged for a few more years.
It lias been urged In many quarters
that the vessel should be preserved as
a national war relic.
The vessel has been sold to a firm
of shlpbreakers for £77,000, and It Is
yet uncertain where she will be broken up.
The Lion, which mounted eight 13.5-
Inch guns nnd had engines of 70,000
horsepower, took a conspicuous part
In the battle of Dogger Bunk—the first
encounter between super-Dreadnoughts—and In the Jutland battle,
during which 99 oflieers and men were
In the latter light the vessel was
on fire, but Major Harvey, who had
both legs shot off, saved the ship by
ordering the magazines to be flooded
—gallantry which was rewarded after
his death by the V.C.

Mr. J, J. Graner, of Eburne, visited
the Agassiz Experimental Farm last
week and succeoded In purchasing 10
females of excellent bleeding to star!
a new herd with. He is anticipating
building a new barn on his farm at
Eburne and has selected an excellent
foundation of fully accredited females
Only one mature cow was purchaser],
she being due to freshen early in May.
She is sired by Inka Sylvia, Beets
Posch, and from Lady Lyons Faforit,
tho dam of the late World's Champion

heifers are sired by Maplecrcst Dc-
Kol, Henry, a .hull that has left some
excellent show stock as well as producers In the Agasssiz Experimental
Farm herd. Two of the heifers were
loo young to breed, while six of them
nro In calf to Sir Canary Peltje, thc
only son of Ludy Pietje Canary's
Jewel, a cow bred by Mr. J. M. Steves

tho best record of nny cow In Canada as a Junior three-year-old. The
two other females purchased are In
calf to Moplccrest De Kol Henry. On
tho dam's side most of thc heifers
trace to two foundation cows purchased) lu 1912 from Mr. J. M. Steves,
those being the Aurora nnd Lena
