The Ilollairler prides himself °n
his home, a prominent feature of
which Is his garden. But we do not
have to go out of our own town to
find homesof beauty. One of these
Is the domicile of Mr. Chas. Lovell,
for 30 years in charge of the C.P.R.
section hero. Both Mr. and Mis. Lov
ell are English, and so take it that
the homo should bo at once attractive
and   happy.
A good garden Is a bit of the fine
arts, and almost for a life-time Mrs.
Lovell has cultivated the art, even
long before the C.P. R. began glvlnu:
prizes for the best gardens of those
connected   with  their  employees.
It is one thing to keep tho flowers ; It's a bigger thing to make them
the possession and joy of one's neigh-
born as herself. This latter is the
n'trulstlc path taken by Mrs, Lovell.
She, indeed, believes in bestowing!
them In life, not in a sort of post
mortem  way.
The floral gifts of Mrs. Lovell have
not been simply to local people, but
such acts of kindness have been the
lot of such Important personages as
Lady Thomaa of Cambridge, Sir John
Sinclair. Lord Strotl^ona, Sir Osorga
Berry, tho Duke and Duchess oil Con-
naught and the prince of "Wales.
This many-times prise garden will
speak for Itself. "Honor to whom
honor Is due," Ou:» readers will all
be glad to see a picture of this treasure  trove.

Mr, Jun.cs It. Campbell who hns
conducted the butcher business at the
Agassiz Meat Market for the past 5
years disposed of the business to Roy
Whelpton, who is taking it over shortly. Mr. 11. Andrews has been retained
for the time being, and will still be
found at his old place on the Block.
It is quite superfluous to introduce
Mr. Hoy Whelpton In this district as
the fact of him being born nnd raised
in Agassi/ is sufficient and besides
liiin being brought up, we may say, in
the butcher business, his father having built up (be business in tbe first
place to Which Roy has fallen heir.
Roy has had some good training under Mr. Campbell and also at thc
coast. We are satisfied he will make
good nnd are sure that he can depend
on all,the old timers to help him in
Ms undertaking on account of the
late Mr. Joe Whelpton (his father)
who was a very popular man.
The reason for Mr. Campbell leaving Agassiz is because he has seen
a chance to better himself, having
bought out the City Meat Market at
Chiliiwack from Mr. It. J. Bamford,
the largest and beBt equipped meat
market in the Fraser Valley, having
an ammonia cold storage plant valued at $4,000 as well as all the latest
electric machinery, including a Silent
Ruffnlo Cutter, Enterprise Cutter and
Bone Crusher.
Mr. Campbell intends to buy a 20
acre* farm near Chiliiwack and build
a slaughter house on it.
Everyone seems to-be of one uc-
ord, that Agassiz Is loosing one of
its best business men in Mr. Campbell nnd that he and Mrs. Campbell,
with their little family Morag and
inn. will be sadly missed. We wish
them every success in their new venture.

l wish there were a more beautiful
word than scent or perfume or aroma
or smell to give a name to the wild
strawberry's first appeal to the senses.
Our Anglo-Saxon forefathers must
have been loss sensitive lo such impressions lhan we aro, their ono word
Is so inexpressive and so unnecessarily ugly. And all the others have an
exotic artificiality that makes them
unsuitable when one speaks of straw-
berries or wild roses or camp-fires 01
snow on a frosty spring morning.
We picked berries that day until
when at night. I closed my eyes I could
see them hanging in clusters. But
ihere is nothing dream-like or imaginary in the row of strawberry preserves
that gladdens my house-wifely heart.
At noon Murray built a fire and we
made tea, baked potatoes in the coals
—they were not a great success, but
the twins loved them—and then ate
Incredible quantities of sandwiches
and pie and hard-boiled eggs and cold
roast chicken. Later in the season
we picked raspberries—and a wasp's
nest—and wild plums and pin-elionies
and cranberries, but. no other day can
compare with the one of the strawberry picnic.
Our tennis tournament was held one
fall'ly cool Saturday afternoon, Mr.
Macleod and Jean and .lim had drop
ped in and in some way the talk turned to tennis, Maudie remarking thai
we had the foundation for a good
grass court at the side of the house.
One suggestion after another was
made, and in the end Murray and Jim
put up a length of poultry wire for a
net and witli our two racquets and
soft rubber balls belonging to the children we played a series of "sudden
death" games on an entirely new system of elimination. 1 had only play
ed twice since Murray came home,
.lim and .Jean had never played before,
and Murray and Mr. Macleod not since
before they went overseas. Maudie,
In fact, was the only one of us who
was in practice, but while she played

too highly ot what Lydia E. Pinkham's
V '-get able Compound has done for
me. 1 was a nervous
wreck and I just had
to force myself to do
my work. Even the
Bounduf my own children playing made
me feel as if 1 must

not get away from

speak right to my
husband. Thc doctor
said he could do nothing for me. My husband's mother advised me to take the
Vegetable Compound and I started it at
once. I was able to do my work once
more and it was a pleasure, not a burden. Now I have a fine bouncing baby
and am able to nurse her and enjoy doing my work. I cannot help recommending BUch a medicine, and any ono
seeing me before I took it, and seeing
me now, can see what it does for me. I

a steady and uninteresting game ahe]
was no match for Mr. Macleod's wicked serve. in the end, due purtlj tn
luck, portly lo a natural quickness and
partly to the fact thai he made me
laugh so much lli.il I missed almost
every ball, it was Jim who carried off
ihe prize, a chocolate cake thai had
been intended for OUl' Sunday supper.
When Maudie went home sliu sent out
a box of balls, (he boys marked the
courts properly, and we had many a
good game, ,11m developing inlo so
last a player ihal 1 do not know what
lie would have done on a hard court,
Maudie seemed scarcely to have
come before il was time for her lo go
away again. Sin- and Murray, without consulting me, decided thai I was
io visit, her for Thiinksgiviitg^week."
And if you are here next summer I'm
coming again, whether you invite mo
or not," she called from Ihe back platform as the trnjn pulled out.
Teddy came the next day with a
whoop and a rush and much energy lo
he expended. He found many changes
and Improvements about the place and
gave his approval to all.
"But what 1 like best," he confided
lo me, "is tlie difference in Murray.
Gee, lie isn't the same chap that came
here al all! And Isn't the old boy
some farmer? lie seems to have
.taken it great fancy to the life."
He found the children grown, of
course, and he. agreed wiih me ihal.
Rupert had lost much ol his susceptibility lo minor ailments.
"And you yourself seem different,
somehow," he said, eyeing me critically. 'I used to think you'd miss your
old friends and lhe city ways pretty
timd, but you surely bide it well if you
do. Everyone I meet out here tells
me what a fine sister-in-law I have1.
And," with a disarming grin, "you're
not. getting any worse-looking, either."
Teddy, Murray and I were belli glad
to see, no longer talked of coming
farming with us or of seeking his fortune in the North. He had, he told
us, decided to stay in Ihe bank until
business improved, and then he would
try to get Into some other line where
his banking experience would be of
service, hut. where advancement, would
be more rapid.
"Just between ourselves," he admitted, "I'm lucky to have a job of any
sort, when you think oT the number of
fellows who can't get work. This
winter I plan to take the short commercial course that the University is
giving, I don't Ihink I'd ever make a
doctor or a lawyer or a minister, but
maybe J. Edward Aylwin will be
complroller-general yet—about the
same time.that the Hon. Murray Aylwin is Minister of Agriculture."
"That's right, son," asid Murray approvingly, "and in the meantime I
hope you'll spend all your holidays at
Herrington's Hope, so as to get the
farmers' point of view."
"Vou just bet I will," replied Teddy
seriously. "It's the best sort of place
for a holiday, though I've given up the
idea that I'd make a good hired man."
It. was, however, surprising the number of things Teddy found to do during the two weeks he spent with us.
Clad for ordinary occasions in a pair
of riding-breeches, a khaki shirt, and
puttees—which, while undoubtedly
picturesque, must have been fearfully
liot—he was busy from morning until
night. Aided and abetted by lhe
twins hi' "landscaped gardened" the
part of the creek-bank that Murray
had not had time to all end lo, and
built a rustic summer-house in the
psychological spot. So successful
was his rustic carpentry that, he next
constructed what he called a pergola,
and I a porch, at the kitchen door.
"Next summer you'll plant scarlet
runners Ihere," he ordered, "Mother
always has them at home and I'll ask
her to send you some seeds." He
seemed really disappointed that there
was nothing for him to build about
the stable or the hen-house, and to relieve hla feelings he cleaned and oiled machinery and groomed tlie horses
until everything shone. And then
one day when Murray was comparatively free Ihe two of them built a
Heaver Hoard partition lo divide lhe
long nursery into Iwo bedrooms, an
improvement I had long desired.
But of course we did not lei Teddy
work all the time. Our neighbors
wero taking breath between haying
and harvest, and so we could do more
visiting and entertaining than would
have been possible either earlier or
later In the season. Mrs. Mowbray
gave one oi her all-embracing parties
for Lilali Armstrong, the Fenwicks and
the Sevcrns invited us out for lea,
ami one very pleasant afternoon when
Murray had to go to spruce Greek I
took Teddy and the twins lo call on
Mrs. (lagoon. In return we had one
of our Saturday afternoon gatherings
for lhe younger people, Jean and her
cousin, the Seyerns, the Cameron
boys and Mr. Macleod. Antl Teddy,
bless him. made friends wllh everyone—"awfully decent people I call
them," he said lo me.
The one dark spot on the season's
gaiety was Lilah Armstrong—who
WOUld be horrified to hear herself described as a dark spot.
Under ordinary circumstances I
should, I am sure, have been sorry for
the girl, for she is one of (he people
who have never had a chance, bul she
made so milch trouble for Jean and
Jim Ihal I cannot find it In my heart
to pity her. Her mother, a sister of
Mrs. Mowbray, died while quite
young, and left Lilah a child of only
two. Iter marriage had not been a*
happy one and the young father losl
no time in providing the child wiih a
step-mother of his own kind, a shallow, selfish woman who resented
Lihili's presence when she was young
and infected her with her own false
ideals when she grew Into a pretty
and attractive girl.
Health and Comfort
AS age advances our wants are not
many and with reasonably good
health we can enjoy the peaceful
period of life in comfort and happiness.
But unfortunately there are certain ills
which conspire to destroy the pleasure of
this time in life and they arc usually of a
decidedly painful nature.
The kidneys are often the first of the
bodily organs to fail. Then the poisonous
acids which should be eliminated by the
kidneys circulate in the blood and cause
backache, rheumatism, lumbago and the
many ailments which make life so miserable.
There has, perhaps, never been a medicine
So well suited for people of advancing years
as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
This statement is founded on the many
thousands of cases reported to us from
time to time.
The success of Dr.  Chase's Kidney-
Liver pills is due to their direct und specific
action on the liver, kidneys and bowels
whereby the accumulating poisons arc
quickly swept from the system and the
cause of pains and aches promptly removed.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills do not
lose their effect on the system as do so
many medicines but can be depended on
absolutely to bring about the desired
results. Used one pill a dose at bedtime
as often as is necessary to keep the bowels
regular, they relieve indigestion, biliousness and constipation and keep the
system in healthful condition.
You will notice that while the price of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills has been,
increased to 35 cents, the box now contains 35 pills instead of 25 as formerly.
Likewise the price of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is
now 60 cents a box of 60 pills instead of 60 cents for
60 pills.   Edmanson Bates & Co., Ltd., Toronto.
"Lilah Is ray own sister's child,"
said .Mrs. Mowbray to me, "but she is
a handful, and she is so nasty to Jean
that I'm out of patience with her sometimes. But I suppose it isn't all her
fault, so I just do the best I can for
her and perhaps when she is older she
will mend her ways."
Lilah is pretty, there is no room for
doubt, on that score. And what Nature has not done for her she does for
herself. Our quiet, countryside had
never seen such hair and complexion
and eyebrows as hers, such short
skirts and silk stockings and high-
heeled shoes. And her mother is as
artificial as her face. She admitted
at once to being "horribly bored" in
the company of women, but let a man
appear on the horizon and she was all
"I don't know how you exist here,"
she?' said to me the second time wo
mot. "Of course Auntie and Jean
have always lived In the country and
I suppose Ihey don't mind, but you
must bc awfully fed up."
I assured her that I was quite
happy and thai I telt myself exceedingly fortunate in having come to a
district where the neighbors w^ve so
"Oh, bul you're absolutely dippy
about your husband," she said wllh a
slung anil a smlft that I hated her for,
"anyone can see that. 1 would simply die here. I couldn't be like Jean,
contented io live in a nil, wllh nn
company except a lot of older married
people who can't talk about, anything
bul  crops and politics."
"Jean does not need lo be amused
all the lime," 1 pointed out, "she has
resources  within  herself.      And  you
must remember that while there are,
unfortunately, no other girls in the
district we have some fine young men
—Mr. Macleod and the Cainerons and
the Farrells and   .   .   ."
"So far as I'm concerned," Lilah interrupted with another shrug, "the
only one of them that has any pep Is
Jim Cameron, and, of course, he is
just a hick."
"Who is just a hick?" asked Jean as
site came inlo the room.
"Your Jim Cameron," Lilah replied,
"I wish he could have six months in
Ihe city, then he would be some goer.
I wouldn't mind taking him on myself, he'd be quite good-looking once
he got rid of his country Inn, I'm so
dark that I don't, mind red hair."
Jean was probably angrier than I,
but she did not show it.

A Quebec Woman Found Relief and
Wants Others to Know
Mrs. Donald M. McLeod, Sprlnghill,
Que., was a victim of great nervousness until she found the right remedy,
and is now anxious that others shall
profit by her experience. Mrs. McLeod says:—"Some years ago I became run down and grew so nervous
that my life was a burden to myself
and all around me. Every night I
would wake up with a choking feeling, numb all over and my heart beating at an alarming rate. 1 would
jump up and walk the floor and declare I was dying. Then I would
have sinking spells, and all day long
would be so dizzy that I would stagger like a drunken person. I was
afraid to be left alone, and my condition was terrible. I was then taken
to the Sherbrooke hospital, but tlie
treatment there did me no good and I
came back home so weak that I could
hardly cross the floor, I could not
take care of my children, and my
mother did so. Everybody thought I
was dying, and I was just wailing and
wondering when the end would come.
At this stage my attention was directed to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I
got a supply at once. By the time I
had used five boxes 1 felt much bet
ter, could eat better, and sleep)better,
and felt almost like a new woman. I
continued the pills for some time further, and am now a strong and
healthy woman.- I advise all rundown women to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills as I am sure they will do lot-
others what they have done for me."
The new sales tax will not increase
tlie price of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
as the company pays the tax. You
can still obtain the pills through any
medicine dealer at 50 cents a box, or

Union Bank Annual Report
Canada's Western Bank Is In a Very
Healthy Condition
Westerners will review with considerable satisfaction the operations of
the Union Bank for the fiscal year
ending Nov. 30, 1923. It has been
without doubt one ot the most trying,
periods which bunking and business
houses in general have faced for some
time and the fact that this important
institution, which has grown with the
great western country in which its
head ofllce is located, can show a net
profit amounting to $1,033,132.15 for
the year is not only very satisfactory,
but a matter for congratulation. These
figures, it may be noted, are almost
as large as in 1922.
The 59th Annual Statement demonstrates the solidity of the bank. It
shows total assets of $128,299,679.36,
while $57,877,689.11 represents quick
and readily realizable assets, which is
equal to 49.8 per cent, of the bank's
liabilities to the public. Included in
these assets are: Specie and Dominion notes, $10,083,387.90; deposit with
the minister of finance, $396,000; deposit in the central gold reserve, $2,-
800,000; Dominion and provincial government securities, $16,194,856.43;
Canadian municipal securities, and
British, foreign and colonial public
securities other than Canadian, $7,-
035,660.77; railway and other bonds,
debentures and stocks, $3,505,171.06;
call and short (not exceeding 30 days)
loans in Canada, on bonds, debentures
and stocks and other securities of
sufficient marketable value to cover,
$1,096,035.25; demand loans in Canada secured by grain, $9,107,471.93;
cheques on other banks, $4,192,561.55.
One of the outstanding features of
the report is the marked decrease in
loans outside Canada, indicating that
Canadians and the needs of Canada
have first call upon the resources of
the Bank.
The statement shows that deposits
now total nearly one hundred million
dollars, the actual figures being $95,-
621,250.78. Of that amount $67,131,-
589.77 represents savings accounts and
the balance, $28,179,661.01, demand deposits.
The figures contained in the statement augur well for the ruturo of the
west. The institution, through the
conservative policies of those who
guide it, is in a good position, and the
showing made in 1923 warrants the
continued active support of all for a
bank which is doing so much toward
the development of Western Canada.
The Union Bank and the west have
progressed together In expansion and
development, and just as the resources
of the Illimitable west are as yet
scarcely scratched, so the Union Bank
of Canada is but standing on the
threshold of a long period of ever Increasing activity aud added strength.
Miss Mary ' Katherine Campbell,
twice proclaimed "Miss America,"
has takeu TANLAC and endorses it
In a statement recently given to tho
women of America through International Proprietaries, Inc., distributors
of this great tonic. In this statement, Miss America declares that
Good Health is the basis of all Beauty,
and advises women who would be
beautiful to "first find good health."
Her complete statement as given is
as follows: "1 consider it a great privilege to be able to tell the thousands
of women everywhere what a great
tonic TANLAC is. Health is tlie
basis of all beauty. Without good
health, one is apt to be run down,
nervous, underweight, high -strung,
anaemic.       Indigestion    drives    tlie
roses from a woman's cheeks and
robs her of that radiant quality of womanhood that is real beauty.
"I have taken TANLAC and I do not
hesitate to say that It is a wonderful
health-giving tonic. It has brought
relief and good health to many women, and with good health one may
have a measure of beauty that will
overcome shortcomings in faco and
"Itosy cheeks, sparkling eyes, a well-
rounded figure, a lovable disposition,
go hand in hand with good health.
To those searching for beauty, I would
say—'First or all, Find Good Health.'
Tho TANLAC treatment lias proven
Itself a boon to womankind, and I
recommend it."

Pyorrnei* seldom hurts until so
far advanced that the gums ulcerate,
of course, you do not want to wear
false teeth—o plate—all Hie rest of

These perms enter your whole system

Doctors warn that nearly nil germs

no infection nnd germs cannot penetrate into the system.
At the first sign of unhealthy gums
consult your dentist. Your natural
pearly teeth cannot be perfectly replaced by false teeth.
A person should have the teeth

teeth to see if any nre decayed. Tbe
mouth acids—the chief cause of tooth
decay—ore forming all the time. Only

A vicious film clings to the teeth,

-ovlnri's lo create,
i-opi ration by in-
prlses, and Ihu steps now being taken In all lln
wheat pools, all go to prove that the Wesl b
iliviiluals for ihe common welfare nf all.
Hut even so, Western Canada is 8nly in the A.B.C. stage nf learning the
lesson and realizing I tic benefits of co-operative effort. Anil, as slated in a
recent article in this column, the outstanding need of the country is more, nol
less, co-operation; more self-reliance tat the pari of the individual, less leaning ou Governments, and closer, more effective co-operdtlon by all people
iu their respective communities, districts and provinces.
Farmers are devoting much time to co-operation in distribution and niar-
kiling, and they are wise in doing so. But why nol begin at the very beginning wiih co-operation in production? li will he urged in reply that production is, and must be, an individual matter with the fanner. This is (rue to
some extent, but iu other respects maximum profitable production can only be
attained through co-operation.    Let us illustrate:
it remains with the individual farmer lo decide how thoroughly he will
cultivate and prepare his land, and whether ne will sow good, clean seed, Ihe
best he can obtain. And these are important factors in production. Ills
neighbor cannot decide those things for him, nor help, except with advice
and good example. A number of farmers can, however, co-operatively make
arraugments to secure clean, tested seed, and thereby save money for all and
benefit all.
Suppose, however, that one farmer has given careful attention lo cultivation and lias sown only clean seed, but a neighbor neglects his farm, ignores
the law, and allows his land lu become infested will-, noxious weeds. It is
only a matter of lime and seasons when lhe land of the careful, progressive
fanner is contaminated by lhe weed seeds his neighbor is producing, and,
notwithstanding cultivation and good seed, his production is reduced and he,
leo, is hauling and marketing weed seeds instead of wheat. A .-lop could
be put to this through co-operation.
Recently a Winnipeg newspaper slated that weeds cost lhe farmers of
Manitoba last year a good many million dollars—$22,000,000 wo think the figure was. or more than the total of Provincial taxation, heavy as that is.
In the booklet entitled "Is the West Worth While," to which reference
was made lasl week, Ihe following statement is emphasized: "Tlie farmers
complain that the tariff cost them some $9,000,000 in 1922; but never a word
is said about the loss of $160,000,000 lo the farmers ot Western Canada in
1922 through weeds." And the author, in advocating broad, comprehensive
co-operation, asks: "Why can't the Western farmer make a weedy farm as unpopular as a skunk in tlie dairy room, and thus save for himself the millions
ul dollars it costs him annually to grow weeds."
But hundreds of people seem to labor under lhe delusion that the passing
of a Noxious Weed Act by the Legislature, and the appointment of a weed
inspector, is all that, is necessary to solve the problem. Another case of leaning nn the Government, whether it be Provincial or Municipal. Let the Irulh
sink in that if tlie Statute Books contained nothing but weed legislation, ihey
would never solve the problem. It will never be solved, and the appalling
loss will continue to be sustained by the farmers unless and until the farmers
themselves are prepared to co-operate systematically and with determination
- for Us removal.
Farmers did not fight grasshoppers by one farmer doing his duly and remaining Indifferent whether his neighbors discharged theirs or not. Thoy
worked together, fought shoulder to shoulder, farm to farm, lu a word, they
practised co-operation,    And li proved effective.
Co-operation will alone solve ihe weed problem. Legislation, let It bo
repeated, cnnnol do It. II cannot be done ihroiigh process of law. But it
can be done through co-operation by the farmers themselves, if every Grain
Growers and United Farmers local association declined war on weeds, and
made It their business to see that Ihelr respective districts were cleaned up
and kept clean, Ihey would be Ihe means of pulling millions of dollars Inlo Hie
pockets of fanners annually. The annihilation of weeds would well nigh
pa) die freight bills of ihe Western farmer.

Will Be Means Of Developing
Trade Between Empire s Units
The British Empire Exhibition]
which is lo be held In London Ibis
year—the greatest exhibition of Its
kind ever held—has two primary oh i
Jects. The flrsl is lo bring lhe far-;
(lung Dominions of the British Cum
inonwealtli of Nations Inlo closer sen-
timcnlal touch with each other, and
ihe second Is to develop trade among
the constltuonl countries of lhe Empire.
The latter object is perhaps tho
more Important of tho two from lho
point of view of Immediate necessity.
Trade carried ou under fl conditions
is a great Instrument for lhe pronto*
linn of goodwill, 11 leaches roiinllies
thai their econninlc iuleresls are mutually depeiidenl and beneficial. Tho

The British Empire Exhibition has
no parly nor political significance.
The recent general election lias shown
the danger of Importing political
schemes Into the discussion of the
question of trade development within
the Empire There is a vast Held in
which non-party and iion-polltlcnl effort may operate to promote closer
relations between tlie British manufacturer and the Dominion markets.
The purpose of the exhibition is to
exploit that Held.
Great Britain has a vast army of
unemployed. Pessimists tell us that
we must bo prepared to accept that
fact complacently as irremediable for
many years to come. That is a counsel of despair quite unworthy of a people who have faced and overcome difficulties as great in the past. It maybe true thai under the most favorable
circumstances it will be some years
before we can recover to the full the
markets we have lost on the continent
of Europe. Greal Britain must give
Its help to the pacification and ccon-"
omic reconstruct ion of Eurrjpe, for
- that is so important lo our trade and
commerce. We cannot afford lo neg
lect any possible market.
But the British Empire is Ihe greatest undeveloped market in tile world.
It is the most diversified. Tlie products   of   the   Brillsh Empire range

Crown Colonies and India. Tho latter havo already vast populations
which have al present u vory low pur-

Not to Bring De Valora to Trial
It Is staled In Republican circles In
Dublin Unit the government has no intention of bringing De Valera to trial,
and this decision is believed to apply
lo oilier prominent Republican leaders

we could raise the standard of living: more influential of the leaders, bow-
in the Crown Colonies and India we ever, is not at present contemplated,
could add hundreds of millions a year
to the export trade of Great Britain.
Tlie only justification of Imperialism
is that it is leading the subject peoples to a higher standard of civilization.
But more attention to the development of the one-self governing parts
of 'the Empire does not involve lhe
neglect of the great possibilities of
the Dominions. The latter of necessity will develop slowly because they
must rely for an increase of population upon immigration from the homeland. This raises the vitally important question of the better organization of emigration schemes. The
British Empire Exhibition ought to be
utilized as an opportunity for pulling
this matter on a more satisfactory
rooting. If facilities for the emigration of the right type of person, who
voluntary agrees to try his fortune in
the Dominions, can bo arranged between the Imperial Government and
the Dominion Governments, it would
be greatly to the advantage of all the
The exhibition should be valuable
in serving the following purposes. It
will show British manufacturers, the
character of the overseas markets,
and tlie overseas producers the possibilities of the British market. It will
bring traders throughout the Empire
into personal touch with eacli other.
it will give the general public a more
adequate idea of I he colonies as places
of settlemem. The exhibition should
do much to increase trade with lhe
Empire; and as our exports lo overseas parts ' of tile Empire must be
wholly manufactured articles that increase of trade will give the stimulus
to employment so much needed.

Sir Henry \V. Thornton, K.H.E.. was
chusi'ii to head lhe Canadian National
Railways, one of his flrsl acts was to
pin lino nun inn machinery fur aiding
in the colonization ami development
of Canada, particularly along the lines

Ihal one nf lhe orying needs nf Canada was fur more population, and he
has since been quoted, un several oc
caslotlB, as saying I hat If Canada had
a population nf tweflty-flve million
people, Canada would have ud railway
The organization of a department to
look after colonization nnd development was entrusted by Sir Henry to
Mr. W. D. Robb, Vice-President, nnd
.Mr. Tlobb at once proceeded tu build
up the necessary organization to look
after llils most important nalional
work. Investigations, conferences
and careful planning gradually
brought Into being an effective depart,
ment, the effort of the year culminating in Hie engagement of Dr. W. J.
Black, Deputy Minister of Immigration
und Colonization in Hie Federal Government, as Manager of the Colonization and Development Department of
the Canadian National Railways, wiih
headquarters In London, England.
That was early In the Fall of 1923.
Dr. Black proceeded at once lo ('.rent
Britain where he spent some weeks
carrying out a series ot Investigations.
These completed, he returned to Canada, and a general conference of all
oflicers of lhe department was called
and a definite plan of colonization and
development was drawn up and announced. Tills was lhe flrsl definite
announcement on Immigration to be
announced lu Canada.
In engaging Dr. Black, the Canadian
National Railways secured an officer who is probably belter acquainted
with tlie Immigration needs of Canada,
and the best methods of remedying
those needs, than any oilier man in
the country. All his life be has been
connected with the agricultural Industry and lias run the gauntlet of all Its
intricate phases. He was born and
brought up on a farm In Dufferin
County, Ontario, and in 1902 graduated from the Ontario Agricultural College with a Toronlo University degree.
At ills graduation he was appointed
editor of the Farmers' Advocate, Winnipeg, Maniloba, and he held this post
for two years. In 1905 he joined tlie
Government of Manitoba as Deputy
Minister of Agriculture, a post which
lie left Hie following year to become
President of the Manitoba Agricultural
College. He-remained in tills Important
