THIS YEAR'S SPORTS
(Brief Note by Mr. Arnold Webster
B.A.)
Thin year a new departure hits
been' made in summer sport. Four
loams are playing in a local league.
Such efforts should be encouraged,
unci even next year, when Agassiz
will probably be in a position again
to cuter ti Fraser Valley League, ii
would be wise to continue the smeller organization nt home.
Thc most evident weakness in
modern sport is that there arc usually too many spectators and too
few participants. In the real sense,
thc physical and moral benefits of
engaging in a co-operative game arc
apparent only to the player. For
this reason we should discourage the
apparent tendency to select a few
who excel to perforin for tho entertainment of the larger group. It is
worth sacrificing the standard of
play in order to permit as many as
possible to share thc advantages of
active participation in sport. This
is one Instance where quantity is
moro desirable than quality. Our
slogan should be "Out of the grandstand onto the licld."

A NEAR ACCIDENT
Passengers on a large five-passenger touring car from Vancouver
.lust escaped death on the way to
the ferry Saturday last. In trying
to make up time they turned at the
wrong angle and ran into the corner
of Canoe Bridge, a cross-piece held
and just saved them, but the car was
badly damaged.
TIMBER INDUSTRY ADVANCING
According to figures given out
by Hon, T. D. Pattullo, Minister of
Lands, the Timber Industry is
steadily advancing in this Province.
For the first six months of 1924
there was an increase of IB per
cent, in the amount of tinjber scaled
over the total for the "corresponding
period last year. The total for the
half year ending June 30 was over
1,300,000,000  board feet.

"Nol much to offer as a guest room,
bul our one best tii-t." he apologized,
"III confess lankly that there isn't a

Hut I think I can guarantee a sound
sleep for both of vou. I'll promise
there'll bo no breakfast alarm In the
morning, but the makings of a meal

Protest unexpected came from mild
bring about disclosure, once the
whites ln Armistice were pledged to
keep It from her. She might know
him only as another unfortunate, mis
guided Eskimo slayer, a handcuff
brother to Olespe of lhe Lady Franklin band, then in the guard room.
"But Mrs. Morrow?" The thoughl
came suddenly to Seymour that the
woman missionary spoke somo Eski-
jno. "She'll hear of It from lhe natives."
Luke Morrow smiled; they did not
know of the iron which was In the
make-up of his little blond wife as he
did.
"Sho ls a good woman, so merciful
I wlll pray tills out Willi her ln the
morning."
For a time, gloomy silence held tho
group around the fireplace. Suddenly Karmack leaned over and grasped
Morrow almost roughly by the shoulder.
"Parson, do you know why that girl
left  her lather and  the comparative
mannered Mrs. Morrow.     "But we're

noil of her blond head, she indicated
an exlra uniform which dangled from
a hook against the wall, tell-tale staff

"A dreadful llilng to do," added
Molrn. "And on your first night
home after your long patrol!"
That portion of Seymour's face that
was not bearded look color from the
tunic lhat had betrayed him. "And
I thought I'd removed nil Irace of tho
former occupant. Must be gelling
color blind.". lie carried the jacket
Into the living rcoin. "Don't worry
about your reverend, Mrs. Morrow';
he'll bunk as snur as a bug out here
with La Marr and mc," he called back.
There was a chorus of good-nights;
then the men sillied to their pipes
before the fireplace. After a reasonable wait In silence, Seymour lower-i
ed his voice and communicated to
Luke Morrow the news of the tragedy.
Without reservation, the missionary
npproved their course of keeping it
from Moira until after lhe necessary
legal formalities had been carried out.
Then, he said, he would take charge
with a religious reverence that might
lighten the blow.
"She's a wonderful woman, Moira
O'Malley," he Paid wllh deep feeling.
"She endeared herself tn everyone
who mel her over at Wolf Luke. Utterly wrapped up In her brother, this will
be a terrible blow.     I wonder If "
He hesitated.     "Would It be udiniss
bleak Armistice with her brother
The trader's demand scarcely could
have been more vehement had he personally resented Molra's coming. "I
know that he did not expect her.
What's more, he never even spoke of
having n sister."
Tbe missionary's calm was perfect
"She had no way ol letting him
know that she was coming to spend
lhe winter with him, once the wireless
she senl to Edmonton failed to reach
Wolf Lake," ho replied. "She came
through herself by team In lhe first
storm of. winter. We had great difficulty In keeping her with us until wc
ourselves were ready to make lho trip
across country. She'd have cohie
through with an Indian dog driver If
we had not protested so stoutly."
"All that to sec a brother, eh?"
snorted Karmack. "Are you certain
she is his slater?'
Seymour sprang to his feet,, an angry gllller In his tray eyes. "Enough
of lhat, Karmack! Express another
such doubt and out you go—for good."
For a moment, a snarling expression
strove to muster the trader's face. The
missionary poured oil.
"I'm sure Mr. Karmack meant nothing wrong. He's Just a bit upset by
all these happenings."
"Upset? Hear eyes, yes—I'll say
I'm upset." The factor made a
quirk grasp for peace, for Iho ser-
want    looked    dangerous.       "All

"Hy gar! 11 absolutely would!"
Kalmuck vociferated.
Seymour's Quick wit worked out a
solution. "An accldenl of the Arctic
prairies. I'll trust having that one

"Any reason to believe Oliver O'Malley hnd n wife?" Seymour remained
stern.
"None In the world. But a sister—
To make a trip like that, she must
have had some very pressing reason."
Again his eyes qu stloned the parson.
"If there existed nny other than sisterly affection," said Morrow evenly,
"she did not' express tt to me." Ills

Clumsily os Karmack had used his

tn ask about this when he and Morrow were alone, and he would have
put his question without giving offense.
Why bad one who deserved to be
the honored toast of tbe Dominion
rushed Into the Arctic wilds, evidently unasked, certainly unexpected, al a
time of year when 11. would be next to
impossible to send her back?
Wns there any connection between
her coming and what had occurred ro
recently In the F.sklnio hut? Had
she brought a warning of some sort
To this beloved brother and been lulled
Into thinking she mlghl delay for a
missionary escort and still be In time
to serve and save him?
Those rapld-nre speculations, unvoiced, seemed lo advise only negative
answers.     Yet why had sho come?
Constable La Marr, who had been
silent til evening to n point of moodiness, now snapped Seymour from his
thoughts wllh a question of his own.
"And when are you going (to turn
me loose after that accursed Avlc?"
he demanded ln a tone that was
scarcely subordinate.
The missionary looked up at his violence, but had no censure for the
speech of 11. These men who glvo
their lives lo lighten the Arctic native's sorry burdon grow accustomed
to Btrong language.
"At daybreak you wi'l lake the dogs,
mush over to Prospect, and subpoena
those three mining engineers wintering there to serve on corner's Jury.
Bring them back wllh you. Miss
O'Malley need know of only one inquest." He glanced with thoughtful
eyes toward the closed door of thc
Inner room.     "After that "
One look nl the young constable's
face must have told nny who saw It
that Avlc, the Eskimo, would need to
hide like a weasel to escape that arm
of the law.
OHAPTER V.
Silver and Black
l.a Mair was away nt dawn with a
venire facias for each of the three gold
explorers, the only competent Jurors
within reach. As It was a matter of
forty miles rough sledding lo lhe
prospectors' camp and return, the Inquests could scarcely be held before
the late afternoon. That the ghi whose
emotions they were conspiring to protect might bc too busy for vagrant suspicions, Sergeant Seymour suggested
to the Morrows that they open up
Mission House while he wus at liberty,
to help Ihem.
"Don't want to seem Inhospitable.
Mrs. Morrow," he said In his slowest,
most deferential manner, "and 'you
know you'll be welcome here as long
as you care lo slay, but I'm sure you
want to get Into your own place as
soon ns possible. Never know when
some Arctic hades lsgolngtocutloose
and take me out oa tho trail.- I'm off.
duty this morning—more lhan ready
lo help with the heavjf^work."
This brought an offer from Moira
O'Malley 'that struck the hearts of
those who knew.
"Our sergeant of tbe Dismounted is
positively brilliant this morning," she
said, confounding him utterly with
twin flashes of Irish blue. "Why, all
the time I attended school In Ottawa,
I saw no one more considerate. You
see. when Oliver gets back from this
inconsiderate mush ot his, I'll become
quite useless as your handmaiden,
Emma, with all the things a brother
will be needing done for him."
Mrs. Morrow had not been advised
of Ihe true situation, but she had her
own Ideas as to the proper habitat ln
an outland's camp for a girl like
Moira.
"Oh, you'll keep right on living at
Mission House as long as you're here,
my dear," she said. "The rhack of a
bachelor trader Is no place for so
dashing a belle."
"But I know Olle's quarters, whatever Ihey are, will need my sisterly
attentions," she protested, spreading
unconscious agony to the two men.
"His room at homo always was a
sight. A place for everything but nothing In Its place seemed to be that
Mick's motto.
As the two went on ahead to the
small dwelling that had been closed
since the previous spring thaw, Seymour found himself asking again why
she hnd come. Were sisters as devoted ns Ihal? As motherly. Never having had a sister, he was unable
to answer.
The pair stripped weather hoarding
from doors and windows, aired the
house thoroughly and carried In n
supply of wood from the shed. They
then closed 11 tight and built roar-
fires In every available stove to remove lhe winter chill. The native
hostler from Ihe post already had
shoveled paths through tho snow.
So far ns the two males could see,
but little inside cleaning would be
necessnry. But the women, on coming to the house presently, revised
thai verdict and fell to with broom and
mop.

ed to Karmack, for he arrived presently, his Interpreter drawing a toboggan loaded with provisions which were
presented to the missionaries with
compliments from the trading company. .The gift was gracious, the
supplies being of a sort not found In
the somewhat meager store of staples
provided by thc societies. They
were gratefully received.
Came then a second shock from
Moira, again an innocent one, ln the
form of coupled questions.
"But Mr. Karmack, have you locked
the store?" she asked first.
"Not much trade these wintry days
and If customers come, they'll stick
around like summer bull-dies." He
accomplished the only laugh of the
morning.
"But who ls there to tell Oliver,
when he comes back, tnat I've arrived
and am waiting?"
Harry Karnnck's freshly shaved,
usually ruddy face went as while as
the girl's natural pallor at this unexpected turn to his attempted whimsicality. He stagger back as If she had
struck him a blow. Seymour, standing near, steadied him Into a chair.
"That bad heart of yours again, old
lop?" the sergeant asked quietly.
No one ever had heard of anything
being the matter with Karmack's
heart, but the timely question served
to cover his emotion. Mrs. Morrow
noticed It, but did not wonder thereat.
Evidently Moira had lilt these sons of
Isolation hard, and there were ln prospect Interesting sessions, she thought,
for Mission House 11 .ing room thut
winter.
Seymour decided he hnd endured
enough agony for one morning and so,
on the plea nf police routine, started
for the post, but the thumbscrew of
misadventure wns to receive one more
turn. From the door of Mission
House the melodious voice of Moira
cnrrled to him.

Celebrated Unique Holiday
People Fittingly Observe "Name Day"
Of Slavic Alphabet
The Bulgarian people celebrated a
unique holiday on May 24 when
throughout tbe country was observed
the "name day" of the Slavic, or Oyrll-
lac, alphabet and of lis creators, the
monks Cyril and bis brother Methodius. It was in the ninth century nnd
from the city of Salonlca that these
holy men promulgated their alphabet
which was designed to propagate the
Christian faith among Slavic peoples.
One of the notable observances
took place at the Monastery of St. Ivan
of nila, ln the mountains above Samo-
kov, where the Bulgarian letters created by the apostles from Latin, Greek
and Hebrew material, were preserved
from extinction during tbe Turkish
domination of five centuries.
The celebration of the day Is also
marked by the Orthodox Church to recall the Introduction of Christianity
among the Bulgarian people, and lis
spread to the other Slavic peoples by
the followers of Sis. Cyril and Methodius.

extremely hard on little ones. Diarrhoea, dxsentry, colic and cholera infantum carry off thousands of precious
little lives every summer. The
mother must be constantly on her
guard to prevent these troubles or If
they come or. suddenly to fight them.
No olher medicine ls of such aid fo
mothers during the hot summer as is
Baby's Own Tablets. They_ regulate
the bowels and stomach, ami an occasional dose given to the well child
wlll prevent summer complaint, or If
the trouble does come on suddenly
will banish It. The Tnblets are sold
by medicine dealers or by mall nt 25
cents a box from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
Thc Unmans regarded salt as a
sacred article of food, hence no olher
dish was allowed to be placed upon
the table before the salt was in position.

Headaches    and     Backaches     Often
Make Life Miserable
A woman's health handicaps her almost always.     She has pains und disabilities   which   do   not afflict men.
Naiure does nol give her a fair chance.
Her blood ls more often thin and poor
than a man's, and she often neglects
lhe first beginnings of ill-health. Many
women who seemed destined lo a life
| of frequent suffering have been freed
I entirely from Ihelr suffering through
i the wonderful blood-raaklug qualities
I of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.     Many a
I woman tolls all day with a pain In her
back  and side, a  burning  headache,
and a sense of having no spine left.
What a pity women will not listen
to their friends whom Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have saved from their misery. Whenever a woman suffers they
will help her—In youth, middle-age
and after-life. Mrs. John Mitchell, of
Mlddleville, Ont., gives her experience
for the benefit of other women sufferers. She says:—"Some years ago
I was so badly run-down I could hardly walk around lha house. I tried to
do a few chores hut was able to do
very little. My boys and husband
had to do the rest. If I started upstairs I ha'! to go very slow or I
would fall, and I was just played out
when I got at tho top of thc stairs. My
head ached terribly, and my heart
would beat violently. In this deplorable condition I be'gan taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. When I hatranlsh-
eel nl.x boxes I felt much better, Then
I gol a further supply, and by lho
time I had taken these I could walk
anywhere without being exhausted,
the headaches had disappeared and I
am now 'perfectly well. Any woman
who Is rundown should not. hesitate
lo begin Dr. Williams' Pink Pills at
once, as I am sure from my own experience they will build her up."
You can get these Pills from any

The Ruling Passion
Woman Have An Inalienable Right To
Have Their Hair Bobbed
People look with horror on the tales
of early colonial days, when men and
women were put to death for witchcraft. They express thanks that the
country has progressed beyond the
thhe when a code of laws was printed
In a blue-covered pamphlet and became known as blue laws. These
laws provided penalties for many
things lhat now seem trivial, but occasionally lhe link between the past
and the present ls forged anew. An
old Connecticut law made It criminal
for a mother to kiss her Infant on the
Sabbath Day. Sanitary laws now Bay
It Is criminal for an/body lo kiss
babies on nny day. Another Connecticut statute provided that "every male
shall have his hair cut round according lo a cap." There Is not much difference ln spirit between* this and a
ruling of the Wabash county township trustees that no woman will be
employed as a teacher If she has
bobbed hair. From Pennsylvania
comes a dispatch lhat all the teachers
ln one/town have had an Increase in
salary''of $100 a year, except those
who have short hair. They are not to
be permuted to have higher salaries
unless they let their hair grow. It
might be logical lo assume that the
teacher wllh short hair spends less
time on it, and has more lime In which
lo prepare lessons for her pupils. If
It is fair for school authorities to regu
late the manner lu which women wear
their hair, they might regulate men's
habit3 and fashions. Whiskers formerly seemed to be considered as an
evidence of learning, but Ihey mean
no more now than a second lleutcn
ant's moustache, if women wish to
have their hair cut, evidently that Is

reading: 'All stations. Dlgby noon,

"Calculations of these positions
made ships 130 miles apart. After
consulting with the ship's surgeon due

Dlgby and at 4 p.m. she was sighted
nearly ahead. At 4.37 p.m. her boat
was alongside and ln an hermetically
sealed case tho medicine was transferred at once. The vessels proceeded on their voyages after tho exchange
of greetings. From the reduction of
speed on approaching the Dlgby lifeboat until the engines'of the Empress

W.   N.   U.   1B3S WM.F. TOLLADAY
Former Pr»ss Employee
Meets fudden Death
Saturday night saw a sad tragedy
to the auto ride from Vancouver to
Haney of Mr. W. Wesley Tolladay,
who was to be the week-end guest
of Mr. and Mrs. S. H. Samuels, of
Port Haney. The Overland car owned and driven by Mr. Samuels, after
crossing the Pitt River traffic bridge,
in some way skidding, toppled into
the ditch at the side of the road.
Mrs. Samuels was riding or. the back
seat, but in the upset was thrown
forward : Mr, Samuels -war, partly
thrown forward through the windshield and his head pined under a
seat. Mr. Tolladay seems tohave died
where he sat of heart failure on the
car's displacement.
But thc sad event hns already
been told at length in the City Dai-
ies, as nlso an account of the inquest. Enough on the latter score to
note that the Jury found no one to
blame the whole being set down as
an accident.
It is with profound regret thnt we
learn of Mr. Tolladay's sudden demise as he was a most respected
member for months in 1921 of our
staff, und on the Haney Herald tak
ing establishment he for some time
joined service there.
Wesley, as he preferred to be
called, was a great favorite, and one
of the most honorable of men. Ho
■was at once fritndly, devoted and
capable ; a consistent church-goer,
and, in fine, a "man among men."
His word was as good as his bond."
He wns coming up to arrange some
details of business with us as well
as spending the week-end with Mr,
and Mrs. Samuels when the fatality
occurred. And now, alas, he Is be
yond the pale of all business concern. His few remaining relatives
in Great London will learn the harrowing news , but can r milor no
help. The management and si'iff
of both local papers deplore the
loss of a trusted and trusting em-
ployee and of very faithful friend,
who now rests in the Silent City.
WHAT OF THE HOSPITAL
PROJECT ?
Some time ago action was started
re securing a public hospital for the
municipality. Have the committee
forgotten the project entirely ? It
was understood at the time that
when the summer activities were
well under way the matter would
have the consideration of the citizens. Why not now ? There is
surely no less need than when the
question was mooted last winter.
May we not have consideration in
the near future ?
WHO IS THE NORTH AMERICAN
INDIAN ?
This great question may well
have the serious consideration of
all thoughtful readers. Fortunately for all such, we have from the
pen of an able writer o poem of
considerable length which is at once
thoughtful and instructive, and will
appear in our next issue.

The resources of the British Empire are the subject of world discussion at present.
No exhibit at the great Fair at
Wembly is arousing more telling interest than British Columbia's forest
industries' display. It has been described by the British Press as the
"Finest advertisement Canada has
ever had."
Canada has rightly been called
"The Softwood Storehouse of the
Empire." British Columbia may ns
correctly be described us its first,
last and only stand of big constructional timber.
Thc British Empire controls 1,555,
000,000 acres of Timbe'rlands, or
one-fifth of the World's growth,
but of this about one billion acres
are hardwood, which are less in
demand than softwoods ill the proportion of two to five.
Canada contains approximately
90 per cent of the softwood resources of the Empire. Approximately
half of this huge stand is in British
Columbia, but when it comes to the
highest grades of Clears and the
largest Dimension Timbers the great
British Empire is completely dependent on theProvince of British
Columbia.
In 1923 British Columbia exported
124,000,000 feet to other portions
of the Empire, as against 33,000,000
feet in l'jlfi, nn increase of over
375 per cent in eight years.
There is no portion of the British
Empire with the exception of Canada
that can supply its own softwood
needs. Inter-trade with the sister
Dominions will increase with the
market extension work now being
carried on by our Manufacturers.
It must bo remembered that
trade begets trade. Every shipment
abrosd of British Columbia wood
products furnishes an opportunity
for expansion of our commerce in
other directions.

Torquay, July 11th, 1924.
In thc bay before and below me
lies a great grey Armada, lit up by
the setting sun. It is the Atlantic
fleet, numbering 80 vessels and including the Queen Elizabeth, Bar-
ham, Warspite, Valliant, Malaya
(the gift ship of the Malay States)
Resolution, Royal Oak, Royal Sovereign and Revenge.
There is a B.C. touch in the first
destroyer flotilla to which belongs
H.M.S. Vancouver. Capt. J. B.
Haynes who for many years sailed
in and. out of Vancouver, sends
remembrances and good wishes back
to "The Coast".
We steamed all through and round
this fleet at Weymouth, eight days
ago. It was then too breezy to board
the flagship for tea but many of
our party have visited the Revenge.
But all this is "ahead of the game'
Every minute of our trip has been
so crowded that opportunity to write
has been nil, and the wonder is that
any of us have come through after
twenty days experience of Belgian,
French and English hospitality. Just
to illustrate the manner in which
honors and privileges have literally
been showered upon Canadian Editors of weekly newspapers it may be
recorded that within two weeks we
had been accorded receptions and
had shaken hands with the King of
the Belgians the President of France
our own King and Queen, the Duke
of Connaught, Princess Louise and
Princes Patricia.
But, here again, I am anticipating.
To pick up where I left oft, our
last whole day in Paris was perhaps
the most memorable. We went to
the Sorbonne( University) nnd after
lunch called at the office of 'Xe
Petit Journal", where sixty typesetting machines were humming at
work. I niust record hor; that os
we prepared to drink to this Inni-
ous French paper in the wine of the
country) a photograph was taken
by, flashlight. It was developed,
printed, finished and shown to us
in exactly 3% minutes.
From there a few of us went to
a reception at the home of Madame
Stern. France still has her great
ladies. Our hostess; lor all her 72
years, embodied all the charm and
vivacity that is France. It is impossible to describe, even in many lines
the beauty of her home. It is a veritable treasure house of art:—old
masters, tapestries, carvings, books,
galleries, stained glass, from which
one's gaze travels outdoors to a
fairy garden—fountains and trees,
flowers and emerald grass—all in
the very heart of Paris.
Not a stone's throw awav is the
Palace d' Elysee, to which Madame
Stern accompanied us, and where the
President greeted us with appreciative words for Canada. Afterward
we walked around the glorious
grounds of the palace.
Paris is sheer delight. One does
not have to go indoors.   Come as we

Cm Sunday, June 29, our party
left early, via Deppe and New Haven, for London. A dozen of us
drove round in those speedy Paris
taxicabs, saw new sights and stool
in Notre Dame as the great organ
pealed and priests chanted. Soon
we were whisked away to the aerodrome, and, after nearly four hours
continuous flying, we dropped into
Croydon and were carried by car
to our hotels.
London on Sunday seemed tame
beside Paris. Before one realized
it, there was the Thames, looking
to our eyes like an overgrown creek
Our driver bares his head as we
pass that simplest and greatest of
British war memorials, the Cenotaph. Had your eyes been shut you
would have recognized the indefinable smell of the Strand.
English voices, washbasins in
great hotels, telephones which made
you swear, empalisadcd squares, set
about with leafy trees and bright
with flowers—we had come to the
heart of the Empire. We had come
home.

Lincoln J. Carter's forte, established by a lifetime devoted to the
production of stage melodramas, is
thrills. He is considered, and rightly so, the king of melodrama. It is
to be expected, therefore, that when
a melodrama is conceived in his
brain and presented on the motion
picture screen with its boundless
physical possibilities, it should be a
thriller in every sense of the word.
This is absolutely true in the case
of "The Arizona Express," the Fox
production showing at the Hammond
Theatre, Thursday, Aug. 7th.
Your blood will tingle as you witness one highly dramatic sequence
after another, and when the American Expres plunge's from a trestle
into the river, the cars catapulting
one upon the other and tha cng<no
hissing great clouds of steam, you
will grip the arms of your chair, of
..our I'l'ifihbor, and hold your breath
The good old melodrama has a
place on thc screen—a great big
place and "The Arizona Express"
proves it. An excellent cast appears
in this production, which was directed by Tom Buckingham. Pauline
Stark is the ingenue lead, Harold
lead. Others in the cast are Evelyn
Brent, David Butler, Anne Cornwall
Francis MacDonald, Frank Beal and
William Humphrey.
White Rock summerresort will be
en fete on Saturday,, August 9. The

United States and the League of Nations
A proposal I'or a national reterendum on the question ol' the United Slates
entering the League ot Nations has come from lhe platform committee of the
Democratic Nalional Convention, anil should lhe Democrats carry the elections of members lo the Sonute and House of Representatives, the* proposal tor
such a referendum will undoubtedly be vigorously urged.
Tile League of Nations Is only four years old, but there Is already included in iis membership fifty-five nations representing mote than three-quarters
of the urea and population of the world. Only eight countries are still outside; ilu: l.e'iigue, namely, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Afghanistan,
Mexico, Russia, Turkey, Germany and the United Suites. With lhe signing
of the Treaty of Lausanne, Turkey announced hen- Intention of applying for
membership, and Germany will no doubt be admitted as soon as lhe present
abnormal economic and poliiieal Situation ls settled. Russia ls antagonistic
and ut present ineligible due to her peculiar political constitution.
Playing the game of parly politics ln tile United Stales kept that country
out of tlie l.e'ague>, notwithstanding the great pari taken by the late ex-Presl-
de'iu Wilson and his colleagues In drafting the League Covenant. There has.
however, always bi'en u strong Benlimcnt in lhe United Stales in support of
lhe League of Nations and favorable lo membership and active participation
ln its work by the Unltod States. That sentiment has boon kept alive and
developed by the League of Nations Society in Uie' United Statt's. and by
powerful public men, newspapers aud organizations.
Tho large measure of success achieved by the League during the pas,
four years has also had Us effect in convincing thousands of people: who. in
the United Slates, as elsewhere,)were somewhat skeptical that an international
organization could be created, maintained and be made effective based on a
mutual understanding or International co-operallon and goodwill and lo
achieve international peace and security. To many the Idea seemed visionary,
too Utopian, and altogether impracticable.
However, in a space.' of lime actually shorter limn the Greal War, the
Leagut of Nations has been successful In settling three disputes which other-
wjso would alinosl certainly have resulted in wars; caused lhe cessation of
hostilities between Poland and LUIiuanla; stopped a war actually in progress
between Yugoslavia and Albania, and, through.the Instrumentality of the
Permanent Court of International Justice established by the League, settled
a serious dispute between Great Britain nnd France.
The League saved Austria Ironi bankruptcy antl has established lhat
country firmly on the way to prosperity, thus preventing further trouble in
Europe which inevitably would have followed the break-up of llial country.
ll Is now engaged In similar work for Hungary. .*»
Through its International Labor Bureau, which consists of representatives of Governments, employers and employed, the League Is improving industrial conditions by raising the standards of labor uniformly throughout
Um world, thus removing the old excuse that labor conditions cannot be Improved in ono country because of the lower stanelaril prevailing lu other countries in competition with it. '
Action taken by Ihe League stopped thc extension nnd ravage's qf the
plague of typhus which threatened to overrun all Europe. The League secured the liberation of half a million prisoners of war held ln Russia long after
hostilities had ceased. It is waging an organized world-wide' campaign
against the opium nnd drug trafllc, as we'll as for the suppression of the traffic in women and children. It Is engaged lu scientific research and campaigns
for the prevention of disease, nnd wherevor a danger spot of plague arises
there the League coucentratcs its good health forces.
The1 League of Nations is the1 greatest existing agency doing practical
work for the reconstruct Ion of the shattered nations of Europe, upon the
rehabilitation of which depends lilioSecurity and prosperity of the world. It
is the: one existing human agency carrying in itself the hope of all peoples
for tlio maintenance of peace, and the: ultimate disarmament of the naiions.
II Is currying on llils work in a yearly cost not more lhan the upkeep of one
Hist-class modern ballleshlp.
The Greai War cost Canada over one' antl one-quarter billions of dollars,
noi to mention the sllll mom tragic loss In human life, in bodies crippled und
shattered, In untold agonies of human Buffering, The after-coal of lhe war to
Canada this year will be $56,729,400, or over one million dollars a week. On
tie' other hand, Canada's contribution to ihe upkeep of ihe League of Nations,
the only existing human agency capable of preventing war. will be only $iss,-
68S, or less than four thousand dollars a week. Thai ls our national Insurance premium against war.
These things are having Ihelr effect on lho people of the t'nlied Stales,
and If the League Issue could only he BOpaVated front party politics in our
slstor Republic, Ihere Is little eiutiltt whal the; verellct of the people there would
be. Mence the plan or a nalional referendum Is lo be welcome* In the
meantime, ns the only North American member of the League:, It is Canada's
duty and privilege to interpret the Lyaguo lo our neighbors lo tho soulh. aliel
In Ihelr Intercourse with United Slates' citizens, Whether personal nr in their
business relationships. Canadians should strive to promote senllment favorable to the League of Nations, and show very clearly Ihal they nre looking
forward hopefully lo lhe day when the United Stales wlll occupy Its rightful
plnre in lhe brotherhood of naiions, and In ihat long-dreamed-of Parliament
of .Man represented by lhe Council nnd Assembly of the League of Nations.

Heart Disease Not So
Common As Is Thought
Main Cause Is Rheumatic Fever, Says
Dr. Parklnsw, Great London
Authority
There is a world of good cheer and
encouragement to those who Imagine
Ihey ha\«', or have been lohl ihey have,
lie-art disease, In the emphatic declaration of Dr. John Parkinson, or London, England, In his address to lhe
general gathering ot lhe Canadian
Medical Association In annual convention in Ottawa. Dr. Parkinson
speaks with tlie authority or experience for he is physician in charge' of
the cardiography department or the
London hospital, physician to out
patients of the National Heart Hospital, and visiting eardingraphlst to the
ministry of pensions.
Dr. Parkinson staled llial a great
range of troubles ure placed under the
heading of heart disease wrongfully.
There are many alleged causes of
heart disease, such as nervous strain,
and so on. Which do not really cause
permanent damage lo the honrt, "Tho
athletic heart," like tin: strained heart,
ls a niyili, and iho tobacco smoker
may go blazing' ahead with the full
knowledge that tobacco has nothing
to do with hear! disease.
Iir. Parkinson states, emphatically
that the evidence or tobacco causing
permanent disaasc or the heart is
very small indeed. It Is easy to show
ihat the early reported cases were
dip: lo something else. Smoking has
a slighl effect in Increasing the heart
rale and raising lhe blood pressure!,
but llils occurs during actual amoklng
nnd for sometime afterwards. There
Is no gooel evidence that It causes per-
ninm-nt Injury to Ihe heart.
The main cause: of henrl disease,
according to Ihis eminent Brlllsh au-
ihorliy. Is rlieitninlir fever; nnd such
complaints as palpitation, dizziness,
and fainting weakness need not necessarily give an Impression that heart
disease is present.

Canadian Engineer Has Plan
To Make Seaports In Tne
Heart  Of Tne  Continent
Oceangoing steamers before long
may sail up the SI Lawrence, through
thc Great Lakes aud Into the heart of
Western Canada, reaching up to Winnipeg by Joining Lake Superior aad
Luke of the Wooes into one big sea,
over the waters of an artificially created sixth great lake.
Other shipB can go up lhe Mississippi, up Luke Michigan and across
Uikc Superior and, too, reach the
sixth take.
The project, which would create this
sixth lake, would make possible the
generation or a vhm amount of hydroelectric power and would restore the
hikes to the water level of 60 years
ago.
Antl the cost? It ls estimated at
15,000,0011,
This tremendous undertnklng ls tho
Idea ot ltniph Keemle. Canadian engineer, who has spent almost a lifetime studying lhe water-dotted section of Canada between Lake Superior
nnd Hudson's Hay. Sir Adam llcck,
I'liiiirmnn of the Ontario Hydro Electric
Power Commission,, Is considering the
project.
.An area as large as Lake Erie can
furnish the basin for the sixth great
lake, says Kocmle. Into this basin,
north of Lake Superior, can be diverted the waters that now flow into Hudson's Bay.
All that ls necessary, says Keemle,
ls construction of three dams and
three diversion channels, for the three
main rivers upon which the new lake
wlll depend. Access to the lake
would be effected by the English .and
Winnipeg Rivers, which would become
navigable streams; to Lake Winnipeg,
nnd by canal to Lake Superior.
The project would more than pay for
Itself In a short time ln waterpower
and navigation benefits, says Keemle.
Yet one of Its greatest advantages
ls seen In Its possible solution of the
controversy over Chicago's withdrawal of water from the Great Lakes lor
Its sewage disposal.
"Chicago Is drawing fO.OOO cubic
feet of water every second," explains
Keemle. "This diversion has lowered the Hikes level about five and a
half inches. Every inch the lake level
Is lowered cuts the cargo capacity of
big vessels and coEts'many cities millions to dredge their harbors so big
freighters can continue to dock. The
loss In power ls enormous.
"With the Chicago withdrawal cut
down and the Immense volume of
water added from tho new lake-project, the Great Lakes will be raised to
the level of !>0 or 100 years ngo and
the value lo commerce will be inestimable."
Keemle cannot sec the completion
of his project before another decade or
two, but when 11 Is done, he says, It
wlll become a priceless assel to the
United States and Canada.
"Before long," he adds, "the Oreat
Lakes will bc used to make seaports
In the heart of the continent. Many
of the harbors and channels are shallow and It Ss of-'prime Importance to
conserve thc water supply, to maintain levels and, It possible, to raise
them."

opinion as expressed by those best apprised of the situation—the headmasters of these schools—to Professor
Loghead, of Macdonald Agricultural
College, Ste. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec, who spent three months ln visiting the premier educational establishments of the Brlllsh Isles to bring to
the attention of students there the advantages of n farming career ln the
Dominion, nnd the benefits of completing their scholastic courses at a Canadian agricultural college.
The appropriateness of the professor's novel campaign at the present
time, was attested by Its unqualified
success ln every respect. He was
very cordially received by Lhe various
headmasters, was accorded the thorough co-operation of the Conference
of Public School Headmasters, and his
campaign endorsed and supported by
the British press and public men in
general. His reception by tbe various student bodies he addressed was
enthusiastic and attentive. In all he
visited and spoke at thirty-two of the
principal nnd most representative public schools and colleges ln England,
Ireland and Scotland.
Whilst broadly addressing all the
young men of England completing
their education at its colleges, and
pondering over careers, his message
was more particularly to those youths
contemplating farming careers ln the
Dominions. To such his advice was
not to commence farming Immediately, but to complete their academic
work with a course ot from one to
four years at Macdonald College, and
to Initiate their actual endeavors with
a thorough knowledge of Canadian
ways and methods, and with Cnna-
dlanlzatlon that through the co-operation of the Canadian Pacific Railway
they would Becun positions on selected Canadlau farms for the four
months of summer vacation and carry
out their learning on yet more practical lines.
Professor Loghead brought before
the youth of Britain's colleges ln a new
and forcible manner, the dignity of
farming as a profession ln Canada,
pointing out that to young men It not
only offered a congenial and profitable career, but one which appealed to
men of the highest order of Intelligence and greatest education, demanding the utmost scientific application
and permitting them to rise to the
highest positions the country can offer
ln all Its phases ot exls'once.
This initial campaign, which will
probably be followed up by others, has
unquestionably been successful not
only ln directing the attention of those
already contemplating farming careers

Innovation because, as they pointed
out, openings for their graduates were
becoming morj liinlltd every year,
and they were, forced lo look to fields
of endeavor beyond the British Isles,
of which the overseas Dominions were
naturally the first.
As this appeal, was made to young
men still pursuing their studies, and
merely tended towards directing their
minds along logical channels ot
thought, direct results can hardly be
discernible for some time. That the
campaign will be fruitful, however,
can be judged from Ihe fact that many

ONE OF NATURE'S WONDERS
The Devil's Potholes
MALIGNE CANYON, in Jasper
National Park, is one of the
natural wonders of the entire
Rocky Mountain region, A vast
cleft in the solid rock, reaching a
depth of some 200 feet, and so narrow in places that one may step
across it easily, draws from the
tourist expressions of awe and
wonder at the power of accumulated forces of water,
Tumbling headlong down the
narrow gorge goes the Maligne
River, mysterious as to its source
and for part of its length a subterranean stream, on its way to
join tho quieter waters of the
Athabasca far below. At times on
its passage through the narrow
gorge, it tumbles moro than one
hundred feet in a sheer drop, its
eddies being churned to foam as
the waters beat a tattoo   against
Entrance to Cave, Maligne Canypn
thc rocky sides of the canyon on
their downward leap.
From the footbridges which span
the narrow gash in the solid-rock,
tourists watch entranced the effect of the waters on the rocky
sides. Here and there, seemingly
tired nf the effort ta stand upright
through the centuries, the sides of
the gorge appear to have leaned
toward one* another, until an Intervening rock cast itself into the narrow space and held the walls apart.
Trunks of trees and jutting rocks
form footbridges across the chasm
a hundred feet below the tourists'
feet, as they stand admiring the
glint of the noon-day sun upon the
falling water.
Maligne Canyon is a mecca for
visitors to Jasper Park Lodge, the
splendid log-cabin hostelry of the
Canadian National Railways, and
rightly so, for there are few na
tural rock formations to equal in
interest those found in the canyon.
The Devil's Potholes, curious indentations in the solid rock over
which the Maligne River flowed before the Canyon was worn to its
present depth, are holes worn deep
in the surface rock by the action
of swirling flood waters, when a
largo stone has been Whirled round
and round in an untiring circle
until the stone Itself was worn
small and round, and deep circular
holes have been ground into the
surface of the rock, remaining as
mute testimony to the power of
rusl.ing waters.
Maligne Canyon, while one of thc
most wonderful formations to bc
found In the Rocky Mountains, is
but one of the many natural attractions of Jasper National Park
In addition there are the snowcapped peaks on every side; the
glaciers of Mount Edith Cavell and
The Canyon in Winter
the mountains surrounding Maligne Lake, tho HoodooB of the
Cavell motor highway and hundreds of others. Wild animal life
is abundant, and the calm peace of
the out-of-doors is assured to the
tired holiday-seeker,
And in addition to the natural
beauties of the Park, a commodious
log cabin bungalow hotel; with excellent cuisine and all the comforts
of the modern city hotel, provides
a starting point from which parties
may radiate by motor or pack-
horse or afoot to travel by motor
road or pack trail into the very
heart of the wilderness. It wan
the ddltion of tho comforts nnd
conveniences of Jasper Park Lodge
to the beauties of Jasper National
Park which caused one noted
American traveller to exclaim: "At
